[08.11.30][trans] Letters from my brother's campmate Kim Dongwan oppa...

This comes from the blog of the elder sister of Dongwan's fellow campmate

Background info

It seems that sweet and thoughtful Dongwan wrote her two letters, one on 20th Nov and one on 23rd Nov. Her brother (i.e. Dongwan's campmate) fell sick and his worried sister wrote him a letter.

Dongwan signed his name and added a line at the end of her brother's reply on 20th Nov to say that he will take care of her brother.

She was very surprised, and finally found out that Dongwan stays in the same bunk as her brother.

Three days later, Dongwan wrote her another letter. She took pictures of the letters and posted them on her Cyworld. The letters essentially talked about her brother's life in camp, and as the pictures only showed the letters partially (and Dongwan's handwriting....), I can't make out much either. But please if someone can translate the letters (what can be seen of them) in their entirety....PLEASE DO....

But I can vaguely see two interesting lines that he wrote:

Hyun Sangie~ I'll take good care of him! Nunas~ Parents please don't worry~ Fighting! -Dongwan-

Hyun Sangie has fallen asleep beside me -Dongwan-


Here's the actual text from the sister's blog entry

동생이랑 같이 입대한 신화의 김동완오빠
같은 날 입대한것도 신기했는데, 같은 소대에, 전우조라는 짝꿍까지 됐다고한다ㅋㅋ
동생이 보낸 편지 밑에 싸인이 있어서 그때도 놀랬는데..
이번엔 이렇게 나한테 편지까지 써주셨다... 'ㅇ'
내가 동생한테 보낸 편지를 보고 너무 걱정하는거 같아서
잘지낸다는걸 알려주고싶어 편지를 썼다는 말에.. 감동이 주륵주륵..ㅠㅠ
어쩜 저렇게 자상하고 착하실수가있지...
동생이 입대하던날 많은 팬들이 모여서 응원하는 이유를 알았다..
정말 인간적이고, 자상함에 반해버렸다.. 연예인이 이렇게 착해도 되는거야?? ㅠㅠ
동생이 병원에 입원했다는 말을 듣고 엄청 걱정했었는데.. 이 편지를 보고나서 마음이 놓였다.
나.. 오늘부로 김동완오빠의 영원한 팬이 되야지 ^___^
현상이랑 매일 옆에서 잠자는 동완이가 ... ☜ 이말 너무 귀여워 ㅋㅋ
오빠 사랑합니다..그리고 감사합니다♡ㅋㅋ


Shinhwa's Kim Dongwan oppa who enlisted together with my younger brother

It's amazing enough that they enlisted on the same day, and they're even in the same platoon, the last I heard they're partners too

When I saw the signature at the end of my brother's letter, I got a shock

And this time he even specially wrote me a letter...

When he read my letter to my brother and saw that I was very worried

He wanted to tell me that they're doing well, so he wrote this letter.. I'm moved...

How is it possible that he's so thoughtful and kind...

On the day my brother enlisted, there were many fans who came to send him off, and I finally understand the reason why..

He's really caring, and I've fallen deep into his thoughtfulness... Celebrities can be this kind?? ㅠㅠ

When I heard that my brother was hospitalized, I was really very worried... After reading his letter, I feel much better now

I.. From today onwards, I'll have to be Kim Dongwan oppa's fan forever ^___^

"Dongwannie who sleeps together with Hyun Sangie everyday..." This line is too cute keke

Oppa, I love you.. And thank you ♡ keke

Nov08 Cool Magazine – Concert exclusive interview – Part 1


A regret of not to met early, retrieving the feeling of the beating heart.

The sense of loss from the separation with China for an entire 8 months, in the twinkling of an eye, I was thrown beyond ‘Cloud Nine’ after hearing my own name loudly shouted by my fans. Quietly putting aside the title of “Shinhwa” temporarily in my heart, and with the identity of a ballad singer appearing in this country in which was once resisted but also welcomed, my mood has been exceptionally complex and excited? After the 3rd album is released, Hyesung’s health condition has always not been good, on the 7th other than having the meal on the plane, he has not eaten anything. Even after seeing so many of his faithful fans in the airport Hyesung is still worried and when he reached in Shanghai he started to get nervous unexpectedly and in addition, the “delicious” airplane meal isn’t very nice, so during the evening, symptoms of indigestion appears. Helplessly, the rehearsals are postponed to the next day afternoon.

On the second day, Hyesung started to prepare for rehearsal very early in the morning. Because he is still feeling unwell, therefore on the 8th that day, he didn’t eat anything until the celebration dinner. In between, there are staffs who advised for him to visit the doctor however Hyesung insists that the concert is more important. The rehearsal on the 8th is so far the most serious and tensed rehearsal we even experienced, still remembering the previous time when Cool came to the backstage of the big stage, seeing the relaxing scene of the five guys SS501 however, this time it changes completely upon seeing Hyesung. The coordination of the sound effect, lightings, sequences, and the band… Hyesung’s demanding attitude indeed “torture” each of the staffs in presence. After the rehearsal ended, Hyesung secretly told us, “Actually there’re many worries on the stage performance this time because we know that the box office isn’t ideal and during the rehearsal we realized that the stage is then so~~ big, and I started to become even more nervous so during the rehearsal, we must re-do even for a small error!” We can see how they strive for excellence for the rehearsal on that day.

