Lee Seung Gi: Well, It looks likes you two are closer than I thought, did you call him or get some advice from him before you came here?

Kim Hyun Joong: The writers of this show asked me if I can call him. This could be my first request to him. I said, “Hyeong, May I ask you a favor? I’m going to appear in “Strong Heart”, in the show, will a telephone call with you be possible?” He responded, “Sure, It’s your first request, of course I’ll grant you a favor.”

KHJ: But, I think he was confused with “Three Wheels”. He sent me a text message like this, “I’m nervous about the quiz”. So, I said, “Hyeong! (bro), just do it comfortably.”, and he said, “I’m nervous about the quiz” and drew emotions for crying like this, ㅜ. ㅜ.

His agency told StarNews on 8-June “(Kim) HyunJoong said that his height is 181cm.

When being questioned if Yoo JaeSuk used heel inserts during the broadcast at that time, he responded “We didn’t check with Yoo JaeSuk’s agency so we do not know.”

After being known as the leader of SS501, and then as an actor, since debuting some six years ago, Kim Hyun Joong is ready to embark on a new path as a solo singer.

Having released his solo mini-album “Break Down” earlier this week, Hyun Joong becomes the fourth SS501 member to do so with Kim Kyu Jong the only one not to have released a solo album.

His title track, “Break Down“, was composed by Steven Lee and is classified as a ’south urban dance track’ which combines powerful electric brass and synth sounds to create an energetic track right from its beginning phases, and has a dynamic choreography to ensure a strong performance.

He also performed “Please“, which is a pop R&B track, featuring a beautiful piano melody and a heavy orchestra arrangement that brings out the sadness of the lyrics and “Let Me Go” as well.

Kim Hyun Joong has finally revealed his thoughts about the hit KBS drama, “Boys Over Flowers“.

The idol appeared on the June 8th broadcast of MBC’s “Knee-Drop Guru” and talked about his singing career as well as about his personal life.

He started talking about how he got to play a significant role in “Boys Over Flowers”, saying, “I received a phone call from the ‘Boys Over Flowers’ production company. I didn’t know what it was, so for the first time in my life, I read a romantic-comedy manga. It was quite difficult to read because [in the manga], the characters had stars in their eyes and they were too blinding.

On June 8th, Kim Hyun Joong guested on MBC’s “Knee-Drop Guru” and talked about his training period before his debut with SS501.

He began by describing the strict environment of his former label, DSP Media: “It’s a company that makes you fend for yourself. As a trainee, I’d clean up the recording room in the morning and run 20 laps around the field. Every day, they’d add another lap until I reached 40. We also had to eat fast.”

He continued, “When we were being trained in singing, eight of us would be in one small room and had to sing together. It was hard to concentrate on what you were singing.”

MC Kang Ho Dong commented, “Your CEO at the time is known for being quite the scary man.” Kim Hyun Joong replied, “He was hard, but we said everything we wanted to. Even if he said, ‘What do you mean you need dancers, it’s just extra expenses,’ we would still say that we needed dancer hyungs and he’d listen and comply. He was like a father, and he would call me son. He thought cutely of me.”

When asked about SS501’s rivals at the time of their debut, he mused, “We were half confident in our ability to stand on equal footing with TVXQ. We thought of sneakily going from behind and then bursting out in front. It wasn’t necessarily a plan, but just the atmosphere at the time. The public naturally set it up like that for us.”

Reflecting back to his debut on June 8th, 2005, Kim Hyun Joong concluded, “After our first broadcast, I teared up. I think it’s because of that sense of achievement and because I remembered everything we had gone through as trainees.”

Kim Hyun Joong has returned as a solo artist and gave a word of thanks to his fans with tears pouring from his eyes.

On June 7th, after his mini-album “Break Down” release showcase was over, he read a letter that he wrote from his heart to his fans.

He pulled out a letter and revealed his heartfelt feelings, “I’ve always been able to show my outer-self on stage, but I’ve never been able to show my heart to them. But I’ve finally gained enough courage to write this letter to share my feelings with my fans”.

Kim Hyun Joong read, “It’s already been 6 years since I’ve met every one. I thank you for believing in me and cheering for me all this time and never changing,” and he confessed, “I started looking back while I was working on the album. I realized how important the meaning of ‘together’ is”.

He continued, “I started feeling pressure and fear as I was trying to do this alone. It was hard to defeat this… I looked back over the past year, fans fighting and misunderstandings, only being able to watch over the situation made me think to myself, ‘I guess I have limits, too,” as his eyes started tearing.

He ended by saying, “I worked hard on the album by imagining how happy the fans would be looking at it. I hope that you will all be smiling and be even happier in the future.”

He added, “This album is not mine, but belongs to everyone. I’m very thankful to everyone that showed up here, and I want to tell everyone with my heart that I love you”.

Kim Hyun Joong recently talked about the reason why SS501 members decided to pursue their own careers.

The singer was a guest on MBC’s “Knee-Drop Guru” and elaborated on the statement that he has made previously on “Radio Star“, saying, “If the agency doesn’t force me out, I don’t want to either.”

He stated, “That statement was made when we had 5 months remaining on our contract. There was one more scheduled album to be released. I didn’t talk about the issues dealing with the agency with my members at the time. When our album promotions were over, we talked it over with all the members.”

He apparently told his members, “Didn’t we show almost everything that SS501 can do together as one? I don’t want to disband, but I think it’d be good if we could also pursue our own paths. After talking with the members, we each pursued the paths according to our own colors.”

When asked about the time when the CEO of his past agency (DSP Media) fainted due to health problems, he said, “I was a little fortunate that I had the opportunity to say, ‘I’m sorry’ to him before he fainted. If I didn’t tell that to him then, I couldn’t have come out like this today. If I won an award for a drama or on a music program, I wanted to say to him, ‘I did well. Please be healthy.’”

SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong revealed an incident where he was mistaken to be actor Bae Yong Joon because he couldn’t speak Chinese.

On the June 7th broadcast of SBS’s “Strong Heart,” Kim Hyun Joong was a guest as a part of the ‘Special Strong Heart King of Kings’ episode.

During the broadcast, he revealed that people call him a “Bae Yong Joon look-alike” and “2nd generation Bae Yong Joon.” Because of the similarities, he was once mistaken as Bae Yong Joon by Chinese fans during the Asian Games. Kim Hyun Joong stated, “A Chinese fan asked for my autograph but handed me a picture of Yong Joon hyung.”

At that time, Kim Hyun Joong repeatedly stated in English, “No! No Bae Yong Joon,” because he couldn’t communicate with the Chinese fan. However, the Chinese fan misunderstood him and thought ‘Bae Yong Joon’ wouldn’t sign the autograph for him because he was annoyed by him. The fan persistently followed Kim Hyun Joong around until finally swearing at him and leaving his side.

Kim Hyun Joong stated, “Well, that’s how I got rid of one Bae Yong Joon fan” – drawing much laughter from the guests and audience.
