Happy Birthday U-know Yunho: The Promise of Another Year Continues…

Happy Birthday Yunho:  Another Year’s Promise Is Here

yunhoghanahope7 Another year has passed in the life of U-Know Yunho–leader-sshi extraordinaire, friend, dancer, singer, and actor. Who is this ball of energy who seems to have the ability to do such a variety of things, including reaching into his heart and his resources to meet the needs of others? Yunho, you personify fatherhood and young wisdom, yet you also exude a certain vulnerability and naive playfulness that suggests that you have found a way to relieve the pressures of your everyday existence. You have always been one to shoulder everyone’s burden, but what about your burdens?

Early on, as a member of DBSK, you were assigned the leadership role. I can imagine trying to supervise those four extremely energetic, independent doers and thinkers, namely, Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu, and Changmin, I believe that Jaejoong helped you a lot, as they all probably did–but it still remained your role to see to tasks being performed, and to coordinate between upper management and the members. This was not a comfortable place to be. Middle-management has its own set of problems, and you could get caught in between the two. Your loyalties have to lie with both, and the “buck’ definitely stops at your house often. It takes great courage and strength to live in this way, but you have consistently managed to do this.

It doesn’t matter how much we speculate–the only ones who truly know why DBSK split are the actual parties involved. The question is do we truly need to know? I believe that truth and revelation are healers. Each member was and still is affected, and what utter devastation was caused among the fandom. Yet, In some ways it has strengthened the fandom and revealed true loyalties. I also believe that this strengthened each member. Adversely, it has created a climate for fan wars that eventually will be revealed as evoking unnecessary casualties.  Over-all, everyone receives the love if they choose to embrace it. .

Yunho, you are a human being. You hurt like we all hurt. Yet, you tend to hide that hurt until you are alone. This makes it hard to know what your needs are. As a caring community of people, and disregarding diverse loyalties arising out of the split–you occupy a singular position. You also occupy a unique place in our hearts. There is no one like you. As this year progresses, and you achieve more things born out of your own inner drive and perfectionist personality–I believe that you will surpass your own expectations. You have greatness in you; we have seen it all along–and I am praying that you will someday emerge as a guiding influence on the world around you. Seek profound truths, and let yourself be guided by what is truth.

I want to congratulate you on the 10th anniversary, on ‘Somefhing’ and TENSE, and on all of the recent awards and achievements, whether in conjuncture with Changmin or singly. You will continue to grow, and more responsibility will fall upon your shoulders. You are fast approaching your 30’s, the start of the most potentially productive years of your life. Choose your projects wisely, esteem those who are worthy of your esteem, always keep the faith, and know that you are loved…

[Info] 131226 TVXQ and JYJ Celebrate Debut Anniversary: 10 Years with Jaejoong, Yunho, Yoochun, Junsu, and Changmin


December 26, 2003- a day never to forget for fans of DBSK. I remember watching the BoA and Britney Spears Showcase knowing nothing of this five-member boy group before they sang the first versus of “Hug,” but after they were done wooing the hearts of females everywhere with their sweet voices and looks, I was fascinated. Then when I saw them sing live at one of the weekly music shows, I fell for them hook, line, and sinker. It was so rare then to see a group sing live AND dance at the same time during those days.

In 2008, December 26 was a day to remember fondly forever. Today in 2013, it is a day to remember with bittersweetness. DBSK now celebrates their 10-year anniversary as TVXQ and JYJ, and while I happily congratulate both groups, there is a corner of my heart that is still a bit sad.

Still, December 26 is the day to celebrate these five fantastic boys, excuse me, men, for their hard work and the music and enjoyment they have brought to world over the past ten years. Thank you, Changmin, Junsu, Yoochun, Yunho, and Jaejoong. It’s been a fantastic ten years. Here’s to ten more!

In honor of their 10th anniversary, TVXQ announced that they will be releasing their seventh album on January 6 next year, titled “Tense.” The title track is “Something,” and the TV commercial celebrating the anniversary and the upcoming release will be aired throughout the day today on SBS, KBS, and MBC.

JYJ also released a special video celebrating their 10 years and thanking fans

TVXQ is currently busy with their “Time Slip” concert at SMTOWN Week, holding shows on December 26 and 27. Jaejoong recently completed his “2013 Kim Jaejoong 1st Album Asia Tour,” Junsu is be holding his “2013 Xia Ballad & Musical Concert with Orchestra Vol.2” concert on December 30 and 31, and Yoochun will begin filming for the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “Three Days” in January.


Relive it!

DBKS’s debut performance, singing “Hug” at the BoA and Britney Spears Showcase on SBS.

DBSK’s “Hug” Music Video- Max with his cat, U-Know with his crooked teeth, Hero with his anime hair, Xiah before his “smile angel” days, and Micky with his shiny lips. Also, Go Ara looking so young!

A personal favorite- DBSK (THSK) singing their Japanese track “Bolero” live. I’ve watched this more times than I would like to admit.

Cassies! What are YOUR favorite memories of them?

[News] 130403 JYJ Huge Popularity Recognized in Streets of Japan, ‘Amazing Power’

[News] 130403 JYJ Huge Popularity Recognized in Streets of Japan, ‘Amazing Power’

Group JYJ was able to see and feel their overwhelming popularity throughout the streets of Japan.

Group JYJ was able to see and feel their overwhelming popularity throughout the streets of Japan.

Yesterday, JYJ began their ‘The Return of the JYJ’ Japan Tokyo Dome concert and met with 150,000 fans. The streets were covered in posters and videos played of the group as well.

Their agency stated, “At the April 3 concert at the Tokyo Dome, all 150,000 seats were sold out. Over 300,000 people had tried to reserve for this concert. JYJ has widened their spectrum as they have also started acting careers as well. They made their fan base even bigger after they became the first Korean group to hold a Europe and South America concert as part of their world tour.”

On the streets, not only were there posters, but also video footage from the member’s dramas playing on screens as well.

A Japan commercial agency stated, “Although today is a weekday, the streets are packed and JYJ’s concert has been sold out. They really are amazing artists.”

The producer in charge of JYJ’ concert stated, “JYJ’s perfect performance and amazing vocals have allowed them to be recognized more as artists than idols in Japan. It is rare to see a group be able to sing 26 live songs at a concert. This shows that all members of the group really do put in their 120% when performing.”

On the streets of Japan, traces of the Hallyu can also be seen as there are also specialized JYJ sections for advertisements.

JYJ’s concerts will also be broadcasted live in Japan theaters as well. For their last concert on April 4, it will be played live on a total of 113 different movie theaters in Japan.

One official commented, “This idea was thought up in order to allow fans who did not buy tickets to still be able to enjoy the concert.”
