Note: This is just a summary of main point of what Kim Yeong Beom answered during his interview.
“Interview” The exclusive interview of the CEO of the Korean fusion restaurant “Bum’s Story” owned by Jaejoong and Yoochun! Revealing the origin of the restaurant`s name for the first time in public!
Japanese－Korean Fusion dining grill “Bum’s Akasaka” was opened December 17th, last year in Akasaka, Tokyo.
This restaurant is the first branch to be opened in Japan which is a collaboration of “Bum’s Story” and Botechu group.
Early in July, after 7 months since Akasaka branch opened, Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Kim Yeong Beom, came to Japan all together.
Despite of their tight schedule, the interview of the president, Kim Yeong Beom, was held at Bum’s Akasaka.
What triggered them to open Japanese-Korean fusion restaurant in Korea is because the president Kim Yeong Beom, had opportunities to have drinks with Jaejoong privately, and they talked about making their own space. Yoochun told him that he wants to join too, so 3 of them decided to open the restaurant.
Kim Yeong Beom originally worked in show business, so he had many friends, and especially he became friends with Jaejoong and Yoochun. He doesn’t see Junsu that much privately because Junsu doesn’t drink alcohol. Yoochun and Kim Yeong Beom have always talked about starting business together, so Yoochun told him that he also wants to join this business.
The concept of “Bum’s Story” in Korea is “casual enjoyable place for foods and drinks (alcoholic beverage)”; JYJ fans and other people, even some celebrities come visit there.
