On Tuesday (3/27), the spouses are invited to Cheong Wa Dae for more performances and a luncheon. First Lady Kim, a strong advocate of the globalization of hansik, or Korean cuisine, will host a luncheon at Sangchunjae, meaning a house used in spring. Sangchujae, built in 1983 to serve VIP guests, is the only traditional-style building at the Blue House complex. At the luncheon, the spouses will sample Korean traditional cuisine including kimchijeon, or kimchi pancake, japchae, or noodles stir fried in sesame oil with a variety of vegetables, and royal dishes
After the luncheon, the group will attend a mini concert at Yeongbingwan, the state guest house. In a performance titled “Queen’s Morning,” Kim Joo-won, a prima ballerina with the National Ballet of Korea, will reenact a Joseon queen preparing for her wedding day. Kim will portray a bride’s anxieties and joy on her wedding day, as well as her determination to become the queen of the country by wearing 16 layers of hanbok, traditional Korean costume, with the support of her ladies-in-waiting.
Following the ballet performance, Korean Wave stars will hit the stage. Three-member boy group JYJ and ballad singer Seong Si-kyung will sing two songs each. JYJ, who also serve as PR ambassadors for the Nuclear Security Summit, will sing hits including “Be My Girl,” while Seong, nicknamed the ballad prince, will sing his latest single “First Time.”

Can’t wait to hear uri JYJ’s news again ^____^
I can’t wait to see our boys!!! 😀
I’m pretty sure First Lady is a JYJ fangirl. How else to explain the invite? 😉 @beyondmonica, fancam please? For the rest of us who don’t hv presidents for husbands 🙂
“How else to explain the invite?”
Well, this is the Nuclear Security Summit and JYJ are the PR ambassadors for it? 😀 But of cours that doesn’t mean the First Lady can’t be their fan. She and his husband met with Jaejoong in Turkey and he could very well charm her. 😀
You’re right, I forgot about that in my excitement. 😦 Becos’ she would probably be the one deciding on the spouses’ program, I was thinking she might like them and want to introduce them to the guests. Also, since this is the 2nd time they are involved with the Blue House, I wondered if the hubby who might not know much about kpop asked his wife for advice on who to bring along to Turkey…???
Anyway, it’s all good. We’re happy together. 🙂
” @beyondmonica, fancam please? For the rest of us who don’t hv presidents for husbands ”
Darn@! And now I’m just kicking myself for that – how remarkably short-sighted of us all!
Daebak! Blue House, whoah *__*
I’m proud of JYJ, everything they do always a big shot! Wohoo~
I hope there will be at least fancam when JYJ hit the stage!
so does this mean only the first ladies will hear them sing? how about the heads of state, do they get to listen to them too?
So proud of JYJ ^________________^ Dae to the Bak!! 화이팅!!
like usual the song that our boys gonna sing for event like this are ‘be my girl’ and ’empty’/’in heaven’/ ‘get out’. can’t wait for more news about uri JYJ
@beyondmonica please give us some fancam or glimpse about uri JYJ during that event later 😀
lol….we’ll unlike when they were in dbsk, they don’t have a huge massive pool of songs to choose from. besides they want to choose the best songs to captivate the audience (meaning those whom may not be fans or not too familiar with their music). trust me its not as bad as some groups who perform the same song for 3 years (i’m not gonna name names tho).
kekekeke…i’m not complain at all because those song really suit for event like these, their harmonization truly can captivate the audience (fans or not fans)
Who need music bank when you got blue house
Dae to the bak!!!!!!!!!
Joongie, miss you sooooooooooooooo much
And beyondmonica please give mercy and take fancam for us
Please pretty please with cherry on top
JYJ = Best of Korea
Objectively speaking, there is NO OTHER boyband who can perform at their level, are multi-talented, n hv e whole package – and this is true of each n every member in e grp. JYJ hv 150,000 hrs of experience (my estimate), thus the perfection that we r seeing today.
DBSK was SM’s dream team, n these 3 men were the best from that team. So SM has ALREADY lost, big time.
SM = BIG FAT LOSER!!!
