[TRANS] 101208 If JYJ Do Appear On ‘KBS Drama Acting Awards’?… “They Can’t Sing Two Songs”

JYJ, whose three members are formerly from the group TVXQ, have been nominated to perform at the ’2010 KBS Drama Acting Awards’.

Lee Kang Hyun, the KBS Drama EP, met with our reporter at a restaurant in Seoul on the 7th and stated, “It is true that JYJ have been written down for consideration as singers invited to perform at the 2010 KBS Drama Acting Awards,” but kept cautious as he said, “However, it has not been confirmed or finalized yet.”

Following this, he explained that, “If JYJ do appear on stage, they will sing one song just like all the other singers,” and “JYJ’s side asked if JYJ could sing two songs, the ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ O.S.T ‘Found You’ and another group piece, but they cannot sing more than one song as we must keep it fair for all singers.”

[TRANS] 101208 JYJ’s KBS’ ‘Drama Acting Awards’ Appearance… Is It Happening Or Not?

KBS Drama Acting Awards Representative States, “JYJ’s Appearance Is Virtually Set..
We’re Currently Deciding On The Number Of Songs”

It has been found that the appearance of group JYJ, comprised of Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu, in the 2010 KBS Drama Acting Awards is virtually set.

A high-position representative in the KBS drama sector basically set off the countdown to JYJ’s first TV appearance when he said, “Though it has not been confirmed 100% that JYJ will perform a celebratory number at the awards ceremony, we are currently deciding upon the number of songs JYJ will sing with their side.”

This representative continued to explain that, “We pushed forward with this celebratory performance by JYJ as Yoochun left quite an impression on everyone with his acting in the KBS2 drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and as the drama’s theme song ‘Found You’, sung by JYJ, had a positive reception from viewers.”

It has been said that the two sides are deciding whether JYJ should be allowed to sing one song or two or more songs.


If JYJ are able to stand on stage at the KBS Drama Acting Awards, this will be their first domestic TV appearance since the formation of their group.

Though the trio, from the group TVXQ, released their first album ‘The Beginning’ in October, they have not been able to actively perform due to their problems with SM Entertainment.

JYJ’s troubles escalated when the Korean Federation of Pop Culture and Art Industry sent an official document to broadcasting and cable companies, as well as online and offline album distribution companies, urging them to restrict JYJ’s activities. This was the reason why JYJ’s celebratory performance at the Blue Dragon Film Awards on the 26th fell through at the last minute.

Fans are highly anticipating this appearance at the KBS Drama Acting Awards as this may be the catalyst that allows JYJ to appear on TV broadcasting companies’ shows in Korea.

On the other hand, JYJ are currently on a break after their ‘Worldwide Concert in Seoul’ that was held at the Jamshi Olympic Stadium on the 27th and 28th.

[INFO] JiJi's "Safety Nails"

Many fans have expressed confusion upon seeing JiJi's "safety nails" that Jaejoong tweeted about a couple of days ago:


No, Jaejoong didn't not put nail polish on JiJi's claws!

The "safety nails" are small plastic tips that you can slip over your cat's nails to stop them from scratching and destroying furniture. They are a safe and humane alternative to declawing, which can be quite painful and traumatizing for a cat. Many pet owners use them! Take a look:



Aren't they cute?

[TRANS] 101203 JYJ's Junsu Has Been Secretly 'Building Houses Of Love'

JYJ member Junsu (23), who originally comes from the group TVXQ, has been secretly performing good deeds.

According to ADRA Korea, a domestic aid organization that works in collaboration with the United Nations, Junsu has been sponsoring the 'Building Houses of Love' project which improves the housing conditions of neglected classes of people. This is a life-support project that ADRA Korea organized in May of last year with the local government of Dangjin, ChungCheongnam-do.

Since 2008, Junsu, along with his fans, has been donating money to ADRA Korea. With these funds as a foothold, ADRA Korea recently expanded their 'Building Houses of Love' business and are currently constructing a house for Mr. Kim, who is currently living in Godae-myun, Dangjin.

Mr. Kim's family of eleven has been living in unfortunate conditions within an old house in which water leaks through the roof. However, with the help of Junsu and his fans, Mr. Kim's house is developing into a timber-frame house with many amenities such as a kitchen, bathroom, living room and study room. It is planned to be completed by the end of this month.

On November 21st, Junsu's fans visited Mr. Kim's house and had a great time with his family when they took his children out for a picnic. Junsu's parents also attended this outing and presented Mr. Kim's children with scholarships.

Last year, Junsu participated in ADRA Korea's campaign in Cambodia that fixed houses for the impoverished.

[TRANS] 101203 Jaejoong Is The Most Sought-After Idol Amongst Drama Producers

He's "Currently Considering His Options"

'First Micky Yoochun, now YoungWoong Jaejoong!'

