Donghae’s Past’s Broken Hearted…


Hhh…. I dunno what to write… It’s hurting when I’ve to write about my bias’s past … dark past…

Okay, this is the story:

Even ELFs stated that Donghae is the most romantic person, he always get dumped with the girls he like when he went out with a girl. Then, someday he want to know why and went out with Yunho. Then, Donghae saw a girl that really match with his ideal type and asked for help to Yunho to get her phone number and started to liking each others for a year.

Then, after every 6 month, they lost contact for one month. Donghae curious and revealed that her girlfriend is cheating on him. She has another boyfriend who’s studying aboard and come back every 6 month. BUT, tough Donghae knows that, he’s still loved her… SO LOYAL!!! 😀

He went on to say that since she was getting ready for college entrance exams, he would bring her thermos bottles and fruit, but she always denied his advances.

“I still liked her, so I even waited for her 10 hours one time. I wanted to at least see her. On the first snow, I wanted to make snowmen with her, but she denied my request. That day, I made a snowman the size of Lee Seung Gi.”

“I wanted her to at least see the snowman, but she said no again. I made a miniature snowman, texted it to her, and went to her house. She was tired of my 2-year crush on her, so she told me, ‘You can go now’, and wanted us to separate.”

“After 3 months, she called me crying. She said she remembers how well I treated her and wanted to meet. In that moment, I wanted to be a bad guy. Don’t they say women are attracted to bad boys?

He went on to tell the conclusion to the romance, “I was in pain over her for 2 years and dated her for 28 days. After all the disappointment, I spent my days with the lights off hating the world. I wrote her letters for a year and a half.

At that point, Moon Chaewon interjected and consoled, “For women, bad men are an episode in life, but they don’t hold onto it. You can insult a bad boy, but you can never insult a guy who treated you right.”

JYJ Taiwan Interview !!!

[INTRODUCTION]

MC: Now on our programme, we’ll be watching JYJ’s interview. Later on, during this interview, you’ll see that I showed JYJ something. What is this thing? It’s the ticket stub that I kept after going to watch their live in Tokyo Dome in Japan in June this year.

So I showed it to them during the interview to tell them that I went to watch their performance at the Tokyo Dome. And I also remember that at the end, Jaejoong teared. I saw that too. So when I told them that, he was like, “Wow, why is this announcer like that? he follows us to this extent?” That’s right.

This time they came to Taiwan and I’m sure that they left a deep impression on a lot of our Taiwanese friends. Of course, I think that the person who got the biggest reward is myself, since through this job, I’ve gotten many opportunities to interact with them. For example, meeting them backstage, or meeting them for interviews.

So just before they left Taiwan, they took my ticket stub and looked here and there… I remember it was Jaejoong… so he looked around and found a ballpoint pen. It belonged to the staff, and he started drawing on the back of my ticket stub. After that, he solemnly passed it on to… the second person was Junsu. And Junsu too started to… And the third person was?

It’s Yoochun. Yoochun looked at it for a long time and then signed it. After that they gave it to me (as a gift), because they signed their names on the back of my ticket stub, so I’m really grateful. When we took pictures after that I even felt like they treated me as a friend. Why? Because during the photo-taking, it was a little embarrassing to stand among the three of them and I didn’t know what pose to do. So I just did a “JYJ Jjang!” pose.

All of a sudden, Jaejoong grabbed my thumb and Jaejoong’s thumb (on top)… Junsu grabbed it, so there’s one more right, so Yoochun grabbed it! So we took a photo like that in the end. Prior to this, I shared it with everyone on Weibo (t/n: Chinese version of Twitter).

OK! Now let’s take a look at this exciting interview and also have high expectations because JYJ are going to enter the international market so let’s hope that they will achieve great results and that they can come back to Taiwan again soon.

[INTERVIEW]

MC: Annyeonghasaeyo! Hello everyone! Today, on “We just love JK”, we have with us awesome guests! Yes! They are… JYJ!

JS: Hello everyone (t/n: he says this in Chinese^^)

YC: JYJ!

