[TRANS] 091120 Junsu's Fans Donate Money For The Hearing Impaired

The fans of TVXQ's Xiah Junsu and Hwangbo have donated money for surgery fees and verbal remediation fees for hearing-impaired children and once again showed the warm love of fans.

According to the Snails of Love foundation, Xiah Junsu's fan community 'Xiah Soul' and Hwangbo's fan community 'Estella' showed their deep love and interest for the hearing impaired by donating money to cover fees for surgery and verbal remediation for children and teenagers.

To celebrate Xiah Junsu's birthday last year on December 15th, Xiah Soul decided that they would help a good cause rather than give their celebrity materialistic items and donated 8 million Won for the surgery and verbal remediation of Kim Dan Hee (6th Grade) to help her find her lost hearing.

Although Dan Hee's sister Dan Ah (9th Grade) was also hearing impaired, she gave up the chance to get her hearing back and let her sister be treated first. When Xiah Soul heard of this, they decided to donate money to sponsor the surgery and verbal remediation of Dan Ah for Xiah Junsu's birthday this year.

'Xiah Soul' donated 10 million Won to the Snails of Love foundation and showed their warm hearts by helping those in need.

(omitted)Xiah Soul's Master Ahui (nicname) said, "We hope that Xiah Junsu's contract problems are solved well, and continue to be remembered as a singer who the hearing impaired can listen to once they are treated," and "Dan Ah, and Dan Hee are so pretty and lovable, we wanted to give Dan Ah a chance to hear as well and we are so happy that she is able to go through with the surgery."

[NEWS] SME uploading DBSK videos on official YouTube?

Seven hours ago SM Entertainment began to upload DBSK's old music videos on their official You Tube account, sment. Beginning with DBSK's debut video Hug, they uploaded My Little Princess and My Little Princess Acapella as well. Will SME continue to upload DBSK's videos in chronological order, even to their latest music video Wrong Number?

While it is nice to watch high quality music videos without watermarks on You Tube, these actions are rather disconcerting. It's especially puzzling after they denied the existence of DBSK in their You Tube upload Show Me Your Love only two months ago.

Watch the videos yourself:

Hug


My Little Princess


My Little Princess Acapella


I dunno Cassies...
What do you make of this? Is there finally some reconciliation between DBSK and SME?
Or is SM Entertainment just trying to cash in on DBSK's popularity?

[INFO] Who looks cool on a lift? You know who!

In a recent episode of the new popular variety show Kang Shim Jang (Strong Heart), celebrities were discussing the various difficulties involved in using a 'lift' during a performance.

One story was about the use of a lift for five members to spring up and surprise the audience. They suddenly come up from below, land handsomely and look cool.


And whose footage did they show as an example for this? Why, DBSK's of course!

See at 1:14 -



Here's the original footage from the 2007 Dream Concert:


And from 2008 Dream Concert:


Of course DBSK is used as an example for someone who is cool and handsome^^
Our boys are the coolest guys around!


Thank you Lawrence and Linhiee for the tip!
And thank you Anonymous @ 12:07 AM for the additional footage :)

[TRANS] 091120 JaeChuSu "We Never Signed The Shenzhen Concert Contract"

"The Shenzhen Concert Note of Confirmation, we never signed it ourselves."

Three members of group TVXQ stated that an unauthorized use of their signatures was used for the documents relevant to the Shenzhen concert. Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong, and Micky Yoochun's representative stated on the 19th that, "We realized only recently that the signatures of the three members of TVXQ were being used without authorization. The signatures on the Shenzhen concert note of confirmation were not signed by the three members themselves, but somebody else signed the paper instead."

The three members side found out about the unauthorized use of their signatures on the note of confirmation after their Korean and Chinese fans questioned the validity of the signatures. The note of confirmation in question was the document that recognized the singer's willingness to attend the concert in China. This document was then shown at the location of ticket sales in order to prove to ticket buyers that the singer would indeed be attending the concert. Sejong Law Firm's Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk of the three TVXQ members stated, "Setting aside the validity of the Shenzhen concert contract, this act was an action that brought misunderstanding to the fans. We are planning to take counteractions against this action officially."

