THIS BLOG IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR KHJ FANS ONLY
FAN MEET UPDATE
After almost a month finally Kim Hyun Joong popped out from his cocoon as he attended his Fan Meeting at Star Ave. Jamsil in Seoul sponsored by Lotte Duty Free under SK Tourism Administration. This event is actually prepared exclusively for 1,200 Japanese tourist, but there were also some foreign fans who joined in as 29 bus units took them to a city tour inclusive of the package and the highlight is this Fan Meet with Kim Hyun Joong.
He sang three songs, Your Story, Say Something, and Thank You, the rest of the show coverage was Q&A, gift giving and Hi Five, that Hyun Joong’s fans truly enjoyed the event as everyone was all happily smiling coming out from the event venue. And take note, Jaksal in all branches in Seoul were full house after the event! No doubt fans went straight to the chicken restaurant and grab a bite of Hyun Joong’s chicken speciaties!!
Hyun Joong was wearing a dark suit white shirt at the event, but what attracted me most is his coat! He looks so stunningly handsome in it! He looks fine physically, he’s blooming I would say, obviously well re-charged and seems much better than his last concert, his hair is much longer this time! But it’s really good to see him again although for some reasons I would still want him to see him perform a concert! Still can’t get enough of him but at least we have seen him that I’ll just be grateful he’s out there again!
I would like to thank fans from tweeter who have been updating us with Hyun Joong’s events, thank you so much, your effort is very much appreciated by all of us. Keep it up guys!!

Q: What did you do during this break?
HJ: Started using kakao talk w friends. (host said she saw him using a lot in airport keke) When I rest, I started sns life. Feel closer to friends using kakao talk & kakao story. Feelings can be expressed differently when using kakao compared to seeing friends face to face.
There were supposed to be a Q&A for fans to win gifts. But HJ had issues with the questions… too easy! LOL kept asking why they are so easy… PASS keke
HJ sang 3 songs: Your Story, Say Something and Thank You. Hi 5 soon. Starting from back row.
Q: Regrets for WT?
HJ: No regret. Put in full effort all the time. The only thing is we spent too much time flying. For Peru, we thought it’s summer then but actually winter. Staff brought slippers! Had to stay in hotel when not performing.
Q: How are fans fr diff areas differ?
HJ: Temperature? Climate? South American are very enthusiastic. Japanese voice is high. Korean is lower. Chinese is loud! Japanese fans responded by saying “saranghaeyo” in a low voice… HJ said it’s like saying amen in church!
Q: Many fans like IG. Any plans for more drama?
HJ: No plans for drama at this moment. If there’s good one, can start work anytime.
Q: Any role you’d like for your next work?
HJ: No specific role I like. For now, I want to act in roles of common people living daily life
Q: Can wear many costumes in such roles?
HJ: If I am in a rich man role, I can wear more costumes and thicker clothes. Many people like my role in BOF… but I don’t really like that kind of role.
HJ: If there is a good one… but I have too many things yet to happen, e.g. military service. So I will go for such work after my MS. By then I can do 2-3 work per year.
Q: Any other areas you want to challenge?
HJ: Singing and acting for now… if I come upon some other areas I am interested in, I will go for the challenge. I sing and act throughout the year. If I go for other challenges, it will be outside of my current work or even entertainment. However that may mean I need to abandon these. I do not want to do that… so concentrate on singing and acting now. Diving is just an interest. What I want to do is sing, act and my work.
Hyun Joong’s words about growing old!
When I was in elementary & high school, I thought adults were old. But now I feel not just young people are young. We are all young.
No matter 20, 26, or 29 years of age, I’ve had the same feeling… I feel no fear. Just another year. The HJ I’d envisioned when I was 20 yr old is not the same as the HJ now. Now I think about today and tomorrow. Live in the moment well.
Words for the fans:
How should I say this? Please remember the HJ moments when I perform. The happy moments when you saw me perform on stage and on screen.
Words to fans coming to Seoul to meet him:
Goes without saying that I feel thankful that you’ve come. In the area I live, there’s a rubber duck now that you may see.
I was once the Seoul Ambassador. Most people go to Myeongdong, Namsam, and other tourist places. I want to introduce some place different.
The host responded… Fans come to Seoul for HJ. He is our tourist attraction!
HJ: Mentioned that when fans said saranghaeyo during Nagoya encore, he was flustered… he needed fans to say goodbye to bring on the final song (LOL!), thus he was stuck in his response
The host wondered… shouldn’t he be happy? He said that was like a surprise gift. Whoever received it would feel happiness… so did he!

At last Hyun Joong now is at sns, which I think he before the concert series started as he finally switched to smart phone! This is good his smart phone can keep him company as he enjoys kakao talk with his friends! Although he’s not really fond of social networking ever since, but good for him, it’s better that way to keep him at peace.
May I share with you the highlights of what he had said since I know we are all craving hungry for his words during the fan meet event, in random. But I would like to share what caught my attention is this statement from the host!
“Fans come to Seoul for Kim Hyun Joong. He is our tourist attraction!”
This is very true, since this tour package is designed for tourism purposes, in inviting foreigners to visit Seoul or the rest of South Korea. In this event turned out to be exclusive for Hyun Joong’s fans and their main purpose of visiting Seoul is to see Kim Hyun Joong! It’s just so unfortunate that only 1,200 fans can be accommodated by the package, if not for sure there would be even more fans who would purchase this package tour.
I just hope the general public of South Korea would know about this event, that Kim Hyun Joong is their country’s precious gem who can bring in more tourist to their country that would mean more revenue, I really hope they would realize this, what Hyun Joong can bring in to their country. There will be another event on the 31st, this time attendees shall be Chinese. Again just like the host mentioned “Fans come to Seoul for Kim Hyun Joong. He is our tourist attraction!”
There we have it, hearing from Kim Hyun Joong, he’ll be concentrating on his music until the time he enrolls to his MS and that he’ll be working on his next album as now he already has the idea what music genre. He’ll be working on his album as we may expect coming out by next year which is barely two months from now. The guy never sleeps, he appear to be just sitting in one corner but his brain is just as busy thinking of still work! And as well all know every time he releases an album expect something different, something new.
And may I grab this space to promote his concert series Phantasm in Seoul in blue ray, DVD which shall be out to release on December 10th. So we have one month to save a penny for this, if you have not watched the entire concert then this is your chance so grab a copy as a part of our memories. Don’t miss it as Hyun Joong stated it’s the best stage in history! Amen!
After his MS, I think it will be the time he’ll be concentrating on dramas and maybe movies, although I’m sure he can’t go by without singing so probably he’ll be on to singing OST, I hope! Well this is quite clear now, as he said we don’t have to worry because he is gonna be with us to fill up more memories that we can gather.
Hyun Joong mentioned in Nagoya his fans were screaming “saranghe” before the last part of encore, I have seen his expression over the monitor at the control area and yes, he was somewhat at lost since the show was about to end and he just doesn’t want to leave the stage for his last song. I noticed that sadness in his eyes, he just loves the stage so much.
The way I observed all 11 concert series Hyun Joong always got the highest peak of his adrenaline at the encore numbers. And whenever he exits after the finale at the stage wing, he was all smiles as if he still wants to go back to the stage and rock again! If we are addicted to his performance, same with him he’s a stage addict!
For my parting shots allow me to leave you with Hyun Joong’s words to us fans.
“Please remember the Kim Hyun Joong moments when I perform. The happy moments when you saw me perform on stage and on screen.”
You will always be remembered everyday, as you have been a big part of our life….
