When Today Passes... Till We Meet Again, Kim Hyun Joong

I never thought this post would be the hardest post for me to write... I think I probably shed so much tears while writing this. I knew this day would be sad. I never thought this would be so sad. I am so sad... (excuse me while I wipe my tears) 

Today, Kim Hyun Joong will be leaving for his mandatory military service. I have imagined this day to come way way back. But finally, this is coming, and I feel sad. 

I know Hyun Joong will not read this, but I'll say it anyway. Hyun Joong, the past year have been hard. But please hang on. You are entering a new phase in your life, so stay strong. There will always be a rainbow after the rain. Things will get better. And us, your fans will be here. 

You are not perfect. Just like we aren't. Your circumstances right now are now ideal. But after all, I will always remember you, not because of your circumstances, but because of your beautiful smile. After all, I fell in love with it at first anyway. And I hope, you never forget to do that. You deserve to be loved. Never mind whatever people say. 

To my fellow fans, if you are reading this, it means you stayed. Thank you. Thank you for the prosperous years together, For better or for worse, as they say. It wasn't easy isnt it? Who ever thought fan girling Hyun Joong could be a roller coaster? 

Thank you Kim Hyun Joong. Bye for now... I promise you I will be here when you get back. I promise you, you will always be my first love.

(Article) Kim Hyun Joong 김현중 Recieves A Dangerous Assignment

Credit: http://www.kdramastars.com

While all Korean males, age 18 to 35, must serve two years of mandatory military duty, some assignments are more dangerous than others. Singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong has just received one of the most dangerous assignments, patrolling the Korean Demilitarized Zone or DMZ. That's the strip of land that separates North and South Korea.

of the most heavily militarized borders in the world. Despite an armistice, North Korea has launched more than two-dozen attacks at the border since the 1950s. The latest took place on October 10, 2014 when North Korean forces fired anti-aircraft rounds at propaganda balloons launched from Paju, a city in the Gyeonggi Province, just south of the border. South Korean military returned fire after giving a warning.

Kim entered the army on May 12 and as of June 18 has completed his basic training. And he has been assigned to Paju, the site of many U.S. and Korean army bases. Kim reports to Paju on June 19 and will serve there with the border patrol.
He heads to Paju without the chance to see friends and family again or to confer in person with his lawyers.

Enlisted men might normally be granted leave to visit family and friends after they complete basic training and attend a graduation ceremony. However soldiers are not being allowed to leave their bases due to the MERS scare, which has so far infected over 150 people in Korea and killed 19. His friends and family could also not attend his graduation ceremony.

His inability to leave base may also complicate his ongoing legal battles with his ex-girlfriend identified only as Choi. She recently sued him for $1.44 million. She is claiming that an ialleged ncidence of physical abuse in 2014 caused her to miscarry a pregnancy. His legal team says that she has not provided evidence of that pregnancy or a miscarriage.

His legal team is preparing a countersuit for approximately $1 million claiming that her allegations amount to defamation of character.

After Choi accused Kim of assault, then dropped the charges, the couple reunited briefly before breaking up. Choi is currently pregnant with the singer's child and has cited a September due date. Kim Hyun Joong asked to delay his enlistment to deal with these personal issues but that leave was denied.

Kim Hyun Joong's military service ends on February 11, 2017. Kim was last seen in the drama "Inspiring Generation" and is best known for his roles in "Playful Kiss" and "Boys Over Flowers."

Kim Hyun Joong has entered the army.

On May 12, Kim Hyun Joong entered the Recruit Training Center of Army Division 30 in Goyang-si. Although many reporteres and hundreds of fans waited to see him off, Kim Hyun Joong chose to quietly enlist with no press conference.

Ahead of his enlistment, Kim Hyun Joong′s agency stated that he will not be having a special event due to the current situation. His agency rep told Newsen following the enlistment, "Like the other soldiers, Kim Hyun Joong entered the base in his car. He′s waiting for the admnission ceremony that will take place at 2PM (KST). We′re sorry that he couldn′t say good bye to the fans that came to see him."

Before the admission ceremony, Kim Hyun Joong exchanged conversation with Bae Yong Jun and his agency staff. Like the other recruits, Kim Hyun Joong wore a hat and comfortable clothing when he participated in the admission ceremony. He had a dark expression on his face, but calmly carried out the ceremony. The agency staff attended the ceremony and stayed to see him off until the very end.

Kim Hyun Joong enlisted in the army amidst legal battes with his ex-girlfriend. Kim Hyun Joong′s ex-girlfriend, Choi, sued Kim Hyun Joong in August of 2014 for assault, but later dropped the case in September. However, Choi filed a new suit in April to receive a 1.6 billion won compensation for psychological and mental damage that resulted from the pregnancy. Kim Hyun Joong′s side is currently preparing to take legal action.

Kim Hyun Joong will receive five weeks of basic training before he gets stationed. He will be discharged on February 11, 2017.

(Translation) Kim Hyun Joong's Message at HYUN-JOONG.COM: This is Kim HyunJoong

Hello. This is Kim HyunJoong.
I couldn’t get an opportunity to greet (you) comfortably, and in the end had to say farewell.
The truth is, I am very sorry during this period.
Because I am a public figure, I wasn’t able to pour out my heart but to keep it under my breath, I blame myself for not being considerate enough and mature while I spent these tough times.
That’s why I am very worried how to express entirely my apologies and regrets of farewell.
In my heart, for all of you fans…No
To all of you fans, I have two mixed feelings.
Sorriness, Thankfulness…
Many of you supported me mentally during times of confusion. On the parts where I couldn’t talk about, you have prejudged and constantly believe in me, which gave me confidence. How will I ever repay you…
Also, to those who are hurt and angry because of me, I don’t know how I can apologise, I feel like I am leaving with a whole lot of debt in my arms.
Even though all the men born in this country has to serve military, now that it is my turn (to enter), deep in my heart I feel jittery. I thought I am always working hard and living so intensely… but actually the day prior (to enlistment), I felt that I am weak…
However, in the upcoming 2 years, I believe that this is an opportunity for me to reborn again.
As a man, as an entertainer, I will grow up and return as a responsible person of the society.
In the (past) one years’ time, I fully felt that…I have been living well and was protected with more caution and from a heart-warming position, by my family, friends, colleagues, people whom I’m thankful to, and fans…
After I finish my duties at the National Defense, I will return as a better person, if not the best, for all of you who believed in me more than I do. On the day when I return, I promise that I will smile and greet (you), with that I end my letter.

Was not expecting to see photos of his enlistment at all since he requested to enter the army quietly. I guess media can't help it.
