Korean actor-singer Kim Hyun Joong surprised fans when he relayed his desire to high-five all 3,000 concertgoers at his first Asia Fan Meeting in Singapore held last night. It was icing on the cake for everyone present when he selflessly continued that act of generosity and topped it up by presenting all attendees with a U:ZOOSIN t-shirt and brooch.

Anything for the fans, he says, and we’re not even counting the dollars and cents (read: sense) involved in this exchange…

The “luckiest guy on earth” to be doing what he’s doing right now, Hyun Joong’s recent two showcases in Yokohama, Japan, sold out in mere minutes; tickets were balloted to pick 20,000 lucky concertgoers out of 60,000 applicants.

Rating his own performance thus far, the humble chap says he still has “a long way to go” to reach out to a global audience and “if there are 100 steps towards reaching my goal, I feel that I might be at my 10th step so far.”

For someone whose mini-albums are accompanied by complicated dance choreography that gets “increasingly challenging” with each album, the 25-year-old assures he’ll be dancing for “as long as my bones are still intact”. Fans might even get to see him flaunt his guitar skills in future promotions and albums since he used to be a bass guitarist in school.

This charismatic poster boy of Korean beauty goods and preppy threads is as random as random gets. With a title album titled ‘Lucky Guy‘, Hyun Joong shared a lesser-known tidbit about himself at his interview with xinmsn at Fairmont Hotel Singapore, and spoke about his superstitious habits.

“I’m not entirely superstitious for a lot of things but I have certain sides to myself. For example, when I have a good dream, I might go out and buy the lottery (laughs),” said Hyun Joong.

Then he continued, flashing a toothy grin, “Yeah, I just struck the lottery last week and I won 5000 Korean won.”

“Five dollars (chuckles),” he carefully adds.

When xinmsn mentioned his crystal encrusted iPad casing of crystals with a U:ZOOSIN character, Hyun Joong admits that flamboyant bling is not his cup of tea, but he tries to use it whenever he can “because it’s something made by fans”.

So what’s he into these days after his previous fixation with Paladog in 2011?

After mulling over the questions for a good 10 seconds, he quipped, “Chinese chess”.

“I learnt it when I was young and used to play it when I was young. But I didn’t use to be good at it in my younger days and it comes with practice. Whenever I play against the computer, I may win two rounds out of three rounds [now].”

Despite looking knackered having touched down less than six hours ago, Hyun Joong cut himself no slack during the 16-minute-long interview. Although our plans to do a mini show-and-tell with Hyun Joong on his ‘five travel necessities’ was scraped by the management at the eleventh hour, the Korean star made up for it with his earnest answers, and struck us with his unabashed sincerity, unflinching love for fans, and of course, his 4D (aka eccentric) personality.

Is it even any wonder why he’s so adored by thousands around the globe?

This definitely explains for his deep-v tops and sexy blazer-sans-the-shirt getup during the event. Credit: Xinmsn

It felt more like a mini-concert with value-added fan interaction, going by the amount of songs Kim Hyun Joong performed for fans last night at the first stop for his Asia tour of Kim Hyun Joong Fan Meeting 2012 in Singapore.

Flanked by a total of 10 dancers, Hyun Joong opened the two-hour long show with fast-paced tracks such as ‘Let Me Go’, ‘Breakdown’ and ‘Please’, and upped the ante of the show when he flaunted his man abs at the end of his third song.

Singing and dancing non-stop to a total of nine songs from his boyband days, drama shows, and two mini-albums, Breakdown and Lucky Guy, he got his fans to participate in a sing-along for ‘Happiness’, with specially rewrote lyrics in English that went: Happiness without you, I cannot imagine it.

He got fans cooing when he added in Korean, “I feel that this song truly expresses my feeling to all of you guys. I’ll put in my whole heart, and I really love this line so I’ve prepared it in English so that we can sing it together.”

He’s straightforward and a little offbeat, together with his newly-crafted manly image these are some of the many reasons why it’s a rarity to see him do any ‘ageyo’ (cutesy actions) before a crowd. Last night, during the stage activities with five fans, Hyun Joong showed off his cute antics when he reenacted three iconic blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe’s signature moves. That’s priceless.

His ambition is to become a “World Idol”, he can supposedly make you feel “healed” just by the sight of his face, and he has promised to high five all 3,000 fans during his fan meet at the Singapore Indoor Stadium this Friday.

With such big ambitions and a larger-than-life reputation preceding Korean idol Kim Hyun Joong, it is easy to dismiss him as just another wannabe, but when this reporter met him in the flesh, it became clear why he has legions of fans who worship the ground under his impeccably stylish leather shoes.

