Smiley’s note:
T/N: Yunho read this letter to the fans in the first part of the fan meeting (on June 26), all in Japanese. A fan took the notes, so she is stating that this may not be 100% correct. But I myself have heard Yunho’s message in the same fan meeting, and find it just about the same as what I’ve heard.

I am happy that I can stand in front of all of you.
The offer for this drama came in the first days of last year.
At first, I was worried whether or not I can measure up to your expectations.
But all of your beliefs and long looks, for me making new challenges, have given me power.
I was conscious to be Bong Gun and act like him, so that I can get into the character.
When the shooting started, it was a very tough shot.
During the filming of the river, I drank so much water that it was painful, and it was also very cold.
I was able to see the surroundings by discussing and arguing together with the staffs, I could not have achieved just only with my own power.
How did you all feel, watching Bong Gun?
Since it was my first challenge, I am not 100% satisfied.
But through the role of Bong Gun, I think I was able to grow up.
As Bong Gun and Yunho, I have done my best, so I have no regrets.

Not only as an artist and actor, I would like to extend my activities so that I would be able to meet all of you many times.
I may be through many trials and tribulations in the future, and I may sometimes become depressed.
But, through this drama “Heading To The Ground”, and taking the advantage of my experiences, I would do my best, with strong and positive feelings.

The current Yunho is because of all of your supports.
Even during sad, happy, or difficult days, I think I will be able to do my best even more, thinking about all of your supports.
I am very grateful.
Please continue to support me in the future.

Three members of 'TVXQ' have filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment following their exclusive contract injunction.

According to the Seoul District Courts, Xiah Junsu (Kim Junsu), Micky Yoochun (Park Yoochun) and YoungWoong Jaejoong (Kim Jaejoong) filed an exclusive contract validity suspension lawsuit on the 25th.

Sejong, the law firm in charge of the trio's legal actions, stated, "The exclusive contract period is thirteen years from the date they debuted, however, if military service is taken into consideration, the length of the contract is in fact fifteen years," and "This violates Clause 103 of the civil code." Clause 103 of the civil code states that any legal acts that violate good customs or public order will become invalid. Sejong also stated, "If the contract is canceled, the members must pay an extravagant compensation fee that is three times the amount of total investments and twice the amount of what the group would have earned in the remaining period of the contract."

The trio submitted an exclusive contract suspension injunction last July which was partially granted in October. SM Entertainment also filed an objection to the partial acceptance verdict and a lawsuit to confirm the continued validity of the exclusive contract in April.

SM, I hate you with a burning passion of a thousand fiery suns...

DBSK’s Uknow Yunho stood before the Japanese fans after some time. Uknow Yunho appeared on the 26th at the Tokyo International Forum for a premium fan event to celebrate the realease of ‘HTTG’ DVD.

At the event which had approximately 10,000 people, Uknow Yunho appeared in front of the Japanese fans for the first time since DBSK’s activities were suspended.

According to the local press reports, Uknow Yunho smiled brightly and stated, “I’m happy that I can meet you (fans) after a long time. Thank you for coming.” Yunho also stated, “At first, I was worried about what I would do if I couldn’t meet the fans’ expectations since I was facing a different situation but due to the fans’ belief in my challenge, I was able to draw strength and I think I was able to grow a little even though this was my first drama. From the experience I got from appearing in the drama, I will try to live with a positive attitude.”

Furthermore, when Uknow Yunho was asked about Japan’s activities in the World Cup, he stated, “Japan is doing well. It looks like they will get good results. Keisuke Honda’s free kick is amazing.”

Meanwhile, MBC drama ‘HTTG’ DVD that Uknow Yunho starred in has reached #1 on Oricon’s weekly DVD chart.

According to Oricon on the 28th, ‘HTTG’ drama DVD (box) 1 and 2 starring DBSK’s Uknow Yunho each ranked #1 and 2 on the weekly rankings.

It’s been 3 years and 3 months after March 26, 2007 drama ‘Legend’ starring Bae Yong Joon that a Korean drama has reached #1 on Oricon’s weekly chart.

‘HTTG’ recorded somewhat lower ratings in Korea but it has received a great response in Japan due to Uknow Yunho.

It is attritubed to DBSK member Uknow Yunho being recognized as a top idol star even in Japan and it is reflected in the fans’ huge interest and popularity.

