    Hyun Joong's Childhood Story (Hyun Joong mother's interview)

    0-4 yrs old, as long as Hyun Joong was lost in the park, it must be because he ran to the singer performance stage.

    Since Hyun Joong was born, he was very popular among the neighbours because of his big eyes, sharp intuition and cleverness.

    One day, in my dream, all in a sudden, I dream of a truck fully loaded with radish driving passed me. There was a huge radish which was of the size of the truck. Withing my apron on, I ran after the truck, trying to catch the big radish. The radish rolled into my apron and I fell down onto the floor. This was the largest radish I had ever seen in my entire life. I was very surprised. Just when I tried to lift up the radish to take a look, I woke up from my dream. I felt very strange: "Is this a sign that I am pregnant?" Therefore, I went to the hospital for checkup. The doctor told me: "Congratulations!". Indeed, I was pregnant!

    Hyun Joong started to walk when he was 9 month old. Before this, although he can sit alone, he couldn't climb, the family members were worried that he might be slow to learn walking. However, he omitted the climbing stage and advanced to the walking stage. All the family members were shocked.

    During his 1 year old birthday, he would offer his birthday steam rice cake for the guests to eat. During the Toljabee* event, in order to let him choose the pencil and book, the family members purposely placed both items right in front of him, instead, he chose the brush which was placed beside those items. Hyun Joong started speaking and counting very fast, but he was most interested to sing, dance and play games.

    (*Note: Toljabee event is used to predict the child's future. In this case, Hyun Joong picked the brush which symbolizes that he will become a scholar.)

    Since being newly wed up to now, our family has been living nearby the SongpaGu Olympic park. Every weekend, there would be a lot of singers performing there. When bringing Hyun Joong and his elder brother who is 1 year older than him to the park for a stroll, both children would be very happy.

    Hyun Joong even got lost a few times, I panicked and searched all over the park, eventually he was always found at the stage where the singers were performing.

    Once, the dance group "Seo Tai-ji and boys" were singing 'I Know' in the park, Hyun Joong actually ran up to the stage to dance. He even played games with the other singers on stage and laughed happily. Hyun Joong was excellent in his studies, it had never come to my mind that he will become an artist. However now that I started to think, he seems to be different from other kids since childhood.

    Kim Hyun Joong excelled in studies when young, had never thought of being a star

    5 - 9 years old, childhood time Kim Hyun Joong

    From kindergarten, Hyun Joong had shown his multiple talents. Solving math sum very fast and drew well. Also, learned to speak and recognized words very fast. His elder brother who was 1 year older than him would always sit still to learn. However, Hyun Joong was the kind of child who could play almost everything but yet could still learn well at the same time.

    We were worried that both children would feel pressured from learning, therefore, we always let them get in touch with nature more often. In order to celebrate their starting of primary school life, our family went for a tour in Jeju Island. During that time Hyun Joong rode on a horse which was many times taller than him and refused to come down. Seeing this, the people around praised him for being so wonderful. During weekends, we always brought the children to fish. This is why until now, if he felt pressured from his artist work, Hyun Joong will always go fishing alone.

    Starting from 2nd year of primary school, Hyun Joong became the class representative. He always handled his own things meticulously. Waking up right after his little alarm clock rang at 6am in the morning on time, completing all his home work by himself. When we visited his school, his class teacher always praised him: "Hyun Joong was very fast in learning. He would not have a problem to enroll into Seoul University."

    At that time, we thought Hyun Joong would use his learning ability to be successful in his career, we had never thought that he would be an artist.

    Actually, starting from 2nd to 4th year of his Primary school, Hyun Joong participated in the Mathematic Olympic Competition and he always won the Gold medal. He also always won in art competition. His medals were so many until it could fill up an entire box. His result was always ranked 1st in the class and often rank 1st or 2nd in the whole school.

    To prevent him from being singled out by his friends, we also sent him for extra tuition classes to learn calligraphy and Hanja. Even in the tuition center, he was always top in the class. When still in the lower primary years, Hyun Joong already obtained the certificate for level 3 Hanja qualification examination. His tuition center teacher praised: "Hyun Joong passed the certification examination even lower secondary students found hard to pass." Our family members were also shocked.

    Hyun Joong hide 300 millions won (approximately USD237,000) in a book as a gift for his brother

    In junior high school placement test, he was enrolled scoring the 4th highest result in the entire school. It was in his 3rd year junior high school when he announced that he wanted to be an artist. As his father was worried that he was too engrossed in his studies, he bought him a guitar to 'rest his brain', this was the trigger point for him to be an artist.

    Hyun Joong started to be engrossed in guitar. Hyun Joong guitar teacher said: "He is very talented, something needed to be learned in 3 years he could master them in 3 months. His guitar teacher once advised his father to let Hyun Joong further his talent in music, but his father was strongly against it.

    There after, Hyun Joong formed a band, working part time and performing outside. There's once, the neighbours said: "The day before, the child of that household was delivering fried chicken." Only then the family knew that he worked part time in fried chicken restaurant. We felt that as a man one had to be independent, it is alright to go through hardships, so we didn't stop him from working.

    Hyun Joong said: "I would follow my parents' wish to study in arts high school, but I will make every other decisions in future." After joining the high school for 1 year, he voluntary dropped out from school. His father & I said: "Dropping out was your own choice, you have to be responsible for your own decision." He was given only 10 thousand won (USD7.90!) pocket money every month.

    Due to Asean financial crisis, our business was affected. We started a fashion business in Dongdaemun. We had to work until 11pm everyday. After getting off from work, I often went to the TGI restaurant which my son worked to secretly watch my son working for around 1 hour before returning home.

    During winter, while waiting for my son to come back home, I kept looking out for him from the window. At around 1am, looking at my son making his way through the knee height snow with much difficulties, I felt pain in my heart. In spite of that, I didn't want him to see my sorrow and always turned off the lights to pretend that everybody had fallen asleep.

    After passing the trainee singer interview, my son would return home only when he was given time off. In order to be a trainee, his pocket money was always not enough. Often, he came back starving by public bus. There were many times, he didn't even have the transportation fee and had to walk home. Despite that, Hyun Joong had never once asked for money from us.

    But his love for his family members is extremely deep. When his brother who was studying in America decided to dropped off from his university due to lacking of school fees, Hyun Joong told his brother: "Brother, please read this book." and gave him a novel as a present.

    When his brother opened up the book to read, he found a 300 million won cheque hidden in the book. His brother gave his father a call mentioning that no matter how he counted he couldn't believe the cheque amount. It was beyond our imagination that while being a trainee singer, he could still carefully save so much money. Ever since he enrolled into the university (Kyonggi University Digital Music faculty), we never worried about him.

    Both of us always told him: "Pray before doing something". Although Hyun Joong said: "Since now elder brother is serving in the army, you can rely on me. Therefore, in the future, don't work in Dongdaemum anymore." We hope that not only he can be a singer but also be able to form a family of his own and be responsible. With this, we have no other extravagant hopes.

    MBC We Got Married is a show where participating celebrities are coupled as husbands and wives to portray the lives of newly-weds. on 11th May 2008(episode 9), SS501's Kim Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo joined the show as 'older wife-younger husband' couple, thus bringing a new situation and a different air to the show

    [official] ☜♥☞ Joongbo Couple ☜♥☞ Newly Wed's 1st Open House ♡Kim Hyun Joong (SS501) & Hwang Bo (GENERAL)♡




    Hyunjoong's Nicknames: Shillang, Kid Groom, Hyunjoongie
    Hwangbo's Nicknames: Hwang Buin, Buin, Yeobo (Honey/Darling/Sweetheart/Lover)
    What Fans Call Them: Ssangchu / Ssangcho / Lettuce Couple, Awkward Couple, Joongbo Couple, Older / Younger Couple

    Ssangchu's love story started on the 11th of May 2008, as the variety show "We Got Married" introuduced their new cast, to portray an older/younger couple.

