JYJ has been quite busy promoting and preparing for both their global tour and for the release of their debut album, ‘The Beginning’. Yet despite their crammed schedule, they’ve taken the time to contribute to various heart-warming charities.

It was reported that the trio donated 30 million won ($27,000 USD) from their ‘JYJ Showcase in Seoul‘ ticket sales to the ‘Child Welfare Campaign‘, run by World Vision.

Additionally, while the tour made a stop in Malaysia , the trio requested that $10,000 USD from their entrance fees be donated to Malaysia World Vision, in order to aid the local underprivileged children there.

During an interview with the World Vision newsletter team, JYJ stated, “We’ve always had a lot of interest in donating to children’s charities, and when we heard about the ‘Child Welfare Campaign’, we were very saddened. We immediately thought of ways to help out, and we decided to donate the money from ticket fees as a meaning of giving to charity, together with our fans. We want to do our best and participate in more ways to save children in the future.”

JYJ will continue to demonstrate their conscientious sides, as they are scheduled to perform for the ‘Dong-A Charity Concert’ in Shanghai on October 23rd. Entrance fees from this concert will be donated to the Red Cross.

Actress Park Min Young and DBSK’s Park Yoochun have recently been swimming in countless rumors about the two being in a real life relationship.

The two actors are starring as the main cast for the KBS drama ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal‘, and many viewers are speculating whether the two are actually dating because of the perfect harmonization in their acting for the drama.

However, it has been confirmed that these relationship rumors are simply groundless and untrue.

Park Min Young’s entertainment company recently confirmed, “They are most definitely not in a relationship.”

They continued, “When people go into acting, it’s natural for them to have interest in one another. However, they are not a couple, and they do not have feelings for each other.”

Park Yoochun’s agency also emphasized, “It’s pure nonsense. They have never dated and are not dating. Park Yoochun was shocked when he heard the news.”

--How does it feel to participate in the video "Haru", to promote Korea's tourism?

I portray an action star who loses my girlfriend's ring after the action scenes, so I continuously search for an identical ring. In the end, it's a happy ending where I find the ring and manage to meet my girlfriend. While filming on Gwang An Bridge in Busan, I had to run to and fro many times and even had to avoid the bombs from the plane. There were many demanding action scenes. I thought that since I'm doing it, I might as well do the best I can.

--From Yunho's point of view, is this a very cool job?

Although it's embarrassing to say so myself, I think it's really cool.

Following this, we slowly discovered Yunho's daily habits.

--Firstly, what's your favourite food in Korean cuisine?

Samgyetang.(t/n: Ginseng chicken soup) It's really good for the body.

--How do you spend your holidays?

My days are usually really busy since I keep thinking that I'll be able to spend my holidays leisurely. If possible, I'd like to go on a trip. I'm really interested in photography, so I like to take pictures. I'd like to tour a few interesting places, leisurely take some photos and after that, organize all my feelings at those moments into a diary; that seems nice.

--If you date a Japanese girl, what would be your itinerary?

If it's in Seoul, then it has to be the Seoul Tower. From the viewing gallery, you can see all the sights of Seoul, so the Seoul that you see from there, is really beautiful. Also, there's a lot of good food in the vicinity.

Also, do you know the special lovers' place in Seoul Tower? The couple writes their wishes on a lock and hang it on a fence at Seoul Tower, and pray for it to come true...

--Then, have you ever been on that kind of date?

Yes~ I've been there with my friends and family! (laugh)

--Where you've gone to have fun recently?

If it's recently... I went to a place called Jeju-do. The ebb and flow of the waves there follow the appearance and disappearance of the paths, so that's pretty interesting.

--The place Yunho often appears at in Seoul?

Because I really like movies, if I have time, I go to the cinema often. Ah! If the Japanese fans go to the cinemas in Seoul, they might meet me.

--The cinema you frequent?

I won't tell you the exact location~

--It seems like there will be an increase of fans around cinemas in Seoul. Then, please give a hint for your favourite restaurant.

I frequent this barbeque place at Apgujeong-dong because there's seating at the roof so you can people watch and eat at the same time. The insides of the shop is plastered with my posters, so it's easy to find. (laugh)

--Where do you shop?

