As the issue of JYJ fans being unhappy with JYJ's album being excluded from the Oricon prolongs, JYJ expressed their views through their management saying that “this is ‘an unfair treatment’.”

On 9th March, a representative of JYJ told Star News: "Avex is hindering JYJ's activities in Japan and yet they are selling their albums to make profits at the same time. We feel that this is unreasonable". Earlier on, JYJ’s representative has announced that with regards to JYJ’s Japan’s activities as well as their album sales, the distribution of the profits earned was not appropriate. He also added that "we feel very sorry seeing Japanese fans together with those from Korea getting disappointed and hurt once and again while waiting for JYJ. But with regards to any album release related to JYJ, (Avex) has never discussed with us, and we hope this can be fixed as soon as possible".

Recently, Oricon charts, a music-related sales ranking chart that has received a lot of trust from the public, announced that they have decided to remove JYJ's DVD 'Memories in 2010’ and album 'Thanksgiving Live In Dome Live CD' from the charts.

According to Oricon, this decision being made as Avex, being the owner of the rights to the sale of these two albums from JYJ, has cancelled their contract with the activities of the artistes. [T/N: Unfortunately, if there weren't any major changes from last year, the contract between JYJ and Avex has not expired yet. Avex, THSK’s management company in Japan, has already announced a one-sided delay for an unlimited period for JYJ's activities last year.]

Oricon explained that, as JYJ's activities in Japan has been interrupted, Avex had decided not to hold any promotional activities for the two albums, but after reviewing them, they decided to release them to revitalize the market. Due to this reason, both albums were excluded from the rankings on the chart.

Avex announced in September last year that they will stop all activities in Japan for JYJ, a three-member group that includes Hero JaeJung, Micky YuChun and Xiah JunSu.

At that point of time, Avex claimed that "as the three members of THSK are in a dispute with SM Entertainment with regards to their contracts, it seems that our contracts with JYJ will also be invalid. Because of this, we have immediately stopped all activities the three members had in Japan".

HAHA, oh I love these guys XD
Comedian Kim Kyung Jin, who was at Myeongdong Center, was mistaken by a couple of Japanese tourists as an active Hallyu celebrity JYJ member Micky Yoochun.

Appearing on KBS JOY ‘ENTERTAINERS’ CORNER‘, the ever-present personality of Kim Kyung Jin recently had a fan-hug event with Japanese fans. He was introduced as a 'Korean star', and proceeded to shout out loud with the Japanese fans, "TVXQ!"

If you took Micky on his worst day, and Kyung Jin on 
his best day, maybe - MAYBE - I could see a similarity...
It's great that Kyung Jin has such a sense of humor about it, though ^^

JYJ's "average" face has been revealed.

Recently on an online community forum, a photo of the average face of JYJ members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu was posted, garnering much attention from netizens.

The photo placed photos of the three members' faces on top of each other, to gauge their average looks. The end result is a man with soft eyes, a sharp nose and cherry lips.

Netizens who saw the photo were amused by it as they said, "Putting together all their merits has created a god!" and "If only someone like him could exist in real life."

Back in November 2010, I had the privilege of being the MC for the JYJ US TOUR. I toured with them from New York to Las Vegas and finally to Los Angeles. Along the way I was fortunate enough to meet hundreds of their wonderful fans (out of millions!) and now I’ve decided to answer some of your burning questions. Let’s begin shall we…

Q: @papersugar asks: TELL US ABOUT VEGAS!!!! Did you guys go to a strip club??
A: Wow right off the bat huh? HAHA. Sorry to disappoint you, but NO we did not go to a strip club in Vegas. We did go to the club XS at the Wynn, and had a great time. JYJ knows how to party!

Q: joojoobaby asks: Hi Shane! How different is JYJ when they’re working and when they are not? By the way, you’re awesome :)
A: Honestly there wasn’t much difference. The guys work hard but also have a great sense of humor, so even when they’re rehearsing they’re cracking jokes and having a good time. They have a really strong work ethic and were rehearsing whenever they had free time. And in the little time when they weren’t working, they worked on their hair. JK HAHA You’re awesome too!

