[TRANS] 100925 ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ OST Shows an Enormous Power in Album Charts

TVXQ trio song ‘Found You’, is crowned #1 in most of general OST charts.

‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ OST reigns OST offline charts.

The album that was released on the 16th involves participation of Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun, and Youngwoong Jaejoong thus attracted a lot of interests. Eventhough it was just released after the drama has been airing for 2 weeks, it’s still showing strength in offline album charts. The album occupied 1st place on the 24th album aggregate site Hanteo daily chart. Recording 12,858 sales up to the date.

It is unusual for an OST album to appear on a comprehensive chart. In fact, ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ OST album degraded 2NE1 first album which had been occupying top position of the chart for a long run. Nine days after the release, 2NE1 album topped the daily chart for three days. Yet shortly after the release of ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ OST on the 16th, it became 1st on the 17th. Later on it was down to 2nd place but on the 24th it stepped up occupying 1st spot again, showing a marvelous strength. Indeed it sticks to float at 1st place to mention about OST album chart (T/N: Comprehensive album chart ranks all album sales despite the categories, while OST album chart only ranks soundtrack album sales).

‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ OST album has a song ‘Found You’ sung by Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun, and Youngwoong Jaejoong whose domestic activity have been quite rare, also has each solo song by Xiah Junsu and Youngwoong Jaejoong that definitely become value added. The album surpasses 10,000 copies sales in only one week, showing sign to be a ‘best hit’.

OST album market size is not large to the extent that the album occupies 1st spot in annual chart mostly sells only 20,000 copies. Yet last year, OST album from ‘Boys Over Flowers’ set a scary record by selling an exceptional 53,146 copies after a week, thus it’s interesting to see whether ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ could rise above the record.

[NEWS] 100922 Arashi and AKB48 help set a new record for singles sales

J-pop idol groups, Arashi and AKB48, have help set a new record in singles sales according to Oricon.

For the 9/6 weekly rankings, this year’s total (dating from 2009.12.28-2010.8/29) has exceeded 34,087,000,000 yen. It’s been a whole five years since the fiscal year numbers have been surpassed. This surge was due in large part to Arashi’s “Troublemaker” (ranked no.1 during the week of 9/6 and sold 696,000 copies) and AKB48’s “Ponytail and chou-chou” (ranked no.3 and sold 630,000 copies).

When looking at the top 10 ranking artists, these two groups’ sales take up more than half of the total. Arashi took three spots: 1st with “Troublemaker”, 2nd with ”Monster” (692,000 copies), and 5th with “To be free” (507,000 copies). AKB48 also took three spots: “Ponytail and chou-chou” in 3rd, 4th with “Heavy Rotation” (592,000 copies), and 7th with “Sakura no Shiori” (385,000 copies).

Over the course of the past couple of years, music DVD sales have had a firm holding as well, with a 139.9% markup that is expected to continue for some time. Arashi’s “ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5×10” was #1 and sold 740,000 copies, while TOHOSHINKI’s “TOHOSHINKI VIDEO CLIP COLLECTION –THE ONE-“ ranked 2nd and sold 172,000 copies. Eight out of the ten spots were taken by male artists.

[TRANS] 100922 Twitter Updates - Chiba Ryuhei

Everybody, Max Matsuura is the president of our company. I know that you guys want to stand against him, but I was the person responsible for this issue. Our president has reminded me many times to consider whether or not what I was doing was appropriate, but I told him on numerous occasions 'Please leave it to me!'


It will take time for all of you to understand, but in my position, we cannot work with their company. I really like the three of them, as does our president. I replied (not sure who he's referring to) that if they'd chosen us, then it would've made things very difficult, but it would have been the correct decision. Let us wait a while to see whether or not the decision was right or not.

All the tweets were translated by members of TVXQBaidu, yet somehow the message was interpreted differently by RockJJ, so I've translated their version of the tweet (below) as well.

We've chosen to pursue a course of action which will be more time-consuming, they are not money-making tools to our company. The president likes them as well, it's just that they did not choose us! This is my reply. Also, whatever is difficult is the correct choice. Let us wait. We don't know who's right and who's wrong.


