Who’s the best idol actor/actress?



Big Bang’s TOP was rated to have the best current acting career as well as the one with the highest potential in his future as an actor amongst idols in the acting scene.

Three major broadcasting company directors (MBC, SBS, and KBS) along with 7 professionals were surveyed to rate the 11 idols that have been featured in dramas or movies in the past2 years. Idols were rated for their ‘acting career up to date’ and ‘potential for growth’; TOP was rated the highest of everyone, averaging 7.6 and 8.0 out of 10, respectively. Professionals praised that “[TOP's] sharp and bold image is appealing” (Ahn Hyuk Mo) and also advised that “it is time for [TOP] to broaden his acting career” (Huh Woong). TOP starred in the movie “‘71: Into the Fire”, winning the Best Male Rookie Actor award at the prestigious 47th Baeksang Arts Awards.

Following TOP, JYJ’s Park Yoochun placed 2nd scoring 7.0 and 7.7, and 2PM’s Ok Taecyeon placed 3rd scoring 6.6 and 7.6. Park Yoochun debuted in the acting scene through “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and followed through in MBC’s all-new-series “Miss Ripley“, whereas Ok Taecyeon debuted through “Cinderella’s Sister” and followed that up by starring as a lead role in “Dream High”.

Reviewers commented about Park Yoochun saying that “he needs to keep his dry smoothness” (Yoon Suk Jin) and that “he shows a potential in melodrama” (Lee Daeyoung). Concerning Ok Taecyeon, reviewers stated that he is “serious [about acting] and has that star quality, but because of his busy schedule he lacks the time to put that much effort into acting” (Lee Moon Won).

Amongst female idols, T-Ara’s Ham Eunjung who was also featured in “Dream High” received the highest score. Eunjung received a 6.3 in ‘acting career up to date’, placing 4th, but she placed 5th in ‘potential for growth’ with a score of 6.4. She was criticized, “her strong point is her everyday, next door type appearance, but she needs to gain experience” (Ahn Hyuk Mo).

T-Ara’s Jiyeon placed 7th in ‘acting career up to date’ but tied at 6th with CNBLUE’s Jung Yonghwa in ‘potential for growth’. Kara’s Goo Hara who is currently acting in SBS’s “City Hunter” scored the lowest in both categories. Professionals coldly criticized that “she needs to escape the shade of being an idol” (Yoon Suk Jin) and that “she is better fit as a singer” (Ahn Hyuk Mo).

Afterschool’s UEE placed 10th in ‘acting career up to date’ and tied with Goo Hara for 10th in ‘potential for growth’. She received criticisms that “she fits the current trend, but ultimately will fall behind” (Ko Young Tak) and that “she needs serious consideration in what else she could show other than her healthy appeal” (Huh Woong).

Kim Hyun Joong of SS501, who received big spotlights as one of the top upcoming Hallyu Stars through his roles in “Boys Before Flowers” and “Playful Kiss” tied for 5th in ‘acting career up to date’ with Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, but fell to 9th place in ‘potential for growth’. Kim Hyun Joong received harsh criticisms from the reviewers that “he needs more stable acting to receive lead roles” (Ko Young Tak) and “the fact he sells despite his downside was his strength, but even that is becoming blurry now” (Lee Moon Won).

Choi Siwon, who placed 5th in ‘acting career up to date’ and higher as 4th in ‘potential for growth’, received criticism that although his acting is somewhat stable, he is trapped in his roles within his handsome appearance.

There are mainly three routes in which idols enter their acting career.

First, the historical drama route: Fin.K.L’s Sung Yuri in “Thousand Years Love”, JYJ’s Park Yoochun in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, and Afterschool’s UEE as young Misil in “Queen Seon Duk”. Historical dramas carry a specific tone for lines, and the recent rise of fusion-historical dramas make it easy for rookie actors and actresses to pull lines off. Historical dramas, rather than trendy dramas, also give the impression that the idol actors/actresses are taking acting more seriously.

Second, the musician role route: Jung Yonghwa of CNBLUE and Lee Hong Ki of FT Island in “You’re Beautiful” along with Miss A Suzy in “Dream High” are typical cases. Idols can showcase their talent and act naturally. In MBC’s “Fall In Love” which will air its first episode on the 29th of June, Jung Yonghwa will play the lead role as a college student who is majoring guitar in music school.

Lastly, debuting outside of Korea using their international popularity. Kara’s Goo Hara debuted as an actress in “UraKara” in Japan and then recently kicked off her acting career in Korea in SBS’s “City Hunter”. Super Junior’s Donghae will debut in acting with a lead role in Taiwan through “Glamorous Challenge”, set to start sometime this year. MBC’s “Playful Kiss” in which Kim Hyun Joong was featured in had very low ratings in Korea, but it went on out to Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and many other countries to gross a total of approximately 4 million dollars.

JYJ's Kim Junsu Gives A Multi-Cultural Family A "House of Love" As A Present



Supported by popular group JYJ’s Kim Junsu, the “House of Love” project has once again bore fruit, presenting another family with a gift of happiness.

Kim Junsu has been silently working with the UN-established AdraKorea, and has been supporting the “House of Love” project which helps to improve the living conditions of the handicapped and other people in need.

On the afternoon of 3 June, at Taean-eup , Taean-gun, Chungcheongnam-do, a “moving in” ceremony was held for Ga Mo and family. A multi-cultural family, Ga Mo and family were living in an old house with poor living conditions for 40 years or more, but with Kim Junsu’s help, they now have a designated kitchen and washroom, as well as a study room and other amenities for easy living, an elegant and beautiful house made from wood.

At the “moving-in” ceremony, Ga Mo’s family members had tears in their eyes as they said, “I don’t know what to say, but we’re really thankful.” Ga Mo’s niece was smiling happily. “I really like my new study, I can now study hard in my own room, and draw as many drawings as I like.”

The construction of this “House of Love” was led by Jin Tae Gu, head of Taean-gun and Kim Dae Seung, Chairman of AdraKorea, with volunteers and villagers etc participating as well, who also came to congratulate them.

With Kim Junsu’s support, this is the fifth project for “House of Love.” Thanks to Kim Junsu’s help, the handicapped and elderly living alone in Chungcheongnam-do’s Danjin-gun and Taean-gun , as well as other people in poor living conditions, have found a new home. This is the first time a multi-cultural family has become a beneficiary (of this project.)

Kim Junsu started his charitable contributions to AdraKorea in 2008, and this organization has been using their funds to expand the “House of Love” project.

Kim Junsu’s charity activities are not limited to Korea, but also extend to other countries. In Cambodia, the “housing renovation and improvement project” is being implemented. As the “Xiah Junsu Village” had attracted a lot of attention, this project was expanded to other areas including Pusat, improving the unsafe living conditions for the impoverished children of Cambodia.

Kim Junsu’s charitable actions have given more warmth and kindness to the global village.

Yunho reveals TVXQ’s full Bora Bora nude beach story

Yunho’s long-awaited nude beach story has finally been revealed!

On the 7th, SBS’s ‘Strong Heart‘ invited back many of the past ‘Strong Heart’ champs from the last year and nine months to pick out the best ‘Talk King’ of the stars.

TVXQ’s Yunho started out the show with a placard that read, “Bora Bora nude scene.” He shared, “When TVXQ were rookies, we went to the Bora Bora islands to film our music video for ‘Hi Ya Ya Summer Days‘… The beach and scenery was so lovely that it looked like a scene from a movie… We played with the stingrays in the ocean and also partook in water polo. At that time, we were so full of youth and excitement that we put all our focus into the game and our swimsuit bottoms slowly came off.”
Posted ImagePosted Image


His confession surprised his fellow cast members on the set but he continued on, saying, “However, we were told that shooting for the video would begin immediately. The staff members were heading towards us on the beach and because there were female staff members present, none of us got out of the water. We were just watching them from inside the water. Because we were embarrassed to tell the staff the truth, we told them, ‘We’re in an important match right now. Can you just wait a little?’ to delay and buy some time. The problem was we couldn’t figure out which floating swimming briefs belonged to which member. In time, we eventually wore our own swimming briefs and ended this incident.”

However, their adventures in Bora Bora didn’t end there.

Yunho added this tidbit, “That isn’t the end of the story… Right outside the doors of our hotel, you can go swimming. Even the floors were made of glass so you could see the ocean underneath. The building was such that if you look up from the ocean, you can see into the hotel room.”



Yunho also shared the group’s little mischievous adventure.

He said, “Since we were at a resort, it was full of newlyweds. As it got dark, our curiosity arose. We all thought, ‘Let’s have a special experience this once,’ and went swimming in the ocean. We started peeking into other people’s room from the ocean and saw various couples kissing… We went from room to room as if it were a world tour. Let’s just say some of the things I saw that night, I’m taking it to my grave.”

Who knew that the members of TVXQ were such peeping toms?!

TVXQ wasn’t spared from a crazy schedule

Former 5-man group, TVXQ and their grueling schedule has caught attention. This follows SNSD’s alarmingly crazy schedule which was revealed last week.

SNSD’s written out day to day schedule recently surfaced to the online community. The schedule proved the hard work of current sky-rocketing popularity of SNSD, showing that they barely have a moment to rest from June 8th until the end of July. Some perspectives saw their busy schedule as not a sign of popularity, but more of a health concern.

However, the spotlight has shifted back a few years as the former 5-man TVXQ’s schedule recently appeared online as well.

The schedule plotted out TVXQ’s errands for a year, from July 2008 to July 2009, including but not limited to: magazine photo shoots, studio recording sessions, movie filming, DVD filming, cover photo shoots, and CF shoots.

With that said, netizens were shocked to see that the schedule had the 5 members entering and departing the country almost as often as normal people have mealtimes and pulling multiple gigs a day with barely a day to rest throughout the year. Netizens commented, “SNSD doesn’t even compare to this”, “Is this even possible?’, ‘That’s horrible, that must have been so painful’, ‘Celebrities have it hard’, and ‘They need avatars’, sharing both their feelings and concerns.

Kim Junsu Wins The Popularity Award For The Second Consecutive Year In 'The Musical Awards'



Kim Junsu beat stiff competition at ‘The Musical Awards’ and won the Popularity Award for the second consecutive year.

At the 5th The Musical Awards ceremony that was held at the Sejong Arts Center on June 7th, Kim Junsu won the Popularity Award for his role in the musical ‘Tears of Heaven’.

‘Tears of Heaven’ is a large-scale romantic production that depicts the love of one man that seems to supersede fate. Kim Junsu played the role of ‘Jun’, a Korean soldier in Vietnam who falls in love with a woman there and devotes his all to her, and was praised for his charismatic singing and acting.

