By: LazerKim Kim Hyun Joong completed his shooting yesterday at Utzunomia, capital city of Tochigi Ken. It was said he ended the day’s filming eating yakitori or chicken bar B que as he was spotted at one yakitori shop in Utzunomia!! There was a crowd of spectators along the facade of the shopping mall after knowing that Hyun Joong was inside the yakitori shop and I can only assume there were some fans within the area!
As of this morning, at the twitter it was said that there were changes about his schedule that Hyun Joong is going back home to Korea sooner than the original schedule on 27th. He’s coming home tomorrow 21st. Oh I’m glad about this news, instead of going to Bangkok from Japan which I can imagine a lot more stressful. Now with this schedule at least he can still have ample time to prepare for his fan meeting concert in Bangkok.
Then he is scheduled to have his press con in Bangkok on the 28th before the fan meeting concert on the 29th. Hyun Joong still has commitment with the 4th of Aug. for the Asia Song festival. Anyway, I’ll iron out details by tomorrow’s article, since I have just read this news from twitter, so we’ll see with the official news. This is all for time being on updates.
I have been writing a lot about this drama City Conquest and I think I have failed to mention the other casts of the drama and its director. So here it goes:
Directed By: Yang Yoon Ho
Written By: Hwang Joo-Ha
Kim Hyun Joong – Lead star as Baek Mir
Jeong Yoo Mi – Leading lady
Nam Goong Min
Kim Seung Woo
kim Hee Won
This is just how far I can go as I have read names of the cast. I’m not familiar with the director though, but he directed Iris, which I have watched, then Jeong Yoo Min whom I have watched at Dong Yi, Kim Seung Woo whom I have watched at Hotelier. I don’t mean to be mean but I would not care so much as to who the other cast in this drama, meaning it’s alright with me whoever works with Kim Hyun Joong, I would accept and support for as long as Hyun Joong is in the drama as lead or not I will still watch.
Whenever I watch Korean drama, if I buy DVDs I always consider the plot and not so much with the actors actually. This is the only time that I would choose the other way around. For as long as Hyun Joong is in the drama I will buy the DVD or watch him on-line, until such time the drama will be aired in my country.
I have read from the insect camp, that it appears director and other casts of City Conquest now are being criticized!! As I have mentioned in my recent article, the insects are just so busy trying to destroy City Conquest. Now it appears to me if they can not destroy Hyun Joong then they would try to do so with the others who are working for this drama!! I can only scratch my head and say to myself, you can never please everybody!! Well, I won’t try to insist my opinion to others, it’s just that anything you read in this blog will always be Kim Hyun Joong.
And because I’m an avid fan, naturally I would defend him no matter what, specially if Hyun Joong is already been insulted by bashful negative comments. That I would not allow without defense. And I would be surprised if a fan could not defend her idol specially if the idol has not done anything wrong. BOF was badly criticized but I was just wondering, they too watched the drama!!
It’s just as simple as if you do not like the drama then don’t watch it!! Why else would you watch if the actor who was performing in that drama is not your preference. Without them realizing that the most person they dislike even won high ratings because they watched!! Then criticize, so I don’t really see the logic!! Oh well we should ignore those in the first place, I have already learned my lesson!!
May I just raise my hat up to Kim Hyun Joong fans, we may have a different opinion in some other areas but we get to be united in ONLY ONE Kim Hyun Joong. We do share our opinion that others may or may not agree, but stating those opinion in the professional way does matter. Then not taking it personally is one thing I admire. This is what I have seen in this blog during my absence, there may be discussions but everyone stayed calm and proper in stating their points and I’m so thankful and proud of being Kim Hyun Joong fan, because my co-fans are as respectable as ever.
There was a new fan who happen to have read some discussions and she herself was impressed on how other fans deals with some negatives that in the end we still talk. We’re like family here, and this is what I would like this space to be. Well, in a family, it’s so natural to have indifference, it’s simply because we have individual opinion but at the end of the day we still get to hug each other. And I think this is what family is all about. No matter what we’re still family in one Kim Hyun Joong.
