After screening of the scenes from the drama ‘Shopping King Louis’, Sang Hyun reappeared in a stylish navy jacket worn over a white tee and jeans with an interesting print. His next song 좋은사람 (A Good Man) was the same song his character Jung Won had sung in episode 14 for the King of Masked Singer competition during the staff retreat.

As the drama is currently shown in Japan, he wanted to know if they find it interesting. While on his break after completing the drama, he had gone to Sweden to film a documentary on fathers who are active in childcare, to compare the difference between Swedish and Korean fathers.
His next drama under KBS would be broadcast around the end of February 2017. Holding up 4 fingers, he asked us to guess his next role from these options ….. a clever man, a cheating husband, a cool but single dad and Sageuk (period drama). He said that he has never acted in a Sageuk and much to our amusement, spoke some lines in the guttural drawn out tone the drama characters used when addressing the King, His Majesty ….. ‘전하’ (Jeonha)! That certainly made me laugh.
I had read some media reports that he would be playing the role of a husband so chose option 2. He expressed surprise that many of us got it right and wondered if we already knew about the role. It will be an interesting and funny drama in which he plays a flirt, a character which is in contrast with Oska (Secret Garden).
I am glad that there were more Korean songs this time as it created a nice balance. The next 2 songs were OSTs from the drama ‘My Fair Lady’, both still favorites of mine. He thought Romance would be better sung as a duet as that would bring out its full emotion. I think so too as I love his duet with Yoon Eun Hye.

The new drama would have 20 episodes and shooting is expected to lasts until May. When he mentioned that he is considering a Summer Concert, it got us excited. To much laughter, he suggested that everyone should come dressed as if going to the beach, in shorts but no bikinis! “With the air-cond switched off, no? Then just have the fan on, no? So we’ll have the air-cond on then”. Summer Concert with beach wear concept, what do you think?
Shortly after he started singing his next song U-Turn, he stopped abruptly when he realized he had missed a beat and asked for the music to be replayed. The second attempt was perfect, followed by the next song 誓い (Oath).

最後の雨 (Last Rain) seems to be Sang Hyun’s perennial favorite, perhaps this being his debut song in Japan. It a song he always remember ….. at home, at work, when he was in Sweden and when he sees rain. Though he insisted that this would be the last song, we knew there would be an encore.
As he went backstage, the chanting began …… Yoon Sang Hyeon …. Yoon Sang Hyeon ……
A few minutes had elapsed as the chanting continued when Sang Hyun reappeared and starting singing ‘This Is The Moment’ (지금 이 순간). It took us completely by surprise and everyone cheered. This is the song from episode 13 which Jung Won sang as he kept Louis company outside the toilet. But at that moment, Sang Hyun was singing it specially for us and in the style of the Korean musical Jekyll & Hyde.
He was awesome. Everyone was clapping and cheering loudly when he finished. Some in the audience requested for an encore and much to our delight, he obliged. He went back in, reappeared and gave us another wonderful rendition of the song. More loud clapping and cheering. It was truly an unforgettable moment.
Do check out the full version by Jo Sung Woo below, in the Korean musical Jekyll & Hyde as Sang Hyun had sang it with the same level of passion.

It was finally time for the last song 明日 (Tomorrow).
As Sang Hyun exited the stage, a short clip was projected onto the screen with scenes from past concerts and fan meeting. And a parting message ….
I guess we could always look forward to meeting again ‘tomorrow’ but right now, we have another precious moment …… the High 5. Most of us remain seated while waiting for it to start. I had thought at first that it would be carried out on stage before we made our exit but due to limited space, I guess it would be better to have it in the lobby. Finally the staff motioned for everyone to move towards the exit door at the back.
There he was just a short distance from the exit ….. smiling and shaking hands/giving a High 5 to each individual as they bade him farewell. I still remember the very first time I had met Sang Hyun up close during a High 5 back in 2010. I guess I was too much in awe then because I was simply speechless in front of him. It was an opportunity lost and over too soon. This time as I stood before him, shook his hand (instead of the high 5) and we smiled at each other …. I told him who I am and where I’m from. The name seems to have registered as he laughed and repeated ‘Singapore’ …..
