[EXCLUSIVE] CNBLUE Kang Min Hyuk Fan Meeting in Hong Kong + Fancam

Daily Kpop News - Mon, 11/24/2014 - 21:57

On Sunday, 23rd of November, the drummer of the famous boy band group, CN BLUE, had a first-ever local fan meet in Sunshine City Plaza, Ma On Shan, organized by the SMILES Production. 

Kang Min-Hyuk is also locally famous due to his role of ‘Yoon Chan-Young’, a top-of-class high school student, in the popular Korean drama, ‘The Heirs’, also starring Kim Woo-Bin, Lee Min-Ho, and Park Shin-Hye.

Upon his arrival on the stage, he managed to say some basic Cantonese phrases to his fans, such as “Hello” and “I love you Hong Kong”, which led his fans to scream louder. 

“Thank you for coming” Min-Hyuk said, “it feels completely different to be here on my own today, I hope the members (of CN BLUE) were here with me.” 

He also told his fans about how nervous he is to have his first-ever fan meet on his own in Hong Kong, but he feels happy to be receiving so much warm support from his local fans. 

When asked about his usual schedule in Christmas, he replied that he usually spends it with other members, either going out for a movie or a nice dinner. For this year, he believes he will have a great warm Christmas because of all the love he received from Hong Kong.

The star couldn’t help but to sweat—literally—due to the heat of the atmosphere, the shopping mall was undoubtedly packed with his fans from all type of nationalities and age-range. 

Min-Hyuk also told his fans that he doesn’t usually receive special Christmas gifts, and that CN BLUE usually does Christmas concerts on the day, which makes it the special Christmas gift for him, personally. 

The drummer also played many games with his fans, and gave hearty hugs to those who have participated. The fan meeting concluded with a press conference followed by a signing event. See below for a translated transcript of his interview during the press conference:
Q (MC): How many times have you been to Hong Kong? How do you feel about Hong Kong?
A (Kang Min-Hyuk): I have been in Hong Kong many times for concerts and showcases. In fact, I already came to Hong Kong once this year for the <Can’t Stop> Tour. I always feel strong sense of passion from our Hong Kong fans, and even today the heated atmosphere due to our fan’s enthusiasm made me literally sweat as if I have just finished a performance.

Q: You have been to Hong Kong many times, is there a place where you would like to visit in particular in Hong Kong?
A: I would love to go Soho sometime. I like small antique-looking interior design products, and I’ve heard there is a street that sells antique furniture in Soho, so I’d like to visit there for shopping.

Q: How about a particular food that you would like to try in Hong Kong?
A: I already had this for lunch, but dimsum and egg tarts are really good here in Hong Kong. Egg tarts in Hong Kong are really smooth. I’ve also tried mango pudding, and it was really good as well. 
Q: Is there a specific role that you would like to try for acting?
A: I hope to play various different roles because I am still young. But I don’t have a preference of specific role right now, so I just want to adventure in different roles as time comes. 
Q: Since you are here when Christmas is just around the corner, do you see any difference between Christmases in Hong Kong and Korea?
A: I have never been in Hong Kong for Christmas, but in Korea people usually spend it with their loved ones. I probably have to come to Hong Kong for Christmas in order to really answer the question. 
Q: You should come back in another month then it’ll be Christmas.
A: I don’t know if I can say this, but my family is coming to visit Hong Kong this time.
Q: With whom and how would you like to spend this Christmas?
A: I think Christmas is meant to be warm, so I would like to spend it with my family or my fans. But it feels like I am already spending a great Christmas here.
Q: How are your Hong Kong fans’ impressions to you?
A: They are all lovely, passionate, and have a great sense of fashion. 