I suddenly feel very cheerful. 🙂
“I suddenly feel very cheerful.” 🙂
“DBSK was SM’s dream team,n these 3 men were the best from that team.”
love your above statement.
Exactly. SM destroyed its own dream “the rising god of the east”, but neverthless these boys came to be great artists and true pro, they are indeed probably the greatest, and you can see all their professionalism, passion and talent in their performances. I still think that DBSK could rule the world once, too bad they split up, now is JYJ turn.
This is a treatment deserving for royal princes..like a Japanese Prince, a Jeseon Prince, and a European (German-Austrian) prince. That’s how you treat royalties. I am so proud of our princes.
uri Jae —————> Japanese prince..
uri Park Yo———> Joseon prince
uri XiahTod—————> European (German-Austrian) prince
proud of the boys
uri princes are awesome, aren’t they? this noona here is crazy about them.
Who can sing Live for over two hours on end?….I know, I know….JYJ.
Who can sing in English, Japanese, and Korean beautifully?….. JYJ.
Who is cute, charming, handsome, humble, SMART, kind, lovely?…JYJ.
Who can stand proudly on any stage of the world?…Ke, ke, ke…of course JYJ.
JYJ jjang imnida!
Good Monday morning!!!
You got that right …who else can do all those things…of course non other our JYJ..
i add more
who is dork and can bring laugh in the stage but in the same time can captivate their audience ?…….JYJ
Jae=Japanese Prince?? lololol hahahh! All the first ladies will surely fall for JYJ! haha!!
oh, Please dont forget when they came to Peru, they were treated like princes
that is how they felt when they came out from the balcony to greet his fans 🙂
LOL, … we never forgot JYJ as Prince in Chile, Peru, and all of the Americas.
also Jaejoong as Prince of Turkey, Yoochun as the Prince of the UK (I’m sure the Queen Elisabeth’s love this romantic boy, as you know ahjuma and aunty fell in love with him, ….) Don’t forget Junsu as Prince of Africa, cuz he loves wild adventure …. bwahahaaa!!
“Junsu as Prince of Africa, cuz he loves wild adventure”
LOLOLOLOLOL… u cracked me up
two more days …. please some fans came ^___^
LOL..what iam typing?? still sleeping?? “some fancams’ ..I miss the boys!
Ohmigod, singing be my girl in front of first lady? Yaa, it’ll be daebak! ^^ *watching junsu’s noves
Of course, JYJ will be the best pop group to be selected to sing in front of these VIPs. I cannot imagine SoMeone’s artistes singing “Keep Your Head Down”, “Mr Stupid” or “Run Devil Run” to these ladies or their spouses. LOL.
Lol, couldn’t help but laugh at your comment. Is “Mr.Stupid” by any chance “Mr. Simple?” If so, that’s the most annoying song in the history of songs (yes, it annoyed me more than “Baby” by Justin Bieber)!!
I can’t stop laughing when reading your comment
It’s definitely right ! How can 1st lady and leaders listen ke:P your head down’ run devil’ at the event like that??? if they hear those songs, they could become ‘mr. St:Pid’ or ‘mr. Si:Ple’ kekeke :(-
Oh the last song I can’t stend it. aaaah my poor ears why, now I have that song in my head… need some purification *listen randomly to a JYJ song, because unlike SoMeone you can pick any JYJ song at random and it will still be a good song*
LOL, good point. 🙂 Those first ladies don’t need to hear that kind of kpop that passes for music. They need JYJpop!
can we expect fancam from one of the First Ladies? ;))
yeah right, who needs things like music bank or music whatsoever when you got the blue house? that’s just incredible!
I think in heaven or chajatta will be a good song choice for first ladies. Be my girl (O.o) hehehe … Anyway, all the first ladies will be happy to listen the song that they understand from that whole day performance.
Way to go my beloveds. A proud fan here!
