“In viewing the program as a whole, Girls Generation and F(x)’s appearances are effective.”

On the cancellation of appearance by JYJ from the Jeju 7 Wonders KBS Special Live Broadcast, KBS Jeju Broadcast Agency (hereafter “KBS Jeju”) revealed its position.

The KBS Jeju affiliate who is producing this broadcast said in the telephone conversation with MyDaily on the afternoon of the 17th relayed that due to the appearance of Girls Generation and F(x) the cancellation of JYJ’s appearance had taken place: “We were propelling the appearance of Girls Generation and F(x) from before but they fell through due to scheduling problems. But at the end of the preparation stages for the broadcast, they said that they could appear. The duty of our broadcast station from the perspective of culture is to introduce many stars to the region’s society. In viewing the program as a whole, we considered just what is effective.”

The affiliate continued: “To the side of JYJ, we respectfully revealed our apologetic position.” He explained further “The group SpringSummerFallWinter will appear as planned. But in this broadcast, aside from SpringSummerFallWinter, Girls Generation, and F(x), other artists such as popera singers are planned to appear.”

The local government of Jeju, who is one of the hosts of the event, revealed through an affiliate on the telephone: “We do not know. What kind of power or abilities would we have to procure a celebrity. It is something that KBS Jeju pursued.”

Further, they relayed that they felt they were falsely charged: “Due to this situation, there are posts of protests raining on the bulletin of Jeju’s local government. But this is not something that we have done.” In particular, Jeju worried about there being potential ill effects on the voting for Jeju as one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

Before this, JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment had revealed through its official webpage on the 16th: “JYJ had been looking forward to appearing on the 20th on the special broadcast as honorary ambassadors for Jeju as a member of the 7 Wonders. But today we suddenly received the notification of cancellation. We have currently requested the precise reason for the sudden cancellation of appearance to the hosts. We ask for your understanding on our sudden announcement of cancellation to the fans who had been waiting. We will soon make an additional announcement after confirming the situation.”

Eric Moon is the leader of the group Shinhwa. Shinhwa is well-known as the first and the only one of the “first generation” idols from SM to survive as a unit beyond a certain age. All of Shinhwa, under the lead of Eric, left SM.

Fan: Eric Oppa, what do you think about the things that have happened to JYJ Oppas? What do you think about the things that SM is doing right now, also?

Eric: @Fan1 Erm… I’ll just tell you that things that are very much beyond fans’ thoughts/imagination are happening on this front (the Korean Entertainment industry). You have to win and survive. There is no way other than that.

After JYJ’s appearance on KBS’s Jeju Island special was suddenly cancelled, Jaejoong took it to his personal Twitter account to promote Jeju Island.

Jaejoong tweeted, “If there is an obstacle for me to promote our country’s natural landscape, I’ll promote our country myself.” He then changed his profile picture to a photo of a mountain in Jeju Island.

JYJ was initially confirmed to perform on KBS’s special program to promote Jeju Island as one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World.” Despite the program’s scheduled broadcast date of July 20th, JYJ’s appearance was suddenly cancelled.

On July 16th, C-JeS Entertainment’s homepage was updated with an announcement stating, “JYJ was scheduled to perform on KBS’s Jeju Island special on the 20th, but we have received a notice of cancellation. We have requested an explanation for the cancellation from the organizer.”

Netizens reacted, “I would like to know the exact reason,” “Does it make sense that the ambassadors of Jeju Island don’t appear on the special?”, “I’m going to promote [Jeju Island] too,” and “You didn’t give up, so I won’t give up either.”

In support of Jaejoong, fans of JYJ have began changing their Twitter profile pictures to photos of Jeju Island’s landscape.

Jeju event hosts do not give a clear answer, but instead have aired a (TV) advertisement that declared that “Girls Generation and F(x) Will Appear in the KBS 7 Wonders for Jeju Event” and is thus growing the controversy.

Further, it has become unclear as to whether JYJ’s appointment ceremony as honorary ambassadors will be held or not, and so the dissatisfaction is forecasted to grow. JYJ’s affiliates relayed: “Originally we heard that the appointment ceremony as honorary ambassadors will be held on the 20th, matching the schedule of the performances on the 20th. But as the schedule is entirely cancelled, we do not know what will happen to the appointment ceremony either.”

