Hayato-san Writes That He Won't Give In To Anti-Fans

I will not disappear..

I have received comments from many people.
I apologize for causing you to worry.
But rest assured. I will never give in to anti-fans or opposition. (Have you heard someone say this before?)
At any time of the world, there are people who wish to control the palace. (T/N: not certain about this sentence.)
I believe that is fine, but is it bad to think this way?

Only, please allow me to rest from posting on the blog for a while… it really does take a lot of effort.
I cant sleep due to how busy I am, I am bothered by fever and headaches and diarrhea, yet without taking a break I am rambling on –smile-

Anyway concerning this, everyone please don’t worry and stay as always cheerful and in good health.

Please take some time to think of JYJ.

Ugh, it’s happening again.. excuse me I have to go to the loo~

Let's talk about something nice



June 27, 2011

Let’s talk about something nice


I have read many messages… many of the messages were apologies…

Why are the fans saying sorry to me?
Oh, I shouldn’t have done so!

What am I doing?
The fans are saying sorry to me… I shouldn’t write such articles.
I hope I am not too late in reflecting on myself.

You can like what you like.
The reason that you like them should differ.
The reason why you became to like them should differ.

Your supports should vary.
You should support them with your own special feelings.
I do not have the right to restrict your ways of supports.
I am really sorry if there were those who felt unpleasantness (T/N: by my words).

In the first place, my blog is not a place where I write these kinds of things.

It should be a place to share with you the delightful stories about them.

When we meet again, I’ll tell a story that all of you can smile.

Oh, I do not need comments.
I am very thankful that you are writing “Please rest awhile”, but when the comments exceed 400, I need time to read…oh, it’s already after 3:00am. I cannot go to bed.
Oh, I know that it is my fault, I declared that I will take a rest, but I am writing. (lol)
I won’t write anymore, I won’t read anymore.

For sure this time.
See you


Hayato

"Documentary 3 Days" Proves The Popularity Of JYJ in Vietnam

On the 26th, the video of JYJ’s Kim Junsu and Kim Jaejoong with Park Ji Sung in Vietnam’s charity football match was broadcasted in “Documentary 3 days”, proving their great popularity in Vietnam.

On the day of the match, there were many fans gathered at the hotel where Yoo Sang Chul stayed at, and he jokingly said, “ two thirds of the amount of fans here are JYJ fans, one third are Park Ji Sung’s fans, and perhaps only one of them is my fan!”

When Park Ji Sung came out to board the bus, loud screams by fans could be heard, and the screams became louder when JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu boarded the bus. A great commotion by fans were made when Kim Jaejoong sat beside Jung Dae Sae and started chatting with him.

On the day of the charity match, Kim Junsu substituted one of the football players, and ran on the field along side with his team players.

JYJ Concluded World Tour with Gwangju's, followed by solo activities



JYJ held their two-months of “2011 JYJ World Tour Concert” and rounded off with an encore concert in Gwangju.

JYJ started with Bangkok on the 2nd of April and continued with Taiwan, China, Japan and four North American cities, then Korea’s Busan and Gwangju, with a total of 7 countries and 10 cities.

Kim Jaejoong was Asia tour’s director, who directed with the concept of “Creativity Challenge”. C-JeS Entertainment’s representative Baek Chang Ju said, “The 2011 World Tour Concert that displayed JYJ’s infinite possibilities gained strength from fans’ support and encouragements from all around the world and was marvelously concluded.”, “Please also look out for the upcoming solo activities of the three members,” entrusting the fans for support.

JYJ’s Gwangju encore performance had about 7000 audiences and because it was the last concert, the reluctant feeling was unable to be hidden. Also JYJ presented a big laughter to fans by sharing the imitation of their favorite KBS2 Gag Concert segment.

Kim Jaejoong expressed, “Because today is the last concert, rather than giving a neat choreograph of a concert, (We) would rather be closer and ‘breathing’ with the audiences. JYJ also would be preparing exciting activities,” and telling to fans, “Please support and trust us till the end.” The heartfelt audiences answered with their encouraging applause.

Park Yoochun, “There seems to be very little chances to show ourselves to you all, but through this World Tour Concert, it was the happiest time I had after debuting as a singer,” and “Members would be busy with our individual solo activities but would not lose the focus of JYJ. We’ll meet again with an even more handsome public performance,” relaying his thoughts towards the end of the world tour.

Kim Junsu said, “Rather than saying it’s World Tour Concert that injected energy, it was actually the acceptance by fans. I would like to sincerely thank every fans and hoped that this year ends well.”

Additionally, JYJ’s Gwangju encore performance will be shown through KBS2′s Entertainment Generation, broadcasting on the 28th at 7pm KST.

Yoochun Plays The Piano In Ripley - Will He Capture Lee Da Hae's Heart?

Park Yoochun of Miss Ripley Plays the Piano. Will He Capture Lee Dahae’s Heart?



Park Yoochun is forecasted to transform into a man who plays the piano to make the heart of women flutter. On the 9th episode of the Monday-Tuesday drama Miss Ripley of MBC that will air on June 27, Park Yoochun will himself sing while playing a white piano.

Park Yoochun who filmed on the 22nd in Yuksamdong pulled off the best of scenes through expert piano skills and sweet voice. Filming had taken place from 1am due to heavy schedule and so it was a situation that could only result in a clogged voice. However he did not show off his fatigue and sang the Miss Ripley OST The Empty Space for You with the piano with a happy face.

The production company relayed: “Women are significantly attracted to men who play the piano, to the degree that it is traditionally said that when a male actor plays the piano the drama becomes successful. The opportunity to play the piano for a woman he loves in the drama was a good opportunity for Park Yoochun who is originally a singer to show off his strong points as a singer. The extraordinary appeal of Park Yoochun will be melded completely into the drama.”

Hayato's Blog Updates
An Angry Hayato



Credits: Mainichiga XIAH DAY

T/N: I always try to take the original caps for evidence, but this time, Hayato has already deleted his post. Therefore, I borrowed his sentences from a Japanese blogger.
June 26, 2011

Cut it out!!!

Hayato-san, who always has a kind and soft image, is he angry about something now?

What is he angry about?... Let’s hear his real intentions….

“Then, you should write from the start that the petition should be submitted to a public organization!” … It was clearly written that the petition will be submitted to the public organization from the beginning!
I’ve heard that the petition was submitted to that organization, since the actions of avex were clearly against the Fair Trade Commission.

But, nevertheless…
Do you know how hard JYJ tried so that they can come to Japan this time!?
Do you know what feelings they were holding when they came to Japan!?
Do you know that the people related put in so many efforts!?
But you yourselves are outsiders!?

I don’t want you to justify the reason why you didn’t join the petition!!!
“I didn’t want to write your real name”…that couldn’t be helped.. I myself was reluctant in doing so.
“I didn’t know about the petition”…that couldn’t be helped.
“The target was 10000”…so you left it to other people!?
“Did anything happen after the previous petitions?”
Please keep quiet if you intend to take no actions!!!
If my existence is annoying, you do not have to read my blog!!!


Please do listen to the words that Jaejoong has given to us. There are hidden messages to the 2 members in his words. Why does he still speak the word “Tohoshinki”? I think that he wants his feelings to reach the 2 members one day. Futile, but that is Jaejoong in person. If you are really fans, please open your ears, and try to read their hearts. They are doing their best under their circumstances. They cannot talk freely. That is because they will be misunderstood if they do so. But did you hear what Jaejoong was saying in 3hree Voices? When I first asked him that whether or not they had messages to the fans, he first said “Difficult!” But, he was saying that though he will not say the words, the fans will understand him. There is impatience that he want to say, but cannot do so. That is his current situation.
They wanted to be active as 5 members. But they were divided by wicked rumors.
Please do not be made a fool of by those rumors. The truth is shown in JYJ’s actions. Please understand them. And support the current JYJ.

It is free to wish that the 5 members can be active one day. I also wish that such a day will come. Just like Simon & Garfunkel.
But, should they go back to that avex? Please read the Bunshun article. Do you really want them to go back there? For your own ego?

Please do not hurt them anymore. They have had enough of them.
They are receiving anti-comments more than me.
What can we do for them?
That is, we should believe in them.
Let’s believe in what JYJ believes in! And go after the path that JYJ is walking.
Let’s always show them our smiles.
In order to do so, the fans should be united.
Please, hold your hands.
They are not free yet. Please unite your feelings so that they can be free.
The trust and bonds… that makes us move forward.
Did you all receive their messages?


I think that the angry Hayato is a different person.
Even though I said that I wanted to rest, I don’t feel well and irritated by reading the selfish comments.
Please forgive me… oh, please give me some rest!

From the real Hayato

adding the original capped pic, special thanks to chara1019.
(all the sentences and words are completely the same as the above capped pic from Mainichiga XIAH DAY)



--------

T/N: Concerning the last Hayato’s blog that I’ve translated, I’ve received a comment that I’ve omitted two sentences on purpose, compared to the translation of other sites. However, those two sentences were not included at the timing I translated his blog. (You can see the capped pic with the trans, that should be the evidence,) All of you know that Hayato keeps adding and deleting his comments, moreover, deleting the whole article itself when it becomes the center of the talks, just like this one.
I also want to state that, though I am a fan of Yunho, I do not include any of my personal feelings in my translations, that is my pride. (I’ve been in this fandom for 2 years now, and most of you should know that I’m a fair translator.) I hope that you will not hold any prejudice when you read my translations. Thanks.

Park Yoochun Is Helpless In Front Of A Vending Machine, 'Humiliation For A Conglomerate's Successor?'



A video of Park Yoochun and Lee Da Hae filming in the subway station for MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Miss Ripley’ was released on the drama’s homepage on the 25th.

In the video, the two were in the subway station to film for the scene in which conglomerate successor Song Yoo Hyun(Park Yoochun) and Jang Miri(Lee Da Hae) ride the subway to get to the location of their simple date.

During a quick break, Lee Da Hae asked Park Yoochun if he could buy her a drink from a vending machine. Park Yoochun didn’t have any money on him because he was filming and gave her the excuse, “It doesn’t work. The 10,000 Won bill won’t go in and we can’t use a credit card. I really wanted to buy you a drink though.”

When Park Yoochun joked, “I’m not thirsty. We can just swallow our spit,” Lee Da Hae replied by saying, “I think we really are so poor.”

Netizens who saw the video stated, “He’s a conglomerate successor but he can’t even buy his date a drink because he doesn’t have a 1,000 Won bill,” and “It’s nice because the atmosphere on set looks great between the two.”

'Poseidon' Is Set To Air On KBS...Will U-Know Yunho Appear In The Drama?



Maritime drama ‘Poseidon’, that had production halted indefinitely, has found its savior.

According to KBS, ‘Poseidon’ has been confirmed to air after KBS 2TV’s new Monday-Tuesday miniseries ‘Spy Myeong Wol’.

An emotional melodrama by PD Yoon Seok Ho was supposed to air after ‘Spy Myeong Wol’ but as the preparation process continues to be extended in order to create a drama with a higher level of completion, KBS has decided to air ‘Poseidon’ first.

‘Poseidon’ was expected to air in May on SBS with a star-studded cast of TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho, Eric, Kim Ok Bin and Kim Kang Woo. But with SBS deciding not to air the show and production being halted, Eric, Kim Ok Bin and Kim Kang Woo pulled out from the drama after consulting with the production company.

This has left people wondering if U-Know Yunho will still appear in the drama.

Regarding this, a representative of SM Entertainment stated, “Because U-Know Yunho already has activities planned, we are not in the position to say anything about his future appearance in ‘Poseidon’,” and “We have not completely organized our stance on his appearance in the drama yet.”

Actress Park Haemi complimented the musical acting of Kim Junsu.

On the cable channel QTV’s “SuMiOk” that was aired on the 24th, Park Haemi appeared and shared a variety of stories of her family and her life of acting and such.

Park Haemi who has made clear of her unique niche even on the stage of the musicals answered “Kim Junsu” when the MC Kim Jongmin asked her: “There are many musical actors from the idol scene. Who is the actor that you think is good and has abilities?”

Continuing, she did not spare her advice, saying: “I think one needs to be an all-around entertainers nowadays and so I like it that those (idols) rise on the (musical) stage. However, they need to practice a lot. If they practice diligently and do their best they will be able to show 100% of their true worth.”

Jaejoong Transforms from Someone Who Popped Out Of A Manga to Someone Who Makes Hearts Flutter



Group JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong did a solid fan service for the last (stage). Hero Jaejoong appeared in “black hair” on the final stage of the “JYJ World Tour Concert” that was held on the 26th in Gwangju and made the hearts of women flutter. “Black-Haired Jaejoong” rose to the stage as a man whose charisma could be felt.

Kim Jaejoong until now has had hair that was colored blond and lips tinged with red, and had the image of a beautiful boy who popped straight out from the pages of a manga. Kim Jaejoong’s changed image seemed like a new transformation for the benefit of the fans who had given him strength to finish the world tour in success.

On this scene of the Gwangju concert, about 7,000 fans gathered. It was a splendid finale to the world tour that lasted about 2 months. Along with Kim Jaejong, members Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu showed off their expert humor by parodying the Gag Concert of KBS 2TV.

Kim Jaejoong left his feelings on Twitter on the 27th: “Everyone of the JYJ World Tour, thank you for your hard work. The fans also, thank you for what you have done. Indeed it was the best!”

JYJ had a world tour concert in 10 cities of 7 countries, beginning with Bangkok, Thailand and going to Taiwan, China, Japan, the USA, and Korea. Kim Jaejoong also took charge of directing the concert with the concept of “Creative Challenge” in the Asian region tour of Thailand, Taiwan, China, Japan and such.

Stars With Upward-Looking Futures- Yoochun Has Qualifications For A Good Actor

7 Stars Who Build Expectations of How They Will Be in 7 Years

Park Yoochun. Practices Reading the Script 8 Hours Per Day… “Qualifications for a Good Actor.”



Park Yoochun who was born in 1986 debuted in splendid form in 2004 as a member of TVXQ. He was a member of an idol group that ruled Asia but united in strength with Kim Junsu and Kim Jaejoong and became independent as JYJ after conflicts with the then-agency. He was reborn as a promising actor through the 2010 drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal which was his first acting piece and secured a new fan base unique to JYJ. A stage by JYJ which was difficult to obtain was also procured for the Drama Awards Ceremony. Currently he is appearing in Miss Ripley and is walking fast on the road of an actor.

“He had various conditions to be a good actor but I did not know that he’d do that well for a first challenge at a period piece. There are many strong points- The diligence of practicing the script for more than 8 hours per day. That he has no fear of the camera since he has risen on big stages often. That he is able to concentrate (T/N: alternatively, induce concentration). Above all the determination and passion towards a difficult challenge was strong. He has the qualifications to become an even better actor if he does not rush but rather selects good projects and make (his way).”

TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin showed his charm by singing a charismatic nursery rhyme with his irresistible intense eyes.

During the “Secret Order” section in Come To Play, all the guests were to write down the things that they were ordered to do. There were various orders throughout the phases but Changmin is the only one who never gets any secret order.

“Maybe it’s because I usually don’t do anything, so they let me do nothing.” Changmin said the only thing he could do very well is to show his charismatic eyes instantly.

Lee Teuk said that Changmin’s eyes looks like they are shooting laser when he sings love songs. Even when he sings a nursery rhyme his eyes are so extraordinary. In response Changmin at once showed his eyes charm.

‘Come to Play’ Cut Off Scene ( talked about his hyung ! )

Changmin revealed that when they were on their way to SMT Paris, Yunho shouted when he saw his hubaes in airport regardless it was a public place. “YAH! Flaming Charisma Choi Minho!” ”Sulli ya! Victoria!” It really made him headache and felt like to pretend that he didn’t know his hyung. — It is imaginable that the SMT Paris trip had become enjoyable and peaceful because of our loud Yunho, and also the speechless Changmin-kun aside!

SM Town Artists Reveal The Top Trainees From Back In The Day



On the June 27th SM Town special episode of MBC’s ‘Come To Play‘, the artists revealed which members of the company were the top trainees back in the day.

The three members chosen were DBSK’s Changmin and Super Junior members Choi Siwon and Shindong.

Leeteuk explained, “When top quality trainees first join the company, all the other trainees hear rumors about them and start to feel a sense of rivalry. Back in the day, the top three trainees were Changmin, Siwon, and Shindong.”

“Changmin garnered a lot of attention because he was a straight A student and looked a lot like our senior, Kangta. Siwon was also famous because of his good looks.”

“As for Shindong, we all assumed he’d have explosive vocals to sort of make up for the way he looks,” stirring laughter amongst the audience.

Shindong later added that the company has prohibited him from standing in the middle, on the off chance that his rotund figure could create the illusion that the other members were round as well.

Changmin's Charming And Charismatic Rendition Of The Children's Song 'Splish Splash' On 'Come To Play'



TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin showed off his charms by singing a charismatic rendition of a children’s song with his eyes wide open.

In the MBC ‘Come To Play’ episode that aired on the 26th, Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, f(x) and TVXQ, who are the forerunners of the K-Pop craze in Europe, talked about the behind-the-scenes stories of their trainee days.

They each had ‘secret orders’ at the time and they wrote down what they were not allowed to do. There were a variety of orders such as ‘Don’t overreact’, but Changmin was the only person who didn’t have a secret order.

He said that he wasn’t told not to do something because he usually didn’t do anything. But there was something that Changmin is good at, and that was having a charismatic gaze.

When Lee Teuk said that Changmin sings ballads with a gaze that could shoot laser beams and even children’s songs with a strong gaze, Choikang Changmin sang ‘Splish Splash’ on the spot with his strong and charming gaze.

Choikang Changmin Encourages Girls' Generation As A Singer Who Entered The Japanese Market First



TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin gave words of encouragement to Girls’ Generation.

MBC’s ‘Come to Play’ held a ‘We Came from Paris’ special with TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation and f(x).

While saying their final comments to each other, Changmin gave words of encouragement to Girls’ Generation, who are currently busy with their Japanese activities, as he said, “It’s lonely and hard to be in a country that isn’t your homeland,” and “I’m sure you will miss your friends and family.”

