He was just accompanying the DSP's CEO to another gathering but on their way, the CEO got a message to make a courtesy call to an old friend. And so, what would a man do but to be polite and show some respect - he simply cannot just walk out of that place just because he doesn't support the man - that would be uncouth. However, news had spread like wildfire as this former president had brought great distress to the Korean population. It was like, if you support him you're persona non grata.
Like what the DSP notice said, it doesn't really matter whether Hyun Joong stayed for just a minute or for 10 minutes, as long as he was there, people were simply flabbergasted that he was seen in that event. Well, entertainment celebrities should not really get into the mix of dirty politics, I guess the DSP CEO forgot about that.
From all the pain Hyun Joong is feeling right now, TripleS has actually rallied to cheer him up. Liezle has asked fans to leave comments on her site for messages for Hyun Joong and that it will be posted in PERFECT - a Korean site that Leader had visited just to see the fans' reaction.
I did left a message there - drafted it while at work and on a meeting - but since there was such an outpour of messages, it might get buried in the whole mass. So here it is...
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
Fans can come and go. Friends can come and go. Family can leave you behind, but always remember that God is with you always. He alone knows who Hyun Joong truly is and He alone can keep you safe from all the hurting.
Our words of encouragement and support may not ease the pain brought by the hurtful words from others. As they say, the pen is mightier than the sword. Superficial scars from punches and weapons can heal and fade but words that truly stab our hearts will forever linger.
Do take to heart that we are praying for you. We pray that other people will have an open mind to think things through before they open their mouths or even key in what they feel. We pray for people's understanding, We do believe that you were placed in a situation that you cannot simply get out of and having no choice.
Remember that you are loved.
