Netizens Are Divided With Kim HyunJoong’s Return With Drama “When Time Stopped”
Kim HyunJoong is a famous Korean celebrity. For those of you who might don’t know, he is part of SS501 and was the lead role in the hit drama “Boys Over Flowers” and “Playful Kiss”.
Back in 2014, he was accused of assaulting and injuring his pregnant girlfriend leading to miscarriage. A lot of news was published announcing various lawsuits and different versions. Kim HyunJoong was fined for hurting her but “he has no intention of hurting her but only to perform martial arts”. In September 2015, his baby was born. In February 2018, the girlfriend was fined for attempting fraud. Lastly, in March 2017, he was charged for DUI.
The acting-dol is back to the small screen since “Inspiring Generation” (2014) and the end of his military service with the fantasy romantic drama “When Time Stopped” to air on October 24th on KBS W. The drama is close to its premiere and the first teaser and poster were recently released.
Many fans were waiting for his return but not everyone seems to welcome him back. There are mainly three opinions about him being cast and making his return to the small screen.
First, scandal or not, some netizens don’t like his acting and will not watch because of this.
Second, because of the scandal, some netizens don’t want to see him on TV. Some people say that they cannot understand why he got cast in a romantic drama with “such a life”. Some of the others comments are “Wow his return is possible? Hahaha”, “The production staff that cast him and the people that overlooked this are incredible. If it was me, I would never be able to act, his co-lead is incredible”, “I will never watch”, “Why someone like him appears”, etc. Most of them expressed their anger and were surprised at his casting.
Third, some netizens – and especially international fans – are eagerly waiting for his return. Kim HyunJoong has a huge fan base that supports his new drama. Some commented “I can’t wait”, “I love you”, “Fighting”, “I was waiting for your return”, etc. Many fans show their support to the actor.