Q: Anonymous asks: How did you get the gig? do you have super amazing ninja mafia connections?
A: Seeing how I retired my ninja mafia connection card back in 2009, I would have to say NO I currently do not have super amazing ninja mafia connections. I got the gig because I knew the right people. Or more importantly, the right people knew me. I’m friends with Rich Nam, head of Entitled Entertainment who put on the whole JYJ US TOUR. They were looking for an MC, I was the first person he thought of, I happened to be free, and I was on my way to New York.

Q: Anonymous asks: Did Jaejoong blind you when you first met him because seriously, he is ghostly pale.
A: When I first saw Jaejoong my natural instinct was to cover my neck, pour some holy water on myself, eat a clove of raw garlic, and call Jacob. Yes he was pale, but I thought it was because he had makeup on. After a few times, I realized it wasn’t the makeup…he’s just really pale. But honestly it doesn’t look that bad in person. I think he’s more photogenically pale…at least his reflection appears in mirrors.

Q: shesrightyouknowshesright asks: What is your funniest story offstage with the JYJ boys?
A: When we were in Las Vegas, we stayed at the Palms Hotel and Casino. One night, right before we went out to go eat dinner, a group of ajummas rushed JYJ in the lobby asking for autographs and pictures. Honestly, some of them looked as old as my mom. It was a very surreal moment, funny and cute in a statutory way. I guess some women just never grow up…or they really really really love JYJ - The love of JYJ knows no age limits.

Q: fangasm asks: Ohai there!! So…. all I can think of right now to ask is… was Junsu as super adorable off camera as he seems on?
A: I don’t know if I would describe him as super adorable, but maybe that’s because I’m a guy HAHA. I think more than anything it’s his husky voice that gives him that “cute” aura. He’s also very serious about learning English as he was constantly asking me about English vocabulary and grammar, which added to his “cute” aura. Make sense? Maybe it’s just something you need to experience in person.

Q: lovemelovemenot asks: So you got to know the boys…How’s like to be around them?And which member left a deep impression on you?
A: It was great being around all three of them, they’re superstars and have millions of fans across the world, but they’re very humble and just normal guys. Of the three, I connected most with Jaejoong. He definitely has that persona where he’s down to do whatever, as long as everyone’s having a good time. He’s very good at making strangers feel comfortable.

Q: 2601-ar asks: Who do you think is the best singer in JYJ (if you’ve seen their solo performances from their tvxq days)? And who has the most striking presence (personality) amongst the three. Thanks a lot!
A: Honestly I think they all sing really well, but if I had to choose one to sing a lullaby for me to sleep to, I would have to choose Micky, he kind of has that old school Korean singer voice sound. As far as striking presence, I would have to go with JaeJoong, he just oozes rock star.

Q: @jjmaii asks: Really? Want to know what you think about KimJaejoong?
A: He’s really a great guy. I’m sure you guys know his whole backstory, but when I read it, his personality made a lot of sense. He definitely lives in the moment and is extremely grounded. Like I mentioned before, he has a great gift of connecting with people and making them feel comfortable, even if he’s meeting them for the first time.

Q: @Gladys1226 asks: DID YOU GO INTO THEIR HOTEL ROOMS? opppsss :P
A: HAHA No I did not. All those tweets about showering and sleeping together, were all lies, designed to entertain the masses! Sorry to disappoint.

Q: @wota94 asks: Are the boys humble?
A: Yes they are. I was expecting them to be spoiled brats, because of all their money and fame, but to my surprise they were very grounded and humble with strong work ethics.

Q: @hope_slimzees asks: Do you have their numbers because you enjoy touching handsome boys? (ref to chinese newspaper)
A: No I do not have their numbers, we keep in touch through Twitter. And normally I don’t enjoy touching handsome boys, but for some reason in that moment, I was compelled to do so HAHA.

Q: @Kittyny12591 asks: After working with them for all three US showcases, what kind of people were JYJ? (Personalities)
A: Micky - Kept to himself a lot, but he was feeling sick the entire trip so that could have been it. Didn’t get to interact with him too much.
Junsu - Very curious about a lot of things, seems very good-hearted and good-natured.
Jaejoong - I feel like I’ve talked a lot about Jaejoong. Refer to my previous answers.

