To this, Park Yoohwan expressed that he doesn’t mind, saying, “My brother is a superstar that I will never be able to surpass, but in the field of acting, I want to surpass him. My brother joined the industry first, and has given me some advice, so I feel very grounded.”

When being interviewed by the Korean Media, Park Yoohwan expressed that both he and his brother spent their youth in America, and his brother loved music, and often wrote songs and sang it to him. For himself, he enjoyed acting, so he would rent some DVDs to watch, then try to imitate them. After that, he returned to Korea because of this, and took up acting classes.

The media reported that before debut, Park Yoohwan had mentioned to Park Yoochun that he hoped to develop himself in the entertainment industry, and become an actor. During then, Park Yoochun’s answer was that, “There will be many obstacles, and it will be difficult, so you have to consider this carefully.” But after his brother had set his mind on it, Park Yoochun has been totally supportive of Park Yoohwan, and even Yoochun’s fans are supporting Yoohwan. Park Yoohwan expressed that his brother and fans’ support are the driving force that pushes him to work harder.

Park Yoochun appeared on MBN with the other JYJ members and talked truthfully about the controversy surrounding his composition 'A Song Without a Name Part.1'.

[TRANS] 110210 MBN Celebrity Magazine VIP – JYJ’s Favourite Type Of Kiss Revealed!

Three member of TVXQ created the new unit JYJ and are currently doing activities, and was recently interviewed by Celebrity VIP. Based off the recent buzz about the “Bubble Foam Kiss”, we asked the three members about the type of kiss that they liked. "Candy kiss, Bathtub kiss, a peck on the lips rather than a kiss!"” With such an answer, the three members caused great laughter from the people around them. 

During the interview, Jaejoong, who said that he wanted to do a “bathtub kiss,” said, “After getting married, I want to take a bubble bath with my wife..” and Kim Junsu tried to clear up the situation by saying, "Ah, this is not suitable for those below 19..*"

◆ Kim Jaejoong appeared at a Gangnam nightclub once in the middle of the night? 

Recently, something strange happened to Jaejoong. “Someone said that I had a booking at a nightclub in Gangnam.** The fans told me this piece of news, and I was shocked beyond words." Yoochun said, "I made a phone call to confirm that Jaejoong was indeed at home.” explaining the strange matter.

"There's a rumor that some of our fans purposely go to nightclubs hoping they might get a booking with me." Jaejoong said, dispelling the rumour while expressing his concern for the safety of the fans. 

◆ "Is it her face~ or her body~ A full analysis of JYJ's ideal women!! 

We asked JYJ, who are now in their late 20s, “Who do you think is the first member to get married?” And with any question that involves choosing a person, everyone points to Junsu. When asked about the member facing the most pressure to get married, everyone picks Jaejoong. Jaejoong’s father told him, “No girlfriend? That’s okay, just give me a grandchild,” much to everyone’s surprise.

Also, when asked about whether a woman's face or her body was more important in their ideal wives," Junsu gave an explosive answer.

“I want a family type (of person)”, “Someone that my parents will be pleased with.” These were his rather special requirements for his future wife. Aside from this, they also spoke from their heart about matters that they have yet to talk about, as well as the deep friendship between the members, and straightforward words, can all be seen here.

[trans] 110210 JYJ Takes 4 Spots In The Top 20 Charts For 2010 Without Any Broadcasting Activities

The group JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) gained attention as they took up 4 of the Top 20 spots on the Gaon Chart Total Album Sales for 2010.

JYJ’s Worldwide Album “The Beginning” recorded sales of 99,903 and took 8th place, with “The Beginning (New Limited Edition)” and “Luxury Edition” recording sales of 98,311 and 92,649 at 10th and 11th place respectively. 

Also, the OST for KBS 2TV’s Drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” which starred Park Yoochun, sold 76,951 copies, and was at the 13th placing. It was the only OST that made it on the chart.

For JYJ, who is embroiled in a lawsuit with former management company SM Entertainment, who have been restricted from participating in music show recordings and other broadcasting activities, these are their results and rankings. This is the difference between them and other artists. And this also shows the existence of JYJ’s strong fanbase and star power. 

On another note, “The Beginning” which saw contributions by the world-famous artist Kanye West, as well as the famous producer who worked with Michael Jackson, Rodney Jerkins, has garnered attention not only from the fans but also from people in the recording industry, even before sales had started. It was also ranked 5th in the American Billboard Chart for Readers’ favourite albums of 2010.

[trans] 110205 'Tears Of Heaven' Kim Junsu, Idol? No, A 'Musical Star!'

JYJ member Kim Junsu (Xiah Junsu) has announceed his extravagant rebirth as a musical star through the large-scale production 'Tears of Heaven'.

Kim Junsu plays the role of Jun, a Korean soldier in Vietnam in the musical 'Tears of Heaven' which opened in the National Theater on the 1st. Through the role of the solider who falls in love with a Vietnamese woman Lin, Kim Junsu showcased charismatic singing and acting.

He has already debuted as a musical actor through the musical 'Mozart!' last year. With a caliber not usually found in rookies, Kim Junsu won two awards at The Musical Awards as well as the Rookie of the Year award at the Korea Musical Awards. Kim Junsu, who has proved his potential, has vowed to appear in at least one musical per year from now on. He decided upon 'Tears of Heaven' for his second production.

His slightly unstable and nervous acting at the beginning of the show stabilized as the show progressed. His witty and outstanding ad libs gave a new sense of joviality to Jun and Lin's love. Though he still has minor areas to fix up and put the finishing touches on, he deserves high marks if you take into consideration that this is only his second musical.