I thought the same Be my Girl … in heaven, chajatta, Fallen leaves (or a new one 😉 ) are good choice for those vip guests
i’m like a 100% sure they’re going to sing the regular version. I think they might want to sing an english song too and something that fits the setting, ergo be my girl
Be My Girl….. hmmmm. Well maybe the Firal Lady saw THIS on YouTube and decided she wanted to see it UP CLOSE for herself….
sorry….typo ….. it should be FIRST LADY
where did you get this?? O.O Wow whee, from this angle and up close, he doesn’t look so skinny anymore! He looks…you know what I’m gonna say, haha…fill in the blank with your choicest adjectives. 🙂
anyway, I know it’s not gonna happen but imagine if they turn up in these red hot outfits (complete with Jae’s ‘tent’, Su’s butt and Chun’s shoulders). I bet the first ladies will have a hard time maintaining their decorum! They might even shift in their seats, bite their nails to stop themselves from squealing, and stare transfixed with the silliest grins…hehe…
LOL…..when I saw “Be my girl”, i think of that video…^^
I like your thoughts @A Friend 😀 I would have also liked to have caught this up close *o*
Found the link in one of the Junsu only sites.
But NO they cannot show up in those red outfits… Those poor Ajummas with go into cardiac arrest or their husbands will have to get prescriptions for Viagra the following evening. LOL
I really want them to sing In Heaven. But who knows. I’m really beginning to wander if the First Lady requested this song?Because thank about it …really at an event like this… one would think they would want something a little “tame” 🙂
Maybe First Lady thought to herself….”I will never have a chance given who I am to go to a live concert for these three sexy, gorgeous young men. I better take this opportunity NOW!”
@Barb D. Bolten and @intox
I love this fancam! Su is having so much fun. @0.32 his “inner child” came out when he catches the girls focusing on him… he moves in toward the camera and gives a big shout and jump! They went wild after he did this! I also love his vocal adlibs in this concert. Listen to his Ohhhh @0.53… CHILE Fangirls were simply AWESOME! Every fancam I see of the Chile concert gives me goosebumps. The heated Frenzy! Soo jealous …man I wish I could have been there!
“prescriptions for Viagra”
LOLOL..that’s so wicked , girl!! 🙂 n good thinking abt e first lady’s inability to attend a JYJ concert. She can hv them all to herself in e comfort of her own home. Heck, I would do e same if I were her, hehe. I thot it was so sweet of Su to notice the girls recording him ..that’s dorky dolphin’s fanservice for u..whoop n high kick *rolls eyes *
Now I understand why this concert is for the first ladies only. What would the presidents think if they knew what kind of ‘innocent entertainment’ their wives had while they were busy with nuclear issues. They would not approve, LOL..
aish, the first lady from my country will attend too, its quite noisy in my timeline about how we jealous towards her XD
haha…for the first time in our lives, we’re envious of first ladies 🙂 all becos’ of JYJ. Well, it’s not all that strange. JYJ fangirls have been known to be jealous of a lot of random objects – e.g. chair, pillow, bed, Tio bottle, mike, etc. etc. 🙂
hahaha you right …LOL now to First Ladies turn…^_____^
so proud to be a JYJ fan!
in your face LOSERS!!
i read somewhere that VP Binay & wife are going to represent RP.
PLEASE VOTE THIS FOR JJ~ NOW ONLY 5TH >>>>> http://123fans.cn/jinzaizhong#ok
Another news report~
Thank you sis ^__^
JYJ FIGHTING!!!! ^^ After this it’s time for a second world tour.. if i am the president i will invite you every year ^^
This is wonderful for, JYJ!” BUT, oh how I wish they were referred to as “the three-member group, JYJ or even trio-group, JYJ” instead of “Boy Band, JYJ!” It makes them sound like they are in their teens and they soooo beyond that.
I heart this sentiment. 😉 But I think we’re in the minority. 🙂
Sadly, you are right! And I SO need an edit button! I had trouble with my comment partially disappearing (darn wordpress) and didn’t pay attention when I rewrote the missing parts. Definitely a typing and editing fail on my part!