Uknow Yunho’s acting debut in ‘HTTG’ is a drama about a player from a second rate K League and a female agent’s dreams and love.

18th of June, Rainy

After school, in order to pass time, my friend and I hopped on a train of Yamanote Line for 1 and a half round before arrived in Daiba. On my way, I saw many fans in Junsu's T-shirt. Actually I wanted to wear Jejung's shirt initially= =. The Japanese fans were really adorable, some of them in Kimono, and some even in their cosplay costume. Were they trying to attract Junsu's attention? When I waited outside to get in the venue, I accidentally dropped my ticket on the floor, although is was raining and the floor was wet, but since the floor was very clean, I was not worried. Therefore I squatted down slowly to pick it up. At this moment, I heard two ladies beside me said, 'ah, that's bad, what to do~~~'. When they saw my ticket without any defect, they relieved and said, 'That's wonderful'. They were really enthusiastic. ^^

Finally, I managed to enter at 7 o'clock after waiting for a long time. I was very lucky this time, no.100, it was really close to the stage~. This event was held in Zepp Tokyo, if I am not mistaken, this is the same venue where five of them had their solo last time. Hence I was thinking, if only I could turn back time, if only the event I attended now was that, how good will that be.... TT_TT
This venue only consists of single floor and without any seat. On that day, the venue was filled with 2400 fans who were standing. There were few Korean fans, one or two fans from Hong Kong, and fans from China either only my friend and I, or they preferred to keep a low profile like us.

After the opening footstage, MC came out. According to him, they received 70 thousand applications for this event. So I was stunned, how can I be so lucky?... = =
This was the first time I was so concentrating in Junsu's singing... even though I saw him many times either in airport or concert, but my attention always distracted by Jejung. In the midst of fans screaming, Junsu went on stage. His first song was main theme from Yuchun's drama. Junsu conveyed all his emotions through this song. When he was hitting the high notes, I could see buldging blood vessels on his neck... Junsu's vocal really touched everyone's heart. All of us were captivated by his singing, listened attentively and quietly.

Junsu was singing his song while going on stage. When he opened his eyes and looked at the audience, his facial experssion turn weird. My friend told me that Junsu was going to cry^^^ In fact she was wrong, I really thought that he wanted to laugh. As expected, during the chat session after this song, Junsu repeated for several times that the fans were too near to the stage. Since he didn't perform like this for a long time, he was very nervous and shy. For this he was struggled, and didn't even dare to look at the fans, always showed his sideway to fans. Due to this, the MC had to repeat for many times, 'Junsu don't look at me, you have to look at everyone.' But Junsu still very shy.

After that was 'MESSAGE from him' session, they showed VCR from Yuchun. I heard that Jejung's VCR was showed in the morning session.
In the VCR, Yuchun said, 'It is 4 o'clock in the morning, and I am still filming.' 'To Junsu who is more handsome than any other time previously, Gambatte! The stage without me, can you complete it? I am worried~', 'It is so troublesome that I still need to record this, but since I like Junsu, because I like Junsu so it doesn't matter if I have to do anything for him.' He said this in cute way. Junsu who didn't expect the VCR from Yuchun, was suprised and very happy.

Later on, Junsu sang 'Kanashimi no Yukue' affectionately, since it is a sad ballad, he sang with sobbing tone.

After this song, was Q & A session with Junsu. In this session, 2 words which shouted by fans the most and attracted Junsu's attention the most were 'Yuchun' and 'butt'.
Junsu even complained, why we (the fans) only shouted for Yuchun, but not Jejung, he felt pity towards Jejung.

Some of the questions were:

'What does Junsu always dreams about?'
The fans shouted 'Yuchun'. Junsu answered he always dreams about traveling or playing.
What a pitiful child~~.

'If you are going to an uninhabited island, what will you bring if can only bring 1 thing?'
The fans still shouted Yuchun, Junsu answered he will bring along the girl he likes.

‘Which is the most adorable part in Micky?'
Junsu's anwer was 'double eyelids.'

'Which part of your body are you most satisfied with?'
The fans all shouted 'butt'. Due to this, the MC still doubted that why we were saying this. Junsu's answer was 'eyes'.

