[TRANS] TVXQ’s Popularity Still Continues

Girl’s Generation and KARA are both groups that won first place awards at the Japanese Golden Disk Awards.

This was the 25th Golden Disk Awards in Japan, and both Girl’s Generation and KARA won rookie awards for best artist of the year. KARA was selected as best artist of the year for the “Non-Japanese” category and Girl’s Generation was selected for the “Traditional Japanese” category.

Also Tohoshinki, who have recently paused their activities in Japan, won the best 5 album of the year for their “Best Selection 2010″ collection and were also awarded best music video of the year for their “Tohoshinki Video Clip Collection-The One”, which is proof that their popularity still continues without a change.

[TRANS] 110103 TVXQ Vs JYJ’s New Song Battle, All That Gets Hurt Is The Fandom

Five guys once soared as TVXQ. Now, their battle of nerves is bruising their fandom.

They have split into ’2:3′ and released new songs, causing an unseen friction between the two sides. This is because both new songs contain lyrics that seem to attack the opposite side. This feud is scarring the fans who have supported all five members unchangingly till now; some say that they feel confused from the two sides splitting and pushing the blame onto each other.

The controversy exploded on the 3rd when the title song of the 2-unit TVXQ’s new album was released. The song is expected to cause a ripple effect as its lyrics seem to be attacking JYJ, the members who left SM Entertainment.
The controversial lyrics includes parts such as ‘You probably think I’ll crumble without you/That’s a delusion you’ve had from before/Why are you acting like this, I reasoned with you’, ‘I was really sad/That you, who are immature, might meet a bad person’, ‘Have you ever thought that someone might worry about you, who lets go of love so easily’. Though they have explained that the song is about a man and woman faced with a painful parting, JYJ come to mind when these lyrics are heard.

The same goes for JYJ. The song Pierrot, that ws released during JYJ’s concert, contains lyrics that raises speculation such as ‘I hate those days that were like living in a prison. Bye bye bye forever’.

One entertainment representative stated, “Both sides probably have deep emotional scars from this issue,” and “But if they attempt to resolve an issue in such an emotional way, they will hurt fans and give them scars that will never heal.”

[NEWS] 110107 Super Junior’s Sungmin and Shindong defend TVXQ on Xiah Junsu’s tweet

Ever since Xiah Junsu tweeted an emotional series of messages to U-know Yunho, it seems like more and more SM Entertainment artists are coming out to defend the two TVXQ members. The latest of these public dissidents are Super Junior’s Sungmin and Shindong, who each took to their Twitter or mini-hompy to express their thoughts on the controversy.

On January 7th, Sungmin wrote,

“After keeping it in after sometime, I’m leaving this message because I feel this has gone too far. Does (he) not remember the old days when we said we’d work hard together? We were happy even when we were practicing. Did (he) really forget the times when we thought going on broadcast even just once felt like a dream? I’d like it if (he) could look in the mirror once again and think whether (he) has forgotten his rookie mindset~ I understood and forgave them for leaving us without a single word so they could find their own paths, but I don’t know why they are making a fool out of themselves by quietly saying all kinds of these absurd lies and hurtful sayings.”


Meanwhile, Shindong, who followed BoA and retweeted Black Beat’s Sim Jaewon’s tweet, also added,

“Enemy (敵): An opponent who wants to fight or hurt another.

Ingratitude (背恩忘德): An attitude of one throwing away their indebtedness to someone and betraying them.

In other words, saying that my family wants to fight or hurt another is an attitude of one throwing away their indebtedness to them and betraying them!”

[NEWS] TVXQ reflects on first comeback stage, Yunho clarifies his ‘Thanks To’ message


After pre-recording for their comeback stage on KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank” today, the boys of TVXQ met with reporters to discuss their love for the stage, their ambition for a strong performance, and to clarify the controversial ‘Thanks To’ message.

Starting off, the duo shared, “We’ve wanted to stand on stage for a while. It’s really emotional.” Yunho continued, “It feels unique coming to the broadcast hall after such a long time. I’m more excited than nervous about our first stage. Unfortunately, I caught a cold, and wasn’t able to show the best stage possible.”
Changmin added, “While watching the year-end award ceremonies last year, all I could think about was wanting to stand on stage. I thought I’d be nervous, but maybe this is what it feels like to come back home after studying abroad.”

The reporter brought up how fans have waited for their return for over two years, to which Yunho replied, “We’ll work as hard as our fans have waited for our return. We’ll be standing on many stages as singers, and appear on variety shows as well. It’s important to do well, but even more important to try our best. Please look forward to us.”

