[17/03] Hyung Jun to give love back to Japan


 SS501′s Kim Hyung Jun who’s had captivated the passion of Japan as a Hanryu singer 4 years ago is feeling awe-inspiring recently. With a new title as Singer Kim Hyung Jun, he ambitiously released his first perfectly done solo album as he gives an undertaking to make his new stepping-out. However, his priority is something else. Because of the Japan big earthquake, his worry for fans is significant too. He wants very much to reciprocate the love he’s received from Japanese fans as one member of SS501.

Before he began the interview on his solo album, he did not forget to show his worry for Japanese fans first, “Because we’ve gotten so much love from Japan, I need to start planning real soon on an event to mourn for the Japanese citizens, no matter in what format it shall be”. His solo album that was sincerely prepared may be important, but his concern for Japanese fans is what makes him heart-warming to us.

Kim Hyungjun described his feelings of going solo as “the feeling of debuting again”. He who has turned from the maknae in his group to a solo singer now made us hear animation in his voice. His 4 other members who were always beside him are not present now, but he has with himself every day the determination of going towards a new beginning, and this determination is the same as what a newbie would have when he/she just debuts. Kim Hyungjun who illuminated gleam in his eyes calls this his ’2nd debut’, and no sooner than later, he stood on the stages, again.
 

(Q) First of all you’re now standing on stage alone and not as five. How do you feel?

(A) I’m not really that kind who gets nervous easily, but I don’t know why I feel very anxious this time. Not like my style right (laughs). Couldn’t control my expressions properly, and felt my stiffening body when I perform on stage. Though my first stage was quite awkward and a little pitiful that way, I don’t think it would affect my outlook in performing too much. You will get to see senior idol Kim Hyungjun’s adept stage manners in the next performance.

(Q) What disadvantages and advantages are there if you were to compare it against SS501 days?

(A) It was always doing activities with the five of us, but now I’m turned to stand alone and though I do feel nervous, I feel great too for being able to work alongside great people. The best thing of this all is that I can get to subdue the camera all by myself. I feel very excited everyday that I’d be able to show to everyone my different profiles. Of course, that comes with huge responsibility too isn’t it. My members are not with me so I need to work alot times harder right?

(Q) How did people around you & your members responded?

(A) It’s already been 6 years since I began standing on stage. I was shaking furiously on my first stage but now I have got to put forth a relaxing show for all. There was a good premonition at the beginning. All people around me told me the music was good. Haha. However now that I don’t have my members whom we always relied on and who always gave encouragement for one another, I feel a little empty inside me. We always play the role of support towards each other so I feel a little lonely. For this too I gotta endure it alone.

(Q) Do you contact the SS501 members often?

(A) We monitor one another and also do not hesitate at giving suggestions and comments to one another. We may be in different agencies for now, but we do come frank during discussions on which period to carry out activities at and the concept we’ll use. We joke about doing that in a way our personal activities won’t clash. Especially Park Jungmin who sent his support all the way by visiting my music video shooting location and also came as a guest to my fanmeeting venue. Our members are originally skilled by nature, so even if we were to stand forth alone, all of us will be able to do it well enough.

(Q) What is it you have in mind the most when you’re doing activities alone?

(A) More than anything else I want to let know of a brand called Kim Hyungjun. It will be something that only I can do it, no matter what it may be, and I want to show it to people. I want to make it in a way that it will be oozing with a very liberated atmosphere once Kim Hyungjun appears. That’s why I wore many different outfits such as training uniform, formal suits etc and showed my various profiles in the album; similarly in music wise, I also showed a huge change. It’s really quite different from the strong stage atmosphere that SS501 had. Vocal-wise and stage-wise, there was less strength used and instead it was filled with a lighter spirit in the atmosphere. I want to become a dance singer who has with me my unique characteristics, only.


(Q) If there are any distinctive features in this album?

(A) From hit song producer E-Tribe to rapper Dokki and all other skilled veteran musicians who haven’t been able to collaborate during SS501 days have all worked alongside me this time. Dance song ‘Girl’ is my most favorited song and it was released first, while the song produced by E-Tribe hyungs that carried with it a unique feel was then selected to be my title track. If it has a popular melody, it’ll be easier to get the attention of audiences first. I also tried my part at being a lyricist for 2 songs. Because this is MY album, I want to fill to my heart’s content with words that I want to say.

