His choice is...
Changmin's Ultimate Choice Part 2

The magazine's August issue commences with Changmin's "Final Choice" Game! Starting from this week, it will be divided into 4 parts and delivered weekly. Changmin’s daily life and his unknown character will be exposed! Part 3 will be up on 5 August!

Question 5

When buying clothes...

Won't be confused and decide immediately or Will wander about

Answer: Will wander about
"I recently bought a coat but worried for 2 days about whether I should buy or not." With regards to the rate at which he wanders around when shopping, "I practically won't buy any particular style out of impulse," answering it in the way of a super star. This is actually really humble~

Question 6

If you were to be reborn...
Male or Female

Answer: Male
"As expected, I still like the life of a man," Changmin answered us swiftly. When asked about whether he has no interest in a woman's life, "Of course, you can't say that I have no interest at all, but I like me as a man, meeting with woman," explaining himself.

Question 7

When in a relationship...
Will you be the initiator or Do you like being the one who's chased

Answer: Both are fine
Up until now there have been a whirlwind of romances. "Hmmm..." After pondering over it for a while, he finally answered with "both are fine." Realistically, which one is more common? "It really is half and half", answering us this way.

Question 8

The shop that you will choose when going on a date is...
A restaurant with a nice ambiance or Rotisserie

Answer: If the both of us are having fun, a restaurant
"As long as there is an occasion where it's just 2 people, I'll definitely choose a restaurant." A meat-roasting date would be a lot of people having fun. "Also, when we're roasting meat, a lot of people are there, so there would be many types of food to eat!"

There were several high school and primary school students on the trip. Yoochun pointed at his face and said 'tyutyu' (Japanese way of saying 'bobo'). The girl kissed him on his cheek, leaving a smile on Yoochun's face. Yoochun then leaned over and kissed the little girl's forehead. He was so gentle keke~~ jealous! (explodes)

In truth, there were 2 male fans on the trip. When one of the male fans approached, he half-hugged, half shook hands with Yoochun and started back towards his seat. The girl standing behind him finished her 'touch' with Yoochun and ran to catch up with the boy, the two of them then walked back to their seats hand in hand.

Kekeke, so they were a couple.
After seeing them, Yoochun smiled timidly.
Perhaps he was slightly jealous.
Everybody laughed.

I've been to several 'touch' meetings held by the five members, but most of the time there are people surrounding them, and so I get pushed and shoved. This time however, at Yoochun's, there were only 2 people standing by his side, so I was really able to stand there and look at him properly. Of course, I was also able to touch him. Yoochun looked sincerely at each person in line, touched them, and said thank you, he was extremely polite to everyone.

Perhaps it is because Yoochun has such a soothing effect on those around him, it was a perfect touch meeting.

This was the best touch meeting I had ever been to, and I'd really like to thank Yoochun.

I'd also like to thank him for the lunch ^^

That's all that happened at the fanmeeting, thank you for reading.

As I am a true gentleman, no matter what happens, protecting the girl will be my priority

“Under my sister’s influence, I have also read many manga series targeting teenage girls, especially “Boys Over Flowers”! I really like Domyouji Tsukasa’s character and find it really interesting.”
When filming ended, Yunho said it care-freely with a smile. Not as the leader of the group, TVXQ, that Asia is crazy about but as the new lead of a new drama challenge, No Limits, Cha Bong-Goon.

“Although I felt very insecure as a new actor but I was attracted to Bong-Goon who grows up in the story. No matter what happens, he will work hard to progress and treat his family with love. Also, his methods of love is similar to me. However, there are also differences. Bong-Goon is very straight-forward when it comes to love but I am a little conservative. (Laughs) Although when I’m out, I’m leading but when it’s just the two of us, I want to be lead. As compared to expressing my love in a frank way, I would first consider the atmosphere of the surroundings.”

There’s a kissing scene in the drama

“A kissing scene? (Laughs) We NG-ed a lot~ my co-actress, Go Ara, comes from the same management company as me so we already had a good relationship. The moment I close my eyes, I already feel like laughing, it’s really troubling. The director said the kissing scene is getting smoother each time and that it will make one’s heart skip a beat. I feel that when a guy’s jawline can be seen when he stretches out his head is really handsome. I have understood the reason for acting this way as my seniors have always acted like this. (Laughs)”

“Although the filming of the drama has ended but Bong-Goon still stays in my heart.

