[TRANS] 110717 JYJ’s Agency States, “KBS Jeju Never Gave An Official Apology”

With a controversy surrounding the sudden cancellation of JYJ’s performance at the KBS Jeju Music Concert for Jeju’s 7 Natural Wonders of the World nomination, JYJ’s representatives denied the claim that KBS Jeju had apologized.

CEO Baek Chang Joo of C-JeS Entertainment stated in a phone conversation with Star News in the afternoon of the 17th, “We have not received a single official apology from KBS Jeju in any form.”

CEO Baek also added, “All we received from the sponsoring representatives was a phone call from a member of the hands-on staff who merely said ‘We’re sorry,’ before we posted our official notice on our homepage. After that, we have not received a single call or an official apology.”

Before the controversy began, JYJ, who are the honorary ambassadors of Jeju’s 7 Natural Wonders of the World nomination, were planning on performing in the ‘Jeju 7 Natural Wonders of the World Nomination KBS Special’ on the 20th.

But on the 16th, JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment posted an official notice on its homepage that read, “JYJ were scheduled to appear in a TV special on the 20th as honorary ambassadors of Jeju’s 7 Wonders nomination, but received a notice today, stating that their appearance has been cancelled.”

They continued to say, “We have currently asked the organizer for the specific reason as to why JYJ’s appearance has been suddenly cancelled.”

Regarding this, a representative of KBS Jeju stated in a phone conversation to Star News that, “KBS Jeju has nothing to do with JYJ’s appearance cancellation,” and “The local government of the Jeju Island is in charge of the overall planning of the music concert which includes selecting the singers who will perform.“

Representatives of the local government of Jeju Island could not be reached and the head office of KBS did not give a clear explanation.

[TRANS] 110717 KBS Jeju Says, “Girls’ Generation And f(x)’s Appearances Will Be More Effective Than JYJ’s”

“Looking at the program as a whole, Girls’ Generation and f(x)’s appearances will be effective.”

Regarding the cancellation of JYJ’s appearance in the ‘Jeju 7 Natural Wonders of the World Nomination KBS Special’, KBS Jeju have revealed their official stance.

A representative of KBS Jeju who is in charge of the special program stated in a phone conversation with MyDaily on the 17th, “Girls’ Generation and f(x) were pushing for an appearance on the program but were unable to due to their schedules. But in the process of preparing for the program, they stated last-minute that they were able to perform,” and “It is the cultural duty of our broadcasting company to introduce many stars to our viewers. We took into consideration what would be most effective for the program as a whole.” This was the explanation that KBS Jeju gave to explain that Girls’ Generation and f(x)’s appearances were what cancelled JYJ’s appearance.

He continued to emphasize that KBS Jeju sent JYJ an official apology, stating, “We have already expressed our sincere apologies to JYJ.”

In a phone conversation with a representative of the Jeju Island’s local government, which is a co-sponsor of the KBS event, stated, “We don’t know anything about the issue. What power or right do we have to ask celebrities to perform in the show? This is something that KBS Jeju did.”

This representative also said, “The local government of Jeju Island has been receiving a flood of complaints on its official homepage because of this happening, but this isn’t something we did,” and expressed that they were being accused of a false charge. There have been many worries that this controversy will negatively affect the number of votes Jeju Island receives for the 7 Natural Wonders of the World poll.

[TRANS] 110717 The Staff And Cast Of ‘Protect The Boss’ All Praise Kim Jaejoong, “He’ll Become A Great Actor”

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, who will be appearing in SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’, has been receiving praise from his fellow cast members for his sincerity and acting talents.

According to SBS on the 17th, Kim Jaejoong began filming scenes for the drama, beginning with a reception scene that was held in the 63 Building, on the 15th.

Playing the role of Mu Won, the prince of the financial world, Kim Jaejoong began acting out his lines with Ji Sung when PD Sohn Jung Hyun gave the signal to start, and his fellow actors who were present began making small exclamations of wonder.

Middle-aged actors who were present to watch Kim Jaejoong’s first filming, including Park Young Gyu, Cha Hwa Yeon and Kim Ha Gyoon, said, “Jaejoong will become a great actor,” and “Let’s help him so he can do better.