Group JYJ's YoungWoong Jaejoong is currently the most sought-after idol star for dramas and many are wondering if this means he will debut into the domestic drama scene any time soon.

Beating all the idol stars currently active, YoungWoong Jaejoong is the most sought-after idol amongst drama producers and has been receiving numerous love calls. Though there are many idols who have gone into acting, a rumor is circulating within the industry that YoungWoong Jaejoong is an actor who 'will bring great success if you catch him'.

A representative in the drama production field stated, "'Sunao Ni Narenakute', the Japanese drama YoungWoong Jaejoong appeared in, attracted quite a large amount of popularity in Japan," and "As it is now important for drama producers to take the Japanese market into consideration, YoungWoong Jaejoong has become the most sought-after star in the domestic drama industry."

Also, the fact that YoungWoong Jaejoong has been highly praised for his acting, which is more stable compared to that of other idols who have been swept up in controversies over their lack of acting abilities, in the movie 'Postman to Heaven' and the Japanese drama 'Sunao Ni Narenakute' is an added bonus.

Regarding this, YoungWoong Jaejoong's representative stated, "It is true that he has been receiving many offers to appear in Korean dramas. He is indeed planning to appear in a domestic drama. However, nothing has been set in stone yet, and he is currently considering when and what production he wishes to appear in."

If YoungWoong Jaejoong is successfully cast in a drama, it will become an issue hotter than member Micky Yoochun's decision to appear in the KBS drama 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' as this will be his domestic drama debut.

[TRANS] 101203 'TVXQ Trio' JYJ's TV Appearance Falls Through.. Why?

It has been found that TVXQ's Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu (JYJ) attempted to appear on TV but it fell through in the end.

According to a representative in the Kpop industry, JYJ were nominated to perform a celebratory number at 'The 31st Blue Dragon Film Awards' that was aired on November 26th on KBS 2TV. For this, their KBS Kpop review was quickly done a week before the awards ceremony.

Usually, the review is done even before the album is released, but for JYJ, their review was done one month after their 'The Beginning' album was released in October. It has been confirmed that a total of seven songs, including JYJ's title song 'Empty', were deemed suitable for airing according to the results published on November 24th after the KBS Kpop review.

However, JYJ's appearance fell through. This seems to be because of JYJ's legal dispute with SM Entertainment. Furthermore, an extreme amount of pressure would have been placed on KBS if they had allowed JYJ to perform as pop culture-related associations are siding against JYJ, such as the Korean Federation of Pop Culture and Art Industry that sent out an official document to broadcasting and cable companies, as well as music distribution companies, demanding that JYJ's activities be restricted.

However, the 'Blue Dragon Film Awards' was not the only event where this happened. Even though it is now almost two months since JYJ's album release, we still cannot hear their music on TV or the radio. This has occurred though there have been many netizens asking radio stations to turn JYJ's music on as they have yet to hear these songs anywhere though the album has been released.

One Kpop representative stated, "If JYJ does not solve their dispute with SM, they will be faced with many more obstacles in the future if they wish to continue to sing," and "There are many producers who have raised their voices stating that regulations on activities must become more strict so that something like this does not happen again."

JYJ filed an exclusive contract suspension injunction against SM last July. They began their activities by releasing their first album under the name JYJ and holding showcases, but they have not been able to stand on a TV show's stage in Korea yet.

[TRANS] 101208 TVXQ Will Perform In Both Korea And Japan With One Title Track

Expected To Simultaneously Rank #1 In Both Countries

TVXQ are planning to perform in both Korea and Japan with the same title track.

TVXQ, now a duo with U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin, made an announcement through their official homepage on November 23rd that they will make a comeback next January. Following this, they announceed through their Japanese agency AVEX on December 2nd that they will be releasing a new single on January 26th.

The unknown song they are planning to sing is receiving great attention as TVXQ is planning to perform it in both Korea and Japan at the same time. TVXQ's agency SM Entertainment stated, "TVXQ are planning to perform the same title track in both Korea and Japan in January."

All the SM artistes, including TVXQ, BoA, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, SHINee and f(x), will be holding their Japan leg of the 'SMTOWN LIVE WORLD TOUR' on January 25th and 26th in Tokyo, Japan. Because this overlaps with the release of TVXQ's new single, there is a great possibility that they will be kicking off their activities in Japan at the SM TOWN concert.

On the other hand, TVXQ's Japanese comeback has been met with an explosive response from Japanese fans. On major album sites such as HMV and Tower Records, TVXQ's new single, set to release on January 26th, rose to #1 on the ranking charts as soon as it was released, thus proving their continued popularity in Japan.
