[05/09] Radio Interview of Hyung Jun in Singapore

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting.

Credits to YES 93.3 + OdeDS501 + (English translation) ss501ode.blogspot.com

Back at the location when this interview was conducted, the host was squealing because Hyungjun touched her hands as he saw her holding the recording tape and looked uncomfortable, so he stretches his hand to wanna help her; and incidentally he touched her hand a lil'. She's happy and squealed a little.

The translator translates and leave out many details so I type them out again and adds in (important) stuff. ^^

[Q] We all know Kim Hyungjun is a member of the wildly popular idol group SS501. Right now, he's also busy with some of his own works, if so, then at his young age, he should be very very busy now. Then...won't he feel tired or burdened being a star being a celebrity?

[A] 14s
Mm...I don't really feel so. Just, because music is what I can do, and it's what I like, the side I'm showing now is nice, and because I'm always working hard, kept on working hard until now. I do think hardworking is the most important thing. I think by working hard all the time you will be able to achieve your goal.

-next is translator's speech-
He thinks being a star is not exactly hard, because he likes singing, and he thinks that this is what he is, to him, the most important thing is to try his best all the time, don't get lazy and just try his best and keep moving forward.

[Q] 52s - Why does Kim Hyungjun love to sing so much?

-translator's version-
Since young, he always liked to perform on stage, like to show people his singing, his talents, his dance moves, something that he's born with...

-add on something not translated-
No matter what it is, he always has the thought to want to show people and perform to them.

[Q] 1.16 - Besides dancing, singing, good-looking, the qualities that an idol must possess, Kim Hyungjun can also compose. So where does his inspiration for composition come from?

[A] He says he always take reference from his own personal experiences that he's gone through.

-translator's version-
His inspiration most of the time comes from something that he experience, his thoughts, because he thinks that by composing a song using his own experience, it will actually bring out the emotions better.

[Q] 2.07 - If his inspiration has to come from personal experiences, then what if he writes sad ballads, won't he have to go through the heartache of love, then won't Kim Hyungjun be so agonized?

[A] He says he likes to write the lyrics on his own, and he feels that he's able to express the feeling better if he uses own experiences. He has many different thoughts, so he wants to put across most or all of his personal experiences.

-translator's version-
Because, most of his songs come from his own experiences and his thoughts, he don't think that it will be so hard -ERM- because -ERM- in a way it is his job, -ERM- as a singer to compose and to sing, -ERM- and he wants his songs to be truthful, as truthful as possible, so he doesn't want to add anything that is not him -YEAH- into his work..... So yeah, it wouldn't be so hard... -YEAH-

Hyungjun: Sad emotions, yeah for sad emotions it's when I experienced it when I write sad songs.

Translator: When he's writing a sad song, yeah, it's just (actually) because he's experienced something sad (notice her sudden British accent). It's nothing to be so hard or something that will be so difficult... yeah

[Q] 3:33 - Until now, we still have not seen Kim Hyungjun's performance in the acting field. if he's given a chance to act, what role would he want to challenge?

[A] Well, some time ago, I wanted to portray a bright, lively character. Something like a youngsty sitcom, But now, I thought I want to challenge a tougher and gruffy character, been thinking of that for quite long; like, Killer? *bang bang bang, Killer~~* If not, something like Wonbin from movie Ahjussi recently who's so cool and who goes around finding the woman he loves, yeah that kind of gloomy, solitary and manly type. Gloomy character, I wanna try it once.

Actually, initially his thought was, he wanted to try out a character that's more lively? Something more comical. But now, if he ever starts acting in the future, then he wants to try out something more, something that can give fans more impression. Like killers, yeah. And recently he watched this movie called Ahjussi, and in Ahjussi there was this korean actor called Won bin, he acted as this man with lotsa sad memories and sad experiences, and his character was pretty gloomy. And he also would wanna try out a character something similar to that.

[Q] 4:50 - What advices does Kim Hyungjun have for the youngsters out there who wants to get into showbiz?

[A] Because I myself had gone through 5 years of training period, and had learnt alot (notice his sad-changing tone)... Because I started, I didn't wanna give up that's why. If you really wanna step into showbiz, then until the end, until the moment you step onto stage, though it will be hard, but during your training days, you must not give up, and work harder than others, you will shine brighter and perform better than others, because you will become a singer eventually. Don't give up because it's tough, just keep working hard and you will get there. You will eventually step onto stage and show yourself with many chances. Encourage yourself and work hard.

ERM he was a trainee for 5 years himself, and there are times he wants to give up, but the most important thing is to keep trying. Never give up and always put in the extra effort, so just keep going, keep going, don't give up, if your goal is to be in a show business, then you should try your best to reach that goal and yeah, always put in your best effort.

[Q] 5:59 - On stage, Hyungjun is always so jovial and cute, and even sometimes comical, then off-screens, is he also like that?

[A] To be honest, at home, I'm less -happy- ? ahh wrong, less lively, but when I'm on stage, I'm more bubbly, because I did career activities for more than 5 years already, the image I protrude on stage is mostly lively and bright, but at home, I'm more quiet and less naughty, but outside I have to be the mood-maker, I talk more and wants to show a more positive side. like when 5 of us are together, I want to be the person to live up the atmosphere. Rather than the gloomy person. And I want to show my lively side always, yeah but I personally don't think I have lotsa differences.

His usual character is, ERM, he won't say it's total different from when he's on stage, but at home, he's less talkative, and as the first child of his family, he doesn't talk that much and tries to be more matured. But on stage, in order to entertain the fans and to ensure everyone has a great time, he tries to be more lively, more cheerful, more talkative, so yeah that's just a bit of difference.

