‘Flower boy’ Kim Hyun Joong will be singing the OST for his MBC drama ‘Playful Kiss’.
On the 31st, in a phone interview with Newsen, Playful Kiss OST’s production team Sponge Entertainment Lee Sang Mok nim revealed, “Kim Hyun Joong recorded not long ago for the male lead’s solo theme, it’s a sweet ballad track”.

In addition, “Because it’s the theme of the male lead himself, instead of having others sing the song, it will be better if Kim Hyun Joong sings it himself, and this was recommended by Hwang In Roi PD nim, to which Kim Hyun Joong agreed readily”. Not just that, “HyunJoong doesn’t have any free time because of his very tight schedules that nests through nights, but even if he may be very tired, he still gave up his sleep and eventually finished recording for the song safely”, “Instead, I encouraged him that concentration in the morning will achieve better results”, showing his praise for HyunJoong.

“The moment news about Kim Hyun Joong participating in the OST came out, calls from media in Japan and Taiwan surged in almost immediately, and suddenly, we just realized how Kim Hyun Joong’s popularity was so real”, he also expressed. This solo track of HyunJoong’s will be released mid of next week.

Kim Hyung Jun told the reporter: “Up til last year, i am ok with fans saying that i am cute. But this year, i changed my mindset, hoping that fans will praise me as being charismatic and manly.

He spoke in English, seriously: ”I’m a Man”.

Kim Hyung Jun proudly clenched his fist, stating recently he is keen in working out in the gym. He also watched quite a number of dramas, learning how the male leads protray their mature side. He chuckled that he likes to watch kissing scenes, as he felt that it is very manly.

Kissing scene with female actress? Kim Hyung Jun: Very shy!

However, even though likes to see others kiss, but when being ask about his view of intimate scenes in his future acting projects, he is unable to conceal his shyness.

Disclosed leader Kim Hyun Joong has poor memory, forgets about his birthday.
Actually, ever since Ss501 gradually started on their individual activities, fans are most concerned about when they will gathered together again.

As per mentioned by the other members before, Kim Hyung Jun reassured that signing contract with new management company and kicked start solo activities, does not mean that SS501 is disband.

“We are still together, our relationship is also very good. If possible, we hope to stand on stage together as soon as possible. While focusing on our individual careers now, we are still planning and preparing for our future concert and performance”.

Speaking of presents, Hyung Jun sighed: ”No present. This is not the first time, i am not surprised”.

Hyung Jun even took the chance to “Scold” leader, “Bad boy, Leader bad!”. Seems like he is really used to Hyun Joong’s forgetfulness, and did not put it to heart.

Next, Hyung Jun is expected to participate in a musical, and will released his solo album next year, plus involvement in dramas. In addition, he also plan to start a business with his brother Kim Ki Bum(U-Kiss member) and become his own boss.

Kim Hyung Jun interview in Singapore

Baby was so funny while doing this interview. Ah mahta! He doesn't want to be called 'cute' or 'baby', instead he wanted to be called 'handsome' nowadays. ^^ You are really handsome Hyung Jun! ^^ As what you have mentioned, "You are a man". Will only post the second part of his interview since the first one has some difficulty in reading the translations. Good thing the second part was translated by his interpreter so no need for subs. ^^ Thanks to shirbogurl5 for uploading it in you tube. ^^


The next video is actually the first part of the interview but I decided to post it in a later part to emphasize the statement that he just mentioned,... and that is..

"Changing a new management and pursuing a solo career doesn't mean that SS501 is going to separate. We are still together and still very close and we want to perform together again as soon as possible. So while we each pursue our own solo careers, we are still preparing to hold a concert and perform together."

[Eng Subs] Kim Hyun Joong at Y-Star interview

If Hyun Joong did not mention any unsual statements, it's either he is sick or that definitely is not Hyun Joong. ^^ Being a 4d is really his trademark. Every time he would say something, expect the unexpected.  During this interview, he even called his co-star by her name in the drama and not the real name of the person. ^^ Don't worry about the ratings Hyn Joong-ah, you'll definitely achieve that with all the audience anticipating on your drama. Have faith! ^^

SS501's "Love Ya" song used in the show "Showtime"

Earlier this afternoon, I had an appointment with my dentist to accompany someone. While my friend was inside getting her teeth cleaned, I stayed at the sofa watching tv. "Showtime", a show that is known here in the Philippines, was shown at that time. The hosts did an intermission number. At first, it did not gave me any interests since the songs that they used is not my cup of tea, and then suddenly, something caught my attention, the song being played was "Love Ya"! I was so ecstatic that I even screamed since it was my first time to see them used SS501's song!!!! That only means they are truly and undeniably popular here in the Philippines!!!!! Even though they did not used the original steps from Love Ya (of couse it would be difficult for them, our boys are the only ones that can pull that off^^ kekeke ^^) but still I was so proud that it's their song! I was like " Gyaaaahhhh!!!!! Love Ya!!!!!" (Imagine I am inside the clinic and I was behaving like that!!!!!) Here's the video clip of that performance! ^^