'Which part of your body you want to have a makeover?'
This time nobody shouted 'butt', but Junsu answered he wanted to made his butt smaller... saying that he always notices it when he was watching video of his own performances or DVD. = =

'When is your first love?'
Junsu's answer was his classmate during 2nd year of junior high. He confessed to her, but didn't receive any reply.
It was quite funny when Junsu answered this question. On the screen appeared the question '初恋は何歳?'. Maybe because the question was short, so the MC didn't repeat it and only waited for Junsu's answer. However, Junsu only stared blankly at the screen for a long time, and it turned out that he couldn't recognize the words... = =

'What kind of animal would you be if you can reincarnate?'

'Where do you want to go on your first date?'
Amusement Park, ride on Ferris wheel with her.

'What kind of facility you will definitely play when you are in amusement park?'
Haunted House.
Junsu said Yuchun was extremely terrified of this. When five of them went to US last time, they went to Haunted House in the amusement park. At that time Junsu was walking in front, followed by Jejung, and Yuchun was the last. From entrance till the exit, can hear Yuchun's screaming all the way. = =

'Where do you want to go during vacation?' (I can't remember this question clearly, sorry)
Bora-bora Island

After this session, Junsu performed his last song 'Intoxication'. Previously when I watched MV or live of this song, my eyes only fixed on Junsu who overflows with sexiness. But this time under my friend's reminder, I paid attention to the backup dancers. Oh my Gosh! I won't know if I didn't pay attention to it. I was shocked! Their facial expressions, movements, I don't know how to describe it except using the word 'obscene'. It caused me psychological trauma for a long time. = =

The event came to an end after this song. After Junsu went down stage, the fans still lingered around and shouted for encore even though nobody appeared on stage. They only left reluctantly when the staff repeated several times by using megaphone that the event already finished and asked everyone to go home.

That's all I can remember. Thank you everyone~

May 2010, Asia’s top group, Dong Bang Shin Ki whose member, Xiah JunSu has started his activities as a solo singer. Through his charismatic and sexy self, he has expressed a new attractiveness. Asia’s number one singer, Xiah JunSu’s special series!

From the JunSu of Dong Bang Shin Ki to the solo singer Xiah JunSu.

Real name: Kim JunSu
Birthdate: 1st January 1987
Height: 178cm
Weight: 60kg
Bloodtype: B

Debuted as Dong Bang Shin Ki’s member on 26th December 2003, their popularity covers not only Japan and Korea, but also the whole of Asia. Less than two years after their debut, on April 2005, they debuted in Japan with ‘Stay With Me Tonight’, and officially started their activities in Japan as a JPop group.

Though their songs became hit songs as soon as they were released, in Japan, they spent some time for people to get to know the name of ‘TOHOSHINKI’. The result of their continuous hardwork took place in June 2007 when they had their concert at Budokan Hall for the first time. ‘Purple Line’ that was released in January 2008 ranked number one on the Oricon chart for the first time. At the end of 2008, they attended NHK ‘Kohaku Uta Gassen’. While in July 2009, they stood on the stages of a sold-out Tokyo Dome for the first time, a feat that no other Korean artists have ever achieved before. However just when their popularity was at its peak, April 2010, they announced an indefinite suspension of their activities which was caused a huge impact on all their fans in Japan and Korea.

Actor, Solo, Unit. A more matured JunSu.

This year, JunSu took part in a Korean musical ‘Mozart!’ for the first time, where he tried out the role of a musical actor. Fans from Japan and China had flown in to Korea to watch his performances. His first musical has also received great success, and he was awarded the ‘Best Male Beginner’ award at the 4th Musical Awards that took place in June. He thanked his fans during the ceremony and also expressed his joy of receiving the award.

At the same time, he has also become more active as a singer. Not only did he release a Japanese version named ‘Xiahtic’, on 26th May, he also released his first single ‘Intoxication’ as a solo singer. On top of that, a drama’s theme song was also included in the single. From these we can see that the attention everyone has on him is really high.

With the single marking a beginning, JunSu has officially started his solo activities. At the same time, together with JaeJoong and YooChun, they have also started their activities as a three-person unit, where they were named as JYJ. In June, the 3 of them held their ‘Thanksgiving Live in Dome’ concert at both Osaka Kyocera Dome and Tokyo Dome. Though every single one in Tohoshinki has the ability of being a lead vocal, JunSu is the most outstanding one among them. And his dance and performance appraisals are the highest too. Believe he is going to exert all of his abilities to full potential during his solo activities promotion. Also, his twin brother has just debuted, which is something to take note of.

