[TRANS] 140610 Ohn Joowan Says, “Even I, As A Dance Instructor In SM, Had So Much To Learn From U-Know Yunho”

Actor Ohn Joowan (31), who is a former dance instructor of SM Entertainment recently opened up about his experience working with TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho (28, Jung Yunho).

Newsen met with the actor in a cafe in Nonhyun-dong, and he began reminiscing of his days as a dance instructor in SM.

Regarding the fact that he used to teach trainees, including TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho, while working in SM Entertainment, Ohn Joowan stated, “10 years ago, there were about 10 trainees in SM who I was in charge of teaching. I’m sure that there are others in that group other than U-Know Yunho who ended up becoming singers. Back then, they were just kids who were around thirteen or fourteen years old.”

As a graduate of Seoul Institute of the Arts, Ohn Joowan was once more passionate about dancing than becoming an actor. He said, “I’ve been dancing since I was in my second year of middle school. Dance was the only thing that didn’t make me feel stressed out. Just like that kid in ‘Billy Elliot’, I was happy when I was dancing.”


He continued to say, “The dance style that was popular when I was in middle school was b-boy dancing. In the suburbs, contemporary dance was rare but there was a lot of information and resources on b-boy dancing. I also had a lot of friends who wanted to do it too, so I started out with b-boy dancing.”

Ohn Joowan added, “When I became a high school student, I came up to Seoul with the thoughts, ‘I really like dancing, so I should learn at least one more style’ and ‘I really want to try contemporary dancing, not just moves you can pick up on the street’. I came and took lessons on jazz and contemporary styles of dancing. That’s when I decided that I wanted to apply for contemporary dance as my major.”

When asked, “Were you the reason why U-Know Yunho is able to dance so well?” he replied by saying, “No, no. Yunho’s always been much better at me in certain dance styles. I would show up to teach him, and I would always learn poppin’ dance from him.”

Ohn Joowan also stated, “We shared a special connection through our love for dance, not just as a student and teacher. We didn’t really talk that much because we could communicate through our dance moves. When I see these young trainees, I can see just how hard they must have worked to get where they are.”

He also added, “When I was a student at the Seoul Institute of the Arts, U-Know Yunho came for his college entrance exam. This was before Yunho made his debut as a member of TVXQ, and he came up to me and said, ‘Hey, teacher’. That’s when we got to know each other again. We still contact each other quite often.”

[News] 140414 BoA thanks TVXQ’s Yunho for his cameo on “Make Your Move”


BoA has expressed her gratitude to TVXQ’s Yunho, who made a cameo in her Hollywood movie, “Make Your Move”, through the showcase “BoA’s Love Letter” at CGV Cheongdam in Seoul.

“I thanked Yunho for appearing as a cameo. He came to America and quickly memorized the choreography to film his part. I wanted to buy him a meal, but failed to do so since he was busy and immediately left after finishing his part. I want to thank him for showing a good performance even he was very busy,” said BoA.

In “Make Your Move”, Yunho made a cameo as a famous club dancer, which attracted attention with a perfect 100% poppin skill. He will also show off his dance moves with his unreleased solo song, which increase the anticipation among fans. TVXQ also participated in the OST for the movie, in the track “Runnin’ On Empty”.

“Make Your Move” is a romantic dance movie starring BoA and ballroom dancer Derek Hough. The movie will be premiered in Korea on April 17 and on April 18 in the United States.

[Info] 130910 The Music: EXCLUSIVE Interview with Duane Adler of “Make Your Move 3D”


Duane On Set – (Left to Right) Will Yun Lee, Jefferson Brown, Rich Ting, and Derek Hough

Below is Part III of a 4-part interview with Duane Adler, the screenwriter and director of Make Your Move 3D.

If you missed Parts I and II, you will definitely want to catch up here and here. Enjoy Part III below. :-)

Part III – The Music

Make Your Move Fans: The casting of Yunho in a cameo role has created quite a sensation. How did you decide to include him in the film?


Yunho Rehearsing in Korea

Duane: I’ll be honest, the casting of Yunho was our partner SM Entertainment’s idea! They first suggested he do a cameo because he’s such an amazing dancer and performer, and they knew he would attract attention to the movie in parts of Asia. I had been to the SM Town concert at the Staples Center in October of 2010 (that’s actually where BoA and Derek first met!), and I saw TVXQ! perform live.


Staples Center During a SM Town Concert-the night that BoA and Derek first met.

During their number, Yunho had this spectacular solo that I thought was one of the closest performances I’d ever seen to Michael Jackson. He was incredible. So once SM suggested him, I loved the idea, but the logistical part of getting him in the movie was going to be a challenge. We were shooting in Toronto and his schedule was super tight. Once we locked our shoot schedule, SM Entertainment worked hard to find a window in Yunho’s schedule where he could fly to Toronto. They found two days! He had only two days to be in and out of the city.


