Kim Hyun Joong of SS501 and Boys Over Flowers fame is sporting a new look by changing up his hairstyle. His hair is now dark and much shorter than before.
His hairstyle isn’t the only thing that’s changed. According to a newsen interview with fellow SS501 member Kim KyuJong, it’s been revealed that Kim Hyun Joong’s personality has somewhat changed after the filming of Boys Over Flowers. Where as before, Hyun Joong was somewhat brash and blunt, he’s a bit more subdued and laid back now.
NewsEn is reporting that SS501 was chosen to be models for the French sports apparel brand Le Coq Sportif. Le Coq Sportif is a famous brand name in Europe, Korea, and Japan (not so much in America). They sponsor some famous soccer teams such as Manchester City F.C.
Le Coq Sportif chose SS501 because they’re a popular Korean Idol group with good looks, a very unique / fascinating fashion sense, and strong personalities that fits with the image of the brand. Another boon is the fact that Kim Hyun Joong was becoming very popular in Korea because of Boys Over Flowers. This is great news but there’s more great news for their fans.
SS501 is also scheduled to have a fanmeeting for two days (May 2nd and 3rd) on Jeju Island (Warm Climate Vacation Spot). This won’t be any normal fanmeeting because the SS501 boys will dress up as Steward’s and fly with the fans down to the island. They won’t just be acting because they’ll actually serve the fans like any Steward / Stewardess would. Around 350 total fans will be attending the fanmeeting (150 Korean and 200 Japanese). The whole trip will be filmed and will air on MNet sometime in May.

As most of you know, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum, Kim Joon, and a bunch of other celebrities took part in a Coach’s “Coach Taste Maker Tote Project,” in which the celebrities personally designed their own canvas tote bags.
The Kim trio (Kim Bum, Kim Jun, & Kim Hyun Joong) aka the F3 will debut as designers for Coach (yes, the American brand) who is launching a “Coach Taste Maker Tote Project” event for their grand opening at the Shin Sae Gae (New World) Centum City in Busan.
20 famous celebrities are taking part by personally designing a canvas tote bag using color pencils, markers, dyes, cloth, beads, etc that will be auctioned. Designer quality at its finest. Some of the celebrities partaking in this event include the F3 Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum, (I wonder why the leader is missing?) Tablo’s new love Kang Hye Jung, sexy singer Son Dam Bi, Kim Ji Soo, Lee Seung Yeon, Lee Hana, model Song Kyung Ah, Kim Da Wool, designer Kim Young Suk, Kim Jae Hyun, Dylan, etc
These bags will be exhibited in the Busan store from March 27th to April 5th and available for auction online from the 20th to April 6th on their website. Proceeds from the auctions will go toward a children’s foundation. Can you guess which bag is designed by who? Hint: Only 2 of the boys have their design shown and it should be easy if you are a fan.
Anyway, the bags were put up for a charity auction, where Kim Hyun Joong’s bag raised the most money, having its highest bid at a whopping 2,500,00 won (about $2,000 USD). Altogether, the total raised was 8,500,000 won ($6,447 USD), which means that Kim Hyun Joong’s bag alone raised almost 1/3 of the total amount. That’s pretty sad, considering there were 22 celebrities who participated in the project. Besides F3, some of the other less important participants were Son Dambi, Kang Hye Jung, Kim Ji Soo, Lee Seung Yeon, Lee Hana, Song Kyung Ah, Kim Da Wool, Kim Young Suk, Kim Jae Hyun, and Dylan.

Goodnes!that’s a lot of money!!
I can’t guess who designed the other three tote bags (I know the first is from Son Dam Bi because of the signature…-_-) whose are the others?
Kim Hyun Joong of SS501 / Boys Over Flowers fame was rushed to the hospital earlier today as he fainted while filming for a commercial.
He fainted because of exhaustion, he recently stated that he’s been averaging only 2-3 hours of sleep per night. One would expect him to have more free time to rest because Boys Over Flowers is over. However, the opposite has occurred. After wrapping up filming for Boys Over Flowers he has been busy with scheduled fan meetings, shooting for various commercials, and other activities.

Woohoo!!!Yay!!Most of my favorites are here!!super yay!!
We are now in a generation when once you have one hit-song-producing idol group in your company, you will survive well in the competition in the Kpop market of this era.
Kpop big players YG Entertainment, SM Entertainment, DSP Entertainment and JYP Entertainment have been up busy with their plans to stay in the competition, and they all each had their representative female/male idol group.
The first company to push a big-scale project in year 2009 is YG. They preparing to debut a female group with the help of the name of their existing group Big Bang, which debuted in 2006. Known as ‘female Big Bang‘ until recently, the group official name is set to be ‘21, To Anyone’.
21, who is set to debut in May, has come together to sing a CM song with group Big Bang. And this has produced great synergy for the debuting group. The song the 2 groups sang together ‘Lollipop’ has risen up various online music chart steadily, standing in same level as other singers like Son DamBi, Seo Taiji, Super Junior etc. Not only so, being the new YG female group in so many years, there is more anticipation for this upcoming group.
As for JYP, who created the ‘So Hot’ craze last year with its girl group WonderGirls, have no other plans to make another representative male group. Because already, they are covering both groups of fans loving ballads and dance songs with their male groups 2AM and 2PM.
Recently into their individual ativities like drama and musical, group SS501’s company DSP Entertainment is also putting its hopes on its girl group KARA who debuted in 2007 and was given the nickname of ‘the 2nd Fin.K.L‘.
And KARA was said to have live up to the name of South Korea’s representative girl group with the title song ‘Honey’ shooting up to the #1 spot on various music programs and charts from their 2nd minialbum released last December. With this, they join the league of girl groups like So Nyeo Shi Dae and WonderGirls.
And lastly, company SM Entertainment which gave birth to many Kpop legends like H.O.T and BoA have its representative girl group So Nyeo Shi Dae dominate the first half of 2009 with the song ‘Gee’.
SM’s own representative group Dong Bang Shin Ki, already with their numerous fanbases established overseas, also said, “Whenever we turn on the TV, we see So Nyeo Shi Dae.”
One of the Kpop producers provided, “We have stepped into an era where you just need one successful singer to be safe in competition in the Kpop market. With a successful male or female group in the company, the new incoming singers get the benefit of attracting more attention to themselves and having more advertisement. And right now, this is the time when idol groups are viewed as important to hit into the market of the music fans in their teens and twenties. And that is why many companies are working hard to push their male or female idol groups.”
With this, there are news that group Jewelry’s company is also in the midst of preparation for the debut of a new male group.
