Korean actor-singer Kim Hyun Joong surprised fans when he relayed his desire to high-five all 3,000 concertgoers at his first Asia Fan Meeting in Singapore held last night. It was icing on the cake for everyone present when he selflessly continued that act of generosity and topped it up by presenting all attendees with a U:ZOOSIN t-shirt and brooch.
Anything for the fans, he says, and we're not even counting the dollars and cents (read: sense) involved in this exchange...
The "luckiest guy on earth" to be doing what he's doing right now, Hyun Joong's recent two showcases in Yokohama, Japan, sold out in mere minutes; tickets were balloted to pick 20,000 lucky concertgoers out of 60,000 applicants.
Rating his own performance thus far, the humble chap says he still has "a long way to go" to reach out to a global audience and "if there are 100 steps towards reaching my goal, I feel that I might be at my 10th step so far."
For someone whose mini-albums are accompanied by complicated dance choreography that gets "increasingly challenging" with each album, the 25-year-old assures he'll be dancing for "as long as my bones are still intact". Fans might even get to see him flaunt his guitar skills in future promotions and albums since he used to be a bass guitarist in school.
This charismatic poster boy of Korean beauty goods and preppy threads is as random as random gets. With a title album titled 'Lucky Guy', Hyun Joong shared a lesser-known tidbit about himself at his interview with xinmsn at Fairmont Hotel Singapore, and spoke about his superstitious habits.
