Leader of SS501, Kim Hyun Joong is currently under a stressful dilemma with the end of his contract quickly approaching.
Kim Hyun Joong’s contract with DSP Entertainment will officially end on June 8th. There are rumors that he will separate from the other SS501 members and pursue an acting career. However, there are also opposing rumors that all the members of SS501 and the company have unofficially renewed the contract.
Furthermore, it is well known that Kim Hyun Joong is best friends with TVXQ’s Jaejoong. An unknown source said that there was a possibility that Kim Hyun Joong will enter Jaejoong, Micky, and Junsu’s current company. In fact, it’s been said that Hyun Joong and Jaejoong are currently living together, so rumors has it that the two best friends are currently cautiously contemplating about Kim Hyun Joong’s future.
Also, Kim Hyun Joong recently met with Bae Yong Joon. Netizens are now wondering if this meeting had anything to do with Hyun Joong’s contract. However, a representative of Bae Yong Joon clarified the situation, saying, “The meeting was strictly personal.”
Another source claimed that Kim Hyun Joong will leave DSP Entertainment, but will continue to be a part of SS501 and participate in their promotions and activities. This is similar to what the members of Shinhwa are doing right now. god also had a period when the members were in two different companies.
DSP Entertainment is currently trying to compromise with Kim Hyun Joong by saying that they will be fully supportive of his acting career while he is still a part of SS501.
There are too many rumors and speculation to know what Kim Hyun Joong will decide. We will have to wait until June for his final decisions!
As much as I hate going into gossip, there are some ground to where this rumor came from.. don't you guys think?
From the past news I posted a few months ago, (Let me link you guys to it once I find it) DSP is one of the companies listed that have unfair contracts...
Recently there have been stars that leave their own companies to move into others, or even creating their own. Whether it was because of unfair contracts, finding their own selves, etc... leaving companies is a big thing... Well for me that is, because it's just a crazy idea for me still. (I mean if we're living at this moment a decade ago, I think many would be like, omg that's impossible to be even talking about leaving your company esp if you're an idol o.o!!)
When I first heard that Hyunjoong has been meeting with Yonsama, I was all-giggly because I remember Lettuce Sonata. xD~ But with this news, I realize that maybe, Yonsama himself is advising Hyunjoong on what he will do after his contract expires. I don't think it's on acting though ^^;; You know what, I actually had this thought that maybe BYJ wanted to have HJ under his wing.. o.o;; I know.. crazy.. but rumors like this makes one think about its endless possibilities. ^^;;
JaeChunSu case also gives a good ground on this suspicion. In my opinion, if I was Jaejoong, I would tell Hyunjoong about how I'm feeling being in a contract that treats me well, you know what I mean? They live together and I don't think they would avoid talking about stuff like that.
As far as I know, JaeChunSu are fairing well even without SM. Jae is on a Japanese drama, Yoochun got 2 dramas going on, Junsu just released his first ever single. On the other side of the spectrum, my hubby Changmin is on Paradise Ranch and Yunho just had a US tour and a drama. All of them are pretty okay as far as where their career is going. The only difference is.. they are not overworked... and then all members to me exude this happiness.... Not the happiness I see when they're on stage, because I know they're always happy when they're on stage.. But it's a different kind of happiness. The one that comes with contentment, and self-satisfaction. Right now, I see them taking their time knowing themselves, and they look... happy.
Do I think they will remain as DBSK, maybe not today, but in the future? Yes.
Did I hate the fact that they're not together as 5? Yes.
Do I think they're growing as the artists they wish to be? No doubt about it.
Again.. There are endless possibilities. Whatever happens, I hope he will go to the choice that makes him the happiest. :) Rumor or not, this news just made me write a very very long comment which is like a Ssangchu Heaven record!! xD
Anyways, what do you guys think?
