Kim Hyun Joong… [article] TALK SHOWS

By: LazerKim              One thing I love watching most are Kim Hyun Joong’s interviews and his TV guesting at talk shows. There’s always a part in the show that makes you laugh. Hyun Joong has his own way of entertaining viewers in his own natural ways.  Don’t you guys miss Hyun Joong at all??  After reading updates about his plans this year, somehow we know where he is, so that gives me a peace of mind. But I do miss him everyday, isn’t that obvious, you see me here everyday writing about him!! Let’s just say, writing about him became my hobby.

At this time while Hyun Joong is in his cocoon, let’s talk behind his back!! I have collected most of his TV appearances, I’m just in the mood to talk about it from his past. I can’t help compare his TV guesting on talk shows, from the time he was still with his group and last year when he granted a lot of interviews since he was promoting Breakdown. I noticed one common ground specially on talk shows. The host’s attention seemed to be drawn to Hyun Joong one way or another more than it should be, even he was together with other guests. I would say if you’re an artist and you guested in a talk show together with Hyun Joong, unlucky you, it’s not gonna be your day!!

Hyun Joong guested at talk show King of Hearts (Strong Heart episode) together with other two idols from other idol groups. In this show, guest takes turn to relay their stories, I just noticed that even it’s the turn of the other two idols to talk, the host would turn their attention to Hyun Joong and asked the same question to the other two idols. But when it was the turn of Hyun Jong to talk, the host attention never shifted to other guests!!!

Then there was a dance showdown between the two idols, after they dance the host asked Hyun Joong what he thinks about the two idols dancing. Hyun Joong said, ” It’s good to watch them”.!!! And when it’s Hyun Joong’s turn to dance, he has the entire floor to dance his Breakdown!! The host’s attention were always being drawn to Hyun Joong, while he simply sits there and wait for his turn to talk

In another talk show Romantic Bus with popular TV host Kang Hodong, as Hyun Joong guested together with Lee Pilmo and Kim Suro. Among the TV host I think Kang Hodong had known Hyun Joong since the start of his career with SS501. This time Hyun Joong was doing Boys Over Flower when he guested on this talk show. I know nothing about the two other guests, but it seemed to me they are much senior than Hyun Joong. It was on this talk show that Hyun Joong opened up about Jacksal Chicken for the first time which he owns together with his childhood friends.

Hyun Joong would simply sit there during the show keeping cool as he answered whatever questions thrown to him as cool as he naturally is. While Lee Pilmo is some kinda over excited type of guy, and trying to dominate the air time, but somehow while Hyun Joong sit there, the hosts drew back their attention to Hyun Joong. And then on the second part of the show, the host requested Hyun Joong to sing a song.

And so he did sang Fortunate which he sang beautifully even back then and it was well appreciated. Then  this guest Lee Pilmo volunteered to sing the same song, in which if I were him I shouldn’t have done so, because he only showed Hyun Joong can do better than him!!

In another talk show Night after Night Hyun Joong was guested last year 2011 together with Lee Byung Jun an elder seemed to be a nice guy, both guests were said to have strong charisma which I believe so. I wouldn’t say Hyun Joong dominated the air time because he will not take the initiative to talk unless he is being asked to. Unlike Lee Byung Jun right after Hyun Joong had done answering the question thrown to him, Lee Byung Jun would really bat in about his opinion.

I learned a lot about Hyun Joong from this talk show, he was asked why he chose to have the same role as a flower boy student for two consecutive dramas, He said  “it’s because my fans wants to see me in a flower boy image, and besides the first time I read the plot of Playful Kiss I liked it immediately.” Both guests were asked in choosing drama, would you consider ratings as the basis for choosing? Lee Byung Jun definitely considered it. But Hyun Joong replied, “if I like the story plot I’ll grab it even I would take the secondary lead, I wouldn’t mind at all”. Hyun Joong spoke truthfully that he’s not after anything else for as long he likes something he’ll do it.

