[Article] Hyun Joong Talks About Trainee Days

Another interesting article from last night's broadcast of Golden Fishery with Hyun Joong as guest.

I really think that Hyun Joong and the rest of SS501 members really have a good relationship with DSP president. They all say good things about him despite many knows how strict he is. I think also that Hyun Joong and the members are really grateful of their root despite what others think.

Check article below to know what Hyun Joong said last night.

On June 8th, Kim Hyun Joong guested on MBC’s “Knee-Drop Guru” and talked about his training period before his debut with SS501.

He began by describing the strict environment of his former label, DSP Media: “It’s a company that makes you fend for yourself. As a trainee, I’d clean up the recording room in the morning and run 20 laps around the field. Every day, they’d add another lap until I reached 40. We also had to eat fast.”

He continued, “When we were being trained in singing, eight of us would be in one small room and had to sing together. It was hard to concentrate on what you were singing.”

MC Kang Ho Dong commented, “Your CEO at the time is known for being quite the scary man.” Kim Hyun Joong replied, “He was hard, but we said everything we wanted to. Even if he said, ‘What do you mean you need dancers, it’s just extra expenses,’ we would still say that we needed dancer hyungs and he’d listen and comply. He was like a father, and he would call me son. He thought cutely of me.”

When asked about SS501’s rivals at the time of their debut, he mused, “We were half confident in our ability to stand on equal footing with TVXQ. We thought of sneakily going from behind and then bursting out in front. It wasn’t necessarily a plan, but just the atmosphere at the time. The public naturally set it up like that for us.”

Reflecting back to his debut on June 8th, 2005, Kim Hyun Joong concluded, “After our first broadcast, I teared up. I think it’s because of that sense of achievement and because I remembered everything we had gone through as trainees.”

my two fave groups SS501 and TVfXQ!!!!

i know that this blog is purely SS501 but since leader mentioned the other group that i also love i cannot help but compare the 2: as a trainee, the members of these two groups endured a lot of hardships, they have talents, they have looks, they all persevered and... and... these two groups are interlinked in most ways YS-JJ-KHJ; KHJ-JYJ; KKJ-TVXQ; KKJ-YS-KHJ-JYY/TVXQ

the members of both group hang out with each other
