My manager graduated from the Marine Corps and the guards basically swim very well. Instead of saying I’m good at swimming, it’s more that I like water. Actually there is nothing much to do in the hotel, I mostly listen to music, do some writing or sleep. During this recent tour, I was addicted to swimming because every hotel had a swimming pool. First time I grasped the butterfly style and also paid attention to backstroke and freestyle. It was very enjoyable and the stress instantly disappeared.

JYJ Kim Jaejoong’s first solo album is getting a good response even in Japan.
According to Oricon, Japan’s most prestigious music sales chart, Kim Jaejoong’s album ‘I’ ranked no 4 in Overseas album chart and no 8 in overall weekly chart on the week of January 21-27. Kim Jaejoong has sold 20,117 copies just after 10 days since it was released last January 18 in Japan.
This album in Korean, which was released in Japan without promotion, but still ranked high is considered unusual. It should be noted that the number of copies that have not gone thru official Japanese distributor companies were not aggregated or considered in the chart.*
Kim Jaejoong’s album has garnered interest and has been sold out even without promotion which is a rare occurence. It also became no 1 on iTunes rock chart in 9 countries overseas, including Japan. Recently, C-jes entertainment has produced an additional 20,000 copies since 120,000 copies initially produced were all sold.
Kim Jaejoong’s first solo mini-album ‘I’ is classified under rock genre, the intense sound of the title track ‘Mine’ and pre-released song ‘One Kiss’, sweet voice with compelling lyrical songs ‘There’s Only You’, ‘My Only Comfort’, ‘All Alone’, have reached a high level of popularity and has garnered rave reviews.
Kim Jaejoong will proceed with ‘Your, My, Mine’ Asia tour in February after successfully completing a mini-concert and fanmeeting with more than 16,000 fans attending last Jan 26-27.
T/N: * The 20,117 copies are from official Japan distributors like Tower Records, HMV, etc. The albums bought by Japanese fans who ordered directly from Korea (to help in Hanteo) were not counted.

Yesterday, Yoon Eun Hye held a press conference; and today, there were numerous articles and interviews with her released.
I invited Park YooChun and Yoo SeungHo to go eat together.
In the past when my acting partner asked me to go eat together I would think “Why am I being asked to go eat together? Does he want to be misunderstood? But now suddenly I’m acting that way. (laugh) Of course with my personality I cannot be that aggressive/active either but still if we were to work on a project together we need to get friendly so I invited them to go eat together. YooChun-ssi and SeungHo-ssi are both the type that doesn’t get friendly too easily so at first the reaction was lukewarm. (laugh) I brought out my courage to approach them, so I did receive a little hurt. (laugh) But then later we got friendlier and both actors are compassionate so we could depend on each other a lot.