“Recently, I feel that it’s really hard and frustrating, both physically and mentally. At that time, I would immediately think about what Bong-Goon would do if he was in the same situation as me. This way, I will have the strength to go forward and finish my job happily while carrying a thankful attitude.”

Working with Ninagawa, the theme is ‘Secret love’

“I wonder if I have the correct attitude and then I will show off a sexy side of myself. My own secret love… do I have one? (Laugh) I feel that a secret love is one where even friends don’t know the relationship between us two. This sort of love is a little hard in reality. It is only at the beginning will there be a love that is similar to one in a novel or movie but once you enter this line of work, you’d be more worried about the other person while dating. As I’m a true gentleman, no matter what happens, my priority will still be to protect the girl I love.”

To confirm it’s true love, it might take about 3 years.

“To confirm that a person is really suitable for me, I feel that it might take about this amount of time. I want to make sure I become a man that always treats the family with utmost priority no matter what. I really feel lonely and although I want a girlfriend, there will be no warmth between each other if we don’t really like each other. Dating, to me, will also cause changes in the outer appearance. Wearing formal clothes, drinking wine during a date, you would want to dress up more often right? For example if my girlfriend says that my hairstyle is really good, although I am embarrassed and show no reaction but in reality, my heart would be filled with satisfaction and I would want to maintain that hairstyle. (Laughs) Actually, being praised as good-looking is my favorite!!”

The type of girls that Yunho likes would be a very feminine one.

“Not only will she have to lead me when we are alone but also support me when we are together with friends. Also, I would want to try cooking for her. This relationship is my ideal love.”

The beautiful Changmin wore clothing styles different from before, so taking advantage of the atmosphere left over from the photoshoot, the interview began. With a one-question and one-answer format, Changmin's language is introduced to everybody.

Q. Recent object that you find cute?
A. Toothless, from the movie "How To Train Your Dragon"

Q. If you were to date, would Korean or Japanese be better to use?
A. Of course, I'm more fluent in Korean, so it'll be easier. If I don't speak Japanese for a certain period of time, it will become unfamiliar.

Q. Which article of clothing did you like the best from today's shoot?
A. The Prada sweater. I normally like knitted clothing.

Q. Do you buy things in Tokyo? Which shop do you normally go to?
A. I will buy stuff, but I'm afraid that I won't be able to peacefully go to the store I usually go to so it's a secret.

Q. What's the difference between Korean and Japanese fans?
A. Essentially, I don't think that there's that much of a difference.

Q. This is your first time being a lead character in a drama, what are your thoughts after the filming ended?
A. Because I've always focused on my activities as a group, being the only one in the drama, I have to shoulder all the responsibility myself. Also, this is my first time challenging acting, so I will feel really pressured.

Q. After the filming ended, were there any view changes in terms of relationships and marriage?
A. There wasn't any particular changes.

Q. What are your thoughts regarding the filming site, Jeju Island?
A. I was really surprised with how easily the weather changes, which is completely different than in Seoul.

Q. What artist's song do you have on repeat?

Q. Do you have interest in musicals?
A. Very interested. Although I don't have any particular plans of participating in any right now.

Q. What do you want to say to your Japanese fans now?
A. My Japanese fans, thank you so much for your concern for me during this period. Although it's frustrating how I can't tell everybody the specifics of future plans and the direction of my career, there will be work later on in Japan, so please anticipate it.

Q. Tell everybody how you spent your resting days.
A. The best way to relieve stress is going out for a drive. Going bowling with friends is also pretty good.

Q. Did you cheer for the world cup?
A. Late last night the Korean team was disqualified. I watched all of it at the hotel, so I'm lacking sleep today. I really like supporting sports, so I will often go and watch Baseball matches. But when they lose, I will feel really despondent.

Q. What are your thoughts on attending the Chanel fashion show?
A. This was my first time experiencing sitting in the first row of a fashion show, so it was very surprising. I was really really happy.

