Here’s the report on the making of the Lotte Duty Free ad. =)

100722 TVXQ Spring/Summer Advertisement Shooting Scene Report

On 6 April 2010, at a studio in Kangnam, Seoul, TVXQ’s trio Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun did the photoshoot for the Lotte Duty Free Store’s Spring/Summer advertisements.

The shoot started at 9.30pm. The shoot started this late for the Lotte Duty Free Shop commercial because there were two shoots that day. Song Seung Hun did his shoot in the afternoon, so the three did their shoot at night.

The trio listening to the explanation from the cameraman before the shoot.

The three friends, posing!

This pose has the meaning of “Keeping an open mind”


Chic fashion being worn by the trio.


A situation in the shoot that uses a table.


A pose that uses their reflections. All 3 have serious expressions


A pose with a picture frame, and they can’t help being playful.


This pose of them pulling suitcases was created based on the concept of a “moving walkway.”

Firstly, the video was shot for “Star Avenue” at Seoul’s Lotte Town. Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun’s theme was dance. They definitely hit a good theme for the three, at the shoot, you could see the three of them do their special dance.


The trio holding balloons of various sizes. It’s like a fairy tale.


The three are cutting the ribbon


Posing in a salon setting


A large chair was added, and the three posed around it.

After the shooting of the video, there were still photographs to be shot in the same outfits. There was the ribbon cutting pose, autograph signing pose, eye-covering pose and also the table pose. Today’s still shots were done with a great variety of concepts.

Then, around 3.30 am, everything was completed! The three did the shoot without showing any unhappiness at all, and were truly professionals. We are looking forward to seeing the fall/winter shoot!

100722 Elle girl – Changmin’s Ultimate Decision Part 1

Changmin will be appearing in the August edition of the ‘Ultimate Decision’ game. From this week onwards, 4 weekly issues will be released and the game will revolve around Changmin’s every day life and his personality. Look out for part 2 on July 29th (Friday)!

Question 1
At which pace of life do you feel the most content, when you have a lot of time or when you’re super busy?

Answer:
When I’m super busy
‘Right now, I’m kind of in between the two, and it’s not that I have a problem with it, but I’d like to be more busy.’

Question 2
Which type are you, are you afraid of the cold or afraid of the heat?

Answer:
Afraid of the heat
‘I like winter a lot more compared to summer, so I guess I’m the type who’s afraid of the heat. Even if I get sick because of the cold, I still like winter more.’
Despite being irritated by the hot weather, Changmin was mindful of the air-conditioning settings due to the dehydrating effects it might have on his voice and skin. This is true professionalism!

Question 3
Which do you like more, morning or evening?

Answer:
Evening
‘No matter how you put it, I’m never in good shape in the morning. It was like this last night, I spent the whole night doing a magazine photoshoot but I still felt really awake and energetic afterwards.’ Changmin said that whenever he has trouble sleeping, he watches TV or listens to music. Recently, he’s been following news on Keri Hilson, who is visiting Japan to attend activities for ‘Summer Sonic’

Question 4
When you leave home in the morning, do you waste a lot of time getting ready or are you able to leave quickly?

Answer:
Usually I spent 40 minutes to an hour getting ready in the morning. I shower, then I pick out my clothes… Oh and you CANNOT miss breakfast!’ This was what Changmin, who never misses breakfast, said. What’s more startling is that he always eats a whole bowl of rice in the morning! Achieving that with only 2 men in the house, it’s just completely amazing!

This is a very short one. I can’t wait for the other parts!

‘Right now, I’m kind of in between the two, and it’s not that I have a problem with it, but I’d like to be more busy.’

In short, you miss working with the other members. You miss TVXQ. :)

Oh and you CANNOT miss breakfast!’ This was what Changmin, who never misses breakfast, said. What’s more startling is that he always eats a whole bowl of rice in the morning! Achieving that with only 2 men in the house, it’s just completely amazing!

As expected, Changmin gives so much importance to food. LOL. Maybe he’s now eating the other three members’ share in the food. ;P

Here are some pics from the making of the Lotte Duty Free Ad of JaeChunSu. =)
