[NEWS] Kim Hyun Joong on expectations for “Lucky Guy”, going solo, and SNSD



Source & Images : KoreaTimes via Naver
English Translation: Allkpop






SS501‘s Kim Hyun Joong is making a comeback with his second solo mini-album, ‘Lucky Guy‘. For this latest work, he experimented with a variety of genres, from the punk-rock feel of “Lucky Guy” to the sweet ballad, “I’m Your Man“.

The star recently sat down for an interview with the Korea Times, where he revealed his thoughts on ‘Lucky Guy’, his solo promotions, and the overabundance of idols in the industry.

Check it out below!



▲Do you have any particular expectations for this album?

Kim Hyun Joong: “I just hope a lot of people listen and enjoy it. I’m interested in hearing what the public has to say about it, more than my actual fans. The sales for ‘Break Down‘ weren’t bad, but I wasn’t satisfied, which is why I focused a bit more on the music this time.”

▲You are only promoting your album for three short weeks. Is that enough time?

Kim Hyun Joong: “I wish I could promote it a while longer, but I have a performance that was scheduled prior and wanted to release the album before then. It’s too bad, but I’ll work hard during the time I have.”

▲Which song is your favorite?

Kim Hyun Joong: “Lucky Guy”. Why? Because it’s the title song (laughs). I want to have a good time performing this song on stage, because I couldn’t when I was performing “Break Down”.

▲Is it lonely performing as a soloist after being in a multi-member group?

Kim Hyun Joong: “Not at all. I want to focus on making a phenomenal album, and when it’s all said and done, I’ll put on a free concert for my fans.”

▲What do you mean, when it’s all said and done?

Kim Hyun Joong: “The career of a dance artist is short-lived. It’s not realistic for me to be in my mid-thirties and dance to 20 songs in a row on stage. I want to hold a final concert for my fans, while I’m still in my prime.”

▲Rain has just enlisted in the military, meaning that there is now a void in the ‘male solo-artist’ domain. Are you looking to become the next Rain?

Kim Hyun Joong: “Rain has accomplished so much during his career. It’s a little different for me though, because I debuted with a group. Although it may not be me, there will be a solo artist who will surpass Rain’s achievements.”

▲Don’t you think that K-Pop these days focuses too much on the music of idol stars?

Kim Hyun Joong: “I too was an idol star, but I don’t really have any particular thoughts about that. The music the idols are performing now might just be the music pushed by their agency. The stubborn ones will probably break out and produce a solo album to do the kind of music that’s right for them.”

▲Have any junior idols caught your attention?

Kim Hyun Joong: “Not sure, I didn’t really watch any music programs, except when I was promoting “Break Down”. I’m keeping a close eye on SNSD though, because I know they are making a comeback at a date similar to my own.”

▲Aren’t you a little intimidated to go head-to-head with the SNSD girls?

Kim Hyun Joong: “No, not really. I’m not trying to win against SNSD, I just think that the industry will be more lively with their comeback. There will be people who will listen to my music, despite SNSD releasing a new album.”





▲Any plans to go back into acting?

Kim Hyun Joong: “I think I could maybe in June of next year. Nothing specific has been decided yet, but looking at my schedule, I think that would be best. I played two gentle roles for the last two, so this time I want to play the rough, bad boy.”

▲What appeals more to you, acting or singing?

Kim Hyun Joong: “Both have their own appeals. With my music, I can show you what I’m about, but when you act, you live the life of another person. When I sing, I want to act, and when I act, I want to sing (laughs). It’s just hard to do both, is all. With singing, though, you get rated once a week on music programs so it definitely keeps you grounded.”

▲What are your plans for this album?

Kim Hyun Joong: “The media and the public shocked me by asking if I was really releasing another album already. I thought maybe I rushed myself, but it’s something I put a lot of effort into and I want to work hard until early next year. I thank my fans for always keeping up with me, and if you have $0.70 to spare, how about you download my new single, haha.”

인용한 소스(Source quoted): 김현중 다음 검색

(1)After 30 years old, will stop being a dance singer, and will turn to band singer cum actor. He admits he's too impatient, because he wants to do all that he can as a dance singer while he still has the ability now, or it will be too late due to army. He also dislikes to become like a handicapped person if he rests for too long. He cannot stop doing things he love so much.