(Q) DBSG who used to carry their activities alongside you all is now divided into two people; how do you feel?

(A) It’s a pity, but I feel they will work out well. Many past memories float in mind alot these days.

(Q) Do you have any new determination on any thing, now that you’re doing activities alone?

(A) First of all, I’m determined to no longer hold that tinge of shyness when I’m on stage. When I go on music programmes, I do start to feel my status as a senior. I hope to make it to an extend like, when juniors see me perform, they will feel proud and envious about me at the same time.

(Q) What comes onto mind when you see idols these days?

(A) When they go on to music programmes, they mix around friendly and seem to bond very well, and upon seeing that I felt glad. When I was doing activities back then at our best state there were so many male groups, but these days, it’s girl groups ruling the way. They even exchange phone numbers. They look to be really bonding well.


(Q) If you were to say something to your Japanese fans with regards to this time’s big earthquake?

(A) SS501 invaded into Japan since 2008 and has been receiving alot of love from Japanese fans. Though our members are now dispersed across here and there ever since the end of our full time contract last June with former agency, our members and I hope to give our helping hand in a mourning manner in order to thank the love we’ve received from our Japanese fans. My schedules in Japan may have been announced already but of course it needs to be pushed back. Instead concern was shown for me and I feel nothing but gratitude. Luckily our fans are safe and sound, and instead they worried for me. Once again, thank you to the infinite love from our fans.

 (Q) What’s your aim for this year?

(A) I want to receive the Bonsang award with my solo album this year. First and foremost would be to stand up high in this music industry with my name. But still, I hope to do activities in Japan as soon as possible, and also juggle musical activities. I want to do many different activities.

[17/03] Kim Hyung Jun: First time going solo


Male group quintet SS501′s member Kim Hyungjun (24) has now stood forth alone.

Kim Hyungjun who’s returned to the music industry after a year with his first solo mini album ‘My Girl’. It’s his first time doing solo activities so he does feel anxious but still, at every point during the interview, he showed confidence. Last 10th on cable channel Mnet’s ‘MCountdown’, Kim Hyungjun did not feel the emptiness left by his members and had put forth a perfect comeback stage. He succeeded in conquering the audiences with a conceptual and more powerful stage than the one he had shown with his members.

Kim Hyungjun said, “The charisma and power that our members have portrayed will now be undertaken by me solely. I will show to you a stage that does not lack in anywhere at all”, as he poured his overflowing aspiration.

(Q) You’ve made your comeback after a year?

(A) It’s been a long while since I’ve returned to the music industry, and I’ve apparently turned into a senior already. It’s the age now for me to accept juniors already. The ranking of this and that has turned so high and I’m amazed. Not long ago I went to music programme and I saw G.Na, IU and Dalshabet. They’re really cute. I was very delighted but in order to show my grand profile as a senior, I tried to show a state of composure towards them. (meaning trying to act cool ha ha ha ha)

(Q) The album jacket is unique?

(A) It is my solo album but I want to express the fact that I’m a member of SS501. Even if people may be looking at the album jacket only, they will have the thought like, ‘Ah SS501′s member Kim Hyungjun is having his solo activity now huh’, that kind, and for that, I had put in alot of effort to try to achieve that thought in people. I did the design for the jacket. One who has properly morphed from five people (SS501), that kind of meaning.

(Q) Response for title song ‘oH! aH!’ was good?

(A) Though oH! aH! is an exciting dance song but it isn’t that kind of popular hook song of these days. Fans hoped for a more popular song where they could hum after to sing but I wanted to show a song with a new type of style. I worried if people would find me too stuck-up with desire, but since response for it was good, I’m glad.

(Q) It was singing along with five of you all, but now that you’re to sing it alone it’s gonna be hard?

(A) You gotta dance and sing the full song altogether so it’s very tough. When you stand onto stage you feel nervous and then on top of that you need to coordinate it well together, the chemistry can seem to easily lessen. All our solo dance singers are awesome.

