Let’s vote for Kim Hyun Joong, NOW!
Hyun Joong debuted as an actor in 2009 as he did the famous manga Boys Over Flower which was a huge success. Many of his fans first had seen him in this drama, and I would say he gained an excellent popularity boost from all age range of fans. Among the cast of BOF he was the first actor to be confirmed, I would probably say Hyun Joong was fated to this direction in his career and proved to be a promising actor in 2009. In his documentary he mentioned that at first he didn’t have any interest in the acting field, but as he did BOF Hyun Joong discovered another talent in himself.
In my recent article Hyun Joong mentioned that he’s always been diligent in his work, that he always do his best whatever in in his hands. BOF was his first acting experience, and since he doesn’t have the experience in acting, he worked hard in learning the other side of himself. There are times in our lives that we may not be aware of our hidden talent and unless we give ourselves a try, that would be the only time we discover within ourselves what we are capable of doing. Same principle with Hyun Joong, BOF was his first try out in the acting field that I’m sure not all of us who have watched BOF for the first time would think it was his first acting project.
In this article allow me to continue the last episode of this talk show hosted by Kang Hodong guested by Hyun Joong. For my other readers who just came in today, this is my forth article to be writing about this talk show Knee Drop Guru hosted by Kang Hodong which I have been writing for four consecutive days now. This time Hyun Joong talks about how he started to be an actor, how he was cast for BOF, and how he feels about being an actor for the first time.
Kang Hodong: Even among all the idols, you have a particularly handsome face. How were you offered a role in BOF?
KHJ: I was in Japan and BOF production team called and asked me to try out for a Rui role. I had no idea what that was and so for the first time in my entire life, I read a romance manga. When I saw the manga, there were so many stars drawn in the characters’ eyes. I could not read it as it was blinding me every time I turned the page. I was really stressed over it. I wondered whether I had to do it. It is something that I would feel uncomfortable and awkward.
The DSP president asked me why I don’t want to do it so I said that I will do it and took the audition. The BOF team auditioned me and said that on the outside I pass as Rui but I was sure that they were worried about my first time acting. So I decided to study on my own by analyzing the every aspect of the the manga character.
I studies how Rui character laid his hands on the chair at what angle and how he might have spoken. After I saw the first episode, I realized that my acting was strange and starting about 4 episodes, I realized that natural acting is the best kind of acing and I changed my method.
KHD: Were you getting lots of criticism?
KHJ: Oh yes. The kind of criticisms that says, my hands and feet are curling from such unnatural acting. Just stick to being a singer but you’re not a great singer either.’ After reading such a harsh comment, I really wanted to find the IP address of that person who commented!!. But as those posts turned slowly to praises, I received much encouragement to do even better. But as those posts turned slowly to praises, I received much encouragement to do better.
KHD: I sense in you a tough guy in your character. So this role must have been hard for you.
KHJ: If I hear an actor say on TV that he was so absorbed in his role that it was difficult to get out of it. I used to think it a lie and felt that a person cannot deviate too far from himself even in acting. But I realized that while I was living as Yoon JiHoo for that 5 to 6 months, myself as Kim Hyun Joong disappeared . Even my friends who called me at that time felt puzzled by me.
KHD: You must felt the power of the BOF when you went overseas for promotions.
KHJ: Yes, but, it was the BOF exporting business team who deserve the credit for exporting the drama so well!! I felt that on the top was Lee Minho, then the producers and Go Hye Sun leading lady and then I was just tagging along.
KHD also asked about how his popularity was so high that he went to sing at the Asia Olympics.
KHJ: I did feel the popularity by the chanting of the fans calling out my name. But one hour later they all quiet down as it was so hot there!!!
BEST OF JIHOO
I read a translation of one of Hyun Joong’s interviews and he was saying whenever he browse at the internet, he reads articles about him, and avoid reading negatives about him. Even Hyun Joong as a star or celeb who might have gone used to criticisms, he is also a human being who can naturally be offended or discourage. Well, who wouldn’t be? Maybe only those who are insensitive or who pretends to be numb not to be affected!! As I have mentioned in my recent article Hyun Joong had enough criticisms in the past. One irritating criticism is one that is completely baseless criticisms coming from some foreigners when it comes to dramas.
I have been reading comments from the past after Hyun Joong did BOF that some fans was saying that he changed, that he was less playful than before. In this talk show he said that he was living as Jihoo for 5 to 6 months that even after the filming he still had Jihoo with him!! So I think this explains why Hyun Joong became less talkative back in time after BOF, because for a certain period while doing BOF he was able to acquire the character of Yoon Jihoo on and off cam.
Hyun Joong remained humble by giving all the credits of the success of the drama to his co-stars and producers, but the fact was that, it was Hyun Joong who gained more attention among the casts of BOF. After airing the drama his fans continued increasing in numbers that even his group tagged along with him. As he started performing solo, the larger numbers still increase and these fans from the time he started in the lime light or even before he was with his group, his fans stayed.
For me, no matter what he says he wanted others to point out on his weak points, I think it would be better to let the experts do that job for him. Everyone wants to be told about their good points and words of encouragement can be so inspiring too. Hyun Joong knows what is lacking in him, he knows what areas in his ability to work on to improve as we do see the good results from his hard work. He remained truthful to himself, embracing his flaws while working hard to nurture what he got.
When I first watched BOF I didn’t know that Hyun Joong was a first timer actor because he was good in portraying Ji Hoo. As I re-watch the drama, I couldn’t see what his critics were saying. Boys Over Flower is my most unforgettable drama that I have ever watch because of Dr. Yoon Ji Hoo. As Hyun Joong said in this drama he just tagged along with the two lead characters, but his presence at BOF as Ji Hoo made the big difference. I’m just being truthful on how Hyun Joong portrayed the role of Dr. Jihoo! He’s indeed the best bet and the perfect actor in portraying the role. I can’t imagine any other actor who could play the role as excellent as Hyun Joong did.
TWO DOCTORS AND A MAN
I’m happy, contented and addicted to Hyun Joong, I’m very proud to be one of his fans, I made the right choice whom to follow. I’m lucky having Hyun Joong to be so talented that gives me a lot of chances to see him as a singer, dancer or actor which he excels in all of these areas, what more can I ever ask for? I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of him because it’s like meeting a lot of celebs in just one person. I can see him every where since Hyun Joong has been dominating the internet with a lot of his handsome photos, and by just looking at those photos satisfies me everyday!
Now I’m looking forward to his upcoming drama City Conquest, that I really wish the drama production management would soon release its official preview of the drama. I’m also looking forward for his next guesting at talk shows and talk about how he felt while filming this drama, and learn more about Kim Hyun Joong. For I have seen from the short teaser, that this time Dr. Yoon Ji Hoo and Dr. Baek Seung Jo had grown up into a real man that I have seen a very different character of Hyun Joong as Baek Mir.
Even I describe him in so many ways everyday in my articles over and over again, I just don’t seem to get tired of telling the truth about Hyun Joong. There are over 300 articles that I have written so far which means I have been writing about him for over 300 days and still hoping to be able to pursue in filling up the internet all about Kim Hyun Joong!!
I don’t seem to get enough of him so I just tend to write my thoughts whatever comes out from my mind. I’m asking myself again, what’s with this guy??
