What’s up? Kim Hyun Joong is in the kitchen cooking something! Well, let him be, rest assure the guy never neglect his music as we very well know that for a fact, and no matter what happens, he’ll be singing just around the corner! Many of his fans have been posting his old pictures and that really makes me smile, remembering how he was in those years that it feels it was just like yesterday! Are we now in the memory lane? Then let’s have it for old time sake because I’m sure we all do miss him so much!
In Hyun Joong’s documentary, back in old days when he was just starting, during one of his autograph signing he would play around affixed his signature and draw a face with a mustache!! I was all laughing about it! And another, on his first pictorial session, Hyun Joong finds it hard to smile, so his first few pictures had those smiles by forced that even looks funny!! Who would think those smiles would turn to killer smiles that just heals all stress whoever sees it?
And those are even so contagious, that makes me smile back even in those photos! Kim Hyun Joong is one artist or the only one artist that I shall never forget, specially him as being my healer back in 2011 till the present. His life has been an open book to his fans and the more you get to know him better, the more it inspired me in getting up from where I have been and currently still knowing him better as a real star that doesn’t possess even a single superstar complex in him consistently in years. He simply puts his fame to his heart and not to his head.
APPRECIATION FROM A STAR
There are artists specially big stars do have a secretary to read and correspond to many fans who writes to them. May I just share a brief experience. Every time Hyun Joong travels on official trip for a project, at the airport specially from Incheon or Gimpo, there were many fans who handed to him letters and presents. In one of his concerts during one rehearsal break, he was sitting in one corner of the stage, holding a few letters and read those which was handed to him by his manager. I was at the stage wing and I said, oh lots of love letters! Someone from my back said it’s from his fans.
I didn’t say anything further just went on with my work, but at the back of my mind I was saying, so it’s true he really reads from his fans as he mentioned it in one of his interviews. And so for those who doubt if he knows about his fans strong support and love I think he doesn’t doubt about it, aside seeing what he had in his previous concerts.
Many fans give him presents, if you remember he even mentioned to refrain from giving him expensive gifts. Does he wears those? I think it’s only the giver who can say this. And back in 2012, indeed a group of fans gave him sports outfit and accessories from different group, if I’m not mistaken which he wears and stated they gave those presents. Hyun Joong knows how to appreciate even the smallest gesture of kindness, he’s also a human being like us who can feel.
FANS AND STAR RELATIONSHIP
If you really love a person you believe and trust, well that goes for me 100% with no doubt. In an idol and fan relationship how would we explain the kind of love we have? Hyun Joong doesn’t know who his fans are personally, while we know much about him. It’s unconditional love that for me I don’t need to be recognized in giving love to him. I believe that’s how a fan and idol relationship is, whether we sees him as a family member, a son or a brother or simply as an artist, all I know is that there’s a strong connection between Kim Hyun Joong and his fans. I have seen this during his recent concert series.
Many people couldn’t understand how it is to be a fan and I’m not expecting them to do so unless they become a fan of a particular artist specially being a fan of Kim Hyun Joong whom we have been following all these years. Until now I still believe what a veteran fan stated to the media something like “Once KHJ cast his magic spell on anyone, there’s no way out from that spell.” This is true to me. I tried to get out from that net that I thought I could, but I came back, even more addicted to him than before!
It may took time before I came back to writing and I thought I lost my readers, but I’m just glad some came back to my comment box, some became my silent readers, and meeting another new readings. But just the same, no matter how the real world takes us from Hyun Joong, there will always be one instance that we go back to him. As I have said, never underestimate the power Kim Hyun Joong has, no matter what happens.
Part of being a fan’s ordeal is the period when you miss your idol, that’s very natural specially if you’re the type of fan who has been following him and keeping with updates. And this is also what I admire KHJ fans who are at the tweeter and FB active with their postings tirelessly even just pictures of Hyun Joong can make my day really good! During his IG airing, for 3 months his fans have been used to watching him at least twice in a week, and to deal with IG withdrawal after its airing. But at least we can watch this drama over and over again.
Then followed by his concert series that again we became addicted to watch him on stage, in fact he had just left the venue after the concert and yet his fans already missed him! And as for me, going back to those venues where he performed was even harder! Believe me, I was seeing the same stage but different subject in front of me made me really stare at empty space during work that needs a lot of push over to focus on whatever is on that stage! Still seeing as if he was still there performing and enjoying!
Does Hyun Joong feels the same way as we do? Who knows?? BUT in an artist point of view, artist like Kim Hyun Joong is a stage addict, specially performing a successful show, it’s so natural for an artists by heart to be longing to be on stage over again. They too experience withdrawal syndrome, specially the recent concert which was done in series that every week he’s there singing, dancing and enjoying the show with an excellent rapport with his fans.
Then suddenly finale comes when he’s still on the height of performing. That’s how it feels being on stage. I was happy though that two different events had followed immediately after the series which served as the chaser!! And he enjoyed it as much as his fans did. *sigh* Wishing there would be more in every after concert, just can’t get enough of Kim Hyun Joong! A natural punch line from every single fan who watched his concerts, be it from the venue or afar!
FALLING FROM MISSING
Now we’re facing each other missing him again! What shall we do?? Talk about him! I already did, now it’s your turn!! As far as I know there’s something to look forward to for this month, still. Now I can’t help asking, are we prepared for the longer WAIT?
I’m still refusing to think about the longer wait, but at this time I’m keeping my fingers cross hoping Hyun Joong will still have the chance to do what he ever wanted, and that is to perform that last concert before his MS. I’m really praying very hard for this, even just once. Phantasm should have been the last, but I don’t think it’s enough, or is it safe for me to say, it’s never been enough? Because every time he’s out there the more we crave for more from him. They said…”Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”……
……..BUT missing Kim Hyun Joong keeps me falling……. to addiction for him on stage!
The dark sky will never be brighter without the biggest star!!
