In the current Korean wave, Kim HyunJoong's name is a golden standard. 'Hanazawa Rui''s melancholy, Baek SeungJo's pride, all these images that were popular in Asia were originated from Kim HyunJoong, but it was not completely him. Holding his fan meeting in Shanghai grand stage on 9 June, the reporter was trying to search for the actual appearance of this Korean perfect idol in this exclusive interview: This XiaoLongBao fan who was practicing mandarin diligently, proudly mentioned his ambitious heart in the china market, hand-picked 3 artists in China entertainment circle whom he wishes to work with. As for him in private, he said that rather than be a Prince charming, might as well be a normal man who do his work well, other than his friendship with his boss Bae Yong Joon, his concept of love is very simple, "The perfect girl in my heart must be like a friend."

Admires Zhang ZiYi and like Fan BingBing

In about 10days time to this round's Shanghai fan meeting, during the interview, Kim HyunJoong was practicing mandarin diligently. The difficult language was giving this perfect idol headache. He complained: 'If asking me to learn Shanghainese concurrently, it is really too hard for me! Although Shanghainese sounds a little like Japanese, but I really don't dare to learn." Kim HyunJoong mentioned that he had prepared something special for Shanghai fans, but he wanted to keep it as a secret first. "Comparing to other places, Shanghai fans have more understanding of me, SS501 had held 2 successful concerts in Shanghai, 3 months ago I was guest for TGC show, therefore I'm thinking how to present something completely different from usual to everybody."

Kim HyunJoong said the reason that he like Shanghai is very simple: Unfamiliar at 1st but getting use to it thereafter. Because he has been visiting Shanghai for many times, Shanghai could be considered as the city which he most familiar with in China. Although he couldn't get use to the sweetish based food in Shanghai, but this Korean popular idol is a fan to Shanghai cuisine, Hu Cai (especially Xiao Long Bao). Talking about Shanghai, Kim HyunJoong proudly recalled, starting from 2008 he had already performed in Shanghai grand stage, had great performances and experience in a great venue. For his 4 stops FanMeeting this round, the organizer had informed him that his Shanghai fans were most supportive and ticket sales were the best. "This city is very modern & full of live. Most important of all I have always received most love over here. This is the reason why I love here!"

Recently, a lot of Korean top star has started to venture into China market, his performance this round could be viewed as a sign of his career advancement. He mentioned frankly, he has never stopped his foot steps into China market. "Whether from the previous years during SS501 period or singing mandarin song during Guangzhou Asia Game, actually it has clearly explained that I really valued the China Market. I know that previously those who are more popular in China were mostly in the form of groups like H.O.T, Shinhwa, Dong Bang Shin Ki and Super Junior, but I wish to see as a solo, whether I can achieve such results or exceed their results, this is my goal. This round of 4 FanMeetings are my new attempt, if I can be successful, I will bring even more wonderful performance for fans in future."

Kim HyunJoong's goal is definitely not stopped at the China Music circle, already holding tightly on the front-line position in Korea entertainment circle, he has also targeted China movie producers, "I know that there are a lot of good directors in China, and also have a lot of good works. If wanted to work with China director, I will choose to start from drama." Towards his ambitious mind to China market, Kim HyunJoong doesn't avoid, as for which China female star has left him a deeper impression, he has hand-picked Zhang ZiYi, Fan BingBing and Cecilia Cheung these 3 beauties. "They are rather popular in Korea, their qualities are different from Korean actress, I felt that each of them have their own unique character."

Bae Yong Joon is too quiet and I love liveliness

In drama, whether Korean version of 'Boys over Flowers''s Hanazawa Rui, or Korean version of 'Mischievous Kiss''s Baek SeungJo, Kim HyunJoong has crafted a lot of Prince charming image in these popular Korean drama, when asked about the differences with him in actual life, Kim HyunJoong replied: "For the image, because I am an artist, so there were not much differences. But in real life, I am more admired of a person who can do his work well. I wish that I can become a person who will work hard when working, and play hard when playing."

