Kim Hyun Joong…[article] PERFECT PERFECTIONIST

Image

By: LazerKim     The new born year had finally come, on New Year’s day we tend to make a list of resolutions on how we can change ourselves for the better. Kim Hyun Joong is no difference from us. In one of his interviews on a talk show he mentioned that people thinks and says Kim Hyun Joong is perfect, but he couldn’t accept that for himself. He said he’ll work harder to be worthy of his nickname Mr. Perfect given to him by some of his fans. But what is there to be changed in him?

Kim Hyun Joong is blessed with very good looks, multiple talents, excellent personality, a fashion icon  and blessed with a big heart specially to the needy. But he’s right nobody is perfect no matter what. He said he still lacks a lot in his ability that needs to work it out to improve. Knowing the guy is such a perfectionist he wouldn’t mind working night and day so as to give a perfect performance consistently. He said in his Taiwan interview, one aspirant should be the first to wake up and the last to sleep. Well, that’s obviously what’s he’s been doing whenever he hits the rehearsal hall.

Change in a person doesn’t happen overnight even there’s a long list of New Year’s Resolution in front of you, as far as bad habit is concern. Ability needs strong determination to develop and I believe Hyun Joong has that kind of determination, patience, hard work and acceptance to its result.  Judging from his one on one interviews, he’s a type of person who loves challenges, an adventurer who loves to try anything new, a perfectionist who wouldn’t mind dancing and singing till dawn just to perfect his piece and he’s the type who rise up stronger whenever he stumbles down.

Hyun Joong came back stage stronger as a solo artist, resulting to remarkable popularity rocket high in a span of six months. There will be more challenges, more struggles and obstacles ahead of him this year 2012 but I believe he had already built a stronger courage and confidence to face his obstacles  head on. He doesn’t relax no matter what amount of awards he kept receiving, it served as an inspiration for him to keep going and spread his music.

It’s only Hyun Joong who knows what changes he ought to be doing for himself in 2012. He’s practically holding his four aces, his fans are ever faithful to him which I admired so much. And may I say Hyun Joong gives them his 100% importance and I admire the relationship his fan network and himself  had created in or out of his country. Hyun Joong ended the year 2011 being in the company of his fans and starting the year 2012 will be a fan meeting which means he’s starting his year with the company of his fans.

While we were busy preparing for year end 2011, Hyun Joong had been busy preparing his storage of ideas for 2012.  But remember this guys, whenever he’s in a silent mode, he’s cooking something for you, but be patient, he’s a perfectionist, he won’t take the risk to go out there with flaws head to foot. As his interview with Guerrilla Date, he said there was a slight delay in launching his first album because he wants a perfect come back.

And so he did, history repeats itself, he’s very fond of giving big surprises to his fans. Do you still remember how you felt when he surprised you in his black short hair, muscled body built in black leather suit??   So I repeat, the guy has a big storage of ideas, if he’s not Mr. Perfect then he’s a perfect perfectionist to make sure you’ll be surprised enough to give you a heart attack in 2012!!!

This is how much he loves his fans!! Well, to prove him right, quite recently he surprised you by a kissing act with After School group, didn’t he?? Were you not surprised if not shock by that act?? It was all over the blogs the following morning, that I want to kill the girl at first sight!!! LOL.

Image

And so for 2012, there will be no new year’s resolution, because we already know Hyun Joong will just pop out from nowhere in his new image or if not it’s gonna be something you haven’t seen from him in the past. Base on history I can only assure you of one thing, he’ll give you a perfect shock!!

And with that, let’s support his ideas. He’ll not give a blind show just because he already had captured your interest, instead he’ll give you a higher dosage of it. He’ll make another noise for those who haven’t heard him call in 2011. Let’s be there with him because he’s doing it for us. What have we got to lose, in my experience knowing the guy lead me to a new frontier of learning from his story. In fact the longest drama I’ve ever watched is Kim Hyun Joong’s story.

The question now is not what is in store for Kim Hyun Joong this year because he already has it in his hands. But what is in store for us from Kim Hyun Joong this 2012.

Image
I trust Hyun Joong, no matter what change he does in his outlooks he’s still handsome, no matter what he does it’s cute. He had already proven himself that I’m not following him blindly.
For the new fans like me, give it a try to know more about him, you’ll find a lot of interesting facts about him and learn. You’ll laugh with him, you’ll sing with him and sometimes you’ll cry with him because this guy has a lot of deep sentiments in his heart that you’ll only find it out from his honest heart………Happy New Year!!!……..Happy Kim Hyun Joong year!!!

