By: LazerKim Kim Hyun Joong is back in his cocoon and back to his work routine in preparing for his projects which is still on going which is the filming for City Conquest, preparing for its promotion, and the album launching for December. But Hyun Joong shall have another event for Center Pole on November 10 at 4 PM at Center Pole MoonJung Store, that’s Hyun Joong’s signature event, so we’ll get to see him again for next month! Hyun Joong is also invited at the Asia Music Festival to be held in Chengdu China on December 8, I’m not sure about the details but the way I understand there shall be voting polls, anyway, I’ll keep you posted.
At Oricon Music Chart update, now here’s something to be proud of, as of October 29th Hyun Joong HEAT is still no.1 on the chart for this month among the Kpop releases, it’s been three months since it was first release but it’s still showed good sales results.
I guess Hyun Joong shall be busy in closing his year 2012 and opening for 2013. Just like last year I remember Hyun Joong was busy hopping from here and there, well I think he’ll be doing the same busy bee once again as he opens up his year 2013, but I bet you these are good and worth waiting for piece of work of Hyun Joong.
I’m actually laughing at Hyun Joong because he said he will focus on being an actor, but then Hyun Joong turned out to be restless, and I could sense he knew the days when his fans were getting bored without him! And so he makes music at the same time he’s filming City Conquest!!
It’s really quite difficult to do two things at the same time, but as we can see I think neither of his projects both in acting and singing were being affected from one another! We have seen the teaser of City Conquest and apparently he did good in his first few filming judging from the teaser. And in singing, he even excel having a live band behind him to back him up, which turned out very successful!
From here I would say I think Hyun Joong has really matured and have over come his fears in acting. He always worry about it and openly admitted, but what I can see from him now is a concrete composure of himself as an actor. I think he’s happy doing both at the same time, he’s not as stressful as he was when he did his previous dramas. He even has been having hectic schedules lately but as we saw him at Happy Camp, he’s blooming, he looks healthy despite of his busy schedules. And I would say he’s happy and contented with the people he work with at present.
The fact that Hyun Joong had changed the drama production system, this gives him more opportunity to justify his acting skills. That this time he has more room to learn in his acting career. I think people do listen to him, well Hyun Joong is a true leader, he is good giving his side of opinion not only for himself but to his other co-actors too. Remember, when he commented about the drama production in Playful Kiss?
Hyun Joong said this back in 2010 during his interview, “People said I have improved my acting skills at PK, but I should have done better if only I was given more time. It’s always been a routine that scripts were given on the same day of filming, I hope this system will change in the future.” He was right with no single doubt. Actors are not robots to begin with, they are human being like us too.
Yesterday as I woke up, the first news I read was about one of Hyun Joong’s members got entangled in a relationship controversy. I feel sorry about this guy, at first he got a problem with his agent and now this one. Although in the news, the allegations had been denied by the member and his agent, that I hope this matter would end from there. I have a deep respect to the members since they were the very first Kpop that I have known and the group shall always be my favorite in terms of Kpop idol group music, even I am not their fan, I’m a great admirer of their music.
Controversial issues are already tagged with showbiz people, some may be true and some may be for publicity purposes only. One way of attracting the public can sometimes through controversial stories that we read from tabloid and celebrity gossip magazines or the broadsheet media print gossip column. I am not familiar with how Koreans take controversial news but I know this country is conservative and sensitive in such issues. But let’s talk about this since I have noticed that celeb’s dating or relationship are usually the favorite topic of media in putting a celeb down or stories that can be talk about by people that can affect the stars career or affect them personally.
Since celebs are public figure, they are likely to be in the eye of the public and media goes after them and their activities. No matter how we say that these celebs are also human like us that they have the right to privacy, still media write about their personal privacy particularly their dating. I can’t speak of other celeb since it’s only about Hyun Joong that I write and research on, but he’s been very careful with his reputation even he has got nothing to hide and knowing the guy is candidly honest. I just could not understand why is it that some fans could not believe he’s not dating anyone!! And that he’s totally focused on his work which apparently have seen in his schedule of activities.
Hyun Joong had said for so many countless times that he’s not in a relationship or not dating anyone at the moment and that all the girls whom he has been meeting are strictly for business purpose only. I believe him with no single doubt, since I find nothing wrong if he wants to focus on his career as the guy has so many plans that he wants to achieve. And accept it or not relationships can be beautiful and can also be stressful for a star who is just on the doorstep of stardom. As I have said I don’t think Hyun Joong would gamble his dreams over a relationship, that I firmly believe.
The controversy that one of the member is being entangled with, is a good example of a star being in a relationship. Be it true or not his name was being dragged by media and this can be painful to the member and time-wasting that he has to explain himself and to prove that the other party’s accusation is not right. This member will soon launch his latest album and instead of focusing on his work, these issues are unneccessary to spare time to answer, but as a celeb he can not just ignore it no matter how much he wants to be at peace. Of course this is just natural, celebs are human being too who can get hurt. These are the implications that an artist may face if he is being placed in a hot seat.
Imagine it’s Hyun Joong who is experiencing such controversy being involve in relationship and in similar controversy, don’t you think Hyun Joong would not be disturbed? Won’t you feel bothered as a fan on how you will defend him whether we believe such controversy or not but the fact that his name is being dragged is such a stress to any star. And this is one thing that I would not want Hyun Joong to experience and I’m sure he never would want it either. Nothing can be hidden from the media as far as stars of showbiz is concern, it’s their bread and butter, so let us not forget that. This may be one reason why Hyun Joong chose to be single, free from anyone who may only cause additional stress on his part.