There are more malls at Apgujeong-dong so I shop there more frequently. Also, Seoul has Dongdaemun, where you can shop for 24 hours, so if you go there, there are many interesting shops.

--Have you ever shopped in Dongdaemun?

I go there really rarely. If I have time and I can, I would go.

--Lastly, please tell us something that's trendy.

(in Japanese) Travelling!

"Micky Yoochun; rather than being a singer, it seems he is more suited to be an actor." The KBS youth drama [SungKyunKwan Scandal] has aired half of its episodes so far and this is Chief Producer Kwak Ki Won's take on Micky Yoochun, who plays the role of Lee Seonjoon.

[SungKyunKwan Scandal]'s Chief Producer Kwak Ki Won said, "For every beginner, in the beginning, they will always be struggling to digest their lines, yet Micky Yoochun has been on the right track since episode 5. This means that he has already made a big leap in his acting career and for Micky Yoochun who is in this current state, he must have a lot of desire for acting."

Chief Producer Kwak also expressed, "To be honest, the first time I met Park Yoochun, based on his expressions and behaviour, I already felt that he would be suited for acting. Although most of the idol singers turned actors in recent dramas have been more or less disappointing, from the beginning, I did not worry in the least when it came to Micky Yoochun."

He praised him highly and said, "In episode 15, during the SungKyunKwan student council, Park Yoochun appeared as a witness to the gay scandal and he used the Confucian teaching of "仁义礼智"* to portray a sharp scene. The lines are already a lot, and if not acted well, it could easily become a scene like preaching, yet he was able to concentrate all his efforts and fully digest his role, filling the scene with rich emotion."

"The change from the stubborn man full of principles in the beginning, to the current shy man of principles, seems to be easy for him." CP Kwak also added that "he has the voice for both period dramas and modern dramas".

Micky Yoochun is currently doing well acting as the son of the Left Prime Minister in [SungKyunKwan Scandal], portraying Lee Seonjoon, who judges others by his principles and yet, is ruled by a sincere heart. With his low voice and gentle expressions, he is the core weapon in the "SungKyunKwan Quartet".

In episode 16, which aired on the 19th, after coming to know that his roommate in SungKyunKwan is a girl, Lee Seonjoon and Yeonhee have their first kissing scene, foretelling the unfolding of a new chapter of their romantic love story.

*仁义礼智: This belongs to the 5 tenets of Confucius "仁义礼智信", which are the core of the Confucian philosophy. In order, from left to right, they stand for:
benevolence / charity
justice / rectitude
politeness / tact
wisdom / knowledge
fidelity / trust

Yet at this point only one person’s twitter Park Yoochun followed who is his cordi staff to whom he said, “Oh reum ssi (the cordi name) you’re doing this.” as he greeted his cordi.

Han Hyo Joo, who has recently wrapped up the drama "Dong Yi", caught a serious bout of flu, and looking a little thinner than usual, arrived at the cofeeshop for the interview.

(t/n: only related information was translated)

The day before Han Hyo Joo accepted this interview, on the 19th, she participated in a KBS2 programme and displayed her talent in music. In reality, Han Hyo Joo has a lot of interest with regards to music. Of course, her interest in music has also sparked off a lot of curiosity and she also freely shared about her world of music, saying, "I prefer independent bands like '10CM' and 'Broccoli neomajeo', I also like pop/contemporary music and Youngwoong Jaejoong's music."

It has been a week since the end of MBC's Monday-Tuesday drama "Dong Yi" and Han Hyo Joo, who is currently trying to regain her peaceful and quiet life, sent her regards to her colleagues who have worked hard for the drama. Speaking of her drama experience, she said, "It passed by so quickly, in a blur." At the same time, she also candidly admitted that the support she received from Lee Seung Gi* and Youngwoong Jaejoong** was a big help.

Hyo Joo said that compared to Seung Gi's style of wishing her all the best, which is more typical, she prefers Youngwoong Jaejoong's style, which is more humourous and witty.

Hyo Joo laughed and said, "Jaejoong-oppa's*** encouragement is always interesting, even if it is just one line. When I say I'm tired, he would yell 'You can do it girl!'**** and encourage me that way. But sometimes when I call him, he's always not in Korea; in another country instead."

