OMG, poor JaeJoong! He must be so sad and depressed right now since Park Yong Ha is one of his closest friends. I can still remember that he’s the other person, apart from BoA , who JaeJoong texted during their Come To Play guesting. It must be so hard for JaeJoong to accept this news most especially since he can’t come to see his friend for one last time. :'(

Why does it have to happen now when everything is complicated and JaeJoong (and the other members) are under so much stress because of all the issues revolving around their conflict with SM Entertainment. The death of one of his close friends will only add up to the burden and depression that JaeJoong is feeling right now. I just hope he’s going to be ok. The members, especially JaeJoong, needs our love and support now more than before. I just want to go to wherever he is and give him a big and tight hug. :(

Park Yong-ha’s ‘Best Friend’ Jaejoong Burst in Tears

TVXQ Member Hero Jaejoong shed tears to hear the sad news about Park Yong-ha.

Hero Jaejoong who is currently in the midst of recording in United States on the 30th has to hear the suicide news of his close friend Park Yong-ha and devoted himself in tears. Jaejoong said, “I really want to visit the room where Park Yong-ha coffin is placed now, what should I do. How could this happen to him.” he stopped as he’s burst in tears. “Yesterday (the 29th) we’re talking on the phone. We’re supposed to meet when I return to South Korea…”

A representative of Jaejoong said, “The relationship between Park Yong-ha and Jaejoong was more than just a close relationship. They tell each other everything. When Jaejoong heard about this sad news in America, he’s totally clueless and was bitter to know nothing about the incidence. The most heartbreaking thing is that he will have to stay in United States and won’t be able to at least visit Park Yong-ha coffin.”

Since Jaejoong and Park Yong-ha both pursue activities in Japan, they have established a close relationship. Staying in a foreign country, they started to share thoughts and opinions which then built close friendship between them for years.

Even though JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu won’t be able to go to Park Yong Ha’s wake, they sent their condolences by sending flowers to his funeral.

This is definitely a sad news for the Korean entertainment industry. My condolences to Park Yong Ha’s family and friends.

It’s a tragedy to lose such a talented actor so early in his life; our condolences go out to Park Yong Ha’s family. His funeral procession will take place on July 2nd.

A lot of celebrities are mourning over his death but our boys are probably part of the those who are terribly shocked and hurt because of his death since he is pretty close to the members, especially to JaeJoong.

Shortly after the unfortunate news of Park Yong Ha’s death went public, many celebrity figures have begun to express their condolences. Quite many have already paid a visit to the hospital where the man now rests in peace, but it seems like the loss is just too shocking for anyone to handle easily.

TVXQ’s Jaejoong was one of the first ones to hear of Park Yong Ha’s death, as he’s been a good friend of the actor for a long time. With both being popular in Japan, the two often shared advices on their international activities.

Jaejoong revealed in disbelief, “Park Yong Ha and I even had a phone call yesterday, so I really can’t believe he died. His voice sounded very bright, and I couldn’t feel any difference from other usual days. We ended the call by promising to have a drink of soju once I return to Korea after recording. It’s very shocking.”

I think there’s a mistake in the article. The boys are not demanding for a 30 billion won compensation. As of now, they’re only asking for a total amount of 3 billion won for compensation.

The lyrics of the song below were written by Ryoji Sonoda especially for TVXQ and their fans. :)

100630 Ryoji Sonoda’s Blog  – Thankful Words Lyrics Dedicated To Tohoshinki, Cassiopeia & BigEast

Love Song (Written By Ryoji Sonoda)
(T/N: Original lyrics below)

The distant memories
Taken from the heart
Continue with your dreams
Let’s add to their colors

Nobody knows yet,
How bright the future is

It seems like it’s sparkling
Try to trust me.

It blooms sweetly
With beautiful grace,
The soul connects so that
it protects you eternally

This pure heart
So that I do not hurt it,
Where it leads me to is,
a gentle smiling face.

We see the same sky,
We pass the same seasons
In the miracle of a meeting,
You are being loved.

It blooms spectacularly,
To release your loneliness
So that you will not be separated,
because you are held tight.

It blooms sweetly
With beautiful grace,
The soul connects so that
it protects you eternally

愛の歌
作詞:RYOJI SONODA

遥か彼方の思い出を
心から取り出し
あなたと夢の続き
彩(いろど)り添えましょう

誰もまだ知らない
未来にどんな光
煌めいてゆくだろう
僕に ほら 委(ゆだ)ねてごらん

密やかに咲き誇れ
美しく淑(しと)やかに
魂繋ぎあうように
あなたを永遠(とわ)に守ろう

純粋なこの心
穢(けが)れてしまわぬように
導いてくれたのは
優しい笑顔でした

同じ空見上げて
同じ季節越えて
出逢えた奇蹟の中
あなたを愛しています

華やかに咲き誇れ
孤独を解き放つように
はぐれてしまわないように
強く抱きしめるから

密やかに咲き誇れ
美しく淑(しと)やかに
魂繋ぎあうように
あなたを永遠(とわ)に守ろう

Here comes teacher Yunho again. But this time, instead of Korean words, he taught the fans the Korean cheer. LOL. :)

100629 U-Know Yunho Gets Japanese Fans To Clap To “Dae~HanMinGuk”

U-Know Yunho, who traveled to Japan to promote his drama, is getting a delayed positive response from netizens for teaching his Japanese fans the special cheer and claps used to cheer for the Korean national soccer team.

According to a Youtube video uploaded by a Japanese news agency, U-Know Yunho visited Japan to commemorate the DVD release of his first drama ‘Heading to the Ground’. 5000 people attended the event.

In the drama, he played the role of a soccer player. Therefore, the subject of the questions being asked smoothly transitioned from soccer to the World Cup. U-Know Yunho was excited that both Korea and Japan had entered the top 16 and said, “Asia is strong.”

Following this, the MC asked him, “Do you cheer (for the national soccer team) at home?” U-Know Yunho replied, “I dance or sing ‘O Pilseung Korea’.” He also said that he shouts “‘Clap-Clap~Clap-Clap-Clap’ DaeHanMinGuk.”

As if they had been waiting for such an answer, the Japanese fans clapped five times to the beat and cheered. U-Know Yunho said, “That was amazing,” and praised the Japanese fans for following the Korean cheer so well.

Korean netizens who saw the video stated, “It’s cute to see Japanese fans following the Korean cheer,” and “It’s great to see him working hard to spread awareness of Korea in Japan.”
