Kim Hyun Joong—three one-syllable words that have the capacity to render grown women weak at the knees and shrieking at the top of their lungs. K-Pop singer, popular television actor, and The Face Shop ambassador, Kim stopped by Manila during the last leg of his Asian tour to fulfill every Koreanovela fan’s dream of seeing the boyish star in the flesh.
At The Face Shop press conference (where even the most closeted Korean fans were outed by their uncontained excitement), the newly blonde Kim wearing a sharply tailored suit shared some valuable beauty advice to modern Filipino men. Stating that in this day and age men shouldn’t be afraid to care more for their skin, the singer recommended a regimen composed of sunblock, BB cream, and his favorite new hydrating line E’Thym as key products to invest in.
Other interesting points raised during the meeting were questions on whether he prefers singing or acting (to which he replied, “That’s like asking a kid if he likes is mom or dad better,” what he likes best about being an international star (being able to meet his global fans, he says, of course!).
But for those of you who are wondering what he looks for in a woman, sorry girls but Mr. Joong didn’t give much away. He did say however that when it comes to the opposite sex, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Oh and a last tidbit we got out of him was that when it comes to scents— he does love the smell of coconut on a lady.
