[English Trans] Excerpts from Sportsworld Interview on 13 April 2014

Translation from Korean to Chinese: 爱贤21度C
Translation from Chinese to English: June from LovingKimHyunJoong

Maybe I’m greedy… if we were to talk about what I’d like to do before going into the army, doesn’t matter if it’s a movie, or a drama, I’d just like to film another work. I’d though that by the end of shooting for this drama, my energy would have run out. But then, there are still many things which I’d not yet done. I feel the emergence of a lot of power every day. A world tour will be held after the release of album this June, which I think should be the final stage for Kim Hyun Joong as dance singer. After that I’d like to find music that I can do. I think it is time to do my own music, my own composition and lyrics.

[Pexers Write-Ups] Yes, Hyun Joong There’s Life After Inspiring Generation

Author:  AprilStarr/Pexers Write-Ups on FB

Supercharged and still on high just after the last curtain fell on the Inspiring Generation shooting set, Hyun Joong was besieged by interviewers. But of course, who wouldn’t want to hear from the newly born action star aka Hyun Joong, the rediscovered actor?

Just like his character Shin Jung Tae who tirelessly go from battle to battle like the battery commercial, Hyun Joong went about disclosing in indefatigable manner how he managed getting inside the skin and shoes of his character.Was he possessed by Jung Tae or did he take over Jung Tae?

Jung Tae was the writer and director’s creation but it was Hyun Joong who interpreted him and who breathe life into him. Jung Tae’s world became his -his woes and misfortunes, adventures and scoring successes, finding friends and love in a strange place, able to start all over again even in a depressing time full of hopes.

For Hyun Joong, Jung Tae was more than a mask to temporarily wear, for he saw again through him ‘winning is not about fighting skills but more by determination” and what it means. Oh so true to life, in particular his own life in showbiz.

In as much as he told us, being in Inspiring Generation is acquiring more than what book can provide or even degree on acting one can get from school. It was one huge learning experience with its physical, emotional and mental involvement of one to the point of exhaustion. Working with the pros and in the winter weather on to the early days of Spring IG perhaps has left Hyun Joong different memories than the others in the cast.

Now he knows what unbridled emotions and physical strength can make him do and say. The immersion in the drama as per his experience is totalling absorbing, it is hard to disengage. There oughta be a law on debriefing actors after their show is over and done.

Like being in a time machine in this drama as he himself said it, he happen to know how to flip the switch back to the future as Kim Hyun Joong, the singer. His trip to Jeju to rest, go scuba-diving,play golf was the intermission number.

After Inspiring Generation he promised himself not to do action drama/movie for his next work. Maybe try something else, like being a psychopath, a villain, a lighter and happy role. Varied roles are for the better rather than be typecasted into one.

In his re-entry into the stage as a singer dancer after a seriously challenging drama, he must have given the former a different appreciation. AS he has stated, dancing choreography is more difficult than fight choreography. The stage is more exacting and demanding, no retakes and NG’s, can be made unlike a drama that can be ” scrubbed clean” in the back room before its public release (inserting or removing background sound,correcting lighting, dubbing and voice over,etc.)

Could it be that what made him think of a shift in career path? To leave and quit his decade long dance music by 2015.

Or did IG give him a mirror to see himself anew and made him realistic? Or he is also pragmatic in that as he age he sees the limitation of being in a Kpop world.

As is known, idol careers have a short life span. There are competitions and it gets fiercer by the day. It is good idols try acting and other related fields like emceeing TV shows, being DJ in radios shows, songwriting, album production, stage management among others. Through these side work idols can have a taste of what else they can do and what skills they need to develop.

Hyun Joong also knows what he wants to do and is determined to make them happen.

He has bid goodbye to Shin Jung Tae and his world of the 1930′s.

Yes, Hyun Joong there’s life after Inspiring Generation -a wide, wide world awaits you.

BIG BIG THANKS to LALA for translating …………

Translation  C redit: 

It’s been awhile to meet you with a clean look. I am filled with emotions. (audience laughing)

I didn’t eve know how to leave Jung Tae after finishing the drama. By the way I came back to Seoul yesterday from a trip, and I feel like I have pretty much turned back to Kim Hyun Joong.

