Starting from today, there will be three days of lives at the Nagoya ・ Nippon Gaishi Hall!

The happenings of the first day. As the rehearsals ended without incident, suddenly the Happy Birthday tune sounded, and a congratulatory message for the staff born in January the monitors at the back of the stage. A cake was brought out as well, and after the candles were put out, Yunho and Changmin ran forward with cake in their hands and went to one staff member…. The staff that they flung the cake at was covered in fresh cream. (Laughs)

Also, at the waiting rooms, while there has always been delicious hot food being catered, today, the staff prepared Hitsumabushi which the members love, for them!

The photo below is of Changmin’s Hitsumabushi before he ate it.

It has been found that JYJ’s Park Yoochun was questioned as a reference with regards to a violation against the Ships Safety Act.

Through a phone conversation with Issue Daily on the 26th of January, a representative of Park Yoochun’s agency explained, “The commissioned business that was put in charge of Park Yoochun’s yacht is currently being investigated because they irresponsibly did not fulfill their contract and thus missed the deadline for their safety management inspection,” and “Park Yoochun was only questioned as a reference as he is the owner of the yacht and he has no direct association with the current issue at hand.“

A representative of the Korean Coast Guards’ South Regional Headquarters also stated, “An article was released with information that even we didn’t know. We will be sure to make an inquiry to YTN to find out what channel this article was released through.”

Today, YTN made a false report that Park Yoochun was booked by the Korean Coast Guard’s South Regional Headquarters for violating the Ships Safety Act by not holding a safety management inspection for his yacht.

(cr:na_ta_song999) Yunho made a mistake during the first part of "Weep". He was saying "I made a mistake" xD

(cr:na_ta_song999) Today again, Yunho's solo was the best!! To the right, left, forward, forward, he was thrusting his hips, irresistible..

(cr:na_ta_song999) Yunho did the "matchstick" that Kusanagi (T/N: SMAP) taught him.

(cr:na_ta_song999) Changmin said "Let's go on to the next song before a man in the audience throws us something."

(cr:na_ta_song999) Changmin ate Hitsumabushi two times today.

(cr:na_ta_song999) Yunho & Changmin's memories of last year was that they performed in "Pikaru no Teiri"

(cr:na_ta_song999) Changmin said during the encore that the power of Hitsumabushi has gone. And, he said he was hungry.

(cr:na_ta_song999) Yunho again today, had his hair (of his left side) on his ear, he was so cool. I screamed so much, my voice became hoarse

(cr:na_ta_song999) Yunho said "Dera arigato (T/N: Thank you very much) \(^o^)/ He was using Nagoya dialect!

(cr:0mabukikyara, a fan boy) I was in the very front row, and Yunho was always watching me.

(cr:0mabukikyara, a fan boy) when i waved my hand, he waved back, he nodded his head..even if i didn't shout Yunho's name in the latter half, he was always looking at me.

(cr:ematw1) Changmin was out of breath during the MC after the dance song, and his talks didn't make sense. Hearing that, Yunho said "What are you saying~!" and hit Changmin's head xD

(cr:kirakirider) since Gaishi hall was previously called the "Rainbow hall", the shadows were in TONE color!! We made T for Tohoshinki \(^o^)/

(cr:kirakirider) Changmin was really tired at the last, he was really out of breath xDD Compared to that, Yunho doesn't lose his breath xDD

(cr:kirakirider) Changmin said he ate Hitsumabushi twice. He ate Hitsumabushi for breakfast, and when he came backstage, again, the Hitsumabushi was delivered. Yunho said words like "I got it! That's the reason why you are so tired."

(cr:changminseohyun) There were many men fans at the concert today! Sitting next to me was an old man, in the back was a man, and he was shouting "Yunho!" many times! Hearing that, Yunho was smiling^^ The old man next to me was saying "Tohoshinki" during the encore! I am so happy!

(cr:tvxq_u_my) Yunho was running everywhere in the venue, making eye contacts. I was sitting in the rear seat, sitting very far away, but I was not lonely!! Changmin was looking around the venue, too! Both of them really treasure the fans. Every one of us.

(cr:na_ta_song999) The color of today's encore T shirt was red.

(cr:na_ta_song999) Yunho said "jama monoha kieta (T/N: the annoying person has disappeared)", but nobody laughed. He did it a few times, but it wasn't well received.. omg

(cr:na_ta_song999) Before stage, Yunho was full of confidence that their "jama monoha kieta (T/N: the annoying person has disappeared)" will be well received by the fans, Changmin revealed on stage.

During tvN enews’ ‘Star’s CVs’, which began airing on the 16th of this month, we looked into everything about Park Yoohwan, one of the hottest rookie actors these days.

Park Yoohwan has been receiving much attention from the masses even before his debut as JYJ Park Yoochun’s ‘handsome younger brother’ Though he received the full ‘halo effect’ of having a celebrity brother when he debuted, he has succeeded in working hard and making his own mark as an actor through the role of ‘Nuna Babo’ Mun Kwon in ‘Promises of 1000 Days’.

During the episode, Park Yoohwan became a hot topic for revealing a CV that he had written by hand. The interviewer set out to ensure that Park Yoohwan had answered truthfully about his height and when he brought out a 177cm-tall cardboard cutout of the actor, it was confirmed that Park Yoohwan was indeed that tall without any shoe-lifts.

