Hello, this is Keyeast.

Due to the many questions raised about the release of Kim Hyun Joong's album in Korea, we will now post a notice with regards to this issue.

Other than [HEAT], the Japanese album that will be released on 4th July, there are currently no plans of Kim Hyun Joong releasing an album in Korea.

With regards to matters related to Naver Japan, we have already requested for the management company in Japan to handle the matters swiftly. Due to some unavoidable circumstances and problems for the activities in Japan, we are in the midst of carrying out additional discussions with the Japanese management company to clarify matters, so as to prevent causing confusion for the fans.

Lastly, we have a request for the fans of Kim Hyun Joong. Please beware of unconfirmed news that has been spreading on various social networking sites, especially those in which no official notice has been released to confirm it. We will be releasing information and news of Kim Hyun Joong's schedules as swiftly as we can once it has been confirmed. Before any official notice has been released, we would like to request for the fans to refrain from spreading any unconfirmed news as well.

[NEWS] Girls’ Generation wins ‘Best Album of the Year’ award in MTV VMAJ 2012!

Posted: 24 Jun 2012 07:30 AM PDT



In the recently unveiled list of winners for the MTV Video Music Awards Japan 2012 (MTV VMAJ 2012), Girls' Generation, also known as Shoujo Jidai in Japan, won the 'Best Album of the Year' award for their first Japanese album 'Girls' Generation' among big name nominees Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Juju and fellow K-pop girl group KARA.



In addition to this award, Girls' Generation were also nominated for the 'Best Video of the Year' award, which eventually went to EXILE for their song 'Rising Sun'.

The group's first full-length Japanese album 'Girls' Generation' was released in June last year and is still recording high sales with the album certified 'Million' by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) earlier this month, which makes them the second Korean artist to have achieved the 'Million' certification after their senior BoA's 'Best of Soul' compilation album more than seven years ago.

Girls' Generation were no strangers to the MTV VMAJ awards as they won two out of three nominations last year, namely the 'Best Group Video' and 'Best Karaokee! Song' awards for the Japanese remake of their hit single 'Genie', where they beat Black Eyed Peas, Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne, Justin Bieber, Ikimono-gakari and w-inds for the awards.

The awards represent the success of the group in Japan, who had made their debut in the country only less than two years ago in August 2010, and their upcoming release 'Paparazzi' has already gotten huge support and response from Japanese and international fans alike. The group has also kicked off their promotional activities for 'Paparazzi' on TV Asahi's 'Music Station' on Friday.

In addition, many netizens who have seen MBLAQ's 'Idol Bus' have said, "Idol Bus? Don't they use it to promote their upcoming album?", "MBLAQ's Idol Bus is the most effective", "MBLAQ's Idol Bus, DAEBAK (Great)!" and " It was really interesting to see the Idol buses".

[NEWS] F.CUZ gets through in Japan 'Second on the weekly chart after 2PM'

Posted: 24 Jun 2012 06:30 AM PDT


Group F.CUZ's Japanese single 'Drawing Heart' released on the 13th reached second on the weekly sales chart at Tower Records. It's a valuable achievement of following hallyu star 2PM, who just finished their Budokan concert. F.CUZ also entered the top 10 of the Oricon chart.

Since last year, F.CUZ has accumulated experience in the local area through various media including radio and variety shows. This result shows their potential as hallyu idols

'Drawing Heart' is their first single after their member changes and was composed by famous Japanese ballad composer KEN For 2 SOULD MUSIC Int. JUNE(WAZZ UP) and F.CUZ's leader Jinon also partook in rapmaking.

F.CUZ's popularity was realized when about 1000 fans gathered for their showcast 'FOR CENTURY ULTIMATE ZEST' held on the 17th at Japan's Tokyo Shibuya 'Akseu' Hall (T/N: Sorry, not sure how to translate). During the showcase, F.CUZ performed 7 songs including their title song 'NO. 1,' giving varied performances.

Last April, F.CUZ broke their long year-and-five-months hiatus with their third mini-album 'F.CUZ (For Century Ultimate Zest)' and confirmed their varied performances and improved live talent after their member change. After F.CUZ completes their promotions for their Japanese single 'Drawing Heart,' they will return to Korea for vocal training and performance configurations for their Korean single to be released near the end of July.

[NEWS] JYJ Indonesia, Fanbase that Loves to Donate

Posted: 24 Jun 2012 05:00 AM PDT


Jakarta – JYJ Fanbase in Indonesia, JYJ Indonesia, was formed at the beginning of 2011. Since parting with TVXQ, JYJ just went back to music industry in the middle of 2010.

JYJ Indonesia was established on January 22th, 2011 by 6 fans. From those 6 fans, there are ones who have idolized JYJ since they were still with TVXQ so they are considered as the mediator between JYJ and TVXQ fans who often argues.