JYJ Kim Jaejoong also poured out his bitter heart through his Twitter: “If there are obstacles in promoting the wonders of our country, in this case I will promote it even if by myself.”

Notification Regarding ‘Redundant’

Hi everyone, I am Zuo Qi Bo. Please give me some time to clarify this whole matter.

Regarding the leaking of the song ‘Redundant’ on internet and the causing of TVXQ’s fans unhappiness over the remake of the Japanese song ‘Wasurenaide’ written and composed by Korean singer Kim Jaejoong, I would like to deeply apologise.

I do know that this song carries a lot of your stories and memories and believed that I will join in your big united loving family, because I am the same as you all, liking Kim Jaejoong, liking his talent and vocal. Kim Jaejoong is also my idol and role model at the same time. Therefore we will cautiously settle the problems for this song ‘Redundant’, and we will eagerly try to reach an angreement with Kim Jaejoong himself. Cassiopeia, please be at ease! This song release will currently be freezed and would not be released or sang until an agreement is reached.

Additionally, with regards to ‘Redundant’.
Composed by: Kim Jaejoong
Remake Lyrics by: Zuo Qi Bo/Wei Su
OT: Wasureinaide
This incident is what I did not predicted to be and lack of consideration for the feelings of TVXQ’s fans. I would like to apologise again!!! Hopefully I can receive forgiveness!!!

On the other hand, this incident has nothing to do with Tian Yu Media, Avex Music (Avex China) and SM Entertainment, it is not a resale of Jaejoong’s song by Avex, as said by everyone.
Hoped that everyone can understand. Please don’t blame the unrelated company, you can blame me for everything. Because I chose to sing this song and thus I should be the one to bear the responsibility.
We will assure the composer’s rights and cherish the copyrights!
I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused and troubles! I lacked the consideration when doing things! Sorry!
Thank you! Hopefully everyone can give me a chance! Please don’t pursue this matter again!

T/N: There is supposedly an album to be released on the 18th of July by singer Zuo Qi Bo. He is also a singer under Avex China. The songs were leaked before release and fans realised the remake of Wasurenaide in it, thus have been expressing their unhappiness, questioning if Avex sold this song without Jaejoong’s agreement. Thus, Zuo Qi Bo released this statement on his weibo.
Please note that copyrights issue between the members and company is not an announced matter. We do not know the agreement regarding personal compositions between the members and Avex/SME. Whether Zuo Qi Bo/Avex/Tian Yu Media/SME did sold/transfer/buy/steal Wasurenaide or not, infringement of copyright is still a serious matter.

Please read this you guys!^^ Don't hate on the poor singer :(
A corner that can’t be avoided in our interviews is the ‘bag opening’ corner.

We ask stars to open their bags without prior notice in order to get one step closer to these famous faces.

Some interesting items were caught on camera in the first half of this year.

What stuck out most were Gong Hyo Jin’s pink tumbler, Kim Jaejoong’s blue pack of Hwatu cards, Yesung’s two pairs of jeans and Kim Ah Joong’s ID card from her drama.

Idol Kim Jaejoong made those around him laugh when he brought out an item that was unexpected. What he pulled out was a pack of Hwatu cards; what was most interesting about the pack was that the backs of the cards were blue. He said that he uses them to pass time when JYJ are performing overseas, adding that he usually wins most of the time when he plays with the other two members.

B2ST made an honest confession about their popularity overseas.

On MBC’s ‘Golden Fishery-Radio Star’ on the 29th (MC’s Kim Guk Jin, Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Gura, Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul), idol group B2ST showed off their witty humor.

On this day, when MC Yoon Jong Shin said, “We heard that B2ST is very popular in Japan these days,” Sohn Dong Woon stated, “People say that we’re very popular in Japan, but honestly, we can’t feel it ourselves.”

He said, “We stood on stage with TVXQ in Japan, and our popularity doesn’t compare with their’s. We felt like guests at the concert.” To this, other members of B2ST added, “In Taiwan, Super Junior is popular and in Thailand, 2PM with Nickhun is popular.”

