Since moving here back in April 08, Boy 2 has worked every season for Commencer. We have gotten to know the entire staff of this awesome company very well. Last week Boy 2 did his last photo shoot for Commencer. It was a very fun, but sad day.
The new Commencer catalog was just delivered today ~ check out who is on the COVER!!
For more super cute pictures check out the website:
We have had some wild photo shoots here in Korea, but I think this one takes the cake. I just had to keep reminding Boy 2 that he was getting paid and he could eat as many donuts as he would like. This was the first outfit....not too bad, but what is up with that hat?!?!
And then the one thing he dislikes the most, CURLY HAIR!!!
Well at least they didn't leave it totally curly like they have in the past, but really, a pink birthday cake on his head?! He kept trying to knock it off nonchalantly.
It keeps getting better. Those shoes are patent leather, we aren't even going to talk about hte outfit. Even dressed like this Boy 2 is super cute.
And here he is getting ready for the disco. This time the sandals are GINGHAM!!!!!!!
We let him keep extra money for this photo shoot!

Playing DS between shoots....
The cases of beer in the background, those are for the mom's in between shoots! ;-)
Boy 2 LOVED those shoes and wanted to keep them....all I have to say is "thank goodness they don't let the kids keep shoes".
Don't forget to check out this website for more pictures of Boy 2.
So I know you guys are probably sick of seeing and hearing about this, but this is the biggest ad any of the kids have ever done, and it was so cool when I went to E-Mart the other day and happened upon this ~ (yes, I take my camera EVERYWHERE...one never knows when one might need a camera.)
Since the images are pretty small in that picture, here is a close up....
OH, and they were showing his commercial over and over again on this little screen!
This was cute, Boy 3 wanted to drink the milk his picture was on (haha ~ remember what happened last time he drank this milk?). I ask him if he was sure and reminded him that he did not like this milk. He was as sure as any 4 year old little boy could be ~ I think he was thinking how bad can this stuff be, my picture is on it! Right after this picture he started spitting, gagging and saying 'YUCK, my milk is bad'!
Ahhh, the truth in advertising!
Boy 3 did a fun photo shoot at Olympic park last week and Flat Stanley came along for the ride....
So, I guess we have never seen a 'Korean' squirrel before, because this crazy little fellow reminded us of a mix between a squirrel and a kangaroo! He was bouncing all over the place. We had fun chasing him around trying to get a good picture of him.
Boy 3 really just wanted to play with the balloons.
I loved the scarecrows at the park....
It is so peaceful in the park, it amazes me that the city is so close, but you don't hear it while you are in the park.
This is so fun! There have been Boy 3 sightings all over town! I've heard from people that they have seen him on TV, click here to watch his commercial. People have called to tell me he has been seen on the side of busses, and he has been seen on big posters at many major bus stops all over town. I have personally seen him at 3. Fun, fun, fun I tell you! ;-)
So from what I hear, Boy 3's commercial is airing. I have yet to see it - AUGHHH!!! I've been trying to "Google" it, but no luck so far. When I find it I will post it for you guys. I have also heard he is at all the bus stops & at E-Mart. I really need to venture out this weekend and find him.
Boy 2 worked for our favorite company Commencer again......he is so cute!!
So, I couldn't let the kids get all the glory, I had to join in. On Sunday night I went for my first commercial! Here I am in the hair & make-up chair.
The commercial I was in is to promote tourism to Seoul. What a perfect fit for me - I LOVE Seoul! Now, this really wasn't that big of a deal, as I was one of about 20-25 people in this commercial. I'm sure if I even make the commercial it will be for only 1 or 2 seconds, but it was a fun experience - even though I was cast as the 'middle-age' woman. Damn - when did I hit middle age? I'm still 22 in my mind.
So, wouldn't you know it, they dressed me in a frumpy outfit and put me beside a tall, eloquent, beautiful 20 something professional model from Canada. Come on now, am I supposed to be her MOTHER?!?!
I was picked up at my house at 8PM, at 11:30PM, they finally took us into the studio to begin shooting. Once in the studio, we it took an hour for them to get us situated, moving us constantly. At 12:30 they finally started filming. Filming took just under an hour. All we had to do was smile, laugh and look at the camera. Some people couldn't keep their eye on the camera, so we would have to start over......then someone would scratch their head and we would have to start over....then someone would yawn....this went on forever! Finally, we all got it right!
This was the final set up of the people. See the camera on the left side? When they said action we had to start smiling, laughing and just looking like we were having a good time, the camera would roll down the tracks, when it made it to the end of the tracks the shot was over - we could stop laughing.
The best part of this was that I met some fascinating people (well, and the money). See the guy in the green shirt on the left side of the screen? He is from Congo & he is a professional soccer player. The guy in the glasses in the blue shirt on the right is from India, he owns 8 Indian restaurants here in Seoul. I told you about the professional model from Canada, I also met a professional model from France. There was a famous Chinese, Korean actor, a few teachers from other countries, oh and a rapper - he looked like he was from NY, but I didn't get the scoop on him.
They had Girl come with me, as a 'just in case' they might need her. The didn't end up needing her, but they still paid her & she was very happy with that....she got to stay up till 2:30AM, drink soda, eat donuts, play DS and make funny faces at me during shooting! She was such a trooper!
Proud Army wife and mother to 4 wonderful children. I love to cook, travel, work out and scrapbook life’s adventures when I find the time. We just got orders & are heading back to the states in March 2010. I'm bummed that our time has been cut short, but proud of Hubby for the reason why.
