Following behind Kim Hyun Joong who signed on to a full contract with a Bae Yong Jun's agency Keyeast in mid-June after contract with former agency ended, it has been revealed that popular idol group SS501's member Park JungMin will also be signing on to a new agency company as well. Whilst on the other hand, 'SS301' will be carrying out their singer activities after the last 2008. SS301 (pronounced Double S sam-gong-il) is a unit group consisting of Heo Young Saeng, Kim Kyu Jong, Kim Hyung Jun.
SS501's personnel expressed that Park JungMin who's been having a huge interest over acting will be managing himself this time round, and has been searching for a new agency company. While Heo Young Saeng, Kim Kyu Jong and Kim Hyung Jun will wish to carry out singer activities together rather than doing solo activities, and is currently searching for new agency company.
SS301 which consists of Kim Kyu Jong, Heo Young Saeng and Kim Hyung Jun are the recruitment targets that top agency companies are looking for in the current music FA industry scene. They have been receiving invitations from many agency companies here and there who are offering them huge contract fees, but despite so, 3 of them are hoping to move into a company whom they could trust and rely on fully, rather than the money that they are concerned about. A personnel of the members revealed, "Although the contract fees is of course an important element we consider, the members are wishing for a company whom they could trust fully/without qualms, and where they would be able to maximize the best of their abilities".
Since SS501 members are collaborating with and moving into various different agency companies, it seems like carrying out activities together as SS501 will be challenging for the time being. However there isn't much of a displease amongst members, all of them still want SS501 to be existent, and so it seems like the team will not break up fully (fully? that shouldnt even exist!).
Especially where SS501 has such high popularity in Taiwan, the possibility of them standing together on foreign stages again for promo purposes could not be ruled out, too.
On the other hand, SS501 who is quoting the '1+1+3' activity formula is similar to that of original ancestor H.O.T after they disbanded. -H.O.T information omitted

Keyeast personnel expressed, "Though it's true that Bae Yong Jun's fanbase has had expanded to Kim Hyun Joong too, we don't know how wide the scale is. That's why this time's Japan journey will be an important gauge for us for his future promotion activities."

김현중 ‘욘사마 후계’ 첫발
‘꽃남’ 프로모션 등 본격 日 활동…CF도 바통터치
‘리틀 욘사마’ 김현중이 배용준의 후광을 업고 본격적인 일본 활동을 시작한다.
그는 다음달 18일 오사카 그랑큐브와 21일 도쿄 국제포럼에서 각각 2회씩 총 4회에 걸쳐 열리는 드라마 ‘꽃보다 남자’ 프로모션으로 소속사 이전 후 일본 프로모션의 첫발을 내딛는다.
4월 SS501 아시아투어의 일환인 사이타마 수퍼아레나 공연을 위해 일본을 방문한 지 4개월 만이고, 개인 일정으로는 지난해 9월 ‘꽃보다 남자’ 프리미엄 이벤트 이후 11개월 만이다.
지난달 배용준이 대주주로 있는 키이스트에 새롭게 둥지를 틀며 ‘욘사마 급’ 한류스타로의 성장 가능성을 처음으로 확인하는 자리라 더욱 관심이 쏠린다. 일부에서는 김현중이 일본 내에서 이미 송승헌이나 소지섭의 인기를 넘어섰다는 분석이 나오고 있다.
키이스트 측은 “배용준의 팬층이 김현중 쪽으로 넓혀지고 있는 분위기가 조금씩 감지되고는 있지만 어느 정도인지는 우리도 정확히 파악하지 못하고 있다”며 “그래서 이번 일본행이 향후 프로모션을 진행하는 데 중요한 기준점이 될 것”이라고 밝혔다.
키이스트의 자회사인 일본 위성채널 DATV는 ‘김현중의 모든 것’이라는 특집 프로그램을 27일 첫 방송했고, 시리즈로 방송을 이어가며 김현중의 한류몰이에 힘을 싣는다.
또 그는 이번 방문 중 19∼20일 시즈오카현에서 팬들과 ‘꽃보다 남자’의 촬영장을 방문한다. 10월 11일에는 도쿄 JCB홀에서 DVD 및 사진집 ‘더 퍼스트 러브 스토리’ 출시 기념 팬미팅을 두 차례 연다.
한편 김현중은 배용준의 뒤를 이어 화장품 브랜드 더페이스샵의 새 모델로 발탁되는 등 이들의 특별한 관계가 실체를 드러내기 시작했다.

