[News] SM Entertainment reports loss of 4 billion won from karaoke business

It has been reported that SM Entertainment (SME) has lost a monstrous sum of 4 billion won (approx. US $3.7 million) in the last 4 years, which coincides with the company’s expansion into the karaoke business.

In 2006, SM Bravo, a company that specialised in karaoke machines, was incorporated as a subsidiary by SM Entertainment in order for SME to expand their operations into the karaoke industry. Additionally, SM Amusement, a different company affiliated with the karaoke industry, was added to the list of subsidiaries when SM Entertainment incorporated it in 2008.

At the time of this expansion, SM Entertainment had announced that they would revolutionize the karaoke industry with their expertise in the Korean and Asian music market, as well as their influential network-ability in Asia.

However, after four years into this expansion, there remains only two karaoke establishments that are operating somewhat effectively. Additionally, the value and worth of the subsidiary company’s are failing to increase despite continued investments.


To summarise the total loss made my SM Entertainment:
SM Bravo has invested a total of 6 billion won, but by end of August 2010 it was reported that only 3.4 billion won was what remained of the account, resulting to a loss of 2.4 billion won.
SM Amusement has invested a total of 1.4 billion won, but as per bi-annual report, the investment has gone down the drain with the total resulting to impaired/eroded capital.

As a result of the loss, SM Bravo will be undergoing a merge with SM Amusement, with an SME representative stating, “A remodelling of the karaoke business was necessary and hence we are in the process of merging the subsidiaries together. Once they have merged we will come up with a brand new business plan.”

Meanwhile, netizens have voiced their opinions, “Don’t they know what happens when you start carrying too many eggs in one basket?”, “So that’s where all the hard earned cash from their artists go to”, “What a waste of sweat and tears from SNSD, Suju, Shinee, F(x)”, and my personal favourite comment – “This is a classic example of a parent running down their business and making their kids earn the money for them. And when the kids hand over their hard earned cash the parents then spend it on useless things instead of paying off their debt. Once the kids start telling them to stop the nonsense, the parents then tell them not to bite off the hand that feeds them when it’s obvious that the kids are feeding themselves with their own hands.”

[Trans] 101009 Uwe Kroger Mentioned about Junsu During Interview

Uwe Kroger took role of Archbishop Colloredo in musical Mozart, appearing on the same stage as Kim Junsu. He had been starring as Colloredo starting from 2006 Mozart world performance.

During the rehearsal with Junsu, Kroger’s initial impression when practicing harmonization was the chorus and acting precisely matches the German version even though of course it’s entirely performed in Korean, thus it is very interesting. Since the musical is worked by different countries, sometimes the interpretation of the work turn to be different. Yet Korean actors’ deep performance has left him a deep impression. There wasn’t any extra interpretation and the performance was straight forward. Just by looking at the actors’ expressions, you can feel what they ought to say.

When Uwe Kroger was asked about evaluating TVXQ’s Kim Junsu as an actor, he said, taking into consideration that Junsu didn’t even receive adequate acting lessons, his acting was very natural.

[Trans] Levay’s letter to Junsu and Junsu’s reply from the official photobook

Dear Jun Soo,

When we met on the opening night of “Mozart!” in Seoul, in Sejong theater end of January of this Year, you said to me that you liked my music, and asked me if I would be willing to write you a Song. I remember telling you immediately “yes”.
Since that day I was frequesntly thinking about that song, because you have made a great impression on me: you are incredibly telented, determined artist, and at the same time a very modest and humble person. Up until now, I haven’t encountered many artists like you.
To write the Song for you, that I promised, I had to wait for the right moment. After the idea for your Concerts in the Olympic hall of Seoul was born, I knew this is the right time! Then I started to think about a concept and the character of the song that I should write for you.
One day in Vienna I was playing on my Grand Piano, and the basic theme was born. But I knew immediately, that I don’t want to just make a song out of this idea, that is not enough, it has to be more than that.