MC: Yes. We’re really glad that JYJ have come to Taiwan and accepted our interview. First let’s have JYJ greet all their fans and within this greeting, let’s definitely get them to use all the Chinese words that they know, ok?

Caption at 02:39 – (Yoochun) Wants to escape

JS: Hello everyone, I am Kim Junsu. Uhhhh… Are you busy with your job?

Caption at 02:50 – Junsu: Are you busy with your job?

JJ: Hello everyone, I am Kim Jaejoong. Uhhh… hehehe… You wanna dance?

Caption at 03:01 – Jaejoong: You wanna dance? Dance what?

JJ: Oh! You… You all… Us…

JS: (in the BG) Them

JJ: Them.

MC: Awesome!

JJ: Thank you.

YC: Hello everyone, I’m Yoochun.

Caption at 03:20 – Yoochun: Hello everyone

MC: At the very least, Yoochun should know three words… it’s a type of food.

YC: Xiao Long Bao

Caption at 03:29 – Yoochun: Xiao Long Bao. Essential Chinese words that stars have to learn.

MC: Still xiao long bao!

MC: Although their time in Taiwan is really short, but for this short period of time before they leave Taiwan what other thoughts do you have? Please tell everyone.

Caption at 03:43 – How JYJ feel about coming to Taiwan again

JJ: We haven’t been to Taiwan for about 5 years. It’s been a long time but although we haven’t been here in so long, there were a lot of fans who have been waiting for us, cheering us on. I felt really blessed last night.

MC: Yes. How about Junsu say something too. Ok?

JS: Firstly, we also missed Taiwan as a country. Yesterday, we were together with so many fans. Standing on the same stage and looking at them… as well as because we were able to stand on a stage and sing, I felt really blessed.

MC: Alright, does Yoochun want to say something? Yoochun.

YC: Actually, I think what I want to say is pretty similar… We came here to do our showcase and although the time was really short, I hope that if possible, we will be able to do a concert here, so that we can be with everyone for a longer time. I also think that this is something that we should do. It’s also too bad that we didn’t get to eat xiao long bao.

MC: I see. If you have a chance to come here for personal business, do tell me and I’ll bring them out to have fun.

JS: Then remember to leave your number.

Caption at 04:58 – Wants his number on the spot

MC: Ok, I’ll leave it later…

JJ: (raises his hand) All our members think this way… In Asia, the country with the most number of pretty girls is here, in Taiwan.

Caption at 05:09 – His mouth is so SWEET

JS: Because of their image.

MC: Mmm, mmm. Yes, that’s right, that’s right. I can…

JJ: You look like you don’t think so!

MC: Taiwan just has a lot (of pretty girls)…

YC: Most of the people think like that.

MC: Yeah, that’s right. So, if we have a chance personally, we’ll properly introduce some Taiwanese friends to them.

JS+JJ: LOL. (YC claps in awe)

MC: Yeah, like Guo Cai Jie…

JJ: If you come to Korea please call us.

MC: … Cai Yi Lin and so on.

MC: So for us, we were able to work with them on stage last night, I felt like it was really special.

JS: Me too, me too (t/n: in English)

MC: Oh, thank you thank you. Kamsahamnida. Because I specially went to Tokyo during June this year to watch JYJ’s concert.

JS: Ah… Tokyo Dome.

MC: That’s right, at the Tokyo Dome. It was for the programme, to bring stuff back for all the fans here. It was their first concert in Tokyo Dome, so I specially flew there to watch the concert.

JJ+JS: Thank you… (t/n: in Chinese)

MC: I even queued for a really long time just to get the member t-shirts that were sold there.

JS: Thank you (t/n: in Chinese)

YC: Which one did you buy?

MC: I bought all 3.

YC: Ohhhh…

JS: Thank you (t/n: in Chinese)

MC: Yeah. But just as the concert was about to end, as the three of them were really moved, they cried and I saw a lot of the fans crying with them. So from that time until now, when I’m meeting all three of them again, breaking records with this new album – do you have any thoughts on that?

