It’s so sad because ever since Taegoon came out with the “Call me” MV featuring Jaejoong, everyone thought that he used JJ to promote and thus making him feels pretty uncomfortable I guess 😦
Taegoon who is known to be close friends with Jaejoong of TVXQ said during an episode of My Name Is Taegoon that he does not want interviewers to ask him questions about Jaejoong.
Taegoon says “There’s a lot of people who thought poorly of me, they said I blackmail my friends and take advantage of TVXQ, there’s many people saying that.” He continued, “I often talked about it with Jaejoong, but I don’t like people to look at me like that. There were many people who regarded us as good, but a lot also said I took advantage of it. We were very hurt.. I didn’t talk about Jaejoong for a while. I request for them not to ask but they still do and write about it.”
Although they continually ask him about it, he says “It’s a challenge, I don’t want to give trouble to my friends. I don’t like bothering him.”
I agree that the beat and rhythm sounds the same but the song melody is very different! Either way I don’t think it’s that big of a deal..
After hearing the song 친구의 여자를 사랑했네 (Loved My Friend’s Girl) off of Brian Joo’s latest album, concerned netizens have pointed out the close similarities between the song and Taegoon’s Call Me remix off of his second mini album released earlier this year. With the beats and the overall sounds to the songs being almost identical, it is being called plagiarism.
haha Jaejoong and Taegoon are such great friends ^^
Looks like 2010 will start up bright and shine for singer Taegoon. Hopefully the rest of the kpop train will get back on track too ^^;
Mnet to kick off the new year with Taegoon documentary
On January 14, 2009, solo artist Taegoon made his debut with Call Me, calling the attention of many with his hot music video that starred TVXQ’s Jaejoong and actress Park Shin Hye.

Having made his comeback as a solo artist, Jin Tae Hwa from idol group Battle revealed a strange a twist of fate involving UEE and Yoobin.
During the filming of MBC ‘Quiz to Change the World,’ which was aired on the 5th, Jin Tae Hwa shared stories of his lifestyle as an elite trainee. In 2005, Jin Tae Hwa was able to emerge victorious on Mnet cable show ‘Battle Shinhwa,’ where Brown Eyed Girls’ Ga-In and Big Bang’s Seung Ri could not. He then continued on to debut as a member of Battle.
Jin Tae Hwa expressed, “Back then, there were two dongsengs who I met during practices: After School’s UEE and Wonder Girls’ Yoobin. I said to them proudly, ‘Since oppa will be debuting first, I will layout a path for you guys so just trust oppa and follow me.’ However, they both left the company and became much more successful than me.” His last comment made all the viewers laugh.
He does make a good point, however, as both his pupils are currently doing very well for themselves. While UEE is starring in numerous dramas, such as SBS “You’re Beautiful” and MBC “Queen Seondeok,” Yoobin is advancing into the U.S. market and even managed to rank #76 in the Hot Billboard 100 for her group’s single Nobody.
