Re: K-Drama Fan Meetings! (Post, Discuss, and Arrange)


Hi Everyone -

Well CantGetEnough has brought up some very good points.

Time: I though of 1:00 because it was closer to lunch time. If we start to gather at 1:00, order our lunch, sit down and start eating, it will be well into 2:00 mode. The food court is really big. However, CantGetEnough point is well taken, how busy will it be at 1:00? I have found that if I want to have lunch with friends (during the week) I usually meet them about 11:30 or after 1:00. If we say, lets start gathering at 1:00. By the time we ordering lunch, sitting down and start talking it should be about 1:30 or 2:00. That will accommodate a leeway in arrival time.

After we eat, we can go around the tables introducing ourselves and explain 'HOW IN THE WORLD DID I GET ADDICTED TO k-DRAMAS'. I am sure we all have wonderful stories to share.

Name tags are a must - CantGetEnough - if you can bring name tags that would be great. I too suffer from a poor memory with names.

I do not have the ability to do posters. The idea of some kind of poster made from the front page pictures is excellent. We can tag tables with them. Can anyone help with this? We really need to mark the meeting spot. Yes!! I want to include everyone (including other diners) If we can have some posters of any sort to make it easier for our family members to find our spot that will help. Do I have a volunteer for poster making???????

I am sure we are going to shock the food venders and other diners in the food court when a “BUNCH” of "BIZARRE" fans show up. OH! WHAT FUN.

I have checked the Amtrak schedule and I will probably take the train up. I want to check out the ABC Plaza store (home appliance) and the Music Plaza as well. That will give me time to browse, stake out a spot for us in the food court (bottom floor) and wait for the fun to begin.

If anyone else can think of anything else that we may need please speak (or type) up. I appreciate any and all input.

Margaret

Good Morning GardenClove

Parking doesnt seem to be an issue. If you go to www.koreatownplaza.com, it has maps and all kinds of good info.

Looking forward to seeing you there

K-Drama Fan Meetings! (Post, Discuss, and Arrange)


Koreatown is one of my haunts...The parking at Koreatown Plaza is attached to the mall. It's free on the weekends. Also available at the mall is the market. You can go there for grocery shopping. Some of you have mentioned kalbi et al. You can find all of that there and most of the people at the market speak English. You can also check out the deli that provides all kinds of banchan (the vegetable side dishes you get at korean restaruants and are a stable in every korean meal). A couple of menu items you might look out for is jajang mein. It's the black bean noodle dish everyone eats on dramas and gets all over their faces. It's really yummy. Up in the music store, there are OSTs of fav dramas and some sheet music as well. And of course, they have a whole section of dramas - they're pretty expensive, but they do offer several you can't get on Yesasia.

Anhyeong Haseyo!

Tankersparks: The excitement is building up. Yes, I will volunteer to make the Posters. My work schedule is slow the last week and first week of the month, so this is a good time for me to do it. I'm not very artsy, but I'll do my best.

I have logged in to the Music Store and I found out they're carrying some DVDs of k-drama that I would like to get so I'll come early and buy me a copy. I'm also interested in one of those pots the Koreans use to cook soup at the table. I'll check that out too if it's not too expensive. Wow, I am thinking of so many things I want to buy, I might be loaded with shopping bags even before we meet. This is how "Bizarre" I am.

EMCEEMA Thank you for volunteering to do the posters. I am pretty sure that we will beable to bring tables together.

TangPriest I have been to the mall several times. I some how missed the Market. Where is it located?


A block or two north of the Plaza (same side of the street) is a small shopping mall. I dont know the name because it is in Korean. The first time I found it, it was like stepping back into the shopping alley behind the Koreana Hotel in Ulsan. The only difference was when I looked up there was a roof overhead instead of sky. Great place to explore.

Re: K-Drama Fan Meetings! (Post, Discuss, and Arrange)


Not sure I can make this. I'm working on it.

Would be fun to wear the BB tag and then when we all get together we could do a little game of 'Who do you think I am'.... We could play a guessing game... Maybe the first person could start out with one clue about themselves (nothing too revealing)....

Someone would have to bring a camera so we could get a group photo! I swear I'd hang it up at work!!

Re: K-Drama Fan Meetings! (Post, Discuss, and Arrange)


I think the market is on the bottom floor--I remember we walked out past it into the parking structure. I haven't been to Kim's, but I have been to that store that advertises all the bedding and the hanboks. I have tried to buy one of those dolls (yeunji) that have traditional korean clothing, but no luck, at least not yet.

Tankersparks, is the train the same one as Amtrak? I'm very familiar with the Green/Blue/Red lines--I've been to LACMA that way, so I know the Redline stops just north of Koreatown. But I've never taken the train. Would really like to do that, and really want to check out the video store. Where does the train stop? How do you change over to the Redline?

I like nsheldson's idea--talking to each other first to see if we can guess who's who!

If the train doesn't work out, I can probably make it up via green/blue/red.

nsheldon: If your problem is transportation, just tell me where to pick you up. If you live in the LA area, then it would not be a problem.

I was going to post the Poster that I just made, but it has pictures of future episodes so I don't want you to see it yet. Would a legal size poster be big enough? It could be folded in half so it will sit on the table for our center piece. Also, I have printed the names of everybody who have signed up so far. Should I include everybody that post on the BB thread too? That means I have to scan each page from the beginning to end to make a list. emoticon

Definitely, I will bring a camera. This is an opportunity that we should not miss out taking pictures.

How exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