(2)He actually already thought of [LUCKY]'s concept and 3rd album's concept before [BREAKDOWN].


(3)On final/last day being a dance singer, he will open a free concert for fans all over the world at a huge venue in Korea, maybe like the Olympic Stadium or Jamshil Stadium. to thank all his fans, every single one.

(4)His previous girlfriend was a non-celebrity. Wasn't together for long, and broke up before [BREAKDOWN] because was too busy. He has no wish to date for now.

(5)When he prepares for his album, it was a complete full month without night sleep

(6)★Korea 60%, Overseas 40%; in Korea, Actor and Singer 5:5.

(7)The werewolf's howl at 「Lucky Guy」 02:21 is by Hyun Joong himself. ^^

(8)「U」 was the final recorded song. It was recorded after his Aug 2011 Asia Tour. His condition at that time wasn't good, it was toughest song recorded.

(9)It does not matter to him whether a full album/mini-album. It is meaningless (I think so too). It's the quality that matters. and he wants to keep releasing albums in mini- or single manner. Just like format "KHJ's 1st album", "KHJ's 2nd album", "KHJ's 3rd album", etc.

(10)Fans worry about him going to Sendai for Japan Nationwide Tour. his reply was that it is a place where people live too. If they are alright, he will be too. The stands were decided before the March 2011 earthquake. and he wants to keep to promise.

(11)Chorus for song 「웃어요(Smile)」 was originally to be done by JYJ Junsu and Jaejoong, but they were releasing album at same time, recording time wasn't right so could not.


(12)He says wants to get married at earliest 35 years old.

(13)He created the Uzooshin character because he likes outer space of course, and it would be so cool to see a thousand alien faces in a pitch dark venue, under one roof (concert/event venue), staring at him.


『Most Importantly』
(14)★It's almost impossible to release another SS501 album due to the group name's copyright by DSP Entertainment. But it is possible for a unite joint stage, maybe at big events like year-end ceremonies, etc. Friendship has never affected. It is not wise to spread rumors around like their album is already recording and will be released when-when-when; it will be more wise to just speak the truth because then, fans won't be waiting aimlessly, though it may be more hurt.

++Why is it not possible?++
-001- 4 agencies (Keyeast, B2M Entertainment, CNr Media, S+ Entertainment) have to join hands with DSP Entertainment Co. to produce an album. Such agreement of contract and process taken may take up to many years, and by the time they could jolly well be already old...

-002- Even if they were to release a group album now, it's not likely they can sell 100K+ or more, so be more realistic, there isn't so much of a necessity to produce an album to sell, too. This is not added by H.J of his own accord, this is speaking matter-of-factly on behalf of artiste agencies because producing an album is mainly to achieve sales, as is always understood.

[NEWS] Kim Hyun Joong: ‘I Am More Deeply Attached to My Work Than Before’





Source: http://english.kbs.co.kr/Entertain/EntertainmentNews/view.html?No=7941


Kim Hyun Joong, who released his second mini album, said, “I want to perform music that has a reversal.”

Singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong cast off his tough and charismatic image and made a comeback with an image of a mischievous gambler. Kim Hyun Joong released his second mini album entitled “Lucky” on October 11, and it was different from his first solo album entitled “Break Down” by utilizing a funky band sound.





Kim Hyun Joong gave an interview at Coex Intercontinental Hotel on October 10, and he said, “I have wanted to present music that has a reversal. Many people seemed to expect that I would release music that would be similar to my previous album ‘Break Down,’ and I think that I successfully provided a reversal in light of that. People will evaluate my album, but I personally want to give 100 points to my album as I had put my utmost efforts into create this album.” He revealed that he was satisfied with his album. He continued, “I think that I have to play music that my fans and ordinary people can enjoy. ‘Break Down’ was not a kind of music that people will pay to download the songs, but I thought that people might be able to enjoy the new album while watching and listening to the songs. This time, I focused on music that everybody can pleasantly sing along to.” The album “Lucky” contains a total of five songs including funky rock music with the up tempo track “Lucky Guy,” which is based on the sound of his band, a funky rock-and-roll track entitled “Do You Like That?” the ballad song entitled “I Am Your Man,” and a song with lovely lyrics entitled “U.” Kim Hyun Joong is highly interested in band music, and he came up with the idea of creating “band music that can be listened to while dancing.” Members of the rock band “Day Break” and the funk soul band “Common Ground” participated in playing the music.








