[News] 100106 Xiah Junsu, Again, Has Set A New Record in Musical Industry




TVXQ’s Xiah Junsu (Kim Junsu) has set a new record in musical industry.

The performance days where Kim Junsu is casted as the main role in Musical Mozart, all seat tickets were sold out. In a short amount of time, the total 15 performances of Kim Junsu with approximately 45,000 tickets were already sold.

Even right after it was known that Kim Junsu was going to be casted, a chaos happened. When the 1st ticket sales opened, his fans bought 6000 tickets in an hour. On the 2nd sale, it sold out in 2 hours and had collapsed the site’s server. For the 3rd and 4th round ticket, despite Kim Junsu’s ticket sales that already opened in different time period (than the other Mozart actors), still the site connection slowed down and the tickets were sold old in only 3 hours.

This is something that never happen since Jo Seung-woo’s all ticket sold out which was ever happened in the past.

Other singers who had been casted in musicals as well such as Super Junior (Kangin, Heechul, Yesung, Sungmin) or Girl’s Generation (Jessica), Big Bang (Daesung, Seungri) and FT Island (Hongki, Jaejin)’s ticket sales has not been comparable to the mass result of Kim Junsu’s.

The ticket power made by Kim Junsu, an inexperienced idol singer in musical industry to set a stage which requires ability to sing, dance, and act at the same time has yet created many controversies. Economists have been predicting there will be more celebrities especially idol singers who will participate in this musical industry in the future.

To cast an idol star definitely never fail in supporting tickets sales. With Kim Junsu appearance, there are more audiences in range age of 10th – early 20th that give bigger attention to such musical genre performance as ‘Mozart’. Even it helps the entire show online ticket sales since the teenagers now have developed interest in watching the musical stage and went booking the other actors’ performances as well.

Let’s expecting the best musical stage “Mozart!” in the first half of 2010, from January 20 to February 21 which will take place at Sejong Cultural Center Grand Theater.

[NEWS] [100106] Changmin, Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu in Australia

- omitted -

As many fans know, TVXQ maknae Changmin, who will play Hang Dong Joo in Paradise Meadow, recently flew to Australia to (finally) begin overseas filming for the upcoming drama, traveling to Brisbane during his trip.

But it looks like he isn't the only one taking a trip to the Land Down Under: Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu + Ricky Park, Yoochun's younger brother, + possibly Keita Tachibana (w-inds) were spotted in a Sydney airport today. Four out of five members (and a bonus relative & another celeb) in Australia in a matter of days.

- omitted -

It's believed that the boys are on their annual vacation and the Australia thing is just a coincidence. A staff member confirmed to a lucky fan that the boys were in Australia for a photoshoot. Others believe that JaeChunSu is in Australia to give Changmin support for his filming, but, well, the photoshoot theory sounds much more plausible. After all, the boys have traveled to other grandeur destinations, such as the Grand Canyon (USA) and Paris (France) for similar reasons in the past.

[NEWS] [100106] Japanese Fan’s Support Ad in Korean Newspaper:


“South Korea, China and Japan are one large union! by Cassie"

"Five Balloons" of the Japanese fan gathering of TVXQ which Kei☆Tand Keroko (both handle name) serve as their
representative carried an aid advertisement to support TVXQ on January 4th in the general newspaper page
of "Chuo Nippo" of South Korea.

This organization begun the fund-raising campaign named “Tohoshiki SMILE Project” for an aid advertisement,
and attained their target figure on December 25. Finally, the total fund-raising amount reached to
2,728,000 yen, and this aid advertising printing had been accomplished.

In the advertisement, five balloons with the names of the five members of TVXQ appeared
on the blue sky, with the written message of love from Japanese fans,


"JUNSU, YUCHON, JEAJOON, CHANGMIN, YUNHO of TVXQ,

We love you forever,

and we will keep on waiting

until you can show us your smile from the bottom of your heart.

