This was written by a critic in around '06 but has recently resurfaced and been circulated around Chinese webs.

Originally I had intended to write this at a different time. I still have uncertainties in terms of Jaejoong's pronunciation and breathing.
I want to fully describe and explain the qualities of Jaejoong's voice and singing before discussing the content below.
Ah this boy Kim Jaejoong never gives me time, he's always putting me in a rush. I can't sit still until I write about how great he is.

(omitted)

I've noticed lots of people discussing the different versions of 'Insa' and 'Footsteps' (Bal geol eum) circulating around the internet, but I've not paid much attention to it because I wanted to listen to a more refined version of it before coming to any conclusions. (Also it's because I strongly dislike listening to audio tracks of bad quality) I waited patiently for the official release.

The reason I tell Jaejoong fans that they should be proud of Kim Jaejoong is because most singers have a shake foundation in terms of their technique and yet Jaejoong's singing is simply impeccable. His singing is effortless and it is almost regretful that most people are unable to truly grasp how wonderful and amazing he is as a performer. (Unfortunately, this cannot be helped because most people do not understand what it means to be a good singer and it is not a concept that can be realized without first hand experience)
If you think it through carefully, you'll see that Jaejoong has a natural gift, where others may struggle in singing the same song, he is able to accomplish it without much difficulty.
So who is it that has the true talent? Is it really those who sing so loud that they cough up blood?
Up until now, I do not have a proper explanation for this, yet Jaejoong's existence has compelled me to look into this matter.

If a simple and mellow song is not sung properly, it may be considered weak.
Songs that require such a great deal of emotion require the performer to lose themselves into the music and this is much harder than one might think.
The emotion behind Whitney Houston's R&B music is clear and highly conspicuous.
If you look at Yoonsang (Korean singer, composer and producer), his charisma draws the audience's attention to the song itself. In order to feel the full power of the song, one must listen from beginning to end.
Jaejoong is an artist who understands pitch, rhythm and harmony. If Jaejoong were an artist, he'd first consider the problem of framing is finished piece because a good painter knows that the frame can also impact the outcome of the final piece.

Jaejoong completely understands the song.
He is able to seamlessly combine his own voice with the music, and by the end of it, instead of wondering which verse it was that he performed the best or admiring his flawless delivery, we are left reminiscing about the past; why did we break up with so and so? How are they doing? Has that person forgotten about me? Those were the best days of my life' etc. His voice reaches the very bottom of our hearts, awakening memories and emotions that we've long buried away. The kind of feeling is not that of wildness; it has a comforting effect, liberating us from any torment we may have been enduring.

I'm extremely touched by this song, not because Jaejoong did a good job sing it,
but because listening to the song makes me forget that he's the person who sung it.
Listening to this song helps me heal and relieves the pain that has been tormenting me. In a split second, I can feel tears welling up in my eyes but I don't want them to fall.

Allowing the listener to really immerse themselves in his voice, putting them on a roller-coaster ride of emotions. Somebody without a high sense of understanding and vulnerability could not possibly achieve that. It's like when the audience sheds tears from seeing the actors laugh.
The above are the initial thoughts that came into mind when I heard the song. Jaejoong, young as he is, found a way to elevate the song to such a level, creating a perfect masterpiece. He has the skill of a true artist, using not only previous knowledge and skill, but also adjusting his own mindset and changing his delivery according to the song.

SM artists tend to be good dancers and singers, yet more often than not, they change their style and singing technique according to the public's taste and interest. It is undeniable that Jaejoong is full of potential, I used to worry that he wouldn't be able to break free of his constraints, but it seems as though this is unnecessary since, as we all know, he is now free.

Jaejoong has a very good understanding of how this song must be performed. It's style as a whole is drastically different from what he is used to, yet he managed to pull it off effortlessly in the blink of an eye, so quickly that I almost didn't have time to express my feelings of awe and amazement.

Being able to understand and really feel music does not only mean knowing how to perform a song, one must also be familiar with the characteristics of the piece.
It is not a matter of flaunting one's singing ability, it is about helping the people who are watching the movie to immerse themselves in the scene and be moved by it. That is what music is.
Jaejoong achieved this by letting go of the mindset of normal singers and learning that it is not about drawing attention to the singer's ability. He was true to the nature of the OST.

