Kim Hyun Joong, “Having An Older Girlfriend isn’t that Bad”

In an interview with OBS TV, Kim Hyun Joong expressed, “After being coupled with Hwang Bo in We Got Married, my ideal woman criteria has changed.”

According to Kim Hyun Joong, while SS501 was in Japan for work, Hwang Bo also went to Japan for personal reasons. She found her way to SS501 dorm in Japan and displayed her awesome culinary skills, preparing a scrumptious dinner for all the members, making them feel very touched.

Kim Hyun Joong also expressed his gratitude towards Hwang Bo actions and revealed, “In the past, I always thought that my girlfriend should be of the same age or younger than me. But through We Got Married program, I realised that having an older girlfriend isn’t that bad afterall.”

When asked if he intends on getting a girlfriend, Hyun Joong replied, “After breaking up with my ex-girlfriend, I haven’t found anyone yet. I am currently very busy with my work in Japan and Korea. I only want to focus on my work right now and have no intentions of dating.”

  1. whoa! tnx..a bunch for translating^^

    yes, HJ, i know what you mean, how can you date when youre married, RIGHT?! lol


  2. THANK U COOLSMURF!!! personal reasons? is this different from the WGM filming in Japan? or is there really a WGM filming in Japan? Unnie, can’t stay away from ur 4D husband? haha!!! i just absolutely love Joongbo couple! JOONGBO IS LOVE!!!!

  3. LOL!
    i thought i was mistaken about the ‘winnie’ outfit. but still very cute.
    i just can’t wait to see the episode coming up with them. impatiently waiting for sure. 😛
    hwangbo unni & hyun joong/4D oppa hwaiting! 🙂

  4. of course he’s not interested in dating… his buin will get mad.. L0L *-*
    HyunBo fightingg!!!
    thanks for posting this awesome article coolsmurf.. u’re the best!!

  5. haha. well, i gotta be here.
    Thanks so much coolsmurf!
    Hyunjoong-Hwangbo love never fail to make me fall in absolute universe of blissfulness….haha…
    lol. what does he mean by his criteria for ideal woman has changed? i thought that he’s always been into older woman….so i guess i’m wrong…..
    or maybe his criteria just changed to……. Hwang+Bo
    hahaha…ignore me. i’m crazy.
    well, i’m rooting for this couple so badly, hope they’d continue to surprise their fans with more n more ‘good news’ haha. this news has made me so happy.
    Thanks again coolsmurf.

  6. Ofcourse he can’t date …that would be totally inappropiate …cuz hes married ..:P
    But really that was freaking sweet

  7. Hwang Buin was so pretty. She is all rounded (circle) women…can cook..can knit…can sew…can open bottle drink…..can carry heavy…etc..etc..hahaha…aja.hwang buin you are my heroin…sarangheyo

  8. Waaaaa

    The pictures above is soooooooooo kawai..
    This couple really make me become fangirly and have the type of ‘girly’ feelings. While AlShin give me an ultimate process of a real/authentic on how a love blossom this couple make me turn to become fangirl’y’.

    That is so sweet of them. Hwang Bo of course went to Japan as schedule as one of WGM scenes as a surprise and without the knowledge of Hyun Joong. Hwang Bo is so special. She can do almost everything…

    As Hyun Joong said that he didnt prepared to be in a serious relationship I think it is a safe mode to not enter himself into any speculation. I found JoongBo is really cute and lovable but for them to be a real couple is questanable, not because they are not attracted to each other ( they are obviously are! Hwang Bo has teared her eyes out few times already.) and not because the age difference; Hyun Joong has clearly stated in CTP talk, that he didn’t understand why someone who in love can’t be together even when they in love just because of status differences etc. Hyun Joong is obviously will protect his loved one when he found one. At this times, when he is on a tight commitment and in a state of not prepared to enter a relationship then it is a safeguard for him to say that he is in the intention for dating. But hey ya! Love comes unpredictable. Once love come around the corner no one can deny anything.

    Let’s the times decide for them!

    JoongBo, all the best…<3

  9. Was Hyun Joong in a Pooh Bear Suit? I find it odd that the first thing that came to my mind when i saw these pics was that from the neck down, it seemed that he was wearing some kind of Winnie the Pooh bear suit, and he just reluctantly took off the head suit while taking the paparrazzi pics with Hwang Bo. Does anybody find this similarity or is it just me? Anyway they are a cute couple to watch, More POWER to them.

