Part 1

- “Last night, I slept really well.”

- Choikang Changmin had spent his first day in Hawaii, and seemed to be in good spirits. As he greeted us “Good Morning” and looked out at the gleaming sea, he sat, refined and poised like in a movie, sipping coffee and flashing us that killer smile.

- “The theme for this Hawaiian vacation has been settled. It’s ‘Rediscovering Shim Changmin’. So, would you like to come discover with me? (LOL)”

- Regarding his debut at the age of 17, and having always been known as “TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin”, this trip is particularly special to him. Even though this resulted in less time that he could have spent travelling Korea with his friends, the respite from their continuous activities in Japan and in Korea was more than welcomed, especially being able to travel by himself.

- “This is a real time off (from activities), but instead of resting, I’m spending my time on the school work that I was unable to do, or learning things that I couldn’t have before. Now that I think about it, it seems like I’m asking too much from myself. I should be disarming right now. (LOL)”

- Being in a duo with Uknow Yunho to become “Dong Bang Shin Ki”, and standing on stage once more, he underwent much pain and suffering, because he has to live as a part of TVXQ, which is of utmost importance, but he is unable to enjoy his youth. Perhaps, that is what led him to say that treasuring every moment in Hawaii may not be a reality.

- His favourite travel spots are expansive oceans, and tranquil mountain ranges.

Part 2

- “For the 2006 photoshoot, we went to Bora Bora Island, in Tahiti. Because the schedule was very tight, we couldn’t enjoy the place and relax, but to me, that was by far the best place on Earth. Everywhere you looked, the view was like a painting. If I had the chance, I would definitely want to go back. Ah, it seems like an ideal place for a honeymoon. (LOL)”

- Actually, he already has experienced the married life (?), in last winter’s drama serial “Paradise Ranch”. That was the first time that Changmin tried acting, and this new experience, no longer on stage, has fortified him. Strolling on Waikiki Beach, Changmin says: “Hawaii seems to complement my character. No matter where I go, I feel serene. Although coming by myself to Hawaii without Yunho hyung, I do feel sorry about that. (LOL) Having to say that I will be leaving this place soon, I already feel reluctant.”

- Having said that, however, when he returns to Korea, he will be boasting to Uknow Yunho about the 5 days he spent in Hawaii; how he took all these pictures, and how happy he was, exactly like the mischievious kid that he is.

- “Yunho hyung and I are complete opposites. So from the moment we started living together in the same dormitory, there were a lot of unresolved issues. For example, he would drink directly from the 1.5L bottle in the fridge, instead of pouring it into a cup. But over time, these small details no longer become points of contention between the two of us; we’ve gradually become like family.”

- Rather effortfully, he said that because they are like family, they treasure each other equally, hence helping TVXQ keep its place.

- Is there anything you would like to do after the interview?

Part 3

- “Having listened to Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song”, I want to do what the lyrics say, not doing anything, not thinking about anything, simply lazing in bed. I also want to write in my diary by the sea, because I want cherish these moments for a long time. Subsequently, when I write songs, I want to express these feelings in my lyrics. ”

- For this year’s summer vacation, he mentioned that he wanted to tour LA and New York with his friends. He also wants to watch performances with his favourite artistes, and shop in town with his friends, looking at various things. Come night time, he wants to go to a bar and drink good beer. Right now he is the headliner in the Hallyu Wave that is sweeping across Asia, Europe and America, a member of TVXQ, and is still very much Choikang Changmin. But in the quiet of the night, he is like any other 24 year old, wanting to enjoy good beer and music, meeting up with friends and eating pans of pizza, and hoping to meet to girl of his dreams.

- Given all that though, if life was that utopian, he would be uneasy. “I am TVXQ, I am Choikang Changmin, and I must surpass these standards.”; even then he is unable to change this mindset.

- “Now it is different. To feel like I’m moving along in life, to feel like I’m on my way to where I want to be, feeling happiness and melancholy alike are a must, even failure. You always feel a touch of regret with the days that have gone by. That is why, to compensate for that remorse you have to strive even harder in the futrue. When you’re on vacation, your heartaches are forgotten temporarily, and it’s like returning to the start, because you have another vacation waiting. Would you like to come with me on my next vacation? (LOL)”

Hyun Bin’s neat and lovely handwriting caused a stir, and was loved by many viewers.

