SS501 Is Unbreakable!


With everything going on these days, Triple S are all going through a tough and challenging time. So I made a little vid (thanks to Gab for the song suggestion). This is perfect for SS501. What with all the rumors and information going around, there is no definite answer as to what will happen to our boys' future. But one thing is for sure, they will NOT disband. I am holding on to their words, not just Leader's but also the other members. Let me share this message from Leader (taken from their 2008 Japan Tour Grateful Days DVD) as translated by ss501fighting: Hyun Joong said, "Young Saeng, Jung Min, Kyu Jong and Hyung Jun, all this time, it has not been just 1 person, as long as there is one missing person, it would not be SS501, because we're always together, there are times when we fight. without u guys, i'm unable to stand on this stage alone. Because i'm Leader, i have to work hard, Let's work hard together. SS501 Forever as 1".

This is what we need to believe. Don't entertain doubts in your head, because SS501 needs us more than ever now. Triple S are always there to protect SS501, and today is no exception. We gotta keep the faith, because SS501's love for each other and for Triple S, is UNBREAKABLE!

Kim Hyung Jun Pays His Last Respects To Park Yong Ha

Hyung Jun went with his brother Ki Bum from UKISS to pay their last respects for Maknae's friend, Korean singer/actor Park Yong Ha. Yong Ha was found dead in his room where he committed suicide. Condolences to Yong Ha's family.

[News] SS5o1 Kim Hyung Jun “ cannot believe.. such a good hyung…”
SS501 Member Kim Hyung Jun sobbed on Park Yong Ha's wake.

Kim Hyung Jun attended the wake with his brother Kim Ki Bum member of UKISS at Seoul Funeral Parlour after receiving the news of the death of Park Yong Ha in the morning on 30 June 2010.

In a tele-interview with nocut news, Kim Hyung Jun said while sobbing “ cannot believe, no idea what has happened”, “ why is it like that…”

“We were supposed to meet yesterday but was unable to, we were supposed to meet today” Kim Hyung Jun said while tears are dropping.

When SS501 was having activities in Japan, Kim Hyung Jun maintained a close relationship with Park Yong Ha who was also having activities in Japan as a Singer. Upon returning to Korea, Kim Hyung Jun & Park Yong Ha still maintained a close relationship just like real brothers.

Park Yong Ha has been a guest on “Kim Hyung Jun’s MusicHigh” in the morning 3am where Kim Hyung Jun is the DJ, promising to attend as guest, expressing loyalty.

Kim Hyung Jun expressed gratefully “ Yong Ha Hyung who has never attended any radio show before, attended the radio show that I hosted at 3am.”

What Really Happened Behind The Scenes?

To everyone who are looking for answers, here's something to think about. Read it carefully. I'm not sure if this is confirmed or not, I'll leave you guys to decide. I have to warn you though, "DO NOT BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ." I merely posted this up because it can shed some light in some dark areas. Like why Jung Min and Baby were the ones who attended Golden Melody Awards, and other stuff. You can think about it or merely brush it off as hearsay, it's your call. You can turn it over round and round in your head and analyze it, or you can just simply wait, until an official statement is issued. But no matter what, I still BELIEVE in SS501. Best for us to wait for more official news.