To this, Kim Gura said, “B2ST have gone beyond what people expected them to become when they first debuted. I think you’re amazing.”

A photo of JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong signing a shirt has become a hot topic.

On an online community recently, a photo of Kim Jaejoong signing a t-shirt was posted. Kim Jaejoong, who is currently modelling for a clothing brand, is seen signing the shirt with a black marker.

Kim Jaejoong is wearing a white shirt with thin stripes. With slightly wavy brown hair, Kim Jaejoong is focusing his concentration on the t-shirt in front of him. His eyes that don’t seem to leave the shirt, his sharp nose and his tightly closed lips jump out of the photo.

Netizens who say the photo said, “Him signing that t-shirt looks like a work of art”, “All he’s doing is signing a shirt but it looks like it’s from a photoshoot”, “I’m so jealous of whoever is getting the shirt”, “That t-shirt was touched by Kim Jaejoong”, and “His beauty jumps out. Visual shock indeed.”

On the other hand, Kim Jaejoong will be debuting in the drama industry with the SBS TV drama ‘Protect the Boss’ on the 3rd of August. Kim Jaejoong will be playing Cha Mu Won, the prince of the financial world.

Earlier today, JYJ received a notice of cancellation regarding their appearance on a KBS special covering the ‘New Seven Wonders’, for which they were appointed honorary ambassadors for back in May.

Just four days away from the broadcast and with tickets for the event already bought, C-JeS Entertainment expressed their confusion and disappointment with the sudden cancellation notice through a post on their official homepage.

Recent developments have hinted at the possibility of backdoor pressure being the root cause, as a representative of JYJ’s public relations company revealed, “Our manager spoke with KBS officials and they had told him, ‘If we allow JYJ to appear on this program, the entire event will simply become impossible to hold.’”

Because of their lawsuit against SM Entertainment, JYJ has been facing difficulty appearing on MBC, SBS, and KBS for some time now. A similar case arose with Yoochun’s ‘Miss Ripley‘ coverage earlier this year, so the possibility of backdoor pressure isn’t too much of an exaggeration.

Currently, a request for a reasonable explanation has been lodged to the event hosts and a response is being awaited. Stay tuned for more updates.

JYJ’s Jaejoong is being highly praised by his senior co-stars for his acting skills on SBS’s ‘Protect the Boss‘.

According to SBS, the crew kicked off the drama’s official filming by recording a reception scene at the 63 Building in Yeouido, Seoul on July 15th. As soon as the cue sign was dropped by PD Son Jung Hyun, Jaejoong was said to have slipped seamlessly into his role as ‘Moon Won’.

Senior co-stars like Park Young Kyu, Cha Hwa Yeon, Kim Ha Gyun, and many others all praised, “Jaejoong is an actor who will attain greatness. Let’s all support him so that he can do even better.” Staff members who had been watching Jaejoong interact with Ji Sung for their script also complimented, “They’re truly a great senior and junior.”

Producers of the drama added, “Before filming began, Jaejoong made sure to check over not only his script, but his outfit and make-up as thoroughly as possible. Although it’s his first time acting, he is as passionate as any other actor out there.”

The drama will begin airing on August 3rd.

The passionate requests from the viewers to add more episodes to “Miss Ripley” is still going strong. The absolute champion in the Monday-Tuesday dramas, dominating the top spot, “Miss Ripley” viewers have been continually asking for the number of episodes to be increased.

In the MBC Monday-Tuesday drama ” Miss Ripley” (Director: Choi I-Seop, Writer : Kim Sun Young, Producted by : Curtain Call Media, C-JeS Entertainment) hit ratings of 19.1% (AGB Nielsen, Seoul) in episode 14, aired on 12 July, creating a new record for the show and maintaining top position in ratings for the Monday-Tuesday drama slot.

“Miss Ripley” survived in the flood of romantic comedies, a “melodrama” that stood out like a precious gemstone. From this alone, the value of the viewership ratings are increased. They conquered the hearts of females who have been hoping to watch melodramas, and saw a steady increase in viewership ratings.

On the “Miss Ripley” messageboard, there have been numerous requests and opinions for more episodes. “I really found a special drama that moves one’s heart. I can’t stop crying as I watch TV.” “There are still so many words left unsaid between Choi Myung Gil and Lee Da Hae, how can you just end it like this. It would feel more complete after an extension,” and other comments, the call for an extension being very strong.