As Kim Junsu was unable to attend the awards ceremony due to his performance in Japan for JYJ’s World Tour, a pre-recorded acceptance speech was aired.

Kim Junsu began by stating that the video of his acceptance speech would not be aired if he didn’t win the Popularity Award and continued to say, “I believe that this award, given to me for the second year running, is meaningful and priceless to me as it is one given by the masses,” and “I thank you all and I will continue to work hard to become an actor worthy of this award, so please continue to give me your love and attention.”

Netizens Are Baffled By TVXQ's 'Crazy Suicidal Schedule'



The schedule of TVXQ, when it was a five-member group, has become a hot topic once more.

Recently, TVXQ’s schedule was sorted and released in an online community, catching the attention of many netizens.

Spanning from July of 2008 to July of 2009, the schedule is deemed to have been ordered and sorted by a TVXQ fan and includes the phrase ‘This excludes some activities such as photoshoots for magazines, music recording sessions, filming for MVs, filming for DVDs, photoshoots for photobooks, and filming for CFs.‘

The schedule surprised many as it shows an endless repetition of flying in and out of the country with at least 3~4 scheduled activities per day and little to no rest.

Netizens who saw this stated, “It would be hard to follow if one was not healthy”, “It’s a suicidal schedule”. “This must be the kind of road people have to walk on to be the best” and “They must not even have the time to eat. That’s sad.”

JYJ’s Yoochun treats the staff of “Miss Ripley” to an expensive dinner

The generosity of Yoochun’s wallet was revealed recently, after it was discovered that he bought the staff of his new drama, “Miss Ripley“, an expensive dinner as a gesture of his gratitude.

The JYJ member reportedly made reservations at a sushi restaurant in Jeju Island during the staff’s stay there, and treated everyone to sawedged perch, which is considered to be the best dish on the menu. The staff had stayed up all night filming for the drama, so the meal was said to have been a much-needed energy boost.

Yoochun commented, “I always felt apologetic towards the staff with us. We’re a dream team aiming to create the best drama possible, so I hope we continue to support each other.”

JYJ Charity Concert (Fan Account)



Yesterday’s Kokugikan.
It was sooooooooo good~♪
The acoustic effects were better than expected.
I went there to watch the Sumo (Japanese wrestling) a few times before, but it was my first time that I heard music there.
A few years ago, Kokugikan was totally refurbished, so that you can hear the sumo referee’s voices clearly.
That time, the acoustic effects and stage lighting were all changed, it’s really good now.

Everyone, do you know that the Sumo ring is newly made before each tournament?
(T/N: there are 6 major sumo tournaments every year, each lasting 15 days, and 3 of the tournaments are held in Kokugikan.)
So that is the reason of such stage settings.
…oh, those who weren’t there could not understand me by this explanation.
(Please go on to the youtube tour)

It was usual that they were performing in Arena or Dome…
This time, I really think that it was a wonderful experience for both the three members and us fans.
Kokugikan has its special “PRESENCE”. You could not experience the “TENSE” in a large venue as Arenas and Domes.
The audience can concentrate to the stage, “A SENSE OF UNITY”.
It was a luxurious space where we can feel THEIR TEMPERATURE.
(T/N: The Saitama holds up to 37000, Tokyo dome holds up to 50000. Kokugin holds up to 11000)

The stage was so NEAR!
The venue was filled with 10 thousand, but I couldn’t believe that there were so many (maybe not?)
There were standees on the 1st floor!
Near the exit, there were people who should be in the entertainment world (obviously, dancers)
The fans sitting nearby were whispering “Doesn’t her face look familiar?” and such.
I could see the dancer-looking guy, but couldn’t really confirm, so I just ignored them.


I went to the evening event. I wondered if they should have been tired from the afternoon event, but, they were really professionals!
Jaejoong was a little bit wheezy, but…Jaejoong was doing most of the talking.
When it becomes to singing, they were terrific, scoring goals!
There were few places where Jaejoong and Junsu couldn’t hit the high notes.
But! We all go so excited when Yoochun shouted just a little bit!

I long for Yoochun’s “ZA・I・DA・M・A~”
(T/N: It was always Yoochun who shouted “Saitama” or other names of the cities during “Somebody To Love”. The writer for this fan account is a fan of Yoochun.)
What surprised me the most this time was!
Jaejoong ’s dancing performace became dynamic!
And!!!!
Yoochun was able to follow their dancing ~ giving me tears.
Junsu’s dance was as always, so cool & perfect even to his fingertips and joints, uncomparable with the other two members! Oh, you shouldn’t compare them.
But, but, but, Jaejoong’ s and Yoochun’s songs and dances were really good, too!
It was like “What was their performance in the Dome?” from the start.
(T/N: the writer should be referring to the Thanksgiving Dome event on June 2010.)
Was it because it was Dirctor Kim’s specs?
I think that it was a stage that showed all of their charms.
The dance was urbanized (LOL) and matured!!! …compared to that of the first stage of Tohoshinki.

The place where we sat was Junsu’s special dance spot.
Junsu fans should immediately be knocked out.
For their vocals, it was perfect, no worries or uneasiness.
“Fallen Leaves” was the best! They are really good singers.
The deepest part of my nose became……
They can sing gently & softly, and they also can sing up tempo songs, oh, they have perfect skills as singers.
I did not mean to compare…but my ears automatically compares with the vocals of…

After they were divided to 3 and 2, I was thinking “Mottainai (T/N: what a waste), but if you think that they are collaborating within one group, I can take it with ease.
I prefer to think that this performance was established on its own.. that is acceptable for me.
At the time of the dome event, the 3 members were on their honeymoon JJY was newly made, so I tried to understand that their stage was the extra innings of Tohoshinki.
But this time it was different!
They were “JYJ”!
They had the back dancers from the time they were Tohoshinki…but,
OH! YES!!!!
Those dancers LOL
At the start of the world tour, I didn’t like those dynamite bodies of the lady dancers~~
But, when I actually saw them with my own eyes, I thought that the stage effects were really good!
It doesn’t seem childish, nor boyish, it isn’t common.
It is totally different from that “ALL SMP” + manly & sexy style of HoMin’s come-back in Korea.
This time, the dance was sophisticated and smart LOL

It was an event after a lot of fuss, but consequently, the outcome was successful thanks to all those interferences.
If they were to use the Saitama Arena as initially planned, the performance may have been common and ordinary.
Of course, there was a big difference, they were able to sing in Japan again!
Everyone should know this, even if I do not write in detail.
The Kokugikan was the right choice!
I want them to perform again in Kokugikan!!
Thank you for all those interferences, that management company.
… but, what will become of their future? I’m a little bit uneasy…

Oh, they seem to have said in the afternoon event “We are sorry that we couldn’t sing in Japanese.”
It’s OK, you can sing to us the next time.
All the three members can write the lyrics and compose, they have such talents.
It should be easy for them to write in Japanese than in English, since they understand the language, they can use the words and be emotional.
You can make a Japanese album on your own!
Then, you can speak and sing in Korean, English, and Japanese! The Japanese people don’t care about the record labels.
We won't say anything uncool!
We will approve your works as fine ones.
We’re waiting for you!


I have heard many times from before that big artists who have experienced the Arena or dome were saying that the festivals should be held at a big box (stage), with all the excitement!
But, if that situation becomes common…
The artist cannot (will not) hear the voices of the audience, and be intoxicated on his own…
When the artist is puffed up like that, it will be troublesome!
Do you know the place where the big artists (who experienced the Arena and Dome) want to perform?
They want to perform in a live music club or Zepp class (T/N: holds up to 2700), where they could be near the audience!!
In those clear acoustic venues, the echo sound is limited so you cannot deceive the audience, and your performance will always be checked.
It is said that the size of the venue where both the musician and audience can feel each others’ breathing and temperature is up to 10 thousand.
In those places, you can feel the music ecstasy “Oh, this is the live!!!”
In this meaning, this event was truly a live concert.

So~!
In Kyocera dome, I heard that Chagmin-kun was the advertising manager LOL.
Please do get off that eco-car.
(T/N: the writer is making fun of the lyrics of “I Think U Know”.)
This lyrics of this song is a joke all around the world now.
Please make a good “made in Japan” album.
The back dancers and back chorus can help you, but, you yourself have to carry on the main vocals.
If the two sing the songs which really fit their vocals, it will be of high quality… I believe…
The Japanese staffs, please take care of them!
Would they go for the year end rewards with the new album?
A farce impact (T/N: these two words have the same sound “shougeki” in Japanese) comeback, and aim for the Kouhaku?
Avex, we know you are just the distributor now, but, staffs~~~~~~~~please do your best!!!!!!!

My regrets..
I wasn’t able to be possessed to that left ? right?...right hand entangling Yoochun LOL
It was Asian specs and Dirctor Kim’s works. And there was not enough time for the solo songs…
If this was the North American world tour, the director was Mr. Jeri Slaugther…
I could have been possessed with…

JYJ Park Yoochun's Cameo Appearance In MBC's Drama "The Greatest Love"? "A Pleasant Surprise"



Park Yoochun made a surprise appearance in “The Greatest Love,” drawing the attention of the viewers.

On the episode of “The Greatest Love” that was aired on 8 June, while Goo Ae Jung and Yoon Pil Joo were having a meal, the television screen behind them showed a familiar image. It was Park Yoochun, who is currently playing Song Yoo Hyun in the MBC drama “Miss Ripley.”

It was later discovered that the shooting for “The Greatest Love” had happened to be during the airing of “Miss Ripley,” and therefore became an indirect form of promotion for the broadcaster’s drama.

Netizens said, “It’s a pleasant surpise,” “What a good way to promote your own drama,” etc, in response to Yoochun’ s surprise appearance.

JYJ's Park Yoochun Shows His Heartfelt Emotional Scene



Actor Park Yoochun shows his heartfelt emotional scene, causing the filming location's atmosphere to be solemn.

In MBC's popular drama 'Miss Ripley,' Park Yoochun plays the role of second-generation chaebol Song Yoo Hyun. On the 13th of this month when episode 5 will be broadcasted, the earnestly acting Park Yoochun will pay a visit to his birth mother's grave, and his manner of holding in his tears will stimulate the viewers' tear glands. Actress Yang Mi-Kyeong plays the role of Park Yoochun's birth mother. Although Song Yoo Hyun currently lives with his stepmother in a harmonious family, he still retains that deeply sincere heart for 'his birth mother who left the world when he was a child.' Song Yoo Hyun holds a bouquet of flowers when he goes to his birth mother's grave, and recalls the happy times he spent with his mother when he was a child.

