My morning drive today was difficult and stressful. A thick fog had set in while I slept, and I was running late for work. I had to drive blind for a bit while my car slowly gathered heat from the engine to clear the moisture from my windows. As I drove down the freeway, I could not see ahead like I can on a clear day and I nearly missed my exit. When I finally saw the signs pointing to my daily destination, it was almost too late to get over in the lane to get off the freeway. I made it just barely and arrived at work right on time, on the dot, not a second to waste. That feeling of urgency and blindness made me think of the turmoil of emotions I have been experiencing ever since Kim Hyun Joong finished up his Phantasm World Tour and went on a hiatus from the spotlight in October of this year. I have been missing him so desperately, and I have no signs pointing to the future ahead. It is a feeling of fear and restlessness, straining for any sign of proof that the future I am waiting for will indeed materialize. It leaves a lump in my throat the size of a boulder, and I struggle to hold back my tears.
Kim Hyun Joong fans are furious after Yahoo Buzz Asia Awards Fiasco. Statement was released via Yahoo Buzz Weibo that Kim Hyun Joong would appear in a Video Message. At the Ceremony, no Video Message, and Awards were 'split' for the Title of Most Popular Asian Idol. YBA Issued an Apology to Henecia Too Little, Too Late
Imagine my horror as I began reading the Twitter Updates this afternoon about Yahoo Asia Buzz Awards after the conclusion of the ceremony. I am at work, and have no way to view the awards during that time, but was eagerly awaiting news on Twitter. As the tweets came rolling in expressing disappointment and anger, I was very confused. I wanted to scream in frustration because I could not full understand what had happened until I read this Tweet: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/nhoo4q
OK. What???? Fans are posting their screen shots of the Results at the close of polls because KHJ very CLEARLY won the Best Asian Idol for 2014. Now Yahoo is back pedaling and saying 'oops, our bad!' Whatever. I am so angry. They should have 1.) Announced that they had not had any confirmation of his attendance, 2) Given him the Award Title he WON, and 3) Informed the fans every step of the way!! Once again, KE FAILED the fans and Hyun Joong! I don't know what the H. E. double hockey sticks is going on... but, I am so frustrated and upset. They all knew how critical this was to go smoothly for Kim Hyun Joong. I just wish Hyun Joong would release a statement on his Official Youtube or hyun-joon.com to let us know where things are as far as his plans for the future. I'm sad, disappointed, and sick. I am mostly angry that every time something goes wrong for Hyun Joong everyone is blaming it on the scandal. I even had a fan e-mail me a rumor going stating that he was not appearing in public again until after his Military Service because of the scandal! That's just ridiculous! I don't buy it for a minute! He is no coward and no fool! He knows we are longing to see him. Any little thing. The photos from his charity event on 12/2/14 were grabbed up on Twitter and Facebook as we are so longing for any glimpse.

Gall Report from the parties spearheading the legal case against cyber criminals posting hate comments and defaming the reputation of Kim Hyun Joong after his case has been dismissed due to lack of evidence on 3 of the 4 counts brought by his accuser. A very interesting break down of the legal system in S. Korea and just what the decisions by the Police and Prosecutor's Offices mean. Also, and update on the progress of hiring the lawyer to represent the KHJ Fandom in pursuing legal action against hate comments and attacks on Kim Hyun Joong's reputation and his fans for defending his honor online. Great News for Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season. I have sent a few captures to them on your behalf, my dear readers, as you sent me a few links and sites. I will do my best to send them more as my health improves. Right now, I am home with a cold. I am very sad about it because I had very exciting plans with my family this weekend but I will have to miss them. Hope you are all healthy and happy! I am so Thankful for all the beautiful friends God has brought to me in the Fandom of Kim Hyun Joong! I love him and all of you with equal sincerity. Blessings to you all!
Like Passing the Olympic Torch, Kim Hyun Joong Fans Fight for his Right to Win the Yahoo Buzz 2014 Most Popular Asian Idol Award with Round the Clock Voting Vigil
As we near the end of another week of vigilant voting at the Yahoo Buzz Award site, I am filled with pride and awe as we have pushed Kim Hyun Joong's vote margin to nearly 400,00 in the lead. My heart has been warmed and my body energized as I voted at every opportunity available and received updates and invites for mass voting efforts from Kim Hyun Joong's dedicated fans on Twitter and Facebook. Communicating via private message and through an Official Facebook Event page, the fans have been rallying each other on to keep up the mass effort to vote as much as possible during certain hours of each day to counter the efforts of the #2 camp. Each day the calls for doubled efforts go out, and the hard labor has paid off with a nearly double lead margin in just 5 days time. We are truly a force to be reckoned with as we come together to fight for our Only One. Contenders beware, the Alien Family is strong and we come back swinging! Any threat to the reputation or well being of our first love, Kim Hyun Joong is met with fierce defense and strategy! Don't Mess with 'The Family!'
(That's a little GodFather humor for you, seeing as I come from an Italian family, and we love to joke about 'Uncle Cosmo!' LOL!)
Nominations, Nods and Nulls at the 2014 End of Year Artist Awards and Popularity Polls
The past few weeks have been all a flutter at Twitter, Facebook, and Kim Hyun Joong’s fan blogs getting the word out that it is that time of year again: Artist Award Nominations and Popularity Polls. I have updated my Support KHJ page with the latest as I have discovered them around the net or had them sent to me by active fans who are itching to vote their hearts out and support Kim Hyun Joong. Diligent voting and support this year seems even more fervent as we are going into this season right on the heels of a difficult and painful period. Kim Hyun Joong’s popularity may have seemed to suffer some in South Korea these past few months, but his International fans and his loyal and faithful South Korean fans are going strong and he is still on top in the polls. Now is the critical time as we tuck in and buckle down, ready for the voting frenzy for the months of November and December 2014.
Kim Hyun Joong is a True Artist with the Rare Ability to Evoke an Intense and Visceral Emotional Response Leaving us Helpless and Happy in the Intoxication of Bliss
I downloaded Kim Hyun Joong’s live version of ‘Creep’ by Radiohead performed at Budokan 2012 from Youtube again last night. I had this song on my old phone, and lost it when I changed phones. I finally found it again and have been playing it on repeat all morning and fighting back tears. I am not sad. I am moved. This song was a popular tune in the United States about 20 years ago. I liked the song when it was playing on the radio stations here constantly during it’s height. I did not purchase the song and I did not go to any of their concerts or anything like that. I liked the song. That was all. Now, I LOVE this song! Not just because Kim Hyun Joong covered it, but because of HOW he covered it. When I listen to his little introduction before starting the song, I can’t understand a word of what he is saying in Korean. It doesn’t matter. Just the gentle sound of his voice, and the inflections he makes when he makes a joke in Japanese and teases the fans makes me feel warm and happy. I don’t need to understand the words he is saying, because I understand the Emotion he is Evoking. This happens all before he even sings the first note.
