JYJ has announced that they’ll soon be performing in South America!

On January 4th, C-Jes Entertainment revealed, “JYJ’s South American tour has been confirmed. JYJ’s solo concert will be held on March 9th in Chile followed by March 11th in Peru.”

The March 9th concert will be held in Santiago, Chile at the Teatro Caupolican, while the March 11th show will be held in Lima, Peru at the Explanada Sur del Estadio Monumental.

The South American promotion agency for JYJ remarked, “The popularity of JYJ in South America is in a different class altogether from the craze for K-Pop. Their popularity exceeds that of domestic artists as well as American pop artists, and they have the passionate support of teens as well as those in their 20′s.”

The JYJ members stated, “The countries are very far with flight times over 30 hours. After releasing an English album in 2010 with Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins, the amount of fans in the Americas have grown rapidly. Thus, although the [countries] are so far away, they have always felt familiar [to us].”

They continued, “During the 2010 Worldwide Album Showcase, many South American fans came to our concerts in cities like L.A. and San Francisco, and even to Europe; they’ve wanted us to come to South America for a long time. We are happy that we can keep our promise to our fans, and we will prepare a perfect performance to match the passion of South America.”

Baek Chang Joo, CEO of C-Jes, stated, “The K-Pop craze and JYJ’s happiness have different paths. …We don’t want this to be thought of as Hallyu’s new challenge. It’s not about about where one goes to hold their first overseas concert, it’s about how much substance and what kind of content is brought into the shows.”

He continued, “This is not a concert meant to try and gain new fans, this is a concert where we wanted to repay the JYJ fans for their love and support. For the South American fans who have waited so long, we will put on a well-made performance filled with JYJ’s vocals and amazing harmonies, as well as numerous other performances.”

Kim Jaejoong and Wang Ji Hae were caught sweating bullets as they were asked about their kiss scene.

On the 31st of December, the 2011 SBS Drama Awards were held at the SBS Open Hall and the duo were asked about the retakes they did for their kiss scene.

The MCs asked, “We heard that Kim Jaejoong and Wang Ji Hae had to film their kiss scene 50 times because of all the NGs. Did you enjoy it?” and Wang Ji Hae hesitated before she said, “Yes.” When she was asked, “Would you do it again?“, a fan of Kim Jaejoong screamed ‘No!’ while Wang Ji Hae was once again hesitant to give an answer. But Kim Jaejoong showed an honest side as he stated, “Acting is just acting, so I would do it a 100 times if I had to.”

Though Kim Jaejoong was confident about the kiss scene, he said little when it came to bed scenes. When asked if he planned to film any bed scenes in the future, Kim Jaejoong evaded the question as he said, “I’m not confident about my body.”

The MCs in charge of the awards ceremony were none other than the main couple of ‘Protect the Boss’, Ji Sung and Choi Kang Hee.

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong has become an expert at playing by himself.

On the 1st, Kim Jaejoong uploaded a picture entitled “Playing Star Wars” via his own Twitter account.

In the picture, Kim Jaejoong is seen taking a shot of himself holding onto a lightsaber that appears in the movie “Star Wars” and posing with a sharp look in his eyes.

In particular, his ruffled fringe is pinned back, revealing his clear forehead, giving him an air of a boy-next-door, rather than a celebrity.
Previously, on Christmas Day on the 25th, Kim Jaejoong had also revealed photos of himself playing alone.

In response to the photos, netizens expressed, “An expert at playing by himself”, “That’s how you played after the award ceremony?”, “That hair clip that made me forget for a moment that oppa is an artist”, “Seems Jaejoong is also from the 4th dimension”, among other responses.

They have already passed the stage of trying to define each other, and now the presence of the other is just a natural existence.

Being able to chat with the two members of TVXQ, U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin is always an enjoyable thing. Always very cool and unreserved when talking about themselves, they are very much like their on-stage personalities, bold and unguarded.

When performing, their sweat is used to fill the stage, and when coming off stage the two youths smile as they return. Their “double-charm” is expected to continue this year.

Although we are familiar already with their on-stage images, how do they spend their time when they don’t have any activities? As expected, they have their own hobbies that they do during their free time.

Yunho : Recently it’s been really cold in winter, and I enjoy snowboarding. I also like watching movies. I like the feeling of peacefulness when watching and enjoying a movie.

Changmin : I like hiking or strolling around, and I like watching movies, musicals and performances.

There seems to be many moments where they would feel alone. Everyone has a different way to overcoming loneliness. When asked about how they overcome loneliness, the two men of TVXQ smiled a little.

Yunho : There are times that I feel lonely. When I’m done with all my schedules and get home, and planning to lie down on my bed, I sometimes get lonely. If I am unable to fall asleep, I read books. I slowly started to like reading, so I’m trying very hard to read lots of books. It seems like it helps me to improve on my flaws, and also allows me to widen my range of thinking.

Changmin : I’m the kind that gets lonely often. To overcome this, I listen to music and watch funny variety shows to make myself laugh.

Walking together on the same path like this, the two men have spent many precious moments together. To each other, the presence of the other person is more precious than anyone else. And like this, the two men must understand each other quite well.

Yunho : Changmin may be the younger brother, but be it work or on a normal basis, he always has a very calm side. He is the kind of friend who speaks more through actions than words.

Changmin :
Yunho is the type who gets things done once he sets his mind on it. He is the type that is exceptionally motivated. I feel that this is his strong point, and something that I should learn. Also, when working, he will always maintain a professional attitude, and this is also another of his good points.

