The Japanese Producers' Impressions for the KBS Music Bank in Tokyo Dome

1. Kikuchi P (Fuji TV)

July 13, 2011 (omitted) I went to "MUSIC BANK IN TOKYO K-POP FESTIVAL" at Tokyo Dome, where Tohoshinki/KARA/SNSD/2PM/Rainbow and others performed.

(few sentences omitted)

I was tired because of all the live filming,
but, in the evening
I went to Tokyo Dome.
It was a special live (?) for
the Korean TV network
KBS-san’s music program
"MUSIC BANK".
It was very enlightening.
YES! I want to watch it again.


2. Suzumi (Casting Producer)



♪MUSIC BANK IN TOKYO K-POP FESTIVAL

The K-POP artists gathered for the Japan live for the Korean TV program "MUSIC BANK".
It started from 18:30, Jul 13 (Thurs) (T/N: it was on Wed), at the Tokyo Dome.

This is the front gate of the Tokyo Dome.

The artists who performed were:
Tohoshinki, KARA, SNSD, 2PB, BEAST
4 Minute, U-KISS, IU, Baek Ji Yung
Secret, Rainbow, INFINITE, Park Hyun Bin
RaNia, X-5

The concert hall was filled with feverish excitement!
The stick lights were so beautiful, I was really fascinated!
All the artists had good figures, they were all very attractive!

Few years ago, in the TV program "Mirai Souzoudo", the 5 members of Tohoshinki (before they broke up) appeared.
Now the 2 members have much stronger aura, I realized that they are strictly controlling themselves, and are walking their artists' road with steady steps.
We could not take our eyes of the 2 members of Tohoshinki, who has become increasingly powerful.

T/N: Please click here for the video of "Mirai Souzoudo".

Kim Jaejoong, "Actor Park Yoochun's Acting Habbit Is?"



“(Park) Yoochun’s acting habit is moving his eyebrows a lot.”

This is how JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, who is debuting as an actor through SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’, revealed the acting habits of Park Yoochun.

In an interview with Star News on the 12th, Kim Jaejoong said, “If there is a habit Yoochun has when he acts, it’s that his eyebrows raise when he acts out an emotional scene. He did it when he was acting in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ but you couldn’t see it that well because of his topknot.”

He laughed and added, “I monitored an emotional scene he acted out with Lee Da Hae in ‘Miss Ripley’, and I saw him raise his eyebrows at least ten times.“

As Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun are close enough to be considered brothers, Park Yoochun has been showing brotherly affection to Kim Jaejoong by giving him advice on acting as the latter prepares for his debut in the domestic drama industry.

To this, Kim Jaejoong explained, “Yoochun usually doesn’t explain the details in any matter but he gave me great advice on what he felt as he acted.”

Regarding Park Yoochun’s acting, he said, “I think Yoochun is in his prime these days in terms of his acting,” and “I think he feels at ease when he acts now. I feel envious because I wonder when I’ll ever be at ease as much as he is.“

Kim Jaejoong said that he met Park Yoochun, who was getting ready for ‘Miss Ripley’, at a hair salon on the day of his interview and said, “Yoochun wouldn’t let go of his script, even as he was getting his hair lathered in shampoo, and was memorizing his lines,” and “He said he had only slept an hour, and maybe that was why he had dark circles under his eyes that looked like they reached his lips.”

JYJ's Kim Jaejoong Says, "I'm Really Proud Of Our Fans Who Take The Initiative To Do Good Deeds"



It’s already been seven years since their debut. JYJ(Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) and their fans both share warm hearts and a need to help others. Maybe it’s because they have spent much time together and overcome many obstacles to get to where they are now.

JYJ have been repaying their fans’ love by giving back to the global community, donating a portion of their income from every concert to an international non-governmental organization(NGO). Watching JYJ take an initiative to do good deeds is enough for their fans to make an example out of them. Fans have been participating in a variety of activities such as rice wreath donations, blood donor card donations and donation drives for people with heart disease.

When reporters began praising JYJ’s fans for their charity work, Kim Jaejoong said with a proud expression, “I’m really proud of them. I know that they’ve done so many more good deeds all over the world than those that are known. Watching our fans and their work makes us feel like we should take a more active initiative in doing good deeds. I’m delighted by our fans.”

JYJ were often seen shedding tears at their Asia showcase, world tour and fan meetings because of the unwavering love that they receive from their fans. And at the center of these stages of tears stood Kim Jaejoong.

In a broadcasted interview, the other members of JYJ stated, “Kim Jaejoong has a lot of tears. Once he starts, his tears just pour out of him endlessly. He sobs as if there are water taps in his eyes that have been turned on.”

To this, Kim Jaejoong said, “In the past, I cried often. There was a period of time when I cried a lot, but I’ve been crying less these days. I think my tear ducts have closed up,” and emphasized that he is no longer a man with many tears.

Kim Jaejoong has been chosen as the member who monitors the reactions of their fans the most. When asked why, his eyes sparkled as he said, “I’m really curious about what they talk about.”

“There are fans who have liked us since our debut but there are a lot of people who became our fans after we started singing as JYJ. From those in their 30s and 40s who became our fans through Yoochun’s ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ to those in their teens who like us regardless of the fact that there are so many idol groups out there, I’m amazed at how much our fandom has spread through the different age groups.”

“Some may believe that monitoring is a tedious chore because of my busy schedule but it really isn’t. I’m really curious about what our fans talk about and about what they’re thinking.”

A Series of Self- Photos and Captions By Yoochun Himself

Star Self-Photo: Park Yoochun

Park Yoochun hit a home run in his second challenge in acting as well and succeeded in advancing. It is that he is receiving praise in the recently-airing MBC Monday-Tuesday drama Miss Ripley in which he has again taken up the role of the lead, after he finished the initiation ceremony last year through Sungkyunkwan Scandal as a new actor. He has pulled off even the ardent inner-emotive acting which suffers after knowing the falsehoods of the woman he loves, Lee Dahae, and is receiving the evaluation that he has overstepped the limits of an actor whose origins is that of the singer. Park Yoochun who is stimulating the female heart as he plays Song Yoohyun who is the successor to a chaebol group and has innocence and a carefree attractiveness has revealed the set of the drama filming.



Hello. This is Park Yoochun. As for a while the JYJ World Tour and the filming for Miss Ripley coincided my body was a bit tired also. But as we get such good responses the fatigue just washes away. Even though it is acting that is still lacking you are lenient so I am thankful. In order to portray the sensitivity of Song Yoohyun who is doing his best in order to overcome his wounds, I have for a moment put away “Park Yoochun, the human being” and is only thinking of Miss Ripley as I live. Since I am very immersed in the character it is to the degree that I am worried about the process of coming back to regular life after he drama is over. As the drama is going to its end it is true that I am getting more and more busy. The filing set of our drama Miss Ripley which is run neatly even when everything is flying all over the place—I will show you.



Speech bubble: Will the director-nim also be satisfied with this degree of acting?

1. I am immersing myself in emotions. You know that I am very wrought with worries in the drama nowadays, right? If one were to come to know of the fact that the past of the woman that he loves were all lies, what kind of feelings would he have. This is me getting into the character. Do you not feel the anxiety/tension as if one has stepped onto the stage of “I am a Singer”?



2. I am monitoring the scene just filmed. Even though I have risen on countless stages as I did activities as a group, it is still a bit awkward to see myself acting. Ah, it is not good to have the eyes like that in that scene… Director-nim, let’s have one more take!



3. This is Choi Isub Director-nim who has momentarily stopped filming to give me acting instructions. Since this is a scene that requires expression of such deep feelings it is not easy for me to act. Oh I am sorry Director-nim T_T.



4. This is my having a fun date with Lee Dahae sunbae-nim. Ah, I wish that I could in reality meet with a girlfriend instead of dating in music videos and drams.



5. This is the script of Miss Ripley. You see the highlighter marks that are meticulously checked right? I am an actor Park Yoochun who looks and looks at the script over and over until it becomes ragged!

6. As I was waiting for my turn in filming in the waiting room I fell into a trance of playing by myself. This is what is called the “lazy man’s push-ups.” This is a method used when the body is tired but you feel that you should work out, sometimes.



7. A photo with Zhang Yong sunsaeng-nim who is appearing as my father in Ripley and the CEO of Mondo Group! He is a “big” sunbae nim who waits for me to do well even if I make NG’s.



8. “Oh, Awesome Man!” Do you not feel the wild appeal? This is the true nature of the “male” Park Yoochun. This was a difficult scene because a complicated emotion had to be present along with having to keep your muscles firm.



9. This is the open set that was held in Yongin. Thankfully, in order to see me, this many Japanese fans came. I am so thankful because they watched the filming with order.



10. Choi Wonsuk Director-nim of Team B is teaching me the line of movement. Outdoors filming on a hot summer day is so difficult. The woman behind me is my stylist, who is wiping off the sweat that pours without cease.



11. Sleeping for a bit while waiting for the filming. This is a photo that makes the professional spirit of Park Yoochun shine, who is sleeping with stomach down lest the hair that is already styled may get mussed.

12. A rod-shaped fan that is making the back of my head cool. The staff is really working hard.

13. This is the “Mickey Fan.” It has a Mickey Mouse logo and so we call it a “Mickey Fan.” You do know that when I am working as a group my name is “Micky Yoochun,” right? Haha!

JYJ's Kim Jaejoong, "I'm Actually A Pretty Lonely Guy, Introduce Me To Someone"



JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong clarified the misunderstandings that surround his ideal woman.

Currently about to debut in the domestic drama industry with the SBS drama ‘Protect the Boss’, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong recently held interviews in Nonhyun-dong, Seoul.

In a broadcasted interview that was aired in February, Kim Jaejoong garnered much attention for his unusual ideal type as he said, “My ideal type is a woman who is like my housekeeper.” He continued to make the hearts of his female fans pound as he jokingly confessed, “If you’re somewhere out there, come to me quickly! I’m dying of loneliness.”

Some reporters found his idea of an ideal woman odd and to this, Kim Jaejoong said, “I think I expressed my thoughts wrong. I was talking about someone who isn’t lazy about housework, cleans well and makes great food.”

Kim Jaejoong also added, “Because I like to clean and cook, I want to be able to do these things with my girl.”

Because JYJ are celebrities, it can’t be helped that there are restrictions on their personal lives. Regarding the fact that he isn’t able to date someone in peace, he smiled and said, “Actually, there are a lot of moments in my life when I feel lonely. Will you introduce me to someone if you know any good women?”

Kim Jaejoong Doesn't Forget His Fan Service..."Yoochun, Make An Appearance In Our Drama"

JYJ’s fans must be extremely happy right now because JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong(25) will be appearing in his first Korean drama.

He will be expanding his playing field by taking on the role of Cha Mu Won, ‘the prince of the financial world’, in SBS TV’s Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’. His character is in an antagonistic relationship with his cousin Cha Ji Hun(Jisung) because of a family feud that began with their parents over the running of the conglomerate.

“Though this is my first Korean drama appearance, I don’t feel any pressure or weight on my shoulders. Shall I say that I feel a sense of nervousness? Of course, I do feel a little pressured about having our drama’s viewer ratings compared to that of ‘City Hunter’ because that drama is doing so well. But my greed to take on my character well is bigger than my greed to succeed.”



As he has showcased his charisma in countless performances, he is broad-minded whether he is acting or singing. But his face filled with worry when he was reminded that Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu have become hits in the drama and musical industries respectively.

He smiled and said, “When I think about the whole situation with only myself in perspective, I don’t feel pressured but when I’m reminded that the other guys have done so well, I suddenly feel a weight on my shoulders,” and “I can’t help but feel pressured when we get compared to each other.”

Kim Jaejoong has gotten his feel for acting through the 2009 movie ‘Postman to Heaven’ and the Fuji TV’s ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’. Already been praised for his Japanese drama debut, the rumors of his entry into the domestic drama industry have been endless till now.

But because of his world tour schedule, Kim Jaejoong had to reject over ten productions. Therefore, the fact that he has finally decided on a drama has his fans excited and ecstatic. Kim Jaejoong says that the drama’s storyline, content and his character fits him well.

(omitted for repetition)

What kind of advice did the other members give him as fellow actors, not singers? Kim Jaejoong said, “Honestly, I don’t think we’re in the position to give each other advice as actors. All of us are still in the learning process so we just tell each other ‘Work hard,’ or ‘Do your best.’“

Kim Jaejoong is still not confident about himself as an actor. But he says that he doesn’t feel more nervous at venues with a larger crowd. “I don’t feel nervous at concert venues with 50,000~60,000 people. But when that number falls to the thousands or hundreds, my nervousness shoots up. There are about 50 people on location when he film for the drama, and I feel like all 100 eyes are staring at me and me only. I’ll have to be able to overcome that.”



JYJ, whose members originate from TVXQ, are known to be one of the most popular groups domestically and overseas. When we asked him if he will be singing or playing an instrument in the drama for his fans, he said that he doesn’t know yet. But he does have something he’d like from fellow team member Park Yoochun.

“He’s working so hard for the drama ‘Miss Ripley’ right now so I don’t know if this will work out, but I would like it if Yoochun could make a surprise appearance in our drama. He’s a director in his drama, so how about he appears in our drama as a director who comes to make a business deal with our company? Director Song, how about you appear just once?“(laughter)

Kim Jaejoong must still like his members who he’s been sharing a house with since 2004. Recently, he moved into the same apartment as Kim Junsu. He joked and said, “Honestly, I didn’t want to move in because Junsu lives there,” but was actually quite delighted to be moving in as he added, “Yoochun was supposed to move into the apartment after Junsu and he didn’t because of personal reasons. I was luckily able to get a house because someone moved out.“

He had one more service for his fans. He said, “From what I know, we’re planning on releasing an album before the drama is over,” and emphasized that he will not be abandoning his activities as a singer.

But for now, his acting comes first. Kim Jaejoong said, “When singers make acting debuts, some people still see them as singers,” and “I worry that people will still see me as a singer, so I will work hard to mesh well with my fellow actors.”

Why Does JYJ's Kim Jaejoong Have Han Hye Jin Saved As "King of Omok" in His Mobile Phone?



JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong stated that he has actress Han Hye Jin saved as ‘King of Omok’ in his mobile phone.

In an interview with TV Report on the 11th, Kim Jaejoong said, “When we went to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam for the Park Ji Sung Friends soccer match, I became good friends with Han Hye Jin.” At the time, Han Hye Jin participated in the event as the only female celebrity .

Coincidentally, Kim Jaejoong’s friend happened to know Han Hye Jin, so the two ended up sitting at the same table. Becoming friends quickly in a foreign country, the two would play ‘Omok’(T/N: Omok is a form of Baduk or Go), Han Hye Jin’s hobby, and Kim Jaejoong never won a single match against her.


Kim Jaejoong laughed and said, “She would play Omok every time she was on a break, and she’s so good that she’d probably beat a robot at it. That’s why I saved her as ‘King of Omok’ on my mobile phone.”

Kim Jaejoong is Charmed By Directing, "I Want To Work With Kim Hyun Joong, Our Album Isn't Ready Yet"

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, who recently completed a world tour of two months, has fallen for the charm of being a stage director.

Kim Jaejoong talked about his feelings of ending JYJ’s world tour and expressed the last two months in one word as ‘fun’.

He said, “At the end of the world tour, I felt so thankful and proud of our members, our company coworkers and our staff. Most of the songs we sang during the tour were songs we had composed and I even took on the role of directing the Asia leg of the tour,” and “We even took our tour to the USA; we faced difficulties and troubles but I’m so amazed and proud of the fact that we were able to pull through without receiving help from other people.”



Kim Jaejoong debuted as a director through the world tour. When asked if he prefers acting or directing, Kim Jaejoong smiled and said, “When I’m doing a performance, I’d rather be a director.” He said, “Our director is so great that I’m learning what the qualifications are to becoming a director of a drama,” and “It looks like he begins to film only when he’s done deliberating. But dramas are dramas and concerts are concerts, they each have their own charm.”

When asked which country left him with the most prominent impression during the JYJ world tour, Kim Jaejoong chose Bangkok, Thailand, which they visited in April. He explained, “I think it’s because it was the first city we visited in the Asia leg that I directed. I was so thankful to see that the reaction of our fans was positive.”

‘Director’ Kim Jaejoong is very greedy about directing the concerts and performances of other singers. Kim Jaejoong said, “I’m interested in directing the performances of other idols. Once, Kim Hyun Joong, who I’m close friends with, and I talked about releasing an album and working together, but because Kim Hyun Joong is very greedy about his music as well, I think he’d want to be the director too.“

He reminisced the days he spent directing Sohn Yeon Jae’s rhythmic gymnastics gala show and said that he had a great time doing it. He said, “Sohn Yeon Jae expressed everything much better than I had imagined.” He continued to say with pride, “I think directing is something that becomes more fun and charming the more you do it. Of course, I’m still in the learning stage but I can feel my ability to visualize an entire performance improving,” and “I felt proud of myself, knowing that I was contributing to our team during the rehearsals for our JYJ concerts, not as a singer standing on stage, but as a director who works behind the scenes.“

Regarding a Korean album, ‘Singer’ Kim Jaejoong of JYJ stated, “It’s currently in the making,” but didn’t confirm anything as he said, “I would like to release it right away if great songs come to us, but I wonder if an album release will be possible within this year. We’re working on it whenever we have time.” When asked if he plans to sing for the ‘Protect the Boss’ OST, he said he doesn’t have plans to do so ‘yet’. Kim Jaejoong said, “I don’t have any self-composed songs that can be used for the drama so for now, it would be difficult for me to participate in the OST,” but also left his fans with hope as he added, “But if I’m offered the opportunity to do so, I’ll take it. Anything for the drama.”

Park Yoochun also mentioned that due to his filming of “Miss Ripley,” he was unable to meet the members often, but there was an incident where he happened to meet Kim Jaejoong at some bar, with the staff at the bar thinking that he and Kim Jaejoong were together and bringing him to the room where Kim Jaejoong was in.

The Story Behind Yunho and Claudia's Latest Performance, "We Rehearsed Together Just Three Times

U-Know Yunho and Claudia, who are working together as partners in ‘Kim Yuna’s Kiss&Cry’, pulled off a perfect performance after rehearsing together just three times.

In the July 3rd episode, U-Know Yunho and Claudia completed a performance with the concept of ‘A Ballerina who fell in love with a B-boy’. Starting off with waltz music, the duo sped the tempo up and moved on to b-boying on ice.



In the first round of competitions, U-Know Yunho was ranked a shocking eighth place because he didn’t have time to rehearse with Claudia due to his frequent overseas activities. On the July 3rd episode, U-Know Yunho confessed, “We had even less time to rehearse together,” and emphasized the importance of practicing.

But contrary to his worries, the duo worked in harmony and shined in terms of speed, technique and acting. The move that involved U-Know Yunho’s high level windmill move and Claudia’s fast-paced spin was chosen as the best moment of the performance.

It was later found that Claudia ended the performance with quite a large wound on her hand though everything looked fine on the outside. She was scratched by the sandpaper that was attached onto U-Know Yunho’s glove to stop him from slipping on the ice while b-boying.

Also, the two people were only able to practice together three times. After sharing ideas and deciding on the choreography, the two met in the middle of the night to rehearse together. Once, they ended up practicing past two o’clock in the morning. Though U-Know Yunho and Claudia were both disappointed by their lack of practice, they were able to forget it by pulling off a great performance.

Park Yoochun Returns To His Look From 4 Years Ago- "Only His Hair Is Shorter"



JYJ member Park Yoochun recently cut his hair short, returning to his look from 4 years ago.

On 14 July, an article was posted in the forums with the title “Park Yoochun with his hair cut short, “reverse growth”, returning to 4 years ago” and uploaded images as well.

One of the images was recently taken for the MBC TV Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley,” and the other was taken 4 years ago, during his activities as a TVXQ member.

Looking at the two images, netizens were shocked, saying “He hasn’t changed at all!” “Only the fans have grown older!” “Did he drink from the fountain of youth?” and other comments.

"Miss Ripley"- Audiences Request For an Extension, Even If It's Just One Episode

The passionate requests from the viewers to add more episodes to “Miss Ripley” is still going strong. The absolute champion in the Monday-Tuesday dramas, dominating the top spot, “Miss Ripley” viewers have been continually asking for the number of episodes to be increased.



In the MBC Monday-Tuesday drama ” Miss Ripley” (Director: Choi I-Seop, Writer : Kim Sun Young, Producted by : Curtain Call Media, C-JeS Entertainment) hit ratings of 19.1% (AGB Nielsen, Seoul) in episode 14, aired on 12 July, creating a new record for the show and maintaining top position in ratings for the Monday-Tuesday drama slot.

“Miss Ripley” survived in the flood of romantic comedies, a “melodrama” that stood out like a precious gemstone. From this alone, the value of the viewership ratings are increased. They conquered the hearts of females who have been hoping to watch melodramas, and saw a steady increase in viewership ratings.

On the “Miss Ripley” messageboard, there have been numerous requests and opinions for more episodes. “I really found a special drama that moves one’s heart. I can’t stop crying as I watch TV.” “There are still so many words left unsaid between Choi Myung Gil and Lee Da Hae, how can you just end it like this. It would feel more complete after an extension,” and other comments, the call for an extension being very strong.

The production company said, “With regards to the extension of the show, the staff have been observing intently and diligently trying to fully understand the situation.” “As there is a lot more of the story that we want to tell, we too are hungry for an extension so as to be able to show a more complete drama.”

Also, the new record high ratings of 19.1% (AGB Nielsen, Seoul) in episode 14 have boosted the possibility (of an extension.)

The big plot twist of Choi Myung Gil being the birth mother of Lee Da Hae has attracted much attention. In the confrontation scene at the end (of episode 14) where Choi Myung Gil realises that Lee Da Hae is her daughter, viewership ratings hit 19.5% (AGB Nielsen, Seoul) momentarily, obviously pointing out the part of the plot where the viewers are most concerned about.

