Kim Hyun Joong… [article] DESTINATION

By: LazerKim                      Kim Hyun Joong attended the press conference in Beijing China last Sunday May 5, right after he completed his Fan Meeting activities in Hongkong which resulted in a huge success, everyone now talks about China. But before we get to China, let us not forget that Hyun Joong’s next destination is Taiwan!! Hyun Joong is set to take his flight KE 691 on the 16th of May Wed.arriving Taiwan at 12:05 noon. Hyun Joong shall stay in Taiwan for five days, four nights.

The Fan Meet Concert shall be held at NTU Sports Center 3F on May 18 Friday and 19 Saturday. Actually I don’t hear much update about Taiwan. except Hyun Joong’s flight schedule. So maybe what I can share with you about Taiwan is Hyun Joong’s last visit which was in August last year to promote his first album Breakdown. And his endorsement for the cosmetic brand The Face Shop as Hyun Joong is the official representative if the product. Hyun Joong was also awarded a Platinum record status on its first week launching of the album Breakdown.

According to a report from the Taiwanese press, hundreds of fans gathered at Taoyuan International Airport on Aug.14, 2011. It was reported that when Hyun Joong finally appeared, he was welcomed by the awaiting fans passionately chanting.

Despite of the grueling rain, over 2,000 fans attended the High Five event. And even it was raining his fans back then still waited for him and participated in the activity with much enthusiasm. In the midst of the event, Hyun Joong personally requested to have a hand shake instead of High Five.

It was just a short period activity, but Hyun Joong’s fans showed so much appreciation to his visit. Hyun Joong felt sorry for not having performed for them and so he promised to come back for a concert this year. He will be fulfilling his promise as he prepared a fan meet concert on Friday May 18 and Saturday May 19.

Hyun Joong guested in one of the most reputable talk show in Taiwan entitled The Person, hosted by a famous figure Fang Nian Hua. Hyun Joong charmed the studio staffs and the show host herself stated “He’s not only charismatic but also has such a great manner, truly worthy of being a star of Korea. Kim Hyun Joong was the very first Korean artist who was ever guested in this talk show. And of course Hyun Joong was very honored.

It was in this talk show as Hyun Joong shared advise to the young aspiring artist, as he stated “Do not be like me. Continue your studies and while doing so, practice your talent on your own.” Hyun Joong also advised “to be successful, you have to work hard, you have to be the first to wake up and the last to sleep.” Well, that’s how Hyun Joong does it, during the time he was still a trainee. He has to work as a service crew in a restaurant to be able to live and pursue his training since he was not given an allowance.

These are just a few that I can remember about Hyun Joong’s visit in Taiwan last year. Now he’s set to fulfill his promise to his Taiwanese fans, that I strongly believe they are as passionate as they were to Hyun Joong until at this moment, even some non fans were trying to discourage by a malicious controversy. A genuine fan of Hyun Joong will never be carried by such tactics. There may not be much updates about Taiwan but I’m sure his fans are already preparing for his most anticipated Fan Meet Concert.

In another related topic, I finally got a clearer translation of Hyun Joong one on one interview in Beijing China last Sunday. Here’s just a few that I would like to share with you that had caught my attention. Here it goes:

Kim Hyun Joong will reveal a secret song for Beijing Fan Meet on the 10th of June

Although Kim Hyun Joong seemed to be really worn out by his tight schedules in the past few days, he rushed to the press conference immediately as he touched down in Beijing. However, once the interview started, he greeted all staffs at the scene politely, humming to songs while letting his make-up artist do the touch up, he appeared to be really cute. He was all alert during the video recording and also greeted staffs friendly in Chinese.

Q : What’s yout feeling to stage a fanmeet in China for the first time?

KHJ : I felt really happy, this is my first time doing this kind of interview here, didn’t even think that front row seats are all sold out within 20 mins. This is the best support and encouragement i received from fans. Thus, I feel that I will give my best for a perfect stage for everyone.

 Q : Why did you pick Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Shanghai?

KHJ : If I had a chance, I would actually visit more countries and cities, have as much interactions with fans as possible. Showing everyone more on stage, but due to limit and schedule , so i picked the bigger cities, Shanghai, beijing, guangzhou and chengdu. As for chengdu, I heard I would be the first korean artist to perform there, also it’s where pandas live, thus I really look forward to my visit there and really want to have a performance in Chengdu.

 Indeed Hyun Joong had very little rest from the time he arrived HongKong, upon arrival to the airport, he went straight to his press conference and unto the venue to attend to his technical rehearsals. He had only one night to prepare his stage before his performance the following day. Right after the fan meeting concert, hand shake or high five session, he proceeded to his interview as his last day in Hongkong.

It was said that the interview lasted until after 12 midnight and I wold assume he have not taken his dinner before the show. And in the morning the following day, he took his flight bound to Beijing China. Upon arrival at the airport in Beijing, proceed to the grand press conference. But as he prepared himself for the press conference there was not a single sign of fatigue in him….

Hyun Joong is just tireless, and you can see the video clip that he was still fresh and ever handsome of course during the press conference. He had a long day in Beijing since it was already at night time when he finally went back to S.Korea. Upon coming home, you know what’s next to his schedule, his preparation for Taiwan since he is set to leave tomorrow Wednesday.

Hyun Joong did mentioned that ticket sales for the front seats of the venues where the fan meet concert is to be held had been sold out in just a matter of 20 minutes. This would only goes to show how passionate his Chinese fans are. Do I see the same scenario in Japan?? They too are just as eager as other fans who has attended the fan meet in Singapore and Hongkong.

There’s at least a month preparation in China before the final event. The coverage is quite huge since there are four big cities where Hyun Joong shall be performing.  In Chungdu it was said that Hyun Joong will be the very first Korean artist who will perform in that city. Again he will mark another history being the first as always.

Last year at the same month of May Hyun Joong was a busy bee preparing for his first album Breakdown. This year the same month of May he’s been quite busy preparing for his Asia Tour Fan Meeting Concert. It’s been a year since his first album launched and now Hyun Joong had remixed his songs from the album. It feels as if it was only yesterday when he was hopping from one TV station to another in promoting his album. This year he also had gone hopping, only this time it’s hopping from one country to another!!

Hyun Joong made a promise to these countries that he’s coming back to perform. Now, he’s fulfilling that promise. Last year at the same month, Hyun Joong was filled with many uncertainties and worries about his debut as solo artist. This year Hyun Joong is full of confidence and motivation as a Hallyu Star to promote the Korean Wave worldwide! *Sigh…….. Have you thought about this?

Indeed Kim Hyun Joong has a wonderful story to tell, about his growing career life in such a speed, and snowballing of fans, anywhere his Destination takes him.
