If anyone wishes to bring a dish they are more than welcome. We will be providing a couple of pizzas and soft-drinks. Being at the church, we do ask that no alcohol be brought.
But don't worry, I assure you it will be fun. Nothing religious, just a bunch of K-drama fans gathering to enjoy each other's company and an episode or two of Dae Jo Young. Any one who has attended a previous gathering will vouch for me that it really is fun.
Also, feel free to bring any Korean items you may have. And... we have some Dae Jo Young posters direct from Korea to give away!
Well i knew it would happen..I have to be in St. Louis this weekend. So i won't be able to say hello to everyone in person. I hope it is a fun time........too bad there is only one korean restaurant down there and i heard it is not so great....oh well.....

There is no religious connection to the party. We are being hosted by Pastor Dave and his church is being very gracious to us and allowing us to use their facility. There s a movie theatre size screen to watch the video, and comfortable seats.
I do not know what your religion is, this has nothing to do with religion - no one will try to convert you or anything like that. Our drama fan base has members from many varied religions so do not fear. Our Gatherings are for social reasons and to enjoy a Korean drama video and discussion. That's all. ;D
Do come and see for yourself. It's a chance to meet other K-drama fans and put faces to the names on the board.
Hope to see you there. You're also welcome to bring someone with you if you wish.

Hi all. Sorry I'll miss this one. My bf's mom's 75th B-day is saturday. Her party is in Westmont @ 5PM. Just not gonna work. Hope we can make this a regular thing or we'll have to wait until Aug for the Korean street fest. Have fun!!
Soapygrams, it's as if you were reading my mind. Thank you, Pastor Dave, as always you were the consummate host. This time, beside the refreshments, we were treated to posters of DJY. Mine are already hanging on my home office wall. Thank you.
We had a nice crowd, although I don't think all were board members, so this meant we met some new people. For our next gathering (do you sense that I enjoy these parties?), I'd be happy to make name tags. I think they help in mixing the group and also they prevent the embarassing lapses of memory in remembering names that we should.
Thanks to Pastor David! We got to visit with some old friends and meet some new ones. Thanks to Teacher for making the headbands-they were fun to wear! And for bringing some magazines to leaf thru and see who we could find. :-)
And enjoy seeing faces from DJY in an episode of The Great Wang Gun-what surprises there were!
(just testing for colors, since the smileys have been replaced by questionmarks today.)