Kim Hyung Joon finally signs with S-Plus Entertainment

The confirmation has been out already. It was announced that he did sign already for S-Plus Entertainment. But despite of that, it does not mean that SS501 is disbanding. Remember Leader already emphasized that "SS501 is not disbanding", so we should trust on their words. This move is only one way of improving their skills as an actor. Not to mention, KeyEast, CNR Media, and S-Plus Entertainment all stated that they will support SS501's activities so it only proves that the boys priority is still their group.

As a company that works with other companies in Asia such as Japan, S-Plus Entertainment plans to further expand through the recruitment of Kim Hyung Joon. It has been reported that while talking about his contract with S-Plus, plans for Kim Hyung Joon’s promotions in Japan and other Asian countries were also naturally discussed.
Despite Kim Hyung Joon’s transfer to a new entertainment company, S-Plus has reassured that SS501 is not splitting, saying:
“Just because Kim Hyung Joon ended his contract with his previous company, this definitely does not mean that SS501 is breaking up. … In the discussion about his contract, the point that Kim Hyung Joon first and foremost emphasized was that he stays as a member of SS501 and continue all activities with them … The entertainment company will respect opinions of Kim Hyung Joon as a fellow artist of the company, 100%.
Despite the rest of SS501 being under management of another company, Kim Hyung Joon will, as a member of SS501, put SS501’s activities as first priority and participate in all their activities, national and international … S-Plus also plans to cooperate and whole-heartedly support all activities of SS501.”

To see Kim HyunJoong… 350 local and overseas media crowded at ‘Mischievous Kiss’ Production Press Conference

As much as the heated news coverage… Fan clubs also organized their supporters

“Let’s catch hold of Kim HyunJoong!”

Being called as post Yon-sama, it is not uncommon to gain the interest from local and overseas regarding actor Kim HyunJoong from group SS501.

Kim HyunJoong attended to MBC new Wed-Thu drama ‘Mischievous Kiss’ production press conference held on 26-Aug afternoon at Imperial Palace Hotel at NonHyun-dong, GangNam-gu, Seoul. About 350 media from local and overseas requested to attend and cover (news) for the press conference on this day.

Production company Group Eight, who oversees the press conference, said “We understand that about 350 local and overseas media have requested to attend ’Mischievous Kiss’ press conference. This is about the same level as the previous production ‘Boys Over Flowers’ and ‘Goong’ press conference, where overseas ticket power DongBangShinGi’s member Uknow Yunho acted in.”

Already predicted was the heated interest about Kim HyunJoong. After gaining success beyond expectations in ‘Boys Over Flowers’ last year, he strengthens his position as a singer and of course, as an actor, making a firm stand as the Hallyu star of the next generation. Furthermore, as ‘Mischievous Kiss’ is his first production after joining Key East, company where Hallyu star Bae YongJoon is a major shareholder of, it seems to have created even more interest in Japan and overseas.

Meanwhile, during the press conference, Kim HyunJoong’s fans also organized their supporters to be volunteers. Production company hinted “The fan club spontaneously prepared gifts for Kim HyunJoong and the reporters. They prepared Kim HyunJoong’s photo album and large ice sculpture wishing for the success for the drama. They spontaneously prepared light refreshments and some gifts for the reporters.”

Mischievous Kiss Press Conference Summary

Due to heavy rains, there was heavy traffic in our area, which results to me being absent for work. Probably, the effect of the press conference of leader reached Philippines. ^^ (remember SS501 is the group that calls out the rain? ^^) So many news have surfaced the internet so what my job is to share these news to all of you. Hope the source won't mind if I share it here in my blog. ^^

Singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong has made his comeback with the perfect and adamant guy so different from ‘Boys over Flowers’ Yun Jihoo. 
On the 26th afternoon at 2pm at Seoul, Kangnam-gu, Nonhyun-dong Imperial Palace hotel, MBC new Wed-Thurs drama ‘Playful Kiss’ press conference was held. Casts Kim Hyun Joong, Jung SoMin, Lee Taesung, Jung Hye Young, Lee Si Young attended the press conference. Kim Hyun Joong expressed on the press conference “Baek Seungjo is the combination of Goo JunPyo and Yun Jihoo”.

In the drama, he plays Baek Seungjo, the genius flower boy who possesses the indifferent and aloof charm, and is the romance target of all female students whilst also posing as a threat for male students.