With much love and gratitude, from Japan,”



Many comments were written in a TVXQ's Korean fan site "DNBN",

"I am really impressed by Japanese fans",

"It seems that our nationality, age and gender do not matter when we love TVXQ",

"We were moved by Chinese fans (Chinese fans aid advertisement was carried in the newspaper a while ago),
and now Japanese fans. South Korea, China and Japan are one large union."
(T/N: International fans are one with them as well, right?!! YEY!! )

-omitted

It seems that many fans want five members to work together continuously in 2010.

[FANACC] [100106] Changmin Arriving at Brisbane, Australia

January 3rd, around 22:15, a classmate told me about the 19:35's airplane arrival.


So, I checked Gimpo, Incheon, Seoul's airplane time table, and found that there is a plane to Brisbane… So I was very excited… later I decided to skip class next day to go to the airport, and arranged rides with a classmate…

The wait was long… from 6:40AM… Thank goodness I had classmates with me that chatted with me (Ps. I'm very proud of myself to be able to connect to the internet at the airport), so during the wait I finished a paper, and watched Dating on Earth again… and did many other things… About 5:40… There were more people in the airport…

I sat outside the exit… waited and waited, around 6:40, the airport screen showed airplane KE123 LANDED… I got very excited… gathered all my things… waited and waited… Searching very carefully afraid to miss him… After a long time, when I wanted to go home, the door opened… a very tall guy dressed in all black watched this way, and even looked my way, the look in my eyes might have scared him… After that, he continued walking with his friends, laughing at talking… There weren't any bodyguards or reporters, or any screaming, he was just like a regular traveler.

After that, I followed them (I was probably caught, I was way too excited), because I watched too fast to catch up with them, I was like walking right by him… I was excited to death… Later a guy went to the trashcan, Changmin went as well, I followed… I tried to go talk to him, Min was startled for a second, then the guy by him stood in between us, thought I was Korean (I'm Chinese, CHINESE!!!), and started talking to me in Korean, I didn't understand any of it, so I started speaking English, but I was so nervous, and spoke in a very quiet voice, that guy kept on asking "mo? mo?" … then Min smiled at me… (I spazzed) waved at them, and ran away. Then I went upstairs and kept an eye on them. Though when I became hungry, I went to find food and lost them. Who knew my luck was this good, at the place I went to eat, I meet them again… hahahaha… Min sat in the middle of the crowd laughing very happily. When I left, they were still there… hehehehe… This is the first time I noticed, Brisbane could be this lovely…

[TRANS] [100106] Three Options for TVXQ by MyDaily

(T/N: Please keep in mind that this is just an article by MyDaily Korea. The three options are NO ONE's official stand, but only options that are viewed by MyDaily to be possible endings for TVXQ's legal case from all the facts/rumors gathered)

This article is also at dnbn (for you loyal dnbn followers), but still in private mode, or maybe will be deleted tongue.

(An excerpt from article MyDaily Korea)

Ever since 3 TVXQ members Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu filed an application disposition to terminate their exclusive contract effect, the future of TVXQ is not yet resolved. For all TVXQ fans who wish the group not to be disbanded, this ongoing period is sure a stuffy situation.

However from the recent happenings about this group, seems that there are three possible choices TVXQ may needs to choose in the future.

1. The expiration contract with AVEX in following June and a farewell concert which will be their last concert both in Japan and Korea (we all know the farewell concert is from Sports Nippon article. MyDaily also put the official stand from both AVEX and SM which denied this, but to see the fact TVXQ contract does actually expire in June, this option is seen as possible).

2. Since now the name of Dong Bang Shin Ki is owned by SM, so there’s a chance that the group will continue to work separately as 3:2 team in Korea, however for activities in Asian market including Japan, they’ll team up as five members to work together.

3. The option that most of TVXQ fans wish, having a final reconciliation and a dramatic agreement.

Since SM Entertainment has always been saying, “We want the 3 TVXQ members to return, and let’s having a frank talk together.”, there’s always a chance for both parties to be able to form an amicable settlement before any legal decision shall be made. This is indeed what the fans desperately wish for.

