Triple S Philippines Celebrates SS501’s 10th Anniversary with a Subway Ad in Seoul

Last June 8, 2015, KPOP boyband’s SS501 marked their 10th anniversary since their debut. The group has five members: Kim Hyun Joong, Heo Young Saeng, Kim Kyu Jong, Park Jung Min and Kim Hyung Jun. They are currently in their solo careers after they left DSP Media in June 2010. Two are currently in mandatory 2-year military service (Hyun Joong and Jung Min), two had finished (Kyu Jong and Young Saeng), and one left to enlist (Hyung Jun).

We, Triple S Philippines, which is the first and largest fanclub of SS501 here in the Philippines made a small gift (also expensive) to the boys with a subway advertisement in Seoul that was located in Dongdaemun Station Line 1 near Stair L and was up for the entire month of June 2015.

All the hard work of the fanclub staff from raising the fund and communicating with an agent in Seoul online (which was really hard) was worth it when we saw it was finally up days before June. And it made us all more happy when 2 members very much appreciated it with Kim Hyung Jun first posting it in his IG and then Kim Kyu Jong posting it in his IG and FB page.

This project was also recognized and posted by CI ENT which Kim Hyung Jun is under and now Heo Young Saeng is under with after his discharge from mandatory service this July, and former DSP Japan President Koh Hwaeun which has been supporting the boyss all this time.

[Official MV] KIM HYUN JOONG 김현중 ‘Unbreakable’ M/V (feat.Jay Park)

Great video!!! Indeed as KIM HYUN JOONG said, look forward to his Korean comeback as it will blow our minds and it will be a bomb!! The almost 2 years of waiting is worth it my dear Leader’ssi.

Traditional Korean culture meets the present. Another reinvention by KIM HYUN JOONG not sticking to being pretty…a new TANNED, MANLY, SEXY look! Those muscles of training for months. Plus this feature another hot man, Jay Park, what a tandem. Mr. Park and Mr. Kim!

Horse = Car. B-boy = Pungmul (Korean folk music tradition). Cow = Lamborghini. Traditional Korean tattoos. Old meets New.

Choreography. The world renowned choreographer, Lyle Beniga, did a great job once again just like in ‘Breakdown’ in 2011 and as always great music by award winning, Steven Lee.

Kudos to all who were behind this #UNBREAKABLE track and MV (this was worth 300million won – approx 11million php), and to “ROUND 3” album!!! Daebak #김현중!

‘Round 3’ mini-album will be released ONLINE on 07/22 and physical album on 07/29.

[Personal] Happy 501 Day!

HAPPY 501 DAY (though I’m late because  it’s already May 2)! 🙂 A very memorable day for both SS501 and Triple S, and this special day celebration started since 2005.

Idol groups come and go on to work on their solo careers and that is happened with my fave Korean boyband, SS501. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a true-green-blooded Triple S and was sad after they went solos but though I have been longing for them to reunite, I’m happy with what is happening in their solo careers, with improvement in their crafts from music to acting and with this,  I have been supporting them individually with of course my bias Kim Hyun Joong, which I support him more. 🙂

All members had been reassuring for a reunion and I will believe and hold on to their words, but I know it will not happen in the near future and I will be patiently be waiting for that. Trust and believe. Triple S and SS501 fighting! ♥♥♥

Here are some sweet tweets from Kyu Jong, Young Saeng, Hyung Jun and their former manager Hyeong Jin who is now the manager of Kyu Jong and Young Saeng in B2M.

Tweet translation by xiaochu from Quainte501.

I am reposting a very good read for Triple S from my friend Gwyn from her blog.

“we’ll be there when they world stops turning. we’ll be there when the storm is through. in the end we wanna be standing at the beginning with you.” – At The Beginning; Donna Lewis & Richard Marx

+++++

To my dear sisters and brothers in the Triple S community:

Happy 501 Day!

I know we’ve been going through a lot of trials at present and though I’m still confident that we remain as strong and as bonded as ever, I know our numbers (as a whole) are dwindling and that there are many who have chosen to move on; lost hope, new eye candies, new fandom, I can’t be too sure; but know that I would not judge you. No, not at all.

It’s an acceptable fact. People let go of their beliefs and move on all the time, but like I said, I’m confident that there are still those, like me, who continue to hang on irregardless of what other people say or do.