A staff member at the filming location stated, "Park Yoochun's crying scene was performed very sincerely, and caused the filming atmosphere to become solemn." He rated his acting skills in crying rather highly.

According to this staff member's statement, Park Yoochun first immersed himself in emotion before he officially started to film. His "NG-less" crying scene received the director's "okay" gesture.

During the encore, Jaejoong requested the fans for a wave. We started the wave with their signal. But the wave did not stop, since the fans were all in high spirits.

JaeSu tried to stop the wave by various actions, but, in vain. The lights of the venue was turned down, and at last the wave stopped.

The wave went all around the venue for 6 times. The fans were all doing their best!

Hip Hop Group Cream Team's U-Know Yunho Taecyeon Diss Controversy "Puppets Who Spit Out Rap"

Hip hop group Cream Team’s new single ‘Yes, You’ has been swept up in controversy for dissing U-Know Yunho and Taecyeon.

Releasing their third single ‘Yes, You’ on the 7th, Cream Team’s Mazorkey and Amotai quickly became hot topics for using slang and swear words as they directed their lyrics at idols singers saying, ‘Doll-like kids are taking their clothes off, some are ripping them off. They are the idols of kids, this isn’t a diss but saying that is awesome isn’t cool at all.” They also became the topics of a heated debate when netizens accused them of directly attacking and dissing TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho and 2PM’s Taecyeon.



In hip hop, dissing is common and used in a variety of ways to attack people rappers don’t like through songs or actions to portray their raw emotions. Using implications, rappers leave evidence for listeners to guess who the subject of their diss is.

Netizens who heard ‘Yes, You’ say that the lyrics ‘Doll-like kids are taking their clothes off, some are ripping them off. All they have to show are their chocolate abs that will melt off soon’ are garnered at Taecyeon, who is called ‘Ripping Taecyeon’ for his shirt-ripping performances while the lyrics, ‘The white page and dry pen that reflect your heart, is that the truth of life that you speak of?’ sound similar to the rap that U-Know Yunho performed on KBS 2TV’s ‘Happy Together season 3′, implying that Cream Team are mocking U-Know Yunho.

Furthermore, Daum’s Music Corner’s introduction to the single album is pouring oil on the flame. The introduction reads, “Cream Team’s Mazorkey and Amotai are pulling the bowstring taut and their targets are 2PM’s Ok Taecyeon of JYP and TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho of TVXQ,” and “A sharp admonition against those who act like the main characters of hip hop with their extravagant performances and so-so looks.” By blatantly stating U-Know Yunho and Taecyeon’s name, Daum solidified the fact that ‘Yes, You’ is a diss song aimed at the two singers.

As the controversy grew, Cream Team’s Amotai left a tweet on his Twitter account that read, “There isn’t a single part in my lyrics that directly singles out Ok Taecyeon or U-Know Yunho. If you feel guilty about that, call me out for it,” and “Unlike my lyrics, Mazorkey’s definitely has parts relating to Ok Taecyeon and U-Know Yunho.” By indirectly admitting that ‘Yes, You’ is a diss song aimed at the two singers, Amotai has only caused the controversy to rage further.

Interview With JYJ Dancer Telisu



Before our interview, I was sitting at Tom n Toms in Koreatown, Los Angeles, staring down at my notes and scribbling down questions, when I felt everybody's attention directed toward the entrance. I glanced up to see Telisha Shaw walk through the door. She introduced herself to me as Telisu. Despite looking super-star glam and fabulous, she was so friendly and personable that I immediately felt comfortable calling by Telisu, the nickname given to her by her Asian fans that she has happily adopted for her newfound K-pop persona. With a sweet and bubbly personality, she turned our interview into a two-way conversation as we chatted in circles on a number of irrelevant topics.

Aside from dancing alongside top American artists such as Janet Jackson and Christina Aguilera, Telisu has been featured in Hollywood films such as Step Up 2 and television series such as Glee. During our interview, she took me by surprise and revealed her plans to debut as a K-pop singer. Later on, at the San Jose stop of the JYJ tour, we even met up again, and when she dropped her debut single "Our Secret" onto YouTube, she just couldn't stop squealing and checking her Twitter.

Telisu tells Asia Pacific Arts stories about her "sexy (or not-so-sexy) times with JYJ," why "boom!" is her catch phrase, and how she just couldn't keep "Our Secret" to herself any longer.

Asia Pacific Arts: How did you begin your career as a backup dancer?

Telisu: I'm originally from Memphis, Tennessee and I just came over to LA to audition for an agency. I made it, and then I was sent out for jobs. I have always wanted to dance since I was a kid, so I knew this was what I wanted and just went for it. It's been a pretty seamless process.

APA: How did you begin working with JYJ?

T: I got a call back in October 2010 from a producer who I've worked with before, and he said he was working with this enormous K-pop group. He asked if I had any suggestions for choreographers, and I told him about one of my dear friends, Jeri Slaughter. He got in contact with Jeri and well, long story short, they flew here and interviewed him; later, he got hired and brought me on as one of the dancers. And now here we are. [laughs]

APA: What expectations did you have before working with JYJ?

T: I feel like they have this reputation for having this intense work ethic that you don't really find in a lot of artists. That definitely was proven right when we went into rehearsals with JYJ. I think a lot of times artists feel that their job stops after the recording process. But, as I've come to find out with artists such as JYJ, they understand that the completion of the project includes going to rehearsals and making sure that the music, videos and stage performances are justified. You have to come with 110%, otherwise you're shortchanging yourself for not letting your project be the best it can be.

I looked them up beforehand so I knew what I was getting into, but what went way beyond my expectations was just how nice and amazing they are as people. I didn't think we were going to gel so well because of the language barrier, but that didn't stop us from communicating and starting this amazing little family.

APA: Is that relationship different from other artists you've worked with?

T: One of the things about being a dancer is that you get to be in the close circle with the artist, especially because you're the only one that gets to share the stage with them. The band and backup singers are set way behind them, but you're really sharing that energy and space with them. It's like everybody's childhood dream is coming alive, and it's so precious to be together with 15-20 people with the same thoughts. So, sharing that ground with people who you've struggled day in and day out with, throughout the whole process, forms a special bond, especially when you're making art with a lot of heart. I'd have to say our energy is definitely playful. [laughs] Since you get to come into their world and meet their family and friends, you grow this friendship where you just want to protect them. They are precious guys, and I see myself being in contact again even after the job stops.

APA: How would you describe their personalities?

T: Hmm… JJ [Jaejoong] is really quiet, but when he hits the stage he's a completely different person. We always laugh and make fun of him about that. When he comes into rehearsals, he [keeps] to himself in a corner. [laughs] Micky is -- I don't know how to describe him in one word, but he's definitely good with the girls. He's not afraid to talk to them. One time, we [the female dancers] lied and told him we were all lesbians. He was taken aback, but he was cool with it: "Oh… cool… they're lesbians." [laughs] And Jun [Junsu] is definitely the jokester. He is a super sweet-hearted guy. It's just so amazing to get to work at such an intimate level with these boys. I just don't see my life without them anymore.

APA: What was the difference between working on their 2010 showcase versus their 2011 concert? At the 2011 press conference, Jaejoong promised "more sexiness."

T: He did? [laughs] Oh, that's 'cause they met all the girls [back up dancers] right before the press conference. I told them, "Wait until you see these girls…" So, they walk in, and their faces were like "Oh yeahhh." They didn't say anything, but their eyes lit up, like "This is going to be nice." [laughs] I think they upped the sexiness because here in the US, it's part of the artistry. They're grown men, and I think they are trying to go with what the songs evoke. Like, you wouldn't do "Mission" choreography for "I Love You." The choreography represents the lyrics, and I think they're trying to show a more mature side to them here.

APA: I heard there was quite some talk about the crotch grab move from the first two stops of the tour. Will more of the choreography be edited in the Asian legs?

T: Yeah, that didn't happen in LA. It was edited out because I don't think it was met with the reception that was initially expected. [laughs] But in terms of the choreography, if it calls for it, it'll happen. Jeri Slaughter is really good at showing that through his choreography. Just because of the difference in culture, I think it'll be edited down some more.

APA: Do you have any favorite choreography?

T: I like doing the sexy choreography. Don't get me wrong, but I just love mashing it out with the boys. I love choreography like "Be the One" and "Mission" ‘cause you get to hit it hard. I love "Ayy Girl" ‘cause it's smooth and suave. But, I do love performing "Pierrot" with all the girls too. In "Get Out," I get to dance with all three of them, so that's fun. Underneath the stage, JJ and I have to be in a full embrace before the lift goes up, and before we always go: "Fighting!" Then, he rubs my face, and he even pulled my hair once when I walked away. I didn't even notice until I saw a fancam. "Look at that, JJ quiet and sexy type." [laughs] And Mick -- the facials I get from Mick. He just has this face he does when you're dancing with him or he's dancing with the other girls… I'm just like "Don't laugh!" You know he's into it, but you just want to crack up. Then, you get to Jun and you're like "Awww, Jun." He was on his knees, and I had no idea how I was supposed to work with that or how I should dance with him. I was like "Oh my god, your parents are in the audience. Umm… never mind I'm just going to leave now." [laughs]

APA: Any funny incidents on the U.S. tour that made it memorable?

T: When we were rehearsing for "Get Out," our lift broke. So, Micky's lift goes up first and then ours [her and JJ's lift], but only our heads were sticking out. I was like "Oh my god, I'm not going to make my mark. I'm supposed to get to Micky." The lift goes up a little more to our waists and I just had to climb my way out. By the time I got to Micky, he was trying to be funny like:"You are so late. Don't even worry about it. I'm over it." I was like, "No fair! I tried to get over to you!" He turned away and was like, "No, just go. You go dance on over to Junsu now." Then, we just cracked up laughing.

APA: It seems as though your interest in the Korean culture has grown. Has JYJ played a role in influencing that change?