Compared to his acting skills which were not extraordinary, his musical capabilities were beyond expectations. This only proved why he's singled out as the idol singer with the greatest vocal talents. His sweet voice in the first act that sang of his love with Lin, and the husky singing style he used in the second act to express a painful parting, mesmerized the ears of audience members. He stood out immensely during his solos in 'Do I have to say' and 'I had to learn', both of which are the opening songs of the first and second acts respectively. He was able to draw applause from audience members from the start.

Kim Junsu's ticket power is also something to be noted. All 15,000 seats of the first round of reservations for 'Tears of Heaven' were sold out in 5 minutes and 3,000 seats for the second round were sold out in 3 and a half minutes. Even the third round of reservations, which opened on the 31st last month, sold out in 2 minutes and 30 seconds. He's shown a ticket power greater than that of Jo Seung Woo of 'Jekyll and Hyde'. The string of sold out performances, which has never happened before in the musical industry, caused scalper tickets to reach prices of over 3 million Won, much to the dismay of Kim Junsu, who said that such a situation was "Unfortunate."

[trans] 110204 'Multitalented Idols' JYJ, What Are Their Acting Plans For 2011?

JYJ's Kim Jaejoong has recently become the center of attention when it was uncovered that he's being considered for a role in the drama 'HanBanDo' with top actors like Jang Dong Gun and Ha Jiwon. According to a representative of JYJ, not only will Kim Jaejoong be acting this year, but Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu will also take a stab at acting as well.

First up is Kim Jaejoong, who is a strong candidate for the drama 'HanBanDo' and one who acted in the drama 'Sunao Ni Narenakute' with famous Japanese actors such as Eita and Ueno Juri. Having built his foundation through the movie and drama he has appeared in as an actor, Kim Jaejoong is a rising star full of potential who is catching the eyes of drama representatives. A JYJ spokesperson stated, "Jaejoong is getting many love calls from production companies who have been keeping an eye on him as he has been gaining more experience in acting," and "Many scenarios have come in, for movies and for drams. He has been receiving great offers in the drama genre so he is carefully considering his options. There is a high possibility that he will greet viewers through a drama in the later half of this year."

Park Yoochun, who successfully transformed into an actor through his role in the KBS drama 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' last year, is also planning to tackle a drama this year. The representative stated, "He has been receiving countless love calls after his role in 'SungKyunKwan Scandal'," and "As his first work was a historical drama, he is waiting for a new drama in which he can show a different kind of charm. Viewers will be able to see Yoochun in a drama, at the latest, in the second half of this year."

Park Yoochun took the role of 'Lee Seon Joon' in the drama 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' and was praised for his acting, which was much more sophisticated than that of other rookies. As a result, he received three trophies at the 2010 KBS Drama Awards and proved his enormous potential as an actor.

Kim Junsu, who began performances for the musical 'Tears of Heaven' on February 1st, is planning to continue his remarkable activities on stage. The representative stated, "Though he is receiving offers for dramas and movies as well, Junsu wishes to and is planning on continuing his activities as a musical actor," and "He has already proved his immense ticket power as well as his acting skills through various performances. Right now, his focus is to finish 'Tears of Heaven' well. He may greet audiences once more through a different musical in the second half of this year."

Like so, JYJ are planning to be extremely active this year, branching out into the field of acting while continuing their careers as musicians. As all three have proved their potential, representatives of the industry believe that they will be as flawless as actors as they are as singers.

[trans] 110208 Park Yoohwan “To Me, My Brother Park Yoochun Is An Intimidating Presence”

Actor Park Yoohwan and JYJ’s Park Yoochun (Micky Yoochun) showed the brotherly love between them.

On 8 February at 1pm, Park Yoohwan appeared at the Seoul Gangnam-gu Nonhyun-dong’s Imperial Palace Hotel for the press conference of MBC’s weekend drama, “Shiny Shiny Shining.” (Screenplay by Bae Yoo Mi, Directed by Noh Do Chul) A point to note was the appearance of JYJ’s Park Yoochun, who appeared at the press conference location to support his brother, causing a flurry of flashing lights from the reporters .

At this press conference, Park Yoohwan smiled and said, “ I didn’t think that (Park Yoochun) would come. I’m really happy to see him here. To see the person that I rarely meet at home appear here, it feels really good!”

Following the footsteps of Park Yoochun, Park Yoohwan will debut as an actor via this drama, and a comparison between him and his brother is unavoidable. To this, he replied, “I don’t think it is a bad thing to be compared to my brother, since he and I are bonded by blood, so I feel that it is an honour.”

On Park Yoochun, he said, “When I see him at home, I feel like he is my brother. But once he stands on stage, I find him really cool! My brother gave me a lot of advice, but also criticizes me. He hopes that I can use my own strength to grow. Living in America for 10 years, I have not been exposed to society much, so he teaches me about the social cultures. Because he can scold me, he is an intimidating presence to me.”

Park Yoohwan’s passion for acting was actually ignited by Park Yoochun. “One day, my brother said that he wanted to go for acting classes, so I went along, and I somehow became very interested. Actually, when he composes, there have been times where I helped him write lyrics. I want to work hard on acting, while helping my brother write songs,” showing the love between the two brothers.


On another note, “Shiny Shiny Shining” which will start airing on 12 February, is a story about a life-changing moment in a woman’s life. With this change, the female lead works hard to lead her life, and she is a fighting machine that manages to overcome problems with both work and love. 

Park Yoohwan plays the role of “Lee Seo Woo,” a brother with a 43 year age difference, the illegitimate brother of Han Ji Yoong (played by Jang Yong), President of the large publishing firm “The Forest Of Wisdom”

Moreover, I am extremely surprised at his progression in vocal ability during this time. And his personality is very good as well. Just like his time as “Mozart,” he should be able to grow even more as the performances progress.