One student from So Myung Girls' High said this was taken secretly!
Baek SeungJo got full marks 500 marks for the mock exam at Pa Rang High School!
In the original comic, the result is given grades from 1st to the last, but in our country, we use 1, 2, 3 (not too sure how they grade in Korea) for grading~~
The production team is really detailed. Keke
Anyways, I just saw this photo ^^ he got full 500 marks for the mock exam!
Only Baek SeungJo's result is eye-catching!
That is the result graph of the whole school~
500 marks Baek SeungJo is indicated there, keke
And thereafter, there are afew students with 480 marks...450 marks, etc, that's how the graph is being plotted~

Some are translated from the Japanese subtitles and for certain parts was unable to translate as it is a bit unclear... >_<
Japanese Translation: miyo @lovekimhyunjoong.com
If I do not work out, my body will feel uneasy.
Every Sunday, I play soccer.
From Monday to Saturday, I don't stop either..
I go to the gym.
Question In Japan, felt puzzled/embarassed?
There are Korean and Japanese words that have the same pronounciation but different meanings.
oh.. in Japanese I mixed up with "doryoku shimasu"(refers to work hard, putting in effort) and "nouryoku shimasu"(refers to ability)
Kept mixing it up as in Korean, working hard is pronounced as "noryoku" right? (looking to side at staff for confirmation)
Mixing up the words, when I said "noryoku shimasu"(referring to work hard), I was taken as saying having the ability instead.
At that time, due to not knowing the difference in same pronounciation, was unable to communicate naturally.
ooh... when I first came to Japan, I said to the stylist, "Please give me mokkori (necklace in korean)."
But the stylist looked at me oddly..
Comparing Japanese and Korean language, it is really interesting.
(can't really hear clearly..but the host was saying something like one will feel embarassed when said mokkori)
As the expression are different...
When I said I go the health.
In return, I would be asked, "From morning?"
I would reply "Of cause to go in the morning right"
In Korean, gym is call health but Japan it is different.
I felt the difference between the culture and language.
(Background voice) Well, seems like it has been hard for him while staying Japan.
Lastly, please leave a message for the audience.
Everyone who's watching "Kim Hyun Joong~Just the way he is~",
Although the time is short but are you satisfied with it?
I'll see you next time in Japan.
I have prepared an interesting talk and cool performance
Please wait and look forward to it
(Background voice) After saying thank you etc after the filming, he naturally arranged the chair... (sorry can't hear clearly.. but I think she's trying to say he was nice to do that)
Sorry that it might be a bit hard to understand the differences in language...
For "Mokkori" which means necklace in Korean...
In Japanese.. it actually refers to men having a hard on (em.."standing up" u know what I mean eh?.. lol.. )
So you can imagine Hyun Joong saying that to the stylist.. XP
For the "going to health".
In Japanese, they call gym as gym.
But when one say going to health and especially in the morning..
If I remember correctly...lol.. it more of refers to one going for "special kind of massage" ...^^

'Idol opponents' SS501 Kim Hyun Joong and TVXQ Micky, from stage to theatre, will have a confrontation in self-esteem duel.
SS501 Kim Hyun Joong as the male lead in MBC's new drama 'Mischievous Kiss' (September 1 broadcast), and as an ex-member TVXQ, Micky Yoochun who, through KBS 2TV's new drama ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ (August 30 broadcast), becomes an actor
Because of changes in management companies and unknown status of their respective groups, both will be using TV drama as a new starting point.
Kim Hyun Joong and Micky Yoochun have been opponents in the music industry since the two belongs to SS501 and TVXQ which have been the nation's top boy bands; they have engaged in a friendly competition ever since debut.
Especially since both groups are five-members group, from the group members, to the popularity in korea and even thoughout Asia naturally become a good comparison for both.
The results of the two reappearing as actors, not singers, in a duel once again are closely watched. The commonalities between the two, both 'Mischievous Kiss' and 'Sungkyunkwan Scandal' are Kim Hyun Joong's and Micky Yoochun's first time as the male leads in the dramas; both targeting at the younger audience levels; same broadcast timing which made the competition between the two more intense.
Kim Hyun Joong possibly has more room over Micky Yoonchun in terms of being an actor, because of the Korean version of "Boys Over Flowers" in which he starred as JiHoo Sunbae, displayed his full acting skills and proved his star effect. But there are some problems as Kim Hyun Joong was pointed out on his pronunciation and unnatural expression in 'Boys Over Flowers'. So how Kim Hyun Joong is going to enact a different kind of role from that of 'Boys Over Flowers' is highly anticipated. If his role in Boys Over Flowers is synonymous with gentle, then his current role is one that is disinterested in anything; boring and cold. Detailed analysis of Japan and Taiwan version of the TV series, said that whether the TV series is popular depends on how much Kim Hyun Joong is able to assimulate the role.
see how Kim Hyun Joong shoulders a heavy burden. Micky Yoochun in 'Sungkyunkwan Scandal' also started off with a heavy responsibility. Although he has been acknowledged as a star in the music industry, Micky Yoochun is a rookie in the world of drama acting. As an actor, Micky Yoochun's gentle image in TVXQ will have a 180-degree change. His role, Lee Sun Joon, in the drama is a perfect guy with outstanding knowledge, financial status and looks.
TV fans of the original novel is divided into two, some were saying the choice to cast Micky Yoonchun in this drama is the best while other said the role is inconsistent. Facing his challenges as an actor for the first time, many are concerned with whether Micky Yoochun can perform up to expectation and display his acting skills to the fullest.
As opponents, previously in the music industry, now in the acting industry, Kim Hyun Joong and Micky Yoochun's new drama battle is highly anticipated.
