Kim Hyun Joong (Singer)
At the news of the earthquake, I am struck by surprise and much concerned about the situation. While I am looking for what I can do, I came to know about GACKT ssi’s great proposal. I would like to express my full agreement with him
I believe that even a small force of one person, we can be big together and support the people under the disaster

After the screening of “Playful Kiss”, Kim Hyun Joong was belatedly recognized by Internet users in Korea, and Kim Hyun Joong’s name became a phenomenon based on the number of hits that this drama series was obtained within 6 weeks. This led to their producers and Youtube.com out with a special edition which has become the most anticipated and talked-about drama in chatbox and other social networks. Riding on this popularity, CNN interview with Kim Hyun Joong and the people behind this drama after the initial success of the first two special episodes online, received 768,591 visits in just two days. The demand of the international community to subtitle this drama in several languages, has also been unprecedented.
Before becoming an Internet superstar, Kim Hyun Joong was a musician, who formed his own band SS501 constantly became popular in Korea and Japan. His appearance on “We Got Married” was the starting point of his career as an actor. He became a household name and landed the role of Ji Hoo in the greatest drama of 2009, “Boys Over Flowers.” Although he played a secondary roll in this popular drama, his popularity rose to unprecedented proportion desnumerando the main actors in the drama series. With it came many commercials and concerts throughout Asia. Today, Kim Hyun Joong is considered one of the most influential names in the entertainment industry in Asia. All his movements, hair styles, clothing and accessories are being copied by his legions of fans worldwide who follow and worship him through the Internet. KH J is really the first Cyberstar of Asia! Playful Kiss, “Kim Hyun Joong at its best.
I’ve never seen the chat so in tune with people around the world only by a Korean soap opera starring Kim Hyun Joong, a singer of the band SS501, who shot to fame through “Boys Over Flowers.” What happens? There is a famous actor and only played a secondary role with Lee Min Ho in his latest drama. Although he can sing and dance like the other members Kband, his popularity soars to unprecedented scale, which goes beyond Korea and into all the borders of Asia, North America and South America and other places where Internet powerful can get.
What explains their success is still disturbing to many analysts and agents of entertainment. Their fans confessed that her enigmatic smile and make them look crazy. Media reporters conclude that the total package. If you ask ordinary people who barely know him say must be written in the stars. Are you destined to shine and capture the hearts and minds of millions of fans worldwide? No wonder that when “Kiss Playful” begins airing on cyberspace comes packed with young people, housewives, retirees, workers and Internet users want to watch this soap opera as if tomorrow does not arrive. His anger is understandable. They cry out for more close-ups and scenes of kissing his leading lady hates for harassing him and his love for his devotion, and shout with all honesty in the discussion box for more episodes to come.
With all due respect to the writer ¨ “Playful Kiss,” the drama is all spiced with the right ingredients of a blockbuster, but the subsequent slaughter of Kim Hyun Joong fans after he stars in this drama is epic proportion. The drama increases superstar status to make him the number one imported from Korea.

The Yonsamas are ready to help!
On March 14th, KEYEAST announced to the public that Bae Yong-joon and Kim Hyun-joong donated money to Japan’s relief efforts. Yong-joon gave $890,000, while Hyun-joong graciously donated $71,000. Yonsama urged the government to use his money to fund the basic necessities (including food and water). He is very concerned about the people. Hyun-joong admitted that his money wasn’t much, but he hopes his effort can aid the people in some way. The initial shock and heartbreaking news of the current situation after the earthquake and tsunami made the singer quickly run to their aid.
The damage and nuclear explosions that have taken place aches your heart. I truly commend these two celebrities for their willingness to give. In addition, the phrase Pray for Japan is truly needed.

As the damaged of the massive earthquake in Japan is spreading, Hallyu stars Japanese schedules are being cancelled or postponed as well.
Kim Hyun-joong was to attend a promotion event in Tokyo nhk Hall on the 13th but it got cancelled and he never left. Ryoo Soo-yeong had a fan meeting in Osaka Nikko Hotel but that was postponed. Singer and actor Kim Jeong-hoon also had a fan meeting on the same day in Saitama Super Arena but cancelled and returned to Korea on the 13th. He had been preparing since the 8th.
Future events in Japan are also uncertain. Jang Geun-seok was looking forward to his singing debut stage with 20 thousand or so fans on the 27th in Tokyo but even that is not certain. His management says, "The Japanese also are not sure of what will happen so we are going to wait a couple of days".
Kara is planned to appear in the "Universal Dream Live 2011" in Osaka Universal Studio on Asahi TV "Music Station" on the 13th but is waiting for their Japanese management to call. It also looks like those singers that were to debut in Japan might not go according to plan.
Female group 2NE1 was supposed to debut through Asahi TV "Music Station" and start overall local activities starting at the end o March, but was postponed due to the great earthquake and isn't sure of what will happen now. Their management YG Entertainment said, "We might have to postpone the entire plan".
Even male group Beast is supposed to be revolving on their promotion activities but is stepping back to see the situation. MBLAQ who planned a long term stay in Japan for their Japanese debut in April say, "The Japanese entertainment can't confirm anything and so can't we".
The Hallyu stars who have cancelled or postponed their activities altogether say, "It is a definite thing we cancel our events". Kim Jeong-hoon's management says, "This was his first event after being discharged from the army but as the damages from the tragedy spreads it was a definite decision to cancel it".

Extending my deepest condolences to the victims of the Earthquake that happened in the North-eastern Pacific region
I understand that on the 11th of March, there was an earthquake in the north-eastern pacific. After knowing about the devastating aftermath of the earthquake, I am very worried.
Originally the event was to be held today, and I've been looking forward to meet everyone. However, because of the disaster that happened, we were forced to cancel the plans to visit Japan.
I am not sure if every victim of the earthquake are all in a very dire state or not, but I really hope that everyone will take care of their health and continue to pray that everyone can quickly go back to live in safe, peaceful times again.
I look forward to the day when I could see everyone in the highest form again.
I think No.1 should belong SS501....especially my Hyun Joong hehehe..XDD