I've read all of your replies. As a person in charge of running the company and as a human being, I will put this into deeper consideration...
So that we can bring back their voices, oyaji gags, dances, and laughter. I will tweet again. Good night.

[TRANS] 100923 MusiQ? Special - Out of Music: On Tohoshinki

This is an article taken from a Japanese magazine.

Considering the events that'd ensued since fall last year, it did not come as much of a surprise when news of the suspension of Tohoshinki's group activities was released on April 3rd 2010. I think most people still felt the same way somewhere deep down. Their presence, the messages they sent through to Bigeast, all the way up until the very last single they released before the suspension - 'Toki wo tomete'. After April 3rd, I felt that the song was almost a mockery to Tohoshinki's current situation, and so I never listened to it. There was an emptiness in my heart, it was a hole that I didn't know to fill.

I knew I couldn't avoid it forever, and so I pushed the 'Play' button. From the moment I heard was Jaejoong's voice, I felt as though all the discomfort and grief melted away in an instant. His voice was so beautiful, so delicate, like it was holding our hand and guiding us into the world of music.

The same went for Junsu, his voice cheered me on and left a deep impression on all of its listeners. Following that was the overlap of Yoochun and Yunho's voices.

At the climax, Jaejoong gave the five boys' voices a slight lift, Changmin raised it to the heavens, up into the starry sky. The beautiful harmony they created had the capacity to induce tears and I could feel their emotions seeping slowly into my heart.

The fear I'd felt evaporated from the moment I heard their voices, their songs left within me a gentle, serene form of love. When I listened to 'Best Selection 2010' on the day of its release (February 17th), be it 'Share the World', 'Purple Line', 'Begin', 'SHINE', 'HUG' or 'Love in the Ice' etc., I felt myself being drawn in. Even through a time of darkness, I felt an force urging me to go on. It's been 6 years since their Korean debut and 5 since their Japanese. Throughout their careers, they've really shone for us, and even now, the same ray of light can be found in their works.

What's worth applauding is that those of us who have witnessed Tohoshinki's success have all gone on to shine in our own ways. We haven't stopped because their activities got suspended, we've continued to do everything possible to the best of our ability, to tolerate one another and to pray for the day when their voices will be united. At the same time, we must also respect others in our support of them, because this is the message they've tried to bring across to us. These are the sentiments of Tohoshinki, that's what I think.

Yunho's solo 'Checkmate' was released together with 'Toki wo tomete'. Upon hearing this fast-paced, upbeat song, I'm sure most people will think back to last year's Dome concerts in July. The elegance they demonstrated on stage exposed their true talent and charisma to an audience of 50,000.

From 'Checkmate', we could see that even individually, each of the members possessed the charm of 5. In the days to come, they'll no doubt strive to further themselves in their solo activities, they'll continue to showcase their many talents, to spread their wings and fly higher, but in our hearts, their essence will remain unchanged. No matter where they are or what they're doing, they'll always be the same Tohoshinki who brought brilliance and hope to us, and because of this, we must continue to keep our faith and to live our lives to the fullest along with the 5 of them.

[TRANS] 100923 Thoughts on 'Blossom' PV

I gave in to avex because I really just couldn't resist the temptation of seeing Jaejoong
I bought Ayumi Hamasaki's CD, where Jaejoong was featured in the PV for 'Blossom'
At the very beginning, even Jaejoong's back exuded a strong manliness.
His smile and his body clad in a white shirt was honestly a sight to beyold
Ah! Even the way he was sitting was so manly.
The deep V of his shirt and the dent that ran down his chest…
I was completely intoxicated by the sight of his figure… so much that I didn't really hear any of the song (laughs)
Standing in the sunlight by the sea, his skin had a luminosity… almost like a vampire?
When he held their (his and the girl's) hands up to his face, the smile that graced his lips was so romantic and blissful.
That was probably my favourite part, his acting was so mesmerizing...