Please read from bottom to top.

I don't have anything to do with it, and I don't know anything about it. But there are those who send me childish complains anonymously, selfishly misunderstanding the situation. It sucks, and also lame... This time, we are the victims. Thanks for your understanding.

YES! RT @kana_tw5: @masatomatsuura Everyone was blaming avex without knowing anything. I also thought a little bit "Maybe avex is wrong", and I am very sorry about that(>_<) I really apologize.. I think everyone should be thinking like that(T_T)

To tell the truth, this story is as a bolt from the blue. I don't know why I have to hear complains about the things which they did without permission. I will take necessary actions in order to protect all the artists. I did not know anything about this case, but I will deal with this issue. For the time being, this is my word.

RT @masatomatsuura: RT @abendjpn: Recently, a Chinese singer covered Jaejoong's song. I became interested, so I investigated the case. I found out that the Chinese singer who has no relation whatsoever with company a (T/N: avex) translated and sung the song without permission. As usual, the people in that country is interesting. The video in YouTube has a different logo (of a company), they are stealing and it is really tricky.


The last two tweets in the caps are completely the same. But I have capped both of them, since the second from bottom tweet is insufficient and cut in the middle, considering the limit on the numbers of characters on the twitter.

JYJ's Jaejoong Praised by 'Protect The Boss' Co-Stars for his Acting Talent



JYJ’s Jaejoong is being highly praised by his senior co-stars for his acting skills on SBS’s ‘Protect the Boss‘.

According to SBS, the crew kicked off the drama’s official filming by recording a reception scene at the 63 Building in Yeouido, Seoul on July 15th. As soon as the cue sign was dropped by PD Son Jung Hyun, Jaejoong was said to have slipped seamlessly into his role as ‘Moon Won’.

Senior co-stars like Park Young Kyu, Cha Hwa Yeon, Kim Ha Gyun, and many others all praised, “Jaejoong is an actor who will attain greatness. Let’s all support him so that he can do even better.” Staff members who had been watching Jaejoong interact with Ji Sung for their script also complimented, “They’re truly a great senior and junior.”

Producers of the drama added, “Before filming began, Jaejoong made sure to check over not only his script, but his outfit and make-up as thoroughly as possible. Although it’s his first time acting, he is as passionate as any other actor out there.”

The drama will begin airing on August 3rd.

"Backdoor Pressure" Threatened KBS to Have the Entire Event Shut Down If They Air JYJ?



Earlier today, JYJ received a notice of cancellation regarding their appearance on a KBS special covering the ‘New Seven Wonders’, for which they were appointed honorary ambassadors for back in May.

Just four days away from the broadcast and with tickets for the event already bought, C-JeS Entertainment expressed their confusion and disappointment with the sudden cancellation notice through a post on their official homepage.

Recent developments have hinted at the possibility of backdoor pressure being the root cause, as a representative of JYJ’s public relations company revealed, “Our manager spoke with KBS officials and they had told him, ‘If we allow JYJ to appear on this program, the entire event will simply become impossible to hold.’”

Because of their lawsuit against SM Entertainment, JYJ has been facing difficulty appearing on MBC, SBS, and KBS for some time now. A similar case arose with Yoochun’s ‘Miss Ripley‘ coverage earlier this year, so the possibility of backdoor pressure isn’t too much of an exaggeration.

Currently, a request for a reasonable explanation has been lodged to the event hosts and a response is being awaited. Stay tuned for more updates.

All JYJ's Kim Jaejoong Is Doing Is Signing A Shirt...But A Photoshoot is Born, 'Visual Shock'

A photo of JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong signing a shirt has become a hot topic.

On an online community recently, a photo of Kim Jaejoong signing a t-shirt was posted. Kim Jaejoong, who is currently modelling for a clothing brand, is seen signing the shirt with a black marker.



Kim Jaejoong is wearing a white shirt with thin stripes. With slightly wavy brown hair, Kim Jaejoong is focusing his concentration on the t-shirt in front of him. His eyes that don’t seem to leave the shirt, his sharp nose and his tightly closed lips jump out of the photo.

Netizens who say the photo said, “Him signing that t-shirt looks like a work of art”, “All he’s doing is signing a shirt but it looks like it’s from a photoshoot”, “I’m so jealous of whoever is getting the shirt”, “That t-shirt was touched by Kim Jaejoong”, and “His beauty jumps out. Visual shock indeed.”

On the other hand, Kim Jaejoong will be debuting in the drama industry with the SBS TV drama ‘Protect the Boss’ on the 3rd of August. Kim Jaejoong will be playing Cha Mu Won, the prince of the financial world.

B2ST Make An Honest Confession, "We're Popular in Japan? Our Popularity Doesn't Compare With TVXQ's



B2ST made an honest confession about their popularity overseas.

On MBC’s ‘Golden Fishery-Radio Star’ on the 29th (MC’s Kim Guk Jin, Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Gura, Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul), idol group B2ST showed off their witty humor.

On this day, when MC Yoon Jong Shin said, “We heard that B2ST is very popular in Japan these days,” Sohn Dong Woon stated, “People say that we’re very popular in Japan, but honestly, we can’t feel it ourselves.”

He said, “We stood on stage with TVXQ in Japan, and our popularity doesn’t compare with their’s. We felt like guests at the concert.” To this, other members of B2ST added, “In Taiwan, Super Junior is popular and in Thailand, 2PM with Nickhun is popular.”

To this, Kim Gura said, “B2ST have gone beyond what people expected them to become when they first debuted. I think you’re amazing.”

JYJ’s appearance in the KBS Jeju’s Music event to wish for Jeju to become one of the 7 Wonders have fallen through.

The affiliate said: “We just involve ourselves in the transmission of the broadcast. The securing (of the artists) and the proceeding of the event is done by Jeju Island’s local government.”

On this, the affiliates to Jeju’s local government’s “Jeju Music Event” were not able to be reached.

We Open Kim Jaejoong's Bag To Find A Pack of Hwatu Cards?



A corner that can’t be avoided in our interviews is the ‘bag opening’ corner.

We ask stars to open their bags without prior notice in order to get one step closer to these famous faces.

Some interesting items were caught on camera in the first half of this year.

What stuck out most were Gong Hyo Jin’s pink tumbler, Kim Jaejoong’s blue pack of Hwatu cards, Yesung’s two pairs of jeans and Kim Ah Joong’s ID card from her drama.

Idol Kim Jaejoong made those around him laugh when he brought out an item that was unexpected. What he pulled out was a pack of Hwatu cards; what was most interesting about the pack was that the backs of the cards were blue. He said that he uses them to pass time when JYJ are performing overseas, adding that he usually wins most of the time when he plays with the other two members.

Zuo Qi Bo's Statement on Remake of 'Wasurenaide'



Notification Regarding ‘Redundant’

Hi everyone, I am Zuo Qi Bo. Please give me some time to clarify this whole matter.

Regarding the leaking of the song ‘Redundant’ on internet and the causing of TVXQ’s fans unhappiness over the remake of the Japanese song ‘Wasurenaide’ written and composed by Korean singer Kim Jaejoong, I would like to deeply apologise.

I do know that this song carries a lot of your stories and memories and believed that I will join in your big united loving family, because I am the same as you all, liking Kim Jaejoong, liking his talent and vocal. Kim Jaejoong is also my idol and role model at the same time. Therefore we will cautiously settle the problems for this song ‘Redundant’, and we will eagerly try to reach an angreement with Kim Jaejoong himself. Cassiopeia, please be at ease! This song release will currently be freezed and would not be released or sang until an agreement is reached.

Additionally, with regards to ‘Redundant’.
Composed by: Kim Jaejoong
Remake Lyrics by: Zuo Qi Bo/Wei Su
OT: Wasureinaide
This incident is what I did not predicted to be and lack of consideration for the feelings of TVXQ’s fans. I would like to apologise again!!! Hopefully I can receive forgiveness!!!

On the other hand, this incident has nothing to do with Tian Yu Media, Avex Music (Avex China) and SM Entertainment, it is not a resale of Jaejoong’s song by Avex, as said by everyone.
Hoped that everyone can understand. Please don’t blame the unrelated company, you can blame me for everything. Because I chose to sing this song and thus I should be the one to bear the responsibility.
We will assure the composer’s rights and cherish the copyrights!
I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused and troubles! I lacked the consideration when doing things! Sorry!
Thank you! Hopefully everyone can give me a chance! Please don’t pursue this matter again!

T/N: There is supposedly an album to be released on the 18th of July by singer Zuo Qi Bo. He is also a singer under Avex China. The songs were leaked before release and fans realised the remake of Wasurenaide in it, thus have been expressing their unhappiness, questioning if Avex sold this song without Jaejoong’s agreement. Thus, Zuo Qi Bo released this statement on his weibo.
Please note that copyrights issue between the members and company is not an announced matter. We do not know the agreement regarding personal compositions between the members and Avex/SME. Whether Zuo Qi Bo/Avex/Tian Yu Media/SME did sold/transfer/buy/steal Wasurenaide or not, infringement of copyright is still a serious matter.

-------------

Please read this you guys!^^ Don't hate on the poor singer :(

Unclear Whether There Will Be An Appointment Ceremony For JYJ As Honorary Ambassadors for Jeju



Jeju event hosts do not give a clear answer, but instead have aired a (TV) advertisement that declared that “Girls Generation and F(x) Will Appear in the KBS 7 Wonders for Jeju Event” and is thus growing the controversy.

Further, it has become unclear as to whether JYJ’s appointment ceremony as honorary ambassadors will be held or not, and so the dissatisfaction is forecasted to grow. JYJ’s affiliates relayed: “Originally we heard that the appointment ceremony as honorary ambassadors will be held on the 20th, matching the schedule of the performances on the 20th. But as the schedule is entirely cancelled, we do not know what will happen to the appointment ceremony either.”

JYJ Kim Jaejoong also poured out his bitter heart through his Twitter: “If there are obstacles in promoting the wonders of our country, in this case I will promote it even if by myself.”

JYJ's Jaejoong & Fans Promote Jeju Island Despite KBS Cancellation



After JYJ’s appearance on KBS’s Jeju Island special was suddenly cancelled, Jaejoong took it to his personal Twitter account to promote Jeju Island.

Jaejoong tweeted, “If there is an obstacle for me to promote our country’s natural landscape, I’ll promote our country myself.” He then changed his profile picture to a photo of a mountain in Jeju Island.

JYJ was initially confirmed to perform on KBS’s special program to promote Jeju Island as one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World.” Despite the program’s scheduled broadcast date of July 20th, JYJ’s appearance was suddenly cancelled.

On July 16th, C-JeS Entertainment’s homepage was updated with an announcement stating, “JYJ was scheduled to perform on KBS’s Jeju Island special on the 20th, but we have received a notice of cancellation. We have requested an explanation for the cancellation from the organizer.”

Netizens reacted, “I would like to know the exact reason,” “Does it make sense that the ambassadors of Jeju Island don’t appear on the special?”, “I’m going to promote [Jeju Island] too,” and “You didn’t give up, so I won’t give up either.”

In support of Jaejoong, fans of JYJ have began changing their Twitter profile pictures to photos of Jeju Island’s landscape.

Eric Moon is the leader of the group Shinhwa. Shinhwa is well-known as the first and the only one of the “first generation” idols from SM to survive as a unit beyond a certain age. All of Shinhwa, under the lead of Eric, left SM.



Fan: Eric Oppa, what do you think about the things that have happened to JYJ Oppas? What do you think about the things that SM is doing right now, also?

Eric: @Fan1 Erm… I’ll just tell you that things that are very much beyond fans’ thoughts/imagination are happening on this front (the Korean Entertainment industry). You have to win and survive. There is no way other than that.

KBS Jeju Says: "We Cancelled JYJ Because SNSD and F(x) Are More Effective."



“In viewing the program as a whole, Girls Generation and F(x)’s appearances are effective.”

On the cancellation of appearance by JYJ from the Jeju 7 Wonders KBS Special Live Broadcast, KBS Jeju Broadcast Agency (hereafter “KBS Jeju”) revealed its position.

The KBS Jeju affiliate who is producing this broadcast said in the telephone conversation with MyDaily on the afternoon of the 17th relayed that due to the appearance of Girls Generation and F(x) the cancellation of JYJ’s appearance had taken place: “We were propelling the appearance of Girls Generation and F(x) from before but they fell through due to scheduling problems. But at the end of the preparation stages for the broadcast, they said that they could appear. The duty of our broadcast station from the perspective of culture is to introduce many stars to the region’s society. In viewing the program as a whole, we considered just what is effective.”

The affiliate continued: “To the side of JYJ, we respectfully revealed our apologetic position.” He explained further “The group SpringSummerFallWinter will appear as planned. But in this broadcast, aside from SpringSummerFallWinter, Girls Generation, and F(x), other artists such as popera singers are planned to appear.”

The local government of Jeju, who is one of the hosts of the event, revealed through an affiliate on the telephone: “We do not know. What kind of power or abilities would we have to procure a celebrity. It is something that KBS Jeju pursued.”

Further, they relayed that they felt they were falsely charged: “Due to this situation, there are posts of protests raining on the bulletin of Jeju’s local government. But this is not something that we have done.” In particular, Jeju worried about there being potential ill effects on the voting for Jeju as one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

Before this, JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment had revealed through its official webpage on the 16th: “JYJ had been looking forward to appearing on the 20th on the special broadcast as honorary ambassadors for Jeju as a member of the 7 Wonders. But today we suddenly received the notification of cancellation. We have currently requested the precise reason for the sudden cancellation of appearance to the hosts. We ask for your understanding on our sudden announcement of cancellation to the fans who had been waiting. We will soon make an additional announcement after confirming the situation.”

C-JeS's official announcement regarding Jeju

Hello

This is C-JeS Entertainment.

We are announcing our stance on KBS’s one-sided cancellation notification of JYJ’s appearance in KBS Jeju N7W Special Promotional Program.

Mid-April, through a phone call with the Jeju provincial government, we received their wish to appoint JYJ as an honorary ambassador to promoting Jeju’s selection in New 7 Wonders. The date in which we officially received the roles of an honorary ambassador and their reason for selecting JYJ through e-mail was April 26th.

However, it is customary for honorary ambassadors to begin their promotional activities after being appointed through an appointment ceremony and official press statements are released. Because the time in which we received the offer was during JYJ’s World Tour, we first politely declined their initial offer because we would be unable to hold an appointment ceremony.

However, the local government of Jeju-do stated that they were preparing a special broadcast program in July and that because they are preparing an appointment ceremony to be held then, they proposed that JYJ begin their promotional activities [before the ceremony] since they urgently needed publicity. JYJ, as Korea’s artist, accepted the position of honorary ambassador with responsibility in letting the world know of the domestic brand and Jeju’s 7 Wonders.

On May 4th, the Jeju local government notified the appointment of new honorary ambassadors through the press and [JYJ] officially began their promotional activities. JYJ, who was at the time holding their world tour, promoted Jeju Island and actively cooperated by filming videos encouraging on-line and phone voting as honorary ambassadors. Furthermore, last May, Jeju local government sent us a thank you mail stating that Jeju N7W were being publicized nationwide thanks to JYJ. In addition, the special broadcast program was decided to be held on July 20th, and JYJ was supposed to perform two songs and be officially appointed as honorary ambassadors.

However, on July 16th, 4 days before the concert, we received sudden one-sided notification that our appearance on television has been canceled. The reason was, “if JYJ appears, the program itself may not air,” a final notification without specific explanation. Today, although KBS claimed to have apologized to JYJ, we have only received one-sided cancellation and never an apology with official explanation.

We believe the broadcasting networks have the right to decide on the people that appear for the sake of their program. However, as this program was a special program wishing for Jeju’s appointment as the New 7 Wonders, and since JYJ has been selected as the official honorary ambassadors and have been holding promotional activities for three months, we insist on an official position from Jeju government and KBS regarding this one-sided cancellation notice.

Furthermore, C-JeS Entertainment will report the organizer, who has one-sidedly (without previous consultation with the artist) sent us a cancellation notice 4 days before the performance to the Fair Trade Commission, and will take legal action against this incident where the party promised JYJ a special broadcast program on their appointment ceremony, but deceived the artist by one-sidedly cancelling their appointment ceremony after using them for promotional activities.

Finally, JYJ’s current lawsuit is a civil suit regarding unfair contract with their previous management company, and is in reality, a weak artist’s fight against the unjust nature of exclusive contract, and thus is not a lawsuit which causes social problems or has moral issues. Furthermore, the courts have already decided that while this lawsuit is undergoing, JYJ has the right to resume their activities as free artists.

Most importantly, we apologize to JYJ fans who have received great shock through this unacceptable situation, andregardless of this situation, JYJ will continue to support promoting Jeju’s N7W as Korean citizens.

Thank You.

Jaejoong Twitter Update

Poor bb must be having a hard time *hugs*
(Jaejoong, 11.42pm KST) “Wasurenaide” is neither my song nor anyone else’s song. Because it is the song that belongs to the 5 members of “Tohoshinki.” Therefore, I don’t want it to be sung, neither by one person nor by three people.

…and yet he still doesn’t forget to promote Jeju island T____T



It IS pretty I wanna go to Jeju now..

Park Yoochun's Affection For Kim Jaejoong Has Him Making A 'Fried Chicken Pledge' To Choi Kang Hee

JYJ member Park Yoochun is garnering much attention for texting in to a radio station to support Kim Jaejoong.

Park Yoochun sent a text message to KBS radio Cool FM ‘Choi Kang Hee’s Raise the Volume’ on the 13th. Choi Kang Hee will be acting alongside Kim Jaejoong in the SBS TV drama ‘Protect the Boss’ from the 3rd of August.



Choi Kang Hee read the text, saying, “Mr. 6004! It says, ‘This is Yoochun. I’m enjoying your show. Hwaiting on your upcoming drama and please take good care of Jaejoong hyung,‘” and then commented, “Could this really be Yoochun? Oh, what do I do. His number is right in front of me too. Puahahaha.”

When the text was read out, Park Yoochun sent another one that read, “Thank you for reading my text. I’ll visit once with some fried chicken.” Netizens were split on whether or not it was really Park Yoochun who was texting in, but the opinion that, “Yoochunsa! It really is Park Yoochun,” backed itself up with the fact that the phone number’s last four digits 6004(YookChunSa) sound like Yoochun’s name. Park Yoochun’s Twitter username is 6002themicky, reading ‘Yoochunthemicky’.

To this, netizens said, “Even if it isn’t Park Yoochun, that person better visit Choi Kang Hee with fried chicken”, “This is kind of fun. It’s nice to see the two members’ close relationship”, “Choi Kang Hee is loving this~ Tell me what his number is!”, “It’s great to see him taking care of his hyung.”

Meanwhile, Park Yoochun is currently acting in the MBC TV drama ‘Miss Ripley’ as Song Yoo Hyun.

Has JYJ Become The Symbol of Injustice



Before the commence of JYJ’s topic, there are a few preconditional claims that have to be announced. This is because although the topic that I want to discuss starts with JYJ but the gist of the whole topic is not just about JYJ.
(JaeTime’s T/N: It meant that the discussion and thoughts from the commotion with regards to Korean entertainment agencies and unfair law judgment through the regrouping of JYJ and the lawsuit dispute.)

Preconditional Claim 1: JYJ are idols

JYJ is a new group formed comprising of TVXQ’s Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun and Hero Jaejoong, who left the group. TVXQ has attained the highest spot in the idol industry. This is a status achieved by all members of TVXQ and as an idol, they have their significance and their appearance would meant a significant meaning. Of course at the same time where they have their group of loyal fans, anti-fans would be present as well. Therefore upon any appearance of JYJ-relevant topics, the personal judgement of the issue, fans’ and bystanders’ views have to be clearly differentiated. I do not want to simply discuss about JYJ but to direct at the things happening right now and to talk about my views. Therefore before the beginning of discussion of this issue, We have to understand the slight bias that is present in the term ‘idol’.

Preconditional Claim 2: JYJ are wealthy

JYJ have accumulated lots of wealth. This can be known from the assets that were pronounced in news articles. But the main point of the problem is the unfair contract lawsuit between them and SM. Many people think that given the enormous wealth that JYJ had gotten yet the decision to sue the company was nothing different from being a ungrateful betrayer, with the lack of appreciation towards the company’s initial training for them and instead sarcastically said that themselves are slaves. Whether the truth to this is such, I am not in the position to say anything. But this issue is simple, whether their contract is justifiable or not, the court has its judgment. How much has the trio earned as members of TVXQ, there is no way to certify it now. Stealing 50 thousand away from 100 thousand is the same nature as stealing 50 thousand from 1 million. Because to someone who have earned 1 million, losing that 50 thousand, he would still feel unease.

Thus with these two preconditional claims, no matter they are wealthy people or betrayers, there are no basis. “How will the law be judging it?” This is the most important. Therefore before any conclusion is out, there should not be any clear judgment passed on them. Be it from ethical or law point of view, there are a lot of injustice towards the current JYJ. The weirdest that happened in JYJ’s activities was the unability to appear in news articles, television dramas and not able to participate in variety programmes, in addition to the frequent “sudden cancellation without a reason” incidents. The trio of JYJ recorded QTV’s programme in 24 hours and in the end this programme was unable to be broadcasted by QTV itself. Park Yoochun, who was supposed to attend KBS’s Win Win was canceled, together with this time’s “sudden cancellation” of Jeju island promotional performance even though the receipt of the cue sheet.

Not only such, on normal circumstances when a new drama is due to be broadcasted, the cast of the drama would appear in many variety shows for promotional purposes. But in ‘Miss Ripley’ situation, there are no interview of production company’s press conference from the start, and no appearance of the cast appearing on variety shows such as ‘Come To Play’.