Especially during NG or upon saying of the wrong lines, Park Yoochun would whined with his crescent smile or using all of his facial muscles to laugh out loud , arousing the filming site with laughters. Staff said, “On the filming site, Park Yoochun is the youngest, and thus due to his whines and ‘cutie pie’ happiness expressions, it made the filming site of ‘Miss Ripley’ a harmonious atmosphere.

JYJ’s Park Yoochun and TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin kept MBC’s staff on their toes as they filmed for their respective shows on the same day and time with just one wall separating them.

On the 22nd, Park Yoochun filmed for ‘Miss Ripley’ on set at the MBC Dream Center in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do. He was following a rigorous schedule of filming for the drama in the morning in the MBC building and heading out in the afternoon to film in Gangnam.

Next to the indoor set of ‘Miss Ripley’ was the set of MBC’s ‘Come to Play’. On this day, many SM Entertainment singers were present after completing their ‘SM TOWN Live Tour in Paris’ performance in Paris, France. Choikang Changmin was present to represent TVXQ on ‘Come to Play’.

Fortunately, it was later found that the two did not run into each other due to their busy schedules. But as Park Yoochun and SM Entertainment representatives have not met in public since the 2009 lawsuit, MBC staff later reported that they were unable to hide their nervousness as they were kept on their toes.

Since Park Yoochun began singing as a member of JYJ, he has been unable to appear on variety shows. Though the lead roles of ‘Miss Ripley’ tried to appear on ‘Come to Play’, the plan was canceled due to doubtful reasons. Even ‘Section TV Entertainment News’ has dropped out of publicizing its own broadcasting company’s drama, which has never happened before.

At the press conference of ‘Miss Ripley’, Park Yoochun confessed, “Though I want to appear on variety shows, I keep getting ‘cut’.”

A representative of ‘Miss Ripley’ stated, “Park Yoochun was supposed to head over to Gangnam to film in the afternoon but filming was delayed, meaning that Park Yoochun was still in Ilsan when ‘Come to Play’ was being filmed,” and “Though the relationship between Park Yoochun and the company(SM Entertainment) may be strained, he is not on bad terms with the members so I don’t think he minded that much.”

From Weekly Magazine Shukan Bunshun

Credits tomomama2 @ twitter

T/N: Shukan (Weekly) Bunshun is a weekly magazine, a circulation of 500 thousand copies per week (2008). The main target is for working member of the society.

It is almost a year since, and there were many pains… we didn’t know it was this hard to be able to come to Japan. (Jaejoong’s MC)

There was the charity event for the Eastern Japan disaster by the Korean 3 members’ group JYJ on June 7 at Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo. 20 thousand went wildly excited.

Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu broke away from the Korean 5 members’ group Tohoshinki, and formed JYJ. They brought the case to court because they were dissatisfied of profit sharing and of the 13 years’ long term contract, the so-called “slave contract”. They are being in opposition with Yunho and Changmin, who remained as “Tohoshinki”. Being in such trouble, avex, who have signed with them their Japanese contract, have suspended the activities of the 3 members from September last year.

“The remaining contract period is less than one year. They intend not to approve any of their activities.” (person related to the record company)
JYJ side has stated that the charity itself is not show business, however, avex stated that “there are contractual problems”, and there was talk that the performance itself will be cancelled.
“The concert at the Kokugikan was not announced until the last minute, and JYJ side forced their way through. avex is now enraged, and if there is a similar case in the future, they may claim compensation for damages. (same person)

“It is so lonely that they resumed their activities for only one day. If they hold a concert every day, I will go every day, and I will contribute every day, too.” There are such fans’ voices. On the other hand, the tabloid newspapers and TV stations took no notice of the event the next day.
It should be a little later before we can see their Japanese activities.

(T/N: above the article)
They sang 12 songs for both the afternoon and evening event. The ticket price in auction sites were up to 5 times of the original price. It was the first time that the Kokugikan was full of ladies. (T/N: Kokugikan is the venue for traditional Japanese sumo wrestling matches.)

(T/N: right bottom of Junsu picture)
Junsu is active in musicals. His twin brother Juno is active in the entertainment world, too.

(T/N: left bottom of Jaejoong picture)
Jaejoong was the eldest in Tohoshinki. He made his Japanese drama debut last year.

(T/N: right bottom of Yoochun picture)
Yoochun was living in US since he was in the upper grade of elementary school till right before his debut in 2004.