In an interview with Star News, Yunho stated, “It’s been a while since we’ve stood on a Korean stage, so I was very excited, feeling very much like a rookie again. We’ve gotten a lot of juniors here at the broadcast hall, and I felt thankful in being greeted by them. We’ll be promoting ‘Keep Your Head Down‘, and we’ll show a good image to our fellow seniors, juniors, and our fans.”

Changmin added, “It feels good returning to Korea. The broadcast hall feels like our home, it’s very fun.”

Regarding the controversy surrounding ‘the second coming of TVXQ‘ statement in his ‘Thanks To’, Yunho clarified, “It’s just an expression of our feelings in starting our activities again as a duo. After a long while, Changmin and I have released an album, the message was just meant to be an expression of greeting our fans again. It’s our new sense of determination.”

When asked about the differences between singing a song with two members as opposed to five, Yunho answered, “First of all, you need more stamina. Changmin took charge of the high notes while I covered the lower notes. I was worried about whether they’d match, but thankfully it harmonizes well. We tried to pay attention to every part of our choreography. It’s an album we’re confident in, as we’ve put our best in it for our fans to look forward to.”

The duo also completed an interview with KBS 2TV’s “Entertainment Relay,” which will broadcast at 9 PM KST on January 8th.

[TRANS] 110105 Jeon In Hwa: "I'm Jaejoong's Ideal Woman? That Kid Has Good Taste"

Actress Jeon In Hwa revealed her daughter's jealousy over JYJ's YoungWoong Jaejoong.

On KBS 2TV's 'Kim Seung Woo's On A Roll (승승장구)', Jeon In Hwa stated that that she became the receiver of her daughter's jealousy after YoungWoong Jaejoong revealed that his ideal woman was the actress.

Jeon In Hwa explained that, "One day, my daughter came up to me and said 'Mom, you're so lucky' with an expression of dissatisfaction." It had been that her young daughter was overcome with jealousy because YoungWoong Jaejoong confessed that Jeon In Hwa was his ideal woman.

Jeon In Hwa, who didn't know who YoungWoong Jaejoong was at the time, aroused laughter from the guests when she added that, "My daughter showed me a picture of him and my first thought was that he's such a handsome boy. My daughter kept muttering and saying things like 'YoungWoong Jaejoong's eyesight must be bad' but he made the right choice. The kid has good taste."

On the other hand, Jeon In Hwa chose Hyun Bin as her ideal man and revealed that she would like to work with him if she was given the chance.

[TRANS] 110104 JYJ's Love Lives Become Talking Point; Talks About Ideal Type

The group JYJ [Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong, Kim Junsu] has been garnering a lot of interest recently.

They, who used to be a part of the 5-member group TVXQ, released their first album "The Beginning" in October last year. Park Yoochun also excelled in his role in the drama "SungKyunKwan Scandal", gaining a lot of support from the audience. JYJ, who originated from TVXQ, enjoys high popularity not only in Korea, but around the world as well. As such, after they went solo, it was a great loss to the cultural and arts industry. They performed for the first time during the "2010 KBS Drama Acting Awards" last December and earned positive comments from TV audiences. Especially for Park Yoochun, who starred in his first TV drama, we reveal their thoughts regarding the rumours that surfaced in the interview below.

TVD: With regards to the rumour between Park Yoochun and Park Minyoung, what are the members thoughts? Do you feel envious?

JYJ: We think it's nice. As for being envious, we knew how difficult it was during the process of filming, so we were more worried than anything else.

TVD: The members talk about Park Yoochun's acting.

JYJ: We think he really has a flair for acting. We saw images of the filming and went down to the filming site to cheer him on. From then on, we were not just members of Yoochun, but fans who have immersed in the drama and hoped that it could be longer.

TVD: JYJ expressed that there is no one in particular that they have been in close contact with recently and they basically don't have situations where they try to match-make the other members. In this cold winter season, they are still single. For JYJ who don't have lovers, what are their ideal types?

Jaejoong: Even if she only has average looks, she must have beautiful hands and feet. As for girls who are exceptionally pretty, she must have a pair of hands that is suitably pretty to match her beauty. Also, during summer, there are always a lot of girls that I develop positive feelings for because during summer, everyone bares their feet, so I can see if their feet are pretty or not. Also, it's important that she's fit and healthy.

TVD: What is Junsu's ideal type like then?

Junsu: The type where I can fall in love with at first sight. There's no fixed type, as long as she has a cute style and has a bright and bubbly personality. Someone who is enthusiastic about the work that they do. For example, actresses Kim Jeung Eun and Han Ye Seul are my ideal types.

TVD: Yoochun is also no exception.

Yoochun: I'm also not too sure what my ideal type is, but I guess if I have to say it, it will be Kim Tae Hee. While filming "SungKyunKwan Scandal" I saw the reports that said she was watching the drama and that she felt it's not bad, and that made me really happy, so I worked really hard to film it. Haha.