Appearing in drama and news but nowhere to be seen in the entertainment circle, this is obviously an incomprehensible issue. Of course there would be such a situation where fans would express that it is the doing of a certain agency preventing the broadcast, but as the “agency” did not reveal anything, there would not be thoughts of accusations or suspect of the certain agency.

On the contrary, I think the problem lies with the broadcasting company. Because the television company or the news agency would invite guests to make their programmes more interesting. As for drama, the cast’s participation in variety shows would definitely allow the drama to be sold overseas with a higher price.

But the situation of Jeju’s promotional performance is completely different. With them being appointed as ambassadors, they have greatly influenced the promotional effects but was yet omitted in performance. The sudden cancellation was incomprehensible, especially when the schedule was already confirmed. There are lots of overseas fans who have planned to fly over to Korea for this public performance and this has worsen the problem. It feels so regretful especially when this happened in national-managed broadcasting company KBS.

Pre-appointed ambassadors scheduled performance was yet suddenly canceled without any special reason, this is obviously an injustice issue. Gaining the promotional effects and omitting them in the end, this shows the vile side of the establishment. This has to be brought up together with the harm inflicted to many fans. This is not what a national-managed television company should do.

The invisible backdoor pressure rumours were unbelievable. It is obvious that there is special reason and this reason have caused the cancellation. Before any judgment by the court is passed, there should not be any obstruction to their entertainment activities. Korea is a lawful country. In Korea, it is unimaginable to know of power who disregard law and there are no way to confirm if such power existed. If they say that there are not outside pressure, then wouldn’t it be impossible to stop the broadcasting based on one’s effort?

Therefore I hoped that KBS television company will give a proper explanation to this sudden cancellation of JYJ’s broadcasting. What is the exact reason for canceling JYJ’s broadcast. I hoped to receive a convincible reason.

Hopefully KBS can relay to the public the message that “Republic of Korea is a lawful society and there are no injustice.” If KBS’s reason is not convincible, that would be very regretful, very pitiful. This proves that under the law of our Republic of Korea, there are still certain power existing or that KBS has to depend on certain establishment’s power to produce programmes. If it is really so, then undoubtedly, JYJ has bear the injustice sacrifice and they have became the symbol of injustice.

"They Appointed them as Honorary Ambassadors and then Used Them!" JYJ's Legal Battle on Full-Scale

The cancellation notice of KBSʼs TV special on 7 World Wonders…protest comment call Jeju a disgrace.



Appointed as honorary ambassadors to the 7 World Wonders, Hallyu Wave stars JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu), have sparked controversy among thousands of people over clarification for the cancellation of their performances by KBS as well as recent legal action.

With JYJʼs agencyʼs legal action as well as the storm of protests from fans, a strike against the image of [Jeju] island is inevitable.

On the 16th, JYJʼs entertainment agency, CJeS, reported that they received a unilateral notification regarding the cancellation of participation in the KBS Jeju Special Broadcast.

Last May, Jeju officially appointed Hallyu Stars JYJ as GoodWill Ambassadors of the 7 World Wonders in order to improve voter participation throughout Asia.

The date in which CJeS received an email confirming JYJʼs roles as honorary ambassadors as well as the reasons behind why they were chosen was April 26th.



Because at the time JYJ were on their world tour and would not be able to participate in appointment procedures, CJeS declined the offer.

However, Jeju stated that there would be a special program in July in which appointment procedures would be carried out in, and asked for JYJ to begin promotions for Jeju since they needed higher publicity.

On May 4th, the Jeju Island Government released through the press a statement about appointing [JYJ as] their new Honorary Ambassadors.

KBS then scheduled a TV broadcast entitled “Wishing for the 7 World Wonders” to be held on July 20th.

JYJ originally was to participate in this Special Jeju Broadcast concert, performing two of their songs.

However, on the 16th, 4 days before the performance, CJeS was delivered a sudden unilateral notification of cancellation from KBS.



CJeS stated “The reason we received was that if JYJ appears, it might not be possible to air the program” and that “JYJ has been active in their promotion duties, however we have received a unilateral cancellation notice from KBS Jeju.”

They followed by saying “Since the program, Wishing for 7 World Wonders, was meant to be for the appointment of JeJu and also because JYJ have been selected as honorary ambassadors for this cause and have been promoting for 3 months, we require an official position regarding the cancellation.”

CJeS said “we will report KBS Jeju, who have sent a unilateral cancellation notification, to the Korean Fair Trade Comission”

Because of such news, Jeju, the Jeju Provisional Government, and the Jeju official forums, have been hit with with a storm of negative comments.

Indignant commenters stated “This kind of behavior is an embarrassment to the citizens of Jeju and should not be shown again” as well as “I am now canceling my plane tickets to Jeju and have no plans of revisiting in the future!”

CJeS said in this regard “We will take legal action against this situation, in which JYJ were promised to be included in a special broadcast program for their appointment, but were cheated by a unilateral cancellation after they were used for promotional purposes”.

In addition they stated “JYJʼs current lawsuit is a civil lawsuit based on unfair contracts.” and “no matter the situation, as Korean citizens, JYJ will continue to promote Jeju for the 7 World Wonders”

Some comments left by Korean netizens on this article include: “There is a lack of common sense, this is indeed absurd”

“Ambassadors who work hard to promote for urgent publicity as well as gather fans support will get a unilateral cancellation notification from KBS as well? It seems the KBS Public Broadcast and the Jeju Provincial Government are really promoting fraud and deceit”

“I am a fan of JYJ and really disappointed what happened. I donʼt think I will visit JEJU again, never” (english comment)

HITT Say, "TVXQ's Imitators? We'll Show Our Own Color"



There is a male idol group that has been in the spotlight even before their debut because of the fact that Sony Music, a global music company, participated in their making. They take on ballads, dance songs, hip hop and even a capella. They seem to be similar to the nation’s best idol group that debuted in 2003, TVXQ, in some ways. TVXQ began as an a capella group and later started the generation of evolving idols.

Here are others who dream of becoming evolving idols. Male idol group HITT debuted on the 6th with the album ‘Here Is The Top’ and are currently performing their title song ‘Good night’. HITT is the acronym for ‘Here Is The Top’, which shows the determination of the members to work hard to get to the top.

With leader Hayong at the core, the group is composed of members Hyun Joon, Joon Taek, Wooram, Jae Hoon and Ho Won. Their vocal talents surpass that of other any other idol group, with five of the six members taking on the role of the vocal of the group.

(omitted)

◆TVXQ are their role model… They will not be remembered as imitators
HITT’s role models are TVXQ. Ho Won said, “TVXQ’s vocal talents and dance skills are outstanding,” and “They’re role models we want to emulate.” Hayong also added, “TVXQ are the direction and destination we’re headed for,” and “But we won’t be remembered as imitators of TVXQ, we’ll do things that they haven’t done before and show our own color.” Jae Hoon said, “I want us to be remembered as HITT, not the 2nd so-and-so,” and “I don’t want us to merely imitate, I want us to show our own style to the masses.”

Currently, the idol market is heavily saturated. Countless idol groups are sweating it out even at this moment, fighting for that top position. This is why HITT need to establish their own unique color.

Wooram said, “I want to hear that it would be a waste for our group to just stay in Korea.” Ho Won added, “I want us to be called evolutionary idols who have perfect dancing and vocal skills.” Last of all, Hyun Joon said, “We will become a group who don’t forget our beginning, even if we get to the top.”

Zhuo Qi Bo's Apology To Cassiopeia



To have caused so much inconvenience to all of you, I sincerely apologise! I’m sorry!

I would also like to apologise for my error in spelling for “Cassiopeia.”

Please do not blame any companies, because I represent myself, and it has nothing to do with them.

I chose the song, and it is currently being removed in large quantities. This may take some time, and it so happens that it is a weekend.

I believe that we will remove the song as quickly as possible, and with sincerity, returning to your idol the song that belongs to him.

I also hope that everyone can stop (pursuing) this matter.

Rest assured that the song will definitely be removed!

Please give me some time.

(T/N: In Chinese, Cassiopeia is“仙后” but apparently he made a mistake and called them “仙贝”(Senbei) instead. )

JYJ's Appearance Is Suddenly Cancelled...Is It SM's Doing Again?

Popular group JYJ received a notice today that their concert appearance has been cancelled without prior warning. The concert they were schedule to appear in is the ‘KBS Special Live Show Supporting Jeju’s 7 Wonders Nomination’ that is to be held on the 20th.

CEO Baek Chang Joo of C-JeS Entertainment stated, “We suddenly received the notice today(16th) and even I don’t know the reason behind the cancellation.” JYJ have been active as honorary ambassadors for Jeju’s 7 Wonders Nomination for the past month. They’ve been quite active, singing a logo song and recording videos, asking fans to vote for Jeju. This upcoming performance was meant to be another promotional activity for them as honorary ambassadors.



In a phone conversation with ‘OhmyNews’, one of JYJ’s public relations representatives stated, “We’ve already received the cue sheet for the performance and bought plane tickets as well,” and “We are taken aback by this cancellation as JYJ rescheduled other activities to make room for the performance, thinking of the event as a duty to their nation, regardless of the fact that the members are very busy right now because of activities such as the two members’ filming schedules for their dramas.” He continued to say, “We are frustrated because it feels like JYJ’s scarcity and their fandom’s powerful influence has been used and thrown aside.”

This representative continued to raise controversies over the issue by stating, “The manager who talked to KBS was told, ‘The event might become impossible if JYJ appear.’” JYJ have had restrictions placed on their activities in the entertainment industry since their legal dispute with their former entertainment agency began, unable to appear on variety shows of the three main broadcasting companies of Korea.

Currently, JYJ and their representatives are waiting for the reason why the group’s performance has been cancelled. On the 16th, C-JeS Entertainment posted an official notice on their homepage that said, “We ask for your understanding of our situation of having to notify the fans, who have been waiting for this performance, of the sudden cancellation, and we will post another notice as soon as possible once we have confirmed the details behind the situation.”

As Jeju press, such as ‘The Sound of Jeju’ and ‘Jeju Daily’, have already reported JYJ’s performance on the 20th, KBS’ move to prohibit JYJ’s appearance is expected to have a great impact in the industry.

CEO Baek Chang Joo stated, “We will post another official notice as soon as possible as there are fans who have already purchased plane tickets to Jeju, and please look out for further updates on the issue.”

Jeju Island’s Seven Natural Wonders of the World industry is an event sponsored by the ‘New 7 Wonders’ Foundation and has been controversial in terms of the foundation’s identity as well as the industry’s economic effect.

Voting for the Seven Natural Wonders of the World will end on November 1st.

"JYJ Performance Cancellation" When will KBS's disgrace of the 7 world wonders be addressed?



The impact of the unilateral cancellation of JYJ’s performance by KBS Jeju and Jeju island is growing larger.

On July 17th, The 7 World Wonders project, lead by the New7Wonders Foundation, sent a tweet on their official twitter to KBS stating “To all our friends in Korea, time to kiss and make up!” in regards to the protests.

They also followed by sending a tweet of praise to JYJ member, Kim Jaejoong, saying “that is the right spirit!”


KBS’s controversial unilateral cancellation notice towards JYJ prompted Kim Jaejoong to tweet “If there are obstacles in prompting our own country’s natural scenery, then under these conditions I will have to promote it by myself” as well as changing his profile photo to a picture of Jeju’s landscape, causing much praise for his actions.

Last May the Jeju Provincial Government and the New7Wonders Foundation appointed JYJ to be Honorary Ambassadors for Jeju in the 7 World Wonders campaign. JYJ were to appear on July 20th as part of the KBS Jeju Special Broadcast Concert. But on the 16th, four days before the show, KBS issued a notice of cancellation to JYJ. There was not a clear reason stated, but it was also announced that SNSD and f(x) would be making an appearance.

A representative of KBS Jeju stated “In our final stages of our broadcast preparation, our plans for SNSD and f(x)’s appearances became possible and we have expressed out greatest apologies to JYJ’s representatives”. However Cjes, who is in charge of JYJ’s management, have said “we have yet to receive an apology”, leading to a second controversy.

Netizens have voiced out in anger, stating “This is an international embarrassment” and “I do not understand what is going on. If you knew from the beginning this would happen, why did you use them?”

N7W News Front Page Site: JYJ's Kim Jaejoong: "I'll just promote Jeju myself!"



According to media reports, popular K-pop trio JYJ plan to file a complaint against Korean TV station KBS for cancelling the group’s scheduled TV appearance on Wednesday night in a concert to promote Jeju Island, which hopes to be one of the New7Wonders of Nature. In May, JYJ became honorary ambassadors for Jeju.

Responding to the KBS cancellation, band member Kim Jaejoong tweeted: “If there’s an obstacle in the way blocking the promotion of our country’s natural landscape then I’ll just promote it myself.” He then added: “@gentlechan If 100,000 people tweet a picture of Jeju Island, won’t at least 20 million people learn of it?” Kim Jaejoong also changed his Twitter profile picture to a picture of Jeju Island.


The KBS cancellation is seen in some quarters as collateral damage in a broader battle between JYJ and SM Entertainment, an independent Korean record label, talent agency, producer and publisher of pop music. A Soompi.com profile of SM Entertainment founder, Lee Soo Man, created the picture of an ambitious, visionary K-pop figure, who is not afraid to drive a hard bargain

“However, there are also some concerns over SME’s growing control over the entire industry. One of them is the on-going lawsuit with JYJ, or the three former members of DBSK. Since the fallout from DBSK last year over contract disputes with SME, JYJ has not been able to land much TV spots nor freely promote their album in Korea — and many fans suspect SME might be putting ‘backdoor pressure’ on local broadcasters as well as industry officials in order to hamper the trio’s promotions as a group. There’s no proof to it, but the recent controversy over KBS and JYJ may also be an indication to the ‘backdoor pressure,’ since JYJ was replaced by SNSD and f(x), two SM artists, on a special KBS TV show. It was reported that KBS abruptly canceled JYJ’s scheduled appearance on its special show for Jeju Island’s Seven Wonders Concert, four days prior to the live broadcast, and JYJ is currently planning to file a compliant as well as a lawsuit over this issue.”

Despite the dispute, JYJ management, C-JeS Entertainment, stated on Allkpop.com: “JYJ will be cheering on Jeju Island’s effort, regardless of the current situation.”

"Good-looking guys must must be good at 'smiling with their eyes'?": Park Yoochun and Lee Min Ho Prove it

Recently, a picture of actor Lee Min Ho and JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun smiling with their eyes is uploaded on an online community photo gallery, making female fans’ hearts flutter.



Their smiles are known as best smiles. In SBS’s drama series City Hunter, Lee Min Ho often expresses apathetic faces while playing Yun Seong; however, he smiles brightly with his eyes almost closely when the camera is not running.

On the other hand, Park Yoo Chun, who plays Song Yu-hyeon in MBC’s drama series Miss Ripley, also features a cute smile with his eyes in a formal suit.

Netizens comment: “I guess good-looking guys must be good at smiling with their eyes.” “Their smile…. Oh my gosh.” “They are charismatic and cute.” “They are really attractive.”

Kim Jaejoong, "This Anxiety Developed That Is Similar To Andropause Symptom...It Is A Good Thing"



As the top singer in Republic of Korea, how is the feeling about debuting as a new actor? JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong will be acting as a chaebol successor in SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect The Boss’, challenging his first role in domestic drama. Topics such as comparison to Hyun Bin in SBS’s ‘Secret Garden’ starts the conversation.

Kim Jaejoong said, “It feels like the time when I was a newbie debuting, I think the the crucial part is to adapt to the environment. 10 years of activities and I feel as though I have reached andropause, it is both body and mentally exhausting. Although there are a lot of pressure and burden debuting as an actor, as compared to that, this development of anxiety… it feels good.” Kim Jaejoong’s straighforwardness and honesty were felt through the interview.

Why did you choose to debut as an actor through ‘Protect The Boss’?

After acting in Japanese drama ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’ last year, I have no hurry to plan about acting in domestic drama or movie, thus I thought and researched about it with due considerations. But the schedules and timing were not suitable thus good works were shelved. But after I received the script for ‘Protect The Boss’, I have strong feelings for it suddenly. The plot is very interesting and I feel that the role suits me.


The comparison of “Cold Urban Guy” Cha Mu Won and Hyun Bin

Although Cha Mu Won is good with business and treats others gentlemanly, he always gave a cold and cool impression to others. A bit mysterious too. The role of being a chaebol’s successor is similar to Hyun Bin’s Kim Joo Won but there are differences in the acting and personality.

How do you grade your own acting currently?

This, about 1 mark? I’m still unable to rate my own acting right now. I do not wish to leave an impression to everyone that my acting is a distance from the veterans during filming. I hoped to reduce this difference and co-operate better with the veteran actors.

The prediction for the viewer ratings is…

The higher the better! Keke~~ The previous slot ‘City Hunter’ has very good results, so our ‘Protect The Boss’ shouldn’t “shrink” right. Rather than consideration for the viewer ratings, I would like to place my emphasis on leveling up my acting.

How is the atmosphere at the filming site?

Although I am the youngest at the filming site, Ji Sung hyung holds the role of the atmosphere-creator. I want to receive praises from the veteran actors through good acting. Cha Hwa Yong Sunbae and Teacher Park Yong Kyu, they have given me a lot of opinions and suggestions. When reading of the lines, I tend to laugh and the atmosphere is really amicable.



Harsh words said to sasaeng fans (stalking fans)

Sasaeng fans have their wrongdoings for sure, but there are also lots of problems that lies with some of the rented car drivers which makes us worried. They persuades those who waited for us in front of our house and the overseas fans who followed us. “This is nothing, it is okay to follow them. If found out, just don’t continue to follow, it will do.” Once they catch up on us, it is difficult to get rid of them. Speeding up is dangerous. It is a common sight to follow us on highway till Gyeonggi-do.

The 2 months long world tour has successfully concluded.

This tour is very interesting. After it ended, members and staffs were very happy. Sang our own compositions, and personally involved in the production, and no additional help from other companies, we are very happy, and very proud!

Activities in Japan is still difficult

Not long ago, we held a charity concert for the earthquake relief in Japan. To the members who were able to have a performance in Japan after a long while, it was a very meaningful matter. Although we were pressurized by our ex-company in Japan, and the lots of problems appeared, but we did not mind and I think we would have a lot of issues to settle in the future.

It is still unable to find JYJ’s albums in the record stores in Japan

We are deeply affected by it on why is our JYJ’s album not able to be sold on the market. As a hallyu forerunner, we are saddened by this issue. If we can put in more effort and time and would be able to withstand these tests, then I think we will insist to work hard till the end. If things are still not able to resolve, we would want to apologize to our Japanese fans.

You sang Im Jae Bum’s For You at the concert in Japan and this create a topic

After singing For You at the concert, Im Jae Bum sunbae sang it again in the programme ‘I Am Singer’ and also attracted attention and topics. Although it is not my own song but I was very happy about it. I would like to hold a concert with remake songs or to produce a rock genre album.

Is there anyone you are dating? What’s your ideal type?

Right now there’s no one. There is a big change in my thoughts regarding the opposite sex. In the past, if I were to date with my girlfriend, I would spend a lot of time preparing some gifts, write letters or write a diary and give it as a present to her on our anniversary. But I do not wish to spend time on this now. Am I going to transform into a bad guy? Hahaha. In the past, there would be pre-requisites for my ideal type but there are none now. I think I need a long time to understand the opposite party well.

The Chinese translation where we got this article has 12 Q&As while we can’t find the 12th Q&A in the original Korean article, thus we also decided not to reveal the 12th Q&A in account of its lack of reliability.

Unauthorized Remake of JYJ's Jaejoong Composed Song by Chinese Artist

T/N: The reporter of this article was not aware that the Chinese artist in question, Zhuo Qi Bo, might not actually be an official AVEX artist. Please take any mention of Qi Bo being part of the AVEX family lightly, as we do not know the full case so far.



Kim Jaejoong, a member of the group JYJ, is involved in the controversy of the year over an unauthorized remake of his self-composed song that has been made by a Chinese singer.

Zhuo Qi Bo (Ray Cho), a member of AVEX group China, relased two songs, one of which fans found the chorus to be strikingly similar to Kim Jaejoong’s composed song, TVXQ’s “Wasurenaide”. Fans complained that the remake was created by Zhuo Qui Bo without discussion or permission from Kim Jaejoong’s side, which prompted a quick apology and explanation from Qi Bo.


Zhou Qi Bo wrote in an entry on weibo “Regarding the unhappiness of fans over the remake of Kim Jaejoong’s self-composed Japanese song “Wasurenaide”, I want to greatly apologize. I know for many of you this song carries precious stories and memories, and I believe I can join you in that thought, because I am also a fan of Kim Jaejoong and his talents. He is not only my idol, but also my role model, so therefore I will carefully handle all matters for this song “Redundant” and will try to form a consensus”.

However, the fans continued to ask AVEX for an apology over the matter. Chinese JYJ fans have been searching for proper credit of copyright and composition rights over this matter. Fans have even created a signature campaign, entitled “Protect Jaejoong’s Right to Wasurenaide”.

In response to this situation, Kim Jaejoong wrote a tweet in Japanese stating “Wasurenaide is not mine, nor any singular person’s song. It is a song that belongs to the 5 members of TVXQ, therefore I do not want only one or three people to sing it”.

“Is there any deal to be made in the future?” is the question OSEN (T/N: the reporting company who wrote this article) has to ask. “It seems as though in China remakes without prior approval happen quite often”. However, for now, no legal action has been taken in this matter.

JYJ Members Expressed Their Feelings With Regards To Performance's Cancellation



JYJ members revealed their feeling with regards to cancellation of their performance in KBS “Wish for 7 Wonders – KBS Special 5 Live”. Representative company CJeS Entertainment stated that Jeju’s honorary ambassador JYJ was slated to perform 2 songs at the “Wish for 7 Wonders – KBS Special 5 Live” and to go through the ambassador appointment ceremony on the 20th, but they received the broadcast cancellation notice on the 16th.