To this, Girls’ Generation teared up as their senior showed that he understood what they were going through. As Choikang Changmin debuted in Japan before Girls’ Generation, he was able to understand how the girls felt outside of their home country more than anyone else, and the moment in which he treated the girl group like a caring older brother showed the friendship between SM Town singers.

In the final moments, Sulli cried as she thanked Tiffany and Taeyeon, who she liked before her debut, for being so nice to her and Kristal apologized to Sulli for not taking care of her more due to their age gap.

Jaejoong's Acting Teacher Ahn Naesang Was Prompted by Sohn PD of Protect The Boss



Ahn Naesang, Continues from Teaching Park Yoochun to Also Guide Jaejoong’s Acting. “Curious Coincidence”

Actor Ahn Naesang (47) is in a curious relationship with JYJ.

According to an (insider) affiliate of the drama scene, recently Ahn Naesang provided guidance to JYJ Kim Jaejoong’s acting. Kim Jaejoong is stepping out on the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama that is planned to air in August—Protect the Boss. One affiliate said: “Kim Jaejoong does have the experience of having appeared in a single-act peace (Telecinema—Postman from Heaven) and a Japanese drama (Fuji TV’s Sunao Ni Narenakute). However, because it is his first time appearing in a multi-episode drama in Korea, there were some feelings of pressure with regards to acting. But recently he received guidance on acting three to four times from Ahn Naesang and so came to have more confidence.”

Last year in the KBS2 drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Ahn Naesang played the Sungkyunkwan Scholar Jung Yakyong and appeared in a teacher-student relationship with the Sungkyunkwan student Lee Sunjun, played by Park Yoochun. Therefore, he has come to be in a teacher-student relationship with JYJ in and outside of drama.

Perhaps Park Yoochun was the person who connected the two? A close associate of Ahn Naesang said: “It was not Park Yoochun. [The guidance of Jaejoong] was initiated through the relationship Ahn Naesang had with Sohn Junghyun PD, who was the director for (the drama) Good Wives Club. Sohn PD took charge of Protect the Boss this time around and suggested that Ahn Naesang appear, but Ahn declined because it was difficult to find a time in his schedule because he came to appear in MBC’s High Kick 3. Then the PD relayed that ‘then, I put in your hands (to guide) Kim Jaejoong’s acting.’ That is how it came about.” The drama Good Wives Club is the representative work by Ahn Naesang through which he made his name and face popularly recognized. Out of a thankful heart, Ahn Naesang gladly accepted Sohn PD’s request and came to form this relationship with Kim Jaejoong.

Park Yoochun Lip Synchs On 'Miss Ripley'? The Lip Synched Proposal Has Viewers Disappointed



In the 9th episode of MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’ that aired on the 27th, Song Yoo Hyun played the piano and sang to propose to Jang Miri.

On this day, Song Yoo Hyun calls Jang Miri, who had just finished a special college lecture, to a church and turns on a slide show on a large screen that is filled with pictures of her while he sings and plays the piano.

Jang Miri sheds tears at Song Yoo Hyun’s romantic side and accepts his proposal. But the director’s decision to make Park Yoochun lip sync instead of singing live for the beautiful scene has made many viewers express their disappointment.

On the 22nd, staff of the drama who were present at a filming that occurred at a church in Gangnam, Seoul commented that they created the perfect scene with Park Yoochun’s adept piano skills and emotional voice. As his packed schedule meant that filming would have to occur in the early morning, the staff worried that Park Yoochun’s voice would be too hoarse to sing at such a time but Park Yoochun pulled through by fully utilizing the fact that he’s a singer and sang the OST piece ‘This Empty Place is For You’.

But in the actual drama, Park Yoochun was seen sitting in front of the piano but was never seen actually playing the instrument while the song was played through a BGM. Park Yoochun, who is a singer before he is an actor, had to lip sync for his drama.

Viewers who saw the episode said, “Why did they use the prerecorded OST? I’d like to know the director’s thought process”, “I don’t know why they went old-school and sat Park Yoochun in front of a piano when he’s able to both sing and play the piano”, “The scene could have been more moving but then he lip synced… that completely turned me off,” and “Because he lip synced, it actually got in the way of getting into the scene. It felt like the components of a beautiful scene didn’t work at all. I was disappointed.”

Translation of Tohoshinki's ELLE JAPON August 2011 Interview



“Changmin has become able to say what he want to say properly. He looks more biddable than ever”
- Yunho

“The amazing part of Yunho is the strong sense of responsibility I cannot imitate. He never fails to accomplish even very tough goals.“
- Changmin



TVXQ came back with a single CD “Why? Keep your head down!” released last January. This CD sold 231,000 copies only in one week and won No.1 at every Oricon chart. 1,500,000 fans applied for their release memorial event which has a capacity of only 15000. This proved the high popularity of TVXQ. Also, tickets for SMTown Paris were sold out within a day and a protest for an additional date took place. In response to the demand, a concert date was added. Thus their popularity has spread beyond Asia to Europe.

The superstar TVXQ came to Japan for the recording of their new single, which will be released on July 20, 2011. I got a chance to have an interview wit them while they are in Japan. My mission was to analyze a question “Why is TVXQ that popular?” as a sociologist. This is more complicated than it sounds, because each fan has their own reason why they love TVXQ. However, I found out that there are some common perceptions among their fans. Firstly, they are fascinated by Yunho’s amazing dance and fall in love with Changmin’s outstanding high note. Secondly, they are impressed by their “close relationship”. I will search for the answer to the question by focusing on these points.

The TVXQ members, dressed in active-looking costumes, were giving off an undeniable superstar aura, but somehow looked like pure young boys. When I introduced myself as a professor teaching at a university, Changmin said with a wicked look “I envy you” and Yunho said with a big smile “I was a university student until recently”. At the beginning of the interview, I was knocked out by the miraculous coexistence of superstar aura and friendliness, which actually every and all interviewers praise them for.


High professionalism to provide only the highest quality products

First topic was music. Various composers and songwriters have offered them songs, but they compose and write songs by themselves too. “Checkmate” Yunho composed is very popular dance tune. “Confession” Changmin recently wrote attracted public attention with the rich poetry.

Q: Yunho, you compose and write songs, right? Do you have a stock of songs?
Yunho: Yes, I have some songs in stock. They include various genres such as rock and dance tune. Some songs contain a chorus of 2 or more voices. But I’m not satisfied with any of them yet, and want to work on them more before introducing to fans. I’m looking for the right time, for example, soon or at the next tour.

Q: You have a high goal, don’t you?
Yunho: Yes, because I think it is important to create a song that will be remembered forever.

Q: Changmin, you write songs. Where do the ideas come from?
Changmin: Sometimes I write in my diary. I want to keep it on a daily basis, but I can’t because I’m too busy. I read it to write a lyric poem based on my past experiences.

Q: Which diary entry did you read recently?
Changmin: An entry from about 2 years ago. I won’t tell you what kind of the day it was (laugh).

They always keep a stock of new songs and try to refine them before bringing them out. Now we know the persistent efforts they are making behind the great works.


Strong tie of mutual trust and respect

Let’s explore their “close relationship”.

What do they think about each other?

Q: Changmin, have you thought Yunho is great recently? If yes, what is it about?
Changmin: A very strong sense of responsibility I cannot imitate. He has always been very responsible, but recently he became even more responsible.

Yunho: I’m listening while eating (catering sweets) (laugh)

Changmin: When I see him try a new job and accomplish it to the end, I’m so proud of him. Of course, I always believe he can make it, but worry at the same time because I know how much difficulty he is having. The difficulty and pressure he faces must be far greater than others can imagine. It must be very tough. But he never fails to accomplish them. That is an amazing part of Yunho.

How serious look Changmin shows when he talks about Yunho! You can feel that Changmin respects Yunho with all his heart. On the other hand, Yunho kept a gentle big-brotherly eye on Changmin, nibbling potato chips. Again, you can feel Yunho has an inordinate level of affection for Changmin.

I asked Yunho some questions while Changmin is shooting solo pictures.

Q: Changmin has been showing significant growth recently. Are there moments when you think he is still a child?
Yunho: When he makes a mistake, he really wants to apologize. But sometimes he can’t because he cares about what others think (laugh). When I see such a moment, I think he is still a cute child. But he has been grown up. He tended to hold back, just saying “I’m OK, I’m fine” before. But now he says what he wants to say properly. Personally I think this change is good for him because he must feel less stressed. Now Changmin looks more biddable than ever.

As the leader, Yunho keeps a close eye on Changmin’s growth. I believe Changmin could concentrate on his job with peace of mind because someone who really understands and cares about him is always there.


What Yunho think makes an ideal man?

Yunho is the dance king. His powerful but lithe movement touches the souls of all who see it. In fact, many people are attracted by Yunho and start dance. I asked Yunho, one of the greatest dancers in history, about how to dance well.

Yunho: I think the most important thing for dancers as well as singers is to know themselves. There are angles that make dancers look beautiful, and they vary person to person. There is a “line” that suits your figure. You need to find the line by checking yourself in front of a mirror. Check which line makes you look best. The ability to find the line a “feel”. If you have a real feel for dance, you can improve yourself quickly even if you can do only easy dance at the beginning.

Yunho’s splendid dance skill is based on his dance philosophy developed through the experiences. “To know yourself” well said. He analyzes not only Changmin but also himself. I asked one more question related to a mirror.

Q: When you look in a mirror, do you sometime think yourself good-looking?
Yunho: hahaha (laugh). Good appearance doesn’t make a real man. The important thing is to do your best to keep your promises. A real man should show his faith in action than words.


Changmin’ secret dream

It is the accepted view in the publishing industry that magazines featuring Changmin sell well. His outlook tends to draw attention, but he is good at smart talk too. He gives a clear and clever conclusion to each question with the rich vocabulary and sense of humor. He wants to try a radio DJ some day.

Q: What kind of program do you want to have?
Changmin: I’d like to have a late-night radio program. The listeners are people who have completed what they have to do for the day and are having a time of rest and relaxation . I will talk in a relaxed atmosphere. If it is a long program, I want to talk without restraint.

Q: Will you play your favorite guitarist Raul Midón’s songs on the program?
Changmin: Yes, I will. Like Stevie Wonder, Raul Midón’s is a blind artist. His guitar performance is extraordinary in a positive way. Of course, his vocal is also great. He is an artist loved by anyone who is interested in music.

Q: Are you practicing guitar now?
Changmin: I want to, but I don’t have time. I want to improve my skill, so will restart the practice some day.

What strikes me is the phase “people who have completed what they have to do”. People who properly accomplish what they have to do are Changmin himself and Yunho. From his concept of an ideal radio program, I can read his desire to support people who continue to make efforts like them.


Activities in Japan

Everyone wants to know about their plan of Japanese activities. What kind of TVXQ will they show us? First of all, I asked about their new single they have just recorded.

Yunho: The title is Superstar. It has a positive message “I want to be your superstar”.

Q: Will you sing the song at the a-nation concerts?
Yunho & Changmin (synchronized): I think we will.

Changmin: This song is just perfect for summer. Fans can chant to the song and we can have a blast together. I’m looking forward to it.

Q: You will be participating in a-nation in Ehime, Fukuoka, Aichi, Osaka and Tokyo. You can meet a lot of fans who have waited so long.
Changmin: The a-nation is a meaningful stage for us because it a kind of history of TVXQ’s Japanese activities and a testament to our past efforts. We will work on extra hard because we participate after a two-year absence.

Yunho: The advantage of an open-air concert is easy to communicate with fans. I hope we can enjoy the summer festival together with them. For that, we are preparing our performance.

Q: What are you planning to do in Japan from now on?
Changmin: The details are still being worked out in discussion with staff members. In any case, we hope to release an album as soon as possible because a considerable time has passed since we released the previous album. We are now proceeding with the plan little by little, for example, recording songs.

Yunho: We’re going to try out new genres and show you different aspects of TVXQ. I hope we can offer you a high quality product. We will do our best to deliver a nice new album as soon as possible!

Changmin emphasized “In any case,” and Yunho showed his enthusiasm saying “We’ll do our best!” Once an album is released, they will have a solo tour……. TVXQ fans have a lot to look forward to.

Let’s get back to the mission. Why is TVXQ that popular? I reached a conclusion through the interview. It’s because they continue to work hard behind the scenes, respect and love their partner, know themselves very well and try to support people who work hard. It may be an ordinary answer. Yes, these are ordinal things when you see on a paper. However, if you try to do these, you will immediately know how difficult it is. TVXQ is a superstar because they can do “ordinary things” that look easy, but are actually very hard to do at an above-average level.

Far exceeding our expectations, TVXQ came back gorgeously and gracefully. They will continue to fascinate us forever.

Jaejoong- Role Details of our Prince of Finance: Cha Muwon



Fulfills the leadership/management role in Team 2 of the strategic business unit (SBU) operating under ‘C Corporation’. He is also the paternal cousin of Cha Jihun, who is the immature youngest son of said mega corporation.

Cha Muwon’s mother, Shin Sukhee, is the president of a subsidiary company under C corporation, as well as the sister-in-law of Chairman Cha of C Corporation.

Although Cha Muwon holds the position of Team 2 Manager, in reality, he is the Control Tower of the corporation. Muwon manages both Team 2 and Team 1, which was in fact originally intended to be supervised by his cousin, Cha Jihun. Because Muwon possesses substantial leadership skills and intuitive nature, he handles inter-personal communication excellently. He also holdes himself as a gentleman at all times. He, indeed, is the Prince of the Financial World.

In an attempt to gain more management authority, he secretly set in motion several plans that would set the stage for the power struggle with his cousin. Using his mother’s subsidiary corporation as a vessel, he discreetly utilized funds to increase his shares in the C corporation. At the same time, he roped in a number of shareholders and personnel over to his side. Also a part of the plan is the marriage to his cousin’s first love, Seo Nayun, who is the eldest daughter of ‘P Corporation’ President.

In order to keep tabs on his cousin, he strategically hired No Eunsul. But his eyes keep going to her….

JYJ Concert in Gwangju's MC (Excerpts)



Part I:

JJ: You all came even in such a bad typhoon weather, it must be hard for everyone who came to Gwangju! Then, we heard that there’s a lot of people who were unable to come here. We will work hard for those empty seats, today’s concert will be even brighter! Firstly, members, please say your greetings.

JS: Hi everyone, I’m very happy to see you all. Today is a meaningful day, the long trip for 2010 World Tour will end today in Gwangju. Because we have prepared the handsome stage and performance, and the ability to interact more with everyone is good enough. Just like what was said, even though there’s a typhoon and yet you all came, really appreciate that!

YC: Hi everyone, I’m Yoochun. I’m very happy to see everyone. Junsu’s hairstyle for today is very handsome right? Jaejoong hyung and I, and I personally like this hairstyle of Junsu’s, thus was hoping to see this hairstyle. For the last performance today, Junsu especially styled this hair. Jaejoong hyung, you dyed your hair black for today too, right?

JJ: Yes, ah, erm… yes? Hahaha~


YC: No matter what, yesterday I read the weather forecast for today. This afternoon at 3pm, the typhoon warning was broadcasted right? (I) feel that with everybody’s passion and our hardworking performance, probably the typhoon would not come here. Anyway, (we) would experience the typhoon when we returned to Seoul. Because it’s the last stage today, therefore everyone seems to have came watching, with anticipation and reluctance. Today we said this when we were rehearsing, “Today is the last round,
(we) have to enjoy it well.” Thus we hoped everybody can watch it happily.

JJ: Yes, (today’s) last public performance can be the performance that round things up. And, kehahaha. Everyone has been saying if only our MC section can be longer. We will talk for a very long while today, don’t worry. Firstly, it just started, so we’ll now use our singing to thank everyone.

Part II:

JJ: Thank you. This performance will conclude with this song… I’m sorry to smile and talk at such a sad part. Ah, today is our last stop for the world tour, and also this place is, of course smaller than Busan’s, but because of the support that was not any incomparable to Busan’s, I’m really very happy, We JYJ were very blessed and very thankful. So, the last song that we all knew, and we know that (we and fans) are very reluctant to leave, but it really is the last song. If I were to continue like this, everyone will have to work hard on the internet in the end right? But can it be that it was the world tour’s last stop, our members would like to say a few words, lastly, let’s say our greetings one by one.

YC: Starting from me? Okay, in fact, if we were unable to have a concert, we wouldn’t have the chance to meet everyone, isn’t it? Right? Therefore, with such thoughts, no matter the singles we have prepared, the albums we have prepared, even though it was prepared, there’s no stages for us to perform. There were times of disheartened during productions, there were times like these. But because we debuted as singers, therefore we would want to be happy with everyone again at stage like this, the place that we adored the most. It is more meaningful than any broadcast, than any stage, the place that we loved the most is a concert performance. Due to the worldwide album, we are really thankful to be able to stand at a stage like this, it feels very good. Of course every member is very busy. What is the most important thing, what is the thing that we need the most, we also would want to remember that JYJ is not a normal name only. Hoped that everyone can continue to give us the support. We really hoped to meet everyone with an even more handsome public performance. Thank you.

JS: Today is the last stop for this year, and the last stop for the tour and what’s left is the next song. Although we have stood on many stages, but with the name of JYJ, and to once again breathe in the same place with everyone, it was the most basic to me, but was also the most difficult place. Therefore, our tour for this year was not spreading strength, it’s where we received strength, it would be good if this strength can last us till the end of this year. No matter when, although we have always said this, but we really want to truthfully thank everyone. Thank you.

JJ: So, this is the last song. Our story will continue in the future, and will present with no limits to everyone, a better look, a more suave look. We feel that the road for us in the future will still be endless. There are a lot of things to do, a lot of hurdles to overcome, there are a lot of newcomers too, and (we) also heard a bit about fans ‘climbing over the walls’ (T/N: changed to other idols-loving, i.e.) But, there are not much time, and we’ve aged. Recently, if I did not shave for one day, facial stubble could be seen, if we did not eat for a meal… the belly that did not protrude will also be out, it’s as though we have hit our first phase of andropause.