Kim HyunJoong frankly expressed, he will go all out when fallen in love, "If there is really a girl whom I like, I will persist on to love, no matter how hard it is." When acting in drama, each female character had their differences, but he was very aware of acting and reality, therefore he would not seek his perfect type in the virtual world: "The perfect girl in my mind must be able to get along like a friend, has no impurities in character, do not like heavy makeup normally, a girl who looks simple externally. Has a simple and honest character, able to get along well with my friends and me."

Actually, Kim HyunJoong had once shown his actual look when he was fallen in love. In the popular variety show 'We Got Married', he spend an imaginary marriage life together with HuangBo who are 6 years elder than him, this imaginary 'Elder sister Younger brother love' had created great responses in Korea and Asia, and was warmly called the 'Ssangchu couple', and also became the opportunity for his popularity. He recalled: "It was 'We Got Married' that allowed me to gain my first popularity. Internet was really miraculous, those popular variety show in Korean could actually gain similar acceptance in China which has language barrier." In the heart of this 'Little groom', he still missed the time which they worked together, remembering that although as a senior, she had not given him any pressure, allowing him to show his most naturally condition during the program recording: "Together with Senior HwangBo, appearing infront of everybody as a imaginary couple, during that period we really had very good rapport, and was really missed the cooperation. Although usually we were busy as artists, so didn't have much contacts, of course if there are suitable chance, will consider to work together."

Friendship among man is equally important to him, Starting from SS501 period Kim HyunJoong had already placed DBSK as his goal, he mentioned that he really admires his best friend Kim JaeJoong and Park YooChun. As for his senior Bae Yong Joon who was like a mentor, he has another kind of feeling: "He could be considered as my boss, senior and teacher. Although most of the time both of us were so busy until have difficulties to meet, but if any of us need help from another party, the other party will go all out to render his help. During the last meeting, didn't mentioned anything about work to him, but only have normal talk. Personally, I love to be more lively, love soccer, drinking and tour; Bae Yong Joon loves quiet, like pottery, if really want me to live like him, I will feel very uncomfortable. I loves freedom, when have no work will want to release myself, because of that I like soccer and going on tour."

Q: Hello! (You’re) making a comeback after a one-year hiatus! ^^ How did you spend it?
A: Exactly one year really. After ‘Let It Go’ promotional activities ended, Fanclub Changdansik has been held in Japan, I became the lead actor in a musical at the end of last year, different feeling compared to a singer, also very interesting. I’m now making an appearance in a sitcom. Will play baseball and basketball with good friends and hyungs when I have some free time. It really took a long time to prepare this album ^^

Q: Heard that Heo Young Saeng wrote the lyrics of title track ‘Crying’ yourself. A very good gift for your fans who have waited so long~ Please personally introduce this song! ^^
A: The more you listen to ‘Crying’ the better it sounds, it gives me a different feeling every time I listen to it. It shows the heart of a lonely man who lost love and memories. (Are you) satisfied with SOLO like this?? It’s my first time trying out a R&B song since I began my solo activities, isn’t it a new experience for listeners too?

Q: I know there are a lot of highlights in this mini album~ Besides the title track, which song would you definitely recommend to your fans?
A: I can’t recommend only a song… all 3 songs must be recommended!! ‘Intimidated’ is a song that I hope would be the title track, I want to try out a style like this, strongly recommend this charismatic song. ‘Maria’ seems to be a song that fans really like. ‘Hello Mello’ is really a song that can bring my fans and I together as one, can spend happy time with my fans, really want to sing it all together once!

Kim Hyun Joong interview with Sohu Entertainment - about China Tour

HJL: Hi everybody I am Kim Hyun Joong
HJL: The fanmeeting this time is a little different, I don't know how's other people fan meeting is like. I did heard that others are mostly based on talk show. But this time it is different, although there are talk time but most important part are the singing performance part, therefore whether is the stage, or the songs list, it is closer to a concert format. This time I will be singing 15 songs and it is going to be very large scale, there are video clips and laser show and lightning effects. Because I had not seen others performance so I cannot be sure whether it is different from others, but most important is everybody will treat it as a show, to appreciate something.