(Q) It’s your first time doing solo activity. What’s different from doing activities with your group?

(A) Lonely. When the car is moving from one place to another or when I’m resting, my members are not with me and I feel bored. And on stage, when I think about it, I feel emptiness. It hasn’t been long since I made my comeback so I think of this as my adjusting period.

(Q) When will we be able to see SS501 standing together on stage again?

(A) All our agencies are different and all our personal activities are very tight and busy, so we still weren’t able to discuss about this in detail. However our plan as of now is to release an album within this year. When SS501 appears, all other groups have gotta tighten themselves and get anxious already. Because SS501 isn’t a group to prepare sloppishly for their comeback. Haha.

(Q) Do you contact often with your members?

(A) Busy so although we do meet at times, we also contact each other often. We sometimes meet up over drinks.

(Q) Your character business is flourishing?

(A) It’s truly beyond my expectation. Thanks to my brother Kibum that’s why it’s flourishing. Kibum even did the packaging of products himself, and also stuffed the cottonwool into the toys. The character cushions that were supplied to us and meant to be sold over 1 year has been sold out in only 2~3 months. Response in Japan and China is good too. Not long ago we also recruited 2 employees who are good in foreign language. We’ll start on aggressive overseas sales too. After the character ‘Piro Piro’ that was already released first, will be followed by another character ‘Siro Siro’. Our company is filled with the Festival Atmosphere. Haha.

(Q) How do you distribute the profits raked in from your business?

(A) I give it all to my brother. Because he’s the one working more aggressively his guts out for this.

(Q) Your brother Kibum withdrew from U-KISS. How will his future broadcast activities turn out like?

(A) He’s looking for an agency that will blend in well with him. Should there be any good agency for him, he’ll start his broadcast activities thereafter. It’ll be good if Kibum could succeed at first go, but I hope for him to become a singer who develops better and better over each stage by each step consistently.

(Q) You seemed to have worried alot because of the Japan big earthquake?

(A) I wanted to leave a piece on twitter regarding the earthquake victims but I don’t know how to write and what to write so I couldn’t. But I will leave a piece on my official Japanese homepage. I’m discussing with my agency on how to help with this. I’ve received alot of love from Japanese fans. And it’s the time now for me to repay that love.

(Q) Aren’t you gonna love?

(A) Lonely. I really don’t have a girlfriend. I gave up on love. I’m thinking if I should get matchmaked and then get married when I turn 30. Haha.

(Q) What’s your aim for the year?

(A) I have plans to do aggressive activities overseas like in China, etc. Also have plans to do a solo concert at the end of the year. I will need to sing throughout a full 2 hours so I will be seemingly releasing many albums in this year. 2011 will turn to be an extremely busy year for me.

SS501’s Kim Hyung Jun discusses his thoughts about going solo

After spending nearly a year learning how to stand on his own, SS501’s maknae, Kim Hyung Jun, finally returned to the stage with the release of his very own solo album.
He stated, “The best thing is that I have the cameras all to myself (laughter).  It feels like I’ve become lighter.  I’m almost upset that my body isn’t moving as fast as I want it to because I want to just go out there and try everything there is.  I’m trying to suppress that, however.”
Randomly, he turns to the reporter and asks, “What shall I do?”
Even without any outside advice, he’s led a busy career on his own thus far. Kim Hyung Jun is currently the DJ for SBS’s “Kim Hyung Jun’s Music High“, but before that, he’s performed for the musical “Caffeine“, and even ran his own reality program, “Hyung Jun’s Game Team“. Next month, he’ll be starting his Japanese promotions, which will be followed by an Asian tour in May.
When the reporter pointed out the whirlwind nature of his schedule, Kim Hyung Jun explained, “I’ve always wanted to do so many things.  It’s not that I’m jealous of the success of others, but I was always hoping for opportunities.  Before, all I did was pester for it, but now I’ve matured enough to discuss things and try to balance stuff out.  As I work to find common ground, I learn things about myself that I never knew before.  Do I seem like an adult now?”
To prepare for his solo, Kim Hyung Jun dedicated all his energy into perfecting his first solo stage. He hoped to use “Girl“, a strong dance track, as a ’smasher’ that would leave a strong first impression. Afterwards, he sought to switch it up by opting for a song that would be more soothing. In the end, Kim Hyung Jun ended up choosing “oH! aH!” as his title track because of its friendly appeal.
I liked that ‘Girl’ emphasized a strong hook, and I thought it was okay to be greedy then. Others, however, thought that what I needed as a more easy-going melody.  I think that choosing E-TRIBE hyung’s track was a good decision in the end.  I’m trying not to rush things, this is just the beginning after all.”
While preparing for his solo, Kim Hyung Jun stated that he tried not to become too satisfied with anything, and worked diligently in learning how to stand on his own by lowering his sight and judging himself coldly.
He concluded, “I’m trying to become cold, if that’s possible. If even I sometimes think that my stages are awkward, how would others view it?  I have to be more flexible and capable. My stage?  I’d rate it 50 points out of a 100.”