    Kim Hyunjoong charmed his way to a lot of the audiences' hearts with his 4 dimensional character and witty comments. Many believed that his way of escaping arguments (following his wife, sidetracking her by making her laugh) made their married life more carefree and full of happiness.

    Hwangbo, most popular because of her "General" or rather tomboyish character, was unexpectedly a very feminine wife. Understanding and loving, Hwangbo received a lot of love after the viewers saw how she takes care of her husband, making clothes for him, cooking for him & even preparing medicine when she felt Hyunjoong was stressed with his schedules. But not only is she the perfect housewife, she can also catch up with her husband's competitive nature in the many games they played in the show.

    "Honestly, I didn't express it but in my heart.. you helped me a lot. Before I met you.. I wanted to tell you this.. I used to live a very confined life... I don't know if you'll believe this but besides my friends, no one knows me, what kind of person I am... But I think Buin now knows.

    A lot of my dark and gloomy ways,.. This goes on tv but I'm not just saying this, I think you really changed me a lot.. at the right time.

    In a way I strongly feel like you were someone sent by God. Honestly I just wanted to tell you this."

  • SS501


    SS501 (pronounced as Double-S 501 or Deo Beul E Seu Oh Gong Il in Korean) is a South Korean boy band under management of Daesung Entertainment, also known as DSP Entertainment. The name of the band is a combination of the alphabet and numbers that have special meanings in them. The first “S” stands for “Super”. The second “S” is an abbreviation for "Star". The number 5, 0, and 1 means "five members united as one forever".


    2005-2006: Debut
    SS501 debuted on June 8, 2005 with their first single "Kyeonggo" (Korean: "경고", "WARNING"), with a second single "Snow Prince" released in late 2005. The group was inactive in Korea for most of 2006, although they had a fan meeting in Japan in April.[citation needed] The reason was due to Heo Young Saeng's throat condition which required a surgery, thus resulting in a need for time to fully recover.[citation needed]. In mid-2006, they held their first concert, "Step Up Concert" in Osaka, Japan. In late 2006, they returned to Korea in order to promote their first full album, which was released on November 10 and titled S.T.01 Now. Singles from the album included "Unlock" and "Four Chance". As well as promoting the album on various variety and music shows, they also filmed a show on MNet called SOS. The group also lent their voices for the 2006 animated movie Pi's Story.

    2007-2008: Japanese activities, 'Boys Over Flowers'
    Later in 2007, the group debuted in the Japanese market. A Japanese fan club has been established with the name of "Triple S Japan"; it officially debuted on March 25, 2007, when SS501 had their first official meeting with the group. The group released their Japanese single "Kokoro", alongside multiple versions, including one with all members and five others featuring the members individually. The single debuted at #5 on the Oricon chart, and move to #3 the next day. A full album was released later in the year.
    In 2008, SS501 returned to Korea with their single Deja Vu released on March 8, 2008. The title track was the first song to be promoted, and they started their comeback on music channel M.Net's M Countdown.[1] After success with their single "Deja Vu", they began to promote their second single, "A Song Calling For You". They performed their Goodbye Stage on Music Bank on June 6, 2008, to return to Japanese activities.

    On October 2, 2008, an official announcement confirmed that leader Kim Hyun Joong was part of the cast for the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango, officially named Boys Over Flowers. It was broadcast on KBS in the first half of 2009, with a total of 25 episodes and a few special episodes.

    With both Park Jung Min (Danny Park on the musical Grease) and Kim Hyun Joong on solo activities, the next SS501 album was pushed back to July 2009. As such, the other three members released a project album named U R Man in November 2008. The first single released was "U R Man". They also promoted their single for the Boys Over Flowers soundtrack, "Nae Meoriga Nabbaseo" (Korean: "내 머리가 나빠서", "Because I'm Stupid"). Due to the success of the drama, the song had a high number of downloads.

    2009: Solo collection, second mini album and first Asian tour
    They released their official second Japanese album on May 13, 2009 titled All My Love and had a promotional tour in Japan in support of the album. The group also released their Solo Collection, consisting of the individual members' songs.
    After concentrating on their individual activities, the group made a comeback and released their second mini album titled Rebirth, with the limited edition being released on October 20, 2009[2][3] and the normal edition on 22 October. The limited special edition album included two posters and a 100 page photo diary. Their comeback song "Love Like This" was well received, winning two Music Bank awards and one Inkigayo Mutizen in November. The group ended promotions for the album on November 29, 2009.
    On August 1, 2009, the group started their first Asia tour,[4] visiting Seoul, Tokyo, Taiwan, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

    2010: Third Mini Album
    The group held a concert in Thailand, February 2010 before holding their final concert in Seoul to conclude the tour. They were initially going to release a new mini album on May 1, 2010 (which signifies "501"), however the date was later on pushed back because of the need to "add the finishing touches."
    On May 22, SS501 was one of many popular groups that performed at the 2010 Dream Concert. And being that Kim Hyun Joong was still recovering from his injuries, they only sang ballad songs, which are Only One Day and Let Me Be The One.
    A day after their performance at the Dream Concert, one of their mini-album tracks, "Love Ya" was leaked on the internet. Not long afterwards, the teaser for the comeback track was released. On May 24, 2010, due to the leaks, DSP Media decided to release SS501's new mini-album, Destination online, which contains six tracks in total. Their first win for their title track "Love Ya" was during their second week of promotion in Music Bank, on June 11, 2010. They also took first place the following week. It was announced from Daesung Entertainment on June 18, 2010 that SS501 will end "Love Ya" promotions due to contract expiry with DSP on June 7, 2010.
    On June 28, 2010, It was officially announced that the group's leader, Kim Hyun Joong, signed with a new entertainment(KeyEast Entertainment) Bae Yong-joon's agency to reach his goal as an actor . It is unclear if SS501 will stay as a group, or will go on with solo activities.


    Although most of their music is composed by various people, the members of SS501 have also contributed to their albums. Kim Hyung Jun and his brother, Kim Ki Bum (U-KISS) composed, under the name "H&B", the songs: "Want It", "The One", "I AM", "Hey G"[5]. Kim Hyung Jun also wrote the lyrics of the song "Obsess" in their Rebirth album. Heo Young Saeng composed his solo song "Is It Love?" and "Until Forever", one of the tracks in SS501's album Destination. Park Jung Min composed the song "Kiss" which is sung by Rainbow, he performed the song at their Persona concert.

    :spinstar:[HIGHLIGHT]Kim Hyun Joong's Real Self[/HIGHLIGHT]:spinstar:

    His near-perfect appearance,
    coupled with his natural, unassuming and straightforward personality,
    translates into a boy who embodies the charisma from two polar ends.

    He is the leader of the band, SS501,
    and he's also the young man
    who has shone exceptionally through his acting debut in Boys Over Flowers;
    Kim Hyun Joong who is only 23 years old this year.
    When we talk about Kim Hyun Joong,
    there are two main things that people would say about him normally.
    One is to describe him as the boy with perfect looks,
    and the other is to call him an ET or 4D (4-dimensional).

    Towering at over 180cm, he's tall and lanky with a near-perfect frame,
    and his personality is just very interesting, cute and adorable.
    His thinking and logic are often as hard to read and as unpredictable as aliens.
    That's why everyone is used to calling him 4D.
    This is Kim Hyun Joong whose popularity is near explosive right this moment.