MC: So as what I understand, does it means that there will be interaction with fans? Is there any special segment to strengthen that?
HJL: There are some interaction segment with fans, will also ask fans to go on stage, or parts which I will go down the stage. But each place has its own rules and culture and every countries' rules & custom are different, therefore I want to try to overcome them. If I can't overcome it, then how can I change all these to show a better stage and have a better interaction. I will try my best to communicate these with my production team when I go back.

MC: For this concert, you have participated in the entire planning, is there any special segment specially cater for China fans?
HJL: Actually what I did most for China fans is this performance itself, because only China has 4 stops. I have actually wanted to go to every place to have close contact with everybody but due to the limited time and also crash with my schedule. So I choose to show more things to everybody in a bigger city.

MC: Are you worried of the language barrier?
HJL: I am not very worry about the language barrier. Similar to this, other countries will also be using their local language. Same for China, I will try to use some native china language to communicate with everybody. During the performance, if I want to say something, I have already prepared a translator who can translate spontaneously, therefore I am not worry about problems in communication.

MC: Would you be singing some local songs or invite some local artists as your guest?
Translator: Sorry, don't have. I just want to let you know that we do not have this segment.

MC: You have ever mentioned that your wish is to open a free concert for your fans in worldwide. Previously you have also held 3 concerts, fulfilling your wish. China fans also wish to know whether when you will do something like this for them.
HJL: If there is a chance, I wish I can hold a free concert at every place, allowing everybody to see more good performance. Especially for China stop, I wish to involve more in the area of charity, to help some poverty-stricken area, to gather together more people to hold a better performance. At that time, I will want to invite a lot of China artists to participate in this charity concert and use the best performance to return to the society.

MC: Your wish to open a free concert has been fulfilled, so what is your next biggest wish?
HJL: I wish to let more people listen to my songs. Hope that when everybody listen to my song, they will feel happiness. My greatest wish is to let everybody received happiness, using my limited power to bring happiness to everybody. When I work even harder to expand my singing performances, in future when I release my album, everybody will think that it is going to be something that is worth anticipated.

MC: Actually I know that you have a lot of fanatic fans, they have been trying to get into close contact to you. Among the fanatic fans that you meet which is the most fanatic kind, can you please describe to us?
Translator: Sorry, we will not discuss about fans because this is fans personal behavior.

MC: Previously in 'Boys Over Flower' & 'Playful Kiss', you mostly acted as flower boy. For your next work 'Conquest of City', there is a drastic change in your role. Please let us know what kind of role is this.
HJL: This role in 'Conquest of City' is different from the usual gentle role, which completely not found in this drama. Maybe everybody cannot get use to my more masculine and wild and more man kind of feel. However, since the storyline is really good, when it is broadcast, everybody will definitely like this role. Because of the role of a brutal man, must have different depth, being able to get such a role, I am full of anticipation.

Translator: This will be the last question

MC: For this drama, is this role very different from you in real life, what is your biggest challenge?
HJL: I think this role is not completely different or similar to me. Some parts are similar some are not. Up till now, all of the role that I had acted in, they were not exactly like my actual character. Because as an actor, I have to try to figure out a new role and also to imagine the person's character, in order to show a completely different role. Maybe everybody will be thinking whether this is similar to Kim Hyun Joong's character and start to guess. But most important of all is that I have acted this character well, totally removed the image of Kim Hyun Joong and blend into a new stage when acting in this drama.

MC: So would you make a preparation for this?
HJL: 1st, I practice martial arts. 2nd, I read the script everyday. 3rd, I try to figure out the character of role. Since this is a drama with a lot of actions and fighting scene, I need to train to improve my strength and tone my body.

MC: Your motto is 'Live Life like there is only once', can you please explain to us?
HJL: Because you only live your life once, so I love this kind of motto, although there is rebirth or karma circle but I still think that you only have this life, this is why I like this motto.

