The pretty flower boy image in Korean drama series -- Boys Over Flowers and Playful Kiss -- that sent everyone head over heels is now a thing of the past.
No longer sporting a dark round wispy mane and all-white princely suits, Kim Hyun Joong lived up to his mini-album's masculine theme and appeared at The Face Shop press conference held in Hotel Michael, Resorts World Singapore, looking heaps manlier and suaver than before.
In town for Break Down's music promotions and his first solo showcase, Hyun Joong arrived in Singapore on Wednesday night to a cluster of local and international fans, screaming his name with each step he took. Apart from enjoying "a very nice lunch at the beach area" on Thursday, the 24-year-old shared that he has yet to visit Universal Studios Singapore because of his packed schedule.

Eight months after his visit to sunny Singapore, Kim Hyun Joong is back again as THEFACESHOP ambassador.
During these eight months, Kim Hyun Joong has been busy with his Breakdown mini-album as well as promotion for it. He wanted to have mini-concert in Singapore during this visit but his schedule did not permit him to do so. However, he mentioned that he plans to have a concert in Singapore early 2012 so fellow henecias, look out for his concert early next year!
Kim Hyun Joong revealed that he had a simple lunch at Sentosa’s beach yesterday. Although he did not visit Universal Studio Singapore due to his tight schedule, he was elated when his staff bought him a “Best Actor” t-shirt from USS. At the mention of a trophy of similar kind, Kim Hyun Joong hopes to buy it for himself when he is free to visit USS. He also does not mind if his fan buys the trophy as a gift for him.
When the emcee, Ah Ken from Radio 1003, express jealousy and curiousity of Kim Hyun Joong looking fresh and good despite his busy schedule, he revealed that he does not have a particular skincare regime, he eats what he likes and have plenty of sleep before his sleep. Kim Hyun Joong feels it is partly due to THEFACESHOP’s products that he uses.
Kim Hyun Joong would like to thank all the fans for the support for last year’s charity auction during his fanmeet and will be conducting another charity auction during this visit’s fanmeet. Other than his lifesize standee, another item to be auction off will be his limited edition Breakdown DVD that only has 10,000 of its kind produced in Korea. The limited edition DVD not only includes the music cd, but also footages of his activities since his Breakdown mini-album was produced. He feels greatful for these charity auctions and hopes to continue contributing through these charity auctions throughout his career in any country that he visits.
Together with Mr Leslie Low, Director of THEFACESHOP Singapore, and Ms Kelly Kwak, THEFACESHOP Korea marketing team leader, the latest product line from THEFACESHOP was also launched during this media event. Being a user of the latest product line of BB Cream, especially the Power Perfection BB Cream, Kim Hyun Joong feels that the easy to apply product provides high coverage, controls oil and is long lasting.
Q: The average Singaporean men are not used to using makeup like BB Cream, so how or what would you do to encourage them to use it?
A: Even in Korea, it used to be in such a way that the men are not really used to using makeup products. Now, there is a shift in culture, so men are looking more into taking care of their skin just like women. So I feel that Singaporean men can also take care of their skin by using THEFACESHOP products, especially the BB Cream.
