Heo Young Saeng Talks About Solo Album and SS501 110620

These are such nice words coming from such a nice person from such a nice KPOP boy group. Haha! I'm talking about our prince, Young Saeng and SS501. Read the article, please. It will give a smile on your face :)

Heo YoungSaeng “SS501 Discord? We Don’t Even Use the Word ‘Disband’ Among Ourselves”

Heo YoungSaeng returned as solo. He was a member of 5-member group SS501 until last year and has debuted as a solo singer. Ending their contract with agency DSP Media, the members each move to a new agency, Heo YoungSaeng and Kim KyuJong settled in B2M Entertainment which houses Lee Hyori.

The first harvest is mini album ‘Let It Go’. It was his solo debut album, however it was delayed as he fractured and tore the ligament of back of his right hand during the dance practice in April, the album released thereafter became even more precious.

Same title album name and title song was very well received. Breaking the prediction that having a beautiful voice, he should traditionally be choosing a ballad song, he returned with a mid-tempo dance song and was ranked in the top ranks in various online music sites, and in addition he was also one of the candidates for the 1st place in KBS 2TV music program ‘Music Bank’ on 20-May.

Through his title song ‘Let It Go’, Heo YoungSaeng transformed into a cold guy who is indifferent to love. On 16-June, we met with the solo singer in Kuki Media office at SangAm-dong, Seoul.

“The goal for this album is to publise my name. People know me as a member of SS501, but they don’t know who is Heo YoungSaeng (laughs). With the mind to let others know my name, I emptied my greed released the album, I am happy yet bewildered to be receiving so much love which was unexpected. When I was one of the candidate for the 1st place, I was also surprised.”

The dance song was chosen as his title song in order for him to show his other type of attraction. “I was wondering what image is the best to make my debut as a solo singer, and I came upon this song ‘Let It Go’. I also thought that ballad would suit me better but at the moment I heard the song, I thought that it isn’t a bad idea to show another side of me. I prepared to my best in order to hear people say ‘Heo YoungSaeng suits such a song well too’.”

Heo YoungSaeng is the 3rd member out of SS501 to have his solo debut, after Park JungMin and Kim HyungJun. About the comparisons with the 2 members who debuted before him, he said drawing a line “This is not a competition among SS501 members but a fight against myself.”

“I never thought of competing against SS501 members. It is not a comparative advantage with SS501 but I think it is more important to release an album that satisfies me. Even though I did my best for this album, but there are still a lot of disappointments like something were undone yet. I am very thankful to SS501 members who come personally to support and sent encouraging messages to me during my first performance.”

Even though SS501 members are each in different agencies, they are still in close relationship with each other. Though they are separated now, rest assured and look forward to the day where 5 of them to come back together again. For the day to come, members will definitely not use the word ‘disband’.

“A lot of people said things such as ‘One of the member was in disagreement’ ‘Someone betrayed another’. The rumor that everyone was close with each other but due to disagreement, the team was broken, is untrue. But we are not able to explain each and everything....I feel really frustrated and regretful but in a way,
I think that the misunderstanding will be cleared if next time the 5 of us come back together in one place, and I am waiting for it. For that day to come, all the members never say the word ‘disband’. We all have our own situations where it didn’t turn out as expected, so we couldn’t release an album or hold a concert immediately now. But we will work hard to be the SS501 who will do our best to entertain our fans in whichever place each of us are in (laughs).”

Heo YoungSaeng successfully made his first step as a solo singer. Owing to the fans’ love, he has planned to engage into producing his next album immediately. He will be coming back to his fans with an official album about end of this year. What would his music style next time, we are looking forward to his next transformation.

[News] Kim Hyun Joong's Solo Comeback on M! Countdown 110609

"Has anyone watched Hyun Joong's live performance on M! Countdown today?" <<< NO ONE will ever ask this kind of question because all of us have surely giggled and screamed the whole time we were watching Leader's comeback performance. He performed THREE SONGS! How great is that?! Kim Hyun Joong BREAK DOWN solo comeback DAEBAK!!