JJ: First and foremost, our passion and the things we wanted to do in the future that’s yet to be done, now is the ideal we had during preparation as trainees. Through that ideal, we feel that we will be more confident and grow even more. If the heart that believed in us will continue to support us, then we will do it with all our best effort till the end. Is there anyone who is in their third phase of menopause/andropause? Hahaha. Joking. Then… I’m sorry. Created such an ambiguous atmosphere. Firstly, we JYJ have worked hard for the tour, it was hard for everyone too. Presenting to everyone the last song, In Heaven.

Jaejoong Says: Junsu Texted Me As If There Was An Emergency But...



The JYJ World Tour which had a splendid run of 2 months was revealed.

Drama "Miss Ripley" Song Yoo Hyun, Natural "Chaebol" Face

(T/N: “Chaebol” is defined as a family-owned conglomerate, but is used in this context to refer to a person who comes from a rich & powerful family. )

MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley” has been enjoying high viewership ratings and popularity. In this drama, Jang Miri’s “lies” reflect how a society that focuses on paper qualifications forces her into forging her resume.



Also, playing the male lead in this drama is “Mr. P”, who is an actor-cum-singer in an idol group, and is one of the front runners as a Hallyu star. Due to his participation, there has been more attention on this drama.

In the drama, Song Yoo Hyun is the heir to Mondo Group, which owns resorts all over the world. Song Yoo Hyun has an attractive appearance, tall stature, a rich family background, abilities that surpasses the masses as well as a kind character. For Song Yoo Hyun to be able to express this warm charisma of a conglomerate heir so perfectly, what is his secret? Although his performance as a conglomerate heir is good, but could it be his appearance that makes this performance so outstanding?

When analyzed from a cosmetic surgery angle, he has a natural “chaebol” appearance. Last year, he was also chosen as “the male artist whose face is prettier and gentler than a woman,” making him a hot topic. Without any “sharp edges” on his face, exuding a fashionable city image, his clear white skin and well defined features make him a perfect canvas to portray a “chaebol.”

Due to the role, he is often seen in crisp, smooth suits, and his “straight shoulders”, tall stature and slim figure accentuates the fit of the tailored suits. Also, his polite mannerisms and kind voice, warm and calm expressions etc, are all important elements that enable him to play the role of the conglomerate heir perfectly.



Park Wonjin, from Wonjin Plastic Surgery said, “Slender and gentle facial lines, a fuller upper lip, as well as slightly high cheekbones are elements that bring about a boyish look from a “gentle and small” face. Especially since Song Yoo Hyun’s face is extremely close to the golden ratio of 1:1:1, a small face coupled with well defined features, brings about a modern and fashionable feeling.

Viewers who are immersed in the drama will judge the drama on how well the actors fit the roles that they play. The natural “chaebol” role of Song Yoo Hyun has attracted significant attention and definitely had an impact on “Miss Ripley.” Analyzing the characters’ appearances, images and roles is probably part of the entertainment when watching a drama as well!

Translation of Unreleased Parts for TAXI



How do you meet you girlfriend with your hectic schedules?

Changmin: Isn’t there a saying that “Edelweiss that blooms on cliff is especially beautiful”? It’s really difficult till that extent. It’s not an easy task. Even when in a relationship, there are restraints due to my busy schedule. I wanted to be together and hold hands with the girl, but because I unable to do it, it hurt the other party. There are girls introduced by friends and some I naturally met. I have confessed to girl before, we met in a simple encounter.

Yunho has made a heart using candles

Yunho: That’s because I had a quarrel with my girlfriend and thus I prepared this as an apology and made up with her.

TVXQ’s dorm life

Actually, Yunho does not only accidentally treat Changmin’s undergarment as his and wore it, but Changmin’s clothes as well…

Changmin: As for Yunho wearing my pants, I’ve given up on that.

Both of you has your own rooms; is there a time where you will think “Let’s sleep in the same room today”?

Yunho: We didn’t have this thought before, but there are incidents where both of us are really tired and we fall asleep together in the living room.

Changmin and Yunho's Q&A on ELLE JAPON



QUESTION for Changmin

Q1. Which country did you visit recently?

A1 I visited Waikiki, Hawaii for photo shoot. I felt refreshed in the nice weather and beautiful landscapes. One of our staff members is always saying he want to live in Hawaii in the future, so I’m interested in Hawaii too. It was attractive more than I heard from him. I had time to relax and go shopping.

Q2 . You began boxing last summer. Are you still doing it?
A2 No, I’m too busy to have time to do boxing. But I’m willing to do any exercise because sweating through exercise is a good way of getting rid of stress.

Q3. You have a lot of opportunities to work with hubaes now. What will you do as a sonbae?
A3. Some are younger than me, but most of them are close in age. So I don’t think “I should do something as a sonbae” or “I should talk to them” or something like that. I know I’m a sonbae for the hubaes, but I don’t want to be bossy. I prefer to get along with them as friends as far as they have most basic manners.


QUESTION for Yunho

Q1. Which country did you visit recently?

A1. I went Toronto to appear as a dancer in a movie starring BoA. I met some famous dancers I know only from TV too. They dance well, have good manners and come up with fine ideas. We choreographed a dance together, frankly exchanging views. We got along just fine.

Q2. What sort of impressions did you get from Toronto?
A2. What strikes me is that people are living relaxed in that quest city. The movie crews were also relaxed. I’m almost always working on a busy place, so it was as if I had a holiday. I had a nice relaxed time.

Q3. You are always positive. Are there any moments when you think “I can’t go on any longer”?
A3. I’m a human being, so there are moments when I feel I can’t go on any longer (laugh). But a man should do his best once he has started something whatever the results. I don’t want to have any regrets. I do stick to something to the end to make it a good memory once I have started it.

Park Yong Ha's Mother Talks About Jaejoong



[TRANS]

Jaejoong is a kid who has a warm heart, and so he telephones from time to time to make conversation with me—“Mother, please take care to have your meals properly.”

One day, while we were exchanging texts back and forth, he said: “What kind (of food) do you like?” And so when I sent: “I’ll think about it (and let you know),” he immediately called me to say—“Mother, how do you feel about crabs?”

When I told him “Ah, they are good,” he invited me to an extremely nice restaurant and treated me to a splendid meal.

Yunho said, “I’ve never worried as much as I did this time before. While working overseas, I continued my rehearsals and knew that I could trust my partner Claudia.”

Kim Jaejoong's 'Creative Challenge Shone' Brightly



The directing skills of ‘Director Kim’ has made JYJ(Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu)’s concert shine brighter. Kim Jaejoong was in charge of the tour’s Asia leg which took place in Thailand, Taiwan, China, Japan and Korea from April 2nd with the concept ‘Creative challenge’. The concert tour spanned across ten cities in seven countries and held its encore performance at the Yeom Joo Gymnasium in Gwangju on the 26th.

The most prominent characteristic of the Asia leg that Kim Jaejoong directed is the fact that the concerts were ‘interaction concerts’ that succeeded through a harmony that is created by the fans in the audience and the members. JYJ and their fans interacted and connected through their music. A special moment was during ‘Found You’ when both the singers and fans shouted ‘I love you’ during the chorus as they became one to create an exciting performance.

In the June 11th and 12th Busan concerts, a triangular projected stage design was used to ensure that the members could be seen from every angle. Busan, the final location of the world tour, was visited by 17,000 fans across two performances that sold out and reaped in great successes.

At the time, Kim Jaejoong said, “We worked hard to create a stage that was more special than those in the world tour,” and “We will work hard to make this an opportunity for us to grow.” He expressed his joys of connecting with his fans as he said, “We tried to talk a lot during the performance, and I’m glad we did.”

To the fans, Kim Jaejoong asked, “It would be nice if we had lots of concerts, right?” He then promised, “I’m happy that we were able to see that we’re loved by many people in North America, as well as Asia. Next time, we’ll be back with better songs and performances.”

At the Gwangju concert, the members acted out a parody of KBS 2TV’s ‘Gag Concert’, which they confessed to watching on a regular basis, and made their audience laugh. Each member’s solo performance also enhanced the quality of the concert. ‘I love You’, ‘I can soar’, and ‘Still in Love’ showed off each member’s unique color and showcased a different and sophisticated stage with their female dancers.

Kim Jaejoong said, “As this is our last concert, I want it to be one that gives us lots of close interaction with our audience and isn’t one that feels too structured. JYJ have even planned some surprise events,” and “Support us and believe in us till the end.” The audience replied by giving him a sincere round of applause.

Kim Jaejoong showed off his adept directing skills when he took on the role of directing ‘Rhythm Gymnastic Princess’ Sohn Yeon Jae’s first gala show at the Hwajung Gymnasium in Korea University. He was recognized for his work as he chose the right music, stage effects, choreography and costumes to create a lively performance.

Having pulled off a ‘Creative Challenge’ through JYJ’s world tour, Kim Jaejoong will be greeting domestic drama viewers with the SBS drama ‘Protect The Boss’. He will be taking on the role of Cha Moo Won, ‘the prince of the financial world’, and many are curious to see what new ‘Creative challenge’ he will bring to the drama.

As their second single this year, TOHOSHINKI will be Releasing ‘Superstar’ on July 20th. We would like to introduce this ‘a little matured’ – summer tune!!

Superstar is someone with an undeniable aura and power, who gives energy to those who see him/her. On screens, on field, on battle ring, and of course on stage, “Superstar” sheds bright light and stands firmly with unquestionable presence. It is an undeniable fact that Tohoshinki, Yunho and Changmin, are “Superstars”.

Countless fans are waiting to hear their music. Tickets for any event that they take a part, are sold out with a blink of a second; a ticket transforms into a Platinum Ticket.

Even a single movement in their eyes, a single site of them dance with such grace, …every step, every gesture on stage, grabs the eyes of the audience. Their beautiful voice and their spicy and edgy rap, becomes the sound of enchantment. Absorbs ones who listen, not only through the ears, but through all five senses. This rejoice, becomes the energy and drive of their fans for tomorrow. This power, is the proof that they are true ‘Superstars’.

That Tohoshinki will be releasing its new single “Superstar”. The single will be featuring ‘I Don’t Know’, a tie-up song for a commercial that they appear, which is already been digitally distributed. They are taking their step towards the summer, with this single that truly reflect the “Current” Tohoshinki, a single that can enable you to feel the breath of true Tohoshinki.

This new single starts off with the titles song “Superstar” with its electro sound intro. The song begins with a sound, a perfect unity of R&B and Electro, a tone that feels like numerous atoms of true digital sound bursting in ears. The lyrics give the breeze of summer, expressing the passionate love story, shining like a bright star; like the superstar. The emotions that the two in love share is brought to life with the sound and the words, and by the beautiful voice of Yunho and Changmin. The main verse’s moving and upbeat tune truly resemble THE “Summertime Love”, touching the listeners in such emotional way. Yunho’s sharp rap and Changmin’s high tone are just reminding listeners of the sound of “Tohoshinki”.

As they continue to further strengthening the taste of Tohoshinki, the evolved presence is inscribed in every sound of the “Superstar”. And the track that just heats up the fans, would prepare for their busy summer. Now that it is confirmed that they will be performing at a-nation, the picture of the two performing this song with such passion can easily be imagined. When they actually perform this song on stage, they will again show the god-like glow; as superstars. The song has the energy to bring out such anticipation.

The heat that is created by their performance, it is with such impact that its even shocking, leaving a memory that can never be forgotten. Watching videos of their performance… you relive the moment. This song has the same power. Power to put you right back into that place. Maybe this is, again, another proof that they are superstars…

The coupling song of the CD is ‘I Don’t Know’, a featured song in the Sogo Group Commercial, which Yunho and Changmin dancing with the adorable silver bear. This already digitally distributed upbeat song will also be in the CD. You feel the similar, but evolved, beat that you ‘Felt’ when you listen to ‘WHY?(KYHD)’ can also be felt with this song. This song brings out their distinctive ability to express emotions. At the same time, the beat is very pop, matches so well with their sharp dance. Another song great for live performances. Changmin’s voice dances so gracefully in high notes, while Yunho’s deep rap grabs the listeners’ hearts. It feels like, by coupling with ‘Superstar’, the CD has become sort of an invitation from Tohoshinki to their live performances. Once in your hand, you just can’t resist.

The CD will be sold in multiple versions.

‘I Don’t Know’ music video is included in the CD+DVD version. And also the behind the scene of the music video filming will be included in the Initial Sales Limited version. And for the type that is CD only, the Summer Heat Remix version of the ‘Superstar’ will be added as the bonus track. The song sounds like a completely different song. Heat, becoming even hotter and greater, the fans will be just so happy to see this kind of energy. The Initial Sales Limited version includes the deluxe photo booklet, which you can enjoy Tohoshinki in high quality photos.

And the third version is the Seven&I Limited version, CD+DVD. This version doesn’t have the instrumental versions of Superstar nor I Don’t Know. The CD is rather simple, with just two songs, but it comes with commercials and behind the scene footages. These special footages really enable you to see the real Tohoshinki.

Because they are superstars, we don’t get the opportunities to see their true sides off the stage. But seeing those behind the scene footages really makes you realize how the two has not changed since their debut as Tohoshinki. Down to earth. True to self. Their singing voice continued to evolve, their charm and allurement do in fact grew and became irresistible. But their love and care for their fans, their dedication and desire to put all of their heart in singing- unchanged. The power of Yunho and Changmin. All of those can be felt through this CD.

Prepare yourself for the striking live performances of Tohoshinki this summer with this new single, ‘Superstar!’

JYJ Seems Likely To Appear On TV on July 20; Ad on Jeju Also Around July 11

These tweets by an affiliate of Jeju are too short and abbreviated to allow full and precise comprehension of what the tweeter is trying to say. For instance, it is ambiguous whether the TV advertisement will actually show JYJ, although it is clear that it will be to promote Jeju. In any case, let’s hope for the best!!



The international stars JYJ will appear on (the program) “7 Wonders of the World, Here is Jeju” that will air on July 20, from 5:20pm to 7:00pm. The location is Sungsanilchulbong, and entrance begins at 4:30pm of the same day. We ask that many of you view the program and visit Jeju!

Kim Junsu, "I would like to act out musicals in theaters too."



“Falling in love with musicals, next year, the year after next, I would like to act out musicals in theatres.” Moving onward from Xiah Junsu to Kim Junsu, he met us in a cafe at Cheongdam-dong on the 29th.

Upon talking about musicals, this new actor who debuted in musical field for 2 years would passionately discussed with us, but when facing burdensome inquiries, he would be alike to the idol singer who debuted for 8 years, displaying his experiences and confidence.

Within the idols who challenged musicals, Kim Junsu is definitely the topic. Other than the subsequent lead acting of great works, the tickets that were sold out within a short time, the high performance fee etc, were the topics of discussion.



Even though the raging topics, why did you decided to step in with musicals from the start?

“It’s just the right timing. Although I did received projects from movies, dramas and there are free slots in between schedules…. but compared to anything, music is still the most important. So I was thinking since it a must to have music, why not take a try at musicals? When I first acted in musicals, I did not think that I would end up loving it. (laughs)”

After the debut musical ‘Mozart’, you were asked to lead in ‘Tears of Heaven’, this simply is a follow-up victory.

“I seems to have slightly understood what musical is about until recently. In the beginning, it felt very tiring even though there’s no mistake made, now I’m slowly learning through the amicable cooperation with the other actors… and starts to notice the reactions of the audience. Thus the musical performances for every day is different.” He continued introducing the so-called ’3 seconds difference’ on stage. “There is a scene in Mozart where I followed the Baroness, how many seconds should I back-faced the audience after finishing my lines so that I can display to the audience the feel that I wanted? The most suitable timing is about 3 seconds. (laughs)”

Other than this, he was often pointed out that his delivery of lyrics was not as strong as professional musical actors.

“Singing in musical is totally different from singing songs. For example, the usage of ‘banding’ (a singing technique where the note was dragged and blended into the next word) was not appropriate. The lyrics has to be sang out one word by one word. Compared to other actors, maybe it was not easily differentiate but it would still be better that l changed my way of singing.”



As a musical actor and actively as an idol singer, do you feel that you have slowly became closer to any character?

“But if I were to stand on JYJ’s stage now and to sing with my way of singing in musical, it would probably be a torture to the members. Even my hand signals has slowly increased. (laughs) I think for me right now, it is to slowly forwarding towards the way of ‘Even if I was a singer, I’m also a musical actor.’ Just as though there’s a switch in between the two, where I can freely move around.”

There were a lot of controversies. Like the rumours of ten millions of performance fees and the ability to become the male lead due to the investment by the company (you belonged) etc. When asked about the question of ‘idol glamour’, Kim Junsu surprisingly gave a calm and outright attitude while giving an answer.

“I understand that the choir department actors were able to stand on stage after working hard for a long while. I received this ‘gift’ of being the lead actor after my hardwork as a singer, this is at least how my thought is. As for the high performance fee rumours, I think it’s not only in musical that there are such rumours right? No matter it be drama or CF, there were many issues for the receipt of fees that broke records too… It’s just that the musical industry was so bad and thus the unique appearance of such rumours, right?”

Do you have any contributions that you wanted to do or ambitions that you have in the future involvement into musicals?

“Next year, or the year after, I would like to act in theatres. If I can be ambassador-like and create the effect of supporting musicals, it would be a rather grateful thing. But to do till such, the first step should be having audience who watch, and to have the love of the public, then the public performance can be a success, and followed on by more investors. Therefore, the production company and actors will be able to create a more fruitful work, and afterwhich wouldn’t there be a possible promotion to overseas?”

Due to the contract issue between JYJ and ex-company SM, the broadcasting activities were restricted by their contract. (T/N: JYJ was not directly restricted due to contractual problems. Refer to legal news.)

“It’s currently still in an unclear state. Due to the difficulties currently, we just have to try working in other directions, this is very exhausting. If there were things we wished to do, we’d have to think about how to do it in another way, and then not to give up on any hope.”

He is currently a young adult of 24 years old, are there any plans for army enlistment? He jokingly replied, “When performing the story in ‘Tears of Heaven’, I ever thought, ‘Why not bring forward the enlistment, it actually would be not a bad experience, isn’t it!’.”

