110525 JYJ Japan Charity Concert – Reason Why Event Time Was Revealed But Not Event Location

Only revealing the event date, without a location. This is not a “guerrilla” performance, but an actual performance where tickets have to be purchased.

However, it is currently in a situation which cannot be understood easily. This is the Japanese charity concert of Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu of JYJ.

JYJ will be holding a charity concert on 7 June. This concert was created in support of victims of the big earthquake that hit Japan in March. However, their management company C-JeS Entertainment has only revealed the event date, and has said nothing about where the concert will be held.

This is what happened. Initially, JYJ, who had broken away from TVXQ, had started selling tickets (for this event) for a concert at Yokohama Arena. However, they suddenly received a notice that they would be unable to perform at Yokohama arena, and the management company switched locations to Saitama Arena.  However, they once again received a notice from the location management dissolving the agreement.


This matter is related to JYJ’ s management company in Japan, Avex Entertainment. Avex, who announced the suspension of JYJ’s activities in October last year, heard about this Charity Concert, and sent a official notice to the locations requesting that they “Do not hold this concert.”

In response to this, JYJ’s management company, together with the charity concert organiser Zak Corporation, filed for a provisional injunction against Avex Entertainment for unfair handling last month at Japan’s Tokyo District Courts.

With their concert venue being coerced into cancellation, the performance would have to be cancelled completely, but the management company has decided to push ahead with the plans to hold the concert.

According to personnel related to JYJ, the concert venue has already been decided. Those who have purchased tickets will be notified of the location soon via SNS. It will not be held at the currently stated arena, and because it will be an outdoor location, audio technicalities may occur, but after consideration of the waiting fans, they have decided to go ahead with this concert.

C-JeS Entertainment, expressed via their Japanese website, that “This concert is not just a one-time event, please take this to be a sign that JYJ will be restarting activities in Japan from now on. Even if the location for this concert may not be the best, please believe in our sincerity, and we hope that everyone will be able to support us.”

On another note, on 7 June at Osaka’s Kyocera Dome, Yunho and Changmin’s TVXQ will be participating in a joint K-Pop concert, incidentally creating a face-off of TVXQ members in Japan.

110528 “I’ve Never Seen Anyone With As Much Emotion Naturally Embedded In Their Voice As Junsu.”

Image Hosted by

These days, the focal point of K-pop is vocal talent. The vocal talent of singers has come under scrutiny through auditions or survival programs and the movement is so fervent that one wonders if there ever really was a time when the meaning of a singer as ‘a person who sings’ was lost to the appearance of idol groups. Some shake nervously as they sing in front of audience evaluators on TV survival programs while one congressman declared that lip syncing should be banned to stop the constant activities of singers who can dance but not sing.

Many think that singers are born with extraordinary vocal skills. But the nation’s best vocal trainer Park Seon Joo(40), who is also a singer, composer and teacher to many stars, says, “That’s not true.” She has been a vocal trainer for 10 years, during a time when most people didn’t even know what a vocal trainer was, and has raised many famous stars such as TVXQ, Cool, SG Wannabe, Yoon Mirae, Kim Bum Soo and Ref. She recently taught top stars such as Lee Bum Soo, Lee Byung Hun and Jung Woo Sung.



Countless singers and actors have passed through Park Seon Joo’s hands, leaving her with that many deep memories. “I met JYJ’s Xiah Junsu when he was in the 8th grade. Because he was going through puberty, we focused on vocalization methods. I’ve never seen anyone with as much emotion naturally embedded in their voice as Junsu.”

110528 ‘The Male Star With The Most Suspicious Face-off’ Is JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong

Image Hosted by

‘Gossip House’, OnStyle’s TV tabloid, released the results for the cheeky poll titled ‘The Male Star with the most Suspicious Face-off’.

In a survey about the nation’s most handsome male stars who have the most suspicious face-offs, who were chosen for looking different from their past selves, 545 netizens voted through the portal site Daum from the 11th to the 16th.

The 7 nominees for the survey were JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho, Jang Dong Gun, Jisung, Kim Hyun Joong, Jang Geun Seok and Lee Teuk.

The man to come in first place by a landslide was JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong with his sharp facial features. He received 57% (275 votes) of the total votes.


Netizens who chose him left comments such as, “He’s like a perfect sculpture now, such a handsome guy. But in old photos, he looks like the ordinary guy next door” and “I can’t find the stage presence that he has now in his old photos.”

Second place went to TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho with 13% (63 votes) of the votes. In the case of U-Know Yunho, who has had his teeth realigned, he looks like and gives off a feel of a completely different person since the treatment, leaving many with envious suspicions of his face-off.

One netizen stated, “You’d only become that handsome after such treatment if you had the basic good-looks to begin with. Though I don’t want to admit it, I’m jealous.”

Kim Hyun Joong(8%), Jisung(6%), Lee Teuk(6%) and Jang Dong Gun(5%) took 3rd~6th place respectively.

110528 Ripley’s Park Yoochun : “My Character In The Drama Hides His Pain, Like I Do” – A Meaningful Remark

Image Hosted by

In “Miss Ripley,” Park Yoochun participates in an appointment ceremony to become the youngest Director, exuding a warm charisma.

In the new MBC drama “Miss Ripley” that starts airing on 30 May, Park Yoochun uses a warm, endearing smile and persuasive leadership skills to express the style of the second generation conglomerate Director.

In “Miss Ripley,” Park Yoochun’s character Song Yoo Hyun possesses good looks, a slender figure, rich family, extraordinary capabilities, a kind heart and other qualities, all put together into a “perfect man”. Song Yoo Hyun is the heir to “Mondo Resorts,” which owns resorts all over the world, and is introduced as the “youngest director,” showing his extraordinary skills.


In the ceremony to appoint Song Yoo Hyun as Director, his thoughtful manner of speech and naturally polite manner earns him the respect of others, exuding a “gentle charisma.” Instead of the cool charisma that intimidates others, Song Yoo Hyun’s power comes from not letting his true abilities show, but instead showing a controlled charisma through his eyes and actions, a Director with a different style of power.

It is said that in every scene, Park Yoochun exudes charisma with a warm and friendly smile, and is perfectly immersed in the character Song Yoo Hyun. According to an insider, when director Choi Yee Seob met Park Yoochun for the first time, he discovered (Yoochun’s) unique smile that brightens the day, and adorable manner of speaking and thought to himself, “this is really similar to the character of Song Yoo Hyun,” with great anticipation.

Also, with regards the role of Song Yoo Hyun which he was going to play, Park Yoochun said, “Song Yoo Hyun and I share many similarities. For example, instead of expressing his emotions, he often hides it in his heart. Also, he is always smiling even though he is hurting inside,  which is similar to me,” and “this is why I’m always afraid that I will use my own (Park Yoochun) manner of speech instead while filming.”

The production company said, “Park Yoochun’s image suits the role of the “perfect man” Song Yoo Hyun who possesses good looks, ability, character and more,”  “Park Yoochun managed to naturally express the “charisma of controlled emotions hidden beneath a smile,” please look forward to it.”
