[4D News] Kim Hyun Joong Expresses His Disinterest in Acting

Kim Hyun Joong expressed his disinterest in acting when he first debuted as an actor. He’s long been criticized for his lack of acting skills, despite earning a number of lead roles due to his pretty face and popularity.
On the April 14 episode of MBC “K-Pop Star in the World – Lucky Guy Kim Hyun Joong,” the star actor/singer revealed his true feelings about the acting criticism. He said, “To be honest, and I’m sorry to all the sunbaes or people studying acting now, but I started out with absolutely no interest in acting. That’s probably why there were so many criticism on my acting in the early part of my career.”
Song Byung Joon, the director of Kim Hyun Joong’s two main dramas, “Boys over Flowers” and "Playful Kiss,” added, “His (Kim Hyun Joong) reading was literally just ‘reading’ the script. He read it like elementary school students reading their textbooks in class. At first the scriptwriter was frustrated. So we talked about it and I told the scriptwriter that since Kim Hyun Joong does not know what a ‘script reading’ session is, let’s try and wait to pull out his potential.”
Yang Yoon Ho, the producer of “Iris,” also said, “Of course I love Kim Hyun Joong, but the reason we bet on him is pretty clear. He has huge potential to become a mega star and he really takes good care of himself. His popularity now puts no pressure on him and he’s able to control everything. Even if his popularity grows, he seems like a person who will be able to handle it.”
Since his debut as part of SS501, Kim Hyun Joong expanded his resume to acting by appearing in the 2009 KBS drama “Boys over Flowers.” In 2010, he appeared in his second TV series, MBC “Playful Kiss.”
However, due to his lack of experience, many critics pointed to his poor acting skills and unclear articulation. There were also concerns that he lacked the charisma and leadership to play the lead role in any TV drama. But he’s been able to significantly improve his acting over the years and is now considered one of the very few idol stars with the star power to single-handedly lead a TV show.

[4DNews] Kim Hyun Joong Set to Break Record in Singapore

Kim Hyun Joong is set to break the record by any performing artist in Singapore by offering the closest interaction with his audience during his mini-concert on May 4. Originally, only 500 lucky fans would be picked to high-five with him through a ballot. However, Kim Hyun Joong has personally requested to extend this to everyone in attendance, meaning a whopping 3000 fans will now get the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the star! This is an unprecedented gesture from a pop idol.
High-five sessions are normally private sessions that are open to only a small group of fans as part of the fan-meeting package. Fans would either pay a premium fee to enjoy the chance for interaction with their favorite artiste or pray that their lady luck shines on them brightly for them to be picked through a lucky draw. However, Kim Hyun Joong has taken this a step further by expressing his wish to high-five every single member of the audience.
"This is a very special request we’ve received, which proves Kim Hyun Joong’s immense devotion to his fans. We are glad that fans in Singapore will get a very personal touch - pun intended - with Kim Hyun Joong; but we’re also excited that all members in the audience will be part of a record-breaking moment," says Wendy Ng, Executive Producer of Running Into The Sun.

On top of that, Kim Hyun Joong will also be giving away to everyone in the audience one set of the U:ZOOSIN T-shirt and brooch, a cartoon avatar created by Kim Hyun Joong himself. These will be specially made for his fan meeting tour. U:ZOOSIN has sold 50,000 units in Korea alone, boasting approximately USD1,900,000 in sales.
"Kim Hyun Joong 2012 Asia Fan Meeting in Singapore" will showcase more than 10 songs and interactive segments in a two-hour show. Premiere seats, which are seats closest to the stage, have completely sold out. However, fans may still purchase good seats from the Arena and Terrace categories through SISTIC. This fan-meeting will be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 4. "Kim Hyun Joong Asia Fan Meeting 2012 Singapore" is brought to you by official card UOB Cards, and organized by Running Into The Sun and AMC Group Singapore.

Singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong will be sharing his hidden passions through an MBC  special titled K-Pop Stars Captivating the World‘.
The program will be following top K-Pop stars like Kim Hyun Joong, CNBLUE, B2ST, and IU and go through a full 24 hour day with them to see just what is behind the scenes, in an effort to better determine whether the Hallyu wave can continue to grow all over the world or eventually run stagnant.
