The controvery on Kim Hyun Joong & Jeon DooHwan
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.

DSP media's statement
Hi everybody, this is DSP media
Since yesterday, a lot of people after reading Hyun Joong’s report, tried via many methods to enquire about this matter.
We think we should at least let TS know the entire process of Hyun Joong went to the location in the news report.
The detail is as the followings:
18 January, yesterday is CEO, Lee Ho Yeon’s birthday
That night other than Jung Min who was filming ‘Human Theatre’, we have scheduled appointment together with Hyun Joong, Kyu Jong, Young Saeng and Hyung Jun to have dinner together.
Before going to the appointment place,
Hyun Joong who originally had other schedule in the day, went to the discussion location together with the CEO,
On the way, the CEO received a call
On the way they went in for a while then left and proceed to the appointment location as scheduled.
Without any intention or planning, this incident just happened coincidently
There’s no room for choice
Hyun Joong was not used to receiving bad comments and seems to receive quite hurt by it.
Whether stay for 1 minute or 10 minute, no matter what is the situation at the moment.
Just making an issue by going or not going, although we don’t expect everybody will understand.
But we hope you should write the article after understanding the truth.