Press conference isn’t that pleasant for everyone.

The afternoon rehearsal lasts for 4 hours so the scheduled press conference is delayed further. Although Hyesung who is both weak and tired and was covered with sweat, he uses his fastest speed to get change and styled, however on the other side, those reporters on spot do not know the inside story therefore there’s little misunderstandings in between. The media uses their greatest patience and courtesy to wait for an hour and finally the press conference is officially started. When Hyesung who is dressed in a simple black suit got seated, the emcee started to invite the Media to ask questions however the reporters’ area remains in silence and the atmosphere turns cold which causes one to shiver. In fact the reason is very simple and that is everyone is waiting for a sentence, the 3 words. But Hyesung who is always an introvert has a shy expression and although he feel sorry over a hundred times for the incident of being late, but he didn’t say a single word. Helplessly, we almost made this press conference become an exclusive Cool interview, which should be a sort of a relief to Hyesung.

Q In your Korea concert, you have invited many guests to help out, so did Hyesung prepare anything special for the China fans?

Hyesung: This is my first solo concert in China and as compared to the guests, I felt that the China fans are more interested to see me (laughs) therefore even though there isn’t any but everyone watch enjoyably, after all I’m the main cast.

Q: Do other Shinhwa members aware of your China concert? Before you came did they give you any suggestions?

Hyesung: They knew that I am holding concerts in Shanghai, Minwoo and Andy even called and told me, “You only need to be yourself will do, there isn’t a need to do those non- superfluous. As long as ale to show everyone the perfect Hyesung, it will sure to be interesting!”

Q: The concert this round is held in the arena, in your mind, what kind of stage do you wish to see the most?

Hyesung: In the past I have come over to China for several performances in the identity as member of Shinhwa, however this round, I held my solo concert in Shanghai for the first time. I saw that the venue for today performance is very big, and is a little worry if many fans will come after all this is my first time so now I am engaging in self comforting (laughs). Rather than saying what kind of stage I want, isn’t it more appropriate to say “what kind of stage the China fans will want to see, we will prepare the kind of stage”.

Q: In this Asia tour other than Shanghai, is there any plan for other cities of China?

Hyesung: Personally, I wish to but I can only go if everyone wants me to go (laughs). The concert in Shanghai this time is only a start, I also wants to hold the concerts in other parts of China. Although unsure where to held, but from beginning of next year, when the schedules are planned, I will try to go to more cities in China to perform.

Q: Hyesung always holds concert and fanmeeting in Japan but there’s no such event in China, however the China fans are still supporting you as usual, is there anything you want to tell them?

Hyesung: Actually the fanmeeting that is held in Japan not long ago is my first time having such event. But it’s true that I often held concerts in Japan therefore I’m petty sorry to the China fans in this area. Definitely, it isn’t that I do not want to come, in fact I really want to come but there’s no appropriate opportunity, therefore I always feel sorry to the China fans. Although I’m in Korea, I’m also clearly aware on how actively the China tans are supporting me and so I always felt very grateful. Although I only came to perform in China now, I felt bad but still happy to meet everyone. I will try to work hard to come over to China more often in the future.

Q: In Korea concert, Hyesung displayed a lot of his comedian talent. So in your future activities, will you continue to challenge against things that you have not done before?

Hyesung: Actually I heard of this questions many times, but to me, the importance in my current career is focus on music, but occasionally I will display my talents in other areas and actually to me, singing is the best. Of course, if there’s chance, I hope everyone will be able to see my other talents, I will do preparation and when the time is ripe, I will inform everyone. In conclusion, no matter what I do, I will use my best efforts to do it seriously.

Q: You challenge against rock style in your 3rd album, and everyone has different opinions on your big challenge, so how do you look at this issue? Will you produce this similar music again in the future?

Hyesung: In fact, the genre for 3rd album isn’t rock and the theme song has a little taste of classical music. Although I kept saying that it’s rock, but actually when producing the album, our goal is to produce an album that other than ballad, it will included other different types of music genres and styles therefore in this album, we included, rock, jazz, dance etc and I might not continue to do such kind of music since I am still a ballad singer. In December, I will release the other version of my 3rd album and at that time, I will continue to have activities that match with the identity as a ballad singer with more winter images. Although I’m a ballad singer, but I also wants to try other types of songs, because ballad singers is not necessarily only sing ballads. This album is a challenge to expand my influence in music and I hope that in the future I’m able to sing songs with richer feelings.

Q: Eric has already enlisted into the army, what’s your feeling on personally seeing him enlisting to the army base?

Hyesung: Because he is a very charismatic man, therefore I believe he will sure to do well. Before I came, he just completed his basic training and contacted me, telling me “Now I am training with the new person state of mind which I don’t usually see to do my training, and within the troop I even received prize money and life is petty good.” After the training ended, we can still meet up as usual therefore I’m not very worried about him because I believe he definitely can do very well (laughs).

Q: During the preparation of this Asia tour, are there any interesting things that happen in between? When you are experiencing difficulties, how do you distress?

