[Article] Kim Hyun Joong’s Interview with

How do you feel when you arrived here in Vietnam?
-(Smile) Actually, I was landed here very late last night so I couldn’t see your city. But this morning when I woke up, I have observed the city from the hotel’s balcony and It was so cool. I arrived lately and the weather quite hot, I have never experienced this kind of weather before.

Do you know that in Vietnam, you’re very famous and the members in your fanclub is even “bigger” than other Vietnamese artists’ ?
-As you have known, the K-pop industry is very popular in Vietnam and it has made a deep impression on teenagers here. I’m very happy because of the love that Vietnamese fans gave me. Last night, although it was very late but they still waited for me at the airport, and it was really hard for me to get out of the crowd. That’s the motivation which makes me work harder.

‎However, when you see the Vietnamese fans, you was quite frosty and seems like you didn’t smile much, that makes the fans feel not really close?
-(Smile) Oh, it was not like that. When I arrived here, I didn’t expect that there was so many fans brought the banners and posters to welcome my first time in Vietnam. I’m very worried about the security here. I worried that something bad will happens to them and I always tell the manager to protect them. It makes me nervous so you have the feeling that I’m not friendly

Many Korean stars come to Vietnam felt very impressive on their fans ‘s cheerfulness, and even some of them felt uncomfortable because of “the crazy fans”. What about you, do you feel uncomfortable because of “the crazy fans” ?
-I don’t feel like that about the cheerfulness or craziness from my fans. The cheerfulness of the fans makes me feel confident so that I could be stronger. I will have to remind myself to work harder in every movies and also in my music to make sure that you’ll always love me.

These days, you have “exploded” with the new concept, and your blonde hair in “Boys over flowers drama” was disparaged about your gender. Was that the reason why you changed your image?
-(Laugh) What an interesting question! However, I’m an actor so changing the concept that make the audience “feel” my character is needed.
These days, I have changed to a strong, menly concept because I always want to bring something new to the audience. It’s the purpose that almost artists want to do.

Kim Hyun Joong sometimes look strong, manly and sometimes look cute…So how is the real “people” inside you?
-I’m very manly, just think about me like that.

Recently, your song “Please” was banned because it caused a bad effect on children. How do you feel?
-This song is for adult, it was banned because the culture in each country is different. But I think you can listen to it.

With the love of Vietnamese fans, what will you do to say “thanks” to them?
I’m very happy and touched because of the fans. Waiting for hours at the airport although it was late. I’ll have a meeting with you guys tomorrow. If I would have a chance, I hope to hold a concert in Vietnam in the future ^^.

Kim Hyun Joong debuts with the album “Break down” as he displays a different persona compared to his SS501 days. Hyun Joong has taken the most generic route out of all the SS501 member’s solo activities – typical synthesizer instrumentals, heavy beats and catchy choruses as well as bubblegum pop.

Kim Hyun Joon’s completed his tour both in the U.S. and South Korea and later on, hit back the studio and recorded this mini-album with album producer Steven Lee.

Together with Japanese group, V6 and KAT-TUN’s producer Steven Lee, Kim Hyun Joong involved himself in the album-making just to reveal more of talent as a solo artist. “Break Down” boasts a total of six songs, with one instrumental version of the title track.

The title track “BREAK DOWN” is a powerful synthesized song with an urban style which features a stylish rapping of South Korea’s Double K; and Ken Lewis (Eminem, Kanye West, Usher and John Legend) as the single’s producer. The music video for “Break Down” was simultaneously released with the single’s digital release.

Marking his comeback to the music scene, the album also boasts the previously released single “PLEASE” in which Kim Hyun Joong portrayed a different and mature image in his music video. Other album highlights include “Intro (Let Me Go)”where Kim Hyun Joong opens with a magnificent pipe organ melody. Also in the album is the song “Kiss Kiss”another pop/ dance song but accompanied with an acoustic guitar and dance-y beat “Yes I Will.”

Aside from the Philippines, “BREAK DOWN” will also be released in South Korea, Mainland China, Taiwan, Hongkong, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.

KIM HYUN JOONG’s solo mini-album “BREAK DOWN” is now available at all record bars nationwide exclusively distributed by PolyEast Records in cooperation with KeyEast Entertainment and CJ E&M Korea.

[Article + Translation] Kim Hyun Joong's Drinking Wine and Judging People.

