By: LazerKim “Wanted Rocker”, his name is Kim Hyun Joong, please disregard the figure written on that picture because this guy is priceless!! If anyone might have seen him, please inform him that the small rocker beats the giants!!
Kim Hyun Joong is wanted by his fans!!! I found some fan arts at Face Book with similar idea as this picture above!! I remember last February and March Hyun Joong was on the stage of preparing for his Asia Tour Fan meeting concert and his fans make use of their leisure time working on some fan arts like this since there were no updates that time! We do share with what we made out of arts, we chat talking about Hyun Joong and sharing our thoughts just to ease the boring days without him. Those were the days shared at the twitter among Hyun Joong’s fans.
Here’s a news update that i would like to share with you:
Kim Hyun-joong sells over 200,000 copies of 2nd Japanese single

Korean singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong has become the first K-pop artist to sell over 200,000 copies of his Japanese single album this year.
According the data by the official Oricon website, Kim moved 200,580 copies of his second Japanese single titled, “HEAT,” since it went on sale in the country on July 4.
Kim’s jaw-dropping record has proven his popularity in Japan, recording high sales compared to iconic K-pop artists Super Junior’s “Opera,” which sold about 184,000 copies since going on sale on May 9, and singing duo TVXQ!’s single “Android,” which moved about 175,000 editions since its release on July 11.
Meanwhile, an official with the “HEAT” singer’s Japanese agency said in a press release Tuesday that Kim has solidified himself as one of the leading artists in the current music scene even with the fierce competition.
Making his debut as a member of K-pop group SS501 in 2005, Kim expanded his career into acting after starring as one of the main characters in KBS’ teenage series “Boys Over Flowers” in 2009.
Kim will soon mark his return to the small screen as the male lead in the upcoming drama “City Conquest,” which will hit airwaves later this year. ~ END ~
Hyun Joong had an interview with Star Date at Saitama Arena that must be taken before his concert. Hyun Joong was asked by Star Date: “I heard your album was nearly sold out, is this true?” Hyun Joong replied, “We only released that much, we should have sold more if we have more!” So then it’s true Heat was sold out during its first launching period! There were insects yesterday roaming around from here and there, and saying Hyun Joong is not a good singer!
I’m getting used to this remark, that I would like to ask those insects, if Hyun Joong is not a good singer, then how come he topped the Oricon among the giant Kpop groups? And why is it that there are many good Kpop solo singers out there as they claimed but could hardly step at the Oricon music chart?? Not even at the top 10 list of Oricon? I’m just asking. The record shows there were over 200,000 CD copies of Heat that were sold out, does this mean all those people who bought the CD could harly recognize a good singer from a bad singer? I’m just asking, nothing personal!!
Here’s another news update about City Conquest: Source: Kpop Starz >(http://www.kpopstarz.com/articles/13567/20120903/kim-hyun-joong-begins-city-conquest-japan-promotions.htm)
Kim Hyun Joong Begins ‘City Conquest’ Japan Promotions
Kim Hyun Joong’s drama, “City Conquest” will begin its Japan promotions on October 4 at Budokan. It is also the same day as Kim Hyun Joong’s official Japan fan club, ‘HENECIA JAPAN’ 1 year anniversary premium event where there will be a special event and a recent video of “City Conquest” shown. “City Conquest” will air in Japan in March of 2013 on DATV. ~END~
City Conquest shall start its promotion in Japan and this is sooner than I expect, that’s one month from now, although this is not official as yet. I have read from another update since the drama production for City Conquest struggles about the network where this drama shall be aired since the big three are fully booked with other dramas all year round. I’m just having silly thoughts, that anywhere City Conquest shall be aired, if doesn’t matter since anywhere Hyun Joong is, his fans shall follow him, they will watch this drama no matter what network it would be.
The production management also mentioned that they would film as much episodes as they can before airing, which in my opinion would be better. I remember how stressful a Korean drama was being produced, that filming and airing happens at the same time. Then a lot of changes and adjustments took place following the Korean viewers as how they want the drama should be!! Which I think is absurd!! I think Hyun Joong and the rest of the cast of City Conquest can have more time filming this drama and with lesser stress. I would think it is better to film the entire drama before it can be aired just like in the movie production.
I remember in one of Hyun Joong’s interview for Playful Kiss, that he was wishing scripts would be given to the cast before filming so that they can have better preparation. Unlike giving the script on the day of filming which gives the cast limited time to memorize and internalize the lines to be delivered. If the production management of City Conquest can film as much episodes that they can before airing, since this drama is likely to be aired either later this year or earlier next year, then I think the cast can have a more relaxing filming schedules with less stress on the casts and the script writer as well.
Anywhere I go where Hyun Joong fans are, I read similar post as “where are you Hyun Joong, I miss you so much”. I think majority of Hyun Joong’s fans feels the same boredom and missing Hyun Joong so much!! I posted that Wanted Rocker, with hopes he would appear before his fans and say hello!! This is all I have for today’s daily dose, I’m actually having trouble with my eye site so I’ll give in to take a rest. And for my parting shots….
Kim Hyun Joong has everything what it takes to be where he is ought to be, on top. You can NEVER put a good man down….
