Kim Hyun Joong [article]… GREATER LOVE

140628_hj_(10) (1)

By: LazerKim               Any update about Kim Hyun Joong?? NONE! Fine, so this only mean he’s again cooking something inside the kitchen, then let’s leave him be on his own busy days behind the scene. Let’s just keep each other’s company for the mean time, entertain ourselves with thoughts about the guy. And in no time he’ll be out there before we know it he’ll be at the airport boarding his flight for his WT concert series on his next stop to shake his stage with his music.

But before I go any further with the article topic which is just bits and pieces to pick up, may I just remind that Thailand concert had been postpone to August 24 and that ticket selling are now opened for those who may have not purchase it yet. At the same thought Bangkok is cordially inviting KHJ international fans to come visit Thailand to watch his concert and to have a chance to see the beauty of the country. You still have a month to think about it and prepare in case you have decided. Although this isn’t the concert next stop, Japan should be the next, scheduled on the 29th and 30th of July at Yokohama arena. See you there!!

ONE TIME AT LOST

In my recent  article Dream Fate, many of my readers had share their thoughts and I really want to thank everyone for taking their time to read and comment. Among the comments there’s one that caught my attention as she said “it’s an eye opener.” she got what I mean out of the article I wrote! It’s really an eye opener for those fans who might have lost their way from the journey where Hyun Joong is taking. And I was one guilty fan who had lost that direction one time within the period of my journey with Hyun Joong. I told myself one day I’m gonna share what I have experienced being a fan and learn something out of that experience.

I would be very honest there was one time after IG, I was tempted by another Korean actor to write about him since I had the chance to work with this artist before Hyun Joong’s concert in Seoul. In short I was being swayed!! Someone from the inside said “this star is very popular but he was filled with controversial issues and rumors, but it seems no one from the circle of his fans to be openly defending him.”

What’s new, every time there’s a hot artist gaining so much popularity there’s always people who wants to bring him down. Hyun Joong had gone from the same road for years of being badly criticized. The only difference is, Hyun Joong’s fans are there to defend him openly and protect him at all times and at all cost. And now that he had proven himself as an actor, he finally gained the media recognition and praises from here and there. People had seen what they have failed to see from Hyun Joong as a true skilled actor.

LOYALTY CHECK

This insider suggested to me to write about this actor and defend. I opened up another blog site under a different user name, so as not to confuse my readers since Kim Hyun Joong and this artist belong to one agent. They may not be competitor having different categories, still in the public eye in one point in time they were.

Although my intention is defending a deserving co-artist and I have clearly emphasized that I am not a fan of this actor!! I was able to write three articles about him in just one sitting and post them, however, I know all the while reading from those articles lack the passion as what LazerKim has for Kim Hyun Joong. I learned a lot out of the incident being a simple fan writer. And so I stopped, I think I did what I have to do for a co-artist and I’m off the hook.

That time I was like testing the water if it’s fine, but I got drowned and here’s the guy rescuing me from getting any deeper, and he’s just short of saying “Hey Lazerkim you don’t belong there, here’s your home, now stay put!!! You cannot joke other people that you can write without passion to your subject!!” And he’s right, one cannot just write putting words together without feelings, because readers do feel from the writer. This was one lesson learned for me in losing my way back home. I tend to stumble but for some reasons I can only say “there’s no better place like home”, and this blog site is my home ever since!

LEARNING FROM MISTAKES

Another lesson for me during my hectic busy days and the airing of IG at the same period that goes, “You don’t leave your idol in times when he needed you as his fan.” We fans have the choices whoever we want to follow, it’s our right. But Hyun Joong as an artist doesn’t have that same right to choose. He embraces whoever is in front of him, be it good or bad it doesn’t matter for as long as he’s making you happy as his fan. That’s the essence of being an entertainer. BUT he is also a human who can feel hurt.

I posted the lyrics of the song “When the Day Passes by” sung by Hyun Joong for IG, other than the reason that I fell for this song, and encouraging him to do more ballads, the lyrics somehow hit me deep in my heart, and it hurts! Simply because I was guilty of being swayed by another artist, specifically this line from that song;

I hate you, are you listening?…..You’re not next to me…..

I get SCARED That you will get tired of this long trip and let go of me, please hold onto me

Ouch!!!…….This was just co-incident, of course the song was not intending to make anyone guilty or what!! But somehow the song was being truthful, that when someone loves you so deeply to the extent of caring and protecting, sometimes there’s also fear of losing that person. This is very natural to any relationship, friendship, or even a stranger over the internet whom we don’t meet eye to eye, yet there’s a good rapport in interacting with this stranger that you wouldn’t want to lose.

Same with Hyun Joong, he doesn’t have any idea who his fans are, may not have met them in person, not meeting eye to eye yet there’s that rapport or connection between him and his fans and I felt this very strongly during his concerts, as I watch him and his fans from the audience gallery, that the connection is so powerful. He loves performing on stage because it’s his only chance to personally interact with his fans and he loves every moment of it. It would hurt him to lose that rapport from his fans and he would do everything in his power to get hold of you and not letting go ever. That’s how much he loves his fans.

LAZERKIM

With the same thought reading from here was such a pleasure for him, dedicating all 374 articles of LazerKim is solely all about Kim Hyun Joong, from a loyal fan with all smiles on him while reading! BUT upon knowing there’s another article for another artist, from the same writer, I think it’s an “ouch” for him!! Which is a natural reaction to anyone, be it an artist or not of course! I got the biggest mistake there being a loyal fan writer, my fault, but I learned from that mistake. That every single fan is important to Kim Hyun Joong, and it will hurt him to lose even just one of them.

On writing about the other artist, I was trying hard to put LazerKim on the writer, but the feeling is different, it somehow lacks the same connection I have whenever I write about Hyun Joong, as he said “passion cannot be faked”, and I think he’s right!

Other than the fact Kim Hyun Joong is ONLY ONE, that nothing and no one can alter that fact, I realize that quite clearly, he is not the type of artist whom you can easily forget or take for granted. He will haunt you until you come back to him, that’s how powerful his charisma is, and he can win you back, he’s always the winner, remember? Take it from LazerKim!!

