"If It Could Exceed The Ratings For News In The Same Timeslot"
8:45 PM

TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin is challenging his first TV drama and he expressed his wishes with regards to the drama ratings.

On the afternoon of the 18th, Shim Changmin attended the press conference for the SBS Monday-Tuesday drama “Paradise Meadow”.

Shim Changmin expressed, “Before the filming for the drama, I spoke a lot with the acting seniors in our company and knew that I had to maintain a calm mentality” and “since it’s my first time challenging acting, there definitely would be areas where I’m lacking, so what I wanted to do was to listen to advise modestly and do my utmost best to complete it”.

With regards to the ratings for “Paradise Meadow”, he expressed, “For the viewership ratings for my first piece of work, although it’s a little embarrassing to say this, but I hope that it will exceed the ratings for the news programme in the same time slot.”

-omitted drama synopsis-

TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin transforms as an actor and debuts as Shim Changmin. From the short clip revealed during the press conference, it was unbelievable that it was his first time taking on acting. His voice and pronunciation was mature, his expressions were on point, and we look forward to the day when we see his name on the list of “great actors”.

“Paradise Meadow”, which stars Shim Changmin, Lee Yeonhee, Joo Sang Wook and Yoo Hana, will be the follow up drama for “It’s OK, Daddy’s Girl” and will air at 8.50pm on the 24th of this month.

Max couldn't eat because of kiss scene
8:36 PM

Shim Changmin, who will be making his acting debut through the new SBS Monday-Tuesday drama “Paradise Meadow”, made a joke and expressed that before his kiss scenes, he would be so nervous that he would be unable to eat.

Shim Changmin attended the press conference for “Paradise Meadow”, which took place at 2pm on the 18th. He said, “For half a year I was at Jeju Island for filming and personally, this is my first challenge in acting, so I worked hard and completed it happily.”

With regards to the kiss scene with his label mate Lee Yeonhee, who is also of the same age, Shim Changmin shared his feelings, “I was very nervous about the kissing scenes and from the morning of the day of filming onwards, I wouldn’t be able to eat. I would just keep waiting like that and constantly used mouthwash.”

At this point, Lee Yeonhee joked, “Then before that, you wouldn’t even eat meat?” She also said, “Although I said it’s a kissing scene, it was actually just a cute bobo* scene. I wasn’t burdened by it and it was interesting to film it. I was really happy to watch Changmin being so nervous.”


Choikang Changmin also filmed a kissing scene with Yoo Hana. He expressed, “I was really really nervous. Yoo Hana who I was meeting for the first time and Lee Yeonhee who I saw everyday; I can’t say which filming of the kissing scene was better. Actually, Lee Yeonhee and I are label mates and to me, she’s also a senior in acting as well as a friend, so I learnt a lot from her and she also gave me a lot of advice. Thanks to Yeonhee, my burden while filming was lessened by a lot.”

“Compared to Yeonhee, I’m not that familiar with Yoo Hana, and we didn’t have a lot of time to interact so the result was a little stiff.”

After which Lee Yeonhee smiled and said, “But from what I see, that’s not it at all. While filming with someone so familiar like me, he was very shy. Watching the two of them act when they’re with me, even the looks of jealousy were hilarious. When (he’s) acting with me, he’s very introvert, but when he’s filming with Hana-unnie**, his face was full of smiles. It was only through the monitor that I could see Mr Shim Changmin taking the lead.”

In this TV drama, Shim Changmin’s role is a third generation chaebol’s*** son, 21 year old Han Dong Joo who met 19 year old Da Ji and fell into a passionate love, then got married only to divorce 6 months later. It will air on the 24th.

*bobo = peck on the lips
**unnie = how a female addresses an older female as “older sister”
***chaebol = South Korean privately owned business conglomerates

Max Dishes On Kiss Scene During Paradise Ranch
8:31 PM

The PD and cast members of SBS’s upcoming drama, “Paradise Ranch“, met with reporters at their press conference held on January 18th at the SBS building.

PD Kim Chul Kyu truthfully revealed, “I was quite worried about Changmin’s acting. Every night, I called him into my office and tutored him in acting. Even people who have acted for decades still find trouble with certain elements, and I figured since Changmin’s a rookie, there had to be something he lacked in.”

