To have caused so much inconvenience to all of you, I sincerely apologise! I’m sorry!

I would also like to apologise for my error in spelling for “Cassiopeia.”

Please do not blame any companies, because I represent myself, and it has nothing to do with them.

I chose the song, and it is currently being removed in large quantities. This may take some time, and it so happens that it is a weekend.

I believe that we will remove the song as quickly as possible, and with sincerity, returning to your idol the song that belongs to him.

I also hope that everyone can stop (pursuing) this matter.

Rest assured that the song will definitely be removed!

Please give me some time.

(T/N: In Chinese, Cassiopeia is“仙后” but apparently he made a mistake and called them “仙贝”(Senbei) instead. )

There is a male idol group that has been in the spotlight even before their debut because of the fact that Sony Music, a global music company, participated in their making. They take on ballads, dance songs, hip hop and even a capella. They seem to be similar to the nation’s best idol group that debuted in 2003, TVXQ, in some ways. TVXQ began as an a capella group and later started the generation of evolving idols.

Here are others who dream of becoming evolving idols. Male idol group HITT debuted on the 6th with the album ‘Here Is The Top’ and are currently performing their title song ‘Good night’. HITT is the acronym for ‘Here Is The Top’, which shows the determination of the members to work hard to get to the top.

With leader Hayong at the core, the group is composed of members Hyun Joon, Joon Taek, Wooram, Jae Hoon and Ho Won. Their vocal talents surpass that of other any other idol group, with five of the six members taking on the role of the vocal of the group.


◆TVXQ are their role model… They will not be remembered as imitators
HITT’s role models are TVXQ. Ho Won said, “TVXQ’s vocal talents and dance skills are outstanding,” and “They’re role models we want to emulate.” Hayong also added, “TVXQ are the direction and destination we’re headed for,” and “But we won’t be remembered as imitators of TVXQ, we’ll do things that they haven’t done before and show our own color.” Jae Hoon said, “I want us to be remembered as HITT, not the 2nd so-and-so,” and “I don’t want us to merely imitate, I want us to show our own style to the masses.”

Currently, the idol market is heavily saturated. Countless idol groups are sweating it out even at this moment, fighting for that top position. This is why HITT need to establish their own unique color.

Wooram said, “I want to hear that it would be a waste for our group to just stay in Korea.” Ho Won added, “I want us to be called evolutionary idols who have perfect dancing and vocal skills.” Last of all, Hyun Joon said, “We will become a group who don’t forget our beginning, even if we get to the top.”

The cancellation notice of KBSʼs TV special on 7 World Wonders…protest comment call Jeju a disgrace.

Appointed as honorary ambassadors to the 7 World Wonders, Hallyu Wave stars JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu), have sparked controversy among thousands of people over clarification for the cancellation of their performances by KBS as well as recent legal action.

With JYJʼs agencyʼs legal action as well as the storm of protests from fans, a strike against the image of [Jeju] island is inevitable.

On the 16th, JYJʼs entertainment agency, CJeS, reported that they received a unilateral notification regarding the cancellation of participation in the KBS Jeju Special Broadcast.

Last May, Jeju officially appointed Hallyu Stars JYJ as GoodWill Ambassadors of the 7 World Wonders in order to improve voter participation throughout Asia.

The date in which CJeS received an email confirming JYJʼs roles as honorary ambassadors as well as the reasons behind why they were chosen was April 26th.

Because at the time JYJ were on their world tour and would not be able to participate in appointment procedures, CJeS declined the offer.

However, Jeju stated that there would be a special program in July in which appointment procedures would be carried out in, and asked for JYJ to begin promotions for Jeju since they needed higher publicity.

On May 4th, the Jeju Island Government released through the press a statement about appointing [JYJ as] their new Honorary Ambassadors.

KBS then scheduled a TV broadcast entitled “Wishing for the 7 World Wonders” to be held on July 20th.

JYJ originally was to participate in this Special Jeju Broadcast concert, performing two of their songs.

However, on the 16th, 4 days before the performance, CJeS was delivered a sudden unilateral notification of cancellation from KBS.

