By: LazerKim Whenever Kim Hyun Joong is out there on his public exposure we take every chances we have to follow his updates on his daily activities. Every minute counts, every photo taken is vital, every media news release is important and with hopes to hear from him personally. We had those busy days with Hyun Joong and it was fun following his updates as the months rolled during his fan meeting concert and his album launching in Japan. These are all quite recent until he’s back to his cocoon, this time he’s busy filming City Conquest. We are left as where we are back to busy days in the real world of daily routine work or studies.
This time I was given the chance to look back from where I came from, where I stumbled on to Kim Hyun Joong before I ended up in this blog site. We may have different stories on how we have first seen Hyun Joong but I’m sure our stories have one thing in common and that is being addicted to him. Hyun Joong does not know each one of us personally, but we know a lot about him from what we read about him and see from the video clips.
But I do believe both Kim Hyun Joong and his fans love each other, that there’s a bonded connection beyond explanation. A fan asked me, how did Hyun Joong affect your life? And I simply said, he changed my life for the better. We do meet people for different reasons and so with Hyun Joong, he does meet a lot of people, but how does these people affect his life? How about you, how does Hyun Joong affects your life?
A regular reader of mine left this quote in my comment box which I would like to share with you. Thank you Noya for sharing this, here it goes:
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need
you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to
provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically,
emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are
there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing on
your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something
to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they
walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we
must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their
work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn
has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace
or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is
real. But only for a season.!
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must
build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is
to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to
use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love
is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason,
a season or a lifetime.
When I read this, I thought about Hyun Joong’s career life from how he started up until at present. Just like anyone of us we meet different people everyday of our life and so with Hyun Joong. People come and go as he walks his path towards the stardom either for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When Hyun Joong was young at the age nineteen was when he started under DSP with his group SS501. It was here where he learned his first step like a toddler who’s learning how to walk. As a starter in the showbiz industry, he needs to be equipped or to be groomed, to nurture his talent further together with his members.
DSP was there to provide what is being needed by the five members SS501 as they all grew up together like brothers. It’s a part of Hyun Joong’s history and had played a vital role to his career that he will never forget as he looks back in his past. Whenever I watch the video clips of SS501, I can’t help but smile at the five of them playing jokes all the time and it was fun watching them. It shows how they care for one another, having equal support among them and how they work hard to come up in a real team effort as one. Hyun Joong was a responsible leader and a good ice breaker to his members as he took care of them being their elder brother.
I also have seen how they all cared about their fans and their individual sincerity in meeting their expectations in bringing the best performance every time the group was on stage. I have seen the members taking time for autograph signing and sincerely smile at each fan approaching each member. Although the group has five members they work as one, they literally breath as one and they once live as one in one roof like a family. Unfortunately, the time came that the five years of togetherness came to an end, as their contract with DSP was terminated. And currently all five members are doing their individual choice of activities from different agents and they are all doing great in their endeavor.
Hyun Joong’s previous agent came to his life for a REASON, since it was here where he was developed at the first stage of his career. On the last term of his contract something came up which was quite unexpected to happen between Hyun Joong and the CEO of the agency in 2010 months before the contract expiration. Apparently this incident brought Hyun Joong to a controversy which was never been his fault at all, based on the facts I read and the video clip I have seen. There’s a reason why this incident has to happen most probably for Hyun Joong to realize some areas in his career has to change.
Back then Hyun Joong was put into a test that caused him pain, but as they say, at the end of the tunnel there’s light even brighter than what he had in the past. As Hyun Joong moved in to KeyEast, he met new faces that again will guide and support him in his new career life as solo singer. He met these people for another REASON but basically it’s for his career advancement. He was given a lot of freehand liberty to create his music and had resulted to a great success beyond expectation. Whatever is in store for his future still remains unseen but so far Hyun Joong and KeyEast are doing just great.