Words that Jung Min had Personally Told TWTS
2010.06.29 23:04

Credits: HK TS’ blog + (english trans) happiebb / LOVEKIMHYUNJOONG.com

Mal and Baby had first signed with DSP.
It was only at the 5th anniversary
that the five learnt that DSP didn’t want to sign Kyu.
There’s no way SS501 could continue.
Hyun Joong requested that DSP sign with Kyu first before his signing the contract.
DSP refused.
Hyun Joong recommended that Kyu goes to YG.
……
So turned out everyone had to sign with different companies
and come next year,
the various companies to collaborate for them to release an album.
YS and Kyu are currently in Japan.
YS is negotiating the OST of some drama,
Kyu is in discussion with YG.
Mal had said this (same thing) to TS on the plane three times
that the five of them will release an album next year,
The reason why Hyun Joong signs with another company…
IS TO PROTECT THE OTHER FOUR, TO PROTECT SS501, AND TO PROTECT THE FANS.
Coz DSP refused to sign with Kyu…
so Hyun Joong’s helping Kyu to sign with YG,
and Hyun Joong wanted DSP to sign with Kyu by threatening to sign with another agency.
Mal and Baby had initially thought everyone would be renewing their contracts,
so they had gone on ahead and signed first.
Mal further said…. they would be separated for this year…
but next year, they will continue to work together through different companies
YS also said something like that….
that the five of them will continue on like this year after year…
the interpretation is that they would be working together again next year.
Coz so long as they’re missing just one member, that signifies the splitting up of SS501…
So Hyun Joong surfaced first to face everything.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Again, all we can do is wait for the official statement from those involved. To those of you who have been judging Leader and to those who have been hurling bad comments at him, you guys should be apologizing. Never, not once, did I doubt Hyun Joong's loyalty to SS501. No amount of fame, money or whatever can buy his integrity. Now if this article is true, then he's a HERO. He protected Kyu and his group. He protected Triple S too. He didn't have a choice. "Hyun Joong surfaced first to face everything." He was willing to face all insults, all anger, all judgment. To spare his brothers. That's the mark of a true Leader. If he didn't do what he did, SS501 will no longer exist. Now I'll leave you with your thoughts. As for me, my respect and love for Hyun Joong has grown 501% times more.

Kim Hyun Joong Leaves DSP, But SS501 Will NOT Disband!

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_vu9uqzISxb0/TCoYfQjqCRI/AAAAAAAALtg/F71-lkFpcmc/s1600/keyeast.jpg

SS501 Will Continue Despite Kim Hyun-joong Departing DSP Entertainment

All eyes have been on the frontman of SS501, Kim Hyun Joong, over the end of his contract with DSP Entertainment. Final confirmation arrived via many major news outlets early June 29th stating that Kim has indeed decided to leave DSP Entertainment for Keyeast Entertainment. Keyeast is where many well-known actors are signed under, including Bae Yong-joon (whom Kim Hyun-joong was sighted with before the official decision was made), Park Ye-jin, Bong Tae-gyoo, Lee Bo-young, Lee Na-young, and Hwanhee. Many have speculated that this decision will push him further into the acting realm.

Just because Kim has made his decision doesn't put the bigger issue to rest: what will happen to SS501? The main possible options were that the group would break up, the group would continue without their leader, or that they would continue their group activities with Kim signed under a different agency. Another related issue is that if Kim does indeed leave the group, will there be a new member to replace him?

Amid these speculations, Kim spoke out to Sports Korea saying that SS501 will not be breaking up. He said that although the remaining members have yet to make their decision regarding their contract with DSP, there are no plans at present for the group coming to an end. He said that whether he leaves and is replaced, or stays as the group's leader, the group as a whole will go on. DSP reported that as the other members are currently on vacation, their final decisions will not be made until they return.

Here's a statement from DSP Thailand... this is an email sent by DSP Thailand to TS official member.

Remember what Hyun Joong said in X-Concert, don't believe in negative comments, just believe in SS501. It won't be the end, it will be a new start. I guess Hyun Joong knew that weeks later, many TS will be blaming him and pointing fingers at him. He gave that assurance to all Triple S. Many listened and held his statement to their hearts, those are the real Triple S who choose to believe instead of doubt. Those who didn't believe him are now bitter and hurt. Even worse, they hate Leader. I don't think it's fair to judge Hyun Joong. Because we don't know the full story. As for me, I am holding on to his word, because I trust him. And I support him. When he says SS501 won't disband, SS501 won't disband. As of now, we are still waiting for the decision of the rest of the members. While we wait, let's open our hearts and minds and accept the changes that will happen with love. Our boys are becoming more mature now, and with this maturity comes growth. What's important is that they are still 5 AS 1! Remember, even though they're not in the same agency anymore, SS501 will continue. They're not going anywhere, as well as the friendship, brotherhood, and love they have for each other. So Triple S, hang in there and BELIEVE in SS501!

Triple S... Wait, Trust And Believe!

TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE ASKING ME WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO SS501, I WOULD ADVICE YOU GUYS TO JUST WAIT FOR THE OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM DSP ENTERTAINMENT. WHAT MAKES ME MAD ARE THOSE NEWS TIDBITS THAT ARE OUT OF CONTROL, WHICH I'M SURE YOU'VE ALL READ ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. I CHOOSE NOT TO POST THEM HERE BECAUSE I DON'T THINK I NEED TO.

