SS501 Members: A quick review of 2012

Time flies really fast. Before, we were all anticipating what's in store for our boys in the year 2012. We even feared that the world might end on December 2012 as what have been predicted. But look at us now, we are about to welcome another year. But before we do, let's do a quick review of what activities our boys had for the year 2012.

This year was the year of acting career for them. Kim Hyun Joong 김현중 confirmed he will be participating in the drama 'City Conquest' and started shooting for it this year. He will be playing a wild, tough, rough man who grew up with no parents. He is resentful towards his father for leaving him and his mother when he was young. He therefore sets out to get revenge on the evils in the society who destroyed him and his family's life. However when it comes to love, he is infinitely weak. He was offered the role this April and he confirmed that he would be the main lead role.

Heo Young Saeng 허영생 acted in the sitcom 'I Need a Fairy/Sent from Heaven' which was aired February 2012. He portrayed a role where he is famous singer who is one of the female character's, Cha Na-ra, first love. He had left her in order to pursue his career as a professional singer, but returned to Cha Na-ra after coming to fame. His role's name is the same as Heo Young-saeng's real name, but also goes by a nickname, Kaki.

Kim Kyu Jong 김규종 has made an outstanding performance in acting in the drama 'Saving Ahjumma Go Bong Shil' as Nicky alongside f(x) member Luna. He has been praised by the media for his improvised acting skills. He also announced in June 2012 his entry to military which shocked the fans and decided to enlist in July 2012.

Park Jung Min 박정민 went to Taiwan and acted in the drama 'Fondant Garden' playing the lead role of Park Hee Hwan. This year was also the controversy about him leaving his agency CnR and filed a kawsuit against due to profit sharing issues. Jung Min went to Yamaha A&R agency instead.

Kim Hyung Jun 김형준 acted in two dramas. One is 'Glowing She' and the other one is 'I Love You'. Both dramas were also showed in Japan.

A good year for our boys. Their acting definitely improved. They may have not yet made their comeback this year,but we all jut have to wait until they are already complete to perform as one. Their solo careers have been great for the year 2012. Hopefully a better one in the year 2013. Happy New Year!!!!! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!!!!! 

Disclosure: some information came from wikipedia

Kim Hyun Joong Official Facebook Update: A picture with puppies 12.30.12

Such a cute snapshot from our dear Leader. ^^ Remember during SS501 days he was nicknamed as '김 개나 소나'. If you're a true blood Triple S, you'd know why he's called like that. ^^ Thanks to howlovelylala for translating it. ^^ 김현중 완전 귀엽다!!! ♥


'개교감' means 'Communication w/ dogs' but has alternate meaning. People prefix this slang '개(dog)' as a meaning of 'so bad'. For example, '개좋아' means 'I like it so bad'. Seems HJ used this slang as a joke w/ posting a 'real dogs pix'. Lol

So finally, KeyEast shares some pictures of Hyun Joong having a great time in Jeju Island with some friends of him. ^^ Glad to know he's having the time of his life. ^^ And speaking of Hyun Joong, would just like to share here real quick. I've dreamt about him last night. ^^ Couldn't recall most of it, but for me, those were the most precious few seconds of my dream. By the time I woke up, I suddenly uttered to myself 'Sometimes it's good to wish to stay in your dream. 'Cause some moments doesn't happen in real life, but in our dreams, we can at least feel we are loved by the person whom we have been loving all this time.'  Cheesy, eh? ㅋㅋㅋ I better stop it because Hyun Joong might scold me for being one. Remember he hates mushy things. ㅋㅋㅋ 김현중 나 한테 화 내지 마세요, 아셨죠? 하여 친구와 즐거운 시간을. ^^

Here's a latest update from Kim Hyun Joong's Official Facebook update. As you can see, he's enjoying his vacation this holiday season with some friends and even took a picture with a little octopus. ^^ Do you have any idea where he is right now? Well, I have a hunch, but I might as well keep it to myself. ㅋㅋㅋ The moonsun he is refering to as his friend is probably the octopus who is clinging into his arm. ^^ 김현중 너 즐기는? ^^ Your smile says it all. ^^

*I'm not really sure about the translation of the name. I'm thinking of munsun or moonsoon but ends up using this name instead. Will update title if found better ones. ^^

Japan First Solo Album "UNLIMITED" Release Event :

Kim Hyun Joong (26) had a premium event in Tokyo in commemoration of the release of
his first solo album in Japan, " UNLIMITED ". Though he did not sing, but music videos
of "Your Story" and "Save Today" were presented. He had an interesting talk with
his guests, a self-appointed cheer leader, KABA-chan as well as Kazuko Kurosawa
(female comedian).

After eleven months since his Japan debut on January 25, 2012, the first album
" Unlimited " has eventually been released. Every song including the new three songs
as well as Kiss Kiss/Lucky Guy and Oricon No.1 single " Heat " produced by B'z
were sang in Japanese. Kim Hyun Joong talked showed his passion for the album
during the talk of the event.

1/ Music video of " Your Story " has been released.

HJ: This is the second song I sing with band style following " Heat ". I have been enhancing this song for a long time so that I can sing it in an album someday. I have some more songs which I will sing as a band music. I would like to produce these songs in future.

2/ Where the shooting took place ? ( about "Save Today ")

HJ: It took place in the set in Korea. The idea of the concept is that we go back to the past. So I moved with the double speed of the other people, while they were
walking very slowly. I would like to show it if the making video is available now. It was very hard for me to sing a song very rapidly while the music being reproduced
fourfold ( He tries to show how rapid he sang )

3/ The concept of the title?

HJ: It means " Unlimited potential in growing " I would like to continue to grow. That is why I choose this title.

4/ How do you review this year ?

HJ : Stretching myself out at home, I asked myself " What did I do this year ? " (the audience burst into laughter ) I would like to spend much busier days the next year.

5/ The concept of the album ?

HJ : I put my feeling " Please do not let me go which means I do not want to lose you " I do not want to lose this moment when you give a big love to me.

6/ What is your plan the next year?

HJ : I am going to start 2013 with Japan nation-wide tour. I also plan to release a full album in Korea. I will also show you Kim Hyun Joong as actor in the drama. I have another plan to start World tour at the end of the year. I will also release a single album in Japan. So it will be a very busy year for me. I hope that you will give me your support which will give me power when I feel tired.

Though it is something I’ve always say, please be the pretties who will give a warm and comfortable helping hand with your precious someone at year end~^^
Even though it is important to be finding happiness, but sharing and distributing seems to be even more important~ That’s why happiness is turning round and round among each other~ How great is that?!^^ Hee~
I wrote bigger because I heard that the letters can’t be seen clearly
But while writing, I realized that I can’t write more than a few lines..TT Anyways!! Time flies faster than we think~ That’s why we must spend (our time) valuably~ Promise!! We frequently say “What should I do tomorrow?”
Tomorrow is an extension of tomorrow and tomorrow will be today in a blink, today will be the past before we knew it!
So instead of worrying for tomorrow, why not always welcome it with excitement?!^^ My excitement is today’s excitement for tomorrow
And the exciting yesterday that seems to have remain^^
The last line before I knew it..

TT Pretties, a hasty goodbye~ Will write a letter again^^♡
