Here's a special tribute to Kim Hyun Joong, an in-depth analysis of his 4D personality. I'm sure all Triple S fans have learned to love his 4D personality and have admired him for it. But have we ever really understood what's going on in his 4D world? Well, I've turned to the zodiac (which can be an accurate general representation of people, in my opinion). I've compiled this from various sources in the Internet. Read everything, and judge for yourself whether it matches Leader's personality. You'll be amazed how accurate it actually is! (Note: The texts in blue are my comments, do not copy!)

The Gemini Sun is a chameleon, which makes their personality hard to describe since it changes all the time. Those born under the sign of the "Twins" have at least two personalities (Leader has 4!), but often many more. Their insatiable curiosity keeps them learning new things, and this makes many of them like walking encyclopedias of knowledge.
The Gemini is a charmer and a clown (so like Leader!). And often they wear a silly grin, as if they get the cosmic joke that all is well and it’s okay to sample everything from the smorgasbord of life. Having sophisticated looks, Gemini is simple by nature and a child at heart.
Gemini’s are bright and happy people; they make great companions and are certainly never boring. Emotion can be their worst enemy though as they tend to feel everything, sometimes all at the same time and this can leave them worn out. But not for long. Sitting still isn’t something they do well; in fact it is thought to bring them ill health as they need constant mental stimulation.
Geminis are quick, clever, impulsive, restless, changeable and highly intellectual. They crave novelty and variety, and grow bored easily. That's why Geminis often have several books or magazines on the go at once, and they are good at multitasking. (We know Leader loves to bring Mangas with him everywhere.)
Communicative and Sociable
Gemini is the chatterbox of the zodiac, making a lot of phone calls, writing a lot of emails and visiting many different people over the course of a day. Most have a diverse collection of friends to satisfy the many sides of their ever-shifting intellects.
If Geminis find themselves in dull situations or among people who are not doing anything interesting, they are liable to stir the pot and get something going, just to amuse themselves (if you've seen SS501 shows, you'll see this side of leader 99% of the time.) Geminis will often play with people for fun, though this is usually done in a light-hearted and non-malicious way.
Powers of Persuasion
Some Geminis tell lies or half-truths regularly in order to make life easier.They can talk themselves into or out of anything (haha, fits Hyun Joong to a T. I've seen him squirm his way out of sticky situations by telling lies and half-truths). As a result, Geminis tend to do well in sales and other jobs where they have the opportunity to interact with the public. They have a natural talent for manipulating people.
Curious and Impulsive
Geminis are very curious. They are the sorts of people who will take things apart to see how they work (Right now, what comes to mind is the Taiwan Press Conference where Hyun Joong took the microphone apart just to see if the mic in Taiwan is the same as in Korea. LMAO.) Driven by whims and impulses, Gemini behavior is often erratic and unpredictable, and in some cases, nervous and hyperactive. This can lead them to make impulsive decisions without considering the consequences, or make sweeping life changes just to see what will happen.
Generous but Unreliable
Geminis are usually generous and helpful when they are available. Their generosity causes them to loan money to friends without thinking twice about it or give their time to help a friend in need (remember, Leader always said if he had money, he will give a free concert away for free so Triple S fans with no money can attend. He's so generous. Sigh.) They aren’t always sensitive to the feelings of others. However, given their propensity for generosity, many people are willing to overlook bit of “flakiness” or insensitivity.
Versatility ensures that Geminis are always able to make a living, as they have many different skills to fall back on. What they don’t know, they can usually bluff their way through. Many Geminis have a talent for handcrafts, which manifests as the ability to make or repair things (Leader is good with hands-on work, in episode 7 of The Mission, he was the one pitching the tent and assembling the table), as well as other occupations that require good hand-eye coordination. Additionally, because they are open to new technologies and quick to pick up new skills, many are good with computers and gadgets.
The Good Side and the Bad Side
Gemini is a sign that is prone to extremes, with most expressing either the positive or the negative side of the Gemini persona. Those who express the ugly side of Gemini are unreliable, superficial, fickle, deceptive, flighty, whiny, self-absorbed and gossipy, while those who express the positive side are charming, generous, witty, logical, adaptable, talented, friendly, open-minded and playful. (Hyun Joong has more of the positive traits thankfully!)
The parts of the body that Gemini rule are the arms, chest and lungs. They therefore need to take special care of these areas (if Hyun Joongie is really smoking, I hope he stops already!) As the Gemini lives almost always of their nerves they need a lot of sleep, rest and fresh air if he/she is to keep in tip top shape (no wonder Hyun Joong is always sleeping every chance he gets.) The problem is that getting him/her to sit still long enough can be a bit of a problem, you simply have to make them stop, or their body will stop for them and they will have to take time out. They don’t make the best patients in the world. Gemini is very aware of his/her health, for as long as his attention span allows anyway. They should really try and have a health regime and stick to it.
