Dedicated to who cried all her tears for “Rooftop Prince” ending, for who doesn’t miss an episode of “Time Slip Dr. Jin” and knows by heart every single song of “Tarantallegra”. Don’t know what we’re talking about? It’s time to find out!
TITLE: The Three Musketeers of KPOP
An announced success:
Not everyone knows that, before being a trio, these three boys that form the Korean band JYJ (Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu) were part, together with Yunho and Changmin, of TVXQ – a very loved Korean band composed of five members, also known as DBSK, acronym for Dong Bang Shin Ki, “The Rising Gods of the East” – , from which they split after leaving their entertainment agency, SM Entertainment, with whom connections are now really tense. JYJ officially begin their activities in the April of 2010 and achieve immediately a great success, also thanks to their fans’ support, who keep on following them despite the sudden change, supporting them more than ever during the many hard moments of their new career. With album as “The Beginning” and “In Heaven”, JYJ manage to convince even the most sceptic ones about their talent and their potential, freeing themselves of the image built through the years passed with TVXQ and highlighting the distinctive characters of every member of the band, through the numerous individual activities pursued parallely.
The power of the Trio:
Between 2011 and 2012, JYJ get involved in thousand of projects, working as testimonial and composers . Thanks to their unquestionable charm, added to their “boys next door” appearance, Yoochun, Junsu and Jaejoong are continuously contended by any kind of brand: clothing, hi-tech, medical, restaurants etc. There’s nothing these three boys can’t achieve successfully and there’s no adventure they don’t want to experience, made strong also thanks to the great bond that keeps them together and that brought them where they are today, but it’s during the fall of 2011 that JYJ accept the greatest challenge: an European tour. Between October and November , the boys perform in cities as Barcelona and Berlin, where kpop music isn’t yet as popular as it is in Asia and USA, but it’s where our boys prove their worth, attracting a great number of fans and the attention of the local and international press that sees in their unexpected success a way to new possibilities for the other Korean artists too.
We’re waiting for an Italian date and who knows, 2012 could be the right year before they leave for their obligatory military service!
After that, the magazine gives out their FB url and YT channel for info ;D
On the side of Junsu photo, pg 2, it’s written:
PASSIONS: Among the numerous passions of Junsu, one of the most important ones, aside the one for music, it’s without a doubt the game of soccer! A hobby that made him captain of the FCMEN, the soccer team formed by Korean entertainers, with whom he plays in charity matches, showing his charisma as a leader aside from his unquestionable athletic presence.
Under the JYJ photo in the recording studio, pg 2, it’s written:
Socially involved: JYJ are really socially involved. During the years they attended numerous charity events and they’re very well known for the conspicuous donations to the Japanese earthquake victims and to the Thai flood victims in 2011. Their fans are well known for this too, attracting attention for donating often great quantity of rice to help the less fortunate ones on behalf of Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun. If this isn’t love!