*Lee Seung Gi was her co-star in the Korean drama "Brilliant Legacy"
**Jaejoong & Hyo Joo acted as co-stars in the Japan-Korean Telecinema Project "Postman to Heaven"
***Oppa = a term used by a younger female to address an older male
****The term for "girl" is usually used by someone older, to someone younger, and is usually a sign of affection/shows some form of closeness.

As former members of the South Korean boy band TVXQ, the trio of Kim JaeJoong, Park YuChun and Kim JunSu are no strangers to pop stardom. Formed in 2003, TVXQ became hitmakers at home and in K-pop-crazy Japan (where it was known as Tohoshinki) and elsewhere in Southeast Asia. Following a contractual dispute with its former management company, the threesome formed a new group earlier this year that it christened JYJ after the first initials of their first names. The band's debut album, aptly titled "The Beginning," is out now.

JYJ is thinking big with its debut album, "The Beginning," which features collaborations with Kanye West and songwriter/producer Rodney Jerkins. Show Shop Entertainment released the album Oct. 14 through Warner Music Korea. In the United States, Warner Music is releasing the album digitally through iTunes and Amazon with a CD release planned for late 2010 or early 2011.


"The Beginning" comprises seven tracks and three remixes. Each of the members of JYJ has songwriting credits on the album. Show Shop Entertainment and C-JeS Entertainemnt handles JYJ's publishing, with administration by Warner/Chappell Music Korea.


JYJ had a wish list of producers and artists it wanted to work with, according to Park: West, Jerkins, Neo and Timbaland. With the help of its manager, Baek Chang Ju, CEO of C-JeS Entertainment, and Show Shop Entertainment CEO Hwang Jong Wook, the group was able to connect with West and Jerkins, who agreed to work with JYJ on "The Beginning."

The sessions for the first single, "Ayyy Girl," produced by West, were held at Westlake Recording Studios in Hollywood, while "Empty" and "Be My Girl," produced by Jerkins, were recorded at his 2nd Floor Studios, also in Hollywood. The rest of the tracks were recorded in South Korea.

West wowed JYJ with some a cappella freestyle rapping before the trio began recording its vocals. "We could see why he's so hugely popular," Park says. "It was really a great honor to work with him."

Jerkins also made a big impression on the Korean trio. "When we were making songs together, he treated us like equals," Park says. "We appreciated that so much. Because he worked so hard on the record, he inspired us to work hard."

Jerkins says he was impressed by JYJ's professionalism and "their poise, the way they took their work seriously. I told their team that I'd work with them again."


"The Beginning" arrived Oct. 14 in South Korea, followed by the release of a "luxury edition" with extra content on Oct. 18. The expanded version is limited to a run of fewer than 100,000 units, but Warner Music Korea says it received more than 300,000 pre-sale orders for the set. "The overwhelming response to the [limited-edition] CD is a very encouraging start for JYJ and we hope that this album release will also be met with equal enthusiasm," Warner Music Korea managing director P.R. Wang said in a statement.

Warner Asia's Wong adds: "Warner U.S. will release the product digitally through iTunes first this month. It will also be made available through Amazon digitally. There will also be finished product under the Amazon import section. We are in discussion with Warner U.S. to release a U.S. version in the next few months that will include new tracks and mixes exclusive to the market in both physical and digital formats."


JYJ is playing shows in Bangkok, Thailand; Singapore; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Hong Kong, China; and Taipei, Taiwan; in October. The group "also will be touring four major cities in the U.S. in November to support the release in a series of meet-the-fan sessions, plus a few media appearances," Wong says. "Once the U.S. release [plans for the physical album] has been decided, we hope to reach a much bigger market for JYJ, as the market for Asian acts who sing in English is growing rapidly."

Nice going, Leslie! She got them on Billboard!
Everyone please visit the site and leave a comment to show your support for JYJ :)

Thanks for the heads up, KittyJae!

For Immediate release - Reasons for changes made to US stops and apology.

20th October, 5.31pm, SGT
[Dear Fans,

First of all, we would like to start this mail with an apology to the change in US stops and all prior travel arrangements made to former locations.

We decided to replace two stops on the original schedule as:

1. It is too punishing on the members physically and mentally to do the back to back gigs and specifically for the US leg, we are taking into consideration possible jet lag.

