Yunho is Outstanding. Seriously.

Yunho is outstanding.  Yes, I said it.  I get an incredible gut feeling about him. I don’t know when I started to feel such thoughts about that particular young man.  He is a hard-working, loyal, natural-born leader who doesn’t shy away from responsibility.

Months ago I came to this conclusion about Yunho even though I have never had a “bias” towards him.

By his own admission, TVXQ’s designated leader has had a highly difficult life.  He’s had to deal with various challenges and tough situations which have made him accustomed to hard work.  I bet Yunho can be thrown into almost any situation and he would be immediately able to handle himself well. 

I think at some point in his life he will positively affect the lives of thousands (possibly millions) of people in a way which may or may not have anything to do with music.  When I say he’s destined for big things, I mean HUGE things as long as he keeps his head clear and refuses to bow to guilt-trips from those who claim to have his best interest in mind.

This single includes songs from the cool R&B genre to songs which touched people’s hearts, reflecting the great and handsome charm of Xiah Junsu.
The singing becomes the soul in an album.
As a singer, Xiah Junsu has taken an important step from here.

Q: Xiah Junsu finally started as a solo artist. First of all, can you tell us how you’re feeling?
A: I feel very nervous and stressed out, but I’m also very happy. All in all, I’m having mixed feelings about it.

Q: Are you still feeling stressed?
A: Of course! Every time, I always think whether I’m capable of giving a good performance for everyone.

Q: So, what’s the theme of this solo project?
A: This single is entitled “XIAH,” the name which I use in Korea. As a singer, I hope that my music can reflect more of myself. I think “XIAH” can describe the theme for this solo.

Q: “XIAH” also shows a strong demonstration of Junsu’s personality. It’s a really good song.
A: What do you mean?
Q: (laughs) I think all the songs are nice.
A: Ah, that’s great! The CD is already on sale. Have you heard the songs yet?

Q: I heard the songs already so I’m recommending it to people around me.
A: You have to!

SM Efforts to Control the name “DBSK” Gets Shot Down, Trademark App Denied

Another blow for SM Entertainment (SM), the Korean management company, some critics say, that thinks its okay to sign kids to 13 year contracts and treat them like slavesX indentured servants.

Months ago, and after the three members took their case against SM to court, the management company tried to trademark the rights to the name “DBSK”.

SM claims they “withdrew” the application to trademark the names. Fans, however, say they have found information to the contrary. According to translated reports, SM’s application to trademark that name was previously rejected.

That means SM does not own the name “DBSK” and may also mean they can’t prevent the guys from using it.