    As a singer, he often and quite expectantly gives people the feeling that he's cool.
    But when watching him on variety programs,
    one is often shocked and wonders, "Can he really show others this side of him?"

    Kim Hyun Joong is someone who does not hide and is not pretentious.
    Even the way he wrapped himself in the blanket
    and just plain refused to get out of bed was a hot talking point,
    and this alone made him very popular amongst the production team.
    Because his performance and reactions are so unguarded and natural,
    and the way he's not pretentiously coy only serves to make people adore him more.

    As the leader of an idol group, he will sometimes show his matured side,
    and will work hard and not bring trouble to others.
    But there're also times when he acts in a self-centred manner.
    Such a natural and wide-ranging character has also become part of his charm and magic.
    An influential person in the industry once said,
    "Although Hyun Joong may look nonchalant and doesn't care for much,
    he's actually full of humanity."

    Although there're times when his actions baffle everyone around him,
    and people also worry about his 'sudden outburst or unexpected reaction',
    why then does everyone still like him so much?
    What is Kim Hyun Joong really like as a person?
    Let us take a real good look at his real self.

    :spinstar: [highlight]INTERVIEW AND PRE DEBUT PICTURES [/highlight]:spinstar:

    Credit: as tagged + Kim Hyun Joong…My Cute [email protected]
    repost: http://hyunjoongkaje...er.blogspot.com

    hahaha he looks like a stick
    --- tall lanky and pretty nerdy with the glasses

    this pics i have seen before,
    it was during his rock band days...

    maker up free, freshed faced hyunjoong.
    no wonder even before debut he was already attracting attention from people,
    especially women

    another proof of how much a baby face he is...

    going to school...?
    look here first and grant us a moment of heaven

    Kim Hyun Joong, who is both the leader of SS501 and also an actor...
    The up-and-rising star Kim Hyun Joong who has won praises and attention through Boys Over Flower...
    Are there worries hidden behind his success?
    What, really, is going on?

    "Refuse to let anyone look down on me!
    I am only focused on acting out the role of Yoon Jihoo..."

    In the first half of this year, there's a drama that every household in Korea knows about,
    and that's the drama adapted from the Japanese manga writer Yoko Kamio's work, BOF
    that captured the whole of Asia.

    Kim Hyun Joong's role is Rui Hanazawa from F4, Yoon Jihoo (Korean version).
    His performance won the hearts of the young women of today.
    But at the beginning when accepting the role, it was really one big challenge,
    and during that time the majority questioned his ability to handle the role.

    So, does Kim Hyun Joong have the determination to really become an actor?
    This is also one important question.

    "Actually I did not have any thoughts (of acting) during that time."
    He did not even hesitate to consider when he answered that question.

    Then, what was the reason that had caused him to make up his mind,
    and also to use this acting opportunity to capture the viewers' eyeballs?

    "Actually from the time of my debut, I had never even once thought of acting.
    It's just this one lucky chance that made me into (almost) an actor.
    At that time, I was thinking that since the opportunity is here,
    so I just decided to show everyone my acting effort that I would try my best to do!"

    It was with such a thought that Kim Hyun Joong started his first contact with acting.
    What's more his maiden experience in acting had to be this significantly important piece of work (BOF)
    which had already caused such a storm in Taiwan, Japan and other parts of Asia.
    For this young man who was first trying his hand at acting,
    he must have felt a tremendous amount of stress and pressure.

    But Kim Hyun Joong said, "I didn't want people to see the part of me that is not as good,
    and I couldn't have people look down on me."

    And most importantly,
    he did not want to see the reputation that SS501 has so painstakingly built up through the years
    go down the drain just because of his poor acting.
    At that time, acting was still so unfamiliar to him,
    he could only digest the script and the lines in the way that he knew best how to,
    and to give his all to immerse himself into the character.

    "I bought two copies of the original manga and placed them in my room;
    the idea was so that I could read and do research anytime I want.
    I didn't want to portray the Rui Hanazawa from the Japanese manga whom everyone is so familiar with.
    I wanted to add abit of my own magic to create a totally new character.

    My thinking was to retain the essence of the original story,
    but put more heart into showing a Rui Hanazawa
    who can give up everything and not have a care in the world just because of a woman.

    At that time, really, all I wanted was to give it everything I have to do a good job.
    Although my condition wasn't very good when we first started filming,
    but I really didn't want people to laugh at me, and I was so afraid of being mocked.
    I was just thinking of all these things during that time,
    and just didn't bother about anything else and gave it everything I had and did my best."

    In Boys Over Flowers, Rui (Jihoo) was a quiet man
    who, at the same time, was so mysterious and hard to comprehend.
    Whenever his beloved Jandi was in trouble,
    he would appear right beside her
    just like the ever-elegant and gallant Prince Charming riding on a white horse,
    like a prince who would be there just for her.
    This alone was already enough to capture any woman's heart.
    Once they've laid eyes on him, it's not possible to look away,
    and they would literally suffer from Jihoo-fluenza.

    "But in the beginning I was painfully shy and did not dare to act out anything at all.
    During the first broadcast, I was so shy that I could not watch it with my family.
    When it was about to air, I hid myself first and watched it on my own (laughs).

    At that time, I totally could not grasp and understand the meaning of acting,
    and I only did it my own way.

    Like there was one scene I was supposed to show that I was very angry
    and had to hit the steering wheel to express my anger.
    But I did not know how to control my own strength,
    and ended up using alot of force to hit the steering wheel,
    so much so that even the the sleeve of my clothes was ripped and torn."

    But it was precisely such training and experience
    that Kim Hyun Joong slowly developed an interest in acting,
    and came up with his own style and method in terms of acting.

    "This is really a method that I had figured out on my own.
    At least 20 minutes before the actual acting,
    I will go and create the space and emotions needed for the character.

    And the second thing is that the moment the PD shouts CUT,
    I have to jump out of the character immediately.

    When we're filming, we don't always film at the same place all the time,
    we will move to different places or sets,
    so this method is very useful when it comes to treating scenes
    that require different emotions and feelings.
    And it's also a very important technique."

    If I do not get rid of Yoon Jihoo,
    I too will not be able to grow

    In order to portray the character Jihoo perfectly,
    his room was full of the manga books.
    And in order to act out the different feelings required from different scenes,
    he has also learnt to slip in and out of character...
    All these are the effort he's put in so that he could do better.

    But his hard work and effort did not go to waste.
    Yoon Jihoo has become synonymous with the romantic perfect guy.
    Nowadays, no matter which generation,
    all women will say that their ideal type of man is Yoon Jihoo.

    Regarding this social phenomenon,
    what are Kim Hyun Joong's thoughts?

    "To be able to be a part of this drama...
    that's absolutely and certainly one very fortunate thing in my life.
    To have received such love as Yoon Jihoo, I feel very happy and blessed.

    But to be honest, Yoon Jihoo is completely different from me! (laughs)

    Although there's some similarity from the aspect of our gentle nature,
    but I'm more like than man than Yoon Jihoo, more masculine!
    So i think there isn't much common ground between us.

    And more importantly,
    Yoon Jihoo is someone who will only appear in Boys Over Flowers,
    while I'm a real person."

    Kim Hyun Joong, he wants to rid himself of Yoon Jihoo.
    He said this in a very natural and straightforward manner.
    "If I don't rid himself of him, then I too will not grow,
    and there won't be any improvement."
    He smiled as he was saying this.

    To continue to charge forward one step at a time after achieving a certain success,
    that's his goal in life.
    Where's the source of the motivation propelling him to do things like this?

    "O... Actually in my mind, there're three kinds of entertainment work,
    music, acting and variety shows.
    I do not wish to just concentrate on one kind, I hope to do well in all!"

