Singer-actor Kim Jae Joong (JYJ) recently humored fans with his twitter conversation with former co-star Jin Lee Han (or Jin Yihan). On September 2, Kim Jae Joong tweeted, “A screaming kimbab monk Jin Lee Han made me.,” and attached a photo of the “artwork.” He then followed with another tweet, writing, “This is the ahjumma with the kimbab perm that I made,” and attached another photo.
As shown in the photos, Kim Jae Joong and Jin Lee Han’s works of art were made with kimbab, fried tofu wraps, and ketchup. Netizens also observed the similarity to Jin Lee Han’s “screaming monk” to the famous painting “The Scream” by Edvard Munch. Netizens commented, “Haha that’s so funny,” So cute. They look like they’re having fun,” “Tsk tsk playing with their food,” “They were best friends on-screen, looks like they’re pretty close off-screen too,” and more.
Meanwhile, Kim Jae Joong and Jin Lee Hwan starred as Kim Kyung Tak and Hong Young Hwi respectively in MBC’s “Dr. Jin.” The two showed great onscreen chemistry, and fans have coined them the “Takhwi couple.
JYJ’s Xia Junsu was present at the C-JES Open Audition on September 1. He is already in Los Angeles in preparation for his concert at the Hollywood Palladium on September 2.
JYJ’s Jae Joong was recently selected as the most handsome idol singer.
Lamar Cosmetic Surgery surveyed 634 customers about the most handsome idol singer who has a perfect face, from August 13 to 31. As a result, Jae Joong ranked first, receiving 178 votes (28 percent).

The people who participated in the survey commented: “I envy Jae Joong’s face.” “Jae Joong might not be a human being because he’s too perfect.” “Jae Joong is so handsome! He’s great!” “Jae Joong is not only handsome but also good at acting and singing.”
Kim Dong Jun, the chief doctor of Lamar Cosmetic Surgery, says, “Jae Joong not only has big eyes, a high nose, and a sharp chin but also has white, clean skin. I think that’s why many people selected Jae Joong as the most handsome idol singer.”

In New York, K-pop rewrote its history.
On August 30, JYJ member Kim Junsu started his first world tour in New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Until now, idol groups, girl groups, and agency ‘families’ have gone on these, but Kim Junsu is the fist solo artist to start a world tour alone.
To that extent, the New York performance had a special meaning to K-pop. This was a breakthrough not only for Kim Junsu, but also for K-pop, which had been hampered by limited genres and artists.
▶ The reason why – even though he had gathered 100,000 fans before – Junsu only performed in front of 2000.
No more words are necessary. Kim Junsu is an artist that represents K-pop. The group he belongs to, JYJ, shocked not only the Japanese media but also Korean music authorities because the group gathered about 100,000 fans within two days at the concert that was held in Tokyo Dome in June 2010.
If you consider his fame, the small stage could be unfamiliar and awkward for him because the tour started in a stadium that could only hold 3000 people.
However, this was only a small part of the long-term project for Junsu to jump up to become a world star. His agency representative, Baek Chang Ju, said,
“In order to perform in many cities worldwide and not end in one-and-done performance by being overly attached to scale, he performed in a small venue. ALso, in stead of receiving guarantees from a local promoter, the company is directly investing to run the tour.”
The reaction of 2000 fans that were able to obtain the ticket was fanatic. It was easy to find many women fans in their twenties not only from Asia but also from U.S., Canada, and Spain.
“Junsu“, “Junsu”, “Junsu”, chanted the crowd, at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Xia, also known as Junsu, sat silently upon his throne at the top of the stage observing the crowd. It was about halfway through the concert on the first stop of his 1st Solo World Tour. The crowd continued to chant and scream for more. Xia who had just performed about 10 songs, many from his new album Tarantallegra, was calmly taking it all. The crowd had fallen in love.
At the start of the show, Xia who had been lifted unto the stage on a moving platform was dressed in a blue suit with long black boots. He started off strong, with the first track on his new album, called “Breath.” “Breath” is a song with an urban pop theme and strong beats, to which Xia and his dancing crew seemed to move with in unison, effortlessly.
