The ‘department head bracelet’ of Kim Jaejoong, who is currently appearing in SBS TV’s Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’, has become a hot topic amongst viewers.

On the 24th, Department Head Cha Mu Won (played by Kim Jaejoong) reminisced about the painful memories behind the bracelet he owned. Considered as the only article left to him by his deceased father, the bracelet is a piece of jewelry that means a lot to him.

The fact that he presented No Eun Seol (played by Choi Kang Hee) with the precious bracelet added an interesting scene to the plot.

After the episode aired, viewers began calling the bracelet that Kim Jaejoong wore the ‘department head bracelet’. With a unique design of white gold and a black leather strap, it is said to fit Cha Mu Won’s image very well.

Mucha, the company that specially produced the bracelet, explained, “It’s a distinctive bracelet that incorporates a former watch design. With diamonds and natural rubies, the bracelet is made out of leather. The ‘C’ logo in the middle represents the Cha family.“

In the Tokyo performance on 27 August, Tohoshinki appeared for the first time in 2 years, and were the closing act for the first time in a-nation. This day, they were also the closing act, showing a powerful stage. As the two men took to the stage, the red penlights shook passionately, and the stadium was filled with cheers. Performing the intense dance number “Rising Sun,” Yunho said “Thank you for waiting, Tohoshinki has returned to a-nation! Tokyo is truly great. It’s passionate and feels really good.” Changmin said “I’m really happy to be performing with such great artists, and I’m really happy to be able to spend time with everyone who is here right now,” in a thankful manner, earning cheers and screams from the audience. Then, as he perspired, Changmin was going to announce the next song, and the audience responded with an “Eh~ (wanting him to talk more)” and Changmin said “Every time I say “we’re going to perform our next song”, you say “eh~” but still, now it’s time for the next song!” cutting everyone off swiftly while inducing laughter, and revealed their new song “Superstar.” Following that, they did a medly of songs including “Toki wo tomete” and “Somebody to Love,” bringing the entire crowd to a collective high, and finally did the spectacular dance performance of “Why? (Keep your head down).” “You’ve all worked hard at a-nation 2011. This has been a really happy summer!” (Changmin said) as they finished the last of the tour.

The theme for this CF is George Rochegrosse’s work Le chevalier aux Fleurs (The Knight of Flowers). When the CF director show this art to me… I think that even with my status, the majority have not seen such an image before.

But there’s something to worry about too. Even with TVXQ and Kim Hye Soo, these leaders of charisma, will they be able to fully portray this in mere 15 seconds? Will it be possible to display out the feelings?

The filming was done in a very good atmosphere and the filmed videos were edited. I was watching the edited video and… was the image well portrayed? This mixed feeling. It’s only a CF and it took so much effort. It’s all because how different it is going to be from previous MISSHA’s CF.

Because it is not a normal cosmetic CF. Hopefully we are able to let others know why MISSHA did this… What changes… What MISSHA’s statement is.

And hopefully many people will like this new MISSHA’s statement… Innovation.