Coming up next is his guesting at Strong Heart which was quite often during the entire period of his career. The recent and the latest he guested I think that was before his concert tour in Japan. Hyun Joong brought with him a pair of his training pants which he has in his possession about 30 pairs of those. He wears it as his rehearsal outfit with matching sweat hood shirt. He brought one pair of pants to give it to Lee Seung Gi as his way of apologizing for Hyun Joong’s failing to keep an appointment for soccer games.

Hyun Joong was set to attend to that soccer game with Lee Seung Gi unfortunately he overslept and wasn’t able to make it. Lee Seung Gi was trying to catch Hyun Joong with his alibi for saying he was watching a movie till 5am that was why he wasn’t able to make it for early morning games. Hyun Joong is not good at lying I can see that for least two separate incidents. And I think Lee Seung Gi knew him quite well to corner him. Actually, Hyun Joong was out drinking with his dancers till 5am!!!

One of the guest praised Hyun Joong’s gesture to be giving his favorite pants to a friend as a way of apologizing for his short comings. Hyun Joong said he didn’t had the chance to apologized to Lee Seung Gi when he guested the other time, and so he was trying to make it up with his friend. Unfortunate his friend knew Hyun Joong’s alibi, his expression easily gave in to the alibi!! 

In another episode of Strong Heart Hyun Joong was guested together with his two members, let’s call them as member 1 and member 2. I think I have already written this in my other article, nevertheless I’ll write it again. As I mentioned earlier that every time Hyun Joong is a guest in any talk show, he would just sit there silently and he will only talk if questions are thrown to him. There was this topic about H1N1 which Hyun Joong had when the group was in Japan.

And within the discussion out of nowhere, a fight between member 1 and Hyun Joong was brought out. Hyun Joong was simply sitting there listening while member 1 even stood up trying to defend himself. It’s funny that Hyun Joong was just sitting there looking cool and relax while member 1 appeared as if he’s getting all the attention he can get from everyone!!! Unfortunately he didn’t succeed, because the discussion went back to Hyun Joong. Again a typical example of TV host drawing more attention to Hyun Joong.

I thought I was just imagining this, until it’s member 2’s turn to speak and the most unexpected just spilled out. Member 2 related his desire of whom he wants to be if ever there would be a second life. And his response was, he wants to be Kim Hyun Joong. Member 2 related that, every time the group SS501 was invited to guest at any talk show, the show host always turned their attention to Hyun Joong Leader, and member 2 would think of a way where he could be noticed. Member 2 said, Leader always get good opportunity, and that he reveled he’s jealous and envy Leader. Hyun Joong responded, “Why do you want to be me? Why don’t you try your best, work hard to improve and be yourself?  If I have a chance for a second life I would want to be Tom Cruise.  You’re talking as if you want me dead”. 

I don’t think Hyun Joong was angry but he was a bit sarcastic. Such a smart guy, no wonder he’s a sunbae not only to his group but with the other idol groups too. I smelt fishy that time, I knew something was not going right within the group, but I admired the five of them for not trying to badmouth at each other or whatever. But I was quite surprised by the heated discussion that time and my admiration to Hyun Joong on how smart he is. In this show Hyun Joong again showed his cool personality even at heated discussion, he stayed cool for the rest of the show, he was just so expressionless.

And then, there’s a part in the show that member 2 volunteered on taking Yoon Ji Hoo’s role, and Jandi was taken by another female guest, the scene was at the motorbike. Member 2 delivered the lines of Yoon Ji Hoo and hug the female.. Then Kang Hodong asked Hyun Joong to do it, play Yoon Ji Hoo again, and an older female guest was called in to take the role of Jan Di. And so Hyun Joong delivered the lines, but instead of hugging the older guest he run away from the older guest as if he was riding the motorbike!!! Hyun Joong gave a real good laugh to the audience!!

