[Pexers Write-Ups] 김현중 KIM HYUN JOONG: Choosing His Own Adventures + LDFS April 2015 Wallpaper Calendar #neverleaveKHJ #2015KHJPhoenix
Author: AprilStarr Pexers Write-Ups on Facebook
We’ve been told life is a mix bag of adventures with no clear cut keys to its endings.
Education creates the paths or is a pathfinder. However, outside of that institution lays a myriad of challenges and yes, opportunities. What one does without stepping foot in it or in spite of it is another story.
It is often said it is up to the individual to choose his own road or allow others to select for him/her.Some go for the well beaten avenues, others make their own ways never mind the dust, the road imperfections,the junctures and crossroads.
Kim Hyun Joong’s choices are not for everyone. Maybe some of those choices resulted to some bad judgement and miscalculations here and there. False reading and faulty insights led to certain conclusions. But who does it right all the time anyway?
Besides, there is a private and public life -and a world of difference between the two. Where the private life intrude into the public and vice versa incongruence occurs. Expectations may not be met at least to the eyes of his public.
Life scripts are not always written the way we want them to . Because there are many characters we have to consider -their own motives and agenda besides our own. When ours and others do not coincide and endings cannot be neatly tied by nice colored ribbons trouble begins. And because he is a public figure looming larger than life, it creates not ripples but waves of disturbances.
Rewatching throwback videos makes one wonder and wish what if and if only things can be rewind back and undo what has been done. Rewriting history to travel backward and make the necessary cure and correction.
Or to have the warning like the drama Mirae’s Choice where the main protagonist encountered her future self and that self warned her of consequences of her choices at present.
Alas, our man cannot have those means. He can perhaps only look back like the rest of us, chuckle, and say ‘If I only knew then what I know now’.
Life’s adventures are not always given to us like a well written fairytale book whose endings are predictable like living happily ever after. Or slaying the bloated monsters of the kingdom and for the prize-the hand of the princess or the affection of the prince But those endings are getting to be boring after a while.
Kim Hyun Joong ‘s life saga is not written in the books. Some may wish for him to pursue his life events in its”proper sequences”. But he doesn’t, thank you very much. Is he an enigma? So many are already playing psychologists, counselors, soothsayers, faith healers, quack fortune tellers and horoscope readers in the attempt to understand him and put his ‘life in order’.
However, whatever final order in the present disorder we desire for him, it’s his life. In his own uniqueness, he choose and will continue to make his own adventures. He will find his way out and as he will will find there are more adventures to meet. The roads to take are aplenty ahead.

