NOTE: THIS NEWS WAS UPDATED BY FANS IN HONG KONG THROUGHPHONE CALL TO CONTACT IN CHINA

Update 2:

20100517 early morning Yunho was working on photo shooting at old quarter in HK. Fans estimated Yunho has at least 10 different outfits. His hair was kind of messy but handsome, the theme is ‘ragged style’. He often had eye contact with fans who were watching him. …Omit …. According to fans, the shooting venue is kind of old and shabby, very suit the theme

Update 3:

On Monday 17th, fans who were at the shooting venue observed many things about Yunho. We all know how wonderful Yunho is, but to witness yourself is so real and touching.

– Incident 1:

We all saw the pic where Yunho grabbed the hand of the fangirl in front of traffic light to prevent her from hitting by car before. Yunho always shows his concern and care to his fans. And tonight, we experienced it. The cars on the road are few but very fast. Yunho was walking with his manager and when they were about to cross the road he turned back to check the fans who were following him. He didn’t say anything but we know he tried to remind us to be careful don’t just look at him but watch out for the incoming cars.

(p/s: if you were there, will you not be in tears???)

– Incident 2:

There was a part where Yunho was required to pose with a cigarette, toward the end shooting Yunho passed the cigarette to his manager,and his manager without hesitation smoke the remaining cigarette and threw the cigarette bud on the floor. Yunho point to the floor and hinted his manager to throw the cigarette bud properly.

Yunho In Hongkong Updates (Continue…)

Update 4:

“WHO CAN BEAT HIM WHEN COMES TO “KAWAII”

One moment Yunho is all charismatic the next moment become dorky & playful and he keep switching between these 2 characters. The fangirls at site were so amused seeing him like that. So to know what happen, read below incident.

– Incident 3:

The photo shooting continue until sunrise, theweather was good. People started morning walk with their dogs. Yunho spotted a big dog (with owner), this must have reminded him of his ‘son’ – Typhoon, suddenly he became playful, he ran to the dog and benddown his body and made funny sound (like chit chit) to entice the doggy. His facial expression was extremely funny.

After a while another dog came by, this time was a small white dog. It barked at the fangirls. Yunho tried to play with him, but the dog kept barking at him too.This little white dog just don’t buy Yunho’s charisma.

Lastly, came a small yellow dog, this one is verygentle and obedient. The staff were helping Yunho with his clothes and fixinghis hair. And this dog just went and licked the ladies and Yunho, he can’t be bothered with his hair and clothes and started playing with the dog AGAIN!!!.

[TRANS] 100517 SONGS Interview – XIAH JUNSU


Junsu, who dominated the music scene with vocal group DBSK, has now released a single as “XIAH junsu”. The single is named [XIAH]. Through Junsu’s vocals, which is termed as the “Voice of Asia”, this completed work is a collection of a dance track that displays a strong sense of maturity and a ballad, a genre that Junsu excels in. Be it in the hearing or visual effects, Junsu has actively involved himself in the entire production process.

Junsu was really nervous about releasing a single in his own name. Even so, he has overcome that nerve to complete this work confidently.

The solo track has been completed already, right?
Yes. Even though it was quite tough handling both the musical [“Mozart!”] and the production of the single at the same time early this year, I was also very happy doing it.

[Intoxication] is really a dance track that leaves people with a deep impression.
I have been singing ballads for a long time now, and the image of me as a ballad singer is etched very deeply [in the minds of the audience]. Since I was going to perform as a solo artiste, I was determined to try something that was different from what I used to do in the past.

You were involved in both the composition of the melody and the lyrics. What are your thoughts and feelings about that?
When I shared my intentions of wanting to try [composition] with the people around me, there was a renewed vigor [in me]. Composing is really something very joyful (laughs).