JYJ Kim Jaejoong tweeted on the 16th with, “If there are going to be obstacles blocking us from promoting our nation’s natural wonder, then this time, I’ll just promote it alone (like this).” He tweeted again on the wee hours of the morning on 18th with, “I don’t believe that the 7 Natural Wonders of the World Declaration Committee chooses beautiful locations in the world as a means of publicity for the profit and losses of a specific nation. Finding beautiful things in the world is a “happiness” that everyone in the world shares. Wouldn’t the purpose of choosing these natural wonders be to preserve them for a long time? But if there are complicated conditions existing beyond this significance, then the simpleness ..of everyone finding happiness will not be a smooth road.” Kim Junsu also expressed on his Twitter, “We cross mountain after mountain.. but ahead looms another one” and “Why are you all sorry.. we’re the ones who should be sorry”
(T/N: all tweet translations are credited to dongbangdata.net)


CJeS Entertainment stated through their homepage that JYJ was supposed to be appointed as ambassadors through the Special broadcast but with Jeju’s local government proceeding with the promotional activities, they (CJeS) officially announced their stance that “In this situation where there are no negotiations with the artistes and performance was one-sidedly canceled just four days before, we will file a complaint to Korea Fair Trade Commission.” CJeS Entertainment has yet to hear any response from Jeju’s local government or KBS Jeju.

On the other hand, KBS had ever stated in their homepage’s message board regarding JYJ’s unability to perform on KBS Music Bank that it is due to the on-going lawsuit between JYJ and ex-company SM Entertainment and yet contracted with current representative company. They also stated, “The continuation of allowing JYJ to perform would cause legal problems and damage the cultural development and order. Until the judgment between JYJ and their company is passed or a mutual agreement is agreed upon, broadcasting activities will be stopped as what was stated before and would be further discussed depending on the judgment.” They further explained that, “The stance before the judgment of invalidity of the contract was a mistake in our management.”
(T/N: This refers to KBS’s change of stance stating that “the previous ‘restriction’ stance was in February.” They later on released another statement that JYJ would be able to appear when they release a new album since JYJ did not released an album since February.)

Fan Account - KBS Music Bank Japan

I arrived late at the venue yesterday due to the hot weather and another thing was, I wanted to prevent myself from over purchasing their merchandise. The subway station near the venue was crowded with fans, when I got out from there, the red sea of BIGEAST blankets flooded my field of vision. The blankets were pretty. I would like to have one, but I couldn’t afford it. Japanese fans were too rich... I couldn’t compete with them...

Squeezing through the crowd, and after racking my brains to find a way to smuggle in my camera, I succeeded in doing so! But... unexpectedly, a staff appeared and stood in front of me throughout the concert =.= So, sorry, no photos from me...

I turned around in my seat to look at the venue. There were too many red towels and red glow sticks around me that I thought I was at Tohoshinki’s concert.

So, the concert began with KARA’s performance. (omitted)

I was a bit worried of Homin before they appeared on stage, as other groups like UKISS, BEAST had received tremendous support from the crowd. When it was SNSD’s turn, one could easily notice that they had the highest popularity. Especially during the song ‘Gee’, the fans were chanting ‘Gee’ along throughout the whole song. Frankly speaking, I was a bit worried of how would it turn out to be when it was Homin’s turn. Well, the fact proved that my worry was a complete waste of imagination! When the word ‘Tohoshinki’ appeared on big screen, I jumped off from my seat, pulled down the towel which hanging around my neck, turned on the glow stick, and shrieked! A primary school kid beside me was startled by my reaction. In his mind, I must have transformed into some kind of monster.

The songs performed by Homin were Before You Go and Why. At first my eyes only fixed on Homin. Then, unintentionally I turned my view to the audience and I was surprised to find out I was in the middle of red sea! Tears crept into my eyes. The venue which was initially composed by various colours of glowstick, had turned into a sea of red! As I recall what I saw before the starting of concert, I realised each person had 2 different colours of glowsticks in their hands, and one of them was red! Everyone seemed to have reached an agreement to turn on their red glowstick at the same time!

I was overwhemled with mixed emotions! I was both happy and sad at the same time! I wanted to tell them badly: Look! There are still so many people supporting you! There are still a lot of us waiting for you, we never forget about you! The most beautiful red sea will be always and only for you! Please come back together! Five of you!

It was the most enjoyable moment to be able to watch Yunho and Changmin singing on stage, while immersed in the red ocean.

After two songs, Yunho greeted us, ‘How are you? It has been a long time (then paused for a while)... Dome!’
I could feel the nostalgic feeling hidden underneath when he said the word Dome.
My memories flashed back to their 4th Live Tour, the same place where five of them ever standing together, singing ‘Begin’, singing ‘Wasurenai’...
I burst into tears... Not only me, but the cassies around me as well...

After few words from Changmin, whilst everyone was still trying to figure out what would be the next song, the introduction music of the next song was played. It was Rising Sun!
‘Why? Why is this song?’ while I was chanting along, I couldn’t stop myself from crying. T.T The other cassies and I, our initially low hiccuping sobs became loud cries.
The cheering for Tohoshinki was the loudest. Two Sone who sat 2 seats away from me couldn’t help but kept on praising, ‘They are awesome! They are Tohoshinki in fact!’
I thought I have heard Jaejoong & Junsu singing in harmony in the background music. When reaching Yoochun’s rap, for a moment I thought I saw Yoochun singing on stage.
As if time has flown backwards and stopped by the moment they were holding their 2nd & 3rd Live Tour...

Yunho, after witnessing the red ocean, thanked us, ‘Thanks for giving us so much support! But this is not our concert, so please support the other groups as well! Thank you very much!’

Yunho ah! Is the support we gave you has made you feel like you are having your own concert?

(omitted)

I couldn’t hold back my tears even after the concert ended. I might have happily enjoyed their performance till the end and not crying a river now if they didn’t perform Rising Sun. It was too heartbreaking just to listen to it.
Despite of getting sorethroat after all the shouting and cheering, I feel satisfied. I’m looking forward to the a-nation which will be held on 27th of August!

Tohoshinki... When are you going to hold your own concert? I have been waiting for it...

We have not thrown away our hearts


Who did those things… I am surprised by the lack of delicacy to protect the magazine, and also the lack of risk management.…

But, do you think that those who were involved in the filming have all thrown away their hearts?

The person who wrote the wonderful article.. the person who took these nice photos..do you think that they will abandon it as a whole?

There are ones who bow to the pressure…it cannot be helped, and we cannot blame them.
On the contrary, there are ones who have the strong will, that they would never bow to those pressures.

For instance, the charity concert in June… it was realized by the ones who will not bow to pressure, though they have become weary (T/N: in order to realize the concert).

The people who are supporting the 3 members are those kinds of people.
Same as the 3 members who are climbing up a steep mountain. They are climbing up steeper mountains. Please do keep that in your mind.

No blames to those who spread the pictures.
They should have been sad thinking that the pictures were thrown away.
Maybe it was anger, that such things should not be overlooked.
Maybe they wanted everyone to see their carefree smiles.
Maybe they wanted the public to know about the article and photos, full of the 3 members' feelings.

But I am very sorry that…the article and photo which was waiting for its turn (which should come soon), was distributed in its torn shape worldwide.

No, no, please do not be sad… I have written by myself, too.
We should enjoy the steep mountains!!!

Because, we can see the light beyond the mountains.

CEO Max is Forced to Shut Down His Twitter



avex CEO Mr. Matsuura's twitter is under fire…he is forced to shut down his Twitter


14:08 July 19 (Tues), 2011

The CEO of avex, Mr. Masato Matsuura’s twitter is under fire, and he is forced to shut down his twitter.

There was a suspicion that a Chinese singer stole a song composed by Jaejoong (ex-member of Tohoshinki, currently a member of JYJ). There was a rumor on the internet that it was an act of Mr. Matsuura (and those around him). In regard to this, Mr. Matsuura said on the 17th that "I don't have anything to do with it, and I don't know anything about it. But there are those who send me childish complains anonymously, selfishly misunderstanding the situation. It sucks, and also lame... This time, we are the victims. Thanks for your understanding." (T/N: pls click for the trans here.) And receiving slander comments continuously, he tweeted, "There is no meaning doing such things, so I will be off from twitter, excluding the time I'll be uploading my photos!"

After that, his followers sent "Please do not quit", but he responded by "But, some jy (T/N: twitter user's account name) said I should quit (Lol)". Some of the fans on twitter exploded their anger. "Don't call the group name like that, you are the CEO" "Keep in mind of your position". They also send other attacking comments, and Mr. Matsuura's twitter became an exchange of words, and thus, under fire. Mr. Matsuura responded to many comments of his followers saying "I cannot leave this untouched." Afterwards he tweeted "Thank you for everything up to today. There are stupid persons like me (Lol). I am happy that there are those who understood a stupid person like me, and also, understood somewhat of my few good points, too. So,for the time being, good bye" "So, see you!"

There are contractual problems between avex and JYJ, and there are various conjectures on the internet concerning avex and JYJ.

An An Interview: which was 'supposed' to be out in May



JJ: I can feel it. Very much. They fly from Japan to the venues or events. A lot of fans came to Junsu’s musical, and also to Yoochun’s drama film site. They are so passionate on both Twitter and internet, that I can feel they are waiting for us…

JS: There was some moments when it was harder because of the fans’ love… It made us want to go, go to Japan, and meet with all fans. Also felt sorry too.

Q. How does it feel different with when you were active in Japan?

JS: (Thinking carefully) The feelings is not that different.Being active as a singer in Japan…(can’t read well)..eh..I really want to do my best. Like I did before, it feels like..starting it over again..

YC: I would just like to be able to work normally as before… we can’t right now because there are some little problems.. I want to be on a tour in Japan again too. Tour..and other things besides tour. I also want to have many, many chances to meet with the fans.


Q. You had concerts not only in Korea or Asia, but also in the U.S. What’s your plan now?

JJ: It’s not decided. We will be on a worldtour starting in April, and when it ends, that’ll be the start.

Q. Jaejoonssi, you’re the worldtour director, right?

JJ: Ah, yes! I think up the specific formation, or make the set list. The live we had in Seoul last year was the first time. The change in performance and songs’ order when the song was a bit (can’t read). I hope it goes well.

Q. You guys also make (can’t read).

YC: Hmm..I don’t think much about it. I try it when I get a thought “let my try~”

Q. When do you feel happiest now?

YC: Everyday. I can go out with my friends or family. Now I have the time to do it. Because that became possible, I became more generous to myself(translator’s note: he means he became more relaxed)

JS: For me..well..I think there are different kinds of happiness, but I’m the happiest when I’m on the stage, singing. Now I have less chances to feel that kind of happiness…Including stages in Japan, I hope we could get more chances to sing on many stages…I’d like to feel the happiness coming from that.

Q. Last December 31st, you three sang “Found You” at KBS Acting Awards, where Yoochun was awarded the Rookies of the Year

YC: Yes. Shortly.
JS: I was nervous, since it was the first time we sang on TV last year^^

Q. How did you feel?

JS: It was kinda strange…of course I was happy. I was sad of myself, feeling ‘sad’ with this difficult, but single appearance. But I was glad to congratulate Yoochun. I wanted to think happy things only.

JJ: I think it was good in a way, making me think again performing on a stage is not something “normal” but “very very precious” to an artist. That meant very…much to the three of us. I could feel many things from it, so I thought maybe I’m a grownup than two years ago.. Because the things I thought was natural turned out to be not.

JS: (can’t read)..but you fans are supporting us…

KBS explains reasons behind the cancellation of JYJ's appearance on 'N7W'



KBS representatives recently explained the official reason behind the sudden cancellation of JYJ’s appearance on KBS’s ‘Jeju 7 New Wonders of World KBS Special Live‘ that left JYJ and its many fans upset and confused.

KBS officials told Sports Korea, “Until the 3 members of JYJ finish their lawsuit with SM Entertainment, it will be difficult to appear on KBS.”

JYJ had planned to sing two songs on the stage, but on July 17th JYJ’s agency, C-JeS received notification that their appearance was canceled just 4 days before their scheduled performance. C-JeS also received notification that, “If JYJ makes an appearance, the broadcast itself is impossible“, raising concerns of the possibility of ‘backdoor pressure‘.

However, the representative stated, “The personal activities of the members of JYJ are possible. For example, Park Yoochun’s appearance on KBS’s ‘Sugkyunkwan Scandal‘ happened.” But past events still point to the fact that KBS has also obstructed their personal activities.

For example, Park Yoochun was invited as the ‘unknown guest star’ by actor Kim Kap Soo on KBS’s ‘Kim Seung Woo is Doing Just Fine‘ due to their close relationship on ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’. However, one day before the recording, it was reported there was a misfire. As a result, Yoochun was not allowed to appear on the program.

A representative explained, “That day Park Yoochun was not alone, because it was more for publicity for JYJ.” Another representative told Sports Korea, “Park Yoochun was invited by his co-star in ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, Kim Kap Soo. There was no reason for JYJ to appear.”

Meanwhile, on July 19th, JYJ fans began a signature campaign asking for both an apology and clear explanation for the cancellation of JYJ’s appearance.

Ji Sung Voluntarily Revealed 'Big-Head Embarrassment' Photo. To Be Said In Exact, It's Twice of JYJ Kim Jaejoong's?



Actor Ji Sung self-revealed a big-head embarrassment photo and provided light laughters online in this hot weather.

On the 19th, Ji Sung revealed on his Me2day with the words, “Erm… Should I reveal this photo? I hesitated…” He followed on saying, “First of all, this is done by the staff, it’s too hilarious! Thus I courageously posted this up in order to make you all laugh in this hot summer. Hahahaha,” and so this photo is revealed.

In the photo, the other appearance with Ji Sung is JYJ’s Jaejoong. Jaejoong’s head is normal sized and the obviously enlarged head of Ji Sung left everyone in laughters. In it, Jaejoong coldly looked at Ji Sung while Ji Sung had a ‘mong’ look, (T/N: as in dazed, spaced-out look.) looking down with a subtle expression, gaining many netizens’ laughters.

Netizens expressed, “It is really hilarious.”, “As compared to the size of the heads, the two’s expressions are even funnier.”, “It’s too adorable.”, “Next time, please also revealed Jaejoong oppa’s enlarged version, please.”,”Protect the boss, fighting!” etc.

Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong are currently working on filming SBS drama ‘Protect The Boss’ that is broadcasting on the 3rd of August.

AVEX CEO Max Matsuura Closes Twitter Account Due To JYJ Fans?



After getting flooded with comments from angry fans, it appears as if avex Entertainment CEO Max Matsuura has shut down his official Twitter account.

The comments began coming in when fans discovered that a Chinese singer named Ray Chou – who is signed with avex – seems to have plagiarized a song written by JYJ’s Jaejoong without his explicit consent. The song in question is “Wasurenaide“, from Tohoshinki’s last album as a five-member group, “The Secret Code“.

When made aware of the issue, Jaejoong himself made a comment in Japanese over Twitter. “‘Wasurenaide’ isn’t my song or anyone else’s song. It’s a song by the five-member Tohoshinki. So I don’t want one person or three people to sing it,” he tweeted on July 17th.

Meanwhile, Matsuura had been bombarded with tweets from JYJ fans demanding an explanation for the issue with Ray Cho. “It’s something I’m entirely unrelated to and don’t know about, but there are people willfully misunderstanding what I actually did and making anonymous, immature complaints to me. It hurts, and it’s cold… In this case I’m the victim, so treat me favorably,” he tweeted on the 17th. He also responded to another particularly slanderous comment by replying, “Since there’s no reason why I’d do things like those, I’m taking a break from Twitter without so much as a photo!”



These tweets inflamed fans even more, causing them to leave him further tweets like, “I’ll stop when we get even for JYJ (lol)” and “You’re the president of the company, but you call out a group like that,” all directing their frustration over the matter towards Max.

After a whirlwind of furious tweets from JYJ fans, Max Matsuura left the following message on his Twitter account:

“Thanks for everything up until now. There are idiots out there like me (lol) I’m happy that there were people who… understood me. Well, goodbye for a short while!”

The tweet was followed by another reading, “Well! See you again one day!” before Matsuura closed down his official Twitter account.



Since JYJ is currently experiencing contract troubles with avex Entertainment, speculation has been popping up all over the net that the issue is related to the rocky situation between the two, but no statement has been revealed at this time.

Korea Loses It's Image Due To JYJ's Cancellation? International Fans Say: "We Won't Buy Korean Products"



The effect of KBS’s cancellation of JYJ’s broadcast appearance has once again become clear. In particular, international fans have shown their anger towards the broadcasting station and Jeju Island, tarnishing the image of Korea. Now, domestic fans are not the only thing to worry about.

JYJ were scheduled to perform on KBS’s “New 7 Wonders” special, yet were given a notice of cancellation. In addition, JYJ’s presence was replaced by girl groups from JYJ’s former entertainment company, SM Entertainment. JYJ’s agency revealed that KBS did not even give them a clear reason for the cancellation.

In May 2010, many angry messages were left on KBS’s message boards due to KBS not allowing JYJ to perform on “Music Bank”, citing the lawsuit between JYJ and SM Entertainment as the reason.

In the wake of this controversy, international fans have taken their disappointment to domestic portal sites, becoming a hot topic. They write that they came to love Korea because of JYJ, but are very disappointed with this scandal.

An Egyptian fan writes, “I loved Korea because of JYJ, and bought Korean electronics and products because of it. Now, I will love only JYJ, not Korea. I am angry at the injustice JYJ has to suffer because of a powerful force.” An Australian fan writes, “I learned a lot about Korea after becoming a JYJ fan. However, this event has caused fans across the world to worry about the evil and absurity of Korean entertainment companies. I will not buy Korean products in the future.”

Fans from other countries state, “I was going to visit Jeju Island, but now I will definitely not go anymore” and others, expressing their opinions. Seeing these messages, Korean netizens have become worried of JYJ’s international fans’ reactions.

Seeing the messages left by international fans, Korean netizens wrote, “I’m embarrassed. Even though I do not pay much attention to nor like JYJ that much, seeing this makes me feel embarrassed”, “KBS, a national broadcasting station, has tarnished the country’s image”, “Hallyu is playing a role in cultural exchange, but how should we do the cultural exchange well? The entire nation is pondering”, showing their embarrassment to the situation.

Domestic fans are reacting similarly. A Korean fan wrote, “I am afraid that foreign fans who have come to love Korean because of liking JYJ will come to hate Korea. I don’t have anything to say to foreign fans, just don’t hate everything about Korea.” Another Korean fan writes, “Foreign fans know of everything that is happening within the country. Foreign fans who planned on seeing JYJ perform have cancelled their hotel and flight reservations. This is not just a lost chance at earning foreign money, but an international embarrassment.”

With this controversy, not only has KBS damaged its reputation. International fans’ image of Korea has been tarnished as well. KBS’s representatives stated, “the line-up of artists is entirely up to the production staff. They will make an announcement after the broadcast on the 20th.”

A Sudden Cancellation Of JYJ's Performance Has Fans Fired Up, Leading To A KBS Boycott



JYJ’s fans have been expressing their rage over the cancellation of JYJ’s upcoming broadcasted performance.

On July 16th, JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment uploaded an official notice on their homepage that read, “JYJ were scheduled to appear in a TV special on the 20th as honorary ambassadors of Jeju’s 7 Wonders nomination, but received a notice today, stating that their appearance has been cancelled.”

They continued to say, “We have currently asked the organizer for the specific reason as to why JYJ’s appearance has been suddenly cancelled,” and “We will post another notice as soon as possible once we have confirmed the details behind the situation.”

JYJ were chosen as the honorary ambassadors for Jeju’s nomination as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and have been garnering great attention as they were expected to drastically increase the number of votes that Jeju receives in the poll by the Swiss foundation ‘New 7 Wonders’.

Netizens who heard the news left comments that demanded an answer from KBS that read, "JYJ are superstars who can move thousands of fans all over the world with one or two songs. Because of KBS’ thoughtless decision to notify JYJ of the cancellation mere days before the event, we demand that they tell us what division of their broadcasting company will compensate the losses in time and money that fans face as they either cancel plane tickets, resulting in a need to pay cancellation charges, or as they are already in Jeju", and "JYJ are Korean singers. So what is the reason that they cannot appear on Korean channels? They are more talented than most groups and are the honorary ambassadors of Jeju. If KBS can’t give a proper reason as to why JYJ’s performance has been cancelled, then they must allow them to perform."

Other netizens stated, "Wasn’t the point of getting Jeju chosen as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World to let the world know of Korea’s top-quality natural wonders, encouraging growth in the tourism industry in the process? What will they do now about the disappointment they have given to JYJ’s international fans?" and "Many of my JYJ fan friends who are international fans are showing their anger at Korea’s unbelievable system. They have already bought plane tickets and made reservations in hotels to see JYJ perform. What will you do now? Korea and Jeju Island’s image is only getting worse in the eyes of foreigners."

JYJ's Junsu, Super Junior's Eunhyuk joke with each other through Twitter



Netizens are buzzing over the news that JYJ’s Junsu and Super Junior’s Eunhyuk recently had a conversation on Twitter.

On July 20th, Eunhyuk tweeted to Junsu, “When am I going to see you, you paid for the meal last time, so you should pay for it this time too“, to which Junsu responded, “Let’s meet and say that you’re going to pay for the meals from now on.”

Eunhyuk then jokingly replied, “You should have a better attitude towards your hyung~ You should be honored that I offered to eat with you.”



The two are known to have been close friends since their elementary school days, and they demonstrated their friendship again through their tweets.

Once fans found out that the two had been talking through Twitter, they excitedly left comments like, “It’s been so long since I’ve heard about you two hanging out“, “So there has been contact between you guys“, and “It’s so nice to see you two talking“.