This song demands the singer to not only sing the song, but to also direct and conduct it. They must decide for themselves how far they wish to carry the character and this cannot be achieved without thorough knowledge and understanding.

One must learn the qualities of the OST and use their voices as though it were an instrument, this is a difficult concept to understand for those who have not experienced it for themselves. Nowadays, the ability of an artist is judged based on the high notes they are able to reach and how well their voices project, how many people are truly able to grasp such feelings and emotions?
How many singers are there out there who have this kind of talent? Jaejoong's talent has truly rendered me speechless, how unfortunate would I have been if he hadn't been the one to sing 'Insa'?

1 / 4
Question 9

Q: When you pick a girl …
A calm (cool) one or a bright (cute) one?

A: Half-half “If I have to be honest … I want a girl who is calm but also cute! Greedy much?” as Changmin said, all staffs burst into laughter including the manager. “But if I really have to choose, then I think calmness is more important. Ideally I prefer her to have calmness side of 51%, and for a balance the brightness side of 49%” showing a detailed personal preference.


2 / 4
Question 10

Q: During an appointment …
The one who waits or the one who makes people waiting

A: The one who waits “Either work and personal appointments, basically I prefer to arrive earlier than the appointed time,” said the nice Changmin. As a note, for Elle Japon shooting, Changmin also popped out at the shooting scene 15 minutes before appointed schedule, surprising everyone on set.

3 / 4
Question 11

Q: When driving a car …
The careful type or full-speed type?

A: Neither “I occasionally drive carefully, but I’m never late to speed up when it’s needed.” such an honorable student answer. During days off or when he wants to refresh his mind, he’ll just go driving at once and he also drives alone in daily basis.

4 / 4
Question 12

Q: If appearing in World Cup soccer tournament
Forward or Defense

A: Defense “Forward’s pressure is a little bit too much. Defense doesn’t have such significant amount of responsibility (in term of scoring a goal), everyone’s attention is more to forward, thus piles them with lots of pressure” since Changmin is a natural sports lovers, he could sense the feeling of players on game. “Therefore, no matter how much getting hot I am supporting, I never blame the players nor jeer at them.”

SM Entertainment recently held a press conference for the SMTOWN LIVE ‘10 World Tour, and said it will be held in major cities, including Los Angeles, Tokyo, Shanghai, and other places around Asia. The agency also confirmed that the concert will last around 6 hours, and will feature a total of about 80 songs!

Some happy news for the ardent members of Cassieopeia!

With the friction between SM Entertainment and DBSK’s Hero Jaejoong, Xiah Junsu, and Micky Yoochun, the members have not been very active in general for a while. However, it has recently been released that DBSK’s U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin plan to stand on stage together to perform a duet on the 21st of August at SMTOWN LIVE ‘10!

A representative from SM Entertainment commented that “SMTOWN LIVE-exclusive performances were prepared for the tour, such as U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin’s duet, BoA and SHINee’s Key - a duet teaming up for the first time, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun and SNSD’s Seohyun’s duet, and a sister duo with SNSD’s Jessica and f(x)’s Krystal, just to name a few of the special performances that will take place.”

With so many new duets and promising performances prepared, I think it’s a safe bet that the tour will be one to remember.

SOOO HYPE for this concert~!

It has continuously been pointed out that Hallyu stars who are actively performing overseas rarely arrange performances and events for Korean fans.

Hallyu stars reportedly consistently neglect Korean fans and usually do not have much contact with fans in Korea; on the other hand, they have adopted friendly images to the public overseas by holding large-scale fan meetings and releasing photo and music albums.

Hallyu star Kwon Sang Woo, who evoked criticism with a hit-and-run last month, has raised controversy because he delivered a message of apology on his official Japanese fan website before his Korean website. After the news on his hit-and-run was spread, he just made a brief apology in Korea on the following day, which was June 25, simply by using the press release that his agency had distributed, but he still had not personally expressed an apology officially in Korea for three weeks after the accident. On the contrary, his agency had urgently left apology messages on the board of his official website in Japan on the very next day, which was on June 25. There was another posting made by the agency on June 29 to apologize for the accident on the Japanese website.


