By "poor" you mean money wise, right? Then I would have to agree with you because the Japanese fans are supporting him with full force.

BTW, his single is still in the top 20 on the daily singles chart. Sweet, right? I'm loving it. Keep going towards your dream, HJ!

Some people said that HJ needs SS501 to success, so they jealous with him.
But number of people loving HJ is much bigger.
Don't care, Hyun Joong ah, go go.
