Kim Hyun Joong in J-ent Magazine and Preparing for Year End Music Comeback in Japan and China

Sometimes you hear of something forthcoming and just think “NOPE” and this is one of those for me. Disgraced but not criminally liable Korean singer-actor Kim Hyun Joong is reportedly planning a year end music comeback, to the sound of his loyal fans clapping and the rest of the world face palming. I’m sure he’s made enough money over the years that he can buy a few houses and invest in a few cafes and call it a life living off the returns. Whether the impetus is financial or he simply has to be a star, or maybe has music he needs to write to get off his chest, Kim Hyun Joong has decided that the dog poo pile of a scandal he crawled out of isn’t enough to stay away from the limelight and is currently working on his new album containing songs he wrote. His comeback towards the tail end of 2017 will be focused in Japan and China, and the former has already indicated it’s openness to his return by featuring Kim Hyun Joong in the cover and pages of a J-ent magazine. I can’t tell if its Kim Hyun Joong of his Madame Tussaud’s wax figure because the level of spackled makeup and dead eyes trying to portray soulful is freaking me out.

    • Say No only if you are perfect. KHJ is a brilliant artist let him live. Never give up Kim Hyun Joong Do no let negative people destroy your dreams. Keep pushing forward.

  1. Perhaps it may not be a case of him wanting to continue to be a star but his company pushing for him to return to make money off him? I’m not trying to defend him but I do think that it is necessary to consider that entertainment companies do have a big part to play in the activities of the artists that they manage.

  2. He seems to have reverted to his old Boys Over Flowers look compared to the more macho look before his enlistment. Perhaps trying to remind his fans he was once Ji Hoo.

  3. He was such a shitty actor. The only reason people liked him in BOF was because of second lead syndrome. He is so disgusting too in his private life. I can’t understand why he’s got fans left.

    • You write about him with such passion! He’s a human being that admittedly has made some bad choices in life, especially getting involved with miss Choi. As to his talent, he’s just not for you. I have enjoyed watching him in dramas and listening to his music. I hope he continues doing what he loves.

  4. I am not surprise he covered on Japan Mags because he likely paid for that. Its normal in Japan as become mag cover is part of promotion.
    I doubt he famous in Jap or China. some crazy fans maybe stay but he wont gain any new fans.
    anyway he isnt good actor, is he good singer??

    • He is such a shitty actor. I sat through BOF and Inspiring Generation thinking how on earth did he get those roles. But then I knew, it was because of his popularity from ss501 that landed him those roles. Because of his comeback, Allkpop comments section is a real mess, but a quite entertaining mess πŸ™‚

      • Wow! I am so surprised. He has no good projects after MS… just very curious, what do you like about him?

  5. A tangent, but:
    Allkpop comments are always a hot mess, not always the entertaining kind, too.

    I feel like those who write for Allkpop are writing for a middle school standardized essay test. And those who comment are 13 y.o. tweens. Intelligent discussion, you will not get.

  6. Wouldn’t it be terrible if you were accused of something criminal you didn’t do? This ex-girl friend really did it to KHJ. Now it is just a question of what he plans to do with his life: 1. Go hide and read all bad things said about him? or 2. Get up and show he will not hide in that lady’s shadow any longer. KHJ has fans all over the world. This publicity is bringing more fans to his side. And please help us keep a clean site for young readers. Thank you sincerely, a new fan

    • I agree. That’s what his song “Unbreakable is all about. It’s not just an attempt at hip hop. If you listen to Jay Parks rap what he’s saying is just because he’s (still) going through all this, doesnt mean he’s done. He’s got a lot more to give.

  7. This ex-girl friend really did it to KHJ. Now question is what he plans to do with his life: 1. Go hide and read all bad things said about him? or 2.

    • I too am a new fan. Just found out about him in 2016. Have read all I can about his messed up personal life. Not to say that he’s completely innocent, yet there’s too many fishy stuff going on with Ms Choi. Through? I’ve never seen someone that’s through with so many fans. Obviously no longer a teen idol, but still seeked out. I’m glad he’s not hiding. Stay Unbreakable KHJ.

    • There are sooo many actors and singers that, in my opinion, should never have made it big. And yet they did. It seems that there are just some people that are meant to make it. He’s one of them. No matter how much you cringe or face palm. He’s making his comeback. His fans are not giving up on him.
