Kim Hyun Joong Releases Surprise Single for Fans

Although June 6th is Kim Hyun Joong’s birthday, it was actually the artist who gave a present to his fans.

The singer surprised everyone on his birthday by releasing a single entitled, “The Reason I Live” (aka “Why I’m Alive”). The lovely ballad expresses his appreciation to the fans which have supported him so faithfully over the years.

Although fans had been expecting the release of the singer’s “Tonight” album, most of them were surprised and grateful for the singer’s single released for his birthday.

The singer will perform the song for the first time in public on June 8th at a fan meeting in Seoul. June 8th is also the anniversary of the group ss501, of which Kim Hyun Joong is the leader. Several of the members have made comments lately which hint at a reunion, so some fans are wondering if the rest of the band members will be making a surprise visit at the “2013 KHJ Show- Party People,” since it coincides with the group’s anniversary as well.

The release of the single comes on the heels of a special event KHJ held in Tokyo, where he spent approximately 6 hours shaking the hands of over 8,000 fans. Reports say the singer even showed concern for his fans standing outside in the hot sun and asked them to be escorted inside. Time after time, the talented singer and actor has expressed his gratitude to his fans and continues to show his appreciation by these special events and surprises. Along with his many talents, his humility and true appreciation for his fans continue to earn him more support and respect from Kpop fans around the globe.

We wish Kim Hyun Joong a very happy birthday and many years of continued success!

In the episode of SBS’s Barefoot Friends broadcast on May 12, the cast visited Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Their mission was to act as gendong, or Indonesian porters, in order to earn their daily wage.
Kim Hyun Joong earned the largest amount of money and other members of the cast drew laughter by trying to curry favor with him.
Yoon Si Yoon was criticized by other cast members when he said, “Actually, at first I wasn’t interested in joining the cast of Barefoot Friends but changed my mind when I heard Kim Hyun Joong was going to be on the show.” Uee used flattery on Kim, saying, “My ideal type has been changed since the show began: Kim is my ideal man now.”

4minute’s HyunA To Be Released From Hospital

Almost a week after collapsing due to dehydration and a very high fever, HyunA is set to be released from the hospital on Sunday, May 12th. 
Fans were extremely worried when news broke that HyunA had been hospitalized. It turns out her fever and dehydration were caused by the stress of her busy schedule. In a statement released by her managers at Cube Entertainment, it was announced that she will begin her discharge from the hospital on Sunday but will require continued treatment and several more days of rest in order to fully recover.
HyunA was a popular member of the band Wonder Girls before she joined her current group 4minute. She shot to international fame when she was featured in the music video for PSY’s mega-hit “Gangnam Style.”
While she continues to recover, the rest of the group members will have to continue their schedule without HyunA. After a successful comeback, they have been busy promoting their new song “What’s Your Name?” The song is currently in the Top 10 on the Billboard Magazine’s Kpop Chart. 
We’re happy to hear that HyunA has improved and wish her a speedy recovery as she continues to recuperate… fighting!
