[Vid + Translation] Kim Hyun Joong Sakigake! Ongakuban Duke Eight

Hello to the viewers at Sakigake Ongakuban Duke~Eight~I’m Kim Hyun Joong.

Debuted in Korea as the leader of idol group SS501

In 2007, major debut in Japan

Later as an actor, acting in popular drama

Attracted lots of female fans

Then as a solo artiste, he released his first mini album Break Down in June!

This album dominated the music charts No.1 in 5 Asia countries.

Furthermore he came to Japan in July and went ahead holding a live showcase at Zepp Tokyo thrilling 1,500 fans!

Hyun Joong :Similar to the fans in Korea, fans in Japan cheered passionately too so I felt the real pleasure of the performance.
Even though I spoke in Korean, most of them were able understand and give reactions.
In order to have a natural communication, I will also work even harder to study Japanese.

Difference between “Actor” and “Singer”

As an actor, you spend a long time on it to finish
While as a singer, the preparation period is long term and will have to capture the hearts of people by having activities in a short period.

A place that you wanted to visit in Japan

I heard that if you head south of Japan to the islands, there is an island that have the atmosphere like Hawaii.
I definitely want to visit it at least once.

Message from Kim Hyun Joong

To All Fans in Japan,
It’s been a while since I came back as singer Kim Hyun Joong.
Thanks to those who gave an enthusiastic welcome and those who went to the airport to welcome me.

(2nd Mini album scheduled to be on sale this fall!)

I will also work hard preparing on my next album so please look forward and support it.

(Nationwide Tour Decided! Start from 9th November (Wed) Grand Cube Osaka)

Please also give lots of love to “Break Down”.
Thank you.

[News] Kim Hyun Joong in Daily News Thai Newspaper; The True Self Unveiled!

‘Kim Hyun Joong’ True Self Unveiled – Cute, Fun, Lively and Sexy

Kim Hyun Joong was back again to Thailand to greet his Thai fans. This time round, he came back as a solo artist, without his SS501 band mates, to promote his album “Break Down”. Kim Hyun Joong also gave a special treat to 500 fans with a Hi 5 event. We could not miss out the opportunity to have an exclusive talk with the star. Let’s experience Kim Hyun Joong’s ultimate charm and loveliness.

How are you feeling so far with the promotion of your first solo album “Break Down” in Thailand? What have you prepared for the fans this time?

My last visit to Thailand is a concert with SS501, which is not long time ago. But this time, I saw many fans come to the airport to welcome me. It made me feel very warm and I’m very happy to be back here and meet my fans. I know everyone has been waiting for me. Although I only came back with a Hi 5 event this time, I’m going to have an Asia tour early next year and Thailand is one of the countries on my itinerary. Please wait for me.

Can you talk about the concept of “Break Down”? How much did you get involved in this album?

Actually, I took part in every aspect of the album from producing down to cover and logo design. I also selected all the songs. In fact, I am very dedicated to this solo album and I am very happy that it was warmly welcomed by the fans so I have to thank everyone for that. About the concept, well I looked kinda boyish in the past but in this album I became more mature and the songs are more powerful as I would like everyone to see the other side of me”

What about your acting career? Any news?

I don’t have a plan yet but as I said, I would have concerts next year so I would like to focus on this one first. After my Asia Tour ends, which is around next March or April, you will see me in a different role as an actor once again

You have worked in music and drama. Is there anything else you would like to try?

Nope. I’m having so much fun with these two.

If you were not a singer or an actor, what would you do?

I love music so I think I would probably do something that is related to music.

One minute you are being cute, the next minute you can be very lively or even sexy. What is the real Hyun Joong like?

I think what you have seen about me; being a cute boy in fun moments or the sexy side of me, it is real me because I’m not pretending. I’m expressing myself and showing myself to everyone what I am like at that particular moment.

Can you share with us the impression between yourself and your fans?

Without the love from each and every fan, I would not be standing here. Therefore, I wish all the fans would continue giving me this love. It is a good inspiration and encouragement for me to try to be better in the next album.

You are here in Thailand. What is it about Thailand that you find charming?

I have been here for several times already. I think the charm of Thailand is in its warm weather. In Korea, we have 4 seasons so whenever I come here, it’s always hot [translator: lol] that is very refreshing for me.

If you have a chance to visit Thailand on a personal trip, where would you like to go most?

I have been to many places in Thailand already. One of the places that I went to is a temple where there are a lot of monkeys living in. I want to go there again and see what they are like. Temples here are pretty beautiful and I also saw one resort by the waterfall so I would like to try staying there.

