“TVXQ’s MIROTIC is hard to sing along”

America’s singer Natalie a.k.a Pumashock did a cover of SNSD’s Gee using R&B style making it a hot topic online with over million views on her youtube. For Natalie, TVXQ’s MIROTIC is the hardest to sing along.
On the 4th, Natalie participated a press conference held by Seoul’s Broadcasting System (SBS). That had caused a rise of popularity for her, acknowledging how it feels to be a Korean artist. Natalie said, “MIROTIC’s lyrics are long, the tempo is too fast so it’s hard to take in”. She also mentioned that she decided to sing ‘Gee’ it’s because the song gave her an urge to dance, so that caught her attention/interest.

After listening to ‘Energy’, she expressed that she is happy a musician like BoA is crossing over to America’s music industry. Natalie appraised Star King’s MC Kang Ho Dong as “Best Dresser”, Shinwa is her favorite group, even indicated her love for Kpop music. Natalie will participate on Star King on 7th this month. This again will make her a hot topic.

Posted in Info, Translations with tags on March 4, 2009 by kenkyu

“I would have become the 5th member of TVXQ!”
So said Choi Myeung Seung, who starred in an MBC drama and started out as a member of an idol group. He was offered a place in TVXQ, but rejected it due to his parents’ objections.
In a recent interview, Choi revealed that, “I was offered a contract with SM Entertainment in early 2003 in my first year of high school, but I hesistated” and “I went into negotiating details with SM with my parents, and they were forming TVXQ at that time and the company was interested in recruiting me.”
At that time, SM Entertainment was planning to form TVXQ, who was expected to become a top notch group not only in Korea but also the rest of Asia. However, Choi did not accept the offer due to personal reasons. He then decided to “Work even harder to start [his] showbiz activities with a fresh new look” in order to attain [his] parents’ approval.”
He rejected a large company’s offer due to his dreams of wanting to be an actor, and “dreams of becoming an artist as great as TVXQ”.

[News + Trans] B-PASS 2009 April Issue “Holy Days” – Junsu Interview

Posted in News, Translations with tags , , on March 4, 2009 by kenkyu

Q: When do you find yourself most relaxed?
JS: Taking a good bath after the schedule for the day is completed is the best way to relax. To me, that’s the best moment.

Q: Is it because you like things such as shower cream?
JS: I won’t put in shower creams, being able to take a hot bath in the warmth of the bathroom is the best for of enjoyment. But I won’t spend too long a time in there, I’d come out as soon as I get warm.

Q: Other than that, are there any other times which make you feel relaxed?
JS: When I’m sleeping, that’s the most blissful moments. And when I think about the things that I want to do.

Q: What do you want to do now?
JS: I want to play games now.

Q: Korean online games?
JS: Exactly. I feel very relaxed when gaming as well.

Q: With the members?
JS: Although the games are interesting, its even more exciting when we play together. We do play together if we have the time. Time passes really fast when we do that.

Q: What is the colour that makes you feel relaxed? The colour that calms you down?
JS: I used to like blue, then red. Now its purple. I ended up liking the colour that’s a mixture of red and blue. -laughs-

Q: What do you think of when you see the colour purple?
JS: After the sun sets, a layer of orange sets over the sky, after which it changes to purple. That’s the kind of sky that appears in my mind now. I like the sky that appears at sunset. My mood uplifts when I see that kind of sky and I’d feel relaxed.
Q: What do you do when you get time off?
JS: If I get around 5 days off, I would like to take a good rest in a suburban Korean village. If it’s a longer vacation, I’d like to go for a trip overseas.

Q: What kind of trip?
JS: If I were to go on my own, it’d be quite nice to go to some famous landmarks or tourist spots for sightseeing. I don’t really like cold places. I wouldn’t spend a large sum of money wilfullyto go to a cold country just for skiing. -laughs-
TVXQ once went to an island called Bora Bora, Its really beautiful there and I like the place a lot. I’d like to go there again if I get the chance. Truthfully speaking, that’s the place I want to go most.
Q: Compared to the time when you first debuted, did your expectations of your music change?
JS: I used to think that I must put in more effort. I wouldn’t dislike music, and its not that I’m not working hard now. Isn’t the point to accumulate experience in all areas? So, I feel more freedom now. I feel happy no matter on stage or in the recording studio. Because this not only makes me relaxed, it also allows me to do the things I love. So I feel very enriched now.
Q: When did you start feeling like this?
JS: I started really feeling this at the end of last year’s arena tour. Because we were approaching the 6th anniversary in Korea and 4th in Japan; and the things that TVXQ wanted to do were being realized one by one. So I wanted to hear music that represented TVXQ’s growth.

