[News] 131227 10 Year Anniversary JYJ’s Q&A

jyjayygirl

In commemoration of their 10 year anniversary, JYJ revealed their feelings and plans for 2014, saying “In the new year all three of us plan to perform together.” They recalled their memories from their past activities on C-JeS Entertainment’s homepage on the 26th.

JYJ wrote, “No matter what activity we had, we were asked the most questions about our 10 year anniversary. We remember every one of our “firsts,” including the first time we stood onstage together, the day of our first album release, our firm interview, and even our first performance. Throughout the past year, we’ve given a large number of answers. We feel very proud, and shared stories about ourself, about our members, and the times we’ve spent together. But now that the year is coming to an end, the one thing that rings loudly in our hearts about our anniversary is ‘thank you,’” and showed their gratitude towards their fans.

The following are Q&A’s with JYJ.

Q: What do we want to say to each other?

A: Now instead of thinking about myself, it’s more about the members that know me better than I know myself. It’s not enough to call them my brothers. It’s about us three!

Q: How can we sum up the past 10 years?

A: Thank you! is what we want to say. Especially for the undying passion and the ongoing trust that you’ve showed us. We’re really thankful. Even when we went through difficult times, when we faced new challenges, and when we were met with new worlds, we were filled with gratitude each passing day. We’re thankful for every little thing, and are even thankful for recognizing what a great thing it is to be thankful. No matter how many times we say it we don’t know how to fully express this heart of thanks.

Q: What do we want to say to our fans?

A: We’re connected by an invisible string. I think we’ve become increasingly close! We’re so grateful to our fans for cheering us on in every one of our activities, for commending us on a job well done, and for pouring out unconditional love all the time! Thank you for cheering for not only our music but as individual persons, and for supporting our youth. You always make us smile. Doesn’t it seem like every one of our meetings help us deepen our understanding of each other? We want to make up for that heart, and are committed to working hard to do our best!

Q: What will our future look like in 10 years?

A: No matter what it looks like, we will be together, and want to play you our music. Even if that time comes, we will still be fearless in face of a new challenge. We will deepen our colors as human beings, and will always give thanks and stay humble.

Q: What are our plans for 2014?

A: We want to promise you this. As JYJ we will show you the three of us standing on one stage! We will definitely show you! We ask that you continue to look out for us in our solo activities. We love you!

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

jyjdbsktvxq10years

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?

TRANS] Esquire November Issue – HERO, Jaejoong Is Finally Free At Last

Kim Jaejoong has the names of the other two JYJ members tattooed on his spine. They may actually be the wings that set him free.

This is your first photoshoot for a magazine spread in a while since India. How was it?
It was fun. And moving.

What have you been doing?
I’ve been preparing my album. Working on new music brought up some old memories. I wrote about 80% of the lyrics of the album, and I was reminded of those memories while writing the lyrics. I seem to be very sentimental these days.

(He cried during the photoshoot. Photographer Mok Na Jung stated that this was the first time a photoshoot model’s tears brought her to tears herself.) So back there….
Yes. It was because I suddenly got a little emotional.

I think the magazine will be released right before your album.
It’s a rock album. Before, I wanted to express the rock genre as best as I could, so I sang a lot of music that only rock-manias might like. This time, I’ve diversified my music a lot. There’s some Euro-pop, and Canadian and American rock, rock music that I can call my own and Korean rock that you hear a lot in the Korean music industry… It’s an album that combines all of these music styles together. It’ll also feature a wide range of musicians as well. From Yoon Do Hyun to B2ST’s Yong Jun Hyung, and Ha Dong Gyun. I think a lot of people are going to like the album because it’ll feature a lot of genres and lots of collaborations with other singers. People who like rock music will especially like it.

It seems as though you not only focused on your capacity as a rocker, but the Korean sentiment as well.
I incorporated the message of love into my entire album. From the heart-pounding and trembling emotions that arise in the beginning stages of a relationship to the feelings of letting someone go or breaking up with them. All the feelings you experience from beginning to end in a relationship are included in the upcoming album. I think I’m going to incorporate a lot of these emotions into my performances during my concerts as well.

