Fans’ anticipation is getting higher after it was informed that the rearranged DBSK with 2 members are having a comeback. It’s good news for the fans who have been thirsting for Uknow Yunho’s and Choikang Changmin’s comeback.

Through DBSK’s official homepage, SM Entertainment (herein SM) made an official announcement on the 23rd that “In 2011, DBSK will be returning to your side.”

After the 3 members’ immediate withdrawal from the team, Uknow Yunho and Choikang Changmin have refrained from activities for a long period of over a year. However, it was revealed that the decision for a comeback was made thanks to the support and love of the fans.

Kim Jae Joong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu are currently in the middle of activities as JYJ and SM has had no responses from them as to the proposed activities as DBSK.

Accordingly, fans’ attention is focused on how great of a stride Uknow Yunho and Choikang Changmin will make.
First, Choikang Changmin will make a splendid debut as an actor in the January 2011 SBS’s ‘Paradise Meadows’. ‘Paradise Meadows’ which will air after ‘It’s okay, daddy’s daughter’ has already received lots of attention before the broadcast due to the open filming at Jejudo’s background. Of course, the part that is anticipated is the sweet and lovely acting with Lee Hyun Hee.

Uknow Yunho, dreaming of a new leap forward, has joined a large-scale production. Uknow Yunho, Kim Kang Woo, Eric, and Kim Ok Bin, etc. have been cast in the Coast Guard drama ‘Poseidon’. Starring in last year’s MBC TV’s ‘Heading to the Ground’, he will return to the small screen after 2 years. If he gives as much to his role as being able to boast that he has been cast to be part of a splendid work/drama, it is anticipated that Uknow Yunho’s activities will expand befitting the reputation of DBSK.

In particular, it is even more remarkable that Uknow Yunho’s and Choikang Changmin’s activities are receiving huge interest from the general public excluding the fixed fans.

After hearing the news of the rearranged DBSK with 2 members, many netizens are sending hot support saying, “Uknow Yunho and Choikang Changmin will do well. Please have even more activities than the times of trouble (you’ve had).” “I’m confident that you will show a great side because your talents are recognized.”

The public’s interest will be even greater when DBSK’s comeback coincides with their dramas. It is anticipated that the rearranged DBSK with 2 members comeback will be a major opportunity to reverse the current music industry concentrated by teen stars.

Today in our show, let us look at the interview with JYJ. The host said later we will see something that he showed to JYJ during the interview. The something was the ticket of the Tokyo Dome concert in June that JYJ held. He kept the ticket till now and he shown them while he was interviewing them and told them that he went to see the concert and he remember Jaejoong teared at the end and he saw it. When he told them these, he said the members were surprised that he followed them. Host said he believed they left a deep impression on everyone when they were here in Taiwan. He said he had the biggest reward because he had the chance to talk to them at backstage because of work. Hence before they left Taiwan, they took his ticket and autograph for him. He is thankful to them and later when they were taking a photograph together, he felt that they treated him as a friend because during phototaking, he had no idea what to pose as he was shy standing together with the three of them, hence he made a thumbs up pose and suddenly Jaejoong held his thumb and did a thumbs up sign too, then Junsu and Yoochun followed along and did the same gesture(hence they took a picture like this at 01:54) He said he shared this picture on his Weibo(something like Chinese version of twitter) before. Then he wished them good luck as they are entering the international market and hope they can visit Taiwan and see everyone soon again.
Start of interview at 2:10

Host: Please introduce and greet your fans using some Chinese that you all know.
Caption on Yoochun at 02:39 – Trying to escape
JS: Hello everyone, I am Kim Jun Su. Are you busy with work?
JJ: Hello everyone, I am Kim Jae Joong. Do you want to jump? You, You all, We, Them, Thank you.
YC: Hello everyone, I am Yoochun. *Tries to pass mic over*

Host: Yoochun at least know 3 words right, a kind of food.
YC: Xiao Long Bao

Host: Still Xiao Long Bao *laughs*

Host: Visit time in Taiwan is very short, but before they leave Taiwan, are there any feelings they want to share?
JJ: We have not visited Taiwan for about 5 years, have not been here for long but there are still many fans waiting for us, supporting us, felt very blissful yesterday.