  11. lol
    i don’t get why huynjoong is in a winne the pooh suit but hey it looks soooo cute on him though!!
    they really are my favorite couple on the show -after Anbi- !
    i wish them all the best !

  12. woww that’s so sweet! did they make a clip of this at all? haha. they’re the funniest couple! i love how cool hwang bo is, and she’s really pretty no matter what some people think.. and i love hyun joong’s naive sweet innocence haha.

  13. hehe.. out of all the couples, im very interested on how these two will do

    theyre so funny
    HB HJ AJA!

  14. i like this coople since i saw the WGM program. i think they are looking good in couple relationship than just be a friend.hwangbo u look great in WGM.hyun joong u look cute also.both of u are great couple.have the wedding might be the one n only between both of u.aja…..aja…….fighting……. sarangheyo

  15. piolo pascual an award winning actor in the phulippines was noted by the known columnist lolit solis to be gay . the sofitel issue was partly true the mistake there was that it was not sam milby but another award winning actor in the name f coco martin

  16. ngayon mo lan\g ba alam yan anna jane posequit , alam na yan ng lahat . piolo pascual is gay tanga na lang ang hindi naniniwala .

  17. it is sad to know that on other parts of the countries they have uber good looking guys like kim hyun joong of korea , nicholas teo of malaysia , jerry yan of taiwan , then sa philippines isang piolo pascual lang kaya nga hindi umaasenso ang pilipinas dahil pumapatol sa isang bakla .

  18. aww…wouldn’t it be cool if i were his girlfriend…muahahaXD…even if i were his ex-girlfriend i would still feel pleased…

  19. i luv him
    i have pics of him all over my room! lol
    dang it!
    i wanna be his gf!
    luv luv luv him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Hyun Joong. okay i may call u oopa since u r older than me. wel! i really like ur attitude. u r really a tough guy as far as i’m concerned. i know u r very hard working among ur team members. thats the best quality to be possessed by a successful actor or singer. u r really handsome. i dont need to mention again as everyone knows that. at first i dont like ss501, bt one day i bought a cd cassette n from that very moment i realised that this is it. as i’m also a singer in a band bt its not publicly announced we’re trying hard. i got a lot of inspiration from u hyun joong as a leader. i hope i can be a better leader like u. gud luck oopa. rather call hyun joong oopa. bye. sarang heyo n u got ways to go. FiGHtIng!

  76. Hi I am sara from Iran I like Kim Hyun Jung and very Trfdarshm hope one day I could visit her. If someone e-mail address of Kim Hyun Jung s gonna send her my email I appreciate her Shmayn email me (Sara. wanted30 @ yahoo. com

  77. hi i’am clarice i really like kim hyung joong and jung so min love team but i will continue supporting hj in getting married with other girl but honestly i’am disappointed because hj marrying other girl cause i’am hoping that jung so min and hyung joong is better to get married…

  78. A woman cooks for a bunch of guys and they melt like butter in a frying panxDnothing new. Basically this guy is saying he likes older women because this one lady was pretty and cooked the food his momma makes, but better. Anyone can cook. He’s basing this off of a meal so I wouldn’t take him liking older women to heart- he just liked the food.

  79. They should come back on tv!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you soo much Kim Hyun Jooong Oppa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. Having and older girlfriend is good. They have more experience! Other guys were asking me how I was doing it. I was very mature for my age.

  81. i was able to watch We Got Married, and Hwang Bo is really an ideal girl friend. she can do a lot of things like cooking, weaving, and very creative. no wonder our leader might consider an elder woman for her next relationship. 😉

  82. all i want is hkj, must reveal honestly to the world that his capable of loving someone. other stars reveal their g.f to the public. is he ashamed that he find an olderwomen to be love? all speculation will stop if his courages enough to reveal it.I believe he knows how to protect the woman cause he stays long enough in the industry.

  83. Hey Hyung Joong! i m ur grt fan… I loved ur character in “Boys Over Flowers”
    I had never thought of having a boyfrnd bt soon after seeing u, i m literally feeling to have my soulmate (i wish it could be u)…
    But i dont think i’ll ever even meet u in my entire life time……..
    Let whatever happen none can stop me from loving u…….
    Anyway, good luck for your future… LOVE YOU JOONG….