Apology had been accepted weeks before going back on stage, and what killed me the most is that, the same kindness, the same thoughtfulness, the same friendly warmth heart, remained unchanged from Kim Hyun Joong, and he said,

“It doesn’t matter how much you look around, the important thing is you came back as a whole with greater love as my fan……”

Kim Hyun Joong [article] DREAM FATE

BsLNneoCIAANmiS

By: LazerKim            As Kim Hyun Joong started rolling up the curtain on his World Tour concert series for this year, we have seen a brand new Kim Hyun Joong right on top of the stage to share with us, a collection of his past and current music wrapped in one memorable show. He again innovated this concerts in a different approached and I must say a more impressive than ever. But the most important thing in this concert series is a higher level of development in Hyun Joong’s singing and dancing skills.

He has even much greater power on stage this time on how he captured his audience. Hyun Joong took a rest from dancing for over a year that I wasn’t expecting to see such stamina even stronger this time and had seen much further improvement both in his singing and dancing  skills. It’s one great show shined by a single STAR Kim Hyun Joong, pouring out every power he got in one most unforgettable moment! Don’t fail to see it!

ALBUM RELEASED

Hyun Joong recently released his Korean single Beauty Beauty which is now on top of the chart, go grab your copy now!! Actually he had released his dance music both in Korean (Timing, Habit) and Japanese (Hot Sun) one after the other that has been keeping him busy the past months. Grab a copy of each singles, let’s pick up all memories that we can get while it’s hot!

Since I’ve been at work mode further preparing for World Tour next stop, I haven’t got the chance to browse around to share updates with you, I’m putting up this article just for the record as a part of Hyun Joong’s journey, two important items which I should have posted weeks ago but time just kept pulling me away from here. I’m so happy to be back, as promised I’ll just pop out, so here I am!

DREAM CHANCE

Last year 2013 Hyun Joong performed a different concert series as a rocker singing with a live band and I was given the chance to work on those shows, that after which I was all wishing I could have another chance to work with him again. His drama came out, I became so pre-occupied on the stage production that honestly I have almost forgotten that dream I had, to work with him again. Somewhere along the way, our roads crossed again unexpectedly, and knowing this is gonna be his last dance concert, I’m truly happy to be a part of it.

May I just share, as Hyun Joong said, during one of our rehearsals “Fate comes when you encounter a person whom you cannot forget and had gone from your eye sight, in some magical way that person comes back, if so, don’t let go because it’s fate that lead you to that person.”

What he said became true to me and I’m so thankful I grabbed that chance to hold on and never let go. I will never let go of my idol again!

BsLNrFRCcAELA2tWISH LIST

Hyun Joong asked, “what can I do for my fans that I can keep them company during my absence?”  Since Hyun Joong has been known to us as the gentle healing idol, how I wish to be left with an album that contains all love songs which he have not created among his album collections, trying ballad songs isn’t bad at all. And it’s a great feel to have an easy listening music from Hyun Joong and his romantic side to surface, that makes me fall for him over and over again.

Among the love songs that Hyun Joong sang, for me this OST When Today Passes By  is the best. So simple but it highlights the sweetness of his voice and his emotions blend together that made this song perfect! This song is very meaningful to him during his period of struggles and rising to a someone with new image.

I had the chance to carefully listened to this song during our concert rehearsals “When Day Passes By” and I didn’t realize how meaningful this song was. How I wish Hyun Joong would sing more ballad love songs like this before he leaves.

I think among many songs of Hyun Joong this song had been translated in so many different language at YouTube. May I just write the lyrics of this song, I know I’m the late bloomer here, but I just want to put this in my blog, here it goes…

When Today Passes By

I just spent an entire day, thinking only about you, blankly swallowing tears

I ran for a while because I felt like going crazy, I call out to you on the top of my lungs

I want to be by your side and protect you everyday, words I want to say to you all day

I say that I love you, I love you, I say that I hate you, I hate you, are you listening?

You’re not next to me, when today passes, will tomorrow comes? Night is coming.

Will you tell me, will you tell me when today passes? sometimes, I get SCARED

That you will get tired of this long trip and let go of me, please hold onto me

I want to be by your side and protect you everyday, Can you hear me?

Where are you right now?

I say that I love you, I love you I say that I hate you, I hate you

Are you listening, you’re not next to me, when today will tomorrow comes?

Night is coming, When today passes, when today passes, when the pain ends

A day is so long, that I’m afraid I’ll lose you, when today passes

I say that I love you I love you, I say that I hate you, I hate you, 

I’m always at your side, when today passes by tomorrow will come.

If only you would know, When today passes by, when today passes by……

CONCERT STAR MESSAGE

At the concert in Seoul Hyun Joong shared his own video message to his S.Korean fans, this follows to the succeeding concert series, but it shall be shown in writing on stage screen in different languages.

I cried bucket of tears as I read this message. Sometimes it takes a lot of pain just to realize how important a person is in our life, when he or she’s no longer around, but as Hyun Joong said “Fate takes the lead……and they comes back to you with greater love…..”  For those who may not have read it, here it is.

A time that’s like a dream, And to say it’s ending is regretful If it’s a dream I wish I don’t wake up from it…

If it’s ending, I wish I can turn back the time… From the beginning… All over again?

Right now I wish that this moment could be forever

Right now I will make you all feel How much I am thankful to all of you

How much I love all of you     

‘To My Beauty’  Everyone!!! I love you. Thank you. And also…I always…Want to see everyone.   Really, truly…

 From the bottom of my heart…. Kim Hyun Joong

Br8M2L9CMAE5QVQMY WORDS TO YOU

In my previous articles, I have always been writing that “knowing Kim Hyun Joong is the best thing that ever happened to me.” I was once down and helplessly but he lead me to this space to share my thoughts all about Kim Hyun Joong as my cure. Likewise during the time he’s down, he comes to read from here, and there he is flying on cloud nine again!

Little did I know that I’ll be meeting him again, my dream came true and just like Hyun Joong, how I wish my dream would be endless.

One day I’ll wake up, and you’ll be somewhere. But I will not stop from dreaming because I know you’ll be back soon….. I would just be waiting and stay by your side………so keep the love on stage!

Fans do come and go, but it doesn’t mean you are forgotten. Just like in this blog, the real world may be pulling me from here, but I kept coming back, knowing someone from here is waiting to read all about Kim Hyun Joong.

Keep the dreams while you’re there and we’ll be dreaming with you, don’t regret because it doesn’t end from here. In our thoughts we can always go back, because you’re leaving us with so much memories we treasured. Don’t thank us because we owe you more than you know it. We will be waiting come rain or shine, until you come back to us…

Kim Hyun Joong you are always loved and I sincerely hope you felt it somehow in my own little humble way through this blog. Thank you for being you Kim Hyun Joong, still as my ONE AND ONLY….

