SBS Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Paradise Meadow’ ended on the 15th drenched in the smell of spring.

‘Paradise Meadow’ garnered great interest even before its airing as it was the debut drama of TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin that was edited and completed before it was aired. When its lid finally opened, it received a constant stream of love from netizens throughout the entire series that seemed to match the anticipation that came before the airing date. Though it was not classified as a ‘hit’ because its viewer ratings jumped around 10%, it received a steady support from viewers of all ages.

◇Excess drama isn’t necessary to succeed.. A good-natured drama’s success story

The biggest accomplishment by ‘Paradise Meadow’ was its ability to draw viewers in and maintain high popularity regardless of the fact that it did not contain any unnecessary drama. Though drama series with too much drama are criticized heavily, such drama acts like ‘insurance’ and ensures broadcasting companies high viewer ratings. On the other hand, ‘good-natured’ dramas have always been greeted with a warm reception but never have they really succeeded in terms of viewer ratings.

Though ‘Paradise Meadow’ didn’t rake in large viewer ratings, it received a surprisingly high interest from viewers, taking into consideration the difficulties that came with the time slot it was in (8:50pm).

‘Paradise Meadow’ is the story of two people who marry at a young age, divorce and meet again six years later on Jeju Island, only to fight, make up and learn to love again. It didn’t contain any birth secrets, acts of adultery or over-dramatic twists that seem to flood most dramas these days. It wasn’t bubbly and surprising like a soft drink; instead, it was warm, light and fresh like healthy food you would never get sick of.

◇The ‘majesty’ of a drama 100% edited and completed in advance

‘Paradise Meadow’, which was SBS’ last 9 o’clock Monday-Tuesday drama, became a hot topic before it aired due to the fact that it was edited and completed before its first airing date.

The shooting took place over a period of six months from December 17th, 2009 till May 26th of last year, and was completed over another six month period. Thanks to this hard work, Jeju Island’s beautiful landscape was properly appreciated and the plot, editing, background music and transitions between scenes flowed as smooth as running water.

It is a stark contrast with recent dramas such as ‘Secret Garden’ and ‘Sign’, that seemed to chase a hastily written script every episode and that ended up making a gross error. Even the full stop that ended the drama was perfect.

Female lead Lee Yeon Hee stated in an interview with AsiaE Sports Today that, “Honestly, I worried that people would say bad things about the drama. Other dramas are able to communicate and take into account the opinions of the viewers, but we couldn’t change anything because we had already filmed and completed everything,” and “But the way the drama was completed taught me once more of the importance of creating a drama that is of a high quality, even if it takes a while to complete.”

The director of ‘Paradise Meadow’, a well-made romantic drama, was none other than PD Kim Cheol Gyu of ‘Daemul’. He was able to showcase his unique style and was applauded for his talents of drawing the viewers deeper into the plot every episode.

◇From major to minor character.. ‘A rediscovery of the actors’

If we were to choose the beneficiaries of ‘Paradise Meadow’, it would have to be Shim Changmin (Choikang Changmin) and Lee Yeon Hee. Shim Changmin was able to earn the title of ‘actor’ through this drama and Lee Yeon Hee was able to silence all controversies surrounding her acting. They were showered in praise by viewers for their diverse emotions, from the bright and free moments to the sad and earnest approaches.

Joo Sang Wook, who rose to fame in the drama ‘Giant’, was able to change his image into a ‘Daddy Long-Legs’ man and Lim Soo Hyang, who appeared as Lee Yeon Hee’s sister, captured the attention of many in the industry for her change in character, that was completely different from her previous one in ‘New Tales of Gisaeng’.

Vocal trainer Jung Wonsun is the vocal trainer of most successful idols these days.

During a "Taxi Talkshow" on tvN, vocal trainer Jung Wonsun appeared as a guest along another vocal trainer Park Sujoo. Jung Wonsun mentioned that he is the vocal trainer of some names such as male group TVXQ, Super Junior, and Taeyeon from girl group SNSD.

He reflected on his memories of being a vocal trainer during the pre-debut days of several popular idol group members. “Super Junior Leeteuk and Shindong were the naughty ones,” he confessed. “Whenever we started practicing, Leeteuk had a habit to go to the restroom. Shindong loved to joke around when they were supposed to sing a sad song, making the practice even more difficult.”

