LOOKING BACK 2014
Every year I get to review all highlighted events I have posted in this site pertaining all about Kim Hyun Joong and his fans, that we shared a lot of good memories in this site having a common interest in the career life of our only one. This is the forth New Year review I have written since I started and I think this year is the most unforgettable I have spent writing in this site. Many ups and down, many unexpected events transpired, be it something that made us smile and made us cry. But we did stick around and shared those joy and sadness all for the love of Kim Hyun Joong.
We started with year 2014 as Hyun Joong brought to us his dream of portraying a character that he had been longing to portray in his third drama Inspiring Generation that brought a lot of attention worldwide with Hyun Joong’s transformation and well-developed skills in acting. That finally he was able to prove himself as a good actor and gained a lot of praises from the media entity and experts in the field of acting in dramas.
Right after this drama Hyun Joong attended a lot of interviews and fan meet in promoting Inspiring Generation as he proceeded to the memorable World Tour Concert Phantasm by mid year performing in 6 countries 10 cities that again brought a lot of attention to the huge success of these concert series. Again Hyun Joong showed a tremendous development in his singing and dancing skills which I was not expecting after over a year of not performing as a dancer yet he showed a greater power on stage.
At the middle of the series the most unexpected incident popped out just from nowhere by a no one blinding the public out of a so-called “scandal” made by media and a woman in Hyun Joong’s life that brought his fans to a nightmare. We all shared the dark moment out of frustration and pain that Hyun Joong suffered from being in a trial by publicity, that such pain brought his fans to a strong unity to defend him and to defend our right as his fans to support and love him. The nightmare may be painful yet it brought a stronger impact to Kim Hyun Joong’s World Tour Concert as it continued to be a huge success despite of the setback!
As soon as the great news that Kim Hyun Joong shall be performing in Japan, another negative news item about the nightmare popped out that I’m just glad it didn’t last long at the internet, instead there were news article explaining how fake those pictures used as so-called evidence in that so-called “scandal”. Hyun Joong’s detractors may have succeeded in destroying him for four months, but I still believe bad intentions never last long, and that there’s this mysterious KARMA which is just around to strike any time!
However, the scandal turned out a positive impact on Kim Hyun Joong since he even gained fans and supporters out of the so-called scandal! In this blog site alone Hyun Joong gained a huge number of new readers that this site was able to maintain until at this period!
Towards the end of the year voting polls started to come out giving us the opportunity to show our support to Kim Hyun Joong. Each of us diligently contributed our own time and effort to vote in each of those polls with a unified aim in bringing him up to the top being the best artist. We experienced the joy of winning and achieving our aim but in one prestigious award the Yahoo Asia Buzz dared to stamp down Kim Hyun Joong’s name and his fans to the extent of stepping on his and our dignity.
What Yahoo Asia Buzz did was too painful to all of us considering the effort and sleepless nights we poured on that voting polls. But we never gave up and continued voting in greater strength wherever his name appear in any voting polls. Kim Hyun Joong’s name has always been on top rank and was able to maintain until at this moment.
Inspiring Generation won the top rank as The Best Drama 2014 since the polls closed! CONGRATS to Kim Hyun Joong and to all of us fans who participated in voting that became our daily routine! Let us all keep up the good work and your effort is very much appreciated by him and I’m pretty sure of that! Trust me!
When everything seemed hopeless and scary as if the feeling of not seeing him again just haunted us with uncertainty, came a good news from Japan before Christmas that Hyun Joong indeed is coming back by the beginning of 2015. The good news lifted our spirit in looking forward to seeing him again soon! Now we are well motivated by that light from the dark tunnel as we close the year 2014 with a big smile on our lips and more love to Kim Hyun Joong.
A few days before Christmas, another surprise came as he started to surface from nowhere like one incident at Busan the Luxbene store inauguration and his photos were all over the internet! I said to myself, “that’s it kiddo you’re doing it right.” And take note that event was not an official one but simply being invited by the store owner whom I assume a friend who is kind enough to share Hyun Joong’s photos to his fans.
And for two consecutive nights before New Year’s Eve, Hyun Joong was spotted at one of Jaksal outlet! I remember writing in one of my articles “Happy Moments” I stated this…
“What about visiting one of your Jaksal outlets? Anyway you own the place so it cannot be called an official exposure just like in this candid pictures! Just once let your fans see you, can you?”
To Kim Hyun Joong: “Thank you for hearing from us how much we wanted to see you at least for us to know you’re ok and that you have finally moved on!”
In everything that happens to our life good or bad serves a reason towards something better than we expect. As we look back, we may never forget the pain we had but as the wound heals from that pain, we learn from what we have experienced. Let’s just say it’s a part of growing up in a stronger strength as fans of Kim Hyun Joong to stay by his side no matter what happens. I’m truly proud being a part of this fandom!
We welcome the new year 2015 filled with happy feelings of looking forward to seeing Kim Hyun Joong again…. what more can I ask for? A bright career future for him. As they said no pain no gain, we hold on to this thoughts as we continue our journey with him be it smooth or on bumpy road we travel, we shall stay together with him.
LAST WISH 2014
Despite of the setback we had and as I look back, for me it wasn’t bad at all because it was from those incidents that we have proved to ourselves how real we are in a true life of a fan, we have proved to ourselves how intense our love and concern to Kim Hyun Joong that brought us more than what to expect..
As we say goodbye to 2014, the only wish I have is to push away the nightmare to 2014 wavelength and never come back to us and to Hyun Joong anymore!! From this year I learned a lot more about media, South Korean showbiz culture, and about his haters that made me realize how an important person Kim Hyun Joong is. Because if not they would just ignore him! Remember a tree that bears good fruit is likely to be stoned done.
“Goodbye to 2014, please bring with you the bags of nightmare and don’t come back!!”
MY WISHES 2015
On my birthday in October, I was wishing to see Kim Hyun Joong on my screen and relate his side of story from the nightmare to be able to clear his name. However, this is gonna be his choice and not ours. And when the great news came out, I felt all negatives had just vanished, that I think whatever wish I got pertaining the nightmare is already irrelevant. The media and that woman including the haters got what they wanted, however as I mentioned earlier it won’t be for long and that their motives had only proven in favor of Kim Hyun Joong in so many ways.
My wish now for 2015 is that Hyun Joong may be able to achieve what he wants in his career before his MS. I know he has been wanting to share with us more memories that we can keep while he’s away and I wish he’ll be able to pursue with it in the next remaining days. And for us fans to maintain our strength we gained out of the setback and stay firm.
Once Hyun Joong is out there again, let’s be on guard and protect him. I realized we can no longer trust the media for reliable news and you know who those media outlets are, so we’ll be on our own during the next project of Hyun Joong. There may be smear campaign to encounter but let’s not others step on our foot again. Enough is enough we already had endured so much insults in 2014 than let’s start fresh for 2015 and never allow us and Hyun Joong from any form of disrespect on him and on us.
Just keep in mind YOU are not alone. Let’s do what we have to do, stamp on any obstacle that’s getting on our way until Hyun Joong succeeds. I cross my fingers that his upcoming Japan Tour and album release won’t be the last before he step in to MS.
Thank you so much to all my readers and those who have been active in my comment box thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with all of us. You just don’t know how much it helped in comforting one another during those dark moments. You have been truly my greatest inspiration in writing all about Kim Hyun Joong!