You must have really enjoyed yourself in the production process.
When I first heard the song, an image of how it would look like on stage came to my mind so I really enjoyed the recording process. When you sing in a group, you have to take note of the balance amongst the other members. However, as I am the only person singing this time, I have to pay attention to the expressions of the different tones and take note if I have successfully interpreted the liveliness of the song.

When you are singing alone, do you meet up with more barriers?
How do I say it… In comparison to harmonizing, you need a different amount of focus and energy. However, based on the recording so far, I would use the knowledge accumulated from past experiences, and along with the mindset that this song is very important, to try and attempt a breakthrough.

We would like to ask some questions relating to the lyrics…Mr. H.U.B was in charge of coming up with lyrics, and within the song, an underlying meaning of “excitement” and “indulgence” existed, so there was a kind of lustful feel in the content in the lyrics…
(Intentionally) This is…you can also count as part of my suggestion!? (laughs)

(To affirm) So, it’s really so! (laughs)
It really is…(laughs). It appeared a lot of times, for example, “Touch me baby” and words like that (that hint at sex). But this is still R&B music, so we used lyrics that complemented the sexual feel of the song.

There will be even more blunt words when you officially perform it on stage. We are already quite lenient.
Yes! Yes! It will get worse! (laughs)
Even though it wasn’t solely me this time, I think it will be much harder if I were to come up with the lyrics myself.

(Explodes in laughter together) Men who are that deeply in love are really great. What do you yourself think should be the image of a mature guy?
I’ve mentioned before that it’s the type that will carry a heart to carry for others. Compared to one with charisma or authority, it should be those type who can naturally treat others with care, and treat women with gentleness and provide love.

How about all those tactics to test one’s feelings for the other?
I feel there should not be a need for that. If you really love that person, to the point that you are willing to do away with your pride, then you should be able to face each other sincerely and honestly. When it comes to tactics…well, this is not child’s play.

Woah~~ (claps)! Sounds like a very “adult” speech.
When I first started, I used to have those kind of feelings, but looking back now, I wouldn’t do it. Instead I would think of why I didn’t pay more attention to her. I don’t want to have regrets over such issues. To be able to reveal one’s true feelings to the other person would be the best thing for each other.

How about the lead in [Kanashimi no Yukue]?
To be able to say something like “Happiness to me, compared to an end, a change will cause more loneliness”, to separate from someone whom you treasure a lot is very painful.

Such feelings were expressed very well through your voice.
If you listening from the start to the end, you’ll realize that there is totally no harmonizing.
When you are into the song, frankly speaking, you just want to sing it such that it will directly express the true feelings of the entire song.

One can experience the beauty of the piano along with the melody.
I am very pleased about this part too.
I chose this song out of the many I have heard because when you sing a ballad alone, there is always a feeling of loneliness. Also, this image is very similar to my own.

By the way, if you are caught within the emotions caused by the expressions of such songs, how do you deal with it?
It happens mostly when I’m listening to the music, but I try to think more positively.
I’m sure most of us would have experienced such times when we are caught within such emotions…but I would probably hide it.
Even though I hide it, there were times where I occasionally got discovered. (laughs)

Any human beings would have such times. (laughs) So, you have titled these completed words as [XIAH].
Yes. You can say this that [work] is me. It is a work that I hope everyone will be attracted to listen to.
To use my own name to title this album is indeed quite nerve-wrecking, but this is one of my most confident works thus far.
I have given a lot of thoughts and suggestions towards the photo shoot of the album cover all the way to the making of the music video of [Intoxication].
How do I put it, I have never thought that I would be able to do something like this so I’m very happy.

Very well! The happiness in being able to produce the music must be twice as much!
There are also other tracks which I’m currently working on, and if there is a chance, I would like for everyone to be able to listen to it.
I will continue to give my best and work my hardest from here on! (laughs)

Even though the tones and techniques used in singing a song are important, what I hope the listeners to cherish most is still the emotions.
[Intoxication] is a song that is sentimental and lyrical and I really wanted to express the song well, so I placed myself within that personality and used my voice to interpret it. I used to imitate freshly debuted singers whom I like, and I learnt that once you have learnt to manage the different parts of a song, the song will naturally take on your personal style. If you try to imitate another singer while singing, or if you give unduly stress on your vocals due to ill management of the song, that is because you have not been able to successfully express the true emotions of the song well.