 Kim had presented the image of a tough man with his previous album “Break Down,” but this time, he had to create the image of a “preppy guy” who is stylish and mischievous, so he tried to lose weight and successfully lost five kilograms by exercising. Kim Hyun Joong emphasized his new image by saying, “I wanted to create popular and stylish music. And when I had been agonizing over how to present a freewheeling image, I happened to watch the movie ‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ and I thought ‘This is it’ because it looked so cool to me. I tried to come up with various exciting elements.” He also used the idea of telling the story of a gambler inspired from the movie ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ for his music video, which will be soon released, and there will be another reversal that he used on purpose considering the censorship criteria. The characters of the music video will play games in the casino, but the game is actually a board game named Blue Marble. Kim explained, “We filmed the board of the Blue Marble game and the chips separately considering the censorship criteria.” He laughed.

Kim will hold activities with the new album in Korea for only three weeks, and then he will begin a concert tour in Japan. The concert tour will begin from November 9 in Osaka, and he will also hold a concert in the cities of Japan including Tokyo, Nagoya, Sendai, and Yokohama with a total of 30,000 audience members. Kim Hyun Joong said, “I feel sad that I have to finish activities in Korea after such a short schedule as the schedule for my concert tour in Japan had already been organized. But at the same time, I think that it will be a good opportunity for me because Girls Generation will also begin activities during the same period as me. I have to perform music when people are highly interested in music (laugh).”






Kim's schedule has been fully booked. He will release his digital single in December and his third album next year in January. In addition, he is also planning to hold a world concert tour. He explained the reason why he released his second album after only four months since he had released his first solo album in June. It was because he wanted to have many good songs before he will hold the world concert tour. He will also make a comeback as an actor next year at around June after he finishes his world concert tour. He revealed his desire for acting by saying, “I have not chosen any work to appear in yet, but I will definitely appear in some work.” Kim added, “I think that I cannot hold activities both as a singer and an actor at the same time. It will be very tough. Acting is also a very hard task, but it is still very difficult for me as a singer because I have to always stay in tension due to the fact that a singer is constantly evaluated by people. And I think that time flies while I am holding activities as a singer. When I was busy with activities as a singer, I realized that I want to act again. People can remember acting for a relatively long time; they tend to easily forget about music. But I do not want to appear in a movie, as a movie requires detailed acting. I want to develop my acting ability more while appearing in a drama. I want to take time before I will appear in a movie even though the character whom I will play will be a trivial role.”



 




 Kim revealed his plan to release another album at around the end of next year and to hold a concert. Asked whether he feels any difficulties due to his tight schedule and plans, he answered, “I always say that I want to take a break. But I found out that I could not actually take a break even though I have time. One week of break seems to be the maximum period for me. I took a break for one month before I moved to a different agency last year, and I became totally dejected at that time. I felt pressure and I wanted to do something at that time.” He reportedly already made plans for his next two years, and he personally revealed that he had already thought about the concept for his next album that will be released next year in January from the moment when he debuted. In addition, he does not want to have a relationship because he has been so busy with his work. He seldom watches TV. He said, “There are only two programs that I watch -- 'The Expert of Life' and 'VJ Special Forces' -- and I like those programs very much. I have realized that there are many mysterious people in the world and I want to focus on only one thing to become an expert like those people.”







