Week 26 – Jessica

Yup.  That’s Psy.  Nope.  I did not use a telephoto lens for this photo.  I was literally 4 feet away from him.

It’s funny how the craziest things just fall in our lap in Korea.  My daughter has been modeling here for about a year.  It’s not something we sought out or ever dreamed of having her do.  How does this stuff happen?  A few weeks ago we got a call for an audition and last week we got the call that Anneke had been picked.  Originally we thought this would be a music video, but it turned out to be a commercial sponsored by the government and Bibigo to promote bibimbap around the world.  Crazy.  So, my little girl (actually in the end they wanted both of my daughters in this) got to dance with Psy.  They were both quite unimpressed with the whole thing and barely moved.  Sorry Psy.  At least they’ll have something good for those company ice breaker tell-us-something-we-don’t-know-about-you games when they’re older!

  • Grandma Rita - Well, I guess you girls showed him!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly - So, as I read this post, Gangnam style just happened to be playing in the background. I’m serious. I thought this picture was taken at like a wax museum or something before reading this. That is crazy that your kids got to dance with Psy. I AM SO JEALOUS!!!

    P.S. Is he dancing with two spoons…for his bibimbap?ReplyCancel

  • Jessica - Haha! Yes, for his bibimbap. The kids got spoons to dance with too.ReplyCancel
