SS501’s Kim Hyung Joon is rising as ‘Asia’s multi-entertainer’ after being cast for the leading male role in the musical “Caffeine.”

“Caffeine” has already enjoyed much recognition due to the involvement of its producer, actor Kang Ji Hwan. Yet the positive reception lies substantially within the musical’s witty and realistic comparisons between the romance of a man and a woman to coffee and wine. “Caffeine” has become particularly popular with audiences in their 20’s and 30’s.

Production company SH CREATIVE WORKS revealed, “Kim Hyung Joon will be performing in season 2 of ‘Caffeine’ with the support of Kang Ji Hwan.’”

Kim Hyung Joon begins singing rehearsals this week, and will perform by the end of 2010. He will also be going through physical training in order to keep up his stamina for the 100-minute-long performance.

Kim Hyung Joon stated, “This is my first musical and I feel that it’s an excellent blend of acting and singing. I’m also very nervous and excited as it is a work that has received much praise by musical critics. I’ll use my six years of experience as a background, and be working with the mindset of a rookie actor in order to put my passion and effort into doing my best. I want not only my fans, but my seniors as well to be proud of me.”

The producers of the musical praised Kim Hyung Joon, saying, “He’s shown great stage presence through various concerts as a singer. He’s also got exceptional dancing and singing skills, with handsome looks to boot. Kim Hyung Joon basically has everything a musical actor needs. Although it hasn’t been that long since practice has begun, we’ve fallen in love with his sincerity and passion.”

Kim Hyung Joon recently held his first solo fan-meeting in Singapore with 3,000 fans in attendance, and is receiving the courting calls of many Asian media companies.

“Caffeine” will begin on November 24th.

-last paragraph that talks about ratings, all other paragraphs are about a storytelling-

Though this drama has already entered its 2nd latter half part, but due to the presence of KBS 'Fugitive' and SBS 'My girlfriend is gumiho', its ratings haven't been able to exceed the 10% stage as usual. Despite so, due to the broadcast of baseball match last 30th September, it began its broadcast 1 hour later, with that it has about an hour late of resting time, which was why eventually it managed to achieve 7.5% of its personal highest ratings (accoding to AGB Nilson Media Research center). This figure is actually twice the time higher than the episode on 29th September. Even if for now as the voices of netizens ring around the ears of the production team, they ask for the much support of everyone right till the end of this drama's telecast.

Because the degree of openness in Taiwan is wider, Park Jung Min was asked by the Taiwanese media if he will accept any bed scenes. He smiled and said, " Because recently I have been working out, so I am very confident with the upper part and lower part of my body!"

The host fears that he might not understand the question well, so he asked again to confirm, " You are confident with the lower part of your body?"

Park Jung Min does not seem to know which part he is talking about, and innocently replied " YES! "

As long as it is for the sake of producing a good work it is okay, and he has confidence with his back, therefore even when asked if he will accept fully-naked back scenes, he readily says he can accept.

[Not only does Park Jung Min continuously use Chinese language to greet everyone, 
he also tries his best to use Chinese language to reply as much as he can]

Park Jung Min was asked by the media which Taiwanese female artiste does he know.
He smiled and said, " Barbie Hsu(Da S), Rainie Yang, Chai Jie (Chai Zhi Bing), Chai Jie, Chai Jie..."

The media asked if there is a bed scene, who will be his choice of partner? He started playing with the words with the media, laughing and said, " I will choose "no.4" Chai Jie" and even shouted towards Chai Jie, " I WILL WORK HARD! " which caused everyone to be fully impressed with his humor and interesting reply.

Even though Park Jung Min has been to Taiwan several times, but this particular time feels different. Even though he came alone, in order to let the fans feel his effort, he continuously tried to use Chinese language to reply whenever he could. At the moment, he can now already use Japanese Language fully when meeting with his fans and could express himself fully. Recently, he started working hard in learning Chinese language, hence he has already learnt quite a bit of vocabulary.

The host joked and said, "You can understand alot of singular words, but can you understand the questions that was being asked?" 

Park Jung Min's face is full of suspicion (in mischievous manner), " I don't know~", causing everyone to laugh again.