T/N: avex stockholders' meeting 2011 will take place on June 26 (Sun), 10:00am at the Tokyo International Forum

Park Yoochun’s stylist has become the subject of envy.

On the homepage of MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’, a photo of Park Yoochun reading over his script was recently posted. He showed his passion for acting in little gestures such as highlighting all his lines with a blue highlighter.

But what caught the eyes of netizens the most was a mysterious hand that was fixing Park Yoochun’s hair. Many believe that the hand belongs to Park Yoochun’s coordinator.

As Jung Woo Sung’s stylist has already become the subject of envy for being the one to have bestowed the actor with a kiss mark for a scene in his production, netizens are once more showing a heated response to such a photo. Netizens left comments such as, “I want to be those fingers”, “The stylist must have saved the country in her past life,” and “I want to be that hand for a day.”

On yesterday’s episode of MBC’s “Miss Ripley,” Yoo Hyun (Park Yoo Chun) unveiled his identity to Mi Ri (Lee Da Hae) by confessing that he’s Mondo Group’s heir.

After Yoo Hyun and Mi Ri started officially dating, he cautiously revealed, “My dad is the CEO of Mondo Group” in order to introduce her to his parents. Mi Ri, who was aware of the fact, made a surprised face, pretending that she was shocked, as she demanded “How could you deceive me?” Yoo Hyun apologized, “I’m sorry. Can you please forget everything else and just think about me? Please understand that I did this so that I could meet you.”

However, as Mi Ri continued to pretend that she was fuming, Yoo Hyun confessed “I love you. I’m upset that I have to confess my love to you in this kind of situation, but I really mean it. I love you.”

Things have been going on the way Mi Ri had planned as Yoo Hyun revealed his identity to her. She followed alongside Yoo Hyun to meet his father In Soo (Jang Yong) and confessed that they have promised to marry each other. However, his step mom Lee Hwa (Choi Myung Gil) gazed at her suspiciously, foreshadowing that she might possibly influence Mi Ri and Yoo Hyun’s relationship.

The Empty Space for You
Album: Miss Ripley OST Part3
Composed & Written by: Jung Haesung
Song by: Park Yuchun

I hope it’s not love
The coming goodbye hurts so much
If you can be happy, [I’ll] stop now stop
This is all I can do for you

My love is an empty space only for you for you for you
I look away and laugh with effort so that you don’t find out
I don’t like it when you’re hurt I don’t like goodbyes
You shouldn’t love me

I would like it if it wasn’t you
Because you, you are the most precious to me in this world
So I push you away and make you cry and turn you down
This is all I can do for you

My love is an empty space only for you for you for you
I look away and laugh with effort so that you don’t find out
I don’t like it when you’re hurt I don’t like goodbyes
You shouldn’t love me

Don’t wait for me… I barely hold back the bitter tears
And I turn around and leave like this

I love you I love you I love you I love you my only love
Although I shout with my heart I can’t call out because [you’re] too precious
My pain is okay because I love you
I can just cry until I’m crazy

I don’t like it when you’re hurt because I love you
I can just do this much

사랑이 아니었음 좋겠어
자꾸 다가오는 이별은 너무 아프잖아

내 사랑 너만을 너만을 너만을 너를 위한 빈자리
눈치 채지 못하게 애써 외면하며 웃고 있는다
니가 아프면 난 싫어 이별은 싫어
날 사랑하면 안돼요

그대가 아니었음 좋겠어
세상에서 가장 소중한 그대 그대 이니까
그래서 널 밀치며 또 울리며 뿌리치며
네게 해줄 수 있는 건 이것뿐

내 사랑 너만을 너만을 너만을 너를 위한 빈자리
눈치 채지 못하게 애써 외면하며 웃고 있는다
니가 아프면 난 싫어 이별은 싫어
날 사랑하면 안돼요

기다리지마 쓰디쓴 눈물 또 겨우 참아내며
난 뒤돌아서 가요 나 이렇게

사랑해 사랑해 사랑해 사랑해 하나뿐인 내 사랑
가슴으론 외쳐도 너무 소중해서 부르진 못해
내가 아픈 건 괜찮아 사랑하니까
난 미치도록 울면 돼

니가 아프면 난 싫어 사랑하니까
난 여기까지 하면 돼

Park Yoochun’s narration left a deep impression on people.

During the MBC Special ‘The Hometown I Used to Live in’, Park Yoochun’s voice made a special appearance as he took on the job as the narrator.