Hyesung: This is already my 2nd solo concert that I am preparing. At the first concert, I feel tired and nervous, always worrying if I have done well and when preparing for the second, I feel more relax as compared to the first. As for stress, it’s not 100% stress free, when I’m tired I will go for rest (laughs).

Q: Many fans ask, “Do Hyesung has any plan to produce an album or participate in the production of an album together with Junjin?”

Hyesung: Why must it be Junjin?

Q: Perhaps because fans love the collaborations from both of you.

Hyesung: Ah, really? Hahaha… now we still do not have any plan to release album together but if the China fans like it, why not I get Junjin to fly her immediately today, how’s it!!(laughs) If the fans really hope for this, I will recommend this to the producer to prepare an album together with Junnie especially for China fans.

[08.11.29][trans] 081128 Hyesung concert in Nagoya (Fan Encounter)


Using a sentence to conclude Hyesung’s today concert, and that’s THE BEST!!!

Although every times he brought to us the best performances, however today I really wish to say out all the entire world praises to him to listen.
His songs really have the kind of demagogic strength.

I am deeply moved by Hyesung and now I am super excited not knowing what I am writing about.
Firstly, I felt that today the sound system is much better than the Osaka.

Last year he has also held concert in Nagoya and similar 3 floors, it is a very elegant place and the 1st floor it’s usually packed with no vacant while the 2nd and 3rd floors have many vacant. And the concert began.

Hyesung started the concert with the song “Everything” and today he sung the song, “A good day to Love” together with Sun Min. Their duet is much better today than the Osaka, their collobration is really good. Hyesung is still unable to look into Sun Min’s face, and when he looked directly to her eyes face to face, he will try to control his laughter. With difficulties he finally managed to finish this song.

In the Osaka I have this feeling and that is Hyesung seems to like Sun Min which really makes me jealous… ;; Oppa~~ you like Sun Min~~ (childish…ㅋㅋ)

Not only has he sung this song with Sun Min, when he is singing “Center” he missed a section when he suddenly burst out laughing, really curious why he suddenly laughs.

And also didn’t he always remove his cap (or the hood) when he sing “Hidden Camera” and “Urban Fever” in the past~ but today he forgot to remove his cap, he continue to sing till the end wearing the cap. And towards the end, he started to feel embarrassed.

Yes, today on the clothes changes, the opening is still the same, it’s only during the “Peter Pan’s Serenade” has some changes.

Today is green checkered shirt, and replacing the red suspenders with white, all the fans commented today clothes are more beautiful. ^^

Hyesung said that he has many memories in Nagoya (The last concert and surprise party last year…) and also said that today the atmosphere is good and that today there are many fans, 1, 2, 3 as he counts in sequences…/ (Aww~ upset ㅠㅜ) he even boost that today there’s are millions of fans…

Hyesung can feel the valuable of the fans that can come to the spot, therefore from the beginning of the performance he has already devoted all his heart and soul singing.
Today in the concert, due to his vocal, I tear unknowingly, I really crying a lot, today is the BEST.

Today the most meaningful event is to organize Hyesung’s Party.
Before singing the ending song “Because of You” the band members gradually started to play the prelude of the birthday song and all the fans said “Happy birthday~ To our beloved Shin Hyesung, Happy Birthday~” and sing the birthday song in Korean. After finishing singing, the manager, TaeHak pushes the cake out and Hyesung is very happy.

After the song ended, he thanks everyone for celebrating his 22nd birthday. Such an amazing greeting…ㅋ ㅋ and once again he said that he had many memories in Nagoya.
He even said that yesterday when he pushed open the hotel door, the staffs had also gave him a surprise birthday party and feel proud as he saidㅎㅎduring his stay in Japan these days is Hyesung’s birthday. It’s no choice to be slightly lonely but because there are many nice people around Hyesung, he seems to enjoy a great time.
It’s the first time I saw him wearing this clothes, inside is a white tee shirt and out side is a dark yellow tee shirt, it is very good looking~

Before the concert started, the Japanese fans have prepared small purple balloons that is distributed to the fans and it is because of their kind intention, it makes me wanted to leave a deeper impression of memories of Hyesung in Nagoya concerts.

[08.11.27][News]Junjin's upcoming love triangle on 'He's Coming'

Taken directly from
November 27, 2008 by coolsmurf

Remember the sitcom cameo that So Hee did earlier for MBC That Person Is Coming? Guess what, Yoo Bin will also have a cameo role where she will form a triangle relationship with JunJin and Seo Young Hee in the sitcom.

Fans are anticipating for Yoo Bin’s cameo role especially since So Hee had a successful cameo the last time round. Yoo Bin’s character will come in between JunJin’s PD character and Lee Young Hee (Seo Young Hee). And just like what Yoo Bin did to T.O.P. in last year’s SBS Gayo Daejun drama skit, stealing him from Sun Ye, she will do the same thing to JunJin, creating lots of funny moments as she launches love attacks on JunJin to get his attention.

Yoo Bin already being typecast as a 3rd party?

