Kim Hyun Joong’s Jaksal Chicken Restaurant, Ilsan Branch/Directions

Last October 20, 2011, a Jaksal Chicken outlet was opened in Ilsan which is being managed by Kim Hyun Joong’s family.

Here is a fancam during the opening. Kim Hyun Joong was present and there were many fans because he had a performance at Music Core which MBC is just a walking distance to Western Dome mall where Jaksal is located.

Fan accounts said that KHJ’s mom is really nice especially to the fans. There had been fan accounts also of KHJ going straight to this branch upon touch down of his flight from Japan, in November after his Japan tour and this February after his solo debut there. Such a sweet son, missing his mom.

I think every Kim Hyun Joong’s fan like me must make it a point to visit this store. You can meet Eomeoni and may be Ahbeoji greeting at the entrance or Kim Young Joong, KHJ’s hyung helping serve the food. But the best scenario would be KHJ serving you!!! wahh… And don’t forget to ask for a membership card as a souvenir with KHJ’s face on it.

Kim Hyun Joong’s beautiful and kind mom.

Kim Hyun Joong’s older brother, Young Joong.

I couldn’t find a recent picture of KHJ’s father, so I posted the Kim’s family picture taken about seven years ago before his brother left to study in America. He might be greeting you at the restaurant.

The street right before this is the street you should go down and where the restaurant is one your left side.
