Later during the interview, Jaejoong revealed, “In the past when I went overseas to expand, I didn’t have much confidence. I couldn’t even wave my hand to fans at the airport, and always hid behind the other members. Asia’s fans’ impression on me is that I can sing and dance well, so I want to thank everyone for praising me like that!”
He also expressed, “When I was younger, I wanted to show everyone my handsome and strong image, but now I’ve realized that it’s best to be free,” revealing his honest thoughts since his debut 8 years ago in the hopes of achieving more freedom.
Jaejoong’s pictures have caused quite a stir amongst fans, and the online pre-orders of the magazine were completely sold out. It has been confirmed that there will be a reprint of the edition, surprising all with his immense popularity.

After the Seoul Central District Court dismissed both of SM Entertainment’s injunctions against JYJ last week, the judge Kim Daewong has decided to incur a fee against SM Entertainment every time they interfere with JYJ’s activities.

Even though the court has ruled in favor of JYJ, C-JeS Entertainment’s Baek Changjoo said, “There are still many obstacles to go over. There are many things still to be worked out even with the court ruling in our favor. I hope the public and fans support our cause and help create a more progressive celebrity system.”

Is QTV also afraid of angering someone?” and further pointed out, “I really hope you keep your promise to air the program because fans from not only Korea, but around the world are watching.”

Rookie actor Park Yoohwan recently unveiled his heartwarming family photos.
On February 22nd, Park Yoo Hwan uploaded the pictures onto his Twitter and wrote, “Busy schedule… I want to see my family.”
In one of the photos, you can see Park Yoohwan smiling happily for the camera with his mother and his older brother, JYJ’s Yoochun. All three family members are dressed in a sophisticated member, with the mother earning especial praise for her elegant black hanbok.
Meanwhile, a different picture displays the brotherly love shared between Yoohwan and Yoochun, as Yoochun is seen draping his arm around Yoohwan’s shoulder.
Although he’s Yoochun’s brother, Park Yoohwan is steadily gaining approval with his own efforts, thanks to his debut acting stint in MBC’s “Shiny Shiny Shining”.
“Hello, I’m rookie actor Park Yoohwan. Please look after me.”
Park Yoohwan was first introduced to the industry as the younger brother of JYJ’s Yoochun, and he recently took his first step away from the title by acting in the drama, “Shiny Shiny Shining.”
“Yesterday, the director said I improved a lot on my acting and praised me. I wasn’t reprimanded that often, but that was my first compliment. I feel great today,” he began.
He plays the role of ‘Han Sun Woo,’ a high school student who now lives with a half-brother 43 years older than him. Because of the secrets surrounding his birth, ‘Han’ is a lonely and secluded character who doesn’t open up easily to others.
Park explained, “I was sweating bullets during my first audition, and I thought I would surely be eliminated because of how awkward I seemed, but they actually said that it was that awkwardness which made me fit with the character. I actually have a bright personality, although I can look a bit shy and reserved on the outside, which I think is what I have in common with my role.”
Unlike other rookie actors, Park wasn’t criticized for any acting deficiencies and fortunately went through a positive debut. Still, he’s able to recognize where he falls short and criticizes himself accordingly. “My pronunciation isn’t that great because I spent most of my time in the U.S. It’s not my tongue or anything, but I do stumble over words because I’m more used to English. It’s something I definitely have to work on, and I am vigilantly reading a lot of the opinions on the message board. Compliments, criticisms, I’m thankful for them all.”