Host: How about Junsu? How do you feel?
JS: Firstly, we miss Taiwan and yesterday was together with many fans, seeing them on stage and also being able to sing on stage, really felt blissful.

Host: How about Yoochun?
YC: Actually what they mentioned is what I want to say, we came and held a showcase, although time was short, I hope if possible we can hold a concert and can be together with everyone for a longer time, feel that we should do that. It’s a pity we didn’t get to eat Xiao Long Bao(LOL)

Host: If you all have chance to come again, tell me personally, I will bring you all out.
JS: Then must remember to leave your contact.
JJ: We all think that in Asia, Taiwan has the most beauties.
Caption: Sweet Tongue
Host: Yes, that’s right, that’s right.
JJ: You dont seem to think so *laughs*

Host: There is a lot in Taiwan
YC: Most of the people think so.

Host: Yes, that’s not wrong. If we have chance next time in private, I will introduce you all some Taiwan friends. Yes, people like Guo Cai Jie, Jolin Cai(both are singers) etc
To me, it is a very special feeling to be able to work with them yesterday on stage.
JS: Me too, me too(LOL)

Host: Thank you, thank you.
In June this year, I specially went to Tokyo to see their concert. *shows them the ticket*
JS: Ah, Tokyo Dome.

Host: For the show, to bring back news to the fans as their first concert in Tokyo Dome with the 3 of them.
All: Thank you.

Host: I queued for a long time to buy their Tshirts.
All: Thank you.
YC: Whose did you want to buy?(LOL)
Host: I bought all 3.
All: Thank you.

Host: When the concert was ending, because they were very touched, they teared and he saw many fans crying along with them. From that time till now that I see you all again with this new album, being able to set records, do you all have any thoughts? The first to tear that time was Jae Joong.
JJ: In the Korea showcase, I have mentioned in front of the media too that that period was really a long time that they had not stood on stage, hence really felt blissful when they were able to. Also, didnt a lot of things happened last year, because of those things that they cant say anything, the fortunate feeling to stand on stage and also sadness, hence tears drop together.

Host: This time, they collaborated with many international musicians, so we hear a big difference in this album, in the beginning when they had to sing this type of songs, do they feel that there’s difference in the ways they are familar in singing?
JS: If there is a difference, the foremost is that we’re not singing in Korean, but had to sing in English, so we were not used to it and spent a lot of effort on it. This is also one of the it, the recording was done in US which to us is something we are not used to including working with foreign staffs, but everything, everyone, every staff was really friendly to us, they are nice people, therefore we were able to release our album in Asia and made us work hard in promoting.

Host: As they are so busy with work, I believe their stress levels are huge and I know that for Junsu, he has 4 cats, should be to relief stress.
JS: This is one of the reason, plus home is a little big, a little, a little, just a little big(LOL), hence there is feelings of emptiness, so I had cats to accompany me, it can reduce the feelings of loneliness. When sleeping, they will play beside you and mood will become good that time and also they were cute.

Host: Ok, Yoochun, anything to mention?
YC: Dog.

Host: Has dog. Usually the time you all spent away from home is long, will you all miss your pets?
Translator: Yoochun said its still alright(LOL)
JS: They can live well themselves.

Host: Jae Joong showed his scar that his cat scratched him.
JJ: By his claws. Yesterday at the showcase, didnt I said I have to let the cat exercise, hence I put him on the running mill right? I said I did this with good intentions for the cat but yesterday I went on twitter and everyone said it was my fault.(LOL)

Host: Today, let us hear their future plans, because till now, all the fans were very supportive, so what are the plans in future?
JJ: For the moment, to complete the showcase held for this worldwide album is the most important thing. Also, the decided second concert in Korea, preparing for JYJ concert.
Host: We look forward to the concert and also happy to be able to meet them in Taiwan today, hope to see them often in Taiwan meeting the fans. There’s many beautiful girls to introduce to them. Ok thank you JYJ for coming on our show.
All: Thank you.

