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.
Wonderful Thanksgiving News to Cheer our Hearts as We go into the Holiday Season
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.
KeyEast Announces Kim Hyun Joong’s Military Plans Will Not be Expedited as He Takes a Much Needed and Well Earned Period of R & R.
I was browsing around for news again last night and came across a couple more articles concerning Kim Hyun Joong’s Military Enlistment Plans and a brief but much needed statement from KeyEast regarding his hiatus over the last couple of weeks. The articles are still trying to blame his enlistment date on the scandal. One article even quoted the same interview I used in my last article where Hyun Joong made the statement he would enlist when he turned 30. They very conveniently left off the last sentence of that statement where Hyun Joong said he would enter the military early next year. I love how they selectively use his words to substantiate their claims and pull them out of context. Just like bits of text messages were pulled out of context to ‘prove’ his ex girlfriend’s claims they had been dating for two years instead of two months. KeyEast weighed in briefly stating that Hyun Joong was not enlisting early and in fact had not even received a draft notice to date. They assured that he was simply taking a rest from his activities and had not rearranged or cleared his schedule as a result of the scandal. The representative from KeyEast also stated that the news media should not have been reporting this news without confirming with his agency first.
Kim Hyun Joong hasn’t even received a draft notice. How would one enlist without a draft notice? The rumors of his enlistment are not true. Upon seeing the enlistment news reports, our agency representatives said that no one had contacted them about the matter; it’s strange. We don’t understand how those reports got out without confirming with us. -Yang Geun Hwan, Head of KeyEast Entertainment
Kim Hyun Joong's Military Enlistment, Mismanagement and Miracles in the Making
Kim Hyun Joong and that naughty tongue! So Cute!
I had a reader make a very interesting comment recently regarding her thoughts on what Kim Hyun Joong might be feeling as he receives so much love from fans all over the world. She stated that he is probably very confused by this unconditional love and feeling that he is undeserving of such loyalty and devotion. I responded to her that if he felt deserving of it, well then, he would not be. Ironic to be sure, but nevertheless true. This comment has given me a lot of food for thought this past week about the power of celebrity and how we still put Hyun Joong up on a pedestal even though we admit that we know very well just how human he is. It is difficult for us not to place him up there because he is such an amazing individual. We fully recognize his faults, but his virtues outweigh them so heavily, we still ‘idolize’ him to a degree that may be seen as unhealthy or unrealistic to others who are not fans and especially to Kim Hyun Joong himself. I have been letting this idea soak in to my brain and heart for this entire week, and I am still trying to put myself in his position to see how he might be feeling about everything that has happened. I have concluded that we place those we love up on high pedestals in our hearts whether they are a World Renowned ‘Global Star’ or an Amazing Spouse, Lover, Best Friend, Sibling, Parent, Spiritual Leader or Mentor. It is human nature to do so. It’s not that we are ignoring a person’s humanity and faults, we just choose to let them fade into the background of our thoughts and focus on the parts of them we see as perfect. We are not disillusioned, simply selective.
Kim Hyun Joong Keeps a Grounded and Level Head Even as He Achieves Top Rank and Status in the Industry of Super Egos and Superiority Complexes
I had to share these Tweet video shorts of Hyun Joong Scuba Diving because he is smiling and happy! I hope he is as refreshed as he looks here! Credit to the Person(s) who were so kind to post! ENJOY!
And so, after my last post, all my readers got to see just how 4D I really am. No, I was not on an acid trip and I didn’t eat anything strange! LOL! I just have thoughts that are way beyond sometimes. I think that is one more reason I love and relate to Kim Hyun Joong so much. Sometimes he says some of the strangest things and people are just left in stunned silence. I notice he doesn’t burst those out as much as he did in his early career. Probably because it just feels lonely when people have nothing to say. Ah, but the 4D part of him is a part we love dearly also. Even if we don’t always understand what’s going on in that otherworldly mind of his sometimes. I am just missing him so much while he is hidden away. I took a trip into my own 4D world trying to describe how I feel so close to him. Today, I’m back from Planet Angela and here with you once again. Since we are missing Hyun Joong so very much, I decided I will be re-posting a series of articles I wrote 2 years ago. In the series, I explored the many facets of Kim Hyun Joong and just how blessed he is. I hope my observations back then can help some of the fans see just why I am so devoted to him and trust him so completely. I was not just struck by the lightening magic of Kim Hyun Joong, I actually did my homework and made a logical decision to follow and trust him as well. I do hope you enjoy reminiscing those early discoveries with me. Look forward to them coming soon.
The Spiritual Connection between Two Hearts Transcends Time and Space. Our Souls Meet and Commune in that Realm between Daylight and Dreams.
I wanted to talk about and explore the Love Connection between my heart and the heart of a young man I have never physically met. I have never had the blessing of meeting Kim Hyun Joong In The Flesh so to speak. I don't have the financial means to travel to any of the locations he has been to around the world and I am a bit sad I have not been able to experience a live appearance. I am sad, but my heart is not in despair because I have a spiritual love connection with Kim Hyun Joong that borders on the supernatural. I don't have to be in his physical presence to feel that our Souls just 'know' each other. Even though he doesn't know my face or my name, I still fully believe he receives my love and can draw strength and comfort from the meeting of our hearts. We meet together every day when my thoughts and prayers turn to him. I may sound like a crazy person saying such things, but I really believe in a metaphysical dimension where physical bodies are meaningless. I believe that two people who have never physically met and perhaps do not even know each other's names or faces can meet, fall in love, and have a full and satisfying communion in the senses of their soul.
I've been writing about Kim Hyun Joong since 2011. He is always busy and happy and I love to read about him and write my reactions and feelings about his work and his public life. I want a place where Alien Family can gather and discuss their beloved, Kim Hyun Joong.