[News][2011.03.14] Bae Yong-joon and Kim Hyun-joong aid Japan!
The Yonsamas are ready to help!

On March 14th, KEYEAST announced to the public that Bae Yong-joon and Kim Hyun-joong donated money to Japan’s relief efforts. Yong-joon gave $890,000, while Hyun-joong graciously donated $71,000.

Yonsama urged the government to use his money to fund the basic necessities (including food and water). He is very concerned about the people. Hyun-joong admitted that his money wasn’t much, but he hopes his effort can aid the people in some way. The initial shock and heartbreaking news of the current situation after the earthquake and tsunami made the singer quickly run to their aid.

The damage and nuclear explosions that have taken place aches your heart. I truly commend these two celebrities for their willingness to give. In addition, the phrase Pray for Japan is truly needed.

City Hunter Script Reading by All of The Casts


Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young, Lee Joon Hyeok, and Goo Ha Ra was gathered in one place to have a first script reading together. They gathered in a drama studio. Jeon Ho Jin, Kim Sang Jun, and Lee Hyo Jung were focused to the script while once breath their smoke in their hands. Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young, and Lee Joon Hyeok until the end of script reading moved to another place (in that drama studio) to have more concentration to feel their role.
The drama is based off the original Japanese comic series, “City Hunter“, although minor tweaks have been added to make it work with a Korean background.
The drama is currently scheduled to air its pilot episode on March 25th, and has already been earning much anticipation, thanks to its all-star cast. That hype got bumped up another notch after it was revealed that PD Jin Hyuk (who’s known for “Shining Inheritance” and “Prosecutor Princess“) and writer Hwang Eun Kyung(who’s known for “Daemul“) had teamed up for the production.
Producers of “City Hunter” stated, “The scene from the script-reading was a scene of perfect cooperation between young, passionate actors, and the older, more experienced seniors. We could all feel their determination in hoping to make this the best drama possible.”

Hello everyone, I am Park Jung Min
It's been quite some time since I have left message on the board.
I guess everyone should have known about the news of Japan thru various media.
Firstly, I would like to send my condolences and utmost regards to the people in Japan.
With regards to this catastrophe that has happened to Japan, I am really saddened by it.
I am really very worried about the people in the affected areas and also the fans in Japan.
With regards to this sudden natural disaster, I feel so powerless in this situation, I feel extremely heart pain.
Although the situation now is not very optimistic, but I really hope that everyone can restore their hope and weather this storm together.
Sincerely hope that there will be no more greater disaster again.

Kim Hyun Joong's Msg for the Earthquake Victims

Extending my deepest condolences
to the victims of the Earthquake that happened in the North-eastern Pacific region

I understand that on the 11th of March,
there was an earthquake in the north-eastern pacific.
After knowing about the devastating aftermath of the earthquake,
I am very worried.

Originally the event was to be held today,
and I've been looking forward to meet everyone.
However, because of the disaster that happened,
we were forced to cancel the plans to visit Japan.

I am not sure if every victim of the earthquake are all in a very dire state or not,
but I really hope that everyone will take care of their health
and continue to pray that everyone can quickly go back to live in safe, peaceful times again.