“I received a health check last February and of course it’s a must to enlist for army. (laughs) The results for the health check is 3rd grade (note: 3rd grade is for person who had injuries but still able to be enlisted in army and an approximate of 22 months.) There’s a bit of disappointment for the results. I’m a man afterall, and has the pride of a man, I thought the results will be of 1st grade. Hopefully I can be enlisted after maximizing the activities I can do.”

We asked about the greatest change after involving in musicals.

“During the empty period (lawsuit with SM), musical came to me, and now I only listened to music from musicals. I hope to become an actor who is able to inspire and touch the audience.”

Acting Idol Awards for the first half of 2011



Starring in variety shows, dramas, and other TV programs through the small screen are one of the best ways for idol stars to connect with their fans. For this reason, it has become a big phenomenon to be a guest on the popular variety shows. This is also the reason for the increase in idol singers gaining popularity through starring in various TV shows. There are also many idols starring in dramas while maintaining their base profession as a singer.

Sports Seoul recently surveyed 100 idol group members, to see who the best ‘idol actor/actress’ and ‘variety idol’ was for the first half of 2011. Through this survey, the public was able to see the idol’s talent and skills shown in other areas rather than just performances on stage.



Best of variety, MC… Best ‘variety idol’?

The top variety show program of 2011, chosen by idol singers, was MBC’s ‘We Got Married‘. Male and female celebrities are chosen and paired to play a part in a virtual marriage which is more than enough to stimulate interest from the idol stars. Curiosity also plays a big part in the attention since fellow idol stars such as, T-ara’s Eun Jung, 2PM’s Nichkhun, f(x)’s Victoria and other idols are currently starring in the show. Idol stars who picked ‘We Got Married’ as their number 1, showed their desires to also appear on the show stating, “It would be fun to film and date at the same time“, and “I want to experience the sweet virtual marriage life.”

KBS 2TV’s ‘Happy Sunday- 1 night 2 days‘ was also chosen as one of most popular variety shows along with “We Got Married“. Recently, ‘1 night 2 days’ aired some specials (inviting special guest stars), such as ‘Female Celebrities Special‘ and ‘Luxurious Supporting Actors Special‘. Idol stars stated, “‘1 night 2days’ is the end of all real variety shows“, “I want to make memories while traveling“, and “I want to travel all around Korea while having the cast’s support,” showing their affection towards the show.

Now, the ultimate question was, who is the best MC chosen by idol stars? To no one’s surprise, the best MC was voted as none other than Yoo Jae Suk (39), who is currently actively hosting across 3 different networks. Idols have rated Yoo Jae Suk, who is hosting in promising shows such as KBS 2TV’s ‘Happy Together‘, MBC’s ‘Infinite Challenge‘, and SBS’s ‘Running Man‘, to have “hosting skills that keeps the flow moving” and having “sub-par excellence in the wittiest jokes“. One particular idol praised Yoo Jae Suk of being “the generous MC who also takes care of all the new stars.”

ZE:A’s Kwanghee was, chosen as the best idol to show excellence and talent in variety shows. He gave off an extraordinary vibe in different shows such as, MBC’s ‘Three Wheels‘, and SBS’s ‘Strong Heart‘. Even fellow idol stars admitted that he was gifted with the ability to succeed in variety shows. Idols stated, “He has earned the image of the ‘Blue Chip of Plastic Surgery’ on variety shows after fearlessly revealing his true self,” “He has mind blowing reactions,“ and “His blunt truthfulness is very attractive.”



The Best drama, and the best ‘idol actor’?

The top 3 dramas that stole many idol’s hearts were SBS’s ‘Secret Garden‘, MBC’s ‘Greatest Love‘, and KBS 2TV’s ‘Dream High‘. All three dramas had a common factor of making celebrities as central figures.

‘Secret Garden’s’ Hallyu star, Oscar (Yoon Sang Hyun), and ‘Greatest Love’s’ top star Dok Go Jin (Cha Seung Won) stirred the hearts of the audience, especially those of the idols. Idols were also attracted and interested in appearing in these dramas because they were able to connect with the characters who were in similar situations. Idols who had voted for ‘Greatest Love’ said, “The story line was original and the protagonist was cool.” Those who had voted for ‘Secret Garden’ said, “The plot wasn’t boring,” and “In addition to both male and female protagonist’s charm, I fell in love with the OST, ‘That Man’“. Singers who rated ‘Dream High’ as their favorite said, “It was easy to connect with those with the same dream,” and “It was a drama that filled my eyes and ears with joy.”

Starring in the most talked about MBC drama, ‘Miss Ripley‘, JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun(25) was rated as the ‘best idol actor’ amongst idol stars. Last year in KBS’s 2TV’s drama, ‘Sunkyungwan Scandal‘, Yoo Chun officially took the challenge of acting and started getting critiqued as an actor. He attracted the audience’s attention with his handsome looks and impressive crying scene that was hard to find in rookie actors. Fellow idol stars said that through ‘Miss Ripley’, Yoo Chun had shown a great improvement in his acting skills. He was critiqued as “Working as a part of the cast in both dramas, he has assured his place as an actor,” and “He is composed and shows confidence in his acting,” and “He plays his part very well.”

1. Secret Garden, Greatest Love: 67.2%
3. Dream High: 34.5%
4. City Hunter: 18%

If Only Girls' Generation and TVXQ Would Appear On Immort Music Classics Season 2...



With many idols being confirmed to appear in KBS 2TV’s ‘Immortal Music Classics Season 2′, anticipation for the show continues to rise. 4Men’s Shin Yong Jae has been added to the list of participants, foreshadowing a fierce competition to come.

The line up of ‘Immortal Music Classics Season 2′ has been amazing. MBLAQ’s G.O., FT Island’s Lee Hong Gi and 2PM’s Junsu have been added to the cast, making the show a stage where popular idols will battle it out in a fight of ego and pride

But netizens are still feeling a hint of disappointment at this star-studded list . It is because there has been no news of Girls’ Generation or TVXQ, the royalty of the K-pop scene, joining the show.

Regarding this, a representative of Girls’ Generation and TVXQ’s agency stated, “Though it would be great if TVXQ and Girls’ Generation were added to the cast of ‘Immortal Music Classics Season 2′, it is impossible to make changes in their schedule for the show.” Girls’ Generation have concerts in Japan till late July and will be returning to Korea for more concerts. TVXQ are also busy with their domestic and overseas schedules. U-Know Yunho is already participating in SBS’ ‘Kiss&Cry’ and his appearance in the drama ‘Poseidon’ is still yet to be confirmed.

Regardless, netizens are still hoping that the two groups will appear on the show. Most were seen saying, “We hope that TVXQ or Girls’ Generation will appear on ‘Immortal Music Classics Season 2′ to complete the show’s dream team.”

Yoochun's New Ripley Haircut



The big change has been teased for a while, but the stills are out to prove it at last: Park Yoochun finally sheds the bowl cut he’s been rockin’ for ten episodes of his MBC melodrama Miss Ripley and unveils a shorter, fresher, frankly much more attractive hairstyle for upcoming episodes.

Sure, the straight-banged helmet hair he’s been sporting thus far had its own boyish effect, which worked with his character’s innocent appeal and good-natured optimism. Still, change is good, no? The shorter look ages him a little, which is good since it makes him look a little more masculine, and a little less “There there, eat your vegetables and I’ll tell you a bedtime story.”

No doubt this external change mirrors an internal one for his chaebol character, Song Yoo-hyun, in Miss Ripley. In recent episodes, he’s been enjoying his blossoming romance with liar-liar-tight-pants-on-fire (anti-)heroine Miri (Lee Da-hae), but as her lies quickly grow from molehill proportions to mountains, no doubt there’s more angst in the couple’s future.

Miss Ripley airs Mondays and Tuesdays, and Yoochun’s new look will be revealed in Monday’s Episode 11.

TVXQ Have Laid Low Since Returning From Paris, What Have They Been Up To...



Since firing up Paris, France, TVXQ have been busy with their domestic and overseas activities.

Releasing their new single ‘Superstar’ on July 20th, TVXQ will be kicking in with their Japanese activities. They have already proved their worldwide popularity at Le Zenith de Paris on June 10th and 11th when they participated in the ‘SM Town Live World Tour in Paris’ performance to commemorate the 2010-2012 Visit Korea Year.

At the time, international fans flocked to the De Gaulle Airport to catch a glimpse of TVXQ, causing chaos to ensue. European fans prepared placards in Korean and a variety of balloons and banners, even singing TVXQ’s hit songs in Korean to show their love for the group.

On the other hand, according to TVXQ’s official Japanese homepage(toho-jp.net) on June 16th, the group’s new single will contain the title song ‘Superstar’ and ‘I Don’t Know’, the theme song for the TV commercial of the ‘Sogo Seibu Card’, which has been airing since May.

After releasing their new single, TVXQ will be participating in a-nation, Japan’s biggest summer music festival. TVXQ will be standing on that stage for the first time in two years.

TVXQ are planning to participate in both Japanese and domestic schedules from now on. U-Know Yunho is currently working hard to hone his figure skating skills for SBS’ ‘Kiss And Cry’.

U-Know Yunho Says, "I Skated In The Streets Of Europe For Kiss & Cry"

Why was U-Know Yunho clenching his teeth?

In the second pair competition of ‘Kiss&Cry’ that was held at the SBS Ilsan Production Center on June 21st, U-Know Yunho signaled an extravagant revival with a charismatic performance.

Because of his recent concert schedule in Europe, U-Know Yunho has not been able to practice his skating for a period of time. This meant that his partner Claudia had to attend the mid-week assessment alone, causing fans to worry about his future stance in the competition.



The worry was heightened by the fact that U-Know Yunho placed 8th out of ten teams in the first competition due to the mistakes he made while performing.

But U-Know Yunho partook in the second competition and had the ‘Rose Evaluators’ fired up with his extravagant dancing and b-boying skills.

After his performance, U-Know Yunho said, “I’ve never been so worried about a competition as I was for this one. But I rehearsed my part on the ground because I didn’t have access to a skating rink, and I had faith in my partner Claudia.” During his stay in Europe, U-Know Yunho took every minute of spare time he had to put on his skates and rehearse his routine, whether he was in his hotel or on the streets.

His partner Claudia was moved when she heard how hard U-Know Yunho worked to find time to rehearse.

Hayato's Blog Updates
Trans of the already deleted article



T/N: Hayato has deleted this post approx 8 hours after posting, but I have taken the capped image, and consider the info somewhat important. So I went on with the trans.

X DAY

I know it is all my fault, but the readers who check this website has decreased a lot.
I think I was disliked at a breath.

The number of readers are about one-third(Lol)


But those who did not abandon me can now get special news.
When you say news, there are small ones to big scoops.


Are you a mere shadow of your true self after the charity concert?
I will make you wake up at once in the near future.


The X DAY is August (Chances: so-so), and October (Chances: 20%)...?
(T/N: Hayato is writing in Japanese "確立 (kakuritsu)" which means "establishment", but I think he made a mistyped it, it should be "確率(kakuritsu)" which means "chances".

What am I talking about? I should be dropping tantalizing hints.
You would know when it becomes August and October. (of course)
When I say the chances are 20%, the chances which it will not realize (the chances that you will be disappointed) will be still 80%. So let's wait without raising our hopes too high.

But, don't you think that the hope to live on can be raised by thinking that there might be something in addition?:)

The PV for their new song arrived. This is "ZIP" exclusive!
EXCLUSIVE! TOHOSHINKI MV!

(0:40-)
Tohoshinki's new single in half a year, "I don’t know". The filming place for this MV was taken place in a warehouse in Tokyo.

Yunho: This is the last dance session for today. Let's do our best!!!

In the music video, they are singing, standing between the big pendulums (which stands for the image of the song)...

Changmin: It's not a real one, but it seems like a real one. There were moments when I thought "What shall I do if I bump in to one of them."

Yunho: It's fake, but it is much harder than I've imagined.

They were dancing where there was no air conditioning, so it was difficult to prevent overheat.
Tohoshinki's new song will be released on the 20th of this month.

TVXQ’s Yunho puts on a perfect performance for “Kiss & Cry”



After coming in eighth place on the previous round in “Kiss & Cry“, TVXQ’s Yunho and Claudia Mueller redeemed themselves by putting on a perfect performance to an eclectic mix of waltz and the Black Eyed Peas‘ “Boom Boom Pow“.

On the episode that aired on July 3rd, Yunho confessed that he had even less time for practice this time around. He said, “I lost a lot of confidence because of last time. I’m really worried. I haven’t been able to practice for real. I actually got back the day before yesterday.”

Yunho was in Paris for the “SM TOWN Live in Paris” concert, so he could not practice with Claudia. Because of this, he took his skates with him to Paris and practiced on the street.

The theme for this performance was “Ballerina meets a B-boy“. They showed a nice lift skill and all kinds of dance moves that wowed the judges and the crowd.

Judges commented, “It was nice to see Claudia so into b-boying”, “You guys really seemed to be having fun”, “Yunho, you are born to be an entertainer.”

Yunho added, “I’ve been really sorry to Claudia because of my busy schedule. I will buy her sweet and sour pork, like I promised.”

The script practice, which took place in the drama practice room of the Ilsan Production Center on the 29th, was congenial from the beginning to end. The enthusiasm of the actors who were overflowing with live energy despite meeting for the first time heightened the atmosphere of the set.

Ji Sung who is attempting a daring transformation through the role of Cha Jihun who is the immature youngest son of a Chaebol corporation who has a quirky side appeared in a unique hairstyle resmiscent of Miyagi Ryota of the popular manga Slam Dunk and gathered all eyes.

Choi Kanghee, who will collaborate with Ki Sung, also stepped outside of the sophisticated bob she had until now to have long straight hair with bangs emitting innocence and thus gathered eyes.

Kim Jaejoong, who is challenging himself for the first time in a domestic drama through Boss announced his refreshing start through a comfortable and natural reading of the script. He will play Cha Muwon, the “Prince of the Financial World” who has powerful abilities. Jaejoong will play a perfect man but at the same time he will have a comic contest with Ji Sung who will play his cousin.

Wang Jihye also put herself to script practice in a lively and effervescent manner throughout the session. Park Youngkyu, Cha Hwayeon, Kim Chung and such established actors and their veteran acting shined also on the set of the script practice.

The production company replayed: “Thanks to the attention-absorbing script of Protect the Boss, a refreshing and lively romantic comedy, the filming set burst into one laughter after another. The expectations for the actors and the production team of Protect the Boss which has begun to film in earnest are also in abundance. We ask for much attention and anticipation for Protect the Boss which will gift fresh and delightful laughter to the viewers.”

Jaejoong Appears as the Corporation's Interviewer for "Boss"

Kim Jaejoong Appears in His First Domestic Drama. “Emits a Chic Appeal”



For an interview, Choi Kanghee even braved dancing.

Protect the Boss, which will air as the follow-up to the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama City Hunter on August 3, is an unprecedented sweet-thrills (comedy) that will unfold as a rookie female secretary meets as her boss a delinquent second generation chaebol and stars a “Tame the Delinquent Chaebol Project.”

In the first episode, Choi Kanghee playing Noh Eunsul comes to interview in ten companies in order to secure a job. She is from a regional university and even has poor grades and therefore has repeated defeats in interviews. In order to compete with elites from prestigious universities she sometimes shows off dancing and singing, makes a kick-boxing pose, and even shows the lines of her hand (for palm reading) to the interviewer.



And when she is disregarded (rudely) by the interviewers, she teared up, impassionedly proclaiming: “Everyone (makes judgments and) says that this person is good, that one is bad. But, (you are wrong), it’s that this person is good at doing this, and that one is good at doing that. You interviewers who only consider test scores and credentials thinking that those are the only measures of abilities seem even stupider (than I am).”

For the scene of the interview, Choi Kanghee filmed multiple times over many days in Ilsan Kintex and Youngdeungpo Hotels and such. Kim Jaejoong appeared as an interviewer in the middle and gathered all eyes.

The producers were confident: “Our drama blows away frustration and is refreshing. But it will also give a gift of empathy, through episodes that speaks for the hearts of many youths who feel the walls of the difficult job market in reality.”

On the other hand, Boss will have Ki Sung, Choi Kanghee, Kim Jaejoong, Wang Jihye, Park Youngkyu, Cha Hwayeon, Kim Chung, and others appear. It will begin airing on August 3rd, 9:55pm.

TVXQ, "To Grace The Cover Of Rolling Stone's August Issue Feels Great"



TVXQ have become the first Korean singers to grace the cover of Rolling Stone. Considering the fact that it is hard for even Japanese celebrities to be on the cover, regardless of the fact that it is the Japanese version of the magazine, this is an achievement that is meaningful and should be noted.

Most importantly, TVXQ’s popularity seemed to have been drooping slightly from their top Hallyu star status when some of the members filed an exclusive contract suspension lawsuit against SM Entertainment. However, U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin, who are keeping the name of TVXQ alive, have proven their undiminished popularity as idols and as Koreans by gracing the cover of Rolling Stone.

The Japanese version of Rolling Stone has had only ten Japanese celebrities on its cover, starting with Nakashima Mika in 2008. This further proves TVXQ’s influence in Japan as their appearance on the magazine’s cover is unusual.

A representative of SM stated, “We heard that it isn’t easy for even Japanese stars to be on the cover of Rolling Stone. It feels great to see TVXQ grace the cover of the popular magazine.”

The August issue of Rolling Stone will be available on the 8th.

Park Yoochun "Sungkyunkwan Scandal vs. Miss Ripley" - How Much Has He Matured?



Actor Park Yoochun, in his second acting challenge, has been praised for showing a charm and maturity in his acting that differs from his first drama.

Park Yoochun announced his entrance into the acting world via last year’s KBS drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” and recently returned as “Song Yoo Hyun” the gentle conglomerate heir in MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley.” In his previous role he played a rigid and critical “pretty rich boy,” and swept the KBS Drama Awards ‘ newcomer award as well as the best newcomer and popularity awards at the 47th Baeksang Art Awards, successfully debuting as an actor.

As a singer, Park Yoochun is one of the representative Korean idols, and now he puts his all into acting. After “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” he received numerous good scripts and acting invites but deliberated carefully before picking his next project. Despite being busy with group activities, he found time to study acting and undergo training. Therefore, the actor Park Yoochun in “Miss Ripley” has a more mature and seasoned feel.

