[TRANS] 100731 To all of Cassioepia: It's been a year...

Today is a day that no Cassiopeia would ever forget. It's been a year, and it's gone by in a blink of an eye, hasn't it?

We've waited an entire year, and in truth, it is undeniable that this period has really shown to us all how much we genuinely love our boys.

Throughout this time, we've had our doubts, our worries and even conflicts amongst ourselves, but all that is behind us now, we've made the decision to stay, and to keep waiting. Cassiopeia is a force to be reckoned with, seeing our enthusiasm, it's almost as though nothing ever happened. Every now and then, we may speak of our boys, about how much we miss them, but it's only because we want to see the five of them together again. We motivate one another, we encourage those around us to stay positive, and we vow to wait together; I'm proud of what we've achieved, of this entire fandom.

Many of us have shed tears, and yet we continue down this path because we believe. The boys have our unconditional and wholehearted faith and patience.

Some say they are charmed by our boys' looks, some by our boys' music, and some by our boys' love and emotion. Me? I'm a fan of these fans.

Others may not ever be able to comprehend this kind of unconditional love that we fans have to offer, yet we sacrifice it anyway, to a point where we could almost be deemed reckless and foolish. Even if we may never see those that we love, we love them anyway, regardless of other people's words, perception and lack of understanding.

It is magical, the way the emotions of others are able to affect our own.

Some say that to be a fan of an idol group is to inflict pain upon oneself. Groups inevitably separate, leaving fans with no choice but to focus their support on one particular member. On the other hand, we are Cassiopeia, and each and every one of us knows that we will continue to support DBSK as a whole regardless of the outcome of this difficult situation, wouldn't you agree?

And after writing all this nonsense, my one hope is that all of you will continue to wait, to support and to protect our boys.

Those of you that have twitter, please tweet #imissdbsk, thanks!

[TRANS] 100730 The Scary Ticket Power of TVXQ Junsu & Yunho

Stars debuting for a stage (T/N: in term of drama/musical stage) performance is currently receiving many attention. However the hot issue is not only the challenge those stars face for drama and musical stage itself, but also the huge ticket power of these stars to invite audiences to the theatre that has been recognized ever since.

TVXQ members U-Know Yunho and Xiah Junsu, for instance, have showed off an outstanding ticket power and gave proof of the popularity of themselves.

In December last year, Xiah Junsu took part in his first musical ‘Mozart’. At the 3rd round ‘Mozart’ ticket sales, all 4 stages consisting 12,000 seats where Junsu starring in were all sold out in only 3 hours. Meanwhile during the first and second ticket sales, fans flocked the reservation site that caused the site’s server to crash.

Xiah Junsu’s popularity seems to be repeated by U-Know Yunho. It’s still two months ahead before U-Know Yunho makes his appearance in musical ‘Goong’ on September 8th to 19th. However on last July 9th all tickets were already sold out in 2 minutes.

Moreover, fans who couldn’t get the tickets from Japan, China, Taiwan, and other Asia countries keep sending inquiries to the musical production company. ‘Goong’ production company thanked U-Know Yunho for the popularity of the musical stage and currently in process of discussion to add even more stages for him to perform.

[TRANS] 100729 Tohoshinki Trio Speaks Openly About Their Complex Emotions And New Determination

In June, they held the concert “JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN THANKSGIVING LIVE IN DOME” at the two major Domes, and started breaking away from Tohoshinki. Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun have started their activities as a trio. At Tokyo Dome on 13 June, when they held their final concert, many reports spoke about how the trio cried while showing their love and thanks to the fans, showing their unwavering popularity.

Before embarking on the new stage, Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun went on their own journeys in search of themselves. Their honest words from their hard, and what they feel about the new stage, a real side of themselves are shown in the DVD “3hree Voices”, which was just released.

Junsu released his solo single “XIAH,” which did favorably, went to Australia for the first time. He thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sea, admired the vast nature and was excited all the time, a total opposite from his normal calm self. “This is a time when I can look back on everything that happened since debut,” he said, talking about his current feelings.

After the recently ended drama “Sunao Ni Narenakute (Hard to say I love you)”(Fuji TV) and showing his acting skills in Japanese, Jejung headed to Canada. He enjoyed dog sledding, and drinking with the staff. Jejung, who has been working hard from Tohoshinki to the current solo activities, showed a fresh side as he went around.

And for Yuchun, he went back to his home country, Korea. He was born in Seoul, but grew up in America and went through a hard time. Returning to Korea alone to debut with Tohoshinki, and went through a turbulent route. He now revisits Korea “because this is the country I was born in,” he expresses. You can see his love and feelings for his home country, as well as determination for the new stage.

The three spent time in various places reflecting. Yuchun is shooting a drama in Korea, and other solo activities have started. As they show their honest appearance and words, we want to discover the passion they have been hiding in their heart.

[NEWS] 100727 Micky Yoochun’s Manager “This Is What Really Happened”

Micky Yoochun’s manager has been caught in an assault case.

He was reported for physical violence because he pushed a student with his hand while trying to control the girl’s actions in a restaurant.

A family member of the female student, who was present at that time, stated, “With nothing but curiosity, we were looking at Micky Yoochun, who was sitting at a different table, and saying ‘He’s handsome,’ when his manager said, ‘What are you staring at?’ to us. So my sister said, ‘The manager is so f***ing rude.’ He followed us out and pushed my sister’s shoulder as he said, ‘Why do you have to be so f***ing rude when you speak?’ and ‘Get lost.’”

The family member also continued to say, “My sister got mad so she went back inside and said, ‘Why did you hit me? Is it a crime to say that he’s handsome?’ while crying,” and “Afterwards, the manager followed us outside, swore profusely at my sister and slapped her.”

But Mr. Park, Micky Yoochun’s manager, feels he has been put in an unfair situation. “I was dining with Micky Yoochun when the girls came in. They didn’t order any food and just kept staring at us. But their stares felt uncomfortable; they didn’t feel like stares from fans and were more like glares. So I told them that we were in the middle of a meal and if they weren’t going to order anything, then they should leave,” and “I told them that they could get a signature after we were done eating if they wanted, but they kept staring at us uncomfortably. So I told them, ‘Don’t stare. What are you looking at?’”

