SM Entertainment has decided to modify the lyrics to TVXQ’s newest song, “Before U Go” in order to pass the rigid broadcast standards upheld by MBC. The song is the title track for TVXQ’s repackaged “Keep Your Head Down” album.

It’s only been a couple of days since TVXQ released their new song, but fans already noticed a change in the lyrics during its premiere broadcast through MBC Radio. The original lyrics, “I was a stupid fool who couldn’t even take care of you“, was modified to “I was stupid and couldn’t even take care of you.”

SM Entertainment made an official clarification on this matter on March 18th, as they stated, “MBC’s Radio and TV were considering rejecting the song for broadcast because of the lyrics. This is why we changed ’stupid fool’ to just ’stupid’.”

Though MBC held some concerns about the lyrics, it’s said that SBS and KBS had no problems with them at all, and thus allowed the song to pass their standards test.

This change will mean that TVXQ will have to sing the modified version of the song on MBC’s “Music Core“, while they sing the original version on KBS’s “Music Bank” and SBS’s “Inkigayo“.

All three members are unique; they were special!

The group JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Kim Junsu, Park Yoochun) were different. On the 12th, JYJ held a fanmeeting at Jamsil stadium where more than 7,000 fans gathered and spent three hours together. This fan meeting, which was created for the sake of exchanging laughter and emotions with the fans, JYJ also spent more than 100 million won from their own expenses.

JYJ began their fan meeting with words of the unfortunate earthquake that has occurred in north eastern Japan, and ended by singing with their encore with a song they released recently. As the fan meeting was coming to an end, Kim Junsu also showed his tears to the fans cheers.

We are one!

Their looks are different and so are their voices. But when these three sing together they are able to create heavenly harmonies. However, it wasn’t just the three of them. Matching the words of JYJ with hand motions, all the fans there (exceeding 7,000) became one.

During the fan meeting, JYJ also called their manager on stage and spent a harmonious time together. From their relentless schedule to their every meal, the manger bears these responsibilities of the celebrity, so being able to see this unreserved relationship caused the fans to clap ceaselessly.

Imitate us!

While Park Yoochun was singing, he raised two fingers to his head as if to ask for their applause, immediately all the fans began to cheer. Not wanting to lose to this, Kim Jaejoong raised his right hand up high to which the fans immediately stood up from their chairs and began to chant JYJ. To this Kim Junsu also retaliated with his nimble feet.

It really truly is so!

When they are singing or dancing, these three are more concentrated than anyone else. But when they are playing and having fun with games, they really are mischievous boys.

What’s the brothers’ secrets?

The suprising guest on this day was Park Yoochun’s brother Park Yoohwan. Park Yoohwan, who is acting in the MBC drama “Sparkling Sparkling”, exposed various secrets of his brother causing Park Yoochun to become flustered.

We love you!

All the fans that had gathered for 3 hours cried and laughed with JYJ. Waving placards that said things such as, “Jaejoong believe in us!”, “Park Yoochun thank you for coming to see us!” and “Our star of Asia- Kim Junsu!”, the fans were able to speak words from their hearts.

The lovers in the drama “Paradise Ranch” Shim Changmin and Lee Yeon Hee have met once again.

They’ve transformed into a “rock couple”, rather than the sweet and cute image in the drama, they sprinkled their chic and fashionable appeal.

Lee Yeon Hee coordinated and combined clothes such as mini t-shirts showing off her navel with glittering pants, and mini dresses with a balloon skirt showing off her long slender legs, she has daringly challenged the exposure.

Changmin wore tough Riders jackets and classic tuxedo suits looking nicely dressed, and you can feel the fashion sense that he seems to be born with.

Dong Bang Shin Gi’s Shim Changmin and Lee Yeon Hee spoke about their sentiments for the end of their SBS drama “Paradise Ranch”. In the afternoon of March 15th, commemorative events took place at the SBS building in Seoul for the end of “Paradise Ranch”.

Changmin said, “During both the filming and then the airing of the drama, this was my first time taking part in a drama so all of these things were new to me. I am grateful to all the people who gave me this chance to experience something new. This drama has been airing for a duration of two months and now it’s ending. I feel relieved but on the other hand reluctant. Thank you for giving us your love. These two months were really fun and I was very happy.” Lee Yeon Hee said, “Today is the airing of the last episode of “Paradise Ranch”, and I am very grateful that all the donations are being used for a good cause. I want to thank all the fans who loved us until the very end.

On the other hand as “Paradise Ranch” reaches its final episode, the production staff, Lee Yeon Hee, Shim Changmin, SM Entertainment, and Sanhwa Networks all gathered and collected donations in order to help children in third world countries, and these donations were given to deliver the meaning of the “reality of love” and other events were also held.

Presents were also prepared for the fans by Changmin and Yeon Hee. Through the lottery, fans would get the lucky chance to win and be able to watch the final “Paradise Ranch” episode together and other presents. As Changmin looked towards the final airing, he spent an enjoyable time at this event.

Male group JYJ show off their heartthrob charm as smart model students.

A clothing brand that chose JYJ as its home model back in January released undisclosed pictures of their spring line print advertisement featuring JYJ.

In those pictures JYJ members sported T-shirts, baseball jumpers, and more, the mix and match outfits showed off casual style yet exceptional fashion sense. The rolled up pants and Oxford embossed seems to be the highlighted part of its intellectual student charm.

Netizens who saw the pictures responded, “I want to get JYJ clothes.” and “They can wear any kind of clothes and still look stunning.”