As a rookie actor challenging drama for the first time in “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” Park Yoochun had already received reviews beyond expectations. In short, he “has great potential.” He brought life into the role of Lee Seon Joon, who was born into a rich family, a rigid man who possesses knowledge, manners and is talented in all fields, yet is confused when facing love for the first time. With a blend of gentle expressions and controlled acting, Park Yoochun successfully interpreted the process of growth and maturity in the critical young man. The audiences and even professionals gave him good reviews. He managed to get not one but two top acting awards for newcomers with his debut work.

Furthermore, in the recent “Miss Ripley,” Park Yoochun plays a charming but firm young man, which is similar to his previous role, but is interpreted perfectly as a distinctly different character. No longer strict, a friendly Park Yoochun displays a gentlemanliness and warmth towards everyone he meets. However, a cloud of mysterious sadness plagues him. His actions show his concern towards his wealthy background as well as the memories of his birth mother.



In a sense, when “Miss Ripley’s” Song Yoo Hyun (Park Yoochun) is compared to Lee Seon Joon in “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” his character seems more complex. Especially in the later part of the drama when Song Yoo Hyun finds out the true identity of Jang Miri whom he loves, the change in his emotions should be one of raw misery. At the crossroads where his fate hangs in a balance, how Song Yoo Hyun’s complex yet subtle emotional changes will be executed is something that people are looking forward to.

Entering into the world of acting through “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” whether Park Yoochun will be able to once again successfully perform with “Miss Ripley” is something to look out for.

Standing Ovation For JYJ's Junsu



JYJ’s Junsu successfully completed encore performances of the new legendary musical “Mozart!”

On 3 July, Junsu, who completed his last encore performance. In this final 3 hours, he danced across the stage, expressing happiness, sadness and anger, a wealth of emotions with his unique singing style, and basked in the standing ovation that the audience gave him for his outstanding performance.

After the final performance, Junsu said “Although this is not the first time (doing this performance,) but I’m happy to have been able to experience Mozart’s life. Mozart faced the pressures of the world’s anticipation, but beneath the glamorous life hides a hidden loneliness. Using the songs and performance, I feel like I was Mozart’s friend when he was still alive 300 years ago. To me, this stage bears a special meaning.” Also, “My heart feels heavy, having to part with “Mozart!” again. I feel like I give 120% in my performances for “Mozart!” and I’m really thankful for the audiences and the passionate support they have given me,” he expressed with deep emotion.

Junsu, who is one of the most anticipated new generation musical actors after his stellar performances in “Mozart!” and “Tears of Heaven,” revealed his improved skills in this encore performance. With his continous sell-out performances, he is now firmly placed as “Xiahzart” in the musical world.

Tohoshinki: "I'm happy!" about half a year after the comeback. Their 1st time on AnAn cover!



[Cinema Today Movie News]
東方神起 appears on the cover of “an・an” for the first time!

TVXQ will be on the cover of the women’s magazine “an・an” to be released on July 6 for the first time. TVXQ came back with 2 members, Yunho and Changmin, last January. They received an interview for the special article “Cannot help but love. All Korean Stars featured!!”. They openly answered to questions about half a year after the comeback, a picture in 10 years, and how they act when they are with the person they love etc.

About half a year after the comeback, both of them revealed that they’ve spent a fulfilling time, saying “I’m happy!” (Yunho) and “We are busy! but still don’t want to have a rest” (Changmin). While talking about their future activities, they started to picture each other in 10 years.

Yunho anticipated Changmin will have married, and said “He will be a big star outside the house but a strict teacher-like dad at home”. Changmin said “I can’t anticipate whether he will have married or not because he is quite unpredictable. But I’m sure he will be running flat out, even harder than now.”

In addition, they were asked how they act when they are with the person they love. Yunho said “I think I keep my poker face. It’s hard for me to show my true feelings to my love” Surprisingly, he is naïve. Changmin said “I feel…….I’ve become able to tell my true feelings” revealing he has grown out of being naïve (?).

Changmin, who lived a relaxed life before the comeback, said quietly “I’m really glad to have a lot of works”.

He revealed his honest feeling “Now I can tell my true feeling honestly, so I might look nasty (laugh).”

When they pictured each other in 10 years, Yunho said “Probably Changmin will have married”. The interview shows their close relationship. It is a must-read for fans.

Tohoshinki - ANAN Cover Story Photoshoot Offshoot



Before the actual photo shoot begins, while awaiting for the two of them to change, there seems to be a commotion outside. Looking out from the office’s window, there was a cosplay mania photoshoot being held by the roadside. Girls were wearing in unique clothings and short skirts, posing in different poses…… the staffs were delightfully ‘sticking’ by the window watching. At this moment, the two changed and came out saying, “Please take care of us~”, in preparation for the shooting. Someone from outside said, “There are people who are cosplay-photoshooting!”

Ah? Cosplay? Yunho and Changmin, who widened their eyes and slowly looked outside of the window, said softly with slight happiness, “…Oh, oh~”

Ah, ah, the Asia stars and fresh image like you two also…. right upon thinking like this, their actions after that were totally different from others. Speedily returned to work expressions, they have already quickly and naturally stood in front of the camera. (At this moment, the staffs are still in the status of ‘sticking’ by the window.) No doubt being the professional idol, they totally did not drift along with the crowd even in such a messy atmosphere. Right after this, (they) displayed the handsome images that made others forgot about the cosplay photoshoot.

MBC Being Kept Alive by "Singers" - Yoochun Being One of Them

From Park Yoochun to Jung Jaehyung. MBC Being Fed By Singers.



The powers of the singers are strong on the MC dramas and variety programs. All throughout the week on important programs singers are leading, and there is even talk that “MBC is fed by the singers.”

In Miss Ripley which is being aired and is a Monday-Tuesday drama, group JYJ’s Park Yoochun is appearing as lead. This is his second time acting following last year’s Sungkyunkwan Scandal but he is pulling off nuanced emotional scenes and is receiving praise. The evaluation is that he is contributing largely to the increase in ratings by securing JYJ’s existing fans as regular viewers.

JYJ's Overseas Fans "Officially" Invade "Jeju N7W"



(T/N: “N7W” is the abbreviation used for “New 7 Wonders Of Nature”)

JYJ has officially started participation in promotional activities for the voting.

To increase the weak vote numbers coming from foreigners, it is hopeful that they will be able to play the role of “relief pitcher.”

According to the Pan-Regional Promotional Committee, after JYJ had officially joined in the promotional activities, voting numbers from youths and hallyu regions have spread, increasing the intensity of the voting.

On 3 May, Jeju Island appointed JYJ as the ambassadors for “Jeju N7W”



Also, the production of the “Jeju N7W” promotional video became a hot topic.

Via the promotional video, JYJ said, “Jeju is a triple-crown winner in UNESCO’s nature and science sector, and represents Korea, China, Japan, and South-East Asia in challenging to become one of the World’s New 7 Wonders of Nature.” “Help Globalize the Korea Brand, and call 001-1588-7715 for telephone voting, and make Jeju known to the world,” encouraging the masses to vote.

Following that, they emphasized, “Jeju, as a representative of Korea, China & Japan, must become one of the World’s New 7 Wonders of Nature,” “We will work hard to encourage participants from the Hallyu regions.”

After the promotional video was put online, referrals from “Blessing Yoochun” and other JYJ fan clubs, fan blogs, twitter and other social media platforms, as well as streaming sites created tens of thousands of hits, heating up the online atmosphere.

JYJ will appear at the “KBS Special – Well-Wishes On Becoming Part Of The 7 Wonders” 5 Live Broadcast Locations, and show their enthusiastic support for Jeju’s nomination in the World’s New 7 Wonders of Nature.

MTVK Poll: TVXQ's "Why(Keep Your Head Down)" Voted SM's Hottest Singles of 2010-2011



Oh. My. Goodness.

This was by far the closest race ever in the history of MTV K’s Top Ten Polls, with TVXQ‘s “Why (Keep Your Head Down)” and Super Junior‘s “No Other” neck and neck up down to the very last moment!

But in the end, TVXQ (ahem, or should we say, Cassies) came through and finished in first place with 26.57% of the total votes!

It’s not much of a surprise, considering the insane amount of success “Why (Keep Your Head Down)” brought Yunho and Changmin. The single immediately topped the K-music charts, garnered numerous awards, and plenty of praise for their intense choreography and outstanding live performances.

Not to mention it was TVXQ’s first comeback after their much-too-long hiatus from the stage.

Super Junior’s lovely single, “No Other,” came in an extremely close second, almost making it a tie, with 26.43% of the votes — a mere 0.14% less than the winner!!

Thank you to everyone who voted, we hope you had fun voting!! Stay tuned for MTV K’s upcoming Top Ten Hottest Debuts of 2011 featuring your favorite rookie idol groups!

Note: There were some issues with the automated poll closing time, so some voting ran past the actual closing time. Therefore, even though Super Junior’s “No Other” was in first place at the time the poll was manually closed, the MTV K poll results reflect the actual poll percentages at 11:59PM EST — staying true to when the poll was originally announced to end. We assure you that this will not be an issue for future MTV K polls. Thank you for your understanding!

Poll Results:
1. TVXQ — “Why (Keep Your Head Down)”
2. Super Junior — “No Other”
3. TVXQ — “Before You Go”
4. Super Junior — “Bonamana”
5. SHINee — “Lucifer”
6. F(x) — “Pinocchio (Danger)”
7. SHINee — “Hello”
8. BoA — “Hurricane Venus”
9. Girls’ Generation — “Oh!”
10. Girls’ Generation — “Hoot”

Tohoshinki led to an increased number of applications for Millennium/Club On Card



[Commercial tie-up with “TVXQ” led to an increased number of applications for Millennium/Club On card!]

A new commercial film of Millennium/Club On card was aired from May 13 to May 31. This commercial film was intended to introduce the renewed card face through the tie-up with TVXQ, who has enormous popularity in Japan and South Korea.

Today we bring you an interview with Mr ●● (Sales Promotion Dept. Manager of Seven CS Card Service) and a story of the Card Application Counter in Seibu Ikebukuro store, which is enjoying an increased number of applications for the new card.

[Background of commercial tie-up with TVXQ]

They decided to use a refurbished version of “Shopping Bear”, specifically a “Silver Bear”, in the commercial film for the new card. “Shopping Bear” is a symbolic icon of Sogo/Seibu sales promotion and silver is the key color of the new card.

Seven & i group started to consider using a Korean star for their 2011 sales promotion, and Commercial tie-up with “TVXQ” was decided rapidly since they are popular among target customers.

[The concept was “Birth of the new card”]

The timing when “TVXQ” restarted their Japanese activities with 2 members was perfect and the tie-up became a hot topic because it was the first commercial of the “new” TVXQ.

On the other hand, there were also some concerns. The public may pay attention only to TVXQ’s talent and forget that it is a commercial film of a new card, or the image of the commercial film does not match the image of “TVXQ”.

After a lot of discussions, we asked them to dance with the “silver bear” in a silver costume. They work on the shoot so positively and cooperatively. As a result, the commercial film showed a wonderful integration of the image of “birth of the new card” and the image of TVXQ.

[Influence of a tie-up with a popular artist]

What impressed me most was overwhelming popularity of “TVXQ”. The tie-up became a hot topic on the internet even before the commercial film was aired, and our store and the information center received numerous inquiries.

Also there was an accident of part of the commercial film being leaked before the first air.

The influence of TVXQ was reflected the most in the number of “new applications for the card”. All store clerks were united in getting new customers, and then the number of new applications increased 300% to 400% from the previous year during the commercial period.

[Cooperation with affiliated companies]

The success of this project was based on the full cooperation of Sogo/Seibu such as development of “silver bear”, tie-up with “TVXQ” and use of TVXQ image in and outside of the stores.

We really appreciate the cooperation of Sogo/Seibu for the sales promotion.

[New Record! Seibu Ikebukuro store got more than 500 new card members]

I didn’t expect people who hadn’t applied for the card would apply for it just because of a commercial film. Before the air of the commercial film, we set a high goal of getting 300 new card members per day, but I thought it was impossible.

However, once the commercial film was aired, it was possible. We got 363 new card members on the first day (May 13) and the number of applications hit the new record of 527 on Saturday (May 14). I was really impressed.

I think that was a synergic effect of our daily efforts such as polite communication with each customer and the commercial film.

The commercial film not only contributed to acquisition of new customers but also sent existing Seibu/Sogo card members to the store.

From now on, we will always aim for the No.1 through new ideas and everyday efforts to make the card loved by a lot of customers.

Miss Ripley's Episodes Will Not Be Extended

Miss Ripley’s representative expressed on the 6th: “Originally, the drama was supposed to have 4 extra episodes added due to overwhelming popularity, but because the female main lead Lee Dae Hae has schedules in China and the male main lead Park Yoochun’s physical health is not at it’s best since his JYJ World Tour activities coincided with the filming of the drama, Miss Ripley will only go up to 16 episodes.”

The production team also expressed, “Our Yoochunnie has worked hard. Rest well!”

The Cover Story for the Photo Shooting



Outside the studio, there was girls' cosplay photo shooting! Tohoshinki was...!


The front cover for this issue was the 2 members of Tohoshinki! It was their first appearance in anan. Yunho-san was stylishly wearing a gray shirt, and Changmin-san, a grey hoodie. They showed us there their relaxed and lovely expressions.

But just before this shooting scene, there was a funny episode. During the time when the two were changing their clothes, the outside became somewhat noisy. Looking down from the studio window...a photo shooting of a girls' cosplay mania was taking place! Looking at the girls taking poses in their colorful & freakish design clothes with miniskirts, the staffs were delighted, and they were clinging to the window. At that timing, the two finished changing their clothes and came into the studio saying "Let’s get going!" The staffs said "There’s a cosplay photo shooting over there!" to the 2 members who were to stand in front of the camera.

"Really? Cosplay?" Yunho-san and Changmin-san stole a curious look out of the window, and happily said "WOW!" Oh... you Asian stars... such nice guys.. but you also are...I thought like that for an instance. But they were not the same as others. Amazingly, they recovered their professional expressions, and quickly stood in front of the camera. (At this point, the staffs were still looking out of the window.) They are really professionals, they are not carried away but such chaos! After that, their handsome features that blew away the afterimages of cosplay were beyond words.....Please check our issue for them. You would be completely fascinated.

The representative group of Korea JYJ and their global appointments as honorary ambassadors are newly being paid attention to by the netizens.

JYJ is contributing to society by being appointed as honorary ambassadors for a variety of events and organizations, such as FLL Korea 2011, International Abroad Korean Trade Association, Jeju-World 7 Wonders, KEPCO, G20 Friends, and such. As if proving JYJ’s status, these appointments are of scale that are above the usual.

Then what is the reason behind JYJ being appointed frequently as honorary ambassadors to these prominent major events?

First is the global image of JYJ itself. JYJ has established the image as a global star with the success of their first world wide album, The Beginning. If JYJ with such success comes to be honorary ambassadors, then the organization or event can benefit from the effect of enhancing naturally their brand powers.

Also underlying is the calculation that there can be built a relationship of a strategic partner with the Korean Wave group that represents Korea to unfold the global strategy (of the entity). That is because among the entertainers of Korea there are not many that have both the high name recognition and power like JYJ.

Another reason is the dynamic and solid team work of JYJ. In fact, last January at the time of JYJ’s appointment as honorary ambassadors for FLL Korea, the host explained the background behind the appointment: “We decided that the passion and the team work that JYJ has is akin to the spirit of the competition.” It is that JYJ’s young and future-looking image highlights the promotional impact.

Also, the good deeds by JYJ who have actively engaged in societal works such as donation and volunteering regularly cannot be ignored. As well known, members of JYJ are shining a bright light of positivity on our society’s dark and isolated places with their fans—through donating operation costs for child cancer patients, sponsoring operation costs for child heart disease patients, building houses of love, and such.

It seems that the love calls for JYJ to become honorary ambassadors will not end for a while because there are still many organizations, institutions and events that wish that JYJ who is leading the global Korean Wave will become their honorary ambassadors. It is of attention as to who will become the lucky entity after KEPCO.

Jaejoong and Junsu To Become Neighbors



JYJ’s Kim Jaejoog and Kim Junsu have become neighbors of a luxury residential complex.

Kim Junsu moved in last month into the “B” Residential Complex of Seoul’s Samsungdong. Kim Jaejoong also is planned to move in next month into a penthouse of the same residential complex. A construction of the interior is underway in anticipation of Jaejoong’s move-in. In this residential complex, already Lee Hyori, Lee Seungki, Kim Yongman and such stars are living and so it has come to become a “Star Town.”

The penthouse into which Kim Jaejoong will move in is 297.5 square meters and will come with a terrace. It is a high-end luxury residence that has a sales price reaching 3 billion KRW (T/N: approximately 3 million USD). An affiliate relayed: “With the proceeds from working as a part of JYJ, he has prepared (T/N: come to live in) the house. Kim Junsu moved into the house first and it seems that from that Jaejoong has come to be interested. Kim Junsu and Jaejoong already spend almost every day together but it seems that after Jaejoong moves in they will be even more together. This is the first time that Jaejoong has come to have a house in his own name and so he is putting special attention to its interior also.”

The other member Park Yoochun is living in a luxury villa in Seoul’s Hannamdong.

Pyeongchang bid - TVXQ's Yunho is excited!



Hello everyone, I’m TVXQ’s Uknow Yunho.

Every citizen’s dream of having Pyeongchang as the host city for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games has come true. As a citizen of South Korea, I feel very excited. Because of the sweat and passion of those who worked hard in order for Pyeongchang to become the host city, as well as the support and aid from the citizens, this dream can be achieved.

Through the hosting of this Olympic Winter Games, I hope that there will be an increase in the world position of South Korea. Also, I hope that all athletes who took part in winter games that have not received much attention previously can receive more attention and support. Our athletes must put in their best and show the strength of South Korea in the Olympic Winter Games in 2018.