CJeS stated “The reason we received was that if JYJ appears, it might not be possible to air the program” and that “JYJ has been active in their promotion duties, however we have received a unilateral cancellation notice from KBS Jeju.”

They followed by saying “Since the program, Wishing for 7 World Wonders, was meant to be for the appointment of JeJu and also because JYJ have been selected as honorary ambassadors for this cause and have been promoting for 3 months, we require an official position regarding the cancellation.”

CJeS said “we will report KBS Jeju, who have sent a unilateral cancellation notification, to the Korean Fair Trade Comission”

Because of such news, Jeju, the Jeju Provisional Government, and the Jeju official forums, have been hit with with a storm of negative comments.

Indignant commenters stated “This kind of behavior is an embarrassment to the citizens of Jeju and should not be shown again” as well as “I am now canceling my plane tickets to Jeju and have no plans of revisiting in the future!”

CJeS said in this regard “We will take legal action against this situation, in which JYJ were promised to be included in a special broadcast program for their appointment, but were cheated by a unilateral cancellation after they were used for promotional purposes”.

In addition they stated “JYJʼs current lawsuit is a civil lawsuit based on unfair contracts.” and “no matter the situation, as Korean citizens, JYJ will continue to promote Jeju for the 7 World Wonders”

Some comments left by Korean netizens on this article include: “There is a lack of common sense, this is indeed absurd”

Ambassadors who work hard to promote for urgent publicity as well as gather fans support will get a unilateral cancellation notification from KBS as well? It seems the KBS Public Broadcast and the Jeju Provincial Government are really promoting fraud and deceit

“I am a fan of JYJ and really disappointed what happened. I donʼt think I will visit JEJU again, never” (english comment)

Before the commence of JYJ’s topic, there are a few preconditional claims that have to be announced. This is because although the topic that I want to discuss starts with JYJ but the gist of the whole topic is not just about JYJ.
(JaeTime’s T/N: It meant that the discussion and thoughts from the commotion with regards to Korean entertainment agencies and unfair law judgment through the regrouping of JYJ and the lawsuit dispute.)

Preconditional Claim 1: JYJ are idols

JYJ is a new group formed comprising of TVXQ’s Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun and Hero Jaejoong, who left the group. TVXQ has attained the highest spot in the idol industry. This is a status achieved by all members of TVXQ and as an idol, they have their significance and their appearance would meant a significant meaning. Of course at the same time where they have their group of loyal fans, anti-fans would be present as well. Therefore upon any appearance of JYJ-relevant topics, the personal judgement of the issue, fans’ and bystanders’ views have to be clearly differentiated. I do not want to simply discuss about JYJ but to direct at the things happening right now and to talk about my views. Therefore before the beginning of discussion of this issue, We have to understand the slight bias that is present in the term ‘idol’.

Preconditional Claim 2: JYJ are wealthy

JYJ have accumulated lots of wealth. This can be known from the assets that were pronounced in news articles. But the main point of the problem is the unfair contract lawsuit between them and SM. Many people think that given the enormous wealth that JYJ had gotten yet the decision to sue the company was nothing different from being a ungrateful betrayer, with the lack of appreciation towards the company’s initial training for them and instead sarcastically said that themselves are slaves. Whether the truth to this is such, I am not in the position to say anything. But this issue is simple, whether their contract is justifiable or not, the court has its judgment. How much has the trio earned as members of TVXQ, there is no way to certify it now. Stealing 50 thousand away from 100 thousand is the same nature as stealing 50 thousand from 1 million. Because to someone who have earned 1 million, losing that 50 thousand, he would still feel unease.

Thus with these two preconditional claims, no matter they are wealthy people or betrayers, there are no basis. “How will the law be judging it?” This is the most important. Therefore before any conclusion is out, there should not be any clear judgment passed on them. Be it from ethical or law point of view, there are a lot of injustice towards the current JYJ. The weirdest that happened in JYJ’s activities was the unability to appear in news articles, television dramas and not able to participate in variety programmes, in addition to the frequent “sudden cancellation without a reason” incidents. The trio of JYJ recorded QTV’s programme in 24 hours and in the end this programme was unable to be broadcasted by QTV itself. Park Yoochun, who was supposed to attend KBS’s Win Win was canceled, together with this time’s “sudden cancellation” of Jeju island promotional performance even though the receipt of the cue sheet.

