"Thank you.

My mother is here to watch me right now, and I really want to thank her for coming.

It was hard for us to grab chances like this, and we didn't have that many chances to choose from in the first place.
So I'm so happy that I was able to take part in such a great production and receive so much love from people.

Because I've been met with so much love, I hope I'll be presented with many more great opportunities in the future. I'll take those opportunities and continue to work harder.

I want to stay friends with all the people I worked with on 'SungKyunKwan Scandal'.

Thank you so much. I'll work harder. Thank you."

I think the pain has made you all stronger like it has for JYJ.
With the love you've given us, I will continue to work harder.

I'm really thankful. Thank you.

“U-Know Yunho Oppa is the only ‘Oppa’ for me.”

Jin Ji Hui(12), who is debuting in the movie industry with the film ‘Whip’, showed her strong affection for TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho(25), who she appears on SBS TV’s ‘Kim Yuna’s Kiss and Cry’ with.

Jin Ji Hui showed off her daring nature as she said, “Age doesn’t matter to me. I call all guys ‘Uncle’ and I call all girls ‘Unnie’,” and “I told myself that I would make an exception to handsome, single men and call them ‘Oppa’, but the only person I’ve made that exception for, till now, is U-Know Yunho.” This means that Choi Daniel(25), who acted as her uncle in ‘High Kick Through the Roof’, falls under the category of ‘Uncle’ as well.

There is one more ‘Oppa’ in her life though and he is none other than Yoon Shi Yoon(25), who acted as her older brother in ‘High Kick Through the Roof’. Ironically, U-Know Yunho, Yoon Shi Yoon and Choi Daniel were all born in 1986.

“Calling Yoon Shi Yoon ‘Oppa’ came naturally because he played the role of my older brother in our drama. But there is a difference between Yoon Shi Yoon’s ‘Oppa’ and U-Know Yunho’s ‘Oppa’.

Jin Ji Hui began acting at the age of four in 2003 in the KBS daily drama ‘Yellow Handkerchief’ and rose to fame as the greedy and mischievous ‘Haeri’ in the 2009 MBC TV sitcom ‘High Kick Through the Roof’.

We asked Jung Chanwoo, who now has over 50,000 followers, to pick a special connection that he has.

In reply, Jung Chanwoo talked about Kim Junsu, who he recently followed and was followed back by.

May 19th was buzzing with KBS’ TV appearance restrictions on JYJ, and Kim Junsu soothed his fans worried by tweeting, “I woke up this morning and saw that some articles have been released on this and that..! Let’s just be a little stronger^^ Okay!? Don’t be upset.. because they’ll eventually recognize us and believe in us^^ Until then, as long as we don’t let go of the thread that connects us to each other, we’ll be happy~ I’m always thankful!”

Following this, Jung Chanwoo followed the idol star on Twitter and left him a message of support that read, “Be strong, Junsu. It’s Cultwo’s Chanwoo hyung. Hwaiting.” Kim Junsu replied by following him back.

Jung Chanwoo laughed and said, “Though I know many stars on Twitter, I end up talking to my fans more. I’m happy that I’ve become Twitter friends with Kim Junsu, but I’m a little sad because I’m sure my tweets get buried under all the tweets he receives from fans.

It is ironic that Park Yoochun will be appearing in MBC’s drama ‘Miss Ripley’ though he is being barred from appearing on MBC’s variety programs at the same time. Add on the controversy surrounding KBS’s restrictions on JYJ’s televised appearances and one can easily conclude that there are no Korean idols swept up in as much controversy and rumors as JYJ are.

Not a single music program will put JYJ on their stage and though they say that there are no restrictions placed on the group, there isn’t a single broadcasting company that is willing to allow them to appear on its shows.

There isn’t a single piece of physical evidence that shows that SM Entertainment, JYJ’s former agency, is applying external pressure on the broadcasting industry. It is also true that it would be hard for broadcasting companies to place JYJ on stage without a hint of hesitation as the group is currently swept up in controversy.

But some say that JYJ have brought forth a new type of idol groups. Contrary to other idols who place importance upon good looks and beauty, JYJ have grounded vocal talent as their foundation and are advancing as they have found the perfect balance between songs and their performances. Also, as the musical talents of each member are extraordinary, they are showcasing their talents by composing and writing lyrics while Kim Jaejoong was even chosen to direct JYJ’s world tour. Nowadays, they are being recognized, not as idol singers, but as true artistes.

