Answer by C-jes on the phone: ”..as to QTV, it’s now been just delayed, and it doesn’t mean that it won’t be aired. Close shooting has still been being undertaken. As to Jae’s drama, nothing has been confirmed, nor they have nothing to announce for now. And as to 3HREE VOICES, it hasn’t yet been fixed when to start nor for how much to sell it, also it has nothing to do with AVEX”
According to JYJ’s management company, C-Jes, JYJ are headed off to Japan to film the second season of 3hree Voices.
The filming for Jaejoong and Yoochun’s segments begin tomorrow, February 23rd, and last until the 26th.
Junsu will film his segment in March after his obligations with his musical, Tears of Heaven, are finished.
Let’s give Jaejoong and JYJ our full love and support for this project!
“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.”

We have translated our post on the Korean blog so that more people may read this article. We previously said we would bring you a “summary” of the 625 meeting, but it seems that this series of posts actually might be a bit longer than the transcription LOL Don’t worry, we have divided it up to 5 parts so that you don’t have to take it in all at once. But this will summarize, analyze what HoTels are saying about Jaejoong, Yuchun, and Junsu (JYJ) on what grounds, and refute it all in detail. This one is only part 1 of 5 and is more like a introduction to the whole deal , but it still is very informative.
The Courts have sided with JYJ once more. They dismissed both the formal objection against JYJ’s injunction and the exclusive contract suspension injunction filed by SM against JYJ. As this is just a dismissal of SM’s formal objection, we cannot dare to predict the outcome of the lawsuit yet. But it is true that the Courts’ decision to accept JYJ’s injunction and to dismiss SM’s objection gives JYJ much hope. Although JYJ have won, they have not truly won. It would stay the same even if JYJ go on to win the actual lawsuit as well.
The reason JYJ have been unable to appear on music programs, though they fervently wish to be active domestically, is irrelevant to the Courts’ verdict. Though some say that it is because broadcasting companies are busy treading on glass to be in SM’s good graces, it would be more precise to pinpoint the problem on a coalition between entertainment agencies and broadcasting companies. The majority of variety programs rely on idols, and SM’s share in TV shows is as big as the size of the company. Even common sense can explain why broadcasting companies would choose SM, with its plethora of idols, over a three-membered JYJ. Whether this is true or not, what is important is that PDs are denying JYJ of appearances on music programs, something fans and even PDs themselves want.
The TVXQ crisis, which had the same effect on the Korean entertainment industry as a beehive getting shoved into a room, is one that will not be solved unless both sides learn to compromise, which may sound cowardly. This means that both sides must free themselves of the dichotomy that SM is pure evil and that JYJ are ungrateful traitors. This is something TVXQ and JYJ’s fans must definitely keep in mind. It is quite pitiful that people who used to be one family have now split up and are acting as anti fans. If you liked them as five, then shouldn’t you like them as two and three? There is no need to search for the traitors between the group that stayed with SM and the group that left.
Why is it that people can’t just be content with liking their star and feel the need to become someone else’s anti fan? The Korean fandom seems to have an aggressive nature that attacks any and all competitors. But this doesn’t stop within the fandom community; this aggressive characteristic bleeds into comments online, having a negative impact on the online community. With fans like this, it’s no wonder that agencies use violent acts such as malevolently interfering with activities.
BoA’s mother, Sung Young Ja, guested on tvN’s morning talk show, “Brunch,” and shared her thoughts on BoA’s income, her relationship with SM Entertainment, as well as her view on the current KARA lawsuit.
Sung, who previously published a book on her know-hows of raising a Hallyu star, a pianist, and a music director, began by stating, “In a society driven by competition like today, it’s only when they’re allowed to play and experience to their heart’s content that they discover what is truly best for them. Becoming a mother who is like a friend and a sister is very important in raising children.”
On managing BoA’s income and investment techniques, she commented, “I personally manage BoA’s income. As opposed to going ‘all-in’ in one area, it’s important to diversify your investments.”
When asked about the ongoing disputes between JYJ, KARA, and other celebrities against their agencies, Sung Young Ja revealed, “Instead of looking at the money, one should live life as honestly as possible. You should never hurt the feelings of another, because when you achieve honor, money naturally follows.”
Check out the full segment, as well as her thoughts on how BoA has been able to manage her relationship with SM Entertainment, through tvN at 10:00 AM KST on February 21st.
I think SM and SM’s shareholders are using their last cards to take JYJ down. JYJ’s fans we must act wisely and not fall into the trap.