    His reply surprised the editors.
    We know he cares a lot for music and acting,
    but we did not expect that variety programs too have a spot in Kim Hyun Joong's heart.

    "I really love variety programs.
    Because I think in music, acting and in variety shows,
    different sides of Kim Hyun Joong are being shown.
    I really wish that when viewers see variety programs that I appear in,
    they will immediately think that so long as there's Kim Hyun Joong,
    it will be something interesting.

    Even if the camera's following me and filming me really close,
    I don't find it annoying (laughs)
    Coz I think one is not an entertainer if he/she hates having the camera on him/her.
    And he/she has also lost the right to be an entertainer.
    I want to do the work that I'm supposed to do with a happy heart.

    I really enjoy signing autographs for my fans.
    And it's precisely because I'm popular,
    that's why there're people wanting my autographs,
    so I think signing autographs is great.

    No matter when, I hope to be able to enjoy this kind of popularity,
    and it's also doing something good for people who like me."

    My goal is not just to penetrate the world,
    I want to become the No.1 star in the universe!

    Right from his debut, Kim Hyun Joong has already made up his mind
    to work hard for the fans who like him.
    But what about Kim Hyun Joong's inner heart?
    Aren't there times when he feels pain or unhappy?

    "Of course there will be times like this.
    When I'm unhappy, I will go to the office to practise my dance.
    Coz when you're practising, you will feel that you're growing and getting better."

    Korean entertainers all like to say this:
    To work harder and let everyone see a better form.

    But these words, when coming out from Kim Hyun Joong's mouth,
    come across as unusually real and sincere.
    Although his expression is still that of nonchalance and looking as though he doesn't really care,
    but from his expression, we could see this young man's true heart.
    All he wishes for is to make the people who like him, happy.

    This Kim Hyun Joong as we know him has already returned to SS501,
    and they're planning a series of activities.
    Not so long ago, they were in Japan to promote the Japanese album All My Love
    that has just been released in Japan.
    Next, they will hold a concert in Budokan in Japan, and also to warm up and gear up for their Asian tour.

    "Am really looking forward to the performance at Budokan in Japan!
    Although many people would say it's still too early for us to go to Budokan,
    but we absolutely will make this concert a great one, a successful one!

    I know we still need to be put in a lot more hard work,
    like in video, music, stage effects, and also live and stage performance,
    or even the combination with magic, etc...
    We wish to hold a very interesting concert.

    We want to make it such that friends who come and see us must experience
    at least one moment that they just can't take their eyes off the us,
    or think that the stage effects are really so great...
    Just one moment of that will be enough.

    We will continue to have more exchanges and discussions with the members and the staff
    to discuss about what we want to present to everyone.
    But it will definitely be the best...!"

    There is no trace of Yoon Jihoo in the Kim Hyun Joong in front of us now;
    it has been replaced by the leader of SS501.
    Kim Hyun Joong, his face is full of such confidence.
    Then, lastly, let us ask him, "What is your goal?"

    "Hehe, my goal is not just to become an Asian star.
    Not even the world.
    I want to be the No.1 star in the entire universe!!"

    This boy... he really is a boy who can make people feel that whatever he says is interesting.
    What would his next step be?

    The man of the universe: Kim Hyun Joong!

    Let us wait and watch out for more shiny rays to emit from you!

    (No matter if it's music, acting, or variety programs,
    I want to do them perfectly!)

    Kim Hyun Joong's 4D Test:
    Rui Hanazawa (Yoon Jihoo) vs Kim Hyun Joong

    1. Personality

    "He's not at all like Jihoo..."
    His co-stars all agreed unanimously.

    Hyun Joong is different from the calm, steady and quiet Jihoo;
    he's always joking at the filming sets,
    and he's also the livewire who is the source of laughter and giggles,
    he's completely demonstrated his pure and innocent nature.

    "I'm a lot more manly than Jihoo.."
    Hyun Joong himself emphasized this point.

    2. Dressing

    Jihoo basically dressed in white-coloured clothes that are princely-looking.

    But Hyun Joong himself prefers black, and even his bags, etc, are mainly in black as well.
    Black on him seems to have the effect of letting people know of his existence as a leader.

    3. Music

    Jihoo is a artsy performer of musical instruments.

    Although Hyun Joong too loves music, and can play the guitar, piano, etc,
    there was once he was supposed to play the guitar in a program,
    he was perhaps too nervous, so his performance was not really perfect.
    But everyone still think he's very cute, ya?
    That is his charm!

    Kim Hyun Joong illustrates a picture of his ideal woman
    by sayykimchi on July 16, 2010 at 1:58 am

    In the recent issue of the SBS Inkigayo magazine, Take7, Kim Hyun Joong’s comical illustration of his ideal woman is becoming a hot issue!

    Kim Hyun Joong expressed:

    “It feels awkward since it has been awhile since I’ve drawn. My ideal woman is one with an oval-shaped face along with long and straight hair. If she’s innocent and sexy, that would be even more attractive”

    “An innocent+sexy woman is my ideal type”





  • :spinstar: [highlight]KHJ'S BEST FRIEND [/highlight]:spinstar:


    Kim Hyun Joong, the pretty boy leader of SS501 and a favorite on We Got Married, when asked in an interview today, “Which artists can you call and hang out with at 2am?” Answered: “Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Top. These three and I are best friends. We never bring other people along when the four of us are having a get together.”

    Awww, isn’t that just cute? I can just picture the four of them, drinking soju at 2 in the morning, with that Asian glow which probably looks sexy as hell on them, and getting a little flirtatious with each other. Not a bad mental picture.

    Forget the rest of the cast of Hana Yori Dango, Hyun Joong has got his F4 right here. I wonder if Top’s three brothers from a different mother will go visit him in the hospital.

    With that said, four hotties are always better than one, and that is the beauty of boy bands.

    this are the childhood friends HyuNjoong cherished most..

    Kim Hyun-joong said, "Romantic acting makes my toes and fingers shrink... I want to do some tough guy roles"

    "If I cared about the viewers rating, I would've done big dramss. I was really ok with my dramas".

    'Naughty Kiss', which ended last October, was a total failure viewers rating-wise. Even though it recorded 8 million viewers for YouTube special version, TV version ended quietly.

    Compare to the careful question, Kim Hyun-joong's answer was cool. “Everybody near me asked that I was okay, but I was really okay. I was because it wasn't the worst viewers rated drama. I told people that all I have to do is go up now.”

    Kim Hyun-joong confessed that he also learned responsibility as an actor from this drama. “I learned how hard it was to lead a drama by oneself. I don't regret my work since I did my best. I love to have high viewers rating but I don't cling to it. I rather try to do a drama that I can proudly show to my son/daughter later in my life. 'Naughty Kiss' will be one of them.”

    He also revealed his thoughts about classic mellow or action drama/movie. “Yoon Ji-ho from 'Boys over Flowers' or Baek Seung-jo from 'Naughty Kiss' are totally different character from me. Their lines are so cheesy. I think they were cheesy because those two dramas were school-based dramas. I want to do some other types of character for next drama. Someone who likes to yell and full of testosterone.”

  • [highlight]KIM HYUN JOONG THE MAGICAL ENDORSER[/highlight]


    Kim Hyun Joong the Perennial Advertisement Endorser/Model

    By: Aprilstar for http://hyunniespexers.wordpress.com

    Seattle, Washington

    End of the year or the beginning of a new year usually means old contracts ended or renewed and new ones begin for advertisements endorsed by celebrity stars. This meant beauty products, garment, accessories and an array of commercial product endorsements ended or renewed in 2010 and in 2011 new ones began for Kim Hyun Joong. We are beginning to see a spate of promotional pictures flooding the internet before it appears in print and other medium. There have been personal appearances carried out just recently in several countries in Asia as well as future ones earmarked for the endorsed products.