Note from editor: sorry for my laziness to translate the whole article, I’m too sleepy… but this is the main point.

[FANACC] [100106] JaeSuChun's Sydney Vacation


Airport Encounter~

I wasn't able to sleep the whole night out of excitement, departed at 630am, and waited from 7am to 10am. Luckily that there weren’t a lot of fans there, around 50 of them were there (from Korea, China, Thailand, etc.).

Everyone got their cameras ready, and suddenly all the Korean Cassies started screaming for a second and everyone rushed over to where the screams were coming from. JaeJoong must have thought that there wouldn't be anyone waiting and walked out from the arrival hall, but ran back in after he heard the screams. Everyone was excited! The manager first walked out and had a conversation with the tourists and checked the transport arrangements and stuff before going back to where JaeSuChun were. Korean Cassies ran over to their manager and he said no picture taking~ All the fans then kept their cameras~

When JaeJoong, JunSu and YooChun walked out from the arrival hall, they were all happy and high, YooChun even took out his DV and recorded down the surroundings and everyone. A Korean Cassies managed to pass a flower and letter to JunSu! JaeJoong walked through the pathway to where their car was! YooChun even waved to us and said GOODBYE~


Hotel Encounter~

We were a big group (Chinese Cassies), and we had no idea where the Korean Cassies had gone to, maybe they had returned home or…

We made numerous phonecalls, changed countless taxis, and went to one after another hotel to check. Finally they are at --- Hotel!! Therefore we rushed over there straight. Together with 3 other friends, we reached there first, and were thinking to find a café and rest~ I was really tired and was even thinking of sitting down at the hotel atrium sofa! Who knows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At that moment! JaeJoong and friends were right in front of me, our distance was as close as what you normally have when having a conversation with your close friend!! My mind was blank!! (I’m not experienced in this!)

I took a deep breath, JaeJoong looked at me for about 5 seconds and quickly walked away with his friends to the lift lobby~ I was still staring at him while they were waiting for the lift.

After that, we were just resting at the café and just when we were prepared to leave, YooChun and Ricky together with the staff walked over.

Fish said, “Why don’t we try to talk to their manager, that we won’t make any noise, neither will we take any pictures, and just let us stay at the side and watch our idol?” And they allowed!! Therefore we were able to stay at the side, YooChun was busy taking pictures, and had a chat with the hotel porter!!! They were all waiting for JaeJoong and JunSu to come down from their room~

All these~~ just so real… I’m beyond speechless!!

The moment JaeJoong appeared; he rushed straight to the car and we were not able to catch him! While YooChun was still playing around outside their car, not long after, JunSu appeared! Everyone were dressed in smart casual and then, they set off. We were all tired and decided to go home after this, therefore I bid goodbye to my friends and walk passed the front of their car. Maybe they thought that I was up to something, and everyone in the car turned their head and looked at me!! JaeJoong is the only one that I can see clearly of!! So I waved to them happily and said, “Annyoung~~ Byebye~~~” and took a taxi home.

[Trans] 100107 TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho Visits Grandmother In Hospital

TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho is garnering attention for visiting the JangsungHyo Love Hospital in Jeolla Province during the afternoon of the 6th to give his greetings for the New Year.

U-Know Yunho was there to visit his grandmother at the hospital as soon as he returned from his activities in Japan.

U-Know Yunho, who went to visit his grandmother at the hospital despite his busy schedule, gave the elderly at the hospital rice cakes and drinks and is said to have had a great time with them.

The reason that U-Know Yunho’s visit is in the spotlight is because not many family members visit patients due to the nature of the long-term hospital so he is being seen as a role model for his visit there.

On the other hand, TVXQ, in which U-Know Yunho is a member, ranked as the most searched artiste at the Kouhaku Uta Gassen 2009 and solidified their popularity overseas as well as in Korea.