T: For sure. Before I went to Seoul, I was always drawn to Korean culture. It didn't click for me until I was super geeked to get on the plane. I was like "Boom! I'm going to my beauty motherland!" Everybody who knows me knows that I always go to the Korean spas and am obsessed with the beauty supplies. Even before I moved here [Koreatown], I was always over here. When I got off the plane in Seoul, it was like love at first sight. But when I had to leave, I was so upset. I took this photo before I got on the plane and saw just how miserable I looked. [laughs]

I told my parents, "I'm moving over here [to Korea]" and they said, "Have you lost your mind?" I was like "I think so. I am just completely into it." So, that started the process of me learning the language. I got into K-dramas, and it blew up. I got into K-dramas because of Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and I was working with Micky at the time, so I was like "I gotta check it out." Then, I got hooked, seriously hooked. Like, I can't tell you when was the last time I watched an American show besides reality TV. [laughs]

Truthfully, I didn't know much about K-pop, aside from the few friends that worked with some artists, but yes, working with JYJ has sparked this complete deeper affection I have for Korean culture. And yes, it has influenced me to move there, and [now] living there part time and in LA. And this may sound silly, but I love penmanship. I always write in all uppercase or lowercase just ‘cause I like symmetry. Hangul characters are a blessing to me. "Oh my god, they've got squares and circles and lines, whoa!" [laughs] I just love it. I started taking classes at KCC, I'm trying to learn the language through that route, and I watch K-dramas to reinforce learning the language. It's one of those things you have to do every day. If you don't use it, you lose it. I asked my teacher, "How am I going to learn this language better?" and she was like "You need a Korean boyfriend." I was like "Okay, I'll look into that. "

By the way, you know that song "Black and Yellow?" My friends say it's my theme song ‘cause I'm just so in love with the Korean culture, fashion, music, dramas, everything! When I'm online, I know which sites to go to if I want to watch things or go shopping. So, the song "Black and Yellow" comes out and they're like this is totally you. [laughs]

APA: Have JYJ helped you out with your Korean?

T: Yeah, during rehearsals, we practice and they correct me. There are certain words I try to say, and they tell me what's right, but mostly they just end up laughing at me and think I'm crazy. [laughs] During the time we were apart, we used to go back and forth on Twitter, and when JJ and Jun wrote to me in English for the first time, I was so happy! We really try to help each other out. [laughs]

APA: What sparked your music career?

T: Through me dancing with JYJ, this whole new amazing dream came about, and I get to explore my music career! While I was on tour, I got an e-mail via my manager here in LA from a production company in Tokyo that wanted me to come and perform my music. I just felt unprepared, and I didn't want to go into it blindly, so I turned it down. But, I told myself that was the last time that'll ever happen to me. I told JYJ's managers about it and they were being so amazing, trying to help me get this off the ground. I was blessed enough to record with the producers of "Ayy Girl." Actually, when I met the producers, I had no idea they worked with JYJ. So when we both found out we had been working with them, they were like "We worked with them, so we have to work with you." It was like fate!

I was really excited about how this is all coming together. Hence, the name change on Twitter. So when it first started, I was basically getting these tweets about people calling me Telisu, and it just caught on and turned into this whole thing. It was given to me by the Asian culture like a nickname, and I think it's me. I just love it. Originally, it did come from the shipping of Jun[su] and I, but the name flowed and popped, and it was from my Korean loves! It's my homage to the fans. To me, it's a sign of being embraced by the Asian culture, because the Asian market is sparking this music career for me. Jun calls me Telisu too, and so does the rest of the JYJ family. If your family calls you Telisu, that's what you are. [laughs]

I'm so excited for everybody to hear the music I've been working on [squeals] I am grinning from ear to ear! My cheeks hurt! [laughs]

APA: What type of music are you working on?

T: I'd definitely say my music to going to be more K-pop. There's going to be English and Hangul on all of my singles. I'm like tearing up. I am so appreciative of this. I started recording with Interscope artist, FreeSol, and they produced a couple of singles for me. When C-Jes heard about it, when they came back to LA, that sparked everything else. Basically, they're helping me get started here in the U.S., but mostly I want to be an artist in Asia and Europe.

APA: As a non-Korean, how do you feel about making your debut there? How are you preparing for it?

T: I've been studying the language and going to Korea in my free time. I'm really trying to soak in the culture in any way I can, through music, dramas, everything. We know that a lot of things that don't happen or go well because of fear. I always felt embraced whether in LA or Seoul. They are happy that you even want to know about their culture, so they want to share it with you. I definitely think there's room in the market for other races. When you go to Seoul, they play everybody else over there, so why couldn't a non-Asian break into the Korean market? I'm going to be the first black K-pop artist. [laughs] I'm going to make it happen. I would encourage anyone not to let anything like race or ethnicity stop you from doing what you love. That should not be the reason why you let all your hard work, prayers and dream fall to fear. That's a great road to regret.

APA: Can you tell me more about your debut single, "Our Secret?"

T: I'd say it's very Janet Jackson and T-Boz from TLC inspired. It's an upbeat song that's kind of like a love letter about taboo love. Can you, regardless of race and where someone comes from, love somebody and not be judged? If you're seen as somebody who isn't on the same level as [a boy], could you still like him and have it be okay? Liking somebody is already hard enough, but then having to worry about these obstacles on top of it -- the song is about a taboo relationship and how it would be amazing for it to be accepted. And you're both afraid of what it'll do to the purity, that amazing little energy that you guys have with each other.

For the lyrics, I tried to put myself in that situation and figure out how I would feel and what I would do if it was me. There were a couple of times I got comments on Twitter saying, "You're just a dancer." Yes, that's a part of me, but they were implying that I wasn't good enough or I'm undeserving. I thought, "Well, what if he saw me as somebody amazing and great? Just as how everybody else finds something to love in him, what if he found something like that in me?" This song is really a layered cake. [laughs]

APA: I know there has been a strong reaction to your song as JYJ fans seem to be concerned about what your lyrics may imply. How do you feel in regards to that?

T: Before the release, I let a few people hear it and I've gotten a good reaction! I was fearful about how it was going to come across, because I definitely don't want to come off like I'm disrespecting anybody, look unappreciative or look like I'm unfocused on my job with JYJ as a dancer. I've shown it to all the boys and C-Jes, and they were pleasantly surprised by my music. Sometimes you need that reassurance to know that you're going down the right path. With the Twitter name change and my new blonde hair, this is going to be me from now on! My fans have been completely amazing, and I'm just so blessed they're in my life. Even when I doubt or question myself, they always reassure me saying, "You're doing it. Please do it!" So, full speed ahead! That's why I try to have a personal relationship with my fans on Twitter, because I want them to know they are a part of this and I'm appreciative that they are a part of my life. They helped influence my dream and me taking this to another level.

APA: Do you plan on collaborating with JYJ?

T: Oh, wow! I have never thought of that. That would be the icing on the cake, the cherry on top. [laughs] I would love to do that, especially to pay homage to where this all started. If it weren't for them, this would not have happened for me. I would love to do that to show my appreciation and gratefulness to them. Oh god, just thinking about it gives me chills. Who would turn even turn that down? [laughs]

APA: How has your career progressed so far?

T: Well, I just had a fanmeet, and I was so worried nobody would come! It was great to see some of my fans, and I incorporated them into my EPK. I'll be dropping teasers by the time I come back from the JYJ Asian leg. I'm super excited! It feels like the earth just keeps giving.

APA: What concept or theme are you aiming to express through your debut release?

T: I guess you could say it's based off of me being Telisu and the different facets of my personality. There's a very bubbly side of me that's completely my personality, and there's the mix of my fashion sense. When I tell people I do the K-pop look, they say, "Really? You look like you're in a rock band." [laughs] I think it's the mixture of the two worlds. I'm always like that. There's something always off about it that I like, so I can play on any part of my character or personality that I want. A little rock chic with a little sprinkle of posh. Definitely nothing that is too bourgeois that it's stuffy. Definitely playful for sure. I love fashion, and I love the idea that I don't have to look like a certain person the entire time.

APA: Are there any current artists in the Korean music industry that are influencing the music you want to make?

T: Top three besides JYJ -- I mean how many times could I mention how amazing they are? -- I love Wonder Girls, 2NE1 and Big Bang. Out of my musical influences, those would definitely be the top three. As far as showmanship, style, they're gorgeous! [laughs] I've been looking into them and researching them and paying close attention to what they do, their management, just everything.

APA: As a dancer, are you planning to choreograph your own work to your songs?

T: Oh, if only! I don't think I'd be able to handle doing that, along with making and singing my songs. [laughs] I want to focus on developing myself as a singer, and I love that I can bring in other people with their talent and expertise and showcase that in my work. Jeri Slaughter is on my artistic directing team, and I like it when choreographers let me be a girl but also let me dance. Sometimes you only get to do one or the other, and I love the fact that his style lets you do both. Girly and hood, you'll get it all from him -- which is why I'm starting my career off with him at the helm of my choreography. I'm open to other ones too though. I'm sure there are plenty others that I don't know yet.

Oh my god, I also love Rino Nakasone. When she did the "Keep Your Head Down" choreography, I just lost it. I was like "How are these two boys going to mash out this choreography? How is this going to work?" But when she put one in the front mashing out and the other like his shadow, I was amazed. I just freaked out. She is so sick. I'd love to work with Peanut and Gil Duldalao too. If I could have a choreographing team, they would be it.

APA: So it seems like "boom" is your catch phrase. What does it mean?

T: Boom, it's just how I feel inside! I put it out there, and I get energy back. It's my pop at the end of the sentence. It's contagious ‘cause people are hitting me back now with a boom! And I just love it. You've got to enunciate and elongate the o-s. It means: "That makes so much sense." Confirmation or agreement. It means, "Let's go! Let's get it started!" I guess it means a lot of things, but it definitely represents me. [laughs]

Hayato’s Blog Updates



June 12, 2011
The Final Episode of the Charity Concert


I wrote that this will be the final episode on my own (lol)

I’m dropping an advance hint…because I do not have many stories left for you..


Before that,
Many seem to have the question that…who is Hayato?
C-JeS?・・・Zak・・・which?
There was even a rumor that he is a fictitious character.



Let’s proceed by elimination.

I am not a staff of C-JeS.

I am not a staff of Zak, either.

To tell the truth, I myself cannot explain in one word who Hayato is…who am I?...what is my position?..what rights do I have to be involved?...Isn’t he the marketing planner for 3hree VoicesⅡ?・・・To be begin with, this “Marketing Planner” does not represent the correct position of me・・・




I was caught in.




Yes, that is the most correct word.

I already knew JYJ’s circumstances.
During the incident last year, I was just with the person concerned.
We were under presence conditions as if it was a movie.
I was in the center of the truth when everyone was flustered by twisted reports and vicious rumors.

But, it is difficult to convey the truth.
The truth should seem to be a lie, too.

