Have A Blessed Thanksgiving from All of Us @ JYJ Fantalk

As We Celebrate Thanksgiving


In 1863, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day. the purpose was to give:

“Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”

Thanksgiving has been observed in the United States as a national holiday since that time. It is a revered major holiday due to the emphasis upon faith, family, and friends.

          We’re traditionalist, and Thanksgiving is still our favorite holiday of the year. “Why”,you might ask? Thanksgiving is the least commercialized major holiday, well, it was–Black Friday has taken a foothold.

Traditionally, Thanksgiving is about family and food. There are a few things to purchase here and there, such as decorations for the table and mantle–but generally Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, and giving thanks for Blessings throughout the year, There is food on our tables, and hopefully, love surrounding us all. We must not neglect to pray and help to provide for those who do not have homes or families. Prayers are going up for those in despair and bondage this Thanksgiving season, and we are grateful for the generosity and benevolence that our Guys do.

The weather in the United States has taken us all by surprise. We went from summer into winter. The entire nation is experiencing extreme weather this holiday season, and other places in the world, such as Indonesia, are being struck by earthquakes and disasters. So many people are spending Thanksgiving in shelters and away from loved ones and home.

Thanksgiving may be disliked by some because of it’s perceived connection to early roots of oppression at the beginning of America’s journey as a nation, but if there is a concerted effort to turn bad to good in which good triumphed–Thanksgiving is a prime example. It’s not about the turkey or the dressing, it is about saying “Thank You” to God for the life and breath that are in you to continue in this world and to possess the treasures that we can have while here.

You are on this website because of a mutual treasure that we all share and enjoy–our Boys and their Music. Happy Thanksgiving, because they are a part of our personal world that are not negotiable. Mr’s Jaejoong, Yunho, Yoochun, Junsu, and Changmin–Happy Thanksgiving!!!  2014 has provided even more things to be thankful for–dramas, musicals, movies, and individual activities all over the world. We have a new JYJ album and Asian and Japanese tours–not to mention some downright funky music all of our Guys have produced this year.

Even though we may celebrate this holiday at a different time of the year, we are grateful to share the blessings that you give us, and we pray that we are somehow blessing you in return. We look forward to the Holiday season.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE !!!!  May The Blessings of The Season Be Yours!!!

Thank You for visiting JYJ Fantalk.

[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?

Happy Birthday to Thatmelancholysoul from Mommy Cha

 Happy Birthday to thatmelancholysoul from Mommy Cha

I can remember the first time that I laid eyes on you. You were blue, and a team of doctors and nurses were fighting for your life. Thankfully, through God’s grace, they won, and I was able to hold you in my arms. You have always been my most curious one; the one who questions everything; and my music and dance companion. If I were to define you I would say that you are multi-faceted and multi-talented. What you choose to put your mind, time, and effort into becomes a positive reality. It is in the choosing that you must display the most wisdom–because every moment spent in pursuit of a goal is a lost moment if the goal is not attained.

You have endless potential my Dear, and life is beckoning you to explore and conquer. I can remember being your age and the things that I wanted to do– imaginable and unimaginable things. The horizon was vast and many pursuits beckoned. Art college came first–then an art career. BB, [Before Babies], I was content with graphics, but after your sister and then you were born–I somehow gained a different perspective on life.  I discovered that I enjoyed children so much that my next pursuit became teaching–a pursuit I still engage in. Over time, I have taught everything from kindergarten to college; from church school to public education; infancy to geriatrics–and I have enjoyed them all. I have had a wonderful life filled with teaching and learning with and from you and your sister. Surprisingly, young people can teach their elders a thing or two. It is the young who face challenges head on and refuse to give quarter. It is the young who look for possibilities before impossibilities.