Tohoshinki's AnAn Interview



Happy distance that exists only between the two boys
After they came back with “Why (Keep your head down)”, they have had so busy schedule that even fans worry about their health.

In between the busy schedule, they appeared in the studio with a somehow soft and relaxed look, illuminated by the sunlight of early summer.

Tell us your honest feeling about half a year after the comeback.
Yunho (hereinafter YH): I’m happy!

Changmin (hereinafter CM): …We are busy, but I don’t want to take a rest. To be honest, I had a relaxed time before the comeback and now I’m really glad to have a lot of works.

YH: I’m so happy to be running flat out again after a long interval and feel happier when I see the love of fans who have been waiting for us.

CM: But Yunho is excessively tired, and sometimes he twitches and jerks while sleeping as if he is dancing popping.

YH: Hahaha. Changmin often speaks Japanese while sleeping. Recently he has become “human”. I mean he used to hold back his feelings saying “I’m fine”, but has changed.

CM: Yes, I’ve become honest to my feelings and now can express my true feelings, so I might look a bit nasty (laugh). I’ve learnt to let myself rely on others and then I feel relieved now.

YH: I think I’ve become a little bit tidier because Changmin is well-organized and sometimes tidier than girls (laugh). But I cannot be a well-organized person.

CM: Yunho is supposed to become tidier than now (laugh).

You will release a new song “Superstar” on July 20.
YH: “Why? (Keep Your Head Down” was a powerful song. The new song is stylish and easy to get into.

CM: Yes, it is a cool dance music rather than vigorous.

After the CD release, you will participate in a-nation after a 2-year absence.

YH: a-nation is the stage where fans got to know TVXQ, so I’m glad to make a special memory together with them again. To be honest, I wanted to make Kakigori (shaved ice flavored with colorful syrups) at a stall…….but unfortunately we don’t have time. But some day I will make a Yunho original Kakigori combining Japanese Kakigori and Korean Patbingsu!


TVXQ’s 10th year anniversary is in two and half a year!
CM: Ah, I can’t believe so much time has passed. Time flies.

YH: I don’t feel time has passed quickly. But it would be nice to have our 10th year anniversary. I think we’ve acquired new colors and have more options than ever without knowing.

CM: And we hope to overcome our shortcomings one by one so that we can show fans better TVXQ at our 10th year anniversary.

YH: I hope to have a hall tour. It’s just my personal hope though… I’d like to have lives at a lot of not-so-large venues, because that is where TVXQ started. TVXQ should make a new start at the same place.

Lastly, picture each other in 10 years.

YH: Probably Changmin will have married. He will be a big star outside the house, but a strict teacher-like dad at home.

CM: Yeah, I think I will be a strict dad. The curfew is ten o’clock, even for a boy (laugh). To be honest, I can’t anticipate whether Yunho will have married or not. He is quite unpredictable. But I’m sure He will be running flat out, even harder than now.


YUNHO
He is armed with dynamic dance performance and a beautiful body proportion of 9 heads high, which always makes people’s heart skip a beat, but still……he is so hardworking and so honest to the point of being clumsy. He is an eternal leader.

Q: What do you do when you feel like you are losing heart?
I listen to K-pop songs from the 90’s a lot to get back to my starting point when I was hoping “to be an artist like them” with my purest heart. The songs re-ignite my passion. Also I visit my old schools.

Q: What is you ideal holiday?
I want to laugh the whole day through in an air-conditioned room, eating a watermelon and watching comedy movies.

Q: Which book or manga impressed you recently?
“One Piece” Everyone has ups and downs. Every cloud has a silver lining. It makes me cry. Oh, I don’t cry in front of other people because I promised with my grandfather. But I cry sometimes when I’m alone.

Q: Do you have any habits or things you say all the time?
I’m not aware of it myself, but people say I always say “I should work harder”. They say “You are working hard enough”. But soon after that I say “I should work harder” (laugh). I get injured, I become physical wrecks, but I can’t let myself cut corners.

Q: How do you act when you are with the person you love?
I think I keep my poker face. It’s hard for me to show my true feelings to my love.

Changmin
He is the mightiest boy who has refined powerful voice and is getting manlier and manlier. But he shows shy smile once in a while, and it makes people’s heart ache.

Q: What do you do when you feel like you are losing heart?
I don’t listen to any music. I climb mountains, go to the sea, or drive to a broad area to relax myself. Recently I pray often.

Q: what are you addicted to recently?
Health products such as supplements or proteins. Do you know why? I’ll be honest with you. I want to live long. No kidding.

Q: What do you want girls to cook for you?
I heard fewer people can cook well recently and quite a lot of people cannot cook rice…..So if they cook something eatable, I would be happy.

Q: When do you write songs?
I write in my diary sometimes, not every day though. I read it to write a lyric poem. I have a desire to write songs but I think my Japanese is not yet good enough to write Japanese lyrics.

Q: How do you act when you are with the person you love?
I feel……… I can tell my true feelings now. I used to be too shy to talk to my crush. One day she started going out with another guy before I talked to her. So I think I should have the courage to tell my crush I love her.

Even when the staff members were admiring his beautiful profile, he went his own way.
It is one of his attractions.



I want to leave them sleep. No, I want to keep watching them sleep.



They chose the same steak lunch although they had lunch time at different timings.

JYJ's Jaejoong's Drama 'Protect The Boss' Begins Filming!



Filming for JYJ‘s Jaejoong‘s upcoming drama, Protect The Boss (formally The Last Secretary), is officially underway.

So far, SBS has revealed photos of the cast’s first script reading, the drama teaser shoot, and stills from the first episode.

Netizens were particularly intrigued by still shots of Choi Kang Hee at various interviews. According to drama reps, in the first episode Choi Kang Hee’s character, Noh Eun Seol, interviews at a whopping ten places before she is hired by Cha Muwon, played by Jaejoong.

The photos show a serious Jaejoong sitting on the interview panel and Choi Kang Hee being a 4-D interviewee. (Who shows off their martial arts skills at an interview for a huge firm?!) After being asked “What are you good at?” she sings and dances to “Twinkle Twinkle” by Girls’ Day.

I suppose it wouldn’t be a romantic comedy without some really awkward first impressions, now would it?

Protect The Boss is about Noh Eun Seol, who gets a job as a secretary and gets caught in a love triangle between her boss, the immature heir to the company, Cha Jiheon (played by heartthrob actor Ji Sung) and his oh-so-perfect cousin/rival Cha Muwon.

Protect The Boss will begin airing on August 3, after the conclusion of City Hunter.

Photo Credit: JYJ3 http://jyj3.net/2011/07/07/pics-110707-capture-of-yuchun-miss-ripley-interview/

Park Yoochun expresses, “I don't think I will be able to accept it if my lover has a lying attitude.”

Park Yoochun plays the plays the role of a second generation conglomerate heir, Song Yoo Hyeon. in MBC’s drama series “Miss Ripley”. He mentioned that if the same scenario in the drama happens in reality, he would not be able to accept such a lover.

On the 7th, the official website of “Miss Ripley”launched the interview video with Park Yoochun. In the interview, he revealed more on the character he was playing as, as well as his thoughts towards acting and the problems he faced during acting.

He said, “When acting as Song Yoo Hyeon, I didn't place much focus on his identity as a CEO, but I acted this character out with thoughts on his past and future.”

Park Yoochun also sang a track in the drama’s OST, named “A space left for you”. He mentioned, “I heard it’s on the music boards now, but I haven’t confirmed this personally. When I received this song, I was having the JYJ World Tour Concert in America. When I returned to Korea, I made use of time I had outside filming to do a second edit to the song recording, but there are still some parts which I wasn’t really satisfied with.”

He emphasized, giving a shy look,“I felt really shy when I saw myself on TV, and it felt weird when the background music that was playing was the song I sang.”

Park Yoochun’s recent haircut brought out his charismatic features, with that he expressed, “I was supposed to have a haircut during the 2nd or 3rd episode, but because of the world tour, I wasn’t able to do so until now. In the later part of the drama, I’ll be having scenes that will reveal a lot of my emotions, so I heeded the director’s, script writer’s advice and cut it. ”

In the recent episode of “Miss Ripley”, Song Yoo-Hyeon finally knows Jang Mi Ri had been scheming to know him for a ulterior motive, increasing the tension of the drama. Park Yoochun said, “Currently, Yoo Hyeon will be much affected by that, but even then, he will not just stop loving her, but will first try to clarify all his doubts.”

He also mentioned, “Although in his mind, he would really want to understand and accept her past, but it’s really not easy for him to forget them. If he accepts her past, then he would have to consider about bearing the pain every day. If it were me, I wouldn’t accept it. I think it’s rather difficult.”

The Abilities of Xiah Junsu, The Game Maniac, As Seen by Seo Kyunjong

What is the favorite game of Kim Junsu (JYJ), a well-known Soccer Fanatic and Game Mania?



Through ‘Today Korea Interview’, Seo Kyungjong, who recently retired from his career as a pro-gamer to become a game commentator, revealed the Korean Wave star Kim Junsu’s favorite games and his skills at them.

Seo Kyungjong and Kim Junsu are close friends due to Starcraft. They are such friends that Kim Junsu himself visited the set of Seo Kyungjong’s final game at the LOOX Hero Center on the 20th with 10 other players from the entertainers soccer team FC MEN to cheer for him.

Seo Kyungjong said: “Junsu usually likes to play Starcraft and Sudden Attack. As for Starcraft, his skills have improved dramatically lately He has now become equipped with such skills that even if he were to do a team play with a pro gamer he would stand his ground to a certain extent.”

He continued: “As for Sudden Attack, it is to the degree that I would learn from Junsu. He is so good to the degree that he would jokingly chastise me, saying ‘how can a pro-gamer be so bad.’”

Then what is the strength of Kim Junsu as a game player? Seo decisively picked “passion.” Seo Kyungjong said: “Junsu’s passion is amazing even from my eyes. At certain times it is above that of a pro-gamer. I think that perhaps because he has that passion as basis he has been able to stand as the top in that competitive entertainment industry and is recognized also in the field of musicals to which he has ventured forth. He is a good model for myself, who is starting anew as a game commentator.”

Seo Kyungjong laughed, saying: “I had a couple games with Junsu last summer on a random opportunity. After that we became quite close. We saw movies together, ate cup noodle on Han River, and shared stories of depth, and we became close. I think that our personalities match.”

Seo Kyungjong said: “In particular I thought that Junsu would be cocky since he is a big star. But actually it is comfortable because he treats others without pretense and with familiarity. Even now when I meet Junsu he treats me with such closeness that I feel- is this really the Xiah Junsu who is so charismatic on stage.”

Continuing, he revealed: “I am thankful and I feel encouraged because he has given me advice and shared stories about broadcasts when I retired as a pro-gamer and came to venture out as a commentator. A few days ago even he encouraged me saying that I should prepare hard so that I can stand in front of my fans as a great commentator and was a great source of strength.”

Seo Kyungjong said that “I am happy because there are many people around me who like Junsu are helping me.” He is heightening his value by establishing slowly himself as a game commentator and TV personality who gives people comfort.

Tohoshinki's Rolling Stone Interview

"SUPERSTAR STORMS ASIA: MEN WHO RULE THE ASIA"

As you may be well aware, Tohoshinki has come back to us with Yunho and Changmin. They have shown a complete comeback with their single, ‘WHY (KYHD).’ But that power is still evident in their new single ‘Superstar.’ NO, still evident doesn’t fit it. Their presence has never been this strong. One and Only. Yes, like a Superstar that Rules the Entire Asia.



Achieving the highest status in Korea as an artist didn’t satisfy them enough, Tohoshinki has learned Japanese from scratch to come to the music scene of J-POP. Again, reached to the very top. Their presence and status are that of complete difference compared to all other Korean artists.

We wanted to ask these tough minds about their thoughts as entertainers. But usually, these interviews with artists have many restrictions in terms of hearing their actual thoughts. The interview room filled with staffs, an ordinal scene of any interviews. And in reality, right now, as the two walked into the shooting scene, there are many staffs surrounding them. I personally was preparing for a tense shooting scene. My expectations turned out to be wrong. In a good way.

In between the shootings, Yunho played with a dog that one of the Rolling Stone staffs brought to onsite. Changmin was talking comfortably with the staffs.

Yunho’s shooting finished first. He came to see me in the interview room, where I was waiting for the two to finish shooting. Started a conversation with a heartwarming smile on his face, “I love Rock. I love listening to hard rock, like Linkin Park.” So, with this frank conversation, an interview of a superstar, leading Asia, began.

YH: “Regardless of the Circumstances, I Put All I Have. That’s How the Emotions are Created”

CM: “I Tell Myself: ‘Don’t You Dare Get Scared.”


-You like dogs?

YH: I have a Siberian husky at home in Korea. But I don’t get to see him so often. I’ve been a little busy with the schedule. I miss him.

-Yes, today, after the shoot, you are going back to Korea, and returning here in 2 days? That’s crazy!

YH: To be honest… yes, a bit busy (laugh). But that is a fortunate (happy) thing. When schedule is this tight, the body might get tired. But the mind is happy.

-What is the secret in keeping a healthy state of mind, even under such a crazy schedule?

YH: It’s now my hobby to look for a leeway in between my tight schedules (laugh). I feel and store good energy coming to interviews and shootings like today. It fills me with happiness. More than that, I have become abled to feel soothed by simple things, like a day with good weather. But it didn’t come to me naturally. It is because I was given the opportunity to experience many things.

(Changmin finished his shooting and joins. Interview with both of them starts here.)

-So, how was the shooting?

CM: I think I was able to show a more natural side.

YH: I really appreciate how it showed a different side of us, like ‘Yes, Tohoshinki has this side in us too!’ And, I am very grateful for being able to stand within a picture, right under the Logo of the Rolling Stone.

-Thank you. Oh, I was very impressed with both of your Japanese. To be honest with you, I wasn’t expecting I could do this interview in Japanese.

YH: But, we really couldn’t speak at all in the beginning…. Especially the pronunciation. I still remember the time. Year 2004. When we first came to Japan, everywhere I went, I was always worrying. I practiced Japanese so hard, and when I went to the convenient store for the first time. I was able to say, ‘I would like to buy this!’ I was really happy! Like, ‘Yes!!! I did it!!’ I secretly pumped my fist (laugh).

-Now, when you sing in Japanese, do you understand fully the meanings of the lyrics?

YH: Yes, of course we understand the meanings. But, the funny thing is that as much I understand the meaning of words, I face new challenges. For example, ‘Aishiteru’ and ‘Saranghe yo,’ they do not mean the same thing. There is difference in the nuances. It is very difficult to understand that, differences of nuances in words coming from differences in cultures. Indeed, we were born and raised in Korea, but we also have lived in Japan for a period of time, which we have struggled and captured the nuances in words. Even if it is in Japanese, we put our heart in the lyrics as our own words.

-You guys are bilinguals, in language. But Tohoshinki is also ‘Bi-Music’ of K-POP and J-POP. What is the difference in the two?

CM: That’s a hard one (laugh). J-POP is very broad, both in genre and in terms of people who listen. J-POP always has different kinds of music, but music scene in Korea tends to focus on a particular music. That could be one of the differences.

-I see. You know, it is such an extraordinary achievement to reach to the very top in these two different music scenes. And I hear about your activities in western countries. Honestly, do you believe that the music of Asia, be accepted in the west?

YH: Yes. I mean, I truly think that it would all get down to my thought that there are no differences in the meaning that music hold. If there are, then that’s a ‘trends’ of music. Other than that, music is mutual. When I was preparing for the Michael Jackson’s memorial concert, I had an opportunity to share music from Asia with the staffs from the US. Music that was well received in Asia, that music was also well received. Music that was not, the reaction was not well. As the music industries are different, the hit chart shows different songs. But good music is universal. It was a wonderful experience that made me realize that.

-I agree with you on that music has no boundaries in country. At the same time, the fact that you are accepted this much, regardless of country: That is because you such a high quality as an artist, as an expressionist.

CM: Whether it’s singing or dancing, when performing, I believe that the most important thing is ‘Confidence.’ I would be lying if I said I don’t get nervous. But, I tell myself. ‘Don’t you dare get scared!’

YH: I also get nervous before going on stage. But I also enjoy it. In the past, there were times when I wasn’t feeling well, I thought about slacking off a little bit…. But the audience will know when you are not putting your 100%. So, regardless of the circumstances, I put all I have. That is how emotions are created. That would lead to better and higher performances.

-Now, what do you want to express?

YH: Rather than thinking, ‘I want to do …,’ I want to CONTROL my expression. Just singing and dancing a happy upbeat song happily won’t do. It is also important to control emotions. But, that is very difficult.

-Who is your goal or inspiration as an entertainer, expressionist?

YH: Michael Jackson

CM: Recently, I was listening to ‘Someone Like You,’ and became a fan of Adele. She wrote the lyrics to this song herself. Heart aching, touching lyrics. But her vocal, she controls the emotions of the lyrics with her vocal. It is so touching because you can still feel the exact emotion.

-I see that your vision is toward the world. Please do share your goals for the future.

YH: Tohoshinki will continue to challenge in broad genres. And, we want to put our heart into music that, even when time passes, still holds a place in people’s hearts. For that, we are dedicating ourselves right now, and will continue to put all of our efforts in the future.

JYJ's Junsu Is Caught On Camera Shopping in L'inoui



On June 7th, 2011, JYJ member Junsu appeared at our store. We were so surprised to see him because he came without calling us ahead of time, like most celebrities do.!

Looking around at this and that, it seemed as though he couldn’t make his decision quickly because he liked all the bags on display.^^ In the end, he chose three, the Bono beige canvas, the Bono pumo grey canvas and Darin white canvas bags from our new collection.

He even kindly agreed to have his picture taken and we’d like to thank him so much. We hope to see many activities from JYJ in the future!

Jaejoong - "Japan Lifestyle" French Magazine



After having spent a long time as a superstar, Jaejoong has become a sex-symbol almost without noticing it.
Which is strange, since from the start, we knew why.

How do you know that a star leave its mark in everyone’s mind? It’s when this star isn’t as much mediatized but keeps being talked about. A mysterious look, a haircut that hides half of his mischievous face, and most of all an (almost) innocent smile: it’s logical that Kim Jaejoong is hard to forget.


