[Article & Vid] Hyun Joong Took the Challenge to Eat Hot Chili in Okinawa

Just saw this article on AllKPop and I am looking forward to see the clip where Hyun Joong is eating hot chili pepper. Since we all know that Hyun Joong loves to eat chili I think that he enjoyed this show much.

Singer Kim Hyun Joong, who recently released his debut album in Japan, guest-featured on a Japanese television program to show off his entertainment skills.

According to Oricon, the leading Japanese music authority, the singer was able to experience a bit of Okinawa — a city he’s always wanted to visit. Through Fuji TV‘s ‘Sakigake! Music Ranking Eight‘, Kim Hyun Joong finally received a chance to indirectly experience the culture of Okinawa.

The program gave him the opportunity to taste different foods unique to Okinawa, including one of Okinawa’s indigenous hot chili peppers. Fans grew curious to see how well he would handle the heat, as the singer enjoys spicy food in his everyday life.

A representative from the program remarked, “We launched this program in order to see side of celebrities that are hard to see on other programs.”

Whether or not Kim Hyun Joong was able to successfully stomach the chili will be revealed in the February 8th episode of ‘Sakigake! Music Ranking Eight’.

He may as well come on down to Okinawa. Those places he ate at are just like some of the restaurants and izakayas they have here (⌒▽⌒).
