However, there are also opposing rumors that all the members of SS501 and the company have unofficially renewed the contract.

Furthermore, it is well known that Kim Hyun Joong is best friends with TVXQ’s Jaejoong. An unknown source said that there was a possibility that Kim Hyun Joong will enter Jaejoong, Micky, and Junsu’s current company.

Another source claimed that Kim Hyun Joong will leave DSP Entertainment, but will continue to be a part of SS501 and participate in their promotions and activities. This is similar to what the members of Shinhwa are doing right now. god also had a period when the members were in two different companies.

DSP Entertainment is currently trying to compromise with Kim Hyun Joong by saying that they will be fully supportive of his acting career while he is still a part of SS501.

►►[VID] Gummy releases ‘As a Man’ MV with Kim Hyun Joong and Jung Ryeo Won

Gummy is coming back strong as she releases her second MV for her new “Loveless” mini-album. Definitely have to say, there is a lot of love here in this new MV.

The “As A Man” MV follows the very compatible Kim Hyun-joong and Jung Ryeo-won as their relationship starts, develops, and grows all in a very cute and quite realistic manner.

The romance is very simple and begins with the drama cliche of being unintentionally forced to live together, but Kim Hyun-joong and Jung Ryeo-won’s chemistry is very believable, and their acting is quite endearing. ”As A Man” MV is a good illustration of that point in the relationship when someone may feel smothered and takes the love for granted.

No need to comment on Gummy’s vocals. The song speaks for itself.

►►SS501, “Further studies in Spain…can’t keep promise of releasing album”

Fans fell into the trap of April Fool lies that SS501 had came up with on April Fools’ Day.

On the 1st on their official homepage, Kim Hyun Joong has written, “On Wednesday, the 7th, I’d be going to Spain to study abroad. I have many headache problems on mind, after I sort out my thoughts for abit, I’d return”, revealing this. To this, “We are supposed to release the 501 album, but we have not even recorded for any single song, and not even a song has been produced, now my mind is in a painful state. Seems like we’re not able to keep to the promise of releasing album on May 1. Sorry” was also written. Again, “Don’t find it too puzzling to this choice, keep supporting like you’d always done so right until now. Sincerely. Without regrets to my choice, believe in it that way. Writing my final piece in the homepage” was been written in such a way.

Indeed, Heo YoungSaeng also wrote a piece with the title “Sorry” on the 1st. He wrote, “May 1 is the 501 day by right, we promised to bring about a good album and show to you all, but now, it seems like we can’t keep to that promise anymore. 5 of us are forever as one, shout it out loud like that, not something that couldn’t be stopped about. 5 years have flowed by like this, time really flies, there were really many matters which happened, lots of pleasant memories as well, those moments when we laughed, and cried together, certainly, I’d not be able to forget that in my life. I love you, and I am sorry”, which surprised the fans. However, at the end of the piece, “Today is April fools’ day? Gotcha! Sorry~” was told, after which he went into the Tok room and left this “it is an April Fool’s play”, which further proved his joke to be effective after successfully pulling off the trick.
