JYJ's Park Yoochun spoke up about his composition that has been swept up in a controversy due to its lyrics.
Park Yoochun appeared on MBN with the other JYJ members and talked truthfully about the controversy surrounding his composition 'A Song Without a Name Part.1'.
When told, "Your composition has become a hot issue," Park Yoochun gave a bashful smile and said, "I was really surprised." He continued to say, "There's a lot of talk going around about the song, but all I wanted to do was be honest about what has happened to us till now."
The song 'A Song Without a Name Part.1' is included in the music essay "THEIR ROOMS, our story' that was released by JYJ in January. The piece contains the story of TVXQ from their debut in 2004; it includes their entry into the Japanese market and all the happenings that lead up to the beginning of the trio's legal dispute with SM Entertainment.
The lyrics were swept up in controversy when netizens concluded that they sounded like they were attacking the trio's former label SM Entertainment. Examples included, "Hearing that we had finally struck gold overseas and brought in results so unimaginably astronomical, I walked into the office with a spring in my step to receive my pay. But the statement of accounts we received said we were at a deficit. Everything was listed under expenses," and "This is exactly like what our seniors said."

On the 'Women Choosing Ranks (Innocent Girl)' episode that aired on the 10th, the women showed off their idol star connections in a new corner. These women revealed pictures of themselves with the idol stars they are friends with.
The person who stood out most was Kang Yebin and her photo.

MC Lee Hwijae commented, "It's probably not Kim Jaejoong," but Kang Yebin replied, "It is him. It was Kim Jaejoong's birthday yesterday and we took this photo at his birthday party while watc hing socce r."
She was flooded by jealous questions from the other women such as, "Kang Yebin isn't even that active so how does she know him?" and "Did Kim Jaejoong say it was okay to show this photo on a tv program?" In response to this, Kang Yebin elicited more jealousy from the other women as she said, "I consider Kim Jaejoong a friend. When I told him I would show this photo on this show, he said, 'It's okay with me but I worry about you, noona.'"

A picture of JYJ’s Kim Junsu and singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong proving they are ‘soccer manias’ has been revealed.
Kim Junsu’s twin brother Kim Junho uploaded a photo of the entire MEN soccer team on his personal Twitter account on the 9th as well as the results of the match saying, “We won the match against stx today by 5:0. Junsu scored two goals, assisted one, Ji Hwan, Han Sol and Gyeong Jong each scored a goal too.”
Following this, he also recorded the team’s victory against HwaSeung FC and talked of brother Kim Junsu and Kim Hyun Joong’s active role in the win when he said, “We won the match against 5:3 against HwaSeung. Junsu scored two goals and assisted two, while Hyun Joong scored 3 goals. Though I couldn’t score a goal because I play on defense, I ran like a horse so I’m exhausted. I should go to bed now.”
The record of the team’s matches as well as the group photo is becoming a hot topic amongst netizens. They set out to find Kim Junsu and Kim Hyun Joong in the photo and said, “I think the second and third people from the left in the front row are Kim Hyun Joong and Xiah Junsu. Behind them is Junsu’s brother.”
The man the netizens pointed out in the photo as Kim Hyun Joong is wearing a hat which makes it hard to see his face. But the man’s nose reminds us of the actor. The twins’ similar facial features and comical expressions set them apart from the rest in the team.
The celebrity soccer team ‘MEN’ was created in April of 2010 with members including close friends such as Kim Bun, Song Joong Ki and Lim Joo Hwan. Kim Junsu was also made the invitational team captain of ‘MEN’.
TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho admitted that he would get nervous everytime he got on stage with Choikang Changmin because he worried he might get hit.
U-Know Yunho, who appeared on ‘Happy Together 3′ on the 10th, confessed that, “When we go on stage to perform our new song ‘Why (Keep Your Head Down)’, there’s a part in the performance where it looks like Choikang Changmin and I are fighting. Choikang Changmin would hit my chest with no mercy during the actual performance though he hadn’t done anything of the sort while we had been rehearsing. It hurt a lot.“
Choikang Changmin’s action hurt so much that U-Know Yunho had to go up to him and ask, “Changmin, please don’t hit me too hard.”
The younger member agreed to U-Know Yunho’s plea and began pushing the latter’s chest instead of hitting it. But U-Know Yunho admitted that he still feels nervous whenever he gets on stage to perform the song.
On the 6th, TVXQ appeared on the Japanese music and talk program MUSIC JAPAN on member U-Know Yunho’s birthday and talked about sea mustard soup.
On this day, when asked, “How do Korean people celebrate their birthday?” TVXQ answered, “We eat sea mustard soup.”
Choikang Changmin went into further explanation of the Korean sea mustard soup culture as he said, “My birthday is the day my mother endured the pain of childbirth to give birth to me. Because women lose a lot of blood when they give birth, they eat sea mustard soup because it’s good for their health. We eat sea mustard soup on our birthday to remember the pain that our mothers endured.”
Having heard of this, netizens left comments like, “TVXQ is so cool for teaching others about the Korean culture,” “They explained the deep meaning behind sea mustard soup…” “They’re so cool and handsome. What gods,” and “Two superior guys!”