Kim Hyun Joong - 2012 Asia Fanmeeting in Hong Kong [12.05.12]

From: peppergreen501.mysinablog.com

[Article] Kim Hyun Joong - ASIAN EMPEROR by LazerKim

Credits LazerKim

By LazerKim:           Kim Hyun Joong boarded his flight yesterday morning bound to Beijing China from Hongkong. What’s the agenda? Hyun Joong went to China for an important press conference pertaining to his up coming Fan Meeting Concert schedule on June. But before I start writing this topic, may I share with you a news update as of yesterday morning as Hyun Joong was leaving Hongkong after his huge success of his Fan Meeting concert held last Saturday evening. As I mentioned in my article yesterday Brilliant Star, Hyun Joong will surely be the cover of all local newspaper in Hongkong after he exploded. So may I share with you this news article, for those who may not have read it yet.
News Article:

CJ E&M enewsWorldBy Stewart Ho | CJ E&M enewsWorld – 11 hours ago
Kim Hyun Joong has proven his popularity with not only fans abroad but press outlets abroad.
On May 11, the singer and actor left for Hong Kong for his scheduled fan meeting. Ahead of his fan meeting, Kim Hyun Joong held a press conference where he revealed his feelings on his fan meeting, which took place on May 12.
At the press conference all the major Hong Kong press outlets including Wenweipo, Sing Tao, The Sun, Apple Daily and more, were on hand to cover Kim Hyun Joong’s every words and actions.
His popularity was evident in the next day’s press as various pictures and articles on Kim Hyun Joong’s arrival in Hong Kong were seen.
Kim Hyun Joong is currently in the middle of a fan meeting tour in Asia.
Photo credit: Key East  (Photo above) Re-post from OMG Yahoo.com
Actually this news from Hongkong is not surprising to me anymore after the huge success of Hyun Joong’s Fan Meeting event. What surprises me more is his press conference in Beijing China. The venue where the press con being held was so grand (Photo above), and the conference hall was filled with local and international media. The said Fan Meeting event for China is three weeks away from yesterday, but the media coverage of the event I think is a huge one. What’s with the huge fanfare?
Right after the Asian Tour was confirmed and officially announced by KeyEast, China organizers for this event started to get moving. The Asia Tour advertisement has been airing in China nationwide, two weeks before Hyun Joong arrived Singapore as his first stop. Ticket outlets has started selling since then and is selling good. I start to wonder now, what made China became so ambivalent with Kim Hyun Joong??
Maybe what I can share with you is just my own analysis and opinion. I’m sure all of these did not happen over night. I made a little research on the events transpired in China that Hyun Joong attended to as a solo singer.
First, was in November 12, 2010 in Guang Zhou China, at the Asian Games Opening Ceremony, as Hyun Joong attended and sang a Chinese song together with the other Chinese artist.
At the same year 2010, a voting poll was conducted for the title 2010 Hottest Star in China, and Hyun Joong was rated on top rank number one Hottest Star in China.
In Feb. 2011 Hyun Joong won the Most Popular Asian Sta in China, as a voting poll was conducted for the title. That time Playful Kiss was airing as Hyun Joong starred in this drama
In September 2011 held the closing performance at a joint concert that was put together by various popular artist in China, with Kim Hyun Joong and had given the title Asian Emperor.
In January 2012, Hyun Joong visited China for his endorsement of a cosmetic brand The Face Shop, as Hyun Joong is the official representative of this international cosmetic brand.  Hyun Joong was also invited in celebration of Chinese Lunar Year as the first Korean artist ever was invited by China and performed.
And finally in March 2012, Hyun Joong was again invited to perform for the Liao Spring Festival or Tokyo Girls Collection held in Shanghai China. This was the unforgettable airport scenario as Hyun Joong had to forced himself out of the crowded fans to welcome him on his arrival to Shanghai.
Hyun Joong highlights the fashion show as he performed Lucky Guy that was attended by his fans and that majority of the audience that filled the stadium with green uzoosin light stick was monopolized by Hyun Joong’s fans.
Well, there you have it, so we have a history between Kim Hyun Joong and China. After looking into this list of events transpired in the past I would conclude Hyun Joong indeed had gained a lot of popularity in China. Not to mention the huge success of BOF where it all started his popularity boost.
Hyun Joong indeed did a lot of exposure in China that came up to have this project of Fan Meeting Concert and I would say a huge Fan Meeting event!! No wonder Hyun Joong prepared a lot, because all the while this is not just an ordinary event for Hyun Joong’s fans.
