This dawn at around 12AM+, he has left his 10th Story.
As sincere as it may sound, it is subjective to each. It depends on how you are going to interpret it and comprehend it and take it as it is.

멋진사람이되자 윌위라는거 좋지만 언젠간 잊혀지는거야
온리원이되자 정말 ...난 너희가 씨디 많이사는거 바라지않아 ..
그냥 지금처럼만 ...영원은아니더라도 ...순간만이라도 같이 추억을남기는게좋은거지 ㅋㅋ
알아???????너네들의 1등이 내가아니라 우리일수도있다는거 ...
말했지 ???한참전에 말했던거 ㅋㅋ기억하라항상.....
내가 언젠간 보호줄날이올꺼라고 잘보호받고이습니까??????ㅋㅋ
즐겨보자 하루하루를
멋진 하루하루를위하여 ㅋㅋ

Let's all become an awesome person yah
No.1 may be good but it will soon be forgotten someday
Let's all become the only one yah, honestly ...
I don't hope for you all to buy alot of CDs ..
Just like now will do ... Even if it won't be a Forever ... It may just be for the moment,
but it's nice to spin and leave memories together still, isn't it kk
Goddit??????? You guys' Number 1 is not Me, but instead, WE can all be that ...
I said it before right ???Quite awhile ago I did say that kk
Bear it in mind, always.....
One of these days, the day where I can give my protection will come, are you guys well protected for now??????kk
Let's enjoy it ya, each day and each day
For the sake of an awesome day after day kk

현중 :: M-Countdown 06.16 - Backstage Interview

Since there will be english subbed video of this, just share a few important points.

-this backstage interview was conducted last week at M-Countdown backstage. Questions were posed through Mnet Mcountdown Japan's Twitter account. They did this small Q&A session with HJ.

-He mentioned on his 0606 birthday, he had been busy preparing the entire day for the next day's showcase - rehearsing and all. So when he reached home, already half past 0606, but still he thought it's still part of his b'day. So later, he and his agency (KEYEAST)'s boss, both of them celebrated his 110606 birthday together by party-ing (maybe it was a physical party at his home, not sure).

-The present that left biggest impression on him was the game autobike that you see in arcades. If I'm not wrong, that was from KHJ24. It was delivered to his home, but because no place to put, he requested to deliver to his KEYEAST agency venue instead.

-Dance that he likes most, he said all. He also summarized nicknames for each dance. 'Breakdown' is the '3 Gear Dance', while 'Please' is the 'Mike Dance', whereas 'Kiss Kiss' is the 'handsign dance'. He also confirmed that 'Kiss Kiss' will be his follow-up activity. (previously, it was a rumor, not until it comes from the horse's mouth, right?)

-Fan asked him how he decides what age range is nuna/ahjumma. He said no restrictions.

-Asia Tour and overseas promo activity will be conducted. Around End-Sept ~ October he will release 2nd solo album.

-Around end-July ~ Aug, he will go over to Japan. Probably for personal fanmeet and for Playful Kiss' promo activity too.

Last but not least, the YS at the end of the video... Why did he have to bend down and creep into the lift? That was so hilarious, it got me laughing so bad.

현중 :: Article「About 4 bottles of Soju...」


Kim Hyunjoong has once again proved his status as the representative of a drinker in the entertainment circle.

On SBS Power FM 'Park Sohyun's Love Game' that was aired on the 17th June, Kim Hyunjoong shared talks on the subject 'Slightest misunderstanding that people have of KHJ', speaking "I often hear people say that I will drink wine or western style liquor and though I don't drink it often, I do drink Soju for about 3.5 bottles to around 4 bottles".

To this, he continued, "Because I debuted at a young age, there were contract terms like you cannot mention talks about 'moustache', 'first loves', 'beer', 'smoking' etc", "But because I do those talks very conveniently and easily these days, I'm no longer an idol anymore", as he even added.

On the other hand, Kim Hyunjoong has recently released his first solo album 'Breakdown' and is undergoing aggressive promotional activities.

현중 :: Why does he not use smartphones?

This is the period where smartphones are getting more and more publicized everywhere around. Indeed true that most stars these days use smartphones. Whether for promo shoots relating to work, or during free intercession breaktimes during recordings, stars have the tendency to play the games on their smartphones and or watch videos to pass time. Smartphones are certainly the effectively one of a kind tool for them to pass time.

In addition, even smartphone companies have this ongoing promotion sale for celebrities who buy from them. And so because of this, most of the stars are using smartphones. There are even some stars who have 2~3 handphones with them.

However, amidst such a trend, there are, too, stars who don't use smartphones. And he is none other than Kim Hyunjoong who's recently made his solo comeback with a new album. Kim Hyunjoong is currently using an old model folder phone. Kim Hyunjoong has also mentioned himself that he's never used a smartphone at all before. So what exactly is the reason why Kim Hyunjoong doesn't use smartphones?

Recently, Kim Hyunjoong who met up with our eNews said to this, "Smartphones are inconvenient, whereas a normal phonepiece is convenient". In fact, Kim Hyunjoong's handphone was recently spoilt and he actually got a new handphone too. Despite given the chance to, he still again selected and went for a folder phone. A related personnel from his agency has commented, "Kim hyunjoong doesn't show any kind of stark interest to any latest gadget and whatsnot", "He finds that smartphones are inconvenient and has insisted to use the original style of phone that he's always been using".

