【EN TRNS :: 김현중 KIM HYUN JOONG 28th MESSAGE】
Finally tomorrow my comeback happens.
It hasn't hit me yet. I don't feel any yet. As always it rains to greet my comeback.
Does it help... since Your Story is an emotional song??????
At least it helps the heat subside, so still feels good.
I didn't write 'thanks to' on this album. Actually I have many people to be thankful for,
If I would miss one of them, the person could be disappointed. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Just keep it as an insurance (*just in case). --
I am thinking I will try many things for 5 weeks promotion period.
'Your Story', 'Unbreakable' and other songs as well ^^
You must be surprised as soon as seeing my 'Gentle Man' performance... -- Truly, I like it myself. ㅋㅋ too much self-praise?
(That's what I am feeling no matter how you agree with me) Or not at all... Besides don't you know I prepared 'Like Before' choreography???? It's just me who know that. ㅋㅋㅋ
You must be curious..ㅋㅋ Then join the concert even if no one knows when it would happen.
ㅋㄷㅋㄷ What (am I doing) Seems I am writing this message to tease you... anyway
This year is more than half over and only 5 months left.
How quickly flies?????????? Everyday just flies at superspeed. There are so many things I want to do while I have only one body during time flies. Still I will do what I want through my life, so don't worry.
This is what I feel, positive people seem to be happy. Let's say 'good job', 'it's okay' rather than blame others and envy other people's happiness.
Or you will suffer from heartache. ㅋㅋ no matter what happens~~ well, that's what I felt ^^
'Your Story' is.... its MV is.... --;;; you must be shocked...
since it's too adult ....................................................................
You can leave me.......................................................ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
I will try to make up for that with 'Gentle Man' if you are upset with ('Your Story') MV--;;; huh...ㅋㅋ
Anyway I am going to write down 'thanks to'
I am very thankful to my fans who always stand by me.
I do not know when it would be, someday we would not be able to meet any longer but let's keep missing each other and not forget the memories. ^^
I keep piling up neatly all the pleasant memories in my heart in order to open and see whenever I miss you.
Let's live happily~~~ 'Your Story' is the song just for you ^^ fighting
If you have tissue... when you see 'Your Story' MV... bring it. You will need it. Bite your tongue to keep your tears back when you watch it.
Thank you as always,, wrapping up ROUND3 album work.... from 28 year old Kim Hyun Joong

Kim Hyun Joong, who recently made a Korean comeback after 2 years, opened up about his growth as an artist in an interview with Focus Newspaper.
Kim Hyun Joong shared, "I am 28 years old now, so I probably shouldn't be called an idol anymore. I want to show my maturity whether it's through my outgoing personality or music... I learned how to relax on stage. This album also contains different genres of music."
"My hoobaes don't have to follow in my footsteps. I want to do things that I want to try right now. I took on powerful choreography for 'Unbreakable', and I wondered if I could still perform this dance 3 years later."
Concerning his transformation from a 'pretty boy' to a more charismatic image, the singer recalled, "During my 'Boys Over Flowers' days, I wanted to show a manly image. But I leaned more towards a young, pretty boy image. But now I really became a 'man'."
When asked about his secret to longevity as an artist, Kim Hyun Joong answered, "I really don't know. I just kept doing the things I wanted to do, and I came to this day somehow... Whenever I perform at a concert, I always try to get closer with the audience and I normally try to treat my fans well. I am well aware that I was able to come this far because of my fans. I want to give my fans a 'free fan meeting' when I hit my 10th anniversary."

[News] Kim Hyun Joong reveals he doesn't worry too much about rumors + talks about being drunk when doing the 'cutie player'
Kim Hyun Joong has been in the business for a while and revealed his sense of responsibility as a celebrity in the public eye.
In an interview with @star1, Kim Hyun Joong talked about how he deals with rumors and shared, "I don't think I had any incidents that I needed to explain... Even if there is a rumor, I don't worry about it much. I know my fans believe in me."
"But as much as I have a career in the public eye and receive a lot of love and support, I always try to be careful and act with responsibility."
Kim Hyun Joong also revealed the behind-the-scenes story about his drunken cutie player and shared, "I said that I did it after I drank alcohol. I couldn't say that this was done while I was sober... This video was first unveiled during my fan meeting. Because it was my first fan meeting in Seoul in a long time, I wanted to show my fans something memorable so after much thought, I decided to take on the cutie player."
"My fans know that I'm not good with those kind of things and that I don't usually do it. That is why I drank beer and filmed the video with the help of my friends. I think my fans' response was even better because they know that they might not see this kind of rare video ever again."