Now I fully understand why Korean artists tend to get in to the Japanese and Korean entertainment market. And yes, music and entertainment is in the culture of both countries and indeed it has a great potential for stepping stone to be an international star. I was thinking, these two countries are within the top rank of biggest entertainment market next to Hollywood. Fans from both countries are just as passionate to Kim Hyun Joong.
Once Hyun Joong wins these two countries by more numbers which is just within his reach, then the ball starts to roll for him. And seeing from these events takes place can tell us he’s already there, it’s just a matter of a little more exposure and I could see, he’ll be the first Hallyu solo idol to reach the top as none had done yet in this present generation.
Just like in politics, the band wagon starts rolling once Hyun Joong explode in China. He already did explode in Japan as his first shot to debut on Japanese market as soloist. What do I mean by this band wagon? Once people from the neighboring countries sees the pouring popularity of Hyun Joong from China then they follow.
And take note Hyun Joong is scheduled to launch his next mini album in Japan by July and he’ll stay as he promotes the album. Think about it. This might just be speculations, but common sense would tell us as events unfold since Hyun Joong Asian Tour Fan Meeting Concert , it’s very likely he’ll gain more than what is expected.
Hyun Joong is so competitive, as you notice he’s racing to the top with the other idol groups which he is not within that category. But reality tells us that Kpop idol groups are the popular ones these days. Actually no soloist idol singer had reached the top rank at the music chart yet among the Kpop solo artist, as Hyun Joong had in 2011 and early this year. That producer and director who spoke in Hyun Joong documentary I believe has the right assessment about Hyun Joong in leading the first title ever given as leader of solo idol.
One Chinese at the twitter who was translating the press conference mentioned that the capacity of each venue where the fan meeting is be held is at 9,000 sitting capacity more or less! Well, I still have to confirm this. Although I can’t help to think as to why did China rejects the idea of High Five session.
It’s probably because a huge crowd double than the first two events in Singapore and Hongkong is being expected. This is not impossible, Hyun Joong was able to gather 20,000 in Japan full pack at Yokohama Arena and in less than a week tickets were sold out. The concert was just one hour but this time it’s at two hours and with more activities.
Here’s another good news, the good Samaritan turns up again. As Kim Hyun Joong donated 20 Million Won to the charity after his concert in Hongkong. Again he donated his earnings out of the concert to the charity Smile Angel Foundation. This is Hyun Joong, every time he succeeds, he never forgets the charity. The guy with the golden heart will always be unselfish, and so the blessings on him just keeps pouring in.
And since June 6 is gonna be his 26th birthday, in which Hyun Joong will be busy for the concert on that day, the Chinese organizer set for the concert tickets on June 6, had Hyun Joong affixed his signature on the tickets and set off to auction for charity. Isn’t that great??
My apologies I did not included the Q & A portion of the interview, since most of the questions were already been asked, in the recent press conference in Singapore. Although there are a few which I just have to reserve for next article. Hyun Joong was given a gold tiger stamp by the Chinese organizer as their way of appreciating Hyun Joong’s presence.
The tiger represents the Chinese sun sign of Hyun Joong since he was born in the year of the tiger.  And there’s a significant ceremony with a crystal ball as Hyun Joong joined by other Chinese sponsors, which I would like to find out what was that all about.
I think we have every reason to be optimistic as far as Hyun Joong’s career future is concern. Like what he always say, believe in your dreams. Although he has lots more to work on but his dream is just within his reach and time fly so fast and so with his career development. We have so much to look forward to, as Hyun Joong successfully executes his plans that every fan is being proud of.
Well, I never knew Hyun Joong has another title given by his Chinese fans which is Asian Emperor of China. We have the Prince to protect, or maybe the Prince had actually grew up into an Emperor! Why not, as time flies Hyun Joong just grew up for another one year as he turns 26 next month, the more successful he is.
As the Prince climb his ladder of success, he grows up into Asian Emperor as he makes another step up to the top…. I’m very proud of being a Kim Hyun Joong fan.