Q. What are you particularly interested in right now?
A. Just 3 days ago, I became hooked onto Tennis. In the past, I've always wanted to play Tennis, but I've never actually started learning yet.

Q. The most recent Japanese word you remember?
A. "Humidity". The humidity is really high, because my hair has natural curl, it has all become really curly.

Q. If you were to make an analysis on your personality...
A. The typical B-blood type. If I were to be completely immersed in something, I wouldn't be able to see the people around me at all.

Q. What is your average daily schedule?
A. Because it's really difficult for me to get up early in the morning, I will get up later in the morning and work out. Then I go to acting class and the day ends really quickly.

Q. Do you make your own food or order takeouts?
A. Mostly it's food made my others and I warm them up later on.

Q. What are your plans for this summer holiday?
A. I'm really busy with work this year, so there probably wouldn't be a holiday.

I will show everybody when the time comes. If I were to turn into a real crown prince, how would I handle it?” This creates a lot of curious thoughts about the kiss scene. He also said, “I want to do volunteer activities with my juniors,” showing his caring nature.

As a senior who holds great power in the singing world, U-Know Yunho have guidance to his juniors. He states, “I still miss the stage.

“Idol Rivals” SS501’s Kim Hyunjoong and TVXQ’s Micky Yoochun will be moving their battle of pride from the dance stage to the television drama stage.

SS501’s Kim Hyungjoon will be starring in MBC’s new Weds/Thurs drama, coming back to the acting stage with “Accidental Kiss” (Starting 1 September,) and TVXQ member Micky Yoochun will be transforming into an actor in the KBS2 Mon/Tues drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal” (Starting 30 August) With a change of management companies and their group’s continued future still unknown, both members are re-establishing themselves via acting, and have attracted much attention with their new starts.

So far, Kim Hyunjoong and Micky Yoochun have been rivals on the musical arena. Both SS501 and TVXQ are considered as top idol groups, and have been engaged in friendly competition since their debut. Especially since both groups are made of 5 people, and enjoy widespread popularity not just in Korea but in Asia, they are often compared against each other.

Both men, not as singers but as actors, will be battling it out head on again, and this has resulted in much attention. Especially since “Accidental Kiss” and “SungKyunKwan Scandal” are the first starring roles for both Kim Hyunjoong and Micky Yoochun, representatives of the younger generation, and since both their dramas will be airing at the same time, the battle between the two continues to heat up.

As actors, Kim Hyunjoong has a slight edge over Micky Yoochun. Doing well as “Jihoo Sunbae” in “Boys before Flowers”, he has proven his star power. However, there is always room for improvement. In “Boys before Flowers”, it was noted that he was slightly awkward with pronunciation and expression, and these are the key points he needs to work on. As a 180 degree change in character from that of “Boys before Flowers,” how to express this is probably his main concern. In “Boys before Flowers,” Jihoo Sunbae’s character was “soft,” but in this role, he has to act out the disinterested, cold charm of the character.

While watching the previous Japanese and Taiwanese versions, more than wondering about which character Kim Hyunjoong should be expressing, there high expectations on whether this drama can be a hit or not, so Kim Hyunjoong’s burden is heavy. Similarly, “SungKyunKwan Scandal’s” Micky Yoochun is facing a lot of pressure. Micky Yoochun’s abilities are already recognized in the music industry, but is still a rookie in the acting arena. The actor Micky Yoochun, is showing a totally different side from his strong, soft image in TVXQ. In “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” Micky Yoochun plays the role of Lee Seon Joon, who does not lack in brains, money or looks, the perfect man.

Fans of the original novel either say that the casting of Micky Yoochun for the role, is the “best casting” or that he “totally does not match the role.” And there have been many discussions with opinions divided. Because of this, the first acting challenge for Micky Yoochun and how he expresses this character has become a great concern. Rivals and colleagues in the music industry, and now battling it out for victory as actors, we anticipate the drama showdown between Kim Hyunjoong and Micky Yoochun.

[TRANS] 100728 Micky Yoochun's Manager Assaults Female Student

"Pushed her shoulder" vs "Slapped her face" What is the Truth?

