The KHJ versus CHM has turned into a family feud and not merely litigation between two adults, two individuals of major age but with the involvement of family members of both sides. It is still a reflection that in spite of being ultra modern and high technology based South Korea is now,it is still a society of families.
The family being being now at the forefront is a good illustration that there exists a cultural lag, in that somehow not all of society change. A part of it lags behind mostly its sacred values. It is its most enduring legacy.
The significance of the family is highlighted as in agricultural societies or even at the tribal level whenever a member is threatened or is endangered. The family acts as the fort guarding its members, resources, territories and honor. Among the elites, this behaviour is standard. The Kim Family is no different. They close ranks, put up defences, they act and speak in behalf of their beleaguered member. Perhaps this is what those critics of the active parental involvement do not understand.
The Choi family may have spoken only through their lawyer; but as bits and pieces of evidence crop up their active involvement, if proven may soon be critical to the cases.
The family feud may still intensify not so much about the monetary consideration but more about the restoration of a dignity and the custody of a child, a potential member of the family.

Attorney Lee already said,this case(s) will take some time to resolve. There are the inevitable postponements for various reasons. More changes in the date of the hearing cropped up. From February it has now been moved to March. The reason: change in the Judiciary personnel. So it means the new people are going to make their assessment of the cases. On the other hand, more expenses are incurred maintaining the legal teams; HJ has 20 working on his cases. They must have factored in those expenses to the compensation package being asked for in the cases.
Monetary expenses are one thing,but the stressful anticipation of the verdict is another. When one’s life and career is on hold it is difficult to measure the dire consequences. In fact,no compensation can ever be enough to restore dignity and everything else one worked for for a long time. It is not only HJ but his entire family Is affected. The other family? Well …I don’t want to say they brought it upon themselves. Did they not know,it is not an easy thing to enter into litigation that many people resort to settling their disputes outside the courts? But then filing cases are used by many people to threaten and harass others. The thing is, there is a limit to harassment.
Celebrities are vulnerable to harassment, the other side of the coin of fame and fortune. Scandals sometimes make or break them. They are human like all others with frailties but magnified thousand fold making them fodder for tabloid press and for those waiting to pounce on them. Celebrities they say need to be controversial to be noticed, but then it depends on how far the controversy goes and if it can be managed. Hyun Joong do not need to be noticed that way. And so he must and he did fight back!
We now wait for the wheels of justice to turn though looking temporarily stalled in its slowness. Hopefully it is not because they have been pushed to the back of the burner as some are beginning to suspect. Let the prediction be for a fair and judicious settlement

We have seen Kim Hyun Joong go through an evolution of images. From the rebellious, tough guy who exchanged his comfortable home and recognized talent at schoolwork for music, the happy -go- lucky guy who can sleep anywhere,anytime, maturing into a gentle Jihoo. He was also the 4D guy,darling of variety shows, the favorite athlete of the soccer field and icon of celebrity clothes and makeup. His latest image was that of the rough and manly persona of Inspiring Generation. Those images were developed by his talent agencies through which he was promoted and became known as a Kpop idol. They became second skin to him much of what was understood as part and parcel of background and life experiences.
His solo concert images is another story, they were his creation as they projected his own aspirations and represented where he is at the moment. He showed his capabilities through different musical genres, freed to experiment combinations to deliver the ambiance that he wanted, showed how he released himself from the past though not necessarily completely rejecting them as he tried performing with a Live band. His image was that of being natural, touchable and even vulnerable to his emotions.
Every concert is a collective enterprise between him and the fans, between him and the people who worked with him to make the concert an experience to remember for a long time. Every concert bore his unmistakable signature. He closes the gap between him and the fans- going down from the stage to the audience rows, fan participation in the programs, handshakes and seeing them leave by the door as a gracious host- all fan services of course. But he does it with all humble appreciation and sincerity.
Here at the concert he, as well as the fans are all up close compared to the segmented and edited dramas where he waits for the ratings to see how he has done his work. The high of a performer from the audience reception of his number,or the whole set of it judging from the thunderous applause, to the ear splitting screams of his name can be summarised by the phrase “you don’t know how you made me so happy” right then and there. You don’t have to hear him say it, his face and body language say them all.
Dear readers … Hyunnies Pexers went hiatus the last few weeks…. And now we’re back. We apologize for not informing you all of our status. Let’s all welcome 2016 with new hope and a better year for our Only One – KHJ. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERONE!!!
New Year’s Resolution(s)

Are we still doing it? Or is it already outdated? Are we still coming up with a wish list as pointed out by somebody but not how we will do it ?
Some people I know have given up on making a list. After all the list is more honoured by breaking them than actualizing them. Nothing wrong if we do modify the list along the way. Nothing has been set in stone anyway.
Some are wondering what will be in HJ’s list assuming he has drawn or drawing up one. Even if his civilian life seems to be on hold while being a soldier, everyone knows his grind with his cases continues. 2016 has already offered him a different scenario- with a DNA declared biological relationship with a three month old son and all the responsibilities that go with it. What about his lawsuit against an ex girlfriend? How will it prosper?
2016 is just 12 months that can easily slide by and yet so many things can happen. Will it result to a new and improved Hyun Joong? Let’s not forget, 2017 is not so far away by the second month of the new year. Yet that gives him lead time to think of what his future holds. It should be another exciting turn in his life which seems to come by every five years since he entered show biz. For those who need to remember 2005 -2010 was being in a boyband and side activities. From 2010 to 2015 being solo performer. What will be it for the next five years?
As we know, HJ is one that does not merely wish but he does make them happen in the ways he knows how with or without scandal and even with the interregnum military service period. His mind is an ever fertile ground for ideas ready for execution.
As I’m writing this piece with just 30 minutes or so before 2016 rolls in amidst the sound of firecrackers welcoming the New Year, I wish him all the best …because his best is yet to come.
I also wish everyone visiting this site a safe and prosperous New Year and to continue holding HJ ‘s hand in his quest for an enlightened and just milieu. He will not fail.
Heard this from someone… January was named after the Greek god Janus meaning two faced. One to look back to learn our lessons, the other to look forward to the future and improve.

Will this be a father’s shout of joy? It could be. Particularly in a Patriarchal society like South Korea, the eldest son fulfills filial duties. And remember the State has another soldier in the making. Though relationships built on a genetic test and contested allegations are not exactly desirable. But it happens. Worst is many wish that son is not his. Many thinks HJ should have the chance for his life to find its path as he see fit and move on.
He has said since the case started he isn’t shirking from his fatherly duties and obligations if that baby is proven his. His lawyer repeats the same pronouncement even as the other side makes the accusation KHJ is in denial of his paternity.
The suspense is building up on the result of KHJ’s second time to take the DNA test and the baby ‘s first time. Some people suggested that the woman claiming to be the mother should also take the test to put to rest the ugly rumours.
It won’t be long now. If it takes a week expect to hear the good or bad news by Dec 21. If it is two weeks, look forward to Dec 28. But Dec 28 is the feast day of the Innocents ( Catholic tradition)-the babies slaughtered or sacrificed by a threatened Herod. What do you think of this coincidence