    Kim Hyun Joong is not new to the field of endorsements. The entire five years that has gone by since he debuted in 2005 by was spent between concerts and variety shows doing commercial endorsements for food , drinks , cell phone, credit card, shoes, bags and other accessories, garments(formal, business, casual ,sports) and of course beauty products. He used to advertise products with his SS501 members, on his own and even while acting in dramas. In dramas, product placements were in continuous display all throughout the episodes. Hyun Joong made BOF and PK like huge fashion ramps all throughout its broadcast showing. The cell phone advertisements were cleverly packaged to run like a mini story with Hyun Joong as one of its lead actors. The company took advantage of Hyun Joong’s unique personality. Who could ever forget the beautiful Hyun Joong’s embarrassing brief encounter with an ahjumma who did not recognize him while he got a discount out of a privilege card? Or a foxtrot singer who couldn’t get gasoline because his card was not accepted? And all the wonderfully funny Why Not commercial?

    What contributes to Hyun Joong’s staying power in the ever changing requirements of the advertisement/modeling world? Well, he has the basic attributes as enumerated for example in the standards of modeling that seem not subject to the vagaries of changes. He has the prescribed height of at least 5’8”or 172.72 cm, Hyun Joong is 181cm., weight from 140(63.5 kilos ) to 160 (72.7 kilos )pounds ,Hyun Joong is about 68 kilos ,although this depends on the height meaning it has to be proportional . A prospective model has to have a well toned body and in shape. We have seen him do his Jitjoong and other evidences of his unmistakably sexy body. Being an exercise, fitness buff and sports practitioner has given Hyun Joong an advantage here. As a dancer, Hyun Joong has also the flexibility to do even unusual poses. Look at his past fashion house advertisements and see how he flexed smoothly and effortlessly his entire body. Our checklist says his score is perfect!

    The endorser must have perfect skin, teeth ,a photogenic face that is oval shaped ,has almond shaped eyes, strong cheekbones ,good jaw line, attractive neck shape , straight nose and attractive lips . Hyun Joong ‘s pictures in blogs ,face book and what are twitted do not lie ; in fact they reveal so much specially shots now are done in high definition .His beauty product advertisement posters hung in store display and in magazines attest to his awesome features many females envy. His smiles are like rays of sunshine that lights up the entire room. When he endorsed a fried chicken brand he appeared more delectable than the meal. Nevertheless, he is said to have increased the sales for the store. His checklist scores here: perfect!

    A well sought after model /endorser must have the positive attitude of being versatile to the requests of photographers as to the concepts, themes, and various idiosyncrasies of situations of the work in progress. Being professional meaning coming to shootings prepared, coming on time, being cooperative and easy to work with. It was reported that snow storm, huge traffic even a just recuperating body from accident did not prevent Hyun Joong from fulfilling his shooting appointments. The model/endorser must also be able work with a strong team spirit with the photographers and other staff in the shoot. It helps that Hyun Joong has strong behind the scenes experiences working long hours even up to wee hours of the morning as a performer. YouTube has many examples of Hyun Joong shooting his commercials showing his work ethic. Our checklist says perfect again!

    Model/endorser must have a strong portfolio serving as reference and testimony to what one has done in this field .Hyun Joong has an impressive portfolio working with up and coming brands as well as known brands for more than five years . His portfolio indicate he is popular, he has face and name recall as CNN says in a survey they made ,”if Hyun Joong did not endorse the product it is not worth having”. Hyun Joong’s score still perfect!

    In fashion modeling alone, there are 10 different types of modeling one can work in. As far as Hyun Joong is concerned, he has worked in four areas: fashion runway for MVIO and the late Andre Kim , fashion editorial modeling in magazines for example Vogue Girl , catalogue modeling for Basic house and print modeling –Basic House , I’m David and Hang Ten (I stand corrected if Hyun Joong had worked in more than 4 categories) . Print modeling is said to bring in the most financial reward (higher fees) because it is seen by millions therefore is paid more but it is also the most difficult. His pictures endorsing the product are now displayed prominently in public areas in many countries in Asia. In China, Hyun Joong’s publicly hung picture for I’m David covered the exposed sides of three floors of a building. A familiar beauty product’s (The Face Shop) display of his enlarged photo and standees inevitably attract customers to have photo sessions with them.

    In Korea, the land of high consumption and high competitiveness, looks that create lasting impressions in any endeavor is much sought after. It is no wonder that, according to an informal survey made by Arirang many are preoccupied with their looks. Those who gave their opinions said they were dissatisfied not only with their facial features but also with their bodies that they are willing to spend hard earned money to go to cosmetic surgeons. Besides alterations of looks through surgery, many prefer to go for strategic makeup, and also opt to change seasonal wardrobe. Do models and endorsers influence the coveted looks of many? Definitely. When Hyun Joong was sporting a new hairstyle for his PK drama, it became a highly searched item in the internet. When companies seek the service of Hyun Joong to serve as their product endorser they took him because he “has that sophisticated appeal, has that soft masculine and gentle beauty to project their concept in their merchandise”. They also acknowledged Hyun Joong’s flawless skin, healthy looks and neat appearance. These features attract a wide range of age sectors of prospective consumers as well as maintaining their loyal ones not only in Korea but worldwide. Hyun Joong ‘s status now as a Hallyu star certainly is a plus factor in his appeal. In other words, Hyun Joong‘s endorsement of products is sure to reach out to millions as well as calculated to provide solutions to many‘s appearances woes.

    The model, the company producing and marketing the product and the consumer are in a triangle of relationship so to speak. The aspiration of consumers for beauty, an image, a lifestyle is personified by a model and the company providing the means by which to attain these current ideals. Kim Hyun Joong the model-endorser, with his ever changing image with a different hairstyle one day and another the next day , outfits and accessories matched to the changing seasons , dispositions to go by the looks , has a long way to go to influence how our looks are going to be .

    SS501 Kim Hyun Joong - What's Behind the 4D Personality?
    By Kate Kim

    Kim Hyun Joong... the flower boy with a 4D personality. He's the Leader of SS501. His name is always confused with that of Kim Hyung Jun (the youngest member). That's why Triple S fans call them Leader and Baby.

    I have a lot of things to say about Hyun Joong. He's my favorite member actually. I love all 5 of them, but Hyun Joong really warms up my heart to the highest level. He is known as a perfectly handsome face, but he is something MUCH more than that. I will try to write as best I could of what I know about Hyun Joong, but still I know it won't be enough.

    4D Personality

    He is known to be a 4-Dimensional (4D) guy, meaning a person with a unique personality that's out of this 3D world in terms of thinking, speaking, and in terms of action. I've never even encountered the term 4D before, and I would never have known it if I hadn't known Kim Hyun Joong. And I'm so glad I did because it opened me up to a lot of wonderful things. If you get to know him better, you will discover a whole new way of thinking, you will be amused with his retorts and witty remarks, you will laugh at his funny and crazy antics, admire his professionalism and dedication, be amazed with his versatility and talents, and ultimately, you will like him and learn to love him for what he is. You will be transported into a world that's full of excitement, inspiration, and love.

    A Multifaceted Artist

    He's an all around guy blessed with good looks, talents, passion and the determination to succeed. He fell in love with the guitar when he was a kid, and that's when he decided that he would live for MUSIC. He loves music so much that he can't imagine life without it. He's a singer, dancer, actor, musician, product endorser, model all rolled into one! I love the way he dances, he's my favorite dancer in SS501. And he really excels in everything he puts his mind into doing.