[Q] 7:23 - lastly, let's have Kim Hyungjun introduce a solo song of his I AM.

[A] In our SS501 albums, there's this album called URMan where it includes our solo songs. At that time, only 3 of us were carrying out activities. Amidst which, there is this solo song, I AM. Let's listen to it together.

This song I AM is from the previous album that SS501 has produced, yeah it's URMan. That album consists of solo songs sung by each member, and, yeah I AM is one of the songs that he sang alone.

Since wuri boys are already active in Twitter, I will just make one post a today to combine all their tweets. I'd try to post them in order so that you can see a coherent flow of the conversation. Please read the tweets from bottom upwards. I am going to try to color-code the translations from now on. Oh, why does our Young Saeng sound like some fanboy asking people to follow him. (kekeke) Aigoo, somebody tell him that others can read his mentions even without them following him.

[10/09] It is still too early for Naughty Kiss to give up

3.4%, Playful Kiss, the reason why it's still early to give up yet

MBC Wed-Thurs drama Playful Kiss recorded ratings of 3.4% (09 Sept, #4). This was lower by 0.1% than #3 broadcasted on 8 September with 3.5%. A few of the broadcasting personnel expressed their thoughts on Playful Kiss who is facing the worst situation, "It isn't impossible yet that the drama will not be revived".

However, it is still too early to think about giving up. Since only 4 episodes have been aired so far, there are many guesses throughout here and there that there will be possibility of a rise in ratings soon.

Solid storyline... KimHyunJoong-JungSoMin Loveline Anticipation UP

The first possibility would be that Baek Seungjo (Kim Hyunjoong) and Oh Hani (Jung Somin)'s loveline is beginning to slowly develop itself. Oh Hani has been living in shame since sending her self-penned love letter to Baek Seungjo. Baek Seungjo whom, disregards Oh Hani in every single circumstance, has begun to slowly open his heart up to Oh Hani, as was seen in the episode aired on 9 September.

Baek Seungjo who has been so arrogant throughout is slowly beginning to change. Because of that, Baek Seungjo and Oh Hani's love story that will soon spread its wings is grabbing the attention of audiences.

-next paragraph omit, introduction of drama-

Drama Boys over Flowers had similarly faced the same situation whereby it was facing a tough battle in the beginning against MBC drama 'Eaden of East', yet in the end it achieved huge success with its increasing ratings.

The hardwork of the actors.. Audiences Are Aware

The 2nd possibility is because the good acting by the young actors and the vetarans. In particular veterans Jung Hyeyoung, Kang Namgil etc, they show their passion for acting. Especially where this drama is so manhwa-like, there will bound to be many overly-exaggerated cases.
Because of that, this kind of drama style is not easy for the vetarans to portray for the first time. However, the veterans managed to portray their characters without any trace of awkwardness. Not forgetting that protagonists Kim Hyunjoong, Jung Somin etc, these young actors display acting skills that illuminate on itself, too.

Of course, the hard work of these young actors Kim Hyunjoong and Jung Somin is very much obvious. Kim HyunJoong has now upgraded his acting from the perfect yet warm guy Yoon Jihoo into the tough yet perfect guy Baek Seungjo. As to how Kim Hyunjoong will digest his character Baek Seungjo slowly falling for Oh Hani, everyone is highly curious about that.

Indeed, Jung Somin who only had one work 'Bad guy' managed to digest her Oh Hani character so smoothly as she got chosen for the role. These guys worked really hard for their characters. A related drama personnel mentioned, "Kim Hyunjoong & Oh Hani never left their hands away from the scripts, and is always rehearsing for them. Especially the feeling to be put forth for the character, they really put in much meticulousness and thoughts as they act it out vividly".

Though the drama records low ratings as at 3.4%, but this is only the 4th episode. Looking at the rather high ratings this drama rakes in for its re-broadcasts, it is not difficult to spot the possibility whereby audiences will soon move their attention to it.

[10/09] SS501 exchange of Tweets

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting. Do not re-edit or hotlink the graphics.

UPDATE: I added the rest of the tweets for this Friday. This start of exchange made TripleS so ecstatic that trending for #weloveyouss501 spontaneously happened. It was at the top of the worldwide trending list for 4 to 5 hours - I think - and stayed in the list for 2 hours more.  

When I woke up this morning, I went on and watched the Naughty Kiss episode 3 & 4 with english subs. Every now and then I'd go and check on Twitter. Hyung Jun made the first tweet calling on his brothers. You don't know how happy I was when I saw Young Saeng replied. Looking at their tweets, I had the tear in my eye. It's been so long and if you follow other kpop idols Twitter accounts, as a TripleS you'd feel so sad that only two SS501 (Hyung Jun and Jung Min) got twitter accounts and don't post a lot and talk to each other. We've been waiting and when Young Saeng joined and Jung Min started chirping non-stop, Twitter has never been this much fun for TripleS.

Hyun Joong is currently filming the drama Playful Kiss.
Right after filming a scene, he had hurried to the next set without taking a break,
didn't show any sign of weariness or lethargy and continued with the filming.
Saw Hyun Joong had even stolen some time in-between filming to workout at the gym.
This led me to think that he works really hard.

His first time challenging a drama OST,
Hyun Joong had recorded a ballad, One MoreTime.
Amidst the hectic filming schedule, he had taken some time to go to the recording studio
and spent quite some hours to record the song.

The staff were worried about Hyun Joong's health because of this,
"Working in the middle of the night allows me to focus even better, that's very good...."
Hyun Joong had replied like this smilingly... much to the surprise of the staff.
And so, the staff too worked up the same persevering and never-say-die spirit like Hyun Joong,
and hope to work even harder to give him the support and help in every way in his filming.