In the sitcom thus far, JunJin has been playing a fiery television producer who is at loggerheads with the primma donna star Lee Young Hee (Seo Young Hee) but of course they have an affection for each other. Exactly how will Yoo Bin’s cameo appearance affect their relationship remains to be seen.

Yoo Bin will film her scenes on 1st December and this will be shown towards the end of December.

[08.11.27][news] Variety success: Not "who you are", but "who you're grouped with"

The MCs of variety shows such as Infinity Challenge, Family Outing, 1 Night 2 Days, Yashimmanmman, Golden Fishery and Happy Together have been enjoying great popularity for 2008. The PDs and writers of the variety shows have commented, "Although it's important who these people are, but it's more crucial who these people are grouped with."

Since Haha left Infinity Challenge to enlist for military service, the production team had been troubled by the problem of searching for the 7th member. One staff member said, "At that time before we decided on Junjin, we spent a lot of effort on the selection process. We wanted to have a rotation of the guest members, such as other Shinhwa members and comedians like Kim Hyun Chul, Kim Shin Young, in order to find the best combination."

After several rounds of trial and error, Junjin (later known as Junstin) became the new member. But it wasn't easy to keep Junstin as a fixed member. With a reputation for having poor athletic skills and being the below-average representatives of Korea, the other IC members lagged far behind Junjin, who hailed from the idol group Shinhwa, in terms of appearance and physical prowess. Junstin seemed to stand out too much, and there were many negative comments from netizens.

Though Junstin was picked out for not being as funny as the other members on the show, soon it was apparent that by comparing the other members to the handsome and fit Junjin, that's another kind of comedic effect by itself. Eventually, this Infinity Challenge grouping worked.

Infinity Challenge = 98% inferior man + 2% perfect man

The ratings for Infinity Challenge have stayed within the top few for last year and this year, but the fans' support is also critical for the show to establish its foothold.

With the inclusion of Junjin, the new IC group has now been classified into the low-performing class and the top-performing class and this has created an interesting rivalry. Even the perfect Junjin has times of failure too, demonstrating that inferior guys are capable of defeating the perfect man too.

After gatecrashing singer/actor Lee Jihoon's home for the first episode of MBC's new variety show Let's Sleep Here Tonight, the 4-person Ajumma gang picked singer Lee Minwoo's home to gatecrash this time round.

On the show, the Shinhwa member revealed his difficult childhood days when his father's business ran into financial difficulties and even had mortgage stickers pasted all over the house.

Showing his deep love for his mother, he said, "At that time, my mother was holding me in her arms quietly, and I decided that I had to work hard on my dancing."

The new MBC reality show aims to turn the homes of celebrities into the typical neighbours' homes of the viewers, by raiding their homes, and then having an after-dinner chat that will last through the night.

Lee Minwoo's home is so neat that the 4 MCs (Lee Gyung Shil, Kim Ji Seon, Kang Su Jung and Yoo Chae Young) found it hard to believe that it belongs to a man.

On the day of the recording, Lee Minwoo's parents also turned up in a surprise visit, and were full of praise for their son, and Lee Minwoo's mother even showed off a few dance moves of her own to liven up the atmosphere even more.

From the romantic bedroom to his state-of-the-art home studio, Lee Minwoo will introduce every part of his home. Let's Sleep Here Tonight will be broadcast on 28th Nov at 11.40pm.

Andy has taken to the musical stage for the 3rd time with Singles.

"At first I was just thinking of how to go about doing musicals, but the more musicals I take part in, the more I want to excel at it."

Andy added, "During my first performance, my heart was beating especially fast, but after repeated interactions with the world of musicals, I've overcome that fear."

"Back then, I was too busy having to act and sing at the same time, but now I can see the expressions of the audience and what they're saying."

The musical version of Singles made its stage debut last year with singers Lee Hyun Woo and Son Ho Young taking on the role of Soo Hyun prior to Andy. Andy said, "The earlier performances of Singles were really great. I'm feeling the pressure now, and I'm worried about whether I can pull off the role. That's why I've done research in many areas, and I've also asked for advice from the other cast members. I hope to let everyone see my own style."

Hi everyone,

It's some time ago, our opening ceremony, I am looking foward to the arrival of that day but never expect time passes by so quickly and now it has become a past tense.

How's it? Happy?

Yesterday.. I received ceo HS's call.
He promised about implemention of five days per week working system, have you fallen for his sweet talk. ㅠ _ ㅠ
He totally forgotten to be together with Chun Sam, looking at our manager in the Cafe with shortage of manpower, I can only give a sigh of "Ho!"

The cheeks, as compared to a fox like me, it is even rounder staying put there, so?

Approaching cautiously, asking him why he's like this, and just as I expected,
He seems like unable to answer me or express to me, his mood seems a little amazing??

And then he touched Miss 'Muri' who recently make me full of jealousy.
Another person laughing here.

As if has eaten wrong thing, he looked around,
Holding onto Miss 'Muri''s ears and casually took out a skirt and ask me if I seen someone wearing a flower on the head that day, a fan with nails painted beautifully came to see him, saying that they are cute and then continued murmurring.