The song suddenly stopped in the middle and was replaced by dialogue. I had a little shock at that moment, it looked like some kind of Korean drama?
The whole scene was just too dark, couldn't see anything.
Ah… but I felt a pang of grief hit me…
Watching Jaejoong cry was so heartbreaking...
Actually, what hurt the most was watching him wipe the tears away and pretend that everything was okay…
Even though I felt sad at that point, I couldn't help being distracted by the thin knitwear he way wearing… and his muscular body...
The sorrowful scenes ended pretty much in an instant.

The cake was wasted and the whole thing seemed to end in a rush.
It felt really short even though it actually lasted over 5 minutes.
Jaejoong's facial expressions in the PV left a really deep impresson.
The way he was smiling radiantly one moment and so solemn the next.
That kind of expression… the girl being the most important thing to him, I thought he portrayed that really well. I was a little jealous…

Of course, the female actor aside, I'd really like to know what it would've been like had the whole thing been a television series.
Oh and, I'm also glad that the female actor had the same hairstyle as me.
Do I sound a little obsessed?
Well it's okay because I'm nearly done (laughs)
I'm going to take my dog for a walk, and maybe if I use my imagination, I'll be able to conjure a vision of Jaejoong nearby.

What did you think of the pv?

[TRANS] 100917 Interview With Trio's Legal Spokesman Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk

In an interview on the 17th, the trio's legal spokesman and lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk revealed that, "Avex requested changes in the contract that the members found difficult to agree to in clauses regarding topics such as income distribution."

Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk also added, "At first, it was agreed that all activities performed by the three members would be scheduled and discussed by both sides, but Avex began asking for this to be changed so that Avex would have sole control of scheduling; Avex also requested additional changes that the trio felt were logically unacceptable"

Regarding Avex pinpointing the history of the head of C-JeS as the main reason for halting activities, Lawyer Lim explained that, "Mr. Baek, the head of C-JeS, willingly volunteered for his company to be excluded from the contract if his criminal record would become a problem, but Avex ignored such a notice," and "Later, they deemed that it would be difficult to progress normally with Mr. Baek's background."

The TVXQ trio's official statement said that, "Several months ago, Avex requested that C-JeS be excluded from the contract for such reasons, and the TVXQ trio agreed to such a request and actively participated in the discussions regarding the renewal of their contract with Avex in order to ensure that they would have smooth activities within Japan."

Lawyer Lim stated, "When viewing the chain of events, there were many situations that could only be seen as Avex insisting that things go their way and their way only. If the opposition decides to retaliate, we will release additional information from our side."

He also added that, "The essence of the current controversy is that an agency offered unfair conditions, contrary to what had been included in the previous contract, to their artistes. When these artistes refused to comply, the agency halted all activities, disregarding the members' wishes," and "It is disheartening to see that Avex is using the head of C-JeS, who is not affiliated with any gangs whatsoever, as a scapegoat to distract the media and public from the real problem."

Lawyer Lim criticized that, "It is immoral to back the TVXQ trio, some of Korea's most representative Hallyu stars, into a corner just because they cannot fulfill a company's greed," and strongly stressed that, "We will work hard to resolve this situation and allow the TVXQ trio to resume their activities in Japan."

[TRANS] 100916 Official Avex Press Release

The Korean company currently responsible for managing JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN's activities in Japan is C-jeS CO.LTD. It was reported that the legal representative of this company has been taking advantage of his father's previous status as a gang leader to threaten and coerce the artists under its label. He has already been has been found guilty of, and sentenced to prison on charges of coercion. With regards to the allegations mentioned above, Avex has conducted thorough investigation, and whilst there is no legitimate evidence to prove for certain that the said legal representative has links with the mafia, reports on threats and coercion were found to be true.

At the same time, there is a possibility that JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN's contract with Avex may be voided as a result of developments in their Korean exclusive contract lawsuit.

Avex holds heavy regard for both the legal and ethical implications of its management guidelines, thus until a clear resolution has been found, we will discontinue our management of the trio's activities.

To fans who have continued to support JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHN, we would like to express our apologies for the concern and apprehension this news must have brought you, but we hope that you will understand the decisions we have made.

