[Article] Jaejoong’s Birth Mother’s Blog Entry

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on March 1, 2009 by kenkyu


Dong Bang Shin Ki’s Young Woong Jae Joong, who received much attention lately because of his birth-related matters, hoped that the conflicted relationship between his birth and adoptive parents would be able to resolve peacefully.

Young Woong Jae Joong’s birth mother, Oh-shi, wrote a very long entry in her blog on January 11. In the article, she revealed the things that happened between her and Jae Joong, and her own feelings and thoughts.

She wrote, “Today, I can finally write happily. Jae Jun (Young Woong Jae Joong’s original name) came to my house. This is the first time, since we separated when he was four years old, the first time in 17 years, that I could truely hold him against me as a mother with her own child.” The writing reflected a very happy mood.

Next, Oh-shi explained a bit regarding the hot topic of the lawsuit and Jae Joong’s adoption.

“He was adopted at the age of four…I once almost committed suicide because I missed my son too much.” From Oh’s article, we are able to know that Young Woong Jae Joong (who was named Han Jae Jun at the time) was adopted by a family in Choongnamdo Gongju. She had no choice but to give her son away in order to make a living. Three years later, upon hearing that Jae Joong’s older adoptive sister was getting married, Oh came to Seoul, but was unable to see her son. Afterwards, regardless of how far they were, she went looking for Jae Joong’s elementary and high schools, quietly watching him from afar, before returning home. She described what he was like when he was younger.

Oh-shi, who lived in Kyungkido Mochu, went to Gongju in 2001 in order to see her son. However, JaeJoong’s adoptive mother said, “Jae Joong is well cared for. It is best that you go back.” Although it is very painful, she would wait until JaeJoong became successful before trying to see him again.

In 2003, there was no news of Young Woong Jae Joong. Panicking, Oh phoned Jae Joong’s adoptive parents in Gongju, who told her that Jae Joong had been sent to study in America. However, early in 2004, she found out from a friend of Jae Joong’s that he had became a singer. Going on the internet, she was able to confirm this. All of a sudden, she felt as if her heart stopped beating, and she thought back to the time when she almost committed suicide because she missed her son so much.

The first time that Oh-shi spoke with her son on the phone was in Sept. of 2004. At the time, she was buying the TVXQ Storybook from a store in Kyungkido and was able to obtain Jae Joong’s phone number from a female student there. One month after contacting him, she met him for the first time at Seoul Kangnam.

At the time, Jae Joong’s knee was injured during a dance practice for the promotion of the second album, so he was on crutches when he met with Oh. She said, “At first, we acted cool and smiled when we met. After that, everything went smoothly between us. The longing and quickened heartbeat continued.”

The time of happiness was short. In 2005, problems arose when Jae Joong’s military service came into question. Young Woong Jae Joong was not legally adopted so he has two family registers with his name before adoption, Han Jae Jun, and his name after adoption, Kim Jae Joong. They were told that he would not be able to enrol in military service with his birth name Han Jae Jun.

The police investigation began, and Oh-shi was very anxious. She went around consulting various places about whether her son’s family registers could be changed to a single one.

Because of a reporter in Choongnam Gongju, a lot of misunderstandings arose regarding Jae Joong’s birth parents and the lawsuit they instituted to try to reclaim him as a son. Oh said, “No matter if it is Jae Jun, his adoptive parents in Gongju, or Jae Jun’s birth father and myself, everyone felt pained because of this incident.”

Next, Oh said, “Nobody did this intentionally with the child as the goal. I also did not do this in order to receive any money or reward. Everyone’s misunderstandings and biased views are like an incurable disease to us.”

Oh-shi said that Young Woong Jae Joong wanted to discuss and resolve the problem peacefully. He wanted to live as Kim Jae Joong, and wanted his adoptive parents and birth parents to be able to live together. Young Woong Jae Joong’s wish all along had been for both families to be able to live sweetly and happily together, until death.

Oh-shi said, “Gongju unnie (Jae Joong’s adoptive mother) sent rice cakes and fruits to Jae Jun. We planned to go on a vacation together and go to TVXQ’s next concert. We might even live together in the future. Jae Joong always said that he wanted to have two mothers to be with him. Jae Joong really loves and respects his Gongju mother.” We are able to understand this.

