Kim Hyun-joong expressed his thoughts about relationships and marriage.
The age of thirty doesn't seem that far to Kim Hyun-joong now, as he was born in 1986 and he's soon turning thirty himself.
We asked him about getting married. He said, "I don't think I can do it. Coming back from the military, I'll be thirty-five by then. I thought about getting married when I was younger but now I don't think I can do it. I don't think I'll be loyal to my family because I love my job too much. I'll get married only if I feel a dilemma between singing, dancing and acting".
What about relationships then? He said, "I can't lie that I won't meet people. I did have a secret relationship a year ago but now I don't. "
He explained the difference between the early and late twenties. He said, "I thought a relationship happened when two people decided they were together. But now it's not like that. There's a spark when the right person comes".
"I even thought about it when I was filming a drama. In the dramas, relationships are legal. I liked that. I liked the fact that two people in love were over once the drama was over. It was like living in a different world so that's why I was so much more attracted to the drama this time".
Kim Hyun-joong starred in the KBS 2TV drama "Inspiring Generation" and was loved greatly by Lim Soo-hyang (Gaya) and Jin Se-yeon (Kim Ok-ryeon). He said, "I had a woman who loved me and one who had a crush on me. I used to be the kind of person who loves the one that loves me first but now I think differently. I think the other one who loves me might feel greater love. It's now less suffering".
"I want to be comfortable about having a relationship. I don't want something too passionate or clingy. I would like something ordinary. I prefer eating and walking hand-in-hand rather than surprising her with flowers. I realize being ordinary is the best".
We asked if he would open his relationship to the public. He said, "I would never. It's only the girl that suffers if we break up. There's no need to give her the 'who's ex-girlfriend' when she gets married. I won't open up unless I'm getting married. I am doing this for the girl".
Meanwhile, Kim Hyun-joong is taking a break since the ending of "Inspiring Generation". He's also planning a world tour concert starting from Korea.
