By: LazerKim I started writing all about Kim Hyun Joong on the Eve of Christmas in 2011 as I wrote the article My Christmas Dream few hours before the clock strikes at 12 and ended up writing and posting articles on daily basis in 2012. This blog became my home as Kim Hyun Joong has always been with us to share what he got for us his fans. I got so many memories in this blog in getting to know him better as an artist, as a person and the best of all is that you, my dear readers have been here in making those memories even happier for Kim Hyun Joong.
I may have failed to post an article on the Eve of Christmas, but have not forgotten how memorable this day is for me and my readers that I would like to greet everyone Happy Second Year Anniversary! As this blog was first created on the same winter season filled with love and inspiration from Kim Hyun Joong!
WINTER IN CHINA
I think Hyun Joong is truly enjoying filming Inspiring Generation in Shanghai that I would like to grab this chance to thank those fans for being so active in posting updates pertaining his day to day activities in Shanghai China while filming Inspiring Generation. As I was browsing around I’ve seen this picture above that I think this was taken from a mall’s event Merry Kissmas, as couples kiss each other in public and Hyun Joong had that kiddie reaction after seeing the couples which gave me the impression he’s somewhat embarrass! In Hyun Joong’s recent interview “Do You Know Me”, Hyun Joong mentioned this statement:
KHJ: “My friends all had that manly look at age 24. I am rather a little late since I have a baby face (laugh).
I agree with Hyun Joong’s friends that even he shows his manly image, his baby face still somehow surface! And I must admit, it’s not only his baby face that shows, but the Kim Hyun Joong kid is still there inside him that a lot of times it just pop out from him, just like the photo above! He is turning 29 next year yet looks so young and vibrant. But how I wish to pull back the time when he was much younger by age doing solo so that I can see more of Kim Hyun Joong as a singer and as an actor.
INSECTS ON WINTER?
Kim Hyun Joong spent his Christmas this year in China with Santa Claus!! From the time I started researching all about this guy, I think winter is the busiest season for Hyun Joong. And winter is his favorite season, other than Hyun Joong loves the cold wind of winter, there are lesser insects during this season! For the new fans, Hyun Joong hate insects which mostly comes around during summer! Well except for this season this year, he got a lot of insects criticizing him for doing another drama!!
I actually expect these haters to pop out again as they always do every time Hyun Joong is on headline doing drama or any of his project shooting up to its success. Just remember this, while Hyun Joong kept his chain of success going and his popularity continue to boost up, they will surely attack! But this time I chose to let go of these insects and let them talk like a bee! The more they talk, the more non-fans get curious about Hyun Joong’s up-coming drama!
Oh I know a lot of fans just started out of curiosity, then followed by searching about Hyun Joong and ended up being an addict to him! And surely he will generate another crowd of new fans and be captured by Kim Hyun Joong’s magic spell! The very same thing he did to all of us, that made us all addicted to him! How did we start being a fan? I can guess we’re all at the same boat roaring towards the guy! Am I right?
DRAMA IN WINTER
I can’t help wonder as to why people talk about Korean drama TV ratings when this drama Inspiring Generation have not been aired in Korea yet! Let the Korean producers worry about ratings, this doesn’t even concern the international fans because all we have to do is to wait for this drama to be aired and watch it! For me whether I’ll be able to watch this drama while it is being aired in Korea or there are a lot of ways I can watch through the internet, it doesn’t matter how, the important thing is I’ll be meeting my Only One as an actor again, period.
Inspiring Generation shall be aired via KBS on January 15, 2014 every Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10pm KST, for approximately 12 weeks in 24 episodes. If I were Hyun Joong’s Korean fans and really support him, I careless whatever time it will be aired on my local TV, anyway we don’t do this everyday of our lives! In fact if only I can watch Hyun Joong everyday I would surely do so just like watching BOF and PK on my local TV! And would be awaiting till such time DVD of Inspiring Generation can be released and watch Hyun Joong over and over again! That’s how addict I turned out after meeting Kim Hyun Joong as an actor, then being a singer, then being a person.
Let’s just look forward to Inspiring Generation, let’s not worry about ratings because this would only be a burden to Hyun Joong once he sees his fans worried about it. Why worry if our intention is simply meeting Hyun Joong as an actor which we have been waiting for. Let’s bear in mind he’s doing this drama for all of us because there’s a high demand for him to do so specially from his fans, despite of the cold winter season, he’s still doing the drama filming and we’re here to support as his fans. If Hyun Joong has been our daily inspiration, it’s the same with him, it’s his fans who inspire him the most in any project he does.
In fact we fans has a role to play once this drama will be aired, or even prior to airing, and that is to spread the word that Hyun Joong is playing the lead role in Inspiring Generation making sure that every single fan is aware of it. And once this is being aired, then let’s work on word of the mouth to non-fans which is the most powerful advertising tool.
Time is running fast and before we know it, we’ll probably seldom see him. Hyun Joong would love to do another drama after this project which I think all of us has the same wish before he gets to the gate of the military camp. We have his music stock in our bags and we listen to those music every time. If Hyun Joong would be doing two dramas in a row at least we have some more dramas to watch every time we miss him. Well this is just expressing my thoughts. For me, Inspiring Generation is very important since it’s Hyun Joong’s come back drama which is another memory I want to treasure.
MEMORIES OF MAGIC SPELL!
I used to envy the veteran fans that they have stayed with Hyun Joong for years since he started in the lime light in 2005 and I was then asking myself, “will I be able to stay that long or will I be able to write that much for years?” In 2012 when Hyun Joong did his Asian Tour Concert, a veteran fan stated something like “Once a fan caught by Hyun Joong’s magic net, it would be difficult to break from his spell!” I’m sure many of us had proven this fact to ourselves, the guy is just so irresistible!
During my absence, there are lots of new fans from different countries leaving comments from my old articles, sharing their first encounter with Kim Hyun Joong. I was all smiling because I can see myself from them when I was first researching about this guy, calling myself an addict to Kim Hyun Joong! It felt like it’s been years but it was only barely two years that I wrote those articles! Lately this military training kept popping in my thoughts that I can’t help to imagine myself in front of the internet searching for the guy which use to be so easy and suddenly gone!
Hyun Joong has been with us for all season of each year, but for some reason, it’s winter that remained ever memorable for me maybe because I started openly talking about him on this season back in 2011! We have seen him grew up into a man when he started doing solo and he consistently present himself at the beginning and ending of each year with us his fans. Surely he’ll be meeting with us at the beginning of this year with his upcoming drama Inspiring Generation, but am I going to meet him by the end of 2014?
I want to leave that question aside, and all I want to do now is to gather all memories I got from Hyun Joong, spare every break time I got from work and enjoy every single moment of those memories I can gather. I guess this is gonna be my New Year’s Resolution!! Being showered by Kim Hyun Joong’s magic spell is the most memorable moment I got being his fan! I guess everyone of us here was being captured by his magic spell and each of us has a story to tell in meeting Kim Hyun Joong!
The clock is ticking and the count down had started as we welcome 2014 with our ONLY ONE! Thank you so much for being with each other with this guy all year round from the beginning till end of each year as we gather our own Winter Memories with Kim Hyun Joong…
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