There will be no changes in our plans for scheduled releases and ongoing activities. Similarly, no changes will be made to the contract we have negotiated with SM Entertainment for Tohoshinki's activities as a 5 member unit. Avex will continue to work towards the comeback of Tohoshinki, just as we have done in the past.

[TRANS] 100913 Shinjiroh Inoue's Blog, "keep in mind that i love you"


About the right way to pronounce it… while I was still considering between "Daburu" and "Daburyuu", at the rehearsal for Dome Jejung said, "That should be Daburyuu shouldn't it!" so we decided on "Daburyuu" (LOL).

After Tohoshinki's activities were suspended, when the announcement of the trio's "THANKSGIVING LIVE IN DOME" was announced, I received a request to write the lyrics for songs that they can sing at Dome.

At that time, I was entrsuted with writing about the real feeling of the trio.

I'm sorry but I can't write the details about it here.

From now on, I'm going to write about my own feeling… but I could really feel that the trio are sincerely wishing to work as 5 again.

I believe that it is also the wish of the duo and of course, the fans.

I was wondering how I should convey that wish and feeling into a message to fans, thus I created a wrote something called "If you have a message to HoMin, would you tell me your message?" on Twitter and Ameba.

I remember that at that time, I didn't have that many followers on Ameba, but thanks to everyone who spread it on the Internet, I received a lot of messages.

No, I was entrusted with them.

Among the messages, there are messages that are written in all hiragana so that the duo would be able to read them… I feel very apologetic because I can't directly deliver the messages to them…

A great number of messages contain the words "We're waiting for the day you will come back" and "Were protecting a place for you to come back to".

When the song was sung at Dome, went on the download chart, and was uploaded everywhere… I received a lot of messages on what the true meaning of the song is.

Among them, there are bitter comments such as "The trio already left, isn't it funny to say that they're still waiting?"

Since I wrote that song with the intention of conveying the true feelings of the trio and not my own, thinking of the trio, I've been keeping my silence to those comments even though I'm usually a talkative person.

I also made sure that I did not write about anything that is over-sensitive….

However, since they don't have any promotion for "The…" and "THANKSGIVING LIVE IN DOME" this time and I didn't receive any word from the trio thus I decided to gather my courage and write this.

"W" is the symbol of 5 and belong to 5.

"Waiting" is about the day that the 5 of them will work together again.

"Protecting" is the power of the fans.

Those are the feelings of mine, someone who was entrusted with the words from the messages of the trio and the fans.

[TRANS] 100910 JYJ's 'Explosive Start'

TVXQ's trio JYJ have earned 2.8 billion Won (approximately 2.4 million USD) in one day.

The TVXQ trio, consisting of YoungWoong Jaejoong, Xiah Junsu and Micky Yoochun, released their first album on the 8th in Japan and earned almost 3 billion Won. According to Oricon Style, they sold 71,733 copies of their album, which costs 2,800 Yen each (39,000 Won), on the first day. This means that they made a total of 2.8 billion Won in just one day.

Of course, they were also the singers ranked #1 on the Oricon Daily Album charts. Compared to Himuro Kyosuke, who ranked second with 20,000 copies sold, the trio is receiving an explosive response. Many say that with such a large gap between the top two ranks, the trio will be able to sell at least 200,000 copies of their album. Therefore, many also state that the trio will probably rank #1 on the weekly charts as well.

This album is the first to be released by the trio without SM Entertainment. Their surprising album sales only proved once more that TVXQ's popularity is still soaring in Japan regardless of the difficulties they've faced for the past year. The album includes new songs that were performed at the Osaka Kyocera Dome and Tokyo Dome in June such as and . The album can be seen as a way for the members to thank their fans who have been waiting so long for a new release.

The TVXQ trio stated, "We thank all our fans for the positive response we've been getting for our album. Although we are disheartened that we have not had many chances to interact with our fans in Korea, we hope this album will become a stepping stone in creating more chances to communicate with our fans, which is something we would like very much."

The trio have taken a flashy first step as a separate unit and are planning a worldwide October release of their collaboration album with Kanye West.