PLEASE DON'T BELIEVE EVERY SINGLE COMMENT YOU READ. REMEMBER, NEWS ARE ALSO WRITTEN BY PEOPLE. AND ALTHOUGH THERE CAN BE TRUTH THERE, SOMETIMES THEY ADD UNNECESSARY COMMENTS THAT ARE TOTALLY OUT OF LINE AND UNTRUE! SO BEFORE YOU SPREAD THESE THOUGHTS AND STATEMENTS THAT YOU READ IN SOME NEWS BLOG, THINK 501 TIMES FIRST. DON'T GO AROUND CAUSING PANIC. LET'S WAIT FOR THE OFFICIAL STATEMENT ABOUT THE WHOLE GROUP, NOT JUST 1, BUT OF ALL 5 MEMBERS OF SS501!

IF YOU'VE FOLLOWED SS501 THROUGH THE YEARS, THEN I'M SURE YOU'VE SEEN THEIR BOND AS BROTHERS.
NO ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY CAN BREAK THAT BOND. IF YOU'RE A TRUE TRIPLE S, YOU WILL STILL BELIEVE AND SUPPORT SS501 NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS!

Before heading to the awards show, the duo went online first and left a message to Warner Music Group official plurk. The message (as translated by ode@blog): "Hello? This is SS501's JungMin, HyungJun. We are now at our hotel and just finished our interview. We will now leave soon to go and meet with everyone. Taiwan's green peas princesses, wait for us!!!! See you later~~~^^" So thoughtful of them! Just a simple gesture, but very much appreciated by TS Taiwan!

Philippine Star Article On Kim Hyun Joong



MANILA, Philippines - Without a doubt, K-Pop has swept and captured the hearts of many Filipino fans.

If you are wondering who the teenage group, tweens and even the twenty somethings are adoring these days, chances are they’ll tell you it’s the K-Pop groups.

-Omitted unrelated part-

The K-Pop infatuation continued last week when Filipino fans rapturously welcomed another popular Korean boy band group BEAST and heartthrob Kim Hyun Joong of the hugely popular Korean soap Boys over Flowers (BoF).

Hyun Joong and BEAST performed alongside with Pinoy pop groups, Pop Girls and XLR8 in a benefit concert for young unwed mothers billed K-Pop Meets P-Pop last Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum. Part of the concert proceeds went to the Abiertas House of Friendship (AHF), a non-government organization that supports women with children out of wedlock. In an interview, Hyun Joong and Beast said this advocacy means a lot to them and that’s why they decided to give part of the proceeds to the organization.

The crowd at the concert was a mix of young Filipino and Korean fans who were armed with glowsticks, fanboards and of course, their cameras. Omitted ~ unrelate

Everytime a music video BEASE performed their hits Special, Bad Girl, Mystery, Oasis, EasyShock. A "kilig" moment at the concert was when Beast members sang “Oasis” while throwing away long-stemmed red roses to the audience. During the interview portion, Beast thanked their Filipino fans for the outpour of love and support and promised to come back again to the Philippines. Meanwhile, the P-pop counterparts XLR8 and P-Pop also gave outstanding performances proving that Filipinos is at par with the Korean idols. But the night belonged to the very handsome Hyun Joong.

Filipino fans more than heartily welcomed Hyun Joong when he arrived at the NAIA last week. Michelle, 14, is impressed at Hyun Joong’s finely-chiseled looks, flawless skin and soulful eyes. But more than that, she likes how talented he was as an actor, singer and dancer. “Aside from that, he is very gentlemanly and refined. He is really gorgeous,” she said.

At the concert, fans were cheering and chanting his name non-stop. When he finally came onstage, the crowd grew wild and loud with screaming. Hyun Joong performed three songs including the hit Please be nice to me.

He became popular in the Philippines via the hit 2009 Korean drama series Boys over Flowers, where he plays the character of Yoo Ji Hoo, the charismatic gentleman of the F4 group. Hyun Joong is also the leader of the SS501 which produced popular hits like Because I’m Stupid and Making A Lover, which are both included in the OST of BOF.