Kim Hyun Joong [article] HE’S BACK!

nIlohTI (1)

By: LazerKim                    In a crowded room I was hoping to see the guy I’ve been waiting for, and what I had in mind was the looks from the last time I had seen him, that I have almost forgotten that this guy changes his image every time he’s in his hiding! And when he finally shows up, it definitely seem like meeting another man!! Who else would I be talking about? Well, Kim Hyun Joong the singer is back in town!! What can I say?? Nothing….it’s just that I can’t breath or say anything upon seeing him because he’s so HOT!! Isn’t he gorgeous in his new looks!! He aged again by one year and yet he’s much younger looking and really fresh in his hair style!

Honestly, I’m pretty much of a critic with other young artists who goes for weird color looking hair style!! Pardon me if I may sound offensive to other young Kpop stars, but I think I’m not too young anymore to go with flashy fashion trend!! But when I have seen Hyun Joong’s new look, I think it’s the first time for me to really appreciate what I used to dislike in the past! I must admit I even fell for this guy with his two tone colored hair that I just love it!!

In my previous articles way back in time, I have always mentioned that Hyun Joong is a type of person that anything he puts on in his body is just perfect for him, be it with clothes, accessories, and any hair style. He’s consistently handsome in so many different styles. If you’re a fan who’s fond of collecting his photos from the time he started in the lime light, and had seen him in different hair style, I wouldn’t ask which of those photos you have collected to pick the most handsome, but I would ask you to pick the less pleasing ones! I wonder if you would pick even just one!! Kim Hyun Joong is naturally handsome in any angle be it in photos, on screen and in person, and that is why he is being called PERFECT because he truly is perfectly handsome!!

OVER WITH HANG-OVER

An actor decided to change his image after doing a successful drama project, to the extent of changing himself from head to foot in getting rid of a very cold distant character which described the person he recently portrayed in that drama! I may have speculated Hyun Joong might have done the same thing, doing Shin Jung Tae for months and adopting this character on and off screen may be tough, specially he personally loved the character just as much as many of us did.

Just like many of us who was captured by Shin Jung Tae and IG withdrawal, it took time before he finally got back being Kim Hyun Joong the singer, and he may have gone over with the mysterious character! And in the near future we’ll be seeing Hyun Jung bouncing back on stage in a totally different person singing for us! Well, he recently started with a fan meet in Yokohama that gave his fans a real shock on his new looks, that made his Japanese fans stated “is this really him”? It’s funny I asked the same question upon seeing him from up far!

I thought I’m done thinking of Shin Jung Tae, but when he started singing IG’s OST “If today goes by” on that stage, oh boy I found myself falling in love with him again!! I guess my hang-over isn’t over as yet! I was wondering then if Hyun Joong had gone over with Shin Jung Tae’s character?? Well maybe, but I’m sure the desire of rushing back on filming as an actor is still with him! It’s a very natural feelings for an artist to do more after a successful project. Nevertheless, seeing his fans in front of him again in Yokohama, brought back happy memories of rocking the stage with his music being loved by millions made him just as excited as ever. It’s like doing the show for the first time again! Indeed the singer is back!!

LAST DANCE!

Kim Hyun Joong is back to being a Kpop idol for the last time before he bid farewell as a dancer and shall be launching his upcoming album Hot Sun pretty soon, this could probably be our last chance to see him dance on stage. It’s like putting a memorable end to where he started to be able to cultivate a fresh new beginning in the near future.

Many of his veteran fans had been with him as he did his first steps in dancing in 2005, until such time those handful fans grew to millions worldwide over the years. How I envy those fans to have witnessed how he started being a dancer/singer idol, who had seen him doing his very first dance piece and up until now that Hyun Joong shall be doing his last piece as a dancer, they remained at his side over the years.

There’s a saying, a dancer will always be a dancer, whether it’s a gifted or acquired talent, what matters most is how he was developed and the amount of sincere effort to be a good dancer. Kim Hyun Joong shall always be remembered as a dancer and how he had innovated his shows from a simple fan meet turning it to concerts in his Asian concert tours in 2012.

As a solo dance singer, he started with Breakdown as his first album that for me it will always remained unforgettable, because it was here that I was totally captured by his magic spell in 2011! Oh you can’t just imagine how I turned to be like his slave!! Waking up in the morning taking my cup of coffee having him on my mind and tweeter became my daily morning papers reading news all about Kim Hyun Joong! And as the night falls, that’s when I turned to writing articles about the guy!! Such great memories that brought life to my life!! Simple it may be, but it’s Kim Hyun Joong that made those memories precious as ever!

STAR’S BIG DAY!

Each year that this season comes, June 6th became a big day to Hyun Joong’s fans that the world celebrates this day with him as the birth of a star. No matter where Hyun Joong may be on this day personally celebrating with his friends, but out of his sight, it is on this particular day that his fans from different groups or different countries gather together to celebrate.

As for me here, I would like to do it on my own sharing thoughts of him, on how he had changed a part of me being a fan of one particular artist for the first time in the long years of my life in showbiz industry. Hyun Joong is the only one who had really captured my whole being among all the artists I’ve watched performed, be it on stage, TV, movies or had the chance to worked with some. I am always thankful being a fan just like anyone that lead me to be inspired by him in anything I do. Others may accuse me of being obsessive in writing daily articles all about KHJ in 2012, but I’ll gladly accept it because it made me a better person I think.

To Kim Hyun Joong, you are a great artist, and from this day onward may your dreams come true, which I never doubt, because you do work it out to make your dreams exist in reality.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

HOT SUN!

This time Hyun Joong is giving us a big birthday treat as he will be releasing his next album HOT SUN on June 18th. And since it’s a treat for us fans, let us support and place him again on top of Oricon as we always have done in his previous projects. He’ll start rolling with fan meet events and concerts by the end of this month onto his World Tour by July!

Isn’t this just great? For some fans, it may have been such boring months waiting for him to get out there after IG, but it’s worth waiting for, we’ll have a bunch of fun as Hyun Joong enjoys his stage as a dance singer, it’s just so great seeing him and having his music be heard worldwide once again!

Oh we would surely miss him dance on stage after his world tour, so if there’s a chance for us to attend to his upcoming concert series, grab that chance, specially if he’s coming to your country. Be a part of that memory, be there, and let’s support his music! It’s a date with a star Kim Hyun Joong……….he’s back!!!