The production company said, “With regards to the extension of the show, the staff have been observing intently and diligently trying to fully understand the situation.” “As there is a lot more of the story that we want to tell, we too are hungry for an extension so as to be able to show a more complete drama.”

Also, the new record high ratings of 19.1% (AGB Nielsen, Seoul) in episode 14 have boosted the possibility (of an extension.)

The big plot twist of Choi Myung Gil being the birth mother of Lee Da Hae has attracted much attention. In the confrontation scene at the end (of episode 14) where Choi Myung Gil realises that Lee Da Hae is her daughter, viewership ratings hit 19.5% (AGB Nielsen, Seoul) momentarily, obviously pointing out the part of the plot where the viewers are most concerned about.

On 14 July, an article was posted in the forums with the title “Park Yoochun with his hair cut short, “reverse growth”, returning to 4 years ago” and uploaded images as well.

One of the images was recently taken for the MBC TV Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley,” and the other was taken 4 years ago, during his activities as a TVXQ member.

Looking at the two images, netizens were shocked, saying “He hasn’t changed at all!” “Only the fans have grown older!” “Did he drink from the fountain of youth?” and other comments.

July 13, 2011 (omitted) I went to "MUSIC BANK IN TOKYO K-POP FESTIVAL" at Tokyo Dome, where Tohoshinki/KARA/SNSD/2PM/Rainbow and others performed.

(few sentences omitted)

I was tired because of all the live filming,
but, in the evening
I went to Tokyo Dome.
It was a special live (?) for
the Korean TV network
KBS-san’s music program
It was very enlightening.
YES! I want to watch it again.

2. Suzumi (Casting Producer)

The K-POP artists gathered for the Japan live for the Korean TV program "MUSIC BANK".
It started from 18:30, Jul 13 (Thurs) (T/N: it was on Wed), at the Tokyo Dome.


This is the front gate of the Tokyo Dome.

The artists who performed were:
Tohoshinki, KARA, SNSD, 2PB, BEAST
4 Minute, U-KISS, IU, Baek Ji Yung
Secret, Rainbow, INFINITE, Park Hyun Bin
RaNia, X-5

The concert hall was filled with feverish excitement!
The stick lights were so beautiful, I was really fascinated!
All the artists had good figures, they were all very attractive!

Few years ago, in the TV program "Mirai Souzoudo", the 5 members of Tohoshinki (before they broke up) appeared.
Now the 2 members have much stronger aura, I realized that they are strictly controlling themselves, and are walking their artists' road with steady steps.
We could not take our eyes of the 2 members of Tohoshinki, who has become increasingly powerful.

T/N: Please click here for the video of "Mirai Souzoudo".

U-Know Yunho and Claudia, who are working together as partners in ‘Kim Yuna’s Kiss&Cry’, pulled off a perfect performance after rehearsing together just three times.

In the July 3rd episode, U-Know Yunho and Claudia completed a performance with the concept of ‘A Ballerina who fell in love with a B-boy’. Starting off with waltz music, the duo sped the tempo up and moved on to b-boying on ice.

In the first round of competitions, U-Know Yunho was ranked a shocking eighth place because he didn’t have time to rehearse with Claudia due to his frequent overseas activities. On the July 3rd episode, U-Know Yunho confessed, “We had even less time to rehearse together,” and emphasized the importance of practicing.

But contrary to his worries, the duo worked in harmony and shined in terms of speed, technique and acting. The move that involved U-Know Yunho’s high level windmill move and Claudia’s fast-paced spin was chosen as the best moment of the performance.

It was later found that Claudia ended the performance with quite a large wound on her hand though everything looked fine on the outside. She was scratched by the sandpaper that was attached onto U-Know Yunho’s glove to stop him from slipping on the ice while b-boying.

Also, the two people were only able to practice together three times. After sharing ideas and deciding on the choreography, the two met in the middle of the night to rehearse together. Once, they ended up practicing past two o’clock in the morning. Though U-Know Yunho and Claudia were both disappointed by their lack of practice, they were able to forget it by pulling off a great performance.