There are many celebs who gets entangled in a relationship and when this relationship turned out to be ugly their career gets affected too and some ends up into self destruction which is really not good. If ever Hyun Joong get to the stage that he’s confident enough to handle his career at the same time with dating, I surely do hope he finds the right person. It could be so frustrating on his part that he has been taking care of his reputation and ending up in a wrong relationship that might even drag his name to downhill! Oh no Hyun Joong is so good to deserve such experience!! Although I trust him to be smart.
At this stage of Hyun Joong’s career, what he is avoiding most is being entangled in such controversy that I really hope we fans would understand. That’s why I’m giving this example of such controversy that his member got entangled with, for us to understand the possible implications it may create. If there’s smoke there’s fire, and this principle is rather difficult to defend. We fans are the only ones who can defend our idol, not to believe or just jump in to believing is not right. Allow your idol to speak for himself, whether your idol denies any allegation or admits then be at his side, times like this is one important period that idol needs his fans the most to support and letting them know you’re there for him.
As I always say Hyun Joong has his own privacy that we should respect as his fans. And that whatever he decides for himself, I support wholeheartedly with no questions ask anyway it’s his life not mine. After reading this news about his member, I can’t help imagine what if this happens to Hyun Joong, that I wake up one morning a girl just comes out from nowhere and claims this and that!! Of course as a fan I would surely investigate before defending and protecting Hyun Joong, as the alien prepare for counter attack!! LOL Now my imagination is running wild!!
There was only one controversy that Hyun Joong got entangled with in 2010 and right from the start Hyun Joong told the truth with all his honest regardless of consequence he stayed firm in his words and the truth set him free. Hyun Joong does not want any of those kind of involvement and that is why he always come up clean. This is one reason why he prefers to focus on work and has no plans of dating as he already stated. At this point of his career he’s becoming an object of jealousy and envy, many would try to pull him down. I would just be keeping awareness in his surroundings and if I may put up some write right up pertaining anything that perceive negative to Hyun Joong, forgive me but I have to defend.
If Hyun Joong says he wants to focus on his work, take his words. Not all men desires for sex or female company. Yes Hyun Joong is good looking and girls would just come running after him. And that made him even feel scared, as he always say, he doesn’t even want girls to come to him first, he’s a doer by nature, once he knew the girl is also interested in him, he loses interest, he’s that type of man. Hyun Joong is different.
How many times did he choose work over relationship or love? We can’t blame him, he has a dream, as I have said he will never gamble his dream over love. But once he is able to attain all he wants, all his dreams, needless to say he will be there and look for that girl he desire and make another dream with her and his dream kids. But for now, let us allow Hyun Joong to do what he wants for himself, allow him to attain his dreams without encountering unnecessary gossips whatsoever. Many fans email me asking about Hyun Joong’s dating so I’m writing this article in response to those who are asking. As Hyun Joong stated:
“I don’t have plans of dating, I cannot handle my career and relationship at the same time. Other actors can do it, but I’m not as good as them to handle both at the same time.” (source: video interview, Love story DVD)
Hyun Joong has the ability to be popular without using dirty tricks or using other celeb to keep him up there. He is not that kind of celeb. He did not even want to use the name of his group because he wants to build his name on his own effort and ability, and this is very true but had been misinterpreted by others. Hyun Joong is just being professional, which I agree, an artist should not be a shadow of his previous name, just because the group name is popular.
THE LIFE I LIKE
That’s why I love this guy, very independent. And for us, let Hyun Joong enjoy the company of his fans, the more the merrier and this is his priority, to gain more fans whom he can share his projects with. This is the life he had chosen from day one. The other night as I was researching, I found one of his letter to his fans written in May 9, 2010 as he said:
“Honestly, my life to lose a lot under the spotlight like this in my life I’m annoying but I like this life kekek.”
This letter he wrote to his fans was a month before this contract with his previous agent expired, that no one ever had the idea he’s breaking through from the group. Even though he has to face a lot of trials in the future, he bravely faced them without a word of complain from him. Now he’s happy working hard for his fans. He’s happy remaining focus to his target, he’s simply being truthful to his fans as he built a special relationship with us then let’s treasure it and appreciate it. Instead of insisting he needs someone else at his side, because at this time and stage of his career, it is us his fans that he needs at his side and no one else. And he needs more fans to support him, he needs more numbers who can appreciate him for what he is. This is what he needs at this time.
Without the love from each and every fan, I would not be standing here. Therefore, I wish all the fans would continue giving me this love. It is a good inspiration and encouragement for me to try to be better in the next album. (source: Sparkling Magazine)
His Mentor had devoted his entire career life to his fans making them his own family. Before Bae Yong Joon became his boss, Hyun Joong had already been saying, “If I can only attain even half of what Bae Yong Joon had attained I’ll be happy as ever.” Hyun Joong had already devoted himself to his career and to his fans. As I have mentioned in my article yesterday that I have been digging deeper on Hyun Joong’s past reading between the lines of what he’s trying say and for some reasons that I couldn’t find words to explain, maybe I can simply say, this is what he wants to say to you.
This is all I got for today’s dosage, we all do share the love of Kim Hyun Joong and maybe this is just another way of bringing that love from him directly to you everyday.