He continued to say, “It’s true that the girls’ attitudes were annoying me, so I asked them, “What are you staring at?” But what surprised me was the severity of the reaction I received,” and “I had to listen to a student, ten years younger than me, swear at me using words that no one would ever think of using.” He also added, “Male students with yellow (blonde) hair said to me, ‘You, come here (Without using the respectful tone),’ and they lied and said that I slapped her.”

But when asked why he didn’t apologize for pushing the girl’s shoulder, Micky Yoochun’s manager said, “I had to listen to the student’s family swear at me with… vulgar language and with threats of ripping apart my body such as ‘I’ll rip your arms and legs off and kill you.’ While I was being sworn at, the student in question was being interrogated so I wasn’t given the opportunity to apologize to her. Afterwards, I bumped into her sister but since I had received such foul treatment from her family, there wasn’t much that I wanted to say to her. Because I had figured that anything I said wouldn’t change a thing, I said, ‘So what.’ But when the student’s father came, I sincerely apologized to him numerous times.” He also said, “I do sports so I’m big in size and look intimidating. And if I had hit her, then her body should have shaken from impact in the footage.”

[NEWS] 100729 Yoochun’s Manager Booked Without Detention

Micky Yoochun’s manager has been booked without detention for assaulting a female high school student.

Team 3 of the Western Hwasung Police Station stated that, “During the interrogation, Mr. Park (The manager) admitted to pushing the student’s shoulder,” and “Swearing at someone or pushing someone is considered assault, so he was booked without detention.”

According to the police, the manager admitted to his actions against the student. The police stated, “It doesn’t matter whether or not Mr. Park slapped the student or not. Mr. Park has already admitted to his crime.” They also added, “There will be an additional investigation with the CCTV footage and statements for the witnesses.”

The case will be handed over to the Prosecution next month. There is a high possibility that Mr. Park will have his indictment suspended or receive a fine. A representative of the investigation team involved stated, “Because this is an assault case, it will end quickly with a suspension of his indictment or a fine,” and “Which of the two punishments he receives will depend on his past criminal records.”

A settlement between Mr. Park and the student would not greatly affect the penalty Mr. Park will receive. The police stated, “A settlement would only change the severity of the penalty,” and “If they were to reach a settlement, Mr. Park would more likely receive a suspension of indictment or a smaller fine.”

Mr. Park has been investigated by the police for assaulting a fan of Micky Yoochun who was taking a picture of the celebrity. Mr. Park stated, “The student was swearing profusely at me, so I lightly pushed her on the shoulder,” and “Her allegations that I slapped her are completely false.”

Mr. Park stated that he will accept the police’s judgment. He stated, “Because the police have stated that even pushing someone’s shoulder is assault, I will take the penalty,” and “I was hoping to reach a settlement but the student keeps saying that she was slapped and won’t back down. So, I have decided that it would be better to just receive the punishment I am given.”

A man with charm is 'talk less, act more'

Jung Yunho is the interpreter of new generation, with mentality and spirit of youth, he is walking at forefront of time, to encounter the beauty of present and future.

What's the most memorable event in your life?
My most memorable event, I believe was when I become a singer. At that moment I really felt fantastic. The first moment I stepped on stage, the first performance, those situations were vividly remembered till now. Everyone was crying out my name, I became the protagonist on stage. In fact, it was a very incredible thing to me. I believe I will never ever forget this first time in my life.

You are going to perform in musical, what do you think of it?
It seems to me a new world has arrived. Now I am preparing for musical adaptation of 'Goong' from drama version. Although it is also a performance on stage, but I can feel a big difference from standing on stage as a singer. Musical performances not only singing, but also need to practice dancing, and learn acting skills. It is a performance which mixes songs, dance and acting together. In order to show everyone my best appearance and attitude, I am now practicing hard, so please come and support my transformation into a musical actor, .

What kind of requirements do you think a charming man should have? Do you think you are a charming man?
The most important requirements for a charming man is talk less and more action. The men who can properly preserve and protect something which is valuable to them, this kind of men is attractive. It seems hard to assess myself! I don't know whether I did well or not, but only know I have to work hard continuously and do well in my part.

What are your recent plans? What's your impression of Hong Kong?
I am currently busy preparing for musical 'Goong' which will begin in September. Since I can perform with experienced actors, I have learned a lot from them. Besides that, I have to go to Japan to promote my drama 'HTTG' and DVD. Since there are a lot of promotions and public related activities, I often need to go back and forth between Japan and South Korea and become very busy. HTTG's DVD ranked no.1 on Japan's Oricon Chart, I totally suprised by everyone's love and support... SMTOWN will start a world tour in August, so I am now preparing for it. I hope to meet everyone with a fresher and better look later, so please continue to love me.
About my impression of Hong Kong, I think Hong Kong is a gracious and convenient place. This time I come here for cover shoot, many fans are following me, and waiting for me at the airport, I fully feel their enthusiasm and support. I love the night view of Hong Kong, and the food is very delicious too, so every time I come to Hong Kong I can fully enjoy it before I go back.

What type of girls do you like?
I like girls who have lively and cheerful personality, as well as can take care of the others, and being confident, and can give me good advices oftenly.

[TRANS] 100728 ELLE JAPON Changmin Photoshoot Secrets+Interview

The beautiful Changmin wore clothing styles different from before, so taking advantage of the atmosphere left over from the photoshoot, the interview began. With a one-question and one-answer format, Changmin's language is introduced to everybody.

Q. Recent object that you find cute?
A. Toothless, from the movie "How To Train Your Dragon"

Q. If you were to date, would Korean or Japanese be better to use?
A. Of course, I'm more fluent in Korean, so it'll be easier. If I don't speak Japanese for a certain period of time, it will become unfamiliar.

Q. Which article of clothing did you like the best from today's shoot?
A. The Prada sweater. I normally like knitted clothing.

Q. Do you buy things in Tokyo? Which shop do you normally go to?
A. I will buy stuff, but I'm afraid that I won't be able to peacefully go to the store I usually go to so it's a secret.

Q. What's the difference between Korean and Japanese fans?
A. Essentially, I don't think that there's that much of a difference.

Q. This is your first time being a lead character in a drama, what are your thoughts after the filming ended?
A. Because I've always focused on my activities as a group, being the only one in the drama, I have to shoulder all the responsibility myself. Also, this is my first time challenging acting, so I will feel really pressured.

