By: LazerKim Everyday as the clock keeps ticking, and the most awaited day is just three days away from now, as Kim Hyun Joong will soon rock the stage in Singapore on May 4, 2012. Many of his international fans came rushing to get their ticket reservation to fly with Hyun Joong towards Singapore.
And yes I do feel the same way as you do, to be eagerly waiting for the day to come just to watch him from up far and wishing to be with others in Singapore to share a precious moment with Hyun Joong. This day will mark another event in Hyun Joong’s career, as he visits his fans from some parts of Asia.
I have been receiving a lot of emails from Hyun Joong’s fans sharing their over joy thought of having the chance to visit Singapore or Hong Kong and most of all the chance to meet the man in person. At the same time I have been receiving emails in expression of their sentiments over the event, since many have been wishing that Hyun Joong would be able to visit their country.
We just have to be patient considering this is the first Asian Tour Fan Meeting event for Hyun Joong and there will still be chances for him to visit other countries. This is only the beginning of his journey and in due time, Hyun Joong will be able to fulfill his dream to visit more countries to share his music to his fans. We can only wait and while doing so, let’s support him and his fans anywhere his wings take him.
I have written an article Count Down which talks about how advertising is the most important factor in every success of any event, and that advertising and promotion is the sole responsibility of the event organizer. I have deliberately written this in my humble simple knowledge about advertising because I would like the fans to be aware of who’s responsible for this and that. As I read about the organizers of Hyun Joong’s upcoming fan meeting on May 4 in Singapore and seems like these organizers are experts, specializing in concert events.
In this event Asia Tour Fan Meeting of Hyun Joong, I have clearly emphasized that this is more than just a fan meeting. Hyun Joong is preparing for 14 songs exclusively for this event, and this is more than enough for a fan meeting, that I would like everyone to take advantage of this to grab their ticket.
Since the official poster of Hyun Joong Asia Tour Fan Meeting had been released, by this time this poster should be visible in all authorized public places. Advertising schemes from the countries covered by Hyun Joong’s itinerary should be done the sooner the better. By this time, posters, fliers, streamers, the media newspapers, magazine, radio and television advertisements should be shown. Information dissemination is the most important in keeping public awareness about this upcoming event.
At the internet, this information had been posted and Hyun Joong’s fans are actively posting the advertisement. Although not all Hyun Joong’s fans have internet nor is active in it, it is still important that different advertising schemes are being materialized. May I say it again, that in any concerts or events, advertising and promotion, information dissemination is important in the success of the event. Spread the word that the Prince is coming!
In another related story, I have written an article For All Ages, that talks about Hyun Joong’s fans from different walks of life, different life status and different ages. For those who are not Kim Hyun Joong fans, are quite surprise by the fact that Hyun Joong indeed have elderly fans and mother fans. This may be the influence of Hyun Joong’s two dramas Boys Over Flower and Playful Kiss that he was able to capture the hearts of the queen of every household all over the world.
A fan sent me an email and relating her story when she bought tickets for herself and her two daughters as soon as the tickets were available. As she was buying the tickets, the sales person from the ticket outlet asked her if she’s a fan of Kim Hyun Joong. The mother fan proudly said, “yes, and I’m not only a fan, but a loyal follower of Hyun Joong.” And she was telling the sales person not to get surprised if the buyers of the tickets are from the teens up to the elders, because Kim Hyun Joong had already captured the world!!
I would think Hyun Joong is being categorized as an idol star, and people may perceive that majority of the idols fan base are dominated by teenage fans. For some magical reasons Hyun Joong is different. He was able to conquer all age range of fans and from all walks of life. From the teenagers in high school, college students, working ladies, housewives, mothers and the grandmothers or elders. Hyun Joong indeed is Only One, and I’m very proud to be not only his fan but a loyal follower of Kim Hyun Joong.
Hyun Joong won the top place as the “healing idol”!! As a music site Monkey3 conducted an on line survey with the title who is the healing idol that you think can be healed from just looking at him. A participant responded, “I get happy when I look at him , and both my eyes and heart are healed by him.”. Well, I can only speak for myself that indeed Hyun Joong is my healing idol!
Hyun Joong seems to be everything to me in the sense of keeping me company everyday! If I feel like crying over depression, I listen to his song “If You’re Like Me”, and burst out all the pains I feel. It’s like one way for me to release. If I feel lousy I just play his video clips of his 4Dness, and I just laugh it out with him.
If I’m not in the mood to write I just stare at his pictures, as if he’s trying to tell me something what I have to write!! If I’m angry specially to his critics, I listen to how he talks which is gentle and full of aspirations that somehow helps me mellow down my anger.
He is my stress reliever that heals my everyday struggle in life. Hyun Joong helped me a lot in my daily routine and inspires me to look forward for tomorrow. This is how Hyun Joong is for me, he is indeed a healing idol.
Hyun Joong has more than just a handsome face and perfect physical outlook. He has an excellent brain and a big heart. The totality of his personality is so captivating that even to those who barely know him can be magnetized by his looks. Way back in his high school days, Hyun Joong’s teacher was saying, seeing Hyun Joong walking down the street, you would know he’s not an ordinary kid. He has a kind of unique personality.
During those days Hyun Joong already had that magic charisma in him, that his school mates would seek for his friendship. When he was a kid, his mom was saying his IQ is at 140!! Would you be surprise, Hyun Joong is indeed a very smart guy.
At Hyun Joong’s documentary the Universal Music manager stated:
I have thought Korean artists are more aggressive that they aggressively capture people’s hearts. But Kim Hyun Joong belongs to the type that guards, protect, and defend. This does not mean that there isn’t any boldness or daring resolution but at the appropriate time he will reveal his presence. To have this kind of ability at such a young age is something amazing and rare.
I agree with his opinion, Hyun Joong recognizes the virtue of patience. Following Hyun Joong’s career path from the time he performed as solo artist, everything was carefully planned. If you analyse his activities last year, he took time in preparing his first album. He may not waste time in working hard to improve himself, but he just don’t grab on anything.
For him timing is very important, it’s just like saying, slowly but surely. And as his clock alarmed, he stepped in and Hyun Joong just made an explosive fanfare that was beyond his expectation, unstoppable chain of success was what he gained from his hard work.
Kim Hyun Joong stated: For me, I also have a dream. Because a great dream drives me to become a better me.
World star, universal star, Kim Hyun Joong’s dream keeps getting bigger. That bigger dream is to become a Kpop star that captivate the world that made him who he is. Kim Hyun Joong is coming your way and he’ll be there with you…… Spread the Word…….