When to see the beautiful nails again, it won't never come back again, whether or not the opening ceremony is feeling good or bad, are questions that even someone like Chun Sam, me who is so smart cannot understand. Great! With the feeling of wanting to answer him but yet I am unsure, why not simply offer the roster and on site photo album on that day.

Without missing any word, I started reading,
Looking at the fan's photos, I laughed for a long time,
In the photos of the birthday party, the snowy world is created by using pollen, I smiled quietly.

The sun is setting down, I'm still unwilling to put the album down.

I'm not ceo HS, although I'm not able to look through his mind, but because I am born from his hands, I'm still able to read a little from his heart. ceo HS's heart is like the setting down sun, therefore I stay quietly by his side and then left the Cafe.

Rather than returning, it's always receiving, although wants to give this time but still seems like receiving even more. Have said this before, and I thought of the precious memories of that day again and smiling by myself.

Prehaps our ceo HS felt that the day is getting dark, and cannot continue reading so he walks towards the practicing room.
Because he know that singing is the best return and so he filled himself with his heart and sing.

Ah, like what Mr manager said, 'HyeSung's U Cafe' is not closing down, is only temporary shut down from the business.

Will take into account on those pros and cons everyone says,
so that the Cafe will improve for the better for re opening.
Although unsure when to re open, but hopefully that day will be like now, to meet happily with me, Chun Sam.

Very very happy during this period, very fun and also thank you everyone > _ <

During the days when I'm not around, ceo HS will be at everyone's care!!
Good bye till we reunite~!!!

[08.11.25][trans]Small (but very welcome) updates about Dongwan from training camp

Captain Kim Kyung Bok has been leaving updates about the trainees on Gongju Training Camp's internet cafe ( ). This is where the cafe also uploads pics and where people can leave messages for the trainees, which many fans have been doing for Dongwan. My computer fritzes out whenever it goes here, so I'm relying on and thanking fan sites for the updates. So far, there have been two regarding our favorite recruit (there was a lot of unfamiliar military terms, but I think this is the jist of it)...

[08.11.21] During the period of mental training, the battalion commander himself read out a letter that a Kim Dong Wan fan had left [on the café site]. The cheering sounds of “Wow!” from the fellow soldiers showed how much they liked it…(Lieutenant)

Keke...can you imagine oppa's cute, embarrassed expression?

[08.11.25] In everything, Kim Dong Wan trainee is doing it as a good example. Disregarding his celebrity, he is personally a trainee that one can learn a lot from.
*feels like a proud parent* All I can say is of course! It's because he's KIM DONG WAN!

Despite the inevitable hardships and cold, it seems it's a good environment and he's doing not just well, but excelling. 1 week down, only 3 more to go. Aja aja fighting, oppa!

[08.11.24][news] Lee Minwoo & Amy paired up again on last episode of Kkokko Tour

Kkokko Tour, the dating variety show part of KBS2's Happy Sunday, has made its final curtain call when the last episode of the Jejudo series was aired on 23 November.

The ratings for Kkokko Tour were dismally not up to expectations, and with fierce competition from SBS' Family Outing, the show had been axed from the programme lineup.

(non-related info omitted)

Recently rumoured to be romantically involved offscreen as well, M Lee Minwoo and Amy were once again paired up as a couple after the Saipan series. The two even asked, "will there be more trips like these?"

Kkokko Tour will be temporarily replaced by special episodes of Immortal Classics. The year-end special will feature Korean singing legend Patti Kim.

[08.11.24][news] Jun Jin, "Received physical training from my father during jr. high"

Jun Jin an emcee for SBS TV "YSMM - Artist Village" disclosed the unique physical training he received from his father.


"Starting from elementary school, everyday I woke up at the crack of dawn to run when I was barely awake. Similar to atheletes who would be in training," said Jun Jin. "In junior high school, my father asked me to train with a thick metal wire," revealed Jun Jin suprising many on the show.

"During that time, I wondered why I had to live such a difficult life," said Jun Jin. Charlie Park revealed the real reason for having his son focus more on physical training ever since he was young than studies displaying deep paternal love for him.

This interesting episode of "YSMM" will be broadcasted on the 24th at 11:15 in the evening.


[08.11.24][news] How do stars handle life in the army? Disciplined vs laidback?

Even stars aren't exempted from serving their duties to the country. Once they hit the age that will require them to fulfil their responsibilities, they will have to enlist to the army after the medical check. Many stars have enlisted this year, leaving their fans who can't bear to let them go. Including Gong Yoo and Chun Jung Myung who enlisted in January, and Sung Shi Kyung who enlisted in August, there are approximately 20 stars currently serving in the army now.

Fans always break down in tears every time their idols leave, and photos of them at the training camp seem to be the best way to console these fans. Recently out of all the photos that have been released, there seems to be mainly two expressions: the disciplined and rigid look as opposed to a more laidback and cheerful look.

The Disciplined Type: Completely dedicated and loyal!

Some of the photos show the stars with rigid and stern expressions, and visibly more tanned from the time spent under the sun. Even so, these pictures still bring comfort to the fans. Examples would be Shinhwa member Eric, balladeer Sung Shi Kyung and actor Gong Yoo. The first to enlist out of all the Shinhwa members, the photo shows Eric at his most disciplined, shouting together with his platoon mates, albeit looking a little pale. Vastly differnt from the smiling face that fans often see on TV, fans are saddened and say, "Army life seems to be really difficult."

