Earlier this week, photos of Kim Hyun Joong doing the dishes at his own restaurant surfaced online. The photos, posted on an online community board, show Kim Hyun Joong wash the dishes in the kitchen of his own restaurant, drawing interest from fans that have only seen his fancy, on-stage persona.
The person who uploaded the photos wrote, “Kim Hyun Joong stayed at the restaurant for about two hours. He signed autographs for the customers, and also did the dishes. It’s his own store, so he washed the dishes for over 20 minutes. He also cleaned the sink area after doing the dishes. It looked like he was used to doing it.”
In the photos, Kim Hyun Joong only shows his back, but the man in the leather vest and rolled up pants does seem like the “Lucky Guy” himself. More than anything, fans have been impressed by the humble nature of the global star.
Netizens commented, “He makes so much money, he should have just hired someone,” “Most celebrities would never show this side of themselves,” and “I like him even more now.”
Kim Hyun Joong opened up a chicken franchise restaurant called, “J Chicken,” in Seoul with a group of his friends recently. The store in Sa Dang is owned and run by Kim Hyun Joong himself.