People Hyun Joong meets during his performances in concerts are people who comes in SEASON, his audience be it non-fans or his fans. For a short period of the show brings him such joy as his fans cheer for him and show him so much love he desires as an artist. Hyun Joong embraces whoever comes to him. As I have mentioned in my previous articles, Hyun Joong doesn’t choose his fans as he takes whoever in front of him at the audience gallery regardless to whoever they are, unlike the fans has every right to choose whom they support.
As the show ends his fans go back home but with all the memories of such joy Hyun Joong shared with them and probably would be looking forward for another chance to watch his show again. Just the same with Hyun Joong, he would hope to be with his fans again, it may be in another stage with another different faces but just the same they are his fans. They do come and go both idol and fans looking forward for another chance of togetherness that brought both Hyun Joong and his fans great joy and an unforgettable moment.
Hyun Joong may meet the love of his life sooner or later and this someone whoever she is, shall be the ultimate LIFETIME relationship for him. As an artist who is focus on his dreams of attaining his goal is likely to meet people within the area of his work. Hyun Joong learns to love the people he works with and he learns to love the people who receives the results of what he works hard for and they are his fans. Eventually a special someone will come on his way and learn a different kind of love that he can share with for a lifetime.
A fan wrote as she said, Hyun Joong might end up like his boss Bae Yong Joon who is still a bachelor at this time. I laughed at that, and said Hyun Joong is so handsome and a very ideal man that any girl would dream of marrying and have kids!! It’s only that Hyun Joong is still so engross with his career and that was why he said “I can’t have my career and relationship at the same time. I would like to focus on whatever is lacking in me.” This is simply because Hyun Joong is just starting to built his career as a solo artist.
But once he had filled in what is missing in his ability, it will be easier for him to handle his relationship and career at the same time. It’s his choice, it’s his life, whenever or whoever, that’s up to him to decide for himself and nothing else matter. His privacy remains his personal property that we fans should not touch. When the day comes that it’s time for him to declare his relationship, then we respect his choice and still we leave his privacy.
I believe there can also be lifetime fans who can be there with her idol until he retires from his career and I don’t think this is impossible. There are fans who come and go but definitely there are some who really stays. In my country there’s a comedian whom I grew up with knowing him who plays the role of a father in a TV series since I was a kid. He’s been my idol since, I always watch his movies that I never missed any and TV shows until he passed away quite recently. I think what makes a fan stay with her idol also depends on the idol. Keeping his feet firmly on the ground can bring him higher to stardom and stay.
Many people surrounding Hyun Joong may have played an important role in his career life. But the one that is obvious is his fans being his inspiration. In one talk show he stated “That love is not formed in seconds, but I need to work hard to be able to receive that love.” Hyun Joong is being inspired by his fans and unlike other artist who may have reached their popularity peak, tends to relax and be contented, while as Hyun Joong’s popularity grows, the more he works harder to bring out the best in his ability.
Hyun Joong may not know his fans personally, but they are the ones who inspire him the most and they are his strength in moving forward. I would say, this is how his fans affects his career life to do better if not his best. Just the same with us his fans, we may know a lot about him as much as a fan ought to know, but we do not know him personally even we have seen him in person and yet we love support and protect. He inspires us in our daily life struggle and he somehow affects our life. Hyun Joong is quite strong to resist and can’t get over with him no matter what we do, while Hyun Joong can’t help but get out of his way in creating a connection with his fans and sincerely provide what his fans needs from him as their idol.
One may say the bond between Hyun Joong and his fans may be mysterious or magical that seems unbelievable, but it’s real. The people Hyun Joong meets, the people comes to him in season that brought him such joy are real and they are his fans. They may also be people he meets with reason, but they are real and these may be for lifetime yet it’s real. These people are part of Hyun Joong’s life whether they stay or stray, just as he is to us his fans being a part of our daily life.
Kim Hyun Joong came to our life in such a mysterious way that captured our heart as fans with no definite reason as to why we were captured, but it’s real life and can be in lifetime.
Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