[TRANS] 100910 Supernova Thanks TVXQ In Interview


Supernova compared the differences between idol groups in Korea and Japan and stated that different things are expected from each country. While Korea focuses on the musical aspect of idols, the Japanese focus on the variety show quality of idols. Therefore, this difference makes Korean idol groups a refreshing change for the Japanese who accept them as true musicians. Supernova pointed out that the best example of this is TVXQ.

"It is all thanks to our seniors TVXQ that we're getting so much love from Japan. It should be known that TVXQ changed the Japanese perception of Korean idol groups and because of this, it has become easier to debut in Japan because the people there now pay more attention to K-pop."


He got that one right!!!!

[TRANS] 100911 SMTown Live in Shanghai Fan Account 1

No JYJ vs HoMin fan wars please.

Upon entering the stadium on September 11th, my eyes vision was flooded by a sea of red. Cassiopeia had united once again for one sole purpose, to prove to the world our true capability. To tell a certain company that we will not neglect the two remaining members even if the other three are missing.

Regardless of how glamorous and happy my beloved Junsu may seem, 'W' told us otherwise. Despite wanting to let go and to forget about the two remaining members, seeing reports on SMTown in Seoul changed my mind. It was pure unfairness and I'm sure Junsu wouldn't have wanted to hear that the two were being neglected in that way, and that there is the reason why I decided to go to SMTown: to cheer on HoMin in the place of JYJ so that they'll realize and understand how determined we Cassiopeia are.

I was really enthusiastic at the beginning, watching Super Junior's outstanding performances and marveling at SNSD's loyal fanboys. One hour, two hours, three hours…. Time slowly dragged on, SHINee sang one song after another, and Super Junior seemed to be the focal point of the concert. Even after Zhou Mi's solo, there was still no sign of the two. In the three hours, all we'd seen of HoMin was a flash up on the big screen.

When Yunho started to ascend, suspended by his wires, the pent up emotions in me erupted. As they flew past me, I felt as though I'd gone back in time to Mirotic in Nanjing on April 4th 2009. I thought I was seeing the five of them together.

I waved my red glowstick with everything in me, screaming the fan chants to Mirotic as loudly as I could. It was exactly as it was back then, it was as though the others had never left~~~

'Hello everyone, we are Dong Bang Shin Ki' It was the same introduction, the introduction we'd all become accustomed to, yet hearing it today had me confused, it felt different. Everything flashed before my eyes like the scenes in a movie and I realized that I was at a loss for words. I kept waving my glowstick soundlessly, and then I heard Changmin say 'Changmin, Yunho, us, happy!!!' in broken Chinese. They felt the same way we did, they were on the same roller coaster ride of emotions. That was it, they finished their greetings and went backstage~

HoMin's performance was followed by Changmin's solo. His stage put me in awe, I'd never realized what a star he was, he'd always been overshadowed by his hyungs. Oh boy, you've really grown, your singing is getting better and better~~~ You shocked the world with your 45-second high note and told us how much you wanted to sing and how much you loved it. You used every fibre in your being to sing to us. Tears began to stream down my face then~~ Min ah~~ Noona knows~~We understand that you're suffering but there's nothing we can do besides supporting you the way we are doing now. Right now, there's nothing I can do but cry for you and with you.

In the group performance at the end, I searched endlessly for Changmin. I didn't want to see the sadness in his eyes, I didn't want to see his grief, yet the big screen managed to capture him in full clarity. He had his head buried in his hand and his shoulders were shaking, just as they were the last time our boys stood on the MKMF stage as five. He'd lost control and he was crying. Back then, we didn't understand why, my friends and I were completely astonished that you'd do that, but now we get it. We realize that you'd acted that way because of the impending separation. You were helpless, you were in pain, and you needed a way of releasing those emotions. Every single member of Cassiopeia broke down with you as they wailed your name and screamed for you to stay strong. Luckily, someone saw you crying before it was too late and drenched you with a bucket of water to conceal your despair and to protect you. We were watching as you wiped away your tears and gave us your brightest smile. It only made us cry harder. I felt numb You, Changmin, you've grown up… and not just physically… you've even learnt to smile through tears~~~

Cassiopeia refused to leave even as the lights were switched on to signal the end of the concert. We held up our 'Stand By U' banners and continued to scream… miduhyo~

No one will understand what 'Dong Bang Shin Ki' means to us, no one will understand the connection between us and our boys. It's a relationship that cannot be adequately described in words. When we finally left, I heard a girl behind me say 'Cassiopeia cries all the time…' Yes, we do, because our boys aren't just our idols, they're a part of our lives, a part of our lives that we cannot be deprived of. It's like the feeling of first love, you'll only ever experience it once. Only once.

