Dedicated to SS501 4D Leader Kim Hyun Joong

[Pexers Write-Ups] I Came, I Saw, I Concert


Author:  AprilStarr

Dedicated to Ellen-Happy Birthday, dear !

I came, I saw, I concert, Kim Hyun Joong might as well said it as he proceeds nonstop to the rest of the Phantasm Concert 2014 course.   Launched in Seoul in July, then the Tour proceeded to Taiwan and lately two back to back concerts in Yokohama,Japan. Chinese cities will be next and on to the rest of the planned 7 countries.

He has done concerts before. Many concerts in fact. But the latest ones seem to be the concerts he wanted to do for a long time, that is, a world tour as a solo artist and to remember those events when his carrarius interruptus begins. Military service, though his contemporaries as well as those who went ahead consider it career interruption, is a mandated service to the country. Many have plans or already in execution of their pre-MS works, while some went to fulfill their duty without any flair,nor noise. Hyun Joong seem to be looking forward to the new challenge, always flexible, semper flexibilis.

By all means he wants to have well etched memories of the 2014 concerts. How? By being on his best toes. By looking good as usual. By being the enthusiastic performer immersed in enjoying his encounter with his fans. By recording in his phone the show of force and support his fans gave him.

While his concert is named Phantasm which means to be only in the mind as in fantasy, his new songs as well as those already his trademark numbers(will a concert be a concert without Please and its Jitjoong?), his being in the flesh and bone even going down to shake hands and the very presence of his fans Are Not imaginations but as real as they get. The immense sea of green lights glowing in the dark are sights to behold. The adoring crowd went beyond appreciative, he might as well shout out Magistar Mundi Sum! (I am Master of the Universe!).

But he doesn’t; instead focused on the fulfillment of his goal as a musical artist. He is the true professional who doesn’t stop exploring and doing the possibilities. A promise fulfilled to himself and most of all to his fans.

As he often said, this concert is his last before MS, he is I think telling us unlike generals who had beaten their chests after winning their battles, his is an unfinished business. His battlecry remains the same: HWAITING (fighting)!


Thanks Ms Dean for this article …. so sorry for the late updates… and Thanks for the greets 😀 😀 😀

And this goes to our readers as well.   It’s been a hectic week.  It was a splendid birthday week though so no complains from me.  I just missed KHJ sooooo much.  Anyway, rest assured we will post all the events even they are late ……………..

    Living in the USA, I wish that it had been possible for him to do at least one show here before entering the military service, but unfortunately it was not possible this time around. Perhaps in the future, after military service, and if he wishes, we will welcome him here. Nevertheless, it is nice to see him receiving so much loving support from his fans all over the world. He is so worthy and deserving. Being an entertainer seems to be an exciting life compared to ours (mine, at least), but we all know how much of one’s personal life is sacrificed for the extremely hard work and sheer will that goes into attaining and living that lifestyle. We love him for who he is and, in return, I believe that a large part of Hyun Joong’s heart lies within his fans.

      Yes, Carole the performer’s life is an alluring occupation. Their ultimate high as they receive from their public the acclaim have often been romanticized. It is a fabled existence when you are under the watchful eyes of both fans and anti-fans as even behind the scenes are also explored. In that context he once said he longed for even a day as an ordinary person.

      As a US fan also.. While I wish he’s be able to do a concert in the US.. the problem is that I live in the midwest, so even if he did come, it would probably be to California LA area.. and I still wouldn’t get to see him, and that might make me feel even worse!! But I’m thankful to all the fans around the world that post clips, and hopefully there will be a DVD release? I think he’s going to enjoy his military service.. doing something that’s not in the public eye may be a true personal growth time for him.. but I sure hope he comes back and does more music and acting.. I’ll be watching from the US.