Q. After the filming ended, were there any view changes in terms of relationships and marriage?
A. There wasn't any particular changes.

Q. What are your thoughts regarding the filming site, Jeju Island?
A. I was really surprised with how easily the weather changes, which is completely different than in Seoul.

Q. What artist's song do you have on repeat?

Q. Do you have interest in musicals?
A. Very interested. Although I don't have any particular plans of participating in any right now.

Q. What do you want to say to your Japanese fans now?
A. My Japanese fans, thank you so much for your concern for me during this period. Although it's frustrating how I can't tell everybody the specifics of future plans and the direction of my career, there will be work later on in Japan, so please anticipate it.

Q. Tell everybody how you spent your resting days.
A. The best way to relieve stress is going out for a drive. Going bowling with friends is also pretty good.

Q. Did you cheer for the world cup?
A. Late last night the Korean team was disqualified. I watched all of it at the hotel, so I'm lacking sleep today. I really like supporting sports, so I will often go and watch Baseball matches. But when they lose, I will feel really despondent.

Q. What are your thoughts on attending the Chanel fashion show?
A. This was my first time experiencing sitting in the first row of a fashion show, so it was very surprising. I was really really happy.

Q. What are you particularly interested in right now?
A. Just 3 days ago, I became hooked onto Tennis. In the past, I've always wanted to play Tennis, but I've never actually started learning yet.

Q. The most recent Japanese word you remember?
A. "Humidity". The humidity is really high, because my hair has natural curl, it has all become really curly.

Q. If you were to make an analysis on your personality...
A. The typical B-blood type. If I were to be completely immersed in something, I wouldn't be able to see the people around me at all.

Q. What is your average daily schedule?
A. Because it's really difficult for me to get up early in the morning, I will get up later in the morning and work out. Then I go to acting class and the day ends really quickly.

Q. Do you make your own food or order takeouts?
A. Mostly it's food made my others and I warm them up later on.

Q. What are your plans for this summer holiday?
A. I'm really busy with work this year, so there probably wouldn't be a holiday.

[TRANS] 100727 CHORUS – Yunho Interview : “I will protect her no matter what”

As I am a true gentleman, no matter what happens, protecting the girl will be my priority

“Under my sister’s influence, I have also read many manga series targeting teenage girls, especially “Boys Over Flowers”! I really like Domyouji Tsukasa’s character and find it really interesting.”
When filming ended, Yunho said it care-freely with a smile. Not as the leader of the group, TVXQ, that Asia is crazy about but as the new lead of a new drama challenge, No Limits, Cha Bong-Goon.

“Although I felt very insecure as a new actor but I was attracted to Bong-Goon who grows up in the story. No matter what happens, he will work hard to progress and treat his family with love. Also, his methods of love is similar to me. However, there are also differences. Bong-Goon is very straight-forward when it comes to love but I am a little conservative. (Laughs) Although when I’m out, I’m leading but when it’s just the two of us, I want to be lead. As compared to expressing my love in a frank way, I would first consider the atmosphere of the surroundings.”

There’s a kissing scene in the drama

“A kissing scene? (Laughs) We NG-ed a lot~ my co-actress, Go Ara, comes from the same management company as me so we already had a good relationship. The moment I close my eyes, I already feel like laughing, it’s really troubling. The director said the kissing scene is getting smoother each time and that it will make one’s heart skip a beat. I feel that when a guy’s jawline can be seen when he stretches out his head is really handsome. I have understood the reason for acting this way as my seniors have always acted like this. (Laughs)”

“Although the filming of the drama has ended but Bong-Goon still stays in my heart.

“Recently, I feel that it’s really hard and frustrating, both physically and mentally. At that time, I would immediately think about what Bong-Goon would do if he was in the same situation as me. This way, I will have the strength to go forward and finish my job happily while carrying a thankful attitude.”

Working with Ninagawa, the theme is ‘Secret love’

“I wonder if I have the correct attitude and then I will show off a sexy side of myself. My own secret love… do I have one? (Laugh) I feel that a secret love is one where even friends don’t know the relationship between us two. This sort of love is a little hard in reality. It is only at the beginning will there be a love that is similar to one in a novel or movie but once you enter this line of work, you’d be more worried about the other person while dating. As I’m a true gentleman, no matter what happens, my priority will still be to protect the girl I love.”

To confirm it’s true love, it might take about 3 years.

“To confirm that a person is really suitable for me, I feel that it might take about this amount of time. I want to make sure I become a man that always treats the family with utmost priority no matter what. I really feel lonely and although I want a girlfriend, there will be no warmth between each other if we don’t really like each other. Dating, to me, will also cause changes in the outer appearance. Wearing formal clothes, drinking wine during a date, you would want to dress up more often right? For example if my girlfriend says that my hairstyle is really good, although I am embarrassed and show no reaction but in reality, my heart would be filled with satisfaction and I would want to maintain that hairstyle. (Laughs) Actually, being praised as good-looking is my favorite!!”

The type of girls that Yunho likes would be a very feminine one.

“Not only will she have to lead me when we are alone but also support me when we are together with friends. Also, I would want to try cooking for her. This relationship is my ideal love.”

[NEWS] Yoochun’s manager investigated for assault

Singer/actor Micky Yoochun’s manager is currently being investigated for assault.

On July 26th, a netizen posted an assertive entry on information site, Nate Pann, claiming that his younger sibling was assaulted and had heard harsh profanity from Yoochun’s manager. This post exploded subsequently because of the content and received a hot response on the internet, besides its possibility of being inauthentic.

The writer of the post explained that his younger sibling had met Yoochun at a snack bar by chance. There, the manager became hostile and began to argue. Eventually, the manager even hit the sibling on the cheek. The writer added that he had CCTV footage and witnesses to prove his story. This netizen stated that he could not comprehend the unbelievable behavior being showed by Yoochun’s manager.

However, Micky Yoochun’s side claimed otherwise.

On the 27th, Yoochun’s manager revealed to Newsen in a phone interview saying, “I didn’t hit, all I did was push… The push has been exaggerated to assault. They were pushed in efforts to keep back the crowding fans… I am currently being investigated by the police… What the opposing side is claiming is definitely not the truth.”

This event is currently being investigated by the Gyeonggi-do police.