Bright, Cheerful, JunSu – The king card of yoyogi performance.

Imagination of Music – The strength of Fashion. The potential of leading Fashion – The strength of Music. Combine them both and exert the maximum charisma…

‘Girls Award’ that was held on the 22nd May is an event that was based on the idea above. This is also the official comeback performance for Erika Sawajiri, who at the same time announced the release of her new song. However the main focus of the night that caused fans to flock to the event, was none other than Xiah JunSu. Because the order of the performances was not disclosed beforehand, JunSu’s fans had waited up to 5 and a half hours. Just at the moment where the fans were not able to wait any longer, the big screen flashed the words ‘Asia’s No.1 Singer’, JunSu has appeared. The whole event hall was then covered by red lightsticks instantly and exploded with screams.

The first song was ‘Intoxication’. Dressed in black and performing together with his dancers to give an energetic stage. The sounds of his solo stage exposed an overwhelming existence.

During the MC section, he stated, “Really happy to be able to attend Girls Award”, and he continued to introduce his solo single that will be released on the 26th May. During the talk, he cupped his hand on his ear and asked the audience, “Is everyone high?”

The matured JunSu is back.

JunSu, with the catchy lyrics and rhythm of his song, has incited everyone to explode with vitality. Yes, that’s the introduction to his composed piece ‘Xiahtic’. Just the introduction alone made everyone highly excited. From the starting to the end, the screaming from the fans has never stopped. During the sexy dance with the female dancer, it has sparked a wave of adult-like feelings. At the bridge of the song, JunSu led his dancers and walked passed the centre walkway and disclosed a dazzling dance move at the centre stage. Towards the end of the song, he removed his jacket, lightly licked his lips with a really sexy expression. The last scene was the kiss with the female dancer? Even so, his dance had not ended.

What we clearly see is not only the Tohoshinki’s JunSu, but a solo single, Xiah JunSu. Lastly he waved at the audience with both arms and bowed. Bringing with him a grown-up look that we have not seen before, growing up at twice the speed and returning back on stage.

On Sunday, I already wrote a little bit about story of 3 people concert, Jejung, Yuchun, and Junsu in Tokyo.

The concert was very impressive, but of course as always, Junsu’s singing and dancing was the best.

There, I also met the stylist who was responsible for the special edition feature which is now in the middle of sale, and the stylist said that Junsu purchased the whole attires he wore at page 90. The attires consist of tweed jacket and a pair of matching tuxedo pants, he already said during the photographing session that they’re his favorite, but seemed that he’s truly loving them.

Junsu, he really has eyes on fashion, somehow, I think it’s a nice story to share.

“If I can’t sing then I can’t live, to me, being able to stand on stage to sing is something very precious to me. I want to continue singing till the day I die. I felt really uneasy when we decided on the Dome concert, but in these four days since Osaka Dome, it felt like a dream just being able to stand on the stage each time and I am really happy.”

I want to work harder in the activities from here on, and I also wish to have a mutual understanding with everyone. To everyone who has been waiting, I am really thankful that we were able to hold a concert here last year. I was really worried if I could stand on the stage at Tokyo Dome again, but we are here because of everyone. We are very grateful and we will continue to work hard for future activities.

“From our first performance at Osaka until our finale today, due to everyone who has been supporting us, all our insecurities have vanished. To everyone who attended our performance , from the bottom of our hearts, we are really thankful. Compared to all the frustrations and sadness, everyone probably want to see our sincere smiles even more. On the first day on stage at the Osaka performance, we thought that there were just the three of us so we let go of all our feelings, but after seeing everyone cry, we felt very sad, so we cannot cry here. Only on stage can we smile, sing and dance to our hearts’ content, and everyone who is with us would definitely feel blessed. Is it not more meaningful to have a performance whereby we can look at each other and smile together? From today onwards we will want to continue singing with the initial intention that we held in our hearts when we first debuted, so everyone please continue to give us your support.”