Hi there, I'm a member of staff from Grazia.

It is now late autumn, and cold, chilly season. How are you all?

In a week's time (on December 1st), we will be releasing the January 2011 issue of Grazia featuring Tohoshinki's Changmin!

Following the August issue, which featured Yunho, we will be releasing a New Year's edition with Changmin!

The theme - Sexy! All 8 pages of it!

This photo was taken on the set of the photoshoot. The ones last time were a little blurry but this was taken with a proper digital camera.

When I met Yunho last time, I was entranced by his gentleman's charm and deeply touched by the way he was so considerate of others. It seems as though Changmin has it even worse!

Putting aside the figure of a top notch editorial model, the heart warming smile and the strong sex appeal, Changmin's unique personality is perhaps his greatest asset.

Having just landed in Japan, he had a hard time adjusting to speaking Japanese and he apologized profusely to the team, trying as best as he could to convey his thoughts and considerations. As we conversed, Changmin gave me his undivided attention, giving honest, straightforward answers whilst also showing his good sense of humour.

Despite his tight schedule, he was willing to remain on set for a little longer, slipping smoothly from one pose to another so we could get as many shots as possible and present the best of Changmin to our readers.

The article will include stories revolving Changmin's career, his personal life, his plans for the future, and of course, his love life!

Whether you are a Changmin fan or a Tohoshinki fan, or simply a casual reader of Grazia, please look forward to our feature on Changmin!

Yours Truly,
Grazia Editorial Team

Finally SM Entertainment has to release TVXQ comeback with only 2 members namely U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin.

It’s been a year since SM Entertainment released the “return” ultimatum to the three members Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and Youngwoong Jaejoong in last November.

At that time, SM Entertainment released a statement to reporters through a public press conference, “We will start the activities of TVXQ in spring 2010, we’re welcoming them to comeback before then.” After the previous announcement, SM who had been waiting for a year, has to formulated the comeback of TVXQ to consist only 2 members eventually.

The two members will return to music industry with a new album in spring 2011, activities schedule that ranges from Japan, Korea, and all over Asia is expected to unfold. Since TVXQ was highly popular, whether the TVXQ that only consists of 2 members is able to keep the big name of their own group starting to become a hot issue recently.

SM on the 23rd at the official website, “As been implied by the preliminary injunction rule, TVXQ activities should be held under SM. We had proposed to the three members to have activities as TVXQ, unfortunately we keep hearing nothing from them. Therefore in consideration to the long future of the group, we have to make this following decision.” explaining the background of the two members’ comeback.

SM Kim Young Min on November 2nd last year stated the company’s ultimatum in the press conference through an official representative. “The recent condition implies that eventhough the three members are able to determine their individual activities, they’re still only able to work as TVXQ under our company. We have scheduled TVXQ comeback activities in Korea in next spring. Hence to prepare for it the three members have to respond to this proposal by the coming 10 days which is on November 12th.”

U-Know Yunho, Choikang Changmin also revealed their feeling through a written document today, “We will continue to keep the promise with SM. Before the other three members started their cosmetic business, we shared the same dream to be able to comeback together as well. Yet in order to have a comeback in next year’s spring we’re required to prepare for at least 6 months. So if we still want to work as TVXQ, we need to make a decision soon before it’s too late.”

The remaining three members, in the other hand, had formed a new group called JYJ and already started to mark their start by launching their first album ‘The Beginning’. ‘The Beginning’ stands for ‘a brand new start’ and is released in both South Korea and United States through Warner Music. It seems that JYJ has committed for a prolonged activities.