So after working several weeks on this basic version, I decided to musically paint a picture; to compose a story with this song. My imagination was, that there is a narration in the beginning, where I play the piano solo, and then the part of your singing is an emotional story; with a dramatic part which builds up, and then it resolves hope redemption.
Now that, for sure, wasn’t easy. At least I didn’t expect it to be so demanding. I was composing every day, and I also spent many sleepless nights over it. The musical images started to develop, but sometimes in a way that I haven’t experienced very often. One day everything was right, by the next day I had to start all over again. Day after day.
So I ended up with about eight versions of the song. Sometimes it was frustrating, yet I felt that I was moving bit by bit in the right direction. I knew I have to be patient, very patient.
The most important thing was for me, that I would have be able to imagine you singing this song on the stage in your concerts.
This was the most important thing to me, because I was writing this song not only for you, dear jun Soo, but for your faithful audience as well.
I truly hope that you will like the song, because than I am sure that your audience will like it too.
Looking forward to our concerts in Seoul, and to the world premiere of the song I’ve wrote for you.

With my best regards
Sincerely yours
Sylvester Levay
Neuhausen, September 6th 2010

Dear Levay,

We started rehearsal for Mozart! and Elisabeth last week.
And today I received the score for the new song for the first time
After finish rehearsing the new song for the first time
I read the letter that you sent
I am writing this letter to you to show you how deeply thankful I am.
To provide such a grand and beautiful song for a person like me…
For me to be given a chance to sing this song..
It is a great honor.
I was deeply moved, when I heard that you spent day and night working on this song.
It is my turn now to spend day and night practising this song.
When I first heard this song,
I was thinking exactly what you were thinking
I was imagining singing this song with you on stage
The beginning is grand and at the same time, I felt that there was a message in the ending of the music.
The first time we met, the situation I am in now and for the fans that have been waiting so long…
This is a song that can make up for everything, like ran after the drought.
I can’t wait for the day we meet and introduce this song to the fans.
I thank you again.
Now I am off back to practice again!!
I will try my best to not disappoint you.

Jun Soo

[Trans] 101013 JYJ’s First Showcase: “We Finally Stood On Stage With Mics In Hand” + Q&A

TVXQ members Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu, who formed a male trio JYJ, finally stood in front of their Korean fans for the first time.

At 9PM on the 12th, JYJ held their 「JYJ Worldwide Showcase」 in Hwajeong Gymnasium, Korea University, Anam-dong, Seoul, and showed off their bright and confident images.

On that day, it was the first public exhibit of JYJ’s first worldwide album 「The Beginning」, which the trio had worked together with famous American producers Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins. During the LIVE, 4 songs from that album, as well as the OST song 「Chajatta」 from KBS2′s drama 「Sungkyunkwan Scandal」, were introduced. This album has attracted a lot of attention because it includes songs by each of the trio, composed from when they were teens. Through their powerful voices and refined choreography, one could catch a glimpse of the sincerity and effort the trio have put into this album.

Next, is a question and answer with JYJ:

– How do you feel, standing on the stage after such a long time?

JJ: Completely grateful. This is the first time we recorded an album in which the songs are all in English, so it might be unfamiliar, but as the fans are familiar with our voices, I hope they’ll listen to it well. As we spent a lot of time preparing for this album, I hope that the fans will enjoy it with all their hearts.

– This is JYJ’s first album. Are there any new feelings?

JS: The album and our music are our means of communication with the fans, so I worried a lot. Through our fans’ support, we were able to release the album without any problems, so I’m really happy.

– The producers involved in this album are very famous people.

YC: I’m really happy to have been able to work with such famous people that I’ve only heard about when I was living in the United States during my childhood. The recording also has special sentimental value because the recording studio that we used also had connections to Michael Jackson.

– In June, after the LIVE in Japan’s Tokyo Dome, Jaejoong cried as he came down the stage.

JJ: Before we did the performances at the Tokyo Dome, we also had a round of LIVES at Osaka. In Osaka, I started crying from the very first song. All the things that we couldn’t express in words were expressed through our expressions. After we sang the last song at the Tokyo Dome, the fans started shouting “Don’t cry”, and that was when the tears came. It wasn’t for the past nor the future; those tears were to express the sadness (I felt) for the present situation.

