Hyun Joong has been nominated world’s best male artist for this year’s World Music Awards.
It had been two years since gorgeous K-pop star Kim Hyun Joong visited the Land of Smiles when he returned to perform at Thunder Dome on August 24. The 28-year-old singer, who recently released his album Timing, was in Bangkok as part of his 2014 Kim Hyun Joong World Tour.
The two hour concert was a great showcase of Hyun Joong’s versatile abilities. The singer started the concert energetically, looking splendid in a black outfit as he performed the catchy electro dance songs “Let Me Go,” “Unbreakable” and “Break Down.”
Hyun Joong’s Thai Henecia fan club responded to first three fun songs wildly. Hyun Joong said that his Thai fans screamed louder than anybody else. The singer revealed that he wasn’t morning person, but said that he was very energetic in the evening. Since the concert was held in the evening, he promised to be very active.
Throughout the concert, Hyun Joong moved his nice body beautifully. He also satisfied his fans with fine singing and breathtaking choreography. The star sang impressively on the emotional ballad “When Today Passes,” which was recorded for the soundtrack of Hyun Joong’s latest action drama TV series, Inspiring Generation.
At one point during the concert, Hyun Joong said that he was looking for the most beautiful Thai girl there to join him onstage. The lucky girl turned out to be a 6-year-old kid, who was about to start crying while the star sang “I’m Your Man.” The girl’s mother came to sit with her, and Hyun Joong joked that he didn’t expect to sing for two women onstage.
Hyun Joong entertained his fans with 23 songs, and Henecia obviously enjoyed the show. They enthusiastically sang and boogied along to the dance songs, and listened quietly to the ballads. During the song “Lucky Guy,” everybody clapped and sang along loudly. The fans became frantic when Hyun Joong sang “Please” and took his T-shirt off. The singer teased his fans about particularly liking that song a lot.
During the encore, Hyun Joong moved closer to his fans while singing “Your Story,” “Please” and “Do You Like That.” The fans were flattered to hear the singer say that he would bring their affection home with him, and that he would never forget their warm hearts.