When he introduces his character Baek Seung Jo, “He’s like boF’s Yun Jihoo + Goo Junpyo. Though he’s a tough and annoyable person, but inside him there’s this inability to express what he wants to say, and that point is quite similar to Goo Junpyo”.

With regards to portraying his character, “To be honest I’m someone who doesn’t have many flexible sides, in order to portray this tough guy, even though I managed to be become tough, it ended up that I had became tougher (behaviour set wise)…I felt stressed in the beginning. Though I became tough (personality), still, towards the people around me, I’m affectionate as usual”, rousing chuckles of nostrils.

In order to digest his character, “I’ve been working hard in trying to keep to the right pace/feeling, yet not losing that tough and rough tendency he has towards people. Back in the Yoon Jihoo role, he was very quiet, and if that showed a soft and gentle image, then in this time’s role, he will be so very loud and may end up in a state of wretch/neglect in the middle of drama”, explaining his role.

On the other hand, it will air after ‘Road No.1′ on September 1.

‘In this time’s drama, I play Baek Seung-jo who’s not well bred but is a genius. Even when he speaks, he sounds rude. I’m trying my best to keep to that by speaking as close as possible”. Kim Hyun Joong who played as Yoon Jihoo in previous Boys over Flowers also said, “Yoon Jihoo was one who could keep very quiet to many things and shows his gentle, soft side, but this time, my role will be one who keeps quack-quacking here and there; you’ll see something that you didn’t see in Bof. You’ll be sure to see some wretched sides of his here and there in the drama. Will be interesting”, attaching a smile of his.

“He’s a genius who has IQ 200 but is a very tough guy. In overall, he is a person who is so tough and corky yet has a very humane side to himself. I’ll work hard”.

“Until now, I still feel awkward/shy being as an actor. Though I’m now acting, I am much more natural when I’m on the stages out there performing”, “Because I began as a singer when I first stepped into this entertainment industry, it will be more apt if my profession would be named as a singer instead”, “When I become better as an actor one day, it will then be more suitable to title me as an actor”, divulging his aspirations.
Kim Hyun Joong who was borne from SS501 played the role of Yoon Jihoo in Boys over Flowers. In the initial state, his acting and pronunciation was criticized by the audiences. He mentioned to that, “I placed wine corks in my mouth this time to correct and practise my pronunciation”. “I will show you guys my more matured acting skills this time than BoF that will have you all go Wow!”, hence flaunting his confidence.

“In order to overcome people’s criticism of my acting, I frequently stuck wine corks in my mouth and practised my pronunciation. I practised alot on that. The result was…indeed my pronunciation improved much during interviews”.

Leader Kim Hyun Joong Statement ""SS501 not disband"

Yes, you read it right. And it came from the mouth of none other than Leader himself. He firmly stated this words. That only means those who already lost their faith, needs to think twice. It is true that they all have solo careers for the meantime, but in the near future there is a big possibility of SS501's comeback so make sure you'll be there to support them. Here's the news and Leader's statement from the recent press conference.


Group SS501's leader Kim Hyun Joong revealed his stand to his team's disbandment after his recruitment into new agency.

On 26th afternoon at 2pm at Seoul kangnam-gu, Nonhyundong's Imperial Palace hotel, MBC new drama 'Playful Kiss' held its press conference. When asked about SS501's disbandment, Kim Hyun Joong expressed "Never once did I mention about my moving out of SS501", mentioning his stand to this disbandment talk.

He added, "None of our members mentioned anything about disbandment at all, it was the press media who kept making many talks like this. I don't think of it as 'because we cannot do activities for now' and then feel sad. It's not like that".

"Though my moving into Keyeast will be mainly focused on acting, but we had compromised on my status as singer too. Around next year, I will be showing my side as a singer". However, if he is to prepare in his new agency, then he will become a solo singer, and if so, carrying out activities as SS501 will seem quite translucent at that.....

"Though it's not exactly finalized, I'm indeed preparing as a singer. Whether it'll be with my group or as solo, I don't know. But according to the situation now, I'm preparing for my album with the thought as solo".

Talking about disbandment of SS501, he said, "Nothing's decided. People say SS501 will disband. People say that, but nothing was ever said out of our mouths. Then what will happen if SS501 comes out with album? Let's just wait and see".

He also said, "When I first received invitation for this drama, I knew I was gonna have to work harder to portray this high school student role, because I will have to get affirmation from everyone, that's why I took it on".

Kyu Jong and Young Saeng back in Korea

These two boys seem like a thief.^^ Not because of their looks, (of course, why would a handsome guy be a thief?) but because they were able to sneak out of Korea without us knowing about it! ^^ I think they are probably enjoying their vacation. Well, good for them since they haven't gotten any rest during their promotion of "Love Ya". Let me just share you this video clip of Young Saeng and Kyu Jong at the airport.

