[Pexers Write-Ups] Kim Hyun Joong’s Celebrity Life: A Life Of Stopovers
Author: AprilStarr (Pexers Write-Ups on FB)
It used to be we encounter the word stopovers when we refer to airlines’ splitting the long haul trips to two or even three or more to refuel, unload/load passengers, or change crew and for other reasons (being hijacked?). It is acceptable (sometimes not) respite from the airplane’s minimum spaces and to be able to stretch one’s legs and breathe fresher air.
Come to think of it, our lives had been nothing but stopovers particularly now with incessant changes around us be they events, people, our own needs and requirements. Some people detest changes -the momentary stops we meet along the way. Others welcome them as they come with opportunities though others are resigned to their occurrences. Yet some mark stopovers as milestones. Some rush towards them or slowly approach them with caution until they reach their final destinations.
Kim Hyun Joong, a veteran of stopovers, must be right when he says one needs timing. That is of course preferred but in many instances their inevitability happen. Not all of his own stopovers were of his own accord and not all bright and cheery. He by his own admission felt “helpless and useless” by events and circumstances but he was able to get over them to move on and be steadfast in that ‘stopover’. He has had several stopovers ever since, learning what went wrong, accepting its temporariness and improving from life’s lessons.
As a celebrity he lived in fishbowl existence that is why we saw where he had been (boyband leader, actor/model, businessman, solo artist, philanthropist, producer of concert and albums,etc), see where he is at the moment as he is heading for the big ocean with his world tour.
He has shared with us his plans and schedules (part of his timing), some are unavoidable only postponed to a certain extent like military service. Some can be forever withheld if he decides so like marriage.
The ocean of celebrities is vast, unwieldy, uncontrolled. Who knows when scandals can come up and destroy painstakingly built images and reputation. When wealth are invested wrongly and gone, bad economy (money spent on supporting celebrities are are considered extra income), domestic and international disasters and many more can wreck havoc.
On the other hand, the ocean is full of possibilities -it is up to the celebrities to keep themselves afloat. Somehow there will be terra firma, the solid earth somewhere out there to turn possibilities to opportunities.Or they can wait for someone to throw them lifesavers.
Not Kim Hyun Joong who has now his stopovers planned on his own time. In his new album he dons a bright orange-peach jacket with his blond mane while staring out the open rusting,rotting window.He looks pensive, is now the time to fly out once again and leave the old structures and setting behind?
Will you be there for him?
