SS501 Kim Hyun Joong received unrelenting attacks from Korea netizen due to his participation in former president Chun Doo Hwan's 80th birthday party which was not of his own will.

On the night of 18th, 6pm, at a wedding hall in Seoul Gangnam-go, former president Chun Doo Hwan's 80th birthday party, Kim Hyun Joong made a surprise appearance of over 10mins. It was said that he was there together with his management company, DSP CEO to greet former president Chun Doo Hwan.

According to one journalist who went to interview on that day, Kim Hyun Joong was indeed there together with his management company CEO and he did go infront of the former president couple to shake hand and greet them. When the former president secretary introduced Kim Hyun Joong to the former president couple, the former president Chun Doo Hwan said: "Ah~ So you are Kim Hyun Joong." and happily welcome Kim Hyun Joong.

Due to this and being despised by Korea netizen, Kim Hyun Joong revealed through SS501 official website: "Today I was a bit hurt, so I came to leave my message. I only went to attend my CEO's birthday, why did everybody have to say like this? Although I did attended the former president birthday party, what political power do I have?"

However, the netizen thought that Kim Hyun Joong wasn't careful when choosing to attend the birthday party. The netizens said: "As it was a sensitive occasion, he should be extra careful with his choice. It is too late to explain after the incident, if he was more careful in the first place, there won't be such news isn't it?"

Other than that, other netizens reprimanded: "Living in this society, it is inevitable that there might be some incident that might caused misunderstanding by others. However, if only when there is some misunderstanding and then saying that you will take in full responsibilities, then who will be responsible for those irresponsible person?"
(妃茵 note: Because Hyun Joong mentioned in his message that he will hold full responsibilities in his own name for this incident)

Towards the management company CEO who brought Kim Hyun Joong to attend the birthday party, his inconsiderate act also received bombardments from netizen. The netizens expressed, since Kim Hyun Joong is a well known artist, for the sake of Kim Hyun Joong, his CEO shouldn't bring him to attend the former president Chun Doo Hwan's birthday party which would cause the whole Korean's resentments.

DSP released their notice yesterday regarding this, as they have originally scheduled to have dinner with CEO Lee's to celebrate his birthday, before the dinner, since Kim Hyun Joong has some private schedule, CEO Lee accompanied him to go to the meeting place, on their way, CEO Lee received a phone call and as a last minute notice, he brought along Kim Hyun Joong to the former president birthday party location."

Certain netizen responded sarcastically to his company notice. "For the management company to do such move, it was really very inappropriate. They were really reckless to even bring their popular artist to such occasion. They should obviously knew that how bad the impression the whole Koreans have towards the former president Chun Doo Hwan."

HJ only went there because of the CEO and people judged him already. If only they waited for facts to be rought in first before they point their fingers.

Everything will be okay HJ, I believe in you.

altho m a joongbo fan and all, i understand the netizens intense overwhelming reactions on this incident. i think it was a bad decision in the part of the company to bring hj in the said event and hj, having his own mind and free will, we must also realize that he had also made a really bad choice being present in the event. as a joongbo fan, i do wish he'll overcome this and make better judgments in the future. it pains us also to see news of him lnking to bad politics. just my two cents... - charmed