Kim has continued to hold activities since his debut as a member of the idol group SS501 in 2005, and asked what has changed, he answered, "I was young when I debuted, and I was just happy about becoming an entertainer. But now I have become more attached to my job than before. I always think that I have to be fully prepared for my performances. In addition, I learned how to form relationships with other people. I should not be satisfied with my present position because it will hinder my own development. I have come to feel enthusiasm when thinking about my work." Asked about the possibility of holding activities as the group SS510, he revealed that it would be difficult considering the fact that the members belong to different agencies now. He said, "I might have told good words for my fans, but I have to tell the truth. But we might be able to perform together as part of a joint performance or at an awards ceremony." His final goal as a singer is reportedly holding a free concert at Olympic Stadium with his fans from all around the world and announcing his retirement. Kim said, "I want to finish my activities as a dance musician there. I do not want to show my dance performances until I reach my thirties. I want to study more about music and perform different genres of music, such as band music, that I have always wanted to perform."


[NEWS] Kim Hyun Joong talks about SS501 getting back together?

English Translation: KpopFever.com





Former SS501 member, current actor and singer Kim Hyun Joong talked about the possibilities of SS501 getting back together.

Kim Hyun Joong stated at a recent meeting with reporters, “Honestly, there are members I still keep in touch with and others I don’t. 5 of us never really all got together in one occasion. When the members get together we talk about being true to what we are doing now”.

Kim Hyun Joong also added, “What the fans want would be when the album would be released but it would be disappointing to promise something and to not be able to come through. The name SS501 belongs to a different company and for 4 companies to produce one album together is realistically not easy. Perhaps a collective stage might be possible but to release an album together seems tough in reality”.

The SS501 members have left DSP Media and other than Kyu Jong and Young Saeng signing with the same company, they all have gone their separate ways with a different management company. The team’s name SS501 still belongs to DSP Media currently.

Kim Hyun Joong was also honest in admitting, “I want to be judged to be the best out the 5 members of SS501 as a solo”.

Kim Hyun Joong has released the second solo mini album ‘Lucky’ on October 11th and will start promotion with the title song ‘Lucky guy’. A Japanese tour is scheduled involving multiple cities including, Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and the Asian Tour for next year is in planning.

[NEWS] Kim Hyun-joong, “Bae Yong-joon is a reliable brother”


Source: http://news.nate.com/view/20111012n07349?mid=e0101
English Translation: HanCinema




Singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong revealed his close friendship with senior actor Bae Yong-joon.

In a recent interview with ENews, Kim Hyun-joong revealed that he calls Bae Yong-joon, the major shareholder of their management Key East, 'brother' and that he is very reliable.

Kim Hyun-joong said, "Bae Yong-joon is a trustworthy brother who is dependable not only for business matters but also for personal ones".

"When I was making my album recently, he came to the recording studio and monitored for me. He gives me lots of advice as he is also interested in music. He's not as exact as Yang Hyeon-seok or Park Jin-young as he's not a singer, but when he points out there's something missing in a certain part, it's difficult but I try to figure out what 'that' is".

Of course, when he was asked what if Bae Yong-joon was featured on his album, he said, "I don't want that, but he were to take part in my album, I would like to request him to be on the cover of it".

Finally, Kim Hyun-joong said, "When it comes to work, he lets me do everything I want. Because of that I am more cautious about what I do. He makes people be more careful and precise".

Meanwhile, Kim Hyun-joong has released his second solo mini album "Lucky" in following last June. It is made up of five songs with strong beats and rock and roll instrumentals like the song "Do You Like That" and the title song "Lucky Guy". Having shown his masculine side on the first album, this time he's transformed into a chic and dandy guy.

[NEWS] Is Kim Hyun Joong's Comeback Too Soon?



Credit: soompi.com





Following the launch of his first solo mini-album album “Break Down” four months ago, Kim Hyun Joong returns this week with another mini-album “Lucky“. Although many people felt that his return is too soon, Kim Hyun Joong thinks that it has been long overdue. “Many people are saying how quickly that I’m coming out again, but I personally think that a long time has passed. There will be another single album in January.”

“The debut solo album was able to reflect the solo side of myself and this time I’m presenting my music to everyone. I have put in a lot of effort in the music, it suits everyone. I had wanted to show that I can perform on stage alone through “Break Down”, in my new songs, I hope everyone can pay more attention to my music.”

