Best known as the leader of SS501 and beloved for his role as Yoon Ji Hoo in the hit drama Boys Over Flowers and Baek Seung Jo in Mischievous Kiss, Kim Hyun Joong returns to Manila this time as a solo artist ready to conquer the world with his talent, charm, 4D wit, and heart of gold.

Sparkling Magazine:  Tell us about your first mini-album Break Down. Which song from the album is your favourite?

KHJ:  I prepared a lot for my debut as a solo artist. I tried so many different things and experimented with various sounds and music genres which you can enjoy when you listen to my album. All songs are great, but "Break Down" is my favorite.

Sparkling Magazine:  What did you consider when choosing the songs to be included in your album?

KHJ:  I feel the most important thing is the performance on stage, so I chose songs that would be good to perform live. I trained heavily for the live performances in terms of singing and dancing.

Sparkling Magazine:  Which musician has influenced you the most?

KHJ:  I like so many musicians, but for me Seo Taiji is the most important.

Sparkling Magazine:  You used to play bass guitar in high school. Do you want to perform in a band again in the future?

KHJ:  Yes-maybe after five more years of singing and dancing I can focus on having my own band and performing other genres of music.

Sparkling Magazine:  We heard you're very active football player. What do you love best about the game?

KHJ:  I was told that Filipinos also like football very much. What I love about it is that it gets me active: you can do so many things when playing football and the exercise is very healthy. I'm part of the FC MEN football team. (Ed's note:  an all-star team including JYJ's Junsu (and his twin hyung Junho), Yoochun, and Jaejoong, B2ST's Doojoon and Gikwang, 2AM's Changmin, actors Song Joong Ki and Kim Bum, and even Shinhwa's Minwoo, anong other.) It isn't a professional football team so we just do what we want and play games whenever we can.

Sparkling Magazine:  Did you ever imagine you would be an endorser for a beauty brand? How do you feel about representing The Face Shop?

KHJ:  I never imagined that I would be an endorser for The Face Shop, but since I've become one I'm very happy and proud. Since it's the number-one beauty brand in Korea and also a global brand, I feel it will help me as I work to become a global celebrity.