Next, she said, “I hope that all the misunderstandings would be able to disappear and not become an obstacle in everyone’s lives. Jae Joong is very happy now. His Gongju mother is a virtuous person, her joy comes from being able to give the children food and clothing. I am also thankful towards the encouragement and support that his sisters and adoptive mother always gave him. I hope that I will always be able to maintain a good relationship with this family and that from now on, this feeling will never change.”

Oh-shi said that she did not have the ability to be together with Jae Joong, doing the things that a mother should do, but she has always been working hard.

Oh said, “My lucky son Jae Jun who has the love of everyone from two families, Jae Joong fighting!” …she then said, “Gongju unnie, I am very grateful for everything you have done. I will pray for you everyday, wishing you constant happiness, smiles, and good health.”

She also stated that it is good to see that Young Woong Jae Joong, who often seemed to have such a sad expression, is becoming happier.

Oh said, “Jae Joong told me to come to the concert in February with his Gongju parents. We are looking forward to seeing our wonderful son, singing for his family, for his fans, with his beautiful and sensuous voice. Dong Bang Shin Ki fighting!”

Reflecting, Oh-shi then said, “That time when Jae Joong had to be sent away was the hardest time period. That was a long-lasting pain, a time of suffering and regret. Gongju unnie with her generosity raised him properly. I really am incredibly thankful towards her.”

[News + Interview] 5.5 Hours with DBSK- Hero Jaejoong Version

Posted in News with tags , on February 12, 2009 by kenkyu

Q: Saw you guys eating jjajungmyun just now, its really amazing.
A: There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, the fans have seen us eating that so many times.

Q: You’re a really unique person out of the 5 of you. I heard that you’re only left with facial expressions at times?
A: No, its definitely not like this.

Q: I dreamt that I was playing soccer with you last night. Seems like this is something that will never happen in my lifetime…
A: It might just happen. Let’s go play soccer during the weekend. I really like soccer, I even watched the club league. (T/N: I think he means some soccer league in Korea or something..)

Q: Really? So what does Hero Jaejoong think of Park Ji-lee’s soccer skills? Do give your rating.
A: 9 points. His attack was really smooth. He also helps his teammates, gives them good chances for scoring and attacking.

Q: Do you want to meet him, just like how your fans want to meet you?
A: He was in the same school as Yunho and Junsu. I’d definitely get his autograph if i met him.

Q: I heard you’re not really good at sports in fact. It won’t do if you get injured, right, because you’re really precious.
A: I tore my ligament previously when I was practicing a dance; I had surgery for that. I only exercised once after that, and my knee hurt a lot whenever anyone touched it. After that, I didn’t really dare to exercise anymore because it felt dangerous. The doctor also said that even a surgery wouldn’t help if I injured it again.

Q: What did you do for your 10-day break?
A: I went to visit my parents and friends. I also worked on composing songs when I had nothing to do.

Q: Who was with you then?
A: Nobody. I drove home myself.

Q: What car was it?
A: I’d tell you if you don’t publish it.

Q: What’s the difference?
A: Well…

Q: Seems like the fans know everything about you. They can even list out your schedule.
A: They even know how many beds we have in our bedroom.

Q: What, but there isn’t anything wrong with that right, there must be 5 beds if there are 5 of you.
A: 3.

Q: All 5 of you sleep there?
A: Our manager and 2 members sleep in a room. Junsu has a room, and another manager has a room. I sleep in the living room.

Q: The singer sleeps in the living room and the manager in the room?
A: I think its great sleeping in the living room, I like the space. I wake up naturally when people walk around in the morning.

Q: As a cultural icon of its time, students may be learning about DBSK in history texts in future. What would you want people to remember Hero Jaejoong as?
A: That my motto is “world peace”.

Q: World peace?
A: That would make the history textbooks comical.

Q: International idols have done a lot for the world- adopting children in Africa, encouraging people to help the disappearing rainforests and melting ice caps. What would you do to help achieve world peace?
A: I was just thinking about it, haven’t put anything into action yet. I once shouted from a stage in Japan, “Stop polluting the Earth!”
