To see Kim HyunJoong... 350 local and overseas media crowded at ‘Mischievous Kiss’ Production Press Conference
As much as the heated news coverage... Fan clubs also organized their supporters
“Let’s catch hold of Kim HyunJoong!”
Being called as post Yon-sama, it is not uncommon to gain the interest from local and overseas regarding actor Kim HyunJoong from group SS501.
Kim HyunJoong attended to MBC new Wed-Thu drama ‘Mischievous Kiss’ production press conference held on 26-Aug afternoon at Imperial Palace Hotel at NonHyun-dong, GangNam-gu, Seoul. About 350 media from local and overseas requested to attend and cover (news) for the press conference on this day.
Production company Group Eight, who oversees the press conference, said “We understand that about 350 local and overseas media have requested to attend ’Mischievous Kiss’ press conference. This is about the same level as the previous production ‘Boys Over Flowers’ and ‘Goong’ press conference, where overseas ticket power DongBangShinGi’s member Uknow Yunho acted in.”
Already predicted was the heated interest about Kim HyunJoong. After gaining success beyond expectations in ‘Boys Over Flowers’ last year, he strengthens his position as a singer and of course, as an actor, making a firm stand as the Hallyu star of the next generation. Furthermore, as ‘Mischievous Kiss’ is his first production after joining Key East, company where Hallyu star Bae YongJoon is a major shareholder of, it seems to have created even more interest in Japan and overseas.
Meanwhile, during the press conference, Kim HyunJoong’s fans also organized their supporters to be volunteers. Production company hinted “The fan club spontaneously prepared gifts for Kim HyunJoong and the reporters. They prepared Kim HyunJoong’s photo album and large ice sculpture wishing for the success for the drama. They spontaneously prepared light refreshments and some gifts for the reporters.”