I guess I could say that I hold you responsible for introducing me to the world of J-Pop and K-Pop. First came Super Junior. I struggled so hard to remember [much less pronounce] each member’s name, and I danced many times with you to ‘Sorry, Sorry’. For a while we were unaware of any other K-pop groups until the day that you discovered ‘Mirotic’ while surfing on Youtube. That is the day that DBSK became a part of our existence. I was immediately fascinated by their dancing and singing abilities, and I can remember spending hour upon hour learning everything that I could about the group and its members. I learned to talk on the blogs and forums, and gradually became solidly supportive of Jaejoong, Yunho, Yoochun, Junsu, and Changmin. I was attracted by their musicality and their personalities. For a while I struggled because I couldn’t understand why, I, a classic music teacher, gospel singer, songwriter, wife, and mother of two grown daughters, would enjoy listening to this music. For some reason it both soothed me and challenged me to explore beyond my everyday music parameters. Hence came that immediate Mommy, agape love for the members of DBSK. If it seems as if Super Junior paled in comparison, not so, I still enjoy their music and their antics. What was most surprising, however, was that nurturing spot that DBSK immediately occupied. I became a Momma Bear, ready to defend if needed. Sadly, it would be needed.

There are happenings in life that defy description. One such happening was the split of DBSK. 2010 became a remarkable year that smelled of change on the wind. Many were confused and frightened, including the members, and in an effort that would take strength from us all, the Five became Three and Two. As a family, we stood in the position of distressed observer, never abandoning any member, but with a spirit that knew deep down that things would never again be the same. This didn’t mean that hope was abandoned, but reality dictated that change was inevitable. We fought with everything in us to maintain the faith, and we still fight for the hope that someday these friends and brothers will be able to sit down and enjoy quality time together. It is no longer about the music or the companies–it is about the friendships.

So now, thatmelancholysoul, how does this in any way relate to your Birthday? Why have I written this narrative in this way? It is because I want to see you fight just as hard to be who you are despite all the obstacles and oppositions that life can mete out. It isn’t even about who’s right or wrong–it is about seeking the truth that will set you free to pursue goals that are beneficial to you and to those around you. It is about hanging in there when everyone else says that it is time to give up. It is about clinging to hope when it seems as if hope has abandoned you. Word to the wise–hope never will abandon you as long as you cling to hope because hope is in Christ.. It is in realizing that faith and hope are the underpinnings through GOD’s Holy Spirit that keep you stable in a world full of instability.

You are now an adult making adult decisions and entering this arena called life. Think deeply about things; meditate on things; then trust your spirititual instincts. …”Whatever things are pure, think on these things”….

I will always love you, thatmelancholysoul, with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength because I am striving to be made in the image of Christ.  I do not expect perfection…I only ask you to strive for it.

Love, Mommy

[Trans] The Split from DBSK – “The JYJ” Mag

[Trans] The split from DBSK – “The JYJ” Mag

That Incomparably Cold Summer

Even though it is not a must to say this, but for me in the past, I’ve also longed for people’s understanding on what I want and what I wish to say. Even though we didn’t know when we had to wait until, it was very obvious that it was not now. Eventually catching up with “happiness” and searching out “dreams”, our footsteps were once so heavy, and so fearful in the face of the bleak future. But for the sake of that perfect “happiness” and “dreams”, it seemed we could shake off the heavy footsteps and fear. And this is how, with the name JYJ, we formed.

The Story Kept in the Bottom of the Heart

In the summer of 2009, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu decided to forsake everything they owned in their position. Popularity and money are no longer important. If what they once had was everything, there is no way to stride forward with heavy and darkened hearts. No longer yearning for anything other than happiness and dreams. Having two persons firm and determined by the side is the only source of strength and comfort. When the world out there and people in the industry pour out wild speculations, ill-intentioned rumours and negative remarks, the only thing to do is to be silent. The criticisms that surfaced, even unspeakable thoughts and rumours, they can only be swallowed into the stomach, and also given no response. Actually, that is just “spitting at me”, just that we didn’t understand this principle at that time.