As soon as I came back to Seoul, I have recorded (songs) for Japanese new album.
I am preparing to turn back to a singer Kim Hyun Joong.
(after saying this, HJ asked to the interpreter if he had talked about his plan for releasing the Japanese album before and said, sometimes he talked too much about this and that and that might have confused people working with him. lol)
I am working very hard on this album to show different aspects of Kim Hyun Joong, you may look forward to it.

I started (shooting) the drama from a cold winter and have finished in spring.
It ended with a feeling of spring-like warmth so I am happy but also have mixed feelings (feel relieved and missing at the same time).

Many people are pulling for me that I have improved as an actor, and I’d like to act and show more improvement soon again.
Actually, I am reading one or two scripts so I think I can show another side of me (as an actor) again, after the album promotion.
There’s no fixed plan yet, but I have finished a period drama, so I am just thinking about a present-day drama in the next year.

I wanted to have a break to be healed because I felt physically and mentally tired after the drama.
So I planned to hold press conferences for two days in a row right after finished the drama and left for Jeju Island on the next day.
I took a plenty of rest in Jeju going scuba-diving and playing golf and that gave me energy, much enthusiasm for my work.

I can’t say one best scene (among the drama) but the most memorable line is “Fighting is not only about a skill (strength), the one who more determined wins.”
I think we will realize sometime in our life that when we are determined and eager, we can archive something rather than when we are strong.

It’s going to be difficult to cry if I think “I have to act at this crying scene.” The world in the drama was not real, created by the script, but I believed in the world existing and I thought I was the one really living in the world. Even if Kim Hyun Joong didn’t love with (in reality), I had to keep being in harmony other actors in order to have emotions toward them, such as hatred or love so that I could naturally identify with the character and have emotions. When understanding the role as a round character rather than a flat one, I could deliver the character’s thoughts and feelings even if they were not written in the script.

Kim Hyun Joong and Shin Jung Tae were two different persons having different personalities, but I tried to understand Shin Jung Tae. For example, I have my family and father with me but Shin Jung Tae misunderstood his father and even lost his father. I had been seeing and thinking through Shin Jung Tae’s eyes and kept stacking up the feelings, then at some point, I could explode them. I enjoyed the experiences when I felt the character’s feelings stacked up for real and delivered them to the audience.

At the scene that Ok Ryeon passed away, I was outraged for real. (The interpreter said HJ’s eyes looked different at the scene.) I don’t usually fight or speak a bad word in real life but at the scene I found myself ad-libbing swear words. So I messed up the scene, and had to shoot it again and again. After all the bad word was covered with B.G.M when the scene aired.

Even if I have been working out, I don’t have much experience of action scenes so I didn’t expect I could be fit for the action role. I think I am used to memorizing dance choreography, and that helped me memorizing action choreography faster. The drama went through the lack of shooting time, but we managed to show great action scenes til the end. The action director did his best to choreograph also I tried to memorize and learn to show more.

I had kinda good-looking hands, but now I have calluses and bruises on my hands. I consider the calluses and bruises as badges of honor. I don’t think I will show another action drama for a while.

Memorizing dance choreography is more difficult for me than memorizing action choreography. When I filmed action scenes, I could naturally throw a fist having hatred and my body instinctively reacted to dodged (the opponent’s fist). However, a mistake while dancing on stage will make me scared stiff.

Because I practiced punching everyday for that quickness, I could really punch faster.
(Hyun Joong is asked to show his punches.)
I used to practice it everyday though..

It is hard to understand for you, but sometimes I had to memorize (the choreography) at a glance to film it quickly when we had very little time to film the scene. In such a case, we (the opponent and I) promised that if we would unexpectedly beat or be beaten for real, we should quickly stand up no matter how it hurt. Actually I was beaten up for real while shooting an action scene but I had to keep filming the scene because, once I showed I was in pain, we would have to film from the beginning.

Maybe I might be naturally resilient to physical attacks? I feel more comfortable when I get beaten up than I beat up.

I watched the final episode with actors together. We didn’t have an official finale party so I asked people to come together and watched the drama finale drinking some beer.

As what I’ve said at the interview, for our or your ancestors, 1930′s was the age of intensity. In 1930′s they were poor and possessed almost nothing … (*sorry, the clip ends up here. also sorry, it’s a really rough trans.)
