On February 14th, Junsu and Yoochun of JYJ visited the Seoul Military Manpower Administration to receive health checks. Health checks are conducted to determine if Korean males are healthy enough to serve in the military. Member Jaejoong received a health check one week earlier.

JYJ's management company C-JeS confirmed this to be true and stated, "The members will absolutely enlist, but since JYJ is doing promotions right now, they want to adjust the time. Since some members may not be eligible [physical requirements not met], they may have to get checked again."

On February 15th, TVXQ’s Yunho moved viewers on SBS’s “Strong Heart“ by revealing the story behind his characteristic ‘thumbs-up pose’.

He stated, “When I first came up from Gwangju, my father and grandfather disapproved of my trainee life severely. At one point, I lost all support from my home and was forced to sleep homeless at a subway station in Seoul.”

Yunho continued, “Right before I debuted, my grandfather passed away. I heard that his condition was bad while we were recording for our debut album, so I went back down to my hometown. My grandfather, who was always known to be quiet, gave me a thumbs up. That was the last image I have of him.”

“For three days, I cried night and day. And then I became determined – I will rise to the top one day and keep my promise to my grandfather. Only then would I let go all of the tears I held up inside of me. If you look closely, I have a lot of pictures of me with the thumbs up pose, and it’s because I never want to forget the promise I made with my grandfather.”

He concluded, “I hope to receive a lot of good awards at the year’s end, and cry to my heart’s content.”

Later on the show, Yunho also showed off his ‘four leaf clover trick’ with his tongue, which amused the studio greatly since other idols showed off talents like dancing or voice imitations.

Changmin hilariously added, “It’s kind of weird staring at another person’s tongue like this.”

Girl’s Day’s Minah had confessed on an earlier show that she’s been a huge fan of TVXQ’s Yunho; in fact, her love has spanned over eight years! To her delight, the young star was able to not only stand on the same stage with him, but she also performed with Yunho as well.

On the latest episode of SBS’s “Strong Heart“, Minah performed a ‘kkab‘ version of HyunA’s “Change” choreography. With overly-exaggerated movements, Minah succeeded in cracking up her audience, as they called out, “Daebak, daebak!“”

MC Kang Ho Dong added that it was the most shocking female idol dance he had ever seen in the program’s existence.

On today’s episode of SBS’ Strong Heart, TVXQ’s Yunho, was a guest along with fellow member Changmin. On the show, Yunho revealed the origin of his stage name.

He stated, “My singer / stage name is U-Know Yunho, and it stands for ‘you know me and I know you’. To tell you the truth, I thought of the name from an online game I used to play. My username for that game was ‘U-Know Yunho’. In the game, I reached the high level of ’supreme’, which was right before the highest level of ‘God’. Right before I became God, I debuted in TVXQ (Rising Gods Of The East).”

It’s quite hilarious that we all expect their names to come from some place more meaningful… well, I guess that game was pretty important to Yunho.

On this week’s episode of SBS’s “Strong Heart”, former H.O.T member Moon Hee Jun expressed his amazement over the growth of TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin.

“Eight years ago, when Yunho and Changmin came up to me as trainees and greeted me, I just said “Okay” and didn’t give it a second thought. Back then, the two got kicked out of the practice room and went into the basement because of me,” said Moon Hee Jun.

He continued, “But now, they’re sitting in the rows in front of me. If I knew they were going to be this successful, I should’ve just gone down to the basement instead,” causing the set to roar with laughter.

Turning to the witty and hilarious Changmin, Moon Hee Jun praised, “My cute junior Changmin has finally burst with comedy after eight years. I’m envious of Changmin today.”

Moon Hee Jun even commented on a previous confession by Girl’s Day’s Min Ah about her being a long time fangirl of Yunho’s. “To my dear Junists (Moon Hee jun’s fanclub), please become singers and come onto “Strong Heart”. And I beg you, please talk about me.”

On February 15th, TVXQ’s Yunho guested on SBS’s “Strong Heart” and shared his personal story about being terrorized by an anti-fan.

After TVXQ released their third album in October of 2006, an anti-fan had given Yunho a drink with an adhesive mixed in. After drinking it, he began to vomit and was immediately rushed to the ER; the idol was hospitalized for a few days of treatment. Although the ant-fan turned herself in, the shock of the incident did not wear off for some time.

Yunho revealed, “A long time ago, I was terrorized by a drink. Someone gave me a drink with a poisonous substance in it, and I thought, ‘why did it have to be me? I don’t even know that person, why did I have to be terrorized?’”

He continued, “At that age, the incident was something bigger than what I could handle. Even though I can laugh and talk about it now, I was truly afraid of people then.”

Rookie actor Park Yoo Hwan recently expressed his gratitude toward his older brother, JYJ’s Yoochun, for giving him a car as a present.

Park Yoo Hwan told Star News on February 15th, “I’ve always really liked cars and had a lot of interest in them. After passing my driver’s test recently, I found a car that I liked and pestered my brother about it; he really ended up buying it for me as a present.”

The car Yoochun bought his brother was a mid-sized sedan. Yoo Hwan explained, “I know that the prices of cars depend on the car options. It wasn’t over $80,000 USD.”

He continued, “I nagged him, saying that I’ll try my best if he buys it for me. It was Christmas at the time, and since it was around the time I was preparing for my debut, he bought it for me as a message of encouragement.”

“When I told him that I wanted to become an actor, hyung became worried and said, “It’s not an easy path to take”. I became worried as well, but in the end I made my decision. Hyung supported me and said that since I’ve already started, he told me to earn myself a good result.”

Yoo Hwan concluded, “I’m really thankful that I received such a big present. I want to work my best and give back to my hyung to avoid disappointing his expectations.”

Park Yoo Hwan is currently acting in the new MBC drama, “Shiny Shiny Shining.”

JYJ’s Foreign Fans Launch Petition in 10 Languages, “Protect JYJ’s Rights”

Foreign fans are mobilising for JYJ, who are in the midst of a lawsuit with SM Entertainment over their exclusive [contract].

As of the 14th, foreign fans of JYJ are continuing a petition that aims to protect and get recognised JYJ’s rights.

Foreign fans have opened and continue to monitor a page dedicated to the petition, which has been translated into 10 languages, including English, Chinese, Japanese, and French. Korean fans are not permitted to participate.

Since this petition directly addresses [JYJ’s] lawsuit on the validity of their contract, it will be submitted to the court. Fans have concluded that this lawsuit is causing JYJ’s inability to appear on music programmes as well as other constraints in their supposedly free entertainment activities.

Previously JYJ fans launched an ad campaign on January 27th with messages supporting JYJ. As a result, 120 buses in Seoul and other important cities (Gwangju, Daejeon, Daegu, Busan) are carrying the advertisement, “[JYJ] we cheer on your youth” for a month.
