The Boys Over Flowers star and solo singer talks skincare, music, and acting.
1.He hearts the Philippines. Even though this ambassador for The Face Shop came from an Asian tour for the brand (Manila was his last stop), he looked fresh and radiant at the press conference the morning after his mall live show. Through an interpreter, he said he is energized by the love and warm welcome from his Pinoy fans.
2.He appreciates his fans’ efforts. He graciously hugged his teary-eyed fan Patria Ragasa, who turned 74 on the day of the press con, and her daughter Maria Rosario Ragasa. For her mom, the younger Ragasa won the bid for his autographed sports shorts (P100,000 from a minimum bid of P10,000). The money went to The Face Shop's auction beneficiary, the Abiertas House of Friendship.
3.For him, personality trumps physical beauty. When Candy asked what makeup look he likes on girls, he said he prefers to focus on inner beauty.
4. He thinks it's time for Pinoy guys to start taking better care of their skin. He recommends all of The Face Shop products, which he religiously uses.
5. He loves music and acting equally. Asked which one he'd rather pursue in the future, he couldn’t answer because he said it was like asking him whom he loves more: his mom or his dad?
SS501‘s Kim Hyun Joong has finally unveiled his album jacket photo for his second mini-album comeback, “Lucky“!
Dressed in a vintage casual look, Kim Hyun Joong made a ‘dandy’ transformation that all comes together for a stylish and charming concept. His mini-album kicks off with a rock ‘n’ roll track titled “Do You Like That“, which features a danceable beat and a powerful arrangement of band instruments. There are a total of five tracks, including his title track, “Lucky”, a traditional ballad titled “I’m Your Man“, and a sweet love song titled “U“.
His title track itself features a rhythmical electric guitar and brass rock band sounds. It’s categorized as an up-tempo American punk rock song, something that Kim Hyun Joong has always wanted to try musically. To make it possible, he’s enlisted the help of the members of Day Break and Common Ground.
Kim Hyunjoong will officially be returning to the music scene with his 2nd mini-album "Lucky" after releasing his debut mini-album "Break Down" in the first half of the year. On October 4th, Kim Hyunjoong released his jacket cover to "Lucky," revealing his transformations from a bad guy to a gambler-like look.
For his 2nd mini-album "Lucky," Kim Hyunjoong has shed the dark image and gone for a rough, yet attractive transformation. He introduces a chic look with his fatal charm.
Kim Hyunjoong will promote his title track "Lucky Guy," a song that features a rhythmic electric guitar and a bass that will sound similar to an American funk rock.
