[News] TVXQ Still Keeping Their Feet On The Ground

[News] TVXQ Still Keeping Their Feet On The Ground

The two members shared their first impressions of Singapore, their love for chilli crabs and what they miss doing the most.


They may be one of the biggest stars in K-pop, but what greeted us at the group interview in the function room at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, were two affable and sincere men.

Decked in matching blue military-styled uniforms, TVXQ took questions from the media in a short 20-minute group interview before their fan party.

The duo first talked about their first impressions of our country and told us what they had previously heard of us.

“It’s our first time to Singapore and we had the chance to view the night scenery yesterday. It was really beautiful. The impression is not fully formed because we’ve not performed and met our fans yet. We’ll have a better impression of Singapore and the fans after tonight,” leader Yunho replied.

He added that Singaporean fans had been very welcoming and gave them lots of support.

It’s not difficult to see that the chilli crabs in Singapore had left TVXQ a lasting impression (the duo mentioned it again during the fan party).

When asked if they had the chance to taste any local delicacy, Changmin said, “We’ve tried pepper crabs and chilli crabs last night. We heard that it’s one of the most famous local delicacies here. It was really, really tasty. We know that Singapore is well-known for the seafood, since it’s surrounded by the sea.”

Being one of the top Hallyu stars definitely has its perks, but it has its downsides — the loss of privacy and being “ordinary”, as well as stress.

Changmin shared that the things he missed were travelling with his friends, and hanging out with them and having drinks together. The 23-year-old also reminded that he is already of age to have alcoholic beverages.

Yunho echoed the former’s sentiments, answering a short “same” first in Korean, then in English.

When questioned how they relieve stress, Changmin first answered that he would drink and have tasty food, especially spicy dishes.

On the other hand, Yunho demonstrated his athletic side, saying that he would go for snowballing during winter and in the other seasons, bowling.

Later, the enthusiasm TVXQ showed was evident, when the duo talked about their fans.

While no particular fan ever caught their attention, Yunho spoke on a special and memorable moment they had.

“When we’re performing, our fans would create ‘TVXQ’ or the members’ names with red light sticks. That’s very memorable for us,” he said.

Considering they are already one of the top stars in the Korean music industry, the media wondered what it would be like for them 10 years down the road.

“We’ll probably still be in this industry, doing what we’re doing now. We wish that we could put up such performances by then, but stamina wise, I’m not very sure if we still have the strength,” Changmin replied.

Yunho also pictured themselves doing joint performances with junior singers in the industry, and would probably be involved in individual careers such as acting in various dramas.

However, the pair has no acting projects at the moment.

It was a short interview, but TVXQ displayed their professionalism, candor and sincerity the entire time. The bright-eyed pair spoke in soft and gentle tones, only to raise their voices occasionally to show enthusiasm.

TVXQ may have debuted eight years ago, but the duo felt down-to-earth and that fame did not seem like it had gone over their heads.

NEWS TVXQ Tickles Fans With Singlish

[News] TVXQ Tickles Fans with Singlish

The Korean boy band was in town for an upclose and personal fan party yesterday.

Dubbed the ‘Kings of Hallyu’, Korean boy band TVXQ returned to the music scene with the album Why? (Keep Your Head Down) in January this year. Following their highly successful comeback, the group held their first overseas fan party in Beijing, China back in August.

TVXQ debuted as a five-member group, consisting of leader Yunho, Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu and Changmin. In 2009, three members — Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu — filed an injunction suit against their former company, forming the group JYJ. The trio was last seen in town for a showcase in October last year.

The two-member TVXQ arrived on our shores for the first time yesterday, performing to an audience of 4,500 fans at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

For the first 10 minutes of the fan party, concert-goers were entertained by the group’s music video for the song ‘Before U Go’. Fans screamed and shouted enthusiastically, whenever the members appeared on screen, as if assuring TVXQ, who were backstage.

Consisting of members Yunho and Changmin, TVXQ exploded on stage, bringing the house down with their first song of the night, ‘Maximum’. Deck in matching white costumes, the pair sang and danced to a sea of red light sticks (red being the group’s official colour).

After the first song, Yunho and Changmin took turns to greet the audience, both expressing their delight and excitement to be performing for the first time in Singapore and hoped that “fans would enjoy each of our performances”.

Fans also got to know the duo a little bit more during the Q&A session, but it was Yunho and Changmin’s apt use of Singlish, which had the fans doubled over in laughter.