    His Love For His Fans

    I don't even know if I could capture in words the love Kim Hyun Joong feels for his fans. He always has a word of encouragement to say to his fans. Young or old, he treasures all. He always tells his younger fans to do well in school, and to his older fans, he always gives support and gives a reminder to do well in their jobs. Kim Hyun Joong is a person who loves his fans. And he knows how to give and take. He even created the Goodbye Yoon Ji Hoo event for his fans to watch the last episode of Boys Over Flowers with him, for FREE! He paid for everything including transportation from the airport for foreign fans. It was something he gave back to the fans for all the love they've given him. It's also his dream to hold a free concert for everyone, especially the students who can't afford to buy concert tickets. Another dream he has, is that 10 years from now, when the fans are 30, 40 years old, he will still be performing for them and maybe even talk with the husbands. How many idols do you know have this much love for his fans? Here are some quotes he had for his fans:

    * Please work hard so you won't get fired. For the jobless noonas, Go for it!!!

    * If it rains, don't forget to bring an umbrella. Don't put on a raincoat, if it's not green (green is SS501's color). If you don't have umbrella, use your mom's.

    * Even though it's raining, snowing, or storming, always love and support SS501!!

    * Don't sit in front of the fan or air conditioner too long, you will catch a cold.

    * It's Thanksgiving Day. Don't eat too much rice cakes, otherwise you might get a tummy-ache.

    * I'm worried about your health in the rainy season, so please take care of yourselves. You might break down at the concert.

    Author is a fan of SS501 and their leader Kim Hyun Joong. It is the author's hope that the world will know about this amazing group and spread SS501 love to the world.

    [Trans] Wishes to Hear 'Well done!' on the (current) basis of 'You've Improved..'

    Kim Hyun Joong (24) whose popularity spread to worldwide, just finished shooting for his first leading drama 'Mischievous Kiss' and was taking a break. We met in the interview. Even though his face still looks like Baek Seung Jo in 'Mischievous Kiss', his 4-D charisma is so clear by glancing at him making stars with the yellow rubber band.

    Kim Hyun Joong's first leading drama "Mischievous Kiss" Special Edition made the premiere through the global video website Youtube.

    This is a fresh experience for me because it is the first time (to put the Korean drama on YouTube). The YouTube special edition was much better received than I expected, luckily. Comments from fans of the countries, like Tunis and Argentina that I barely get in touch with really surprised me. I can't believe the fact that I have fans in those countries. Kim Hyun Joong said with shy smile.

    YouTube special edition has set the new records of clicking and comments replies. Kim Hyun Joong replied these compliments humbly "Like some comments (mentioned), i still don't feel the popularity I gain. Maybe I will get the sense of reality when I am able to see fans' reaction in the promotion activity"

    Kim Hyun Joong took the main role in his last drama "Boys Over Flowers", but "Mischievous Kiss" is the first time he lead the drama completely. Is there any burdens by taking the leading role?

    "I don't feel the pressure, this is my characteristic. Because if you are under a lot of pressure, you may not do it well. I prefer playing the drama with relaxed mood. Comparing to the pressure, an easy mind is better for me, so I acted relaxingly". You can't see any clues of weakness or being immature as a junior actor while he talked about his feeling.

    Under mass expectation, there are two types of reactions to his acting skill "Still immature" and "Improved from the period of BOF". Compared to himself three months ago, Kim Hyun Joong said confidently that he's very satisfied with the Bae Seung Jo role he portrayed.

    "(I wish) my work will be unique and valuable. I don't want to regret. Also, the role Bae Seung Jo is totally different from the person Kim Hyun Joong, so I worked very hard to show (Bae Seung Jo's) characteristics that are completely different from Kim Hyun Joong. To become Bae Seung Jo, I studied this role. If you see the sign of Kim Hyun Joong from Bae Seung Jo, then the role is still Kim Hyun Joong, not Bae Seung Jo" "I heard a lot of comments like 'improved a lot'. I wishes to hear 'Well done!' on the (current) basis of 'You've Improved'". As a Junior actor, Kim Hyun Joong showed his expectations.

    Recently, many idols originally from idol groups challenged the field of musicals. DBSK's U-know, JYJ's Kim Joon Soo, SS501's Kim Hyung Jun and Park Jung Min, presenting their images besides singers from different ways, but Kim Hyun Joong brought out his own point "Never think about anything else besides acting and singing. Not to say that I don't want to, but I am still not confident enough to handle singing and acting at the same time. I only want to concentrate on acting and singing currently".

    Kim Hyun Joong's enthusiasm about acting was seen during the hour-long interview. No matter what, Kim Hyun Joong had a strong will to improve his drawback in the acting skill.

    It's curious about the true look of an ordinary 24-year old youth rather than an entertainer star Kim Hyun Joong. It is well known that Kim Hyun Joong loves soccer among the pop artists. The pictures showing his happy face in the community soccer club are well known from the the 'Soccer Fans' (Is this a magazine? Sorry, I am not quite sure here). Together with private coach and dancers, they rented a sedan and made a trip to Yang Ju(扬州) (Sorry, I can't find the Hangul name of the Chinese trans) for a (soccer) match. Kim Hyun Joong likes to play indoor soccer there.

    "My position is center forward in the field. I watched all the scoor games in the Asian Game", Kim Hyun Joong said his most favorite player was Park Ji-Sung. "He's really the best soccer player of Asia. It is very exciting watching his game. He's very hard-working. The nick name 'oxygen tank' fits him perfectly." You can see his boyish look while chatting about soccer.

    Kim Hyun Joong also talked about his daily life honestly "(I) like to eat chicken and drink Soju with friends in Seoul's suburb like Nam Yang Ju. Play Soccer or Go-Stop game to kill the time while waiting for meal" "Having a day like this, my exhausted heart and body are recharged. Though not able to spend days like this a lot, (I'd) love to go whenever I have time". Kim Hyun Joong said, bursting into a big smile.

    Drama 'Mischeivous Kiss' leading by Kim Hyun Joong has been sold to many Asian countries before its TV broadcasting, which gained a lot of popularity in China, Japan, Taiwan and many other countries. Kim Hyun Joong is going to Taiwan for the 'Mischievous Kiss' promotion activity in the coming December 26th. There are only 2 months left in 2010, compared to the domestic market, actor Kim Hyun Joong will gained a more solid ground overseas where he stays for a long time.

I will do my best so that I will be able to have a promotional showcase in Japan.

    Q3 : You previously talked that you were composing songs by playing a guitar, or piano in your private studio at home. How about your recent music activities?

    A : As I am too much occupied that I cannot have such a private time. In order to prepare for my solo album, I would like to have a dance lesson first. For that purpose, a famous dancer is coming from NY , who choreographed for Usher Raymond IV(R&B singer), Justine Timberlake, and Ne-Yo. I will take a private dance lesson from him.

    Q4: Wow, we can expect a genuine dance performance !

    A : Yes, please look forward to seeing it. Therefore, I would like to challenge to guitar, or composing songs after I upgrade my dance performance to the level I feel satisfied.

    Q5: Recently, Kpop is getting more and more popular. How do you feel about it?

    A: I am very happy that many Korean activists are active in Japan, getting high reputation now. Though the center of the popular artists are now boys group as well as girls groups, I would like to make my best efforts by myself so that I can prove that Korean solo artists are fantastic.

    Q6: Wow, it increases our expection !What kind of music, do you aim?

    A: The music I would like to aim is “ performance music “ . With fusion of music, dance, and a beautiful video art, I would like to show audiovisual performance which stimulates sense of vision and hearing.

    Q7: What kind of film or audiovisual, do you like the best?

