Headings for articles

Lol guys!

I knew when I posted that article that it would drive loads of people crazy wondering and speculating what he was talking about.

But guys... it's merely a title for an article. Meaning that it was written by a reporter. If you read the actual article, he doesn't say anything at all against Hwang Bo. He was just talking about his own filming experiences.

That's it.

I don't know why you guys thought that he was going around claiming that he's forgotten about Hwang Bo when he didn't say that. And that he was being disrespectful of her. And I can forsee people saying that he was being irresponsible with his speech.

That left me going 'Huh? How did that come about?'

We should all know by now that most articles try to have as attention gripping a header as possible. And by the looks of all your reactions, this article did exactly that.

Grabbed your attention.

Besides, when I read that article heading, it just meant one thing to me. That he's giving his all to the drama.

I usually try to use the original headers for articles for every post I write, translating directly from the original title into English. And certainly, I never really expected to see all the 'I'm going to hate Hyun Joong because he doesn't deserve her'.

This is exactly the way it was when the article about Hwang Bo saying that there was no possibility of her dating him came out. Or even the one where she supposedly called him a child came out. Everyone attacked her and said that she didn't deserve him.

But that wasn't the whole story. We all know that.

People are singing to a different tune now. But essentially the same concept, just reversed roles.

Come on guys, it's just the heading of an article. It's what sells. We all know that.

I mean, would you pay attention to an article that says 'Hyun Joong says he feels excited when filming'?

Would it have grabbed your attention as much as the one below?

Probably not.

But does he deserve the hate because of the heading? Or the disappointment in something that he didn't do?

Not at all.

I think that people should read the content of the post instead of concentrating on the heading.

The reactions that I am reading seriously makes me wonder if I should continue posting articles with such provocative titles.

Because I worry that you guys may not be able to handle it.

Even when it means nothing at all.

chonsa, pls do not hestitate and pls continue to translate so that at least we, the non-korean speakers know news about the stuff going around joongbo... I am sure i will get over such headings and even more provocative wordings during HYD cos i will take it as for promotional purpose. I will continue to believe in Joongbo and will wait Patiently for their good news of their wedding. LOL
So pls do continue to translate and pls ask ur reliable source, the make-up artist? to continue to look out for more csi too? lol
thanks a lot

I think the management is really trying hard to make ppl forget shillang in WGM and make ppl remember HYD. That could be one of the purpose. HYD do not want ppl to see hj as shillang but as rui...so ppl be prepared for more such stuff or even worse but pls Continue TO BELIEVE IN JOONBO cos i think no one matches each other as much as they do.

hi chonsa i belive you but now i don't belive HJ. i don't know my self i like them and i want HJ AND HB really in love with each other i think i can try tobelieve them and i hope that everything is allright. this is my wish!!!!!!!! go go go KIM HYUN JOONG AND HWANG BO we waiting....

Anonymous said...

LMAO....and feeling relieved...when I read the article you put up...I was saddened, however believing the media is just twisting things around...somehow I could not make myself believe....thanks chonsa.....please keep on with your great work...as a non korean, in the process of learning, I am ssooooo thankful for all your updates....with their personalities...and if they did somehow developed feelings for each other....these two are going to take a long time before they figure it out....so hoping Chonsa that you are in for the long haul as I so depend on you for word of them.....LOL

far said...

haha..lolx chonsa. seriously,like u said,it was for the sell purposes.those reporter should check for a better relevent title with their stories.its normal for people (especially the Joongboers!!) to feel shock and surprise even by looking at the title! *sigh* yet,i hope they still in contact, even not as a couple, as a friends should be ok, since , u may ended up as a lover when u are friends, but u can nver b a friends after u break with ur lover, isnt it? =) so, Chonsa! aja aja hwaiting! we'l always keep support ur blog and news! always anticipate more! himnaeseyo!

Anonymous said...

lol ! yes, sometimes the title of your articles makes me go crazy with wild imaginations .... but I still firmly believe in our couple ... I just don't want them , esp. Hj to say anything bad about each other at any point this time , because their relationship in WGM has become so precious to us , fans ... That's why I don't hate HJ (yet ) , and hope the "hate " never happens because I love him and HB so much ... They have become an"obssession ", so much so that any "bad " news or even a negative " heading " of an article bet. them feels like a "blow " to me , even if it's not true ...
and Chonsa , if in case you never hear a comment again from me one of these days , just take it that I've been admitted to a mental asylum , hahaha !!!!! the cause is JoongBo paranoia , lol! ( fervently hopes I keep my sanity,lol!)

JoongBo , aja ! aja !

ehhehe Chonsa!! Thanks for explaination.... I do understand these reporters' concept (last time they did with Hwangbo Onnie too... about 2AM or 2PM)....All i was saying is that IF HE DOES in future (which i hope he won't)....

BUT At this moment i am supporting him too (i actually read news about him and waiting HYD to release)....

sharry said...

LOl thanks for this chonsie.Some pplo needed to grasp the reality of what is going on instead of coming to stupid conclusions.
Those "omg if shillang forgets about Bu In .. bla bla bla" comments are really annoying to pplo like Me and others who are HJ fans too.

And funny thing is.. a LOT of pplo assumed that HJ would forget about her real easy. Well what if HB is the one to forget him first? What kind of excuses will some of u come up with now?

To be a REAL Joongbo fan u must support BOTH of them and not just one. Have faith in BOTH and trust them to make the right decisions. Only then they can call themselves true fans.