We don’t treat spaces equally. Some spaces are treated with dignity and respect.They command high prices and have good press releases. Others are not. Trash and other unmentionables are thrown in it. Or occupy it. Though it then becomes a political issue more than an economic concern.
We are in agreement if you say yes to space being symbolic of what is or what’s not important to a society. It could be spaces on the ground or what stands above it. Cyberspace offer unlimited virtual spaces.
Our senses specially the eyes have been so accustomed to focus on what’s in the spaces more than what is missing. It is called perception. Artists have discovered that certain arrangement of objects can show depth and distance.Photographers discovered that nature have a lot of it to offer.
Man-made spaces have created great cities, quaint towns, elegant and simple households. They have become iconic and landmarks. Companies and offices can show through their public spaces what they stand for, their prized possessions, their accomplishments.
One such office in Seoul show posters on their artists’ unforgettable and outstanding works. But lately an observation was made that allegedly one poster – that of Inspiring Generation is missing in its gallery. To the eyes of those sensitive to movements of any kind it indicated what they have been suspecting already happened. The beginning of an end of a relationship. One of these days. It is the Ides of March- a turning point. But for whom?
It is the case of what is no longer there.
If the rumoured parting of the ways this month (end of contract, non renewing of contract) has already began, it saddens the heart. The home is no longer a home? It was the nest that saw one artist (need I mention his name?)grew and develop his potentials. Outsiders think they saw relationships turned sour. Many had looked to ominous signs and yet wished in their heart of hearts that it isn’t so.
If parting really occurred it should be amicable and still sweet.Though it is the flowing waters under the bridge, the bridge shouldn’t be burned. The entertainment world is not that big. That blank space should no longer be there. That poster should be returned to the space it once occupied not only for old times’ sake but for the work it represented and once displayed with pride was done with the best of the best efforts.
Out of the nest in spite of the storm out there a bird will use the strength of his own wings.An empty nest means it has done its job.
Have you ever awaken to a persistent phone call ? Then you reached for your phone in half opened eyes only to hear a ‘pitch black’ vacuum of nothing?
That is one kind of an annoying silence because it disturbed you and you didn’t get anything in return.
For all you know the other party wanted to just test your alertness. Or was a wrong number call and decided to drop it when he/she realized it wasn’t you he wanted. Anyway, you can always call back and with adeptness to return the favor of nothingness.
Silence is also when people do not respond to your queries and totally ignore you. As If you do not exist at all.
Or totally chaotic noises and then suddenly no one is talking or if ever they are talking it seem to just be a recycling of everything that has been said. Though now grounded every last byte for further analysis or even meta analysis. Does this remind you of the ruckus that raised the roof on Kim Hyun Joong and the other party?
Silence is said to be deafening- negative decibels of sounds of different kinds. It is a figure of speech.But it drives home the point. We cannot tolerate silence for a long time.
Humans want to be in the know and have learned to distinguish between sounds. The human ears and other organs are fed with stimuli from its environment. We are very good in environmental sensing particularly what affects persons of interest. Or of persons we are interested in.
WE are interested in Kim Hyun Joong’s MS enlistment.We are interested in his continuing saga with his personal life and issues. We are interested in his career if there will be twists and turns post-MS. The WE includes not only the fans but also the anti-fans,the Press, the entertainment world and all the other associated interested parties.He isn’t popular for nothing.
The silence on the whatabouts of KHJ is driving some people crazy. Or most. Although it was what some of his supporters are saying -not to use media as conduit of discussion of personal affairs. So it must not have fallen on deaf ears.
Is no news good news? Hopefully it does. Will you be happy to know that the silence mean he has already entered MS? Or that he has reconciled with you know who? I have to bite my lips lest I type ‘heaven forbid’.
In the meantime enjoy the silence, smell the roses and hear the chirping of the birds.

My love is leaving
I couldn’t even say goodbye
The rains came but didn’t
wash my tears away.
My love wouldn’t look back
If he look back
he would see me here
drowning in my sorrows
pains etched in my heart.
My love is leaving
to a faraway land
even crickets couldn’t chirp
only blades of grass are waving.
He told me not to be sad
he’s coming back
wait through the seasons coming
and going, the moon giving its wink.
Though my love is leaving
memories of moments
I know will linger to last
till he find his way back.

Nobody wants to be left behind in making the announcement regarding Kim Hyun Joong’s enlistment for MS end of March this year.
It must have been a race who could put out the first news. The others must have been just contented to be the echo of the others.
The articles were trying to milk the news dry and just for “good measure” added the case which had been already resolved last year. Why still continuously rub it in ad nauseam? Have they not humiliated him enough?
The news gets to be additionally coloured and flavoured with his current “personal issues” as if people will not read without mentioning them.
Now the shift of attention is on who leaked the information to the press when HJ said he wants to enter the MS quietly and his fans respected his wishes.
Who is the mystery info leaker? What is his/her purpose? The plot thickens.
Anyway,one thing is certain. Kim Hyun Joong makes the news.
Sincere and Touching THANK YOU!!!

