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.

    I enjoyed this article, AprilStarr, and I always appreciate the analogies you use in your writing ….. “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”.

    To me, Hyun Joong’s strength and the will that drives him to succeed is impressive. He is indeed the beautiful bird whose mighty wings carried him out of the nest and into the wind to soar above the rest. He gives 110% to whatever challenge he faces. My only hope is that his spirit has not been broken and that he realizes the value of his life, the value of his work, the effect he has on people for just being himself, and above all that he knows how much people do love him and are supporting him. I hope he feels that energy. To bear the life changing events that are taking place in his life, being taken out of the limelight into military service at such a time of turmoil and uncertainty, will most certainly require some regrouping and reorganization of thought, especially with a child coming into the picture unexpectedly. That is a lot to handle for anyone. He seems to love children so, always giving them his special attention and a sweet smile. I’m sure he had pictured a much different way of bringing his own into the world, with a mother that he could live a peaceful life with. My only wish for him is that he finds the inner peace and happiness he deserves and that he ignores any bad energy that some people are trying to send his way. I also hope that people will end their hateful ramblings toward him and show compassion for all that he has given of himself. Along with the privilege it has afforded him, his life has not been a normal one. He has lived in a bubble and has been owned by the entertainment industry. He needs to feel loved and free to fly.

    I remember when HJ renewed his contract with KE in 2012: their actions had increased. Now they get rid of HJ removing all traces from him in their society. It is a shame!
    But it seems that this Nobody was employed at KE when HJ met her. It must be the daughter or girlfriend of a spawning of this company. This is why she has power and HJ has no one to support him in this rotten agency. Fighting my Hyun Joong, your family, your friends and your fans will be forever with you, no matter what!!

    Thank you so much for this write up. If it’s true that means it’s time for a new chapter of his life. However i felt strange about KE since August last year. Look at the bright side he needs an agency that is more professional in protecting its artist. No wonder why HJ was humiliated by medias without any problems.

    I’m sure he will do well. let him take his time.

  4. Wow! How true! It saddens me to see such bad treatment of a star who brought them such huge revenue! In the end, he’s not even given due credit. But Hyun Joong has always been strong & moved ahead no matter what is thrown at him! There WILL be someone who WILL take him, if not – he’s talented enough to work on his own! Either ways, I wish him good luck in all his endeavors! Fighting!

  5. Like a Bird either Jumping out, or pushed out of the nest… I see KHJ being like the phoenix… Rising from the Fire… he’ll be back and do other wonderful things, wiser personally and professionally. One thing I’ve noticed over the last 10 + years is that KHJ Never says anything bad about any of the companies or people he’s worked with, he just moves on and looks ahead, not back. So that’s what I’m hoping he can do this time. The Film is unique, and won’t be forgotten. Most of us have it in some form on our computers, so it’s going to be put out there.