I look forward to the day when I could see everyone in the highest form again.

Kim Hyun Joong.

KyuJong's Part

KyuJong who went to various countries with YoungSaeng for their fan meeting tour, during the January Japan fan meeting, towards the question: “Just like in the story in the schedule to be released DVD, what will you do if both of you fall in love in the same girl?”, KyuJong’s answer is: “Will not say about my feelings and silently end it.” When the mother fan who mentioned that both daughter-mother are his fans and passionately proposed: “Please marry my daughter who is still in secondary”, KyuJong gave fans his polite answer which fans anticipated: “Age and love doesn’t matter, firstly please work hard in studies, until your daughter become a great adult, hope to meet again.”

As the special gift for fans, KyuJong specially perform magic which he is an expert. Before the magic performance, reading silently “2011 has a lot of good things”, gesturing heart sign to fans being picked on stage. Because can felt the calm and elegant look, sometime felt that he is older than YoungSaeng who was standing beside him, KyuJong seemed to think like this, and mentioned to fans: “Do you thin I am more elder? Although YoungSaeng is hyung, but seemed like I looked more like one” kind of word. KyuJong’s this year’s theme is ‘acting’. We have an interview with KyuJong who is passionate about bring an actor.

Q: The DVD is film in Philippines Pomo Island, please talk about the sea.
Kyu: No matter where is the sea, will feel happy, the sea is really good. (Smile) In my impression there’s many sea in different places. When going to Kangwondo with SS501 members, running and chasing in the seaside at night; Filming with members in America sea. Also to film a program, went to work in a restaurant call “House of the sea” at Chiba seaside. (Smile)

Q: What kind of person is YoungSaeng in KyuJong eyes?
Kyu: First impression is “Although looked charming but feel very cold”. Even when being mistaken also won’t talk. However once spending time more, turned into “This person is a really deep person” kind of thought. Although seldom talk, but towards person who first met will be more tactful and will be careful in speech, is a very cool person. After getting closer, discover that not only is a person who will bring lots of happiness but also a person that will think for others. YoungSaeng hyung who sing very well no matter when will always said “I don’t sing well”…. really very humble! Most charming when singing! (Smile)

Q: There’s a movie clip showing you massaging YoungSaeng, you are good in massaging?
Kyu: Although don’t know whether consider good, but like to massage for others. Always massage my parents and hyung which are closed to me! After completed, when heard them saying it is very comfortable, will feel very happy.

Q: If there’s 2nd DVD, where and how do you want it to be filmed?
Kyu: How about acting as a singer? To me it is a very big present, my memories could also be portray in another style, will work even harder. After going through interview, failure, and getting a chance to participate in recording, finally debut….. while showing happiness smile, at the same time showing the image of becoming a great artist after few years…. if can film this kind of process, really wish to (smile)

Q: KyuJong is a person that will easily sweat, when filming in Philippines, have problem with make up melting very fast because of sweating, felt very tiring right. What about in daily life? For example, when hold on a girl hand and having the uneasiness of sweating.
Kyu: There are no incident of sweating and holding hands at the same time. However, when I am alone in the car and feel hot, really very uneasy. However, there’s also a good side. In the suana, can sweat very fast!

Related to acting in the DVD, “When acting alone, will be more natural. When together with YoungSaeng hyung, will felt a little shy.” It is just a matter of not enough experience and also the most worth watching point. Because too engross, will have opposite effect. For example, YoungSaeng mentioned about this kind of interesting thing. “In the DVD, there were scenes which both of us high five before playing seaside volley ball, KyuJong was to engross in the act and rushed fiercely at me, and hit the face. Really very painful. Get the OK for the scene because of that condition. If look at the DVD carefully, can see that actually I was very painful.” Seems like he wanted to use this as his future actual acting activity. After few years time, after training, when able to perform naturally things that wish to perform, this DVD will become a treasure.

