What do you do when you’re with the other members?

All we need is for the three of us to be together. Nothing else really matters. Just having them near me gives me strength. If I didn’t have them, I’d probably die. When you have a good friend, it doesn’t really matter how many times you see them in a year. I see Hyun Joong – Kim Hyun Joong – once or twice a year, but if anyone asked me who my three best friends are, he’d be on the list. Junsu recently texted me and asked, ‘What are you up to these days?’ and it made me feel really happy when I read it. I wanted to take a screenshot of it and upload it on my SNS account.

[News][Article] Kim Hyun Joong’s Drama Delayed

Via Suh de La Fuente/ Ann Tst

Fans waiting eagerly for Kim Hyun Joong’s return to the small screen will have to wait a little longer. Instead of airing in November, his new drama “Inspiring Generation” will now be shown early in 2014.
His upcoming drama has been replaced by Jang Geun Suk’s new drama “Pretty Boy.”

It’s not a question of preference, say the producers. It’s just that “Inspiring Generation” has proven to be a more complicated drama to film. As “Inspiring Generation” is a story set in 1930s Shanghai, the shooting schedule is dependent on the cooperation of the Chinese government and they have delayed permits for filming due to the Chinese mid-autumn festival.

“In order to start broadcasting in November, we have to start filming in China now,” said Lee Kang Hyun, director of KBS drama production. “However, because of certain Chinese holidays, the permission to film has been delayed.

Shooting will resume in November.

“If the location permit is delayed, then the 1930 Shanghai backdrop of the drama will not be complete, and that was a concern,” said Lee. “We thought that even if we have to postpone filming and fill that spot with another project, it would be better to capture the full essence of this new drama.”
“Inspiring Generation” is based on a manga of the same name, which focuses on love, friendship and patriotism.

It has been two years since singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong was last seen on the small screen. After appearing in “Boys Over Flowers’ as the sensitive Ji Hoo, he had a leading role in “Playful Kiss” in 2010. He was cast in the drama “City Conquest,” but earlier this year KBS denied the drama a time slot.

Kim was cast in “Inspiring Generation” after Lee Jun Ki and Kwon Sang Woo turned down the role due to scheduling conflicts. Also called “Age of Feeling,” the drama’s cast currently includes Lim Soo Hyang, Jo Dong Hyeok, Kim So Eun and Han Jung Soo.

“‘Inspiring Generation’ is a drama with very high expectations because Kim Hyun Joong is cast in it, so we want to make sure we can show viewers a complete drama that will fulfill those high expectations,” said Lee Kang Hyun.

Netizens hope that the suspension of “City Conquest” and the delay in filming “Inspiring Generation” will not discourage Kim Hyun Joong from acting. When he was first cast as Ji Hoo in “Boys Over Flowers,” he was reluctant to take an acting role as he thought it would detract from his musical career. But the fan base for his music as part of the band SS501 and as a solo singer has only grown because drama fans that discovered him onscreen also wanted to buy his music.



KIM HYUN JOONG Fans Unite For The New Album – 2013.09.15


Last weekend, fans of Kim Hyun Joong united at Astrovision Glorietta for a new album celebration. No matter what fans group each of them were from, as long as they shared the same love for the artist, they were welcomed with open arms.
It was a full blown event that had a program to get everyone involved and excited. Their beloved Kim Hyun Joong may have not been there but they definitely felt his presence just by being in the same room with their fellow fans.
There were dance numbers to his songs, games with Kim Hyun Joong merchandise prizes and even a raffle for everyone who bought a copy of the new album!
It was definitely a fans day to remember. No matter what age, young or old, no matter the gender, male or female, fans were able to see this as an opportunity to encourage each other to love Kim Hyun Joong even more.
