Kim Hyung Jun debutted as SS501 in year 2005. His 3 years younger brother, Kim Ki Bum, joined U-Kiss 2 years ago, following Hyung Jun’s footsteps into the entertainment industry. Hyung Jun event attended U-Kiss’s events to support his little brother, showing their close relationship. However, recently U-Kiss’s popularity is rising rapidly, will Hyung Jun be worried about his juniors overtaking him?

At first, we are good brothers, but now, i felt that his is a little threat, but he is still my good little brother!” He quickly added:”Just kidding!

U-Kiss came to Singapore twice, while this is the first time for Hyung Jun.

After going solo, Kim Hyung Jun admits that sometimes he felt lonely. Now that he is alone, he needs to be more mature and careful in his social skills.
