With the help from other Kim Hyun Joong fans I’m sure we can find our way to watch this drama, just don’t miss it if possible!
May I share with you from viki’s blog, Five Reasons To Watch Inspiring Generation, thanks for sharing. (http://blog.viki.com/2014/01/5-reasons-to-watch-inspiring-generation.html)
BEHIND THE EXCITEMENT
Many of us if not all are pretty excited in watching Inspiring Generation and many fans may be keeping their fingers cross, of course all of us would like this drama to be successful. But actually all we have to do now is to sit back, relax, watch this drama and most of all enjoy it. Hyun Joong is so excited working on it as we see how he matured as an actor. After three long years we shall be able to see his development as an actor and from this drama I guess it’s worth waiting for.
There was a video footage posted last night during the outdoor filming, obviously it’s winter and everyone at the filming set were wearing thick winter jackets and coats. Except for Hyun Joong who was barely wearing a rugged sleeveless thin cotton shirt, and he was all shivering from the cold winter, but it seems he doesn’t mind at all and just work on the action scenes! Poor Hyun Joong though but this is the essence of being an actor particularly being an action star which is I think is the most difficult and dangerous, this of course includes the stunt men too.
So many challenges for Hyun Joong, but come on, what’s the essence of life being an artist without challenges, it’s a part of growing up, it’s a part of artist’s development that Hyun Joong or any artist for that matter has to under-go, but once he had surpass those challenges, he’ll be much stronger than ever. The important thing is that, he’s happy facing his challenges and doing his best as always.
As for us fans, we’ll stay right behind Hyun Joong supporting him on this project all the way till the last episode and enjoy watching our grown up man as an action star! We pray for the success of Inspiring Generation, we stay positive but most of all, we pray for Hyun Joong’s safety while working on this project.
BEHIND THE CHARACTER
One of Hyun Joong fans was able to translate his statement from the press conference that I would like to share with you, as Hyun Joong stated this:
“Before I read the scenario of this drama, I met the director, as I am not capable enough to judge (* whether it fits me or not ) from the scenario. Then, I thought that I would be able to create a new character and the drama would be a good one. As you already saw the preview, I feel that I could show a manly side of myself much better than I had imagined, which made me happy that it was a good decision to choose this drama.
With emphasis on action scene, the shooting of the first action scene was taken till the dawn. When it comes to “action ” you may imagine that it is too violent/extreme, but I do hope that you will understand that “reality” is an important factor.
The director of martial arts asked me to act as if I really hit someone in the face. Instead of exchanging beats (beating or being beaten), I prefer to be the person who directs someone to do so!” (HJ 4D talk, lol)
There is no staff who struggle with nothing. Especially, they really suffer under the cold weather. ” I would say that the pearl exists in a invisible place.” Everybody really works hard.”

BEHIND THE CURTAIN
While writing this article, what kept flushing on my mind was a normal scenario behind the curtain during Hyun Joong’s concert series in Japan last year. He’s all dressed up for the show opening, at the back stage I could hear the loud cheering from the audience gallery that boost up adrenaline and excitement not only to Hyun Joong but even the production staffs! The pressure may be high but the feeling of eagerness to let the ball roll is greater!
Last minute before the show starts, suddenly he felt thirsty, suddenly he wanted to go to the rest room, suddenly he’s perspiring even he was just walking around the back stage on winter!! In concealing this natural artist’s feeling minutes before the show starts, Hyun Joong would cheerfully chat with whoever production staff was around him even what he can only hear was the loud cheering from the audience gallery!!
This time it’s gonna be a different scenario since it’s not a live stage show that Hyun Joong shall be performing. This time the singer turns to an actor in a drama series as he will again be judged by his viewers. I wonder how he’s feeling minutes before airing his drama, I wonder if he has that same tension at the back stage when he first performed his concert series in Japan last year! If only we fans can cheer for him and let our voices be heard saying “we are all watching at you and you’re doing great!”
One thing is very sure, Hyun Joong is so excited about this drama for his fans to see how he has matured and turned from the flower boy image to a real man. Indeed our Only One had grown up and was able to successfully generate more people in loving him not only as a singer and actor but as a person for what he really is.
We have a date with Kim Hyun Joong starting January 15 tomorrow night and every Wednesdays and Thursdays of the week till March this year.
We fans have been happily staying with him for years and had never left him whatever challenges he had faced. This time he’s on this fight as Shin Jung Tae for this drama and we’ll be staying right Behind the Star, Kim Hyun Joong for Inspiring Generation! It’s a date! See you!
