It’s just been revealed that SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong enrolled in a college earlier this year.
In March, the idol-turned-actor was accepted into Chungwoon University as a stage production business major. Fans were surprised by this new info, since Kim Hyun Joong previously dropped out of high school to fulfill his dreams as a musician. After putting his education on hold, he decided to enroll in the university as part of the class of 2011.
On May 26th, a representative for his agency stated, “Kim Hyun Joong became a late college student earlier this year and is juggling both his education and music production. He is working hard to have his comeback as a singer as well, in addition to continuing his studies as a student.”
Kim Hyun Joong is scheduled to have his singing comeback in June, and is holding a showcase on June 7th.

Admitted into University quietly this year.
The fact that singer cum actor Kim HyunJoong was admitted into a University earlier this year was made known late.
Kim HyunJoong was admitted to Performance Planning and Administration Department of ChungWoon University located in ChungNam HongSung, in March this year. He quit high school in order to focus on his career in music when he was in high school. Kim HyunJoong, who neglected his studies in the past, started as a freshman in University late.
Kim HyunJoong, who started school quietly, recently finished his mid-terms, handling both his studies and work concurrently. Kim HyunJoong’s agency said “Even during the preparations for his solo album, he diligently prepared for his exams too. Even though the distance between our studio and the University is rather far but in order to hunt 2 rabbits at one go, he gave up some sleeping time.”
Kim HyunJoong was admitted into ChungWoon University through Professor’s recommendation. Besides his activities as a singer, he received recognition for his experience through various dramas he has acted. The representative added “He himself didn’t want the news that on his school admission to be spread. He wishes to study normally with the other students in school.”
Kim HyunJoong will have a showcase on 7-June in JangChoong Stadium, Jonggu, Seoul, making his first step as a solo singer.
And I remember seeing this pix below last October
[in October 2010 there was news that Hyun Joong would be attending Chung Woon University at Hong Sung this year .] .
maybe this is the prof who gave recommendations? :
I don't understand a single word..still, it makes me smile just seeing the both of them very comfortable towards each other. So Min massaging Hyun Joong! Well... I think they are more closer than what meets the eye compare to other actors who play lead roles in a drama. Massaging a co actor is rather intimate..don't you think? kekeke
On May 23rd, KeyEast Ceo,Phil Shin, tweeted the news about Kim Hyun Joong appearing on global social media sites for the very first time. Fans have been tweeting, emailing, and contacting the singer's agency in every way possible to persuade them to make a Twitter account for the SS501 member. Well, the fan club and album is on its way,but there was still no Twitter in sight!

Playful Kiss was shown in Korea 2010 and before the year was over, it also ended. Then came the You Tube episodes where fans from all over the world watched it and PK became a hit in the Internet.
I for one watched PK January this year and finished all the episodes including the YT versions and had blogged all my thoughts about it so many times. Now that it will soon air in our local network, talk about Playful Kiss is everywhere.
So here I am, joining in again in making noise about Playful Kiss. There seems to be many videos yet I have to post. A good thing the timing is very right for recent news about the fan meet which was held in Osaka Japan May 03, 2011 was all over the news and different threads here in the web.
It became like an energy booster for me and for all the PK lovers who can't wait to watch it again (and again) in television. And another major event is coming this June for our leader Ki m Hyun Joong, who is one of the main reasons why many go gaga over PK. The anticipated launching of his solo album will be on June 07. A great coincidence for the premier of PK on GMA on the 30th May. I know that lots of fans who are waiting will be thrilled for these two events.
Anyway, for more goodies, here are videos of PK..NG (not good) Cut.
Same day, but two different dates. ^^

suehan: Do you remember a young handsome man who accompanied BYJ in a Ferrari to the sashimi restaurant in Busan? Apparently he was Kim Hyun Joong. Hahaha.. I know, I know. Why couldn’t Korean sisters recognize him? Probably, they were full of joy over YJ. Here are their autographs which were posted in the sashimi restaurant. Hyun Joong dated them correctly, April 17, 2011, but not YJ. YJ dated it as April 15, 2011.
Another fan’s account in Busan. (Apr 17th, 2011)

With lost hope from tweets about YJ’s whereabouts last night, I went to a cod soup restaurant which I visit once or twice a week with my fellow fan. I took the heavy “A Journey in Search of Korea’s Beauty” which I have been taking every time I visited Seoul.
I even had a lukewarm reaction to my regular restaurant owner’s joking. I had no taste of that delicious food.
Can’t we seen him, sis? Let’s go home after the meal.
We gave up our clever, empty dream and decided to leave the restaurant. I felt better as I gave up.
We walked down the hill comfortably after we gave up everything. Then.. there was a Ferrari down the hill. It was a Ferrari! Isn’t a Ferrari, sis? I ran down the street towards a Ferrari trying to look for a parking space. YJ placed his arm on an opened window because of his hopeless parking situation and his nice, soft hairs were scattered by the wind like in the romance cartoons. Am I dreaming? I dared to approach to him and watch him from the corner. YJ had a short conversation with a parking lot attendant. Then he thought for a short period of time, left his car on the street, got out from the driver seat (leaving his passenger inside), and walked inside of the restaurant. Did he grow more? He looked tall. When he disappeared, then, I looked at the one in the passenger seat. Woman? It was a tall, handsome, young man.
YJ came out from the restaurant, got on his car, and parked his car with the guide. Looking at the car zigzagging, in front of his car, I was speechless. We interfered his parking. I don’t think YJ didn’t realize that two women who interfered his parking were his fans. I didn’t think we’re going to have a chance to see him zigzagging, having trouble parking his car backwards. He parked his car too close to the potted plant. I wondered how he could get out from his car because the space (between his car and the potted plant) was very small. He opened the door, hit the potted plant a little, and got out from his car nicely. He went inside the restaurant with his company in the passenger seat, who was as handsome as entertainers. We couldn’t talk to him, but we were just looking at his back.
Here are the comments which I posted on boonseongbae’s posting.
It was a very nice moment shaking hands with him, getting his autograph and having eye contact with him. But it was more impressive looking at him going inside then returning to his car for parking problems, and getting on his car again. He looked like he was in his twenties. I was so happy for having an accidental meeting at the same time and place. While we were waiting for him, parking attendants approached us. Yonsama? No.. We said, “Yes”, but It seemed like they didn’t believe us. No.. Did Yonsama drive down here without security guards? We said that it was possible. They said that he was really handsome.
He was wearing beige semi-baggy pants, tight shirts with his sleeves folded halfway on top of t-shirts, vest or cardigan with half sleeves, a beige backpack on his shoulder and orange transparent sunglasses. I looked at him while he signed his autograph in his car; his face was really sharp and handsome. When I saw him in real life, I’ve never thought he has a fair face. But his face was really fair without blemishes like being under hundreds of reflectors. He was really cute when he talked to himself while signing his autograph.
One more thing, but I might get thrown stones. He might have lost weight. His hip had disappeared. I’m wondering where his duck-like hips have gone. Oh, well.. He was attractively tall and looked sharp.
Please be notified that the group buying for Kim Hyun Joong’s first solo album, “Break Down” has now begun.
We will go ahead this project together with our old partner, Synnara Record at this time again.