To the question, “Did you receive special treatment because your brother is a singer?”, Park Yoohwan gave the honest answer of, “I believe that I received more attention because my brother is a top star.” He then said, “Rather than giving me advice about acting, he monitors my work and gives me lots of advice on social life,” to the question, “Does your brother give you much advice on acting?”

When asked to say one flaw that his older brother possesses, Park Yoohwan gave a disappointed(?) smile and said, “His only flaw is that he obsesses about me. I wouldn’t hold back if he had any flaws, but he doesn’t.” He then showed his respect as he said, “I don’t feel that my brother’s a celebrity when we’re at home, but I get chills when I watch him perform at concerts. When I see him on stage, I think to myself, ‘This is how awesome he really is.’”

Aside from this, Park Yoohwan also talked about his dimples, which he believes are his best facial features, his favorite girl group member Hyuna and his first love in America.

Recent news on the possibility of TVXQ‘s reunion is sending shockwaves throughout the industry.

On January 22nd, a Japanese article titled, “Will Avex act as the savior? TVXQ’s reunion project” surfaced. It reported of rumors of a reunion concert at Tokyo Dome orchestrated by Avex, who was previously accused of hindering JYJ‘s Japanese activities. In light of Avex’s recent under-performing releases, it is said that they are willing to go head with this project and stop hindering JYJ’s Japanese activities. Japanese superstar Ayumi Hamasaki is rumored to be negotiating on behalf of both sides.

While the news of a possible reunion is being met with enthusiasm by fans all over the world, many are skeptical of the chances of such a reunion actually occurring. The fact that this reunion is being orchestrated by Avex instead of SM Entertainment is also a cause of skepticism.

The article goes on to state, “While the reunion of TVXQ is something that many fans are waiting, the small possibility of this actually happening is an indicator of Avex’s desperation,” hinting that Avex’s recent lack of success may be reason for pursuing such a unlikely project.

TVXQ fans responded to the news with, “While it would be great if reunion happens, it seems unlikely“, “They say Avex will lead the project but I can’t trust them“, and “I hope they stop writing these pointless reunion articles“.

Hallyu’s most affluent idol stars have raked in an impressive profit, not only with their album promotions, but also with various CFs, events, dramas, and more. Even more so now, with further promotions throughout the Asian continent.


Boy group JYJ who will become the first Korean artist to perform in Chile as well as Peru this March all have lavish pent houses to their names.

Kim Junsu lives in a detached townhouse in the Kyunggi-do region called ‘Winsle County’. The townhouse is separate from the main part of the home which his parents reside in.

He lives in close proximity to singer Lee Sora, and fans are calling the building, ‘the townhouse of the stars’. Junsu’s home is approximately worth $1.5 million US dollars.

Park Yoochun who is making his comeback with actress Han Ji Min in the new drama ‘Attic Prince‘ resides in an upscale villa located in the Hannam-dong region. The singer and actor has also raked in an impressive profit, filming dramas, CFs, promoting overseas and more, and this home is definitely well-deserved. He personally participated in designing the interior of the home.

Fellow member Kim Jaejoong also lives in a $2.6 million dollar penthouse located in the Samsung-dong district. His home comes with a terrace, and boasts over 3,200 sq ft.

The Ottogi GisMyun CF, which JYJ’s Park Yoochun appeared in as the CF model, achieved 1st place last month for advertising effectiveness.

According to Korea CM Strategic Studies Institute, GisMyun’s recorded a CPCM (cost per consumer mind) of 253 won last month. CPCM is a value projected by consolidating aspects such as the feedback of customers to the CF, advertising costs etc, and is one of the criteria in determining advertising effectiveness. The overall average CPSM for last month was 1621 won.

The GisMyun CF makes a pun on the words “Gis” and “Kiss”, and moves female hearts through JYJ’s Park Yoochun. Ottogi GisMyun is called “Kiss Myun” in English, and this special point and others are also featured in the CF.

(The CF) left a deep impression in the minds of consumers by using the lyrics of “Kiss Me Darling”, which is well-known, as the background music, then (changing the lyrics) to “GisMyun Darling”, which is similar in pronunciation. Coupled with the gentle image of the CF model, managed to garner good responses. This CF was ranked 1st place for CF effectiveness among the top 30. (T/N: the original article had this mistyped as 3rd place)

Today, we had the presentation for the CF which TVXQ will be appearing in. The cover photo and video…I am personally very satisfied with it. It’s like a movie… and seems like it will be able to present the image of the two celebrities well. Filming should be able to commence once the schedule is confirmed (I guess).

This product is prepared based on the experience that Missha has gathered over this period of time, and is a product that would have a competitive edge in the global market. But I think having a stable foothold in the local industry is the first step towards the global market. Because only when you are able to stand firmly in the local market, can you stand firmly in the overseas markets ke ke.

This is why (we are) thinking of holding large-scale preview screenings. Matters pertaining to this are also being negotiated…I hope that (we will) come to a good conclusion…and we plan to release the information on the Missha homepage at a later date.

For the fans who love TVXQ, please wait for warm spring when flowers bloom. You will see the best CF that no one in Korea has imagined…or even tried^^. (Why? Perhaps it’s because they do not have TVXQ)

ps) Since we’re making such big promises, we’ll do our very best~~
