Kim Hyun Joong to represent Korea at the ‘Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games’ opening ceremony

On November 3rd, a spokesperson from KeyEast Entertainment revealed that Kim Hyun Joong was invited to sing for the ‘Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games‘ opening ceremonies. He was also bestowed the honor to be Korea’s representative.

The KeyEast Entertainment rep stated, “On November 12th, Kim Hyun Joong will sing the ‘Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games‘ official theme song, “Sunshine Again” at the opening ceremony as Korea’s representative.”

Reportedly, an official with the ‘Asian Games Organization Committee’ sent a formal invitation to Kim Hyun Joong, asking if he could lend his vocals for “Sunshine Again” near the end of September. At the time, Kim Hyun Joong was occupied with filming “Playful Kiss“; however, as soon as the series wrapped up, he departed for Beijing in secret to prepare for the opening ceremony.

Director Park Sung Jin, who extended the invitation, stated, “The council desired to host a creative and high-quality ceremony; they invited Kim Hyun Joong due to his continental fame in Asia. He will take the stage with 4 representative singers from China before the climatic torch lighting ceremony, signifying harmony between the different Asian nations.” - Allkpop

"without HB we hardly know HJ as of now"
that's very insulting. You just insulted KHJ, SS501 & all his fans who walked with him since the very start. HJ was not known as shillang of HB but a guy whose personality is unique he stands out.Where he is now are all due to his perseverance, extreme hard work & dedication to his craft.dont go around telling us who helped who the most.because AFAIK, it was mostly due to KHJ that people were introduced to WGM.
Their awareness of the man behind Jihoo(BOF), BSJ (PK), Leader (SS501) lead them to watch WGM & in the process learned to appreciate HB. It is mostly due to HIS popularity and that is a FACT.
If a Triple S, a Perfect or an ordinary fan of KHJ come across that post of yours, hell hath no fury.

karla said...

We should all try to get along here. I think she didn't mean to be offensive. In her defense, KHJ did say that ss501 was not doing so well thats why he signed up for the show. And because of wgm he was then able to land the BOF gig..where ss501 also made a guest appearence. Then he became a success and was in almost every photoshoot and cf possible...which in turn landed him the lead role of playful kiss. But you also have to remember for those that watched BOF and Playful Kiss before WGM...they were then introduced to Hwangbo. Everybody wins. Why do we have to get all mad? This stuff is exactly why there probably is no communication because people are so sensitive. Everybody just be happy for both of them. DAMN. It's too early to get riled up.

@anonymous how is it a FACT that due to his popularity that people begin to appreciate him. Tell me, what was ss501 doing right before and during WGM?? I watched WGM because of Hwangbo..and then I fell for Kim hyun Joong. Your comment was just as offensive as the other comment. How does saying that make it better?
You have now just offended Hwangbo fans everywhere.

meme =p said...

Hey guys, can't we all be friends!? Let's just agree that they both were exposed positively. They gained great memories and had a once in a lifetime experience. They walked a way grateful for each other and now are both successful in their every right! Let's just be happy for them.

We're all here because were fans...whether we are triple S or die hard Hwangbo fans! Let's not bash each other!

LvKprogram said...

Totally agreed with Karla.
SH is place where fans can enjoy both HB & HJ’s complishment and sharing individual readers thoughts.

We really need to thank to MBC-WGM, to cast HB & HJ to there show. I never knew who HB & HJ was till WGM. Way I see it...HB & HJ became well known around world because of the WGM.

I do remember HJ did say that "SS501 was not doing so well thats why he signed up for the show".

Life is too precious to worry or fight about comment made by individual Anon made. So readers…just chill and enjoy and have fun!

TO THE WORLD!!!

Hell hath no fury like a PERFECT scorned. Goodness my experience with anyone willing to fly out to meet someone per chance, or some one hiding in the bushes for fan cams is that their dedication will know no bounds. I loosely associate myself, foremostly, as a Hyunnie, and I was already griping at Maknae's playful jibes at HJ last month- imagine someone infinitely hardcore? :shudder: ↲With that said, Congrats to HJ for this opportunity! My sister L.L. automatically chimed Buin! Beijing! Lol and here I sincerely was under the impression HJ made that Beijing trip for black bean noodles (I kid, of course, but it is HJ so I've given up on logic and am sufficient on come-what-may.) lol. ↲I've seriously got to send a thank you note to KeyEast for their good care of him. Does any one know the address?

You have now just offended KHJ fans eveywhere..........

Hailey said...

@anonymous wow you guys are amazing. Look at you guys after Meme asked you guys to respect each other you guys go mouthing off at each other. Let's drop it. Or this will go on and on. This has always been a place with great atmosphere and now the positive mood has been ruined. We love them both!!

Oh, no, not again! I hate when this comes up. Fans arguing who made who more famous, who owes the other more. Fans getting offended and offending others in turn. Let's just stop, please, okay?
The only real FACT is that they were on WGM and they both got even more popular than they already were. Some fans watched WGM for HJ and learned to love HB, and some fans watched WGM for HB and learned to love HJ, and some didn't know either and watched WGM and learned to love both. There's no point trying to tally who got more fans. And does it matter? We're all fans of Joongbo, whether you're more of a HJ fan or a HB fan.
Please try not to be so sensitive. I think the comment meant that without WGM, we would know HJ as SS501's Leader and maybe future actor, but not as Shillang, just as we would know HB as ex-Chakra leader and General, but not as Buin. Let's just be thankful that we got to know those sides of them, which made all of us love them more. ^^

it's because when leader something like kiss someone for a job everybody gets mad but hwangbo can do whatever she wants and its ok. thats stupid. stupid. stupid.

Ssangchudream said...

@Anon up there: To be fair, Hwangbo hasn't go around smooching anyone yet. Maybe we will all throw a bitchfit too when that happen 8D.

But yes, I can understand your frustration. We do have a sort of double standard when it comes to JB b/c we tend to be harder on HJ. But I think that has to do with the fact that most of us are females and thus automatically more biased toward Hwangbo.

With that said, HJ stans like you really don't help to further understanding when you just declare things as "stupid" =/

ICE said...

Oh come on, no point arguing. Just be happy that both of them are equally famous now. So just pray that their loves to each other is even deeper. Segyero!!!!!!!!!!

@anon#8,So it's obvious you don't like HB, so why don't you tell us what irked you that HB has done? besides get smiles from KHJ during WGM.

Anonymous said...

2010 Asian Games! How weird is that? I had completely forgotten. Yes, they had said they would meet again in four years at the London Olympics, Hwangbo had said 4 years and KHJ said, in 3 years, let's start with the Asian games. OMG fate! Oh how I wish she had agreed with KHJ on 3 years. But then fate shows it's face whenever it wants, lol.