When the fact that he already apologized personally in Japan became known in Korea, Kwon Sang Woo posted his own written apology on his Internet fan café in Korea on July 21. A spokesperson for his agency explained, “It is the result of a misunderstanding. We just made the press release to the Japanese agency, which was distributed on June 25, so the Japanese agency just posted the notice along with the apology on the website.”

But criticisms were continuously raised on the Internet, such as, “He regards Japanese fans as the ‘source of money,’ and regards Korean fans as the ‘sitting duck,’” and, “Why is he concerned about Japanese fans when he caused the hit-and-run in Korea?”

As Hallyu stars actively perform overseas, they can elevate the status of Korea, which is a positive result. Stars’ activities have actually contributed in large portion to attracting Japanese tourists to Korea. The Korea Tourism Organization produced an advertising commercial with star actor Lee Byung Hun last March. But, as he has concentrated on overseas activities, he is also not free from the criticism that he lacks consideration for Korean fans.

Hallyu stars also have many Korean fans, but their fan meetings held in Korea are usually really events for foreign fans because the fan meetings themselves are mostly held as the part of tour packages, so in actuality Korean fans cannot participate in those events. Actor Lee Byung Hun invited around 1,500 fans from Japan and countries in Southeast Asia and held large-scale fan meeting on Jeju Island from July 9 until July 11. Korean fans were not the target audience, so they naturally felt disappointed about it. In addition, Korean fans rarely have the opportunity to see stars except in dramas, movies, or TV commercials, but stars hold fan meetings in Japan and Southeast countries very often.

Last December, actors Lee Hyung Hun, Song Seung Hun, Won Bin, and Jang Dong Gun held a large fan meeting together in the Tokyo Dome in Japan. It is very difficult to see those four actors together in Korea, but they willingly flew to Tokyo to meet Japanese fans, and their fan meetings were held twice and ended with a flourish to the enthusiastic cheers of around 70,000 fans.

Star singers also tend to focus on overseas activities rather then performances in Korea. The truly pan-Asian star singer Boa performs in Japan for longer periods than Korea. Dong Bang Shin Ki also devoted themselves in activities in Japan after they advanced into the Japanese music industry. Korean fans often buy star singers’ special albums and special photo exhibitions, which they have released overseas, from agencies who buy them from foreign countries and sell in Korea. In addition, fans basically support stars’ overseas activities, but it is easy to find fans’ comments on the stars’ fan café sites expressing their disappointment. As stars advance overseas and become more focused on overseas activities, Koreans fans, who have actually made them stars in the first place, feel more neglect.

A person in the entertainment business said, “Overseas activities usually are so-called money-making opportunities, more so than here in Korea. More than that, to keep their popularity overseas, they have to have more chances to see their fans in foreign countries, so they cannot help focusing on overseas activities.”

TVXQ member Xiah Junsu made a surprise visit to the location where 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' is currently being filmed to support his fellow member Micky Yoochun.

In the early morning of the 1st, Xiah Junsu visited the site of the drama in Hwasung, Gyeonggido with 100 boxes of fried chicken. Xiah Junsu was able to successfully show support for Micky Yoochun, and the tired actors and staff.

Kang Sung Pil, who plays Lim Byung Choon in the drama, said, "Micky Yoochun was really surprised at Xiah Junsu's unexpected visit. He talked and laughed with Xiah Junsu and tried to look cool but you could tell that he was deeply touched," and "You could feel Xiah Junsu's sincere support for Micky Yoochun and his new challenge, so even the people around them felt better."

He also said, "When I asked him (Xiah Junsu) if he could make a cameo appearance on the drama, he brightly said that he really wanted to if given the chance," and "Xiah Junsu stayed on location for a very long time and gave Micky Yoochun strength."

TVXQ member U-know Yunho (Jung Yunho) has attracted a lot of attention as the cover model for the August issue of “Men’s Uno” magazine (Hong Kong version).

The picture of Jung Yunho is a far cry from his strong image in TVXQ and he exuded the charm of a gentle, matured man.

