In the past weeks Kim Hyun Joong has been attending to his press conference and one on one interviews with the media in every stop he made during his Asia Tour Fan Meeting Concert. Here’s one of those one on one interview from Singapore after his press conference, questions from which has not been asked during his other interviews from other countries he had been. Here it goes..
Kim Hyun Joong Exclusive Interview Singapore
Question 1.) What kind of music is considered Kim Hyun Joong’s style of music? What do you want to express in your music?
KHJ: I can’t say what my music style is exactly what I’m doing can be a Kim Hyun Joong music. In the future I would like to do different kind of music to show everyone what is Kim Hyun Joong’s style.
Question 2.) Which Hollywood movie has left a good impression on you, and which Hollywood actor do you like?
KHJ: I have watched many Hollywood movies since I was young. There are many Hollywood actors whom I like, among the Hollywood movies I find Titanic very interesting and I’ve watched block buster like transformer and Avatar. It will be good if I have the chance to advance into Hollywood, but for now I would like to spend more time with my fans in Asia. So I think advancing into Hollywood will be something in the future.
Question 3.) Why do you want to be reincarnated as a lion in your life? What’s your fascination with lion?
KHJ: Because I want to work hard and live without regrets in my life, so in my next life, I would want to be reincarnated as a lion, take afternoon naps and when I like. Yes something like that. And I won’t get eaten up by others.
Question 4.) If you could be a character in any comic book you have read, who would you be and why??
KHJ: My favorite comic book is “One Piece”a story of a boy who wants to become the pirate king. There’s a sword man character in the comic called Zoro. I think we’re very much similar in character. If this comic book is made into movie or drama in the future, I would like to take this role.
A while ago I was reviewing video clips from Hyun Joong’s recent Fan Meeting Concert, and it’s amazing that Hyun Joong’s fans do sing his songs together with him and they all know the lyrics which is in Korean. One of his fans said she has to memorize his songs so that she can sing with him when she gets the chance to attend Hyun Joong’s concert.
I would say Hyun Joong has different style of music that is well accepted and appreciated by anyone upon listening to his sweet voice. Every song Hyun Joong sings has different style, melody, tone and tempo that suits his voice range. He creates music suitable for any age range that creates variation, and the best thing of all is that, his fans can easily follow the song lyric even it’s in Korean and its melody. One can never get tired of listening to his music because each song is different from one another.
Whenever Hyun Joong steps on that stage that no matter how huge his audience is, he is totally in control and can touch the hearts of his fans no matter how far the bleacher of the stadium is. All by himself he performs as a concert king as he brings his music to the entire Asia and beyond, expressed by Hyun Joong through his heart and soul. That is Kim Hyun Joong’s style of music.
This one is really funny as Hyun Joong was asked why he wants to be a lion if ever he’ll be incarnated!! Hyun Joong’s sleepy head surfaced as he said lion can sleep whenever he wants to!!! I can connect this sleepy head lion with the main character of his favorite comic book One Piece because the character is also a sleepy head!! Hyun Joong mentioned that the character has a similarity to his true self in reality. Since the character also loves drinking like himself besides being a sleepy head!!
I would love to see Hyun Joong portray the character Zoro who’s a bit weird and carefree who would rather sleeps than get involve in any war or trouble!! Zoro would only wake up when the war is done and over with!! As to how and why he ended up to be a skillful sword man is one thing I still have to research further. Since I just read the synopsis in passing!! As I was reading the synopsis of One Piece from the comic book, I find it interesting and it’s like a comedy story imagining Zorro as a clumsy easy-going fellow!!
I can imagine Hyun Joong in that character and surely he’ll be the most handsome Pirate King ever created!! If ever a writer would create a drama out of this comic book story, and giving the role of Zorro to Hyun Joong can bring something new to TV viewers. On the part of Hyun Joong, it will be a lot of work to learn martial arts, sword handing, and skillful horse back riding.
