[Trans] 100702 Tohoshinki – Stable #1 On Oricon Charts

Even though the group’s activities have been suspended, Tohoshinki’s potential is still amazing.

On the 30th of last month, Tohoshinki’s new albums ” Single B-Side Collection” and “Single A-Side Collection” respectively achieved #1 and #2 on the Oricon charts the day they were officially released.

The next day on July 1, “Single A-Side Collection” claimed #1 and “Single B-Side Collection” held #2 position, both gaining immense popularity.

Although the albums aren’t regular records, they still include all of Tohoshinki’s singles that were released in Japan, which increases the value as a collectible and causes a massive inclination of sales.

Tohoshinki’s total album sales for the top half of the year holds third place overall.

Recently, the 3 Tohoshinki members Xiah Junsu, Hero Jejung, and Micky Yuchun, that are involved in a lawsuit over their contract with SM Entertainment, are recording in America with Asia as their main target. Respectively, U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin are currently involved in the musical “Goong” and the television drama “Paradise Meadow”.

The drama is about a protagonist named Cha Bong Gun who is a talented yet trouble maker soccer player, the whole story tells about his hard struggle both in love and soccer, portraying the fresh/young figure of the character.

‘No Limit~Heading to The Ground’ was already broadcast in Korea last year, the fact that it was Yunho’s first acting attempt in drama was garnering a lot of interest at that time. There are many interesting scenes in this drama, other than the definitely soccer scenes, there were also scenes such as diving into water, fire scenes, and more.

It was hard, but I feel matured through this experience.” he smiled. Yunho also said that due to his role as a soccer player, he slowly began to actually liking the sport as well, just like how he already favorites other sports such as snowboarding and basketball. During the interview, Yunho answered each question politely. Being a sincere and friendly character Yunho is, tells all the reasons of why he got all the popularity in Japan since the first time.

When he was asked about the actor he concerned the most, “For actor, it’s Takeshi Kaneshiro. He has own uniqueness,” he replied. While name as Hayao Miyazaki was mentioned as his favorite Japanese movie maker.

For his first musical stage ‘Goong’ (role as Prince Lee Shin), Yunho revealed that they already started practicing. “Because I like writing, I also have a dream that one day I’ll write my own script.” saying his future wish.

[TRANS] 100708 Actor Yunho: “Believing In Yourself Is Most Important”

Tohoshinki’s Yunho has completed his debut TV drama [No Limit~Heading to the Ground~]. The activities to commemorate the DVD release of this project started off on 26 June, in Tokyo. After such a long break, Yunho once again showed his energetic self to the fans and accepted many media interviews.

This work revolves around the talent, yet unlucky, soccer player Cha Bong Gun; a youthful romance-comedy about his continuous growth. As a member of Tohoshinki, up until now, Yunho, who has driven girls around Asia crazy with their many songs and performances, gave his all to this project from summer last year. Yunho acted as the passionate lead, Cha Bong Gun.

Yunho, who is both a singer and actor, felt the differences greatly. “The singer Yunho, gives off a powerful image on stage. As for the actor Yunho, he had an image that was gentle and warm. I was very happy that I could show a new side of myself.”

“A singer, an actor, my true self; although those personas are different they all follow the same belief – Believing in yourself is the most important. The singer Yunho only has precious 3 minutes in which to capture the audience with stage charisma. The actor Yunho has to place emphasis on communicating. I have to ‘breathe’ with my co-stars to ensure smooth communication flow so that we can work together well. As for Yunho, my true self, I am the kind of person that will fight hard even if there are hurdles to overcome, and from there, attain good results.”

Apparently, Yunho’s principle for handling things is “If you’ve done it, then don’t have any regrets.” “Even though the chosen road may not be the best, but since you’ve made your choice, don’t change your mind. That is life.” He also repeated, “If you do your best, you might very well get good results.”

He said, “There are similarities between Bong Gun and myself, but as I’m the leader, I’m extremely strict with myself. I’m the kind that looks out for things around me even as I work but Bong Gun is the kind that only believes in himself and works his hardest. Bong Gun doesn’t believe in giving up and keeps persisting single-mindedly. To me, that is Bong Gun’s charm and I want to be like Bong Gun and continue working hard.”

Going into the Han River, filming the fire scene, Yunho told himself, “Because I’m a new actor, I had to challenge myself by carrying the thought – ‘this is different from the singer Yunho, I’m a newbie’ – and often asked myself ‘If it was Bong Gun, what would he do?”

Yunho was Bong Gun and Bong Gun was Yunho. Now, Yunho will be making his debut appearance as a musical actor in the musical “Goong”, which begins in September this year.

Yunho’s eyes filled with determination as he said, “I want to work hard in order to show a new side of myself.”

Yunho’s first TV drama [No Limit~Heading to the Ground~DVD BOX I & II] is now on sale and the OST will hit the stands on 25 August.

Since joining Keyeast, Kim Hyun Joong’s career has got off to a good start, with his very own variety show in Japan and now he has more or less been confirmed as the leading man for Playful Kiss (aka It Started With a Kiss).

It’s a known fact that Kim Hyun Joong and Keyeast have been in constant consultations for the leading man role in Playful Kiss with the production company, Group Eight recently. And while there’s still the formality of signing a contract, it’s verbally confirmed/decided and an official statement will be issued soon.

The drama which will be based on the popular manga series, Itazura na Kiss with some changes has already been adapted as dramas in Japan and Taiwan.


Hyun Joong had faced competition from the likes of CNBLUE’s Jung Yonghwa and TVXQ’s Changmin but the former got the nod in the end.


The race for the female lead remains wide open with over 100 female stars auditioning for it. Hot favorite Park Bo Young is being kept in reserve because of her legal woes with her management agency. Others who have auditioned for the role include Park Shin Hye, f(x)’s Sulli, KARA’s Seungyeon although the latter has dropped out of the running because of her group’s Japan schedules.

When did it become not enough to just watch them pensively, the moment we wanted better ourselves, so we are more suitable to stand by their sides
TVXQ, we want to shout to you: we, want make you proud…

When I sing your song, when I dance your dance, when I will feel for you
When I sing for you, when I dance for you, when I will understand to your feelings
Are you like me? Advancing yet another step to make me proud…

Actually, no matter what happened, we understand clearly in our hearts, its time to be strong, we will be stronger than anyone
We love TVXQ, want to protect TVXQ, and want to become TVXQ’s pride
We will always keep the faith
No matter what other people sees in us, or if they ask if we will ever stop
Our hearts are very clear, we will be strong and steady, we will be stronger than anyone and stand firm by their side

The summer of 2010, we danced to the beautiful rhythm of love
Everyday from now on, we believe, our heart that has been through many obstacles, will continue to love