At the same episode, the host Kang Hodong asked one of the guest to do a fortune tell to Hyun Joong, and the guest related that Hyun Joong was having a relationship quite recently but broke off. Kang Hodong asked Hyun Joong if it was true, and to everyone’s surprise he admitted that in fact he had a girlfriend and broke off, the relationship lasted for five months. The guest who told Hyun Joong’s fortune was just guessing, but Hyun Joong admitted and said “what can I do I’m not good at lying.” Which is true judging from his past talk shows.

I wrote an article Love and Fame recently, about Hyun Joong having a relationship and his career at the same time. If I’ll be asked about my opinion on Hyun Joong having a relationship at this time of his career, I wouldn’t want him to. Why? Because Hyun Joong is a very honest man, he couldn’t even make alibi for himself, and he’s not good at lying, he doesn’t want to be sneaking around with his girlfriend. Hyun Joong is a free spirited type of person. And knowing how media works about the personal privacy of celeb, I wouldn’t want him to get entangled with malicious controversy. Either way he goes, hide the relationship or open it up, media will run after him, and I do not want this to happen to him. Of course this is just my personal opinion.

This is how I get to know Hyun Joong better, through watching his video clips from his interviews and talk shows. You see how a person behave on and off cam. Hyun Joong has been an apple of the eye of every talk show host. Why is that so? Because Hyun Joong  will not give you a false pretense just to impress anyone. He is himself all the time, and I admire his cool personality.

Hyun Joong has his own way of entertaining audience by just talking with him. It’s either you’ll laugh at him or learn from him. The guy is so transparent and he easily gives in to alibis!! When he talks he doesn’t even appear to be one of the richest young celeb in Korea, because he’s so humble. At the Romantic Bus it was the first time Hyun Joong disclosed his chain Jaksal Chicken, and it just so happened that the host Kang Hodong heard about Hyun Joong’s ownership.

I remembered, his high school teacher said that Hyun Joong was very submissive to his faults and that was why his teacher could not bring himself to get angry at Hyun Joong. Just the same as he admits his weak points as an artist and try to improve whatever is missing in his ability. His critics would say anything negative about his ability, but I haven’t read any criticism about his personal attitude not even his mistakes like bad pronunciation. Why is that? Because he looks cute even making mistakes, and would only give you a good laugh whenever he does!!!

Kim Hyun Joong speaks truthfully and not a self centered nor self opinionated, he’s simply being himself that people are drawn to him. In any talk shows, he’s always been the apple of the eye of any show host. Well, he’s just simply being himself as Kim Hyun Joong……..

  1. hi lazerkim! i just came across your blog and i love it…kim hyun joong is like a drug to me…if im depressed i will just remember his face and im ok…looking at his face makes you relax and feel younger..he is very talented and has a good manners…have been watching his playfull kiss drama for i dont know how many times already…hoping that someday I can go watch his concert…His a total package..singer, dancer, actor, model, leader…! A true world class star…

  2. Its me again. This quite a good article. Since everyone is focusing on whatever KHJ is doing my mind was wondering and asking myself why did he release his last videos on december 14 for almost a week since I noticed the release dates of his albums last year. Why he didnt wait till next year so its kinda like a new years gift for everyone. So, in the middle of the night last night I couldnt sleep so I read some news. For some reason why the word horoscope never left my mind since I started reading news. I started searchiing for horoscope then there was the word astrology and I started searching it in the internet instead reading horoscope that kinda misleading sometimes. Then I found website called TLC Family that gives the description of the personality of a person born each day. I never knew that a day by day astrology exist. I thought its just by how horoscope group days. I was reading mine and the days before and after that was the time. Then there is the question that stick in my head, is the videos released by means of astrology? Coz the other one is on his birthday so this one is probably pertaining to his ideal girl. Dont think that Im intruding his personal life. I based everything I do to what it is given and form a question and opinion about it. Does anybody anybody thought about it? I feel crazy writting this but its bugging me so Im just gonna write it here.