[TRANS] 100727 JaeJoong and Music

On February 2010, TVXQ’s Hero JaeJoong was ranked number one on Japan’s CDTV ‘Most Wanted Lover’ chart (males).

In these recent years, Japan TBS music channel ‘CDTV’ had been constantly releasing the artists ranking for ‘Most Wanted Lover’ chart. But the top 20-chart that was released this 13th February, TVXQ’s Hero JaeJoong had won the first position. Though it is a non-music related chart, and the fact that it’s a chart that based on ‘popularity of music’ + ‘attractive of the stars’ + ‘influential ability’ that grade Japan popular groups and singers, therefore this results had surprised many Japan and Korea fans.

No matter how popular TVXQ is at Japan, local Japanese artists also have their own intrinsic strength, moreover their strong foundation. The voting result this time had not only gone beyond the Korea field (they had long gone beyond it), also gone beyond the international field, at the same time gone beyond the topic of shorten popularity, this is a good reflection of how much Japanese fans love TVXQ and Hero JaeJoong which is really interesting and amazing. Especially when the four members of TVXQ including JaeJoong himself had also successfully entered the top 10 chart (Micky YooChun at 3rd, ChoiKang ChangMin at 6th and Xiah JunSu at 7th), result in KAT-TUN, Arashi and other Japanese top group members ranking to drop a few places. In recent years, members of these groups had dominated the chart rankings. Therefore the result this year had created much impact on the fans.

Though this result is shocking, but to think about it clearly, it’s not something impossible too. To be frank, we have always find it weird, why our country (in this article it means Korea) and Asia have yet to be captured by JaeJoong’s charms and stage charisma completely. This person’s charm is beyond standard, till a point that you can’t calmly focus on his singing. People who attended their live concert for the first time whispered, “JaeJoong singing is this good woo!”, this kind of situation had happened for many times, impossible to explain them one by one.

Hero JaeJoong’ singing ability is not just averagely good, though Xiah JunSu’s singing ability had received the highest complements, however the strong duet formation by the two of them is then the powerful leading pillar of TVXQ. JaeJoong leads the group in coordinating the combination of voice, tone, volume, range, expression, interpretation of the song lyrics, leading choral composition, balance control, harmonizing each member as a lead vocal, there’s nothing to be picky about him. Not only that, he never stop learning and analyzing, searching for new type of singing method. In order to expand all different type of expression in music genres, every stage performance is just like experiments to him, putting his best to interact with the audiences, to input all his strength onto influencing the whole performance. It will take a long time to list down all JaeJoong’s musical talents, it would take some efforts to introduce them one by one. His look is the best in Asia, just his singing ability itself can also consider as the top in Asia too, even his attitude towards music, it’s the same as well.

What’s more alarming is that, his capability increased as time goes by. Recently, his creation pieces had also received lots of compliments, very outstanding. The album that TVXQ released last year included two pieces by Hero JaeJoong, consider as two of the most memorable pieces of the album. With self composed music and lyrics, which was really remarkable. Seems like this article is focusing on all the conventional kind of praising, however all that was listed above were magically the facts. Such dazzling combination of their charms as a celebrities and flexibility in music are something hard to believe even seeing with own eyes.

“Are what you said true?” there is people who asked, please take your time to experience is to confirm it. Start from 18th October 2008 “SBS Love Letter’ talk show, the song that Hero JaeJoong sang with ChoiKang ChangMin ‘Its Raining Men’ and ‘In The Still Of The Nite’ to experience it, and also the famous SMAP hit song ‘Lion Heart’ that was sang by TVXQ on 20th March 2009 on Japan FujiTV music show ‘Our Music’. In these program, Hero JaeJoong had showed that its no longer enough to use praises like ‘handsome’ and ‘sang it so well’, what he presented had gone beyond surreal, like a drama-like image. In addition to the ‘Boy Pop Factory ‘09’ that was broadcasted last year by FujiTV, the live performances together with Micky YooChun had also shown their sense of music as well.

The ranking of their Japan live tour DVD ’09 had never dropped on the sale chart, looking at the results of the CDTV ranking this time round, seems like every fans at Japan had recognized their talents, so it’s not surprising that almost every members have entered to the top 10 of the chart, because fans are people who appreciate the true value of the five after experiencing it themselves.

[TRANS] 100725 Romanian fans crazy for DBSK

All the way in Eastern Europe, there is a group of Kpop fans. Their passion and love has reached a point that is unattainable even to the world famous Korean fans. Particularly in Romania, where a Hallyu force has recently emerged. As a professional journalist, I have noticed a fiery passion amongst Romanian fans towards Korean idols.

'Korean music and drama has become a remedy for young people in Romania, who are suffering greatly as a result of economic depression. Koreans should be proud of their music and their television dramas.' said the president of Romania's 'Loving Korea' fan club, Diana Voina.

Favourites among Romanian fans include Dong Bang Shin Ki, FT Island, Super Junior and Jang Geun Suk etc.

Some of the most popular and established fan cafes in Romania include 'Mirotic Cristal Romania', 'Primadonna Romania' and 'ELF Romania' etc.

[TRANS] 100722 Fujin Koron Magazine Yunho's interview

Personal data:
Born in 06.02.1986
Debuted as DBSK in Korea in 2004
Debuted successfully in Japan the following year.
Attended Kōhaku Uta Gassen Music Festival in 2008 and 2009
DVD box 1 and 2 of his debuted drama series 'no limit~ HTTG' are currently on sale.

Popular a capella group TVXQ's leader Yunho, began his solo activities formally as an actor. Continue to gain new experiences everyday, he then talked about his future dreams.
'I want to let everyone see my acting which I put in efforts wholeheartedly and my growth with that character'

Started to play the leading role in drama series "no limit~ HTTG" as soccer player Cha Bong Goon last year. He was very happy when he heard his dvd ranked no.1 on chart in Japan.

'During filming, there was soon the scene speeding in motorcycle, and there was also scene which I jumped into the fire. There were a lot of dangerous scenes that I didn't use substitute, but acted them personally. The scene I fall into Han River too... But, because I want to let everyone see my acting which I devoted wholeheartedly, things that I can do, I did them all.' This is the attitude of the new actor Yunho.

