The show that the Chinese fans have been waiting for, the “JYJ World Tour Concert in 2011″ has finally come to Beijing. Hailed as a “Creative Challenge”, the World Tour Concert was executed perfectly in Thailand on 2 & 3 April, and this exciting feast of sight and sound will be brought to Beijing on 7 May.

As there will be no extension of the stage, but wanting to ensure that all fans will be able to enjoy the exciting performance, Director Kim Jaejoong has been in discussions with the technical staff that had visited the location beforehand, to make the appropriate changes based on the specifications of Capital Indoor Stadium. Also, to ensure that fans sitting at the balcony seats will be able to get a clear view of the three members, additional high-definition projectors will be added to both sides of the stage, as well as a LED screen measuring over 200 square meters to be placed at the centerstage. There will be a total of 9 lifts on the stage, and no expense has been spared for lighting, movable screens and other special effects equipment, for the sake of creating the best visual effects and presenting an unbeatable audio-visual experience.

As the overall director for the World Tour, Kim Jaejoong will be headed to Beijing earlier to participate in the entire stage production. They will also be trying their best to include Chinese elements, making this remarkable stage one to look out for.

The organizer expressed that there had been no plans made for a concert in China during the initial announcement of this first JYJ World Tour, but they quickly contacted the Korean management and after much effort managed to secure this one an only concert (in China.) The members of JYJ are also looking forward to this trip to China, and have expressed that they will present a most exciting stage for their Chinese fans, so that every attending fan will be able to bring home an unforgettable memory.

omg Total dorkfest going on right now X)
(Jaejoong, 1:14pm KST) How happy I am!

(Jaejoong, 1:28pm KST) They get along so well that it’s becoming a problem!

Lol John Egg’s got Jaejoong in the palm of his hand!!
(John, 1:44pm KST) @mjjeje When I get to the US, I’m going to upload 10,000 photos of you! All those secret photos kekeke Heaven help the egg!!! hahaha
(Jaejoong, 1:49pm KST) @elbowyeish I should be nice to you then! ^^

…. *hugs Kim Jaejoong*
(Jaejoong, 8:40pm KST) I used to think that the sky and earth were near each other. So I used to think that, no matter where I was, the people within my heart were never that far from me because we were living under the same sky and walking on the same earth. I wasn’t even lonely. For the first time, for some odd reason, I find myself feeling lonesome, as if I am watching my shadow getting uncontrollably farther away from me with the setting sun.

(Jaejoong, 8:40pm KST) World, tell me that it isn’t true.

(Jaejoong, 8:48pm KST) But because there is the light of the singing sun, I tell myself over and over again, “I’m okay. I’m okay.” Though I can’t see it, I can hear it. And I can feel it. We understand and love each other.

Fukutaro sends his love from Japan :)
(Fukutaro, 8.53pm KST) @mjjeje Don’t catch a cold!!
(Jaejoong, 9.03pm KST) @fuku0501 Thank you for everything, for worrying about me. I want to meet you.
(Fukutaro, 9.07pm KST) @mjjeje Wait for me! Because I’ll catch up with you soon (Laughs) Promise.

Jaejoong agrees with some social commentary ^^
(Hong Seok Cheon, 12:32am KST) Oh my god, Shilla Hotel. I find myself speechless. Hm, have you always been an inflexible gang? Are you not the hotel that we take pride in as Korea’s best hotel? But I must say that Mr. Lee Bujin’s personal apology was an appropriate act. As a person who always worries that the staff, who are out in the restaurant and serving the customers, might make a mistake, I tend to think constantly about apologies and measures to take after an incident.
(Jaejoong, 10:29pm KST) @Tonyhong1004 I totally agree~~^

TVXQ’s Yunho confessed that he would like to get married at the age of 32.

While guesting on tvN’s “Taxi“, Yunho stated, “If I were to date, I’d like to keep it private. I also want to get married at 32.”

Fellow member Changmin added, “I’d like for my partner to not be over the age of 30.” When MC Lee Young Ja asked why, Changmin laughed as he replied, “Because I think it’ll be difficult to have children.”

Male group JYJ member, Park Yoochun, took part in a solo CF (commercial film).

Not long ago, a famous Korean food brand revealed that Park Yoochun was the star of their new ice tea CF on their official website. In this official CF release, Park Yoochun appears as a school teacher and he calls his mother. He complains, "The kids nowadays are so scary. I want to change schools. Mom, you graduated from an all-girls high school, right?" The complaining Yoochun was discovered by another teacher, who questioned, "You want to quit?" Yoochun, however, changes his story completely and quickly answers, "No, I really like it here!" This abrupt change is astoundingly funny.

Netizens that have watched the CF left comments such as "I'm so happy that I get to see Yoochun on TV!" and "It'd be great to have a teacher like this ~"

On the other hand, the name "Tio" is an amalgamation of the word, tea, and the exclamation, Oh! - describing the feeling that you get when drinking tasty tea.

JaeJoong: On 7th of May we will be holding JYJ's solo concert in BeiJing. Beijing is the place that we have always visited ever since our debut. And we have also heard that many fans are waiting for us there.

JaeJoong: Yoochun, you should say something too.

Yoochun: I'll add on that because this performance is directed by our experienced director, Jaejoong hyung so we can understand the fans and our reactions more. This stage is created for everyone, everyone would be even happier.

“I’ve come to learn that all problems stem from not making myself grow but rather being satisfied, saying “this much, should be okay.”