MC: I think the first person to cry then was Jaejoong.

JJ: I cried then.

MC: Yeah…

JJ: During the showcase in Korea, I also said this during the press conference, but at that time, we haven’t stood on stage for a really really long time, so at that moment I just felt really blessed. Also, a lot of things happened last year, so because of all the things that I couldn’t say, the happiness I felt at standing on stage and the sadness I felt; all those things came out together with the tears that fell.

MC: Then, because they collaborated with a lot of internationally acclaimed producers for this album, we heard that there was a lot of changes made in this album. At the beginning when you had to sing songs like this, what’s the difference in singing these songs compared to the style you’re familiar with in the past?

JS: If we’re talking about differences then firstly, we’re not singing in Korean and we have to perform in English, so we weren’t really used to it. And we thought a lot about it. This is also a factor; we also recorded it in America so it’s also something unfamiliar to us. It also includes working with overseas staff, but everything and everyone and all the staff were really kind to us and they’re all really nice people. This was also why we could release our album in East Asia and we could also work hard promoting it.

MC: Then, for them, they’re constantly working so they must be under a lot of stress. So I know that Junsu has 4 cats, this must be to release stress, right?

JS: That’s one of the reasons and also because the house is just a little bit big…

JJ: Huh!

JS: A littttleee, littttleee, little bit. It felt a little empty, so I kept a few kittens to accompany me and to get rid of the loneliness. When you’re sleeping they’ll disturb you from the side… at that time I’ll feel especially happy. And they’re really cute too, yeah… hehehehe.

MC: Then, how about Yoochun?

YC: I have dogs.

MC: He has dogs, I see. You’re away from home for long periods of time, so do you miss your pets?

Woman (in BG): Yoochun says it’s still alright.

MC: Still alright?

JS: They will continue living well on their own.

MC: Then only Jaejoong has showed us the scar after getting scratched by his cat. Oh, there it is. He got scratched by his cat.

JJ: This…

JS+JJ: Was from the claws.

MC: Yeah, he got scratched.

JJ: Yesterday during the showcase, didn’t I say that I wanted to make my cat exercise, so I put him on the running machine? I said that it was for the good of the cat but when I went on to Twitter to check yesterday, everyone said that it was my own fault.

MC: Let’s talk a bit about their future plans. Up until now, all their fans and everyone has been really supportive, so can we talk about what plans you have in the future?

JJ: Right now we’re concentrating on the international promotions for this album, so the most pressing thing is the worldwide showcases. Also, it has been decided that we’ll have our second concert, so we’ll be preparing for the JYJ concert.

MC: OK! So we’ll be looking forward to the plans for the concert and we’re really happy that we could meet them today in Taiwan. I hope that in future they’ll be able to come here often to meet with the Taiwanese fans and there are a lot of pretty ladies that we can introduce to them too. OK! So, we’re really thankful to JYJ for coming to “We just love JK”, thank you!

[RANDOM] Xiah Junsu’s Interview – PATI PATI March 2010 Issue – Tohoshinki PATI PATI BEST SELECTION (Part 1&2)

  • PP: In the lyrics of [My Destiny], there’s one line that goes “Even if I’m reborn again…” If you had a chance to be reborn again, what do you want to be?

Junsu: A soccer player. Because I love singing, so I eventually became a singer, but before that, I dreamed about becoming a soccer player. Even now, as long as there’s time, I’ll play soccer.
Yuchun: I don’t want to be reborn again. But whatever the case, I wish I can be born somewhere else aside from Earth and I want a body free from allergies (laugh).
Junsu: Yuchun really loves dogs but he’s really pitiful as he can’t keep them due to his allergies.

PP: What do you guys think? Just like in the drama, when the wedding has reached its climax and the church doors open to reveal her ex-lover… I feel like he would hold her hand and walk away… Like that, don’t you feel like experiencing that?
Junsu: Then I’ll become the third party (laugh).

PP: Ah, Junsu, you’ve done it again! (laugh) (Like the boy that cried wolf)
Junsu: What are you saying? I definitely won’t do something like that! If I want to do it, I’ll create trouble during your honeymoon (laugh).