The program was divided into four sections of ‘Our Hometown, Two Months worth of Records’, ‘Shock, the Scene of Destruction as Seen from the Sky’, ‘The Scenery isn’t the Only Thing that Changes’ and ‘Seomjin River Citizens’ Rage’ and showed the last moments of serene peace and scenery that we wish to return to, but will disappear forever.

Park Yoochun’s unique, sentimental and baritone voice added another level of sincerity to the documentary that highlighted the painful reality that lay for our hometowns as they are uprooted by the government’s development plans.

Netizens gave Park Yoochun positive marks for his first narration as they said, “As I was watching the MBC special, I teared up as the sad reality and Park Yoochun’s voice molded together”, “Park Yoochun’s voice is really nice” and “I was able to get into it more because of Park Yoochun’s narration.”

Park Yoochun is currently working on a tight schedule as he films for MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Miss Ripley’ but decided to take on the narration job as he agreed with the theme of the program.

Through the help of a Korean Noona fan, I am able to directly ask Yunho’s father about Yunho’s leg injury. Due to Yunho’s hectic schedule and the continuous skating practice for two days, Yunho strained his leg and it is slightly swollen. However, the leg injury is not so serious to the extent that he needed hospital treatment. Yunho’s injury has been relieved through medications and massage treatments. Yunho and his father would like everyone to not worry too much about his injury and hope that everyone could continue supporting the show.

I’ve the same thought as many of my friends. We are proud of Yunho for participating in the show but on the other hand, we are worried about him as well. Upon learning he had himself injured, we do hope that he can withdraw from the program immediately. However, given his character, we know that Yunho does not allow himself to be defeated easily. Since he chose to participate in this program, he would put in his very best till the very end of the program. Its either he works hard till the very last second of his performance or he do not participate at all. This is our Yunho. Therefore, though we are worried about him, let’s watch him complete each and every of his performances beautifully. Yunho hwaiting!

It has been confirmed that JYJ’s Xiah Junsu lives in the same neighborhood as singer Lee Sora.

Lee Sora’s Winsle County town house in Paju, Gyeonggi-do has become a hot topic online and it has been found that Xiah Junsu’s parents live in the same area.

Xiah Junsu’s house is a 87 pyeong(approximately 288m²) Winsle County house and was sold to him at a market price of around 1.7 to 1.8 billion Won. Lee Sora is living in a 75 pyeong(248m²) house that costs approximately 1.5 billion Won. The two houses are at a very close distance though each is built as a detached villa, and they’ve been called the ‘Star Town Houses’ amongst those living in the neighborhood.

Xiah Junsu has garnered great attention in the past when he released photos of his house’s interior on his Twitter account. In May, he uploaded photos of his garden of flowers with the captions, “I fed my fish. The baby fish have grown up so much,” and “This is the scenery of the garden from the second floor. The azaleas have bloomed and the running water sounds pretty good.”

Winsle County is made up of 98 large-scale town houses across 43,281m² of land and each villa has three floors, of which one is underground. Each villa has an average of 100m² of private gardens, has parking space for at least two cars and can each have its mailing address registered individually. Each room has great lighting and scenery as the houses are surrounded by an array of beautiful landscapes.

A representative of Dongmoon Construction stated, “As it is impossible to see the inside of the house when you pass by, it would be close to impossible to invade the families’ privacies,” and “Most of the people who live in the houses are executives of firms, professionals, and delegates.”

“Choikang Changmin, do you want to spend the summer solstice with me?”

While clearing up rumors of an alleged wedding, actress Han Ye Seul proposed a surprise date to Choikang Changmin. This was on the 20th during the ‘Spy Myeong Wol’ press conference at the KBS Drama Center.

On this day, Han Ye Seul cleared up rumors of her getting married soon and said, “Though it might be difficult to get married in the next year, my chances will probably shoot up in two to three years.” She continued to say, “If I want to get married, I should probably stick to the plan of getting a boyfriend after this production is over.”

To this, Eric also helped her as he said, “I too was curious of the rumors so I asked her about it on the plane, but she told me she has no plans to get married any time soon. But I’m worried that another article will be published with the title, ‘Han Ye Seul to get Married in Three Years’. Those were words that could be misunderstood easily.”

When asked what she thought about being chosen as Choikang Changmin’s ideal woman, she aroused laughter from those around her when she said, “Choikang Changmin, do you want to spend the summer solstice with me?”