So, we decided to make the “3hree Voices Ⅱ”.
Let everyone know their true appearance without any dramatization.
Convey their thoughts they are feeling towards their fans.
And, I joined the team as the planning supervisor.

The terms to join was, without pay… that was my determination.
As you all know, I have other regular business, so I wanted to join them light-heartedly, without having interests.

Yes, the start was like this.. but, before I knew, the situation became….


And, who dragged me in?... let me keep that a secret.
That person connects me to JYJ.

Mr. mysterious X



I am sorry for the long introduction.
The main subject.


June 7.
The afternoon event was just about to start.

I reported to you that they were earnestly doing the rehearsal on the day before.
They were even doing the rehearsal on the date (of the concert) until the last minute.
That was the reason that the starting time was a little bit delayed.

The audience was expecting JYJ to appear every moment.
But will they really appear?...some should have felt anxiety.

All of a sudden, the lights of the venue were turned down.

At once, the excitement was on full power.
Everyone stood up all at once.
The penlights were swaying.

When the three members were introduced on the screen, the audience was in excitement.



That time, the Mr. X was with the 3 members.
He shook their hands one by one,

He wanted to say “take care”.

That time,
They seemed uncommon.
They were overly serious by extreme tension.

What happened?

He said that he never saw them like that.


Junsu was saying during the MC.
“I was nervous after a long time… but it was a pleasant feeling.”


But, they didn’t show their tense even a tiny bit.
Their songs and dances were perfect.

The unity with the audience was wonderful.

On the other hand,
In the evening event, they seemed to be more relaxed, and you could hear their funny talks.


Ryogoku Kokugikan.
As you know, the sumo tournament is held here.

Buy the way, did they take a show?
Or, take a bath?

They took a bath which is normally used for the sumo wrestlers.
(T/N: the sumo wrestlers are very big in size, average is, 185cm & 156kg)

According to the interpreter for the staffs, K-san,
The 3 members happily took the bath together.

Their laughs and speaking voices could be heard, and they were very cute, a heartwarming scene…

It was a good thing that their tension was released, and that they became the regular themselves.

The 3 members who had undergone that upheaval day, went back to Korea from Narita airport the next morning.

I think that the charity concert was just yesterday,
But they are now having a concert in Pusan.


I wish that they will take care of their health, as everyone is saying.

But later on, due to a natural physiological reaction, I thanked them with a very weird voice in the end,” this set the whole audience laughing. (T/N: He burped in the midst of saying thanks. lol)

After which, Kim Hyun Joong revealed, “During the filming of street program, School of Rock, (I) had wanted to go to the toilet but did not make it thus I endured it. Right next to the lecture hall was the toilet and have decided to run to the toilet right before the female high school students came in. But behind me there were some students following. I thought it would be embarrassing if I was to dash to the toilet therefore I made a turn into the waiting room of the lecture room instead. Later at the backstage, I found a very dusty and old plastic bottle and used a scissor to cut it open…… and I told myself to keep this story to myself till I die. But I threw the plastic bottle right out of the window,” leaving everyone roaring with laughter.

'Miss Ripley' Park Yoochun and Lee Da Hae transformed into handsome bike couple



On the MBC TV Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Miss Ripley’ episode 6 broadcasted on the 14th, Park Yoochun and Lee Da Hae transformed into bike couple, both dating while wearing handsome black bike outfits and helmets.

In ‘Miss Ripley’, Park Yoochun who acted as Mondo Resort Group’s successor, has been portraying his gentle image, but through this bike scene, it was the first time his wild and handsome manly charisma was exhibited. Lee Da Hae who acted as Jang Miri, changed her usual feminine style and came out in handsome bike outfit, play role as a bike couple with Park Yoochun.

This filming was done late last month in Itaewon and Banpo bridge and the bike they rode on is worth about 40 million won. According to staff, the two of them anticipated this bike scene a lot and smiled like a child during the filming. Especially for Park Yoochun who has a penchant for driving, he was delighted just by the ability to ride a bike.

The production company has expressed that Park Yoochun will be showing his manly charisma gradually in the drama and this riding scene hinted the progression of the storyline to a new level, thus hoping the audience to wait for it.

‘Miss Ripley’ is a melodrama that tells the story of a woman who unwillingly said a lie and this led to more lies, resulting in a danger that she would lose all the she had.

"The Official Notice Regulating JYJ's Activities Violates The Fair Trade Laws"



Congresswoman Park Seon Suk of the National Party has called for the Fair Trade Commission’s active role in investigating unjust trade acts in the entertainment industry.

At a National Assembly conference held on the 13th, Congresswoman Park brought up the topic of the Korean Federation of Pop Culture and Arts Industry(KFPCAI)’s official notice that asked entertainment agencies and broadcasting companies to refrain from providing JYJ with activities. She called for an investigation to determine whether or not this official notice violates the Fair Trade Laws.

JYJ is a three-member group of Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu, all from TVXQ.

Congresswoman Park Seon Suk stated, “There have only been two instances in which the FTC called for an order of rectification in the entertainment industry in the last five years,” and “Both instances involved the domestic entertainment agency SM Entertainment.“

She continued to state, “It is not that I doubt the competitive edge that the Hallyu Wave has as it has even spread past Asia into Europe, but I believe that if the industry continues to be made of certain entertainment agencies using their superior position to take dominance over others, then the it will not last long.“

Congresswoman Park also stressed, “I ask that (the strengthening of the binding power of) the FTC’s model exclusive contract for the entertainment industry be examined as a legislation.” To this, Chairman Kim Dong Su stated, “It will be done.”

Idol Fans, "The War To Find Fanclub Colors"



-Groups keep debuting but colors are limited
-Fan fights lead to alternatives like glow-sticks

Idol groups keeps debuting but it isn’t easy choosing a color for each of them. The photo is of Taiwanese H.O.T. fans who visited Korea in 2001 as they cheer H.O.T. on with their white balloons.

“B2ST doesn’t have a balloon color.” CEO Hong Seung Sung of Cube Entertainment is in a quandary over B2ST’s balloon color. Each idol group usually has a balloon color that symbolizes who they are, but with the increasing number of idol groups against a limited number of colors, it’s become very difficult to choose a color.

Balloons are the representative item that fans use to cheer for idol groups. At concert venues, fans flock together with balloons the color of ‘Our Oppa’ in their hands, ready to cheer. On stage, just looking at the color of balloons helps singers determine how many fans of each singer comes to the performances.

Using balloons to cheer began with first generation idol group H.O.T.’s white balloons. More and more idol groups began to set an official color for their fanclubs with GOD using sky-blue and Shinhwa choosing orange. While first generation idols used primary colors, second generation idols are mixing a variety of colors so that they do not overlap with each other.

According to SM Entertainment, TVXQ’s color is ‘pearl read’(a red that sparkles), SHINee’s color is ‘pearl aqua green’(a slightly bright green that sparkles) and Super Junior’s color is ‘pearl sapphire blue’(a blue that sparkles). Though fanclubs are usually who decide their balloon colors, entertainment agencies will sometimes step forward to make the decision.

Balloons also spark a competition of pride amongst fans. Pop culture critic Kim Jak Ga stated, “These days, idol fans say that they go to concerts to show their support and power,” and “As each group has a different color for their balloons, they show their power by having the most number of balloons at the venue.“

Fans think of balloons as a medium that connects them to their singers. That is why ‘fights’ break out between fanclubs over balloon colors. When fans of F.T. Island were ready to designate their balloon color as ‘pearl rainbow blue’, Super Junior fans began writing online posts of protest, stating that the color was too similar to their own color of ‘pearl sapphire blue’.

One fan stated, “When viewed from afar, you can’t even tell the difference between the two colors.” A TVXQ fan expressed of her reluctance to share balloon colors with other groups as she said, “Because fans and singers have lots of memories embedded in and feel a sense of connection through balloons, it wouldn’t be easy for us to give up our balloon color (to fans of other singers), even if our favorite group disbands.“

As it has become hard for fanclubs to choose balloon colors, some have turned to alternatives such as glow-sticks. YG Entertainment idols have created special glow-sticks instead of balloons for their fans to use. Big Bang’s are crown shaped while Se7en’s are in the shape of a ’7′. CEO Hong Seung Sung of Cube Entertainment stated, “If it’s too difficult to choose a balloon color for B2ST, we will use glow-sticks instead.”

JYJ's Kim Junsu Caught On Camera Being A Soccer Pitch 'DdalBabo'

Group JYJ’s Kim Junsu appeared in the Thong Nhat Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on the 15th of this month to show off his hidden soccer skills at ‘The 1st Doosan Asian Dream Cup’, Park Ji Sung’s charity soccer match.

Meanwhile, two photos were sent to ‘Enter Post’ recently.

They were unreleased photos that were taken at the opening ceremony of the April 15th ’2011 Peace Star Cup Celebrity Soccer Tournament’ at the Suwon World Cup Stadium.



In the photo, Kim Junsu is seen making eye contact with a little girl and conversing with her. He even bent over to be at level with the little girl and talked to her with what seem like warm words. But the little girl seems somewhat awkward and out-of-place. The difference in the two people’s expressions in the same situation brings a smile to one’s face.

What was Kim Junsu saying to the little girl?

Kim Junsu’s soccer pitch ‘DdalBaBo’ moments don’t end just here.

In another photo, Kim Junsu is seen fixing his hair while refusing to let go of the little girl’s hand. Even the little girl doesn’t let go of Kim Junsu’s hand, even if it meant scratching her cheek with the opposite hand. The moment caught on camera shows the two mirroring each other in a cute way.



‘Enter Post’ would like to ask this little girl, whose name we don’t know, a question that fans must be wanting to ask.

“Kid! What good deed did you do in your past life to deserve such good luck?”

“The Power Of Park Yoochun” is truly unstoppable!

JYJ member Park Yoochun is currently starring in MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley” which is continually being exported to various countries and reaping big rewards. “Miss Ripley” started airing this month” and was sold to China, Japan, Taiwan and other countries during the “2011 Shanghai TV Festival.”

As“Miss Ripley” is a show that casts Park Yoochun, who is active as a singer throughout Asia and holds the firm position as a “Hallyu star,” it has received a lot of attention from overseas buyers even from the planning stage. Therefore, once the show started airing, it simultaneously opened up pathways for the overseas markets.

MBC personnel expressed, “After the first episode of the drama aired, it didn’t take very long to get contracts. So actually, it can be considered as a pre-sale. As he is a member of JYJ, and has a large fan-base all across Asia, we could negotiate for favorable terms when signing the contracts.”