Other readers of this blog are not fans, but they pretend to be specially not stating their user name and saying they are fans but actually they are not. I know who’s who, but still they are welcome to read my blog for as long as none of them would leave me a bashful insulting or not so good language in negative comments which I apologize that I have to delete the comment. Simply because majority of my readers are elders and professionals. Then I got some minors who are regular readers too. We noonas I think should site a good example to the minors by not using bad words.
I do love reading opinion and views from other fans and I do learn from them too. And do you know that a lot of other fans became close to me through this blog and from there other fans have met in this blog also became friends among themselves. I brought them to twitter and from there they also find other fans and became friends. There’s now that connection among them through this blog and I’m happy having you around. Then from here on, can grow we multiply as we welcome new fans around and who knows some insects might just turn to be one of us. You can never tell, nothing is impossible nowadays.
I never intended to close doors to anyone even the haters. They hate simply because they barely know the guy and since we are the ones who knows him better, then maybe it would be better to let them know as to who he is, a person who does not deserve harmful or bashful negatives. If we can’t convince them, although I do not intend to go that far, then so be it. They will remain insects to us.
Quite recently during the time Hyun Joong launched Heat and he was on his busiest days of promoting, I happen to have read a blog from Yamapi fan. I was quite surprised that among the blogs I have read I think the fans from Yamapi blog are I would say courteous. In such a way, the fans were worried about Yamapi’s single over Hyun Joong’s Heat, but none of the fans were even bashful about Hyun Joong.
Then I came to know that the young ones from yamapi’s camp are also admirers of Hyun Joong. I somehow felt deeply for the fans though since I came to know Love Chase was Yamapi’s first single and that Hyun Joong and Yamapi have similar history in their careers, since one of Hyun Joong’s fans told me Yamapi’s story.
Yamapi was said to have similarities with Hyun Joong since both belongs to idol group before they have decided to go solo. I also found out that Yamapi’s single was important to him, which I understand being his first. A full album was said to be released after his first single. Then to Yamapi’s fans, do support your idol’s album, if he was not able to make it on his first single, then I do hope he’ll be able to do so on his full album. Just the same with Kim Hyun Joong, his debut Kiss Kiss may not be at No.1 at Oricon in January but the album made it to gold record status.
I don’t think I would consider Yamapi as Hyun Joong’s competitor, it just happen that they both had released their singles at the same time. Actually Hyun Joong does not have a competitor, well only one who tried playing dirty tricks on him during one poll voting. Still Kim Hyun Joong is way beyond comparable in so many aspects being a star. Just my opinion. Be it a singer or actor Kim Hyun Joong will remain to be my ONLY ONE, and shall be supporting to the best I can and to protect him with all my strength.
In all honesty, before I decided to write for Kim Hyun Joong, it took me some months of researching about the guy, simply because I do not want to deceive those who would read my articles. Neither would I write an imaginary person out of him, I have accepted Kim Hyun Joong for who he is in reality and that is what you read in my articles. The more I get to know him better the more it pushed me to write. I was never wrong about my decision.
My apology if I may not seem to attach Hyun Joong from other celeb as partner in his personal relationship. As I have said in my other article, not unless Hyun Joong faces the camera and confess about it, which I believe he already had, having one love of his life, then I’ll just take it from there. Still his personal privacy remains his as I respect. I’m just not fond of pairing him up with others.
I think Hyun Joong have created a family within the Alien world, since there’s grandma fans, mother fans, the big sisters, young teenage sisters, the minors and probably one of these days we’ll be growing even with the male fans!! Well I wouldn’t be surprised since I have spotted a lot of male fans from his recent concerts in Saitama. We can only welcome them as well, and hopefully they can identify themselves as Hyun Joong fans too. I don’t see anything wrong with that.
As Kim Hyun Joong build this world with us, we unite in our support and love for him with all our sincerity. As we share the same love for each other as one big ALIEN FAMILY!!
