JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong’s overwhelming popularity in Taiwan has been displayed.

It was revealed tickets for Kim Jae Joong’s independent fan meeting in Taiwan on May 23 were sold-out as soon as ticket sales opened.

The 2,500 seating fan meeting not only sold-out its tickets immediately upon the start of its sales, but this also caused the server to crash due to overwhelming traffic.

[NEWS] 120510 JYJ′s Park Yoo Chun Shines with Chameleon-like Acting

Park Yoo Chun has been praised by staff and viewers with his various styles of acting in Rooftop Prince.

On the 15th episode of SBS’s Rooftop Prince that aired on May 9, Yong Tae Mu (Lee Tae Sung) brings the real Yong Tae Yong from Canada to reveal that Lee Gak is not Yong Tae Yong.

After Chairman Jang (Na Young Hee) appoints Lee Gak as the CEO of the company, Tae Mu, fed by anger, arrives in Korea with an unconscious Tae Yong in order to reveal the true Yong Tae Yong. Finding out about this scheme, Lee Gak and his three subjects hide the real Yong Tae Yong elsewhere and Lee Gak takes the place of the unconscious Tae Yong on the hospital bed.

After the broadcast, staff and viewers sent overflowing praise to Park Yoo Chun, who showed a variety of emotions as he singlehandedly acted out the roles of Prince Lee Gak, the real Yong Tae Yong, the real Yong Tae Yong in coma, Lee Gak pretending to be Yong Tae Yong, as well as Lee Gak who shows power as the prince, affection as the lover, and humor with his subjects (are you guys still with us?).

Receiving all the praise, Park Yoo Chun replied, “Thank you to the viewers who took in all of those different roles without confusion and fell in love with all the characters. Although I am acting out all of these roles right now, the density of the character of Prince Lee Gak will get higher. There are only five episodes left, but there are a lot of stories to be told, so please keep anticipating.”

Meanwhile, having shown Tae Yong through a live broadcast, Tae Mu asks for reconsideration of the CEO position. However, at that exact moment, Tae Yong slowly gets up and calls out Tae Yong’s name, adding suspense to the drama. Rooftop Prince airs every Wednesday and Thursday night .

[NEWS] 120510 The Extremes Japanese Women Go To Because of Korean Dramas

From ‘Yonsama’ Bae Yong Jun of 2003 to ‘Keun-chan’ Jang Keun Suk of 2012, there seems to be no end to the Korean wave flowing across Japan. What is it about Korean dramas that make Japanese women fall for them?

On May 7, News Post Seven, a Japanese media outlet, revealed the workings of the Korean wave in Japan under the title ‘Of the Gallant Experiences of Three Women Crazy for Korean Dramas’.

The article talks about a woman who has been into the Korean wave for 10 years, a woman who went from anti-Korean-wave to a Korean drama fan and another who almost broke off her marriage because she loved JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun so much.

The first woman, who is in her 40s, first got into the Korean wave through Winter Sonata, and continued to fall for Lee Byung Hun, Kwon Sang Woo and Song Seung Hun. She especially once couldn’t seem to tell the difference between the drama world and reality, as she thought as soon as she saw the film A Moment to Remember, that Jung Woo Sung would be the last man in her life. She started learning the Korean language because of her obsession, and has been attending a Korean language institute for five years.

The next woman, in her early 40s, confessed that she was part of the anti-Korean wave ideologies, saying she ‘didn’t know how people who fell for Korean dramas felt.’ While watching the Japanese version of You’re Beautiful, however, she came upon the Korean version, and fell in love with Jang Keun Suk. She didn’t stop there; there was no escaping the grasp of Korean dramas. While watching Mary Stayed Out All Night she fell in love with Kim Jae Wook, and while looking for more pieces starring Kim Jae Wook, she came upon Coffee Prince and so on and so forth.

The last female almost broke off her marriage because of the Korean wave. This woman, in her early 30s, said, ‘I was a fan of JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun, but I fell in love with him even more after watching the drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I was engaged to my husband back then, but because I loved Yoo Chun so much, I couldn’t think of getting married.’ Her story ended in a happy ending, however, as she added, ‘Thanks to my tolerant husband I was wed, and now I’m happy as Yoo Chun’s fan and also as a wife.’
