The final episode of Jung Min's 'What Women Want' just wrap up and Jung Min's new photo for SS501's new album was shown while it was airing.
He wrote a message for his employees on his image that says,
"I'm watching you. Do it right~!!!"
This is kinda tiring really reading speculations from different media corners. It has actually become so irritating that I simply have to post this compendium of related news on Hyun Joong and the fate of SS501. Please note that everything is on hearsay and speculations, nothing is set in stone.
People do change: remember that. Here's what all I can say for now. Whatever is Hyun Joong's decision will be, I will support him. What I want to know is what is his goal? What is his vision for himself 10 or 15 years from now? Does he want to be a distinguished singer or an accomplished actor? Any other way, I truly believe that he has a long, long way to go. Sorry ardent Hyun Joong fans, but that is the real truth. I am a huge, huge Kim Hyun Joong fan - he is my no. 1 SS501 boy man. But from the looks of things, yes looks that's where he gets his leverage. He's not a natural-born actor nor an exceptional singer. What he's got is the x-factor and the perseverance to excel.
I think his popularity now outside of Korea is thanks to both BOF and SS501 activities. He got into the overseas fans psyche because of BOF, but if SS501 did not concentrate on overseas activities, he'd just be another cute actor in some k-drama. SS501 activities/concerts sealed the deal. Fans suddenly realized that there's more to this guy that just being a jilted great looking guy. It's the same thing that's happening to that guy from C.N.Blue Jung Yong Hwa.
I bet you that there's no other person more annoyed with all things thrown in the table than Kim Hyun Joong. So let's all wait.

Popular group SS501's leader KimHyunJoong's contract with company DSP Entertainment will expire on next month, which aroused the interest of everyone in the entertainment circle about his future moves.
Besides doing singer activities under group SS501, KimHyunJoong also starred in drama Boys over Flowers which boosted his popularity and arose to an A-lister in the FA markets. Entertainment circle related personnel said, KimHyunJoong's moves have been the focus of attention in chinese speaking countries as well as in Asia, and because SS501 is a hugely popular group whose activities have been influential enough, their future activities have also been under scrutiny.
On the 6th, according to DSPEnt personnel and a close acquaintance of the members, up until now, KimHyunJoong has not had renewed his contract with DSP yet, many various agencies are now offering him huge amount of renewal fee with them to join in their agency company.
Right after the japan concert in Saitama Arena Japan ended, SS501 members have been gathering together to discuss about their future plans.
A related personnel and representative of a particular agency has expressed, KimHyunJoong might be joining forces with the three members of DBSG (JaeJoong, Junsu, Yoochun) who has left SM company in their new company, there's a possibility", and, "DBSG's 3 members (who has left SM) is the center of focus asian-wide, and since they have been carrying out many various activities everywhere, they had been directing towards the right direction. Especially since KimHyunJoong has been living in the same house as JaeJoong, they have been having many talks about their career like this already".
Also, recently KimHyunJoong met up with BaeYongJoon, their secret meeting caused about many speculations in the ent world.
Though with such a situation, there's still also a possibility that KimHyunJoong may continue to stay in his present agency.
A related personnel said, "SS501 will be making comeback with their new album in this month, and since so, they have been discussing with the agency company about their temporary stay in the company for another 1 more month", mentioning such a point like that. With regards to KimHyunJoong's leave or stay, there are many speculations circulating around, and it seems like these talks will not be dismissed in the month to come about SS501's decision.
On the other hand, if KimHyunJoong ends up in another company, though he would also be continuing his actor activities, he would also be continuing with SS501's singer activities separately. Just like the current Shinhwa members, though in different agency companies, they have still been holding activities under the name of Shinhwa. Another one is group G.O.D, members have still been carrying out activities in unison at times though belonging to two separate agencies. To this, just what choice will KimHyunJoong make has really been arousing the interest of every party.
To sum it up, whether or not the following 3 choices, KimHyunJoong will continue to remain in his present agency company, KimHyunJoong will be an actor with his solo status but yet still carry out singer activities as SS501, or to move to a new agency company with SS501 members, these 3 choices are indeed the time of domineering talks in the entertainment world right this period of time.
Of course on the side of company DSP who's expressed, though HyunJoong will remain in SS501, they will still render utmost support to HyunJoong with his activities carried out as an actor, so whether or not the final decision, they are still in midst of discussion presently.
Because the contract expiry date is drawing nearer, SS501's future moves have aroused the huge concern of fans. Right now, members are preparing for new album. The album is set to be released in mid-may and onwards, and thereafter, there's only about 2~3 weeks of comeback promotion until the contract expiry date.
There are many news and articles revolving around the members' renewal as well as unrelated talks. Moreover, right now DSP media's CEO Lee Ho-yeon-nim is still receiving treatment in the hospital, until he recovers and gets discharged, they will need quite some time in order to decide on a proper decision.
KimHyunJoong who is both a singer and an actor isn't just a top star in Korea, but also in asian regions. Whether he will move to a new agency, or continue with DSP media to renew contract, his future moves after contract expires is now the focus of all.
To this, DSP media still has not expressed their firm stand on this. They simply expressed their views to all with "Now is not the right timing to discuss about this", such a standpoint.
DSP media personnel said, "Right now, the CEO is still sick on his bed (CEO Lee Hoyeon-nim), that's why KimHyunJoong's contract renewal direction is still unclear. When the CEO recovers, after that then it's possible for us to discuss this together", and also with, "KimHyunJoong too doesn't find it reasonable to decide on a right decision now before the CEO recovers. He's now fully focused on preparations for upcoming new album to be released in this month".
To this he also added, "Of course by right, what the agency wishes for is that KimHyunJoong and SS501 will remain with them together", "For the sake of this, though we want to but yet unable to come up with firm and detailed discussions, those rumours revolving around KimHyunJoong's future moves from the outside world has been getting kind of annoying because there are just too many talks to this and to that".
On the other hand, though SS501 will be releasing their album soon, but their title track and licensing issues have not even be settled, which asked for the need of a little more time, but they will still push the album out in this month.
hahah i kept on pressing the replay button! hahah
i so love leader. his so random!
singing After School song Ah to keep him awake... kekek
The host asked about the reason why Hyun Joong was chosen to act in this MV.
"Is it because of friendship(loyalty)?"
Mostly, she said that it is very difficult to find a suitable male actor to star in the MV
She and Hyun Joong are very best friends longtime ago
So she ask him if he can help her and of course, Hyun Joong accepted the offer right away.
Also, before filming the MV, SS501 had another filming schedule to attend.
Hyun Joong just rush to the filming site at midnight after filming SS501 schedule
He also need to continue filming for 2 over night before going to Japan for concert
The host asks why they'd become good friends.
Gummy said Hyun Joong was introduced by TVXQ Hero Jae Joong to her
"Because both of us are very passionate about music"
and their compatible personality so this made them very closed
Then, the host ask, Does Hyun Joong really loves to drink?
Gummy said Hyun Joong drank more before but recently is more control on his diet and exerise a lot
But Hyun Joong will drink more with his friend because they love drink
They will drink even not in a party…
Will update this post when the the rest of the parts are uploaded. It looked like it was done a very long time ago but this was only recorded during their promotion period for Rebirth on Nov 2009.

Okay, I think this was initially done because of Personal Taste's popularity but then Gummy's "As A Man" MV which features Hyun Joong was released last 30th April. Yes, he played in the MV as an unexpected housemate who turned lover then husband. Who wouldn't want to have this handsome young man for a roomie?
