Where is Kim Hyun Joong? How is he? What’s keeping him up? I miss him so much! Quite recently these questions from Kim Hyun Joong fans have been lingering at Tweeter after Yahoo Awards Nights event. All the while I thought this was nothing new since I have gone used to a pattern that every time Hyun Joong wraps up a project particularly doing concert, he takes a break from the public eye.
This time it seems different, I was already expecting a longer waiting period than usual. Obviously we don’t hear from him nor from his agent, as if the guy doesn’t exist at all! I’m just thankful to those people close to him who posted some of his photos that are not meant for publicity.
After Yahoo Asia Buzz voting and awarding, I was surprise that all of a sudden talks about the nightmare just popped out from nowhere!! There’s even an article that talks about “2014 Celebrity Scandals” and Hyun Joong came in the first in the list as expected again in twisted information! I can just sigh thinking that no matter how we bring out the truth people still believed the trash news. Oh here we go again! And that’s really so frustrating!
I’m pertaining to this article (link below), and this is the second article I have read with similar topic. (Noya thanks for sharing!)
At this point allow me to iron out some matters after the nightmare, to fully understand why we barely see Hyun Joong around. Speaking in general, any artist who may have been at the same situation being a victim of a scandal, here’s what to expect. First, it’s expected that he will be away from the lime light for a certain period of time. Second, producers would be hesitant in providing projects to the artist. Third, media would be eyeing on him. Fourth, he’ll be in public scrutiny. These are the normal repercussion after a scandal in any artist.
In some artist’s contract with his agent, keeping a good moral character and good public image is stipulated in this contract. Let’s just say granting Hyun Joong may have failed to abide on this area of the artist’s contract with his agent and was given a temporary suspension due to the scandal which is a natural ruling in the contract, whether he’s guilty or not, he was a victim of bad publicity. May I just clarify this is just my personal opinion on such artist’s contract depending on the nature of contract between artist and agent.
Under such circumstances, Hyun Joong is likely to face the same situation as other artists who was also a victim of scandal. BUT is it the end of the world? Is Hyun Joong’s career over and done? NO definitely NOT, for as long as his fans are there supporting and waiting for him that for me he is still an unbreakable star that no one can beat him, my journey with him isn’t over yet. In fact I still believe he will come out even stronger than ever.
I’m done with blaming KE for their irresponsibility since I have already written a lot more articles attacking them and I’m no longer expecting anything from this company anymore. And yes it’s better for them to remain silent, it’s too late to hear from them again, as the damage had already been done and had cause a lot of disappointment to Kim Hyun Joong fans. No matter what they do to cover up their shortcomings, it won’t change anything, not unless I can see Hyun Joong right in front of my screen again!
Somewhere along the way during the nightmare, it was clear to me where the faults fall and we know very well how such manipulation from the media and that woman conspired in destroying Kim Hyun Joong. I still have this thought of “how I wish to bring back that period and do the right move.”
Past is past meant to be forgotten but maybe not for me, neither would I want to forget otherwise I won’t learn anything from that past. I was just a spectator four months ago during the nightmare and what I would like to share with you is my wishful thoughts as I bring myself back in time at the same spot four months ago with the question “If I were Hyun Joong’s agent, what would I do during that nightmare period?” Here are my wishful thoughts.
If I were Hyun Joong’s agent, here’s what I want to do…. First move, right after the scandal news came out in Aug. 20th, and after gathering info from Hyun Joong on what transpired between him and that woman, get a good lawyer, think carefully, act and move fast that every minute counts to respond within 5 hours after the news came out. If I were his agent I would face the media with my own video recorded in releasing statement pertaining the alleged accusation. By this way words cannot be twisted by the reporters that even the public, and the fans can interpret. Provide warning on libel to any malicious unbalance reporting of media.
Second, that time those photos so-called evidence was released 7 days after the news exploded, get out again to counter attack those so-called evidence. A lot can be done in 7 days! Obviously even at first sight on those photos spelled a lot of loop holes! At least say something to defend, just by the fact those photos were out there was already offensive. As far as I remember, the police said the only evidence they have is the statement from A.
Third, I would push Hyun Joong to face the camera and state his testimony after he had gone from the police station. By this way again media would not be able to twist his words. As an agent of a star I should consider that my company name clearly represented by Kim Hyun Joong and therefore I have to do everything in my power to protect my name and his neck, instead of running away that gave me a clear impression of being a coward! I think everyone at KE had forgotten that Hyun Joong was a victim of trial by publicity. Go by the flow on high tide and don’t allow yourselves to get drown!
WILD THOUGHTS, HIGH TIDE
Fourth, if I were his agent during that nightmare he was at the middle of completing his concert series, I would further promote the concert even much louder as if nothing happened and expose him further about the success of each concerts. This strategy is reversing the negative to positive, “innocent until proven otherwise.” so why should I stop?
Lastly, if I were his agent I would go after that woman and media who released those photos. If I really care about my company since Kim Hyun Joong is a big part of it, I have to protect him first and foremost. Win or lose at least I did my part as his agent in protecting him. You don’t push a member of your own family to the quicksand just to save your own neck!