[TRANS] TV Japan Magazine June Issue


First Drama DVD Release celebration interview
YUNHO
As an actor he took a new step, we asked him about the drama and his decision for the future-

The drama Yunho was the main character of and his real actor debut drama is going to be on DVD!
“In the beginning there was pressure but I thought if I work hard the viewers will understand so I was able to enjoy it. The character I played, Cha Bong-gun has a pure heart in the beginning. But as he meets many people he matures. At the same time I think I was able to mature with him.”

He talked how it is different from an artist who has to act/express in 3 minutes during a song.
“I want to challenge a character that’s different from Bong-gun. Like a bad guy, or a sad character. The actor I look up to is Johnny Depp. I envy how he is attractive even if a kid sees him or even if an adult sees him.”

And what we want to know is as Yunho what he wants to challenge in the future.
“Even if I get a chance, if I think I shouldn’t do it yet I won’t do it. If I had a chance and when I have confidence then I want to challenge. Then I want to show everyone how I am challenging passionately. My motto is ‘a genius can’t win a hard working person’. I think im proud that everytime I do something I work hard. So that’s why I want to be more hard working. And for singing and acting I want to become Yunho who levels up so please watch over me.”

2010 world cup support message:
Korea and Japan is getting better so I’m looking forward to it. I will be supporting with passion!
Korea and Japan good luck!

[NEWS] 100514 “Avatar” Producers To Film BoA, TVXQ Concerts In 3D


Korean idol group TVXQ performing at concert [SM Entertainment]

Director James Cameron and his team of producers behind Hollywood blockbuster pic “Avatar” have agreed to produce the music videos and concert videos for BoA, TVXQ and other artists under agency SM Entertainment (SM) in 3D format.

Cameron — currently in town for the annual Seoul Digital Forum — met with Korean conglomerate Samsung Electronics’ executives and SM founder Lee Soo-man at the “3D Content-Related Cooperation Plan” event, held today at Samsung offices in Seocho District, where they announced news of the collaboration.

According to the plan, “Avatar” producers will be filming SM artists’ music videos and concerts in 3D and electronics giant Samsung will use the 3D content in the company’s worldwide marketing plan for its 3D television products.

The filming for the 3D concert is expected to begin “around June” in Korea, presumably at live music concerts featuring BoA, TVXQ and Girls’ Generation.

Producer and entertainment mogul Lee Soo-man expressed his anticipation, saying “I am proud to be able to work with a global company like Samsung Electronics and the best team of producers in the world. I think we will come up with the best 3D content.”

Female pop singer BoA, who also attended the event with TVXQ members Max Changmin and U-Know Yunho, commented, “I am glad and excited to take part in such a fantastic event. I will try my best to become an artist who approaches fans with great content.”

The TVXQ singers said they will “work hardest to create a new kind of cultural content.”

SM Entertainment, considered one of the top talent agencies in Korea, just yesterday disclosed information on its earnings for the first quarter of the year, indicating its most successful first quarter to date.

The firm recorded operating profits of 10.4 billion won, or over nine million dollars, during the three month period, which is an increase by an astounding 471 percent from the same period last year.

BoA has been one of the most successful K-pop artists since first making her debut ten years ago and is one of the first Korean artists to make a major breakthrough into the Japanese music industry. She also made her U.S. debut in March 2009.

Five member boy-band TVXQ is also one of Asia’s top artists with reportedly the largest fanbase in the world but they have ceased working as an entirety since July last year after three of its members, namely Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu, became embroiled in a legal battle with SM.
