The beautiful younger sister of TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho (Jung Yunho) has appeared on TV for the first time.

On SBS’ ‘Sweet Hometown Visit, Dalgona’, U-Know Yunho’s younger sister Jung Ji Hae said, “I am a woman who was abandoned by U-Know Yunho.”

According to Jung Ji Hae, the two were at a school festival at their elementary school where she gave the introduction and U-Know Yunho sang the final solo. After completing her task, she asked U-Know Yunho, “Where should I wait for you?” to which he replied, “Go wait in your classroom.”

But U-Know Yunho didn’t show up, no matter how long Jung Ji Hae waited. Three hours had passed before he reached the classroom completely out of breath. It was that he had forgotten about his sister and gone home.

Jung Ji Hae said, “Oppa, do you know how hungry, cold and sleepy I was? Because of that incident, I started to have a fear of classrooms,” and shouted, “U-Know Yunho, who abandoned his sister. Reflect upon your actions!”

U-Know Yunho seemed embarrassed by his sister’s outburst but said, “Honestly, I’m a really forgetful person. There are times when I make plans to meet up with people, and forget about them later. I forgot about my sister when she’s the one person I should never forget about,” and showed remorse by saying, “I started coming up to Seoul when I was still attending elementary school, so I didn’t get to see Ji Hae often. She’s always been pretty and tall ever since she was little, so I should have been there to protect her from other guys but I wasn’t.”

JYJ continued their successful Asia tour of the “JYJ World Tour Concert in 2011″ at the Taipei Arena on the 23rd.

The arena was filled with over 10,000 fans and they sang along to the new songs that JYJ had prepared for the concert – showing their passion for their idols.

Having JYJ self-composed songs as the main attraction, they sang “Empty”, “Be my girl”, “Be the one.” They also sang songs from their music essay “Their Rooms” – “Mission”, “Fallen Leaves” and “I.D.S.” New songs that were especially prepared for the world concert, such as “In Heaven” and “get out” were sung. In total, the concert track list contained about 20 songs.

The stage and all the special effects were once again directed and arranged by Kim Jaejoong, which meant that the cross-styled stage used in Thailand was also in the Taiwan concert. This allowed more interaction with the fans and Jaejoong added subtitles for Taiwanese fans to overcome the language barrier. Fans shouted, “JYJ A New Beginning!” during their encore of “In Heaven” to show their gratitude for the 120 minutes of wonderful entertainment.

Taiwanese media gave copious amount of coverage on JYJ’s concert in Taiwan. They heavily focused on Jaejoong’s role in stage direction and was intrigued by Jaejoong’s idea of a “creative challenge.” In response to this, famous Taiwanese star, Kris Shen, tweeted his views of JYJ’s concert after their performance and claimed that they were his idols.

After finishing the Taiwan stop of their tour, JYJ states, “It was the happiest two hours that we’ve spent with our dearly missed Taiwanese fans. We were touched that they were able to sing along with our new songs. We felt that we were able to reach a new level of completion through this concert. We’re happy and hope that everyone will look forward to our future performances.”

JYJ left Taiwan on the afternoon of the 24th – with hundreds of fans waiting for them in departure hall of the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

JYJ will start the North American leg of their world tour with Vancouver as their stop on May 20th, New Jersey on 22nd, LA on 27th and ending at San Jose on June 3rd.

On this day during the interview the members picked JaeJoong as the member with beautiful skin. Upon this JaeJoong said “It’s embarrassing to say this with my own lips but if it wasn’t for my skin I would have been in trouble. I trust my skin and I feel like I can shout it out”

Upon this Junsu and YooChun said that “He really does have milky skin. He has no skin trouble and even if he doesn’t sleep well it doesn’t show at all.” For this, he is acknowledged as having natural beautiful skin.

To the questions about his skin secrets JaeJoong answered “Really I don’t do anything special and I don’t go to a dermatologist” while Junsu jokingly replied “Are you saying that even though you don’t do anything your skin is just natural?” causing laughter in the room.