South Korean singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong confirmed that he will enlist in the mandatory military service on March 31, local media reported Thursday.
Kim, 28, will reportedly receive his weekslong training at the 9th Army Battalion in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province, at the end of the month, before going on active military duty.
“Kim planned to enlist in the Army within this year. He appears to have made up his mind after winding up his schedule,” a news outlet quoted a source as saying.
Kim’s label KeyEast Entertainment, however, stated that nothing has been confirmed and Kim is mulling whether to delay the enlistment.
“It is true that Kim was called up for the duty,” said an official from the agency. “But he is considering postponing his enlistment due to his personal circumstances.”
The idol-turned-actor’s personal circumstances could mean his recent scandal surrounding his relationship with his ex-girlfriend.
His former girlfriend, surnamed Choi, filed a complaint against Kim in August 2014, accusing him of beating her multiple times while they were romantically involved.
Kim, who initially denied the allegations, apologized to Choi in September, which led Choi to drop the charges. But the court ordered Kim to pay a fine of 5 million won ($4,600) in January.
Kim took a hit again in February after Choi revealed that she was 11 weeks pregnant with his baby.
“Kim does not even want to make public his decision on joining the military service. He wants to keep a low profile,” the official added.
Kim was meant to be conscripted on Oct. 7 last year, but put off enlisting in the Army, citing the hectic schedule for his world tour concert “Fantasy.”
Several other pop stars are also waiting to join the military service at the end of this month.
Super Junior members Shindong and Sungmin, who are both 29 years old, will enlist in the mandatory military service on March 24 and 31, respectively, their label SM Entertainment confirmed.
JYJ member Jaejoong will follow suit by beginning his military duty on March 31 after wrapping up his fan-meeting schedule and filming for the KBS drama “Spy,” in which he plays the male lead.
In South Korea, which remains technically at war with the North, all able-bodied men aged between 18 and 35 are required to serve for 21 months in the military to deter threats from North Korea.
And this is how news articles should be written ………..
Embattled Korean star Kim Hyun Joong may be joining the Korean army soon after receiving his draft order.
“Yes he received a draft notice for March 31. But he is thinking of whether to enlist on that day or apply for a postponement,” his agency, KeyEast Entertainment, said.
They added there are still issues that need clearing up concerning the draft order. The agency clarified, however, that Kim will enter the military without fanfare whether he enlists on March 31 or at a later date.
If he enlists on March 31, Kim will join JYJ’s Jaejoong, Super Junior’s Sungmin and actor Choi Jin Hyuk, who will all do so on the same day.
Kim is currently embroiled in controversy with his former girlfriend, identified as Choi, who recently announced her pregnancy.
A magazine quoted a source as saying that both families have already discussed marriage, which was denied by Kim’s camp.
KeyEast maintained that Kim and the woman broke up last December and she informed the singer about her pregnancy early January.
“Kim Hyun Joong would assume the responsibility if the pregnancy is confirmed,” the agency said.
Depsite receiving a military draft notice, Kim Hyun Joong is currently deciding on what to do.
Kim Hyun Joong′s agency, KeyEast, told Newsen, “We received a draft notice for March 31.”
“However, we′re currently contemplating whether to enlist on that day or request postponement.”
Kim Hyun Joong is currently in a complicated situation with his private life regarding his pregnant girlfriend. He received a military draft notice in the midst of issues involving the delivery and raising of the child.
“There are many things to take care of, so we′re careful in saying when he will enlist,” said the rep. “Whether he enlists on that day or postpones for later, he plans on going quietly.”
Meanwhile, Kim Hyun Joong is currently quietly staying at home.

A memory of the last concert at Makuhari… HJ always knew the fans wanted to take videos and pics, but were unable to because of security. So he told everyone they could record using their handphones for this song, a very special song, 나 살아있는 건. A song that told of his reason for living – his fans. A memory for his fans to keep in the two years he would be away in the military. One of my enduring memories of this concert is that of the fans, all silent, recording that moment…

My Exact word for HJ.. ” Never ever fade away from my mind.. Because your ANGEL EYES.. Shinning in my life..”

