[Article + Vids] Kim Hyun Joong breaks down in tears while reading his letter, “I’ve only been able to watch fans fight”

Kim Hyun Joong has returned as a solo artist and gave a word of thanks to his fans with tears pouring from his eyes.

On June 7th, after his mini-album “Break Down” release showcase was over, he read a letter that he wrote from his heart to his fans.

He pulled out a letter and revealed his heartfelt feelings, “I’ve always been able to show my outer-self on stage, but I’ve never been able to show my heart to them. But I’ve finally gained enough courage to write this letter to share my feelings with my fans”.

Kim Hyun Joong read, “It’s already been 6 years since I’ve met every one. I thank you for believing in me and cheering for me all this time and never changing,” and he confessed, “I started looking back while I was working on the album. I realized how important the meaning of ‘together’ is”.

He continued, “I started feeling pressure and fear as I was trying to do this alone. It was hard to defeat this… I looked back over the past year, fans fighting and misunderstandings, only being able to watch over the situation made me think to myself, ‘I guess I have limits, too,” as his eyes started tearing.

He ended by saying, “I worked hard on the album by imagining how happy the fans would be looking at it. I hope that you will all be smiling and be even happier in the future.”

He added, “This album is not mine, but belongs to everyone. I’m very thankful to everyone that showed up here, and I want to tell everyone with my heart that I love you”.

Earlier on this day, Kim Hyun Joong performed his first solo title song “Break Down” at a showcase in front of 4,000 people.

[Vid + Translation] Kim Hyun Joong Break Down Showcase ; Reading Letter to his Fans

Okay I'm going to start reading it
I have known everyone for 6 years already
During this extremely long period of time
As always, believing and supporting Kim Hyun Joong, a person like this
Really very thankful
Actually, during the time when preparing this album
Although the time was not considered long
But it has allowed me to look back at the path that I have taken
I realized being together is so important
In addition, protecting me every moment
Now I am to handle all this by myself
In my heart, it is hard to avoid feeling worried and fearful
To overcome all this is so difficult
Over the past 1 year, seeing so many fans
Quarrelling among yourselves, suspecting one another
But I could only... quietly look upon all this
This has made me feel that I am so small, useless
But once I think about fans' excited faces after listening to my album
I start to feel energized once again, encouraged once more
From today onwards, hope to see everyone always smiling, being more blessed
This is not my album, but everyone's album
Sincerely thank everyone of you here
I wish to say "I love all of you"
Thank you, I love all of you
2011.05.10 or 2011.06.07
Kim Hyun Joong