Aside from the magazine, during the interview, also said candidly, “I don’t think I’m a man with a lot of charms” and he also expressed that “Instead of just words, a man who uses his actions to prove himself, as well as to protect the things he holds dear; that kind of man is very charming.”

Also, this magazine used the phrase “I am a member of TVXQ” to introduce Jung Yunho. U-know Yunho is currently preparing for a musical. He will be playing the role of the Crown Prince in the musical “Goong” and his first stage will be on 8 September.

This is what a non-Cassie wrote to me after watching Bolero live. I was honestly touched to know that there are people out there who understand the way we Cassiopeia feel.

Here is what she wrote on her note:

It's undeniable...
When it comes to TVXQ, it's never just about their looks
Perhaps one could say that compared to their love for music, the way they express themselves and their passion, their appearance is completely insignificant.
When I'm listening to them and watching them, I don't feel the same kind of wildness and superficiality induced by other idols. This is admiration, genuine admiration.
They strive for perfection and sing with their sincerity. Listening to them is not only a form of pleasure, it has also shown me their respect; respect for music and for their audience.

Connection, trust and love; all of these things interdependent.

Whilst they may not be old, they have a level of maturity unheard of in other artists their age. Their determination has helped them overcome countless obstacles and reached unattainable heights.
I don't know how to express this, but watching the five of them on stage, their devotion, their concentration and their understanding of music… it's incredibly moving.
Compared to the mainland (China), where those who truly love music and value life never reach the top and those who are dependent on their looks, rumours and lies do.
As Asia's best group, TVXQ have shown nothing but progress and development. As I was watching their performance, the only thought in my head was 'TVXQ forever'.
They impact they had on me… I don't ever want to lose that feeling.

I am studying in a high school in Japan, almost half of my class are Cassiopeias. Speaking of this, I must give credit to my class teacher...

My teacher is a 45 years old, beautiful temperament lady, who is responsible in teaching us chinese language. She is a humorous and nice lady. She became Cassiopeia 1 year ago and is currently intoxicated by TVXQ.

First, let me introduce the glorious history of my teacher.

She set the 7th period class of every Tuesday and Thursday as "TVXQ's DVD appreciation lesson". Every time, she will pull down a large screen, and plays various DVDs of TVXQ which she brought from home. There were concerts, "History in Japan" series and so on. Sometimes she will sing and dance along while watching DVD of their concerts. However, her ability in dancing and singing is a bit...... so my class usually burst into laughter because it was too funny. Once because we laughed so hard, we were scolded by school director....

Got once she finished her teaching earlier, and we got nothing to do. We were silent for a while, then she suddenly said, "Since we still got a lot of time, how 'bout we talk about TVXQ?" And all of us agreed. Then we started our "General knowledge of TVXQ" lesson. My teacher is indeed a super fans, from TVXQ's each member's name, height, blood group, experiences, she can remember all of them clearly. She knows almost everything I knew. She told us that she originally thought only TVXQ's fans would listen to her when she brought up this topic. She did not expect everyone would listen to her seriously, and she was very happy.
Therefore, starting from that day, we have our own "General knowledge of TVXQ" every time we finished our lesson earlier.................

(omitted)

My class is going to take part in music festival in September. When the class monitor asked our teacher which songs should we choose, without hesitation she said, "Of course is TVXQ's song, does anyone have objections to that?" The whole class unanimously answered, "Nope!" After hearing our answers, my teacher said joyfully,"I knew you guys will answer that, you guys are the most adorable kids! Ah! You guys really understand me well!"
Finally, we decided to sing "Why Did I Fall In Love With You?" and the other song in chorus, while singing she praised "The harmony parts of TVXQ are really beautiful, we have to work hard like them too!"

Last month, my teacher went to JYJ Tokyo Dome concert and dragged her son along with her. When she came back, the first thing she told us was, "Ah! I am going to die! I was killed by Jejung!" This led to the exchanging glances from whole class. My class monitor said, "Teacher, you are not a little girl anymore, why are you so excited?"
After she finished this sentence, my teacher said, "When you mentioned about little girl, I remembered one thing. During the concert, Yuchun will invite a girl on stage when singing 'my girlfriend' right? So I was thinking, since he already selected 16, 17 years old girls in the first three concerts, will he select a middle-aged woman? So I asked my son, what to do if I was selected. However my son without any hesitation, answered me that it was impossible to happen. My heart immediately broke into pieces........." (omitted 10 000 words of sad description from my teacher)

There is a beautiful landscape at the back of our classroom, which is ------ giant posters and calendars of TVXQ. Well, of course, that's my teacher's masterpiece. She said that she is more energetic in teaching us when looking at TVXQ.