Q: In future, is there any role which you wish to act in? Like which movie and which role in a drama.
Kyu: Recently seen ‘Petty Romance’ by Lee Seon Kyun and Choi Kang Hee, really like Lee Seon Kyun’s role. Also like to try ‘The Chaser’ and ‘The Supernatural’ kind of role in movie. Then, also want to try the role which Ha Jung Woo acted in ‘My Dear Enemy’! When thinking really felt very greedy… haha, fighting!! (Smile)

Q: When filming the DVD, do you have any thoughts of “I am not suitable to be an actor” kind of thought for a moment?
Kyu: “….fighting!”

Q: SS501 leader Kim HyunJoong has successfully perform his acting activity, (KyuJong) towards other members activities, are you worried?
Kyu: Of course will be worried. No matter what has been looking after each others over this long period. When see the member performing, will know whether is nervous, has what kind of problem (smile). However, they are very experience, definitely can do well. HyunJoong hyung’s drama, JungMin’s first album, and HyungJun’s musical. YoungSaeng is preparing new album! Looking at everybody like this, will think that I do not want to loose out to the other members.

Q: Of all the SS501 songs, which is your favourite?
Kyu: For our song, most like songs which will convey a message. Because able to feel the pain which everybody expressed. ‘Wings of the World’, ‘Confession’, ‘Sometime’, ‘Because I am stupid’, ‘Just one day’ and ‘Again’ etc, also always listening currently. ‘Sky’ when listening will felt warmth in my heart and like it very much.

Q: During the fan meeting magic performance, used red roses, however when on stage fans has suggested to use orchid. If able to perform magic for all kinds of flower, most wish to be what flower?
Kyu: Yellow roses

Q: What other type of magic you are good in?
Kyu: There are still a few more perfected magic, if there’s chance will show to everybody! Because learning magic during secondary time, so the ability has deteriote. (Cry)

Q: Will you be passive in love relationship? During fan meeting heard rumours of KyuJong is a shy person….
Kyu: Rather than saying is a person that is active in love relationship, might as well said is a person which is passive. But feel that recently have turned more positive. (Smile)

Q: What will you react if meet a person you like?
Kyu: When meeting a person I like, will first try to understand each other gradually

Q: Do you have any encounter of love in first sight?
Kyu: If such thing happen, will try to talk to her to know more about her. Not just limited to love relationship, when meeting new friends will also do this. If really think that “this is the person”, will do like this and will do everything well! In love relationship and also with friend.

Q: In HyunJoong’s ‘We Got Married’, have once match made with Wonder Girls YooBin. Was really shy during that time and left a deep impression to others. Do you still keep in contact now?
Kyu: After that has no chance to meet again, also has not keep in contact. Because was very busy, after filming had not meet again.

Q: KyuJong always said “My ideal type is Oh SeJung’…
Kyu: “My ideal type is Oh SeJung’, until now has not change. Like gentle, exceptional, and a little bit blur type of girl

Q: You are from JeonJu right, do you go back very often?
Kyu: Always go back to hometown. When feeling very lonely in Seoul, will cancel all plans and go home, meeting with friends in my hometown, go back to my parents home. Only at that moment, will have the normal (Kim KyuJong in human world) live. Can don’t think of anything, say anything. (Everytime also) at the moment when reaching home town, felt very excited, but will not stay for very long. Because if stay for very long, will not want to go back (Seoul), so will try to go back early.

Q: Talk about your solo activity in future.
Kyu: Firstly wish to learn a lot of things. Because feeling that from the start until now, has been running forward, now wanted to rest for a while. Listening to a lot of music which haven’t listen before, watch a lot of movie which haven’t watched, while learning and practicing acting skill and preparing for album. Working hard towards the goal of when other heard of Kim KyuJong will said “He is really very good”.

Q: Finally, what is your dreams in future?
Kyu: Music producer. Music is a friend that bring me until here, is a friend that make me cry and laugh. Although still have a lot of things that are not matured enough and is still learning, but from now on will definitely want to live together with music.

KyuJong ended the interview with his signature “Written by J.Dream”. J.Dream is his pen name which he used when composing. And also left a message with a deep meaning — “Although has schedule to focus this year main activity on acting, but music is root.” With a goal as a producer, in order to show more ability chosen the route as an actor. This is definitely not a decision based on easy choice.