After being known as the leader of SS501, and then as an actor, since debuting some six years ago, Kim Hyun Joong is ready to embark on a new path as a solo singer.

Having released his solo mini-album “Break Down” earlier this week, Hyun Joong becomes the fourth SS501 member to do so with Kim Kyu Jong the only one not to have released a solo album.

His title track, “Break Down“, was composed by Steven Lee and is classified as a ’south urban dance track’ which combines powerful electric brass and synth sounds to create an energetic track right from its beginning phases, and has a dynamic choreography to ensure a strong performance.
He also performed “Please“, which is a pop R&B track, featuring a beautiful piano melody and a heavy orchestra arrangement that brings out the sadness of the lyrics and “Let Me Go” as well.



Kim Hyunjoong released his first solo mini-album titled "Please" last week on June 7th, and now the leader of SS501 made his comeback to the M! Countdown stage tonight. The singer released two very different tracks and music videos titled "Break Down" and "Please" and has performed both in his three-track comeback stage tonight.

Kim Hyunjoong had an extravagant entrance with his opening song "Let Me Go". Demonstrating multiple sides to his artistry, fans caught a glimpse of the softer and more emotional side in his performance of "Please", while his "Break Down" performance showcased his hard-hitting up-tempo side. Earlier this week, the singer had his showcase in Seoul and was met with great success as fans witnessed his long-awaited return to the stage.

Tonight's comeback stage proved to be another success for Kim Hyunjoong.

[Article] Hyun Joong Talks About Trainee Days

Aww~ I just love how Hyun Joong as well as the boys, talk about SS501 and the good old days. ^^ This was from last night's Golden Fishery :D


[NEWS] Kim Hyun Joong Talks About Trainee Days

On June 8th, Kim Hyun Joong guested on MBC’s “Knee-Drop Guru” and talked about his training period before his debut with SS501.

He began by describing the strict environment of his former label, DSP Media: “It’s a company that makes you fend for yourself. As a trainee, I’d clean up the recording room in the morning and run 20 laps around the field. Every day, they’d add another lap until I reached 40. We also had to eat fast.”

He continued, “When we were being trained in singing, eight of us would be in one small room and had to sing together. It was hard to concentrate on what you were singing.”

MC Kang Ho Dong commented, “Your CEO at the time is known for being quite the scary man.” Kim Hyun Joong replied, “He was hard, but we said everything we wanted to. Even if he said, ‘What do you mean you need dancers, it’s just extra expenses,’ we would still say that we needed dancer hyungs and he’d listen and comply. He was like a father, and he would call me son. He thought cutely of me.”

When asked about SS501’s rivals at the time of their debut, he mused, “We were half confident in our ability to stand on equal footing with TVXQ. We thought of sneakily going from behind and then bursting out in front. It wasn’t necessarily a plan, but just the atmosphere at the time. The public naturally set it up like that for us.”

Reflecting back to his debut on June 8th, 2005, Kim Hyun Joong concluded, “After our first broadcast, I teared up. I think it’s because of that sense of achievement and because I remembered everything we had gone through as trainees.”

I'M BACK! :)

Hello everyone! Some of you might be wondering where I was these past few days because I'm not updating and posting anymore. Well, this will be a great way to explain it. At first, the real reason was that our very poor connection won't cooperate with me. I've been opening this, but I can't post. Connection is too slow. I gave up. I told myself I would post something first, like an excuse entry for being hiatus for a while, but again, the connection failed on me. So, I just went hiatus without letting readers know. If you follow me on Twitter, @rayeyxoxo , you would see that I told everyone about this. When I was about to end the hiatus, I got busy. Like, SUPER BUSY. I'm an incoming college freshman that's why there are so many stuff I needed to prepare. I had no time to post an update. So, I planned on re-opening this blog yesterday, KIM HYUN JOONG's birthday. But forgive my lazy brain. I was watching videos I missed yesterday. Kekeke~ 





PS: Today is the official release of Leader's solo album, BREAK DOWN. The MV is also out. Please support him by buying the songs, music videos, and the album LEGALLY. ^__^
