Just like the phrase ‘birds of a feather flock together’, Kim Hyun-joong’s network consists of -literally- ‘beautiful flower boys’. His ‘buddies’ include majority coming from well-known stars in showbiz. Including JYJ members Hero Jaejoong and Mickey Yoochun, Big Bang’s TOP, actor Lee Min-ho and Kim Bum etc are his buddies as well.

 

● Hero Jaejoong…
During those times when DBSG and SS501 possess the highest of fame, both did not hesitate to give advices and help to each other. Beginning since the tough trainee days, both had begun to share each’s troubles, and with this built friendship, of course it does not change easily. It differentiates them all the more since both starred across in movie [Heaven’s Postman] and drama [Boys over Flowers] in the beginning of 2009 respectively. In 2010 January, both even went for a holiday in Canada together. While holidaying in Canada’s Vancouver, they event spent new year and enjoyed their rest. Both of them even appeared like twins to everywhere they go as they even stayed under one roof together. Even when Kim Hyun-joong’s contract with former agency DSP Media ended, he was rumored to collaborate with Jaejoong to form a new group.

 

●Mickey Yoochun…
Since Kim Hyun-joong is so close with Hero Jaejoong, it was inevident that he turned into friends with Mickey Yoochun as well. Whenever these three had time to pop, they will gather at the mini ‘inn’ nearby their living area and share their friendship. Recently also, Mickey Yoochun’s drama KBS [Sung Kyun Kwan Scandal] and Kim Hyunjoong’s MBC [Playful Kiss] also gave them the name of “Intimate Rivals”. Both expressed relief that they weren’t fighting during same time-slot, “We’ve heaved a thousand sighs of reliefs when we know we aren’t fighting in the same timing slot. If that was the case we won’t be able to see each other’s face for a few years then I guess”. Both did not forget to monitor and give acting suggestions for each other as they show care for buddy. Kim Hyun-joong says they were rivals beginning since SS501 and DBSG debuted, it’s like being rivals is their fate. We said ‘fighting’ to each other before our dramas began and also promised to meet up to drink after drama ends, but until now we haven’t met up, still”.

 

●Top…
They share the senior-junior relationship since middle school days. Thanks to Kim Hyunjoong’s introduction, Top and Jaejoong became close as well. In the MBC University Campus Festival in 2008, the band stage both of them showed had left deep impressions on fans. Kim Hyunjoong played the bass guitar, while Top – the keyboard. They had sung to David Craig’s “Rise and Fall”. After that, Top starred in drama [IRIS] and movie [INTO THE FIRE], while Kim Hyunjoong was busy moving into new agency etc, though they didn’t have time to meet up often like before, they still send frequent messages and make phone calls to each other as they look out on each other.

 

●Lee Minho, Kim Bum…
Through drama [Boys over Flowers], these two are his friends whom he met during his debut as an actor. As they build fame as ‘F4’, they still really do associate with one another even after drama ended. They all have a common favourite sport which is soccer, and they do meet up at times to enjoy soccer when they don’t have schedules. In addition, they also promise to cheer on for one another by ‘catching it live’ as whenever any one’s drama / movie shows.

Three top stars of the same age will be battling it out in our living rooms.

Singer Lee Seung Gi, SS501’s Kim Hyunjoong (Leader) and Tohoshinki’s Yoochun will be starring in dramas during the August – September periods. Lee Seung Gi was born in early ’87, and Hyunjoong and Yoochun were born in ’86 are of the same age. They will be competing on the acting stage to see who comes out tops.

Firstly, Lee Seung Gi. His comeback midweek drama “My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox” is scheduled to start airing on 11 August on SBS. He plays a man who lives with a nine-tailed fox spirit (Shin Min Ah) whose seal is broken after 500 years.

So far, Lee Seung Gi’s star quality in acting has been recognized via his dramas “Famous Princesses” and “Shining Inheritance.” “My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox” will probably serve to establish his position as an actor further.

Next, Hyunjooong, whose acting debut was the role of Yoon Ji Hoo (Hanazawa Rui) from F4 in “Boys over Flowers.” He will be touching girls’ hearts again in MBC’s new midweek drama “Mischievous Kiss.” This drama, like “Boys over Flowers”, is adapted from a popular Japanese comic, and Hyunjoong’s character is expected to shine, just like the actual comic character.

“Mischievous Kiss” will be directed by Hwang In Roe, who also directed “Goong” and is expected to air in August after “Road Number One”.

Finally, Yoochun will be officially kicking off his acting activities in September with the KBS drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal.” Unlike Lee Seung Gi and Kim Hyunjoong, he will not be competing at the same time slots, but the pressure for his debut is still great. Together with Park Min Young, Soong Joon Gi & Yoo Ah-In, Yoochun will be part of “Chosun Dynasty’s F4,” helping to alleviate his burden.

“SungKyunKwang Scandal” has received much interest both locally and internationally, and distribution rights were sold to Japan even before production began.

After Lee Seung Gi, Kim Hyunjoong and Park Yoochun’s drama are over, Super Junior’s Choi Siwon and Tohoshinki’s Changmin will be taking over. Choi Siwon will be featured in SBS’s “Athena : Goddess of War” and Changmin will be acting in “Paradise Ranch.”

T/N: Midweek dramas are actually called “Wednesday-Thursday” dramas, referring to the days that they are being aired on. “My Girlfriend is a Nine-tailed fox” and “Mischievous Kiss” will be showing at the above day slots, while “SungKyunKwan Scandal” will be aired on Monday & Tuesday.