Both sides refuse to back down in the 'assault dispute' case surrounding the manager of singer and actor Micky Yoochun.

On the information sharing site 'Nate Pann', a netizen wrote on the 26th that Micky Yoochun's manager assaulted her younger sister and swore profusely at the siblings.

The netizen stated that she and her sister met Micky Yoochun by chance at a restaurant and explained that they got in a dispute with his manager, who was acting very hostile. According to the netizen, the manager swore at her younger sister, pushed her shoulder and slapped her on the face. She also stated that Micky Yoochun was watching the scene take place while laughing.

The netizen stressed that, "The CCTV footage of this happening has been attained and at least ten people, including my sister's friend, were there as witnesses." She also added, "My sister has been traumatized by this outright assault and we have no thought of coming to a settlement."

As the controversy increased for the issue, the netizen wrote another post holding her current thoughts as she said, "I know that I wrote the account from a subjective point of view because it happened to my sister," and "I wasn't trying to depreciate a celebrity, I was just trying to make it known what happened to my underage sister. I don't believe it's right to reveal the CCTV footage in the current circumstances."

The Southern Hwasung Police Station, who is in charge of this case, as stated, "We have not yet been able to check the CCTV footage to see if assault really took place."

When fans of Micky Yoochun saw this post, they questioned the credibility of the account as it was posted on 'Nate Pann', a site where there is no need to certify one's name and identity, and set out to find the truth behind the assault case. As assault by a manager can affect the image of Micky Yoochun, the fans took an active approach as they demanded the revealing of the CCTV footage and called the restaurant in question to figure out what had happened.

In this process, the situation became more clear as it was revealed that, "The girl sat in front of Micky Yoochun and stared at him intensely. The manager did not feel comfortable with the situation and stepped in. He asked her to move many times, which must have hurt the girl's feelings, because she swore as she stood up; this became the catalyst to the dispute."

Many posts rebutting the original post, with titles such as 'The explanation from the restaurant manager' and 'Post written by a fansite master after talking with Yoochun's manager', have spread very quickly.

The original poster has currently deleted all her posts in the site saying, "This case isn't something that should be fought over in here and made a fuss about, it's a problem that should be settled by the police.

On the other hand, Micky Yoochun's manager stated that he pushed the girl's shoulder but he never slapped her.

[TRANS] 100728 Yoochun's Manager Caught In Assault Case... Police "Done With The Investigation"

TVXQ's Micky Yoochun has been caught in an assault case.

A netizen stated in an online forum on the 26th that her sister was assaulted by Micky Yoochun's manager.

This netizen stated that she was eating in a restaurant while looking at Micky Yoochun, when his manager swore at and slapped her sister.

She also added that the CCTV footage has been attained and she has no thought of coming to a settlement.

A representative of Micky Yoochun spoke in a telephone conversation with asiae and explained that, "Micky Yoochun and his manager were having their meal when the girls kept staring at them and taking Micky Yoochun's picture. So his manager said, 'If you keep staring at us, how can we eat in peace?' but the girls didn't stop their actions."

He followed by saying, "As the manager kept telling them to stop, the girl in question suddenly stood up and began to swear at the manager. He got mad, because he was being sworn at by a high school student much younger than him, and lightly pushed her on the shoulder as he said 'Don't use such vulgar language." And now she's saying that he slapped her." He also added that, "From checking the footage, it has been revealed that there was no slapping involved in the incident."

The Hwasung Police officials stated that, "We have called in the people in question and finished our investigation with them," and "We are currently gathering information to figure out the exact details of the situation."

[TRANS] 100728 Yoochun's Manager "I Pushed Her Shoulder But I Didn't Slap Her"


The manager stated, "All that the CCTV footage showed was the pushing of the shoulder but there was no slapping that took place," and "A short 10 or 15 minute investigation has already taken place at the police station."

A witness of the case stated, "It looked like the student who claims to have been assaulted kept bothering Micky Yoochun by asking him, "Are you really Micky Yoochun?" over and over again," and "When the manager pushed her, she swore and ran away. There was no assault in the restaurant."


The police station stated, "The investigation for the case has been completed," and "The outline of the case will be revealed tomorrow (28th)."