Kim Hyun Joong…[article] MEMORIES 2011

Image

By: LazerKim          There were about six articles which I have written in 2011 which are not officially recorded in my file and this is one of those articles. For the record I would just like to re-post this which was written in December 31, 2011. Here’s the article way back:

From this hour on, we start our count down as the year 2011 slowly fades away to welcome the new born year. But before we bid farewell to 2011, let’s look back and reminisce the most unforgettable events that Kim Hyun Joong left our hearts for this year. Or maybe simple memories that will always remind us of Hyun Joong. What are those that sticks to our mind about him that makes us laugh, cry, or even hurt us one way or another being a fan? And for you, what are the most significant events transpired this year that you can never forget about Hyun Joong?

We only get to see KHJ on TV, videos though internet, and we only have known him though news updates, articles written by those who have personal experiences of watching his live concerts or live TV appearances and yet he’s close to our hearts, even we do not have any personal knowledge as to who he really is.

Kim Hyun Joong’s  popularity rating this year had risen remarkably, so I’m sure many of you out there had started following him this year. What made you glued your eyes to him??

Image

As for me, when I first saw him promoting his first solo album Breakdown as his come back stage project highlighted his singing career. I was star strucked by his transformation in black hair, well built muscle in black leather suit and his powerful charisma magnetized my whole system that until now I have not gone over with his Breakdown image even he had already changed to blonde, I still could not forget that flower boy who had turned to a real man, that shake the entire continent and dominated the billboards.   For me it was his best character ever.

Hyun Joong became my sole interest that taught me a lot of things that i have not experienced in the past. This year may be his best year as he stepped up as a solo artist proving himself in bringing out the best in him as a singer and dancer.

Image

I barely know Kim Hyun Joong, I know nothing about his behind the scene true self. I wasn’t even aware about his 4D personality until I came to watched him when he guested at Mnet MUST, The photo above was one of his turning nuts that every time I watched this video which is over a dozen times, I still laugh at it. He was actually describing himself if he gets drunk he sings crazy!! LOL he was so cute!!! I can’t imagine a very handsome gentleman would be this way whenever his 4D personality attacks!!! Gosh he’s really something!!!

Image

Then after throwing himself like crazy, at the same show, Hyun Joong sang a very beautiful ballad “Fortunate” (Dahaemida). I actually fell in love with this song, I can never forget how he sang this song filled with love and emotion, his voice coming from the depth of his soul had touched my heart that even I could not understand the song lyrics since it’s in Korean, but the melody and his voice gave me an unforgettable feeling of being loved. I do wish he would have another chance to sing it again next year. And he looked very handsome as he sang it, would make you fall head over heels in love with this guy.

Image

In another talk show “Guerrilla Date”, showed his candid honesty in a funny way but totally expressionless as if he was casually talking to a friend. The interview by host went like this:

Host: Did your agent paid your rehearsal fees and commercial modelling job?

KHJ: Yes

Host: Did you gave the money to your parents?

KHJ: No, I paid for my taxes, it was huge amount so I set money for it, now I’m broke!!

Host: You must be very close with your boss Bae Yong Joong, what do you usually talk about?

KHJ: We talk about history of his women, and laugh about it, the normal men’s conversation.

Host: Both you and Bae Yong Joon are batchelors, right? What can you say about it.

KHJ: It’s alright with me to be bachelor……because I’m still young ….but Bae Yong Joon Hyung should get married!!!

Host: What can you say about your fans?   Say something to them..

KHJ: I have many adult (noona) fans that would say “Hyun Joong ah I’m going to marry you” don’t say that.. if you meet a good man, then I hope hurry up and marry him!! What I feel good about noona fans if they come to my concerts when they’re pregnant……I just really like it…come with big bellies…and give shock to their babies!!!

The host couldn’t control his laughter, he was laughing the entire interview!!  I can’t forget this talk show, that sometimes out of nowhere it just pop out of my mind and start laughing by myself every time I get to remember this.

Image

The photo above was another funny talk show from Strong Heart, although it was televised sometime in 2009 which I have only watched recently, but it’s one of my most unforgettable. Hyun Joong here was talking about his high school days, when his teacher asked his class to compose a long poem of about three pages. KHJ was honest enough to say he’s not much interest about studies, but at least tried.