I haven't been able to calm myself down since I got back...

[TRANS] Cassiopeia: We Will Wait

There's been a lot of negativity around here lately, so I've translated this to remind some of you what it means to be part of Cassiopeia. Please stop fighting.

911 is over, SMTown is over. Listening to the screams of desperation on the audio stream had so many of us crying rivers. This explosion of emotion is the result of a year's worth of waiting...

Yes, because they're TVXQ, they are our TVXQ, whether it be 2 or 3, we'll accept them all the same. As long as you're good and well, as long as you're able to stand on that stage, even if there's only one of you, we'll love you all the same, because it is Jung Yunho, Shim Changmin, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu that we love, but above all, it's TVXQ.

Watching rookies appear one after another in Korea, watching their popularity rise and yours drop has made no difference to us. We cannot and will not forget. Seeing other artists perform on stage may give us a moment of satisfaction, but then we see the five of you, and you never fail to leave us in awe with your talent. The reason you're so well loved across Asia is because you're worth it. This is why your fan cafe numbers are still sky high at 780,000. Because we're willing to love you for the rest our lives~~~

We will never give up until we see that you've found your happiness, and when the day comes, we'll bury you deep down in our hearts~~~

I know there is a lot that Cassiopeia is afraid of talking about, we're afraid of watching videos, afraid of seeing photos or even reading news. We find solace in other artists. I've been through that too, I was afraid of the internet, but I was never able to forget, ever. It was a period of constant heartache…

Even if you cannot let go, try and accept them the way they are. Regardless of the current situation, the men that we love have remained. Their smiles and laughter may be a little empty, a little forced, but they've also become that much stronger, and so we should wait. We must wait for their return, and when they do, we'll give them and give ourselves the most beautiful red ocean and cherish the world that belongs to us alone. Until then, we must wait, even if loving them means not being able to let go, eventually we'll get used to the pain and learn to love that too~~~

We look forward to seeing another red ocean on October 23rd, one for the other three at the exact same place, Hongkou~~. We'll scream Dong Bang Shin Ki with everything we've got and we'll wait.

Because we were separated to be reunited and we will continue to believe.

[TRANS] 100909 Park Min Young - "Carrying Such A Heavy Person Made My Body Ache All Over"

KBS 2TV Monday-Tuesday drama "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" main actress Park Min Young expresses her thoughts on acting with Park Yoochun.

Park Min Young states that during the drinking scene in episode 4, the filming was really tough.

In the drama on the day of the broadcast, the scholars who had just been admitted into Sungkyunkwan held a celebratory gathering. Always the firm believer in adhering to his principles, Lee Seon Joon (played by Park Yoochun) overheard scholars of the same division as him talking about him behind his back. Seon Joon's pride and self-respect made him drink the jar of wine in one go. Later on, he was so miserably drunk that he had to be carried back to dorms by Kim Yoon Shik (played by Park Min Young), who was a woman pretending to be a man.

Park Min Young laughingly said, "at the day of the shooting, Yoochun was so immersed into the acting that his whole body weight was on me. Carrying such a heavy person on my back made my body ache all over." Later, she added, "although it was difficult, Seon Joon and Yoon Shik became friends, finding an opportunity that confirms their feelings for each other. That's what made this scene so important. In complete contrast to the principled image, Yoochun's impressively natural acting really made the scene very enjoyable."

The production crew on the day of the shooting said that "there were a lot of NG scenes in between the two, but we were able to happily complete the shooting at the end."

