Kim Hyun Joong is a True Artist with the Rare Ability to Evoke an Intense and Visceral Emotional Response Leaving us Helpless and Happy in the Intoxication of Bliss
I downloaded Kim Hyun Joong’s live version of ‘Creep’ by Radiohead performed at Budokan 2012 from Youtube again last night. I had this song on my old phone, and lost it when I changed phones. I finally found it again and have been playing it on repeat all morning and fighting back tears. I am not sad. I am moved. This song was a popular tune in the United States about 20 years ago. I liked the song when it was playing on the radio stations here constantly during it’s height. I did not purchase the song and I did not go to any of their concerts or anything like that. I liked the song. That was all. Now, I LOVE this song! Not just because Kim Hyun Joong covered it, but because of HOW he covered it. When I listen to his little introduction before starting the song, I can’t understand a word of what he is saying in Korean. It doesn’t matter. Just the gentle sound of his voice, and the inflections he makes when he makes a joke in Japanese and teases the fans makes me feel warm and happy. I don’t need to understand the words he is saying, because I understand the Emotion he is Evoking. This happens all before he even sings the first note.
Once he starts singing, I am dead on my feet. Shot through the heart by the emotion filled notes. His voice is so tender, gentle, beautiful. Even when he says: “Your’re so f***ing special,” a profane word that usually offends me to hear, still seems so sweet and cute. He even makes a profanity a blessing with his sweet delivery! LOL! At the end of the song when he belts out the high note with all of his power, I am completely gone. I am lost and drifting in this beautiful feeling. THIS is the mark of a TRUE ARTIST. He took a song that did not impress me that much and turned it into one of my favorite songs. I am in love with it and have been listening to it now for 4 straight hours. It’s kind of in the background while I’m working, but when I have little pauses in my work, I am able to just relax and feel deep peace washing over me. This is the effect of the Artist Kim Hyun Joong. His voice and manner bring deep Peace and Tranquility even while covering a song that has very depressing lyrics, actually. Here are the English Lyrics:

Cyber Bullying the Celebrities
Author: AprilS Pexers Write-Ups on FB
Celebrities are high profile people -their exposure goes viral in seconds. Their public activities even private affairs make the splash and flash points. Compared to ordinary folks what they say or do get magnified in almost unbelievable proportion.
With cellphones practically performing unlimited functions anything gets captured and in the blink of an eye gets distributed and consumed by those using social media networks. Media on the other hand repeats with impunity what has been published ad nauseam. Because it sells at the moment.
Is there a problem there? Not when the information being passed around is accurate and timely. Not when pictures posted aren’t the result of manipulated images. Not when comments posted are done responsibly and not done to harass and bully the object of hatred.
We have heard the phrase -he deserves to be punished with what he has done stated in so many ways. Initial reaction out of shock may have been understandable, but the prolong and habitual hatred postings are not acceptable. The online forum has not and will never replace the processes involved in Judicial system. It is plain and simple cyber mob.
This is not to absolve the celebrities prone to risky and risqué behaviour.Or those who violate social norms -they are not supposed to be licensed to be above the rest for they are role models and icons.
Unseen faces have turned to amorphous figures using accusatory and hurtful words based on hearsay. Or simply hatred ? Are these the Cyber vigilantes?
Why do this thing happen?
One interesting observation was made by Facebook team head that has been researching this phenomenon partly explained the cyber mob behaviour. Humans are evolved to do face to face interactions -we look at each other’s eyes (and I include body language as well ) to see reactions. We produce our responses the same way. What happens when we do less and less face to face ?
In the development of language and other means of communication, babies learn to smile to a carer’s smiles, feel the rejection or a negative emotion and cry as a result. We seem to have lost that in communicating in cyberspace. We replaced them with emoticons. We create online transnational communities with common threads of liking or hating. We become friends or unfriend another. In so doing are we not perhaps on the verge of slowly losing a part of the foundation of our humanity? Could it explain hostilities in cyberspace?
Be that as it may we cannot pass the blame to social technology. Social technology in its various forms are the means of getting connected. But it is us the users who determine how they are going to be used. Unfortunately, many do not know how to use it responsibly. In short it has been misused and abused.
Cyberbullying is misusing and abusing social technology. But more than that is it has threatened another person’s integrity. Already the move to curb excesses is said to be on-going. There must be a price to pay for cyber bullying.

★★ (Notice 2) English version★★
Based on the previous notice, we would like to report the progress made in seeking legal action.
The persons in charge of the overall processes, as the representatives of KHJ fandom,
Around 20 cyber sites are located for continuous monitor and material captures.
If you can assist in material captures, please let us know your availability in your response comment to this notice. The gallers with permanent ids will get the list of the cyber sites to be monitored and captured in the Gall guest book. After reviewing the list, please let us know your preferences for the sites to be assigned. The gallers with temporary ids may leave your availability in response comment below and also in the Gall guest book in order to get the list.
In case you are unable to assist in a consistent manner, you may still continue to capture defamatory posts and send them to those persons in charge soon to be selected.
As you may already know, these processes may not be possible by the participation of few, but possible only by the very active and vigorous participation of all gallers. We would like to request the participation of all of you who want to help out in any manner.
The use of the file name in a unified way is requested for the orderly organization of materials.
Please store your materials under a file name coded in the order of date-cyber site name-title of the post-the name of the person posting(eg. 140925-Iibe-KHJnoEvidence-thePerson’sName.pdf)
There will be two teams for material management.
- data collection team (continuous monitor and data captures of the selected cyber sites)
- organization team (classification and organization of the collected data)
The opening of a bank account and the account number will be notified in the future.
A bank account will be opened under the group name of KHJ Gallery for financial support, when a lawyer is hired and legal action is actually on the way.
We’d like to emphasize that seeking legal action against the defamation of KHJ’s reputation is an independent action by KHJ’s fandom.
★★ (Notice 3) English version★★
A report for the first consultation with a lawyer
This is to report the information from the first consultation with lawyer.
1. Question regarding whether a third party, though not the party concerned, may file a legal case to have investigation undertaken for legal punishment
-> [a third party] may not need the consent of the agency or the party concerned in order to take legal action and submit a complaint to have investigation undertaken.
2. Selection and submission of data that may satisfy criminal evidence criteria
-> A screening process for the captured materials so far is needed to select data satisfying legal evidence criteria in proving transparent and intentional defamation
The criteria for the selection are as follows
1) dissemination of false information about KHJ
False information is a posting (publication) of speculative rumors which are not reported in news articles. An example is that KHJ’s finger bruise is the bruise he got while hitting the accuser.
2) continued and repeated act of posting and disseminating drip photos under the same IP or ID
When 6 wk injury and rib drips get to be posted and disseminated repeatedly, they may prove to have continued and repeated defamatory intention and be subject to legal punishment. So please capture the continued and repeated publication and dissemination of the drips.
3) act of posting and disseminating hate response comments or the content continuously and repeatedly.
This act may prove to have deliberate defamatory intention and be subject to legal punishment.
These are the materials satisfying criminal evidence criteria that the lawyer asks to have in order to file a criminal complaint. The major issue in proving crime is the deliberate defamatory intention in the act of disseminating false information. When a person publishes and disseminates continuously and repeatedly, it is proved to have deliberate intention and subject to legal punishment.
When you send us materials, please bear in mind the criteria above mentioned, and provide us materials of continued and repeated publication and dissemination of false information and defamatory statements. Storing the materials for the same IP or ID in one file may help those in charge of data management.
Please send the materials to email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
