Korean boy band JYJ [Prain Inc.]

Korean boy band JYJ, composed of former TVXQ members Jaejung, Yuchun and Junsu, will likely take the stage at the 2010 KBS Drama Awards, making it the first time they will perform on television since debuting as a trio.

"It's not 100% confirmed as of yet but we in currently in talks with JYJ for a congratulatory performance during the 2010 KBS Drama Awards," a high-ranking official from KBS said. "It would be great if they performed the song 'Calling You' from the drama 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' since Yuchun gave such a memorable performance in the drama."

He went onto explain that they are fine-tuning on several details including how many songs JYJ will sing at the awards ceremony.

Jaejung, Yuchun and Junsu made their debut in 2004 as part of the popular boy band TVXQ, but despite their phenomenal success in Asia, they ceased their activities as a group after being involved in a legal dispute with the Korean agency SM Entertainment.

They made a comeback to the music scene in October as a trio under the name JYJ and released their worldwide studio album "The Beginning" on October 14, kicking off their global showcase to promote their album and themselves in Seoul and the United States.

JYJ recently held two series of show titled the "JYJ Worldwide Concert in Seoul" at the Main Olympic Stadium in Jamsil last month.

For two months from late August, Yuchun had starred in KBS' 20-episode series "SungKyunKwan Scandal" alongside cast members Park Min-young, Song Joong-ki and Yoo A-in. The show fared moderately well, posting ratings in the mid-ten percent range toward the end of its run.

If only there was one in the LA showcase. Man I will fight for this with my life~

Last month, due to the Yeonpyeong Island bombing incident, the main source of revenue from tourists coming from sales of cosmetics stores in the Myeongdong distrct have decreased by 30%. On the contrary, sales from Nature Republic has increased by 4 times compared to the average volume of sales.

As the spokes-people for the Nature Republic brand and the center of the hot Hallyu wave, JYJ held their Seoul concert on November 27 and 28, spurring a massive influx of Japanese fans as well as tourists from other countries and initiating a cosmetics-buying frenzy.

Despite being under the extremely tense situation of the bombing attack, the reason for Korea's increase of tourism has every reason to be associated with JYJ's influence.

However, other cosmetic brands have also suffered a 20%-50% decrease of sales, even with the endorsements of Won Bin, Kim Hyun Joong, 2PM, Song Joong Ki, and SNSD. JYJ has without a doubt, the most influence across the southeast Asian countries with noticeable effects.

After Rain's endorsement, JYJ's invitation of being the faces of Nature Republic is positively expanding the industry's market share.

Junsu quotes the Song that Gave him Hope (Song title-Golden Star from Mozart!)
(Junsu) The King would say this, that the world is full of destruction. He said 'I will not look outside and will protect you in this world'. He raised the palace walls and firmly closed the door. But, unable to stop his racing heart, the prince dreamed of the world on the other side of the palace walls. Now, he must leave that place, cross over the palace walls and leave on a journey to find that star~ (11:00am KST)

(Junsu) The reasons why you are living in this dangerous world, if you want to know all this, you must set out on a journey alone. Love does not confine, love sets you free. Sometimes you must endure pain, love is tears... That is love. When the golden star falls, you must leave on a journey that leads you to the world (11:03am KST)

(Junsu) On a night when the Big Dipper shines bright, cross over those high palace walls, and fly towards that world, a place no one has ever gone before..Fly... Golden Star gave me light, courage and hope during the hardest of times.. I really like the lyrics to this song.. (11:05am KST)

I LOVE THIS SONG♥
(Junsu) I'm the major, I'm the minor, I'm the harmony, I'm the melody. Within my words, my sentences and my music.. I'm the beat, I'm the rest, I'm the harmony. I'm the forte, I'm the piano, dance and fantasy. I am, I'm, I'm the music.......... Love me just the way I am (11:33am KST)

(Junsu) With a melody that seems like it threaded feathers together with an unnameable beauty, and lyrics that sound like the person is bragging but in fact, are not that light.... Shall I say that there is a certain level of sincerity within it..? Though it is a melody that sounds like it holds a smile.. I saw the sorrow within it.. When I first heard this song, I just sat there with a vacant look for a while. (11:37am KST)

(Junsu) But above all, when I was singing this song during the death scene.. Though I could never figure it out exactly, it felt like I could somewhat understand what Mozart felt back then... Love me just the way I am... (11:42am KST)

Jaejoong gets deep
(Jaejoong) When, where, what, how, why ..These are quite important.. But there must be something more important that is the top priority above all else. (5:43pm KST)

If I was in Korea, I would have personally gone to scream at these people, no joke. (be strong Yoochun)
(Yoochun) Ah..... My annoyance level has shot up!!! Why, to the people in front of my house~Please leave (8:12pm KST)

(Yoochun) The people in front of my house... No matter how much I think about it, the only conclusion I can make is that they're anti fans (8:26pm KST)

(Yoochun) Seriously...... I'm so tired of this and I hate it...... (8:27pm KST)

Guess JiJi can't scratch Jae right now! (nice one)
(Jaejoong) JiJi's safety claws http://yfrog.com/5eq1k0j (11:15pm KST)

Jaejoong Rants about Sasaengs, Let me join you
(Jaejoong) What's worse than Sasaengs, of all the Sasaengs in Korea, are Sasaeng Taxis that work while charging high prices per hour to international fans. It doesn't matter to those who work as SaTaeks (Sasaeng Taxis) for a living that what they do is considered stalking, a crime and an invasion of privacy, as they basically tell us not to meddle in their business because they have a dead-end life anyway. (11:29pm KST)

