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,

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".

[TRANS] 110714 The Story Behind Yunho And Claudia’s Latest Performance, “We Rehearsed Together Just Three Times”

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.

Following that, he talked about Park Yoochun’s drinking habits. “Yoochun becomes more down to earth and serious when he drinks. I’m the type of drinker who laughs more comfortably and jokes around.”

Park Yoochun also mentioned that due to his filming of “Miss Ripley,” he was unable to meet the members often, but there was an incident where he happened to meet Kim Jaejoong at some bar, with the staff at the bar thinking that he and Kim Jaejoong were together and bringing him to the room where Kim Jaejoong was in.

Kim Jaejoong explained, “This was a total coincidence, it was quite amazing. I was drinking alone in the room, and Park Yoochun suddenly walked in,” he sighed continuously, still finding this incident hard to believe even when recalling it.

[TRANS] 110713 Kim Jaejoong Is Charmed By Directing, “I Want To Work With Kim Hyun Joong, Our Album Isn’t Ready Yet”

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, who recently completed a world tour of two months, has fallen for the charm of being a stage director.

Kim Jaejoong talked about his feelings of ending JYJ’s world tour and expressed the last two months in one word as ‘fun’.

He said, “At the end of the world tour, I felt so thankful and proud of our members, our company coworkers and our staff. Most of the songs we sang during the tour were songs we had composed and I even took on the role of directing the Asia leg of the tour,” and “We even took our tour to the USA; we faced difficulties and troubles but I’m so amazed and proud of the fact that we were able to pull through without receiving help from other people.”

Kim Jaejoong debuted as a director through the world tour. When asked if he prefers acting or directing, Kim Jaejoong smiled and said, “When I’m doing a performance, I’d rather be a director.” He said, “Our director is so great that I’m learning what the qualifications are to becoming a director of a drama,” and “It looks like he begins to film only when he’s done deliberating. But dramas are dramas and concerts are concerts, they each have their own charm.”

When asked which country left him with the most prominent impression during the JYJ world tour, Kim Jaejoong chose Bangkok, Thailand, which they visited in April. He explained, “I think it’s because it was the first city we visited in the Asia leg that I directed. I was so thankful to see that the reaction of our fans was positive.”

‘Director’ Kim Jaejoong is very greedy about directing the concerts and performances of other singers. Kim Jaejoong said, “I’m interested in directing the performances of other idols. Once, Kim Hyun Joong, who I’m close friends with, and I talked about releasing an album and working together, but because Kim Hyun Joong is very greedy about his music as well, I think he’d want to be the director too.“

He reminisced the days he spent directing Sohn Yeon Jae’s rhythmic gymnastics gala show and said that he had a great time doing it. He said, “Sohn Yeon Jae expressed everything much better than I had imagined.” He continued to say with pride, “I think directing is something that becomes more fun and charming the more you do it. Of course, I’m still in the learning stage but I can feel my ability to visualize an entire performance improving,” and “I felt proud of myself, knowing that I was contributing to our team during the rehearsals for our JYJ concerts, not as a singer standing on stage, but as a director who works behind the scenes.“

Regarding a Korean album, ‘Singer’ Kim Jaejoong of JYJ stated, “It’s currently in the making,” but didn’t confirm anything as he said, “I would like to release it right away if great songs come to us, but I wonder if an album release will be possible within this year. We’re working on it whenever we have time.” When asked if he plans to sing for the ‘Protect the Boss’ OST, he said he doesn’t have plans to do so ‘yet’. Kim Jaejoong said, “I don’t have any self-composed songs that can be used for the drama so for now, it would be difficult for me to participate in the OST,” but also left his fans with hope as he added, “But if I’m offered the opportunity to do so, I’ll take it. Anything for the drama.”

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong stated that he has actress Han Hye Jin saved as ‘King of Omok’ in his mobile phone.

In an interview with TV Report on the 11th, Kim Jaejoong said, “When we went to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam for the Park Ji Sung Friends soccer match, I became good friends with Han Hye Jin.” At the time, Han Hye Jin participated in the event as the only female celebrity .

Coincidentally, Kim Jaejoong’s friend happened to know Han Hye Jin, so the two ended up sitting at the same table. Becoming friends quickly in a foreign country, the two would play ‘Omok’(T/N: Omok is a form of Baduk or Go), Han Hye Jin’s hobby, and Kim Jaejoong never won a single match against her.

Kim Jaejoong laughed and said, “She would play Omok every time she was on a break, and she’s so good that she’d probably beat a robot at it. That’s why I saved her as ‘King of Omok’ on my mobile phone.”