The other side of fame’s coin

At a young age, Jaejoong knew what he wanted. Doing what was needed to reach his goal, he leaves his family to start a career in the show-business. But things don’t go as planned. Hired by his favorite group’s agency, he has to take part-time jobs to pay for dansing and singing classes. Eventhough, in december 2003, 2 years and a half after joining SM Entertainment, he becomes a member of TVXQ! Together, the five handsome boys of the group will renew the idea of “boys band” in Korea.

Fame being often accompanied by setbacks, once again he isn’t spared, like when his hurtful past is made known publicly by tabloids. When TVXQ’s popularity is at its top, Jaejoong as well as Yoochun and Junsu, two other members of the group, fill a lawsuit against their agency ***. When in october 2009 the korean Court makes a statement in favor of the three men, the group’s fate is written. Six months later, the break-up is official and the “TVXQ soul” written on his back will prevent him from forgetting this experience.

Renewal

Being the victims of a boycott from media in Korea, the three men, renamed JYJ, travels the world with a big-scale tour that includes China, the United States or Canada.
The other news about Jaejoong are in front of cameras. Late 2009, Postman to Heaven is released. It is his first real part by Hyo-Joo Han’s side. More unusually, a few months later, the young man makes his debuts on japanese TV in Sunao ni Narenakute. His part as a doctor will make him win an award as the best second-lead from the daily newspaper Nikkan Sports. Late 2011, the artist should play the main-lead in Hanbando (T/N the article was probably written before the announce about Protect the Boss), a K-drama about this mysterious national intelligence’s boss in a unified Korea.

Park Yoochun-Lee Da Hae Bring In Fans And Beverages To Battle The Summer Heat "It's Hot, It's Hot~"

The leading roles of MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’ have been caught fighting a fierce battle with the heat.

These actors, who are filming for the drama despite the temperature inching over 30℃and the continuous monsoon rain showers, are fighting the heat in their own ways. The burning summer heat is one of the worst troubles for actors and thick, black umbrellas are a must for actors filming scenes outside in order to escape the blazing sun.



Lee Da Hae uses a thick, black umbrella to block out the sun while turning on a portable fan to cool herself down. It has been revealed that the cute and small portable electric fan is the item Lee Da Hae uses the most to survive the blazing temperatures. Whenever she’s waiting for her turn or taking a break, she has her fan turned on, chasing away the summer heat.

Kim Seung Woo is also another user of small, portable fans. To fit his title as a CEO of a hotel, Kim Seung Woo usually wears long-sleeved formal suits, meaning that he can’t help but feel scorched in the burning heat. Staff say that he has his fan turned on whenever he takes a break and cools his body down by drinking cool beverages.

Park Yoochun, who is more susceptible to summer heat than most, is having a hard time filming outside because he sweats a lot. The lighting crew sometimes fan him with their large reflecting plates while the staff members who move around with him fan his face continuously with their own fans. Whenever a scene is over, Park Yoochun fans his face with his own hands in an attempt to cool down.

The production company stated, “Though they face blazing temperatures over 30℃, the actors are working hard to film all their scenes as they fight off the summer heat,” and “They’re using various items such as portable fans and cool beverages to improve the completion of the drama. Please continue to watch over these actors who are doing their best.”

Yoochun To Show His Upper Body In A Shower Scene on Ripley



Group JYJ’s member Park Yoochun revealed a muscular body by exposing his upper body.

It is that Park Yoochun, through the exposure of his upper body, emits a strong male appeal on the 13th episode of the MBC TV Drama Miss Ripley that will air on the 11th.

Song Yoohyun who has shown an affectionate and warm side has come to know of the falsehoods of Zhang Miri and after this he is showing pains and worrying over his love for her. Park Yoochun who is wrapped up in conflicts comes to unfold a wild appeal through a shower scene that exposes his upper body.

This scene took place on the 8th in a hotel in Namsan, Seoul. This was the first time that he, during the filming of the drama, had taken off his suit to reveal a body without an ounce of unneeded fat. The collateral muscles that were shaped through exercise and the unique 90-degrees shoulders led the set to let out exclamations (of praise).

In particular, a few of the female staff who had filmed together in the shower room fell into admiring with the filming behind them and kept staring at Park Yoochun despite the “ok” sign by the director. At this, the (members of the) male staff said to the (members of the) female staff to “stop staring” to make the set burst into laughter.

About this the production side relayed: “This scene is one in which Song Yoohyun is pained to relieve himself of complicated feelings after he comes to know of Lee Dahae’s falsehoods. Song Yoohyun who has been affectionate and kind until now will change 180 degrees and for that Park Yoochun is putting the best of his efforts.”

Kim Jaejoong Is Seen Wearing a Yellow Raincoat In Myeongdong?

Recently, a post was made on an online community thread claiming that Kim Jaejoong was in Myeongdong, even stating that the one who made the post had pictures as proof. But the person in the photo wasn’t the real Kim Jaejoong, it was a prop-up panel of him.



Standing in front of a store of the cosmetic brand that JYJ endorses, the panel is seen wearing a yellow raincoat. According to the person who made the post, the panel of Kim Jaejoong was the only one that was getting hit by the rain because it wasn’t sheltered by a roof. Therefore, a person who worked at the store whipped out the raincoat and ended up giving many something to smile about.

Netizens who saw the photo said, “I was tricked by the title but this made me laugh”, “Though I was tricked, I’m okay with it. If I was there, I would have wiped the rain off the panel”, “The person who pulled out the raincoat is awesome. She understands the feelings of us fans”, and “This could result in yellow raincoats selling out. It’s awesome.”

Park Yoochun Becomes The Center Of Attention While Filming 'Miss Ripley' For Taking His Shirt Off



Park Yoochun showed off his masculinity by taking his shirt off.

In the 13th episode of MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’ that airs on the 11th, Park Yoochun plans to reveal his upper body through a shower scene.

Song Yoo Hyun, who has been showing a warm and affectionate side till now, finds out about Jang Miri’s lies and begins to hurt and worry about his love. Park Yoochun, who now stands at crossroads, will throw away his soft image for a wilder one in the shower scene.

Regardless of the added pressure of taking off one’s shirt in a drama, Park Yoochun lost himself in the scene. Able to bring out all his emotions, even in a small and confined shower stall, Park Yoochun received great praise from the staff who were watching him.



Some of the female staff members who were on location seemed to lose themselves in watching him so deeply that jesting complaints were made against them. They kept watching him even after the director said ‘OK’, resulting in some of the male staff telling them, “Stop watching him.” The whole happening ended with everyone there bursting into laughter according to a representative who was present.

The production company stated, “The scene depicts Park Yoochun’s efforts to escape from his jumbled thoughts after finding out about Lee Da Hae’s lies,” and “Park Yoochun is doing his best to completely change Song Yoo Hyun from a warm and friendly man to someone else. In the 13th and 14th episode, our viewers will be able to feel and see this change.“

JYJ's Kim Jaejoong receives bacterial infection treatment on his right arm



JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong was bitten by an insect during his recent visit to Vietnam and because he didn’t receive early treatment, it left a scar on his right arm.

Because of this incident, it was announced that Kim Jaejoong had to be treated for a bacterial infection.

Last June, Kim Jaejoong was invited to a charity event for a soccer match, ‘Asian Dream Cup‘, held in Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. During this event, it was found that he was bit by an insect on his right arm. Jaejoong initially disregarded the bite and didn’t receive any treatment. Because of this oversight, the bite eventually spread to an infection. Jaejoong’s agency admitted, “He received the bite while waiting for the Vietnam performance. He was sweating a lot during the incident and the scar eventually got deeper because he kept vigorously scratching it“.

Jaejoong sought for help at a hospital when he returned to Korea. However, the infection was so severe that it spread extensively all over his right arm. An official stated, “When you have an inflammation, you have to stay away from alcohol but there was a dinner social gathering after the concert. It worsened the condition because we weren’t aware of how serious the infection was at the time“.

As of now, JaeJoong finished his treatment but a scar from the bite still remains. An associate of Jaejoong said, “There is a big scar in two places. And a small remnant of the infection still remains. The treatment for the scar isn’t finished and he will receive further treatment“.

Currently, Kim Jaejoong is participating in the filming for SBS’s new miniseries, “Defend the Boss” (Screenplay by Kwon Ki Young, directed by Son Jung Hyun) as he is playing one of the leading roles.

Yoochun Fanmeeting (Fan Account)

After a short video, everyone shouted “Yoochun saranghaeyo!”which was the moment he came out smiling shyly. He then greeted us by saying, “Hi I’m Yoochun. Nice to meet you.”

Host: You’ve lost weight haven’t you?
YC: I lost 6 kgs. Due to the busy shooting schedule.
Host: You really don’t need an interpreter!
YC: Actually I haven’t spoken Japanese in awhile….
Host: It’s been awhile seeing everyone right?
YC: Yea it has been awhile…But recently we had a concert in Japan.
From the audience there were shouts of “I went!” and “Thank you” to which Yoochun smiled happily.

They then sat down and continued the talk. Yoochun seemed a little nervous speaking Japanese.

YC: Did you all reach yesterday? Thank you all for gathering since the morning.
Host: Could you tell us the reason for choosing another drama right after SKK?
YC: Reason…(deep sigh) What was it…After finishing SKK, I ended up wanting to be in a new drama. It was a challenge in itself to get into a modern drama. And also I felt that Yoohyun’s character was somewhat similar to mine so I felt like doing it.
Host: Which is more difficult, traditional period drama or modern drama?
YC: Personally, traditional period dramas are more difficult, due to various issues with words and lines. And also there were a lot of insects. (laugh)

(T/N: there were specific keywords that they were to talk about. 3 keyword)


1. Regarding the role of a conglomerate

YC: What’s the word in Japanese? Zaibatsu? (T/N: companies passed through families) This time I played the role of a second generation of zaibatsu. Personally I actually felt like I could be one~
Host: In terms of image, you have that zaibatsu image Yoochun! What part of this role appeals to you?
YC: Personal jet? I was jealous of that. And also of the conversations with the father!
Host: Okay moving on to the second keyword.
YC: Oh? How many are there?
Host: 3 keywords
YC: Ah I see… (little worried)


2. Yoohyun’s style

YC: What do you mean by Yoohyun’s style?
Host: It seems that your hairstyle has gotten shorter right? Different when compared to Yoochun’s style.
YC: Yes that’s true. Awhile back when I was in Japan I cut my hair short, which turned out to be a mistake. (laughter from audience) So because of that I was abit worried about cutting it short, but I wonder if it’s not too bad?
(Audience applauses)
Host: Do you like it long or short?
YC: Mmmm I like it either way.
Host: What about everyone else?
Shouts of either style.
YC: What? What about shaved head? It might become bald soon..
Shouts of agreeing.
Host: Well the shape of your head is nice so shaved head might not be too bad.
YC: Hmmmmm… (not too confident look)


3. English and Japanese

Host: Your English in Miss Ripley was perfect! Can you speak English? (says this part in English)
YC replied in English but it was too fluent to catch his words.
Host: Can you greet everyone in English the?
Again, it was hard to catch his words.
His English was so hot the audience was screaming -> Yoochun smiled shyly.
YC: I’m pretty lucky to have been able to learn how to speak English and Japanese.
YC: How do you say “Noreul wihae bin jari” in Japanese? (T/N: name of his ost)
Host: Kimi no tame no kuuseki
YC: Kuuseki…

He then sang the song, with his eyes closed. It was the first time he sang it live but he put all his emotions into it. So touching.
After the song, Yoochun had to pick the winner of the script. He was careful in making sure he got the right seat numbers when picking the winners. Then after the photo shoot he came back again.

YC: I wonder if it’s okay to say this…It is still yet to be determined but there is a chance that we will come to perform in Japan before the end of this year. This time we feel that we should come and see you all, so we would really like to have a concert. It’s raining today so be careful in returning home. Thank you very much.

Jaejoong Falls Deeply into Directing; On Hyunjoong and Future Directing

JYJ Kim Jaejoong, Immerses Into the Attraction of Directorship. “Wish to Work With Kim Hyunjoong. As for the Album, No Plans Yet.”



JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong who has recently finished the world tour of two months has fallen deeply into the attractiveness of directing.

Kim Jaejoong relayed his thoughts at having finished the JYJ World Tour. About the past two months, Kim Jaejoong expressed in one sentence: “It was fun.”

Kim Jaejoong expressed his pride, saying: “After finishing (the world Tour) I was so thankful to the family of the company and the members and the staff and proud (of them). The songs that went on the concert were also mostly self-composed songs. As for the Asia Tour I had even taken charge of directing. Such a tour concert went even to the USA. Even though there were difficulties and troubles I felt that it was amazing and I was proud that such a large tour was accomplished without anyone’s help but with one’s own strength only.”

Through this World Tour Kim Jaejoong also debuted as a director. When asked which he prefers between acting and directing, he laughed, saying “When I am performing, it feels better to be directing.” Kim Jaejoong revealed: “The director (of Protect the Boss) is so amazing that I am learning the qualities of a director even in the drama. It seems that he takes himself to filing after he finishes all of his considerations. Even so, drama is drama and performing is performing and so I think each as its own appeal.”

Kim Jaejoong picked Bangkok, Thailand where he performed past April as the country that stayed the most in his mind among the JYJ World Tour Concert locations. Kim Jaejoong explained “I think it is that Bangkok is the place of the first concert after I took charge of directing. The responses of the fans were also positive and so I was extremely thankful.”

Director Kim Jaejoong also has desires/hopes to direct concerts and performances of other singers. Kim Jaejoong laughed it off, saying: “I do have interest in directing the concerts of idol groups similar to us. There was a time in which Kim Hyunjoong – he and I are of very close friendship – and I talked lightly in a private setting about releasing an album together and doing activities together. But Kim Hyunjoong also has a lot of desires/hopes on his own music and so I feel that he will say that he will direct it himself.”

He also recalled that he found the directing of Sohn Yeonjae’s rhythmic gymnastics gala show to be very pleasant. Kim Jaejoong said: “Miss Sohn Yeonjae was able to express even better what I intended to portray through directing.” Continuing, he expressed his pride, saying: “I think directing is a field that is more interesting and attractive the more you do it, truly. Of course I am at the level in which I am learning but I feel that my perspective upon the entirety of the performance is becoming larger. During JYJ concert rehearsals, I feel that I am standing on the stage not merely as a singer but that I, who is doing the stage directing behind the sight of the audience, am also becoming a part of our team, and that has been a source of pride.”

At the same time, Artist Kim Jaejoong did not give a definite answer as to a Korean-language album, saying that it is “currently being prepared” but also “I have doubts as to whether it will be possible to release it within this year even though I desire to immediately release songs when good songs come out. I am preparing it from time to time.” Further, as to whether he plans to participate in the OST of Protect the Boss he said that there are none “yet.” Kim Jaejoong left a pregnant but exponentially-increasing anticipation for the fans by saying: “There are no self-composed songs that I made for drama purposes and so it is difficult to participate right away. However if there is a suggestion (for me to participate) I will accept. If it is for the good of the drama.”

Jaejoong - Happiness on Set; "Please Keep Watching Me...I Will Show Improvement With Each Episode"

Kim Jaejoong “Heart Flutters at Acting Debut… Will Move Hearts and Give Laughter”



Kim Jaejoong, who as JYJ is receiving great love that transcends Asia to be from all over the world, is debuting as a rookie actor in the domestic scene. That is done through the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama Protect the Boss that is planned to first air on the 3rd of next month.

Kim Jaejoong stepped out onto acting through the movie Heaven’s Postman, a collaborative project between Korea and Japan of 2009. He appeared with Japan’s top stars Ueno Juri, Eita and such in Sunao Ni Narenakute which was aired in Japan’s Fuji TV to show off a stable acting and received praise.

Further, now Kim Jaejoong is engaging himself in earnest with domestic acting work through Protect the Boss. He has taken the role of Cha Muwon, the “Prince of the Financial World” who has powerful abilities, and plans to show the chic, cold man of the city.

“Until now, I examined carefully the suggestions of movies and dramas, giving them a lot of time. There were some works in which I could not appear because the scheduling or timing were not right. But Protect the Boss has a fun scenario and I thought that the role of Cha Muwon suited me well and so I came to decide on it.”

Protect the Boss, which has received Jaejoong’s choice, is an unprecedented, sweet and thrilling “Tame the Delinquent Chaebol Project” that will unfold as a rookie female secretary meets as her boss a delinquent 2nd generation chaebol. Sohn Junghyun PD of Lovers of Paris and Temptations from an Angel and the writer Kwon Kiyoung who wrote To Become Insane in Love have joined forces.

“The drama is portraying not merely the problems faced by the job seekers but also the hardships endured by the regular people as employees of a corporation. Therefore the message contained in the drama may be a bit heavy. However I believe that inside of that, the drama can form a place of empathy with the viewers and allow them to laugh and be moved at the same time.”

Kim Jaejoong, who was not able to get through a large amount of material because the filming began in earnest only recently, smiled brightly without even realizing when the talk about the atmosphere of the set surfaced and said emphatically: “It is the best.”

“Because my experience in acting is little, all of the sunbaes and sunsang (T/N: teacher) nims do not spare their advice. It is to the degree that Ji Sung hyung-nim calls me to his house separately on days in which there is no filming to practice the script. Saying that the actors who appear in the drama need to become close in order for there to be natural acting on set, there are many opportunities to make friendships. Furthermore, Cha Hwayeon sunsaeng-nim calls me “son” in regular life and takes care of me. Park Youngkyu sunsaeng-nim also takes care of me very well. Nowadays I feel happiness when going to the filming set.”

The drama has been scheduled as the follow-up to City Hunter which is #1 in ratings recently among the Wednesday-Thursday dramas. Would not Jaejoong, who is challenging himself at his first drama, worry already about the ratings?

“I am unable to worry about how the ratings will fare yet. Probably the director and other staff will do so. I for myself plan to concentrate only on the aspects of acting. But probably when the airing begins I will think about the ratings without realizing. When Sungkyunkwan Scandal began, Yoochun who does not even go online very much normally began to examine (ratings) very meticulously. Seeing that, I thought that ‘this is my future.’ (laughter) I hope that it will do well, like City Hunter.”