Q: Are you doing composing now?
JS: I’ve always been. Composing helps me to relieve stress. I’ve always been composing as it makes me forget everything else and its also a hobby of mine. I really like it because I can create a world that solely belongs to me in my compositions.
Q: When do you feel inspired?
JS: Suddenly! Sometimes inspiration just comes all of a sudden, as does the melody. I’d sing it out loud, and if it sounds good, I’d record it down. If I didn’t have any equipment with me I’d record it in my phone.

Q: Its quite a good idea to record it using your phone.
JS: Its really convenient because I carry my mobile with me everywhere, and it has recording functions. Q: If something like “Love” etc were mentioned, what would you think of? JS: Because I’m really young, I haven’t really had much experience of romatic relationships. -laughs- What I think of when “love” is mentioned would be things like pain and missing someone. Because I think that if it was a true love where pain was felt, it would be replaced by missing that person even after you broke up.

Q: Which action of your loved one would make you think she’s cute?
JS: It doesnt matter what she does if she did it for me solely. What do you think?

Q: I agree. If she does it before you knew it, would you feel happy?
JS: Yes. It would feel great when I found out.

Q: What do you most want to do for your beloved now?
JS: Let her see me working even harder. That’s what I want to do.
Work hard and stand on the stage of Tokyo Dome, that’s the goal for this year. I didn’t even dare to think about performing in Tokyo Dome when we first came to Japan. It’d be really great if this dream could actually be realized.

The county of Sendai organised an “Eco Live Sendai” concert on the 28th of February to increase the youths’ awareness of protecting the environment. Popular K and J pop artists such as LGYankees and TVXQ performed and encouraged the idea of preserving the environment, and an extremely good atmosphere was created.

“Environmentally Friendly Bags”, “Saving Water” and “Saving Electricity” were the themes of this concert. In between songs, the performers would share their own little tricks on how to care for the environment. For example, Hiro from LGYankees shared about how he would “link caring for the environment to every tiny action [he] does.”

This year was the fourth year this concert was held. 500 lucky members of the audience received an energy-saving light bulb from a lucky draw.

The concert will be aired on the 20th at 1.10pm (GMT +9).

DBSK Pictures, Images and Photos

A guy from http://www.tvxqbro.com/

I only know,
I like you guys,
not because of your appearances.
It’s only because of your kindness, honesty, courage, genuineness,
only because of your extraordinary strengths.
You guys are my role model,my purpose.
A group of God’s children.

Donated blood because were penniless to buy cookies,
Relief though life’s torturous,
Although the oldest but very pure,
Such Hero JaeJoong,
Who would not like?

Taking on an everlasting mission,
Canonical dancing king,said “I will not let anyone leave” firmly,
Caused everyone to forget that he is only a child.
Loving such U-Know YunHo still need a reason?

Wage because of his little brother,
Tears fall till dawn because of a broken home,
Self learned talented pianist,but says, “I’m not a good composer”.
He is Micky YooChun whom we love so much.

Being called as invincible teenager,
Worked hard for six years to succeed his dream,
Painfully cried a lot when he lost his voice during puberty,
but still never said “give up” these two words.
support you, Xiah Junsu!

Never really talk during variety shows,
Didn’t give up education though live such hectic life,
Humbly says, “I’m not important”.
Sincere, honest, mature.
He is ChoiKang ChangMin whom many are envious of.

Great at rapping,
Heavenly voice,
Perfect composing,
Causes giddiness kind of choreography,
Amazing advancing speed for foreign languages,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Everyone is perfect to the limit,
Timeless perfection,
Making us having hard time to choose our favorite,
Each of them are uniquely perfect,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Whatever the setbacks,
Regardless of the low tide or high tide,
Good times and bad times,
Unity from beginning to the end,
sharing the glory or shame,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Forthright,
innocent,showing everyone their mischievous side,
regardless of their image,
doesn’t have a diva’s attitude.
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Micky YooChun’s perfect sexiness,
ChoiKang ChangMin’s intelligent cuteness,
Xiah JunSu’s artistic talents,
Hero JaeJong’s bumpy indomitableness,
U-Know YunHo’s strong determinations,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

I really want to know,
loving and supporting them really need a reason?
If it’s really necessary for ten thousand reasons,
I’ll still say the same thing for ten thousand times,
“Because universally there’s no one like TVXQ!”

Making it hard for people not to love them.

Cassiopeia understands, that’s why they’ve build one large red ocean.
Heaven’s Cassiopeia will keep shining.

Therefore, please continue to hwaiting! AZA FIGHTING!
Hwaiting together!!
