[Article] Hyun Joong to Retire at Age 30

Yesterday I mentioned that Hyun Joong was in some hotel in Samsung where he was having interview. This is just one of the interviews. Today several articles about his upcoming album is out. Here is one which i am shoving from Quainte501 much thanks to xiaochu. Btw, will post photo later as it's difficult when using iphone to post.


[News] Kim HyunJoong “Retire as Dance Singer at about 30 years old, Will Concurrently Play Band and Act..”

Credits : issue@issuedaily.com + (English Translation) xiaochu @ Quainte501.com


Singer cum actor Kim HyunJoong (25) revealed his final goal.

Kim HyunJoong said in an interview with the reporters on 10-Oct morning “As a dance singer, my biggest dream is to hold a last concert for free to the fans during my best moments on stage, at my peak of career, and then retire.”

He continued “Because I think that I cannot continue to be a dance singer when I become thirty-something, so I will return to find my fans with a different music style after that. I was originally specializing in bass, I learned other instruments too in order to make my own music, and also studied a lot about music, I thought of going into a band-style of music next time.”

He added again “I think that band music is the type of music that you are able to play until you die, I want to enjoy it while also doing acting.”

Meanwhile, Kim HyunJoong’s 2nd mini album’s title song ‘Lucky Guy’ is made up of band instruments, an exciting funky rock style song.

Kim HyunJoong will be making his comeback stage for ‘Lucky Guy’ through Mnet’s ‘M!Countdown’ on 20-Oct, and will continue his activities for about 3 weeks.

So, it means that SS501 only last until 5 years again from now??

Hyun Joong is always planning for the future. He sure has an active mind. Realising one's ambitions at an early age is the proof of a great man in any field.
To know when to retire and be able to do so at a time of your own choosing is a luxury and ultimate proof of one's success.
For one as active as Hyun Joong, one has to question whether he will be bored after retirement. Or, knowing Hyun Joong, then again, there will be no lack of excitement.
However his life turns out, I wish him the best and hope I will be there to witness it all. Should be a blast!

I should say 'no lack of plans and excitement"!

He's definitely not retiring at 30, reading the interview he was saying that we won't be the dancing singer soloist anymore but return in another form of performing on stage in a band.

Actually by then probably all these K-pop dancing singing style would be out. That's about 4 yrs more of it like every genre of music this is the usual way of how things go as even in US or UK.

He is being realistic in his plans. Dancing idols are for young ones. If they carry on as they turn 30, their competition are teen-age groups. Awkward definitely.

They have gone to a different level and they have seen this and acted accordingly.

SS501 will be back, perhaps only for a few songs.

Yeah I believe so too. SS501 may be back only for a few songs or one concert. Things have gone to a different level already for all of them.

However things turn out, I wish them the best as they gave me fun and memories to look back to.

A river where its water had ran its course cannot be the same river again.

For the water will go each way -downstream,upstream and seek its own level.

So it is the same for all of us, SS501 no exception.We evolve,we change.We are only as good as the last performance.

Yes,like the others one must just say thanks for the memories. It is better to let go and be remembered sweetly and lovingly.

Hyun Joong comes back with SS501 for some songs and 1 album in short time.
Then he should continue his own plan.

They have already evolved, and for them to get together now just to do the same things they used to do would not be considered a development. it's retrogression. They should just get together for a reunion concert once in the future and that's it. HJ has gotten way better to go back to doing back up for jung min and hyung jun. please. and it isn't his fault that as a solo artist he is way bigger than ss501 while the rest of the guys can never top the group's success as solo artists. let's face the facts.

Yeah face the facts and reality. Showbiz is about ultra good looks and excellent talent plus the X factor which draws millions of fans, that's how many fall behind and go into oblivion in a matter of time.

@10:04 Could you be anymore childish. Is it really necessary to put down the other members who have worked just as hard do you can build another member up. I bet you are the same person who will be complaining later about how everyone likes the bash Hyun Joong. Henecias are slowly destroying this fandom. I'm done

Agree with Anon@10:13PM that is face the facts and the reality of life. It's not that we are putting down the other members, we like them all but you just can't ignore reality and showbiz is most harsh.

PLEASE. I don't care if you are a Henecian or anti-fan. You are not even a Triple S. How much do you know about SS501 and Jung Min and Hyung Jun? If you don't, stop using their names anyhow just because you lack of words to fill in your sentence. None of the members is doing back up for anyone else. They are 5 unique different individuals. SS501 != 1 or 2 or 3 people.

10:04 Let's face the fact, you as well as any one can not know if any of them can top the group's success. And you also can not know how big it will be when they comeback. It's only 1/4 of their lives and I bet your life also, one advice for you, live long and see what happen!

There is so much hate towards Henecias these days. Oh well... whatever.

I'm glad he's thinking further into the future. He can't be an idol star forever. To some, he may be over his head with his singing and acting career, but I think he's doing just fine. Sometimes I get the feeling that some prefers for him to fail for whatever reason. I hope he gets to full fill all his dreams.

Aiya why get so worked up? Being at the top in showbiz is really about being the best in every aspect in such a competitive industry. And yes, for the rest which are the majority may still may rise to the top too though that's rather rare. That is reality and the facts of life too.
For all you know the one who actually last the longest in the K-showbiz maybe the least expected member of SS501.
FYI those who commented on facing the reality are not anti-fan or Triple S or Henecian.
