[Pexers Write-Ups] 김현중 KIM HYUN JOONG: Loose Ends
Kim Hyun Joong Japan Mobile Site Update 2015.1.23
As in any continuing talks on and about KHJ which pundits say is very healthy he stays being talked about. It is free publicity positive or negative-thanks to the delusional haters as a cynic happily chuckled. It is reassuring people will never ran out of topics to talk about like his love life (past …present ?). Everyone has a bias and sometimes earn enemies because of it. Or becomes a “member” of camps with flags waving in the air. But wait till HJ surprises everyone (again?).
His state of wealth has often been compared with other idols,giving credence to the fact that Hallyuing brings enough moolah for them to be able to buy buildings and choice real estate properties, put up management companies and other conspicuous display of wealth, err, investments.
Awards and recognition is another battlefield where the combatants are really the fans not the artists. Dedication and efforts have been at stake here. It is living proof how invested fans are on their bias.
In a way celebrities are not celebrities in the true sense of the word (be they saintly, toxic, insane or whatever talent they acquired along the way) if there are no controversies aka scandals. The watchful eyes of media and the internet mob are forever looking for their prey. THERE ARE THOSE BETTER PREY THAN OTHERS.Their stories however convoluted and twisted sell. It is often said celebrities cannot be onion skinned because whether they like it or not must develop thick hides to survive perhaps emerged unscathed and stronger. Think of it as occupational hazard.
All the noise and the dust kicked in the air makes the entertainment industry truly entertaining. It is showbiz remember, and yet it is taken seriously by devotees. For example, in the current still raging “case” of KHJ is it really resolved as in closed with a period or just a comma or a question? People are driven up a wall with each “new” revelation like the so-called martial arts demo. What will they come up next? Somebody pleads please let someone come up with a firm ending and not speculations or “wish”.
Digging for the roots of them ‘why all of these happen to the only one’ have given birth to different conspiracy theories. It is also the mother drama of them all. Like the regular weekly, daily dramas we look forward to the next episodes. Makjangs and still yet other secrets to be revealed? Oh by the way, the ratings went up. Again. Truth is stranger than fiction as is always said.