He continued, “Viewers will feel that his acting isn’t up to par in the beginning episodes of the drama. What’s fortunate is that his acting will quickly become a lot more natural. His role tends to joke around, and is sometimes even cranky, but there’s warmth inside his character. I think those characteristics fit well with Changmin.”

Changmin admitted, “Whenever I had a kiss scene, I wasn’t able to eat or sleep the night before. I think I gargled at least a dozen times. I still don’t know why I was so nervous.”

Actress Lee Yeon Hee, who had been listening to Changmin’s shy confession, commented, “I was a bit nervous because he treated Yoo Ha Na with more ease than me.”

When asked for his thoughts about the various judgments on his acting that will be made after the broadcast of the first episode, Changmin carefully replied, “There will definitely be some who will view my acting in a negative light. I’ll be taking those criticisms in order to learn from them, since I realize that I am still lacking in some aspects. As long as they’re constructive criticisms, I’m prepared to accept them.”

He continued, “However, I worked extremely hard these past six months, so I have no regrets. I’ll be monitoring the episodes every week, and I’m sure I’ll find parts I’d be upset with, but I definitely won’t be disappointed.”

Referring back to the kiss scene, Changmin confessed, “I was already stiff at the fact that I was acting, but the added kiss scene made me even more nervous.”

Lee Yeon Hee clarified, “It’s not so much a kiss scene as it is a light peck on the lips. We had fun filming without any pressure. I actually thought it was funny seeing Changmin so nervous.”

Changmin added, “Yeon Hee is my labelmate, as well as my acting senior. She helped by leading me in our kiss scenes, even though I’m the male (laughter).”

Lee Yeon Hee pouted, “I’m still disappointed about why Changmin would have more fun with Yoo Ha Na and even joke around with her, when he’s mostly silent around me.”

She continued, “Still, he did a great job despite it being his first time acting. It was surprising to see how fast he learned, as time went by. We worked extremely well together.”

Aside from Changmin and Lee Yeon Hee, “Paradise Ranch” also stars Ju Sang Wook and Yoo Ha Na in a story that uses the beautiful scenery of Jeju Island as a backdrop for love between four youths.

The drama began filming in December 2009, and wrapped up six months later in May of 2010. The drama will air in the time slot of “It’s Okay, Daddy’s Daughter,” starting January 24th.

New song "Journey" features Seohyun of SNSD
4:32 PM

According to Korean media reports, the normal version of TVXQ's new ablum 「Keep Your Head Down」, to be released on the 12th, will reveal a new song which features SNSD's Seohyun.

On the 5th of this month, TVXQ released a special version which includes a 100 page photo collection, and this new song will be included on the normal version that is to be released on the 12th. The additional song is "JOURNEY". A song which shows the "throbbing" of a loving couple who go on a trip together, it's a song that showcases the soft vocals of the TVXQ members.

With SNSD's member Seohyun featuring in this song, a "dream collaboration" with TVXQ has been realized. There has also been gathering interest for the fresh look of the TVXQ members which is not seen in the special version.

TVXQ will be promoting on various broadcast music shows - KBS Music Bank on the 14th, MBC Show! Music Core on the 15th, SBS Inkigayo on the 16th - and plans are being made for them to restart their activities.

The preview of "Journey" was released just a little over an hour ago. Now the full version is now available on online websites such as Bugs and Melon. "Journey" features Seohyun of SNSD, whose voice compliments well with the bass and tenor voice of U-know Yunho and Max Changmin of TVXQ.

The songs speaks of a couple who go on a trip together and go on a "journey". This track has been highly anticipated by fans as it gives a fresh look at TVXQ not found in the special version of the album.

"Journey" will also be used as the OST song for Max Changmin's upcoming drama "Paradise Ranch".

5:42 AM


Click for full size

TVXQ's Shim Changmin and actress Lee Yeonhee's "pajama kiss" from the drama [Paradise Meadow] have been revealed.

Lee Yeonhee and Shim Changmin, who act as a newly wed couple, wore cute couple pajamas on their emotional wedding night.

Their eyes shut, holding hands with their lips facing each other, this couple's appearance is full of the scent of an innocent, newlywed husband and wife. This slapstick, romance drama, featuring the visual couple Shim Changmin and Lee Yeonhee, who are a feast for one's eyes, is garnering high expectations from TV audiences.

