The things that I’m unable to say now, someday before I die, I will definitely speak without concealing anything.

Tweeted at 3.30AM, 4 April



Whether they do solo activities or activities as a unit, I wish that Avex can be their management in Japan. I wonder if the Korean side will permit it……



Things that will be better if you know, things that won’t hurt you if you don’t know, one day, I wish to let all of you know..

Tweeted at 3.35AM, 4 April




There’s also the wonderful creator Lee Soo Man, so, surely some day…

[TRANS] 100404 Eriko Kitagawa’s Blog Update

I know I have to write this.
Oh, this is just my personal matter, but I again found a negative comment concerning Jaejoong in the comment section.
So deep in my heart, I am thinking that I don’t want to write again.
But I will.
I’d feel frustrated with myself if I get licked by those little things.

I did not know of this situation.
I think I have also made my comment on my twitter before,
but I never spoke about the topic,
and he never spoke about it, too.
So I thought I’d leave it as it is.

And, our relations are rather new.

But for me, a person who played the leading role in my works cannot be thought as a stranger.
Mostly, the other person seems to think of the same.
So I was secretly worried about them.

I am sorry.
I am really sorry.
I really wanted to watch their performance in Tokyo Dome with everyone here.
When I went to watch B’z concert, I came to know that many following this blog have also gone to their concert.
I was very delighted.
If they (I cannot write down that 4 characters here) perform at the Tokyo Dome,
I will set my cellular phone so that I can write this ameblo blog from outside.
Then, we can share our information where we are right now
and, we can gather stream together.
I was thinking like this, with a serious mind.

Thank you for sending their CD to me.
I heard their songs, many times, during my break at work.

I understand all of your lonely and sad feelings. (I also thought that I could not live, when my favorite group OFF COURSE was in such situations.)
But I think that the happiness of the 5 members should be the most important.

Please forgive them.
Some may be thinking that
they ripped off your enjoys,
or that they were your lights.
Please forgive the 5.
I think that they are truly sorry for all of this.
(For those who do not want to hear these words from me, please do not read these sentences. I am sorry that I am being rather picky. I have gone through a lot of unpleasantness…)

I think that the 5 are the ones who are in the most pain.
(I have never talked about this with Jaejoong, though.)
I am imagining like this.
Even though they are the ones selected from god,
that person’s life is for himself.
Before being selected from god, he was a tiny little baby, born from his mother.
They are regular people.

Let’s support the future of the 5
with the feelings “Thank you for being the light of our lives”.
If you truly love them, and that you are saying that you will continue to love them.

I do not know whether or not they will be active as the 5 members again.
My only wish is that the young 5 people will be happy, and do their best in the future.

I am thinking.
Of Michael Jackson, who died though his was still young in age.
Do you think that it is completely a different story?

A person should not live for others.
A person should live for himself.
So, the most important thing should be; to think about their happiness.

This is my true feelings, from me, who have seen many artists.

I am praying for all of your health and happiness.

[Trans] 100404 Chiba Twitter Update

Dragon-san Are they happy with this? How do you feel?
– Its sad but I want to make the future with them.

I’m looking forward to it! What did you talk about with Jaejoong~? I want to know ill be waiting(*^o^*)
– Its a guy talk. I won’t answer next~

Is Beetv looking for a scriptwriter? I really want to apply!
– Send it anytime to the production to Pigumon Yanazasaki.
Excuse me from replying now.

It’s a secret but it seems that the title is “lovin you”. He will be playing a young guy who suffers from the financial group and later falls in love with a Yamatonadeshiko (a graceful Japanese woman). Fuji TV made it, pi-pi-pi-pi-.I’ve broke down. Goodnight. I tried my best. I’m sorry.

I can’t do it anymore. Everything is coming to my head now the alcohol,the promise, and saying things I’m not supposed to say. I got in trouble for tweeting about Yoochun’s drama. But thank you. Its already 2. Its only 2. Goodnight. I’m not going to sleep. I will sleep. I won’t sleep. Which is it. Good night.

[TRANS] 100405 Tohoshinki Who Are On Hiatus Receive 6,000 Emails


On the 4th, a day after it was revealed that the popular, 5-member Korean group Tohoshinki is going on an indefinite hiatus, their official fanclub [Bigeast] received a flood of more than 6,000 emails of supportive messages on their site.

According to their recording company, Avex, the contents were, “I’ll wait for when all 5 of them come back together again” and “continue the fanclub”. There were also mails from Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and more.

Upon receiving news of the pause in their activities, the fans’ reactions seemed to be more calm than expected. Also, since it’s a “pause on activities” and not “disbandment”, there are many who believe that there will come a day when all 5 of them will do activities together again.

The fans said, “The fanclub is the place where all 5 members can return and be complete” and some fans are energetically starting activities to try and ensure the continuance of the fanclub.

There have been messages posted on Internet bulletin boards calling out to other fans to send messages to the management office to ask for the continuation of the fanclub and there are fans who have posted a similar call on their personal blogs. In addition, there are also fans who are recruiting participants for a plan to simultaneously send letters of support to the members.

On the other hand, scriptwriter Eriko Kitagawa (48), a big fan of Tohoshinki, poured out her feelings on her blog that same day, “I am really disappointed.” However, she continued, “Although I understand everyone’s (fans’) feelings of loneliness and sadness, this is what I think. Their own personal happiness should come first.” She also pointed out the reason why the 5 members had to make that tough decision, “People should not live for others. A person should live life for himself.”

