110218 Park Yoohwan “Park Yoochun Is A Fatherly Brother, I’m Proud Of Him”

Park Yoohwan said that his brother Park Yoochun is “A fatherly brother.”

Though he has made his debut as an actor, Park Yoohwan is more well known as Park Yoochun’s younger brother. News articles and interviews being released about him all include references to Park Yoochun. Though it wouldn’t have been surprising if Park Yoohwan felt a little disappointed by this, he smiled brightly and said, “I am proud of the fact that Park Yoochun is my older brother.”

Park Yoochun is five years older than his younger brother. Park Yoohwan said, “During my childhood, I lived in Virginia with my family. We were the only Asian people in our area. People were so racist against us that I walked around with a dark expression on my face. But when I was at home, I could smile brightly. My older brother took care of me like a father.

Park Yoohwan confessed that he was momentarily happy when his brother left to Korea to become a celebrity. As they had been sharing a room together till then, Park Yoohwan first thought, “Everything is mine now.” But that young heart soon turned into a deep longing for his brother.

Afterwards, Park Yoochun succeeded as a singer. A few years ago, their family all returned to Korea, Park Yoohwan included. He said, “I was scared at first because I had left Korea at such a young age. I would sometimes speak impolitely to those much older than me. My brother retaught me of the proprieties of Korea with a firm hand.”

Park Yoohwan’s feelings about his brother seem to be pure and innocent. He said, “At home, he’s just a regular older brother. But when he gets on stage, it’s like he becomes a completely different person.” Park Yoochun is strict to his brother but never forgets to shower him with love.

Park Yoohwan watched Park Yoochun grace the stage. He also saw his older brother suffering over leaving TVXQ. But when Park Yoohwan told Park Yoochun that he wanted to become an actor, Park Yoochun didn’t stop him. Instead, he gave his younger brother some honest advice. “The entertainment industry is a rough place. Think over your decision seriously. But if you still want to become an actor after that, I’ll be there for you.”

And it seems that Park Yoochun is going to stick to his word. He attended the press conference of the drama Park Yoohwan currently appears in, ‘Shiny Shiny Shining’. He even appeared on location of the drama to see his brother. Park Yoohwan thanked him for coming and even said that he was hoping for a cameo appearance from his older brother.

110218 Park Yoohwan “Park Yoochun Even Spoke In The SungKyunKwan Scholar Dialect At Home”

Park Yoohwan began taking acting lessons at the same time as his brother, JYJ’s Park Yoochun.

Last year, Park Yoochun began taking acting lessons for his role in the drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and Park Yoohwan decided to tag along and learn with him. Park Yoohwan said, “My brother was overflowing with confidence because he’s experienced when it comes to tv appearances. But I didn’t even know what Cameras 1, 2, and 3 were. I couldn’t do anything because I was so nervous.”

Though they had the same start, Park Yoochun almost immediately became Lee Seon Joon of ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’. The drama received great reviews and captured the hearts of many women. Park Yoochun seemed to have taken a liking to his character as he even spoke in a historical dialect at home. Park Yoohwan explained that, “My brother would even speak in a historical dialect at home as if he was Lee Seon Joon. He even acted like he was the real Lee Seon Joon of the Joseon Dynasty. At home, I don’t get the feeling that my brother is a celebrity.”

It was while he was studying acting that Park Yoohwan began fostering the dream of becoming an actor. But it wasn’t easy. He underestimated the situation thinking, ‘I could do that,’ as he watched his brother act in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, but in reality, nothing was working out for him. Fortunately, he passed his audition and was given the opportunity to start acting. Park Yoohwan is currently playing the role of Lee Seo Woo in the new MBC weekend drama ‘Shiny Shiny Shining’.

In the drama, Lee Seo Woo is a character who has lived in the United States. He is a character who holds a deep pain within his heart and does not show it to others. Park Yoohwan showed confidence in his interpretation of the character as he said, “I’m quite similar to him. When I lived in the US, I was a target of racism. At home, I was a bright kid around my family but once I stepped outside my door, I was a dismal kid.”

Park Yoohwan said that he wants to learn more. He said he wants to learn by receiving any and all parts, whether it is comical or slapstick. Park Yoohwan laughed as he said, “I want to stand on one stage with my brother one day. I think it would be funny if we play characters who are rivals. But I want to be the victor of the story.” Though he said it in a joking manner, he revealed that, “I want to beat my brother as an actor.”

110218 Lee Seon Ah “U-Know Yunho’s Girlfriend? We’re Just Good Friends”

“U-Know Yunho’s girlfriend? No. We’re just good friends.”

Actress Lee Seon Ah laughed loudly and waved off the remark. At the slighly awkward question ‘You seem to be close with U-Know Yunho?’, she smiled and began talking.

“Yunho and I are hometown friends. I knew him until I was in college but we stopped contacting each other once Yunho got busy.”

The question about the two came from the ‘Star shot’ they took together. (T/N: ‘Star shot’ is the sticker photo which you can decorate and write on, like the ones Yunho and Yoochun took together in 2004.) The ‘Star shot’ U-Know Yunho and Lee Seon Ah took together 7 years ago is spreading amongst TVXQ fans and has become a hot topic.

“It’s a photo we took at COEX while Yunho was still a trainee. ‘Star shot’ was all the rage back then, and it was something everyone did; it was like a rite of passage.”

The last time Lee Seon Ah saw U-Know Yunho was when she was attending an acting academy before enterting college as a theater and film studies major. There, she met another one of U-Know Yunho’s hometown friends by chance.

