The fanmade internet broadcasting station for JYJ will finally launch on March 3rd.

Preparations for the project first began on January through an internet fancafe. Support was provided through various donations, and recruitment notices were posted for web designers, DJs, and writers to help get the project up and running. The official homepage was completed two months later, and it was announced that the program would hold its first broadcast at 8:00 PM KST with a two-hour long session to kick off its opening.

The first day of broadcast is expected to include comments and videos congratulating the station opening from gagmen, actors, broadcast stars, singers, and musical actors. It’ll also include a ‘top 20′ ranking, as well as fan-made JYJ-related poetry, pictures and music videos.

For the first week, each day will consist of mini specials on each of the three members. After the opening, standard broadcasts will run for an hour per session.

On the March 2nd episode of MBC’s “Knee-Drop Guru“, TVXQ’s Yunho revealed all the hardships he had to endure before joining SM Entertainment as a trainee.

He started, “The first time I went to Seoul was for a vacation, and at the time I was very young, and had only 3,500 won ($3.10 USD). I really wanted to buy an item that costed 15,000 won ($13.35 USD), but couldn’t afford it.”

Yunho continued, “Soon after, I found a part-time job to make some money for myself. It was good practice for the future.”

Changmin confessed that his situation was the complete opposite, as he only had to clean a pair of his father’s shoes for his allowance.

It turns out that the powerful ‘TVXQ effect’ didn’t boost ratings for the March 2nd episode of MBC’s “Knee-Drop Guru” as originally thought.

On March 3rd, AGB Nielson Media Research revealed that the boys raked in a 14.8% rating, a 4.5% drop from last week’s episode, which recorded 19.3%.

Although the ratings were a bit disappointing, TVXQ had nonetheless delighted both fans and viewers, as they shared a wealth of stories, including their experience with ‘Sasaeng’ fans, the reason Changmin decided to join SM Entertainment, and more!

The TVXQ duo revealed some shocking incidents they experienced from their ’sasaeng fans’ on “Knee-Drop Guru“.

When MC Kang Ho Dong asked the two members the question, “Did you ever have a hard time because of the excessive love you received from fans?‘. Changmin responded, “I changed my phone number because I got a lot of prank calls. 5 minutes after I changed my number, I got a text on the number saying ‘You changed your number’, which shocked me“.

Yunho added, “It’s very mysterious. I changed my phone number again and I got a text saying ‘Changing your number frequently isn’t good’. I also got pictures of items that could only be found in our dorm. I was very surprised at that time“.

Changmin made the audience laugh by saying in jest, “If you know my phone number, it means that you have looked through my personal information, which is a violation of the law. Taking pictures of our dorm is also a violation of the law as it’s housebreaking“.

The method of support Japanese fans chose for JYJ is becoming a hot topic.

On the 26th, a video project supporting JYJ was shown all across Japan on large screens. The video project was an event set up to say, 'Project the rights of the international fans so that they can see their favorite singer on stage,' with regards to the restrictions placed on JYJ's Japanese activities.

The video was shown on large screens in bustling cities such as Tokyo, Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka. Fans left the message, "We will not give up on JYJ and we will continue to support them unchangingly," in the video.

Domestic fans who heard of this news sent their support to their Japanese counterparts as they said, "Though we live in different places, our hearts are the same," and "I really understand what they're feeling right now."

“As a fellow member, I was a little hurt”.

TVXQ poured their hearts out on March 2nd’s episode of “Knee-Drop Guru“.

Explaining their feelings about JYJ breaking off from TVXQ, Yunho stated,”It was a shock to me at that time. I didn’t know [they] filed an injunction. My heart was broken by thinking that our big success at such a young age caused all of this“.

He added, “I was also disappointed as a member that they even took the situation as far as filing a lawsuit. I can personally handle being called a ‘traitor’ but I regretted the situation influencing my beloved and respected parents“.

Changmin revealed his feelings, saying “The situation has been written in the papers and some talked badly about my parents. My father is still a teacher so I felt bad about him getting hurt. I also felt bad at the thought that my siblings or friends would become adults holding this pain in their hearts“.

Changmin reminisced about the then 5-member TVXQ’s final performance in 2009 at NHK’s ‘Red and White Collaboration‘ saying, ”I looked at my schedule and I didn’t see anything. We were performing at a prestigious and memorable event, and I felt sad at the thought that this could possibly be our last stage. We advanced into Japan as raw newbies and it was a great time to profit from it, I didn’t know why I was performing a sad song at such a happy and fun stage”.

Yunho said, “I felt uncomfortable singing on that stage. We had a lot of memories and we came all the way here with one shared dream and I felt afraid that our last stage could take place at one of the most prestigious awards shows. So I felt as if I sang with a sad face, I’d be acknowledging (the situation) so I sang even harder.”

In addition, he revealed the hardships he went through in preparation for the new album, “For the new album, we needed to give off the TVXQ feeling / vibe with only 2 members, so it was hard filling the empty space. We practiced until the early morning, even after all the trainees left“.

At the question “Are the lyrics to ‘Keep Your Head Down’ targeting the JYJ members?“, Yunho replied, “It literally means ‘keep your head down’. Many people are thinking that we’re dissing the members but that was not our intent at all“.

