Kim Hyun JoongBirth : June 6, 1986;Body : 182cm, 68kg;Job : Singer,actor,model, dancer; Debut : SS501 (2005);Blood Type : B;Agency : Key East
Breaking away from the labels attached to his boy band past as SS501’s leader, singer Kim Hyun Joong, who has set out to stand on his own two feet, lives by the motto ‘You only live once.’ But this doesn’t mean that the singer expects things to happen overnight.
“The motto I live by is ‘You only live once.’ When we say ‘You only live once,’ something like winning the lottery or the phrase ‘going out with a bang’ usually comes to mind, but that’s not what I mean. We really only have one life, and I want to live it to the fullest.”
KIM HYUN JOONG'S CHILDHOOD STORY BY KHJ'S OMMA
A lifetime of 25 years may be long or short, depending on whom you ask, but Kim has tried to live every day diligently, and he is beginning to see the fruits of his labor as he establishes himself as a solo artist not only in Korea, but across Asia.
Having debuted in a group, Kim isn’t satisfied with where he is currently. Although the singer has traversed Japan, China and Thailand and been well-received in numerous other countries, when Kim is asked, ‘Do you feel settled?’ he says ‘Not yet.’
There’s no sign of slowing down for Kim, who released his first solo album in June and plans to release his second mini album Lucky on October 11.
“As a singer, I want to barrel full speed ahead because of my impending enlistment,” said Kim. “I want to make my mark as a singer before I enlist. In our country, there’s a tendency to be easily forgotten. Because I haven’t really established myself as an actor either, I’m thinking of doing a drama next year as well.”
It doesn’t take one long to realize that Kim is someone who carefully plans out his path. Following the release of his second mini album, the singer will release a winter-appropriate digital single in December, before releasing another album early next year and embarking on an Asian tour. The reason for the consecutive releases is so Kim can show fans a variety of performances during his tour.
Kim’s will is not to be taken lightly. But you can′t quite consider him a jack of all trades, since he really only wants to go ′all in′ as a singer and an actor.
“I’ve been juggling singing and acting as well as running a business, but honestly, I’ve handed the business over to my friends and am just watching from afar,” said the singer. “I only really care about acting and music. Many people ask me if I’m only going to do two things, and I’m only going to do those two things. Young Saeng, who said he would never do a musical, did a musical a little while ago, but I don’t plan on doing any musicals.”
“I’ve been running tirelessly with the thought that I want to present the fans at home and abroad with something,” continued the singer, revealing his passion and goal-oriented work ethic. Kim is indeed living according to the motto ‘You only live once.’
“I will continue to juggle being a singer and an actor. As I flow [in and out of those roles], I want to establish my image as a singer and an actor. I’m hoping that once I complete the Asian tour, the public will recognize the image of singer Kim Hyun Joong. I’m excited for that day to come. That’s why I want to release an album as soon as I can.”
The level of Kim’s engagement musically continues to deepen as well. Not only did he pen some of the songs himself, he played an active role in the album′s production. His image transformations from album to album also highlights the many facets of his charm, and his first album Break Down, in particular, contains five tracks that showcase different sides to the singer.
“What do I want to achieve in my 20s? I’ve already achieved it. Because I’m a singer!” said the singer. “Rather than what I want to achieve from now on, I want to live out the dream I’ve already achieved as a singer.”

0-4 yrs old, as long as Hyun Joong was lost in the park, it must be because he ran to the singer performance stage.
Since Hyun Joong was born, he was very popular among the neighbours because of his big eyes, sharp intuition and cleverness.
One day, in my dream, all in a sudden, I dream of a truck fully loaded with radish driving passed me. There was a huge radish which was of the size of the truck. Withing my apron on, I ran after the truck, trying to catch the big radish. The radish rolled into my apron and I fell down onto the floor. This was the largest radish I had ever seen in my entire life. I was very surprised. Just when I tried to lift up the radish to take a look, I woke up from my dream. I felt very strange: “Is this a sign that I am pregnant?” Therefore, I went to the hospital for checkup. The doctor told me: “Congratulations!”. Indeed, I was pregnant!
Hyun Joong started to walk when he was 9 month old. Before this, although he can sit alone, he couldn’t climb, the family members were worried that he might be slow to learn walking. However, he omitted the climbing stage and advanced to the walking stage. All the family members were shocked.
During his 1 year old birthday, he would offer his birthday steam rice cake for the guests to eat. During the Toljabee* event, in order to let him choose the pencil and book, the family members purposely placed both items right in front of him, instead, he chose the brush which was placed beside those items. Hyun Joong started speaking and counting very fast, but he was most interested to sing, dance and play games.
(*Note: Toljabee event is used to predict the child’s future. In this case, Hyun Joong picked the brush which symbolizes that he will become a scholar.)
Since being newly wed up to now, our family has been living nearby the SongpaGu Olympic park. Every weekend, there would be a lot of singers performing there. When bringing Hyun Joong and his elder brother who is 1 year older than him to the park for a stroll, both children would be very happy.
Hyun Joong even got lost a few times, I panicked and searched all over the park, eventually he was always found at the stage where the singers were performing.
