Min-jung falls into Ji-sang’s trap; Yoon-ha starts to be suspicious

Actor Bae Yong Joon (“Winter Ballad,” “Untold Scandal,” “April Snow,” “The Legend,” “Hotelier,” “Did We Really Love?” “The Barefoot Youth,” and “First Love”) got married July 27 in Seoul to an actress 13 years younger, Park Soo Jin. Park was a member of a K-pop group Sugar in 2001-06 and later did TV programs. The wedding was small with only family and close friends at the Sheraton Grand Walkerhill in Seoul. Bae who frequents Hawaii, retired from acting in 2007 and has become a successful businessman whose estimated wealth is just under $100 million U.S. dollars. He also manages his entertainment company Keyeast Entertainment. Bae has a coffee shop in Waikiki called Gorilla in the Café. He also had a healthy concept restaurant Gorilla in the Kitchen in Seoul that is now closed. Congratulations Yonsama on your nuptial bliss! (“Yonsama” is what his Japanese fans called him.)

Planning to get into shape to play a sport

One of the biggest mistakes that weekend warriors make is to think that their sport is their fitness routine. The professionals go to training camp in the off season and train fundamentals. Anyone who is serious about getting in great shape needs to think along the same lines. The possible exception to this statement is bodybuilding which as a sport is in fact, being in great shape, developing all the muscle groups, eating well and living a clean healthy life (if done naturally).

Hot and muggy can be a dangerous combination

The weather has been very hot and muggy lately and I always worry when it is like that, that some people will become dehydrated and sick from it. The elderly, the very young, pregnant and lactating women are most at risk, but we all need to pay attention to our hydration levels during this type of weather. Our bodies are about 60 percent water and that level is vital for good health and optimal functioning. Even losing a modest amount of water (1.5 percent) leading to mild dehydration results in loss of energy, loss of cognitive function (fuzzy thinking) and affects people’s mood.