Kim Hyun Joong…[article] PRIVATELY SPEAKING

1504017_600027386759990_8385952945340495897_n

By: LazerKim                  Don’t you miss this laughter from Kim Hyun Joong after his three months filming for Inspiring Generation? At last I have seen him on stage again joking with his fans, and I would say he had relaxed after taking a break spending his days at Jeju Island scuba diving and hitting the golf course. This photo above was taken yesterday April 12th at a fan meet in Seoul, and here he emphasized his future plans before his date with the military camp as he was asked by the show MC and responded as follows:

  • Release an album in Japan (He already finished recording)
  • Release another album in Korea
  • World Tour
  • Act in another drama (he would like to show his acting again)
  • If there is an occasion, Japan tour next year
  • Charity concert (no fee) for which I will raise the fund (laugh)

In another interview, Hyun Joong mentioned that this will be the last dance music album that he’ll be doing which shall be released next month in May this year. It seems Hyun Joong shall be resigning as a dancer, but not as a singer. It’s in his time-table that once he reaches the age 30, he’ll eventually stop from doing dance music. Fair enough since Hyun Joong had been doing dance music for almost 10 years of his career. I know everyone would miss his dance moves and dance music, but knowing the guy, he loves changes, re-inventing and developing himself into something new. And besides, of all his talents, it’s dancing that is first to expire, whether we like or not, that’s reality among dancers.

KIM HYUN JOONG TALKS

I read this interview with Hyun Joong which I have been wanting to share my views about the Kpop idols, and I’m glad he opened up this matter. I would like to point out some particular lines from his statement and share my own opinion. Here it goes, as Hyun Joong stated:

“If I had to become an idol once again, I wouldn’t be able to do it. There’s a strong belief that idols aren’t singer ‘N sync in America is considered an artist, but in Korea and Japan idols aren’t seen as artists, and their image is limited.”

“Idols can be in relationships too, but at one point there was a time when they said that idols shouldn’t date. When idols act, there’s an uncertainty just because they’re idols. Even when they buy cars, the public turns it around and says that ‘the idol brought a car’. There’s a pre-fixed notion about idols. It’s true that idols are young, but they’re also cultured people in this land. It’s unfortunate.”

The rest of the interview can be read at kpopstarz for those who have not read the article, here’s the link below.

LAZERKIM’S THOUGHTS

I’m not a fan of any Kpop idol group, it was only Hyun Joong who introduced Kpop music to me since he was with SS501 which was categorized as Kpop idol group band. As his fan, I came in when he was already a solo singer, but have seen him first from BOF as an actor. It was only when I started researching and writing all about KHJ that I knew he started from SS501 as a singer.

I have read a lot of comments from other sites that there are people who seem to be “allergic” to Kpop idols who goes for acting in dramas. Comments such as “I would watch this or that drama so long as the lead is not an idol”! Well, we have different opinion, we have our individual choice what drama to watch or what music to listen to, but I feel the anti-Kpop are so unfair in their way of thinking! Or this may not only goes to drama fans but also to producers! I just don’t get it as to why can’t idols be called singers or actors? If they have actually performed professionally on stage as singers or dancers and have acted in dramas, then definitely they should be called artists. They may not be that excellent, but still it doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t have the right to be called artists.

And yes Hyun Joong is right, there may be a stereotype concerning idols that some people does not even consider them artists. And this is just so painful to these idols. As I myself is an artist too, I do believe talents can be developed, the fact that it can also be acquired so why can’t these aspiring artists be given a room to develop themselves? They cannot be developed if they are not given the chance to do so. I think this is just a matter of being open-minded instead of immediately closing doors to these artists specially the deserving ones.

Legitimate agents do sponsor training for aspiring artists and before doing so, they screen these artists, evaluate whatever they got, be it in singing, dancing or acting, of course with consideration of looks or there are even artists who are not so good-looking but they have great talents. BUT majority of these artists started from zero, not to mention there are artists with gifted talents, they too started from somewhere down below. Admittedly there are Kpop idol groups with larger members and some of these members may not be that good (at present) but we may never know what’s in store for them in the future. They might be even greater singers or actors than expected in the future.

DATING GAME

It’s true that there are entertainment agents in Korea or Japan literally discourage their artists in dating, as a part of preserving or protecting their artist’s image whether the artists keep this dating in private or go public and this is so sad, because it’s natural for human to have relationships. For obvious reasons these agents of course earn through their artists and idol groups do have a large fan base consisting of teenagers. These young fans dwell on having “imaginary relationship” with their most admirable idols, that they do not allow their respective idols to have any relationship with other girls or they walk away from their idols! It’s like tying a knot with huge number of strangers on the part of the artists!!

I couldn’t forget a case filed in S.Korea which I have read few years ago, that a Korean female celeb was thrown soy sauce to her in a public restaurant by a jealous fan of her rumored celeb boyfriend!! This was just one incident showing how jealous some young Korean fans were. It’s like these idols are becoming slaves of their own fans, then I would say this entertainment world is somewhat scary!! In reality, we can never even own anybody in this real world in fact, not even our own life time partner, they too have their individual mind!!

It’s different with the westerns, that even artists go public with their personal affairs, their fans stay with them and remain unchanged. Why is it have to be different with Koreans?? I do hope with what Hyun Joong opened up about idol life can enlighten people out there living in primitive age would change their views about reality in showbiz. Artists are not your slaves, they too deserves what relationship you got with others.

HAPPY AND CONTENTED

At the same interview Hyun Joong stated this:

“There’s nothing that I’m lacking because I’ve never had a proper relationship. Although my personal life has been somewhat violated, I was fortunate enough to get chosen among 1 million people who auditioned. I’m in the so-called 10% that became a celebrity. That’s the reason why I should think about this matter and be happy regardless.

I’m not sure if I got the right understanding from what Hyun Joong was trying to say. But for me it seems Hyun Joong made a lot of personal sacrifice to be where is now. I couldn’t say he never dated anyone, I’m sure he did, as he admitted in the past, it’s just that he haven’t had a committed relationship. If Hyun Joong is not a big star and he’s just an ordinary man, it should have been easier for him to have a normal relationship, with his good qualities, who wouldn’t grab him? What’s the difference? Well, he haven’t found her!! That’s the big difference!!

I remain consistently truthful to what I write that no matter how other fans encouraged me to talk about his private affair, I prefer to respect his privacy and to defend him from others who maliciously create links between him and his co-celebs. Hyun Joong denied having dated with Uee, and so be it, put an end to the rumors. We have known him to be that honest, so why else others has to insist on something that is not true? And no matter how much we wanted him to go out dating around or keep his privacy to himself, that’s gonna be his choice and not ours, we’re just his fans staying behind him.