During 1920, every 2 bottles of red wine sold in Australia one was produced by Penfolds Winery. Grange red wine from Penfold Winery is a red wine which undergo long term maturation, at least 10 years of maturation period is needed, according to its vintage quality, there are red wine which could be kept for 50 years. 1998 Penfold Grange is ranked amongst the very finest released. This wine releases exceptionally sweet aroma of blackberry liqueur, accompanied by malty and nutty oak scent, full of intensity and strong fruit flavour, it is an gorgeous wine.

Singer Kim HyunJoong met Sommerlier Lee JoonHyuk shortly after drama ‘Playful Kiss’ completed filming. Because of the low viewership rating, had worried that he might be under stressed, but 26 years old Kim HyunJoong was more matured than he had imagined.

When I consoled him that maybe it was due to bad luck, Kim Hyun Joong calmly smiled and said: ‘Only a loser will put the blame on bad luck’. HyunJoong was worried that the low viewership rating would affect the atmosphere on site, so he purposely created a lively atmosphere infront of the shooting team, he is a person with great thoughts, he had firmly believed that by experiencing these incidents which might happened sooner or later, he would be able to overcome any kind of difficulties in future easily.

Although it was a pity for the viewership ratings, however ‘Playful Kiss’ was exported to 13 countries and regions around the world, its internet edition had also won a good result of more than 10 million click rate.

Kim Hyun Joong is totally different from his beauty youth look, he is a charming man who loves soccer. Not only showing that he enjoyed soccer, but has also sponsored in the ladies soccer.

He smiled and said: "Was very proud that I am a striker who was able to goal in every match, for a match of 90 mins, running around for 80 mins, running until my chest almost exploded, I could feel that I was working hard to live, the feeling was very great. I even joined in a celebrity soccer team, but since everybody has very high social value, their defence were not strong enough, it was a pity."(laughter)

Kim Hyun Joong who gave people the feeling that he seem to have not gone through any hardship, also had his trival period. During his high school period, he was madly in love with music, eating instant noodles and playing guitar everyday, being cheated off his money earned after debut during his group activity, didn’t dare to let his parents know, but quietly deal with the aftermath arrangements, because of that he had also learned to differentiate a good and bad person. Kim HyunJoong has exposed many times that his ideal is Lee Hyori, feline styled alike girl, but currently do not have a girl friend

“When meeting a girl, will worry how to treat her, also know that can’t treat her like treating a male friend, but don’t now the way. Maybe it is because I was always together with male friends." (laugter). It is known that TOP and Kim JaeJoong are very closed to Kim HyunJoong, especially Kim JaeJoong was his best friend since trainee period, they are close pal for 6 years already, he has also known TOP for 4 years, is a friend who can get along very well.

Kim HyunJoong said recently he is learning to drink red wine from his boss and also senior, Bae YongJoon, and is deeply attracted by the charm of red wine.

He originally is a person who liked to drink white wine, because recently always had chances to drink red wine, so recently will always think of drinking red wine, will buy red wine when working oversea. Recently his own cellar was empty, so he has started to buy red wine again. Originally he thought that red wine was luxury item, but after drinking quite often he had unconsciously started to understand the reason of others love for it, and started to not feel that it was a luxury item. There was an interesting incident, when HyunJoong-kun was in Japan, he had chance to have dinner together with the producer, he was asked to choose a red wine that he favour, so he had chosen the only red wine that he known – 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild (Note: According to Korean fan, this wine price is above 3million won, around USD2742), they drank 3 bottles on that day, later when he get to know the price of the wine, he felt very guilty. Whether the wine was a good wine, you could know from its hefty price.

[News] Songs by TVXQ, Kim Hyun Joong, Homme, and DJ DOC get banned as ‘harmful media.

Here we go again. On August 5th, the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family came out with a list of four more songs that were banned on grounds of being ‘harmful media to the youth.’

The music video for TVXQ’s “Before U Go“, Kim Hyun Joong’s “Please“, Homme’s “Still Eating Well“, and DJ DOC’s “Tonight” were added to the list of the new bans. As with previous bans, the reasoning lies in the mentioning of alcohol and other ‘hazardous content’, as well as the use of violence.

Kim Hyun Joong’s “Please” was banned for two lines that said, “Because I’m drunk” and “Between the spread of the cigarette smoke.”

The music video for “Before U Go” was banned for fear of promoting violence and gambling. Representatives of SM Entertainment retorted, “We have submitted material to refute their decision.”

As previously revealed, albums containing banned songs are not available for sale to minors under the age of 19 and cannot be played on raido or TV before 10 PM.