'Bong Goon is really a man with positive thinking, who pours in all his efforts no matter when. "There is a possibility to be successful if strive hard...". It is same with me at this point. Although he was a very childish person at the beginning, and his character was not good either. When I was acting this I felt,"This is a bit different~" (lol) However, he later tasted despair and has risen above it. As Bong Goon grew, I also changed. Whenever I feel painful physically and mentally at work, I often think of,"What will Bong Goon do?" I seem to have grown with him.'

He stood on stage of MJ tribute concert in Korea in March this year and is currently rehearsing for Musical "Goong" which will begin in autumn.
'For me, this is another new challenge. I am really glad that I received this opportunity to train myself. I want to show everyone a fresh Yunho with new attitude. The character I played in "Goong" is a crown prince Lee Shin, who is opposite from Bong Goon who grew in poverty and adversity... "Although they are totally different, but they are Yunho too.", this kind of fresh feelings.'
From here a new challenge began.
'I have always wanted to act in a movie formally. It is also meaningful if I play as villain, because the usual me gives aggressive impression to the others. I don't want to be limited in this kind of image, I want to challenge various characters. Besides that, my latest hobbies is begin to learn tap dance. I am going to show it to everyone if I finished learning, please look forward to it.'
(Words in the pic: In between interview and photo shooting session was coffee-drinking-rest time, "I supported South Korea during their matches in world cup with Changmin at home!' Yunho who was interviewed by several media on the same day, faced the media honestly like usual. He will never forget the staff's feelings, and will surely shake hands with all of them.)

Ladies who put in all their efforts no matter for whom and enjoy their life are pretty!

'The age range for Japanese fans is very wide, from small kids to mothers, different kinds of people will come to give their support. Especially the generation of female in 'Fujin Koron', who need to look after their families, as well as working ladies. To attend this fanmeeting during free time is really troublesome right? I am very happy if our existence able to fully fill in everyone’s energy.
Since my mother is also working, so I can understand better the trouble for balancing work and family. But in Japan's fanmeeting, I can see the whole family (come to support) with happy mood and I am touched by that, "ah, this is really good~"
Ladies who put in all their efforts no matter for whom and enjoy their life are pretty! I will also feel difficult when there is only work. Able to discover something interesting, is very important for continuation of life.
My favourite thing now is bike. In this season, to ride on the bike along Han River with the wind blow in my face, my mood is great!

I have always wanted to repay everyone.
My future dreams, not only as a singer and actor, but also as a stage director who can create my own stage from scratch, etc. Another thing is to let those who want to be an artist to learn free of charge. For those who have abilities and ideas but don't have chance due to lack of money, I want to support their ambitions. I have been hearing this from seniors in celebrities world and my father, "After Yunho has become famous, have to repay a debt of gratitude by helping others within your abilities." and I am going to do it someday.
My father, whom is like a teacher and friend to me, has been giving me advices. The words that left deepest impression on me was, 'A genius can't win over a hardworking person, a hardworking person can't win over an optimistic person.' If you do something with positive mood, you won't feel difficult even though you have to try hard, if you continue to work hard, you can surpass the genius. I have spent my time happily today, and become an artist who can bring happiness to everyone too. I am going to work harder from now onwards.'

Apart from that, ‘Fujin Koron’ is going to select a reader to give away an autographed photo of Yunho.

[TRANS] 100722 KEJ Special - Musical 'Goong' Press Conference

*Yunho turned into a crown prince on stage
Yunho (24) once again accepted the new challenge. He first took his challenge for his acting skills through MBC drama "HTTG" last year, this time he challenged the musical which is adapted from drama series and comic "Goong". With Yunho's participation, it has become a hot topic. Now with each TVXQ member's solo activities, what kind of result will Yunho achieve has garnered great attention.

*Original comic “Goong” is going to present in musical version after the drama adaptation
In Korea, comic “Goong” was sold over 1.4 million pieces and drama “Goong” also achieved the record of 30% viewing rate. This musical adaptation of “Goong” was produced by the production company, 8eight which produced the drama version of “Goong” before. The show will begin in September. TVXQ's Yunho who will take the role of Crown Prince Lee Shin which was played by Joo Jihoon originally in the drama version, has attracted wide attention.
The musical “Goong” press conference which held at 2pm on 16th of June in Imperial Palace Hotel attracted more than 300 reporters from different Asian countries. Lee Shin's role will be played by Yunho, Kim Dong Ho and singer RUN, and the role of Crown Princess will be played by Gwak Seon Young and Shin Ui Jung. Lee Chang Hee and Jung Dong Hwa will both take the role of Prince Lee Yul, whereas Choi Soo Jin and the other girl will be playing the role of Hyo Rin.

8eight reprentative, director, scriptwriter and “Goong”'s original author attended this press conference. During the press conference, the actors said, 'Although it is hard, but with the best staff and the unity among the actors, we have confidence that “Goong” can become a great piece of work. SNSD's member Soo Young's sister who was looking forward to it said, 'I am paying close attention to the methods of production.'
Kim Dong Ho said, 'We are going to present a musical version which is different from the original “Goong”.’

*Yunho: 'I want to become as independent as Lee Shin'
Among the actors, Yunho who challenged musical for the first time as RUN, didn't hide his overwhelming excitement. He said, 'Last night, I was still worried how to face all of you in today's press conference. But then, I thought of just be myself.' 'To be able to work with great actors and staff, I feel glad. If I strive hard to perform it well, it is going to be a wonderful piece.' Before this, Yunho had read the comic and drama version of “Goong”, and like them very much. Due to this, he decided to take the role. He said, 'Through its remake into musical version, we are going to present it with our own style.'
‘Although I feel the pressure, but I also hope to have everyday which is filled with happiness.'
As for the reasons for him to challenge musical, he said, 'I always work hard to take up challenge in different fields, before this I acted in "HTTG" too, this time is musical. For me musical is attractive because it mixes dance, music, and acting together and able to convey emotions to the audiences. Because I believe that I am more hardworking than the others, so I think I received a very good opportunity.’