Ms Deanna Dsc thank you..
Physical things register on a scale. When we travel we want to keep within our limit as much as possible dreading to be told we have ‘excess baggage’. But it is easier to throw away our excess baggage or to even pay for it.
Our emotions carry weights as well but that we can’t measure but only feel that burden. We say ‘I have a heavy heart’ or ‘my shoulder feel as if am carrying the world’. Our emotions are harder to handle. No amount of sleep nor alcohol can fade them away. Perhaps just momentarily forget or blur them in our consciousness.
Many times it is not so much as having caused someone pain, but worse is having to live with guilt and regrets, and the ‘what if I had not done that ‘ litany. The feeling of disappointment with one’s self is simply overwhelming. To think what a person has gone through to be where one is now and saw it crumble is devastating. It is the battle of one’s inner demons.
A solo fight.
The battle is about all the things that went wrong. It is the difficulty of forgiving oneself. It is the burden no one can know but the person affected. It is that inward blaming.
It is easy to say to the person to forget what has happened when reminders are aplenty. There is a need to perhaps change places so that a new perspective may be gained from all that has happened. But the afflicted person needs a person to hear his view of things who isn’t judgemental, to figuratively hold his hands towards the path of healing.
Maybe one needs to write down his thoughts though they need to be processed. Did he hold himself to a certain standard or expectations? If he felt remorse that is good to correct what needs to be corrected. To not let that guilt develop into shaming and self-loathing. Worse is self-destruction.
From the way things seem to be even from afar KIm Hyun Joong is wounded. He needs to heal from all that beating. From all those thorns that tore through his heart. From all the accusations he received and quietly kept within.
He has courage to own his mistake and responsibilities. I salute him for turning to his parents for help and for his parents to show they are there for him. Always.
Though we cannot know nor feel his exact pains we all have been there one time or the other. It is part of our journey through life. We are after all human with all our imperfections. We have our weaknesses and strengths. We used different strategies to balance things up.
Time is a a good healer. So is love He need space to clear his thoughts. Someone to tell him he is a good person and for him to believe it. To love himself again.
He will have scars. It is good to have scars for it means the wound is healed. A person’s medal for his battles -battling his inner demons. Emerging the victor, he knows only he can pick himself up as he has done before.

Reposting AprilStarr’s Comments here ….
There’s a name I came across to refer to this affliction on invasion of privacy : pathological intrusiveness.
The problem is someone is feeding info to the press.You know who that is. If she gets stressed as claimed, whose fault is that ?
If there is one putting all the blame on HJ at this point, he/she forgets one thing or just a case of selective amnesia. It takes two to tango. And the two are not children either. Two consenting adults.
Let their private lives remain private.
Btw, it’s getting tiring that there are people still going back and forth to his assault case which already went through two layers of SK Judicial system-the police and prosecution. He was fined for the one case he admitted bodily harm and apologized.
Is this system a laughing matter then to those who refuse to lay the case to rest?
Stop the madness of the court of biased public opinion. It is just spinning in a vicious cycle.

- Words on the screen at Makuhari on 20th February 2015 towards the end of the concert. Translated from the Chinese translation provided by HyunJoongChina.
Having been fortunate enough to be able to add these extra performances at Makuhari, the time to be with everyone was lengthened just that little. I’ve debuted 10 years, and in that time, this person Kim Hyun Joong has received so much love. Have I repaid that love? Whether there is any little thing I would be able to do for everyone is something I’m always thinking about. When one is unable to see into the future, one is always grasping at a little hope. It is in the midst of this hope that I, with the trust you have placed in me, have been able to continue singing till now.
In the coming 2 years, I want to look back again at the person that is Kim Hyun Joong, and in the next 10,20 years, will work hard to repay everyone. I will work hard in order to grow and mature further , and let everyone listen to even better music. My heartfelt thanks to all who have continued to stay by my side and given me your love. We are like a family in our mutual trust, if we have support coming from within our innermost being, we will not be lonely.
Have always been grateful. In the future, I shall not forget either. Please stay healthy everybody. I love you. Good bye and see you again.
– Kim Hyun Joong