– Are there any idols among the Korean idols that have caught your eye?

YC: I’ve been really busy lately so I haven’t really been watching TV. Although I’ve only heard their song and not seen them on TV, it seems like Miss A surpasses (the rest) in terms of ability.

– Your resolution henceforth.

YC: We were able to hold mics and stand on stage, as well as meet our fans again. From now on when we release a second album, or when we release albums in future, I hope that people will have the thought of always wanting to listen to our songs. I’m really happy that I’ve been so busy during this period of time. I would be happy if it’s the same in future.

[Trans] 101012 JYJ Showcase In Seoul – “Unable To Express With Words”

Making a comeback as JYJ, TVXQ members Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu had their debut showcase ‘JYJ Worldwide Showcase in Seoul’ for their new album ‘The Beginning’ on the night of October 12 at Korea University Hwajung Gymnasium.

With Kim Tae Hyun initiating the interactions between the fans as the MC, the members of JYJ revealed their honest feelings about returning the Korea’s music scene.

With regards to the reason for their tears at their Tokyo Dome Live, they replied, “Tears already came out at the start of the performance. When we were unable to express ourselves with words, our expressions were more frank and open, but in the future, we will try our best to smile during sad times.”

JYJ reminisced saying, “At that time, the members promised not to cry until the very end, but we couldn’t hold it in any longer. It wasn’t because of the past, nor the future, but because of the current situation. This is for sure a feeling that cannot be expressed with words.”

Through this time’s showcase, JYJ revealed for the first time to their Korean fans, their worldwide album, ‘The Beginning’, which was produced by Kanye West and other top American producers. The live songs they say included ‘Ayyy Girl’, ‘Empty’, ‘Be My Girl’, among others. Especially, with a sales volume of over 100 000 copies, the main OST that received popularity through TV drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, ‘Chajatta’ received a massive response from fans at the showcase.

[NEWS] 101013 JYJ Members Perform At Korea Leg Of Worldwide Showcase

JYJ members Yuchun, Jaejoong and Junsu perform at their showcase held at Korea University’s Hwaseong Tiger Dome in Seoul, South Korea on October 12, 2010. [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]

Jaejoong, Yuchun and Junsu, former members of boy band TVXQ, performed in front of their fans yesterday for the first time as JYJ, their newly-formed trio.

They met with thousands of local and foreign fans at the Korea leg of their worldwide showcase held twice at Korea University’s Hwaseong Tiger Dome.

The show began with a video introducing the three members, followed by their performances of English-recorded songs “Empty,” composed by famed U.S. producer Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jenkins, and “Be the One.”

Another clip featured Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jenkins explaining how after watching previous videos of the boys, he “wanted to create something [songs] that their fans will love as well as new fans and something the whole world will enjoy.”


The showcase continued with a “Dear Fans” video showing Jaejoong, Yuchun and Junsu writing thank you messages to their fans for their support after which they returned back on stage for a performance of “Be My Girl.”

The second half of the show continued with a compilation of clips of the members of JYJ working on their album “The Beginning,” with other producers commenting on their experience of working with the boys.

Then the trio sat down for a question and answer session, speaking about their preparations for the showcase as well as answering questions by fans.

Jaejoong said, “It was a hard time for me because I really wanted to be back on stage but now I am busy and I want to receive your love love and sing just for you. This album is just the beginning for us.”

The night went on with the group singing “Found You” from the soundtrack of KBS’ Yuchun starrer “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” as well as introducing two more new tracks “Ayyy Girl,” composed by famed rapper Kayne West, and the remix of “Empty.”

Up till mid-November, JYJ will be visiting several other countries including Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Taipei and the United States for their worldwide showcase.

Proceeds from their show will be donated to the worldwide non-governmental organization World Vision to help children around the world living in poverty.

Jaejoong, Yuchun and Junsu debuted in 2004 as part of a five-member boy band TVXQ but despite their phenomenal success in Asia, they ceased their activities as a group after becoming involved in a legal dispute with Korean agency SM Entertainment.