When asked if they knew about Singlish, Changmin answered that he had learnt a few words from the local staff, before proceeding to show his “fluency”.

“No problem … la?” the 23-year-old tried.

Fans chortled in response, with a few nodding their heads in approval.

Not one to be outdone, Yunho said, “Chilli crab shiok!”

Later, five lucky fans each got the chance to ask TVXQ a question personally. Two well-made fan videos, which left some people in tears, were also chosen to be aired during the fan party.

Upon viewing the videos, Changmin said, “Thank you for the videos. I’m impressed by the amount of effort they put in. They give us the energy to put on our best performances.”

Yunho added that he was very “touched by their effort and love” and even though they have tough times, this “love [from fans] keeps us going and gives us support to do our utmost best”.

These two winners were rewarded with a TVXQ poster each. Yunho signed with a personal ‘God Bless You’ message, while Changmin wrote ‘Thank You’.

It might have been a short two-hour fan party, but it was evident that TVXQ was thankful for their fans, some who have waited for as long as seven years.

Not only did the group thank the fans profusely for their “love, passion and support”, they also showed their appreciation in the most practical way.

For any Cassiopeia (name of TVXQ’s official fanclub), the best part of the fan party was definitely to hear the pair perform ‘live’ in their top-notch condition. TVXQ proved their reign as ‘Kings of Hallyu’ by putting up a perfect performance. The duo’s singing was not compromised, despite the amount of dancing they had to do.

[TRANS] 111201 Coming To Shanghai Next Week To Meet With Their Fans, TVXQ Reminds “Cassiopeia” To Stay Sensible
Posted on December 1, 2011 by TheRarasaurus

All TVXQ fans have a collective, beautiful name – “Cassiopeia”, who will stay by their idols through thick and thin. On 9 December, TVXQ will be holding their “Asia Tour Fanmeeting in Shanghai”, and although they are carrying out activities as 2 members, their appeal cannot be underestimated.

Prior to the performance. TVXQ members Jung Yunho and Shim Changmin gave suggestions to “Cassiopeia,” via the organizers, asking them to ensure their own safety, and not to make any rash actions. TVXQ said that they can understand the feelings of the fans who have been waiting for such a long time, but safety is the most important issue, emphasizing that everyone should avoid causing unnecessary injuries for the sake of chasing after their idols.

The reporter also understands that, due to safety considerations, the organizers will be adding additional metal railings in the front, center and back areas of the arena, reinforcing the barriers, and have also hired 50 bodyguards for TVXQ to prevent any potential mishaps.

[Trans] 111124 Changmin (Tohoshinki), With A Girl He Likes, “My Approach Would Be Instinctive, Just Being Myself”

[Trans] 111124 Changmin (Tohoshinki), With A Girl He Likes, “My Approach Would Be Instinctive, Just Being Myself”

A popular drama aired on Korea’s SBS, the complete DVD Box for drama “Paradise Ranch” starring Changmin (Tohoshinki) was released on 2 November.

With this, Changmin, who is acting as the lead in a drama for the first time, talks about his feelings when acting in this show, his favourite scenes, his ideal type of girl and newlywed-couple life in relation to the drama, his approach towards girls as well as the episode where Yunho visits him on set, in this official interview which has finally arrived.

◆  ◆  ◆

This is your first starring role in a drama, please tell us how you feel about your acting.

As drama is my first project, before the shooting I was already nervous. This is a kind of work I have never ever done before, so it was difficult. But when the shooting started, I got used to it after a while, and I could have fun with it. The location for the filming was really nice, so that was great too. As for the show, as this was my first challenge so I can’t say that I was confident but compared to my initial acting, thinking “If I did it this way, wouldn’t it better?” was how I decided to look at this.


How did you take on the role of Dong Joo?

I watched similar dramas, and observed characters that were similar to Dong Joo. I studied Korean dramas with contents about arguing with your partner and unknowingly coming to like the other person, such as  “Fantasy Couple” and “Alone in Love.” I also searched for similarities between myself and Dong Joo, and tried to express that.

What are the similarities between yourself and Dong Joo?

Being straightforward in expressing our feelings, and being short-tempered, probably (Laughs). Dong Joo’s emotions fluctuate a lot, and I’m that type as well, and since we’re similar in that way, it was easier to act it out and that was good. Of course, I can’t say that Dong Joo and I are totally the same, but I don’t there was anything that was completely different about the both of us.

Please tell us if there were any scenes that were your favourite, or any lines that left a deep impression on you.

