[Article] Kim Hyun Joong 김현중 Gave Up His Original Title Song Because of Psy

Returning to K-Pop with Round 3, Kim Hyun Joong revealed that his title track was not supposed to be Your Story.

During an interview with fashion magazine, High Cut, Kim Hyun Joong said he had to give up his original title song because of Psy. The reason was because the title song he wanted was also named Gentleman.

“It was a song that we’ve been working on since last year, so I was a bit greedy with the title,” explained Kim Hyun Joong. “But then Psy sunbaenim came out with Gentleman first, so we tried changing the title toSuperman and others, but it didn’t stick.”

He added that Gentleman ended up just being one of the songs on his new album.

“That’s why Your Story was born and it’s a good song, so everything worked out in the end.”

The full interview and pictorial will be included in issue 107, to be released on August 1.

[Tidbits / Translation] Kim Hyun Joong 김현중 on Kim Bum Soo's Gayo Plaza Radio Show

Kim Beom-soo was surprised that Kim Hyun Joong's overseas fans could understand Korean. KHJ said he was surprised sometimes too, as fans were very good in Korean especially when he read fans' letters, almost like a local Korean. However, Koreans have this 'habit' that they tend to spurt some 'foul' words whenever they are happy or angry. An example of the fan's letter written by overseas fans: 'I like oppa, I am 18 years old this year. I really f***ing like you'. He was thankful that overseas fans are well interested in Korea, but he wish that Koreans (or those who understand Korean) can teach overseas fans appropriately.

KHJ said he thought that his title song, Your Story, music video would probably be rated as 19+, but it turned out that the evaluation given was rated to be suitable for all ages. And he was relieved by that results as many people would be surprised by the alluring & classy MV. He said the editing part was difficult.

Fans left a message saying that the music video was rated 19+ already and he was taken aback by the news, but he said it was alright.

KHJ talked about scuba diving and he said that he was drop-dead afraid to enter the sea last time because of the movie 'Jaws' he watched when he was young. So to overcome the fear, he picked up scuba diving and realized the beauty of the sea. He wished that while he's carrying out his promotion activities as an entertainer, he could also take part in going under the sea (scuba diving) too.

Talking about the Master Diving competition in Barefoot Friends, Kim Beom-soo asked whether KHJ was nervous. He answered that as he practiced a lot, he wasn't so nervous anymore & he found the charming point in diving too. He put in a lot of effort to make the impossible possible.

Next he said that since he's making his comeback, fans had prepared a lot of food support for him, but he couldn't eat as much as that & he felt a bit wasteful to throw away the food leftovers as they are after all, bought with money. As he can afford to buy himself food to eat & he know fans wanted to support him a lot, so he won't wish for anything else much but just wanted the fans to download his songs just for 600won each. It would be great if fans could download his songs, come to his concert, buy 1 or 2 copies of his physical albums.

Before UNBREAKABLE was played, KHJ explained that UNBREAKABLE is a track with the essence derived from the traditional Korean song (the chorus part was derived from the song), also to promote Korea through the song as a Hallyu star.

Selecting 'Best 5 Common Addictive Songs that 20 years old above preferred',

5) Kim Beom-soo's Come Back To Me
He said there was once after he had broken up, he fell in love with this song a lot and it was a song that brings back a lot of memories

4) 1TYM's One Love

3) JYP's Elevator Umm Umm Umm(음음음)
He thinks that among the singers in Korea, Park Jin-young has the sexiest voice among all, that he was able to bring songs so alive.

2) Jay Park's Joah
He thinks that the song was sexy because of the confidence in Jay Park's voice. And he thought that Jay Park is the JYP in this generation. It would be great to listen to the song in this hot weather or while driving as it can lift up your mood.

1) Son Dambi's Crazy
A song that really drives people crazy. KHJ said that it's a song that really blows men out of their minds. A fan left a message in the message board saying that 'Kim HyunJoong is also very sexy' and KHJ said he wasn't as sexy as Son Dambi.

After that, KHJ said that he doesn't want to be in any relationship now & definitely not going to reveal his relationship to public if he does have a girlfriend. He explained that if he wasn't an entertainer, he could be able to date someone freely. For a public figure, if the girlfriend broke up with him and meet someone else, she might carry the title of 'ex-girlfriend of xxx' and it would be difficult for her to get marry too. That's why he don't want to reveal his relationship to the public, although he will definitely announce it if he's getting married. He said that his ideal type would be someone who could do things that they share in common together freely.

When asked KHJ if he reached Kim Beom-soo's age(34) & yet to be married, he said he would feel insecured. Sometimes when he look at his friends who are already married and have child, he feels that he needs to settle down, and he felt a tad bit jealous unknowingly