Ji Sung, who plays the role of Ji Hun, did very well as a senior actor as he kept the atmosphere light and comfortable while he acted with Kim Jaejoong, receiving praise from the staff members who said, “They’re really great actors.”

The production company said with satisfaction, “Seeing Kim Jaejoong check everything from his lines to his outfit and makeup made us see that though this is the first time he’s acting, his passion doesn’t fall behind when compared to that of other actors.

‘Protect the Boss’ will begin airing on the 3rd of August and will feature stars such as Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee, Wang Ji Hae, Kim Jaejoong, Park Young Gyu, Cha Hwa Yeon and Kim Cheong.

From Tohoshinki-san

From Tohoshinki-san,
I received the new single "Superstar" which was released today.
It was my first time that I performed together with
Yunho-san and Changmin-san (from the left in the pic).
I felt their brilliance as stars, and also their transparency, too.

I felt the difference in their expressions before and after the stage.
The costumes that they were wearing above their transparent shirts were
decorated with many Swarovski crystals.
With their bare skin and crystals blending together,
they had a special aura.

The two members completed a fascinating stage.
When they came down the stage and walked backstage,
they shyly gave me the CD saying
"We are embarrassed at this timing, but please hear our new song!"

Their expressions were obviously different from a few seconds before,
they had returned to their transparent expressions.
At that moment I felt that... they are really stars.

In their new song, the western taste of the 80s are hidden in the digital sounds.
The song has a unique atmosphere, it is a wonderful song.
I felt that I met new charms.

They showed us their amazing vocals and performance,
making me think that I would like to watch their live concert!

[TRANS] 110719 Park Yoochun, Model For “Acting-dol” Hopefuls, Beats The Sophomore Jinx

Singer-actor Park Yoochun has beaten the concerns of a “Sophomore Jinx.”

Through MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley,” Park Yoochun has once again proven that he is very likely to succeed as an actor.

After recieving praise for his natural performance in his debut work “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” The best newcomer winner at the year-end acting awards Park Yoochun challenged the modern day drama with “Miss Ripley.”

After shining in the first project then failing on the second, the concern about a “Sophomore Jinx” was definitely present. The stagnant atmostphere among those called the “acting-dols” who challenged dramas, Park Yoochun, who was also an actor that was “born from a singer” was once again stereotyped by people. This was especially since modern day dramas are different from period dramas. Without same-age actors, and having to act with experienced senior actors for most of the scenes were also a big change from his previous drama.

However, playing the role of the Jang Miri loving, Mondo Group heir Song Yoo Hyun, Park Yoochun displayed a gentle dominance and the forceful charisma of a director, as well as his deep feelings for the woman he loved, a broad variety of emotions.

Especially in the second half of the drama, when he finds out that Jang Miri had approached him on purpose and had forged her resume and qualifications, his display of inner torment earned him the praise that “his acting skills are beyond that of a newcomer’s.

Evaluating his “Miss Ripley” performances, “From his crying scenes to the look in his eyes, Park Yoochun uses various techniques and expressions to convey his emotions, showing us what can be considered as “the progress of Park Yoochun,” a more mature and sombre acting image.”

[TRANS] 110719 (Interview) Kim Jaejoong : “Choi Kang Hee Noona Says I’m 4-Dimensional”

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong has become an actor, and is ready to take on the domestic tv screens. Kim Jaejoong will be participating in the drama that takes over the slot of “City Hunter” starting on 3 August, and although he had acted in Japan with “Sunao Ni Narenakute,” this is his first acting attempt challenging a Korean drama.

Acting Senior Yoochun, instead of advice, just relax.

In “Protect the Boss,” Jaejoong plays the role of Director Cha Mu Won who is called the “Prince of the Financial World,” and is the cousin of “Cha Ji Hyun” played by actor Ji Sung, and the two men end up battling it out for rights to manage the company. Kim Jaejoong said, “After being selected for a role in “Protect the Boss,” the happiest thing is the fact that I’m a member of JYJ. Recently, when I met Yoochun at the salon, we started talking about our current situations. It so happens that Yoochun is playing the role of Director Song Yoo Hyun in MBC’s “Miss Ripley,” and we’re both playing directors, so Yoochun greets me with “Director Cha, how are you, I’m Director Song” or “It’s been a while, the newly appointed Director Cha (Laughs)” I also cannot get much sleep at night so it feels very tiring, so I was advised to take care of myself.