In the new album, Kim Hyun Joong participated widely in album production and worked closely with C-Luv who has produced “Rainism” for Rain and MBLAQ‘s debut album, along with Steven Lee who has been working on not only Kim Hyun Joong’s debut album but also fellow SS501 members, Heo Young Saeng and Kim Kyu Jong‘s debut albums as well. The album has attracted much attention due to the wide selection of musical styles, ranging from punk rock to American R&B through the five songs.

Kim Hyun Joong will be showing his maturing singing skills in “I Am Your Man“. He was also honest to add, “frankly, people do not harbor much curiosity in my music, that’s why I want to show more, wanting to sing songs that are appealing to everyone. I know people’s expectations are not so high, so I have selected music that are relatively simple.”

“The acoustic version of “I Am Your Man” gives a calm feeling, I have been receiving vocal training so there will be many changes, including my way of singing. Female fans may like the sound, my voice has indeed improved progressively.”

Title track “Lucky Guy” embodies rock band music that speaks of Kim Hyun Joong’s style, a genre that he loves. “In fact, I am very worried that the public could not accept such a song, and we had also invited a band and guitarist for live accompaniment. Although it is band music, I hope that we could present a song that we can dance to even without the presence of a band. The most exciting is club music, but since it no longer exists, I feel that band music would add more flavor.”

The title track “Lucky Guy” is Kim Hyun Joong’s favorite, recording for the song has also been very interesting. “In a part of the song, there is a howl, I have wanted to put a female’s voice initially, but it’s really hard to find that kind of sexy voice, so I used a wolf’s howl instead.”

Kim Hyun Joong said, the launch of this album complies with all of his requirements. It is not difficult to tell that he has put in a lot of effort from the pictures of the album cover. “I hope to be recognized in the things I want to do, not because of somebody’s demands.”




The album promotions will only last for three weeks due to various promotional engagements in Asia. Kim Hyun Joong too expressed regret, “three weeks is really short, unfortunately, but there are scheduled activities and to release the new album during this time although somewhat regretful, I will do my best. I hope to meet a lot of fans.”

“Actually I did not anticipate that the response for my comeback being too soon, that’s why sometimes I think I’m being impatient. Although the time was very short but I’d dedicated all efforts in completing the album, wanting to return sooner so that everyone will not forget about me. Next year, I should have something new to bring to you and I hope to have your continued support.”





“Lucky” has officially hit the record stores on October 11 and fans may look forward to the full music video on October 13. Kim Hyun Joong’s comeback stage is set for October 20 through Mnet‘s “M! Countdown“.

On October 10 at the COEX Intercontinental Hotel, Kim Hyun Joong held an interview for the release of his second mini-album. During the interview he was asked about his CF filming for a makeup brand with SNSD’s Seohyun. His story gained a lot of attention.

Kim Hyun Joong stated, “Although Seohyun and I are both shy of strangers, during the filming Seohyun was more extroverted. She approached me first asking, ‘Did you eat yet?’ and I answered, ‘Yes.’ I really didn’t have much to say afterwards, so we didn’t talk at all until the filming was over.”

After the CF filming he asked, “When is the new SNSD album going to be released?” and she replied, “It was delayed.”

Finally he said, “Have a good day.” That was the complete conversation that he had with Seohyun and after the story everyone at the interview laughed.

Kim Hyun Joong’s second mini-album will be released on October 11 and he will comeback on October 20 through Mnet’s “M Countdown.”

[NEWS] Kim Hyun Joong talked about JaeJoong & Junsu JYJ

Please do not remove, alter, or add to the credits.




Q: You suggested a duet to JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong.

Hyunjoong: That’s right. While drinking together we shared conversations such as—‘wouldn’t it be nice for people who are close with each other to have an album out.’ For things that I want to do, I want to do it all without regrets.

Q: What side of Kim Jaejoong did you like to suggest this?

Hyunjoong: It’s not that I liked a particular a side of him. (laugh) I think it will be fun if we do it. In truth, when we drink, we tell each other all kinds of stuff.

Q: Kim Jaejoong appeared in the drama Protect the Boss.