Q: When is your next album release and concert schedule?
A: The members are already writing new songs, and if good songs are made then we are probably going to release it sometime next year. Nothing is confirmed at this moment though, but we are working hard to repay the love and support we received from our latest album, <Can’t Stop>, so please stay tuned with us until the next album. There is no concert schedule that is confirmed at the moment as well.
Q: Are you thinking of bringing back any presents to Korea for the other members?
A: I want to bring egg tarts for them, but it tastes better when it is warm, so maybe I need to find another option. Do you have any suggestion?
Q: What about mango pudding?
A: Sounds good. I might actually bring that back. 
Q: Do you have any unforgettable experience during concert?
A: We always have unforgettable experience in every performance we do because of our fans. Although it wasn’t a performance, today’s Christmas event is also going to be an unforgettable experience for me.
Q: You spoke Cantonese earlier, are you thinking of continuing to study Cantonese or Chinese?
A: I am still studying, I tried to speak some Cantonese earlier, but my goal is to show off my Chinese skills in our next concert. They say my accent is good, but I will have to study harder.
Q: Is there any specific Christmas present you would like to receive?
A: I have gotten it already today [laughs].

Highlights: “Birth of a Beauty” Episode 8

Soompi - Mon, 11/24/2014 - 19:29

Birth of a Beauty” continues with comedy relief. I am glad there is some character development and I still remain hopeful this show doesn’t go into makjang territory. There is some progress on Sa Ra‘s (Han Ye Seul) revenge and we’re moving on with the beauty’s growing feelings for Tae Hee (Joo Sang Wook). Aside, Han Min Hyeok (Han Sang Jin) is taking over Winner’s Group by ousting Tae Hee’s grandmother out of the company. Here are our top five moments from this episode:

1. Couple!

After discovering Tae Hee’s psychological results, Sa Ra was disappointed after hearing his answer about not loving her. After being teased by Sa Ra’s resolve about discovering Tae Hee’s true feelings, the genius counters her sly gags by pulling off his pants for dry cleaning with the idea of seeing him embarrassed. Smooth!

2. Celebrity!

Thanks to her food obsession, Sa Ra becomes a social media phenomenon. She was filmed on camera several times about her eating her meals very well. Combined with her pretty looks, Sa Ra is suited to be the perfect candidate for a judge position on a culinary program of HBS… until Han Min Hyeok embarks on a personal quest to find his beauty at all costs.

3. Kidnapping!

Kang Joon (Jung Gyu Woon) is flipping out during his date with Sa Ra when he receives a threatening text message on his phone from Sa Geum Ran. Of course, this joyful venture is staged by Sa Ra and her partner, Tae Hee. They capture Kang Joon and torment him until the poor guy passes out from exhaustion.

4. Panic!

Tae Hee was about to meet his biological grandmother after twenty years of absence. Unfortunately, the elder is arrested by the police and learns she is framed by Min Yeok’s family. On top of that, Tae Hee is forced watching his grandmother being escorted by police officers while experiencing a panic attack. The genius is rescued and tended by Sa Ra. We then learn Tae Hee is suffering from a Broken Heart syndrome since his painful childhood.

5. Busted!

Chae Yeon (Wang Ji Hye) discovers Sa Ra’s true identity by asking her brother, Ji Hoon, about Tae Hee’s relationship with her rival. The surgeon cracks under pressure and reveals to Chae Yeon that Sa Geum Ran was his patient three months ago for reconstructive surgery. The evil witch finally deduces Sa Ra is Sa Geum Ran in disguise.

Thoughts:

I didn’t expect the plot to be moving so quickly. Lee Kang Joon is about to be arrested for homicide of his wife, Sa Geum Ran, thanks to the evidence gathered from the kidnapping scene. I’m so glad Chae Yeon is having a taste of her own medicine. Feeling excluded from the in-laws, she is going through the same humiliation Geum Ran unjustly received before the attempted murder. Sa Ra is enjoying it! As for Min Hyeok, his motives are shown to be really one dimensional: taking over Winner Group and finding Sa Ra for fame! I just wish there is more into his character when Tae Hee will be competing against him for the chairman position.

It was sad when Geum Ran’s mother was taken away to a psychiatric institution for the insane by Kang Joon. If the husband is bound to be sent behind bars and is the only person knowing the grandmother’s whereabouts, I wonder how Sa Ra will find her. With Chae Yeon knowing the beauty’s identity, this will be very interesting as the story is switching its main antagonist.

Of course, let’s not forget this moment we have been all waiting for!