Anonymous said...

ehehhe Sharry...IF Hwangbo Onnie forgets HJ then there will be VALID reason to do....aw!! Seriously i need to get a life but what to do?? i just admire Onnie so much that i can't hear/read bad words about her and also become very protective towards her....Last time also, I had this huge discussion on net (nowadays I don’t fight.... u know, In New Year I promised to be a good lady like Onnie... or may be at least half of what she is)..............

But No matter who says bad or ill words about her... I am gonna hate that person (Seriously I can't help myself for not doing it) or may be...will also join antis’ clubs ehhehehe........anyway jokes apart (I am joking about Anti thing…that’s not my style) I just hope Onnie will be happy forever and HJ too~~~

P.S. i am not so real Joongbo Fan like you...Actually I am much of Hwangbo Fan, who likes Joongbo and HJ... so it is quite obvious for me to care Onnie's happiness at first than others.

IF Hwangbo Onnie forgets HJ then there will be VALID reason to do....That means She never turn her back...she keeps her promises even they are very tiny....

I like them both as a couple and as people with good characters...But reading some of these comments, I can't help to think that these fans are a bunch of hyprocrite feminists. Give HJ some credits, without him, Hb couldn't have shined that much on WGM.AND don't even deny that. Plus as we can see that he's a lovable character as much as she is, if not more because he still has that "I can overcome anything" quality, plus his straight forward personna. It's obvious that Hj thinks Hb is very special, No one/fan needs to remind him that. Instead, focus on your own self and how you treat the good people around you.

As a fan, we may like both HJ and HB together or we may like them more than the other individually. When we read (negative) news about them, we shouldn't jump to conclusions based on media/netizen speculations because that will add more pressures on them. We know how special they are, so stop with all the negative comments.

If they end up together, we will be happy for them. However, if they're with someone else which I hope not, then we just wish them well. We should respect their decisions and continue to support them regardless.

First of all thank you Chonsa's constant updated news that share with all Joongboers..

HJ's new drama is out today (Jan 5) Korean Time, the production company will released all sort of story to media because they want maximum exposure to advertise the drama, they will do whatever they can to attract publicity from the viewers.

being an artist in the entertainment industry, it is not easy for them to be themself, every move or action will be watching by the public.

HB is a very considerate person, she dosn't want to interfer HJ's future, because he is still young and has a long way to go, that is why HB is very cautious to avoid any rumor or scandal with HJ.

Personally, I do wish them to be ended up together in the future, but if it is not meant to be, we just have to wish them luck and be happy with their decision, or should i say their destiny.

Anonymous said...

HJ and HB are considerate of each other - moreso HB. HJ would never say anything that would hurt HB. Chonsa is right; most articles don't match their headlines - that causes people to misunderstand.

I am not even worried about HJ being in that drama - I hope he does better but seems like his heart is not into it - he is more of a singer and not an actor - according to him.

I still believe!!!

algelic said...

Thank you for the article!

I wasn't bothered at all. I knew it was just to grab attention.

It's good to know that Hyun is doing OK in his drama! :D

Anonymous said...

Chonsa , yes the article doesn't mention about him forgetting HB , and I'm glad for it ... However , I want to punch the reporter for that "heading " ... I hate him , grrrr !!!! almost caused me to hate HJ as well, hahah ! I belive HB isn't that easy to forget ...

Sharry , if ever HB will be the one to find a love first ,( I don't think she will forget HJ like you said )I will support her still , and that man is very lucky ... It is considered a loss for HJ , hahah ! Although I like HJ too ( bec. of HB ) , but I like HB more!!!! So if HB chooses him in the future , I will love him equally as well ...

But I will support his drama and other activities ...

So go HJ !!!!!! Show them what you've got !!!!

Thanks chonsa !!!!

OmG this is Ridiculous!!....One Article caused so much CHOAS here in Chonsa's Blog hahah...People seriously need to step out and give some space...

Whoever is this person (the below quoted)...i agree half of what she/he says...but as for Fan issue, please don't say any harsh words because all of us (fans) have our own way of thinking (we all are unique)...IF their (other fans) and your thinking doesn't match...Doesn't mean they are or you are stupid..... Beside i think most of the people who hangs here in chonsa blog are Joongbo fan (it just some prefer HJ and some HB more) so it’s okay to have preferences….life will be boring if they only like/care one person

I was ready for these kinds of headlines. It's whats sells and we should just trust HJ and HB. Right now HJ has his drama so I'm guessing this is all the manager and HYD promotion people doing. I know deep down HJ will not forget HB that easily. Thanks Chonsa and continue updating us. I check your blog everyday even when I'm at school. The minute I see a computer in the library I jump right on to check your blog. I still believe in JoongBo no matter what.

Anonymous said...

Yup, it caught ppl attention, but when I saw the whole story, I thought to myself, it's nothing. Hj is just taking about his new drama. He didn't even mention HB name it it, the reporter try to get ppl attention by using that title, hey they got joongboers attention, didn't they?

Anonymous said...

one bad heading and we get all these reactions , lol ! What more if the negative heading and the article matches ? It will be a riot out of control !!! This only shows how much JB has affected a lot of people ....Can't blame them - they are so lovable ...

But please no bashing ... let's respect each other's opinion , and we all differ with each other .No two persons think alike ...Let's just support them as a couple or individually ... that's what we are here for .

I salute you chonsa for the honest words and news you always give us ... pls continue ... I will support you ...and hope the next article will be a little bit of good news and will bring happiness to us all !

What is said in writing is truly irrelevant. I like both of them regardless. And perhaps they have both forgotten one another as far as we know. Our life revolves around our fate, over which we have no control, so whatever happens happens. And even if he had said that (which he didn't) it would have been his choice; no reason to have negative feelings toward him. After all, relationships start and end all the time.