Hyunjoong: Jaejoong recently appeared in the recently-finished SBS drama Protect the Boss. I watched each and every episode of the drama. I even texted him with things like: “The drama is fun, I see?” and “You’re good at acting, I see?” I also joked to him, saying he should invite me to the afterparty…

[Added Junsu!! ^_^ ++ and JYJ!]

Q: How do you spend your time on days that you are off?

Hyunjoong: I need to run around freely and play. I play soccer with JYJ’s Kim Junsu, and I also like travelling. I usually travel to Kyungkido, such as Misari. I go with my friends and eat chicken soup and beef short ribs soup.

Hyunjoong on Friends JYJ: When I just meet them and say things like ‘when do you guys come out on TV,’ and they say ‘the stations say we can’t, so what can we do.’ Even yesterday, I met with Jaejoong and talked. In any case there is no one to talk about the stress about [the topic of] appearing on TV, and also JYJ are my three good friends.

Singer cum actor Kim HyunJoong (25) revealed his final goal.

Kim HyunJoong said in an interview with the reporters on 10-Oct morning “As a dance singer, my biggest dream is to hold a last concert for free to the fans during my best moments on stage, at my peak of career, and then retire.”

He continued “Because I think that I cannot continue to be a dance singer when I become thirty-something, so I will return to find my fans with a different music style after that. I was originally specializing in bass, I learned other instruments too in order to make my own music, and also studied a lot about music, I thought of going into a band-style of music next time.”

He added again “I think that band music is the type of music that you are able to play until you die, I want to enjoy it while also doing acting.”

Meanwhile, Kim HyunJoong’s 2nd mini album’s title song ‘Lucky Guy’ is made up of band instruments, an exciting funky rock style song.

Kim HyunJoong will be making his comeback stage for ‘Lucky Guy’ through Mnet’s ‘M!Countdown’ on 20-Oct, and will continue his activities for about 3 weeks.

English Translation: Allkpop





SS501‘s Kim Hyun Joong held a press conference commemorating the release of his 2nd mini-album, “Lucky“, where he discussed the goals he had for his latest work.

The 2nd mini album starts off with “Do You Like That” and “Lucky Guy”, two tracks that carry a pop-meets-punk rock flavor. They are then followed by the softer songs, “I’m Your Man” and “U”.

Kim Hyun Joong stated, “The 1st mini album showed you the first glimpse of my image as a solo artist, and my capability in being able to ‘fill up’ the stage by myself without having all the members of SS501 there. The 2nd mini album will focus more on music in itself; as in it’s meant to be listened to, rather than being a background track for the visual components.”

He continued, “I didn’t dream of being a rocker, but I’ve always liked rock before joining SS501. I was in a school band during middle school, and played bass at church. I wanted to become a musician behind a cool rocker. I want to incorporate more rock genre music into future concepts.”

Although the promotion period for the 1st mini album was short, Kim Hyun Joong managed to sell 130,000 copies and the responses from international fans were also very positive.

He confessed, “It wasn’t easy promoting alone. There was a lot of work to do, from developing the album concept to finding songs, and it was exhausting. Before, I only had to do well on my parts, but as a solo artist, I had to calculate things like where it was hard for me to breathe while dancing; consequently, it was more difficult.”

Kim Hyun Joong continued, “But through the 1st solo promotions, I learned a lot of things such as how to control the tempo and speed.”

When asked what his goals for the new album were, Kim Hyun Joong stated, “I want this album to do better than the 1st mini album, and I want to hear that I’m the best as a solo artist out of all the SS501 members.”

He continued, “In the beginning of November, there’ll be a new digital single, and in January of next year, I will release another album.”

Kim Hyun Joong also talked about his acting plans as well. “I don’t think I can be a singer and an actor at the same time… When I’m a singer, I want the fans to see me as a singer… The Asia tour will end next June, then right after that I’ll start acting. Later on in the year, I’ll come back to the fans through a drama.” He added, “If I rest for too long, I become lazy… I’m also slowly starting to think about doing movies as well.”

After his appearances in popular dramas like KBS‘s ‘Boys over Flowers‘ and MBC‘s ‘Playful Kiss‘, many are interested in Hyun Joong’s return as an actor.
