Kim Bum sings for Japan

Kim Bum‘s star is definitely on the rise, but I’m a little surprised he’s already holding fanmeets in Japan, which he did on October 18 to a crowd of 800.

This event took place in Tokyo’s Harajuku Quest Hall, where he sang a few songs for fans: Hirai Ken’s “Hitomi wo tojite” and Anzen Chitai’s “Friends,” as well as a piano performance for the song “Snowflake” [눈의꽃] (remade by Park Hyo-shin from the Nakashima Mika song “Yuki no hana”), which was featured in the drama I’m Sorry, I Love You (song posted below). He followed that with a card-trick and magic show. Take a look at more pics beyond the jump.

Like I said, even with his rather quick rise in the public eye, I hadn’t really thought he was famous enough for overseas fanmeetings. Then again, he has been managed super well, his popularity growing with good pacing between projects, each one building upon the last.

For instance, before he made a splash out-angst-ing Song Seung-heon in melodrama East of Eden, he first gained recognition as a cheerful high schooler in the tame sitcom Unstoppable High Kick, following that with film roles in I Like It Hot and horror flick Go-sa.

Kim Bum plans to stay in Japan till October 22. Just think: If he’s this popular now, just imagine what it’ll be like once he takes on the Soujiro role in Korea’s Hana Yori Dango remake, Boys Before Flowers.

Kim Bum -- and his career -- looks very nice, indeed. Well, I simply fangirled his acting in East of Eden; "out-angsting Song Seung-heon", haha, an apt way to put it. It was hard not to be moved by his acting, though. Kim Bum was probably why I stuck around watching EOE for a while.

But holding fanmeets in Japan already.... hmmm, surprising, but when you think about it, he is playing the Korean version of Soujiro. I don't know if you saw this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLQbARsCgOY), but a Japanese show sought to go meet and interview three of the Korean F4 cast members, except for Kim Bum. I'm not sure why Kim Bum was absent from there, but I guess this fanmeet will serve a similar purpose: to achieve some sort of recognition in Japan as a prelude to not only his career and stardom, but his role in the Korean version of "Boys Before Flowers."

But speculation aside, I am REALLY dying to hear whether or not he can sing. If Kim Bum's a good singer and a pianist to boot, then it'll be hard to resist not to squee over and fangirly him for a change, instead of fictional characters. :P

(Whoever the photographer was took a good photo of him singing, eh?)

Haha "out-angst-ing" SSH... now that's a very exact way of putting it plainly... hahaha I am just catching up with the EoE episodes with the WITHS2 subs and I must say during the sixth episode, i think, I was kind of bummed out that Kim Bum's role is done and would have to transition to SSH... I mean.. he was just too good that everything SSH is doing right now is like 5 steps short of what Kim Bum was able to perform when he was playing the role... haha SSH's acting is still far too bland for my liking... Why can't it have been Kim Bum who played the role all the way hahaha I bet he'd actually look good with the leading ladies there (i.e. LDH and LYH) hahahaha although it's sort of cougar-ish

*runs away from SSH fans*

Maybe he'll stand out in the Kdrama version since Soujiro did crap for me in the j-version. Well, not that I watched it religiously or anything ..but still, Soujiro just didn't do much for me. I hope him more good luck in the future. I MIGHT just watch this version for him... probably not, but might.

Now that everyone and their cousin can sing and play an instrument, what's the next step for celebs trying to be talented and individual?

Your captions are great! I wonder if anyone (*coughyoucough*) will start the entertainment version of icanhascheezburger.com. :D