Lee Shin, the role which Yunho will be playing in “Goong” musical, is a crown prince with outstanding appearance, intelligence, cold and can be harsh sometimes. After the announcement of musical cast, there was heated response on internet which agreed Yunho is the most suitable candidate in appearance for Lee Shin's role. Due to this, Yunho said, 'Lee Shin and I do share some similarity, but at the same time there are some differences between us too.'
'Lee Shin is like Prince Harry in England, who receives support and loves from netizens, but at the same time he is a lonely youth who dreams to be free from his current life. I also hope that I can be loved by everyone as Jung Yunho, however on the other hand I would like to approach Lee Shin this character with the attitude which is different from the usual me.
Sometimes I also dream of breaking away from life like him. But the difference is, I am not as cold and harsh as him. (lol)
Because Lee Shin does not have experience in a relationship, and not good in maintaining it, he wants to show his warm side more if compared to the others. I am similar to him in this. As for the other parts, I have to ask my inner Lee Shin before I know the answers.’

Yunho expressed his appreciation to “Goong” cast by saying that,
'I interacted a lot with other actors during the press conference. Since I am the youngest, so they were really taking good care of me. The musical itself has high quality, so I am looking forward to bring a fresh stunning performance to everyone,' For the question whether there is going to be RAP in musical, he said, 'We had discussed it a lot, either it is RAP, or dancing, they can be used if they can help to approach the audiences naturally.'
Yunho also determined to have a good performance as TVXQ's Junsu. Junsu who challenged musical 'Mozart', won the best newcomer and popularity award in 4th Musical Award, and recognized widely as a musical actor.
'I heard Junsu played Mozart role perfectly, I have confidence and I am going to put in all my efforts while performing it. Therefore I hope that everyone can give me lots of love and attention, and support me with passion.'

* Musical which combined both traditional and modern elements
The production company’s representative also mentioned their difficulties during the production. They wanted to let other company to produce it initially. However they decided to take over it since they were the one who know the comic and drama version well.
For the question of differences between the musical version, drama version and original comic, he answered that it was their most problematic part.
He stated that if adapted fully from comic and the short version of drama, the contents will become incomplete. It is also very difficult if only concentrated in one part. So this time they emphasize on the love, and describe the hardship and growth of an ordinary high school student who suddenly becomes a princess, as well as her love towards Lee Shin.

Apart from that, I hope the director can choreograph the dance steps that can emphasis on Korean style. We hope to present a musical that mixes with traditional and modern elements to everyone. We had done two screen testings within three days, as well as solo screen testing. All the actors’ acting skills are good, so we were hesitating when choosing the cast. Ultimately we chose the actors based on their skills and attitude.
He expressed his satisfaction with the lineup, especially the casts who are going to play Lee Shin’s role.
He said, 'Kim Dong Ho was chosen because of his experience and confidence, RUN was chosen after he passed the screen test. Yunho was chosen due to his high popularity in whole Asia, and his outstanding skills in dancing and singing.
Director Kim said, ' The crew and cast cooperated well in order to produce a great musical. To be able to create the music which can express a person’s inner feelings, we are going to work hard for it.’
‘In order to detach from the serious and rigid atmosphere, I will try to add in comical and sweet touch to it while describing the events happened in palace, and of course we are not going to give up the Korean element.’
They put in great efforts in the opening stage of coronation and wedding. As for the kiss scene, the actors who are going to get involved in it still remain unknown.

On the other hand, today's press conference began from the song ‘Perhaps Love’ in drama “Goong”, later on was their greetings, Q & A session and photo shooting session.
At the end of the press conference, in order to lift the spirit, all the cast shouted, '”Goong” fighting!'
Musical “Goong”, is a musical with unique fantasy setting of 2010 Republic of Korea which still retains its constitutional monarchy system, with story revolves around the life and events after the marriage of a naive ordinary high school student to a charming but cold crown prince. Besides this, together with Lee Yul who competes with Lee Shin for the throne, and Hyo Rin who is Lee Shin’s ex-girlfriend, four of them caught in the love rectangle.
The production team and actors are currently working hard in preparing for the musical performance.
Musical “Goong” will begin to show from 8th of September to 24th of October at Korean National Museum in Seoul.

[TRANS] 100720 Now Is The Male Idols Generation

Male idols continue to compete against one another and challenge female idols like SNSD, KARA and 4minute in the music industry and on variety programmes.

On 31 July, 7pm, 2PM and C.N.Blue will each hold their concert. 2PM and C.N.Blue will be holding their first solo concert since their debut in Seoul Olympic Stadium and AX-Korea respectively. On 18 July, C.N.Blue's leader, Jung Yonghwa, said, "Our concert date clashed with the 2PM-hyungs'. We're currently rehearsing."

Ex-member of 2PM, Jaebeom, and TVXQ's Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, Youngwoong Jaejong, who are in the middle of a lawsuit with their management company SM Entertainment, will be holding fanmeetings. Jaebeom will be holding his fanmeeting on 28 August at Hwajeong Tiger Dome located in Seoul Korea University, kick-starting his solo activities. A representative from Sidus HQ said, "Jaebeom said that the reason he chose Sidus HQ as his management company was to be able to develop his acting, and we're now in discussions regarding the contract for his participation is SBS' [Secret Garden]."

Ultimately, only 3 members of TVXQ will be meeting with their fans through the fanmeeting event organized by Lotte Duty Free - their first public stage in Korea. A representative from Lotte Duty Free said, "We are expecting many fans from Japan and other countries to visit Korea in order to meet these 3 members. We are currently in the process of confirming the number of participants and adjusting the schedule."

If Jaebeom participates in SBS' [Secret Garden], set to air in September, he will be meeting Kim Hyunjoong and Micky Yoochun head on in a battle of dramas. Micky Yoochun will play the lead, Lee Seon Joon, for KBS2's new drama [SungKyunKwan Scandal], which is set to air on 30 August.

Kim Hyunjoong will be starring as the lead in the drama [Mischievous Kiss], set to air on 1 September.

A staff from a drama production company said, "When an idol star participates in a drama, the awareness of the drama is drastically increased and you can also capture the audience who are aged between 10-20 years old. This point in itself, is very advantageous." Also, "When under similar conditions, this is the reason why we use idol members."

I can't express my happiness in words'(Yuchun).
(However) Their honest feelings had left fans filled with depression.
The opening song was a new song いつだって君に (Itsudatte Kimini). Junsu sang first, followed accurately by Yuchun and Jejung. The wide choice of songs which covered Korean and Japanese songs, and solos shows the possibility to expand their activities as a new unit.

During encore, ‘I feel really blessed that three of us being able to stand on stage now.' (Yuchun) 'I am very happy to receive passionate support from everyone.'