A: What kind of innocent minds are we talking about? HAHA No, they were very well-behaved and unfortunately (for you guys) did not see them do anything corrupt-worthy.

Q: @YooCups asks: What kind of person is Micky? :)
A: Unfortunately Micky was feeling sick for the majority of the trip so I didn’t interact with him as much as the others. He seemed like a really nice guy, definitely see why he’s a lot of people’s favorite member.

Q: @Krumbalina asks: When they do their next tour here will you be the MC again?
A: No I have not been contacted to MC for their next tour. Generally, concert tours do not have MCs, I think last year’s US TOUR was a little different as it was a showcase for all of their US fans. The management wanted a Korean-American MC to help interact with fans and to lead the Q&A session on stage. I think this time around, the world knows who they are, and it will be all about the performance.

All right, so that wraps up ROUND 1. I tried to answer as many questions as I could, but keep asking questions through my tumblr and my twitter @shaneyoon (please do not repeat questions that I’ve already answered) I’ll post up ROUND 2 sometime later this week. Thanks!
Good Times @@

He aroused laughter as he said, "I found out about that and I was highly anticipating the first day of filming the drama because of it. But I didn't recognize him even though he was standing right next to me."

Kim Kap Soo didn't hide his praise for Park Yoochun as he said, "Though I thought of him only as a singer at first, his acting was more natural than I expected it to be. I wish to work with Yoochun on my next production if possible." He added, "Though he's a kid who is extremely shy and quite reserved, he's kind, hardworking and polite unlike most kids these days."

Park Yoochun’s power cannot be underestimated.

Aired last year, the KBS Drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” message board had reached 401,000 comments on 20 March. On 18 March viewer Ms.Sohn Sook Ja posted “The scholar has given up his position,” becoming the main character in the 400,000th post. To this, loyal fans of “SungKyunKwan Scandal” wrote “Congratulations, Scholar Sook Ja”, “Senior Sohn, congratulations on the 400,000th post” and other comments.

The hit series, SBS’s “Secret Garden,” whose viewership ratings had exceeded 30% this year, had approximately 44,000 comments on its message board. But the popularity of Park Yoochun and the others, as well as the passionate response is something worth considering as well. Although “SungKyunKwan Scandal’s” ratings had stopped at an average of 12.8% (AGB Nielsen), but the audience loyalty is higher among its followers as compared to other dramas.

The audience, following the terms used in SungKyunKwan, address each other according to hierarchy using “Scholar” and “Senior,” to create an interesting atmosphere of “life at SungKyunKwan.” Although “SungKyunKwan Scandal” had ended a long while ago, but in the “Love Room” of the “SungKyunKwan Scandal” Message Board, you can still see the passion for “SungKyunKwan Scandal.”

KBS Drama Executive Producer Lee Kang Hyun said, “ Of all the shows produced by KBS last year, “SungKyunKwan Scandal” received the most passionate response from the audience. “Baker King Tak Goo” and “The Slave Hunters” received high viewership ratings, and were all successful dramas.

Park Yoochun is scheduled to participate in the MBC Monday-Tuesday Mini Series “Goodbye Miss Ripley.”

There are alot of talks about Xiah Junsu taking part in musicial ‘Tears of Heaven’, is there any pressure for you to act in the same character as him?

“There wasn’t any pressure. Because the viewers have different view points of me and Junsu Hyung-Nim is what I think.

What kind of person is Xiah Junsu like since you have seen him up-closed?

“He’s really like a easy-to-get-along elder brother from the same neighbour. Although he’s 2 years older than me, he takes good care of me.”

You have a character that likes to win, so do you find that Xiah Junsu is your rival in terms of ticketing power and awareness?

“Nothing of that sort. In comparision to me, Junsu Hyung-Nim has started out his activities from when he was young and he has a lot of experience. I don’t have much experience as compared to him and I don’t have much on stage experience. I still have a long way to go in future.”
