He is still in a midst of convincing his mother.

Park Jung Min also revealed that he has already made an appointment with his brother’s children to play Korea New Year must-play game Yut/Yunnori, His nephews are delighted when he said that he will be returning home during New Year. Apart from wanting to get red packets from him, they even said that they want to win his money to subsidies their tuition fees.

Though holiday has not arrived, Park Jung Min has been eager to go home because he missed his mother’s New Year’s dishes. He said “I love the Korean Rice Cake soup and Kimchi pancake made by my mother.” Upon thinking about his mother’s cooking, he cried out and said “I really want to fly back to Korea as soon as possible to eat them.”


Idol drama ‘Fondant Garden’ starts its filming from Korea to Taiwan, filming from the rabbit year to dragon year. Jung Min whom has been having a long stay in Taiwan for nearly half a year has received a 5 days holiday. He will be rushing back to Korea on the Lunar New Year’s Eve for reunion dinner and even said that he wants to give his mother a ‘Golden Shop’ as a Lunar New Year’s gift, fulfilling his mother’s dream of opening a café.

Park Jung Min will be returning back to Korea for gathering with his relatives and friends. He has already made an appointment with his brother’s children for a game of Yut/Yunnori which is a must-play game during Lunar New Year in Korea. He praised that his mother’s cooking is the best, his relatives will also gather in his house during Lunar New Year’s Eve for reunion dinner. His mother will be in charge of cooking the dinner for everyone, “I love the Korean Rice Cake soup and Kimchi pancake made by my mother.

Finally, he can be home. What kind of drama in TW? Why did it take so long but no boardcasting yet. I knew the drama did change the main actress, but compared to Korean drama, it took loooooooong. Welcome to your home.

with my experience of stalking/researching taiwanese dramas over the years,I think it's a custom in taiwan entertainment to COMPLETELY finish the drama shooting before it is shown on television. Min's drama took longer than usual because they had to change the female lead and had to reshoot all those scenes with a new lead. Jung Min fighting!