[TRANS] 100715 Q & As during SungKyunKwan Scandal Press Conference

1. [asiae]The reasons why Micky Yoochun doesn't have abs.
Park Min Young said, 'During the drama shooting on 13th, I thought Yoo Ah In and Micky Yoochun are manly, therefore they have some nude scenes naturally.' 'However both of them didn't eat much. So after they stripped a little, Kim Young Shik PD asked Yoochun jokingly,"You didn't exercise during TVXQ's activities?" Yoochun answered,"I cann't let my body as fascinating as my face, so I purposely don't exercise."

2. [TVDAILY]Embarrased Micky Yoochun's reply to 'Bed scene with Park Min Young'
Micky Yoochun said, 'The bed scene with Park Min Young... After all, a drama won't only just show a bed right...' and liven up the atmosphere with his funny answers.

3. [asiae]Park Min Young, 'Micky Yoochun was sweating too much...' known as 'SungKyunKwan's sweat jar'
Park Min Young laughed as she said, 'Micky Yoochun, Song Joong Gi and Yoo Ah In, three of them sweat a lot, that really shocked me.' She continued saying that, 'Their faces covered in sweat even though three of them just filming for one shot. Song Joong Gi was like that, so as Yoo Ah In and Micky Yoochun.' 'Their clothes all soaked inside, and it took a long time to wipe off their sweat, so we called them "Sweat Jars of SungKyunKwan".

4. [MK]Park Min Young highly praised Yoochun, 'Micky Yoochun is born to be an actor'
Park Min Young praised, 'In Micky Yoochun's case, he was able to act a scholar which was different from his real personality. He lay down in an appropriate way, and his stares was steady. He is a born actor and gets into the character in the drama well.'
Before this, Micky Yoochun said, 'I really envy other actors.' Yoochun who showed his desire in acting said, 'I have great interest in acting. I am a singer since debut, however through acting I am able to challenge various characters, so that's why I am really envy those actors.'

5. [TV report]Song Joong Gi who acted as playboy in 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' said, 'I learned from Micky Yoochun'
Song Joong Gi said, 'The director told us to act like Micky Yoochun.' Yoochun always keeps a 100% low profile in his usual life. We said,'Will he able to receive an acting award?'. After hearing this, Yoochun who stood beside said, 'I will pretend that you guys have never said this before' and we saw slight worries in his face...

[TRANS] Chinese Girl Group iMe Korea Training – Encounters Idols TVXQ

During the time that the five honey girls of iMe secretly trained in Korea, they met with an interesting episode. One day during their recording, TVXQ were coincidentally in the room next door recording too. This caused the girls to turn into fangirls, continually asking to see their idols. But they were too shy to go up to them and greet them, so they could only look at their idols from far away.

TVXQ’s serious attitude towards their work allowed iMe to realize that the reason why TVXQ was able to achieve such huge success was only through putting in more efforts than others. iMe expressed that they wanted to learn that spirit from them.

[TRANS] 100714 Kim Jaejoong's 11 Fatal Weaknesses

1. Not good looking enough… yet all girls suffer severe blood loss at the sight of him, all flower boy rankings in Korea and Japan are dominated by him and many people would die for him.

2. Too short… yet overtime he speaks to show hosts and fans, he bends down to listen with a smile.

3. Bad singing… yet he is considered one of five best singers to have emerged from an idol group in all of history, and there is no difference between listening to him live and on CD.

4. Bad relationship with other members of the group… yet Changmin, Yunho, Junsu and Yoochun all confide in him when they have problems.

5. Arrogant… yet he tries to help his fans despite nearly falling off the stage and despite his manager and guards' restraints.

6. Not strong enough… yet in countless award ceremonies, whilst other members are in a complete mess from crying, he is the one with his head held high. struggling to keep his tears from falling.

7. Capricious and fickle… yet despite being lied to and cheated on by his first love, he continued to wear the ring that symbolized their love, and defiantly said that he would never hate her and that they are still friends.

8. Easily upset… yet when his biological father was involved in the lawsuit, Jae continued to smile for his fans even though off camera, everybody could see the sorrow in his eyes.

9. Stony hearted… yet he is the one who cries from reading emotional scenes in manga, who holds a box of tissues whilst watching movies… and let's not forget the hardships and torment Jaejoong has endured…

10. Does not take dancing seriously… yet he's pulled his muscles countless times during rehearsal but has told his members not to worry with a smile still on his face. And all that is to stop the media from reporting about his injuries so that his fans won't worry.

11. Cares least about his fans… yet tears escaped his eyes when he saw fans waiting for him in the rain and he said that he'd rather they didn't like him than for them to suffer for him.

Ahn Nae Sang, who appeared as the eldest brother Gun Kang in ‘Three Brothers’ and helped rake in 40% viewership ratings, will appear in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ as Jung Yak Yong, the mentor of SungKyunKwan’s flower boys, the ‘Jalgeum Quartet’. Although this character does not exist in the original novel ‘The Lives of SungKyunKwan Confucian Scholars’, this historic figure was added to strengthen the theatrical aspect of the drama. As an adult who seems to be quite an oddball indulging in Western Learning and entertainment but is quite insightful, Jung Yak Yong is demoted to SungKyunKwan when he is shunned by the Noron faction after being favored by Jung Jo (Jo Sung Ha).

The role of Jung Yak Yong was given to Jo Min Gi initially, but he resigned in a whirl of controversy when he wrote online that “The production company forced me to leave.” Regarding this, Ahn Nae Sang stated, “I thought over the offer a lot when it first came in,” and “I decided to take on the position after much consideration and consultation with the production crew so please watch over me.” Ahn Nae Sang’s participation in the drama will begin with a poster photoshoot on the 14th.

This is all I had time to translate, I'll have the last part posted as soon as possible.

Part 1 Continued

Dad: Do you love me more or DBSK more?
Me: Both!
Dad: Which one do you love more?
Me: Dad!
Dad: Then you don't want your men?
Me: I want them!
Dad: You can't have it both ways...
Me: It's okay, I'll just teach my dad how to kidnap them!

Form a line here if you'd like him to be your godfather~

My Mom & Changmin
One day my mom saw me looking at a photo of Minnie, she said "Take him home and make him work, if he doesn't cooperate, we'll beat him up 30 times a day!'