What would you like to say to your Thai fans?

I have not come here for a while but all the fans have not forgotten me. They are always attentive to me. I feel very warm and very proud of every one [the fans]. I have to apologize that I didn’t prepare any songs to sing for you but I understand that everyone is waiting for me. Do not think this is unfortunate that I only stay here for a short while because I will come back again with a concert next year. I want everyone to come to see and look forward to my works.

--And this is the reason why I adore this man so much! Not pretending to anyone or infront of camera just to be love by anybody--- REAL KIM HYUN JOONG that I knew! ^_^

[Fan Account] A Surreal Moment with Kim Hyun Joong

oommooo!! Ms.D! so envy you!!  
woohhooo!! another LUCKY moment HENECIANS Ph!!

OMG!!! It's my first time to write a fan account ever & I have to steel my giddiness enough to write a coherent one, at that!!

Ok here goes:

First of all, I'd like to thank my good friends Lyn Esguerra & most especially Grace Go Aldeguer for the opportunity to represent HENECIANS Philippines in presenting our group's collective gifts to Kim Hyun Joong at the Face Shop, MOA on the morning of August 26, 2011.Then I'd like to thank my Kbench family & fellow Henecians for the moral support & Mela for ironing my hair to make me "20 minutes younger"!!!lol!!

Inside the TFS store, Marge gave us instructions before KHJ & his entourage came in & I learned that only TFS & some Korean photographers were allowed to take pix of the photo opportunity, so my request for my friend Rox to cover it was nixed. I was supposed to go after the 5 winners of the photo op contest, so I was busy juggling the Guimaras mangoes-package, the box of Henecian
letters & the native backpack containing our Barong gift inside!!!

When KHJ came..all the shouting & fan-shrieks only made me more nervous & the SIGHT of my baby, in white~fitted to his SKIN~polo shirt..almost made me forget the spiel I've been memorizing all through the night before & give in to the fangirl in me!!! But I had to psyche myself to complete my task so as not to fail all the HENECIANS!!

So while waiting for my turn, coordi-noona & stylist-noona stood beside me so I talked with coordi telling her that I'm fr Henecia Ph & that we have prepared gifts for KHJ's KE bosses,coordis, managers & whom will we give them to & asked if I should give them to Mr Jeung? she was friendly & nodded!!

When it was my turn to approach Hyun Joong, Mr Jeung, KHJ's handsome Bodyguard~~saw that I was juggling the presents in my hands & offered to help but I motioned that I had to give them to KHJ first....
OMG!! When my baby looked at me, it was all I can do not to scream...HE LOOKED SO MUCH MORE HANDSOME UPCLOSE..his pictures can never do justice to his awesomely GOOD LOOKS!!!I was surprised to hear my voice saying "Hi Hyun Joong, I'm from Henecia Philippines & these are our gifts for you!! inside the bag is our national costume Barong" I was supposed to say "please wear it, etc"...but when he looked straight into my eyes~~I was literally sucked in!! Mr Jeung took the presents & the photographers were all saying "picture" my baby leaned(I can't remember if he put his arms around me)towards me...I knew this was the only chance for me, so when his face was a mere 2 inches from mine...I said "WE LOVE YOU!!!"

All the other winners had to exit after the photo op, but I stayed behind to talk to Mr Jeung about our other I explained & asked him what time & where we can give him the gifts...he answered only yes or no & 1400 at the hotel!!
My conversation w/ Mr Jeung deserves another fan account of its own, cuz he really is so accommodating & very handsome & manly in his own right!!!

It was then time for him to check the store & pose for some pix w/ the TFS products...& i was still inside the shop!! So I just savored the moments watching him do his job...& Kathy is absolutely right!!It's like I'm watching him on YouTube but this time, he was right in front of me!!!

Ms Keti from TFS, came & greeted me & I'd like to thank the TFS staff at MOA, especially Rachelle for keeping me company & helping me w/ the gifts!!!

When it was time for KHJ to say a few words to the crowd & I was inside the store looking out~~that's when I realized how SURREAL my MOMENT was with my baby...& that's when the tears of happiness poured relentlessly!!!

[Vid] "The Person" Kim Hyun Joong Interview part2 (English Subbed)

Take note:
At 00:25-00:29, we've been informed by a Taiwanese friend that the literal translation of the words differ a little from the context of the saying, which actually means:
"Apart from his management company keeping pace with market trends and expanding the Hallyu territory."