TVD: The girl he wants to date is?

Yoochun: I've never brought a girlfriend home to meet my mom, so if I really do fall in love this time, I definitely want her to meet my mom. I think my girlfriend will have to be someone wise and easygoing.

To JYJ who are still single currently, their love lives have garnered a lot of interest from everyone.

[TRANS] Netizens buzz over JYJ Yoochun’s lyrics for “Untitled Song”

Although their album has yet to be released, a specific track from JYJ has been garnering a lot of speculation.

“Untitled Song Part 1” was composed by member Yoochun and features lyrics expressing his experience under SM Entertainment.

A segment from his lyrics state:
“In 2003, we finished our first match after months of rehearsal
By 2004, we were the rookies of the month
But unable to be satisfied with all of the rookie awards,
We began desiring for more
In 2005, we advanced into Japan
Thought it would be as easy as Korea
But after selling only 4,000 copies of our first single
Our confidence dropped to the floor
We couldn’t even speak Japanese,
Every day consisted of pacing between our dorm and the company
It was an imprisonment under the disguise of what’s best for us
Excessive loneliness, tears, and anger
We said those were what turned us into one,
That no matter what would happen, to never disband..
But I’m going to turn my back to you, since you already changed”

While it’s clear that Yoochun was recounting his frustrations with SME, netizens have been puzzling over whether or not the song was an indirect statement involving TVXQ as well. Jaejoong’s lyrics for “Pierrot” received similar attention, but an interview clarified that the song was about ”the reality of the education system“.

[NEWS] 110107 Boa and SM's Sim Jae Won Responds to Junsu's Tweet


We've reported that Junsu had directed his disappointed tweets toward a certain hyung.

Sim Jaewon, a former member of the SM group Black Beat and one of SM's current choreographers, recently tweeted saying, "I can't just let this pass.. ..Little brother, this is really not right.... Who's at blame here? Don't pretend to be upset. Who do you think is really hurt....? You're so ungrateful, how could you do this...?"

BoA retweeted his tweet and fans have interpreted this tweet to be directed to Junsu, especially because of the "hyung" and "little brother" reference. Many JYJ fans are outraged, but many others are now cautious to take a step into the matter.

No JYJ or HoMin Bashings! TQ very much!!!

[TRANS] 110106 'Thank You, Park Yoochun' - A Poem Dedicated To Him By A Korean Author

This excerpt is taken from a Korean author, Yoo Min Eun's, compilation of poems "The Lack Of Time Everywhere" - focuses on Yoochun

Thank you, Park Yoochun
Like fireworks, blossoming on television
I bypass Park Yoochun, the man who makes my heart flutter like my first love
And sit on a street nearby
Unable to hold onto the lover's screams
In this clamorous world, where should I go?
Unnamed flowers bloom everywhere
His smile makes the rustling wind stop
His tears melt the frost from the glass windows
Park Yoochun as Seon Joon
Reading the classics in television at SunKyunKwan
The girls who use Maple leaves as makeup
Bustle with excitement searching him up on the internet, embracing him
Through the years like the turning of the wheel
They look upon him
When it turns into a deep scar, when it turns into a sin
Thank you, Park Yoochun
Not knowing shame even at my age
Looking at your smile, makes me embarrassed
Thank you, Park Yoochun
You allow my heavy heart to turn into the sunshine of Spring

[TRANS] 110105 TVXQ-Big Bang-MBLAQ: Fierce Competition Among Male Groups In New Year

In the start of the new year of 2011, the competition between male idol groups is already heating up.

While MBLAQ, leading the new generation of male groups like INFINTE, Teen Top and more, is releasing their new album, the original top idol groups like TVXQ and Big Bang are releasing their new albums at the same time. This is also an indication that the music industry, which has been a “woman’s world” in recent years, will be blown away by the male groups.

On the 5th, TVXQ released their title track “Why (Keep Your Head Down)” from their special album and the Big Bang sub-unit GD&TOP released 3 title tracks – “High High”, “Oh Yeah” and “Knock Out” – attracting a lot of popularity. Some time in January, Big Bang’s maknae Seungri will be releasing his solo album.

Before the release of their first full length album, MBLAQ entered the exciting battle with the release of their title song “Cry” on the 3rd. Once “Cry” was released, they have been rising up the ranks of real-time search rankings on music sites like Mnet, Bugs and more, becoming a part of the battle for the top with competitors like TVXQ, Big Bang and IU.

In comparison with the same time frame last year, this is a drastic change as SNSD dominated the music industry with “Gee” and “Oh!” then.