Welcome Back
On 12 & 13 June, JunSu, JeJung and YuChun held performances at Tokyo Dome. In order to express their thoughts and feelings to the 50,000 plus fans who had been watching over them, they sang 《いつだって君に》 and a few new songs passionately and with all the feelings they held within them for so long. There was not much emphasis on the stage equipment, instead, the spotlight was on the soul-filled, passionate singing, along with the three’s individual personalities, overwhelming sense of presence and powerful abilities. On the other hand, during the MC segment, every fan was tickled by YuChun’s innocent smile when he was teased about his kissing scene in his drama, and touched at the same time by that comfortable familiarity. At the end, the three of them sang a new song w while facing each other, converging the feelings that they felt then. Gradually, weeping noises came from amongst the audience, and the one who said that they did not want to cry on stage and that “to be able to stand on stage at the Dome is like a dream” (YuChun), could not help but choked on his words. Regarding the CD with their new songs, it has not been confirmed yet, but we will definitely be looking out for their activities from now onwards.

“Everyone must have a lot to say to us. We are very well aware of it. There are times when we cannot cry even though we really want to, so while we are standing here on stage, we wish to let it all out, to our hearts’ content, including what we have held back in previously.” That was what was expressed by the trio before the performance at Osaka.

“Then again, when we see everyone gathered in front of us, full of smiles on your faces, it might not be the right time to cry, and because we are blessed by your smiles, we would like to personally face everything with a smile too.” JeJung expressed to everyone towards the end of the performance.

JeJung and YuChun have appeared as actors before everyone through Mizuki’s sunao ni narenakute and BeeTV’s television drama respectively, while JunSu has also released his first solo track intoxication. After having focused on their own solo activities for a period of time, the gathering of the trio caused a great excitement at the event.

Furthermore, mostly at the Tokyo Dome’s event, numerous big-scaled and rarely seen stage equipments were added, including the tilting runways and clear big screens at all corners of the stage. No matter where one was seated at in the huge auditorium, one could always see the trio clearly and up-close. However, there was a trace of surprise on their faces as the platform started going up while they sung いつだって君に at the opening. During the MC segment, one could also see that they were quite nervous. As this performance was only carried out through four sessions at two venues, Tokyo and Osaka, fans from all over the world vied for tickets for the performances. But through detailed accounts, we still hoped to let everyone, especially for the fans who were not able to make it for the event live, experience for themselves how spectacular the event were.

Frankly speaking, though, what was more precious than the event was what JeJung was trying to convey through the words that he had spoken earlier. In the opening of the MC segment, JunSu said, “If I am unable to sing again, then it would be no different from dying, so from here on I still want to continue to sing, for as long as I can, with all my might.” YuChun also said after that, “Having seen how everyone have encouraged us with your love, the only thing I can do is to work even harder, and I also hope that there will be even more a mutual understanding between (everyone and) us, and we are very grateful for how everyone has waited for us.” After this, JeJung honestly expressed his feelings by saying, “We are really thankful that so many people have attended this performance.

From everyone’s perspective, even though we are unable to be by everyone’s side realistically, we are really grateful for this, just being able to have you sing together with us, smile with us and cry with us. We are also motivated by this, and we will work even harder from now onwards to reciprocate everyone’s love. Please continue to support us in the future.” Probably (and I really mean probably) what the trio never thought of, was that the lyrics of the last song long way and the encore song w really described what everyone felt,

“Even though we are separated now/But because there is still a future to move towards/We do not want to lie to ourselves. Facing the future a step at a time/Forging towards the road ahead. Even though I cannot be with you now/But I will never ever forget you/I will always guard the place where you are/Just for that moment when we will be able to meet again. All the effort that I am putting in now/It is all because I want to meet you again.”

Such lyrics can be comprehended simply as lyrics of a love song, or lyrics that has a deeper meaning, but no matter what, what the trio can do now is to work hard and move forward, to prepare well for the activities from here on, to look ahead, to strive on. Is it not good the way it is now? To do what we can to help the three of them, and the future, whether if it is to the three of them, or to everyone who is continually giving them support, is it not filled with dreams and hopes?

Through the three hours while keeping this in mind, the trio also announced during the performance that they have decided to participate in a-nation this summer, and that the new tracks that they have performed will also be released soon. The trio also shared on stage later, in order to meet all the fans in Japan, they will work harder from now onwards to hold more live events. A full detailed message will be released in the magazine from here on.
