JYJ 12 Hour Whirlwind – Burns $1 Million
The JYJ whirlwind has arrived in Malaysia with a total of 25 people flying over from Singapore. In merely 12 hours, their packed schedule included the showcase, a press conference, and the fan photo-taking event. The trio’s total expense rose over $1 million Ringgits, so not only is their ability to suck in money super strong, their massive expenditure is equally surprising!

Previously in TVXQ, the 3 members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu formed the group JYJ. Their arrival yesterday created a huge JYJ whirlwind, attracting over 4000 participants at the showcase. Around 100 media outlets with different language platforms attended the press conference at night, with electronic and web media coming to interview the trio. After the press conference, there were 400 fans who bought the 800 Ringgit tickets that could earn them a chance to have a private photo-taking session with JYJ.

Originally, JYJ planned to stay in Malaysia for a night, but the day before they came, they finalized another activity that was to be held in Seoul on the 18th, so the trio flew back to Korea on the same night after their showcase on the 17th at 11:30PM. Because of the sudden change of schedule, it made their visit to Malaysia very tight on time. The showcase was delayed an hour because of rehearsals, and the location for the photo-taking session moved hotels, taking place after the press conference than straight after the showcase. But because the trio returned back to the hotel, the media continued to interview the Korean side through the internet, which then dragged for another one and a half hours and was canceled in the end. The photo-taking lasted for only about 10 minutes before hastily ending. JYJ still left for the airport full of their fans’ blessings and support, concluding their 12 hour journey in Malaysia.

The showcase “forbidden topics” – Malaysian fans donate $10K USD to charity

JYJ’s management company being involved in gang-related activities, Japanese activities being obstructed, SM Entertainment filing for the prohibition of sales of JYJ’s new album, and the boycott on JYJ’s Korean activities are all very hot topics, but were all categorized in the “forbidden topics” for the Malaysian press conference. Malaysian media ignored these sensitive topics not related to the promotion by putting the main focus of their questions on JYJ’s new album. The three obviously didn’t want to create even more issues during this sensitive period, so they chose to keep silent in reaction to these problems.

Although the trio have been working hard all day, with their faces showing signs of fatigue, they are unable to forget the passion of the fans after the showcase ended. At the 7:30PM press conference, they were still in a state of excitement. Junsu stated frankly that they hoped plans for a concert in Malaysia would quickly be confirmed so they can come back to see everyone again.

The fans of JYJ considerately donated $10K USD under the name of JYJ to welcome them as a new group. The money will be donated to World Vision’s poverty alleviation programs, which deeply touched JYJ by this act of kindness, who have already donated a sum of money to World Vision themselves.

Although they were unable to take a look at Malaysia’s beautiful scenery, the three hope that they will have another chance to come to Malaysia to enjoy the sunshine, and even to take promotion pictures. Junsu laughingly said that he liked Malaysia’s coconut trees the most, and hopes that he can take some time to come for a vacation with a couple of friends.

As an idol group, JYJ’s every action and their clothing and accessories have all become a fashion guide to their fans. Jaejoong said that off-stage, they don’t have special requirements for their apparel, just as long as it is comfortable and suits them well.

‘The Beginning’ is JYJ’s debut album after their formation. When asked about their individually composed songs and whether or not it portrayed the real experiences of them, Jaejoong said “it wasn’t just my own experiences, but also the feelings of a lot of people.” Junsu admitted “‘I Can Soar’ is my own personal experience.” What was the purpose of naming the album ‘The Beginning’ and what message does it convey? Yoochun said “it means that everyday is a new beginning!”

With their album going international, JYJ had to sing the songs in English. For Junsu and Jaejoong who had troubles with the language, it could be said that this was a big test for them. Did the unknowing two ask for assistance from Yoochun to improve their English fluency? The two laughed and urged the other one to answer. At last, Junsu answered “English really is hard to learn. This isn’t, after all, a language that we are familiar with and use frequently. During the recording process, Yoochun helped us tremendously, and always corrects our pronunciation!”

To test the language-talent of the trio, the host wanted them to learn “aku cinta pada mu” on the spot. They followed the pronunciation bit by bit like students, and Yoochun repeated it again with accurate enunciation, so indeed, Yoochun is the most gifted one out of the three in terms of language.

[News] 101019 Park Yoochun Got Praised For His Developing Acting Skill in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’

Latest News About Update Sungkyunkwan Scandal Episode 16: Drama representatives have been expressing their amazement at JYJ’s Yuchun’s (Micky Yoochun) first drama debut. Although he received criticisms in the beginning for his embarrassing acting skills, his steady and consistent improvement has caught the eyes of many, and in particular, the CP of KBS’s “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.”

CP Kwak Kiwon stated on October 19th, “I noticed that his gaze started to change after the fifth episode. His lines got a lot longer and the amount of NGs he made started to decrease as well. By the 15th and 16th episode recording, I was shocked when I saw that he was immersing himself into his lines, even shedding a few tears at times.”

He went on to compliment, “He has amazing concentration skills. The pressure must be heavy on him since he’s a rookie but he’s able to handle a lot of things despite his status.”

For an inexperienced actor, one would assume that the long term recordings and the difficult scheduling would tire him out. However, Yuchun showed remarkable consistency even while performing as a member of JYJ. Kwak CP continued, “Yuchun earns a lot of points for his sincerity. He’s a star as a singer, but he fully knows that he’s still a rookie when it comes to acting and acts accordingly.”

The CEO of Sungkyunkwan Scandal’s production company, Lemon Rain, stated, “We were worried since Lee Seon Jun has many lines, but he exceeded our expectations so we’re very proud. Through each episode, his acting is improving. He has the potential to become a great actor.”

A representative from CJES Entertainment commented, “Yuchun went through rigorous acting lessons before recording the drama. The acting he is showing now is only the result of much effort. The producers were so surprised at how well he matched the role when he first got costumed and earned a great response.