ISSA from DA PUMP, who is also from the same recording company, shared, “There was a change in our members during the early days and although there were things that I wanted to do for myself, there was no means for me to do it.” He also sent a supportive cheer, “I hope that the 5 members who work so hard will flourish wherever they are.”

[News] Jaejoong kimchi controversy

Last week, FujiTV did broadcast AnAn offshot before the release of the magazine with Jaejoong on cover. If you think the sexy actions of TVXQ lead vocal would shock people, you’re wrong.

In Korea, when you take a picture, the magic word that make you show your teeth to the photographer is “kimchi!”. And for those who saw AnAn offshot, I’m sure you didn’t miss Jaejoong cute “kimchi” pose.. or should I say: JJ cute “kimuchi” pose. Netizens didn’t miss this and spread their anger by feeding a new “kimchi-kimuchi” controversy.

Indeed, last summer, korean actor Jung WooSung had to apologize for misspelling “kimchi”, he wrote “kimuchi”, on japanese tv. Why is it so scandalous? Historically, Japan tried to have “kimuchi” as the official spelling of “kimchi” in english and made their own version(read “Japan Korea Kimchi Dispute“)

For some netizens, it’s all about korean culture and identity. And others say that Jaejoong mispronounced it, or tried to be funny for Japanese medias. Let’s see what will happen next.”

[Pic] 100404 Stalking Yoochun

“TVXQ members goes to that Korean restaurant since their debut in Japan. When they can’t come restaurant delivers to their dorm. Same for other Korean entertainers. Today, Micky Yoochun came and we heard a woman screaming, then other customers were surprised. They became really popular and made Koreans living in Japan very proud! Yoochun was looking at the wall until he found Jaejoong signature. Then he talked with the manager and bow politely before leaving.”

T/N: we don’t know if he had lunch or if he just came to say “hi”

[TRANS] 100404 “I Believe That Tohoshinki Will Come Back with Smiling Faces”

On the 3rd, an announcement was made by avex that the Korean dance-vocal quintet Tohoshinki, whose total sales in Japan have exceeded 5 million copies and who has appeared on NHK’s Kouhaku Utagassen for 2 consecutive years, will be taking an indefinite break. The reason of this is known to be because of the contract dispute between their Korean company and the 3 members, and after a conference made between the 5 of them and the officials from both Japan and Korea, they have come to a decision to suspend their activities. From now on they will be focusing on their solo activities.

Tohoshinki who had already been a top star in Korea started in Japan as a new artist, mastered the language, and did their activities steadily and honestly. In the beginning, most of their fans consist of women in their 30s and 40s who are Hallyu fans. However, after their great efforts to improve their dancing and singing in Japanese, their fanbase has spread to females who are in their 10s and 20s, and they have become a top star in Japan.

Because the cause of this is the contract dispute with their Korean company, with such great efforts that they’re carrying, this break is not something we should be sad about. Because the cause is definitely not that the members hate each other. I want them to do well with their solo activities, and I want to wait believing that the 5 of them to come back with great success and smiles on their faces.

[Trans] 100414 Asada Mao goes to Tohoshinki’s usual Korean food restaurant

Asada Mao(19) goes to Tohoshinki’s usual Korean food restaurant and shows smile at night “Junsu(23) LOVE”Even asked a waiter and got the “Junsu seat”!!

Asada Mao(19) who answered a interview at the ice show “Stars on Ice” saying “Right now what im interested in the most is gourmet. I want to eat a lot of good food”.

Just like what she said at the press conference on the night of the 8th after practice with her mother and sister she went inside a Korean food restaurant in Akasaka with her “glasses outfit”.

The restaurant is very popular starting from Tohoshinki, Park Yongha, Ryu Siwon and many other Korean stars. Also many Japanese actors and idols visit and there are a lot of autographs inside the restaurant.

“Where Mao-chan sat was the 4th floor and the very inside. That’s where usually the Tohoshinki members sit. Mai-chan(her sister) and Mao-chan passionately requested the seat”-Staff.

After coming to this restaurant in 2004 for the first time, Tohoshinki has become their usual.After it became a new year, in January Changmin(22), in February Jaejoong(24) came with the staffs. Also in April Yoochun(23) came too.

Also the seat that they always sit is the 4th floor in the very inside seat. The sisters knew very rare information it seems that the sisters are a big fan of Tohoshinki.

“Originally Mai-chan was their fan but Mao-chan became their fan too. It seemed that they were screaming over them when they appeared on last years ‘Kouhaku Utagassen’”-skate staff

Mao-chan got her “favorite member’s” seat. “Mao-chan likes Junsu-san(23) especially. She seemed to care where he sat. She asked the waiter which menu Junsu ordered and at the end the 3 were laughing and seemed to have fun eating”-restaurant staff

What she ordered was pork meat and kimchi inside a mountain yam which is called a Possamu. In 2007 June Tohoshinki and Ryu Siwon actually came together and ordered that menu. Other than that Mao-chan ordered Galbijjim, Bulgogi,and Samgytang. It seemed that they were happy eating it.

About 1hour and a half after they finished the Korean gourmet, they didn’t catch a taxi but instead they walked in the busy night.