“Once, Yunho visited our acting academy to cheer us on not long after his debut. Back then, I used to like Micky Yoochun so I teased him and said, ‘Why didn’t you bring Micky Yoochun with you?’ We still used to speak in a Jeolla province dialect back then. hahaha.”

(omitted)

“Whenever Yunho or I felt like life was getting too hard, we’d say, ‘Let’s work hard and meet again as members of society.’ Since I’m working hard right now, I’m sure he’ll say, ‘You’ve gone through a lot, great job,’ if I run in to him one day, right?”

110218 Cosmetic Company That Allegedly Caused TVXQ’s Disbandment Is Acquitted Of All Charges

Crebeau, the cosmetic company accused of being the cause of TVXQ’s disbandment, has been acquitted.

With SM’s formal objection against JYJ’s exclusive contract suspension injunction already dismissed, it has been found that Crebeau, which SM accused of being the cause of the lawsuit, has been acquitted of all charges.

In July, 2009, three members of the popular idol group TVXQ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) filed an exclusive contract suspension injunction to the Seoul District Courts against SM Entertainment. SM then announced that the trio filed the lawsuit because of the financial temptation that the cosmetic company presented them with.

Crebeau then sued SM of distorting the facts and blaming the company of being the cause of the lawsuit in order to hide the internal problems SM singers face, to avoid the criticism of the fans and to denounce the claims made by JYJ. But when SM was acquitted from these charges, it countersued the cosmetic company for false accusations, defamation and obstruction of business.

It was decided that there was not enough evidence to prove that Crebeau sued SM on false truths.

On the other hand, Woo Eun Mi from ‘Superstar K’ has decided to be sponsored by Crebeau. The cosmetic company sent their prayers for Woo Eun Mi and JYJ’s successful tv appearances.

110219 SM’s Court Verdict Refutation Unleashes A Flood Of Criticism From The Public

On the 17th, the Seoul District Courts dismissed both the formal objection and exclusive contract suspension injunction filed by SM Entertainment against JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu). Regarding this, SM Entertainment immediately released a refutation document stating, “SM and JYJ’s legal battle is still not over,” and “The decision laid down by the Courts on the 17th was made only with regards to the injunction; it does not mean that the exclusive contract between SM and JYJ is invalid.” They continued to add, “We are currently involved in the trial on this issue and a witness examination date has been set for mid-March. We will use only the objective truth and facts to prove the validity of the exclusive contract.”

But SM’s refutation has unleashed a flood of criticism aimed at the entertainment agency from K-Pop fans. Not only are JYJ fans criticizing the entertainment agency, but even the public is seeing SM in a bad light. Most state that SM should see the big picture instead of just focusing on the details. Most of the criticisms against SM can be found on social networking sites.

A Twitterian posted a tweet dripping with sarcasm regarding SM’s attempt to lessen the power of the Courts’ verdict that stated, “Just like their name implies, the company’s SM (SadoMasochism) will continue.” Another user stated, “SM is a Stalker Management company.” Movie critic and professor Shim Young Seop wrote on his Twitter account, “Will SM really follow the Courts’ verdict?” “If SM continues to block JYJ and not follow the Courts’ verdict, couldn’t fans file a lawsuit against SM?”

Another Twitterian emphasized that, “Even the largest boulder will crack and break if water drops continuously fall on it. I believe that the Courts’ decision will not only break the boulder that is SM, but also become the foundation of a more transparent K-pop industry.”

Netizens of various sites pointed out that, “Don’t look at celebrities like mere objects to sell. There is a need to respect their worth and human rights.” They are also raising their voices to say, “The only thing greed brings about is destruction. We hope that SM, a representative entertainment agency of Korea, does not partake in foolish acts that will do nothing but cause the public to distrust them.”

Many are criticizing SM’s outdated patriarchal leadership and pointing out that changes need to be made for a fair and harmonious entertainment industry. The opinion is rising that an effective alternative must be set to move the Korean entertainment industry into a new era.

110224 Yamashita Tomohisa wants to work with JYJ’s Jaejoong

Yamashita Tomohisa (a.k.a. Yamapi) revealed through a recent interview that he’d like to work withJYJ’s Jaejoong in the future.  ”Jaejoong and I promised to work together someday. I really want to do it if there is any chance,” he said.  The two became close while TVXQ was promoting in Japan, even attending a Lady Gaga benefit concert together. Additionally, Yamapi’s sister, Yamashita Rina, and his mother are huge TVXQ fans.

Yamapi is a member of NEWS, one of Japan’s biggest pop groups, and he’s contracted under Johnny’s Entertainment, Japan’s largest agency. He’s currently visiting Korea to promote his solo album, “SUPERGOOD, SUPERBAD“, and recently performed “Party Don’t Stop” on Mnet’s ”M! Countdown“.

He first gained recognition in Korea through his role in “Code Blue“, a Japanese medical drama that enjoyed a great deal of popularity both at home and abroad. Gauging his growing popularity in Korea, Mnet Media and Johnny’s were in talks about potentially debuting Yamapi. Indeed, both parties were gratified to learn that he was greeted by over 200 fans at the airport when he flew in a few days ago.

When asked about his popularity, Yamapi gave a shy laugh and said, “It’s awkward for me to talk about my popularity with my own mouth.  My goal is just to work hard and receive the fans’ love.”

Yamapi also promised fans that he’d “study Korean hard” so that he could create a full Korean album soon.
