[TRANS 101207 First Broadcast Of JYJ’s Music In Korea – Explosion Of Popularity Creates Interest

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.

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