Yunho Rehearsing in Toronto with Napolean D’umo

NappyTabs created the choreography in Toronto, and they would upload it to Yunho in Korea, where he learned the choreography. But we were on such a tight schedule, if there had been any delays at the airport, we would have had to cut the number, because we only had that specific location for a specific time. Yunho arrived on Wednesday evening late in Toronto, and he went straight to the rehearsal studio with NappyTabs and our dancers, where he rehearsed for several hours with jet lag. The next morning, he reported to set early to shoot and just killed it.


Yunho in “Make Your Move 3D”

I’m not sure I’d ever seen a dancer work as hard as he did. Once I called cut, he would be ready to go again in a matters of moments. He was incredibly gracious to all our crew, who knew he was a big star in Korea, but no one really knew how big until he arrived on set – there was just this energy about him that was contagious. We’re lucky we have him in the film.

[TRANS] 130715 JYJ’s Kim Junsu, “It Was Fun And Exciting To Stand In Front Of A Camera For The First Time In 4 Years”



His second solo album showcase.. A Summer dance track ‘Incredible’

JYJ’s Kim Junsu (XIA, 26) has come back with his technicolor second solo album ‘Incredible’.

Kim Junsu held a showcase for 1,200 fans at the UNIQLO AX Hall in Seoul on the 15th. The day’s event was aired live through Melon and LoenTV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sa351v9k4g).

Having released his new album on various online music sites and iTunes, Kim Junsu performed a total of four songs, ‘Tarantallegra’ from his first album, and ’11 o’clock’, ‘I’m Sorry’, and ‘Incredible’ from the second album.

Appearing on a throne, the singer exuded an air of confidence and charisma for his rendition of ‘Tarantallegra’.He continued to sing ’11 o’clock’ a capella, till he was joined by a piano halfway through. ‘I’m Sorry’, which is a traditional ballad, captivated his fans with his husky voice.

Last of all, Kim Junsu walked on stage wearing the red jacket he donned in his music video and was joined by his neon-clad dance crew. He performed ‘Incredible’ for the first time, showing off his perfect live skills, unmarred by a difficult choreography. The song has a fun melody and strong beat, and showcases Kim Junsu’s powerful performance capabilities. As a collaboration with composer Automatic, who Kim Junsu worked with for his US single ‘Uncommitted’, ‘Incredible’ features a rap segment from Puff Daddy’s son Quincy Brown.


The music video was shot in a house in Malibu and is as refreshing as the song itself. When fans honed in on the kiss scene in the music video, Kim Junsu feigned ignorance as he said, “Oh, the kiss scene. Was that included?” He had everyone laughing as he said, “I just pretended to kiss her. I took on the ‘American mindset’. Whether it actually happened or not is up to your imagination. Then again, this is all just business…”

During the press conference that was held after the showcase, Kim Junsu said, “This is the first time in nearly four years that I stood in front of a camera (for a broadcasted show). Although it wasn’t on TV, it was still a broadcasted program and it was fun and exciting. I had a great time.” Kim Junsu has been unable to appear on broadcasted programs in the past due to his legal dispute with his former agency SM Entertainment.

Kim Junsu’s second album features a total of 12 tracks, including the pre-released track ’11 o’clock’. Kim Junsu participated in the composing, lyric writing and producing process of the album and showcased his maturity as a singer.

His second album features a variety of genres including dance, ballad, electronic, funk, neo-soul, R&B and acoustic. C-JeS Entertainment stated, “The composers who participated in this album all praised Kim Junsu for his musical abilities and value as a vocalist.”

Kim Junsu will be kicking off his Asia Tour with the release of his new album. Staring in Bangkok, Thailand on the 20th, he will hold concerts in Shanghai (28th), Seoul (August 3rd~4th), and Busan (10th, 11th).

[TRANS] 120728 TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho And BoA Go On Camera With No Make-Up On, “But They’re Still Gorgeous”

[TRANS] 120728 TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho And BoA Go On Camera With No Make-Up On, “But They’re Still Gorgeous”

U-Know Yunho and BoA appeared on camera without any make-up on.

During BoA’s comeback show ‘BoA 4354′ on the 28th, footage was aired of BoA practicing with U-Know Yunho, who was helping the singer out with her performance of ‘Only one’.

The two celebrities, who came together for a couple dance for the show, appeared on camera with no make-up on but their good looks still shone. Behind the stage, BoA looked at Yunho and said, “Yunho, I find myself able to really get into it when I dance with you.” But they burst into laughter as they described their relationship like “That of Tom and Jerry” as Yunho is too tall for her.

In the following performance of ‘Only one’, BoA and U-Know Yunho’s joking side seemed to have disappeared completely as they showcased an amazing couple dance that wowed the audience.

Meanwhile, BoA has released her seventh album ‘Only one’ and will be holding her comeback stage in SBS’ ‘Inkigayo’ with SHINee’s Taemin.