Anyway, he was thinking of how he can compose a poem, then he thought of using the lyrics of a song about mothers and he included the adlib part of the song that says yayaya that would make three pages long. And so he wrote the song lyrics instead and submitted it to his teacher. The song was about a mother who passed away that Hyun Joong was able to convinced his teacher that he actually wrote a true to life poem about Hyun Joong’s own mother.

After sometime he had forgotten about the poem, his teacher invited their class parents to come to school. And so he told his mother to come over, but his teacher whom he convinced that his mother had passed away thought that Hyun Joong brought his step mother. And because the poem was all a lie, Hyun Joong was badly punished by his teacher!!!

Image

This photo above was taken during a one on one interview with Lee Sora Second Proposal. Hyun Joong talks about his first love here and his lack of self expression or interaction with others. One thing I couldn’t forget in this interview was his message to his fans. As he stated and translated as

“I hope that I will always be the kind of person whom you will not be criticized for being my fan. But if you happen to meet another person will say I understand. Please believe in me and I will work hard”.

I will never forget  this message to his fans being truthful to his words, he worked hard to bring out the best in him, to be deserving of their love and support.

Image

This photo was taken on June 7, 2011, a day after Hyun Joong’s birthday, launch his first solo album Breakdown showcase attended by some 4,000 fans. In this photo Hyun Joong broke down to tears while reading his letter to his fans. This was the most memorable event for me about Hyun Joong, he was able to disclose what he felt during the time he was preparing for his solo album. He said he was scared to be doing this alone by himself, then he could only watch his fans having conflicts and that he couldn’t do anything and being helpless made him feel small. I was in tears while watching him read the letter but I admired his courage to humble himself in front of his fans. He’s such an amazing guy.

A press conference was held on the same day, and he stated that he worked harder to make better music to move away from the shadow of SS501. It wasn’t easy at all to fill up a big stage all by himself   the pressure was too much to bear but he was able to build his courage to surpass the challenges he had faced before he finally stepped up to his stage.

Image

From this time on till the year ends, anything that Kim Hyun Joong touches or work on any project turns in a magical success. He thank his fans by creating a memorable love song Marry Me in a digital single as his Christmas present before the year ends.

 Kim Hyun Joong has what it takes to be a superstar. He may not be the best singer or actor but he possess a certain power of charisma beyond comparable to any Kpop artist. People will always remember him for what he really is because he has never pretended to be someone else he’s not.

These are the memorable moments that for me will remain unforgettable about Hyun Joong. And lastly, knowing an artist like him is my most precious memory. This year I had a great time listening to his music everyday, I had a bunch of good laughs every time his 4D attacks, I had such fun seeing him dance and I shed tears with him in sadness and joy of his success.

To Hyun Joong, thanks for being you……Kim Hyun Joong.

Kim Hyun Joong…[article] YEAR-END SEALED W/A KISS

Image

By: LazerKim        This morning as I check on Kim Hyun Joong’s undate, this photo came in front of my monitor, and it’s all over the blogs!! I was shock, of course the first thing came to my mind was who could be this girl he’s kissing?? Is this real??

As I went over the other photos and videos from You Tube I was burning with curiosity, just to find out it was a part of a dance with Hyun Joong and female group After School performed last night at the Year End Presentation.!!!    The kissing part looks real though but as I watched the video in slow mo, it’s fake!!  But she’s such a lucky girl to be hugged!!!

The performance was good, sensual, too tricky but I’ve noticed Hyun Joong was a bit uncomfortable maybe because of the kissing part, but still he outshine the girls even they were indeed beautiful and sexy. Hyun Joong’s strong presence on stage can easily swallow other artists beside him.

Image

As always, everytime Hyun Joong appear on stage he has something new, his new hairstyle looks very handsome in short, still blonde hairstyle that covered half of his face. Although he has lost a bit weight again, well who would not if he’s working nonstop since the midyear, he’s been running here and there promoting his first two min albums. He probably be working until the last day of the year as he bid farewell to 2011.

Image

Kim Hyun Joong performed the remix version of Breakdown as another surprise to his fans dancing and singing in another Breakdown version being well applauded by his co artists. Well who would get tired of Hyun Joong as he always brings out the best in him consistently. Actually, I haven’t been over with his original Breakdown image in his black short hair which I really miss, now here he comes in another new image!!!

Image

Kim Hyun Joong indeed sealed the year 2011 with a kiss, leaving the year with many memorable events pressed in his fans heart.  The busy fans voting for him nonstop on different polls, we watched him go up stage to receive well deserved awards of honor were the happiest moments a fan can ever experienced. He made them proud for his hard work and for so many times he had proven himself worthy of their love and endless support.