Even putting flower on the hair is fine, or even wearing a flower-shaped hairpin will do, or even to bring a bouquet of flowers is okay
Wearing flower printed clothes to attend is good too, no matter what, it's flower! Only those who bring it can enter!!!

If you have my this kind of look, you can straight come in!! The look of a flower.

Those who came that day, we will have your pictures, making it as an album for CEO to collect.
Inside, those who follow the Dresscode, will receive a gift at the end, what should we give...

[08.11.20][News] Pre-enlistment KDW’s witty display of words to a young female fan

Thanks Tiff for the clip:

Singer Kim Dong wan displayed his witty speaking skills to a fan who was shedding tears over his enlistment.

On the 19th, SBS’s “TV Entertainment in the Middle of the Night” broadcasted Kim Dongwan’s handshake meeting at Samsung-dong that was held on the 10th, one week before his enlistment. Kim Dong Wan said, “There isn’t a lot of face-time with fans during fan signings, but during a handshake meeting, there can be physical contact (‘skinship’) and eye-contact,” stating the reason for holding this event. (Note: I used eye contact, which is what it means, but the literal translation is something like ‘stamp with an eye seal.' In Korea, when you sign a contract or make an agreement, instead of signing with your signature, you sign with a stamp that is unique to you and your personal information. So I guess "stamping with an eye seal" can mean that with their eye contact, they're making an agreement - in this case, between DW and his fans to not forget each other. I might be reading too much into it, but I thought that was kind of cool)

While sharing greetings and hand shakes with fans, to a young female fan who started shedding tears upon seeing him, Kim Dong wan said, “Don’t cry! If someone sees, they’re going to think I’m going for active duty,” displaying his overflowing wit while trying to offer consolation.

Kim Dong Wan said to his fans, “After four weeks, you can see me on the streets, so I hope you will not be too sad” and with a bright expression, gave his final greeting.

(Omitted information that’s already been translated about his enlistment and where he will be working afterwards)

[08.11.19][news] Lee Minwoo: Eric once gave up his own earnings to the other members

Currently promoting his 4th solo album M RIZING, Lee Minwoo revealed on a TV show that Shinhwa leader Eric once gave up his own earnings to split among the other members.

On the 20th Nov episode of cable channel tvN's Taxi, Lee Minwoo will share some interesting behind-the-scene stories of the Shinhwa members, as well as their recent activities.

Lee Minwoo said, "Eric split his earnings among the other 5 members, and the amount didn't really matter to us, it was his good intentions. When there are conflicts between the members, Eric always lives up to his role as the leader to unite everyone so that Shinhwa could continue on."

Making his comeback after 1 year and 3 months, Lee Minwoo said, "The album was made with my passion, and I produced the songs according to the ideas I had for the stage performances. I put in a lot of effort to make it even more polished."

He also shared an interesting pre-debut anecdote, he said, "Junjin's real name is Park Choong Jae, and before he came up with Junjin, he was actually called Yigigo (winner), and Kim Dongwan preferred something more foreign-sounding and artistic names like Kim Ato or Kim Atom. I shortlisted names like Parang (wave or blue) and Taeyang (sun)."

He also shared for the first time about how he was approached to go solo before Shinhwa's debut. "Just before our debut, Mr Lee Soo Man asked me if I preferred to go with a group or to go solo. By then I had already become accustomed to life with the other members, and there was just too much pressure to be a solo act instead, so I rejected the idea."

This episode will be aired on tvN on 20th Nov at 12pm.

[08.11.18][news] Lee Minwoo: We won't falter because of the trust between the members

Idol group Shinhwa, who made their debut in 1998, is different from other groups of that era. It's the only group that is still active now. While other idol groups have all disbanded, Shinhwa hasn't changed despite the change of management company and the changing environment. They have come this far because of the strong bonds of friendship that exists between the members.

Shinhwa member Lee Minwoo has achieved success as part of Shinhwa and also as a solo act, being involved in music, producing, songwriting, and even as an entrepreneur.

We revisit Shinhwa's 10-year history through an interview with him.

- Made their debut in 1998 as an idol group.

"At that time we were more commonly called dance groups than idol groups, but somehow fans started calling us an idol group. To me, it doesn't sound bad at all, and in fact it feels that the personalities of the members are even more preserved this way."

- Does the term 'idol' bring about any prejudice or predefined notions?

"There is the view that music from idols are all the same. This actually came about as a result of systems created by management companies. But on the other hand, it also created pop music for the masses. Idols can successfully break that mould, if they can create their own stage styles, or achieve success in another field through their own efforts."

- Did you work hard so that you could break free of the idol group mould and get rid of the 'idol' label?

"Since 1999 I knew that I had a passion for music, so I wanted to try my hand at making my own music. So with the 300,000 won I got from our first album, I used 100,000 won to buy music samples and equipment, and while the members were sleeping I spent that time trying to write music and work with the equipment. I got complaints from the neighbours too."

"Since I started making music, I've always wanted to design the stage myself, and I also gave it a try."

