By: LazerKim Kim Hyun Joong apparently is back to his cocoon, but not because he’s out of our sight I don’t believe he’s resting or in a grand holiday! If so, I would be pleased since he’s been running from one airport lobby to another these past months! I can only speculate he’s within the zone of City Conquest! Are we starting to get gloomy missing Hyun Joong after the grand finale he performed at the Hanabi Festival last Friday 10th of August?
Oh don’t be, Hyun Joong can just appear any time the least we expect, he had done that recently that everyone was caught unaware he’s already at the airport to catch his flight! So keep yourself awake or you’ll miss seeing him back in action!! I guess I have to say this to myself since I bring you whatever is going on around!! What we can do now while he’s busy probably still with City Conquest, maybe we can reminisce the days he’s been rocking the stage of Saitama Arena or whatever that remains memorable to us these past days.
Kim Hyun Joong was awarded as the Best Artist at the Asian Music Festival in August 4,2012. This is another honor that every single fan of Kim Hyun Joong can be proud of. This is another award that Hyun Joong bagged in for this year 2012. It’s already past mid-year, and soon the year would end and how time fly so fast just as fast Hyun Joong kept accomplishing a lot of successful projects that is beyond expectation.
In Japan alone, Hyun Joong started this year with a big bomb if you still remember his album debut Kiss Kiss and his first concert this year at Yokohama Arena attended by some 20,000 fans. Followed by his second album launching for mid-year Heat and a successful concert at Saitama Arena attended by 60,000 fan!! From this scale we can see his popularity rate escalates in abrupt! If you are following Kim Hyun Joong, you’ll always be in a run after him in the series of successful activities he has, then you have to run fast!! I wonder now, how many fans are there addicted to Kim Hyun Joong?
Yesterday I had the chance to re-watched a video clip of Star Date interview with Hyun Joong held in Japan. I think I have written about it in one of my articles but I missed a part when Hyun Joong was asked this question, “What do you remember about your fans?” Hyun Joong responded as, “I got a letter from a fan saying, Hyun Joong I love you more than my husband! I was so shocked, she should not love me that much.”
Allow me to react on Hyun Joong’s statement. I honestly think Hyun Joong doesn’t have the least idea what we truly feels about him!! I wonder now, how many fans shares the same opinion as the fan who wrote to Hyun Joong saying she loves Hyun Joong more than her husband? It may sounds like a joke but granting it’s not a joke, is this possible? Well, for unhappily married wife this can be possible! But I have spoken to many happily married wives who are fans of Hyun Joong and they do find time to be with Hyun Joong, meaning attend to fan meeting and concerts not to mention hitting the internet for daily updates.
I can only speak for myself, but I think some of you may feel the same way as I do, although it may be in different situation. I am not in a committed relationship with anyone at this time or even the time I was still researching about Hyun Joong. And so this gives me 100% focus on him and committed to Hyun Joong as a fan writer.
I may be committed with my current work that I ought to do as a responsible business woman but I bring Hyun Joong with me in my work, my note pad and pen to write about him while I’m at the construction site!! When I get home, I hit the internet, and type what I wrote in my notepad. Then start looking for updates, note it down so I can bring it with me at work, for reference in writing my article. After which, I check on my emails coming from other fans and from my comment box, and reply. I do this everyday of my life, in short Hyun Joong has been occupying my thoughts most hours of the day even I’m working!
Hyun Joong has quite a number of noona fans who have boyfriends, husbands and mother fans too, but they do find time at the internet in tracking down all about Hyun Joong. I actually have written an article with the title Partners which have been sitting in my file for quite sometime now but I’ll probably post it if there’s no updates to talk about. I know a mother fan who’s been very active in posting updates. She’s been taking care of her ailing husband and she’s saying that Hyun Joong is her stress reliever which I believe so as most of us does. She looks up at Hyun Joong as her real son, and I bet you she’ll kill an insect whoever criticize Hyun Joong!!
A lot of my teenage readers said that Hyun Joong is their inspiration in their studies. I remember one student fan was saying, “if only Kim Hyun Joong would be asked in my exams, then I would surely pass the test!!” Then I replied back to her and told her, if I were your teacher I would surely ask questions about Hyun Joong and would surely give her excellent grades!! Kidding aside, Hyun Joong is truly a role model to the young ones in terms of his experience during his high school days of struggle. The lesson learned out of Hyun Joong’s experience to run away from home and coming back home realizing what hard life had taught Hyun Joong.