2. The change was made in lieu of tremendous feedback received from Japanese fans who have asked if we could put one stop in Hawaii for them since Japan was not included in this tour.

3. We wanted to make sure that all JYJ fans will be able to get a ticket to the showcases and hence we told promoters that we need a minimum of a 5000 pax venue for each stop. Due to constraints at the former locations, this can only be accomplished with the new tour stops added. (with the exception of NYC which needed to be locked in as press activities for the stop has been confirmed).

We apologize once again for the inconveniences caused and ask for your understanding. It is the best solution we can come up with to meet expectations on every level.

Thank you.

*Official ticketing information on each stop will be released early next week.
On the 20th, viewership rating agency AGB Nielsen Media Research reported the tally of 19th evening broadcast time drama where ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ recorded a rise on audience rating to 14.3% nationwide.

In compare to the 15th episode that was aired on the 18th, this episode audience rating received a rise of 1.2 points, which is more than 1% rise. While to compare to the 14th episode, this would be a whooping 3.4 points rise from 10.9% rating.

The main reason of this continuing rating increase on ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ seems due to the first launch of Lee Seon Jun (Park Yoochun) and Yeon Hee (Park Min Young) love line that is likely to give an even more interesting development to the story.

In the recent ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ broadcast, Lee Seon Jun who had been away from the Sunkyunkwan for a while would finally reunite with Yeon Hee. In a drowning accident where Yeon Hee was saved by Lee Seon Jun, he was finally found out that she was a woman. Due to that, Lee Seon Jun asked Yeon Hee to leave the Sungkyunkwan University.

In addition, this recent broadcast also revealed the first Seon Jun and Yeon Hee locking lips scene that caught the attention of audiences. At the drama online board, a lot of different opinions “This means a triangle love line is formed.” “Yeon Hee and Seon Jun finally had a kiss.” were expressed.

Meanwhile, the concurrent timeline broadcast drama SBS ‘Giant’ recorded 28.5% and MBC ‘Queen of Reversal’ got 8.9%.

I feel better after reading this! ^___^

From Singapore Cassiopeia Forum:
We hope this post can put all rumours to a rest.

Like what we had said earlier, our main concern is our boys. We check, think before we act. We want the truth! Not rumours and lies!

We're glad that finally we had a clearer and full picture of what happened.

Fyi,Tinsel PR is local publicist appointed by CJES. It's like an agent in between Quest and CJES for the showcase arrangements.

Below are the clarification for various rumours / enquiries which we received from Cassiopeia:

1. Cancellation of the VIP photoshoot with JYJ & Camera issues
-> We understand the fustration of the VIP as this was such a last minute notification by PR to Quest. Also, for the camera issue, some of us were already out at the airport / expo when we saw the post about NO photo & video taking during the showcase.
It is really upset that why Tinsel PR had eventually informed Quest at so last minute on the changes since they already knew same had happened at Bangkok. If they had informed earlier to Quest, trust there wouldn't be so much unhappiness and misunderstanding from Cassie.

2. Tickets sale / Free tickets
-> Its truth that local and international fans had told us that they thought Singapore showcase tickets were sold out! We're not sure who had started this rumour, or what had eventually happened. We really got a shocked and surprised to hear those. We know some fans eventually gave up or switched to buy other countries tickets instead.But, by the time we knew it, it was too late for us to inform them that the ticket were still available then.Of course, we know the fustration of the cassie who had bought the tickets earlier and saw free tickets being distributed at the airport. However, after much consideration, we do admit that a full hall looks nicer. At least to the boys and JYJ management. Believe all of us wouldn't want our boys to be upset.

3. Press Conference
-> Yes, Quest had informed media that no mentioning of the 5 boys issue during the interview. Since it was clearly mentioned to the media prior press conference, why did the reporter still ask? At the very last minute,the PR ended up changed to only allow 6 questions to be asked by the emcee on behalf of the reporters. We agreed with Quest that Tinsel PR should not interfere in the midst of the interview and cancelled the interview on Quest & CJES behalf. This had caused the media to be unhappy! This had directly offended the media!

4. Emcee interview during showcase
-> Believe some of you are aware that the scripts in showcase, concert, variety show, etc are all pre-script. No worry about the boys feeling. They're aware of it.