- When you released your solo albums, it seemed that it was tough to break free from the 'idol' label.

"It was, and I wanted to change that even more. It only made me want to write more songs and work harder. I once put my equipment on sale on a secondhand goods website, and the buyer asked if Lee Minwoo really wrote his own music with it. I was quite surprised."

- What is the secret behind Shinhwa being able to stay together even after such a long time?

"When we first made our debut, Shinhwa was competing with the likes of H.O.T, Sechskies and G.O.D. When we saw these groups disband one by one, we were very nervous too, so we told each other over and over again, "Don't falter". Because of the friendship and trust between us that we have accumulated over the years, we are able to come this far. Before our debut, I received an offer to go solo, but I rejected it because I didn't want to lose the members. At that time our manager always said to us, "When the coordinator brings your clothes, don't pick out your own, always help to make recommendations to each other." We often chat for a good 2 hours before going to bed too."

- How do you feel about the idol groups of today?

"I think that they have more talent than we did back then. But the most important thing is your original intentions and passion that you started out with. The advice that I want to give them is, it's crucial for the members to encourage each other, and they have to be constantly thinking of how to change in order to stay ahead of the game."

[08.11.18][news] Enlistment does not mean the end of the road for Shinhwa

"This is not the end, it's just a temporary pause. Shinhwa forever."

For 10-year-old idol group Shinhwa, Kim Dongwan has enlisted for military service on 17th Nov, about a month after Eric. After 4 weeks of basic military training, Kim Dongwan will serve as a public officer at Seodaemun-gu's administrative office.

According to a spokesperson from Eric's management company, "Shinhwa is definitely not disbanding. They will be releasing another group album in 4-5 years' time, and start on their group activities."

However, it's true that it has been increasingly rare to see all 6 members standing on the same stage. An insider familiar with Shinhwa said, "In the near future it would be hard to see all 6 members together on stage. Although it will not be an easy task to release a Shinhwa album, but it's definitely possible. But honestly it will be difficult for the Shinhwa members to release embark on group activities after 4-5 years."

He added, "After 4-5 years, the members will all be nearing their mid-30s, and even they reunite as a dance group, it will be symbolic but the scale of their activities won't be as big as before."

Currently all 6 members belong to different management companies, and just the usage of the name Shinhwa presents all kinds of problems.

After 4-5 years, if Shinhwa does make a comeback, they will first face their first problem with releasing an album. With the members enlisting for military service one after another, they will require some time to regroup, at the very least 4 years.

Shinhwa members have promised their fans that "Shinhwa will never disband. We will continue as Shinhwa forever, and the 6 of us will be together forever." They also promised that they will release a new album.

One of the members' management companies expressed, "Due to enlistment and other issues, it is in fact very difficult to see Shinhwa active as a group. When the last member finishes his military duty in 2012, although there is a possibility that the group will still be intact with all the members, there is also a chance of change. We can't say it's impossible, but regrouping does pose many problems."

Eric is currently serving as a public service officer at Seoul Metro, and with Kim Dongwan enlisting early this week, Lee Minwoo and Junjin will follow along next year.

Andy (born in 1981) will serve his duty either next year or in 2010. Shin Hyesung is exempted from military duty due to a knee injury.

From their debut in 1998 to celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, Shinhwa will go on hiatus. The members themselves have no doubt that they will regroup in 5 years' time. Being active as solo acts in music, acting and variety, the members still enjoy a high level of popularity. In an industry where stars rise and fall quickly, Shinhwa has always been viewed as the role model for idol groups.

In contract, pioneer idol group H.O.T had disbanded many years ago. While Moon Hee Jun has completed his military duty, Kangta and Tony are still in the midst of military service. There has been no talk of a group reunion since they disbanded.

With the reality of military service setting in, all eyes will be on Shinhwa and its members, who ruled an entire K-pop era, to see how they will return to their fans.

[08.11.19][news] Lee Minwoo admits he is dating Amy (added some info on Amy)

Shinhwa member Lee Min Woo has admitted that he is dating Amy and expressed, “We are now at the phase of getting to know each other.”

Speaking through his manager, Min Woo expressed, “It’s a bit early to say we are lovers now. But it’s real that we have an affection for each other and have met up quite often. We are now carefully getting to know each other better and hope that everyone can be patient for the good news to come.”

Min Woo and Amy got to know each other through KBS2TV Happy Sunday program Kko Kko Single where they were paired up as a couple on the show. But clearly, they have taken that relationship from tv into reality.

The pair had shared an underwater kiss almost immediately on their first date on the Saipan episode, with strong chemistry exhibited. Recently, the both of them were spotted dating at coffee joints in Apgujong and eating from roadside stalls. The sightings from fans led to rumors being spread fiercely online since yesterday, prompting talks of them becoming a real couple off-screen.

Amy meanwhile clarified her stand in an interview yesterday, “The rumors about me and Min Woo oppa dating, I am not sure what’s the situation right now. I will only speak once this is cleared up with oppa’s management agency.”

Min Woo is now promoting his 4th album M Rizing and will be enlisted next year in the army. Amy who was pretty much unknown until her appearance on Kko Kko Single debuted on the cable channel O’live’s Witch’s Diary 3.

