By LazerKim: “What’s up Kim Hyun Joong?” Oh how I wish we can personally ask him these questions probably coming from his young fans! “Are you getting enough sleep after work?” like this question maybe from his mother fans. “Have been eating regularly at the right time?” question from grandma fans! “Have you been enjoying your filming for City Conquest and how’s are you getting along with your co-actors?” this one from his elder sister fans! How I wish we have some answers to these questions!! As for me I would ask does KE and the production management doing their job in protecting and taking care of you? This I’m sure they do, Kim Hyun Joong is their precious gem!
I got the translation of Hyun Joong’s interview in Thailand and one in Russia. But I’ll take this one at a time. I’ll start with his interview in Thailand that I would like to share with you for those who have not read it yet here it goes:

Q1. : And we miss you too Hyun Joong ^^ what did you prepare for Thai fans??

Hyun Joong: It may sound very funny however due to my busy schedule I sometimes want to rest or having fun jus like a lion. I feel that a lion does live very freely.
Q 4. : If you were a superhero, what type of a superhero you woud want to be and what special power you’d want to have.
Hyun Joong: I dont want to be a superhero. if i can choose, I would ask for more time to do my concert and to spend more time with my fans.
Q 5. : Anything you want to say to your fans??
Hyun Joong: For my previous dramas, BOF & Playful Kiss, I had a rather cute character and very quiet but for City Conquest, I have to change my character to be a stronger person since there are many action scenes. Fans will see a different side of me.
For my fans watching Sat Zone, I hope you will love me more and more (Sure we will keke) I will return you love by coming to Thaiand every year. And i will practise harder and come back with a better album and better drama. Thank you very much.