HOPES FOR ENLIGHTENMENT

Korea should be proud that they do have great artists from the idol groups to look up to, how much these people brought the country to the top A global popularity in showbiz entertainment and I think the Kpop idols should be given enough room in developing their craft by giving them chances instead of discriminating them or being out-cast from the rest of the actors and singers. The idols deserve the same respect as other professional artists do.

I would say Hyun Joong is a very good example of history in the entertainment world. He started with an idol group band, and I would say he was also a victim of being badly criticized, but where is he now? He’s up there on cloud nine being loved by millions globally! Fine, being criticized is also a challenge in proving oneself, but come on, even Hyun Joong came from an idol group, he is an artist by all means. And just the same with other idols, they too should be treated with proper respect.

May I just mention this fact, that I think the showbiz producers should be the developers and the builders of entertainment, that I’m hoping it’s not only money that matters to them. Business may be a hit or miss kinda thing like a gamble, but values do matter a lot.

I’m so proud of Hyun Joong as he stood up behind the idols and speak up what he truly think and feel being one of them in his past. Indeed he’s a true leader, defending those who deserves equal respect. I got high hopes that the people concern would hear him out and be enlightened.

And with that, I end my article from here as I bid everyone a pleasant day! I do hope we learned something from the interview with Kim Hyun Joong as he shared with us his thoughts and feelings.

Kim Hyun Joong…[article] FAREWELL JUNG TAE

Bka7RqmCQAEze3w

By: LazerKim                  Kim Hyun Joong had finally ended his daily shoots on his come back drama Inspiring Generation, though a lot of tears were shown from Shin Jung Tae towards the last two episodes on-screen that touched our hearts, behind it were all smiles from the great hero! As Shin Jung Tae had successfully accomplished his mission, Kim Hyun Joong also had achieved his goal in performing this epic drama character and had brought all his best effort being an action star, a role which he have ever dreamed of performing.

If we find it hard to break away from Shin Jung Tae after watching him for three months, so much so with Hyun Joong as he said in an interview “It still hasnt hit me that ‘Inspiring Generation’ has ended. I was greatly immersed & isnt easy to send SJT off, I feel down. I really like SJT, I was obsessed.” (@AlienPrinceKHJ)

INSPIRED BY INSPIRING PEOPLE

Hyun Joong never fail to thank his fans untiring support in any of his projects, but I think this time I would say the pleasure is all ours as his fans that Hyun Joong brought us a lot of joy for the last three months while we watched him in his come back drama Inspiring Generation. I’m so thankful to our hero for taking this drama project, for his sincere effort in bringing out the best in him that made all his fans truly proud of him and most of all thank you Hyun Joong for giving us the chance to watch you on screen on regular basis for the last three month.

I also would like to thank those fans for their endless effort to recap this drama that really was very helpful to those busy fans like myself to catch up in the drama even just by reading each episodes. Your effort is truly appreciated. To those fans who had gone out of their way to monitor Hyun Joong behind the scene during his location shoots and had shared with us videos and pictures, thank you so much. You just don’t know how much you have inspired Hyun Joong as an artist to be there with him to support. And for us here from afar who have been watching Hyun Joong who had created Shin Jung Tae, he will be very much missed by millions.

Well, we have now three different characters whom we met along the way as we travel with Kim Hyun Joong and these three characters Yoon Ji Hoo, Beak Sung Jo, and Shin Jung Tae, are meant to be remembered. They will remain always be alive in our heart and mind with or without Kim Hyun Joong, there’s always gonna be these characters to watch over and over again. Thanks to Hyun Joong for bringing them to our lives to keep. And I sincerely hope there will be more characters that Hyun Joong would bring us in the near future. We will always be looking forward for more dramas from Hyun Joong, and we just have to keep in mind that he never failed us his fans.

DRAMA AFTERMATH

After IG’s final episode had been aired, I had the chance to browse around and to see how Hyun Joong fans reacted on the finale. Well fans still talk about how the drama ended with our individual opinion which I think the writer of IG was successful in his intention of having the viewers conclude its ending, instead of putting a clear conclusion on the plot. It’s been over four days now after the final airing while I’m writing this article but viewers still talk about how Shin Jung Tae ended his story!

And for me how I wish this drama hadn’t ended yet, because I still want to know how Shin Jung Tae live his life after those fighting, tragic event of losing a love one and meeting his lost sister! I’m curious of Jung Tae’s new life, to the extent of creating a story in my mind to conclude the plot!

I read a lot of comments in the past saying that Kdrama writers are good in starting a drama plot but poor in ending it up. Of course I’m not pertaining to all Kdramas, but for some yes I agree, there are particular dramas which ended in a lousy way! I’m sorry about that, I don’t mean to be a Kdrama critic here, but with IG’s writer, he did a good job in creating a difference and as I mentioned earlier he was successful in putting up some thoughts to the viewers after watching the finale in concluding Shin Jung Tae’s story.

And most of all, Kim Hyun Joong was quite successful in creating Shin Jung Tae’s character that cannot be easily forgotten. This character had been with Hyun Joong’s fans for three months as if he’s already a part of  Wednesdays and Thursdays weekly life routine of anticipating the drama and now that it ended, he will be missed. Some fans would like to have a part two for Inspiring Generation and I wouldn’t blame them because Hyun Joong did a tremendous job in this drama and so with the other casts. As for me, I’m wishing he would have another drama project for this year. It may be too much to wish for but I just can’t get enough of Kim Hyun Joong as an actor, that’s just it!

They said the success of a show doesn’t only rate on how many people had watched it, but it matters most when people talks about it after the show had been shown. I was all smiling while browsing around reading comments about IG from other sites, sharing opinion about Shin Jung Tae’s life and how this drama ended! And yes, what a way to end this drama, it did make a lot of difference and I just can’t help re-watching Inspiring Generation over again!

INSPIRING OST

Ever since Inspiring Generation was aired, I started waiting for Hyun Joong to sing OST for this drama as what I have been wishing for. And finally at the later part of the drama, this song When Today Passed By sung by Kim Hyun Joong was played! I couldn’t describe how I felt but I truly fell in love with this song and I was all itching to write an article as soon as I have heard it because this song was just so inspiring! I would say even this OST was first played towards the later episode, it was so effective to the viewers, the last song that they hear from this drama shall be the first to remember Kim Hyun Joong as ShinJung Tae!

