Japan First Solo Album “UNLIMITED” Release Event :
Kim Hyun Joong (26) had a premium event in Tokyo in commemoration of the release of his first solo album in Japan, ” UNLIMITED “. Though he did not sing, but music videos of “Your Story” and “Save Today” were presented. He had an interesting talk with his guests, a self-appointed cheer leader, KABA-chan as well as Kazuko Kurosawa (female comedian).
After eleven months since his Japan debut on January 25, 2012, the first album ” Unlimited ” has eventually been released. Every song including the new three songs as well as Kiss Kiss/Lucky Guy and Oricon No.1 single ” Heat ” produced by B’z were sang in Japanese. Kim Hyun Joong talked showed his passion for the album during the talk of the event.
1/ Music video of ” Your Story ” has been released.
HJ: This is the second song I sing with band style following “Heat”. I have been enhansening this song for a long time so that I can sing it in an album someday. I have some more songs which I will sing as a band music. I would like to produce these songs in future.
2/ Where the shooting took place ? ( about “Save Today “)
HJ: It took place in the set in Korea. The idea of the concet is that we go back to the past. So I moved with the double speed of the other people, while they were walking very slowly. I would like to show it if the making video is available now. It was very hard for me to sing a song very rapidly while the music being reproduced fourfold ( He tries to show how rapid he sang )
3/ The concet of the title?
HJ: It means ” Unlimited potential in growing ” I would like to continue to grow. That is why I choose this title.
4/ How do you review this year ?
HJ : Stretching myself out at home, I asked myself ” What did I do this year ? ” (the audience burst into laughter ) I would like to spend much busier days the next year.
5/ The concept of the album ?
HJ : I put my feeling “Please do not let me go which means I do not want to lose you.” I do not want to lose this moment when you give a big love to me.
6/ What is your plan the next year?
HJ : I am going to start 2013 with Japan nation-wide tour. I also plan to release a full album in Korea. I will also show you Kim Hyun Joong as actor in the drama. I have another plan to start World tour at the end of the year. I will also release a single album in Japan. So it will be a very busy year for me. I hope that you will give me your support which will give me power when I feel tired.
