When the interview was coming to an end, we asked JYJ to participate in Sports Chosun’s ‘Star&Handwritten Message’ special corner. Though we provided them with pens of every color, the three members all chose black to write their messages. They wrote ‘Merry Christmas’, ‘We hope the last month of this year is a happy one for you’ and ‘Be happy in 2011!’ What are JYJ’s plans for the end of this year and the beginning of next year?
Junsu is planning to solidify his position as a musical actor with his participation in the musical ‘Tears of Heaven’. He stated, “I have to do well. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like falling behind others, no matter what is given to me.” He wants to be able to end it without feeling unsatisfied, and certainly with no regrets, and he hopes his efforts will fill his pride a little.
Yoochun will be prioritizing his work as JYJ but is thinking of continuing his work as an actor through a drama or a movie.
The same goes for Jaejoong, who was a hit in the Japanese drama ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’. Because both have put JYJ activities as their priority, they will have to concede to each other.
To be honest, 2010 was not a smooth year for JYJ. There wasn’t a single thing that was easily accessible to JYJ due to various events such as natural disaster that made what used to be easily attainable the unattainable. But they had to work hard in order to not disgrace the name of TVXQ and the members. Each time an adversity faced them, the members stuck together and brought about amazing results. Junsu stated, “At first, we weren’t expecting much and it felt like we were walking down a narrow path but I believe the year ended well. I think what happened this year will give us the energy to work harder in the future.”
JYJ will be officially releasing their album in the US in mid-January. Afterwards, they plan on holding an Asia tour in countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, China and Hong Kong. Though they’ve had many overseas schedules already from their days as TVXQ, so many that they’ve renewed their passports three times, they still enjoy riding airplanes and they’ve vowed to continue to work hard on scheduling more domestic activities. Jaejoong stated, “We have to be loved by our mother country. I do hear that I’m popular overseas, and there are times when the other members are envious of my popularity. But Yoochun and Junsu both were a hit through their drama and musical. Though international fans are important, I want to be loved by my home country.“
JYJ’s New Year’s Resolution was quite simple. Becoming happier and straightening things out a little. Jaejoong said, “In the end, things have worked out well but there was much sorrow in the process. And there were mistakes that could be called failures. As this is just the process of building the strong foundation for this new road we’re walking on, we won’t be expecting much success and we won’t be greedy.”