    • Hi! I’m sorry i just don’t get your point. I do believe in sun sign in fact I have an article about Hyun Joong’s sun sign. As to his ideal girl he already said as to who his ideal girls is and everyone knows it already. Ideal girl for him is just ideal but he never pursue. I think you’re talking about his digital single Marry Me, that was meant as his Xmas present to his fans and not for New Year. That digital single was really meant to be released on the 15th of dec. but released a few minutes before 15th midnight. I believe in astrology but I don’t believe in daily horoscope. Anyway thanks for reading God bless

      • hahaha…. oops. Im so wrong. Yes, what I mean Christmas. ok. I think I need to read more. Yeah, I think the Marry Me was released on his official youtube on december 14… I also dont believe on horoscope cause its misleading. Nevermind. God Bless you too… Thank you so much for everything…

  6. hello, LazerKim .are Laura in Romania.Yes I wrote yesterday in Romanian, I do not know very good English. today a translator to translate a text online and so I hope you understand because I know that does not really fit in better word, how that. I said yesterday that Kim Hyun Joong virus got a year and see that no is the cure for this, is incurable. I will not know how you feel the same thing but for him, as if I fell in love yesterday, not a year. yes, are very in love with this guy and I can not do anything about it, especially as I am by nature unchanging in feelings, so I do not know what I can do. I know, I could not even, to be around him, to see him in the flesh, but I can not love him.
    My daughter, 18 years, I say forget it, I would not be me and him is a dream, but I can not start my day without it, Is the most wonderful way to start a new day pill is most beneficial for sadness stress.listen songs and those of SS501 every day without getting bored. Fortunate song, when you hear the lady sing in the way of innocent, shy, sentimental and sexy at the same time, makes me cry of emotion, of what pass when playing. ladies and when I read about it i start crying at work and have to restrain myself not to see me someone to say I’m crazy, but I give free rein emotions, and home I never thought I felt it for a man to as I said yesterday I am divorced and my ex-husband nor I felt what I feel now, especially for a guy from another country, culture, etc. I uploaded a photo album of his and I facebook, on desktop computer every day, a picture with him, it crazy? it’ll get over it? I really hope to come to Romania when the tour will be announced which, if not hope to succeed in raising money and go it see. maybe I’m crazy, but are optimistic and believe in got to do my chart to see if we fit, so it’s clearly does not have cure.heeeeelp me!! I have 41 years and I act like a teenager!! on facebook, are Laura Ursu,who wants to join me. Thank you

    • Hi Laura! Nice meeting you. Age does not matter, your thoughts and feelings are most important. Do whatever makes you happy. Thank you for reading my articles, I was happy yesterday when you post your comment. It’s alright to write in your language we can read your heart, we all feel the same with Hyun Joong.
      Thank you and see you again…….have a nice day God bless.

  7. I’m greedy for his talk shows and TV shows. Since I got to know him recently I have loads of videos to watch which I think I won’t be able to finish as I watch the same video for 2 or 3 times to make sure I didn’t miss anything about him in the video hahahaha.. Being busy in reading subtitles make me to pause the video for several times to capture the scenes. Actually it seems like I’m not watching them but studying them! But I really enjoy them as long as Hyun Joong is there.
    Thank you Lazerkim for another great work.

  8. Absolutely not a self centered person.Even on radio guesting I remember reading somewhere~ where HJ became the radio host for a day to substitute the original host w/c has an overseas activity~.And throughout his hosting the radio show he never let any of his song being played but his band mates’ instead who’s also having new song releases that time.It was also said that fans are waiting outside the area and HJ went to ask them if they aren’t feeling cold.Fans replied “it’s alright~” and so~Hyunjoong says “OK~then continue to get cold~!”..haha^^.but I’f i remember it right,he send them some beverages to keep them warm..Oh~~we are really running out of adjectives to describe how good is this man,right?..have a nice day!!^^..

    • hahaha…i agree with you even the thesaurus couldn’t help me with adjectives to use in describing this guy!! You’re early so you won’t be destructed!!! Thanks for sharing!! I had that video clip and yes I read about the fans waiting for him outside the station, i think I read it from a blogger.
      hey see you again! God bless take care
