[08.09.30][trans] Minwoo's 4th album jacket shoot #6

Everytime a shot was taken, M would paste the Polaroid shot on the wall and carefully scrutinize it

The moment where all the staff members gather around M,
Fixing his hair, slathering on shiny cream on him, or checking on his clothes,
Checking and checking....for one good photo
There were many pairs of hands working tirelessly for it.

To get the popular White M painted on,
It was a process of painting, removing and repainting.
The final M is perfect!!

Close to the end of the shoot...everyone was already exhausted
All our senses had already abandoned us with the shoot extending beyond midnight,
M sat on the floor silently during the change of lighting
What exactly was going through his mind..

M who needs his time alone too, taking a break during the shoot~
M sitting there enjoying the warm sunlight~

Making a gorgeous expression and pose~

And quickly changing into a mischievous boy
M's endless charisma
He was in a good mood the moment he stepped into the studio
And kept a bright expression throughout
Maybe that's why the 4th album photos look exceptionally cheerful and warm

[08.09.30][News] Lee Hyun Ji disclosed the secret of the kiss marks on JunJin's face

[Extract from Lee Hyun Ji's interview with Joon Gang]

Q: We heard that you just released a new album. What is the title song?

A: That's a single called "Kiss me kiss me". I also did a music video for that song with singer JunJin. For my last album, he has especially appeared in my music video. The song's tones are sweet and addictive.

Q: Tell us about about the MV?

A: JunJin in the MV had a lot of kiss marks on his face, his cheeks. But those are not mine. Initially, we intended to use my lipsticks, but the marks were too small and they didn't look sexily (full lips are sexy, aren't they?). So, the recording manager came up with a breakthrough idea: using a man's lips. One of our staff left the kiss marks all over JunJin ssi face. The set was so funny, all of us couldn't help laughing. JunJin oppa unwillingly accepted the "weird kisses" and after finishing, it was our manager getting attacked. *laughs*

[08.09.30][news] KBS will not broadcast Junjin's new MV for The Words of Love

The MV for singer Junjin's new song The Words of Love will not be broadcast on KBS.

Junjin's management company Open World Entertainment said on 29th Sept that the MV for his follow-up single The Words of Love has been banned from broadcast on KBS after a censorship review by the KBS censorship panel. This is reportedly due to a line from Eric's rap lyrics in the song.

Because of this, Open World had submitted another 100 copies of the album with the song omitting the lyrics in question to KBS, but were still rejected as the color of album cover of the copies differed from the original copy of the album.

Open World said, "What needs to be vetted are the lyrics and not the color of the CD cover. By rejecting this it seems that the station is being unreasonable."

Junjin released his repackaged album at the end of August, but have been unable to promote the album due to his packed schedule of variety show appearances and his concert in early Sept. He is now preparing to embark on the promotion for the album on music programs after completing the shoot for the MV of The Words Of Love.

The Words of Love features Eric on rap and Monday Kiz's Jinsung on vocals, and the MV also features Lee Hyunji.

Singer JunJin and KBS fight over his new song "Saying I love you" has become the dominant topic for discussion within music industry these days.

On 30th of September, Open World Entertainment told the News Agency about the issue: "We cannot understand the problem. From the lyrics to the jacket, it seems like we can never meet their high standards. We cannot, in order to satisfy KBS, spend millions of won to create separate CDs."

"This is a very serious issue, since it involes funds from producing factories and retailers, at the end, all of us must shoulder a huge loss. This is totally unreasonable."

"Hundreds of thousands of copies have been delivered to retail stores and we cannot possibly collect back and replace with new versions."

In KBS stand, "the disqualification of JunJin's new album" is an irreversible issue, in order to maintain "the integrity of music industry" - "This is not "a song" issue, this is the matter of "rules" since JunJin's album producing process doesn't fit the rules".

The growing opposition between JunJin's side and KBS's side has put both of them into a very tough position, and the damage cannot be measured.

[08.09.29][News] Singer JunJin - "I am now confident to play the game by myself"

Moving forward with his 1st solo album repackage and various TV performances, singer JunJin has established his position as the "Hottest Star". Popular with male and female, young and old, he is in his primetime as a solo artist after 10 years with Shinhwa.

Towards his Shinhwa's members, JunJin said "Usually we would see each other by face, now most of the time, we see each other through TV screen. I'm in need to meet them more."

Towards the next steps in his solo career, JunJin expressed "I just think I must go on! I have no fear!" - these are the strong determination and the genuine passion that we can always feel in JunJin.

"Junstin Jinberlake", "Tireless Man", "Energizer", "Dancing King" are just some of his countless nicknames given by fans and netizens.

Meeting JunJin recently, we could obviously see his swollen and tired eyes.

"In Thursday, I recorded "Infinity Challenges", Sunday "YSMM", during spare time "High School Girls 4", and some other guest appearances such as in "Family Outing", "Immortal Music", ect. The repackage "Together 4ever" was released nearly a month ago but I still couldn't find time to promote it. Activities in China and Japan are also waiting for me. Honestly, there's no day to take a break."

Being in the entertainment industry for 10 years, now the singer is playing the game alone all by himself, with a strong self-confidence and comfortability.

"Now we are working as solo artists, singer or actor", JunJin said, "I sometimes believe that there was a sloth once in a while". "That's not always easy to share your inside thoughts, but recently in MBC program "Golden Fishery", I realised that there was nothing to fear. After all, being frank is the best way to overcome the obstacles." - smiled JunJin.

"It is hard to make money. When you're young, you work hard and earn as much as you can." - JunJin laughs.