[08.11.18][news] Lee Minwoo & Amy: Rumoured to be romantically involved

Singer Lee Minwoo and Amy were paired up as an onscreen couple in KBS2's Kkokko Tour, but it's rumoured that they are also romantically involved offscreen as well.

The rumours started when Lee Minwoo's fans started to say that they witnessed the two of them going on dates. According to an industry insider, Lee Minwoo and Amy got closer during the recording of Kkokko Tour, and often went on dates in areas like Apgujung.

On the show hosted by Tak Jae Hoon and Shin Jung Hwan, Lee Minwoo and Amy were first paired off during the trip to Saipan.

A spokesperson for Lee Minwoo said, "The two of them are on very good terms, but it would not be right to say that they're in a relationship. From what we know they're slowing getting to know each other better."

A spokesperson from Lee Minwoo's management company added, "After the show, they developed a close oppa-dongsaeng (brother-sister) relationship. There is a level of attraction between them, but they're not in a romantic relationship."

On the other hand, during an interview, Amy had declared, "It's true that I'm seeing Minwoo oppa now. I did think of making our relationship public, but we still won't be able to clear the air. We'll issue a public statement after discussing this further with oppa's management company."

After the rumours broke out, some of Lee Minwoo's fans had expressed their jealousy on Amy's minihompy, but there are also fans who wished them all the best.

Jung Chun Sam…

In fact, even for a fox, naming it as Chun Sam is going too far? ? ?
A café that connected PilKyo and Chun Sam…

In such a difficult time during the financial crisis, only those with ambition will survive.
Therefore I felt that naming Chun Sam or writing so much is not enough, so after a great pain of considering based on the Café name, I give myself a fake name, “U”
So everyone, please call me now, "U ~ U ah"
However, even so, the manger still continue to call me Chun Sam..

Ha ha~ ~ back to the topic
Okay~ to get ready for those who can have fun and joy to play in our café?
I will be asking some questions.

Ripple game, Ha ha! Please give another question and a phrase of hint ^^

Q1 Wanting to understand about CEO HS?
Please upload the photos of HyeSung’s privacy and matters.
I am born in October 2008 and in fact I am born into this world from the depth of CEO HS Sketch Book.
Therefore I have no understanding of the past of CEO HS.
Not sure if this is the case but to me, Shin HyeSung is a singer, there’re matters in which you may not believe.
In particular those singers which you see them appear in the television, talking actively, always talking about their own grand events and lively debate of their popularity.
Now I have to say, like this, my dress up of shorts accompany with hoodie top, where am I!!!
It’s Shin HyeSung ah
The one, who occasionally prepare for the café, the look of him humming the songs or preparing the cocktail, although to me as a fox I also, “KA AH~ Handsome”
Even so, I~~~ still unable to believe!

Searching for CEO HS photos that are related to the past.
Walking through the past, the look of him waiting for his performance’s turn, the look of him waiting at the airport and the look of him shopping and the look of him giving autograph to others and etc.
Any looks are good so please upload some looks of CEO HS that we are unaware of.

Q2: (1122and1127)
Accepting suggestions for HS birthday EVENT
27th of November is CEO HS’s birthday! PAPAPA! Congratulations ~ ~
Unfortunately, although the birthday is on the 27th of November, but as previously agreed, the opening of the Café is on the 22nd ~ ~
We do not want CEO HS to know about it, we decide to prepare a birthday party surprise for him!

Everyone! Please help!
Please give some suggestions for the birthday EVENT or birthday songs.

Q3 (dj-u)
The matter or the reason for applying the music.
Please upload the song that is suitable for 'HyeSung's U cafe or songs that you want to hear.
We will prepare those songs. ^_______^

Q4 (who's)
What’s your name, who is coming to the Café?
Those who are coming to the OPENING that day, please leave your name and seat number.

[08.11.14][trans] Don't Trust Men MV filming #4 (Street Dance & Drive)

The street dance scene & the drive scene#

We had to drive very far to a street from the location of the previous scene "Her Home"
In the wee hours of the morning before people start their day, everyone was shivering in the very cold night..
Compared to the actual filming time, more time was spent waiting
And filming started again amidst everyone's fatigue

M is M...But the dancer unnies who carried on dancing wearing very thin clothes...
They work very hard, to present the best stage performances together with M.

The drive scene was the last to be shot. The so-called rig car shot is done by rigging the moving car that the lead is driving to the camera
The wind was gusting away, and the weather was really cold, and doing several takes on the street was very difficult. M and Big Tone may be men, but they still would feel cold...

Before dawn came the filming crew kept running, and running
The space on the rig car was very narrow but many people still had to squeeze into the space
So it was very dangerous. While people were sleeping...the 17-hour long MV filming
Finally came close to the end
Ah... now it's finally over

p.s: This has been the MV filming for Don't Trust Men Bye~Bye~^^
Thank you everyone for your support for the album cover photoshoot and the MV filming
M is now preparing for his follow-up single, and will be seeing everyone very soon.
Please cheer M on! Please give M a round of applause. The staff diary will continue to come for everyone.
