By: LazerKim As Kim Hyun Joong started rolling up the curtain on his World Tour concert series for this year, we have seen a brand new Kim Hyun Joong right on top of the stage to share with us, a collection of his past and current music wrapped in one memorable show. He again innovated this concerts in a different approached and I must say a more impressive than ever. But the most important thing in this concert series is a higher level of development in Hyun Joong’s singing and dancing skills.
He has even much greater power on stage this time on how he captured his audience. Hyun Joong took a rest from dancing for over a year that I wasn’t expecting to see such stamina even stronger this time and had seen much further improvement both in his singing and dancing skills. It’s one great show shined by a single STAR Kim Hyun Joong, pouring out every power he got in one most unforgettable moment! Don’t fail to see it!
Hyun Joong recently released his Korean single Beauty Beauty which is now on top of the chart, go grab your copy now!! Actually he had released his dance music both in Korean (Timing, Habit) and Japanese (Hot Sun) one after the other that has been keeping him busy the past months. Grab a copy of each singles, let’s pick up all memories that we can get while it’s hot!
Since I’ve been at work mode further preparing for World Tour next stop, I haven’t got the chance to browse around to share updates with you, I’m putting up this article just for the record as a part of Hyun Joong’s journey, two important items which I should have posted weeks ago but time just kept pulling me away from here. I’m so happy to be back, as promised I’ll just pop out, so here I am!
Last year 2013 Hyun Joong performed a different concert series as a rocker singing with a live band and I was given the chance to work on those shows, that after which I was all wishing I could have another chance to work with him again. His drama came out, I became so pre-occupied on the stage production that honestly I have almost forgotten that dream I had, to work with him again. Somewhere along the way, our roads crossed again unexpectedly, and knowing this is gonna be his last dance concert, I’m truly happy to be a part of it.
May I just share, as Hyun Joong said, during one of our rehearsals “Fate comes when you encounter a person whom you cannot forget and had gone from your eye sight, in some magical way that person comes back, if so, don’t let go because it’s fate that lead you to that person.”
What he said became true to me and I’m so thankful I grabbed that chance to hold on and never let go. I will never let go of my idol again!
Hyun Joong asked, “what can I do for my fans that I can keep them company during my absence?” Since Hyun Joong has been known to us as the gentle healing idol, how I wish to be left with an album that contains all love songs which he have not created among his album collections, trying ballad songs isn’t bad at all. And it’s a great feel to have an easy listening music from Hyun Joong and his romantic side to surface, that makes me fall for him over and over again.
Among the love songs that Hyun Joong sang, for me this OST When Today Passes By is the best. So simple but it highlights the sweetness of his voice and his emotions blend together that made this song perfect! This song is very meaningful to him during his period of struggles and rising to a someone with new image.
I had the chance to carefully listened to this song during our concert rehearsals “When Day Passes By” and I didn’t realize how meaningful this song was. How I wish Hyun Joong would sing more ballad love songs like this before he leaves.
I think among many songs of Hyun Joong this song had been translated in so many different language at YouTube. May I just write the lyrics of this song, I know I’m the late bloomer here, but I just want to put this in my blog, here it goes…
When Today Passes By
I just spent an entire day, thinking only about you, blankly swallowing tears
I ran for a while because I felt like going crazy, I call out to you on the top of my lungs
I want to be by your side and protect you everyday, words I want to say to you all day
I say that I love you, I love you, I say that I hate you, I hate you, are you listening?
You’re not next to me, when today passes, will tomorrow comes? Night is coming.
Will you tell me, will you tell me when today passes? sometimes, I get SCARED
That you will get tired of this long trip and let go of me, please hold onto me
I want to be by your side and protect you everyday, Can you hear me?
Where are you right now?
I say that I love you, I love you I say that I hate you, I hate you
Are you listening, you’re not next to me, when today will tomorrow comes?
Night is coming, When today passes, when today passes, when the pain ends
A day is so long, that I’m afraid I’ll lose you, when today passes
I say that I love you I love you, I say that I hate you, I hate you,
I’m always at your side, when today passes by tomorrow will come.
If only you would know, When today passes by, when today passes by……
CONCERT STAR MESSAGE
At the concert in Seoul Hyun Joong shared his own video message to his S.Korean fans, this follows to the succeeding concert series, but it shall be shown in writing on stage screen in different languages.
I cried bucket of tears as I read this message. Sometimes it takes a lot of pain just to realize how important a person is in our life, when he or she’s no longer around, but as Hyun Joong said “Fate takes the lead……and they comes back to you with greater love…..” For those who may not have read it, here it is.
A time that’s like a dream, And to say it’s ending is regretful If it’s a dream I wish I don’t wake up from it…
If it’s ending, I wish I can turn back the time… From the beginning… All over again?
Right now I wish that this moment could be forever
Right now I will make you all feel How much I am thankful to all of you
How much I love all of you
‘To My Beauty’ Everyone!!! I love you. Thank you. And also…I always…Want to see everyone. Really, truly…
From the bottom of my heart…. Kim Hyun Joong
In my previous articles, I have always been writing that “knowing Kim Hyun Joong is the best thing that ever happened to me.” I was once down and helplessly but he lead me to this space to share my thoughts all about Kim Hyun Joong as my cure. Likewise during the time he’s down, he comes to read from here, and there he is flying on cloud nine again!
Little did I know that I’ll be meeting him again, my dream came true and just like Hyun Joong, how I wish my dream would be endless.
One day I’ll wake up, and you’ll be somewhere. But I will not stop from dreaming because I know you’ll be back soon….. I would just be waiting and stay by your side………so keep the love on stage!
Fans do come and go, but it doesn’t mean you are forgotten. Just like in this blog, the real world may be pulling me from here, but I kept coming back, knowing someone from here is waiting to read all about Kim Hyun Joong.
Keep the dreams while you’re there and we’ll be dreaming with you, don’t regret because it doesn’t end from here. In our thoughts we can always go back, because you’re leaving us with so much memories we treasured. Don’t thank us because we owe you more than you know it. We will be waiting come rain or shine, until you come back to us…
Kim Hyun Joong you are always loved and I sincerely hope you felt it somehow in my own little humble way through this blog. Thank you for being you Kim Hyun Joong, still as my ONE AND ONLY….