"Some years ago, my father lost a good amount of money in an accident. People would think that Shinhwa members must have accumulated great wealth. But actually, my bank account balance was at Zero. Well, it's my pride not to tell anyone about that."

JunJin's parents, grandmother and his dependent aunt lived together in a small house. After his birth mother left, JunJin's father remarried twice. The singer was always looking for his birth's mom, and eventually, he got to see her by face.

"My current mother has always been by my side. During Shinhwa's time, I was suffering terrible panic disorder. It was mom who always smiled at me and encouraged me the most. That is the power of love."

After the successful concert in Japan, JunJin conquered domestic market with his stunning concerts in Seoul on September 5th and 6th.

"We had a lot of fun during the concerts. I enjoyed that great time and I hope the fans did as well. I started solo activities a little bit late to compare with Lee Min Woo and Shin Hye Sung. But I think that's not necessarily a disadvantage since I have more time to prepare and get ready."

Powerful, magnetic, great personality, he is the well-loved artist of the public.

"I think every singer has different charm. I may not be the best singer, but I'm trying to put all my efforts and emotions into the songs I perform."

"Turning from a rapper to a vocalist, I am now confident to play the game all by myself."

"I always love acting. I consider it at the same weight as singing, but obviously, I have to keep working harder."

Besides the release of his repackage including a new song recorded with Shinhwa's Eric "Saying I love you", from now to December, the singer's schedule is totally filled in with many stage performances in Japan, Korea, China, and Singapore.

The guests said, “When Shinhwa members are together, they do not appear that they will do such things”, “It’s different from what is seen, must be very careful”, Shin Hyesung joked.

For Shin Hye Sung, if a problem came up or if it looked like the food wasn't turning out properly while cooking dinner. He would ask, "By chance, is that because of me?" Or he would ask, "Is it usually like this? Is it this way after I came here?" Coming across to the family as a one who quick to notice what is going on as well as a man who is cautious.

Japanese teen magazines are exploding with the Korean wave and popular singer JunJin is obviously one of the most featured.

The recent issue of Male fashion magazine "COVER" had in its cover a JunJin-look-alike picture. The issue soon became very hot and sold out. The readers found the male model really similar to their favourite star with the dark eye brows, the clung, and the intense staring eyes.

The picture was also scanned and uploaded in Japanese and Korean portal sites and attracted a lot of viewers. Some netizens commented that it looked more like JunJin's father Charlie Park, or it could be the singer himself in the future (?).

Moreover, MBC IC member Park Myung Soo was also "found" in Japanese mag "Bicyle 21". We have to admit that the Japanese model really looked like our comedian.

[08.09.20][news] DW "Fans even after we go to the army please remember Shinhwa"

Singer Kim Dong Wan apart from Shinhwa has put his name on the line as he has his first and last solo concert before he enters the army.

On the 20th, Kim Dong Wan will have his first solo concert in Seoul at the Ewha's Women University since he debuted 10 years ago and shared about his feelings. The concert is entitled "Promise" meaning during the time he is away for his military service asking that he will not be forgotten.

Kim Dong Wan said with confidence, "Shinhwa is kind of "jjang" so I don't think the fans will forget us."

The following is from news conference before Kim Dong Wan's concert.

*As you have your first concert how do you feel?
-I don't feel nervous but I feel sad as it feels like a send off. In fact, during rehearsals I got teary eyed. I was worried as I wanted to do as many appearences as I could before I leave for the army.

*What is the meaning of the title for the concert "Promise"?
-The title was chosen to keep the bond that we have in tact even while I will be away while serving in the army.

*Who will be appearing as guests?
-Kim Hyun Chul, Sweet Sorrow, Joo as well as many others will be part of the concert. I believe it will be a very solid performance overall.

*Have you gained confidence as a solo artist?
-It isn't that I have gained confidence but more like I don't get as nervous. I think it's because those who support me are constantly watching over me.

*Did you sleep well last night?
-Usually before a performance I don't sleep well but last night I slept really well.

*How are you feeling about the military service?
-It will be a valuable time. I see it as a time for me to think alone about what I would like to do in the future. Honestly, I don't feel that I am serving my country any less as a public servant (instead of in the army). For 10 years, Dong Wan didn't rest and kept going. There is a part of me that wants to rest a bit now.

*The resason that you have so many overseas fans?
-I think it was because I was part of the first wave of singers to go abroad in the Korean wave. Currently, DBSK, SS501 and others are doing a lot of promotions in Japan. Shinhwa has steadily been doing promotions over a prolong period and there is a lot of merit in that.

*What will make Kim Dong Wan's concert different from the other Shinhwa members' concerts?
-I saw in the concerts for Min Woo, Andy and Jun Jin that they were cute or had powerful dances. For me, I want to show "unplugged" stages in my concert. Instead of relying on audio devices, I would like to use just music and my voice. To show the beautiful blending of these things (to the audience).

*Within Shinhwa what is Kim Dong Wan's charm?
-I think my charm is that my image is one of a familiar older brother. Then at other times I have charms of a wild beast. ha ha ha (laughter)

*You released your second album and your concert seems a bit belated. What does this concert mean to you personally?
-Honestly, during these time when we are in a recession, it's hard to enjoy the concert. I struggled with having a concert when it's a hard time for many people suffering loss. For Dong Wan to sing for 2 hours alone, I didn't have confidence to do that in my 20's.

*What would you like to say to fans lastly?
-Please don't lose the feelings you have for Shinhwa. I don't think they will lose them. It's because Shinhwa is kind of "jjang"! (laughter)

***Just a clarification "jjang" means the best.
