[NEWS] KBS confirms JYJ’s performance for the ‘2010 Drama Awards’

Last week, JYJ’s first broadcast appearance in Korea via KBS’s “2010 Drama Awards” was reported to be under discussion.

Recently, a representative from KBS’s drama team confirmed on December 14th that JYJ will be performing “Found You” – a track from the “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” OST – for December 31st.

Representatives of JYJ and KBS were said to have argued over the number of songs to be performed in the beginning, but both sides ended up agreeing to KBS’s initial request for a one-song congratulatory performance.

JYJ met with various obstacles in October after the release of their debut album, “The Beginning“, due to legal issues with SM Entertainment. Yet KBS came forward and requested their appearance, reasoning that Yoochun was one of the leading stars for its drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, and that JYJ sang the OST for it.

This performance may allow future opportunities for the boys to perform in additional public venues.

[TRANS] Xiah Junsu’s contract for ‘Tears of Heaven’ musical revealed

A confirmation photo of Xiah Junsu’s musical contract for ‘Tears of Heaven‘ has been revealed in order to clarify speculations on his performance wage for the musical.

According to the contract, Xiah Junsu was contracted to receive $7,000 USD for each of his 10-20 performances.

Xiah Junsu expressed,
“Vague rumors regarding the performance fees are ungrounded. I feel it is just a great honor for me to work alongside world-renown maestro Frank Wildhorn and other respected stars. I like how the music has both classic and pop elements.
“These days, the musical market is greatly diminishing, and I have great interest in original Korean musicals with global aims. Even though a lot of Korean movies and music have already advanced into the global market, there aren’t a lot of cases for Korean musicals. I felt that ‘Tears of Heaven’ was such a great musical that it could succeed internationally, which is why I decided to help in its investments.”

Not only is ‘Jekyll & Hyde‘ director Frank Wildhorn a part of the production staff, but the director of ‘Sweeney Todd‘, Gabriel Barre, has signed on as well. Worldwide famous musical star Brad Little will also be acting alongside Korean actors for ‘Tears of Heaven’>

[TRANS] 101214 Tohoshinki to Sing Theme Song for Fuji TV's Drama

On the 23rd of last month, the shocking news that the "new" Tohoshinki would be making a comeback next January was made; and now, their new song will become the theme song for a drama.

The new song, named "torn", is described to portray the gloomy torn feelings in a tangled relationship between a man and a woman. They commented, "It is a powerful dance song that you will be able to enjoy." Although the number of their members has been reduced from 5 to 2, they will not let if affect them in order to come up with the song and to show the audience a powerful stage. With powerful beats, the partial lyrics of the song is revealed, "Is love a crime? Is pain a punishment?". They expressed, "Please expect us to show you our tough and manly side."

The producer of the drama, Toyofuku Youko, personally chose the song for the drama. The drama is titled "Utsukushii Rinjin" (Beautiful Neighbor). In this drama, actress Nakama Yukie will portray an evil woman, while her co-star Dan Rei will be playing the character of a happy housewife who lives next door; and this suspense drama is about how their quiet everyday life is destroyed. Since this story is about woman vs. woman, to avoid creating an overly sweet atmosphere, the producer interfused the world of this drama with a song sung by male vocals.

Upon learning about their comeback, producer Toyofuku immediately offered them the chance. She expressed her thoughts upon listening to the song for the first time, "It is a very thorny and captivating song that captures the instinct of a woman such as jealousy, love and passion. It portrays perfectly the poison that every woman carries, and I immediately thought that it was the one."

The drama will air every Tuesday 10pm starting from January 11.

-Omit general information on Tohoshinki, DVDs, and SM Town in Tokyo-
