A Father's birthday message for Young Saeng

Credits to Young Saeng's Father's CyWorld + Baidu + (English translation) wonderrrgirl @ lovekimhyunjoong.com

Year 1986 November 3rd, 9:45PM
I heard the cry of light that could wake the world
unclothed and bare,
the first sound you made is a crying sound.

This crying sound is the language of happiness.
It's a sound that allows the world to be brightened by its light.

A prayer is the brightest in the world.
Receiving protection from the angels,
I hope you will always enjoy a smooth and safe journey
thus we named you "Young Saeng"

At the same time, I prayed that you will always remember this name.
Also, forever preserving it through love.....

With all my heart, I wish my most precious and beloved son a happy birthday

You're always alone and it's lonely
My son, who said "give me a younger brother!"
Now it seems just like your very wish (has come true).
With Triple S around
you will never be alone again!

Because of your love, you have also obtained love
I hope this will become something that you will remember forever.

Now my son's path ahead,
even though it is not smooth or glamorous
yet it is very long, very high and very deep.
It can guide you to the road of happiness and bliss.

Young Saeng!
Happy Birthday!

Today is a day that belongs to you
Because of my son, I am living very happily.

I love you.
My son!

Notes from translator:
About his name 'Young Saeng':
Perhaps some of you are aware that Korean names are actually derived from a list of hanja characters.

Young Saeng's Hanja name is: 永生(Yong-Sheng)

The meaning of his name implies "Always living" or "Always reviving again" where:
永= Forever

Thus that is what his dad meant when he said he named him Young Saeng, in hopes that he will always pick himself up and continue to move ahead on his path. ^.^

Aww... his dad is so sweet. Yes, I've heard my son utter the same request as what Young Saeng said to his father, "give me a younger brother!" In the Persona Making Story DVD, Young Saeng recalled one birthday that he celebrated all by himself. This year, I do hope he has celebrated his birthday surrounded with a lot of friends.

Aigoo~~^^ Just woke up and realized that my waist feels painful, it was such a long sleep in such a long while already ........

I finished my drama shooting finally yesterday ^^ It lasted for 4 months but, eummm, once again I feel myself feeling the much deep affection - which is to my surprise; after spending 4 months throughout, indeed it feels kinda saddening on having to leave now, mixed with both hateful feelings and anguish sorts

Since I just woke up only now, shall I go to memorize the mandarin song ???????????

To be busy is really not a hard thing for me, instead I'm happy, these days ^^ Why, because I'm able to do the things I want, to my hearts' content ...

Even until the day I leave my autograph on Mars as I shall ride on to my space shuttle at the NASA kk
At that time, I'll also carve you guys' name on there kk
If I can do that

...If I can't, I'll just leave my last will there for my kids to-come in the far-away future kk

What nonsense am I saying now after waking up huh kkkk
Anyway is everyone living positively ?????????

When I'm melancholic, I'll appear for once, and I don't even know if I'll give a Christmas present or not ...kk
Keep anticipating, won't be something peculiar, just wait for a bit

I won't be appearing on the television frequently these days already, TT
Don't say bye just because you can't see me

Study hard, help out around your hubby, and whatever things that you weren't able to give your boyfriend, just go ahead to get them now kk

I'll return soon with an awesome album, so do prepare for your million won already ........kkkkk

I should go to play some soccer right ~~starting tomorrow onwards

Have you enjoyed ???????????? Throughout the 4 months ??????? If so then, we'll continue to dream of our amazing future together, as we look up towards the same sky, ya

[05/11] KeyEast Official Notice regarding the Guangzhou Asian Games Fiasco

Below is the official response of KeyEast regarding the reports of Hyun Joong violating the secrecy clause for that Guangzhou Asian Games engagement. We'll wait for the translation but the main gist is that they have a formal approval to release such info.

Credits to hyun-joong.com + (English translation) wonderrrgirl @ LoveKimHyunJoong.com

Hello, This is Key East.

Today as reported that Kim Hyun Joong violated the contract for the Guang Zhou Asian Games Opening Ceremony, we wish to inform that this is not true. Regarding the article, as there are many concerns and inquiries from the fans, we wish to make an announcement about it.

About KeyEast releasing information about his presence at 16th Guang Zhou Asian Games Opening Ceremony, before the release of the information, we have received permission from the organization committee to go ahead. Right now, the organization committee's side express regret that there are some untruth in the contents of the notice, we are now working hard together to follow up with the matter.

As for the untruth in the article which caused some unrest among the fans, we seek your understanding of the matter. In future, we will work hard to ensure better news.

Thank you very much.


Kim Hyun Joong violated his contract for the ‘Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games’

Credits to VITALSIGN@allkpop

Kim Hyun Joong was previously reported to be participating in the opening ceremony for the 16th “Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games“ on November 12th, but it has recently been revealed that he violated his contract terms.

On November 5th, a news report by the Beijing Youth Daily included an interview with Chun Wei, the director for the opening ceremony. He stated, “We’ve been put in an extremely difficult situation due to the disclosure of Kim Hyun Joong participating in the opening ceremony. China has been keeping the names of our own singers under the utmost secrecy, so it’s difficult for us to understand why he went ahead and revealed it.”

He continued, “The point of the ceremony is to reveal who is singing the theme song on the day of the actual ceremony. We’re extremely shocked to hear that news of his participation have already been reported. He even signed the contract agreeing to keep the information a secret. Kim Hyun Joong violated the contract and it’s very unfortunate.”

Yet despite his disappointment, the director went on to express his understanding for the singer. ”The opening ceremony will hold a 100,000 member audience. Since it will also be broadcast live through TV, over a billion people will be watching Kim Hyun Joong. He probably thought of this as an honor and wanted to get it known. I understand his actions and will not ask him to take responsibility for it.”

Why is it that it is his fault? Shouldn't it be the person who leaked the info to the media? From what I read before it was an agency from China that mentioned it. Oh well, the moment Hyun Joong stepped back in Korea after his quick trip in China, whispers of a singing engagement was already abuzz.

Before Anna Core joined CNN in 2008, she was working for Australia's Nine-Network. She had once hosted informational programmes like [The Seven Network], [Today Tonight] etc, and was also the manager of Nine-Network in LA.

The reason to why CNN is showing such hot interest for [Playful Kiss] could be much credited to the number of viewers of 520K in just two days after releasing its first episode on the net.

Youtube has also collaborated with the ViiKii community to provide translations in each country's language.

Apart from these, the [Playful Kiss Special] has also recorded the highest number of comments been left in the [Entertainment] category amongst all Youtube videos; and it seems like this record will not be broken for the moment.

Song Byung-jun CEO of Group Eight also left his sentiments for the Youtube platform, "After uploading our Youtube special version, we have thus come to know about the potential of this global rivalry that is in store through the number of views and comments left by viewers all around the world", "By overcoming the barrier of different cultures and every thing, we are able to communicate with the fans amongst one another, and thus we could re-confirm the real-time responses in each region around the globe; it's really extremely efficient through a manner like this".

Whilst on the other hand, Lee Won-jin CEO of Google Korea also replied, "This Youtube is the biggest online video-sharing site in the entire world which also release the discographies of famous international singers at first hand. And with our special Youtube version this time round, our domestic video contents businesses have also aroused large interest in taking their developments onto Youtube. Youtube is open 24-7, which is why it is so welcomed by our domestic production people, and we hope it will be further welcomed as well".