Rock is a difficult genre. I know nothing about it. When and how did you get into rock music?
JYJ sing pop music. Though we sing pop music as a group, I wanted to differentiate myself a little during my solo activities. And I wanted to do something that I really liked and wanted to do. My train of thought ended there and I was reminded of rock music, a genre that I’ve loved since I was a little kid. For my first album, I didn’t want to be hated by the people who love traditional rock music. I told myself that if I was going to do this, I should go all the way, and luckily, it was received well by rock musicians. That’s why I was able to receive so many tracks to put in the new album. I wanted to create music that had a definitive sound, but also had a melody that the general public would enjoy.

You’ve held lots of concerts. If only we could see you singing on TV as well.
Of course, we really want to show ourselves on TV as much as we can. We’re trying as best as we can. But the situation we face is a bit…

Haven’t things changed these days?
Well, there was the verdict of our lawsuit and all, but…

Anyway, I really enjoy your acting. I fell in love with your work in .<Sunao Ni Narenakute>.
I enjoy acting, and I’m looking at my career in the long-run. Those who started off their careers in the acting industry may not see me in a favorable light when I say this, but I’m not really willing to put everything on the line for my acting career. Right now, I’m at the stage where I just want to be an actor because it’s fun and I’ve discovered the charm of acting although I’ve only just begun. I’d like to try acting in a small-scale play, if I ever get the chance to. I want to be more serious about my work.

Your sincerity can definitely be felt already. The characters you’ve played till now weren’t really that cool. They were either timid or a little weird. It was surprising to see you trying out a historical role as well.
The best thing is something you’re good at. But before that, I think what’s important is to experience a lot of things rather than doing well right off the bat. I believe that experiencing a wide range of characters now will be the foundation of becoming a great actor ten to twenty years from now.

You’re the first generation and original Hallyu stars of Korea.
No, that’s NRG…

… I heard that there’s a temple in Thailand dedicated to you… How do you feel about that?
The people who like me as a singer and the people who like me as an actor are a little different. And within those groups are people who like me for who I am as Kim Jaejoong. The fact that so many people place their expectations and support in me is all I need, and I feel grateful to have it.

By the way, I was so surprised when I saw you today. Have you always been this skinny?
I’ve been trying to put on some weight, but maybe it’s because I’ve gotten older? ‘Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to bring up your age.’ When I was younger, I was quite muscular so whenever I worked out, results would show up immediately. But it’s not easy to do that anymore. If I were to think of it positively, I’d say that I’m glad to be skinny instead of gaining weight and getting pudgy.

(I’m sure he was looking at my belly) I’m jealous. You have a better body than your fans.
It’s a source of stress for me.

You’re in your late twenties now. Are you frugal about spending money?
I’ve got some things going on here and there, shall I call them investments? I have my bag brand, and my coffee shop and my izakaya with Yoochun.

Izakaya? Where?
It’s located around the Hakdong intersection.

(Isn’t that near my house?) Where’s that?
If you go into the alley where Bennigans is at the Hakdong intersection, it’s called Bum’s story.

(My old job was located in the building right next to Bum’s story. It’s true) My name ends in ‘Bum’. So whenever I used to have a drink there, I’d call the place my home.
But I don’t think I’d last if I had rushed into my investments with the sole purpose of making money. Nowadays, my goal is to focus more on specialization. I must have investments that last and make money if I want to move on to greater things. Doesn’t everyone feel the need to do something right if they’re going to start something at all?

You have a great sense of fashion.

Since G.D. came around.

Shall I call it a style of your own? Something like that.
I don’t really have a particular style that I’m set on. I wear anything and everything. From tracksuits to jeans and a t-shirt. But there are times when I like to go over-the-top and dress up.

I think it’s important to have a great sense of fashion if you’re an actor or a rocker.
I think the fashion of a rocker reflects that person’s state of mind. A person can have the aura of a rock star, even if he hasn’t washed his hair and is walking around in shorts and slippers. Like how Kim Bada or Yoon Do Hyun have this special something, even though they’ve done nothing but put a pair of sunglasses on. It’s not something that can be achieved solely by one’s sense of fashion.

