By: LazerKim The Prince is back on field as Kim Hyun Joong shines in the ballgame yesterday as he joined the FC Men to play soccer at noon time. Since it’s getting colder in S.Korea, it’s good for Hyun Joong to take for a run. It’s nice to see him so handsome as he outshine other celebs on the field, now I have been wondering, is there anything that Hyun Joong can not do that he will not shine??
Wouldn’t you be proud that your idol is also an active sportsman, and take note, Hyun Joong is not doing this just to show off since soccer has been his favorite sports and a player back in his kiddie days or high school days! Remember in my recent article, he would go to school and hop to another school just to play ball! That’s Kim Hyun Joong, a real sports Prince! As I was watching the video clip, I was laughing at myself as I noticed one of the players was in pink hair and in style with gel! I know who he was that I can’t help laugh as if if I want to tell him,”hey kiddo don’t you feel sticky with that hair gel while playing the ballgame??”
As I was browsing at his FC Men photos just now, I have noticed a photo that may perceive that Hyun Joong got hurt. I was looking for post at the twitter on updates about the ballgame but I couldn’t find one. It seemed Hyun Joong got a sprain, wounded or something which is likely to happen since it’s getting cold in Korea. Seeing from the photos he seemed to be in pain somewhere in his leg. Oh I just hope I can get some updates as to what happened to him but I hope he’s alright. Anyway, I do not want to alarm you, the guy is a sports man, he’s strong and he’ll be alright!
BEHIND THE SCENE
I read post from somewhere and a picture showing Hyun Joong’s leading ladies in his drama projects stepped on a platform to look taller since Hyun Joong’s height is 181cm. which is almost six feet tall and he’s being paired with shorter actresses!! I have seen some video clips of behind the scene that the production staffs really placed the actress in a platform to look taller specially on close up shots, aside from the fact that these girls are already in high heel shoes!! I was laughing about the scenes how the production crew can do magic on TV screens!! Well being short is not a “minus” to any actress if she’s cute and good in her ability or she’s the right choice for the role.
Behind the scene clips actually are the most interesting scenes that I would like to be watching that shows how creative TV productions are particularly with Korean dramas. And it serves a good promo to the drama too, like that action scene Hyun Joong had for City Conquest which shows a fight scene in a building but was done in the studio that Hyun Joong did well. Then there’s the exciting motor bike chase as Hyun Joong did it by himself is just so impressive and he looks so handsome in his bike with his helmet!
May I say it again, that I couldn’t help not mentioning that I really hope the drama management of City Conquest would release some behind the scene shots. I think this is becoming a trend anyway, that some productions do release behind the scene shots at YouTube prior to the official airing of the drama which became effective to the audience that somehow can catch curiosity and eagerness in looking forward for the drama prior to its airing. I hope City Conquest would do the same, actually they have shown it in Japan but how I wish to see a bit more!
I read an article that talks about Hyun Joong doing his drama projects based on manga or from comic book. It’s a fact, yes, since his previous dramas BOF and PK were both based from the comics which includes his upcoming drama City Conquest. In my opinion I think for an actor doing a drama whether the plot was based on books or comics, I think it is the more challenging than creating a character from a drama plot writer. An actor has to copy the characters based on books which audience had already read, to make it effective base on what the audience expectations who had read the certain book or comic.
I would like to think because of Hyun Joong’s ability to transform which is a rare asset in an actor, he has an excellent way of putting life to a character. Hyun Joong was saying he really study the moves of the character describe in the comic book including the character’s style of dressing up, image, hair style, mannerisms, ect. Everything about the character’s personality, and attitude that he learns to adopt on and off cam, that even his friends were puzzled in his personality change as the Kim Hyun Joong slowly diminishing in some period of time.
Another comic character that Hyun Joong dreams in portraying is his favorite One Piece which is a Japanese manga. I read the synopsis of this comics and I would say the main character has an interesting personality, as Hyun Joong mentioned in his first fan meeting in Japan, that he has similarity to the character of being a sleepy head, who loves drinking and someone who is just careless!! But the character is a master in swords since he is a pirate.
As I picture the plot, it’s like a comedy action drama, that I really wish he’ll be able to fulfill his dream drama, since he mentioned that if a producer would be interested in making a drama out of One Piece, he certainly wish to be given the role to him. Actually I wouldn’t mind whatever drama project there is for Hyun Joong because for sure his fans would support it. I would really wish for more dramas for Hyun Joong. Having given more chances on drama projects, the more he’ll have the chance to master his acting skills which is the goal of every actor in portraying different characters.
I watched a video interview of his boss Bea Yong Joon, and he was saying every Korean actor would love to try on doing at least one drama with historic genre. It was said that Korean historic genre is one expensive production but has been resulting a good impact on Korean tourism. I was a drama addict before I followed Hyun Joong and historic genre is one of my favorite Korean drama to watch. I think almost all of this type of drama that I have watched in terms of story plot as the twist in the story are mostly interesting and creative.
I find the location setting, costume and action stunts are very interesting. Most of Korean drama in historic genre have a large scale of cast, this also calls for production cost including the horses on war field scenes which is very impressive. Costumes are also attractive and I would like to see Hyun Joong in top knot!! Since Hyun Joong is on that direction of being an action star, I can only predict that historic genre might be his next drama project. Well this is just a wishful thinking, since he already mentioned One Piece, it somehow gave me the impression, that historic genre is also in his mind.
Now that reminds me, if you’re looking for a drama and you have not watch Dong Yi, I would highly recommend this drama to watch. It’s not a new drama though, since it was aired in Korea in 2010 but it was aired in my country this year. This drama has so many twist and a lot of lessons can learn about ambition, rival between rich and poor. It’s about a King and having four queens in his palace, highlights a palace slave who was able to achieve the highest rank of Lady of the Court. It’s in 60 episodes that I actually have been watching for three days now!! But this is a good drama to recommend, that is if historic drama is in your interest, then this is a must see drama, while waiting for City Conquest.
I told myself I’m not gonna talk about City Conquest for a while because sometimes I get to be so impatient whenever I thought about the airing date which is said to be early next year with unconfirmed date. And because time seem to be dragging, I tried watching other dramas just to ease down my eagerness for City Conquest!! But while re-watching other dramas, I kept seeing Hyun Joong from the lead actors from the drama I am watching!!
That I kept wishing Hyun Joong would work on more dramas, at least I got longer time of seeing him on my TV screen!! And then I can imagine myself with the thoughts of “what if”, meaning I’m having thoughts about the future, that I’m hoping I would have many collections of Hyun Joong’s video clips from his concerts and other events, then DVDs of all his dramas, which I really wish he can have more chances for drama projects so that I can have more collections.
What am I thinking? Well, it’s the thoughts of that period after three years, when I can no longer see him anywhere for a while at least I can still watch Hyun Joong in my drama collections, including his music. Oh I’m so thankful for those fans who are tireless in taking his pictures and videos that I can collect and keep even at the soccer field, as Hyun Joong can be seen running around that field! My imagination is running wild that I wish when Hyun Joong gets to the military gate, how I wish somebody can take his pictures while marching on the military field too!! Now I start to wonder how are the fans of those celeb inside the military deals with longings for their idols?? I wonder how will I deal with my addiction??
This is all I have for today, don’t get puzzled with me I’m just simply in the state of boredom and missing the Prince of Soccer after seeing his pictures at FC Men and at Center Pole!! At least we have these pictures from time to time during his absence from his concert stage and TV screens!!! How to deal with anticipation, eagerness, and longing to watch Kim Hyun Joong is my two cent question!!
