This saddens me because I don't think Kim Hyun Joong is narcissist at all. In my country, the word "narcissist" has only a very negative meaning. It is not nice at all and no one wants to be called a narcissist. Self-confidence is fine, but narcissism is not.
Narcissism denotes egoism, vanity, conceit or simple selfishness.I agree with you that it is not good to be described as someone who is narcissistic and i don't think that HJ is being described as one.What it is saying is that among the idols of today, HJ is a good candidate of someone who would be able to act as or portray the role of a narcissistic person judging by how he portrayed the character of Baek Seung Jo in PK. I think in this sense, it is a good thing because he is seen as a good actor. so all good...:Dnanet @ lovekimhyunjoong.com
HE IS VERY BEAUTIFUL AND GENEROUS MAN, NOT NARCISSIST .IS SPECIAL ACTOR,WITH A LOT TALENT,AND IN ART HE CAN GIVE LIFE FOR SPECIAL CHARACTERS.
he does strike me as narcissistic. i thought that it was just a cultural trait, ie how koreans express their confidence (and i dont mean anything derogatory by this). but apparently, he is already deemed narcissistic by his fellow koreans.
Confidence =/= NarcissismHe is confident in his looks, and he doesn't say "Oh, of course I'm not!" because he knows it isn't true. He said before that he thought he "looked weird", but since people consider him very handsome, he think he is handsome too. Anyone who is handsome and says they know they are is coined as narcissistic, which is silly. Being confident is different than being narcissistic.But since they called Kim Soo Hyun narcissist for his role as Hwon as well, I'm gonna go it being because of stage presence and his role as Baek Seung Jo.
Yeah like if he was a narcissist in real life why he would be respected so much.. Even bae yong jun has vouched for his humbleness.. We know what happens when a star is a narcissist.. And everyone knows his personality after wgm so no one is going to take this seriously.. I wouldn't worry too much about this giving him bad publicity coz people already know how he is.. Sometimes Korean shows are just so dramatic..
They didn't say Hyun Joong is a narcissist. They said he could play the part of Moon Embraces the Sun Lee Hwon. They were not referring to his real personality.Wow. It really shocks me anyone thinks he is a narcissist, especially someone visiting this site. Whoever up there said the Koreans think he is one really needs to read the translation of this video and next time it might be best not generalize because these polls are not representative of all Koreans in the first place.
thank u so much... i was so much hurt... after reading this thing.... thank u .... kumava...
Oh, just saw that Kathy posted the translation so I hope that puts this whole narcissist thing to rest.