Part 2
Dong Bang Shin Ki's 'Sanskrit'
My dad went to the world expo last month:
Dad: When I was on the train, I met a group of Cassies. I told them I'm an old Cassie but they didn't believe me!
Me: What did you do then?
Dad: I sang them a DBSK song
Me: What song?
Dad: I sang 'Sanskrit'. As soon as I started, all those girls went nuts, but they finally believed me…
Me: San..Sanskrit? Please, the song's called 'Mirotic'… (I wrote down the two words and showed my dad)
(The chinese name for Mirotic and 'Sanskrit' sound very similar in Chinese)
Dad: It's almost the same thing….
Me:…. =="

So if any of you fans out there met a middle aged man claiming to be an old Cassie and who played you 'Sanskrit', well then, that's my dad, the godfather you guys thought to be perfect.


Being perverted is hereditary…
Dad: *Staring at a photo of DBSK, deep in thought whilst pointing at Yunho* Leader-sshi is the type of man who will look more and more handsome as he ages.
Me: Yeah *nod*
Dad: *Points at Jaejoong* Him… he won't age…
Me: Yeah yeah yeah *nods furiously*
Dad: *Points at Yoochun* Ahh…
Me: What?
Dad: I feel like I'm looking at a younger version of myself!
Me: …….
Dad: Perhaps when he gets older, he'll look like me….
Me: Yayayayayaya *continues nodding furiously*
Dad: Back in those days, I was so charismatic, so many girls were after me…
Me: Aren't they still?
Dad: Who did you hear that from?
Me: You?


Me: Dad, we're doing a flashmob, I just learned the dance, let me show you
Dad: DBSK?
Me: Yeah, Mirotic and Balloons
Dad: Okay, show me.
After I showed him the dances…
Dad: Have you shown your men?
Me: Not yet…
Dad: Whatever you do, don't show Jung Yunho!
Me: Why? *Annoyed*
Dad: If he sees, he'll cry… (Basically he's saying her dancing sucked)
Me: =="


Me: Dad! There's blood in my urine!
Dad: What? Are you sure it's not just your period?
Me: Of course it isn't…
Dad: Then what is it?
Me: Maybe it's because I held it in for too long…
At the hospital…
Doctor: I'll give you some medicine, your kidney's not in very good condition…
Me: Ah, it's all because of Kim Jaejoong!
Doctor: Excuse me?
Dad: Just ignore her, what medicine did you say you were going to give her?

[TRANS] Cassiopeia Dad PART 1

Again, this is from a Chinese fan. I only translated parts of it, let me know if you guys want more.

My father is normally a very strict and conservative person, however this is not the case where DBSK is involved...
If male fans are regarded as national treasures, well then my father must be a rainbow panda...
Do you not believe me? How many of you have discussed matters regarding the lawsuit with your fathers?
My story will be split into several sections, some more touching than others and some more likely to leave you speechless...

Shanghai PART 1
On the 2nd of October, I was outside the venue of the concert buying merchandise when I suddenly heard music coming from within the stadium.
At that moment, I realized that DBSK were rehearsing inside. At the door, some girls started to scream.
My father went to take a look but ended up screaming along with them...
Finally the girls quietened down and turned to stare...

Shanghai PART 2
We were waiting to get into the stadium and having arrived early, I was closer to the front of the line. All around me, people yelled 'Open the door! Open the door!'
Finally, we saw someone at the door waiting to check our tickets.
I told my dad to come over, but instead he rushed to the front of the line.
Watching him cut to the front made me feel bad, and just as I was about to move to the front, he pulled at my collar and said "Come on! Let's go in together!' and so we got in...
Some of the fans looked a little mad and were going to yell at us but got uncomfortable at the sight of an old male Cassiopeia…

Shanghai PART 3
And so we managed to get in…
Dad: 'I thought it was only you, looks like everyone else is the same'
Me: "The same?'
Dad: 'Look' *points up*
Me: …
I looked up and saw a huge poster with a group picture of DBSK


Me: "Jaejoong's so hot'
Dad: "Some day you should tie him up, bring him home and keep him in a cage'
Me: '…'
Dad: 'Tell your friends to come look, 500 per viewing'
Me: 'So that's what you're after…'
Dad: '1000 if they want to hold hands'
Me: '…'
Dad: '5000 if they want a kiss'
Me: '!!!!'
Dad: 'And if they want to stay over night...'
Me: 'WHAT?!'


Kidnapping DBSK
My dad and I have discussed what we'll do once we manage to kidnap them...
Jaejoong - Cooking (obviously)
Yunho - Laundry
Yoochun - Sweeping the floor
Changmin - eh.. well.. He can do my homework (You're a genius minnie, help me with my summer holiday work)
Junsu -… (You don't have to do anything, go and watch TV… no matter what you do, we'll just have to clean up after you)

You guys can borrow the five of them for your household chores too, just speak to my dad about the fees and such

P.S. Flirting with the five of them during their working hours is prohibited. Offenders will be charged an additional fee.

[TRANS] 100707 'Musical Goong' Begins Rehearsals.. Yunho "I Will Focus Completely On Goong"

The cast and crew of 'Musical-Goong' got together for their first rehearsal and made vows for the future of the show.

At the first rehearsal of 'Musical-Goong', which occurred on the 6th in a rehearsal room in Seoul, the cast and crew officially greeted each other for the first time followed by a four hour walk session and script run-through.

The cast who received the official script for the run-through had serious expressions on their faces like students holding tests in their hands. In the confrontational scene between Prince Lee Shin (U-Know Yunho) and Lee Yul (Lee Chang Hee), the two actors played their roles so realistically that the air crackled with tension.

On this day, fans who came to cheer for the musical's first rehearsal arrived with food and utilities for the cast and crew. They sent their warm support as they said, "The anticipation for 'Musical-Goong' is higher than ever. We are visiting to try to help the cast and crew in any way that we can."

U-Know Yunho and Run made sure that each cast and crew member received their food by handing out the boxes of food themselves, an act that was met by cheers from their fellow cast and staff members.

U-Know Yunho made a vow and said, "Since I'm a rookie in the musical industry, I will act and think like a rookie. I'm also the youngest of the male cast members. (laughter) This is the first time that the staff and cast of 'Musical-Goong' have all gotten together and I will concentrate and do my best for the musical."

When rehearsals were done, the cast and crew moved to Daehakro to hold a party to pray for the success of the musical.