Firstly, everything about the Hallyu star looks perfect. Not a single strand of carefully coiffed ash-brown hair is out of place, and even up close, his face appears to be devoid of pores, blemishes, or any other defect that plagues lesser human beings.

When he smiles, he displays two rows of white, shiny straight teeth and his eyes sparkle with such sincerity that it would take a strong-willed woman not to go weak at the knees. Even his voice is warm, mellow, and completely in line with his image.

Kim is, after all, the actor who played Yoon Ji Hoo – the sweet, sensitive second male lead of wildly successful Korean series Boys Over Flowers that catapulted him to instant super-stardom in 2009.

Here in Singapore to kick-start a series of Asian fan meetings, Kim will be singing and dancing to 14 of his songs and play several games with his fans before attempting to high five each and every one of them.

During the course of the press conference and subsequent group interview, it becomes apparent that his answers are as perfectly prepared as the rest of his appearance, from his sharp black blazer to deep v-neck shirt that exposes just a hint of male cleavage.

Questions about what kind of girl he likes aren’t allowed – neither are we permitted to ask if he will re-unite with the other members of boy-band SS501.

According to Yahoo: This is what we got from him -

What can fans expect from his fan-meeting?

“The best way to find out is to come for the fan meeting – fans usually think that such meetings are just a small group of people interacting, but this time it is more like a fan meeting ‘upgraded’ – with a mini concert. Please come and have fun.

You’ve been to Singapore thrice – what do you love the most and what do you miss about this country?

Predictably Kim responds that his fans are what he loves the most – however he does say later that he loves Singapore’s chilli crab and has been to the Marina Bay Sand’s infinity pool and liked it very much.

Why attempt to set such a record in high fiving 3,000 people and why did he decide to do that?

“I wanted to make sure that everyone coming for the fan meeting has the best fun – I hope to meet everyone of them up close and remember all their faces. It would be like a small gift from me.”

What are your musical influences?

“I don’t have any particular musical influence. Usually I follow the weather. For today, its humid and dull weather, so I listen to ballads and slow music from my own album. I hope Friday’s weather will be much better.”

Perhaps some of his answers are lost in translation and not deliberately bland because he appears to think before answering, fiddling with a silver bracelet on his wrist.

One thing is clear – he is single-minded in his quest to make it as a “World Idol”, who he defines as being someone that “people admire and look up to.”

How did you prepare for your upcoming fan-meeting?

“I was supposed to go for a Lady Gaga concert before flying here. But I missed the concert because I felt that I needed to practice more.”

 

Just when you thought that getting non-politically correct answers was impossible from Kim, flashes a disarming grin and drops a few cheeky, unexpected answers.

When you are not performing or on stage, what is your fashion sense like?

“I like to wear track shoes, something comfortable, that feels like my own skin, so that I can practice well.”

And the one fashion move he will never take?

“Shave my head bald.” he quips without hesitation.

He also revealed that unlike his character in Boys Over Flowers, which he described as “Cold, calm, and Prince-like” – the “real” him, is actually “Very humorous, playful, and lively.”

And how will fans get to know that side of him?

“A video at the fan meeting.” he said.

Besides getting to watch those videos, fans will also receive a t-shirt and brooch specially designed by him.

That, as well as a chance to go palm to palm with Kim and pray that he truly remembers your face?

Its no wonder all the premiere seats (closest to the stage) for his fan meeting are completely sold out.

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

Everything you need to know to get your tickets to the May 4 event

 

It will be a night to remember for fans of Korean heartthrob Kim Hyun Joong.

 

Fans can expect spectacular laser shows, sprawling LED screens, a performance of more than 10 hits coupled with impeccable dance choreography and cosy talk show segments at the upcoming Kim Hyun Joong Asia Fan Meeting 2012, to be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, on May 4.

 

With a plump programme more akin to a mini concert, the completely original show is one never seen before at any other regular fan meetings, and promises to add a personal touch in Singapore.

 

The best seats in the house — less than 500 premiere seats and less than 900 arena seats — will allow fans to see Leader Kim up close, with the closest you can get being just one arm’s length away from the stage. Additionally, fans will also have the chance to go on stage and interact with the star.

 

Known for his whole-hearted fan service and intimate conversation with fans — the 26-year-old offered solutions to fans’ problems in his trademark humorous and witty way — local fans can definitely expect more surprises from Hyun Joong himself at the upcoming event.

 

Public sale of the 3,000 limited tickets to Kim Hyun Joong Asia Fan Meeting 2012 will commence on 10am, Apr 20, and are priced at S$138 (balcony), S$168 (terrace) and S$198 (arena & premiere seats), with a maximum of four tickets per transaction.