The scene were Dong Joo was changing clothes in Da Ji’s house. Da Ji came into Dong Joo’s room, and said “My father is coming so you have to hide!” This hiding scene. It was an interesting scene to act in. Even though I was half-naked (Laughs), it was a really comical scene so I really enjoyed it.

What was difficult (about shooting the drama)?

The shooting started in winter so it was really cold. In terms of scenes, it was the scene where I was calling my mother while drinking. I’ve never acted drunk before, but I was actually drinking wine as we did the shoot. I was drinking all the way since the morning, and I ended up drunk and that was really difficult. (laughs). However, it was a good experience.

Dong Joo and Yeon Hee had a very tumultuous newlywed-couple life, but please tell us about your ideal girl and newlywed-couple life.

I think that as Dong Joo and Yeon Hee are first loves, and they couldn’t do anything, and couldn’t do without each other, a mutually-dependent existence.  They are young so they are optimistic and passionate, but I don’t think you need to keep being that way. For me, although it is important to treat your partner kindly and consider their feelings, having a friend-like relationship is good. Although we will argue, be it going out and having fun, or interests and other things should be shared as well. As for my ideal girl, a reliable girl would be good. This job (of mine) is full of instability, so I think that having a girl who can help me remain composed would be great. Someone feminine and cheerful would be nice.

Dong Joo wavers between Yeon Hee and Jin Young, but for you (Changmin) who would you pick between the two of them?

To be honest, I want to add the both of them together then split it into half (laughs). Basically, I don’t want to give up either of them. Jin Young is a woman that any man would yearn for. She’s a good career woman, and initially it wasn’t the case by in the end, she helps to protect Dong Joo. This kind of woman is probably the dream of any man. For Da Ji, compared to Jin Young, she has more energy and is not as feminine but more…like an auntie? (Laughs) However, for me, that is her charm, and I feel that she is very reliable. Even though they aren’t sure of their mutual feelings, aren’t they still dependent on each other?

Dong Joo is a character that doesn’t express his true feelings for Da Ji, saying nasty things to her all the time, but for Changmin, what is your approach towards a girl that you like?

I won’t do it like Dong Joo, who says nasty things and bullies his partner even though he likes her. I won’t fool around, and I won’t try to analyze her thoughts. Rather, I think my approach would be instinctive, and just being myself. From a girl’s point of view, I think I would be easy to get along with. (Laughs)

During filming, it seems that Yunho went to the shooting location in Jeju island to visit you, so please tell us about any episodes during that time. Also, did you get any advice from Yunho, or any feedback with regards to the drama?

I said “Don’t come, don’t come,” but he stubbornly came anyway….  What Yunho had told be before filming was, to do it naturally and not be nervous, and he said a lot of things. As for watching this drama…we didn’t give any actual feedback to each other regarding each of our dramas, but he said “It was interesting, and good.”

So you and Yunho be performing together as actors in the future?

No. (Laughs) I do feel that I want to show everyone “Changmin” as an actor, but when it’s the two of us, we become Tohoshinki, don’t we.. I only just started acting, so I can’t say that I want to see this, but from now on I will work even harder to improve my acting, and show everyone various sides of me.

This was your first challenge in acting, and what is the difference between acting and singing activities? Also, do you see any changes in yourself, or any improvements etc in your activities as a singer?

Putting your feelings into it and expressing yourself is the same. However, in a song, you express one feeling for about 3 to 6 minutes, whereas in acting you have to naturally express all the little changes in emotions that you see in everyday life. It’s different from singing, and it was difficult. After actually trying it out, I think my range of expressions has increased, and this was really useful.

This drama is a love comedy, what kind of genre do you wish to challenge in a drama or movie in the future?

In the future if I have an chance to act, I will definitely give this challenge a try. In terms of genre, I always liked romantic comedies so I wanted to try it, and also a story about youths around my age, with a school as a setting, a school drama is something I would like to try.

Is there a place like “Paradise Ranch” or a time where you can recuperate from your busy everyday life?

After the day is over, I drink beer. This beer is a reward to myself, which says “Ah~ It’s over! I worked really hard today.”

Please leave a message to all your Japanese fans, about watching Paradise Ranch, or about your future plans etc.

Not just the lead actors, but everyone who appeared in the show disregarded their own feelings and worked dutifully. As this is a story that talks about a pure, straight love without limits, please watch it. Also, not only is it funny, the setting is set in the beautiful Jeju Island, and I think its a drama which you can enjoy and relax with. I hope that this winter, this drama will be able to warm your hearts.
