Cover Star

SS501's leader Kim Hyun Joong, shot a series of MVIO Fall/Winter Series which was endorsed by him. As it was summer, it was really torturing for leader Kim to wear all these thick and warm clothings. During the shooting process, Kim Hyun Joong had to change into different style of costume and acting in different roles. At one moment he would be eating cream cake happily; at another moment he would carry a suitcase and change into a young working class; and also wearing beige jacket, pulling a luggage showing the matured manly style. 6 different styles would be exclusively released in this episode of Fans magazine to show the changeable Kim Hyun Joong.

Special charm is Multi-Dimensional

Although it was a heaty summer day currently, however as the MVIO costume branding spokesperson, Kim Hyun Joong had to move a step earlier than everybody, wearing the new Fall/Winter costume to shoot a new series of photographs in the studio. Whatever styles of costume when wore on Kim Hyun Joong would be suitable, this is the main reason MVIO selected him as the spokesperson. Kim Hyun Joong once mentioned about his charm: "Whatever role that was given, just act as the role.' This characteristic was proven in the shooting process. Whether it was a formal suit, matured manly windbreaker, uniquely decent style, all could be interpreted correctly!

Wearing winter clothings in summer made leader over heat!

Under the high temperature weather and the heat of the studio lights, it had indeed made Kim Hyun Joong who was wearing the Fall/Winter series costume over heated, it was like in a sauna! However when looking at the final results of the shooting, he expressed: "I had not worn all these Fall/Winter new products before. Although the weather was very hot, and it was very exhausting during shooting, but I was very satisfied when looking at the photographs taken.' Most interesting thing was, what was he thinking in order to portray appropriately when wearing different styles of costume and interpreting different mood? The 4D-ness in Kim Hyun Joong immediately surfaced saying: "I only looked at the camera and doesn't think of anything, but maybe I am just thinking, how many sets of clothes are there for this round? How many more sets left to shoot?"

Not forgetting humour when tired~

When he was wearing the silvery gray formal suit, holding a cream cake, showing his cute expression eating the cake for the shot, suddenly, he joked to the photographer saying: "Since I am wearing so formally, please help me to take an I.D. photograph!" 4D Kim Hyun Joong surfaced again, making such request even when shooting the clothings catalog, but the photographer really fulfilled his request! During the shooting break, other than hot, it was still very hot, however he didn't relax but took the opportunity to practice his concert dance steps. Korean media interview him at the shooting location, asking about his opinion in winning the champion of 'Most wanted to kiss Male artist'? Leader Kim smile shyly and showed his humour explaining the reason of winning the champion: "Because artist like Lee Min Ho is too tall, it is too tired to kiss and can only kiss once."

Clothings that seldom wear before are the most effective style~

After become an artist, Kim Hyun Joong had to wear uncountable gorgeous stage costume not only in SS501 group but also when filming 'Boys over Flowers', acting as Yoon Ji Hoo, wearing prince-like royalty costumes. As the spokesperson for MVIO, he had to wear many different style of costume during each season when shooting for new line of clothings, showing his different charms. In order to shoot for the endorsement, he had to wear many sets of clothings, his most anticipated clothing style are styles which he seldom wears. He believed that wearing clothings which he seldom wears would be able to show some surprisingly charming effect.

Loved to dress up even before debut!

After becoming an artist that need to wear glamorously infront of everybody, does his wearing style changed a lot? He said: "Before debut, I loved to dress up, loved wearing long boots, and also loved to buy clothes. However, after debut, it was completely opposite. Now I only like clothes which are comfortable. For example, wearing shorts, normal shirt, and matched with caps. Recently when rehearsing for concert, I would wear sports shoes, practice costume and bring a towel, the dressing style looked like the uncle who sell ice cream (smile)." His description made me think of ~ Yoon Ji Hoo who once spoke in mandarin to Geum Jan Di: "Miss, please buy an ice cream!' If there is really such a charming uncle selling ice cream, the daily sales figure must be shocking!