"At first JYJ Indonesia was formed to help promote JYJ related stuff, including concert details, because at that time there were no media for JYJ fans," said one of the admins in JYJ Indonesia, Mira Ammalia, to detikHOT recently.

"There are admins who are fans since TVXQ era, there are also admins who are only fans of JYJ. Because there were no fanbase for JYJ at that time, and there were too many fanwar between TVXQ and JYJ fans, we decided to create this fanbase. The purpose is as a media for JYJ fans and to lessen the amount of fanwar," Mira said.

JYJ Indonesia's activities are not much different from other fanbases. However, there is something remarkable from JYJ Indonesia. It holds donation projects many times already. In fact, they donate to celebrate JYJ members' birthday.

"We rarely hold big gathering, usually we just hang out together every week. We have three projects annually, during JYJ members' birthday. Usually we celebrate their birthday with donation," she said.

There are some projects that they have done so far. They celebrated Yoochun's birthday with Cassiopeia INA in a orphanage on June 2011. Then, Junsu's birthday was celebrated with international project, Mango Tree Project. Money from donation were collected to plant mango trees in Africa.

Lastly, they sent rice to orphanages to welcome Junsu's coming to Indonesia. Junsu successfully held his concert Tarantallegra at June 9 [T/N it should be June 16].

"The rice project was successful. We collected 250 kg of rice which were sent to orphanages. However we didn't take photos because we were in rush," said Mira.

[NEWS] Kim Junsu’s Concert Clashes with Golden Melody Awards; Sexy Charisma Attracts 3,000 Girls

Posted: 23 Jun 2012 11:30 PM PDT


JYJ's Kim Junsu has not been to Taiwan in over a year, and coincidentally his concert clashes with the Golden Melody Awards. However, all 3,600 tickets to "XIA 1st Asia Tour in Taiwan" were sold out, which proves his extreme popularity. During the press conference, Kim Junsu said "Xie Xie" (Thank you in Mandarin) to express his happiness. He also tasted several famous Taiwanese snacks which were prepared by the organizers.

The organizers dished up Chicken chop, Xiao Long Bao, Pineapple cakes, Chinese Rice Dumplings and fruits for Kim Junsu to taste. He said, "I already had a cup of bubbletea in the hotel and watermelon." Looking at the table of delicacies, he happily used Mandarin and said, "Xiao Long Bao", which caused the media to smile. He devoured the delicacies and posed for pictures with the Chinese rice dumpling in accordance with the Duan Wu festival in Taiwan.

The other two members of JYJ, Kim Jaejung and Park Yuchun have expanded and crossed over to the drama department while Kim Junsu has dazzled in musicals. Asked about his male on male kiss while acting as Death in the musical Elisabeth, he truthfully said, "I was a little worried at first, but once I thought that Death is neither male nor female, I could embrace the role and didn't think that it was weird."

His first solo album has sold over 120,000 copies. Kim Junsu explained the special name by saying that it is like a spell that causes people to dance to their heart's content. In the MV, Kim Junsu showed his dancing prowess and his sexy figure pleased fans. He became shy when he heard that, and expressed that he had never wanted to show so much skin, but because he unbuttoned his top when he was resting, the director said that it was good, and the results after filming were satisfactory.

[VIDEO/INTERVIEW] XIA Junsu’s Concert in Taiwan Press Conference

Posted: 23 Jun 2012 11:00 PM PDT




[TRANSCRIPT]

JYJ's Kim Junsu poses with Rice dumplings in accordance with festival in Taiwan; Unfazed by questions about male-on-male kiss.

Looking at this man with a head of grey hair, could it be that Stephen Chow has arrived in Taiwan? Turn to the front, and it's JYJ's Kim Junsu. He has left behind Jae Jung and Yuchun and has come to Taiwan today (June 22) for his solo concert tomorrow night at Taiwan University's sports hall. He is extremely popular even by himself as all 3600 tickets have already been sold out and he also attracted over 200 fans to the airport. The fans screamed their lungs out once they saw Junsu.

His solo album came out in May, but because of the fact that he was contractual disputes with SM Entertainment and has since left TVXQ!, there are rumors that he has been black-listed which renders him unable to promote his album on TV programs.

Reporter: Do you want to participate in variety programs?
Host: As you know, some variety programs…He…He.. maybe you already know…He can't touch them. She meant in Korea. I'm sorry but we have to pass this question.
Junsu: ?????

The translator was not even given the chance to translate the question but it already got pushed aside by the host. Cry. We can ask Junsu about his feelings with regards to the male-on-male kiss in the musical, right?

Junsu: "Death is a character with a neutral gender. Death can be both male or female. Not only does Death kiss Elisabeth, but he/she also kissed Rudolf. This scene proves that Death does not have a gender. I embraced my character as Death, so I didn't think it was weird."