It’s truly heartwarming to see that their friendship has remained strong despite recent controversies.

JYJ's Fans' Outrage Over KBS Cancellation Prompts Provincial Apology



The famous Hallyu singing group JYJ, which had been actively supporting Jeju's New7Wonders of Nature campaign, was suddenly notified that their appearance on a televised KBS concert for Jeju's New7Wonders of Nature bid was cancelled. This unexpected announcement by KBS outraged JYJ's fans, sparking condemnation and protest online.

Now, Jeju Special Self-Governing Province has offered up an apology.

"The provincial government is sorry about the cancellation of JYJ's appearance in the KBS concert 'Go, N7W! Here is Jeju' at Seongsan Sunrise Pear on July 20," it said in a statement on July 19, adding, "When we hold a big event in future, we will positively support JYJ's appearance, an honorary ambassador which has been playing a major role in the [N7W] campaign."

The statement indicated that the province had no hand in the KBS decision.

The government statement mentioned local appreciation for JYJ's public relations contribution to Jeju Island, including singing the N7W campaign song at many domestic and international concert venues.

From Tohoshinki-san

From Tohoshinki-san,
I received the new single "Superstar" which was released today.
It was my first time that I performed together with
Yunho-san and Changmin-san (from the left in the pic).
I felt their brilliance as stars, and also their transparency, too.

I felt the difference in their expressions before and after the stage.
The costumes that they were wearing above their transparent shirts were
decorated with many Swarovski crystals.
With their bare skin and crystals blending together,
they had a special aura.

The two members completed a fascinating stage.
When they came down the stage and walked backstage,
they shyly gave me the CD saying
"We are embarrassed at this timing, but please hear our new song!"

Their expressions were obviously different from a few seconds before,
they had returned to their transparent expressions.
At that moment I felt that... they are really stars.

In their new song, the western taste of the 80s are hidden in the digital sounds.
The song has a unique atmosphere, it is a wonderful song.
I felt that I met new charms.

They showed us their amazing vocals and performance,
making me think that I would like to watch their live concert!

Park Yoochun, Model For "Acting-dol" Hopefuls, Beats The Sophomore Jinx



Singer-actor Park Yoochun has beaten the concerns of a “Sophomore Jinx.”

Through MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley,” Park Yoochun has once again proven that he is very likely to succeed as an actor.

After recieving praise for his natural performance in his debut work “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” The best newcomer winner at the year-end acting awards Park Yoochun challenged the modern day drama with “Miss Ripley.”

After shining in the first project then failing on the second, the concern about a “Sophomore Jinx” was definitely present. The stagnant atmostphere among those called the “acting-dols” who challenged dramas, Park Yoochun, who was also an actor that was “born from a singer” was once again stereotyped by people. This was especially since modern day dramas are different from period dramas. Without same-age actors, and having to act with experienced senior actors for most of the scenes were also a big change from his previous drama.

However, playing the role of the Jang Miri loving, Mondo Group heir Song Yoo Hyun, Park Yoochun displayed a gentle dominance and the forceful charisma of a director, as well as his deep feelings for the woman he loved, a broad variety of emotions.

Especially in the second half of the drama, when he finds out that Jang Miri had approached him on purpose and had forged her resume and qualifications, his display of inner torment earned him the praise that “his acting skills are beyond that of a newcomer’s.”

Evaluating his “Miss Ripley” performances, “From his crying scenes to the look in his eyes, Park Yoochun uses various techniques and expressions to convey his emotions, showing us what can be considered as “the progress of Park Yoochun,” a more mature and sombre acting image.”

Kim Jaejoong: "It Is Okay To Fall In Love Or Get Married With Older Woman"



The man who has no qualms in facing challenges, Kim Jaejoong is right now standing on a new starting point, ready to move out. The beautiful manly sexy look that always filled the stage, he is now ready to steal the viewers’ hearts with his actor look. This man who is prideful of his fair skin and charming eyes, will display his passion without a doubt.

Kim Jaejoong will be portraying the character of ‘Prince of Financial World’ Cha Mu Won in the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect The Boss’, taking over the slot of ‘City Hunter’. The term ‘Prince of Financial World’ seems to fit Kim Jaejoong very well.

In fact, when asked if there are any similarities between Kim Jaejoong and Cha Mu Won, he said that there seems to be none but still humbly replied bit by bit.

“Cha Mu Won is a very gracious person. Even though he has a very ambitious heart, he is nice to anyone and is a great character. Rather than saying it’s the similarities between me and Mu Won, why not say that it’s his traits that I wish to have. If I am able to be similar to Cha Mu Won, I would be able to exhibit his outstanding farsightedness, but it seems that there wouldn’t be such a day.”

After he replied, this makes us anticipate for this Cha Mu Won character, the Cha Mu Won that is acted by Kim Jaejoong. But if he were to be in a love triangle with Ji Sung in real life, he does not seems to have the confidence to capture Choi Kang Hee’s heart.


“Just like me, Ji Sung hyung will transform into Ji Hyun when acting starts. Although there are mutual feelings developed after getting along for a while, but during acting, there will still be loathing feelings for each other. Even loathing the relationship between him and No Eun Sul.”

In reality, Choi Kang Hee is an older woman (than him), and Kim Jaejoong thinks that dating and getting married with older woman is fine, spreading the message of his thinking that every equal ones deserves their hopes. “If I am thinking of getting married, I am able to accept ladies who are older than me by ten years old now.”

Although Kim Jaejoong has displayed his talent with Japanese actors such as Eita, Ueno Juri etc in ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’, this is his first appearance on domestic drama. Though he said that he is very nervous, the anticipation for it is rather huge too. But gladly, he was able to receive a pass for his acting from his fellow cast members, especially veteran actors like Park Young Kyu and Cha Hwa Yun who said that Kim Jaejoong “will be a successful actor in the future,” raising the anticipation.

“It was tough and there are a lot of things to learn about. I have to quickly adapt to the atmosphere at the filming site. As compared to the things I need to do, most importantly the veteran actors guided me unselfishly and that gave me a lot of strength and also gave me a lot of useful suggestions. Especially senior Park Young Kyu, even when he is already tired after a night’s filming, he would still practice the lines with me many times, allowing me to smoothly deliver the lines.”



In order to finish one episode of a drama, it is like an extreme challenge to the body. When asked if he has confidence in his body strength, Kim Jaejoong surprisingly said that he does not have much confidence and casually moved on to the next topic.

“At the filming site, filming was done in a caring and happy atmosphere, although I am not too confident with my physical strength, but I am still confident with my basic strength. I have not much confidence in overnight filming but will still worked hard for it. Afterall the seniors did not show their tired looks, I think I have to work harder for it.”

As everyone knows, Kim Jaejoong have a lot of Asian fans since his days in TVXQ. Even though his identity is now JYJ, fans are still as passionate and were curious to know what is his difference being a singer or an actor.

“Firstly, a singer stands on a stage and has to use up all of his energy within 3 hours, while an actor has to gradually spread his energy.”

He was the original airport fashionista and the airport fashion style icon, thus people were curious about Kim Jaejoong’s usual looks. To this, Kim Jaejoong gave a surprising reply, i.e. he thinks that he is not good looking. This made the staffs around screamingly said what nonsense is that.

“I think I am not good looking. I have always been straightforward and the reason why I couldn’t say that I think I am not good looking during that period of time was because it would be impolite to the fans who likes me. But I seems to be able to say this out easily now. (laughs) Maybe it’s because I wished that my fans liked me for my straightforwardness and fans who liked me for my looks will probably be minority.”

With these words, it would probably give a shock to all the fans. But such frankness is definitely his charm, and because of this, he continued to be frank. When continuing this question, he would laugh out loud at times and the unability-to-stop tone of his makes it sound so interesting.

“When I was active as a singer, the hairstyle was glamourous, there were lots of accessories, and my skin looked very fair, then I feel that I looked good. At that time, I smiled carefully with reservations. But now I feel very relaxed and sometimes when I looked at myself in the mirror, I would think, “Looks like I have to dress up a bit in order to live well!”



Debuting since 2004 and now it is not that far away from 10th anniversary, what is the difference between now and when you just debuted?

“I was able to react faster on stage now and this period of time, the environment around me changes a lot. To me, compared to the past, I was able to find that humble attitude again. It’s just that this modesty has its positive and negative side. In my case, it seems to belong to the negative side. When you feel confident, humility is a good thing but on the contrary, when you lost your confidence, humility doesn’t seems to be a benefit. I will feel that I am able to do until such par only. But I am currently working hard towards revival (of self-confidence).”

JYJ members have all tried their hands in acting and especially for Park Yoochun who passed as an actor. This appears to be Kim Jaejoong’s motivation and burden.

“I was definitely motivated and can be a burden too. As a senior in acting, Yoochun has a very good start. I am now starting and will do it earnestly.”

The ability to support him through should be his motto. Kim Jaejoong said that his own motto always changes but right now his current motto is revealed.

“And that will be strive to live and not to be greedy. Because I feel that if I am too greedy, I will be punished.”

As he has been busy, he has not been able to take a rest. Does he have any dreams? As expected, he gave an unpredictable answer. He said that he has no dreams and because once he was able to do the things today with his best effort, then he will be able to feel the passion and self-confidence.

“I don’t have dreams and stuffs like that. The aim kept changing and if I were to set an aim now, that I would only think about that aim. I hope to work harder to be luckier and because of fans’ love, I want to do everything to the best that I could. There will be new targets time to time and if I were to work hard towards the aim, then dream would become reality.”

Lastly Kim Jaejoong did not forget to promote his new drama and with this new starting point, what dazzling beginning will he present to us? The anticipation starts now.

“My hope is that the viewer ratings will be able to reach 50% (laughs). Our drama can be watched by a variety of age group from teens to middle and old aged, therefore please give us your love and support.”

Director Lee (Prain)'s Interview On Radio 21 - KBS Jeju Had Promised Not To Cancel, JYJ's Thoughts on Fans & Plans For The Rest of 2011

The following is an excerpt from a news article based on Radio 21′s special on JYJ, which aired yesterday. Director Lee JaeEun of Prain (JYJ’s publicist) gave an interview during the radio program and here’s what she said:

*****

JYJ rep, “KBS had said that ‘there was absolutely no external pressure…’” Director Lee JaeEun, “already reported to Fair Trade Commission, album late this year, and preparing for tour.”

Prain’s Director Lee JaeEun, who in charge of JYJ’s overall communication, gave an interview after reporter Kim and expressed her frustration that “what she can understand the least is the basic purpose of this [Jeju] broadcast.”

“When we received an offer to appear [on the program], I specifically told KBS Jeju that ‘because there are times when [the network] is pressured externally [to cancel on the artist], in order to protect the artist, I will not make a decision unless [JYJ's] appearance on the program is a sure thing.’ [In response], KBS Jeju replied that ‘such a thing would never happen’ and that ‘this broadcast is a special program to promote Jeju, and since JYJ is its honorary ambassador, why would we have problems?’ But despite such a promise, we received a one-sided cancellation notice 4 days before the concert, after we had already received cue sheets.“

Director Lee received attention by revealing that they had already reported this incident to the Fair Trade Commission and received an official document registering the report. Director Lee stated, “the investigator in charge told us that there was more than enough proof” and emphasized, “the problem is that this incident isn’t the first, but currently such situations are occurring repeatedly. Although the courts have made the decision that we should receive compensation when the ex-management company unfairly interferes with [JYJ's activities], unexplainable incidents continue to occur over and over again.”

Furthermore, Director Lee stated, “every time such unjust situations occur, no matter how small or how big, C-JeS entertainment has filed complaints and lawsuits. All will become evidence in the original lawsuit. On this matter, we have taken all action that we could, and from now on we will concentrate our efforts in quickening the ruling in the original lawsuit.” However, Director Lee did draw a line by stating, “this isn’t about raising questions on the position of honorary ambassador or the island of Jeju.”

Currently, JYJ is planning the release of a new album and the start of another world tour during the later half of this year. Director Lee stated, “because [JYJ] is such a worldwide group, the scale is enormous and we’re looking at the entire second half of the year to plan [their new schedules]. Because it hasn’t been long since the world tour ended, we were thinking of taking a breather, but because [JYJ] is being sought-after greatly within not only Korea, but also North America and Europe, we decided to go right into preparing.” [JYJ] is also preparing their second Worldwide album as well.

When asked how JYJ members were doing, Director Lee replied, “the members are more brave than anyone else. They are making good progress in their planned path. However, they are very worried about their fans, who are forced to go through such injustices because they are JYJ fans. They are trying to stay resolute for their fans.”

“The feelings JYJ have for their fans are special. Furthermore, they have great pride for their fans. When I see them use the phrase, ‘well, our fans are…’ after each sentence, I get the thought that they’ve become firmer and closer together by experiencing difficult situations. I am so thankful that there are fans who love JYJ’s music and their dream, and I hope you don’t become too upset because of this recent matter.”

Lastly, Director Lee asked for the support of the Korean public stating, “during this recent matter, not only fans, but the general public including the people on Jeju Island gave us their support. In fact, there’s a side of thankfulness because this incident helped spread the news that JYJ is fighting against injustice. Because this incident is unrelated to the task of publicizing Jeju, JYJ will continue to do their best in promoting Korea’s excellence and Jeju’s beauty to the rest of the world as world stars.”

JYJ Japanese Fans Visit Jeju Island Amid KBS Cancellation Notice



Appointed as ambassadors for the 7 World Wonders campaign, Hallyu Wave stars JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu), many of their Japanese fans came directly to Jeju to find that they would not be featured on the KBS TV broadcast.

JYJ fans traveled to the island in hopes of seeing the KBS Special Broadcast Stage “Challenge! One of the 7 World Wonders is here” that the island was hosting on July 20th at 5:20 pm.

A JYJ fan, Tanaka, said he was introduced to two other fans Ohmi and Mazda on the flight to Jeju. And once they arrived, they immediately went to the Seongsan Illculbong Peak, where the event was held. [T/N: Special Broadcast was held at the Seongsan Illculbong outdoor stage]

Tanaka and Ohmi complained, saying “It is very sad that JYJ fans did not receive proper notice of the cancellation. A great pity. We have been missing JYJ apperance on TV broadcast and therefore were looking forward to seeing them”.

They followed by saying “I booked a ticket in advance to come to Jeju Island. I had hoped that I could cheer for JYJ”.



A blogger who was covering the 7 World Wonders program, Oh Baek Jang, took pictures of the fans, who were voluntary posing with with homemade placards in promotion [of JYJ].

They held signs that had the phrases “JYJ, I’m Sorry” and “JYJ, Thank You” that were written in a sketchbook, and took photos with the venue in the background.

The controversy came about 4 days before the Broadcast on the 20th, when KBS issued a notification to JYJ’s management company Cjes, stating JYJ’s appearance had been cancelled.

JYJ were originally supposed to appear in the Jeju Special Broadcast concert, singing two of their songs.

However, KBS Jeju issued a unilateral cancellation statement, causing Cjes to ask for an official position to be made.

JYJ's Overseas Fans Release Joint Statement: "KBS Tarnished Korea's Brand Image"



JYJ’s overseas fans have released a joint statement today demanding a clear explanation from KBS and the Jeju local government in regards to the sudden cancellation of the group’s appearance from the special broadcast of “New Seven Wonders Concert.”

In a statement of protest, JYJ’s overseas fan alliance said, “JYJ’s fans in Korea and abroad have been criticizing KBS and the Jeju local government for passing on the responsibility to each other, and have asked for a clear explanation for canceling JYJ’s appearance. But KBS and the Jeju local government have only made nonsensical excuses that were unconvincing, which as a result, greatly disappointed many fans home and abroad.”


It continued, “In particular, KBS explained the reason for cancelling JYJ’s appearance was because of the casing of f(x) and SNSD, two artists under SM Entertainment who are in a lawsuit with JYJ. They said JYJ was less popular than f(x), and it was necessary to show various stages for the Jeju people’s better cultural experience, which only increased speculation of ‘backdoor pressure’ being the main cause of the cancellation.”

The alliance added, “To say JYJ, who just completed a seven-country, ten-city world tour, is lesser known and less popular than f(x) makes us wonder what criteria the decision was made under.”

“JYJ’s cancellation has caused fan disappointment, monetary losses in flight and hotel costs, and more than anything, tarnished the entire image of Korea’s positive brand. The fact that the most representative broadcaster of a country is heavily influenced by the power of a private entertainment agency in its casting decisions substantially drops the credibility of Hallyu, and furthermore that of Korea,” it added.

They closed the statement by saying, “This is not a problem just pertaining to KBS and Jeju Island, but rather across the whole Korean pop culture industry. As a fan of JYJ and a consumer of Hallyu, we ask KBS to take responsibility for hurting Korea’s positive image and bringing down its credibility.”

Fans from multiple countries including Spain, Finland, Turkey, Peru, Mexico, the US, and Taiwan, joined together for this statement. Meanwhile, JYJ is seeking legal actions against KBS and the Jeju local government for cancelling their scheduled appearance without prior notice or agreement.

Senator Kim Jae Yoon Condemns KBS, Calls For Clarification & Apology



On July 21st, the controversy surrounding KBS's cancellation of JYJ's broadcast appearance was addressed by Senator Kim Jae Yoon from the Jeju Island parliament, and an apology from KBS was demanded.

Senator Kim Jae Yoon stated, "JYJ were scheduled to appear on a special broadcast on the 20th, yet was suddenly cancelled 4 days before the event, causing Hallyu fans to voice their statements and bringing such international embarrassment."

He continued, "The media has raised speculation of external pressures. The situation became more controversial as groups from JYJ's former entertainment company, whom JYJ are on trial with, replaced JYJ."

Furthermore, he stated, "KBS formally announced that the reason is because of popularity [ie. SNSD and f(x) are more popular than JYJ] but they deserve criticism for not having 'clear criteria' for their broadcasts and going against the promise they made to citizens."

Senator Kim ended with, "KBS must apologize to citizens, domestic fans and international fans for forsaking their promise and causing international embarrassment. Now reveal and clearly explain the reason for cancelling JYJ."

Delinquent Boss Ji Sung Vs Model Boss Kim Jaejoong, Who Will Be The Winner Of The Battle of Two Different Allure



Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong exhibited their two different extraordinary allure of a boss. Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong will be portraying as reckless youngest son of a conglomerate Cha Ji Hyun and capable prince of the financial world Cha Mu Won respectively in ‘Protect The Boss’ that is broadcasting on the 3rd of August, displaying the looks of warm-hearted bosses.

Although Cha Ji Hyun (Ji Sung) and Cha Mu Won (Kim Jaejoong) are first cousin-related, they had quite an intriguing mental battle due to power struggle. Cha Ji Hyun developed a slight feeling of inferiority towards his talented cousin Cha Mu Won while Cha Mu Won is quite defensive against Cha Ji Hyun with regards to gaining of management control due to the complicated family history

Therefore the two often exchanged those glances unknowingly to bystanders, quietly undergoing the feud with the exchange of delinquent boss Ji Sung’s ‘delinquent look’ and model boss Kim Jaejoong’s ‘sharp look’. Though Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong exchanged those fiery looks during filming, they still sat together and talked closely during filming breaks.

The production crew said, “Ji Sung who worked hard in creating a good filming environment and did things sturdily, with polite young man Kim Jaejoong who always walked over with a smile, their good collaboration was unexpected. The opposite allure of both would probably bring about warm-hearted bosses syndrome.”

TVXQ's Single "Superstar" Achieves First Place In Japan's Tsutaya Online Charts



TVXQ released a new single “Superstar”on 20th this month, and achieved first place under the audio category in Japan’s biggest audio and books online website Tsutaya.

This single has been highly anticipated since the start of the preorder last month. TVXQ, who were commercial ads models for 7-11, also released limited edition posters and ringtones to be sold exclusively on 7.net. Although this in turn caused many fans to purchase the single on 7.net, TVXQ still managed to clinch high rankings in many other music charts such as Japan Amazon and HMV.

TVXQ had appeared in Japan Fuji TV’s “Hey!Hey! Hey! Music Champ” 700th episode special, and their rankings shot up once again after the broadcast. Currently, they are ranked 3rd under the preorder category in Japan Amazon and 7.net, as well as 3rd in the HMV weekly charts and 2nd in the preorder category.

It has been 5 months since TVXQ’s “Why-Keep Your Head Down” promotional activities. They will be performing “Superstar” in “Music Station”on 22 July.

JYJ's Jaejoong Explains why he doesn't sing TVXQ's Songs



JYJ’s Jaejoong recently sat down for an interview with Newsen and expressed his thoughts on his image as an idol. He also shared his feelings on the controversy surrounding his composition, “Wasurenaide”.

Jaejoong opened the interview by saying, “I feel that I have an image that’s specific to me, something that’s not normal for an idol. I consider myself a celebrity that people either like or dislike, two sides of the extreme. I hated changing who I was, and I was scared that people who liked me would hate me. For example, I have foreign fans who cosplay. To them, that’s a source of joy and a fun hobby, but the minute I change, all of that could be broken.”

But with continuous effort, he’s honed and improved his skills – he’s not only able to compose, but also direct and even act as well. Jaejoong continued, “I was scared to change, but I realized that even if I did it slowly, those who liked me would continue to like me, and I’m grateful for that.”



Recently, controversy arose over a song he composed while under TVXQ titled “Wasurenaide” when a Chinese artist remade it without Jaejoong’s permission. Fans immediately opposed its release, leading the Chinese artist to state, “I know that there are a lot of memories associated with this song, and I, too, am a fan of Kim Jaejoong’s talent and works. I will reflect on my actions and resolve all matters with Kim Jaejoong.”

Soon afterwards, Jaejoong had written in Japanese on his Twitter, “‘Wasurenaide’ is not my song or anyone else’s. It’s a song that belongs to the five members of TVXQ. That’s why I don’t want to sing it by myself, or with the three members of JYJ.”