At the concert, Hyun Joong was dapper in an all-white suit and gamely answered all questions. Pinoy fans were touched by his sincerity and enthusiasm to familiarize himself with the country. When he was here, he granted a lot of interviews, held a fanmeet and guested in a noontime show. He said he wanted to get to know and eventually gain Filipino friends here.

Hyun Joong endeared himself more to the fans when he spoke in Tagalog, especially when he said "Gusto ko kayo Makilala", "Kamusta Kayo", "Mahal ko Kayo" and "Maraming salamat po". Saying these phrases made the crowd went wild again. Asked if it he could like a Pinay and eventually have a girlfriend, Hyun Joong said he wants to get to know that somebody first and be friends and see where it would lead. He also said he was fascinated by the Philippines for its fresh air and wonderful nature spots. Hyun Joong also said in a previous interview that he is single at the moment. Asked what qualities he likes in a girl, Hyun Joong said he wants someone who could make him laugh and willing to be friends first.

Another highlight of the concert was when the audience greeted him a happy birthday with matching cake to boot. Hyun Joong celebrated his 25th birthday last June 6. K-Pop die-hard fans Gelli de Belen and Candy Pangilinan brought the cake for him at the stage. Fans felt how much Hyun Joong appreciated the sweet gesture and they want him to come back to the Philippines soon.

He was also asked if he knew there was a SS501 fan club here in Manila and he said he was surprised to learn there was and promised he would include Manila in their itinerary when their band tours Asia. The group’s official fan club in the country, Triple S Philippines were in full force at the concert.

The most applauded or ear-drum breaking moment (due to the squealing) was when he sang his popular song Please be nice to me, looking so suave and well, cool in doing the dance moves.

If anything, the concert proved how much Pinoy fans truly adore Hyun Joong.

He promised his fans that he would come back to the country and try the food here and other stuff and also expressed his intention to do a drama. The night ended with Hyun Joong, the Beast, XL8R and Pop Girls singing Michael Jackson’s Heal the World with young students.

-------------------------------------
Well, what else can I say? Everybody present in the concert last June 19 served as witnesses to this. The whole crowd was wild for Hyun Joong, shouting and chanting his name even until the very end of the show. He was indeed the highlight of the concert. And very well deserves all the adulation, not only because of his talent, but because of his amazingly good and generous heart. I hope Leader knows how much we Filipinos love him.

Hyung Jun & Jung Min Off To Taiwan For Golden Melody Awards

We know that Jung Min and Hyung Jun (aka tom & jerry) are attending the Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan. When I saw these pics of Hyung Jun at Incheon Airport, the first thing that came to mind, and the first word I said, was "WOW!" Our maknae looks damn fine! I've gotten used to his hair, with one-sided bangs, but seeing him like this, I gotta say I'm loving his hair like this. Pulled back suits him better, don't you think? I wonder if Jung Min flew together with him. I guess we'll see later when more photos and videos come out.

Kim Hyun Joong MYX Greeting



I believe Leader said, "Hi, I'm Kim Hyun Joong. You're watching MYX, your choice, your music." Hahaha, his English is soooo cute! Hope MYX will air a Kim Hyun Joong SPECIAL featuring his concert and stay here in the Philippines.

Heaps of thanks to LYN for sending my this video clip! Love YA Lyn!!!

-----------------------------------------------------

NEWS ON KHJ: Hyun Joong arrived in Seoul this morning at 6am. He left Cebu at around 1am. He looks good! Apparently, fans from Cebu saw him off to the airport. And fans in Seoul waited really early in the airport to meet him. So sweet of them. Leader looks fresh, maybe from a nap on the plane? Kekeke.



In Cebu, he stayed first in Mactan Isla Resort & Spa, because a friend of his invited him and then on to Plantation Bay. Our first guess was Plantation Bay actually, coz we know Leader wants to stay away from the beach because he's afraid of sharks. Hahaha. Have you seen Plantation Bay? It's grand! Just seeing the pictures, the whole place looks inviting. It's a great place to relax and enjoy! I particularly love the cottages settled on the water's edge. Look at the pictures below and imagine Leader in one of them. Kekeke. Thanks to ate Gerri for the info!