Well Hyun Joong had left us another beautiful song after his come back drama, so what’s next? Is he coming back to us as a singer? That’s very likely to happen after his break, we can just wait and look forward till he comes back to us! *sigh* Why on earth can’t I get enough of Kim Hyun Joong?? I knew this will happen after his drama project, I just keep wanting for more from him, another drama, another OST, another concert or album!

We are just so lucky fans in reality because we have chosen someone who is a multi-talented artist to follow, who can do just anything we want whenever we miss him. It’s so handy, so easy to bring him along with us anywhere we go through his music and he knows how to spoil his fans, giving anything we want from him as an artist! Hyun Joong has so many bloggers too that’s also handy for those new fans who wanted to know him better. His pictures are even all over the internet that are so easy to find! What more can we ask for?

WRAPPING UP TOWARDS MILITARY GATE!!

Oh well, this is it! I just happen to pass by and visit my blog to say hello to everyone! I have written articles prior to airing of Inspiring Generation inviting everyone to watch and it’s time for me to wrap up and thank everyone for watching. I may not be around during its airing but I was just taking a walk checking on Hyun Joong behind the scene from time to time!

Oh no this news came up, while writing this part that I would like to share with you, here it goes:

Idol actor Kim Hyun Joong recently sat down for an interview with “Star Today ”and talked about his plans leading up to the date of his army enlistment.

He said, “I have plans to enlist in the army next year. Before I officially enlist, I’d like to tackle one more movie or drama if possible. After wrapping up my most recent drama, I just want to be able to blaze through everything and do as much as I can. As though my days were numbered. I think to myself, ‘After today passes, tomorrow will come’ and set out to do everything with great passion. People around me tell me that I should take a break since I have been able to complete many good projects. They told me to look after my body while I still have a good image. But, even if I get criticized, I’d rather just push forward and instead of looking after my image, I’d prefer gaining a ton of experience so I can grow my talents. If I fail, then I fail, and if I succeed, then I succeed.”

He also added, “My personality is actually similar to how water ebbs and flows, but after I became a celebrity, I think all of that changed.”

 (source: soompi) BkXCGfSCYAA7oqW LAZERKIM REACT!!

Oh my, this is one thing I’m scared of, now it’s coming from him, Kim Hyun Joong had finally disclosed his plans of getting to the military gates next year 2015!! How many months to go do we have? And here’s what I want to tell Hyun Joong…

“I think you’re right kiddo, your days are numbered, eight months from now comes January 2015….you may take your break, fine,but please don’t take too long…please I beg you, I know this isn’t that easy, but drama is much better than doing movie! Movie is just two hours or less, but with drama we can watch you for three months, and sing more OST, that’s a real good bonus for us… PLEASE!!”

There’s a saying, destiny would take you wherever you are suppose to be, that no matter how much you go the other way, you’re bound to be where destiny would take you. I have always believe in Hyun Joong’s ability as an actor, singer and dancer, in any project he has, he’s always been 100% at his best effort, rain or shine any moment that work calls for it, he got it, and I truly believe gaining even more experience is priceless for an artist. There’s no other place where Hyun Joong belong to except up there towards success. Be it failure or success, nothing matters, because his fans will always be at his side.

It feels sad reading this news straight from Hyun Joong, nevertheless, be glad at least he has plans to take another drama project, at least we can still have another character to keep in our memory lane and there’s still time, shorter it may be but still we got chances to gather each and every piece that will always remind us about Kim Hyun Joong. He will use every hour to do something that he can leave for his fans to remember him.

And since he’ll be doing this for his fans, we shall be looking forward to his next project, support and be there at his side. I think this is the best we can do as Hyun Joong’s fan. Let us inspire him further as the clock is ticking real fast from now.

As we bid farewell to Shin Jung Tae and saying hello again to Kim Hyun Joong, as we look forward to the next character that he will create! See you soon…

Kim Hyun Joong… [article] BRAVE CHALLENGER

uOR0XSJ

By: LazerKim            It’s been two weeks since Kim Hyun Joong’s Inspiring Generation had been airing in S.Korea, and for that whole weeks Hyun Joong has been the news in the entertainment pages of the media not only In S. Korea but in the international newspapers and magazines as well! This drama has been continuously receiving a lot of praises, good feedback on Kim Hyun Joong and the over all production package.

There were local reruns of this drama after its pilot airing of Episodes 1 and 2 last January 15 and 16, then followed for another rerun for Episodes 3 and 4 last week, giving chances to those who might have not watched it on the drama in S.Korea and had delivered good results too. I have read that Inspiring Generation also earned advertisements nine times greater than the previous KBS2 drama. This I guess is a good sign!

1535532_557659507663445_2059973676_n

HIGHLIGHTING IG SCENES EPISODE 3 AND 4

I find Episode 3 very interesting that I got hooked on the character’s emotions. I was so touched by the scene of Shin Jung Tae’s sister Chung Ah hugging her father who brought her a teddy bear! Her father pretended to be someone else, but obviously she knew who he was. Another scene that I like was when Ok Ryun confronted Gaya and fought with each other! Ok Ryun had a bleeding nose and Kaya handed a handkerchief to her then walk away. That was really cute! Then Shin Jung Tae’s first kiss with Gaya was quite unexpected! Is his first kiss gonna be his first love as well? Will Ok Ryun ends up with a broken heart as Jung Tae sees her as his own sister?

Quite surprisingly in Episode 4, Gaya was being trained martial arts by her mother’s bodyguard and she actually met her father’s killer in a training fight. Why would Gaya’s father killed by someone from Gaya’s side? Who is Gaya? It was said she was the stepdaughter of a Japanese Government official and gave me the impression that this official was the true killer of Gaya’s father, but why? Is Gaya’s father a lover of her mother?

In another scene, Jung Tae’s sister Chung Ah, disappeared, giving the viewer’s impression she committed suicide by jumping in a cliff to end Jung Tae’s burden that pushed him to be a gangster. The young Jung Tae was devastated over his sister’s death or disappearance since her body was not found so I assume she’s still alive, but where did she go?

That ended the childhood portion of Shin Jung Tae as the last-minute of this episode, Kim Hyun Joong appeared as adult Shin Jung Tae in a fight scene! Oh he’s so handsome that I’m glad to see him without the scars and bruises on his face! This part could be the start of Shin Jung Tae’s being a great fighter.