Once, the dance group “Seo Tai-ji and boys” were singing ‘I Know’ in the park, Hyun Joong actually ran up to the stage to dance. He even played games with the other singers on stage and laughed happily. Hyun Joong was excellent in his studies, it had never come to my mind that he will become an artist. However now that I started to think, he seems to be different from other kids since childhood.
Kim Hyun Joong excelled in studies when young, had never thought of being a star
5 – 9 years old, childhood time Kim Hyun Joong
From kindergarten, Hyun Joong had shown his multiple talents. Solving math sum very fast and drew well. Also, learned to speak and recognized words very fast. His elder brother who was 1 year older than him would always sit still to learn. However, Hyun Joong was the kind of child who could play almost everything but yet could still learn well at the same time.
We were worried that both children would feel pressured from learning, therefore, we always let them get in touch with nature more often. In order to celebrate their starting of primary school life, our family went for a tour in Jeju Island. During that time Hyun Joong rode on a horse which was many times taller than him and refused to come down. Seeing this, the people around praised him for being so wonderful. During weekends, we always brought the children to fish. This is why until now, if he felt pressured from his artist work, Hyun Joong will always go fishing alone.
Starting from 2nd year of primary school, Hyun Joong became the class representative. He always handled his own things meticulously. Waking up right after his little alarm clock rang at 6am in the morning on time, completing all his home work by himself. When we visited his school, his class teacher always praised him: “Hyun Joong was very fast in learning. He would not have a problem to enroll into Seoul University.”
At that time, we thought Hyun Joong would use his learning ability to be successful in his career, we had never thought that he would be an artist.
Actually, starting from 2nd to 4th year of his Primary school, Hyun Joong participated in the Mathematic Olympic Competition and he always won the Gold medal. He also always won in art competition. His medals were so many until it could fill up an entire box. His result was always ranked 1st in the class and often rank 1st or 2nd in the whole school.
To prevent him from being singled out by his friends, we also sent him for extra tuition classes to learn calligraphy and Hanja. Even in the tuition center, he was always top in the class. When still in the lower primary years, Hyun Joong already obtained the certificate for level 3 Hanja qualification examination. His tuition center teacher praised: “Hyun Joong passed the certification examination even lower secondary students found hard to pass.” Our family members were also shocked.
Hyun Joong hide 300 millions won (approximately USD237,000) in a book as a gift for his brother
In junior high school placement test, he was enrolled scoring the 4th highest result in the entire school. It was in his 3rd year junior high school when he announced that he wanted to be an artist. As his father was worried that he was too engrossed in his studies, he bought him a guitar to ‘rest his brain’, this was the trigger point for him to be an artist.
Hyun Joong started to be engrossed in guitar. Hyun Joong guitar teacher said: “He is very talented, something needed to be learned in 3 years he could master them in 3 months. His guitar teacher once advised his father to let Hyun Joong further his talent in music, but his father was strongly against it.
There after, Hyun Joong formed a band, working part time and performing outside. There’s once, the neighbours said: “The day before, the child of that household was delivering fried chicken.” Only then the family knew that he worked part time in fried chicken restaurant. We felt that as a man one had to be independent, it is alright to go through hardships, so we didn’t stop him from working.
Hyun Joong said: “I would follow my parents’ wish to study in arts high school, but I will make every other decisions in future.” After joining the high school for 1 year, he voluntary dropped out from school. His father & I said: “Dropping out was your own choice, you have to be responsible for your own decision.” He was given only 10 thousand won (USD7.90!) pocket money every month.
Due to Asean financial crisis, our business was affected. We started a fashion business in Dongdaemun. We had to work until 11pm everyday. After getting off from work, I often went to the TGI restaurant which my son worked to secretly watch my son working for around 1 hour before returning home.
During winter, while waiting for my son to come back home, I kept looking out for him from the window. At around 1am, looking at my son making his way through the knee height snow with much difficulties, I felt pain in my heart. In spite of that, I didn’t want him to see my sorrow and always turned off the lights to pretend that everybody had fallen asleep.
After passing the trainee singer interview, my son would return home only when he was given time off. In order to be a trainee, his pocket money was always not enough. Often, he came back starving by public bus. There were many times, he didn’t even have the transportation fee and had to walk home. Despite that, Hyun Joong had never once asked for money from us.
But his love for his family members is extremely deep. When his brother who was studying in America decided to dropped off from his university due to lacking of school fees, Hyun Joong told his brother: “Brother, please read this book.” and gave him a novel as a present.
When his brother opened up the book to read, he found a 300 million won cheque hidden in the book. His brother gave his father a call mentioning that no matter how he counted he couldn’t believe the cheque amount. It was beyond our imagination that while being a trainee singer, he could still carefully save so much money. Ever since he enrolled into the university (Kyonggi University Digital Music faculty), we never worried about him.
Both of us always told him: “Pray before doing something”. Although Hyun Joong said: “Since now elder brother is serving in the army, you can rely on me. Therefore, in the future, don’t work in Dongdaemum anymore.” We hope that not only he can be a singer but also be able to form a family of his own and be responsible. With this, we have no other extravagant hopes.