In his interview, he explained, “It’s something that occurs often in China, so I didn’t think of taking any particular action against it. I still hope that he won’t sing it, though. Whether or not it’s a song that I composed, it’s a song that belongs to the five members of TVXQ. Even I alone or with the three members of JYJ wouldn’t have dared to sing it.”

He continued, “I feel like it’s causing a wound to those memories that liked and still like TVXQ. The scent of that song conjures what fans believe to be the most beautiful time of TVXQ, and so to sing that song without permission is only wounding the fans.”

When carefully asked if he had no intentions of singing TVXQ’s songs in the future, he quietly nodded his head and replied, “If it’s possible to avoid it, yes…”



Moving onto the topic of conversing with his fans through Twitter, the reporter mentioned that he was direct in expressing himself, much to the point where it was easy for misinterpretations to arise.

Jaejoong didn’t seem to care, though. He explained, “I say what I need to say. I know that it may garner a negative response, but I don’t think it’s wrong. I’m not writing a personal opinion, but a feeling that I think is felt by others, by everyone…”

Commenting on his first Korean drama, he said, “I never had any greed for the leading role. I think it’s more important to consider how to breathe life into my character. For now, I want to be acknowledged for giving life to my supporting role. I really don’t have any intentions of getting greedy for a leading role.”

C-JeS Lodges Complaint Against KBS for Disruption of JYJ's Activities



On July 22nd, C-JeS Entertainment released an official statement regarding the recent cancellation of JYJ’s scheduled broadcast appearance for Jeju Island’s special “N7W” concert.

Their statement reads as follows:

“We would like to first apologize to all the fans for causing them worry over JYJ’s cancellation. Illogical disruptions against JYJ continue to repeat themselves, and every time this occurs, we feel that hesitating is not being of any help to the artists involved, which is why we have decided to release a final statement.

Like a flower that blooms in the blistering winter, JYJ continues to make great achievements amidst exterior pressure and disruptions. Under the name of JYJ, they have released a worldwide album with the help of world-renown artists, and were even introduced on the American Billboard. They are also leaders of the Hallyu wave, having gone on a worldwide concert tour that has brought in over 100,000 people both in Korea and overseas.

Unfortunately, JYJ continues to encounter cancellations for their TV appearances, much like what happened recently.

C-JeS Entertainment will no longer pay such matters any attention and feel any joy or grief from them; instead, we will be doing our absolute best with everything in our power to take actions to ensure that JYJ will be able to walk the path they desire. We have filed a complaint with the Fair Trade Commission for this case with KBS, and we will take legal action for any further disruptions of JYJ’s individual activities.

Not only that, we will continue to focus on the original lawsuit by using the recent controversy (as well as many others) as an accumulation of evidence. Unfortunately, I feel that there will continue to be mountains standing in our way, even if we win the original lawsuit;the situation will not change all that much.

C-JeS Entertainment will continue to walk the path that JYJ have been on all this while. In the future, JYJ will continue to advance onto stages all over the world to show off their talents to their hearts’ desire, and to present joy through their music and acting.

Lastly, JYJ will continue to work as honorary ambassadors of the ‘NW7′ and promote the beautiful Jeju Island. We ask that the fans continue to lend their support and interest.”

The Reason Why Kim Junsu Chooses To Sing the OST for "Scent Of A Woman"



Kim Junsu will be participating in the OST of “Scent of A Woman”. In the weekend special of “Scent of A Woman” broadcasted by SBS on 22nd July, he will participate in the OST, and will also be having a special appearance in the show as the role popular singer Kim Junsu.

Kim Junsu had participated in the OST of Park Yoochun’s KBS drama “Sung Kyun Kwan Scandal” last year as a form of support. Hence, this has aroused much discussion as to why he chose to participate in the OST of “Scent of Woman” instead of the OST of Kim Jaejoong’s “Protect the Boss”.

A related personnel to JYJ explained, “Both dramas are from the same production team, and it was agreed that Kim Junsu’s vocals were more suited to display the love shared between the roles played by Kim Sun Ah and Kim Dong Goon.”

Regarding the special appearance Kim Junsu would be making, he expressed, “ The members of JYJ would like to experience the different entertainment industries, but they would still be putting JYJ activities as a priority. Kim Junsu has an especially great interest to sing for the OST of a drama. Usually, he often sings drama songs such as “That man” and “Don’t forget me”, hence, as compared to acting in a drama, he would love to participate in an OST.”

The OST sung by Kim Junsu, would appear in the drama when it is announced that female lead Yeon Jae (played by Kim Sun Ah) has a limited time left to live on, hence feeling grieved by her love, yet at the same time, feeling the sweetness of her love. Especially with the lyrics, “You are so beautiful…you are so wonderful…I love you, I love you” being repeatedly sung, it makes the atmosphere even more grieving.

In addition, Kim Junsu will be making an appearance as popular singer Kim Junsu in the fifth episode of “Scent Of A Woman”. He would go on a sweet, happy date with female lead Yeon Jae. Kim Junsu and Kim Sun Ah will appear in a date together, and he would be personally singing this song, taking photos and give her his signature, displaying a much passionate scene. Yeon Jae, who has only a limited time left to live, would be the lucky successful one to be picked out for the event “A date with Junsu”.

The production team revealed, “Kim Junsu, who has the best vocals and acting skills, participated in the OST of ‘Scent Of A Woman’, and the outcome was much greater than expected; his guest appearance in the drama is also highly anticipated. I think we can expect a refreshing, happy sensation.”

Lately, Kim Junsu has been taking a rest after the end of his musical “Mozart!” and JYJ is currently working hard on their new album.

Uknow and Shinee's Minho Stages A Perfrect Performance Together



TVXQ’s Uknow Yunho becomes a topic for his puppet performance in the third round of “Kiss & Cry”.

Wearing a white mask, Uknow and his partner Claudia staged a performance which was somewhat similar to a puppet performance. The atmosphere hit the climax when Uknow took off his mask and ripped off his coat. Together with Claudia, they displayed their ability of skating through techniques such as steady lifting.

After the performance, Uknow expressed, “I have to fall earlier than my partner in order to protect her when she falls, so I learnt the way to fall”, turning the atmosphere of the filming site to be one filled with warmth. Judge Kim Jang Hoon remarked, “Even though I’m a guy, but after watching Uknow’s performance, I thought it was really handsome.”

Shinee’s Minho made a special appearance as the role who controls the puppet. Judges asked Minho, “you’re also one of the popular idols that is known for being a great athlete, after watching Uknow’s performance, do you have the interest in try ice skating?” Minho replied, “I thought Yunho was really amazing when I saw his performance live, if I were to practise ice skating…”; he deliberately did not finish his words, causing the studio to be filled with laughter.

In addition, a second elimination would be held in this week’s “Kiss & Cry”.

Official Biography: Cha Mu Won



Being Strategy Team 2′s team leader and director of C group, he is the first cousin of Ji Hyun and only son of CEO Shin Soo Hee who is the sister-in-law of Chairman Cha (the current executive of C group).

Although he is the director of Team 2, in fact he is the internal manipulator who is also in full responsibility for Ji Hyun’s Team 1. As he is good in interpreting and understanding people, this prince of financial world is excellent with interaction and would not lose his poise and graciousness at any moment.

When Ji Hyun got himself entangled in a web of rumours due to a scandalous incident, Mu Won was on the other hand being fully reported as the capable young management executive who is pulling through the responsibilities as the 3rd generation successor.

Though the highly rated facet, it was no falsity.

He has been receiving management coaching from his mother Shin Soo Hee since young and the impressive results he achieved soon after he joined the enterprise gained the trust of Chairman Cha and all the employees. With such achievement, the prediction that Mu Won would be the next C Group’s CEO instead of Ji Hyun appeared in the financial world.

Without a doubt, his main target was to have the conglomerate’s management. This ambition of Mu Won was descended by his mother Shin Soo Hee. The chairman position of C group was not originally the possession of the second son Chairman Cha, but of the eldest son who is Mu Won’s father. Chairman Cha took over the management’s helm from his brother, resulting in Mu Won’s father being outcasted in the conglomerate and died eventually.

Although Mu Won’s father dies of cancer, Shin Soo Hee and Mu Won blamed the death to Chairman Cha. After the negotiation with Chairman Cha, Shin Soo Hee solely took charge of her husband’s subsidiary company. With her angst and rivalry hatred, Shin Soo Hee stepped into the management and became the unscrupulous and capable female CEO, gradually aiming that control, in replacement for her husband. However this does not resolve the anger within her. She hopes to actualize the ambition that is left behind by her husband through her son, Mu Won.

JYJ Park Yoochun Down With Shingles



On the 20th, Park Yoochun was reported to be “down with shingles a week ago while filming for MBC Drama “Miss Ripley”. His face was not affected, and the spots only appeared on his chest and back. His immunity level had dropped due to some factors, like malnutrition, as well as fatigue and pressure from his heavy schedule during the week.”

After filming was wrapped up for “Miss Ripley” on the 18th, Park Yoochun received treatment while filming for an outdoor advertisement. “It is best to stay and recover in the hospital, but because of his daily schedules, he has no choice but to receive treatment as he carries on with his schedule.”

In reply to not being able to attend the celebration party of “Miss Ripley” on the 19th, it was revealed, “his health condition was poor, sweating much while filming for an advertisement outdoors. Although he very much wanted to attend the party, his health condition was very poor because of continuous fatigue and being down with shingles. He would like to extend his apologies to the filming crew for not being able to attend the party.”

JYJ announces upcoming album and world tour



JYJ's Kim Jaejoong stated that JYJ is planning to release another album and hold another world tour during the latter half of the year. More specifically, he stated that they would most likely release an album before his drama "Protect the Boss" ends.

Director Lee stated, “Because [JYJ] is such a worldwide group, the scale is enormous and we’re looking at the entire second half of the year to plan [their new schedules]. Because it hasn’t been long since the world tour ended, we were thinking of taking a breather, but because [JYJ] is being sought-after greatly within not only Korea, but also North America and Europe, we decided to go right into preparing.”

Not only is JYJ planning the release of another Korean album, but they are also preparing their second worldwide album.

JYJ were scheduled to perform at the ‘Jeju 7 Natural Wonders of the World KBS Special’ on the 20th as the island’s honorary ambassadors. However, they received a notification of cancellation on the 16th from KBS Jeju.

JYJ’s management C-JeS Entertainment stated on the 17th, “We will take the appropriate legal action against those who deceived the artistes in this case.”

Tohoshinki after a long time! NMB's first appearance!

In this week’s Music Japan, Tohoshinki (Yunho and Changmin) will appear.
It was their performance in Japan after a long time, so Yunho-kun was trying hard to recollect his Japanese.
Oh, after coming to NHK, he was able to make jokes (T/N: in Japanese) in a blink of an eye.

(other sentences omitted)

-------

This was written by Ishihara P, the famous NHK producer who was always supportive to Tohoshinki. Thank you again, Ishihara P!
The program will be broadcasted today, Jul 24, from 18:10 JST (GMT+9).

Han Hye Jin Promises To Watch First Airing Of Kim Jaejoong's New Drama



Kim Jaejoong has received a promise from Han Hye Jin, to watch the first airing of his drama.

Kim Jaejoong, who is playing the “Prince of the Financial World” Cha Mu Won in the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “Protect the Boss,” received a promise from Han Hye Jin, saying that she will definitely watch the first airing of his drama.

On 20 July, Kim Jaejoong sent a tweet from his personal twitter account to “Healing Camp” host Han Hye Jin, saying “Noona, hwaiting on your talk show~”

Han Hye Jin then responded, saying ” Yes, yes, thanks~~ I’ll make sure to watch Protect the Boss!! There are so many rumors flying around that you work hard and are good at acting~~” promising to watch the first broadcast.

It is understood that both people were in Vietnam last month for the “Asian Dream Cup” as Park Ji Sung’s special guests, and became closer. After that, due to busy schedules from both people, they have not been able to meet and greeted each other via twitter.

Relevant personnel from the production team expressed, “Jaejoong-sshii is warm and approachable, and his friendliness allowed him to get along with acting senior Han Hye Jin like brother and sister. If possible, we hope that the two of them can appear in the same drama together.”

Also, Han Hye Jin is currently hosting “Healing Camp, Aren’t You Happy?” and Kim Jaejoong’s drama “Protect the Boss” will begin airing on 3 August.

JYJ's Jaejoong chats about possibility of collaboration album with Kim Hyun Joong



In a recent interview with Seoul NTN, JYJ’s Jaejoong showed off his friendship with SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong by discussing the possibility of a future album together.

Jaejoong was asked, “If you were to direct the concert of another artist, who would you choose?” Since he and Kim Hyun Joong are famous for being friends of the same age, the reporter suggested Kim Hyun Joong. Jaejoong replied, “That friend will probably try to do everything on his own. I’m not sure whether he’ll take up directing, but I think he will sooner or later.”

He continued, “I went out to drink with Kim Hyun Joong a few days ago and we talked about putting out an album together. We’ve actually been talking about that for some time now, which is why there were rumors of him joining our agency when he wasn’t under a label (laughter). I think it’d be fun working with him, though. Putting aside the profit aspect of it, I want to throw a concert with him for our fans. I can direct it.”

At the mention of the long list of his celebrity friends, he replied, “Korean celebrities do get in contact with Japanese celebrities, but it’s probably not a frequent occurrence. I, too, don’t have a lot, and it’s just that all my friends are famous people. My friends have a lot of interest in fashion, dance, and acting. People of the same profession have similar mindsets, so I naturally become friends with them.”

(Narration)
It is very warm in summer, everyone, are you prepared to avoid heat illness? Today, we have invited the 2 members of Tohoshinki, and will introduce you the goodies to avoid heat illness.

Perfume: It is in the midst of summer. Tohoshinki members, do you like summer?
Yunho: I love summer. My nickname is “Natsuotoko (T/N: summer man)”.
Perfume: “Natsuotoko!” Oh, Natsuotoko- san.
MC: In summer, what do you like to do?
Y: I like Suikawari (watermelon breaking), and if you say summer, the beach.
P: Do you swim?
Y: I am not good at swimming.
P: You go to the beach and play around…
Changmin: Yes, he surely isn’t a good swimmer.
P: Do you know?
Y: Changmin is a better swimmer.
P: So are you good at swimming?
C: Well, I’m not so good, but a better swimmer than Yunho.
P: So your swimming is...

(Narration)
So, let’s go on introducing the goodies to avoid heat illness.

P: Here it is! It is a regular umbrella, a parasol.
Y: It isn’t a regular umbrella…
P: The outside is black, and the inside is silver.
MC: Maybe they should hold it in their hands.
P: Yes. So here it is
C: Yes
Y: Come near. Come nearer.
P: Let him in the umbrella.
Y: Good.
MC & P Cool! Cool!
P: You can shade the sun. Can you please push the orange button there?
C: Yes
Y & C: WOW!
P: The wind. It is an electric fan.
C: Oh, electric fan!
P: Yes, it is a parasol with an electric fan!
Y & C: OHHHHHHHH~~~~~
Y: I really think this is fabulous!
C: Can you tilt the umbrella?
P: Maybe there, it will come out……
MC: The battery will come out.. .
Y: Oh, oh, what shall we do?
P: Oh, no… it came out…
C: OK, I got it.
Y: We’re sorry.
P: I think you will participate in many summer festivals, or your waiting time during drama filming…
Y: It is so comfortable.. I’m getting sleepy.
P: Are you getting sleepy?
Y: I think it is a wonderful product, a kind which I’ve never seen.
MC & P: You’ve got it!
C: It seems expensive.
MC: It is about 3000 yen (T/N: USD 38)
Y: Really?
C: It is unexpectedly cheap.
Y: I will buy it!

P: The next is this product. This is a bottle. Can you please take it in your hands?
C: Yes.
P: When you pull the black part on top, you can drink, as regular bottles.
C: Yes
P: But the difference with the regular bottles is that… there is a part sticking out, on the side of the bottle… that place. Can you please push the button, keeping the bottle a little bit away from your face?
P: It may be near Yunho-san’s face.
C: Here? Oh, here.
P: Can you keep the bottle away from you, and push.
Y & C: OH~
P: Mist comes out.
Y & C: OHHH~~~
P: On warm days, outside…
MC: Oh, an idea seems to pop into your mind.
C: We have our makeup on…
P: You have your makeup on, and your costume..
C: OHH~
P: There is an important point. The mist is the drink inside the bottle.
Y: OHHH~
P: So
Y: You cannot put in Cola..
P: Your skin will become sticky…if it was juice or sports drinks..
C: This is good.
Y: Yes, good. Very nice.
C: Yes, yes, yes.
Y: How do you think about this product, Changmin?
C: Good. I think it is a good idea.
Y: Only that?
C: During the live, the MC time, we can drink and together make mists,
Y: I think we really need this.
P: Yes
Y: Buy it for me.
C: Yes, sir!
P: So he will buy …OK.. thank you for your purchase.

P: The next is the “Cooling power spray”. The cool foam hardens, and the place will be cooled. Thus your body will be cooled.
C: Ohhh
P: Will you try it?
C: Yes, yes, yes.
P: Are you all right? It will be a problem if I spray it on your costume.
C: It’s all right. This isn’t my own clothes.
All: (LOL)
P: But it is your precious costume. It is a little bit vigorous, so please do not be surprised. You have to shake the bottle, and here we go! If you circle your wrist, it will be like a wrist band.
Y & C: OHHHHH~
P: How do you feel?
C: It is really cool.
P: Yes, it is cool.
Y: Yes, it is cool.
P: After it hardens, you can easily take it off. After it finishes cooling…Yunho-san, will you try it, too?
Y: Yes, thank you… oh, good. It is cool.
C: You can easily take it off.
P: Yes, you can. The coolness continues.
C: Ohh.. Are you all right?
Y: It is much cooler than you expected.

"It Was Impossible For JYJ to Appear"...Because Of Their Lawsuit With SM



KBS said, “It will be difficult for JYJ to partake in any non-individual activities until their lawsuit is over.”

This means that there will be close to no chance for JYJ to appear on KBS until their legal suit with SM Entertainment is over.

Meeting with Sports Seoul, a representative of KBS stated, “It will be difficult for JYJ to appear on KBS until the lawsuit with SM Entertainment is over.”

This statement came regarding the fact that JYJ were suddenly unable to perform at the ‘Jeju 7 Natural Wonders of the World Nomination KBS Special Program’ that was held on the 20th. JYJ were schedule to perform two songs for their stage but JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment revealed on the 17th that, “We received a one-sided notification of cancellation four days before the performance.”

C-JeS Entertainment stated, “We received the statement ‘If JYJ perform, it might be impossible for the show to be aired.’” Therefore, an ‘external pressure’ controversy arose that KBS is blocking JYJ from appearing on broadcasted shows. As the representative stated that it will be hard for JYJ to appear on KBS until the end of the lawsuit, the external pressure rumor seems to be somewhat true.

This representative also added, “But JYJ are able to partake in individual activities on KBS,” and “Park Yoochun appeared in the drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, didn’t he?”

However, there have been instances in which their individual activities have been restricted by KBS. Park Yoochun was chosen to appear on KBS 2TV’s ‘Kim Seung Woo’s On A Roll’ with actor Kim Kap Soo early this year but received a notification of cancellation the day before filming was to take place. The representative explained, “I’m sure it was JYJ who were asked to appear on the show, not just Park Yoochun alone.”

But when Sports Seoul contacted ‘Kim Seung Woo’s On A Roll’, the representative who answered the phone stated, “Park Yoochun was invited as he got to know Kim Kap Soo from ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’,” and “There was no reason for JYJ to appear together.”

JYJ’s fans have opened up a petition that calls for an official statement from KBS, KBS Jeju and the other sponsors in charge of the performance. They wish for these sponsors to give an exact reason and an official apology to JYJ.

Interview With Jaejoong in Khan News



Khan News recently held an interview with Kim Jaejoong. The interview discussed the premise behind "Protect the Boss," as well as the preparations and anxiety that Jaejoong had to face for the drama. The translated article from Khan News can be found below:

Because he had been spending his entire day filming for his drama "Protect the Boss," he did not even have time to eat at all. However, he also said that he did not have much of an appetite anyway. Although Jaejoong has maintained his image of being a singer, this will be his first time acting in a drama. Because of this, he is actually very nervous.

August 3rd will mark the debut of Jaejoong as a 2nd generation businessman, Cha Muwon, in the drama "Protect the Boss". Although Jaejoong has acted in the telecinema "Heaven's Postman" and in the Japanese drama, "Sunao Ni Narenakute," since this will be his first Korean drama, this can still be seen as his first time acting in a drama.

Jaejoong stated, "During the JYJ World Tour, I was reading the script for this drama and I thought it was hilarious. The writers have taken a normally serious business setting and turned it into something very fun. I also like the fact that each character seems to have their own role that breathes life into the drama."

"Protect the Boss" is a romantic comedy that centers around the protagonist, Eunsul, played by actress Choi Kanghee, who is a freeloader that begins to work in the business industry with hilarity ensuing. Jaejoong's role of Cha Muwon is a bit foolish but is also a "chadonam" (cold and chic city guy). This character is someone who may have the same qualities as Joowon from "Secret Garden" and Dok Gojin from "The Greatest Love". For this reason, Jaejoong purposely did not watch those two dramas. Instead of watching those dramas, Jaejoong ended up watching the movie "Mutt Boy" many times. After watching veteran actors like Kim Gabsoo, who is currently acting in the sitcom "All My Love," Jaejoong thought that would also want to try roles similar to what he saw in the movie.

Although Yoochun is a fellow member of Jaejoong in JYJ, he is still a sunbae in terms of dramas as he has acted in both "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" and "Miss Ripley". Jaejoong said, "I get lots of questions about whether I will be able to do better than Yoochun. This is, of course, a lot of pressure for me, but Yoochun is my sunbae. When Yoochun was filming for dramas, he had to deal with a 'death schedule'. Because of this, Yoochun told me, 'Hyung, it's your turn to die'."