Stamina management is a very important aspect for drama actors, and Kim Jaejoong has also become very passionate about the “Gongjindan (A Korean supplement),” which has gained popularity due to the drama “Greatest Love.” He said, “I’ve always been eating the supplements given to me by fans, and I heard that they are rather expensive, and that you will feel your body condition becoming better after taking them.”

Large gatherings have been held, and the atmosphere is great!

“Although it is still in the early stages of filming, there has been no issues between the actors so far. Ji Sung had even personally organised an MT for the team of “Protect the Boss,” and the atmosphere was very good. The staff and cast exchanged phone numbers with the staff and cast, and have become closer to one another. After the MT, everyone kept in contact via text-messaging. During the MT, I also slept on the same bed as Ji Sung wearing only my underwear. Choi Kang Hee noona often says to me, “Jaejoong-sshi you’re really 4-dimensional” and I reply “Oh? Really?”" (Laughs)

“Despite being the maknae of the cast, the role of mood maker is actually handled by Ji Sung hyung. “From the first script reading, Ji Sung hyung has been providing an enjoyable atmosphere.” Seniors Cha Hwa Yeon and Park Yong Gyu are also constantly giving me advice, so I am really thankful. We have been working in an enjoyable environment all this while.”

Ideal Type? I prefer No Eun Seol to Seo Na Yoon!

In “Protect the Boss,” Kim Jaejoong gets along very well with No Eun Sol (played by Choi Kang Hee) and Seo Na Yoon (played by Wang Ji Hae.) So in reality, which of the two is Kim Jaejoong’s ideal type? “No Eun Sol’s character is loud and she often makes all sorts of mistakes, and Na Yoon is ambitious and proud. If I have to pick between the two, I guess Eun Sol would be closer to my ideal type. A woman who is ambitious and possessive like Na Yoon would be tiring to be with, but of course, if I could piece the two (of them) together, it would be best.”

His requirement for his ideal type is firstly “a girl who gives a good feeling on first sight.” “When I was younger, I became totally obssessed with the drama “Women’s World,” so actresses Kang Soo Yeon and Jeon In Hwa who acted in the drama were previously my ideal types. And so far, there hasn’t been a big change.”

[TRANS] 110717 Have JYJ Become Symbols Of Injustice?

Before we start discussing the topic of JYJ, there are some pre-requisites that need to be explained. This is because this topic may start with JYJ, but the main point that I am trying to make is not only related to JYJ.

Pre-requisite 1: JYJ are Idols

JYJ consists of TVXQ’s “Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun, Hero Jaejoong,” the trio who broke away and re-formed this new unit. TVXQ stands at the pinnacle of the idol world. This is a group that is empowered by being members of TVXQ and as idols, they hold a representative position, and their appearance bears significant meaning.

Naturally, while having a fiercely loyal fanbase, there is also the existence of anti-fans. Therefore, everything is split based on whether or not one is a fan, not based on one’s opinion on an issue. It is not that I want to talk about JYJ, it is that I want to talk about the issue surrounding them, meaning that there is a need to erase the stereotypes that surround the ‘idol’.

Pre-requisite 2: JYJ are Wealthy

JYJ have amassed a large fortune. This is something that we know based on newspaper reports about their assets.

The main focus of their problems is their claims against SM Entertainment for an unfair contract, and many people feel that despite JYJ’s large fortune, they still decided to take their company to court, and this is no different from being a “betrayer.” Saying that they don’t have any gratitude for those who raised them, some criticize them, saying ‘How rich you slaves are.’

