HoMin - Marie Claire Part 2

Why was JYJ excluded from “Inkigayo’s Take 7″

Netizens have been very vocal in their requests for the appearance of JYJ on public broadcast programs.

Requests have consistently been made since the trio released their first album, “The Beginning“, this past October, and they’ve become even louder afterKBS revealed that JYJ will perform in their year-end 2010 KBS Drama Awards ceremony on December 31st.

Moments after KBS revealed the announcement, the homepage board forSBS’s “Inkigayo” was bombarded with over 230 posts requesting the trio’s appearance. “JYJ is said to be appearing at KBS’s ‘Acting Awards.’ Isn’t it about time that SBS opened its doors too?“, wrote one fan.

There is no real reason as to why JYJ cannot appear on public broadcast programs, leading many to question the standards of certain shows.

Netizens expressed their concern by leaving comments such as, “Their song is good, their album sales are good, why are we not able to see them on public broadcasts?,” and “I hope that they are able to appear. Many viewers are wanting this, please reflect our opinions.”

They only became more agitated after JYJ’s “Ayy Girl” mysteriously disappeared from Inkigayo’s “Take 7″ on December 15th.

It’s heavily speculated that official letters from the KFPCAI (which requested the restriction of JYJ appearances on public broadcast programs) were the reason behind JYJ’s exclusion from the chart.

Unfortunately, the situation remains at a standstill, as “Inkigayo” remains silent on the issue, despite the growing outcry from fans and netizens alike.

[TRANS] 101217 TVXQ Official site- Message from Changmin

Hello everybody! I'm Choikang Changmin ^^

I went to watch the musical Trax's Young Duk hyung is taking part in - 'The Three Musketeers'.

Despite hearing of Jay hyung's extremely busy schedule what with filming his drama and participating in activities with SM The Ballad, I thought he looked extremely handsome, sang amazingly and had an outstanding performance today in the musical.

There were also many other talented musical actors who took the show very seriously and I found myself completely drawn into the musical.

Although the whole 'good always triumphs over evil' theme was really obvious, it was heartwarming to watch as truth and reason prevailed once again…

Even though I've been so busy recently that I'm really quite drained, seeing Jay hyung's wonderful stage and his charismatic acting today made me even more eager to take my place on stage again as soon as possible.

Jay hyung has been showing off good sides of himself in so many aspects lately and for some unknown reason, it's really excited me ^^ Hahaha

In the near future, I'll be stepping on stage once again. In order to show you all a charming image of myself, I seriously ought to prepare ^^

Please look forward to Dong Bang Shin Ki's return.

The reason I've been so busy recently is to show you all a better side of myself.
Also, I hope you'll support our Jay hyung~
Since he's so handsome, I realy want to become a fan of his.

In everything you do, fighting!!~

Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin are Dating ? who knows?

Actors Song Hye Kyo (27) and Hyun Bin (26) have broken hearts around the world with confirmation that they are currently in a relationship.

According to the media, Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin grew close through working together as a couple on the 2008 KBS drama, Worlds Within. The two also represented Amore-Pacific’s Aritaum brand together. However, they didn’t begin dating until June, following Hyun Bin’s stay in Busan to film Friend, Our Legacy. It was supposedly a case of “distance makes the heart grow fonder” as they were separated during his filming. During that time, the two friends developed greater feelings for each other.

Hyun Bin’s agency stated on the morning of August 5, “Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin were good friends and became lovers two months ago.” Song Hye Kyo’s agency also confirmed the news. Sources said the two usually go on dates at cafes in Chungdam-dong or Apgujeong-dong, in a car, or with a group of friends.

When asked about his ideal woman in a recent interview, Hyun Bin answered that she should have good sense (in knowing how to act in different situations) and be feminine yet eat well. One can assume that Song Hye Kyo fits this description? Hyun Bin will likely not discuss his relationship with the media as he adamantly told Star News on July 28, “I don’t want to reveal my private life. Whether it’s my house, parents, or girlfriend.”

In contrast to when Hyun Bin was rumoured to be dating Hwang Ji Hyun and fans verbally abused Hwang, netizens are greeting this news with compliments and congratulatory comments toward Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo. Song was previously linked to drama co-stars Lee Byung Hun (confirmed) and Bi (rumoured).

While Jeon Ji Hyun’s agency stated, “We do not know our actor/actress’s personal life. We will reveal our stance after confirming whether it’s true or not.
The rumors stemmed from pictures published by paparazzi news agency, Sports Seoul this morning and claiming it as a world exclusive. But the pictures aren’t really conclusive if you get what I mean, since they don’t really tell us anything.

According to the reporter who filed the exclusive story, the ring – bracelet is a couple set from Cartier. In addition, the reporter states that Rain has been spotted visiting Jeon Ji Hyun’s apartment late at night often for about a year, the most recent being just before he flew to America for the MTV Movie Awards
Furthermore, on June 9th’s episode of MBC Golden Fishery’s Radio Star, the guest star was none other than Rain. During the show, he stated, “I am currently not dating anyone. … If I am caught [dating], I will reveal that I am dating.