Recently, Park Yoochun was invited to participate in the “The 1st Doosan Asian Dream Cup,” and went to Vietnam for this first charity event from the JS Foundation, founded by English Premier League player Park Ji-Sung.

Other JYJ members Kim Junsu and Kim Jaejoong, together with Park Yoochun paid a visit to Vietnam and received a passionate reception from the Vietnamese fans, once again proving that they are indeed representative Hallyu stars.

Jung Sun Ah Praises Kim Junsu in Her Interview



It looks like each member of the ‘Mozart quartet’ has his own unique character?

“They’re different. Each of them are different.”

#2 Kim Junsu(Xiahzart): “Wow~ That kid is really a prodigy. That word explains him well. I think he’s really intelligent. Compared to last year’s performances, he wasn’t able to rehearse much for the encore performance because he was also holding a world tour in between. He came to about two rehearsals and did a run-through and he was so good at it. There were a lot of changes in the lyrics from last year’s performances, but he was perfect.“

“He talks to me on the phone and we chat on Kakao Talk often. I really like him. But it’s not only me; other ‘aunties’… like Young Suk and Lee Gyeong Mi, really like him too. This is confidential.. but when we’re in the make up room, there’s a monitor that let’s us watch what Junsu’s doing on stage. Whenever Junsu comes on, we all say, “How is he so good?”, “Awwww~” and “Look at him, look at him!” Gyeong Mi’s love for Junsu is amazing.”

(omitted)

Two of your husbands are older than you and two are younger than you.

“I don’t know about Junsu, but I can feel the age difference with Dong Seok, though they’re both younger than me. He’s quite handsome on stage. Hahaha!”

(omitted)

“Could there be anyone (who came from being a celebrity to a musical actor) who loves musicals more than I do? For people who have come from the TV screen to the musical stage, some may see musicals as just a job that brings home the paycheck. But how much do those people really love musicals? Of course, Junsu is an exception. From when I was little, I’ve always dreamed of becoming a musical actress. Now, I’m living it and wanting to make it my entire life.”

(omitted)

Who is the actor who has had the best chemistry with you till now? Just so you know, a fan of Kim Junsu asked this question.

“Hahaha! First of all, I’d just like to say that I have horrible memory. When a concert has an encore performance, people usually remember how other actors were in the initial performance, but I can’t. My mom says, ‘How do you memorize your lines with that awful memory of yours?’ I’m better at momentary concentration.”

“At first, I worked really well with Gun Myeong. At that time, I didn’t know much so it must have been hard on him. I work really well with Junsu too. I thought we wouldn’t have great chemistry together but we surprisingly do. It’s because Junsu’s so witty.“

While clearing up rumors of an alleged wedding, actress Han Ye Seul proposed a surprise date to Choikang Changmin. This was on the 20th during the ‘Spy Myeong Wol’ press conference at the KBS Drama Center.

On this day, Han Ye Seul cleared up rumors of her getting married soon and said, “Though it might be difficult to get married in the next year, my chances will probably shoot up in two to three years.” She continued to say, “If I want to get married, I should probably stick to the plan of getting a boyfriend after this production is over.”

To this, Eric also helped her as he said, “I too was curious of the rumors so I asked her about it on the plane, but she told me she has no plans to get married any time soon. But I’m worried that another article will be published with the title, ‘Han Ye Seul to get Married in Three Years’. Those were words that could be misunderstood easily.”

When asked what she thought about being chosen as Choikang Changmin’s ideal woman, she aroused laughter from those around her when she said, “Choikang Changmin, do you want to spend the summer solstice with me?”

Xiah Junsu Lives In The Same Neighborhood As Lee Sora...288m^2 For 1.8 Billion Won



It has been confirmed that JYJ’s Xiah Junsu lives in the same neighborhood as singer Lee Sora.

Lee Sora’s Winsle County town house in Paju, Gyeonggi-do has become a hot topic online and it has been found that Xiah Junsu’s parents live in the same area.

Xiah Junsu’s house is a 87 pyeong(approximately 288m²) Winsle County house and was sold to him at a market price of around 1.7 to 1.8 billion Won. Lee Sora is living in a 75 pyeong(248m²) house that costs approximately 1.5 billion Won. The two houses are at a very close distance though each is built as a detached villa, and they’ve been called the ‘Star Town Houses’ amongst those living in the neighborhood.

Xiah Junsu has garnered great attention in the past when he released photos of his house’s interior on his Twitter account. In May, he uploaded photos of his garden of flowers with the captions, “I fed my fish. The baby fish have grown up so much,” and “This is the scenery of the garden from the second floor. The azaleas have bloomed and the running water sounds pretty good.”



Winsle County is made up of 98 large-scale town houses across 43,281m² of land and each villa has three floors, of which one is underground. Each villa has an average of 100m² of private gardens, has parking space for at least two cars and can each have its mailing address registered individually. Each room has great lighting and scenery as the houses are surrounded by an array of beautiful landscapes.

A representative of Dongmoon Construction stated, “As it is impossible to see the inside of the house when you pass by, it would be close to impossible to invade the families’ privacies,” and “Most of the people who live in the houses are executives of firms, professionals, and delegates.”

Fan Report Regarding Yunho's Leg Injury



This is written by HaoNu@weibo

Through the help of a Korean Noona fan, I am able to directly ask Yunho’s father about Yunho’s leg injury. Due to Yunho’s hectic schedule and the continuous skating practice for two days, Yunho strained his leg and it is slightly swollen. However, the leg injury is not so serious to the extent that he needed hospital treatment. Yunho’s injury has been relieved through medications and massage treatments. Yunho and his father would like everyone to not worry too much about his injury and hope that everyone could continue supporting the show.

I’ve the same thought as many of my friends. We are proud of Yunho for participating in the show but on the other hand, we are worried about him as well. Upon learning he had himself injured, we do hope that he can withdraw from the program immediately. However, given his character, we know that Yunho does not allow himself to be defeated easily. Since he chose to participate in this program, he would put in his very best till the very end of the program. Its either he works hard till the very last second of his performance or he do not participate at all. This is our Yunho. Therefore, though we are worried about him, let’s watch him complete each and every of his performances beautifully. Yunho hwaiting!

Lyrics To Yuchun's "The Empty Space Left For You" (from Miss Ripley Sountrack)

The Empty Space for You
Album: Miss Ripley OST Part3
Composed & Written by: Jung Haesung
Song by: Park Yuchun

I hope it’s not love
The coming goodbye hurts so much
If you can be happy, [I’ll] stop now stop
This is all I can do for you

My love is an empty space only for you for you for you
I look away and laugh with effort so that you don’t find out
I don’t like it when you’re hurt I don’t like goodbyes
You shouldn’t love me

I would like it if it wasn’t you
Because you, you are the most precious to me in this world
So I push you away and make you cry and turn you down
This is all I can do for you

My love is an empty space only for you for you for you
I look away and laugh with effort so that you don’t find out
I don’t like it when you’re hurt I don’t like goodbyes
You shouldn’t love me

Don’t wait for me… I barely hold back the bitter tears
And I turn around and leave like this

I love you I love you I love you I love you my only love
Although I shout with my heart I can’t call out because [you’re] too precious
My pain is okay because I love you
I can just cry until I’m crazy

I don’t like it when you’re hurt because I love you
I can just do this much

사랑이 아니었음 좋겠어
자꾸 다가오는 이별은 너무 아프잖아
니가 행복할 수 있다면 그만 이제 그만
네게 해줄 수 있는 건 이것뿐

내 사랑 너만을 너만을 너만을 너를 위한 빈자리
눈치 채지 못하게 애써 외면하며 웃고 있는다
니가 아프면 난 싫어 이별은 싫어
날 사랑하면 안돼요

그대가 아니었음 좋겠어
세상에서 가장 소중한 그대 그대 이니까
그래서 널 밀치며 또 울리며 뿌리치며
네게 해줄 수 있는 건 이것뿐

내 사랑 너만을 너만을 너만을 너를 위한 빈자리
눈치 채지 못하게 애써 외면하며 웃고 있는다
니가 아프면 난 싫어 이별은 싫어
날 사랑하면 안돼요

기다리지마 쓰디쓴 눈물 또 겨우 참아내며
난 뒤돌아서 가요 나 이렇게

사랑해 사랑해 사랑해 사랑해 하나뿐인 내 사랑
가슴으론 외쳐도 너무 소중해서 부르진 못해
내가 아픈 건 괜찮아 사랑하니까
난 미치도록 울면 돼

니가 아프면 난 싫어 사랑하니까
난 여기까지 하면 돼

According to the comedian, his homepage was flooded when he insulted TVXQ on ‘Gag Concert’. His homepage was visited by a total of 180,000 people in a mere hour and became ‘a field of insults’.

Yoon Hyung Bin said, “At that time, as soon as I said TVXQ’s name, the audience looked at me with sincere worry for my safety,” and “The insult I made was, ‘They have a fanclub of 800,000 but have only sold 100,000 copies of their album?’”

He continued to show the power(?) of TVXQ by saying, “When I looked at the ‘field of insults’ on my homepage, I thought ‘Wow, I’ve never seen those kinds of insults before,’” and “I’ve always been attacked by my antifans when I was ‘Wang Biho’. Usually, 20,000 to 30,000 people would appear on my homepage but when I insulted TVXQ, I attracted 180,000 people.”

"Miss Ripley" Park Yoochun Reveals His Identity To Lee Da Hae



On yesterday’s episode of MBC’s “Miss Ripley,” Yoo Hyun (Park Yoo Chun) unveiled his identity to Mi Ri (Lee Da Hae) by confessing that he’s Mondo Group’s heir.

After Yoo Hyun and Mi Ri started officially dating, he cautiously revealed, “My dad is the CEO of Mondo Group” in order to introduce her to his parents. Mi Ri, who was aware of the fact, made a surprised face, pretending that she was shocked, as she demanded “How could you deceive me?” Yoo Hyun apologized, “I’m sorry. Can you please forget everything else and just think about me? Please understand that I did this so that I could meet you.”



However, as Mi Ri continued to pretend that she was fuming, Yoo Hyun confessed “I love you. I’m upset that I have to confess my love to you in this kind of situation, but I really mean it. I love you.”



Things have been going on the way Mi Ri had planned as Yoo Hyun revealed his identity to her. She followed alongside Yoo Hyun to meet his father In Soo (Jang Yong) and confessed that they have promised to marry each other. However, his step mom Lee Hwa (Choi Myung Gil) gazed at her suspiciously, foreshadowing that she might possibly influence Mi Ri and Yoo Hyun’s relationship.