There are a bunch of characters in this drama but I think each character has a significant roles in the lives of ShinJung Tae, Ok Ryun and Gaya. Ending each episode makes me eagerly wait for the next, as Inspiring Generation always leaves its viewers with questions and anticipate for answers. This even makes the drama exciting, you wouldn’t guess what’s coming up next until it’s there being seen on the next episode.

Tomorrow is Wednesday again, we have a date with Kim Hyun Joong as Episode 5 unfold we anticipate the start of the life of Shin Jung Tae who grew up into a real matured fighter.

BEHIND CAMERAS!

Last week Hyun Joong continued with his daily filming routines and this photo above caught my attention. He was doing push ups in front of a heater which I was assuming done while waiting for his shoot and there’s another photo of him doing sit ups while holding that heater! It’s freezing cold during the entire filming of this drama from start and probably until filming ends, I was smiling seeing this picture and couldn’t help saying, “what a way of keeping himself warm!” But actually he’s preparing or warm-up for a fight scene.

Then there’s another picture of Hyun Joong at a food stall truck around the filming location probably buying some food to eat during his break. He’s the star of this drama but it seemed like he’s not behind the cameras! Well superstar complex is very common in showbiz, but not with Hyun Joong. There are always personal assistants right behind him whenever he works to get anything he needs, but he’s not the type who would lean on them. If he can be on his own then he’ll be glad to be so, that’s Hyun Joong behind the scene in reality!

PROUD FAN

We have seen a lot of footage and photos of Hyun Joong while working behind the scenes not only on this drama but in every project he has. And for me I just couldn’t help the feeling of being proud as a fan and really inspired by his work attitude. Hyun Joong already has the global popularity in his hands and we can say he’s not just an ordinary person, yet he’s so down to earth. He cares about those whom he work with, he cares about people who loves him even he doesn’t know them personally and those are his fans as he had been keeping a special relationship with all of them, and I mean it all millions of fans in every part of the world!

For Hyun Joong he’s simply working just like anyone of us, as he has been doing his best at work, he doesn’t get that fame into his head and this is the very thing that I love about this guy. Once he succeeded in one project, he gets so inspired to work on the next, as he just kept going his popularity keeps multiplying! Hyun Joong has the ability to capture people without extra effort but simply being himself on and off cam. And the most amazing thing is, he has the ability to get hold of his fans for years. I’m sure the veteran fans can testify to this fact who’s been with him all these years.

I think most of my readers had first seen him in his previous dramas which I also think had boost his popularity even further. With his come back drama Inspiring Generation it is very likely he’ll gain more new fans again, which I never doubted. And I’m still hoping crossing my fingers that Hyun Joong would have another drama project after this, since he’s also intending to concentrate as an actor for this year.

CEO TALKS

I was just about to wrap up this article when I have read an interview with production CEO Yoon Se-hyun that I would just like to share a short portion which called my attention, here it goes as the CEO stated:

Q: Inspiring Generation have gathered many star-studded actors including Kim Hyun Joong and Im Soo Hyang. What are your thoughts about this?

A: There was a big question before the broadcast, ‘Why it’s Kim Hyun Joong?’ ‘Why it’s Im Soo Hyang?’. We were also thinking given the large sum of production fees they have received, why did they invite singer-turned-actors instead of using top stars actors. Taking ‘Bridal Mask’ for example, there isn’t a lot of actors who are willingly to try out this kind of dramas, very minimal. It’s probably they are afraid to be rejected to enter Japan and also exclusion from the Japanese market (due to the drama’s genre). It’s a tough decision walking down the ‘Hallyu Star’ path if they were to give up on the Japanese market. It’s never easy to make such decision. 

There was also a hot discussion regarding the ‘acting skills’ because as a singer who’s trying out the acting career, they have to show a lot of up-to-par acting elements (as compared to original actors themselves). But Hyun Joong have put a lot of effort to overcome this. 

Before the broadcast, there were many anti topics about this, almost 99% of it. Right after the first episode was aired, many articles surfaced and praised ‘Hyun Joong have finally found the right drama for him’. And the same goes to Im Soo Hyang. It was a very good start to turn antis into fans.

MY THOUGHTS

Talking about history, the more I admire Hyun Joong in taking this drama, or taking the risk of being rejected by the Japanese market if ever, which I very much doubt knowing how his Japanese fans adore him! The past is a part of history, setting aside politics whatever it may be, which has got nothing to do with entertainment. Time change and people change too, I think TV viewers are open minded with whatever they watch be it on TV or movies. This is just my personal opinion.

Pertaining to the choice of actor in taking the lead role Shin Jung Tae, it’s true I have read a lot of articles from the insects camp criticizing Hyun Joong for taking this drama. I believe an artist should be given the chance to grow and prove himself and I’m talking in general. How can an artist develop himself if he isn’t even given the chance and even painful that just before he can prove himself he was already crucified by people who are not even professional artists nor experts on this field. These people are just ordinary TV Korean drama viewers pretending to be someone they are not, or not even qualified to be so called Korean drama critics!!

I agree, Hyun Joong finally found the right drama for him, a drama which he had been wishing for to perform. I believe everything has its own time, when Hyun Joong did BOF he was the right choice to do Yoon Ji Hoo and so with PK to work on Baek Seung Jo, considering his image that time, his looks and his age, although it may not be him as a person for real, which I think was even challenging for an actor to act opposite to his real self. Now Hyun Joong got this role being a fighter, everyone obviously was shocked by his transformation!

I would say this drama is a good challenge for Hyun Joong and yes we fans know how he worked hard in preparing himself considering we have been following his daily shoots. It was so much for him to endure the freezing cold winter in bare top doing those fight scenes, it was so much to bare those insects biting him just before he can start, but Hyun Joong took all those challenges and still remain consistently modest. There’s still a long way ahead of Inspiring Generation, but it’s worth the challenge. And yes it’s a good start to turn the antis to fans!

Do you believe in Kim Hyun Joong’s magic spell?? We’ll wait and see how he cast that magic net to those people! Then I would say, welcome to the world of Kim Hyun Joong, the Brave Challenger!

Kim Hyun Joong… [article] HERO FIGHTER

1239721_551298051632924_2119864825_n

By: Lazerkim                     Kim Hyun Joong opened up the drama Inspiring Generation successfully that gave his viewers a huge shock in seeing him in a fierce fight with a totally transformed image not only of a real man but a true fighter! We have seen a lot of stills and teasers of Inspiring Generation and I think this drama is more than what I expected. I was suppose to write an article yesterday right after I have watched episode one, but I was just so speechless!