PP: You started the year with [Purple Line] and I heard that this song is by the same composer for the songs [Rising Sun] and [O] which are both very popular during concerts.
Junsu: Yes, but the style is different from [Rising Sun]. That is to say, this song is not really Tohoshinki’s usual style.
Junsu: To be honest, after the firs recording, in order to have a higher level of perfection, they let us record it again.
Junsu: The way we vocalised also changed. So the final result was very different.

PP: So, it’s disheartening right from the beginning of the year. Are the oyaji gags from Junsu, which healed these 4 people, finally coming to an end?
Junsu: (cracks an oyaji gag)
Junsu: Then, “If you keep eating a little, how much is a little?” (another oyaji gag)

PP: Do you want a son or daughter?
Junsu: I want 2 sons and I think one daughter would be best.

PP: And the order of birth?
Junsu: First I’ll have a son, followed by another son. After that I’ll have a daughter. But if I haven’t become an adult by then, then I can’t do this (laugh).

PP: The lyrics talk about a guy who fell in love with his friend’s girlfriend. When you saw the lyrics, did you see any similarities with yourself?
Junsu: Yes. Although I’ve not experienced it, but I can more or less understand how the lead feels.

PP: Even though you secretly love her, you can’t confess.
Junsu: It’s really hard.

PP: Jejung seems to be an expert in relationships.
Junsu: He’s really just saying (laugh).

SPECIAL SELECTION OFINTERVIEWS! 2005 >>> 2010 (only post related to junsu)

(Because Tomorrow Will Come) PP: As expected, you’re really candid (laugh). Up until now, your fans seem to be increasing and it seems like Japan has caught the Tohoshinki fever.
Junsu: Ah… it’s still too early to say. We still need to work harder.

(Sky) Junsu: When we were rushing to complete our schedules everyone was so tired they fell asleep and only Yunho was left who felt so energized. Also, just before the airplane lifted off, he even asked for a drink. After this, there were a few occassions when I wanted to swop with him.
Yuchun: But in the recording studio, Junsu becomes a free-spirited person too (laugh).
Junsu: Eh??
Jejung: He’s like a lion, standing on a chair and singing (laugh).
Junsu: This… It’s easier to sing the high notes when I’m standing on a chair. But I definitely won’t do this for the recording this time round, so don’t worry! (laugh)

(Lovin You) PP: What a tragic end. So it’s impossible to meet the girl again.
Junsu: I really like this part.

(Rising Sun) PP: When I first heard [Rising Sun], the memory of the 5 members’ gentle harmony was completely blown away. It was manly and explosive.
Junsu: This song is the title song for our 2nd Korean album and it’s very popular in Korea. But from among our Japanese singles, it’s something that we never had before with very strong dance moves so we were very nervous.

(Summer Dream) PP: Jejung looked really thirsty from the way he drank the water.
Junsu: I think it looks like his saliva is flowing out (laugh).
Junsu: Changmin tried to object against the director for the scene where he drinks from the tap. I want that kind of scene! (laugh)

PP: No. Even if there’s a member that objects to the director, it won’t be Changmin (laugh).
Junsu: Didn’t you know that recently Changmin has become very hardheaded? It’s super scary (laugh).

(Bolero) Junsu: Oh really? This is special songs. (with a weird English accent)
Junsu: Polaris bright…
Junsu: Oh my god! (all burst out laughing)

(Begin) PP: The lyrics also have this. Is there anything that you want to bid farewell to right now?
Junsu: The memory of me losing to Changmin during a game last night (laugh). I’ve never lost before so I’m really surprised that he became so good so quickly.
Yunho: Also, I have a wish regarding Junsu. Please say goodbye to your habit of eating quickly.
Junsu: That’s very difficult… From last time, I’ve never been able to take my time and savour it (laugh).
Junsu: In school, even if it’s just an extra minute to play soccer, I wanted to get it so I developed the habit of eating quickly. Instead of eating, it’s more like I drink it down (laugh).