Meanwhile, [Paradise Meadow] will depict the scandalous love scandal of a youthful couple who are young divorcees ignorant of the ways of the world after getting married at 19 years old, only to be followed by a lightning fast divorce, and it will air on 24 January after [It's OK, Daddy's Girl].

「チーム男子」には必ず「姫」と呼ばれる人がセンターにいる
It says In Tohoshinki, the one in the middle is like a Princess
or something along those lines Hehehe

==TRANSLATIONS

Title: We sprout with “a team boy”!

(T/N: Sprout is a trendy word in Japan.
Hard one to translate. In English it might be, “favor/happy/healed”.)

Recently in the entertainment world, “a team boy” is in the bloom among young people.
The popularity of Arashi, and EXILE keep increasing in numbers steadily;
and these days, the big break thorough of TVXQ is incredable…

Catherine: I saw a terrible crowd at Omotesando Station and wondered what was going on.
All the pillar scrolls of the concourse became the posters of TVXQ,
and everyone was really busy taking photos of them.

Fukuda: TVXQ has been really Hot now. They are casted at Oronamin CM,right?!
Not only that, in that CM setting, Aya Ueto, the commercial queen plays the part which shows her being
totally taken away by the charm of TVXQ. Some special favor is shown to TVXQ for sure.

Catherine: Who is “a princess” of TVXQ?

Fukuda:Isn’t it their main singer JeaJoon? What do you mean by “a princess” though?

Catherine: A person called “a princess”, basically is the one who has a center charm of “a team boy.”

Fukuda: I see, then there might be the matched fellow of “a princess” in “a team boy”,
and there may be a person who is like their staff officer,
and there may be a position to heap up the whole team.

Catherine:Though the team is gathered up in the form to prostrate itself in the charm of “a princess”,
it is not so that the only “a princess” is popular. For example, the center of Arashi is Matsumoto,
but many say I like Nino etc. Kind of like the comic show “Gatcchamen”, in which some say,
“I like Joe”, and others say “I like Ken”. lol

Fukuda: So, it is not simply like, “this person is cool looking, so I like him”.
It is kind of like in the comic book; “Lupan and the coin police man”,
that the fans recognize the relationship of these men, “a team boy” sprout;
and that is the key point for the fans to love them. lol. T
hese fans enjoy seeing the relationships in “a team boy”.

Bigeastation Cuts – If TVXQ are male gigolos, who will be the famous one?
6:23 PM

JJ: Let’s take a look at the next message from **, “Does Korea have gigolo clubs? If there are, who will be the famous one amongst TVXQ members?
YC: For me, I think there will be two of them, yes, it has to be these two. We can call these two as “S-Line,” who are none other than JunSu and JaeJoong. JunSu ah~ Full of charisma and very attractive, though his character is just so so… (JS: HAHAHA…) This is what I think. JaeJoong ah~ Looks like a doll, is pretty and is stylish.
JS: Cold, cold too…
YC: Even though he seems cold to people…
JS: Giving a very calm feeling, that’s…
YC: GENIUS!!!!
JS: That kind of a bad-boy image, that’s how he attracts so many girls.
JJ: No, no…
JS: YA. That’s really nothing…
JJ: No, cannot! If I’m a gigolo, I can’t speak eloquently.
YC: Then you are a gigolo with a good heart?
-ALL LAUGH-
JS: You can only say it if you really meant it in your heart…
JJ: If I’m a gigolo, at least I have to be one who’s able to move people’s hearts.
JS: How about YooChun? Can’t? But YooChun really does have his “S-Line,” you can do it…
JJ: Eh. YooChun can do it, yes.
YC: Maybe I should give it a try…
JS: Then FIGHTING!!

3rd BeeTV Series , ‘Stand by U' as Background Music
3:14 PM


Click for full size

This is not directly related to Tohoshinki… but “Stand by U“, again, is becoming background song of this 3rd series of beeTV “Sweet Room” drama series, “TRIANGLE” (after 1st ep: “Sweet Room”, 2nd ep: “Birthday”).

and I must say, this episode actually suits Tohoshinki’s “Doushite Kimi” song more other than “Stand by U”. Let’s take a look on the storyline:


Click for full size

Highlights:
Takashi is silver accessories designer, Lisa is nurse, and Mamoru is a Cafe clerk.
These three persons are childhood friends.