Not only such, on normal circumstances when a new drama is due to be broadcasted, the cast of the drama would appear in many variety shows for promotional purposes. But in ‘Miss Ripley’ situation, there are no interview of production company’s press conference from the start, and no appearance of the cast appearing on variety shows such as ‘Come To Play’.

Appearing in drama and news but nowhere to be seen in the entertainment circle, this is obviously an incomprehensible issue. Of course there would be such a situation where fans would express that it is the doing of a certain agency preventing the broadcast, but as the “agency” did not reveal anything, there would not be thoughts of accusations or suspect of the certain agency.

On the contrary, I think the problem lies with the broadcasting company. Because the television company or the news agency would invite guests to make their programmes more interesting. As for drama, the cast’s participation in variety shows would definitely allow the drama to be sold overseas with a higher price.

But the situation of Jeju’s promotional performance is completely different. With them being appointed as ambassadors, they have greatly influenced the promotional effects but was yet omitted in performance. The sudden cancellation was incomprehensible, especially when the schedule was already confirmed. There are lots of overseas fans who have planned to fly over to Korea for this public performance and this has worsen the problem. It feels so regretful especially when this happened in national-managed broadcasting company KBS.

Pre-appointed ambassadors scheduled performance was yet suddenly canceled without any special reason, this is obviously an injustice issue. Gaining the promotional effects and omitting them in the end, this shows the vile side of the establishment. This has to be brought up together with the harm inflicted to many fans. This is not what a national-managed television company should do.

The invisible backdoor pressure rumours were unbelievable. It is obvious that there is special reason and this reason have caused the cancellation. Before any judgment by the court is passed, there should not be any obstruction to their entertainment activities. Korea is a lawful country. In Korea, it is unimaginable to know of power who disregard law and there are no way to confirm if such power existed. If they say that there are not outside pressure, then wouldn’t it be impossible to stop the broadcasting based on one’s effort?

Therefore I hoped that KBS television company will give a proper explanation to this sudden cancellation of JYJ’s broadcasting. What is the exact reason for canceling JYJ’s broadcast. I hoped to receive a convincible reason.

Hopefully KBS can relay to the public the message that “Republic of Korea is a lawful society and there are no injustice.” If KBS’s reason is not convincible, that would be very regretful, very pitiful. This proves that under the law of our Republic of Korea, there are still certain power existing or that KBS has to depend on certain establishment’s power to produce programmes. If it is really so, then undoubtedly, JYJ has bear the injustice sacrifice and they have became the symbol of injustice.

JYJ member Park Yoochun is garnering much attention for texting in to a radio station to support Kim Jaejoong.

Park Yoochun sent a text message to KBS radio Cool FM ‘Choi Kang Hee’s Raise the Volume’ on the 13th. Choi Kang Hee will be acting alongside Kim Jaejoong in the SBS TV drama ‘Protect the Boss’ from the 3rd of August.

Choi Kang Hee read the text, saying, “Mr. 6004! It says, ‘This is Yoochun. I’m enjoying your show. Hwaiting on your upcoming drama and please take good care of Jaejoong hyung,‘” and then commented, “Could this really be Yoochun? Oh, what do I do. His number is right in front of me too. Puahahaha.”

When the text was read out, Park Yoochun sent another one that read, “Thank you for reading my text. I’ll visit once with some fried chicken.” Netizens were split on whether or not it was really Park Yoochun who was texting in, but the opinion that, “Yoochunsa! It really is Park Yoochun,” backed itself up with the fact that the phone number’s last four digits 6004(YookChunSa) sound like Yoochun’s name. Park Yoochun’s Twitter username is 6002themicky, reading ‘Yoochunthemicky’.

To this, netizens said, “Even if it isn’t Park Yoochun, that person better visit Choi Kang Hee with fried chicken”, “This is kind of fun. It’s nice to see the two members’ close relationship”, “Choi Kang Hee is loving this~ Tell me what his number is!”, “It’s great to see him taking care of his hyung.”