MBC’s “Miss Ripley” received viewer ratings of 13.2% yesterday, a slight increase of 1.3% from Monday, according to statistics by AGB Nielsen Media Research. Meanwhile, SBS’s “Lie to Me” and KBS’s “Baby-Faced Beauty” which are aired during the same time slot received 8.7% and 14.6%, respectively.

Hayato’s Blog Updates
The number of fans' signatures are so few



June 23, 2011
A little bit disappointed


I heard that the fans sent a demanding paper to avex.
(T/N: Hayato should be referring to this one.) http://xoxojyj.blog.fc2.com/

Reading the contents, I think they are the fans' natural opinions and rights.

But, were there only 14923 signatures?... so few?

The number of the international fans' signatures are also included…

There were more than 20000 who participated in the charity concert… there were many more who wanted to participate, but could not… and so few?

JYJ’s 3 members' feelings toward avex… me, who have directly heard from them, think that this number is unexpectedly small.

I heard that there were fans who took the lead not to participate in the petition.
I feel very sorry that…JYJ’s feeling toward Japan has not reached the fans.


I do not need anyone’s comments concerning this matter.


(on 11:08)


(T/N: The comment column which the fans could write in was closed from the start, and the article itself was deleted approx two hours after posting.)

The Current Situation of JYJ in Japan
From Weekly Magazine Shukan Bunshun



T/N: Shukan (Weekly) Bunshun is a weekly magazine, a circulation of 500 thousand copies per week (2008). The main target is for working member of the society.


It is almost a year since, and there were many pains… we didn’t know it was this hard to be able to come to Japan. (Jaejoong’s MC)

There was the charity event for the Eastern Japan disaster by the Korean 3 members’ group JYJ on June 7 at Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo. 20 thousand went wildly excited.

Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu broke away from the Korean 5 members’ group Tohoshinki, and formed JYJ. They brought the case to court because they were dissatisfied of profit sharing and of the 13 years’ long term contract, the so-called “slave contract”. They are being in opposition with Yunho and Changmin, who remained as “Tohoshinki”. Being in such trouble, avex, who have signed with them their Japanese contract, have suspended the activities of the 3 members from September last year.

“The remaining contract period is less than one year. They intend not to approve any of their activities.” (person related to the record company)
JYJ side has stated that the charity itself is not show business, however, avex stated that “there are contractual problems”, and there was talk that the performance itself will be cancelled.
“The concert at the Kokugikan was not announced until the last minute, and JYJ side forced their way through. avex is now enraged, and if there is a similar case in the future, they may claim compensation for damages. (same person)

“It is so lonely that they resumed their activities for only one day. If they hold a concert every day, I will go every day, and I will contribute every day, too.” There are such fans’ voices. On the other hand, the tabloid newspapers and TV stations took no notice of the event the next day.
It should be a little later before we can see their Japanese activities.



(T/N: above the article)
They sang 12 songs for both the afternoon and evening event. The ticket price in auction sites were up to 5 times of the original price. It was the first time that the Kokugikan was full of ladies. (T/N: Kokugikan is the venue for traditional Japanese sumo wrestling matches.)

(T/N: right bottom of Junsu picture)
Junsu is active in musicals. His twin brother Juno is active in the entertainment world, too.

(T/N: left bottom of Jaejoong picture)
Jaejoong was the eldest in Tohoshinki. He made his Japanese drama debut last year.

(T/N: right bottom of Yoochun picture)
Yoochun was living in US since he was in the upper grade of elementary school till right before his debut in 2004.

------

T/N: avex stockholders' meeting 2011 will take place on June 26 (Sun), 10:00am at the Tokyo International Forum

Yoochun's 'Miss Ripley' and Changmin's 'Come To Play' Were Filmed At The Same Time In The Same Building

JYJ’s Park Yoochun and TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin kept MBC’s staff on their toes as they filmed for their respective shows on the same day and time with just one wall separating them.

On the 22nd, Park Yoochun filmed for ‘Miss Ripley’ on set at the MBC Dream Center in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do. He was following a rigorous schedule of filming for the drama in the morning in the MBC building and heading out in the afternoon to film in Gangnam.

Next to the indoor set of ‘Miss Ripley’ was the set of MBC’s ‘Come to Play’. On this day, many SM Entertainment singers were present after completing their ‘SM TOWN Live Tour in Paris’ performance in Paris, France. Choikang Changmin was present to represent TVXQ on ‘Come to Play’.

Fortunately, it was later found that the two did not run into each other due to their busy schedules. But as Park Yoochun and SM Entertainment representatives have not met in public since the 2009 lawsuit, MBC staff later reported that they were unable to hide their nervousness as they were kept on their toes.

Since Park Yoochun began singing as a member of JYJ, he has been unable to appear on variety shows. Though the lead roles of ‘Miss Ripley’ tried to appear on ‘Come to Play’, the plan was canceled due to doubtful reasons. Even ‘Section TV Entertainment News’ has dropped out of publicizing its own broadcasting company’s drama, which has never happened before.

At the press conference of ‘Miss Ripley’, Park Yoochun confessed, “Though I want to appear on variety shows, I keep getting ‘cut’.”

A representative of ‘Miss Ripley’ stated, “Park Yoochun was supposed to head over to Gangnam to film in the afternoon but filming was delayed, meaning that Park Yoochun was still in Ilsan when ‘Come to Play’ was being filmed,” and “Though the relationship between Park Yoochun and the company(SM Entertainment) may be strained, he is not on bad terms with the members so I don’t think he minded that much.”

T/N: The translator would like to remind readers that the word choice used in this article is not her own, but of the reporter who wrote the original article. I don’t think ‘Fortunately’ is the word that should be used to state the fact that the two did not meet (in public…. *crosses fingers*).

Staff said, “On the filming site, Park Yoochun is the youngest, and thus due to his whines and ‘cutie pie’ happiness expressions, it made the filming site of ‘Miss Ripley’ a harmonious atmosphere.

In fact, big senior Kim Seung Woo has named Park Yoochun as his ‘precious junior’, therefore it can be depicted that Park Yoochun was humble and polite to his seniors and his personal character is very easy-going. Park Yoochun would also casually talked to those production staffs who are difficult to get along with and would show his concerns about them. This kindness side of him earned the highest popularity among the female staffs.

The production company expressed, “In the days of tough filming, Park Yoochun engaged the atmosphere of the filming site and laughters, and was the vitality element,”,”On the filming site, Park Yoochun is the youngest, thus he worked hard to ‘up’ the ambiance. A person like this, is worth the praising. In fact in many occasions, it was due to Park Yoochun’s smiles that the on-site was filled with laughters.”

On the other hand, in ‘Miss Ripley’, the guilt-stricken scenes of Lee Da Hae, who is making use of the two men Kim Seung Woo and Park Yoochun for success, has lead to the increase of the viewers’ curiosity.

The intriguing lies of Lee Da Hae has gradually lead to the danger of revelations and the fall into the abyss of greed. The hypocritical love that started between her, Kim Seung Woo and Park Yoochun, will there be realization of true love in the end? Viewers were especially attentive to this.

Translation of Changmin's InStyle Interview



Part 1

- “Last night, I slept really well.”

- Choikang Changmin had spent his first day in Hawaii, and seemed to be in good spirits. As he greeted us “Good Morning” and looked out at the gleaming sea, he sat, refined and poised like in a movie, sipping coffee and flashing us that killer smile.

- “The theme for this Hawaiian vacation has been settled. It’s ‘Rediscovering Shim Changmin’. So, would you like to come discover with me? (LOL)”

- Regarding his debut at the age of 17, and having always been known as “TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin”, this trip is particularly special to him. Even though this resulted in less time that he could have spent travelling Korea with his friends, the respite from their continuous activities in Japan and in Korea was more than welcomed, especially being able to travel by himself.

- “This is a real time off (from activities), but instead of resting, I’m spending my time on the school work that I was unable to do, or learning things that I couldn’t have before. Now that I think about it, it seems like I’m asking too much from myself. I should be disarming right now. (LOL)”

- Being in a duo with Uknow Yunho to become “Dong Bang Shin Ki”, and standing on stage once more, he underwent much pain and suffering, because he has to live as a part of TVXQ, which is of utmost importance, but he is unable to enjoy his youth. Perhaps, that is what led him to say that treasuring every moment in Hawaii may not be a reality.

- His favourite travel spots are expansive oceans, and tranquil mountain ranges.

Part 2

- “For the 2006 photoshoot, we went to Bora Bora Island, in Tahiti. Because the schedule was very tight, we couldn’t enjoy the place and relax, but to me, that was by far the best place on Earth. Everywhere you looked, the view was like a painting. If I had the chance, I would definitely want to go back. Ah, it seems like an ideal place for a honeymoon. (LOL)”

- Actually, he already has experienced the married life (?), in last winter’s drama serial “Paradise Ranch”. That was the first time that Changmin tried acting, and this new experience, no longer on stage, has fortified him. Strolling on Waikiki Beach, Changmin says: “Hawaii seems to complement my character. No matter where I go, I feel serene. Although coming by myself to Hawaii without Yunho hyung, I do feel sorry about that. (LOL) Having to say that I will be leaving this place soon, I already feel reluctant.”

- Having said that, however, when he returns to Korea, he will be boasting to Uknow Yunho about the 5 days he spent in Hawaii; how he took all these pictures, and how happy he was, exactly like the mischievious kid that he is.

- “Yunho hyung and I are complete opposites. So from the moment we started living together in the same dormitory, there were a lot of unresolved issues. For example, he would drink directly from the 1.5L bottle in the fridge, instead of pouring it into a cup. But over time, these small details no longer become points of contention between the two of us; we’ve gradually become like family.”

- Rather effortfully, he said that because they are like family, they treasure each other equally, hence helping TVXQ keep its place.

- Is there anything you would like to do after the interview?

Part 3

- “Having listened to Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song”, I want to do what the lyrics say, not doing anything, not thinking about anything, simply lazing in bed. I also want to write in my diary by the sea, because I want cherish these moments for a long time. Subsequently, when I write songs, I want to express these feelings in my lyrics. ”

- For this year’s summer vacation, he mentioned that he wanted to tour LA and New York with his friends. He also wants to watch performances with his favourite artistes, and shop in town with his friends, looking at various things. Come night time, he wants to go to a bar and drink good beer. Right now he is the headliner in the Hallyu Wave that is sweeping across Asia, Europe and America, a member of TVXQ, and is still very much Choikang Changmin. But in the quiet of the night, he is like any other 24 year old, wanting to enjoy good beer and music, meeting up with friends and eating pans of pizza, and hoping to meet to girl of his dreams.

