On June 23rd, SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong and Heo Young Saeng guested on KBS 2TV’s “Happy Together” and shared stories related to food and cosplay uniforms.

Kim Hyun Joong revealed that he had gone to a jjambbong (Chinese style spicy noodles with seafood) restaurant notorious for its spicy noodles right after completing a music program schedule. He daringly ordered the spiciest on the menu despite the chef personally coming out and advising him against it.

Two minutes after taking his first bite, Kim Hyun Joong explained that he began sweating profusely. After six minutes, he rushed to the bathroom because of stomach pains, and eventually passed out.

He later heard from his manager that he had fainted in the bathroom, showing only the whites of his eyes. Hilariously, the chef watched him ride off in an ambulance with a smile.

The leader also revealed that he had bought a schoolgirl outfit made for cosplay when SS501 first visited Japan after seeing Heo Young Saeng buy a Chinese school outfit.

When the MCs asked if he had ever tried it on, he replied, “I have it hung up as decoration.” He emphasized that he had merely purchased it because there were a lot of cosplay outfits in the stores, and he was fascinated by them.

Heo Young Saeng added, “I bought it with a pure heart just because I thought the clothes were pretty, but a lot of people misunderstood me and thought I was going to make a girlfriend wear it or something.”

Solo singer Kim Hyun-joong has made quite the successful comeback, selling 100,000 copies of his album already.

According to album sales tracking agency, Hanteo Chart, on June 22nd, Kim sold 80,000 copies of his mini album “Break Down” in just the first two weeks. Another 20,000 were sold until now making total sales clock in at about 100,000 copies.

During times when albums are no longer the popular choice of music purchases, this figure is quite significant. So significant that the popular star is the first solo singer to have made such sales. He’s in good company of other idol groups like Big Bang and TVXQ who have accomplished the same feat as a group.

According to KEYEAST, Kim is planning on embarking on his Asia Tour in August. This is expected to only increase sales.

The singer-turned-actor undoubtedly faced much pressure to stand on his own two feet as a singer after the members of SS501 all signed with different management companies when their contract with DSP Entertainment ended. Already having reached number on a popular music ranking live performance show, it’s clear that he’s doing just fine flying solo.

During a recent recording of KBS2’s “Happy Together,” Kim Hyun Joong surprised everyone by confessing that he bought a schoolgirl costume in the past. He stated, “When SS501 first went to Japan, we came across a cosplay store.” Cosplay is short for “costume play,” and participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character. In Japan, these characters are often drawn from popular mangas.

Kim Hyun Joong said, “Heo Young Saeng bought a Chinese dress-like outfit from the store. So I went to the same place and purchased the schoolgirl costume.” When asked whether he wore it, he answered, “I have it displayed.” He emphasized, “There were other various costumes at the cosplay store, like police uniforms. I merely bought the schoolgirl uniform because it looked cool.”

Heo Young Saeng added, “We purchased the costumes because they were pretty, nothing else. However, people misunderstood and thought we were going to give it to our girlfriends.” This episode of “Happy Together” will air tonight, June 23rd, at 11:15PM KST.