In addition, "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" will present the many interesting encounters of Kim Yoon Shik and Lee Seon Joon who share a room together.

Every week Mondays and Tuesdays, KBS broadcast at 9:55PM, "Sungkyunkwan Scandal".

At a press conference in Beverly Hills, L.A., Kim Young Min (40) of SM Entertainment stated that, "Contrary to what is expected, Girls' Generation's future plans in Asia will not focus solely on Japan." He implied that Girls' Generation would take the complete opposite road to carve a place for themselves in Japan from TVXQ, who he pointed out had focused completely on Japanese activities after their debut there and had then become the top of Asia.

He emphasized that, "Girls' Generation's primary goal is to become 'No.1 in Asia', so it is essential that we construct a system for them where their popularity and talents are verified in other Asian countries so that they naturally become popular in Japan. They will not follow the footsteps of TVXQ, who began to focus on gaining awareness in Asia only after their success in Japan."

[TRANS] 100903 Oricon States, "Korean Girl Groups' Popularity Is All Thanks To TVXQ"

Japan's renowned music chart Oricon is garnering attention for stating that TVXQ is the reason why Korean girl groups could attain popularity in Japan.

On the 2nd, their column 'The Eyes of the Editor-in-Chief' introduced the recent Japanese activities of Korean girl groups such as Kara, 4Minute and Girls' Generation and pointed out the majority of their Japanese fans are women in their teens and twenties.

Oricon stated, "TVXQ must be credited for K-pop and its girl groups' successful launch in Japan. It seems that the fans have been feeling a sense of loss since TVXQ suspended all activities, so the fans in their teens and twenties are focusing their attention on Korean girl groups."

Following this, the columnist added that, "Otherwise, it would have been impossible for these girl groups to have suddenly sold 30,000 copies of their album or have 20,000 people come to their events."

[FANACCOUNT] 100902 - SMTown at LAX


Ok so Charmaine (writer @dbskknights) suggested that I write a fanaccount on my experience today and everything I did. I wasn’t going to LAX today because I thought that I wouldn’t make it in time. I took the flyaway bus from Union station at about 9:15 and arrived at LAX a little before 10. I have never been to lax and I was alone so it was a bit overwhelming. I got off at Tom Bradley International on the 2nd floor but was confused because I didn’t see anyone. I was freaking out because I thought they left already. But then I realized that the arrivals were on the 1st floor OTL lol.

I soon saw all of the fans waiting here

They WERE supposed to come out from here but we got tricked!!

There were rumors that they were going to land at 11 am but instead they landed at 10:20 (scheduled to land at 10:30 am) So there everyone was waiting for them to come out. It was like 11 and still no sign of them. I was getting suspicious that they were going to come out from somewhere else. While I was waiting I met some people next to me who said that last time that SHINee came for KMF they used another exit. (the exit was a little to the left of the lighted wall. Then a guy ran up to a man who had a professional camera and started talking to him really fast, they left almost running out of there. I became suspicious so me and a friend who also came alone and I met there, followed them to the other arrival area. There we saw guys in all black with radios and I saw the people who were next to me but disappeared (the ones who told me about the other arrival area).

They were sitting down and telling me to be quiet. I asked what was going on and they said that the artists were coming from here for sure. They already saw about 4 SNSD members come out. So we waited for about a minute and then U-know and Max came out. I was about to drop dead on the spot. It hit me right there that after all those times watching them on my computer screen I was finally seeing them in the flesh. No one screamed when they came out. Partly because I was in shock and they look really hot and I was intimidated by there beauty so I didn’t approach them sadly. U-know just oozed out sexiness and Max has grown up so much. He started smiling after he saw us and started following U-know who still had the same serious and cool expression.

About five minutes later everyone realized that they were coming out from here and that’s when it started getting crazy. Everyone ran to where we were and the some Korean guys in all tan (no idea who they were..body guards probably) Started getting mad and one of them was repeating “aish” over and over again. Then about 3 minutes passed and some of the SNSD members came out. I’m not to familiar with them but they weren’t smiling :( The airport police told everyone that no one was going to come out till we split up towards the middle (it was giant blob of screaming fangirls and fanboys)

After that f(x) came out and I don’t really know them either. The one with the orange blondish hair was smiling and saying hi to her fans though.