Group JYJ’s Kim Junsu, who is broadening his domain from idol star into a musical actor, opened up his heart in the interview with Focus Shinmum on the 11th, saying “I, too, am a human being before I am a singer.” He has conquered the wounds he endured through the separation process with TVXQ last year by immersing himself into the Musical “Mozart.” Following that, through the musical “Tears of Heaven,” he flowered once more as a musical actor “Kim Junsu.” He said: “I became a much stronger, mature man.” Many people know him as born on January 1 of 1987, but in truth he is born on the year of the Tiger, on December 15th of 1986, as a twin (his older brother is Zuno). He debuted as TVXQ when he was a 2nd year student in high school and now, he’s become a young man of 25.

“While singing the “I needed to learn” in the first scene of the 2nd act of Tears of Heaven, I felt moved at the thought that ‘such is life.’ A situation in which one needs to kill another person in order for myself to live, in order to live and to meet a person that I love, is not something that only happens in war.”

To Kim Junsu, musical is a teacher that teaches life. “Sadder than the fact that it is a society of competition in which one must fight with the other to win is the (fact that we have) circumstances in which one must learn how to push others down in order to survive with those methods.”

Junsu thought of the “good sportsmanship” (T/N: literally, “competition in good faith”) as a method to cure the social conditions like today that goads one to become angry and lose his temper.

“I wish that in our society will operate with the rule in which even if one loses, if the other person has such great qualities that I can accept it, that one humbly accepts the results.”

Kim Junsu’s principle (T/N: This is the same word that is used by Jaejoong when he describes his tattoo on his chest) is to try his best. (Junsu says that) it is because if he does so, even if it does not work out, he will be able to begin something new. When (the newspaper) asked whether he has had anything that he tried but would not work out, he said it was studying.

“In particular, math—as we finished the quadratic formula and moved on to trigonometry, I said: ‘Studying is something that even if one tries it just won’t work.’ (laugh)”

Kim Junsu is currently challenging himself at Popera. Time to time he is taking voice lessons (T/N: the article uses the word 성악 which is traditionally used to denote the kind of singing often done by opera actors). The transformation into a Popera singer from an idol dance singer is, to Junsu, as fervent as the task (T/N: literally, “homework”) that has been thrown on his twenties.

“The sensitivities that a song that is flavored by the (opera) voice is going to be different.”

(Junsu said that) in his thirties, he wishes to be a musician who writes songs. He said that he wants to be a composer who brings the thought of ‘I want to sing Kim Junsu’s song” when he is facing a certain situation.”

In Musical “Mozart” there is a song called “Golden Star.” It is—that you should break out of the tall walls of the castle and find the dream in the wide world and achieve it. In musicals, there are (naturally) parts which overlap with the lives of the audiences themselves and make them reflect upon themselves and bring them to tears. I will always protect you by your side, as an actor who, through musicals, comfort your lives and give you courage.”

Kim Junsu said that he wanted to become a singer who sings life, a musician who arouses memories and inspiration.

According to JYJ's official Japanese website, JYJ will be holding a special concert at Saitama Super Arena on June 7th. This concert is a charity concert and is being held for the victims of the March 11th earthquake in Japan. The earthquake has left thousands of people homeless and at least 21,000 people missing or dead.

JYJ has been one of the leading Korean artists giving a helping hand to the people of Japan. After leaving a heartfelt message to their fans in Japan, it was revealed that JYJ had donated 600 million won to World Vision for emergency relief to the people in Sendai and Fukushima. In addition, JYJ will be spreading the word about the Japan disaster during their second world tour. Not only are they lending support, they will be encouraging others to donate to the Japan relief fund.

"We don't know where to begin but there are many Japanese victims who are suffering from fear and grief due to the unexpected disaster. Among them are our precious fans which makes us even sadder. JYJ is with you in this. We would like to be of some help and hope to meet you all soon."

Currently, Japan has declared a level 7 nuclear disaster, the highest level. Previously, the country had been on level 5 nuclear disaster. Level 7 equals to "major release of radioactive material with widespread health and environmental effects requiring implementation of planned and extended countermeasures."

Tsunami survivors, villagers, rescue workers, and volunteers have also dug out any photos that they could find in the tsunami and earthquake stricken areas. A gallery has been set up for all photos and albums found for survivors to go through and claim them as they retain many memories from the past before the disaster.

Singer IU shows off a ‘3-level expression’ after her ‘3-level octave’, impressing TVXQ’s Max Changmin.

In the April 10 broadcast of SBS ‘Heroes’, the cast took wedding pictures with TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin.

During the broadcast, MC Noh Hong Chul asked Max Changmin before the actual wedding photoshoot, “Which Heroes member do you most want to complete this photoshoot with?” and upon hearing IU’s name, Changmin gave a surprised expression, sending a secret signal to Yunho at the same time. Although Changmin expressed that “I was only shocked (upon hearing her name)”, one could see his inner feelings when he exchanged glances with IU.

The cast and TVXQ had to look into each other’s eyes as part of the process of choosing their partners (for the photoshoot). Max Changmin was composed when he looked into the eyes of Seo In Young, Kahi and Shin Bong Sun, but shyly lowered his head in front of IU. IU sent a ‘3-level expression’ to Changmin using her bright eyes, causing Changmin to be unable to look her in the eye. He finally looked down shyly, arousing laughter from everyone.