    A: First of all, I like SF. Among recent films, I like “Transformer” and “Avatar” .
    I am interested in that kind of vision.

    Q8: Do you think of creating something, reflecting such SF-like audiovisual into your MV?

    A: Yes, that is right ! My MV will be something new and very unique one, being inspired by those creations. I have something in my mind now. When you have my next album in your hand, you will understand, “ This is what Hyun Joong wanted to realize !”

    Q9: From now on, you are going to expand your activities to Japan, China, Taiwan and so on, to the global world. What you would like to achieve in Asia?

    Good Boys Go To Heaven, Kim Hyun Joong Became A Hallyu Star

    The title is a take from the signs in cute little plates in the 8o’s that says Good girls go to heaven Bad girls go everywhere .These messages were of course meant to elicit laughter and comments. Remember the admonitions of mothers, aunts, grandmothers and all the well intentioned nosy neighbors to stay good.

    While we laugh and chuckle, there must be something behind the duality or polarity, of being good and being bad in society. Society and thinkers have looked at the world in two hues, the black and the white for quite some time. The grays will take a little while to flourish in the mind. Life seems to be appreciated in pairs of opposites.

    The pair of being good and being bad infers character traits that society had prejudged according to its standards. Those who followed society’s rules and standards were considered good . The good then gets the largesse and the accolade of society. They get good grades, awards, plaques of recognition; maybe even get elected to political office. Oh, society remembers them post mortem, too as heroes. How about those who looked and took the other way and therefore “bad” in the eyes of society? Well, may be they get the red marks, they get to have some pretty price tags on their heads and numbers on their chest , a jail term or two. Sometimes, they make it too, only later. But just the same they make it to the headlines and society bids them good riddance posthumously.

    What is behind the label ? Actually, if you look at being “bad” it can also mean being nonconformist. It means they make their own rules and standards whether it was a reaction to earlier failures, defense mechanism, or a survival mode. Sometimes, they are said to be the impatient ones-looking for the shortcuts and cutting corners. Maybe they woke up earlier and already have seen something while the majority was still sleeping. Or they are the mavericks of society –those capable of independent thoughts and actions, those with very strong internal locus of control. These are the ones that are not affected by what others say. Instead of listening to others they listen to themselves. Deviants are also the terms used to describe them, though the term indicates they have been measured against a kind of scale.

    Measured or not, the “bad” ones are rebelling against the path set for them to follow. Some of them have seen the way a long time ago through their own means .Now whether seeing the light at the end of the tunnel early on meant success is another thing. Society had set the path to success: go to school enter a good if not well known university, get a job, get married and raise a family. However, to the nonconformist, the order have not only been reversed they created their own order. Inspired insights gave them their maps. But the maps did not guarantee paved and smooth roads.

    How did the young Kim Hyun Joong in a highly prescriptive Korean society manage to find his way in his early struggles? Was it passion for music, ambition to claim the stage, burning desire to put away society’s regulations to pursue a dream, or all of the above? If your answer is all of the above, you’ve got it right ! Through his own admissions , he has opened his book of life to public scrutiny .It was not a story for the faint hearted .Getting lost in the park at a very young age attracted to the performance of bands , forsaking good grades and school to run away to earn a living , subsisting on little food(one time had to steal ,yes that was the word because he did not pay for it ) and barely a roof over the head , with pride never having to ask for an allowance , learning to play the guitar ,piano with his raw talent, getting into trouble with the police for friends, learning to drink booze and smoke ,at an early age ,etc, etc. What else did he not do? Just imagine other things he did to get those scars on his handsome face. Or where could he have gotten those battle scars on other parts of his body, too?

    Was he just in luck or his destiny has been laid out when somebody tried to scout him for a performing group for China? The company had an early complication that he landed in DSP instead. Whether luck , destiny, hard work or its combinations Kim Hyun Joong is now here , brighter than any star in the firmament –dared to defy society now can only look back and show what he had accomplished . Looking at his resume ,what does one say ? It is quite exemplary, as he has a thick resume and more is coming to fill it in. They make you ask the inevitable question: could he have accomplished all these if he was society’s good boy?

    But how many people reach their goals using alternative routes, the uncertain avenues? How many arrive there without wasting any time, learning what has to be learned along the way and making it? That is why people who make it against the odds become legends .They become sensations. They become the story that needed to be told. And retold. Are they presenting a different mold of success if it can be called that way? Is being “bad” now the in thing to do to succeed?

    There are many ways to succeed; the unorthodox one may have to be patented, as they are unique. A future or another Kim Hyun Joong cannot repeat the same formula . It must be reinvented to suit his circumstances. But the Kim Hyun Joong for now understood that there were also repercussions of defying conventions. He admitted that the label being a dropout followed him everywhere. Did he not cynically ask though realistically that society wants diploma? So he compromised and returned to school, and eventually got his diploma. Now, educational institutions have already recognized students come from different situations and have adjusted accordingly.

    So what is the moral of the story if ever there is one? Those “bad” boys really go everywhere? Is this the path of the young, the brave and the restless? Kim Hyun Joong pursued that path and made it to Korean entertainment. But he has also broken through the glass wall as he is now a hallyu star of global entertainment. One time, in an interview, he did some reflecting on what he has done so far. He mused that his contemporaries are only now finding their jobs while he has been working all these time. Hyun Joong was being modest. He loved what he is doing, besides earning hefty sums to enjoy creature comfort and provide for the important people in his life. He has become a philanthropist as well, the “bad “boy gives back to society and pays his dues.

    Hyun Joong as the genius in Playful Kiss complained of difficulties memorizing the formulas, we can only say in jest, these were taught in school; he must have been absent then, strumming his guitar somewhere.

    Kim Hyun Joong took on an interview with Korea Star Daily last week... "Why do people like me? Yeah thats right, why do they like a person like me?"

    Can you actually believe Kim Hyun Joong doesn't know why people like him? In dramas, Kim Hyun Joong always appear as the soft guy, but in reality, he's actually quite stiffened in personality. Exactly because of that, Kim Hyun Joong has had many bitter-sour love experiences,"I'm rather stiffened, and though I treat my girlfriend nice, I don't tend to express myself during relationships, that's why I often get dumped in the end".
    Who could have expected Kim Hyun Joong to be dumped? He continued to add that he "has many experiences of being rejected by girls after confessing. "I always get dumped by my girlfriend after dating. Probably she finds no interest in dating me. As compared to opposite genders, I like to meet my friends more, so I guess I tend to neglect my girlfriend more. I can't choose between friends and lover, but I do seem to enjoy being with my friends more, and times spent together is long too. But, I still treat my girlfriend well when I'm with her".

    Kim Hyun Joong is a man of few words, but is also honest and straight. As soon as he opens his mouth, he'll speak whatever's at the bottom of his heart - this, is Kim Hyun Joong's charm. He also answered frankly when asked about love, "If I'm in a relationship, I don't intend to be open about this, because this girl might be veiled with the title like 'oh she's who and who's girl'; this is very disrespectful towards the girl, I feel. This might be a torture for the girl, so I won't want to be public about it".

    He expressed that he's dated showbiz people, and also non-showbiz people. He divulged his thoughts for destiny, "I believe in love at first sight, and also had such experiences. She just greeted me once only, and then I already fell deep in. I like frank people, I don't know how to deal with too womanly or meticulous people, so I enjoy dating straight and frank people. I also feel kinda awkward towards junior girls who call me oppa. The girls I dated before is quite different from my ideal type, so far, I had only dated my ideal kind of woman - once".

    Kim Hyun Joong has this real charm that simply goes beyond words. He possesses fame that an idol should have, and also the kind of sophisticated air about him just like an on-looker.