Gemini’s thrive in the media (that's why he's an idol!) Everything in that world is fast and quick and instant and that is exactly what the Gemini loves. A journalist would be perfect, but anywhere really within that business will keep their busy minds occupied. Also the theatre is somewhere a Gemini can feel really at home. They love to act and have a natural ability so having the theatre in their lives somewhere, maybe as a hobby will make sure that the Gemini has an outlet for there thespian tendencies (so expect Hyun Joong to take on more acting roles in the future! I just hope he doesn't get too sidetracked that he neglects SS501. But we all know that's not gonna happen, right? He loves SS501 so much.)
The love life of a Gemini is never easy. People accuse them of lacking warmth and affection, this isn’t true at all (agreed! Not true at all!) If you are patient enough with one of these highly emotional people then the wait will be worth it. They can be everything you want them to be and more, you just have to know the right buttons to press to get to their heart. Flirting is another word that automatically springs to mind when one thinks about the Gemini in love, and they are incredibly flirty, but it’s fun and harmless. Gemini people are faithful and loyal. They give 100% of themselves once they have found the right person, but will not tolerate bad behavior or cheating. They have open minds and a vast imagination so you will never get bored in the bedroom department! (Hear that ladies?! Hehe.)
What Gemini Needs
Someone who can roll with the punches and keep smiling in the face of a multi-faceted onslaught is priceless to the hyperactive Twins. It's an added plus if that person is smart, fun, a good friend and a great sport (Hyun Joong has always been vocal about the kind of girl he wants. He wants someone who can be like a friend, who he can feel comfortable with.) Geminis need someone who can be attentive to them and who will naturally enjoy their sparkle and wit. They also prefer a strong partner who is not necessarily as smart as they are but who can pick them up, emotionally, when necessary. If the Twins can make a marvelous mental match, life will be a dream. (Awww, so many girls would want to fill this description!)
The Gemini lover is easygoing and caring, yet daring and a ball of fire at the right moments. Mental fireworks are high on their agenda, their own as well as those they can make with another. Only those with plenty of punch need apply for this celestial light show!
"Born leader" is the key word for the Tigers. They are always in the lead and are most likely the ones to cry out "Let's Go"! Noble and Fearless, Tigers are respected for their courage, even from those working against them.
Occupying the 3rd position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Tiger symbolizes such character traits as bravery, competitiveness and unpredictability (the very keywords that describe Leader... brave, competitive and unpredictable.) Tigers love to be challenged and will accept any challenge if it means protecting a loved one or protecting their honor. Don’t let their calm appearance fool you though; Tigers will pounce when they feel it’s necessary.
They have a slight tendency to be selfish but overall, Tigers are extremely generous. They’re very intelligent and they’re always on alert. Tigers are very charming and are well-liked by others. (Very well liked, I should say!)
Tiger people are difficult to resist, for they are magnetic characters and their natural air of authority confers a certain prestige on them (Yeah, I always see this in Leader. He has this authoritative aura around him. He may be silly and mischievous at times, but when he's serious, he can command and his members all cower down and obey him. He really is the Leader of SS501.) They are tempestuous yet calm, warm-hearted yet fearsome, courageous in the face of danger yet yielding and soft in mysterious, unexpected places.
As they do their enemies, Tigers have a tendency to pounce on their work. Afterward, they’re left feeling exhausted. Although they’ll soon bounce right back, over time this approach can cause problems with their health. Tigers need to develop a more balanced approach to life so they can utilize their energy more efficiently (I hope Leader takes more care of his health to avoid incidents like when he collapsed out of exhaustion.)
The best jobs for Tigers are those that will lead them towards positions of leadership. Some suitable careers for Tigers include: advertising agent, office manager, travel agent, actor, writer, artist, pilot, flight attendant, musician, comedian and chauffeur.
Creative in their passion, Tigers will never bore their partners. They’re expressive, polite and trustworthy, but watch out. Tigers tend to dominate their relationships. This tendency is instinctive and when monitored closely, such behavior can be kept under control. Partners need to be equally active to keep up with the Tiger’s sense of adventure.
Fire Tiger (Those born in years 1926 and 1986)
Expressive, vibrant and a bit eccentric, Fire Tigers are always looking at the positive side of every situation. Because they’re able to generate excitement in others, they’re considered excellent leaders. When Fire Tigers speak, others listen – and do what they’re told! (It's amazing how accurately this describes Hyun Joong)
Tigers are compatible with a Dog and a Horse and are incompatible with a Goat and an Ox. (Like I said, Leader and Jung Min are very compatible with each other. LOL.)
So, what do you think? Does all this describe Kim Hyun Joong accurately? I think it does. Chincharo.