TVXQ’s unique fashion sense is also very famous. Their airport fashion, in particular, is often something that is noticed by the fans. However, their airport fashion gaining too much attention has become a burden.

Yunho : Fashion is one of the ways to express yourself. As a singer, you often show a powerful look on stage, but airport fashion shows a more casual and relaxed side, and is expressed through many styles. The airport fashion may be a burden, but compared to being a conscious dresser, I prefer to dress according to my own opinions, and it’s good that people like it.

Changmin : To me, Fashion is something that creates a character and image, and the way for you to express yourself. Airport fashion is actually quite a burden. (Laughs)

If one were to be able to gain the love of these two cool men, that would be such a great fortune. Let’s take a look at what types these two men like.

Yunho : If we’re judging by appearances, I like girls with long, straight hair and big eyes. In terms of artists, it would be Jeon Ji-hyun, as I have mentioned many times before. I like the type from the movie “My Sassy Girl.”

Changmin : Someone who is like the Japanese actress Takeuchi Yuko would be my preferred type.

In the new year, both men have different goals. This year, aside from Korea which is a given, you will see a TVXQ which is more active on a global scale.

Yunho : I hope to have an even happier and more meaningful year. Just like how we have been working hard in preparation so far, next year I want to be like a dragon and soar to the skies for all matters, and I will work my hardest.

Changmin : I happen to be born in 1988, which is also the year of the dragon.It would be great if there were many good things that happen this year. Personally, I would like to train myself harder, and it would be good if this is a year in which I can progress.

Every New Year, SBS Entertainment News will see an overhaul. To express our determination, and thanks to the support of the passionate TVXQ, we seem to be off to a great start. We hope that everyone can have a happy New Year together with SBS Entertainment News.

Yunho : We hope that you can deliver news in a great way, especially good news. As this is the year of the dragon, we hope that it is a year which you can soar. I, Yunho will work hard together with SBS Entertainment News, to make it a year where we can bring more smiles to everyone.

Changmin : This new year is the year of the dragon, so it would be great if SBS Entertainment News can soar to the skies like a dragon, and gain a lot of love. From now on, please deliver lots of great news and rich content, we will be supporting you! Fighting!!”

TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin’s height difference in comparison to a Japanese idol group has become a hot topic on the internet.

On 1 January, an image was posted online. This image was taken from the “62nd Kouhaku Utagassen” stage which was held on 31 December last year, and showed the Japanese idol group Arashi, who were the hosts of the show.

What attracted the attention of viewers was the height difference between Arashi member Kazunari Ninomiya and Choikang Changmin, who was standing behind him. According to information online, Choikang Changmin’s height is 185cm, and Kazunari Ninomiya’s height is 168cm, a difference of 17cm in height between the two men.

After seeing this photograph, netizens commented, “Our artists have become giants when they go to Japan” “Choikang Changmin is great” and other responses.

Also, TVXQ who participated the “62nd Kouhaku Utagassen” for the first time as a two-member group, also won the popularity poll by 49.7%, taking top position.

Kim Junsu’s item auction is actually not that different from that of Jang Geun Suk’s, with the bids rising steadily from the start, continually increasing from the starting offer of 1 million won, and exceeded the 10 million won within the first 30 seconds. The final closing bid were 11 million won and 7 million won.

However, compared to the price, Kim Junsu gained the most attention for his high level of social etiquette. As he walked towards the Japanese fan who won the bid to express his sincere gratitude, the said Japanese fan seemed to have called someone, and suddenly passed the mobile phone to Kim Junsu. Although we are not sure what the conversation was about, but in that 30 seconds or so of being surrounded by numerous journalists, Kim Junsu maintained his cheerful expression and spoke on the phone, and after the call had ended, he immediately suggested to the fan that they take a photo together first.

The conduct of Kim Junsu was not a result of his personal item being purchased at such a high price, but because he wanted to express his sincere thanks to his fan who had shown him so much support.

In the SBS Drama Awards held at the SBS Open Hall on 31 December, Kim Jaejoong received the ‘New Star Award’. He had made his debut as an actor through his role as Director Cha Mu Won in the drama “Protect The Boss”.

Kim Jaejoong delivered his acceptance speech saying, “I did not expect to win the award, so to actually be able to win makes me really happy. I’d like to give my thanks to the JYJ members, who would probably be the most happy.”

Previously, on the MBS Drama Awards held on the 30th, Park Yoochun received the Best Newcomer Award.

TVXQ was placed number 1 in the popularity vote for the “Kouhaku Utagassen”, proving their huge popularity in Japan.

In the popularity vote involving all the artists who had performed in NHK’s “62nd Kouhaku Utagassen” that concluded at 11.59pm on 31 Dec, TVXQ obtained 49.7% of the total votes cast, winning 1st place with a record of almost half the total votes.

This voting was only open to those within Japan, and Korean fans, as well as international fans were not able to participate. After excluding the repeated votes, TVXQ maintains the 1st place with a shocking 65.3% of the total votes. The “Kouhaku Utagassen” is the most highly acclaimed (music) festival in the Japanese music industry. Thus, the position that TVXQ has managed to establish as top stars in Japan is clearly visible from the vote.

On this day, TVXQ members were dressed in black and white respectively, and performed “Why? (Keep Your Head Down)”, which was released last January. After the performance, the duo sent a message of thanks to their fans.
