Leader of SS501, Kim Hyun Joong is currently under a stressful dilemma with the end of his contract quickly approaching.
Kim Hyun Joong’s contract with DSP Entertainment will officially end on June 8th. There are rumors that he will separate from the other SS501 members and pursue an acting career. However, there are also opposing rumors that all the members of SS501 and the company have unofficially renewed the contract.
Furthermore, it is well known that Kim Hyun Joong is best friends with TVXQ’s Jaejoong. An unknown source said that there was a possibility that Kim Hyun Joong will enter Jaejoong, Micky, and Junsu’s current company. In fact, Hyun Joong and Jaejoong are currently living together, so it’s been said that the two best friends are currently cautiously contemplating about Kim Hyun Joong’s future.
Also, Kim Hyun Joong recently met with Bae Yong Joon. Netizens are now wondering if this meeting had anything to do with Hyun Joong’s contract. However, a representative of Bae Yong Joon clarified the situation, saying, “The meeting was strictly personal.”
Another source claimed that Kim Hyun Joong will leave DSP Entertainment, but will continue to be a part of SS501 and participate in their promotions and activities. This is similar to what the members of Shinhwa are doing right now. god also had a period when the members were in two different companies.
DSP Entertainment is currently trying to compromise with Kim Hyun Joong by saying that they will be fully supportive of his acting career while he is still a part of SS501.
I hope he’ll continue his success with SS501..otherwise fans would be really disappointed T_____T
TVXQ members who are in dispute with SM Entertainment regarding exclusive contract issue; Jaejoong, Junsu, and Yoochun are forming a three members unit in Japan.
According to the news aired by KBS 2TV ‘Entertainment Tonight’ on the 17th, Jaejoong, Junsu, and Yoochun are forming three members unit to explore new activities.
Official from TVXQ Japan agency, AVEX said, “The three members Junsu, Jaejoong, and Yoochun are already decided to form a new unit. The three will be active by continuing with new exclusive contract from AVEX.”
Regarding this, TVXQ agency SM Entertainment which had been appealed by the three TVXQ members related to exclusive contract provisional injunction, promptly filed a lawsuit in claiming for damages worth 2.2 billion won as expression of their strong regret.
However, AVEX official through conversation with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ retorted, “I think the 3 members are more like the victims here. Anyway, we’re done preparing for the compensation of damages. We did this (the Japan contract) because the situation allows us to make a contract. We see no legal problem at all.”
On April 15th, TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki’s Jaejoong is scheduled to appear on a new Fuji TV Japanese drama titled Sunao ni Narenakute / 素直になれなくて (Hard To Say I Love You). Before that happens, he made an appearance on Fuji TV’s popular variety show Waratte Iitomo (You’re Laughing).

TVXQ’s Jaejoong appeared at the telephone shocking corner of Waratte Iitomo. Jaejoong’s drama will start on the 15th on the same TV station.
The flowers which were sent for Jaejoong were from Eriko Kitagawa, EXILE, Every Little Thing, and Haruka Igawa. Many flowers lined up in the studio, and a good number of them overflowed into the lobby.
In the corner, Jaejoong shared by saying, “I do not get drunk no matter how much I drink” and clarified that since he eats a lot, weight training was indispensable.
He also said that he likes very hot food and recently he is fond of Curry House CoCo Ichiban’s “Super Spicy Powder.” He adds it on top of an already very hot curry which is rated with the highest spice number, #10 level at CoCo Ichiban.
Fans waiting for Jaejoong outside the studio:

With his trained figure and sweet decent features, one look from him will make you breathless. The idea of dating JeJung has made the hearts of countless young girls beat for him.
Starting from April 2010, he will debut as an actor in Japan on a new drama by Fuji TV, ‘Sunao ni Narenakute.’ This will be his first solo activity, and this has attracted a lot of attention from the public.
JeJung – “At first, I wasn’t able to believe it, even after I received the script itself. Only after I met up with Eita and the rest during rehearsal that reality began to sink in; I felt really nervous. (laughs) Though the staff and cast members told me that it will be just fine, that I should just be myself and relax, I still felt the pressure of acting. I hope I can get used to it sooner.”
In the drama, JeJung portrays a young doctor from Korea who falls in love with a girl (Haru by Ueno Juri) he gets to know through Twitter. It is a heartrending character who is in a one-sided love.
Unrequited love – of course I’ve experienced that; that’s why I feel really close to the character I’ll be depicting. I’m also the type who will want to follow the girl I’ve fallen in with, no matter where and when. I will take extra notice of those ‘tough’ girls who would say “I’m not interested in you,” even though they are. I might be an M-type* in love. (laughs) (*T/N: M = masochist. According to Japanese culture, you can either be an M-type ‘masochist’ or an S-type ‘sadist’ in love)
As many of you may know, kimchi is Korea’s most popular dish. Though it’s just a side dish, it’s used for more than just food. People actually say kimchi when they pose for a picture, just like how Americans say cheese when they smile for the camera.
There’s however a lot of bad blood between Korea’s kimchi and Japan’s kimuchi.
Last year, Jung Woo Sung went through a hard time because he spelled kimchi as “kimuchi” on a Japanese program and got criticized by Koreans for it. He later on apologized for his “mistake.”
Now, TVXQ’s Jaejoong is going through the same controversy. While shooting for a magazine, a Japanese morning program came to interview him. While posing for a photo he yelled, “Kimuchi!” Koreans are now mad that he didn’t say kimchi.
Some fans are saying people should be more understanding since he is in Japan so it makes sense to say kimuchi. But other netizens said, “He should be more careful as a Korean artist.”
The photoshoot of DBSK’s Jaejoong for Japanese magazine “Anan” was revealed on April 1st.
Masaharu Fukuyama and Kiyoshiro Kato etc,
all kinds of popular stars are featured in the cover page of anan.
And who is picked this time?
It is TVXQ’s Jaejoong.

Member Jaejoong will act in the sprig drama in Japan, he really is “IT!” (the hottest) person.
To prepare for this photo shoot, he skipped his meal a night before.
