Pretty much you have seen this already from SS501's last guesting on KJE's Chocolate last year but I'm posting it anyway since it is super cute of them dancing to Fin KL's hit song. I noticed Leader is super focus in the dance.Oh well. Because way before his debut he knows the song and dance already. And you know why, right? Envy you, Lee Hyori.
'Idol opponents' SS501 Kim Hyun Joong and TVXQ Micky, from stage to theatre, will have a confrontation in self-esteem duel.
SS501 Kim Hyun Joong as the male lead in MBC's new drama 'Mischievous Kiss' (September 1 broadcast), and as an ex-member TVXQ, Micky Yoochun who, through KBS 2TV's new drama ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ (August 30 broadcast), becomes an actor Because of changes in management companies and unknown status of their respective groups, both will be using TV drama as a new starting point. Kim Hyun Joong and Micky Yoochun have been opponents in the music industry since the two belongs to SS501 and TVXQ which have been the nation's top boy bands; they have engaged in a friendly competition ever since debut.
Especially since both groups are five-members group, from the group members, to the popularity in korea and even thoughout Asia naturally become a good comparison for both.
The results of the two reappearing as actors, not singers, in a duel once again are closely watched. The commonalities between the two, both 'Mischievous Kiss' and 'Sungkyunkwan Scandal' are Kim Hyun Joong's and Micky Yoochun's first time as the male leads in the dramas; both targeting at the younger audience levels; same broadcast timing which made the competition between the two more intense.
Kim Hyun Joong possibly has more room over Micky Yoonchun in terms of being an actor, because of the Korean version of "Boys Over Flowers" in which he starred as JiHoo Sunbae, displayed his full acting skills and proved his star effect. But there are some problems as Kim Hyun Joong was pointed out on his pronunciation and unnatural expression in 'Boys Over Flowers'. So how Kim Hyun Joong is going to enact a different kind of role from that of 'Boys Over Flowers' is highly anticipated. If his role in Boys Over Flowers is synonymous with gentle, then his current role is one that is disinterested in anything; boring and cold. Detailed analysis of Japan and Taiwan version of the TV series, said that whether the TV series is popular depends on how much Kim Hyun Joong is able to assimulate the role.
see how Kim Hyun Joong shoulders a heavy burden. Micky Yoochun in 'Sungkyunkwan Scandal' also started off with a heavy responsibility. Although he has been acknowledged as a star in the music industry, Micky Yoochun is a rookie in the world of drama acting. As an actor, Micky Yoochun's gentle image in TVXQ will have a 180-degree change. His role, Lee Sun Joon, in the drama is a perfect guy with outstanding knowledge, financial status and looks.
TV fans of the original novel is divided into two, some were saying the choice to cast Micky Yoonchun in this drama is the best while other said the role is inconsistent. Facing his challenges as an actor for the first time, many are concerned with whether Micky Yoochun can perform up to expectation and display his acting skills to the fullest.
As opponents, previously in the music industry, now in the acting industry, Kim Hyun Joong and Micky Yoochun's new drama battle is highly anticipated.

If I do not work out, my body will feel uneasy.
Every Sunday, I play soccer.
From Monday to Saturday, I don't stop either..
I go to the gym.
In Japan, felt puzzled/embarassed?
There are Korean and Japanese words that have the same pronounciation but different meanings.
oh.. in Japanese I mixed up with "doryoku shimasu"(refers to work hard, putting in effort) and "nouryoku shimasu"(refers to ability)
Kept mixing it up as in Korean, working hard is pronounced as "noryoku"
right? (looking to side at staff for confirmation)
Mixing up the words, when I said "noryoku shimasu"(referring to work hard), I was taken as saying having the ability instead.
At that time, due to not knowing the difference in same pronounciation, was unable to communicate naturally.
ooh... when I first came to Japan, I said to the stylist, "Please give me mokkori (necklace in korean)."
But the stylist looked at me oddly..
Comparing Japanese and Korean language, it is really interesting.
Really surprised.. (can't really hear clearly..but the host was saying something like one will feel embarassed when said mokkori)
As the expression are different...
When I said I go the health.
In return, I would be asked, "From morning?"
I would reply "Of cause to go in the morning right"
In Korean, gym is call health but Japan it is different.
I felt the difference between the culture and language.
(Background voice) Well, seems like it has been hard for him while staying Japan.
Lastly, please leave a message for the audience.
Everyone who's watching "Kim Hyun Joong~Just the way he is~",
Although the time is short but are you satisfied with it?
I'll see you next time in Japan.
I have prepared an interesting talk and cool performance
Please wait and look forward to it
(Background voice) After saying thank you etc after the filming, he naturally arranged the chair... (sorry can't hear clearly.. but I think she's trying to say he was nice to do that)
==================================Sorry that it might be a bit hard to understand the differences in language... For "Mokkori" which means necklace in Korean... In Japanese.. it actually refers to men having a hard on (em.."standing up" u know what I mean eh?.. lol.. ) So you can imagine Hyun Joong saying that to the stylist.. XP For the "going to health". In Japanese, they call gym as gym. But when one say going to health and especially in the morning.. If I remember correctly...lol.. it more of refers to one going for "special kind of massage" ...^^
Wow! This event was last year but it was just recently uploaded just yesterday. This event was from the wine party Hotsun conducted with of course, our Hyun Joong last December. Geez! Our Korean friends are super lucky! Watch out! One of the fans are super funny!kekke
