YEARS OF SUCCESS
May I just mention that all Japanese albums created by Kim Hyun Joong gained the GOLD record at the Oricon. Hyun Joong is the only Korean solo recording artist who was able to attain such amazing record breaker among all Korean solo artists from the time he decided to embrace his solo artist category. Until the year 2014 his albums continue to be at the top 20 most salable albums of all time since he started in his solo career.
In short, every time Hyun Joong launches his album it always gained the top-selling album on its first day launching, placing him on top of the Japanese Oricon Music Chart. And we fans made it to place him at the number one golden spot all these years, knowing he truly belongs to the top, knowing there’s no other artist who is the most deserving than him and I’m just stating this fact, nothing from the record is overrated here!
If we fans were able to maintain his albums to the top all these years, then this time we can even do better, now that we are stronger than ever. If Gemini has been gaining all the tremendous success, then we can do it with his album STILL. If Gemini is his last concert before his MS, then it’s possible that STILL may be his last album. Therefore having said this let us give our best shot by placing STILL up to the top rank number one at the Oricon Music Chart. We can do it…..

EVEN NOW (Ima demo) is the title of this song from the music video carrying single from the album STILL and viewing this video, I’m speechless and just said WOW! Without listening to the meaning of the song I knew right at once what Hyun Joong is trying to convey in this music video. May I share my humble interpretation which is just lingering in my thoughts of this video and the song Even Now, a very meaningful song in a deeper level I can grasp.
The song tells about his memories of love that he doesn’t want to forget, and saying “If it’s not you I cannot love anyone else… I don’t want to forget”. Listening to the song immediately gives me the impression the love is for someone. But as I watch this video, I was wrong. I think Hyun Joong is pertaining to something and not someone and that is his guitar and his music which is his first love.
The first scene in the video is Hyun Joong walking in a stony ground and the surrounding looks like on fire under control and guitars burning. This is at the first lines of the song that tells about his memories, the burning guitars, the abandoned keyboard, meaning it’s music that he’s pertaining to about his memories.
The next highlighted scene was Hyun Joong still walking like dreaming aimlessly in a dark hallway there was light from windows that he just glance at and just kept walking in the dark. I describe this as the ups and down in his life in attaining his dream.
The next scene is a dead-end with abandoned musical instruments and a scene focus at the microphone he’s holding in his hand as he grip tightly, while his handsome face in glaring eyes of anger, he threw his microphone towards the musical instruments! Ouch!! I describe this scene as his hidden anger to his critics. For some reasons I was affected by this scene that I felt a pinch in my heart, having the impression is he giving up? NO WAY!
The next scene is burning musical instruments into a huge fire he was looking at, and turn his back walk away head on and stoop down. I take this as a sign of his humbleness as the flames of fire shall bring him to the heights of success in a brand new much stronger Kim Hyun Joong and his brand new music. This is what we currently see in Gemini!
MY THOUGHTS EVEN NOW
We all know that Kim Hyun Joong’s first love is music. He bought his first guitar out of his part-time job that he diligently saved money for this and he literally sleeps with his guitar. That’s how much he loves this musical instrument at the very young age in high school as he started his dreams and he was able to attain it through perseverance and hard work until he reached the ladder of stardom. Music is his first love and his dream, and he cannot live without it. He’s a persistent type of person and would never give up whatever challenge may there be, he face it head on until he achieved his dream.
A dancer will die as dancer, a singer will die as a singer and a musician will die a musician. This is an artist’s point of view, meaning an artist having a talent that runs to his blood and developed it through hard work, it’s already in his system that no matter how an artist switch his career, it’s still being an artist that he’ll be day dreaming on his retirement days. With Hyun Joong it’s still music that he will ever long for, he grew from it, music is his air to breath, it’s his food and water in order to live.
Can you just imagine a person being stolen taking away from what he grew up with and love so deeply? Do you know how painful that can be? That’s how painful it was for Hyun Joong. Music is his life and that is why he doesn’t want to forget as what the song says and he will never forget his music whatever happens.
That gave me a lot of hope in the end watching this video as he sang saying “I don’t want to forget”. But throwing the microphone really hurts because I never want him to give up music. Music belongs to him and Kim Hyun Joong belongs to music that no one or anything can take it away from him, period.
Music is his first love, that one time in his life it was love that was trying to kill it and trying to take it away from him! But it was also love that revived his first love in music. And it’s happening that we currently see in Gemini, the great love from his fans made it to bring his music back to him wholeheartedly. *sigh* Such an amazing man Kim Hyun Joong is.
In this music video it ended Hyun Joong walking away from the burning musical instruments which for me perceive as turning back from the past and facing the future. As he said in the song “I don’t want to forget” yes he will never forget…. Whatever it may be we all learn from experience, the past will remain a memory BUT I believe Hyun Joong will be back to his music as a brand new musician much stronger and wiser after his MS.
Just my thoughts that I want to say this…
“Here’s a boy who has an Unforgettable story behind him and now is facing a new stage of his life…….towards the future of an Unforgettable man of all times.”
I don’t want to forget Kim Hyun Joong, STILL the only one, the greatest artist I have ever known….unforgettable, that’s what you are!
Kim Hyun Joong is back! It’s been a while since the last time I have seen his usual big genuine smiles, now I see it! He’s back and he’s happy now! Gemini is getting better and better with all those big smiles from him, more jokes, more affection to his fans as Gemini continuously gaining tremendous success from day one until now! The additional concert tickets in Chiba has been selling like hotcakes!!
The happy days of KHJ fans continue as Hyun Joong shall be performing tonight in Nagoya for second round in two consecutive nights as he rock the stage with his music in his recent performances in Yokohama, Kanazawa, Sapporo, Sendai, Nagoya all venues in full house! Rain or snow it doesn’t matter, his fans happily enjoyed the fun at the concert!
To KHJ Japanese fans….. “Thank you so much for your warm endless support to Gemini. Your greatest love to Kim Hyun Joong has been seen and felt by the whole world!”
To Kim Hyun Joong……. “Be where you are sincerely loved, respected, protected and nurtured. In short, please stay where you are, where you are needed and where you can be peaceful and happy, Japan is for you forever!!”
HEART TO HEARTS
This month is said to be the month of hearts as Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s a special day for lovers that they do celebrate their love with each other. Being a fan and being in the world of Kim Hyun Joong in a special relationship we celebrate one kind of unique LOVE and that is an unconditional love. This is the kind of love which is unselfish that we do share that common love with others. The more people love Kim Hyun Joong the merrier, the more we feel happy as we spread that love for him all over the world.
As Hyun Joong and his fans may be strangers to each other in the real world, but our hearts and his heart have a clear understanding of how why when and what binds us with him. I have this in mind as I was watching Hyun Joong performs his Gemini in all venues with a common ground called love and how his fans connect with him, as he connects with them that the rapport was so strong and so visible that indeed there is a PURE LOVE in between Kim Hyun Joong and his fans.
I have seen this scenario in all the venues where Gemini was and I’m sure I would be seeing the same scenario on the coming days of Gemini because Hyun Joong and his fans think and feel as ONE like twins…
For Valentine let this be the most special day to all of us and to him since Hyun Joong shall be having only one Valentine date and that is a date with all of his fans near or far. Treat ourselves after what we’ve been through by supporting STILL as this album is the most memorable album he had ever created, both to him and to us.
This album STILL is the greatest reward that we can give to ourselves as KHJ fan and this is the greatest reward that we can give him as our ONLY ONE…
Be a part of this valentine memory, support STILL album, let’s bring him up to the top of Oricon and say to yourself……
Kim Hyun Joong you are STILL…THE ONLY ONE!
