Kim Hyun Joong has finallyrevealed his thoughts about the hit KBS drama, "Boys Over Flowers". The idol appeared on the June 8th broadcast of MBC's "Knee-Drop Guru" and talked about his singing career as well as about his personal life. He started talking about how he got to play a significant role in "Boys Over Flowers", saying, "I received a phone call from the 'Boys Over Flowers' production company. I didn't know what it was, so for the first time in my life, I read a romantic-comedy manga. It was quite difficult to read because [in the manga], the characters had stars in their eyes and they were too blinding." He elaborated, "When I auditioned, they told me I looked very similar [to the character in the manga]. Inside, I had some worries because I've never acted before. I thought I should try my hardest anyways and studied by reading the manga." Kim Hyun Joong even studied the hand gesture of his character and was surrounded by a controversy concerning his unnatural acting. He said, "That [hand gesture] was even stranger. I finally realized that being natural was the best thing." He added, "I received a lot of negative comments such as, 'My hands and feet are curling from such unnatural acting. Just stick to being a singer but you're not a great singer either.' After reading such a harsh comment, I really wanted to find the IP address of the commenter." He remained humble about the success "Boys Over Flowers" has received, stating, "I think it's because the exporting team did a good job selling [its rights] overseas. The production team, Lee Min Ho, and Goo Hye Sun led the drama well so I was naturally able to do well." Source: Newsen via Nate