What is the spirit of rock music exactly? Is it really an expression of rebellion like most people think it is?
If K-pop is a song written into a set melody, rock is music where voices cracking and singing off-key aren’t a big deal. That’s what I like about it. That’s freedom. I can’t fully express in words the feeling of letting all your stress go by hitting those high notes. Happiness, sorrow, despair. You are only free when you’re able to express all these emotions through the sound of rock music.

Let’s talk about love, the theme of your album. Family first.
I feel bad. I know that my family are a great source of strength for me because they are people who will love me, no matter what I do. But I never feel like I’m able to fully repay them for everything they give me. My family prefers the little things like an extra phone call, text message or visit, over success, but I haven’t been able to do those things often.

The opposite sex, women, marriage.
I think my ideal woman changes depending on what I’m chasing after. What I want in my partner changes depending on what stresses me out, and what makes me happy. I used to have a set standard when I was younger, but not anymore. It changes depending on where I am and how I’m feeling. I don’t really care about age gaps either.

Are you able to overcome break-ups well?
It depends on how I’m feeling at the time of the break-up. Break-ups are so much harder when it was a serious relationship or if it took a while to become a couple. Wouldn’t that mean that break-ups are easier if a relationship was more casual?

You have the names of Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu, the other members of JYJ, tattooed on your spine.
It’s a very meaningful thing for me. Tattooing something on your body means you want to keep that something with you forever.

When did you get it done?
When JYJ was formed. We were dreaming the same dreams and making them come true; they are the friends who endured the biggest pains and changes of my youth with me, so I will never regret my decision to get it done. Even if my grandson asks me about it when I’m much older, I’ll never feel embarrassed to explain it to him. Memories fade little by little as time goes by. It makes me happy to think that whenever I see the tattoo, forgotten memories will rise to the surface of my mind and I’ll be able to share those memories with my children.

What do you do when you’re with the other members?
All we need is for the three of us to be together. Nothing else really matters. Just having them near me gives me strength. If I didn’t have them, I’d probably die. When you have a good friend, it doesn’t really matter how many times you see them in a year. I see Hyun Joong – Kim Hyun Joong – once or twice a year, but if anyone asked me who my three best friends are, he’d be on the list. Junsu recently texted me and asked, ‘What are you up to these days?’ and it made me feel really happy when I read it. I wanted to take a screenshot of it and upload it on my SNS account.

You must be grateful that the three of you are all doing well in your respective fields as individuals, as well as when you’re in a team.
For example, let’s say that Yoochun is partaking in solo activities and I’m not. He would split some of the money he earned through his activities with the rest of us. It’s been a while since we started doing that, and we have no complaints about it. It’s because money isn’t our objective. I’m not saying that I don’t need to work since I get money anyway. Instead, it works as a form of motivation to make me work harder because I’ll think, ‘This guy is working so hard and helping me out, so how could I possibly not pick up the slack?’ I can’t fall into idleness, can I? Through the process of growing as JYJ, we’ve formed a healthy relationship where we become a source of strength and motivation for each other.

We’ve talked about family, the opposite sex, friends and your members. Now let’s talk about the love you may have for yourself? Do you love yourself a lot?
I do. And it gets more intense when I feel tormented. Of course, the torment itself hurts me a lot. But what pains me more is the fear that I’m hurting those around me through the pain that I feel.

It’s been 10 years since your debut in 2004. What would the last 10 years say to the next 10 years of your life?
I feel as though my age is just a number, nothing more. It’s meaningless to already be choosing what I’ll be doing when I’m thirty, or even what I’ll be doing next year. I just like who I am right now. I really do. So much that I sometimes regret why I didn’t realize this sooner. When I play, I play hard and when I work, I work hard. I’ve begun to realize that happiness comes from expressing myself like this, and letting myself go once in a while. In the past, I’d cry and keep it all locked inside of me when no one was looking, so I’d see things in a distorted perception. The freedom I feel now has helped a lot with that.

So it would be right to say that the past 10 years have been a happy time for you?
Of course. But there are times when I look back and feel disappointed at myself for not realizing sooner that I could have been even happier.