Sejong also released a hand written document of Mr. A who says he signed the note of confirmation instead. He also showed the actual signatures of Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun to show that there were clear differences in the signatures. according to the hand written document, Mr. A "Signed the Shenzhen Concert note of confirmation instead of TVXQ in March." Mr. A's claims are to be investigated.

Lawyer Lim stated, "On the 19th, we requested for a judgment by an expert on the signatures on this note of confirmation and the members' original signatures. Even just by seeing it, you can tell that there is quite a big difference."

He also said, "When this lawsuit was initiated, the three members promised to perform all preassigned activities. However, the Shenzhen concert was not one of them. The members found out about the Shenzhen concert during the procedures of the lawsuit." He also said, "Even the fans new that there was a problem with the signatures on the note of confirmation. Therefore, we asked SM to show us the details of the Shenzhen concert contract but SM did not comply."

One representative of Korean music industry, "In the case that the singer in an agency is busy, there are times when a representative signs the papers instead after telling the singer of the concert or the schedule." This representative also stated, "When the relationship between the agency and the singer is good, there are no problems . In such a case, I believe that it has become a problem due to the deteriorating relationship between SM and the three members of TVXQ."

[TRANS] 091120 3 Members To Start Their Activities With 'MAMA'

YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu will be starting their individual activities.

The three TVXQ members have decided to attend cable channel Mnet's 'Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)' at the Seoul Janshil Indoor Gymnasium on the 21st at 7 pm. The three will be greeting fans 4 months after they filed the exlcusive contracts suspension request and one month after they were granted freedom to pursue individual activities by the Courts.

Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk, who is representing the three members, stated in a phone conversation with reporters that, "We are aware that Mnet contacted the three members numerous times, and after long consideration, the three members have decided to attend the event."

Lawyer Lim stated, "The Courts have already ruled that 'SM must not interfere with any individual activities that the members of TVXQ want to pursue' so there is no problem with the three members attending the event," and "The decision to attend was their own choice."

The Seoul District Courts partially accepted the exclusive contract suspension request submitted by YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu. Therefore, the members are allowed to pursue celebrity related, and unrelated activities freely until the verdict of the lawsuit.

Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk stated, "Although our stance has become completely different from that of the agency, we still hope that the three members will be able to pursue activities with U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin," and "The same hopes apply to the MAMA stage."

However, it seems hard for all five members to perform activities together for now. Also, SM is currently boycotting 'MAMA' and it seems almost impossible for the five to perform together.

The three members of TVXQ started their individual activities with the first Kpop awards of the end of the year 'MAMA' and many are wondering what they will show us next.

[NEWS/RUMOR] SM Entertainment forges signatures of TVXQ?

TVXQ's Shenzhen concert being cancelled due to legal complications between Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsoo and SM Entertainment was previously reported.

SME claimed that the three members agreed to this concert back in 2008, implying that the three backed out of their promise with SME and the fans; however, the legal counsel of the three member are claiming that signatures the three members made in the contract for the concert have been signed by someone other than the three members themselves.




The legal counsel says that they have acquired the hand-written statement of a person who claims to have signed the contract without consent of the three members. Apparently in the music industry, when artists are busy the company usually just notifies them of their future schedule and then signs related document for the artists.

Most of the time, this custom is accepted without any complaints from the artist but it has become a trouble because the three members are not in good terms with SME. Legal counsel argues that they were not informed of concert in Shenzen and found out about it during the course of preparation for lawsuit.

The case becomes even more complicated than it already was.

[TRANS] 091119 Korea Pretty Boys – Kim JaeJoong vs. Kim HeeChul

That is why I love my Joongie soo much!


The most important factor for Korean boy bands to increase their popularity rapidly in China is that every single member of the group is handsome and charming. We can tell by all the popular Korean boy groups in China that every one of them are pretty boys, not losing to any of the pretty girls on the street. Of course before a group’s debut, the agency company would normally arrange the most charming member within the group to attract the public’s attention. The beauty of Kim JaeJoong from Dong Bang Shin Ki is unquestionable and the beauty of Kim HeeChul who is from the same agency company group Super Junior is also well-known for his pretty face.