He continued, “In our 1st album, there is a song called ‘Triangle‘, which has the lyrics ‘with a falling heart (I) cry bloody tears’. If we sang that at this time, people would mistake that we’re dissing (them). If we wanted to diss them, we would’ve never came out with this song“.

On the other hand, Changmin said, “I didn’t think we’d be able to dodge many questions for long. I felt we needed a time to jump over them”, giving a reason behind their decision to appear on the show.

TVXQ also revealed the story behind their stage name.

When MC Kang Ho Dong asked, “Were you all satisfied with the team name?“, Yunho said, “I didn’t like it. Our CEO thought about it for a long time and came up with ‘Dong Bang Bul Pae’. When I first heard it, I was really shocked. After that, our names were ‘Jun Muk Go‘ (A Whale Who Lives By Eating Legends), SM5, and Dream Team“.

Additionally, the two members came on the show with the concern, “We want to have more male fans“. Changmin explained, “In Cassiopeia, only 3.25% of the fans are male”.

Kang Ho Dong thought of a quick solution and made the whole cast laugh by saying, “Go to the army. If you go to the army, you can gain the hearts of 6,000,000 soldiers“.

TVXQ's Choikang Changmin revealed the reason behind his SM Entertainment audition on the variety show MBC "Golden Fishery" on March 2nd. Changmin revealed that he did not have a dream of becoming a singer like most people in the industry did.

He said, "I was playing badminton with my friends during class and a strange woman came up to me after class. She gave me a card and told me she was from SM Entertainment and wanted me to audition."

Changmin also said that his mother was partially responsible for his SM Entertainment audition as well. "My mother happily asked me 'Can I see BoA?' and I auditioned by dancing the 'soldier clap dance'. They told me they'd call me in 3 weeks but I received a call in 3 days."

The MC of the show, Kang Hodong then asked, "Did your mother invest in SM Entertainment?" to which Changmin replied, "She just really wanted to see BoA."

On this week’s episode of MBC Every1’s “Super Junior’s Foresight“, the cast members and guests Kim Bo Sung and Kim Sung Su discussed the topic of friendship and loyalty.

The men were given a mission that instructed them to call their closest friends, and test them secretly to see how strong their friendship really was. The men had to trick their friends into responding with something similar to ‘Where are you? I’ll go to you right now!‘

Kim Bo Sung called Kim Min Jong, who realized the call was a prank right away because the two were so close. Kim Sung Su called Seo Du Won and managed to get the star to “race over to him” within 30 seconds.

As for Super Junior’s representative, Kyuhyun, he called TVXQ’s Changmin. Because he was in the midst of recording the final episode for his drama, “Paradise Ranch“, Changmin had told Kyuhyun to call someone else. But upon hearing the desperation in Kyuhyun’s voice, Changmin replied, “All right, I’ll head over right now.”

What touched the studio even further was that when Kyuhyun called back to tell him that it was just a prank, Changmin was out of breath, as he had been running as fast as he could to locate Kyuhyun.

Check out the full episode at 11 PM KST on March 2nd.

While introducing a requested track, he revealed his close friendship with JYJ’s Kim Junsu. ”I once said that I wanted to duet with Kim Junsu a long time ago. I think I’ll get hit with a rock if I say I’m close with him, though,” he laughed. “All jokes aside, he’s a junior I really adore, and he likes me a lot as well. We meet often when we’re not promoting and talk about music.”

Park Hyo Shin entered the military as an active duty soldier last December and was selected to serve as an entertainment soldier in January alongside Dynamic Duo’s Choi Jae Ho, Kim Yoon Sung, Andy, Lee Dong Wook, Lee Jun Ki, and Boom.

The fresh-looking close-up picture of JYJ Kim Jaejoong during his pre-debut times has been a hot topic among netizens.

On last February 28th at one popular portal site’s bulletin board, many pre-debut pictures of Kim Jaejoong were uploaded with title “The real past photos of Kim Jaejoong”

The pictures captured young face of Kim Jaejoong posing with a peace sign in front of what seems to be PC’s webcam. Having huge eyes, straight pointed nose, and young flawless skin, he didn’t look like much different than he is now.

Yet unlike the manly image wafted from him now, the young Kim Jaejoong emitted cuter face and act especially through his hand gestures that caught many fans’ attention.

Netizens who saw the picture commented, “His youthfulness is an unchanging fact”, “Even before debut he was still a completely good-looking guy!” and “What a superior look~”

Though he lacks in experience, we wondered if he had any close friends in the entertainment industry. It was a question thrown at him with little thought, but what came back was a big catch.

"I'm close friends with JYJ's Micky Yoochun and YoungWoong Jaejoong. I see them probably about two or three times a week. I was introduced to them by a younger actor and they're the most genuine friends you'll ever meet. Whenever I came out on 'Athena', they would monitor my acting and send me text messages as they were watching that said things like, 'Hyng, this scene was slightly lacking,' or 'Hyung, your dying scene was seriously amazing.' Yoochun even threw a party for me to commemorate my role in 'Athena' after it was over. He had taken time out of his life to do this for me because I wasn't invited to the actual closing party of the drama. Sometimes, I think that he is at a higher mental maturity than I am. (Laughs) I'm indebted to him. I'm going to work hard so that he is never embarrassed to call me a friend."
