[2019.09.14] Kim Hyun Joong
mini talk and Handshake at Sunrise Blgd,
HJ asked the fans who didn’t attend
the band concert 2 days&Yokohama to stand up.
There’re 8 fans.
Said he would memorize those fans’ faces.
If they claim it would be the last for them during handshake,
he would do it twice w/right and left hand.
To the fans who didn’t came last 2 band events and coming Yokohama...
HJ: [During handshake] Usually I say
“Thank you” or “See u”, but to them,
I’ll say, “Today all is over.
LOL Just Joking!”
3 questions HJ won’t answer during handshake:
1. When is the hug event?
2. Pls hold the orchestra concert in Tokyo
3. “Too bad about Hong Kong”
HJ: “HK was just postponed,
it will be held in the future so...”
HJ:I think I won’t hold any hug event in the future.
When I did it before,
it was extremely tough.
I got so much foundation [T-shirts].
If everyone has courage to come w/o wearing make up.
I will hold it.
At that time my staff will check ur make up!”
HJ: “If you want to hold a hug event without makeup,
please take care of your skin condition!”
HJ’s request for everyone:
1.When he sings”THIS IS LOVE’,
make ‘L’ w/fingers
2.Sing in chorus the beginning part,
HJ suggested to practice.
We sang along&HJ sang 1phrase,
“The rest is in Yokohama!”
THIS IS LOVE MV
[Great nature-universe, sea, etc.]
- w/band members =for the first time
-Shooting for 2 days
-In the last scene (stand-up motion)
= You can stand up by power of love
There’re some fans w/disabilities.
They told HJ that thanks to HJ’s songs,
they could overcome the difficult times.
HJ: “When I heard these things,
I realize my singing can give them energy to live and
I thought that I had to do my best too.”
HJ himself feels he is getting matured as a musician,
and stepping forward.
When you’re making songs,
you would be mentally against a big wall.
At such time, break out of your shell and move forward.
It can be applied to your life. too.
In the beginning of the 4th event,
a fan came in late running.
HJ noticed she participated in this event for the first time that day.
HJ: Why were you late?
HJ: You drank too much last night?
KR is in Chuseok now.
Normally families get together.
They’ve custom of giving gift of money to children.
HJ has a nephew to give,
but as HJ is in JP, he can’t get it.
HJ:”It might be good as my nephew would realize uncle is necessary.
THIS IS LOVE!”
After the band event.
HJ started to feel like holding a 50-100ppl capacity
small acoustic lives w/HJ playing guitar.
Fans said”No”as it’d be so hard to get ticket.
HJ gave up the idea.
HJ:The lives that won’t make everyone happy,
I will cancel immediately
As an alternative,
HJ suggested to hold an acoustic live
in this kind of handshake event.
HJ:”I feel burdened.
Do it now? Don’t have a guitar.
Can everyone become my guitar?”
Then HJ started vocal perception by himself,
and sang 1 phrase of SO WHAT.
HJ: The rest is in Yokohama!
After singing SO WHAT
HJ: “One more song?
You have to do guitar part.”
Again HJ started humming.
Sounded like Because I’m stupid,
everyone followed but it was kinda chaos...
HJ: It was not quite...but...better than I imagined...
HJ:”Shall we try Bark Matic?Is it difficult?”
Then HJ divided into 3 groups&assigned each part:
1: Wow wow wow
2. Jum Jum Jum pa
HJ conducted like a conductor.
Nice try but big disaster
HJ:”Now I know how important the GEMINI Band is.”
This is a real acoustic
HJ wants all to sing the chorus part w/Ziggy
HJ asked if anyone knows it.
A fan brings up hand HJ asked her to sing
but she refused it as her voice was shaggy
as she shouted hard at the band event.
HJ: You sound closer to him!
She sang & as the reward,
she got a hug from HJ
I’m a Million
HJ wants everyone to sing the shouting part in the beginning
HJ: Ahhhhhhhhhh (crescendo)
Did you know where it is? No?
Didn’t you guys buy my CD?
Get ready to scream out loud!