At the tweeter after episode one was aired, there were already brief reviews from here and there, having the same opinion about Hyun Joong’s improvement on his acting skills, his expressions, his looks, changes in the tone of his voice, overall he had changed a lot being an actor. He may have that short scene but very effective as opening for this drama, that it seems Hyun Joong is trying to tell us, this is me from now on, and see more of me in this character in the next episodes of this drama!

1186704_551299358299460_102589963_n

EXPRESSING THOUGHTS

I’m not writing this topic to give a review on Inspiring Generation, I’m just an ordinary drama viewer, the type who would just like to enjoy watching and would just like to share my thoughts and observation about the drama.

I was captured by the first scene as Hyun Joong was fighting in an arena giving all his strength to put that ugly man down that gave me goose bump and could hardly blink my eyes in watching Hyun Joong’s anger! After the fight scene he was seated in a bench in deep thoughts, but I felt the pain and remorse of Shin Jung Tae seeing from the gaze in his eyes, and I guess Hyun Joong caught me affected right on that scene!

It may have been a short portion of episode one but the impact on me was tremendous, considering this was only the start of the drama, it somehow said it all. A fan friend asked me if it’s really Hyun Joong on that fight scene, and yes it’s him in fact there’s a footage on that scene during its filming. If you’re a new fan and had just watched BOF recently, you probably wouldn’t recognize Hyun Joong because of his transformation. He was able to achieved those changes from head to foot most specially in acting which he had improved a lot. Of course Yoon JiHoo and Shin Jung Tae are totally different character.

The younger lead casts did really great that got me hooked and at the end of the episode I can’t help saying “that’s it?” The first episode ended but I still want to watch more!! Watching the first episode felt like it’s so short, but actually one hour had passed and it’s good though Episode 2 aired the following day! Still, I’m waiting for the adult Shin Jung Tae!

1509951_551274194968643_1680647514_n

RATINGS

Yesterday at the tweeter I read a lot of news about ratings for Inspiring Generation that showed good results for a start. I have been watching Korean dramas since 2004 and I have never cared about how these dramas rated!! Then I guess this drama would be the first time for me, out of curiosity! If I can only keep Hyun Joong inside his closet with no TV, no internet not even radio, I’ll probably do so!! Korean actors even the veterans with no exceptions worry about ratings of their dramas which is very natural to them specially on its premier. But as the drama progresses, its ratings eventually rise up.

There are three dramas currently shown from three different Korean TV networks at the same time slot. Inspiring Generation came up at the second rank for the first episode. That’s good for a start which Hyun Joong wasn’t expecting. But he has to come out on screen real soon to maintain or push that ranking further upward. This is just my personal opinion being a fan. The younger casts are doing good but the key to this drama of course is the lead adult character Kim Hyun Joong!

I believe this drama is gonna be a long lived that cannot be easily forgotten seeing from its quality and the biggest factor is our hero fighter. Inspiring Generation has a long way to travel around the world to reach out for Hyun Joong’s fans and non- fans, that surely he’ll be able to capture new hearts again! And I’m hoping this drama shall be shown in my country, dubbed in my language because Yoon Jihoo and Baek Seung Jo have not  been forgotten by my country fellowmen and surely will welcome Kim Hyun Joong as Shin Jung Tae with warm open arms.

1557490_798982463461476_397561134_n

PREMIER AFTERMATH

The previews of Inspiring Generation made a lot of noise the past weeks and that noise came out even louder after its premier, I guess I’m not alone in my thoughts that this drama is more than my expectations after watching Hyun Joong’s transformation as an actor and he’s been receiving good praises from the media entity on his initial performance on this drama.

Korean historical genre is my favorite drama to watch that most of the time childhood scenes are the first to be aired in its first few episodes, which is good for the viewers to have a better understanding of the character’s personality. While watching Episode 2, I kept seeing or imagining Kwak Dong Yun as Hyun Joong in his younger years! Oh it’s good their resemblance is just perfect!

In a news Hyun Joong was asked this question:

‘Inspiring Generation’ Kim Hyun Joong, ‘Are you nervous because of Kwak Dong-yeon’s good acting skills? NO’

KHJ: I’ve heard many people saying that I resemble Kwak Dong Yeon. I don’t know whether is it because we have the same haircut but thanks to the resemblance, I think it can give more essence to the drama. 

When asked whether is he influenced by the child actor’s remarkable acting skills…

KHJ: Absolutely not. Kwak Dong Yeon has his own thoughts and acting skills as an actor, and so do I. But as good as he’s doing in his role, I’m not feeling nervous or stressed because of this.

JUST THINKING

I was just with my wild thoughts, that what if Hyun Joong actually perform the young version of Shin Jung Tae? I’m sure I’ll be the most happiest!! I would consider this drama exceptional from the other dramas I have watched simply because Hyun Joong is in this drama! Maybe this is the effect of Hyun Joong being in hiatus from small screen for such a long time!!

I think the drama production staffs has a lot to work on editing to put more of Hyun Joong on the scenes for the next episodes! Gosh I just can’t wait, forgive me but I cannot lie, I’m sure I share the same thoughts with other fans of Hyun Joong. But I really would like to watch more of Hyun Joong scenes not because the other cast are not good, in fact they are good actors too, but as I have said, Hyun Joong’s charisma on this drama is exceptional! People are just dying to see him again and again!

After I have watched Episodes 1 and 2, I went back watching the previews and footage of the filming that honestly I just couldn’t get enough of Hyun Joong! And when I read that the adult Shin Jung Tae shall be seen again after Episode 4, I just screamed “NO WAY”!! But later on I have seen the preview for Episode 3 having Hyun Joong on this episode made me smile again!! Oh this must be crazy but who can help it? I would like to see Hyun Joong in every episode!

SPELL BOUND

There’s a growing interest among non-fans of Hyun Joong after seeing him on the initial scenes in Episode 1 of this drama, and I hope the drama producer would grab that interest! What more can I say? I’ll be counting days again until Wednesday next week comes which feels like years of waiting!!

The feeling of can’t get enough of Hyun Joong is attacking again! The feeling of being addicted to him is there again! The magic spell of Hyun Joong is pouring again! Indeed, history repeats itself that I once felt this way in 2011 that now it occur again!

But cheer up Lazer, it’s nice to fall in love again! And it’s a good feel that one time we fell in love with a flower boy, then fall for a real man, and this time falling for a true fighter, as he grows, we develop a growing love for our Hero Fighter Kim Hyun Joong! What more can I ask for? See you next week kiddo!