Then BoA came out. That was when it got crazy. She didn’t go through the middle of the space that the fans created but through side so the fans then started running after her and not letting her walk.

The came out 4 out of the 12 Super Junior members (included Henry and Zhou Mi). Super Junior is my favorite group so of course I was excited. First came out leader Leeteuk and man this guy never fails to amaze me. He was smiling and greeting fans with the biggest smile on his face. Eunhyuk was right behind him along with Shindong and Donghae (Eunhae can’t be separated). All the boys look so much skinnier in person even Shindong, it’s true that the camera adds 10 pounds. Donghae was way shorter than I thought but who cares because he’s still hot. Yes I was close enough to touch all the artists and I was tempted too but I didn’t because I felt bad.

Then came out Shinee!!! I think a lot of the people there (comparing with the other groups) were more excited to see Shinee. The screaming got louder and so did the pushing. First came out Jonghyun and he was covering his face (he didn’t feel good??), next Key and I swear this boy screams DIVA lol, then Taemin O_O This boy is gorgeous and so cute. You just want to give him a hug. He was wearing a white face mask but you could still tell that he was laughing. I didn’t get to see Minho and Onew because there was a semi-circle around them and they were being covered. Some people started pushing once they got closer to the car and began touching them.

After them came out some snsd members but no one was screaming as loudly for some weird reason. Still shocked from SHINee?? I know I was.

Then came out the second batch from Super Junior. They were lead by Siwon who was such a gentlemen. He was bowing his head slightly to his fans, Yesung followed him and didn’t look like he was okay :( Then came out my number one bias Kyuhyun. He was covering his pretty face with a hat and sunglasses. It felt like he was gone within seconds . Sungmin also came out after him. Next came out Heechul, Henry ( I just want to squeeze those chubby cheeks), Zhou Mi (he looked really tall compared to the others), Ryewook.

They were the very last ones to leaves. They left in mini vans (those soccer mom ones lol). They weren’t expecting it to be so crazy therefore some people were so close that they could touch them. I’m still on cloud nine and wish I can go back because it went by too quick. Can’t wait to see them actually perform this Saturday!!! XD I know this is really long but I didn’t want to leave anything out for those of who didn’t get to go.

[TRANS] 100903 Ueno Juri, 'I thought Jaejoong hates me'

Japanese actress Ueno Juri talked about her impression of acting with Jaejoong in Fuji TV drama 'Sunao ni narenakute'.

Ueno Juri expressed her feelings to the reporters in Seoul Lotte Hotel in the morning of 3rd September that, 'Whenever there are scenes in which Jaejoong has to hold my hand or carry me, his face will turn red and run to the back while making 'aaaa...' sound. He will hide behind the wall, so we didn't interact that much. I even thought he hates me. Later when we become closer, and I asked him why he behaved that way, I was told that he deliberately kept a certain distance from me since he was acting as a character who likes me in the drama.

She praised that actor Jaejoong is a friend with outstanding insight. She said, 'During an interview, Jaejoong mentioned that I am a person full of passion. From my point of view, Jaejoong is a caring friend. He even damages his own image to lighten up the atmosphere, he also has great insight. There was a scene where he needs to make a quick turn when fighting using briefcase, which can originally be done in a blink of eye. However, when it was broadcasted, he called and told me that the photographer was also shot in the scene. When I watched back the scene he mentioned later on, I couldn't find it. Instead it was the staff who found it. His eyesight is superb to be able to notice it, because the scene only last for a short time.'

Besides that, he brought both Japanese and Korean scripts to the filming site, and memorized his lines well. His acting skills is outstanding. He is good in sports too, and is able to accomplish all the actions by himself. In my opinion, he is a very good actor.'

Ueno Juri and Hero Jaejoong acted in the drama 'Sunao ni narenakute'. The drama is about the process of a true friendship built among the people who met each other through network. Popular japanese actors including Eita were acting in this drama too.