Kim Jaejoong has received pained moans from the fans upon acting out a kiss scene with Han Hyoju in the movie Postman to Heaven. How will it be if he were to film a kiss scene with an older female in collaborating with Choi Kanghee in this drama?

“The script is not all out yet and so I am not sure as to whether there will be a kiss scene. If it is on the script, of course I must do it. (laughter) Also because Choi Kanghee sunbae and I are a bit apart in age there are many who ask about (how I feel about) older women. In truth, I believethat an age difference is meaningless in a relationship of love.”

He asked sincerely that even though he is Kim Jaejoong who has been active as a singer so far, that on the drama the viewers forget his image on stage and to look at him as the rookie actor Kim Jaejoong.

“The image of myself on top of a stage is likely carved into the minds of the fans quite a lot because I have been active for a long time as a singer. But I hope that when they watch the drama they will look at me as a rookie actor Kim Jaejoong. Even if my acting is very lacking and does not meet your standards, please keep watching me. I will show you an improvement with each episode.”

Tohoshinki & AKB48 to Perform at Opening Event for "Nicofarre"



A next-generation music club managed by Niwango called “nicofarre” – with giant LED screens on every wall and on the ceiling – is going to open its doors on July 18th, and will feature performances from Tohoshinki and AKB48 on its first night.

Niwango is the same company that operates the well-known streaming portal “Nico Nico Douga“. The company revamped its infamous “velfarre” club, which closed its doors more than four years ago, into “nicofarre” by integrating the use of the internet. Since all performances in the club will be streamed live on “Nico Nico Douga”, users will be able to make on-screen comments in real-time that will float across the screens inside the club. More events to further integrate online users are already planned for the future.

Of course, the screens can also be used to enhance performances by creating beautiful backgrounds that turn the whole club into a visual sensations. Thanks to real-time motion capturing, there would even be the opportunity to see live performances from virtual characters.

In addition to special performances from Tohoshinki and AKB48 at the opening event, there will also be live performances from thirty of the most popular amateur singers and dancers from Nico Nico Douga.

Jaejoong Slept Alongside Ji Sung Wearing Only Underwear; Warmth and Fun in Filming Set XD

Jaejoong Slept Alongside Ji Sung Wearing Only Underwear… Twice



Group JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong is in Ji Sung Illness (T/N: Korean term. In this context it means that Jaejoong is occupying himself with Ji Sung.)

Kim Jaejoong is appearing in a domestic drama for the first time through SBS TV’s Protect the Boss. After he tasted acting through the movie Heaven’s Postman, he caught its drift through Sunao Ni Narenakute of Japan’s Fuji TV.

Kim Jaejoong, who will play a second generation chaebol Cha Muwon, is cousins with Cha Jihun played by Ji Sung. They fight over the right of control over the management due to an incident from their parents’ generation, and come to stand in conflict. Jaejoong expresed his thanks: “I struggle with Ji Sung Hyung over power but in truth I became quite close with Hyung. Faced with the awkward atmosphere of (it being) my first drama, I was not able to easily approach (others) but Hyung was kind enough to himself approach me first.”

The impetus that made Jaejoong even closer with Ji sung was the MT that they went on with the cast and staff. Jaejoong confessed: “Before going into the filming in earnest, Ji Sung Hyung organized an MT so I came to go. In the beginning it was awkward because we met as a sunbae and hubae. But later we drank and I came to sleep in our underwears only with Hyung.”

Jaejoong chatted: “After that, Ji Sung contacted me to do script practice together and so I went to his house to play. That day too I came to sleep on Hyung’s bed in my underwear. In the MT, we slept, saying “who cares since we are both men?” As for the second time, he said: “We did it the first time so who cares about the second time?” It seems that as we went through a lot together, we came to be close friends fast.”

Kim Jaejoong is just too happy with the filming set. He tries to contain his laughter watching Ji Sung and Park Youngkyu (58). “Park Youngkyu sunsaeng-nim )T/N: Korean term of respect that literally means “teacher”) is usually very dignified and looks like a gentleman but when he starts acting he is too funny. Ji Sung Hyung is Park Youngkyu sunsaeng-nim’s son and he appears as a delinquent. As such, even lines that seem normal are acted out in slang that does not seem like slang, secret speech. Four-letter words (T/N: curse words) that do not seem like four-letter words appear and it is just too fun.”

Further, he expressed his satisfaction, saying: “As for Ji Sung Hyung, he purposefully helps me a lot. But the others too, I can see, are attempting to take care of me. Choi Kanghee nuna without fail sends me a text if we were not able to say goodbye after the filming is over. It seems that as compared to the number of times that we have met, the nervousness is declining fast. The sunbaes are treating me with such warmth.”

Kim Jaejoong is newly challenging himself with a new determination. He confessed: “When I was filming Heaven’s Postman I was in a stage that was filled with desires/hopes as a singer (only) so did not have such for other fields. As such, I was not able to have either the time or the mindset to film a movie.”

He explained: “There was no one who taught me what a movie was. Also it wasn’t that I was filming continuously, but I was filming a few scenes and then going back to be active as a singer and then filing again. As such, it feels that I just filmed without even understanding the continuity of emotions. I think that because of me Han Hyoju, who filmed with me, also must not have had a calm head. After I filmed a drama in Japan, things changed a lot. I think I learned very much and it was the impetus by which I was able to have the mindset of an actor.”

Kim Jaejoong expressed his confidence: “The message contained in the drama may be a bit heavy. The drama is portraying not merely the problems faced by the job seekers but also the hardships endured by the regular people as employees of a corporation. However I believe that inside of that, the drama can form a place of empathy with the viewers and allow them to laugh and be moved at the same time.”

Jaejoong in OhMyNews. "I wish that instead of being satisfied I will keep being anxious. I like the tension."



Doctor (Kim Jaejoong) in Sunao Ni Narenakute of Japan’s Fuji TV. He is a salesman of a medical equipment company and he confesses his heart to Haru (Ueno Juri) with whom he fell in love at first sight. Doctor, who holds Haru in his arms to confess shyly “Joahe” (T/N: Korean for “I like you”) was enough to make the female heart tremble.

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong who has already debuted in Japan as an actor is undergoing an initiation ceremony as an actor through a Korean drama. He is taking the role of Cha Muwon in the new SBS Wed-Thurs drama that will be aired in coming August, Protect the Boss. Cha Muwon is Ji Sung’s younger cousin.

I met Kim Jaejoong who is being reborn as an actor in the office of OhMyNews located in Seoul, Mapo Gu, Sangam Dong, on the afternoon of the 12th. Kim Jaejoong who was the youngest person on the shooting set was a fresh-faced newbie actor who seemed to have forgotten that it has been 8 years since his debut. I talked with him, who was saying that “It is my regular trade after all—singing is easier than acting.”

Q: You did appear in Heaven’s Postman in 2009 but it seems that after Sunao Ni Narenakute there were many fans who were awaiting “acting Kim Jaejoong.” Why was your debut in the domestic acting scene so late?

“I did try to challenge myself (at acting) a bit earlier. But because of activities as JYJ which was my center and due to circumstances around me, I was unfortunately not able to hasten the time. I came to come visit you (as an actor) only now. If I had done a drama in Korea immediately after Sunao Ni Narenakute I don’t think that the anxiety would have been to this degree. It’s been more than a year and the feelings with regards to acting and everything else feels too new. I am trembling as if I am beginning all over again.”

Q: Did you become close with the actors who will appear together with you in Protect the Boss?

“I am the youngest on the set. Also I am a rookie actor. All of them make me so comfortable. I do not look very fresh-faced on the outside (laughter. He is born in 1986 and is 26 this year) but I am very fresh-faced in spirit.”

Q: Before the first filming, did you watch a lot of dramas and movies?

“I have watched many movies recently. I saw Dung Fly, Suspicious Customers, My Lover Who Seems a Gang. I like sci-fi movies also and I find fun movies that deal with stories that may happen in real life. It seems that they were really people living in that situation so I felt that they were amazing.”

Q: I heard that you got acting instructions from the actor Ahn Naesang. Did he give you much advice?

“I came to know him through the Director-nim (Sohn Junghyun PD of Protect the Boss) and received acting instructions about 3 times. He said that “even though lines are spoken through memorization, acting must be done as if real life” but that is quite difficult.”

“I wish that instead of being satisfied I will keep being anxious. I like the tension.”



Q: Which is eaiser, acting or singing?

(Laughter) “Of course it is singing. Singing is my regular trade. Acting is much more difficult.”

Q: Is the method of production of Japanese dramas very different from that of Korean dramas?

“The systems of production are slightly different. I have only had one filming with Protect the Boss and so I am not sure yet. I am filming a drama in Korea for the first time after all. Would it also not vary even more according to the styles of the PD?”

Q: Park Yoochun, a member, is also appearing in the MBC Monday-Tuesday drama Miss Ripley. As a sunbae in acting, what kind of advice did he give?”

“He said that ‘you are going to suffer from now on.’” (laughter) He said that once filming begins I will be tired for a while. As this is really the beginning now, I need to maintain my health very well.”

Q: In the drama, the title of Cha Muwon is “Director of the Headquarters.” Miss Ripley’s Park Yoochun’s title is also the Director of the Headquarters. How is Cha Muwon of Protect the Boss different from Song Yoohyun of Miss Ripley?

“Before we compare the characters, the genres of the two dramas are different. Yoochun’s drama is a serious, traditional piece. We are a romantic comedy. Since the atmosphere of the dramas are so different I hope that the viewers will not regard the two characters to be the same just because the titles of the Director of the Headquarters are the same.”

Q: Then what are the points of similarity with Cha Muwon, the Prince of the Financial World, and Kim Jaejoong, the human being?

“I think the variety in personality is probably similar. Even though I say that, I am not saying that I have multiple personality disorder. (laughter) My actions and my expressions are all different according to whether I am with the members, when I am with the fans, and when I am in front of those that I’ve never seen before. I think the definiteness of the change is perhaps the common trait
(of Cha Muwon and Kim Jaejoong).”

Q: The title of the drama is Protect the Boss. What is the thing that you wish to protect for sure in your life?

“Ah. There are so many. With what shall I begin. First, the relationship with the members, I want to protect as long as I live. I also want to protect the fans. Also I wish that the projects at which I must challenge myself and the hope that stem from in between them will not disappear. I wish that instead of being satisfied, I will keep being anxious. I like the tension. I felt this while I was acting as the executive director of the Asian Regions of the JYJ World Wide Concert and (the rhythmic gymnast) Sohn Yeonjae’s gala show. It is easier in a variety of ways to just appear in works instead of creating them myself, but I want to keep challenging myself without end.”

Broadcast is the means by which entertainers can appeal their existence the most.



Q: The topics that come in conflict continually not merely in dramas but also in life is “love and success.” To Mr. Jaejoong, which comes first?

“Love and success… would they not be proportioned according to age? One could say that “you have succeeded” but in truth there is no end to success. There is no such thing as satisfaction. I do not even hope for the peak. At the very least, before I marry I want to do as many things as I possibly can.”

Q: Weren’t you someone who was on the side of wanting to marry early?

“Even this year I am thinking that I want to marry early. Because my parents are of age, I feel that to marry early is to refrain from being undutiful/thankless. However my sisters say that “your life is important.” Well, does marriage happen merely because you wish it.”

Q: Do you have any plans to sing for yourself the OST?

“As of now I do not know. I think they are in the process but the song does not seem to have been produced. It should be a problem to decide after the song is produced.”



Q: At the time of the first airing of Miss Ripley there was a lot of talk with regards to appearing in variety programs. If opportunity allows, do you have plans to appear on variety programs as promotions for Protect the Boss?

“Our intentions do not come first. (At the reporter who asked “did you not show us a variety of activities despite the limits on TV appearances) Broadcast is the means by which entertainers can appeal their existence the most. But we are fighting having discarded the most important weapon.”

Kim Jaejoong who is taking the first steps from TVXQ to JYJ and again as a “rookie actor.” When I asked him if he has desires/hopes of the “Best New Actor Award,” he answered: “Geez, I don’t even think about it.” Continuing, he renewed his determination: “Since I have begun, I will do my best.”

I become curious as to his future path, as much as (I learned of) his powerful aspirations.

Kim Jaejoong wants Junsu appear on "I Am A Singer"



It was revealed that JYJ Kim Jaejoong’s teammate, Kim Junsu, want to make appearance on MBC TV’s “Our Sunday Night – I am a Singer”.

Kim Jaejoong said in the interview with TVReport on the 11th, “After watching ‘I am a Singer’, I think it’s great and remarkable,” and “If it’s possible, I want Kim Junsu to appear on that program.”

Then he added, “Junsu is not a picky person. It seems that he can show a very wide variety of music genres.”

He also said, “I have talked with Junsu (about it before), we think that to appear and sing on ‘I am a Singer’ is a great honor and it has a lot of meaning. The songs ranking doesn’t matter. It’s like an honor to appear (on the program), even for only one week.”

Song Ji Hyo Transfers to C-jes Entertainment, JYJ's Agency With 20 Billion Won in Yearly Sales



Song Ji Hyo (real name Chun Sung Im), who has gained popularity through SBS’ ‘Running Man’ as ‘Blank Ji Hyo’, has transferred to JYJ’s agency.

A person close to Song Ji Hyo stated, “Ji Hyo signed a contract with C-JeS Entertainment, JYJ’s agency, that began on July 1st,” and “Details of the down payment or the income division of the contract are unknown.”

Though the act of celebrities changing agencies is a frequent occurrence, Song Ji Hyo’s transfer is garnering great interest because she is the first actress C-JeS Entertainment, whose leading stars are the three former members of TVXQ, has signed a contract with. C-JeS have been working with only Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun till now. (T/N: This is false, Park Yoohwan began working with C-JeS before Song Ji Hyo signed her contract).

Though the three members have not yet ended their legal dispute with their former agency SM Entertainment, it has been found that they have been bringing in yearly sales of 20 billion Won.

A representative of Song Ji Hyo stated, “Ji Hyo, who is in the second prime of her career because of her appearance in variety shows, is currently choosing the production that will be her comeback in the domestic movie industry,” and “She has decided not to appear in the melodramatic movie ‘Never Ending Story’ with Eom Tae Woong.”

Kim Jaejoong Revealed His Shirtless Photo, "Perfect Inverted Triangle"



JYJ member Kim Jaejoong suddenly revealed his tough inverted triangle body built!

Kim Jaejoong uploaded a photo on Twitter, along with the tweet “A photo I thought a lot” on the 12th afternoon.

In the photo taken during drama filming, Kim Jaejoong took off his shirt and displayed his broad shoulders and slim waist, presenting the perfect inverted triangle body built. Due to exercise resulting in not much body fats, the smooth and flat muscles gained attention.

Flipping Over Castle Walls In Search of Golden Star Xiahzart



To Kim Junsu, the musical “Mozart!” was an unforgettable performance he has had. During the earlier half of 2010, He still had no activities since he had left TVXQ. When he was offered to act in a musical, he had wanted to reject the role, as he was worried about being in the unfamiliar musical industry. He tried to put himself in Mozart’s shoes. Mozart went with his father’s wishes, and travelled from Salzburg to Vienna, just to write music for the archbishop. Even though he was a genius, and lived a luxurious life, but that made him fell into deep misery and unfortunate.

The scene where Mozart left Vienna, flipping the high castle walls in search of the “golden star”, he finally lived for himself, and not for his father. Kim Junsu was moved by the song “Why can’t you love me”, sung by Mozart.

Finally, Kim Junsu found himself familiar to the singing and acting techniques in a musical; he perfectly displayed Mozart’s character. He felt blessed, even though he was tired. The audience was also much affected as they watched his performance; when Kim Junsu played the contradicting character of music genius Mozart, the audience laughed together with the happy Mozart, and teared when Mozart cried. When the stage curtains fell each time, the audience would do a standing ovation. This year, during the curtain call in “Mozart!”, he was reminded of that unforgettable moment he had during last year’s performance. The popular idol star Xiah Junsu has successfully transformed into musical star Kim Junsu.

Currently, Kim Junsu, who has performed “Mozart!” twice, is ambitious. Also being a member of JYJ, he would like to try acting in dramas and movies. He would be performing in another musical, which would be different from “Mozart!” and “Tears of Heaven”, and hopes that he would still be able to keep up with his dance steps. He hopes to take a step at a time, in achieving his own goals.

Kim Jaejoong: "If I have a girlfriend, I'll cook a delicious deonjang stew (bean-paste stew) for her"



JYJ Kim Jaejoong is challenging himself as an actor through SBS’s Wed-Thus drama ‘Protect the Boss’. People are anticipating whether he can success as an actor, following JYJ’s other members, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu. Reporter Kook KyungWon (Twitter @k1isonecut) onecut@donga.com

Kim Jaejoong is a jack of all trades (?). There is nothing he can’t do. Aside from being singer, actor, not long ago, he also took care of directing JYJ’s World Tour in Asia and the ‘Gala show of Son YeonJae, the Rhythmic Gymnastics Fairy’. His desire: “I want to challenge myself in everything, except only gag.”

If he has free time, the first thing he wants to challenge is getting Chef Certification. “I think there is a (Dae) JangGeum inside of me. When I taste (a dish), its ingredients come on the tip of my tongue. What was used to make that dish. I’m also at marvelous level (of cooking). Because my mother has good cooking skills, I have grown up by eating delicious foods ever since I was little. Maybe that’s why I’ve come to be able to cook exactly the same dish after eating (that dish) just once. If I go out with Yoochun or Junsu, I’m the one who cook for all of us. Everybody says that it’s delicious. Recently I downloaded the recipe from Internet and made Pork and Pepper Spaghetti. It was the best.”

He said that, with his cooking skills, if he has a girlfriend in the future, he want to cook a delicious deonjang stew for her. “The food I can cook the best is all kinds of stew. If you can put all proper ingredients in the stew and cook it deliciously, it will turn out very good. I can’t wait for it (having a girlfriend and cooking for her). Haha”

*Who volunteer to taste his food? I'm sure there's a line of million girls ^_^*