Since the first time, Takashi and Mamoru are both in love with Lisa.
However, to respect two of her beloved friends’ feelings (as she doesn’t want the friendship to be broken), she has to holdback her own love.

Friendship that lasts among one another, a tender love triangle that has been sealed ever since.
However, a new development in their relationship will finally shift from a sudden event….

[Lawsuit] TVXQ’s Japanese Income Division; Each Member Received “150 million Won”
10:06 AM


Click for full size

Income was divided in the order of Avex-SM Japan-SM-Members… SM Double Acquisition Controversy

An argument that five member group TVXQ, who are currently in a legal dispute with their agency over their exclusive contract and inexact income divisions, earns an extremely low income from their Japanese activities has been put forth.

An influential acquaintance of the three members who are locked in this legal dispute (YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu) stated, “The amount of money TVXQ has earned from when they started their Japanese activities in 2005 till now is a little over 150 million Won per member.”

This is the first time TVXQ’s Japanese activity income division has been referred to in detail.

He explained the income division process in detail saying, “A portion of the money TVXQ earns from their Japanese activities goes to their Japanese agency Avex, and some of it goes to SM Japan. The rest goes to SM Entertainment. Therefore, the members receive only an extremely small portion of the overall income.”

He also added, “SM Entertainment owns more than 90% of SM Japan’s quota and is the parent company of SM Japan,” and conspired that, “Another controversy arises of their Japanese income division because of this.” He stated that, “Since the members have never seen the actual Japanese contract, they have no clue of how the income division is going on between the agencies and are feeling very frustrated with the situation.”

SM Entertainment owns 93.5% of SM Japan’s quota

Actually, according to the quarterly report SM released in May, SM Entertainment owns 93.5% of SM Japan’s quota (On March 31st).

Even the Civil Society Organization has pointed out that there are problems in the way SM Entertainment divides and calculates the income.

Lee Dong-yeon, professor at the Korean National University of Arts, stated, “The money TVXQ earns from their Japanese activities is first divided by Avex and SM Japan who co-manage the group by 50% each, then SM and SM Japan split the money SM Japan got by 50% each. Therefore, TVXQ only receives a small portion of 1/4 of their income, not a portion of their entire income”.

At the debate that was on the prompt ‘The Problems Regarding the Korean Entertainment Management System Revealed Through the TVXQ Dispute and the Solutions To These Problems’, Professor Lee said, “It can be said that SM Japan and SM Entertainment are basically one company therefore SM Entertainment is using this to acquire twice the amount of money they should be getting from TVXQ’s Japanese income.”

Professor Lee also stated that, “It can easily be seen that we obviously cannot say that TVXQ and SM Entertainment have a fair and just contract agreement when carefully reading through the fine print of the contract and taking into consideration TVXQ’s income division and the preposterous amount SME claims they spend on managing TVXQ (In truth, most of this money is actually not included in the income division.)”

On a side note, it has been found that SME did not adhere to the Preservation of Evidence Request that the three TVXQ members filed that was accepted by the Courts. This Preservation of Evidence Request includes all documents relevant to TVXQ’s activities that would help calculate TVXQ’s actual income that include account books, receipts, transfer slips, etc.

On the 21st, the Seoul District Courts asked SME at the first hearing to hand in all documents relevant to the trial, but SME did not follow through.

SME’s lawyer stated before that, “These documents are all company secrets, and it would be fatal to SME if they were released to the media.”

For Hello Kitty’s 35th Anniversary, Jaejoong and Yoochun will be composing a theme song. Currently, only Takashimaya (T/N: a high-end famous department store in Japan) is selling the 35th anniversary special products and it is being offered for a limited time.

Before the launch, the company went to a Japanese rice restaurant where they gathered to enjoy the food. The store was open to them and they were warmly welcomed to their designated area. The food arrived quickly and then they were off. Afterwards, they went to buy Hello Kitty products such as 4 red, 2 green, 4 pink and 6 yellow (the dolls). However, there were no purple Hello Kitty products. The sales clerk said the product was not available because it’s very popular~!
