“You don’t happen to gain confidence just because you clench your teeth and get determined to have it. You’ll have it unknowingly as you gradually build your inner beauty. One odd thing is that the more you try to fill yourself with inner beauty, the more confident you become and tenderness along with modesty will grow inside you.”
<Morning Letter> by Ko Do Won
Confidence isn’t gained by suddenly clenching your teeth one day and saying you’re determined (to become more confident). It comes naturally when you fill your inner self with skills. For sure, your sense of confidence will become stronger as your inner self becomes more skilled, but your sense of tenderness and humility will develop as well.

[TRANS] Waiting can make you endure many more..
can make you see farther..
can make you have bright eyes in the dark.
JYJ3’s Note: this is a quote from the book “Letters From Prison” / “Reflections From Prison” (1988) by author and activist Shin Young-Bok.
[TRANS] Ah.. Finally, I cried in a second after reading this page..
“In the corner that we have walked in each of our life, someone who goes to see you off the longest and farthest is our family.”
JYJ3’s Note: this quote is from a book by author Kwon Mi-Kyung titled “아랫목” (2005). 아랫목 is a warmer part of an ondol floor, which is a heating system used in traditional homes in Korea.
[TRANS] Family.. has various meanings..
The common things that we have felt in this world as a human.. not belong to anything
Not to talk about justified reasons such as nation, blood relations or something..
Anyway, the most significant thing is..
Now I’m really thankful to my family..
[TRANS] I like it.. If it’s only one or a hundred.
If he/she is only one or they are a hundred, you just should take care of your business..
[TRANS] Did you already risk your life because of matters like these things today?

Though he only appeared for two minutes, reactions to Kim Jae Joong′s appearance on a Japanese show have been much more explosive.
The singer recently appeared in an episode of BS 11′s Han Love. He had been teaching Park Yoo Hwan Japanese for his upcoming drama fanmeeting.
A rep from C-JeS Entertainment commented about his appearance, “He only appeared for two minutes but the items he wore that day have been selling out in online sites in Japan, and the video of Han Love has been exploding all across the web.”
A source from the Japanese broadcast said, “Even we were surprised at the responses from his short appearance. We believe it would have been a nice greeting because the group has been finding it hard to reappear on TV since 2010.”
Though his group has lacked televised promotions, Kim Jae Joong′s dramas Protect the Boss and Dr. Jin have been fairly popular in the country. JYJ’s Jaejoong also held an exclusive concert at the Yokohama Arena before 45,000 fans.
Kim Jae Joong is currently taking a break after his Asia tour, and soon plans to meet fans with his next piece.