Talking about Hyun Joong’s sexiness at question no.2, Hyun Joong is being modest as always, but of course the people who sees him should be the ones to be asked this question. Hyun Joong aah, I’m telling you, for me, you’re the sexiest man alive!! What does a man takes to be said he is sexy. I would say not all handsome men can be sexy. There are men who are not so handsome but with a strong sex appeal.
If we base sexiness in the physical aspect of a man, I think a well developed firm muscle, the 6 packs abs, broad shoulders, curvy muscle firmed arms and tall height as in 5’9 and above is such an ideal figure for men. I hope I’m right but this is an ideal type of defining sexiness in men, which Hyun Joong has it specially at this time that he had developed a well proportioned body figure. I think qualifying sexiness depends on our individual choice on how we see in men.
As I mentioned earlier, not all handsome men can be sexy or has that sex appeal. Hyun Joong I would has a very strong sex appeal, with almost perfect body structure and handsome face. For me what makes Hyun Joong sexy aside from his physique, is the way he walk, the way he dress up and the way his eyes look. Because even back then when he was young still with his group, he already has that sexiness. His body muscles may be pre-matured as yet but he already has that appeal.
May I just share with you another comment from my box that caught my attention again:
Wow, do guys change their looks this often in K-pop or is it just him?” I also wondered if the changes were management dictated or else if KHJ had full control of how he wanted his look to be or if he solicited advice from a stylist or consultant on what type of haircut/haircolor or clothing style he could try.
Honestly, I find the Kpop idols of course including Hyun Joong, are quite fashionable, in the way they dressed up, accessorize according to their outfit and hairstyle. I think this is another attraction on them being stars. I’m not so familiar with other Korean stars but I think among them it’s Hyun Joong consistently change from time to time. There are agents who groom their artists not only in talents but also grooming from head to toes. But in case of Hyun Joong he is on his own creating his own image as well as his music. He definitely has a stylist but everything is being decided by him even in costumes that wears for his shows.
Off cam, well we can see from his photos what type of dresser he is. I think he has a simply taste and whatever is comfortable to him, that is what he wears every time off cam. Like his training and rehearsal outfit, he has the same thing and almost the same color. He’ll get himself a bunch of those outfits and stick to it. Hyun Joong is fond of wearing tight jeans and loose tops, sneaker or boots, hats and dark shades, adding up a complete accessories, from ear pierce, necklace, bracelet, watch and ring. As we all know his favorite color is black or gray and simple earth color depending on the season.
Hyun Joong is also fond of V neckline cut of shirt that reveals his firm cleavage that even looks sexy on him. Oh my now I’m talking about men’s fashion!! But for me how men dressed up is such an appealing factor, other than his body built and his handsome face. Hyun Joong has a good taste in terms clothes he wears, he knows exactly what suits him and carry it perfectly that anything he wears just looks perfect for him.
Hyun Joong mentioned he wants to be a lion!! The big sleepy cat, that’s Hyun joong who can just dose off anywhere!! I think this trait haven’t changed in him, the sleepy head is just so good sleeper!! I would understand this in his young age but he gets matured it basically change. At the filming of City Conquest, the scene in a gondola honeymoon, it was said he dose off waiting for the production staffs to get the set done!! Then during his photo session, there was a shot of Hyun Joong sleeping in a couch, he doze off!! I think every time there’s a good place he lay down he instantly drop to sleep!! That’s him!!
If Hyun Joong is being a superhero he wants more concerts and have more time with his fans, well that’s saying coming straight from his lips!! He is a stage addict!! It’s not only his fans who are addicted to him, even Hyun Joong is addicted to performing on stage too!. Oh I get reminded of my article Artist by Heart, as I mentioned in that article an artist by heart, after every successful show there’s only one thing an artist would like to do, and that is to go back to that stage and perform again. And it’s very true for Hyun Joong his fans cheers and scream is just enough to pay off his effort at the studio.
An artist by heart wouldn’t mind whether he’s being paid or not for as long as he gets on that stage to perform and being applauded is enough and nothing else matter. This is very true to Hyun Joong too, if you remember his Yokohama concert profit share he donated it to charity for the orphanage. And may I just say, the hi five, and handshake as Hyun Joong’s fan meeting concert Asia Tour including that in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, it’s his idea, it’s his call.
Before he started the fan meet series, the plan was to accommodate as much as a hundred fans, but Hyun Joong changed it to have a handshake to every fan who attended the event with an average of 3,000 fans per concert. Except in China which was done in selective ticket draw for a thousand fans. Not to mention the unforgettable Odaiba Tokyo handshake session in one rainy day!! Then the street dance he performed which was truly enjoyed by anyone who was there by accident! Others had interpreted this gesture as promotional scheme but actually Hyun Joong was doing it to get closer to his fans and to thank them for their support.
Who wouldn’t fall for this superhero, if Hyun Joong can only fly like superman maybe he should have done so to visit all his fans in any part of the world as easy as just flying like a superhero!! Oh my mind is running wild again, what if Hyun Joong take his fans in an huge open field or a desert, and just place a single platform a microphone and speakers, grab his guitar and sing for us while we simply sit on the sand and listen to him. It’s gonna be his fans from every nation…*sigh*… It seems like a wonderful experience… Hey wake up the dream is over!!
I had this in mind because, in one of his interviews, he actually mentioned that back in his high school days he wouldn’t mind singing even there’s no stage no lights no proper venue, just himself and people whom he can share his music. I was still researching about him that time as I made a certain conclusion that Hyun Joong is an artist by heart. That’s very typical description of a real artist. He doesn’t prioritize on money, because he believes in proving himself and his worthiness then money eventually will follow. And it works for him very effectively beyond expectation then share a part of what he gained to the charity which he never neglect.
Maybe if Hyun Joong indeed is a superhero he would build many orphanage for the homeless kids, more free schools for them. And maybe build more homes for the elders who are alone living by themselves. These are the charity organization that he’s been actively supporting. And then his fans get together to help him in helping others. Or maybe Hyun Joong doesn’t have to be a superhero to materialize these activities since he’s already doing it and that his fans already took the initiative in helping in his behalf. Oh this is indeed a very good idol and fan relationship, and such an ideal one to be a role model in the showbiz industry.
Nothing is impossible nowadays to what Hyun Joong wish for, only one thing is his wish of the outer space!! I remember in one talk show, he was relating about his interest in the outer world, and as I was watching him talks I find that kid in him as if telling tales and trying to convince everyone about the outer space. It looks like a joke but he’s serious about his curiosity of the outer space!! Well, those were the days at the TV talk shows when he was a frequent guest last year, which I really miss because this was how I knew more about the guy and his wacky 4D ways. How I wish he can do it again when he’ll be promoting his up coming dramas.
There are lots of events transpired that we get to reminisce about Kim Hyun Joong that for me if I can only bring back the past events, what I would like to see from him again and again is his wackiness!!If I were made to choose what dream would I want to be fulfilled as fan of Kim Hyun Joong? I would like to dream of that event that my superhero would gather all his fans all over the world in one open space with him sitting with his guitar and sing for us. Shallow it may be no grand fanfare but simply Kim Hyun Joong as himself for real and his fans just being together that nothing else matter! Why not, dreams are free anyway, but don’t doze off longer or you might miss Hyun Joong getting on his flight on his location shooting for City Conquest!!
Kim Hyun Joong will always be our Alien Superhero, in our heart and in our daily reality life.
