This interview was a few weeks back, but I am posting this now because I found the English subs. Junsu did well here. He was articulate and thoughtful. He kept his composure although it was hard not to cry. Proud of you Mancub. Momma Cha
What a beautiful story. It reminds me of David and Bathsheba and Bathsheba’s husband Urriah.
A much different ending to a tragic story. This is so beautiful it defies words to explain it. I listened with tears streaming down my face. I pray for strength for Junsu. Momma Cha

Samples of Jaejoong’s essays from “Music Essay–Their Rooms” are now out. Intriquing could be the term. I am looking forward to receiving my 224 page copy, and listening to JYJ’s personally composed music .
Junsu is recording some music from “Tears of Heaven” on CD and included will be music from Mozart. This is great as everything out there has been fancam. We have been grateful for those who brought this much to us and it will be great to hear clear copies of Mozart.
Changmin’s “Paradise Ranch” is much anticipated and there are beautiful photos out there. It airs January 24th, 2011 on Channel SBS. Hoping for the best for you, Changmin. Check out the sidebar for visuals. Momma Cha