I’m glad to call you my sisters and brothers in the fandom!

You might be wondering what the lyrics above are for. You see, when Kyu Jong and Young Saeng visited the Philippines last February 2011, we recorded this song as a presentation and ‘thank you’ to them, especially since I know we can all relate to what the song as a whole means. If you haven’t heard the song, please check our presentation here.

No matter what they do, as well as the decisions they’ll make, we’ll be standing beside them for as long as we can… until forever if it reaches that point. In everything they’ve gone through and faced, everything that will come to them in the future, we have stayed right by them and I know we’ll continue to do so.

At this point, as we celebrate another 501 Day, I only have 5 wishes.

  1. Let’s not give up on SS501. It’s disappointing to hear a lot of Triple S say that they’ve lost hope for a comeback. But that’s not it for me anymore. As long as they’re still good friends and treat each other as brothers and as long as they won’t forget that they’ll forever be SS501, that’s what matters to me now. If they ever choose to stand on stage together as 5 members of SS501, then that could be a very good bonus. But even then, with that mindset, there’s still this longing in my heart to see them on stage again, together and it will never disappear because I’m a Triple S and I believe in SS501. You should, too.
  2. Let’s not give up on Triple S. This family has been my refuge for almost 7 years now and I always defend my being a Triple S with all of me to those who ever say anything against us. There are people who decline ever becoming a Triple S and that saddens me; to deny what one held on to just because of present situations and the influence of others. We should be better than that. Shouldn’t these situations make us even closer to each other? Shouldn’t we prove our strength and togetherness even more? Just look at Shinhwa Changjo, waiting for 4 long years, but they made it and now Shinhwa’s comeback became even more meaningful because SHCJ’s continued to show their unity. I know we can too… Can we?
  3. Let’s always be “the most peaceful fan club” ever. A lot of people, since the establishment of individual member fan clubs, have been trying to break Triple S apart and many are fighting back, but please, let’s not fight back… Let’s not fight at all. As long as we know that Henecia, Y.E.S, ThanKYU and Junus is still pretty much Triple S, I think there’s nothing to fight about. Let the others try to put you down. Let them try to break us off but let’s ignore them… for when SS501 gets back together, I know we can show them all how strong a unit we all still are and how breaking us apart is a feat, impossible to succeed on. ❤
  4. Let’s continue to support each member. Right now, each member is doing well on their own and we should be happy for all of them and their achievements. They’ve grown so much in the past couple of years, we should be immensely proud. If the present situation taught me anything at all, it’s that there is no such thing as biases. Right now, I’m just set to following all 5 members with no favoritism and focus and though it’s hard, considering that they’re all doing a bunch of things all the same time, my heart knows that this is what I should do; that I should support them because I’m a Henecia, a Y.E.S, a ThanKYU, a JUNUS and a JungMin-fan, as much as I’m a Triple S and to support them is what I’m set to do. I hope it’s the same thing for you. :3
  5. Let’s continue to believe in SS501 + Triple S = Forever As One. I’m sure, our men think of this too and I know they will never forget us in all the years we stood together and the love we’ve all shared over the years. Don’t ever believe otherwise. Like what their song for us, 완.두.콩 (Green Peas) states, 그 누가 뭐라해도, 변하지 않는 한 가지, 우리의 사랑은 영원히 함께 해 (and anyone can say whatever, unchanging one and the same, our love will be together forever).

I believe in all of us as much as I believe in what SS501 and S.T.01 stands for. We will be together forever, our SS501 oppas know that too… so put that to heart.

SS501, FIGHTING.

TRIPLE S, FIGHTING.

I love you all.

Love,

Gwyn {imonebrat-Triple S Philippines}

Park Jung Min’s store has now a wide variety of goods. He does not only offer Korean made labels but offers branded labels such as Abercrombie&Fit, Gap, Coach, Hollister, Coach and more.

Directions to Kim Hyung Jun’s and Allen Kim(KiBum)’s HnB Company

For SS501 fans, HnB is the name that Hyung Jun’ssi and Ki Bum’ssi use if they’re working a song together, but in September 2010, they ventured into a character business with their company called, HnB Company, making themselves CEOs. Their famous characters are Piro Piro and Siro Siro.

So when in Seoul, fans should visit HnB Company and buy something Piro Piro or Siro Siro there. We might have the chance to see KiBum, their Eomma, or Hyung Jun there.