And here is another clip where Young Saeng lowered down his window, telling the fans to photoshop him well since he does not have any make up.kekekeke ^^ Young Saeng, you still look good, it's ok. ^^

Official Photo with translations for "The First Love Story"

Yesterday I posted the pictures but included my own caption for each shot. This time, they have released the official translations and I was smiling while reading it, especially on the part when Hyun Joong gave a witty statement that the staff seems like a thief. ^^ Enjoy reading ^^

Treating his lover with his best homemade dish.

After 2pm, the location was moved to No.22 villa to shoot the scene of Hyun Joong treating his “lover” with his homemade dish.
However there was an unexpected incident here.
There are only forks but no knives in the kitchen.
Hyun Joong was not bothered about this and started cutting the pineapple with the fork.

Cutting the pineapple with a fork as there were no knives.

But as expected, it was a hard fight.
Eventually, a staff arrives with a large knife.
Hyun Joong saw the staff crouching down while entering the kitchen as not to affect the shooting, sounding composed and made a remark.
“Seems like a thief has entered…..entering once in while”
Even over here, bursting out with “Hyun Joong’s Talk”.
The staff holding the large knife burst out laughing together with everyone.
Impressed with his quick witted remark.

It will soon be sunset. Shooting of the driving scene starts on the sports car that came late. 

The last shoot for the 2nd day was the car scene heading to Pecatu Indah resort.
Even over here, there was an unexpected accident.
Supposingly to shoot Hyun Joong in the sports car racing away down the road but all were waiting for the main sports car which has not arrived yet.
This has to be taken before sunsets else the shooting schedule will be a mess.
Though the temperature isn’t low but in terms of season, it is winter thus it start turning dark at 6pm.

With the flow of the clouds the sky and sea changing every second. Hyun Joong’s expression also change with variations.

3rd day of the shoot on 30th.
Today’s main shoot is on the cruise.
Kim Hyun Joong first memorable DVD & Photo Book, “The First Love Story”.
What kind of image will be shown, having great expectations for it.
Due to the language barrier, there is an argument with the local staff and the director was starting to feel irritated
Right before sundown, the Benz sports car finally appeared and the shoot ended with all the staff feeling relieved.

Ignoring the waves splashing against his knees while continuing with the photo shooting.

After the release of the full version of 3D music video of ‘Love Ya’, the title song of SS501’s album ‘Destination’, there are floods of enquiries about watching the video.

According to JOY 3D, at this point of time ‘Love Ya’ 3D music video cannot be watched via normal TV, it is only possible to watch through 3D TV.

SS501’s ‘Love Ya’ 3D music video used the converting technique for the conversion, which is said to be more outstanding than those filmed with 3D camera.

JOY 3D said “The release of this 3D music video will give some comfort to fans for the disappointment they have due to the short activity period of SS501. Currently, we are receiving enquiries from overseas companies and we are discussing with DSP Media on co-production of 3D contents.”

News about Kim Hyun Joong regarding BOF reunion

Boys Over Flowers Alumni Event had just ended and a lot of news are coming out of the said reunion. Found this one article and it's like a summary of the 2 days event. The only correction I do suggest on this article is regarding Hyun Joong's age. He is now 25 yrs old (korean age). But for the rest of the article, I would agree, especially when he was called a Hallyu star! Congrats Hyun Joong and also for the other cast of BOF for a successful reunion. Thanks 501wangja ^^

Korean singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong successfully wrapped up the "Boys Over Flowers" reunion over the weekend, according to his agency KEYEAST on Monday.

KEYEAST announced that Kim recently returned to Korea after meeting with over 10,000 fans for the "Boys Over Flowers" reunion in Osaka and Tokyo on August 18 and 21, respectively, with fellow cast mates Ku Hye-sun, Kim Bum and Kim Jun.

At the event held at the Tokyo International Forum, Kim Hyun-joong told fans of incidents from behind-the-scenes of "Boys Over Flowers" as well as his upcoming drama MBC's "Naughty Kiss."

He also held a special individual performance where he sang and danced for the audience.

An industry official in Japan said, "Kim is the current generation's Hallyu star and since he will be starring as the male lead in 'Kiss,' which is originally based on a Japanese comic, I am interested in his future projects as an actor and singer in Korea and Japan as well as other Asian countries."

Kim, 23, made his debut as a member of the boy band SS501. In late-June, he signed an exclusive contract with KEYEAST, whose major shareholder is Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon.

Kim rose to fame as one of the members of F4 on the hit TV series "Boys Over Flowers" and is currently shooting the Korean adaptation of the comic "Itazura na Kiss," opposite actress Jung So-min. The show will go on air starting September 1.