It’s a lot of challenge for Hyun Joong but worthwhile piece of work and a good chance to learn a lot being an action star. I would be looking for this and I wish this dream drama of Hyun Joong would come true.
He has been talking about this for sometimes and I wish he could have the chance to create a Pirate King!! Well, a pirate is perceive to be a thief, but in the comic book One Piece, being a pirate became the hero of the poor in defending their human rights from the elite and the wealthy.
Yes. the main character is like Robin Hood Prince of the Woods, who was actually a thief of the rich and the arrogant, as a way of revenge and help the poor and helpless, something to that effect. Although Robin Hood portrayed by Kevin Costner was actually a son of a wealthy man who was murdered out of greed and jealousy. I can imagine how handsome Hyun Joong could be portraying such similar role and a challenging one!
For us fans, we have our own personal preference on how we want to see Hyun Joong on his dramas and I think this is natural. Well I can only speak for myself, I would really love to see Hyun Joong doing a historical genre which is my favorite type of Korean drama.
I would love to see Hyun Joong with his hair in top knot in a Prince costume riding a horse like a knight in shining armor, a hero of the less fortunate or the weaker ones like Robin Hood!! Sigh….. My Prince charming would surely bring your knees melting like chocolate!!
Lately Hyun Joong has been reserving ample time to hit the gym everyday, even he was on his Asian Tour, he gives the two hours for the gym with his Trainor. He has been on strict diet low-fat, low salt, less sugar diet and eating more fruits, veggies and just bread.
Now if you noticed his last public appearance last Sunday as he performed for fan meet sponsored by Lotte Duty Free Shop, he started showing sexy firm muscles which is beginning to surface, as you can see from his photos in this article. Hyun Joong is developing more of his manly side that brings out even a more irresistable appeal which is quite getting obvious now.
Those firm muscles are developing in a natural way and not through fast acting steroid. Because Hyun Joong has been actively on body built training even before during his SS501 days. And came up to a more rigid training in the gym before he came out in black short hair in Breakdown. And this time we will see him on his up coming drama City Conquest. Hyun Joong will have a full two months rigid training in preparation before he steps in to his drama stage, which is very much anticipated by his fans even by the media.
It takes more opportunities in having drama project that can only have the chance for Hyun Joong to develop his acting skills. And he is right as he mentioned in his other interviews that he would like to have different characters and image on the different drama projects he has to work on in the future.
With his professional working attitude, and being a hard worker, he can easily attain the development he wants to achieve. As I have mentioned earlier, we may have a personal preference as to how we want to see Hyun Joong on the screen, but at the end of the day, it’s still Hyun Joong’s choice whichever character or image he wants to work on.
But for the mean while, as we wait for the most anticipated City Conquest which he’ll start working right after his concert in Japan. We are very lucky fans that our idol is a very talented artist that we have a lot to look forward for.
Hyun Joong will soon be leaving for China tomorrow, taking the late night flight OZ323 Airbus 321 Asiana Airline departing Incheon Airport at 20:15 and arriving Chengdu at 23:15. Hyun Joong will be starting his China tour in Cheng du China for his Fan Meeting Concert.
His Chinese fans has been preparing for this event and filled with eagerness to see Hyun Joong perform on their stage and to have experience the high five session, which I have read will be set on different schedule unlike the once he already did in other counties.
As the count down begins the more eagerness starts to build up in every Chinese fans and though it he will arriving China at late night, there’s a possibility he will be escorted at the VIP exit. So I think I wouldn’t be expecting much photos taken from the airport of Chengdu not unless clever fans can sneak through the back door!!
And so I’m done with my love pill, as one of Hyun Joong calls her daily dosage! As Hyun Joong soar up to his heights of popularity, he’ll continue with his dreams, a dream that every fan has in her heart to see him as an actor, since there’s a great demand for him to do dramas. And one of his dream drama is in the character of a Pirate King. I never doubt his capability in reaching for his dreams…..
With his fans as his inspiration, Kim Hyun Joong can achieve anything in his hands as we have witnessed his chain of success he had achieved and will be achieving…