Recently, Kim Junsu’s version of ‘That Man’ became a hot topic due to the unique color that only Kim Junsu has, which differentiated him from the original singer Baek Ji Young and actor Hyun Bin from ‘Secret Garden’, regardless of the fact that he was using the instrumental from a karaoke machine.

But strangely, we can’t see these singers, some of Korea’s most vocally talented idols, on music programs and the only people who are hurt by this are the viewers. The viewers believe that JYJ should at least be given the chance to compete on music programs.

Just in time, however, came KBS’ official statement regarding the controversy surrounding JYJ’s lack of appearances on ‘Music Bank’. KBS stated, “According to the regulations and guidelines set by the staff of ‘Music Bank’, which state that singers are given the opportunity to appear only when they have released an album, JYJ did not meet the given requirements as they have not released an album since February 17th,” and “The choice to allow a singer to appear on the show is solely up to the staff and JYJ’s appearance on the show will be determined by their future activities and album releases.

This means that JYJ have won an opportunity to silence the controversies surrounding the restrictions placed upon them. JYJ are currently touring the North American continent with four new songs, and will be ending their world tour in Busan in June. If JYJ release a new album with new songs around that time, KBS will have to decide on whether to allow JYJ to appear on the show or not, based on the guidelines they have just stated.

It is difficult to determine whether JYJ have succeeded or failed, based only on the activities they have pursued till now since leaving their former agency, SM Entertainment. It would be ludicrous to say that JYJ have failed, when they have not even been given the opportunity to stand on stage.

If JYJ’s music is sub par, there will be no need to place special restrictions on their TV appearances. The strongest restrictions that can be placed on any singer is the public turning their back on the singer’s music.

Therefore, the public should not be stripped of their right to judge the quality and worth of JYJ’s songs. And the broadcasting industry should realize that the impediment on the growth of the cultural industry does not come from JYJ’s televised appearances, but from the unjust practices being exercised against JYJ.

JYJ fans’ warm acts of charity are continuing on.

On the 18th, Daum Telzone’s ‘JYJ Gallery’ donated 180 blood donor cards to the Korean Children with Leukemia Foundation.

In their News of Hope thread, the Korean Children with Leukemia Foundation uploaded a post that read, “Daum Telzone’s ‘JYJ Gallery’ donated 180 blood donor cards that were collected for the blood donation campaign for children with cancer.”

They continued to state, “We will deliver the blood donor cards to children who are in much need of them. We would like to thank the people of Daum Telzone’s JYJ Gallery for participating in our blood donation campaign.”

Not only this, but JYJ’s fans have also donated 1.86 tons of rice to children suffering from malnutrition to support Park Yoochun’s drama ‘Miss Ripley’ and they have been continuously donating to children suffering from rare diseases.

A representative stated, “Fans continue to carry out various acts of charity work and donation drives under JYJ’s name in the hopes that more people will follow their lead and give back to the community."

JYJ fans finally got another glimpse into Yoochun’s new drama, “Ripley“!

For the upcoming May 30th broadcast, Yoochun stars as the “perfect man” ‘Song Yoo Hyun’, while Kang Hye Jung stars as the innocent ‘Na Hee Joo‘, who grew up in an orphanage.

In the drama, Song Yoo Hyun and Na Hee Joo met by chance in a hotel. They form a close relationship upon learning that Na Hee Joo was Song Yoo Hyun’s best friend’s cousin.

The two each planned to bring a friend to watch the baseball game, but both friends didn’t show up, leaving Song Yoo Hyun and Na Hee Joo to watch the game together.
The filming for this episode took place at the Mokdong Ballpark on May 3rd on the day of a real Nexen Heroes versus Kia Tigers Korean baseball league game. In order to film their realistic cheering, filming went on until right before the start of the game.

Filming this scene was fun for both Yoochun and Kang Hye Jung because they were both fans of baseball. The two immersed themselves completely in the ballpark date scene as they cheered on the Nexen Heroes with their thundersticks.

Production representatives said,

“In order to realistically film Yoochun and Kang Hye Jung cheering in the ballpark scene, they learned the cheers from the actual cheerleaders for the scene. Because both like watching baseball, they properly expressed enthusiastic cheering."