Kim Jaejoong has also shown his abilities in being a director. In the recent JYJ World Tour Concert 2011 and Son Yeonjae's (the female gymnast) rhythm gymnastics show, Jaejoong showed his abilities in directing to everyone. Because he was also a singer who would be performing on the stage that he was directing for, he was able to think of many ideas for the performance.

Although there have been many opportunities for Jaejoong to show off his abilities in many different areas, he still feels sad. This sadness is also felt by his other JYJ members. This is because they are not able to promote their songs freely as other singers do.

Jaejoong stated, "Although we have lots of issues with our activities as a singer, we have tried to accept and deal with these problems. Luckily, we have been trying other fields, like acting and musicals, and we are able to learn a lot from these experiences. I believe that it is very fun to find where my talents lie as I go through life. Even if it's a small thing, if I am able to find the joy in it, I can make other people watching happy as well."

Avex Sues the Venue That Held JYJ's Japan Charity Concert



Summary of the article in “Shukan Gendai” –Weekly times- Newspaper

On the 10th of May, a warning was sent to the Sumo Organization, clearly requesting the suspension of the event.

Then, a representative from the side of the Sumo Organization called on the 12th of May, saying “figure out your trouble between the involved parties (T/N: JYJ and Avex) because we’ve already allowed the use of the venue, and received the rental fees” the representative informed them rudely. (T/N: the quotes from the representative were written in informal speech that can be considered rude when spoken in such a formal situation.)

“Right before the concert on the 2nd of June, we sent them another warning, but it was useless” a person from Avex said. Avex took all the temporary methods to stop the concert but, it is now forced to take legal actions against the Sumo Organization, the management company and others seeking compensation of 143,400,000 Yen (T/N: approximately $1,834,200) and is taking the case to Tokyo district court.

The compensation was estimated based on the calculation of the profit that Avex would have gained if they held the event as the management company. “All the other concert venues in Japan knew about the trouble between us and the Right-wing gangster organization, and refused to host the concert.

Why was the Kokugikan (T/N: sumo hall) the only one to accept them? You start to suspect that they have connections to the other side (T/N: Right-wingers)” says a member of Avex management.

(Part not related to the lawsuit omitted)

Concerning this lawsuit, the Sumo organization stated, “The petition for the lawsuit has not been confirmed yet, therefore we cannot answer any questions”

For a sumo organization who is covered in scandals and barley managing to finally hold a tournament, the opportunity of hosting a concert for such a popular idol group was an irresistible temptation, but the final result was that they made an enemy of such a huge recording company.

Kiss & Cry U-know Yunho: "I'm Worried About Claudia Getting Hurt, Thus I've Learnt How To Fall"



For his partner Claudia, Yunho even learnt the method to fall. At the 3rd competition on Kiss & Cry broadcasted on the 24th, U-Know Yunho and Claudia displayed their stage with a Marionette theme.

SHINee’s Minho was also present to give his support to this special stage with Yunho and Claudia performing the unique Marionette performance, attracting the judges’ attention. Additionally, the different trials on lifting displayed their improved skills.

Judge Kim Yuna praised, “U-Know Yunho displayed the difficult lift routine thus the steady improvement in his skill can be seen.” U-Know Yunho said, “It was really tough. Because I ever lift up Claudia and after that she fell badly.”

“Thus I wanted it to be different from that time. This time (if Claudia falls) I should fell first, thus I learnt the way to fall. During the practice of falling, I should fall first and then allowing Claudia to drop safely. Because of this, Claudia became confident in me and I gained my self-confidence too.” In order to prevent his partner from getting injured, he learnt the method to fall which made the judges pleased with Yunho’s hard work.

Jaejoong - Twitter Update

Junsu is always the first among the members to wake up. Among the tired members, the first to do his hair, make up and the first to do his shoot. He has been like this for 8 years. Junsu's sincerity is what brought us here and I've come to emulate Junsu as a colleague and friend. There are a lot of lifelong lessons to be learned from Junsu.



Yoochun who is always impartial. He is always in the middle watching over everyone. That's why the members do not have such thoughts that we're alone. During difficult times, he shares his free spirit with everyone and makes us feel secure.

Junsu and Yoochun who makes me think that..I must try harder..you both are greedy uhuhut!

I don't know if I can say this but..I miss Yunho and Changmin as well..They are our members no matter what other people say and they are the guys who know it best more than anyone else..though I'm not sure whether I'm being pointlessly silly but..I miss them after a long time.

Junsu to Jaejoong: Hyung, do you know?? That in this world, there's no other person like you...??

Jaejoong to Junsu: I think I can do without a girlfriend^^ Yesterday while we were shooting, after a long time - I felt that it is enough just having you guys^^ㅎ You've given me so much strength, Junsu-yah^^ We're in this together for a lifetime. Thank you, for being by my side

Avex Sues The Sumo Association For 143.4 Million Yen

This is a more fuller & clearer translation of the previous post



(T/N: This article was translated from the magazine Shuukan Genzai. It’s a rather disorganized article and contains factual errors, so please take this article with a pinch of salt. Also, additional translator notes had to be added to make more sense out of this article, so please bear with me)

Even if you’ve never heard of the popular Korean idol group JYJ, you would probably be familiar with the name “Tohoshinki.” 5-man boyband Tohoshinki is a highly popular group that was ranked as the no.2 best selling artist for CDs & DVDs last year in Japan, with earnings close to 9.4 billion yen.

However, unexpected trouble has arisen due to their “Charity concert” which was held in the Ryogoku Kokugikan on 7 June this year.

Tohoshinki’s management company in Japan, the large recording label Avex has announced that they are currently suing the Japan Sumo Association, who owns and manages the Kokugikan. We will talk about the details of this lawsuit a little later, but Tohoshinki has been facing various issues within the year.

During spring of last year, 3 of the 5 members in Tohoshinki revealed their unhappiness with the low amount of remuneration they were receiving, and broke away from their (Korean) management company, which is one of the largest entertainment companies in Korea. They became independent and started activities as “JYJ.” At the same time, they also left their Japanese management company Avex, and started doing activities independently. Currently, the two remaining members are continuing their promotional activities as “Tohoshinki.”

(T/N: This is a factual error. JYJ signed a new contract with Avex initially as JEJUNG/JUNSU/YUCHUN (JJY), which led to the release of the “The..” album as well as the “Thanksgiving Live in Dome” concerts, with Avex announcing the suspension of JYJ’s activities later in the year citing reasons as stated below)

However, it was later discovered that JYJ’s management company C-Jes Entertainment’s representative was involved in gang-related activities, and this was picked up by the sports papers. (T/N: Sports papers = Japanese tabloids)


Sending Propaganda Vehicles to Avex

Furthermore, this issue became complicated in May this year.

“On the morning of 6 May, in Tokyo’s Bunkyo City, near Avex’s Executive Vice President Chiba Ryuhei’s home, right-wing propaganda vehicles turned up in an aggressive manner.

While yelling “AVEX!” they continuously played the Japanese anthem at a loud volume in the quiet residential area. These propaganda activities would happen for around 15 minutes at a time, and occur several times a day, continuing for a week. Chiba’s family were emotionally run down, and were too afraid to even step out of the house. Naturally, the police officers in the area came and gave repeated warnings about this.

Around the same time, the same propaganda vehicles visited the Avex head office in Aoyama, shouting about the nuclear plant and other unknown issues before leaving. The volume could be heard so loudly that it affected the operations within the office.” - Representative from the Police

The famous right-wing group that sent the vehicles explained that the protest was due to Avex’s actions to demand a prohibition.

According to this right-wing group, JYJ had been planning for this charity since May of this year.

“Initially they planned to hold it at Tokyo Dome, and we received an inquiry from them. However, we hold the management rights within the country, and having this concert with such disregard would be a breach of contract, and therefore could not be allowed. The event location was informed that they would be held responsible as well, so Tokyo Dome refused to give its approval (for the event.)

C-Jes then approached Yokohama Arena, Saitama Super Arena and others, for a location to hold the event. We received inquiries from various locations and we gave the same explanation, requesting for them to desist.“ - Avex related personnel

Saitama Super Arena, who had already started selling tickets, panicked and withdrew (from the agreement) after receiving this notice from Avex.

Immediately after this, the protests happened. Where the right-wing group heard about the event is unclear but, “After so much effort in organizing a charity event that could raise 100 million yen for the disaster victims, why are you raising objections and preventing the event from happening,” they argued with good reason.

It was around this time that suspicious people started “paying visits” to Avex.

Just before Golden Week, a man claiming to be from another right-wing group visited Avex, saying “The Koreans are helping to raise relief funds for the Japanese, so why are you causing problems for them?” and other things, raising his voice at the staff who served him.

Also, there was an incident of a man holding a name card of another group visiting the head office building, but was stopped by the security personnel.


Warnings Were Issued To (Japan Sumo Association) Chairman Hanaregoma

All of a sudden, the 7 June concert was to be held at the Kokugikan.

“An email came, with contents that said something similar to, “To the fans, this wouldn’t exactly be called a concert but more of a fanmeeting.” Although this was announced just before the event was held, most of the fans participated very happily. The tickets cost 8,500 yen per person. Compared to the time of Tohoshinki, the trio’s dances may seem a little lacking in power, and it was a pity that they couldn’t sing Tohoshinki songs, but the fans were really passionate as they were finally able to see the three members after a long time.“ - Female fan who attended the concert

However, Avex was enraged by this sudden concert. “We informed all concert venues that JYJ and C-JeS were in breach of contract, and requested for them not to hold the concert. However, the Kokugikan silently pushed through with it.

“On 10 May, we issued a warning letter addressed to the Executive Director of the Japan Sumo Association(JSA) and distinctly requested for a cancellation. But a representative of the Sumo Association called us on 12 May and said “Settle the problem among yourselves,” “Because we have already given them approval to use the venue, and also received payment.” in a hostile manner. On 2 June, just before the concerts, we sent another warning to Chairman Hanaregoma, but was completely ignored.” - Avex related personnel

Avex even applied for a provisional disposition to prevent the concert from happening, but it was held nonetheless. And now, they are now suing the Sumo Association and its management partners, requesting for 143.4 million yen in compensation at the Tokyo district courts.

This compensation amount was calculated from the expected profit that Avex would have earned as the rightful management company, if they had held the concert.

“All of the concert venues in Japan refused to hold this concert because they knew about the problems between ourselves, the right-wing groups and gang-related people. But for some reason, the Kokugikan agreed (to hold this concert.) We suspect that it’s possible that they may be connected to those (right-wing groups and/or gangs) sides” - Avex management staff

The Sumo circle have always seen gang-related people sitting in the “ijiin” seats (T/N: the best seats closest to the sumo ring) , and there has been rumours that the “oyakatas” (T/N: Sumo coaches) have gang connections as well. With regards to this lawsuit, the Sumo Association said, “ We have yet to be able to verify this writ, so we are unable to reply to your inquiries.”

For the Sumo Association, who were finally able to hold their “Grand Tournament,” after being plagued by misfortune, a popular idol group concert would definitely have been something that they would want very badly. However, it resulted in them antagonizing a big record company.

JYJ Kim Jaejoong, "I Miss Yunho and Changmin Too!", Garnering Fans Concerns



JYJ Kim Jaejoong expressed his feeling of missing for U-know Yunho and Choikang Changmin who have been active together as TVXQ and this garnered fans’ concerns. Kim Jaejoong wrote on his Twitter on the 26th, “I don’t know if I can say such words or not… I miss Yunho and Changmin too.”

Kim Jaejoong, together with Kim Junsu and Park Yoochun, filed a lawsuit against their company SM Entertainment in July 2009 for invalidity towards their exclusive contract and from then on, TVXQ’s activities were halted. The trio formed JYJ and is currently active as one. U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin continued their activities as TVXQ and released a new album.


The lawsuit is still in progress and during this period of time, the members who are on different sides have been suppressing their speech on this.

In such circumstances, Kim Jaejoong displayed his deep feelings for the two TVXQ members and the reason behind it attracted attention. Kim Jaejoong said, “No matter what anybody had said, they are my members as I know them better than anybody else. Although I don’t know if people would deemed this as unnecessary talk, it’s been so long and I really miss them.”, expressing his own thoughts.

Kim Jaejoong’s talk on U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin was naturally displayed during his talk on other JYJ members.

To this, netizens commented, “Of course (he) will miss (them), and could only miss…”, “TVXQ Forever”, “When you miss them, just say that you miss them. This is good.”

Choi Kang Hee plays the role of ‘Noh Eun Sul’, the new secretary to the rebellious son of a conglomerate, ‘Cha Ji Hun’ (played by Ji Sung). JYJ’s Jaejoong plays the role of ‘Cha Moo Won’, who’s considered the ‘prince of the financial world’, and Wang Ji Hye plays the role of ‘Seo Na Yoon’, a perfectionist lawyer who completes the love lines between the four characters.

JYJ's "Get Out" MV Staff Twitter (from July 24)

Yoochun was very calm and wonderful. Jaejoong's personality was brighter and more down-to-earth than I thought. Junsu was cute like the youngest child. I hope that this time the MV that JYJ is filming for their new album will be successful!

I've been listening for the song for the whole day so I can sing it now… it's so addictive. "You're the one I fell in love with~ To me you're the most beautiful one". And here is Jaejoong's car haha. The inside of the car is very beautiful but the car's key is even more impressive http://yfrog.com/h8dlcsvfj

T/N: The staff member didn't write which song the MV was for, but based on the lyrics, it is "Get out"

JYJ: An-an Interview (Forbidden Issue)

Note from SYC team
1. This interview was during 3HREEVOICES II DVD time.
2. Jaejoong and Yoochun flew to Japan before Junsu.
3. The interview contained the boys’ thoughts before their Charity Events in Japan.
4. This is the forbidden issue.



[TOHOSHINKI] a 5 member group that was extremely popular.

But 2009 summer, a shocking incident occurs. Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu, these 3 members filed a law suit against their agency to stop their contracts.
This made the “5 member” Tohoshinki’s activities to be suspended.
It has been a year and a half. The 3 members are facing many difficulties but have a new start as “JYJ”.
In Korea, they are not being able to go on music programs, and even in Japan, their activities are a blank.
Even at a situation like that, the album they released showed a big response, and through dramas,musicals,CF’s, their solo activities have been well received.
They are continuously showing results.

Also this month, the long-waited private DVD is going to be released.
The members who visited Japan after a long time, for a photoshoot, the fans welcomed them with passion.
The 3 members who are making their way, one step at a time right now, will we be able to interview them…?
They have finally responded to our offer.
JYJ who were filming for a DVD in Korea, we headed to Seoul in order to meet them!
Please enjoy the interview that was answered seriously, and the many expressions they showed the camera.



A day in March. In Seoul, Gangnam.

—– It’s ”welcome back” right?
First of all, Yoochun-san, and Jaejoong-san, how was the photoshoot in Japan, after a long time?

Yoochun(YC): When I saw the Haneda Airport I thought, oh~ we’re in Japan, and was able to acknowledge it.
It has changed a lot! But seeing that, I thought, ‘Oh it’s Japan’. I went to many different places. Like the Tokyo Tower, Odaiba, Meguro-Gawa, and etc.

Jaejoong(JJ): Same for me. We didn’t go everywhere together though. Oh! And Shibuya! It was so crowded, that hasn’t changed! The DVD’s theme was “a place with a memory”.

YC: For instance, the Tokyo Tower was when we went for Tanabata. That time, we wrote on the paper with our wish on it, and hung it on a tree…ah,bamboo?

— Do you remember what you wrote?

YC: I don’t remember- *laughs*

Junsu(JS): I remember! I wrote, I want to stand on a stage in Japan.

YC: …? Tokyo Dome right?

———– So, you remember *laughs*. Junsu-san, you're going to go after this, but where are you planing to go?

JS: I haven’t picked yet, but I’m thinking of going to the hot springs.

JJ: That’s a vacation, not work *laughs*

JS: Because, when I think memory in Japan, of course it's the hot springs!
During the tour, we went with out members too.

YC: Hot springs are good. This time, I didn’t have time to do those things.

JS: More like, I only have hot springs to go to, so I told the other two they can’t go!

JJ: In the beginning we talked about where we want to go. But the places with memory…it’s alike
Yoochun and I went to all the places in the beginning, so Junsu had no where to go.

JS: Where should I go.

YC: What about FujiQ high land?

JS: Ah, that’s good. We have memory there too.

YC: Like Dodonpa. (a roller coaster ride at fujiQ)

JS: Until I get there,(to Fuji Q) it should be fun too.

JJ: But I think we will end up going to the same places, for sure.

JS: ….well,if it ends up like, there’s nothing we can do…. But, the most important thing is that we’re going to Japan.

We want to go back to Japan and have a tour.

YC: Yeah. Japan is, how do I say it…it’s already been 6 years.

JJ: Yeah. So it’s not really a foreign place anymore. But after last year’s a-nation, we didn’t go for like half a year.

Half a year is really long.

JS: It is long. For more than 5 years, we were going back and forth between Korea and Japan. So it was the first time, not going to Japan for half a year.

JJ: You forget the words too.

——— So you do forget the language.

JJ: But when you use it, you remember it.

JS: Right now, I’m speaking in Japanese after a really long time.

JJ: When you go to Japan again, you’ll be able to speak naturally. Yoochun was with Korean staff, but out of no where, he was speaking Japanese *laughs*

YC: I still watch “One Piece” on television every week.

——– Speaking of Japanese, Jaejoong-san had tweeted in Japanese several times but the two don’t use Japanese that often.

YC: Junsu, can you type Japanese?

JS: I can’t.

YC: Me too. I don’t know how. Since I’m doing it (tweeting) from my phone, I can’t type Japanese.

JS: I get asked from Japanese fans, “If I write in Japanese, can Junsu read it?” but we can read it. We can read it but we can’t type it. System-wise.

————– For half a year, the Japanese fans were ” Lacking JYJ”, but when you were in Korea, were you able to feel that?

JJ: We did feel that. A lot. They flew from Japan to come to our events and concerts.
Many fans from Japan came to watch Junsu’s musical, and several hundred people came to visit Yoochun’s drama set. On twitter and online, everyone is passionate.
I feel that, they are waiting for us all this time.

JS: Because we were able to feel everyone’s feelings, it was hard for us…. we wanted to go.
We wanted to go to Japan and meet everyone in Japan, we had feelings of apology.

——– How do your feelings towards doing activities in Japan differ from then and now?

JS: (Thinking for a long time) Our feelings haven’t changed that much.
We feel that doing activities in Japan itself, we want to… treasure it… and work hard a lot.
It was the same before, but it’s like that again. That kind of feeling/sense.

YC: If we can normally do activities like before that it would be good but…. we have many different issues, and can’t right now.
I want to go back to Japan as soon as possible and have a tour… A tour and things other than tours, I want to be able to make a lot of chances to meet everyone.

Because we have the fans' support, we can think not to give up.

——– Last year, not just in Korea and Asia, you did some activities on Japan. What is your future plans?

JJ: Nothing is decided yet. In April, we’re going to have a world tour, and it’s after finishing the world tour.

——– Jaejoong-san, you’re the director for the world tour right?

JJ: Ah, yes! I decide the main/basic performance, and create the set list.
The live we did in Korea last year is used as the basic, and we’ll add a few more songs, change the performance, and edit the music orders. I’m hoping that it will be good.

——- it seems like you guys are going snow boarding, going a family trip,and having a satisfying private life. Is it like doing everything you all wanted to do before, all at once?

JS: Yes.

YC: Mmmm, I’m not really thinking about things like that, I’m just doing what came in my mind and thought “maybe I should do this-”.

———- Right now, at what times do you feel the most happiness?

YC: Everyday. (living life to the fullest) Everyday, I’m happy. Lately I’ve been going to eat with my family, now I have time to do things like that.
To be able to do those things, I now have more confidence, and time.

JS: For me… well, I think there is many different types of happiness but I feel the most happiness when I’m singing on stage.
Right now, there’s very little place I can feel that happiness…. The stage in Japan too, I’m hoping that we have more chance to sing on many stages. I want to feel the happiness I get from that more.

—— Last years New Years Eve,when Yoochun-san received the rookie award on “KBS Drama Award”, the 3 sang the title song “Found You” on stage.

YC: yes, for the first time.

JS: Last year singing that on stage was the first, and the last on television! *laughs*

——— How did you feel?

JS: it was a mix feeling… of course I was happy. I was happy but, feeling “happy” with just this one performance, it made me feel sad about myself that it made me happy.
But since it was a day to congratulate Yoochun and a happy day, I wanted to only think about good things. What I think is good is that, as an artist, being able to stand on stage isn’t a “normal” thing but “something really important”, that’s what we realised, that was really big….for us 3. With feelings like that, I think we matured compared to last year, and the year before.

JJ: What was normal became something that isn’t normal.

JS: Even during the difficult times, all of our fans are supporting us everyday, we feel that we cant give up, with that feeling right now, the 3 of us are “Gyu”/ hugging. *laughs* (Gyu- a sound effect in Japanese when you hug)

JYJ Kim Jaejoong: "While Drinking, Kim Hyunjoong Said That He Wants To Release An Album Together"



JYJ member Kim Jaejoong showed his close friendship with Kim Hyunjoong.

In a recent interview with Seoul News NTN. Kim Jaejoong talks about interesting episodes between himself and Kim Hyunjoong, who are both same-age friends in the entertainment circle.

On this day, when Kim Jaejoong was talking about being a director for concerts, he was asked, “What if you were to be the director for another artist’s concert?” Jaejoong thought about this question for a while, then asked the reporter, “How about Kim Hyunjoong?” Kim Jaejoong said, “He will probably do it himself, although I’m not sure if he will do a concert or not, but it’s possible that he might do it.”

