Kim Hyun Joong is an artist blessed with almost all the richness a man could ever have. For those who do not know him well, would say it’s his looks that gave him a huge popularity. I don’t think so, there are many Korean artists who are blessed with handsome outlook, and admittedly who has much better singing voice than Hyun Joong. But check on the billboard music chart during the time he debuted on his first two albums, Hyun Joong is the only solo artist racing up among the idol groups to the top.

In my article Solo Vs. Idol Groups, I asked myself, what happened to his other contenders at MAMA? There were I think at least five male soloist with the same category as Hyun Joong who sings and dance at the same time. Back then I couldn’t help to think, maybe people from the music industry thinks that the Artmatic back up dancers of Hyun Joong are also singer/dancers too!!! Oh but mind you, my hats off to Artmatic, they move and breath with Hyun Joong all at the same time, they have a perfect rapport with Hyun Joong.

Being a stage performer, it’s not only the singing voice that matters, but the totality of the performance, and stage appeal. Hyun Joong has a little of everything, this is how I explain it every time somebody would criticize him. He’s not the best singer, he’s not the best dancer, he’s not the best actor, but he has all this abilities. Put all of these abilities on stage in one person plus his handsome outlook, makes him a total performer. These are the factors that makes him unique among other performers.

So ladies if somebody criticize Hyun Joong, do not brag about your explanation, simply say “He has everything”.  Well, that’s reality, Hyun Joong may not be perfect but Hyun Joong definitely has a little of everything. At least that’s for now, wait until he gets developed, and  with his professional attitude, hard worker, determination in no time he get there perfectly.

Hyun Joong’s voice range has definite limits, and I would say I’m thankful for that. You know why? It is very natural for any professional singer to maximize their voice range and usually their music composer tends to create challenging songs for them maximizing their abulity. Meaning songs that can not be sang by none singers. Hyun Joong knows his voice range limits, and he knows how to choose his music.

Apparently his audience respond to his music, they can follow him, they can sing with him and they can sing his songs by themselves. In short, his music is well accepted by majority. Very smart guy isn’t he? He’s not a try hard artist to be forcing himself to sing beyond his voice range. Because he knows very well that in singing you don’t get to develop over night. Music development is a slow phasing process.

In showbiz public acceptance is vital to any artist. A while ago I was listening to Hyun Joong’s interview in Taiwan last year and he was asked if he was worried when he did his transformation, he response was, “I want my fans to see my manly side”. It is not only his entire image that change even his style in singing and dancing had changed. Hyun Joong wants to get away from the shadow of SS501 as a singer and he succeed with the full acceptance from his fans.

For five years that he was with SS501 he was saying, that was enough time to achieve the group’s goal to stay as one. This time he was given the liberty to do his own music which he had been aching for a long time. He grab this opportunity to learn for himself what he got. He sings what he want, he dances the way he wants and perform with full of dynamics and variation.