Kim Hyunjoong is a star who's almost insensitive to the latest trend at all. He doesn't play mini homepages. Twitter or even SNS*. Since he doesn't own a smartphone, it would obviously be hard for him to use SNS too. A related personnel who knows Kim Hyunjoong very well has divulged, "Rather than to say that he wants to maintain his mysterious profile, it is more apt to say that he doesn't exactly enjoy communication through the internet medium", "Kim Hyunjoong likes to share talks with people by meeting them directly and personally, rather than over the net. The matters he thinks of is not like a 1986 at all. He has trend sensitivity just like those in their 30s".

*SNS is Social Networking Service.

Backstage Interview

현중 :: 06.10 Hanteo Charts - No.1 Real-Time , No.1 Daily , No.1 Most Searched

11-06-10 14:10

Singer Kim Hyunjoong's first mini album 'Break Down' is currently receiving feverish popularity for it.

On the 8th when Kim Hyunjoong officially released his album in the morning, and right until this moment (10th Jun, 2:00 PM), on the Hanteo Charts, in the Album Sales category, his No.1 status is currently holding a 3 times and bigger difference with the No.2 on the Real-Time Charts and the Daily Charts. In addition, he is also the No.1 Most Searched Real-Time keyword recorded - which is 3 thrones for him recorded altogether.

The representative charts of Korea - the Hanteo Charts, takes into record of sales data from its nationwide merchant outlets as well as the nation's biggest few discography shopping malls, and added on with sales data from medium and small internet/online merchants to get the calculation for Real-Time charts and rankings.

Kim Hyunjoong's agency KEYEAST told about this on the 10th, "Rather than putting it across that album sales have results as follow, which focuses mainly on digital singles and title tracks, is to tail behind the transformation of the music industry (in order to fit into it), it is more evident of Kim Hyunjoong's hard work put into for the full album as being verified and appreciated by fans - as proved through the results".

On the 9th, Kim Hyunjoong has since begun his official and luxurious comeback through Mnet MCountdown with his oozing charisma on stage.

Intro (Let Me Go)



현중 :: Talks about 501 on MBC『Knee-Drop-Guru』

This programme was aired yesterday on MBC.

This version varies a little from the one on allkpop. Allkpop holds a larger standard deviation from what is deemed the 'original content'. . .

Kim Hyun Joong "All that SS501 could do together when united had almost all been shown"

Kim Hyun Joong has explained about the background of how SS501 went onto their respective roads.

In the episode of MBC 'Golden Fishery - Knee-drop Guru' aired on June 8, Kim Hyun Joong's recently made his comeback as a solo singer poured about his troubles 'Feels like all of mine I have is like a bubble', as he also displayed his 4-dimensional charm.

In the past where he appeared on 'Radio Star', he ever disclosed "If the agency doesn't chase us away I don't have intention to leave too", to this, Kim Hyun Joong gave a further explanation - "It was when we had only 5 months remaining of our contract left at that time".

He added, "That time was when we had one more album planned for release. That time was a period where I had not discussed about the agency's problem with our members yet", "However after our album activities ended, I talked to our members about it", as he came frank.

Kim Hyun Joong continued, "Didn't we already almost shown all that we SS501 could do as one. I told them it is not a disband, it's just that if we were to go on each of our paths for time being it'd seem like a not bad thing too", "After we have discussed it out with our members, eventually, we have decided to go on the path that best fits with our personal shine/color", as he added.

With regards to the issue on his former agency's CEO collapsing due to deterioration of health, Kim Hyun Joong said, "As far it's concerned, the most fortunate thing would be that I managed to say 'Sorry' to him before he collapsed. Should I have not been able to say that, I couldn't have came out", "If I happen to get No.1 for any drama or any music programme, I definitely want to say something like 'Sajang-nim, I've done well. Please be healthy' to him".

SS501 :: 6주년 입니다.. 6th Anniversary...

벌써 6년이 되었다..
할말이 많아서 조금이라도 모자란 것이다..
우리 다섯이 젤 멋진 남자들.. 6년이 지나가도 엊그제같은날...
시간이 엄청 빠르다구요..
옛날의 그들이가 이제 훌륭한 사람이라 되었답니다.
정말 뿟뿟합니다.
사실이 생각해보면 시간이 제한된 건 아니라
사람 나름대로 멋모르는 사이에
당신이 지혜가 있는 한 사람을 만들것 같습니다.
저희 다섯이 그골을 다쳤었지요? 그리고 목표로 진행중이 오니...
그래서 영생님의 한마디를 인용한다면
"SS501! 다들 팀이름의 뜻을 까먹지 마라"고 기억해주시면
결국엔 우리 꼭 최고 Number 1가 되게 가능합니다.

6월8일...앞으로의 이 날처럼... 우리 모두 한 자리에서 모여라, 모여라!!

2011.06.08 (수)

It's already 6 years..
There's so much to say that if only a little is to be said, it would be insufficient..
Our most awesome five men.. Even as 6 years have past, it's just like yester days...
Time flies too much...
Those boys of the past yester years have since transformed into truly fine ones.
Really proud and honorified.
To be honest, Time is not restricted to anything
It is dependent on each person, before he/she knows it,
he/she would have become/formed a person of wisdom in no time.
Like our case, our five have reached that goal isn't it? and working towards it...
And so, quoting YS' one line,
"SS501! Let us all not forget the meaning behind our team's name",
if we bear that in mind,
eventually, it's certainly possible to become the best and Number 1, surpassing all other barriers.

June 8... Just like this day on any other year... We all be standing fixed in one place,
Unite, Unite!!