Although there may be such feelings, if you think about it, it’s a really simple matter. All the Courts are making a verdict on is whether the contract is unfair or not, which means that how much they have earned till now should not be the main point that is taken into consideration. There is no difference between stealing 50,000 won from someone with 100,000 won or stealing 50,000 won from someone 100 million won. If we criticize a person who earns 100 million Won a year for trying to get his stolen 50,000 Won back, or if society accepts that it is not a crime to steal that much money from someone who earns that much, then we should go knocking on CEO Lee Geon Hee’s door (T/N: Lee Geon Hee is the CEO of one of Korea’s major conglomerates, Samsung). You might be able to get away with stealing 100 million Won from him without it being called a crime. If you wanted to strike gold, you could always try stealing from Bill Gates too.

Though they were the ones who signed the contract, once one is placed in an ‘A’ and ‘B’ relationship in any kind of contract, it may be that ‘B’ can’t help but follow the opinion of ‘A’ and do what ‘A’ says. That is for the Courts to decide.

Therefore, with these pre-requisites, there is no basis in labelling them as wealthy, or as betrayers. The most important point is, “How will the court rule?” Thus, we should not jump into conclusions and judge them before a verdict is called.

Judging from the current situation, JYJ is in a very unfair position. The strangest thing about JYJ’s promotions is that while they are unhampered in their appearance in news reports and dramas, they are unable to participate in entertainment programs.

JYJ has been regularly faced with cancellation of their programs. JYJ recorded a program for QTV that showed their daily lives, and it was to be aired on QTV but it was never broadcasted. Park Yoochun was supposed to appear on KBS’s “Win Win” but that was eventually called off. This time, despite already receiving the cue sheets for their participation in the Jeju promotion event, their appearance was cancelled in the end.

Furthermore, in normal circumstances, when a new drama is about to be aired, the main casts are asked to appear on various variety shows as a form of promotions. However, in the situation of MBC’s “Miss Ripley,” there was no coverage of the press interview, and the main casts did not appear on programs such as “Come to Play.”

To appear in dramas and the news but not on entertainment programs is baffling. Of course, with regards to this, although it has been said by fans that it is the actions of a certain company that are restricting the broadcasts, there has been no clear indication of this and therefore there is a possibility that the said company is not involved.

On the other hand, I believe that the problem lies within the broadcasters because it looks as if they are toying with JYJ as they cast them only in dramas and talk about them only in news reports. In the case of dramas, appearances from these three members ensures a higher selling price for the drama overseas. That is why it seems as though these broadcasting companies are allowing JYJ to appear in their dramas, but not in anything else. It isn’t great to know that they are taking only the things they want and tossing aside everything else. But because JYJ appear in dramas aired by these broadcasters, it is up to the companies on whether or not JYJ get to appear in any of the other programs.

But the situation with the Jeju promotional performance is different. They were appointed as ambassadors for Jeju, and achieved a significant effect in terms of promotions, yet they were rejected from the performance, and this sudden cancellation, despite having their schedules confirmed, is difficult to comprehend. Overseas fans had made plans to come to Korea to watch the performance, which makes it a bigger problem. Furthermore, this issue involves a public broadcaster KBS, making it more unfortunate.

To have been pre-appointed as ambassadors for Jeju island, then having their performance cancelled for no apparent reason is obviously unfair. After gaining the desired publicity effect and then rejecting JYJ creates an image of a bad employer. The large number of fans who have been hurt must also be mentioned. This is not something a public broadcaster should do.

The rumours of an invisible external pressure is something we are unwilling to believe in. There will always be special circumstances, and it is because of these reasons that broadcasts have to be cancelled. Before the court reaches a decision, their artist activities cannot be obstructed. Korea is a country governed by laws. For Korea to have a force that overrides the laws is unimaginable, and there is no way to be sure that this force exists. But if no external forces are at work, I don’t think that someone could just prevent a broadcast from happening. Therefore, I hope that KBS can give a reasonable explanation for the sudden cancellation of JYJ’s broadcast. I hope that we can get a believable reason for this cancellation.

I hope that KBS can bring across the message that “The Republic of Korea is a lawful society, where unfairness cannot exist” to everyone. If KBS’s explanation is not convincing, then it would be regrettable, a pity. This will prove that in the Republic of Korea exists some sort of power that exists outside of the law, or perhaps KBS needs to cater to the fancies of some organizations before producing programs. If this is the case, then obviously, with these powers in place, JYJ is burdened as the sacrificial lambs of unfairness, and will become the symbols of injustice.