Dong Bang Shin Ki’s Kim JaeJoong
Nickname: Flower Flower (花花 = Hua Hua)


The first time you see him you’ll be visually shocked, and the effect stays the same for the second and forth. This is Kim JaeJoong, his beauty if cold yet irresistible and his coldness normally makes one feel unreachable; but once you get to know him you will get to see his warm hearted personality. He reached the height for his popularity based on his talent with his heavenly vocals and charming looks. Maybe JaeJoong was born as a beauty for the sake of the performing stage.

“Everyone might think I’m very confident with my own look because I had won the best-faced award, but that’s not true. If I’m asked to choose the past of me that I’m most confident of then it’ll have to be my eyebrows, and I have no confidence for the others. Talking about my road as a single, I was tone deaf way back during my high school time, and at that point of time I was really upset because I was said that I’m bad at singing, but this is the start of my success and as time goes by I started to enjoy singing and found the beauty of it!”

JaeJoong who was still tone deaf till ages 14 had worked hard for his dream with determination, and from a tone deaf to an angel who sings heavenly, together with Cassiopeia he had grown up realizing his dream.

Super Junior’s Kim HeeChul
Nickname: Cinderella, Princess of Mars


The beauty of Kim HeeChul is coquettish, he’s gentle like women and yet has the determination of a man, and therefore he has the ablity to attract both men and women. The first time seeing him is in the music video of ‘Twins’, a red headed person with big round eyes is enough to make one dumbstruck. “This kid is really pretty!” many people had said, but as time goes by it’s his personality, smart and his ability to eloquent well that attracts others attention.

From a certain point of view it can be said that the success of Super Junior is mainly because of Kim HeeChul and this is because he uses his ability to attract attention by his charming characteristic and soon put the focus onto the huge group of 13 members.

The beauty of Kim HeeChul had caused him to be a little obsessed with himself, but those people who are obsessed with themselves are usually adorable. On the popular Korean variety show ‘Star Golden Bell’, when ‘Princess’ was asking what the secret of his popularity was he said, “One’s look plays a big part to it, but there are many other points to it too, therefore don’t judge just on my looks only.”

Kim HeeChul is one of the precious few in Korea who are excelled in all areas, he can sing, dance, host, act and compose too. Especially the SBS drama ‘Golden Bride’ which he acted in had achieved an excellent rating of 32.2%. That drama had also received an award in China after it’s DVD release in China this year.

[TRANS] 091115 TVXQ vs SM, Thoughts of Other Celebrities

As the conflict between the 3 members of TVXQ and SM heightens, many celebrities of the entertainment industry have all agreed on one thing, no matter who is right or who is wrong, this is a regrettable issue. Therefore, the comeback for TVXQ early next year is really impossible.

Regarding this, many celebrities have expressed, “It’s a pity for such a talented group ; Worried that this excellent group will be gone just because of this.” A person from a marketing department for entertainment has said, “No matter what, we are really worried that such talented group might disband.” Even a Japanese entertainment producer has said, “TVXQ’s popularity is really huge in Japan, and we would normally compare them with our top Japanese groups.”

“Having the potential to be the top group in Asia, it’s such a misfortune that this had to happened.” Some have said, “It’s not easy to have such a wonderful group, this is not a simple issue of disbanding or continuation of a group, but a group that represents Korea, generally it’s an issue regarding the group that represents Asia.”

[FANACCOUNT] 091119 I Went To The TOHOSHINKI THE LIVE 2009! (2)

I went to the TOHOSHINKI THE LIVE 2009 (for the second time) on November 18!
This time, my theater was MOVIX Saitama.

MOVIX Saitama is located in Saitama-Shintoshin, its an approximately 30 minutes ride on the train from the center of Tokyo.

And, the famous Saitama Super Arena is located at the same station.

Firstly, I went to check out the exterior of the Saitama Super Arena. Tohoshinki’s concerts were held here in May 2008 and 2009. Today there wasn’t any events, so the place was deserted, but I could recall the concert days, with all the excitement in the air.

Well, the Saitama Super Arena is a memorable place for me, since I first went to Tohoshinki’s live concert here on 2008, and fell in love with them. I also went to this venue for the 2009 concert. Oh, only half a year has passed since the happy days, but everything has gone haywire…keeping my fingers crossed for their year end activities in Japan!

Walking for 5 minutes, I arrived at the MOVIX Saitama. Of course I had to check on the goods first.


