Kim Hyun Joong’s “Lucky” set for Philippine release in December

Kim Hyun Joong (SportsKorea)Kim Hyun Joong (SportsKorea)Henecians, as fans of Hallyu superstar Kim Hyun Joong are known, are once again in for a real treat, as the local distributor of the talented actor-singer announced that his second mini-album, "Lucky," will be released on local shores on December 3, 2011.

Kim Hyun Joong was a recent visitor to the Philippines when he promoted his debut EP, "Breakdown" in a never-before-done fan service event that found the actor-singer high-fiving his truly lucky fans.

Just a few months after releasing "Breakdown," the hardworking star staged a comeback last October 2011 with "Lucky." The carrier single, "Lucky Guy," was released to critical and commercial success, culminating with a win on the charts of Music Bank, one of Korea's most respected and widely viewed music television shows. To experience "Lucky Guy" for yourself, check out Kim Hyun Joong's music video here:

Kim Hyun Joong's mini album "Lucky," contains a total of five tracks including "Do You Like That", which was featured in his teasers, "Lucky Guy", "Smile", "I'm Your Man" and "U". The album also includes an instrumental version of "Lucky Guy".

For the Philippine release of "Lucky," Polyeast Records is teaming up with local record chains Astroplus and Odyssey for the special "Lucky" album launch on December 3. As standard with most K-pop releases in the Philippines, freebies will be given away to every CD purchaser from 10am onwards at Astroplus The Block and Odyssey Megamall. Some lucky fans will also win Kim Hyun Joong tarpaulins and life-size standees. Filipino Henecians are indeed incredibly "lucky" to be supporting a truly productive and hardworking idol.
