►►Kim Hyun Joong in deep scandal for attending ex-president Jeon Doo Hwan’s birthday
I read the DSP’s letter about this yesterday but did NOT understand a thing. But this post from Sookyeong is especially helpful…and OMG Kim Hyun Joong is apparently in big trouble with the netizens for doing this and I feel so sorry for the poor boy :-(
SS501’s member Kim HyunJoong is currently mad due to the controversy that is encompassing him in Korea. This controversy of this matter involves the ex-president of Korea, Jeon DooHwan.
What is it exactly that the netizens and citizens are making a fuss about? KBites will lay out the facts.
In Korea on the 18th, the news reported that Kim HyunJoong had gone to the birthday celebration for the former president of the Republic of Korea. This could seem like a simple birthday celebration, however, the fact is that it wasn’t
Many of you guys may not know about the reputation Jeon DooHwan has in Korea. Many of you guys might not also know that some Koreans are just waiting patiently for his death. Jeon DooHwan was the president that caused one of the most notorious act in Korea, also called the “Gwangju Democratization Movement.” Before, Jeon DooHwan had pressured Koreans under the military power, basically making sure that everyone was following him. However, in Gwangju, several hundreds of citizens gathered together and formed a “movement” for the democracy in the government. Unfortunately, the armed forces were too much for the weak citizens to handle, and along with the movement, several hundreds of the citizens were brutally massacre in 2 days, causing a short period of war between the citizens of Korea. This wasn’t his only mistake, but one of the mistakes he is critized the most for.
Jeon DooHwan celebrated his eightieth birthday in Korea, and a suprising guest came on to the scene, and it was no other than Kim HyunJoong. When the news first came on to the scene, it was said that DSP Media had no idea Kim HyunJoong had attended this event. However, it was revealed that he had actually been there at the event and DSP announced once again that HyunJoong had gone there with someone else that knew the former president. DSP Media also made sure to emphasize the point that Kim HyunJoong had only been there “for a while.”
According to one photographer that was present in the birthday scene, he revealed that Kim HyunJoong waited in line along with the other guest to greet the president, and eventually ended up meeting the former president and shaking his hand as well. The controversy continues with Kim HyunJoong’s journal entry he posted. The journal entry will not be posted here, however, HyunJoong was mad about all the response that came to him and he continued on about how he was taken to the birthday party and he didn’t have a choice at all.
T/N: The news had been compilied from several news articles because many of them contained false information. Information about Jeon DooHwan was directly from my parents. And at times like this, lets all support Kim HyunJoong instead of criticizing him.
DSP Entertainment released official statement regarding Hyunjoong’s presence at ex president’s party:
Hello, this is DSP
There have been lots of inquiries since yesterday evening from on and on off-line regarding Kim Hyun Joong’s article. We think at least the TripleS should know the exact circumstance of Kim Hyun Joong’s attendance at the place where the article mentioned.
The circumstance is as follows
January 18th was president Lee Ho Yeon’s birthday.
This evening, except for Jung Min, who was scheduled for filming Life Story 2010,
Hyun Joong, Gyu Jong, Young Saeng, Hyung Jun were scheduled for a dinner.
Previous to the dinner schedule, Hyun Joong was pre-scheduled for a meeting regarding a separate matter and after that he accompanied president Lee to the reserved place for dinner,
but on the way president Lee was contacted and had to stop by this place (Chun Doo Hwan’s birthday party) before moving on.
It was simply coincidental without prior intention or plan, and to be criticized for this,
Hyun Joong who is not used to negative comments seems to have hurt his feeling.
How long he stayed there, whether it was one minute or ten minutes is not what’s important.
For the people who criticize him simply for attending Chun Doo Hwan’s celebration,
we do not ask for your understanding
but we ask that you know the exact circumstance before writing your comments.