    On-looker here means a person who does by his own book of rules, and one who won't be shaken nor moved easily, he's one youth who has real depth within him. After drama [Playful Kiss] ended, he flew straight to Guangzhou to perform for Asian Games. He looked kind of lethargic probably because of his tight schedules, but still, he did not lose that sophistication nor air, "I didn't sleep too short either, about 4 hours? During drama shooting, I didn't even manage to sleep for 4 hours across 3 days... 4 hours now is totally considered nothing, my physique has been good by nature; I'm a '86-er, wasn't the first Asian Game held in Korea. Yeah I was born at that time, now that I stood on the stage of this opening ceremony, I feel so amazing, and what is more I'm representing Korea, so I'm really so honored. Seeing so many audiences, I plan secretly - for all of these people to come watch my concert".

    Responses from the audiences turned out particularly well, Kim Hyun Joong attracted the attention of numerous China audiences as he smiled brightly to his singing, "what amazed me was that my fans increased, next day when I left China, so many fans came to send me off at the airport. It's so amazing how there was such a huge change in just a day". Every one is so bothered by Kim Hyun Joong - from his airport fashion to every movement of his cause topics of discussions. "Airport apparels? How ever way they let me wear I just wear that way. I'm an aloof guy? I'm not aloof, it's quite different from that kind of aloof ah. In reality I'm a person who puts on casual exercising uniform and wears slippers to meet up and eat fried chickens and drink white wine with friends in the small towns. I'm definitely not an aloof city lad".

    The CNN interview is also a special experience for him. CNN has been holding an interest for Kim Hyun Joong who is stirring about a Hallyu fever on Youtube. CNN even selected Kim Hyun Joong to be the next generation representative singer ***** actor for leading Hanryu. "I'm still not a Hanryu star, this word is quite forceful to me, but I'm preparing to be one. (Bae) Yong-Joon hyung indeed gave me much help, everybody thought we talked about something really big but in fact just daily life talks. Like yesterday, we even talked till 1AM". A meeting between Kim Hyun Joong and Bae Yong Joon is enough to agitate people, however their meetings have never been disclosed before. "How strange, hyung and I don't actually meet at some particular place or what, just some normal and plain coffee houses, yet I have never seen photos of our meetings on the internet at all".

    So could it be that people don't believe in the possible appearance of two handsome males? "Really? Well we're just about the same... There're really many matters to thank hyung for. Hyung is a hanryu star, so he also sort of paved this road for me. Hyung is envious me, because at his time, noone gave him help nor advice, but I have hyung to teach me". Kim Hyunjoong and Bae Yong Jun's relationship is touching as Kim Hyun Joong falls long of words to describe their friendship. Lastly Kim Hyun Joong says, "I took on [Playful Kiss] because I felt it's a work that could totally change my life. Yeah the ratings were kind of regretful to know of, but it's just a digit. The beginning now is the real beginning".


    Kim Hyun Joong is an actor whose stark personality shines as he differentiates clearly between love and hate, and also one who asks alot of himself. Even his value principle is like that of his personality, unsure if it's because of this reason, the moment people mention him, every one thinks of him as demarcative.

    "I'm definitely not an aloof city lad who knows nothing about emotions", as Kim Hyun Joong expresses his dissatisfaction for an adjective "aloof city lad" amongst all adjectives being used to describe him. Previously when he was in Guangzhou for the 2010 Asian Games opening ceremony, his [airport fashion] was also described by people as "aloof city lad". To this, Kim Hyunjoong expressed utter detachment from his real personality, "Yeah don't tell me my style is an aloof and city-beat? Don't think so, I'm not aloof at all. I'm actually one who will go to drink spicy chicken soup and drink soju with my friends at roadside stalls in casual slippers and sports uniform, I'm definitely not one who knows nothing about emotions".

    With that, it seems like we can't use the adjective "cold and icy" to describe Kim Hyun Joong, anymore. Even he does not feel such about himself, "I'm totally not terse, regarding fashion I'm totally dumb-bell. About things like smart phones, I'm also not interested, and is also not one who's very sensitive to fashion trends or anything". If that's the case like what he's said, then what is it he concentrates most effort on, besides work? "I'm not very same as other guys, I don't really like gaming nor billiards. I love playing soccer the most, and also to rent a housing car to go camping at the mountainous areas with friends, and definitely play soccer once every week".

    After starring in one after another dramas, words like "2nd Hanryu star" also began to surface on him. However, Kim Hyun Joong actually possess a very matured side to him which does not suit in with his age at all. He may be a youthful idol but he already has a detailed plan for his entire life, "I've always been living with plans, and also enjoys planning for each and every thing. If I don't do according to such a way I'll feel uncomfortable, and will also in turn become more careful. I previously said I'll retire once I earn 2.2 billion, but to think back of it now, it's so childish. I used to think 0.1 billion can be so easily earned, but now I gradually learn that making money is so not easy".

    When our journalist asked him if he still wants to get married early, he expressed his original plan to marry at 30 years, and then live on happily, but now there's a change of plans, "I've always thought 30 years old is so matured, but it's not like that at all. I presume I'll not be able to marry at 30, and in the end my plan to have kids will also change. Currently I don't have thoughts to get married, I'm enjoying alot in my career, working". Things that Kim Hyun Joong wants to do is still many many, though ratings for his drama is low, [Playful Kiss] will still seemingly continue to open the second door to his life.

    "To me, every day is a new turning point. I like to plan my timetable for every single day, even meal times. Even promises I made at the slip of a mouth - I really keep to them. I hope to live my life in a scheduled and planned manner, because I have aplenty of matters to complete".

    "Ghost? I think I still see about 2 in a year". Until now, Kim Hyun Joong will still say some sentences that gives rise to bursts of laughters. Though he isn't one who can totally open his heart in front of outsiders, so long content comes from him, it never fails to be frank and sincere and, real.

    In showbiz, one could hear the many ghost stories of celebrities, but no one, ever told a ghost story as calmly as Kim Hyunjoong did. You know, even "meeting ghosts" is like a daily routine for him, he often portrudes this eerie and uncontrollable air about him. "Kyujong and I saw ghosts before, and we both asked each other, 'did you see it just now?', 'yeah I saw'". Goosebumps rose on the back skin of our journalist, but on Kim Hyunjoong's face, it wasexpressionless as though nothing was the case. Interview also came to an end then, but still, we couldn't quite grasp what kind of person Kim Hyun Joong is.

    Recently there are so many new words to describe Kim Hyun Joong, like what "Bae Yong Joon's successor", "2nd generation of Hallyu star", "representative icon of youth and fashion" etc etc, but him who lies within the core of discussion is ever so calm-minded, as if it does not concern him at all. Since he does everything according to plans, he's a more rational person than sentimental. He reveals that he often tries hard to change from a sensational person to a rational one, because this is a pavement where everybody has to walk past in order to turn mature.

    Until now, Kim Hyun Joong has been living his life according to his plans, exactly because of that, he will take in people's suggestions and feedbacks while ignoring the harsh and bad talks abut him, not because he's doing it on purpose but rather it comes as a form of him - born by nature. "I've never bothered myself with those harsh talks, I'm very extremely satisfied with my fans who support me and my working environment. Why should I please the people who don't like me? Even if these kind of people humiliate my parents is fine as well, because I have absolutely no need to take these people who don't understand me into heart. Besides, they're not speaking truth". With such a reason, he does not mind at all how people rate him based on acting in [Playful Kiss] and its low ratings.

    "My hallyu generation will be a brand new generation", as he says. Kim Hyun Joong with such confidence will surely turn to a glorious sight. This is no big talk as this has already formed into a concrete map presented right in front of us.
