JYJ has gotten back together again as the new face of the Korean cosmetics brand TONYMOLY.

While actively pursuing their solo activities on stage and TV, JYJ's Kim Junsu, Kim Jae-joong and Park Yuchun have been named the new face of TONYMOLY, C-JeS Entertainment said in a press release Monday.

Under the contract, JYJ members will be promoting the company's cosmetics products for the next 12 months throughout Asia, excluding Japan, and start to appear on TONLYMOLY's TV commercials and other advertisements starting this October.

"JYJ is without a question the most beloved Hallyu idol group in Asia. As TONYMOLY is seeking to expand our market abroad, we are expecting JYJ to help promote the firm's image," TONYMOLY Marketing Director Kim Seung-chul was quote as saying.

Girl group T-ara members were originally the faces of the brand, until they were allegedly rejected to extend the contract due to the long-lasting controversy over the "Hwa-young" incident and inappropriately coping with the public's anger.

Meanwhile, Actress Min-lyn is also on board as she penned her modeling contract with the firm last month.

In their interview with KpopStarz, TVXQ's Yunho and Changmin fondly reminisced about the road they took to get to where they are. Close to their heart are the memories of their Japan debut, the challenges they overcame, and the lessons they have learned along the way. They are one of the few idols who seem to have been chosen to try their luck in the Japan market at the height of their success in Korea. When one first gets to know this fact, the reality they faced then seemed cruel. However, that humbling experience is something they cherish.

Yunho shares, "When we first debuted in Japan, we were receiving a great deal of love in Korea. At first, it was very difficult for us in Japan. We went to a country, whose culture we have never experienced. It was a big challenge for us to learn their culture and work hard to show our uniqueness. The language was a large obstacle we had to overcome, but we never gave up. We thought of the people that love us and we genuinely worked hard, which resulted in the TVXQ of today. The fact that we received a great deal of love in Korea and had to start all over again in Japan, gave us a mindset of working hard. Due to that, TVXQ doesn't know how to give up."

Surely they didn't give up, and the tenacity they had paid off in the end, as they made it to the top of the elite Oricon chart. That success does not distract them though, as Changmin admits that in such "a place where no one recognized us, we were able to be humbled and return to days when we first started." He thinks the experience opened their eyes and mind to the world. More importantly, it was an experience that gave them an "opportunity where we were able to develop our individual skills" and allows them to see that "The world is larger than we think".

Still recently though, at the height of the issues thrown at them by circumstances, they hold certain memories important. For Yunho, being able to stand on stage again at the Tokyo Dome is something he would cherish for a long time. And the reason for that is "There were many people waiting for us and thinking of us, and it moved me, and made me cry for the first time." Seeing those people who stood beside them even when the times got rough makes TVXQ's leader more firm saying, "If I were to go back in time, there is nothing I would do differently. Those were the decisions I made, and every moment I worked hard, so there are no regrets".

Having stood on stage, also recently, at the Madison Square Garden, TVXQ is made to taste a tiny piece of a new dream - to make it to the US. Perhaps by now experts on charting unknown territories, Yunho views the US market as authentic. "If there is a good opportunity for us to debut in the U.S., I want to do it. If we were to debut in the U.S., we would have to learn the language and customs. We want to send out greetings with our style." Having seen how they have maintained their cool image, humble demeanor, Yunho and Changmin definitely have the raw material it takes to succeed in any market - given the right break someday.

(Young Pil, 10:21pm KST, 120914) @1215thexiahtic What is this… Have you forgotten what I did during the match with Samsung? You’re provoking me again~~ Have you forgotten that I blocked that penalty kick???
(Junsu, 10:22pm KST, 120914) @youngfeel When was that..? Sorry… I can’t seem to remember it… seriously
(You Joong, 10:27pm KST, 120914) @1215thexiahtic @youngfeel Let’s just take him out of the equation from the beginning for strategic purposes. Young Pil, it’s for the team so could you just be in Korea that day?
(Junsu, 10:30pm KST, 120914) @Songyoujoong @youngfeel Yes, hyung… We’ll tell everyone it was because of your back… Take a break… If we win, it will all be thanks to you…^^

(You Joong, 10:38pm KST, 120914) @youngfeel @1215thexiahtic I agree with our captain’s decision. While we’re at it, we should just remove Young Pil’s name from all overseas matches keke
(Junsu, 10:40pm KST, 120914) @Songyoujoong Hyung, just put Young Pil hyung’s name in just for the performances^^ I’ll take full responsibility for it