I asked one mother fan, how does she cope up with taking care of her family at the same time can still find ways to read about Hyun Joong at the internet until wee hours at night. And she said, it’s better to be home with her lappy than being outside the house. Which I definitely agree. Being a wife and a mother is itself more than a career. I would think being single can have more time with Hyun Joong, but I was wrong because even mother fans can equally have quality time with Hyun Joong, like attending to his fan meeting or concerts not to mention the daily routine of hitting the internet for Hyun Joong’s updates.
What made a fan say she loves Hyun Joong more than her husband? I honestly can not answer for her or for fans who shares the same opinion. We may have different opinion on how we see or feel about Hyun Joong but I’m pretty sure we share the same love for Hyun Joong as a fan. Quite a number of mother fans were able to follow Hyun Joong’s Asia Tour and reading from their experience I can feel the same degree of love for him. They too have gone out of their way as a fan to meet Hyun Joong in person.
Hyun Joong was quite surprised by a fan saying she loves him more than her husband! I would think the fan was just being honest, maybe in a way that Hyun Joong became her stress reliever just like anyone of us. As for me, I feel contented and complete every time I write about Hyun Joong, every time I watch him in his dramas and concert. The further I go I became addicted to him until such time knowing him became the best part of my life.
Will it be the same if I happen to have a partner or if I’m in a committed relationship? I do not have an answer to that, but I would say I’m so glad I’m not!! Simply because I do not want to divide my time with Hyun Joong and whoever. Just like the saying said, be where you could be happy, and I’m happy with what I’m doing, I can bring Hyun Joong with me in my work and can still be productive within the scope of my responsibility.
I truly admire the wives and mother fans of Hyun Joong that no matter how busy and stressful being a wife and a mother, they still find time to be with Hyun Joong everyday. Or maybe the addiction to Hyun Joong calls for daily dosage to keep them going. That goes for me too, my day isn’t complete without the thoughts of Hyun Joong. My question now is, is this normal to any fans of other stars? I’m so curious, as I have said in the past, I have a list of favorite stars but it never occur to me to be this way as I do to Hyun Joong.
I remember when I was just starting to write, I was trying to encourage a non-fan blogger who seem to me is a critic but couldn’t criticize Hyun Joong for obvious reason that she had witnessed how Hyun Joong is in person. Then she said she’d rather not get involve in Kim Hyun Joong as a fan. Back then I couldn’t understand why she said that. Only when I started to get deeper into knowing Hyun Joong that I understand.
Kim Hyun Joong is a person whom I can not let go or get over with. Until now that blogger stayed as a critic of Kpop, but until now she never criticize Hyun Joong. It was from her that I learned as she said, you may criticize Kim Hyun Joong but feel sorry after doing so.She said Hyun Joong is so nice as person to deserve some criticism. Another veteran fan said, once you get into the world of Kim Hyun Joong, you’ll find it hard to get out of it. I realize that’s true when I got stuck up in the real world for nine days without internet!!
Be where you could be happy, for me whether being an avid fan of Hyun Joong is normal or not in other idol’s fandom, I’m just happy where Hyun Joong is. Other mother fans find their family to be very supportive to them in being a die hard fan of Kim Hyun Joong, that I can visualize them to be a happy mother and a fan to die for Hyun Joong!! And some who have daughters are also fan of Hyun Joong. Now I wonder if he knows about this fact, that an entire family can be his fan. This is not impossible at all as I can read from his mother fans!!
I find Hyun Joong to be my comfort zone from the real world. To listen to his music, to watch his video clips, to read his daily updates, to defend him from his critics which I find it challenging, to read about his accomplishments, and to feel his love for his fans is such a soft cushion whenever I think about it. And maybe he’s a comfort zone as others think of him as a cure, stress reliever, and inspiration for many people. What do I like about Kim Hyun Joong, is everything about him as a person for real, particularly his honesty and sincerity that makes him a complete person.
Kim Hyun Joong is not a saint to be perfect, he’s a pain in the nose for being hard headed! But he’s gentle air that one can breath freely and a total comfort zone being at his side.