Yes, WP is definitely having some issues. I’ve been trying this trick. Expand the comment section BEFORE you start writing. The box grows as you move the cursor down. The line under the box jumps up in mine when I get to a certain point, covers what I’m writing and I can’t tell if it’s correct or not. I’ve found out it is possible to make it jump back below, by moving the cursor over it. But I’m leaning more to the expand option. That way, it I need more space I don’t have to wonder where everything is.
I think for an edit button, the admins have to go through some software configurations. I checked it out in prep for my on personal blog I’m planning on doing for my family research. It looked somewhat extensive. Not sure if they want to go that far. I’m ready to beg for our article reply count and comment time to be reinstituted. I soooooooooo miss them!
Thank you!! I’ve been having the same problem with it jumping around!
Oh well, I think I’d rather have the comment time re-instituted as well. I do really like the “replies” number listed by my name at the top of the post. Very handy indeed.
It’s driving me nuts too. The bouncing editing box is maddening. Fortunately as long as I use the Google Chrome browser, misspellings are underlined in red. (I average about 4 of those per sentence. I type faster than I know how to type. lol) I guess I can live with everything else, except I sure would like to have the time of the post displayed again. I miss that….
Lol, although I will say my typing skills have increased exponentially these last 6 yrs. since I’ve been using IM chats. Maybe I should clarify, speed or accuracy! 😉
It makes me feel good knowing I’m not going through this alone. I was beginning to feel paranoid. 🙂 Ah, one of life’s challenges — WP.
Ah, shared paranoia. 😀 Not so lonely after all…
So proud of our JYJ boys !
They are really the best in my heart !
It’s can’t be changed forever ………. full of my love to them ^^
I love JYJ
So this is why President Obama is going to South Korea! Cool!
PLEASE VOTE THIS FOR JAEJOONG~ NOW ONLY 5TH >>>>> http://123fans.cn/jinzaizhong#ok JAEHAREM FIGHTING!!!!!
I wonder if JYJ will get to meet Mrs. Obama. I know this is for the wives of the attendees; so maybe there will be some feedback from Mrs. Obama 😀 I was thinking the First Lady of Korea might also be a fan of musicals or dramas! JYJ are exciting to watch whatever genre they perform in.
I’m not sure Mrs. Obama came with President Obama. The film clip I saw of him coming from Air Force One, he came out by himself. Usually, if she’s with him, she debarks with him. The girls are in school, that might be another reason as well. But hey, the president loves good music, he may just sneak in. 🙂
Our president is attending the summit too, and it’s the whole day that I’m wondering about his wife…
HEY HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THIS!
University of Michigan Symposium on Hallyu 2.0: Korean Wave in the Age of Social Media. JYJ fandom is a topic.
The title of the Seminar is: OF THE FANS, BY THE FANS, FOR THE FANS – THE REPUBLIC OF JYJ.
woah, Your quote is like Politician, Of citizens, by citizens, for citizens
Yes!!!!, we are citizens of the Republic of JYJ
JYJ is Highclasse Celebrity ( i bet their highprice #1 in Korea), that’s why all their CD/DVD/Ticket concert/adv/drama/movie/OST/clothes so much damn EXPENSIVE!!!!
I’m proud of JYJ .
Hahahahaha… I can’t imagine if the First Ladies spazz the entire performance… XD When I heard “Be My Girl”, the first image that went to my head is Junsu’s duckbutt~ LOL
Later when the First Ladies are having their gossip time, it will be this way:
FL 1 : OMG! I have to try hard not to drool for my image! That blondie’s butt is a bomb!
FL 2 : You’re right!!! Oh my God! The man with the wide forehead is seriously hotter than my husbie!
FL 3 : Of course, he is! Owww, the one in the middle’s strong arms is making me crazy!
FL 4 : WE NEED TO SEE THEM AGAIN, OMG! LET’S BE THEIR OFFICIAL FANS! We need to use our husband’s power to destroy the SoMeone’s carrier and let them go to televisions!
*sorry about my spazz and day-dreaming time XD*
yeah,…i can imagine that, LOLOL!!!
yes, Su’s hip thrusts are synonymous with Be My Girl.
I like the word you used…’blondie’ 🙂
ballet and JYJ together I LOVE THIS! my two fav things in the world~~~