These are the glorious history of my class teacher. To be honest, I have never heard of such lovely teacher.

Now we are practicing 'Why Did I Fall In Love With You?' and purple line. The dance steps of purple line are really difficult.
I am going to a-nation on 28th of August with my classmates. Thinking of being able to see Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun, I am overwhelmed with happiness......

Lastly, I want to shout the phrase that I always shout with my classmates and teacher: TVXQ FIGHTING!

JYJ a-nation Fighting! Ho-Min SMTOWN LIVE Fighthing! I am going to attend both of them!

Yunho, Big Bang, Park Shi Hoo, Han Chae Young and Lee Da Hae have been chosen as the main cast for the promotional video by the Korea Tourism Organization, which will be aired worldwide, to show Korea as an attractive tourist destination.

Stars like Bae Yong Joon and Lee Young Ae, who have been the leading icons of the Hallyu wave up until now, will retire from the Korean PR battle and the next generation of Hallyu stars will enter.

TVXQ’s Yunho and Big Bang have been rising in Japan’s Oricon Charts and they are singers who make their income in Japanese yen. Kim Bum, from last year’s drama, [Boys Over Flowers], and Park Shi Hoo, from the drama [Prosecutor Princess] released in March-April this year, have also started to catch the eyes of the housewife fans*. Female stars Han Chae Young and Lee Da Hae are following in the footsteps of Song Hye Gyo, Kim Hee Seon and Chae Rim to become the new “Chinese Market Killers”.

Initially, the proposal for this publicity video included Park Yong-Ha, but the plans have been changed due to his sudden death. “World Star” Bi, has also risen as a representative of Korea, but with the next generation of Hallyu stars, this plan will change.

For the promotional materials this time, it will feature the primary tourist locations as part of the story line, in the form of an omnibus. Each star will complete the filming of the mini-drama by the end of August and it is set to screen in major countries worldwide.

*t/n: Actual term used was “obasan fans”.

Yoochun, member of TVXQ, which is currently on a hiatus, will be participating in the drama [SungKyunKwan Scandal] (KBS2) which is set to air from 30 August. On the 24th, amidst the heavy rain, Yoochun met with 800 Japanese fans at Yeongam County, the filming location for the drama.

After viewing the Tokab-sa temple where the filming takes place, the Japanese fans moved to the Kim Dae-Jung auditorium located in Chung Cheong Nam-do. They met with Yoochun there and spent an enjoyable time together.

On that day, despite the heavy rains and bad weather, the fans stayed until the end of the shoot. After the shoot ended, Yoochun met with the fans for a short Q&A session, and talked about episodes that occurred during the filming for the drama.

Yoochun said, "I'm really grateful to the fans who came all the way from Japan to the filming location in Korea to show their support. I'm facing a lot of expectations for [SungKyunKwan Scandal], which will start airing soon."

Today is a day that no Cassiopeia would ever forget. It's been a year, and it's gone by in a blink of an eye, hasn't it?

We've waited an entire year, and in truth, it is undeniable that this period has really shown to us all how much we genuinely love our boys.

Throughout this time, we've had our doubts, our worries and even conflicts amongst ourselves, but all that is behind us now, we've made the decision to stay, and to keep waiting. Cassiopeia is a force to be reckoned with, seeing our enthusiasm, it's almost as though nothing ever happened. Every now and then, we may speak of our boys, about how much we miss them, but it's only because we want to see the five of them together again. We motivate one another, we encourage those around us to stay positive, and we vow to wait together; I'm proud of what we've achieved, of this entire fandom.

Many of us have shed tears, and yet we continue down this path because we believe. The boys have our unconditional and wholehearted faith and patience.

