Note: Please don’t ask me what the restaurant name is; she never mentioned it. The restaurant usually doesn’t accept short term staff (she’s in Korea for school but is leaving soon) and there are lots of rules to follow.
Ah…the minute I saw him walked into the restaurant, I clenched my mouth tightly because I was afraid I would scream out loud. They found seats and surprisingly, it was the same table that Youngbae sat in last time. It was a 4 seat table and Kwon Jiyong sat in the exact same spot that Youngbae sat in! He didn’t have any makeup on today but I could see he still put in a lot of work with his outfit. He did his hair, wore dark colored jeans, Chanel shoes, military style jacket and a light coffee colored long windbreaker to top it all off.
When I asked for the autographs, he was lying on the table to sign. He was really concentrating as he was writing, so cute…just like a kid. I could tell he was in a great mood today. He came into the restaurant with a friend first (the model friend – Lee Hyuk Soo, who was also very very handsome.) He then said there would be 2 other friends coming so I tried my best to stay calm.
I handed them water and helped them order food. I crouched down to help Jiyong order food – they ordered a meal for 4 and a bottle of red wine. After the food was served, I gave them an additional order (it was a seasoning mix I asked the chef to make 2 months ago…when BIGBANG members came to the restaurant, it was to be served for them. When Youngbae came last time, I also gave him it…^_^) Jiyong looked at me then smiled and said thank you.
Finally, his 2 friends came…and then Jiyong said, “You can serve the food now. I’m very hungry.” When the food was being cooked, Jiyong said it was the wrong order and asked if it could be changed. (Actually we’re not allowed to change the food when it’s already being cooked when other customers request it but….Jiyong wanted it to be changed…so who can say no?? You want anything? We’ll give you anything!) He also looked at me like a sad puppy and said, “I’m really sorry but I really want to eat it today..I ordered the wrong thing just now with egg sauce..”
Okay then, so everything was thrown away and we started fresh again.
Lee Hyuk Soo oppa said, “Even though the taste is important but what we really need right now is speed.”
(I turned into superman after that…everything was done with extra speed.)
Jiyong’s friends were so funny…one of the friends asked me,
“Isn’t it annoying that we always keep changing the orders?”
(I automatically said “no, it’s not like that.”)
“It’s okay…be honest. Your heart must be thinking that (they’re always changing…so annoying).”
(I said again, “Ahh no no, I’m happy to do it.”)
And then when Jiyong saw me turn around, he said quietly said to his friend, “She’s my fan”.
After that, I helped them divide up the food, and then the friend next to Jiyong said again…
“I knew you would give it to Jiyong first! I was still grasping onto the hope of whether you would give it to me first…I was waiting with my bowl ready too…I feel so embarrassed now ㅠㅠ”
& so I immediately gave some food to him…
After Jiyong took a bite, he said “It’s so good!” & then ate another one to say “It’s really, really good!” (I was dying of happiness inside)
After dividing up the food for awhile, his friends:
“How come Jiyong has the most meat?!” “Why is it always Jiyong first?!” “Why are all mine vegetables?! I want meat too!”
I said honestly, “I really tried to divide it equally with the 4 portions…” 2 of his friends immediately responded back, “don’t lie!”
I said: “Our staff said when we see Jiyong oppa we have to give him more to eat….besides, our Jiyong oppa is too thin!” Lee Hyuk Soo oppa really looked at me with eyes full of hope..”I really don’t eat vegetables.”
Everyone knows that Lee Hyuk Soo recently starred in a comedy drama – ‘Vampire Idol’ & then we started talking about the drama. I told him I liked watching it & he was really funny in it.
Lee Hyuk Soo: “You saw it? Ahh no, so embarrassing..”
Jiyong looked at me & said, “Did you think the drama was…funny?”
Me: “It’s okay.”
Jiyong: “When I watched the drama, I thought….I’m more funny.”
Jiyong ordered an additional 2 sets of only meat & no vegetables, but since meat was too oily, I asked the chef to add some extra vegetables on the side.
Jiyong: “Give me more mushrooms, I like eating vegetables.”
His friend said that whenever they tag along with Jiyong, they always get to eat good food. Jiyong then said, “I have to eat rice…I’m the type of person that has to eat at a certain time.”
Ah right…I said, “Youngbae oppa also came last time and he also sat in your spot. Seungri oppa came here before too.”
Jiyong: “Seungri ah?”
Jiyong: “Who was with Youngbae?”
Me: “He was here with 2 friends but I don’t know their names.”
Jiyong’s friend: “Out of all the members, who do you like the most?”
Me: “Jiyong oppa.”
His friend: “Who is your favorite member in BIGBANG?”
Me: “Jiyong oppa…”
His friend: “Okay! I’m not going to ask you anymore…I’m going to tell Youngbae not to acknowledge you next time!”
Jiyong: “I’ll be coming back again soon.”
Me: “…-_-!! During the interview, the manager said that BIGBANG would always come here but it’s been 3 months and I hadn’t even seen Jiyong oppa. I told the manager I would quit on the 10th of next month..”
His friend: “How about asking your Jiyong oppa to bring you some autographed CDs?”
Jiyong: “Then I’ll come again next week and I’ll bring an autographed CD for you!”
Me: “………………………………………..!!!!! (my eyes were wide open) Really?!?! Thank you!!”
Jiyong: “Yup yup, you made a lot of good food for me today..ahh next time I come, I’ll bring the other members too.”
