[trans] 101201 JYJ's Seoul Concert's Enormous Economic Ripple Effect

Attracted over 3000 fans from Japan, China etc... Creates added value of tens of billions of Won

▲Over 3000 foreigners from all over the world, such as Japan, China and the US, came to Korea to attend JYJ's concert that was held in Jamshil's Olympic Stadium

JYJ (Jaejoong-Yoochun-Junsu) showed off their strong ticket power amongst international fans and proved once more that they are the core of the Hallyu Wave.

JYJ, who released their global album 'The Beginning', held their large-scale concert 'JYJ Worldwide concert in Seoul' on the 27th and 28th at the Jamshil Olympic Stadium.

Over 3000 foreigners visited Korea from the Americas, Europe and Asia, from countries such as Japan, China, Taiwan and Malaysia, to attend the concert. Thanks to this, the domestic travel industry was set alight though November is usually considered off-season.

Before the JYJ concert happened, a technical journal in the field stated, "20,143 Japanese tourists are planning to visit Korea, the most in November, and JYJ's Korean concert, which is to be held on the 27th and 28th, greatly influenced these statistics." A representative of the tourism industry proved the group's popularity once more by stating, "Of the 4,113 tourists our company manages who are coming to Korea this month, 2500 of them are Hallyu tourists coming to attend the JYJ concert."

During the concert period, the surroundings of Jamshil Olympic Stadium were filled with fans from all over the world five hours before the concert began. It quickly turned into a global festival as fans who had flown in from countries such as Japan, China, Thailand, Philippines, USA, UK, and Germany were spotted. It was like watching an international festival as all announcements were done in Korean, Chinese and Japanese.

A tourist agency representative on location explained that, "The number of tourists visiting Korea has risen dramatically as people are flooding in to see this concert," and "JYJ proved their power as Hallyu stars and their worth as 'dutiful sons' to their nation."

He also added, "The influx of tourists is so big that it's hard to make reservations at hotels in Seoul right now," and "This concert will cause an economic ripple effect and create an added value of billions, possibly tens of billions, of Won."

JYJ's immense success has put the Korean Federation of Pop Culture and Art Industry (KFPCAI) in an embarrassing situation as just over a month ago, it called for broadcasting and cable companies to refrain from allowing JYJ to appear on their shows as "JYJ's activities will have a negative impact on the Hallyu Wave".

In the official document sent on October 11th to various broadcasting companies, the KFPCAI stated, "Allowing JYJ to appear on shows will be pouring cold water onto Korea's pop culture industry and the nation's image that has been built up by the Hallyu Wave," and "JYJ will lead pop culture and the Hallyu Wave to a road of regression."

However, JYJ was able to attract tens of thousands of international fans to their showcases that were held in three US cities and six Asian cities (in Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, China) and promptly proved that the KFPCAI's argument was weak with their amazing ticket power.

[trans] 101205 Radio 21 Announcement

Radio 21, which played JYJ/TVXQ songs for hours last night til this morning, and is one Jaejoong and Junsu personally thanked to earlier today through their twitter, had made an announcement on its website.
Below is translation from Japanese.
JYJ full songs on unlimited repeat

2010-12-05 02:19:43
Soar JYJ, we will become your wings!
We will be playing JYJ full songs for the fans.
Between 2:20 am and 10am, we will officially broadcast JYJ’s music that is now unable to be played on regular broadcasting networks.
Of course, both sides have problems… there are a lot of things they ought to say to each other.
However, for SM which has a representative Mr. Lee Soo Man, who was once a singer himself, to block songs of members that it has raised itself, no matter what the reason is, we see a huge problem with such action.
As once a singer himself, he ought to know music more than anyone, so for him to behave like this, we find it very hard to comprehend. On top of that he also in a position as a senior and a parent.
As such, Radio 21 will present to you unlimited repeat of JYJ songs, that have not been able to be played officially before, until 10 o’clock in the morning.
Also from now on, we promise that as long as there are requests from listeners, we will play JYJ songs in all our programs at anytime.
Participating in this activity itself is giving power.
And we have made a new category for this. Fans please make a title for the category. … for now, we are temporarily calling it “with JYJ”.
Radio 21 has until now did our best to minimize broadcasting J-Pop.
However JYJ’s J-Pop is something to be proud of.
Sure enough we want to always present to you JYJ’s J-Pop.
Though we are inadequate, from here onwards Radio21 wants to be of assistance to help guarding everyone’s JYJ.

[trans] 101201 Moon Hee Joon "Why Can't YoungWoong Jaejoong Be Confident Like Moon Geun Young?"

Moon Hee Joon showed his gratitude towards actress Moon Geun Young.

On SBS' 'Strong Heart'(MC Kang Ho Dong, Lee Seung Gi) on November 30th, Moon Hee Joon seemed excited as he said, "This is the first time in 15 years that Moon Geun Young said she is a fan of mine. I'm so thankful."

Moon Hee Joon also said, "Some of my fans are also stars with immense popularity who might surprise you all. For example, TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong was a fan of mine who really liked me," and "Every concert, he'd be the handsome guy holding a white balloon in the crowd."

He continued to say, "Everytime YoungWoong Jaejoong was asked who his idol was, I'd listen intently just in case he said my name, but he would list only foreign artistes. Why can't he confidently say that he's a fan of mine like Moon Geun Young?" He elicited laughter from the audience when he added, "Moon Geun Young brings honor to the Moon family lineage. She is a small but great person."

[trans] 101205 Jo Sung Ha praises Yoochun’s acting skills in an interview

Q: From your point of view as a senior actor, among the four main leads in the drama (SungKyunKwan Scandal) whose acting skills has improved the most?

A: Yoochun is the one whose acting skills has improved the most. This is the first time for Yoochun to act in a drama, in fact he started his career as a singer but not as an actor. Whenever I chat with him, I found out that he has a lot of ideas about acting. His attitude is like that too. Besides that, he shows keen interest in film industry. It is totally different when being an actor and a singer. I think his appearance alongside with his potential in acting, he will become an actor with real abilities in the future. In addition, he has improved a lot in the end. The gaze I perceived from him is totally different from the time when I first acted with him and the last time we acted together. It is not easy to achieve that.
