[TRANS] Due to work, I came to Seoul. JYJ’s Jaejoong solo concert the other day was the best. I was lost in the charm of rocker Jaejoong♪
[TRANS] After participating in JYJ’s Jaejoong concert, once again, I am convinced that he was heavily influenced by Japan’s rock band like Laruku (L’Arc~en~Ciel) and B’z. Songs that he sang in Japanese were also really wonderful ♪

The drama will focus on a president who disappears after shots are fired. Yoochun plays Han Tae Kyung, one of the president’s elite bodyguards.
According to his agency C-JeS Entertainment, Yoochun was attracted to the drama because of its well-crafted script and the possibility to work with the drama’s writer and director. Kim Eun Hee, who wrote the CSI-style forensics drama “Sign” and the hacker thriller “Phantom,” wrote the script for “Three Days.” The director, Shin Kyung Soo, who worked on “Deeply Rooted Tree” was also a draw.

Truthfully speaking, this is the most tiring period for me, and many around me were worried about me releasing a full-length album. But the decision to release the album was taken after long deliberation, and I am really happy that so many fans love the album. This has given me a great deal of satisfaction and achievement.”