Do you have any final remarks?
I want this to definitely be included in any article written about me. There exists a thread that one must never forget when talking about our fans, JYJ and me. We feel as though we’ve received the love of our fans for a longer time than other celebrities because that thread exists, and it gives us the motivation to work harder. Please, never tire and never let go of that thread, no matter what. Even if we grow and change….

[TRANS] 131015 JYJ’s Kim Junsu Dominates Japan, ‘Incredible’ Long Lines On A Weekday To Buy His MD Goods

junejapanmdgoods

The excitement for JYJ’s Kim Junsu (XIA)’s second album Asia tour is hotter than ever.

C-JeS Entertainment stated, “The response that Kim Junsu has received for his first Japanese solo tour is amazing. There were approximately 60,000 seats available for his Nagoya and Yokohama concerts, and more than three times that number of people applied for tickets with all seats selling out before the show. His popularity in Japan was proved yet again when fans began queuing from the early hours of the morning to buy MD goods ahead of Kim Junsu’s concert on the 14th.”

junejapanmdgoods1

They continued to add, “The fans who were coming to watch the Yokohama concerts began queuing extremely early because they heard that the MD goods had been sold out in Nagoya. This may be because only one MD good can be bought per person. Though all concerts of Kim Junsu’s Japanese tour were held on a weekday, Japanese fans packed Yokohama’s busy streets to show their support for Kim Junsu on his first solo tour.”

The Japanese fans themselves expressed their satisfaction with the concert. Keiko Yamada (36) of Osaka stated, “I was sad that we couldn’t see Kim Junsu in Japan the last time he held a tour. I’m so happy that he’s here this year. Kim Junsu’s music has a sincerity that touches the heart. It was such a moving experience that I could never properly express in words.” Aimee (24) of Saitama said, “Kim Junsu sang ‘Tsubomi’ and said he’d come all the way here to see us. I could feel just how much he cares for his fans. I hope he will be able to release a full-length album in Japan soon.”

A representative stated, “There were many middle and high school students who had come to buy MD goods. Though he has been inactive in Japan for the past 3~4 years, Kim Junsu has been able to attract new fans with his albums. The fandom continues to expand as the years go by.”

The hottest musicals that are set to make their debut this year are ‘Wicked’ (Korean), ‘December: The Song That Hasn’t Ended’ and ‘Ghost’. All three will be making their debut in the Korean industry for the first time. Considering the fact that it’s difficult to gauge how good a musical is if it’s never been shown before, it’s natural for musical lovers to be skeptical about these productions. Because of this, ‘Wicked’ is obviously the favorite of the list with a 96% ticket reservation rate (Interpark), attracting 200,000 people in the shortest time ever. Musical columnist Jung Da Hoon stated, “It’s not easy to guess the success level of a debuting musical,” and “Considering the fact that ‘Wicked’ has a storyline and music that has already been recognized, many are excited for it.”

‘Ghost’, which comes all the way from the 5-trillion Won industry of the UK’s West End, stands out as having a well-built storyline, which is familiar as the movie the musical is based on was released in Korea in 1990. The original movie’s popularity and familiarity are the greatest weapon of ‘Ghost’.

‘December’ is in the most unfavorable position as it has never been shown before. However, it has more than enough up its sleeve to come out on top. Bringing in Kim Junsu, who has the biggest ‘ticket power’ in the industry, and teaming him up with Kim Kwang Seok’s music. The smart choices made by NEW, the movie production company making its debut in the musical industry with the upcoming production, have proven that ‘December’ is a force to be reckoned with. Many representatives in the industry have voiced their opinion that in terms of competitiveness of cast members, ‘December’ comes out on top though ‘Wicked’ has Ok Joo Hyun and ‘Ghost’ has Joo Won. Some are saying that having Kim Junsu on the cast list is enough to guarantee success. Musical columnist Park Jung Hwan stated, “Kim Junsu, who has the greatest ticket power in the musical industry, and Kim Kwang Seok’s music have teamed up,” and “The synergy those two will create is astronomical.”