Though there were not as many items as at the TOHO CINEMAS Kawasaki venue 2 weeks ago, there were many magazines, and also some leftovers from A-Nation. There were many ladies in the lines to purchase the magazines!

The SCREEN 1 holds up to 339 people, (1.5 times the size for MOVIX Kawasaki, which held up to 240 people). All the seats were filled! Amazing, it was daytime on a weekday!!!

For the details of the THE LIVE movie, please refer to these other fanaccounts:
091031 Toho Cinema at Roppongi Hills
091107 TOHO CINEMAS Kawasaki
091114 Roppongi Toho Cinema


The first part of the movie was of course some parts from the TOKYO DOME LIVE.
Since this was my second time, I focused on Yunho, because he is my favorite.
Even through the screen you can feel his powerful and lively dancing, wow~~~~~~~~~ he is so cool! You can see his muscular body, his tender eyes, long legs, slender fingers holding the microphone, he is soooooo sexy! Oh, sorry, maybe I should post this in Yunho’s section (Lol)



(What do you think of this costume? I personally like them, but my friend, a Junsu fan had another opinion about it, lol)


Yunho at the A-Nation Tokyo was lovely, too! During the Summer Dream, his somersault was as always, perfect! As I’ve wrote before, there were close-ups of the members for A-Nation, and Yunho was earnest and tender looking, just as it should be for our leader-sshi.

Last, was again the wonderful endroll song “Tokiwo Tomete”.

Maybe everyone is fed up with all the movie reports, so I am making this a short one. I just wrote this report to assure our international friends that Tohoshinki in Japan is in the present progressive form, activities are continuously going on. (The movie will run until November 20.)

We still have their year end activities and the fan meeting in January to look forward to. Oh, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they will be able to participate in all the year end activities.

Always keep the faith!

[NEWS] Love Melody Accused of Plagarism


The makers of the Cassiopeia charity fanalbum "Love Melody" have been accused of plagiarizing another person's song.

A person named Shin, who writes songs/music for a hobby, had posted a song titled "Cause I want you" on a song writing community on the web and was contacted by Soh, a Cassie who was involved in Love Melody project. Soh told Shin, "I came across this song and I love it. Do you mind if I use this song so I can give a little gift to TVXQ? We're not doing it to make money." Shin happily agreed to this, but a month later he found out that the song which copied the melody of his song was being sold online. What enraged him further was the fact that the Cassies posted the songwriter as "Eun Hyun," not giving any credit to Shin.

Shin contacted the fans who led this project, and said that he doesn't care whether they sell the song for money or not, he just wanted himself listed as the songwriter. He contacted Soh and Soh responded by telling him not to falsely accuse Cassies, and even said "We revised the melody and it's just sampling, why are you making such a big deal out of this" and "Go ahead and sue us, lets see who gets hurt."

Listen to the two songs side by side:





I hope the Cassies involved can be mature and properly credit the songwriter. He deserves our thanks for donating his work to our cause, and shouldn't be snubbed this way.

[NEWS] JaeChunSu accused of fraud in China

Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Junsu, the three members of TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki who took legal actions against SM Entertainment, have been sued for fraud in China along with Chinese subsidiary of the controversial cosmetics company CreBeau.


The plaintiff is a firm which is the distributor of CreBeau products in the Shanghai, Jiang Su and Sanxi region. A representative of the plaintiff stated:

"We were told by CreBeau that the three members were the board members of CreBeau, so we naturally believed that they will partake in promotions, which is the reason why we invested in this business. However, the three members did not appear on product announcement in Shanghai last July, resulting in fans complaining to us and returning the products. The overall loss that we suffered amount up to 1 million Yuan ($150,000). Yoochun and Junsu apologized to us regarding the matter but this fraud left us with too much damage, so we sent CreBeau a notice on October 22nd telling them to pay for the damage caused by their misrepresentation. However, we did not receive an answer and CreBeau closed their office in Beijing, so we had no choice but to sue them."

To this claim, CreBeau answered:

"We are analyzing this matter right now but it appears that they are making unreasonable claims. We have warned them about overly promoting the involvement of TVXQ members and it appears that they are suing them because we have stopped our ties with them due to various reasons. They say that we closed our office but in fact it just moved to another district of Beijing. Other distributors are doing fine in China."