“We were also very troubled, but Changjoo-hyung asked us to endure for a while, everything will be fine after the lawsuit is concluded. If we respond to everything, things will just snowball (get bigger and bigger). If we endure, it will be over quickly. If this small matter drags for a long time, it will be tough. Try to take comfort and go though our days that way. Even though it is a tough period, but other than enduring and enduring, there is no other way.” That incomparably heartbreaking summer in 2009, recalling that past, the 3 members became silent. Any matter will become faded over time, but they are still unable to stop sighing.

One Day, the Truth will be known

At that time, rumours say that the problem with cosmetics is the start of the dispute, but that is definitely just a small fraction that has nothing to do with the problem itself, members have been firm on this stand.

“Even we ourselves have no idea how much have we earned exactly. Even if we account in a simple way, how many CF did we shoot, how many albums did we sell, were this told to us. But our earnings were of no big difference from the past. Even if sales figures increased, we would be told that expenses increased as well, we have nothing to say. The biggest problem is the 13-years duration of the contract. Even if military service years are deducted, it will be until 35 years old. In our activities, getting to sleep 2 hours daily is a luxury, be it physically or mentally, we are drained. There is no chance to meet friends because we are working everyday. Everyone says that this is the price to pay for being a star, earning money and fame, there are gains and losses. Other than losing everything continuously, what other choices are there?” (Kim Junsu)

Forsaking Everything for the sake of the Future

Once again, the memories of the 3 men are recalled. This cannot continue; determined, they made the decision to forsake everything. At that time, the group that they belonged to (DBSK) was holding a tour in Japan for 50,000. Ascending to the dream stage of Tokyo Dome, they are mega stars indeed, yes, DBSK was the example for all Asia singers, the idols of fans.

Everyday, they were writing new records. At this point, the 3 of them resolved in determination and took action. “Expressing the desire to leave the company at the peak of popularity would be more controversial.” “It is not effective to leave the company when we are no longer popular. Leaving at normal times, people might say that our health is bad, idols that are not envied by others say that they have no other choice, ‘there must be some reason why they do this’ – only then would people think this way,” JYJ said unanimously.

Both Korea and Japan zoomed in and reported about them, as it charted a new page in the history of hallyu artistes at that time, comments by all parties involved received a lot of attention. Kim Junsu said, “Within a short time, we became the focal point of attention, it was scary; not sinners but felt afraid to go outdoors. Photos of my parents were masked and flashed on TV news, as though we’ve become convicts, the pressure increased everyday. In the end, we had a disorder.” In their determination, their inability to safeguard the promise of “5 will never separate” is the greatest regret in many fans’ eyes. But it is them who suffered more pain. They could only comfort themselves that everyone has his own path to walk.

It is a decision that makes the bleak future even more uncertain, but they would not be shaken easily. There are many people who are pretending to be “on your side” but in actual fact, they are trying to test or even sow discord. The 3 of them became more and more reduced, having only one another. There are also large agencies that promised to give them millions of contractual remuneration as pricey baits, but they did not waver, did not waver at all. “It is a realisation that even if there is no way to be singers again, the future will get better.” If there is no way to continue in this path then “go to the countryside and find a plot of land to grow sufficient vegetables to live on, and live that way.” Because they have such firm resolutions, there is no frustration. Unknowingly, fear and a sense of insecurity diminished bit by bit, there are no such feelings now.

Having Members by the side is the Sole Comfort

War started from that time. Even though it was a summer hotter than all others, but to them, it was harsh winter season.

Especially with biased opinions all around them, it was more like cutting their hearts with knives cruelly. It was a very tough period for everyone. “Hwaiting!” also failed to be of any comfort.

Because of depression, it was even more grueling for Kim Junsu.

“Only managed to persevere because I have the members. When 3 of us meet and talk, depressing knots are untied. Because we were all ill together, it was bearable.”