5. Food
-> No worry girls~ Our boys had nice dinner! The cup noodles which some saw were for security guards. The packet food that some other saw were for the dancers. Our boys and their management had nice bento
from Swiss Hotel. They were well fed. No worry~ ^^

6.Junsu throwing/breaking chair
-> NO SUCH THING had happened! None of the staff saw it. We are not sure where did the rumour started from. But, there's no such thing!

7. Playing cards & clubbing issue
-> Yes, the boys did play card. But is with the staffs and dancers at the backstage. NOT with any girl/fan at the club. NO SUCH THING had happened! If they had left the hotel on their own, Quest or their management will know as they're with them all the times!
The boys were feeling so tired! Do you all think they would choose to club than rest?

8. JYJ being unhappy about Singapore trip
-> The boys did not say anything about being unhappy during this Singapore trip. They thank Quest for organizing this show. They are happy to be here! But, it is true that they're really tired!
They wanted and need to have a good rest!

Our thinkings: Its really short notice for this showcase. Only 2 weeks for preparation. Even we ourselves were having big headaches and busy with various red ocean projects. Thinking back, Quest should be experiencing even bigger stress than us to arrange for such a big event. Not mentioning the last minute changes requested by the PR which had caused the cassie to be misunderstand and angry. As compared to the other stops, we do agreed that Singapore stop is more organized and more successful.

We're also happy and proud to hear from overseas cassie that they're amazed by Singapore cassie & showcase. To them, Singapore showcase was a great success.
Yes, that is what we hope to show to our boys, JYJ management and overseas cassie. Isn't it?

Whatever we do is for the boys. What had been done can't be undone. We hope the above cleared you all worries and enquiries. We hope all these can be put to a rest soon.

Since its all cleared now,we hope the complaints about Quest to be stop as they're not the main responsible party. Trust Quest will continue to follow-up on all these unhappiness issues created by the PR with JYJ Management for us.

If you all wanted to know more, or you all still have any more enquiries, feedback, feel free to tell us.

Please remember...Whatever we do is for our boys. We want our boys to be happy. To feel that Singapore cassie is well behaved and nice. Only in this way, they will be back to Singapore again.

Please help to let more singapore cassie know the truth and not believe in the rumours.

JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) first World Wide Concert ‘JYJ Worldwide Concert in Seoul’ held in Seoul Jamsil Olympic Main Stadium will have the whole venue fully covered by roof and is transformed to dome theater.

JYJ first World Wide Concert ‘JYJ Worldwide Concert in Seoul’ organizer representative on the 20th said, “An outdoor concert venue has few destined problems that will appear such as weather and sound. Thus in order to resolve such problems in this concert and in turn deliver the best stage for the fans, the upper side of Jamsil Stadium will be fully covered just like dome.”

By covering Jamsil Olympic Stadium to a dome structure, the lighting effect is going to improve that is able to maximize the effectiveness of screen role, as well as sound quality which often become weak point of outdoor concert.

Furthermore, even though at the day of event the weather turns cold, the roof will be able to block the external temperature and keep all audiences inside the venue warm thus are more comfortable in enjoying the show.

Jamsil Olympic Main Stadium to have a dome infrastructure inside its gigantic size venue will be the first time in South Korea for ‘JYJ Worldwide Concert in Seoul’.

In particular, considering new public law regarding maximum safety, the installation of existing dome structure will not require the use of steel cables, and textile fabric will be applied instead, as the official said.

Currently the organizer has been exploring deeply about the same venues in the world which has the same method of installing dome structure, and the venue will launch its majestic look for the first time in the coming end of November at JYJ concert.

JYJ agent in South Korea, C-JES Entertainment said, “This concert will be the presence of combination of leading production, stage, and harmonious performance that is worth to be much expected. We’re doing our best so that the stage will leave an unforgettable impression on fans which they’ve been looking for in a concert.”

The second advanced ticket sales for another 20,000 tickets is originally planned to be conducted next week, yet due to requests from fans, Interpark will hold the ticket sales on the coming October 22nd instead.

‘JYJ Worldwide Concert in Seoul’ is advancing to be a 100,000 seats scale concert (each performance to have 50,000 audiences) and is coming on November 27 – 28 for two days.