Big stars or any high profiled personalities are so close to controversies, scandals and malicious bad publicity that I suppose every artist’s agent is fully equipped with this knowledge on how to handle such situation in protecting their managing stars against bad publicity. That these agents should always be alert and prepared any time. This is nothing foreign or new to these agents I suppose!
Let’s just say it’s Hyun Joong’s choice to take this nightmare by himself, however agent is always above the artist by authority. If I were his agent I would give him a real spanking and do what I say, face the camera and talk!! Do not apologize to a woman who only seek your attention, and just meant to destroy you!!
This is just my wild thoughts sharing it with you!! I’m not saying I tolerate wrong doings, NO definitely not. What I’m saying is, there were a lot of opportunities to dig out the truth during that time, knowing that woman lied from the very start. Instead of what we have until now which are all twisted news about the nightmare! Is this fair?
These thoughts I stated above may not be within the SK showbiz culture, but who cares about culture in saving an artist’s future? In this generation sometimes bending out from culture is better in teaching the public about the trash news they read that made them believe before thinking instead of, THINK before believing!
Going back to the nightmare, and seeing from those photos of so-called evidence may look real without thinking. But with those photos seem to be serious allegations, these people should have asked themselves, if this is for real, why is it that the complaint was drop if these were serious allegations? And from the police side saying there’s no substantial evidence to these allegations to file a case in the court of law is enough reason to drop the charges.
Let’s face reality, Hyun Joong was not the only artist who have experienced being a victim of a scandal that he’s not even found guilty! There are a lot of artists out there who have experienced it and they are still at the lime light. I’m not here to give you any false hope but simply stating facts about reality. However, some may say SK has a different culture since SK is one of the most conservative country in Asia. Fine! Primitive in culture I would say, but their media is one big trendy fox in destroying their own Korean artists!
I have been a Korean drama addict that introduced Kpop or Korean music to my life until I ended up a huge fan of Kim Hyun Joong. In watching Korean dramas and American movies, some of those actors whom I have watched had also experienced some scandals in the past. But I still watch their dramas and movies. I used to listen to American music that many of those musicians have their own stories, still I listen to their music. I said this in one of my articles and saying it again. An artist private life good or bad has got nothing to do with how I want listen to their music or has got nothing to do with my watching their dramas or movies. It’s not their personal lives that I’m buying!
Just the same in admiring Kim Hyun Joong as an artist, I like his music, I like his dramas I like attending his concerts and his personal life has got nothing to do with what entertains me. I don’t see any reason why I should change my views about him as an artist to begin with. I enjoyed his concerts and I would still put him on my top priority as “must watch” list of concerts to go. He’s not my boyfriend, he’s not my lover nor my husband to be affected by his personal life through this scandal which he’s not even found guilty of the alleged assault he was accused of. So who cares whoever I want to support?
Another reality to face is that this world is full of hypocrisy! This goes not only to SK since there are a lot of hypocrites on-line obviously not even Koreans, but people from around the world who claims to be “righteous”. Righteous hypocrites I would say who calls Hyun Joong a woman beater! Unfortunately, these people are wide readers of tabloids obviously like frogs who would easily jump to judgement before thinking. Oh I can still remember, as soon as this Ms.A stated she just wanted an apology, these frogs immediately turned upside down doubting on her motives that I can only laugh at!!
THINK before judging, that’s the moral lesson in this case. Obviously that woman was not after justice but simply to revenge and to destroy Kim Hyun Joong, period. And so that concluded the nightmare, still with the thoughts, the truth always prevail!
ENJOY THE GAP
While we wait, keep up with our precious time on-line by voting, and I guess this is the most practical way we can do instead of feeling frustrated over future plans of Hyun Joong which is not even us fans who can decide on that area. Let’s stay contented, enjoy each other’s company, talk about him, review his dramas, video footage, and if you have further time to spare you can go to YouTube and report those insects there specially at KHJ official channels particularly Timing and his latest promo video clip of World Tour 2014.
We have now a long list of voting polls and its links below after this article, for those who have not tried voting please feel free to vote and experience. This can help us ease that empty feeling of missing him in his absence. It’s like playing games of horse race that you can enjoy! I guess this will help us divert our mind to a more enjoyable activity which is still connected with Kim Hyun Joong since we still have that aim of bringing him up there on top of the polls. Some of those polls may not be for publicity but the participants or fans from other nominees can see who has a better fandom among all the stars being nominated.
Allow this voting be our daily routine every time we search for Hyun Joong at the internet. It may take time before we can hear about him again so might as well enjoy the gap while he’s not around to keep him closer to us even we don’t see him. Let us divert the negative vibes to positive and keep those smiles while we vote! If the thoughts of nightmare strikes our mind again, you may bring it here, feel free using my comment box and let’s talk about it just to bring it out from our chest and smile again! That’s life we have now for four months since the nightmare.
At this point, nothing else really matters being a fan of Kim Hyun Joong, knowing he is loved by millions worldwide and nothing can ever change that!
