A heartfelt “Thank You!”…

Posted: October 6, 2010 in Uncategorized

Before this day finally ends, I would just like to say thank you to everyone who remembered my special day and made it a very nice and memorable one. Though I was not able to spend my birthday with my close friends from high school and college, at least I got to spend it with my family and my new officemates. I’m happy to have spent it with new friends at work and I really enjoyed sharing a good laugh with them about anything and everything under the sun.

Another year has been added to my age and hopefully this will also equate to a “stronger” and “more mature” me. I hope the saying “with age comes wisdom” holds true to me. :)

Again, thank you to everyone who made this day an amazing one! You guys rock! :D

101005 “Yunho, Wears Scott Sternberg” And SungKyunKwan Scandal In High Cut

High Cut no.38 October 7th edition

U-Know Yunho Photoshoot (13 pages)
Korea’s representative superstar U-Know Yunho and America’s representative designer Scott Sternberg, and their witty encounter. The romantic autumn story told by these two men.

On Location with SungKyunKwan ‘Flower Scholar’ Quartet for 12 Hours (4 pages)
The ‘flower scholars’ of SungKyunKwan pull the strings of their bows with all their might. ‘Pass!’ Without a single error, the arrows pierce the hearts of women. 300km away from Seoul in Youngam, North Jeolla Province, you can meet the hot seniors ‘Garang’, ‘Yeorim’, ‘Geol Oh’ and ‘Daemul’.

TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho is on the cover for this edition. This was the second time we met since he last graced the cover around the time he was filming the drama <Heading to the Ground> last year. At the Han River Park that was drenched in autumn, U-Know Yunho participated in the photoshoot with an easygoing attitude, much unlike his superstar status. Scott Sternberg is a popular designer who represents the look of America’s Ivy League. When we asked Sternberg what he thought about U-Know Yunho, he complimented the star and his fashion sense and couldn’t stop saying “So cute!”

We traveled to the set of <SungKyunKwan Scandal> in Youngam, North Jeolla Province through the morning mist of the SeoHaeAn Highway. We forgot our weariness when we saw the ‘flower scholars’ Park Yoochun, Yu Ah In, Song Joong Gi, etc. and returned full of strength from their youthful passion.

101004 JYJ’s Album Pre-Orders Delayed.. With Fans Feeling Despondent

The pre-orders for the album of JYJ, created by Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu and YoungWoong Jaejoong, were delayed.

Pre-orders for the album were set to begin at 3pm KST on the 4th on various music sites but a few hours before it was to happen, it was delayed due to circumstances faced by the agency.

Each site uploaded a notice and stated, ‘We will inform you when the pre-order sales will be when the date is set.’

Pre-order Dates Changed
Hello, this is Synnara.
Pre-orders for JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu)’s album were scheduled to be at 3pm KST today.
However, the agency has requested for the unfortunate delay of pre-orders for the album.
We sincerely apologize for the confusion.
When the date for pre-orders are set, we will notify you as soon as possible.
Thank you.

Regarding this, fans of JYJ showed their feelings of despondency as they said, “I lied to the school saying that I had a dentist appointment just so I could order the album but it’s delayed due to circumstances faced by the agency?”, “I’ve been waiting in front of the computer since 12 so that I could order the album…”

JYJ’s first album ‘The Beginning’ is garnering attention from fans for the trio’s collaboration with famous American producers Kanye West and Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins.

The 99,999 ‘Luxury Package’ limited edition CDs are fueling the fans’ interest in pre-ordering the album.