JYJ 12 Hour Whirlwind – Burns $1 Million
The JYJ whirlwind has arrived in Malaysia with a total of 25 people flying over from Singapore. In merely 12 hours, their packed schedule included the showcase, a press conference, and the fan photo-taking event. The trio’s total expense rose over $1 million Ringgits, so not only is their ability to suck in money super strong, their massive expenditure is equally surprising!

Previously in TVXQ, the 3 members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu formed the group JYJ. Their arrival yesterday created a huge JYJ whirlwind, attracting over 4000 participants at the showcase. Around 100 media outlets with different language platforms attended the press conference at night, with electronic and web media coming to interview the trio. After the press conference, there were 400 fans who bought the 800 Ringgit tickets that could earn them a chance to have a private photo-taking session with JYJ.

Originally, JYJ planned to stay in Malaysia for a night, but the day before they came, they finalized another activity that was to be held in Seoul on the 18th, so the trio flew back to Korea on the same night after their showcase on the 17th at 11:30PM. Because of the sudden change of schedule, it made their visit to Malaysia very tight on time. The showcase was delayed an hour because of rehearsals, and the location for the photo-taking session moved hotels, taking place after the press conference than straight after the showcase. But because the trio returned back to the hotel, the media continued to interview the Korean side through the internet, which then dragged for another one and a half hours and was canceled in the end. The photo-taking lasted for only about 10 minutes before hastily ending. JYJ still left for the airport full of their fans’ blessings and support, concluding their 12 hour journey in Malaysia.

The showcase “forbidden topics” – Malaysian fans donate $10K USD to charity

JYJ’s management company being involved in gang-related activities, Japanese activities being obstructed, SM Entertainment filing for the prohibition of sales of JYJ’s new album, and the boycott on JYJ’s Korean activities are all very hot topics, but were all categorized in the “forbidden topics” for the Malaysian press conference. Malaysian media ignored these sensitive topics not related to the promotion by putting the main focus of their questions on JYJ’s new album. The three obviously didn’t want to create even more issues during this sensitive period, so they chose to keep silent in reaction to these problems.

Although the trio have been working hard all day, with their faces showing signs of fatigue, they are unable to forget the passion of the fans after the showcase ended. At the 7:30PM press conference, they were still in a state of excitement. Junsu stated frankly that they hoped plans for a concert in Malaysia would quickly be confirmed so they can come back to see everyone again.

The fans of JYJ considerately donated $10K USD under the name of JYJ to welcome them as a new group. The money will be donated to World Vision’s poverty alleviation programs, which deeply touched JYJ by this act of kindness, who have already donated a sum of money to World Vision themselves.

Although they were unable to take a look at Malaysia’s beautiful scenery, the three hope that they will have another chance to come to Malaysia to enjoy the sunshine, and even to take promotion pictures. Junsu laughingly said that he liked Malaysia’s coconut trees the most, and hopes that he can take some time to come for a vacation with a couple of friends.

As an idol group, JYJ’s every action and their clothing and accessories have all become a fashion guide to their fans. Jaejoong said that off-stage, they don’t have special requirements for their apparel, just as long as it is comfortable and suits them well.

‘The Beginning’ is JYJ’s debut album after their formation. When asked about their individually composed songs and whether or not it portrayed the real experiences of them, Jaejoong said “it wasn’t just my own experiences, but also the feelings of a lot of people.” Junsu admitted “‘I Can Soar’ is my own personal experience.” What was the purpose of naming the album ‘The Beginning’ and what message does it convey? Yoochun said “it means that everyday is a new beginning!”

With their album going international, JYJ had to sing the songs in English. For Junsu and Jaejoong who had troubles with the language, it could be said that this was a big test for them. Did the unknowing two ask for assistance from Yoochun to improve their English fluency? The two laughed and urged the other one to answer. At last, Junsu answered “English really is hard to learn. This isn’t, after all, a language that we are familiar with and use frequently. During the recording process, Yoochun helped us tremendously, and always corrects our pronunciation!”

To test the language-talent of the trio, the host wanted them to learn “aku cinta pada mu” on the spot. They followed the pronunciation bit by bit like students, and Yoochun repeated it again with accurate enunciation, so indeed, Yoochun is the most gifted one out of the three in terms of language.
