Trans by / @OnlyKHJtimes

MC: This person is KHJ, who debuted as a solo (artist) in Japan.

He made a couple of surprise visits to CD shops in Tokyo, yet so many fans came to see him. His visits were a secret, and only Mezamashi TV followed him.

We will show you our exclusive video about him later.

MC: There’re big surprise events in Shibuya and Ginza yesterday.

A Hanryu (Hallyu) star, KHJ debuted as a solo the other day in Japan and made a surprise appearance in front of fans.

Girl: I saw him. He was handsome. Fufufufufu ~chego (good!)~

VO: The person whom the fans came to see was KHJ, who debuted as a solo the other day in Japan. He visited Shibuya and Ginza to promote his debut CD.

VO: His debut CD won 2nd spot on the Oricon daily ranking.

His visit was planned secretly but about 200 fans got the information from Twitter or etc (and gathered) in Shibuya.

VO: He was welcomed with great cheers by fans and left his autograph on his panel.

These fans who could shake hands with him were very lucky, as his stay was just only 1 min and 21 secs. He left like a storm and headed to Ginza.

KHJ: I feel that Japanese fans are very enthusiastic and their feelings (zeal/enthusiasm) to cheer me is big.

In fact KHJ has lived in Japan some years ago.

His favorite dishes since then…?

KHJ: The dishes I often eat are gyu-don, ramen, soba, and curry rice.

I especially like the curry and rice at CoCo Ichi (it’s the name of the shop).

He seems to like Japanese fast-food.

Then what is his favorite Japanese word?

KHJ: “Agepoyo”

Since I’ve debuted in Japan, everyday is “agepoyo” for me.

VO: His next visit with such an “agepoyo” feeling was a CD shop in Ginza.

There were double the number of fans compared with at Shibuya; about 500 agepoyo fans welcomed him.

VO: He’s called “rida” because he’s been a leader of SS501, which debuted in Korea, in 2005. After the event, so many fans were waiting for him to come out.

Fan1: “He is so handsome and cute and I’m really moved (that I could) meet him.

Fan2: “I really love him. He is the aunt’s (middle-aged women’s) longing (adoration).”

KHJ: I think I have to work harder (to meet the expectations from fans) in the future.

I also want to thank all the fans for coming to see me.

VO: KHJ had a stage on Mezamashi Live last summer and he had been very popular since then. There weren’t any announcement, but about 700 fans had gathered to see him.

Please re-post with full credits!

On the afternoon of January 28th, “Kim Hyun Joong’s Aeon TopValu HeatFact Secret Event” was held at Aeon LakeTown shopping mall in Koshigaya, Saitama. 200 participants were selected among 43,652 people and they had a wonderful time there.

Kim Hyun Joong gained popularity as a result of being the famous Korean male group SS501’s leader and successfully made his Japan debut on January 25th. The atmosphere reached its climax during the live broadcast of Kim Hyun Joong’s Japan debut single “Kiss Kiss” performance recording! Kim Hyun Joong made an appearance at the event in the midst of loud cheers!

He conveyed his greetings – “Hello everyone, I’m Kim Hyun Joong.”

“We’re all Lucky Guy.” – he used his smiling face to calm the fans down.


MC: “Japan debut single ‘Kiss Kiss’ performance recording went well, what kind of mood were you in at the moment you performed it?

KHJ: “I was thinking ‘If I had someone to love, I would like to say words like these and carry out such activities too.’ during the filming of it.”

MC: “This song is also the theme song of ‘AEON Kizuna Valentine’, how do you feel after watching the CM?”

KHJ: “There’s an old woman dancing behind (me), she surprised me because she danced very well. It made me feel vexed and wonder if I could still dance to ‘Break Down’ when I reached old age.” – his serious reply made everyone burst into laughter.

Furthermore, “When I reach old age, maybe there will be people watching over me from heaven.” (a great laugh) “It’s actually good like that. Only looking at me anyway~” – entering Kim Hyun Joong’s world again!! Everyone in the venue was laughing!

MC: “Was it your first time meeting the people in the CM during the filming of it?”

KHJ: “(Yes,) We met each other for the first time. I’ve watched the video recorded when my dancers taught them how to dance on the day before the actual filming. Watching them try to remember dance moves within a day made me think I should work hard too.” – talking about things that happened during the filming of it.


A message board with fans’ comments (on AEON’s Facebook page?) was made. A fan was chosen to give it to Kim Hyun Joong.

@tzeyin28: The paragraph above is briefly translated. I don’t really understand the Chinese translation~

CHINESE TRANSLATION: “在AEON的FACEBOOK的页面中有汇集了从歌迷那里收集来的关于【温暖金贤重】的回忆的留言板,并进行了【AEON FACEBOOK PAGE HEARTFUL留言】,留言OBJET赠与仪式,让通过抽选选出的1名饭将此留言板送给了金贤重。”

During the Q & A section, Kim Hyun Joong personally chose 3 questions and replied them himself.

Q: “Did you eat ‘Rice with Beef’ and ‘Ramen’ during your stay in Japan?”

A: “Of course I did. I eat them every day.”

Q: “What kind of drama would you like to play a role in?”

A: “I want to play the role of ‘Roronoa Zoro’ in the manga ‘One Piece’.”

Q: “How did you feel after making a guest appearance on ‘Music Station’?”

A: “I didn’t feel nervous, it felt great to be able to attend such a show myself, I felt uneasy because everything went well for me who just made my debut.” – expressing his feelings about it.

After that, a fansign event was held. Kim Hyun Joong signed autographs for his fans one by one in a serious manner and interacted with his fans and the event ended happily.

His last words

“I made a successful debut in Japan thanks to everyone’s help. I will carry out activities in Japan in early February and return to Korea. You may be a tad bit disappointed because I’m not going to star in any dramas for a period of time, however I really want to greet everyone with a new drama.” – telling us how he felt.

“Thanks everyone” – he waved at his fans politely and (you can tell) he’s full of style and confidence as a ‘Star’ by looking at his gesture.

Kim Hyun Joong is not only famous in the Korean music industry, but also enjoys very high popularity in countries like Japan and America. Gradually opening up his ‘leader world’!! Becoming more and more difficult to forget!!

[News] Kim Hyun Joong Sells 100,000 Albums within First Week of Japanese Release


Kim Hyun Joong sold 100,000 copies of his Japanese debut single, "KISS KISS/Lucky Guy," which was released only a week ago on January 25. This puts him in second place on Oricon's Weekly Chart. Kim Hyun Joong already had a pretty big fan base in Japan from his SS501 days and dramas "Boys Over Flowers" and "Playful Kiss."

For a Korean artist to rank within top 3 of the Oricon chart, sell 100,000 copies within a week, and be the most-selling foreign artist on the day of album release with his debut single in Japan is an impressive record to hold. As a result, many Japanese entertainment industry officials are paying close attention to Kim Hyun Joong.

Kim Hyun Joong has performed on NHK's "Music Japan," Fuji TV's "Sakigake Ongaku Banzuke," and TV Asahi's "Music Station" and has been continually asked to make an appearance on several other shows. He was also featured on TBS's news program to represent himself as well as K-Pop in Japan.

An official from Universal Records, the company in charge of Kim Hyun Joong's Japanese career, commented, "The Japanese fans are very excited to see Kim Hyun Joong. His album sales is off the charts, and the evaluation of him as an artist is also very impressive. We are expecting to see more growth in the album sales."

Kim Hyun Joong is holding "Premium Live 2012" concert in Yokohama Arena on February 5 to celebrate his successful debut and meet his fans.