Meanwhile, Park Yoochun is currently acting in the MBC TV drama ‘Miss Ripley’ as Song Yoo Hyun.

(Jaejoong, 11.42pm KST) “Wasurenaide” is neither my song nor anyone else’s song. Because it is the song that belongs to the 5 members of “Tohoshinki.” Therefore, I don’t want it to be sung, neither by one person nor by three people.

…and yet he still doesn’t forget to promote Jeju island T____T

It IS pretty :) I wanna go to Jeju now..

This is C-JeS Entertainment.

We are announcing our stance on KBS’s one-sided cancellation notification of JYJ’s appearance in KBS Jeju N7W Special Promotional Program.

Mid-April, through a phone call with the Jeju provincial government, we received their wish to appoint JYJ as an honorary ambassador to promoting Jeju’s selection in New 7 Wonders. The date in which we officially received the roles of an honorary ambassador and their reason for selecting JYJ through e-mail was April 26th.

However, it is customary for honorary ambassadors to begin their promotional activities after being appointed through an appointment ceremony and official press statements are released. Because the time in which we received the offer was during JYJ’s World Tour, we first politely declined their initial offer because we would be unable to hold an appointment ceremony.

However, the local government of Jeju-do stated that they were preparing a special broadcast program in July and that because they are preparing an appointment ceremony to be held then, they proposed that JYJ begin their promotional activities [before the ceremony] since they urgently needed publicity. JYJ, as Korea’s artist, accepted the position of honorary ambassador with responsibility in letting the world know of the domestic brand and Jeju’s 7 Wonders.

On May 4th, the Jeju local government notified the appointment of new honorary ambassadors through the press and [JYJ] officially began their promotional activities. JYJ, who was at the time holding their world tour, promoted Jeju Island and actively cooperated by filming videos encouraging on-line and phone voting as honorary ambassadors. Furthermore, last May, Jeju local government sent us a thank you mail stating that Jeju N7W were being publicized nationwide thanks to JYJ. In addition, the special broadcast program was decided to be held on July 20th, and JYJ was supposed to perform two songs and be officially appointed as honorary ambassadors.

However, on July 16th, 4 days before the concert, we received sudden one-sided notification that our appearance on television has been canceled. The reason was, “if JYJ appears, the program itself may not air,” a final notification without specific explanation. Today, although KBS claimed to have apologized to JYJ, we have only received one-sided cancellation and never an apology with official explanation.

We believe the broadcasting networks have the right to decide on the people that appear for the sake of their program. However, as this program was a special program wishing for Jeju’s appointment as the New 7 Wonders, and since JYJ has been selected as the official honorary ambassadors and have been holding promotional activities for three months, we insist on an official position from Jeju government and KBS regarding this one-sided cancellation notice.

Furthermore, C-JeS Entertainment will report the organizer, who has one-sidedly (without previous consultation with the artist) sent us a cancellation notice 4 days before the performance to the Fair Trade Commission, and will take legal action against this incident where the party promised JYJ a special broadcast program on their appointment ceremony, but deceived the artist by one-sidedly cancelling their appointment ceremony after using them for promotional activities.

Finally, JYJ’s current lawsuit is a civil suit regarding unfair contract with their previous management company, and is in reality, a weak artist’s fight against the unjust nature of exclusive contract, and thus is not a lawsuit which causes social problems or has moral issues. Furthermore, the courts have already decided that while this lawsuit is undergoing, JYJ has the right to resume their activities as free artists.

Most importantly, we apologize to JYJ fans who have received great shock through this unacceptable situation, andregardless of this situation, JYJ will continue to support promoting Jeju’s N7W as Korean citizens.

Thank You.

“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.”

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.

Jaejoong changed his DP:

If there are obstacles even in promoting our own country's natural scenery, then in this circumstance I would have to promote it by myself

▶gentlechan | If there are at least 100,000 people who tweet a picture of Jeju island, wouldn't it be close to a minimum of 20 million?

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.

JYJ member Park Yoochun recently cut his hair short, returning to his look from 4 years ago.

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".