Highlights of My SS501 Boys Solo Careers in 2011 and 2012 Good Start

When SS501 members did not renew their contract with DSP and went solos, we Triple S were sad. But now, with them pursuing their solo careers, we have seen their growth as an artist and as a person. I couldn’t be more happy about that, but I do miss them together as one so much.

Last year, all members released their solo albums and had successful individual projects. So here were the highlights of their activities and the good start of 2012 of their solo careers.

KIM HYUN JOONG, my bias, of course is the most successful. After successfully releasing two Korean mini-albums last year, Breakdown and Lucky and winning several awards last year with Best Solo Male artist in MAMA 2011, successfully debuted his first solo Japanese album Kiss Kiss/Lucky Guy last February 2012 setting a record in the Oricon daily chart on the first day of release with 72,000 copies sold, highest amongst foreign artists since 2009, and making it Gold with 100,000 copies plus sold after a week. He had a fanmeet to commemorate his Japan debut at Yokohama Arena attended by 20,000 fans with the profits donated to charity. He also became the second Korean artist to endorse a Japan cosmetic brand, Slim Beauty House. Now, it has been announced that he will have a solo world tour to kick off third week of September in Seoul with 20 cities worldwide, with about 30~40 concerts, a 6-month project, ending in Busan in 2013.

HEO YOUNG SAENG had a successful joint Asian tour with Kyu Jong, Kim Kyu Jong & Heo Young Saeng and Story.  His debut solo mini-album, Let It Go, was released in May 2011. In November and December, he made his theatrical musical debut in The Three Muskeeters, which he won praises on his performances. He had been casted in the KBS sitcom I Need a Fairy which will kick-off on February 27th at KBS2.  It has been reported that he will be joining Immortal Song 2. There are reports that he is also preparing for his second solo album.

KIM KYU JONG after the Asian tour with Young Saeng also debuted as a solo artist in September 2011 with his mini-album, Turn Me On. He made his musical debut in Goong playing the lead role of Crown Prince Lee Shin, which he was greatly loved by the audience and had stages both in Korea and in Japan. He made his drama debut as a support cast along with his love intereset F(x) Luna in the TV Chosun cable drama Saving Mrs. Go Bong Shil, which his acting had been getting attention.

PARK JUNG MIN debuted as solo artist with his mini-album, Not Alone, last January 2011. He was casted in a musical Bonds Of Boys in Japan as an exchange student. He also was in a Japanese mini-drama, Love Song in August. His management, CNR, a sister company of Angie Cai’s Comic Ritz, who is the mother of Taiwan dramas, casted him in a Taiwanese drama, Fondant Garden, along with Taiwanese actors, Jian Man Shu and Kingone Wang. He stayed in Taiwan for more than six months to shoot and had been patiently learning to speak Chinese. The drama premiered last night and he will be going back to Korea to prepare for his next solo album.

KIM HYUNG JUN released his solo debut mini-album, My Girl, last March 2011 and signed with Avex in Japan and had a successful Japan tour. He and his brother, Kim KiBum(former UKISS member) had been doing well on their business and both hold the status as CEOs with their character business HnB Company. Their famous characters right now are Piro-Piro and Siro-Siro. He recently debuted as an actor in a KBS N cable drama, Glowing She, which the pilot episode caught attention the most with his topless bed scene, shocking fans since he is the maknae(youngest) of the group. It also has been getting good ratings for a cable drama and is set to premier in Japan this March.

So much for that, yeah my boys are having a good start this year. Looking forward for more activities and as what we always say, we your fans will be patiently waiting for a group comeback. TRUST and BELIEVE! SS501-LOVE.

Happy Birthday Kim Kyu Jong!

Today is SS501’s Eternal Center, Kim Kyu Jong’s birthday! Last night at the eve of his birthday, we made it #3 trending worldwide and hopefully tonight with the official trending schedule at 8-10PM Phil time, we will make it to #1 worldwide.

He tweeted last night, @2kjdream: I had a good time with my family and also gratefully received gifts pretties sent. ThanKYU! ThanKYU with my heart. ThanKYU for giving me so much happiness, smile & memory. I’ll give you more.^^

Happy Birthday Kyu Jong’sshi! ThanKYU for the love, sincerity, sweetness, and smiles. ThanKYU for keeping us together! You are much loved by your pretties! ♥♥♥
