This album also the took the title of "Biggest Jump" on the chart, a huge signifier that his popularity has the potential to reach beyond Asia and to the rest of the world. 

This achievement has more significance as he has not directly promoted overseas yet. For a male soloist to be put on the billboard chart with a Korean album is an unprecedented achievement.

On his comeback performance on October 20th at M!CountDown, he manage to put himself at top 3 contenders against Brown Eyed Girls and Huh Gak, Although he didn't win this week, but the result is incredibly amazing, considered Brown Eyed Girls made their comeback around four weeks ago. Based on his achievement, we couldn't argue more that he is today's winner, well, at least for us Henecia ^^ Here's some screencaps of his today's achievement, Congratulation Kim Hyun Joong!

[News] Kim Hyun Joong (김현중) - Gives 90 degree bow to people

Re-post with full credits.

Kim Hyun Joong's 90 degree bow become hot topic today because of the photo from yesterday M!CountDown stage. Actually it's no news for us, since we already know how humble and respectful person he is. If you watch some videos from his previous works i.e Tony Moly the making CF and Baeksang Award 2009, the way he look up each person who works with him on the set and another artist (whether it's senior or his junior), you can see that he always initiates to bowing first, and sometimes we can see another in shock because of his deeply bows.  And if you watch today's MusicBank, he did it again after he gave his winning speech. Kim Hyun Joong is a beautiful person inside and out ^^. Here's the news.

Oppa/Dongsaeng MV-for shippers only! (HJ and SM)

Still waiting for my own copy of LUCKY album of HJ. But since I visit the thread regularly, for my daily dose of "happy vitamins" I saw some links by a shipper who made a fanvid for our oppa/dongsaeng couple using HJ's new songs. 

Anyway..this is purely for shippers delight, not the official music video of HJ's songs in Lucky album.
Nevertheless, these two songs really caught my attention and my taste in music, for they are really worth listening to. 

The songs are great. DAEBAK!

...and may I add, like shippers at the thread has also said, the songs reminded me of a certain person. who else?! care to guess..shippers?!!!:))

As I said  and as I titled this blog, THIS IS FOR SHIPPERS ONLY! STRICTLY FOR SHIPPERS.
I don't want to offend someone or be misinterpreted.
purely fan video.

Komowo ... ThePluiekiss@yt for inserting the Eng Sub.

Addicted to Kim Hyun Joong's Smiles-FS @Daegu for LUCKY album

Watched this video of  HJ while signing his new released album LUCKY and I am totally in trance with his addictive smiles. You can see how happy he was while doing this FS and he exuded a warm aura and feeling to the fans. 

Lucky fans indeed! Wish I was there, too. Anyway, still waiting patiently for my own Korean copy of LUCKY via a pre-order.

And as I was not present at this event, I made another batch of screen caps for me to feast my eyes on leader.

Lee Byung Hun to Return to TV?

Reports are out that Lee Byung Hun is being offered a role in the upcoming MBC drama “The King.” “The production of ‘The King’ is looking to score Lee Byung Hun,” drama officials said, according to local news agencies.
It is further reported that the star is showing interest in the drama, but will be tied up with other commitments in the meantime. He is scheduled to be overseas for the rest of the year to film G.I Joe 2.
“The King” is about the arranged marriage of a man and woman from great families, and how they build their love over misunderstandings and obstacles. Its director Lee Jae Kyu and writers Hong Jin Ah and Hong Ja Ram were the team behind 2008’s “Beethoven Virus.” “The King” is aiming for a 2012 premiere.

T.O.P and Yoon Eun Hye Cuddle Up for Calvin Klein Jeans

Couple photos of T.O.P and Yoon Eun Hye getting cozy for a new Calvin Klein Jeans campaign has been released on Oct. 19 through W Magazine. Taken at a hotel in New York City, as we previously reported, the special photo spread portrays T.O.P and Yoon Eun Hye as a couple deeply in love.
The photos that give off a modern yet sexy vibe are based on the theme of love, misunderstanding, and solitude, according to the magazine. Yoon Eun Hye is seen sporting the “Calvin Klein Jeans Stud Denim,” which puts strong emphasis on her sexy bodyline, while T.O.P is wearing the “Calvin Klein Jeans Black Denim” that has a modern and simple touch to it.
The full photo spread will be released on the November issue of W Magazine. Both celebrities are major sex symbols in the K-Pop industry, so it makes perfect sense to put T.O.P and Yoon Eun Hye together in the same commercial. Do they make a good couple?
