The news that SS501 Kim HyunJoong to be admitted to hospital turns out to be groundless.
Kim HyunJoong’s company representative said to Newsen on 16th through a phone conversation “It is not true that he has been admitted to hospital. His condition is not good with flu symptoms and his waist is aching on 8th, so he received medical treatments in the hospital and seems like there was a misrepresentation in the reports.”
He added “Kim HyunJoong had been busy with his schedules even after the filming of ‘Boys Over Flowers’, thus not able to have a good rest. In addition, he has not fully recovered from the injuries suffered in the car accident during the filming of the drama. He is currently resting at home with not much schedules on hand.”
He explained more “The Thailand concert (? Isn’t it like a visit to Koh Samui?) was cancelled was we can’t work out on the flight arrangement, etc. We have to fly through Bangkok to reach Koh Samui, so the time constraint will make it difficult for us to finish our schedule. We have postponed the Thailand promotional activities to later half of this year.”
He added “He went home immediately after receiving medical treatment at the hospital on 8th. I hope the fans would not have any misunderstanding.”
Meanwhile, SS501 will have a rest this week and from next week onwards, they will take on activities such as CF filming, etc. And they will be preparing for their Asia Tour concert that starts from August onwards.

As they say, “strike while the iron is hot!”. After ss501 band leader Kim Hyun Joong appeared in the hit drama Boys Before Flowers, his band has been in the spotlight and receiving much attention. All these while ss501 have been pretty popular in Korea and Japan, but rarely ventured to other countries in Asia. With the new publicity garnered, ss501 can now embark on their first Asian tour!
The good news is, fans in Malaysia can expect a ss501 concert in December 2009.
ss501’s will kick off their four month THE 1st ASIA TOUR PERSONA concert in Seoul on Aug 1 & 2. The concert in Seoul will be held at Seoul’s Olympic Park Gymnastic Stadium. They will also be performing in Budokan, Tokyo on 13 August. The tour will cover 10 countries which includes Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, China, Singapore and Malaysia!
ss501 will also be releasing their 2nd album by end of July 2009.
Only recently, it was reported that Kim Hyun Joong has been overworked and very tired. Besides working on their 2nd album, the boys are also working on a “collection album” where each member will have a solo song. Each solo song will be accompanied with a music video. So watch out for this too.
Back in March, three members of SS501 or Triple-S flew to Los Angeles to perform at the Victory Concert. This time, all five members of SS501 will be making the trip. The boys are scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles, California on May 6th in preparations for their second album release and also to perform at the Korea Times Music Festival on May 9th.
SS501 member, Kim Hyung Joon met with the press recently and stated that they will take pictures for their album jacket while in America and also meet with some music executives / producers. He also said that it won’t be a vacation and they will be working hard in America… however, he didn’t end it there. He continued by saying that the group is somewhat concerned about traveling to America because of all the talk about Swine Flu. Even with these concerns, they’re not concerned enough to have it ruin their experience in America.
5-member idol group SS501 goes into a different challenge.
SS501 Kim HyunJoong, Heo YoungSaeng, Kim KyuJong, Kim HyungJoon and Park JungMin, these 5 members will each record their solo songs and a special album is expected to be released in mid-May with a total of 5 songs.
There are instances that in new albums released by other popular idol group, they may have included solo songs by some of their members, however it is rare that the album is made up entirely of solo songs by each member of the group.
On SS501’s part, they also have high expectations for this album.
SS501’s company DSP Media said on 23-Apr “SS501 will release their new official album in about July. On this note, they prepared this album with the special meaning of rewarding the fans who have supported them during this period when Kim HyunJoong acted for drama ‘Boys Over Flowers’, activities for SS501 unit made up of Kim KyuJong Heo YoungSaeng Kim HyungJoon and Park Jungmin in musical.”
In addition, he expressed his confidence “Through this album, you will be able to feel the diversity and charms of each of the 5 members of SS501 at the same time.
Meanwhile, SS501 will have a Korea-Japan joint fan meeting in Jeju island for 2 days 1 night from 02-May.

saw this chinese posting by 火星j on baidu.
believe it’s a korean fan’s account, but the source is not indicated on the chinese posting.
won’t do word-for-word translation, will just share the key points and sequence of the event, ya?
the event’s supposed to start at 9pm, but people started crowding at the venue from 4ish in the afternoon.
the event started with the ‘famous’ jihoo scenes from the drama. after that, hyun joong apppeared from behind the screen.
he sang Thank You, and he was wearing the gray suit.
seems like his voice wasn’t in the best of condition. he sounded rather tired, but he still sounded great.
then the emcee came out. they chatted and joked for awhile.
then hyun joong sang Because I’m Stupid. this was also live. but he sorta missed the beat and made a mistake. he looked very nervous actually, but very cute.
next, kim bum and kim joon appeared on-stage and they started chatting again. they were hilarious, so funny!
then hyun joong sang Happiness Is, again he sang live while kim bum and kim joon sat on the safe by the side of the stage. as he was singing, he was goofing around and touching the two boys’ faces. totally funny.
then they watched the last epi of BoF. kim joon had to leave first; so hyun joong and kim bum sat on the sofa to watch the drama. can’t remember much of the drama honestly, except that there seemed to be a fair bit of hyun joong’s scenes.
after the drama ended, the two stood up to greet and thank everyone. then kim bum left the stage.
hyun joong changed his outfit to something that’s quite rain’s style (bb: the white jacket with black gloves?) and did a solo… it was hot. (bb: wonder what song he performed… it wasn’t mentioned.)
after that, the three guys from SS501 (triple S) came out and sang U R Man, and the trio also performed Because I’m Stupid.
and then jung min appeared!!!
and hyun joong also appeared, so the five of them sang together (bb: what song, what song??) next, the five of them introduced themselves and chatted on-stage. and then they sang Make A Lover.
then, they discussed on-stage what next to sing… then they sang… (bb: what song, what song??)
it feels so great to see the five of them on-stage again after so long. it’s wonderful to be able to come!!!
although it’s good for those who could make it here this time, but for those who could not come, please you must go and catch them in the asia tour. you really won’t be disappointed…