In the other hand, he praised SNSD’s Taeyeon, “When I first met Taeyeon, she was only a 7th grader. She had her lesson with me once a week, but her ability to concentrate was already superior compared to her peers of the same age. While training, you wouldn’t see the image of a kid in her eyes. I always believe that this child will become something one day.”

Furthermore, Jung Wonsun revealed his first impression of TVXQ members, “I’d noticed that they’d been Lee Soo Man’s favorite, but the members themselves had this kind of hunger (of practicing) that couldn’t be cut off. There was fighting spirit in their eyes," recalling the unforgettable experience.

Super Junior's Leeteuk and Yesung recently discussed TVXQ's Yunho on March 21st during a recording session of Sukira. After playing TVXQ's "Why (Keep Your Head Down)" on the radio, Leeteuk remarked, "That was TVXQ’s 'Why?', requested by a fanboy." Yesung replied, "Yes, that's a first."

According to Leeteuk, "The fanboy said he really likes Yunho... actually, Yunho’s nickname is 'The King of the Stage.'" He continued, "Yunho's vocal range is long and wide, so it's really pleasant to listen to, even though I’m a man."

Yesung pointed out that "he's really different on and off stage." Leeteuk then imitated Yunho's voice, "Hyung. Hyung." The two members of Super Junior came in agreement that Yunho, who is younger than both of them, is very cute.

Yesung recalled a memory from their trainee days. "When we were trainees, we shared a house and Yunho hid his milk. He was really upset when I found and drank the milk."

The “SM TOWN LIVE in Tokyo Special Edition” concert has been postponed due to the disasters which struck Japan on March 11th.

The concerts were supposed to be held on April 9th and 10th, but it was agreed that holding the event would not be particularly appropriate during this time.

SM Entertainment stated that as soon as they find a suitable alternative date, they would announce them for their fans. It’s safe to assume that the concert-goers, who are likely disappointed at the news, are also feeling a little relieved, as it would be difficult to celebrate and have fun during this difficult time.

The SM family extended their prayers for the victims, and expressed hope that Japan would be able recover quickly.

- JYJ World Tour in Thailand was first set the budget at 50 million Baht. Now the budget is increased to 60 million.

- Thailand will be the first location in their world tour and will always be. It’s their norm. They say they love Thailand.

- Because Thailand will be the first stop, the format of the whole world tour will be done here. That’s why JJ’s flying here personally to take care of the production details.

- The Thai organizer also asked them to have Thailand to be their first stop in their world tour since they’ve contacted them last year.

- Yesterday JJ went to the venue, Impact Arena to feel the presence of the arena, like where will be the stage? Where will the fans be? The height of the stage?

- JJ concerns a lot about his fans and audiences.

- The stage is not set yet (Currently, the arena floor is covered with ice from Disney on Ice show, and it’s in the process of melting the ice). Though the stage is not yet set, JJ still went to the venue.

- After see the venue, he asked for additional equipments and concert supplies, like jumping machine, fireworks, and increase the stage height.

- The stage will have projector underneath it and JJ asked to make the stage higher which add more cost (XD)

- The jumping machine have to be imported which caused 1 million Baht. (There’s no such jumping machine in Thailand, we only have a normal stage lift.)

- The stage firework also have to be imported because we also don’t have that type of firework here. (I’m not sure how it’s special because the DJ has interrupted, but what I caught is that it might be more safe.) And yes.. add more costs 555

- Total concert time will be around two hours.

- One of the DJ asked whether JYJ fees are higher than 10 million. Mr. Kung, the organizer answers… it’s wayyy higher than that.

- The organizer is now negotiating for higher numbers of fans in fan meeting, might be around 300 fans (used to be 250).

- The organizer decided to hold JYJ concert because JYJ are highly demanded, having large fanbase, and extremely popular.

- The social networks help the organizer to keep in touch with fans and fast feedback. They will do their best.

Note: There are 2 DJ. One of them is a good friend with the organizer, actually he’s also one of the investor, that why he kept asking about the costs.

Another DJ knows extremely well about Korean artist fan club culture. He seems to know a lot about JYJ.
