experience since I saw them in a very good fashion sense. I saw a lot of girls wearing “hijab”
during the activities and I like it a lot.

R: What is the most important to you now, singing or acting?
KHJ: I never put any limitation on both of my careers but I believe the real job for me is to entertain my fans out there. The most important thing is that I can accomplish both fields with full of passion so that the fans will continue to support me.

R: The biggest challenge for you when you become a celebrity?
KHJ: Being a singer and an actor gave a big impact on me. It’s because I have to put 100% of the attention and also the effort in every job that I took. Be it in producing an album or even acting in a drama. It’s the booster for me to be more hardworking and take it as a challenge to myself.

R: Was it your childhood dream to be in this entertainment industry?
KHJ: I have always wanted to be a singer since I was a kid. As time passed by, I’ve been given chances to expend my career through acting and I started to fall into both careers now.

R: Your comment on how girls become crazy over your perfect flawless skin and face?
KHJ: For me, there are still lots of people who are better looking than me out there. I never expect my face to be the main asset for me to be at where I am right now. I believe all my hardwork to improve my singing and acting are the things I can offer to the fans out there.

Moleqre: We are already know about this, Hyun Joong~~ keke ^^

R: How do you feel to be appointed as the spokesperson for TheFaceShop products?
KHJ: TheFaceShop is the international cosmetic brand, where it’s also one of the way for me to meet my fans all over the world. Representing TheFaceShop also helps me to get the best advice about my skincare.

R: The best moment that you get with TheFaceShop so far?
KHJ: Being a celebrity means you have to put on lots of makeup on my face. Sometimes, it really worries me as I’m a busy person and have no time to give special treatment for my skin. However, with TheFaceShop products, I can easily follow the steps in getting a perfect care for my skin.

R: What are your favorite products that you use from TheFaceShop?
KHJ: I love the facial wash and also the body shower from TheFaceShop. It gives me a pleasant smell all day long.

R: Your greeting to all of your Malaysian fans out there.

Now whenever I go outside the country, I make sure I bring one extra charger.”


“As a singer, my dream is hold a free concert in big scale and invite all my fans. I have to do it one day later. Meanwhile for my acting dream, I wan to be the most anticipated actor in the future.”

Boys Before Flowers Image
Kim HyunJoong name can’t be parted from Yoon Ji Hoo character in Boys Before Flower drama. With handsome face and attractive smile, his character in the drama steal the heart of female audiences. Even, JiHoo’s popularity bring him the chance to play as Baek Seung Jo in Playful Kiss drama.

Seung Jo and Ji Hoo’s character don’t have big difference. That’s why Pretty Boy image or handsome man always close to Kim HyunJoong. But as an actor, he surely want to try new role that have big differences from his roles before.

“People look at me and always think that my image is pretty boy. Because I’m a new comer actor, I think they just give me a role that suits on my physical look. I’m sure I can play another role in the future.”

Beside close with handsome man image, Kim HyunJoong is also called as second Bae Yong Jun. He just joined the Winter Sonata actor’s company, KeyEast Entertainment. “People said my smile and the way I dress looks like him. I must be look like him in some ways they said. I really don’t know. Everytime I meet hyung, we can talk about acting and life comfortably. We can meet too often because he’s busy.”

Then, what about his personal dream? “I want to meet alien and go to the space. If alien come to me now and they want to do research with my body, I will go with them.”, he said in laugh. Beside go the other space, Kim HyunJoong admit wants to go to the south pole after he can visit north pole.

If he has to chose between Baek Seung Jo and Yoon Ji Hoo, he answer straight “Absolutely Ji Hoo. Seung Jo is clever but he’s poor. If I were JiHoo, I’ll be rich enough to go to the other space.”

Each SS501 member has their own talent, especially Kim HyunJoong who is famous all over Asia. But that doesn’t mean, there’s no future for SS501. Kim HyunJoong said, his group will be still exist in Korean entertainment world. Different schedule is the main problem for them to perform as SS501. Because each company has their own schedule.