Some say they are charmed by our boys' looks, some by our boys' music, and some by our boys' love and emotion. Me? I'm a fan of these fans.

Others may not ever be able to comprehend this kind of unconditional love that we fans have to offer, yet we sacrifice it anyway, to a point where we could almost be deemed reckless and foolish. Even if we may never see those that we love, we love them anyway, regardless of other people's words, perception and lack of understanding.

It is magical, the way the emotions of others are able to affect our own.

Some say that to be a fan of an idol group is to inflict pain upon oneself. Groups inevitably separate, leaving fans with no choice but to focus their support on one particular member. On the other hand, we are Cassiopeia, and each and every one of us knows that we will continue to support DBSK as a whole regardless of the outcome of this difficult situation, wouldn't you agree?

And after writing all this nonsense, my one hope is that all of you will continue to wait, to support and to protect our boys.

Those of you that have twitter, please tweet #imissdbsk, thanks!

SM Entertainment revealed that, “CEO Kang of We# Plus filed a defamation of character and impediment of performance lawsuit against SM CEO Kim Young Min which was denied on May 31st,” and “We have found out that We# Plus has sued TVXQ fans so we decided to file this lawsuit to stop any more damages from occurring.”

T/N: Please know that those ‘fans’ who were sued are people who spread false rumors about We# Plus (in order to defame the three members) and were sued for that. Afterwards, they apologized for their actions through their blogs.

In June, they held the concert “JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN THANKSGIVING LIVE IN DOME” at the two major Domes, and started breaking away from Tohoshinki. Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun have started their activities as a trio. At Tokyo Dome on 13 June, when they held their final concert, many reports spoke about how the trio cried while showing their love and thanks to the fans, showing their unwavering popularity.

Before embarking on the new stage, Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun went on their own journeys in search of themselves. Their honest words from their hard, and what they feel about the new stage, a real side of themselves are shown in the DVD “3hree Voices”, which was just released.

Junsu released his solo single “XIAH,” which did favorably, went to Australia for the first time. He thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sea, admired the vast nature and was excited all the time, a total opposite from his normal calm self. “This is a time when I can look back on everything that happened since debut,” he said, talking about his current feelings.


After the recently ended drama “Sunao Ni Narenakute (Hard to say I love you)”(Fuji TV) and showing his acting skills in Japanese, Jejung headed to Canada. He enjoyed dog sledding, and drinking with the staff. Jejung, who has been working hard from Tohoshinki to the current solo activities, showed a fresh side as he went around.

And for Yuchun, he went back to his home country, Korea. He was born in Seoul, but grew up in America and went through a hard time. Returning to Korea alone to debut with Tohoshinki, and went through a turbulent route. He now revisits Korea “because this is the country I was born in,” he expresses. You can see his love and feelings for his home country, as well as determination for the new stage.

The three spent time in various places reflecting. Yuchun is shooting a drama in Korea, and other solo activities have started. As they show their honest appearance and words, we want to discover the passion they have been hiding in their heart.

Stars debuting for a stage (T/N: in term of drama/musical stage) performance is currently receiving many attention. However the hot issue is not only the challenge those stars face for drama and musical stage itself, but also the huge ticket power of these stars to invite audiences to the theatre that has been recognized ever since.

TVXQ members U-Know Yunho and Xiah Junsu, for instance, have showed off an outstanding ticket power and gave proof of the popularity of themselves.

In December last year, Xiah Junsu took part in his first musical ‘Mozart’. At the 3rd round ‘Mozart’ ticket sales, all 4 stages consisting 12,000 seats where Junsu starring in were all sold out in only 3 hours. Meanwhile during the first and second ticket sales, fans flocked the reservation site that caused the site’s server to crash.

Xiah Junsu’s popularity seems to be repeated by U-Know Yunho. It’s still two months ahead before U-Know Yunho makes his appearance in musical ‘Goong’ on September 8th to 19th. However on last July 9th all tickets were already sold out in 2 minutes.

Moreover, fans who couldn’t get the tickets from Japan, China, Taiwan, and other Asia countries keep sending inquiries to the musical production company. ‘Goong’ production company thanked U-Know Yunho for the popularity of the musical stage and currently in process of discussion to add even more stages for him to perform.

