[TRANS] 110528 ‘The Male Star With The Most Suspicious Face-off’ Is JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong

‘Gossip House’, OnStyle’s TV tabloid, released the results for the cheeky poll titled ‘The Male Star with the most Suspicious Face-off’.

In a survey about the nation’s most handsome male stars who have the most suspicious face-offs, who were chosen for looking different from their past selves, 545 netizens voted through the portal site Daum from the 11th to the 16th.

The 7 nominees for the survey were JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho, Jang Dong Gun, Jisung, Kim Hyun Joong, Jang Geun Seok and Lee Teuk.

The man to come in first place by a landslide was JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong with his sharp facial features. He received 57% (275 votes) of the total votes.

Netizens who chose him left comments such as, “He’s like a perfect sculpture now, such a handsome guy. But in old photos, he looks like the ordinary guy next door” and “I can’t find the stage presence that he has now in his old photos.”

Second place went to TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho with 13% (63 votes) of the votes. In the case of U-Know Yunho, who has had his teeth realigned, he looks like and gives off a feel of a completely different person since the treatment, leaving many with envious suspicions of his face-off.

One netizen stated, “You’d only become that handsome after such treatment if you had the basic good-looks to begin with. Though I don’t want to admit it, I’m jealous.”

Kim Hyun Joong(8%), Jisung(6%), Lee Teuk(6%) and Jang Dong Gun(5%) took 3rd~6th place respectively.

[TRANS] 110528 “I’ve Never Seen Anyone With As Much Emotion Naturally Embedded In Their Voice As Junsu.”

These days, the focal point of K-pop is vocal talent. The vocal talent of singers has come under scrutiny through auditions or survival programs and the movement is so fervent that one wonders if there ever really was a time when the meaning of a singer as ‘a person who sings’ was lost to the appearance of idol groups. Some shake nervously as they sing in front of audience evaluators on TV survival programs while one congressman declared that lip syncing should be banned to stop the constant activities of singers who can dance but not sing.

Many think that singers are born with extraordinary vocal skills. But the nation’s best vocal trainer Park Seon Joo(40), who is also a singer, composer and teacher to many stars, says, “That’s not true.” She has been a vocal trainer for 10 years, during a time when most people didn’t even know what a vocal trainer was, and has raised many famous stars such as TVXQ, Cool, SG Wannabe, Yoon Mirae, Kim Bum Soo and Ref. She recently taught top stars such as Lee Bum Soo, Lee Byung Hun and Jung Woo Sung.


Countless singers and actors have passed through Park Seon Joo’s hands, leaving her with that many deep memories. “I met JYJ’s Xiah Junsu when he was in the 8th grade. Because he was going through puberty, we focused on vocalization methods. I’ve never seen anyone with as much emotion naturally embedded in their voice as Junsu.”