“A few days ago, while drinking with Kim Hyunjoong, we talked about when we could possibly record an album together, and actually this has been a topic that we had discussed much earlier before. Then, Kim Hyunjoong had not signed a contract with a new agency yet so there was a rumour that he would join our company, but somehow, we talked about it again (Laughs)”

Kim Jaejoong also said “Working with Kim Hyunjoong should be very interesting, and it would be nice to hold a concert together, not for profit but just for the fans. If I were to direct that, there should be no problems.”

Aside from Kim Hyunjoong, Kim Jaejoong and soccer player Jung Tae-Se, actors Song Joong Ki, Im Ju Hwan, Park Ji Bin, as well as Japan’s Ayumi Hamasaki, Yamashita Tomohisa and Shirota Yu were photographed together, earning him the nickname “Entertainment Network King” with “Crazy (amount of) contacts”

When talking about this, Kim Jaejoong waved his hands and said “I’m really not a network king”

“Korean artists and Japanese artists do make contact with each other, but it doesnt happen often. I too don’t have a lot of friends, but it so happens that my friends are very famous. My friends are mostly interested in fashion, dance and acting, and we have common interests and points of views so we naturally became friends.”

Also, Kim Jaejoong will be making his debut as an actor, playing the role of the “Prince of the Financial World” Cha Mu Won “Protect the Boss,” which airs on 3 August.

Kim Jaejoong Turns Into A Director, Drama Shooting Images Show His Cool Side



Kim Jaejoong showed a cool performance for SBS’s Wednesday-Thursday Drama “Protect The Boss,” attracting the attention of audiences.

Taking over after “City Hunter” ends, “Protect the Boss” which airs on 3 August talks about the female lead who was struggling with finding employment, and eventually becomes the secretary to the male lead, an unruly son of a chaebol family, which leads to a series of incidents that are sweet, insane, happy and lighthearted. This romantic comedy is directed by Son Jung Hyun of “Lovers in Paris,” “Temptation of an Angel,” “First Wives’ Club” and written by Kwong Ki Young, and is highly anticipated.

Playing the role of the “Prince of the Financial World” Cha Mu Won is Kim Jaejoong, who has recently been able to express his role’s cool image perfectly for the drama.

In mid-July, while shooting a scene at the conference room in Seongnam City Hall, Kim Jaejoong who does not usually use technical jargon, kept studying the script and materials, while discussing with the production team about where he was to stand during the shoot and was practiced repeatedly.

Once director Son Jung Hyun called for the actual shoot to start, Kim Jaejoong stood in front of the various “directors” in the drama and performed smoothly, completing the scene without any NGs, his presentation skills surprising the production crew.

One of the related staff said, “Kim Jaejoong was in America from April to June, and was doing his concert tour in Canada, Asia and such. During then, he also took on the role of director, and after the concerts, he received a standing ovation from the staff. This same passion and sincerity was displayed during the filming of this drama. “

“Protect The Boss” stars Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee, Kim Jaejoong, Wang Ji Hye as well as Park Yong Kyu, Cha Hwa Yun, Kim Chung as well as others. The first episode will be aired at 9.55pm on 3 August.

New Topic in Kpop: Overcome Three Main Barriers



Currently, K-pop has broken past the first barrier. That is to say, they have already established the value of their existence. However, this is just the beginning. To globalize K-pop, there are three main issues they need to overcome.


Break away from “Idol Stars”

The first generation of Hallyu was led by actors. Korean dramas were pushed forward in large numbers, with Bae Yong Jun, Lee Byung Hyun, Song Seung Hun, Kwong Sang-Woo and other actors becoming popular as Hallyu idols. However, due to extensive “blank periods” and poor management, the hallyu wave that was led by actors became stagnant.

During this time, the idol stars seized the opportunity and took over this space. Led by TVXQ, and now SNSD, Kara etc, a large volume of girl groups have been gaining the attention of overseas markets. They spearhead the Korean Idol culture, and have broken the geographic barriers between countries.

However, this trend is starting to be a little overdone, and has established the stereotype that “Hallyu = Idol stars.” Aside from music, even dramas such as “Playful Kiss” and “You’re Beautiful” star members from idol groups. To ensure that Hallyu wave can make better progress, aside from appealing to the younger age groups with idol groups, we urgently need to grasp and establish ourselves in a broader age categories and a variety of Hallyu elements. A person related to one of the idol groups said, “We need to discover new hallyu stars, to appeal to the overseas fans who do not like idol groups. If we can give them a stage (opportunity,) then the hallyu wave will be able to progress further.

Break Away From The Japanese Market

Japan, which is located next to Korea is one of the biggest appreciators of the Hallyu culture. From another angle, you can say that it was the Japanese fans’ support that have helped the hallyu stars to grow. Aside from Japan, China, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and various Asian regions have seen a rise in popularity for Hallyu stars. However the truth is, a majority of the hallyu stars are over-reliant on the Japanese market’s support.

With TVXQ, Big Bang, SNSD, Kara and others, recently everyone is trying to break into the Japanese market. They are very sensitive towards the Oricon rankings. The strange thing is that, compared to the current lack of emphasis on song ranking programs in the Korean market, Korean singers are more sensitive to the ranking charts in Japan. This shows that they are using this (Oricon rankings) as a measure of their popularity in Japan.

Aside from Japan, starting from the time of H.O.T., Hallyu stars have been enjoying great popularity in China. However, the issue is that the public is only focused on a specific few stars. Although Super Junior, Rain, SNSD and other are very popular, but China, unlike Japan, is still unable to allow more groups and singers to actively promote there.

And under such circumstances, the group JYJ released their first English album “The Beginning” in October last year, and was judged as “daring to try something new.” JYJ joined hands with famous American producers Kanye West and Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, and using the new group name “JYJ” released their first album produced in English. This album bears the significance of “starting their journey towards the world stage.” The three members, who have dominated the Japanese and Asian markets, have set their sights on the global market, and can be regarded as leaders in “breaking away from Japan.”

Someone in the music industry said, “When you analyze the structure of the Chinese market, it’s not hard to know that they are more appealing than the Japanese market. But so far, the progress of singers has not been as smooth as in Japan. Aside from that, they should also be looking at Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan etc, and create more roadways for the Hallyu wave.”


Break Away from Stereotypes!

The first pioneers of the hallyu wave were dramas. “Jewel in the Palace,” “Winter Sonata” made it big, and big stars like Bae Young Jun and Lee Young-Ae were born. Recently, due to “You’re Beautiful,” Jang Geun Suk has become the new hallyu star, but compared to the time of “Winter Sonata,” the power of dramas in the hallyu wave has been considerably diminished.

And the space left by the dramas was filled by K-pop. The hallyu market which was dominated by male idols has now hit a turning point led by SNSD and Kara. K-pop can be considered as the successor to J-pop, which has captured the Asian music market.

On the other hand, the power of the hallyu wave at Chungmuro (T/N: refers to the film industry – Chungmuro is the street in Korea that is famous for culture & film) has become plain. Actors who have become hallyu stars through their dramas also boosts the popularity of the movies they are featured in, but using popularity to break into the Japanese film industry is not enough, a situation where “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” Someone related to sales in the hallyu market said, “Korean movies have been promoted in various overseas markets, but the effect is not strong enough to be considered part of the hallyu wave. Unlike television dramas which can be watched on public broadcast, movies require an entrance fee, so the visibility among the masses is lower.”

If we want to the multi-faceted Korean culture to be embraced in all fields, not just for dramas and music, we need to promote our movies, games and food as well as other areas, and introduce more variety

JYJ Will Release Korean Album This Year



Boyband JYJ is finally going to release a Korean album domestically.

Although the format and date of release has not been decided, JYJ’s side said that it is targeted to “definitely be released this year” and is currently working on the music production.

JYJ’s Korean album will be their second album after “The Beginning” which was released in October last year. And recently, JYJ member Kim Jaejoong said in an interview with Sports Donga that “I hope we can finalize the release date soon, but currently it’s still unclear”, and “We want to thank the Korean fans, so we are preparing a Korean album.”

The issue that is of even more interest is that after JYJ releases their Korean album, if they will be able to appear on local broadcasting TV. The three members who sang the main theme song for drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, the song “Chajatta” was ranked no.1 on KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank” Song rankings, but they were not able to appear on the said program, creating a conflict. Then, KBS said that “When they release an official album, we will let them appear on the program” and to this, C-Jes said, “If there are no further external pressures or obstacles, please look forward to it.”

On the other hand, recently, due to the cancellation of JYJ’s participation in KBS 1TV’s “Jeju New 7 Wonders – Well-Wishes Special Program” program, with JYJ receiving the cancellation notice just 4 days before the performance, JYJ’s management will be filing an official complaint against KBS Jeju.

Stars Share Their Maintenance Products, To Beat The Summer Heat

Even idol stars, when faced with the blazing summer heat will inevitably lose strength. With a schedule actively packed with television appearances, commercials and magazines in a day, they are bound to lose their appetite, and become weaker. Artists have harder work schedule than most people, so what is their secret to maintaining their pale complexion in the middle of summer? Let us start by studying the types of nutritional products that artists who are losing strength like to eat.

JYJ, who cannot be without Ginseng Chicken Soup and Gongjindan



To JYJ, who are already known to be regular gourmets, a “hot summer day” is a day to eat out. Kim Jaejoong, who is currently involved in the shooting of drama “Protect the Boss” enjoys eating spicy food, and uses spicy noodle soup, and spicy stir-fried squid and other dishes to welcome the hot summer.

Park Yoochun, who is currently taking a break after the filming of “Miss Ripley,” is truly the iced tea spokesperson, and prefers to eat summer fruits. Differing from his fashionble “city” look, he really enjoys eating spicy chicken & potato stew and kalguksu (Korean knife-cut noodles) and other Korean dishes.

Kim Junsu, who is participating in the OST of the anticipated drama “Scent of a Woman” enjoys chicken dishes, and ginseng chicken soup is his favourite nutritious dish. Also, the “gongjindan” (Korean supplement) which became well-known due to the MBC drama “Greatest Love” is also a necessity for the JYJ members.

JYJ's Kim Jaejoong Is Not Pleased With His Acting



JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong, who is in the SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama, Look out for the boss said, “I’m not satisfied with my acting. I need to learn more.”

The drama, Look out for the boss is a romantic comedy about an office assistant trying to train an heir. In the drama, Jae Joong will play Cha Mu Won, a cousin of Cha Ji Hun (played by Ji Sung).

Kim Jae Joong expressed his feelings after watching the preview. “This is the first time that I saw me as an actor and it feels little awkward. Thanks to the editing, I look fine on the drama but I don’t think I’m good at acting. I have get used to the drama set.”

A reporter asked him about the difficulties while shooting, he answered, “Everything is difficult for me, but other crew make me feel comfortable. I want to model myself after other veteran actors. I’m so grateful to work with them.”

Jae Joong has experience of shooting the drama in Japan before. “I felt more comfortable at that time since I’m not a native speaker of Japanese. But now I’m under pressure because I’m worried if I will make a mistake with Korean. But everyone in Japan and Korea is nice to me and I’m thankful for that,” he explained.

He added, “I’m a new actor because I don’t have many experience. Even though I was in Japanese drama, it’s been 2 years so it feels like this is the first time.”

Jae Joong talked about JYJ’s other memeber, Park Yoochun, who played in a role in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. “He said he wanted to hang out with me but then he put off it because I had to work for the drama. He also advised me to practice not to sleep.”

The same producer and writer for The lovers of Paris are making the drama. The first episode will air on August 3 after the City Hunter.

When asked whether he had ever strayed from the ‘right path’, he wittily replied, “Never. You only suffer when you leave home.” Yoohwan also revealed an adorable fact about his older brother, “He had this habit of clutching my clothes whenever we slept as children.”

On the July 24 broadcast of 'Kiss & Cry', TVXQ member U-Know Yunho finally fulfilled his promise to Claudia in treating her with Sweet & Sour Pork, and with the pleading of the youngest competing team, Cha Jun Hwan and Jin Ji Hee, the four went to a Chinese cuisine together.

When asked by Cha Jun Hwan, "Yunho hyung, why don't you have a girlfriend? It's not good for celebrities to not have one~" Yunho replied, "Hyung really wants one too," displaying his innermost hopes.

Yunho then continued to sincerely explain to the two, "Because I regularly go overseas for activities, wouldn't I feel too cautious because of the person waiting for me back home? If we broke up, wouldn't she feel sad and hurt?"

To this, Cha Jun Hwan simply answered back, "Then you two can both go," causing Yunho to burst out laughing. "So it's like that. I'll go according to what you said then," in response to Cha Jun Hwan's innocent suggestion.

Kim Jaejoong Will Participate in the OST



On the afternoon of July 27th, in the Seoul Mokdong SBS Drama Broadcasting Center, a press conference for the drama Protect the Boss (Screenwriter: Kwon Ki Young Director: Son Jung Hyun, first broadcast August 3rd at 9:55 pm) was held. At the press conference actors JiSung, Choi Kang Hee, Wang JiHye, and Kim Jaejoong were in attendance.

Though he is a rookie actor in this drama, Kim Jaejoong is actually a member of the popular group JYJ. His fans were greatly concerned on whether he would participate in the OST for Protect the Boss. In response, Kim Jaejoong has stated “I do have plans to particpate in the OST. However, the number of songs as well as the details are secret!”, causing great curiosity.

In Protect the Boss, Kim Jaejoong plays the Team Leader of the Business Strategy Group. He is cousins with Ji Heon (JiSung) but is very different from [Ji Sung's character], being a Prince in the business circle known for his excellent rules in life as well as never loosing his gentle, calm frame of mind. EunSol (Choi Kang Hee) describes him as a “daddy long legs” character who is more attractive and warm than he is expected to be.

What will happen when the chaebols face off to see who will head the company? The answer is in the pleasantly poignant Romantic Comedy with hints of melodrama as well as social satire. As a follow up to the drama City Hunter, Protect the Boss will air its first episode on August 3rd at 9:55 pm on SBSTV. Also, the first press conference was broadcasted live on-set by SBS Gorealra. You can visit the official site (http://tv/sbs/co.kr/BOSS) to look through the photos that have been uploaded there.

Kim Jaejoong, "I'm Not Satisfied With My Acting"



Kim Jaejoong attended the production press conference for the new Wednesday-Thursday SBS drama, ‘Protect The Boss’ on the 27th at SBS’s Mudong Building. He humbly said, “This is my first time watching my own acting through the trailer and the character doesn’t seems to be myself anymore. It is very novel. The editing looks good and the effects are not bad either, but I am still not satisfied with my acting.”

He followed on, “As the skill of acting would continue to improve with accumulation of experience, therefore I am still not satisfied. I think it is because I am still currently adapting to the role as an actor, thus it seems that I should adapt to the filming site first.”

In the drama, Kim Jaejoong acted as Cha Mu Won who is Ji Sung’s first cousin and the financial prince who is in a power struggle.

Kim Jaejoong introduced his character, “Although Cha Mu Won’s character is calm and sincere but he can be warm-hearted at times, and would display his child-like innocence.” He continued to express his thoughts, “The ability to act along the charismatic seniors is my honour. I will learn well and present to everyone a better self.”

Additionally, No Eun Seol who is facing a career crisis became the secretary for the delinquent boss Cha Ji Hyun after much hassle. As the takeover for ‘City Hunter’ broadcasting slot, the romantic comedy ‘Protect The Boss’ will be premiering on the 3rd of August.

Kim Jaejoong, "Targeting New Actor Award? I Have No Desire."



JYJ’s member and actor Kim Jaejoong expressed his zero desire for the new actor award.

Kim Jaejoong revealed his thoughts on debuting in domestic drama at the production press conference held on the 27th afternoon at Seoul’s SBS Mu Dong building for SBS new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect The Boss’ (Script by Kwon Ki Young and directed by Son Jung Hyun).

Although he had acting experiences through last year’s Japan Fuji TV’s ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’ and acted with Han Hyo Joo in the movie ‘Heaven’s Postman’, but it is his first act in domestic drama and thus had the extraordinary sentiment.

Kim Jaejoong expressed, “It seems that I am starting to have the desire to achieve the new actor award but since this is my first challenge, isn’t it bad to have the thought of getting the award?”, “I have never gotten any other award in school other than the perfect attendance award.”

He continued humbly, “I am working at this as a total new acting experience and therefore I am learning a lot from the senior actors such as Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee, Wang Ji Hye etc.”

He talked about the difference between acting in Japan and domestically, “Acting in Japan was not done with my native language and on the contrary, my burden was lessened. But with the responsibility of performing well in my native language, I was therefore nervous every time.”

Additionally, Kim Jaejoong received a piece of special acting advice from JYJ member and actor Park Yoochun who acted recently in the popular ‘Miss Ripley’. To this, he said, “Have to practice on not sleeping due to the overnight filming. After the conclusion of this work, I plan to go on a holiday with the members.”

Kim Jaejoong is acting as the composed Cha Mu Won who is the 3rd generation of the conglomerate and his character surrounds the power struggle and involvement with Ji Sung’s Cha Ji Hyun, who is related as first cousin.

He relayed his thoughts, saying, “When I first joined in, I envied the free-spirited and a bit nonsensical character of Cha Ji Hyun.” He continued, “I am still unable to adapt and have to act according to the director’s expressions. The other actors are doing very well and it seems that if I am able to work hard, it will be fine.”

‘Protect The Boss’ which involves Ji Sung, Kim Jaejoong, Choi Kang Hee, Wang Ji Hye etc, will be taking over the broadcast timeslot of SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘City Hunter’, premiering on the 3rd of August.

KBS on JYJ's Cancellation: "SNSD and F(x) would make a bigger impact for 'N7W' initiative"



Last week, we reported on KBS’s official explanation as to why JYJ’s appearance on the program, “New Seven Wonders“, was suddenly cancelled. In that statement, KBS argued that SM Entertainment’s SNSD and f(x) were the original performers of the event.

Due to the unceasing uproar of JYJ’s fans, KBS released another official announcement to further clarify their reasoning behind canceling JYJ.

The producer of the show stated on July 28th, “The show was cancelled by the decision of the producers.”

“We received a call on July 15th that SNSD and f(x), who were the initial ambassadors chosen for the program, were eventually able to adjust their schedules for our promotional event.”

“As Jeju is an island, the citizens have a strong desire to experience popular culture, but it’s true that providing such cultural opportunities is limited in Jeju when compared to other cities like Seoul. After receiving confirmations from SNSD and f(x), we believed this program was a good opportunity to bring them performances by big stars.”

He added, “As this show is being broadcast worldwide (72 countries via KBS World), we believed SNSD and f(x) (who toured all the way in Europe recently) would have a greater impact on promoting Jeju for the ‘New Seven Wonders’ initiative. After laying down this judgment, we called JYJ’s agency on July 16th at 9 AM and explained the situation, sincerely apologized, and asked for their understanding.”

He concluded, “The producer of the show holds the authority as to who will perform or be cast for a show, and this decision was made after analyzing which artists would make a greater impact. We are very apologetic for dissatisfying the minds of those who gave their interest and support to this show, and KBS will repay the viewers’ interest with a great Jeju Island special episode.”

**********
Bunch of Bullcrap KBS, you could've just added them, and not removed JYJ for God sakes They're the Ambassadors! and foreign fans were slightly the main point (besides JYJ) duh!! "Tourist Attraction" The Whole point was to promote Jeju Island Worldwide, not just for Jeju Island residents as pointed with your dumb argument KBS. EXCUSES !!

Kim JaeJoong: "I Feel That We're No Longer Young."



JYJ's member, Kim JaeJoong is currently filming a SBS TV drama "Protect the Boss", officially meeting the audience as an actor. Thus, we (the reporters) recently had the honor to interview him.

“Outstanding singing abilities, flawless choreographies and impressive appearances – JYJ is definitely one of those who possess both the looks and the talents – Many rookies even set them as their role models.” When Kim JaeJoong was asked how he felt about this, his eyes widened in surprise and he asked, "Really? Who said that? I have to treat him better.”

He continued, “I feel that there’s still a need to work hard. We returned back to the stage as three members, therefore, everything went back to where it started and there are barriers which need to be crossed. First of all, we had to overcome the present situations, and get recognized. Only by that, we have the rights to be proud of ourselves. Comparing to rookies who are always working hard, we’ve never thought that we are better or more popular than them. We (JYJ) still have to work harder.”

Park YooChun is the only JYJ member who had filmed a solo advertisement; he played as a high school teacher who deliberately acted dishonestly towards the girls and even had liquid spilled on his white shirt. JaeJoong commented, "I have watched the advertisement and it’s very interesting. If it was a few years ago, he would definitely be acting as a student. It feels strange to watch him play as a teacher. I feel that we’re no longer young, after a while, I guess we (JYJ) would be acting as the director of the school.”

Our boys are forever so humble. :Heart:

Yunho To Become A Jedi Knight for 'Kiss and Cry'



TVXQ’s Yunho delighted the audience with his ‘Star Wars‘-based routine for the 4th round of SBS’s ‘Kiss & Cry‘.

The upcoming episode will see Yunho showing some flashy swordsmanship on ice with a lightsaber. He’ll also be utilizing fireworks during the performance as well.

The fourth round is bringing in a lot of attention because the contestants must incorporate an axel in their routine. Even the athletic Yunho had a difficult time in mastering the axel jump, but he apparently managed it by gaining quick momentum with a forward take-off.

The judges said, “Up until today, it was like a gala show – but today’s program really brought in the essence of ice skating. It’s like I’m watching your Michael Jackson performance again“.

Yunho’s flashy Star Wars routine can be seen on July 31st when the program airs.

Junsu Musical Version Of "Intoxication"

I know this is a bit old. But I wasn't sure if it has been posted or anyone has seen it? It's quite an interesting version of the song.