Micky Yoochun’s manager has been caught in an assault case.

He was reported for physical violence because he pushed a student with his hand while trying to control the girl’s actions in a restaurant.

A family member of the female student, who was present at that time, stated, “With nothing but curiosity, we were looking at Micky Yoochun, who was sitting at a different table, and saying ‘He’s handsome,’ when his manager said, ‘What are you staring at?’ to us. So my sister said, ‘The manager is so f***ing rude.’ He followed us out and pushed my sister’s shoulder as he said, ‘Why do you have to be so f***ing rude when you speak?’ and ‘Get lost.’”

The family member also continued to say, “My sister got mad so she went back inside and said, ‘Why did you hit me? Is it a crime to say that he’s handsome?’ while crying,” and “Afterwards, the manager followed us outside, swore profusely at my sister and slapped her.”

But Mr. Park, Micky Yoochun’s manager, feels he has been put in an unfair situation. “I was dining with Micky Yoochun when the girls came in. They didn’t order any food and just kept staring at us. But their stares felt uncomfortable; they didn’t feel like stares from fans and were more like glares. So I told them that we were in the middle of a meal and if they weren’t going to order anything, then they should leave,” and “I told them that they could get a signature after we were done eating if they wanted, but they kept staring at us uncomfortably. So I told them, ‘Don’t stare. What are you looking at?’”

He continued to say, “It’s true that the girls’ attitudes were annoying me, so I asked them, “What are you staring at?” But what surprised me was the severity of the reaction I received,” and “I had to listen to a student, ten years younger than me, swear at me using words that no one would ever think of using.” He also added, “Male students with yellow (blonde) hair said to me, ‘You, come here (Without using the respectful tone),’ and they lied and said that I slapped her.”

But when asked why he didn’t apologize for pushing the girl’s shoulder, Micky Yoochun’s manager said, “I had to listen to the student’s family swear at me with… vulgar language and with threats of ripping apart my body such as ‘I’ll rip your arms and legs off and kill you.’ While I was being sworn at, the student in question was being interrogated so I wasn’t given the opportunity to apologize to her. Afterwards, I bumped into her sister but since I had received such foul treatment from her family, there wasn’t much that I wanted to say to her. Because I had figured that anything I said wouldn’t change a thing, I said, ‘So what.’ But when the student’s father came, I sincerely apologized to him numerous times.” He also said, “I do sports so I’m big in size and look intimidating. And if I had hit her, then her body should have shaken from impact in the footage.”

Micky Yoochun’s manager has been booked without detention for assaulting a female high school student.

Team 3 of the Western Hwasung Police Station stated that, “During the interrogation, Mr. Park (The manager) admitted to pushing the student’s shoulder,” and “Swearing at someone or pushing someone is considered assault, so he was booked without detention.”

According to the police, the manager admitted to his actions against the student. The police stated, “It doesn’t matter whether or not Mr. Park slapped the student or not. Mr. Park has already admitted to his crime.” They also added, “There will be an additional investigation with the CCTV footage and statements for the witnesses.”

The case will be handed over to the Prosecution next month. There is a high possibility that Mr. Park will have his indictment suspended or receive a fine. A representative of the investigation team involved stated, “Because this is an assault case, it will end quickly with a suspension of his indictment or a fine,” and “Which of the two punishments he receives will depend on his past criminal records.”

A settlement between Mr. Park and the student would not greatly affect the penalty Mr. Park will receive. The police stated, “A settlement would only change the severity of the penalty,” and “If they were to reach a settlement, Mr. Park would more likely receive a suspension of indictment or a smaller fine.”

Mr. Park has been investigated by the police for assaulting a fan of Micky Yoochun who was taking a picture of the celebrity. Mr. Park stated, “The student was swearing profusely at me, so I lightly pushed her on the shoulder,” and “Her allegations that I slapped her are completely false.”

Mr. Park stated that he will accept the police’s judgment. He stated, “Because the police have stated that even pushing someone’s shoulder is assault, I will take the penalty,” and “I was hoping to reach a settlement but the student keeps saying that she was slapped and won’t back down. So, I have decided that it would be better to just receive the punishment I am given.”
