By: LazerKim I was on my way back to work as I boarded my early morning flight to my work venue which started yesterday and I can’t describe my feelings of excitement after leaving my post for almost a year, I’m finally back in action! As I disembarked and walked towards the immigration, there were series of long line which means the airport where I have been was rather unusually busy!
At the far end from where I was, I saw a stunning tall guy in black coat and wearing a black baseball cap yawning while walking! I felt my face blushed and smiled and said to myself, the sleepyhead still sleepy this early morning but soon he’ll be rocking the entire Japan and shall spread another explosive event all over the world to start today! This is a word from a fan!!
Kim Hyun Joong boarded his flight yesterday morning bound to Kansai Airport Osaka Japan to start his Japan Tour Concert series at the World Memorial Hall in Kobe. This time I have noticed an additional bodyguard with him whom I recognized to be his boss personal bodyguard! I guess Hyun Joong’s handlers are now aware of the incident happened recently as he was mobbed by some of his Korean fans at Incheon Airport.
At least this time we do not have such scene at the airport lobby but as Hyun Joong reached Kansai Airport in Osaka, a huge crowd of fans welcomed him on his arrival. However his Japanese fans were well behaved and just cheer out his name that gave him something to smile about and wave at his fans!
At noon time yesterday the ball started to roll as Hyun Joong attended to his rehearsals at the venue in preparation to his first day UNLIMITED concert together with the band the Downhell which shall be held tonight! After months of rehearsals, hard work and late hour jamming with the band, finally Hyun Joong shall be on stage again to share his music with his fans who have been so eager to be captured by Hyun Joong’s charisma on stage! This is another explosive show that we have not seen from Hyun Joong in his recent concerts since he’ll be bringing out another brand new Kim Hyun Joong as a rocker!
Well what could be in store for us from this concert? That would remain to be seen but since we all know very well that Hyun Joong has always been in his best self with his quality music every time he’s on stage, this is gonna be a spectacular show. We may have seen him singing with the live band but I think this one is entirely different even shall we say he’ll be with the same band, but it feels like a different Kim Hyun Joong from the last time we have seen him in concert with the band. This time it will surely rock your heart out with his simplicity yet capturing aura as a star singer!
In concert series similar to Hyun Joong’s Japan Tour, the first day show is always the most important among the series and the last one, because it is in these shows that has always been highlighted. The success of the first show can lead to further word of the mouth from those who are able to see it first and at times the same audience comes back to watch the second or third show. The media normally are given the chance to watch the concert and from there publicity about the concert begins other than the advertisements publicized prior to the show. The last show is always been remembered as a basis for the future concerts an artist can perform.
Hyun Joong had already marked prestige in his recent Asian Fan Meeting Concert in mid-year of 2012 and all of those concert events were successful as he innovated the stereo type fan meeting as he was the first among the Kpop idols who have ever presented a different show or had changed the concept of fan meeting events. Hyun Joong had already gained the good reputation in performing concerts in giving the best quality of shows an artist can ever perform, through his creative ideas and different concepts every time he steps on the stage and he truly worked hard for it.
Each concert may take two or three hours to perform for the audience to watch, but the effort in preparing for it takes months to achieve perfection and that’s how Hyun Joong works for his concerts. In which everything within the show is well planned out, carefully conceptualized and time consuming continues rehearsals to bring out the best in entertainment. Hyun Joong by nature is a perfectionist, he never get to content himself unless he satisfies himself and making sure he is able to capture his audience the minute he stands on the stage till the end of every concert he performs.
Everything matters to Hyun Joong in terms of preparation for his shows that every single detail is important to him. It doesn’t matter if it would take the whole night till the wee hours at dawn to rehearse his repertoire, for him it’s simply saying as “better do it now while time allows it than be regretful for ignoring such small details.” That’s him, and he has that endless energy to work on every details within the concert he planned that has to be materialized as planned and to make it as perfect as he can.
Hyun Joong is such a contagious person that his passion over his concert preparation can pour down to the production crew’s enthusiasm to work hard with him too!! And this is another thing which I find very interesting in him, his charisma is not only for his fans but those whom he worked with behind the scene, from the top to the lowest rank in the production! Hyun Joong is a special artist that anyone would wish to work with because of his passion to his craft and being a hard worker can be so inspiring in bringing out the best in any show production. Hyun Joong is very much encouraging in the production and it’s just so contagious!
His Japanese fans and many of the international fans have been eagerly anticipating this Japan Tour Concert Series as a part of his commemoration of his first album UNLIMITED which majority of his fans had already gotten the album. Some of his fans from nearby countries in Japan and some were coming from US and other western countries, had gone out of their way to travel just to watch Hyun Joong’s Unlimited Concert Series. Knowing that Hyun Joong always brings something new every time he performs, one cannot just get enough of him even it was only six months ago that he rocked Japan by his HEAT, now he returns to a new rocker image that can excite everyone by his spell!!
Well, Hyun Joong had a long day yesterday in his rehearsals who is completely focused, totally inspired, and pretty much excited for tonight’s concert as his first night to rock Kobe and pretty much enthusiastic to rock our hearts out even those from afar!! So stay tune, I’m sure many of his fans out there are just as excited as Hyun Joong is, in updating tonight’s event! You won’t believe this but I’ve been writing this article from yesterday morning during my breaks through a laptop which is foreign to me and at last I’m done!! I just can’t help the feeling of being excited of being back to work on my first day!! Busy but very inspiring!
Oh before I go please keep on voting for Kim Hyun Joong at the Star of the Year. Don’t give up simply because Hyun Joong’s rank dropped to no.2, the more we should vote and just enjoy playing games with the robot!! Nothing matters, we are fans and we cannot just let Hyun Joong’s name displayed without growing numbers!! FIGHT for he deserves to be up there!
Please do allow me to just mention this matter, the other night a new fan was in search of Kim Hyun Joong and she asked some questions which gave me the impression that she was at lost in search about Hyun Joong, the voting polls and she had encountered some rudeness from another fan. I feel sorry for her which I understand, since I was once like her too when I was very new being a fan and using the twitter. I hope we can be a bit considerate with the new fans specially those who may find it hard to express themselves in English specially at the twitter.
At the same time there are others who pretend to be fans of Hyun Joong but actually they have other motives in getting info which I have encountered such insects too! So let’s keep with our awareness around us. Now there are some insects who send me email and writing negative info about Hyun Joong, and I call these people coward so I ignore. Sorry girl I don’t write anything without basis. I don’t mean to be rude but just stating my opinion!
By the way, there’s another voting polls conducted in Japan which I just found out last night, although I have already voted I still have not read the nature of the voting polls. All I know is that Hyun Joong is being nominated in four different categories and that you may vote once a day through twitter and facebook or I’m not sure if a voter can subscribe through the poll site. Anyway, you may check this out if I’m right that we can still vote.