(Jaejoong) Even if Sasaengs didn't exist, I think Sasaeng Taxis are more vicious evils of society because they lie for 'money' and say that they've found us even when we're not there, and they drive around in empty taxis looking for celebrities so that they can call fans and charge them. If your children or family do this ..I wonder if they know.. that the number of people whose privacy is invaded because of their actions is greater than they think it is. (11:34pm KST)

(Jaejoong) For the past seven years, I didn't have much time to visit friends, acquaintances and family when I had a busy day.. But because of those gaggles of people, I would waste an average of 2, 3 hours a day on the road or I would end up not being able to meet the people I had planned on meeting. I don't think you could call this affection. I understand that they want to see us so very much.. Because I used to feel that way too. (11:49pm KST)

(Jaejoong) All five of our members have cried at home or on the street, or gotten into accidents but all we saw in the front glass of Sasaeng Taxis were smiling faces. Of course, I've tried getting mad in such situations. But let's not commit acts that shorten lives in the name of such a love, not just for my sake, but for everyone's. Sorry for going off like this late at night.. (11:58pm KST)

(Jaejoong) This is kind of irrelevant, but not long ago, I asked Ji Yong, "Ji Yong, do you guys have any Sasaengs or SaTaeks who follow you around?" and he said, "Hyung, what's a SaTaek?;;" haha (12:07am KST)
(T/N: I'm pretty sure he's talking about G-Dragon aka Gwon Ji Yong from Big Bang? But I'm not sure )

(Jaejoong) Though they'll probably harass us more the more I talk about their existence.. What else can I do.. This is something they have to realize about themselves.. (12:18am KST)

LOL Kim Jaejoong IS as confident as Moon Geun Young, Take THAT Moon Hee Joon!
(Jaejoong) I just saw the show.. and I'm a fan of Hee Joon hyung, and a fan of Kangta hyung. I'm a fan of Woo Hyuk hyung. I'm a fan of Tony hyung. I'm a fan of Jae Won hyung. I'm a fan of H.O.T.~ My favorite song is "Deep Love (후애)" (3:09am KST)

The new album by Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu (henceforth known as JYJ), which cannot be heard on any station previously, was aired on the special broadcast by Radio 21 last weekend, and this has caused countless download hits after the broadcast, showing an explosion of popularity.

Due to the lawsuit with SM Entertainment (henceforth known as SM), this album cannot be broadcasted normally on the radio stations so the fans can only listen and spread the word (about the album) through the Internet.

During the interview today, reporter Kim said, “All these songs were not heard on air after the album was released; not on a single station” and “listening to their music through Radio 21 was the first time that their songs were aired in Korea, hence it received a lot of attention.”

Having heard about the issue of the broadcast, Jaejoong wrote a message on his Twitter, “Thank you Radio 21″, and after hearing the news, many of JYJ’s fans flooded the Radio 21 special bulletin board to express their gratitude, leaving messages like “I see hope in Korean broadcasts!” and “Thank you!”, as well as many other messages left in Korean, Japanese and Chinese.

TVXQ Yunho’s hand-carry bag made the record for the highest bid of KRW1,000,000* at the “Charity Auction by Hallyu Stars for Flood Victims”, held in Bangkok, Thailand.

The “Korea Festival” was held from 30 November – 5 December and it is organised by the Thai-Korean Embassy and the Korea Thailand Communication Centre (KTCC), with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand. This auction was organised to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Thai soldiers who fought in the Korean War, as well as give aid to 3,000,000 flood victims.

Cherished items were collected from top Thai stars and popular Hallyu stars like TVXQ, Super Junior, SNSD, Kim Rae Won, Cho Hyunjun and Lee Junki.


The highest amount recorded at the charity auction went to a small hand-carry leather bag and even though there are no special decorations, just by the fact that it had been touched by Yunho’s hand, it was sold at the high price of KRW1,000,000.

Lee Yoohyun, the representative for the KTCC, said, “It was an event where the Hallyu stars could confirm the great love from the Thai fans. Simple items like hats and t-shirts were auctioned off at prices ranging from KRW30,000 – KRW1,000,000.

Meanwhile, the items received from 130 Hallyu stars raised KRW24,000,000 in total and items from Art Korea artists by the Korea-Thai Chamber of Commerce and the Thai branch of the Institute for National Unification raised KRW28,000,000. This fund will be passed to the headquarters of the task force for the Thailand flood on 8 December.

*KRW1,000,000 is approximately USD$882

Micky Yoochun is the perfect example of idol borned actor. When he appeared in the Sungkyunkwan Scandal press conference, many people already have preconceptions about him for his idol status. They felt he would be like Hyunjoong from ‘Boys Over Flower’.
Looking from the end, his acting was a lot better than expected. For those that had preconception that idol born actors acting are rigid with the view “let’s see how well you can act”, made them look at him with admiration.

The producer of the drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal praised Park Yoochun in an interview saying “You can see the expression in his eyes were more and more in place. Even when there were long lines, he did not need much NG. In the middle of filming the drama he cried after remembering the lines, making me surprised.”

Truthfully, the role Park Yoochun had as Lee Sun Joon, the emotional change in character is not very obvious, so for a new actor it would be really easy to magnify their weakness.

After watching a drama CP would you praise a good looking actor’s acting in his first drama to this extent?
Even if you don’t know singer Micky Yoochun you can recognize actor Park Yoochun. Through the drama, Yoochun has captured more and more hearts of female audiences.

It looks like comments such as “new actor with amazing concentration and emotional appeal” are not from companies trying to promote their artists.