JYJ-Side, On the Fraud-Claim of Last Year’s Concerts, Takes Strong Legal Action

C-JeS Entertainment, which is in charge of JYJ’s management, has decided to take strong legal action against the relaying of one-sided claims that argue that [Park] has suffered damages due to fraud relating to the last year’s American Showcases.

H Dream (T/N: Park’s company), which sued arguing that it was defrauded by Kim XX who claimed to be a subcontractor for the JYJ’s American tour, included/mentioned JYJ and C-JeS in its complaint that it distributed to the media outlets. Against this, C-JeS plans to take strong legal action.

The complaint that H Dream distributed to media outlets only provides that it invested in Kim XX. There are no specific information that relate to C-JeS Entertainment or Warner Music. There are only unilateral speculations. Therefore, it is beyond doubt and is obvious that the above fails to establish fraud (for C-JeS). This action is of course a False Claim against Innocent Parties, and also is a Defamation through publishing upon false facts. Therefore, C-JeS has decided to counter this strictly, through law.

Law Firm Sejong’s attorney Lim Zhang Hyuk, who is representing C-JeS, said: “There always has been actions like this one (by H Dream/Park) which used the fact that entertainers are reluctant to become a subject of articles in unpleasant contexts (T/N: to get money or other benefits from the entertainers). JYJ has so far already received unfair requests many times and have endured them. But this instant case is one that seriously overstep the limits of what can be endured, and so C-JeS decided to take strong legal action.” The attorney further said: “Cases such as this one is a chronic harm suffered by not just JYJ but other entertainers. [We] request that fans and the media cooperate (in their dealings) so that cases like this one do not happen again.”

Furthermore, C-JeS Entertainment Director Paek Chang Ju said: “The one who suffered financial and psychological harm due to the inexperience of the promotional agency of the American Tours was us. JYJ, because they made a promise with the fans, did not ask (the promotional agency) for blame but paid themselves all additional costs to complete the concerts. Despite this, [Park and H Dream] distributed to the media a complaint that had nothing to do with us. For this, we are taking strong legal action.”

Hey readers! Check out this review by FANBOY and FANGIRL:




Fangirl:

When I saw the teaser for "Before U Go", I let loose a fangirl squeal like you would not believe. (I think this tumblr post describes it better than I could express in words here.)

However the music video didn't thrill me as much as I hoped it would. I was hoping for something on the scale of Zhangliyin's "Timeless" or the TRAX's "초우"- music videos so huge and epic, they come in parts. Instead, SM delivered a five minute long (or should I say short?) mini movie. In order to pack it all in, they made the cuts very quick, and a lot of emotional impact is lost. For instance at 2:50, Yunho - hobbled on crutches - realizes that it was his friend Choi Jong Yoon who shot him. Emotional impact? Zip. You hardly have time to even realize what has happened.

SM could have drawn this out, releasing part 1 and driving fans into a frenzy as they anticipated part 2. The question is, why didn't they? They clearly had the footage to pull it off. And what about Go Ara's character? The romance that was hinted at in the teaser (Ara setting a table for two) isn't even touched on in the MV.

On the plus side, Yunho and Changmin look absolutely fantastic. I'm loving the suits and leather jackets. Yunho looks like such a BAMF taking out those evil cronies, it's almost enough to send me into peals of fangirl squeals again. (Did you all catch the flow-mo shot at 4:07?). Here's hoping we get to see more of that when Poseidon finally airs.

I think I ought to mention the cinematography too. How about that gorgeous shot of Jong Yoon in his assassin gear reflected in the urban pane of windows? Or that damp rooftop with a foggy cityscape in the background? Pretty gorgeous stuff.

Alrighty, Fanboy, what was your take on the music video?

Fanboy:

Like Fangirl, I had my own my sort of squeal when I saw the teaser, but for different reasons. I was mainly excited at the fact that SM was going to release a story-based music video. Do you know how rare that is for them?! I was like, "Oh my god, now they're going to start competing with YG on epic story MVs!" Hmm... well... sadly, that wasn't really the case.

For some reason, I feel like this video got a lot cut from it on the editing floor and was rushed to premiere just so Cassies could get their TVXQ fix. Actually, I personally believe that SM will release an extended version of this MV later on so we can get understand the full story. So much seemed to be cut that it was sort of difficult to grasp, and then boom, it was over. They should have had a longer intro to help set the background story, and then have a break in the song to further the story with another cut scene, etc.

Other than that, I did actually like the MV. But for me to love it, I need to also love the song. Unfortunately, the song just does not excite me. Sigh. This was all very "Hot Times" reminiscent, and I didn't like that song either (or the MV). Side note: it seems that Apple is doing product placement in K-Pop now too. Notice the in-your-face promotion of the iPhone? *rolls eyes*

I'm no fashion expert here, but I found Changmin's feather-collared outfit to be so out of place. This MV was all serious and has the boys working in crime. Why on earth would Max be running around in ethereal attire like that?! And, I'm just not feeling Yunho's bowl cut. Spike it or something. He looks so plain. But then again, it is sort of appropriate for the business.

Now on to my favorite parts! Oh man, the action! I about fell out of my chair when I saw HoMin showcase their action star skills. If you guys like to know, there are two things I'm a sucker for: Hardcore action and hardcore dancing. So yeah, this was a total win. In the end, I have decided that Yunho and Changmin need to be cast for Ninja Assassin 2: Rain, U-Know, and Max Kick Ass. I smell a summer blockbuster smash!

What did you think of the music video?
