By: LazerKim Kim Hyun Joong has been staying in Japan for over two weeks now and I think among all the days, twitter is bit quiet yesterday. Later in the evening yesterday the news broke that there’s a typhoon coming in to Korea. I just hope this won’t bring any bad news that would bring in national calamity. Yesterday Kim Hyun Joong ended up his shooting for City Conquest, still at Edo Wonderland in heavy rain!! It was said that Hyun Joong played around with the other actors at the set. He played chasing after the other actors who portrayed ninjas under the heavy rainfall!! There goes the playful Hyun Joong, and I’m so glad he getting closer to other cast of the drama.
It feels great to be reading news that Hyun Joong is enjoying his filming. We all know how stressful and tiring this job is but I think it’s enough for me to know he’s happy wherever he is. Other cast of this drama commented how handsome Hyun Joong is but they noticed that his face is becoming smaller, which means he’s losing weight. As I read about this from somewhere I was reminded when Hyun Joong was doing BOF, that at the midst of filming and airing he was losing weight which was quite obvious towards the last episode of the drama.
Then yesterday I knew from one of the fan who is a medical staff that it’s not good to be losing 7% of Hyun Joong fat, she said it’s not normal. Oh I just hope he doesn’t overdo the diet program the gym ect. Can’t he just eat as normal as he can anyway he’ll burn those fats since he’s working. And then I read again about his schedule that he has an event on Aug. 10 for Jinger Gaien Fireworks Festival in Tokyo. It was said the following month he’ll divide his time between filming commitment and live performances.
What can we do, this is his job and the guy is so hard headed!! We can just watch over him from up far, then maybe we can share a little prayer for Hyun Joong’s health. I think this the least we can do, and I do understand Hyun Joong has many mother fans and grandmas who are as protective of course. It can not be helped for them to be worried about Hyun Joong like their own son and grandson, knowing how Hyun Joong works, can really be worrying. This filming will take months before it’s done. It seems to me that this drama shall be filmed first before finally airing. At least this is a bit less stressful, I hope!
Yesterday it was said that a group of primary students came to visit the Edo Wonderland while Hyun Joong was on the set filming. The teacher who was guiding told the students that Kim Hyun Joong was an AEON CF model and she said one of the mom of her student is an avid fan of Kim Hyun Joong!! I was smiling to myself while reading this update, now even teachers can teach her students about Kim Hyun Joong! Well I’m just too proud that this guy is such a model with an excellent reputation that anyone can be proud talking about him.
Quite recently I have mentioned that the local government officials of Tochigi Ken hosted a welcome presentation for Hyun Joong, the cast and the production management of this drama City Conquest. I have also mentioned that Hyun Joong shall be indirectly promoting the country Japan since a part of the drama was taken from Japan, knowing this drama shall be aired in the different countries give a tourist attraction for Japan. I find this educational as well, it doesn’t only gives interest about Hyun Joong as an actor, but it also gives the viewers a chance to know even a little about the Japanese culture and its natural beauty and tradition.
One of my favorite drama is the Korean historic genre, I careless whoever the actors are in the drama for as long I can learn something about the Korean olden days and its history. Most of these dramas are true to life stories of their heroes that I really find this interest and educational. I admire Korea for preserving their historic palaces which are indeed memorable to every Korean citizen. The idea of doing dramas out of their own history is such a brilliant idea to bring these dramas outside their country can educate the other countries about their tradition, culture and the beauty of nature in S.Korea.
If I’m going to visit S.Korea, I make sure it’s not only Hyun Joong whom I’m going to see but also his country. I would love to see the palaces where the dramas that I have watched was filmed and it’s gonna be a big bonus for me if I can have the chance to watch Hyun Joong doing one of the historic genre as a hero of course and I’m so curious to see him in traditional costumes as a King or Prince!! Seeing his hair in top knot, I can just imagine how handsome he would look riding in a horse like a knight in a shining armor!!
But since many actors have been doing this historic genre, Hyun Joong turn on to the modern days of history, but not in Korea. He’ll be doing this in many other countries. The site where Hyun Joong is currently filming the Nikko Edo Wonderland is also a historic location as Japan preserve the place of history. It’s even interesting as I have seen some photos of the location that Japanese casts are in their traditional Kimono. Well we have also seen Hyun Joong wearing it that made it even interesting! In short the set up is in the olden days in Japan, and therefore we shall be learning some Japanese tradition, culture and its beauty brought by its nature.
I think this is very educational since the drama shall not only focus on Japan but some other countries as well. You might be wondering as to why does a Korean star promote other countries. Well, the Hollywood stars does this too. The eye catch here is of course Kim Hyun Joong since he is becoming a globally popular and this popularity can be a tool in promoting tourism of any country he may visit.
His fans are scattered all over the world, the idea here is while viewing the drama, while Kim Hyun Joong portrays his character, it somehow adds zest having different scenes from other countries, specially on historic tourist spots and its natural beauty can be shown. A bit of tradition too can be educational to his teenage student fans and for any of us who have not been to these places where Hyun Joong shall be filming City Conquest.
It was said that City Conquest shall have 20 episodes and the currently shooting shall be shown in episodes 6 and 7 of the drama. Well Hyun Joong has still has a long way to go filming this drama since it has just started. It was said that filming at Edo Wonderland is gonna be until the 27th of this month. And I think this is not the only location in Japan that filming shall be scheduled. Not to mention other countries location filming, so as expected Hyun Joong shall be doing a lot of traveling for this drama.
It will be a good experience for Hyun Joong to have the chance of traveling and of course it can also be a chance of meeting his fans from other countries he have not been. Again it’s his health that we worry about and I think this is just natural for us fans since we do care for him quite a lot. As I have said earlier we can only watch over him from up far and there is nothing else we can, but maybe our prayers can help a lot. The nearest to Hyun Joong is God, then maybe we can ask Him to take care of Hyun Joong for us, since we’re all helpless.
May I then suggest if we can share each other’s prayer, regardless of what religion we belong it doesn’t matter at all, I still believe we have the same one God. Then maybe we can include Hyun Joong in our prayers for his health and safety. I’m sure we always pray for our family and I hope it’s not too much to ask if we can include Hyun Joong as one of our family member in our prayer. This is gonna be a huge help for Hyun Joong, since we international fans are far from him and maybe our prayers can reach out for God to take care of Hyun Joong in our behalf.
At the same time since Hyun Joong is currently in Japan, then his Japanese fans can take care of him too. I do appreciate that some of his fans from Japan can somehow share with updates, then I’m sure some fans do visit him in his location filming site from time to time. Maybe for me for as long as we can hear something even a bit about Hyun Joong on how he is coping up on his daily activities then we can be rest assure he’s well and doing fine.
I’m still hoping he would eat properly and on the proper time, and how I wish he could forget about the diet program. I don’t think it would look good if he lose weight further than he already has. He really has to take good care of himself specially in doing this drama that he would be doing a lot of traveling. And you know, it’s different if you’re in another country specially having to eat unfamiliar food. Although Hyun Joong has certain Japanese cuisine that he truly loves, but I wonder if he still eats his favorite with all that diet program he’s having!!
Doing drama is a part of Kim Hyun Joong’s journey to his career ladder being an actor. As he travels from one place to another, we as fans follow him through our prayers for his health and safety until he accomplish. The journey doesn’t ends there, we start supporting what we have been anticipating from Hyun Joong as an actor, which is his come back drama City Conquest.
Hyun Joong, took off by his wings as an actor. His fans follow wherever his fate takes him as we shall protect and support. This will be our next journey following the Traveling Star, Kim Hyun Joong…