[Trans] 100107 From Backdancer To Dancing Singer (U-Know Yunho)



The walls of Kpop are crumbling down. Comedians and actors are putting out albums and singers in reverse are entering the fields of acting and comedy as well. This is why many new terms such as Gaegaman (Gaegeuman “Comedian)+Gasoo (singer)” and Telgamen “Telunteu(Actor)+Gasoo(singer)”.

No longer do only comedians make people laugh or only singers sing. Reality has made being good in only one field no longer useful in the competitive industry. Kpop has evolved and changed so much that the joking comment that “If you’re good at singing, go be a singer” can no longer be used meaningfully.

How people become singers is also changing as well. There are many cases where people become singers because they are good at singing, but there is an increasing number of people who become singers after being backdancers who stood behind other singers and let them shine. In today’s industry, we are seeing them stepping up to the spotlight. They are stars who have gone from supporting actors to leads.

(omitted)

U-Know Yunho, part of Asia’s hottest group TVXQ, first became known by performing as Dana’s rapper and backdancer in her solo album. Dana is currently part of TSZX the Grace but was performing as a high-school singer before TVXQ’s 2004 debut.

(omitted)

Singers who used to be backdancers succeed because of their determination and effort. Backdancers are said to stay up for an entire week making choreography for a singer and make singers shine even when it gets them small injuries and bruises.

The backdancer who came up with Jewelry’s E.T. dance said, “The reason they were able to succeed as singers was because of their cow-like determination, ceaseless hard work and diligent rehearsals.”

[Trans] 100108 Modern Mozart Make-up, It Fits Park Gun Hyung And Kim Junsu Well

Interview with make-up artist of Mozart!

Make-up Artist Kim Yoo Sun has a unique love for wigs



“I want to hear ‘Your work for the musical Mozart! was good.’”

Musicals ‘Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Empress Myeongseong’, ‘Hairspray’ and ‘Chicago’. What is the similarity between these unique musicals? Extravagance. And that extravagance existed because of make-up artist Kim Yoo Sun.

“I prefer musicals because they are more extravagant and larger in scale than plays,” says Kim Yoo Sun and he has been put in charge of make-up for the musical [Mozart!] that is “a position any make-up artist would envy.”

This was his first official interview so he was shy at first but he showed his unique love and pride for wigs throughout the interview. We met with the man who has lived since November buried in the 200 or so wigs that are to be used in Mozart!

“I fell in love with the music of Mozart!, and I’m confident.”

Although he has helped with musical productions for over 20 years, the scale of Mozart! is different from others as the 200 handmade wigs required for the production compare with the 100 imported wigs that needed repair in ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and the 80 handmade wigs in ‘Hairspray’. His words are not exaggerations when he says, “Wigs account for 95% of the job,” and that “This is the biggest amount of wigs I’ve worked with yet.”

However, make-up artist Kim Yoo Sun accepted this job with more confidence than stress from responsibility. He, who grew up with music close to his side since he was young, expressed what his feelings were when he was given the job offer and said, “I heard Mozart’s music, and I fell in love with the crossover of the genres of rock and classical,” and “A job this big of a scale requiring over 200 wigs is a job any make-up artist would envy.”

Modern Mozart make-up, it fits Park Gun Hyung and Kim Junsu well


The entire cast must wear wigs, each role has at least three and as many as seven. Each wig was duplicated three times. It can be inferred that the wig production of Mozart! is at least two to three times bigger than past jobs. It takes around a week to make each wig, and there are around 20 designers employed for wigs. They began making wigs after the casting of the cast was finished in November.

Since the head block (shape of the head) is different for each person, each member of the cast requires his or her own wig. This applies especially for the four Mozarts (Lim Tae Gyung, Park Eun Tae, Park Gun Hyung and Kim Junsu).

Like his explanation that “Mozart is the center of the spotlight visually in this musical,” Mozart enters the scene wearing jeans and sporting ‘drag hair’.

It would have been difficult to make a modern Mozart, but to him, who “Traveled to 30 countries for overseas shows and saw various cultures,” the blending of modern and past was not very hard. He was able to add a modern twist for all of the cast instead of just focusing on Mozart.