- Given all that though, if life was that utopian, he would be uneasy. “I am TVXQ, I am Choikang Changmin, and I must surpass these standards.”; even then he is unable to change this mindset.

- “Now it is different. To feel like I’m moving along in life, to feel like I’m on my way to where I want to be, feeling happiness and melancholy alike are a must, even failure. You always feel a touch of regret with the days that have gone by. That is why, to compensate for that remorse you have to strive even harder in the futrue. When you’re on vacation, your heartaches are forgotten temporarily, and it’s like returning to the start, because you have another vacation waiting. Would you like to come with me on my next vacation? (LOL)”

Japan's Prominent Newspaper Asahi Writes on "The Boss Has Changed"

Asahi, one of Japan’s most respected newspapers, printed an article on The Boss Has Changed.

The article does not say anything new, but let’s all have a chuckle at how the headline highlights the fact of Jaejoong’s appearance even though the article is ostensibly about the drama XD.

'The Yoochun Effect', Ratings Shoot Up When Park Yoochun Appears On 'Miss Ripley'



MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Miss Ripley’ is benefiting from ‘The Park Yoochun Effect’.

When looking at the viewer ratings per minute for the second half of the 7th episode that aired on the 20th, the ratings shot up past 16% during the scene in which Park Yoochun proposes to Jang Miri. As the average viewer ratings were 11.9%, one can see that Park Yoochun raised the ratings per minute by 5%. Even on the 21st, the ratings shot up to 15% when Park Yoochun appeared, proving once more of the effect he has on the drama.

Park Yoochun established his star quality as a singer and has built up his credibility as an actor through the drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’.

A representative of the drama stated, “Park Yoochun always comes to film with a smile and as the four characters in the melodrama have a complicated heart line, he is working hard and doing his best with his script. He gets completely immersed into his character and plans to bring out the charisma that is hidden in his soft nature.”

Park Yoochun also plans to change his hairstyle soon for the drama. Caught between Miri’s upcoming destruction and Hui Joo’s unrequited love for him, Yoo Hyun’s strife will add to the dramatic effect of the production.

‘This Empty Place is For You’, Park Yoochun’s theme song for Song Yoo Hyun, has had an explosive effect on the music charts.

Hayato's Blog Updates



June 25, 2011
This week’s Shukan Bunshun

I have received comments and messages from many fans concerning this week's Bunshun article.

The place where I want you to read is P36 and 37.
(T/N: The summary of the article is; CEO Matsuura of avex is sued by a management consultant & professional troublemaker (at stockholders' meetings) Katsumi Motomura for confining and intimidating him (Motomura) in 2008, after the year's stockholders' meeting)

I only write what I've directly seen, what I've directly heard.
But I am not writing all that I know.

There are things that cannot be written.

One of them, Bunshun has written …

Soon…

I may stop…

I am thinking nowadays that… I've done all that I could.

Well, I want to apply to my work…that is one reason…but looking into the numerous comments one by one, and to accept everyone's feelings firmly… sincerely hearing all the opinions.. that is my belief…but honestly, I am a little bit tired.

I am in the midst of the truth.
So I was continuously writing the truth the best that I can, but there are many fans that do not believe any of my words… they believe false information, and close their eyes to my articles which reverses to their beliefs… that cannot be helped.

"Please do believe in avex in the future."
"Please believe that if the 3 members return to avex, the 5 members may be together one day."

I do not think that believing in such a way is a bad thing.
If that is everyone's wish, you can keep on believing.

I posted an article about the petition the other day.
(T/N: Please click here for the trans.) http://www.onetvxq.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=18880

I received many comments. (clapping comments)
(T/N: There is a "clap" button with every article. If you agree upon the article, you can press the button to show your approval.)

There were many that could not agree to what I've written… a little bit disappointed.
Since it was a petition which required your real name, you couldn’t sign for it…
I understood that there were many that did not participate according to various reasons.
I should think over… that I lacked consideration.
I am sorry for those who were hurt by my article.

But, that petition was not only sent to avex.
It was sent to an important public organization, so that JYJ can freely be active in Japan.
That should have been the chance that they could be active in Japan.. so I accidentally wrote "A little bit disappointed".

I was impatient to the situation that… the fans themselves were wasting the big chance.
I am really sorry.


CEO Matsuura was tweeting at the timing when this petition had started.
"We are sorry for the fans, but even though there are 10 thousand signatures, we cannot admit a person who is wrong."

If there were 50 thousand signatures, he shouldn't easily have said such a thing… Wasn't it only me, who thought like this?

But, I do not care anymore.

I'm tired.

"Fuck you Hayato"
"Annoying, disappear"
"You should have died at the Tsunami"
"I'll pierce your eyes with a needle"


Are they anti?
If so, you should stop being a fan for the 2 members of Tohoshinki.
I myself like them (T/N: the 2 members), too.
So, I don't want you to make them sad…

Or, were they JYJ fans, and thought me annoying?
Then simple.. you should stop reading my blog.

To shut down this blog… that will make the anti-fans happy.. so I thought that I will continue writing by all means.
Honestly, I do not care about the anti-comments, and ignored them. (but according to the suggestion from the lawyer, I am reporting every IP address.)

But, I was depressed with the severe comments from the JYJ fans…it was painful.
They were the comments since they loved JYJ, so it was hard for me to take them just by myself.
So I was busy, raising and lowering my spirits (Lol)

I may close the blog now… or rest for a while.. or maybe comeback?
For the time being… I'd like to say "See you!"


Hayato


※In July, there will be a special news on the 3hree Voices' site.
Please check them once in a while.

Oh, the back view of me is in 3hree Voices Ⅱ.
I think you would consider me handsome, how do you think? (lol)

Sincerely,

Watching The Korean Version "Mozart!"
An article from a Japanese writer's blog



(T/N: From profile; Kaoru Ohara is a professional writer, who watches theatrical performances and write about them in magazines.


June 22, 2011
The Korean Version “Mozart!”


Last weekend, I flew to Korea to see musicals.
The performance I watched was “Mozart!” ”Hedwig” “Spring Awakening”. Each performance was so wonderful, it was worth going. I felt the energy of Korean musicals on the trip.
So I would like to post my impressions for the 3 musicals.
First of all, “Mozart!”.

.
The story started from…
Last year, I collected materials from Yoshio Inoue and Ikusaburo Yamazaki (I was really impressed watching Wolfgang a from very near distance during the poster photo shooting), and I heard from Inoue-san that he watched Kim Junsu-san’s “Mozart!” in Korea. I got very interested. Inoue-san said that he was very happy to see that “Mozart!” was well received in Korea, as though he was a part of them. He also said that he shared the feelings when he talked with Junsu-san, who was performing the same Wolfgang. In Japan, you rarely perform two performances in a day, but Junsu-san was doing so, and he (Inoue) thought how tough that should be.
This spring, I watched the DVD of “Kim Junsu Musical Concert”, and was surprised in its high vocal quality. Thus, I thought that I really wanted to watch “Mozart!” in Korea.
Even though I wanted to see the musical, we cannot of course get the tickets easily. Junsu-san’s ticket was sold out at once. But I have contacted the ticketing site interpark with persistence (lol), and when you access to the site around midnight, the cancelled tickets come out one by one, and I was able to get a ticket which was cancelled.

So, to go on with the main subject.
“Mozart!” was performed by Kim Junsu-san (=JYJ’s Xiah Junsu-san. He seems to use his real name during the musical performance) and Park Eun Tae. I saw both performances.
The performance was different from that of the Japanese “Mozart!”
The charms of the Korean version were that they showed high vocal skills, and the performance world was really expanded by those skills. Especially, near the ending, the powerful force of the multiple vocals’ chorus singing “Mozart! Mozart!” was wonderful, beyond words.
The story is about a young man who was gifted to music, Mozart. He was hindered, and met misunderstandings, but, stuck with his music. Mozart appeared on stage in jeans and a shirt, just like modern young men. It was not Mozart that you could see in the music textbooks, but he was laughing, and also undergoing mental conflicts. The character of the performance was to show the “true living Mozart”.
What was magnificent about Junsu-san’s Mozart was that he was truly living his role.
My friend who was watching the musical together with me (who is familiar with the Hanryu wave) told me after the performance that Junsu-san did not have any experience before the previous “Mozart!” premiere. I was very surprised, but since he did not have any experience in acting, he might have been able to put forth his real heart to the role.

And generally, the musical performers from classical music fields are good in profound performance, but some are not fit to express the flippant part of Mozart. But Junsu-san was really good at expressing Mozart’s flippancy (e.g. going off to play when the friends tempts him), and he is also good at comical expressions. I think that this point is very important in expressing this Mozart role.
What is the most fascinating thing is that we can feel Junsu-san’s deep sympathy with Mozart, who was trying to express his own music however the interference may be. Especially in “Ich bin ich bin Musik”, I recognized that he was trying to convey the message with care during the song, though I do not understand Korean.
He was also including rockstyle shouts which you can rarely hear in regular musicals, so I was worrying “will his throat be OK?” (lol) But my friend said that he was always doing these shouts in his regular music acitivites (concerts), and he is famous that he has a strong throat. I thought “really?” These vocal skills was appropriate in expressing Mozart’s rock’n’roll spirits.

N-Train's Leader Jung Jungkyun Says: "I Escaped Fraud Thanks To JYJ's Kim Jaejoong"



Jung Jungkyun of N-Train poured out his experience of close escape from fraud. [The boy group N-Train’s] leader Jung Jungkyun said: “In about 2008, the contact with the Chinese company was established and we even entered into a contract. However, after the large earthquakes of Szechwan the company stopped contacting us. So our going to China fell through.” Continuing, he said: “A team member withdrew and only two were left. But we came to meet someone who said that he was “an employee of Japan’s Avex.” We had a few meetings but because he showed us photos that he took with Avex-affiliated singers and such we could not help but believe him. So we went to Japan. At the time, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong was working in Japan as TVXQ. I asked around about the man because TVXQ was affiliated with Avex. They said that ‘there is someone with that name in Avex.’ But as we talked, there began growing a feeling that something was wrong.”

Jung Jungkyun relayed: “I felt strange and so I called Jaejoong. As I asked about this and that, when I told him about the man’s appearance/clothes and looks, Jaejoong told me: ‘There is no such person in Avex. He is not an employee of Avex. Come back.’ So I returned to Korea. Even now I am thankful to Jaejoong.”
