►►Taegoon feels burdened by DBSK’s Jaejoong?

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.”

►►[VID] Brian Joo plagiarizes Taegoon’s “Call Me remix”?

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.

►►Taegoon to be featured in Mnet documentary & Japan’s popular magazine next year

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. Since then, Taegoon has released three albums, charmed his way into many fans’ hearts both in Korea and overseas, and been dubbed the “2nd Rain” for his dance skills.

►►Celebs who turned Santa Claus: Kim Hyun Joong & Taegoon

Dressing up during the holidays as fan-service has become a common thing for stars? Here we have SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong, who dressed as Santa for SS501 Personal Asia Tour @ Hong Kong (Dec. 12th), and Taegoon, who also dressed up for his 1st Japan Concert “White Love” (Dec. 11th).



►►UEE and Wonder Girl Yoobin outshine their mentor Jin Tae Hwa

I liked Zin Taehwa’s new single “Fallen Angel” 🙂 and he looks so much better with black hair than blonde lol

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.


►►Taegoon sent a message in his fan cafe: “Are you well?”

This guy never fails to connect to his fans 😀

He wrote:

“Are you well?

I’m sorry to always say “It’s been a long time”… (but it’s true ^^)

Recently I’ve been coming and going back and forth to Japan~~^^

There will be a concert in Japan on the day of December 11th..^^

I’m frantic with the preparations….

►►Taegoon, “Even if the person I like has a partner, I will not give up”

haha I like his attitude…but I hope he isn’t the clingy kind 😉

Singer Taegoon showed his aggressive sense of love during the filming of SBS show Quiz! Sixth Sense.

Taegoon has solved the problem of “What if there is already a sweetheart for the person I like?” on the filming of Quiz! Sixth Sense today.

He says “I dash* even if there is a partner for the person I like. I will do it unconditionally because I do not want to have any regrets later.”

This episode of Quiz! Sixth Sense will air on November 22, 2009 at 10:45.

*Note: A “dash” means to send a letter of some sort to get to know a person better.

►►Taegoon & DBSK’s Jaejoong had a secret vacation together

I’m glad they still keep in touch…I think having friends help Jaejoong  in such troubled times right now 😉

It was revealed that TVXQ’s Hero Jaejoong and Taegoon recently went on a trip and spent 1 night and 2 days together in Busan.

The two stars spent 2 days from November 7 to November 8 together in Busan, both having a break for the first time in some time. Residents of Busan said they’d seen the two together at the local sea food market in Busan, and eating and resting together.

Both Taegoon and Jaejoong were born in January 1986 and grew up in the same hometown. Until now they have maintained a fantastic friendship.

Jaejoong had previously appeared in Taegoon’s debut MV Call Me earlier this year after Jaejoong’s long attempts to convince SM to let him appear in the video.

Meanwhile, Taegoon is enjoying popularity in Japan as he held a successful fanmeet in July, two events in November at Sanrio Puroland and a famous live house, and his first solo concert planned for December at Tokyo’s Nanako Zero Hall.

Taegoon is currently busy with activities for his 3rd minialbum, while Jaejoong’s kiss scene in Heaven’s Postman is collecting interest.

►►[VID] Taegoon calls DBSK’s Jaejoong on MBC ‘Quiz to Change the world’

haha the caller (Taegoon) is even more nervous than the person on the other side of the phone (Jaejoong)

During filming of MBC Quiz to Change the world, Taegoon was asked to make a call to Jaejoong of DBSK. The two are known to be close friends and have been photographed together hanging out recently.

Jaejoong told Taegoon, “Don’t be nervous. Act as you usually do around me!” They made everyone laugh with their humour and wit.

It is the second time Jaejoong has made a “voice cameo” on the program.

Cr: taegoon@wp

Taegoon also dances and sang on the show:

►►Taegoon confessed, “I had to lose 20kg in 2 months in order to debut”

20 kg = 44 pounds!!! That’s A LOT for 2 months first of all…

On October 29 broacast of SBS Power FM “Choi Hwa Jung Power Time” Taegoon confessed that he was not able to debut until he lost 20kg.

Before Taegoon made it into his current company, he was turned down by many agencies with only the words “You’re too bulky.” Taegoon says, “I only ate rice, and I only drank water to lose weight. With that I also did 4 hours of exercise each day. But when I finally ate again I regained 10kg.” causing laughter in the studio. Instead of going to measures to be thin, Taegoon says the only thing he does now is try to stay healthy by controlling what he eats.

He also shared that if you drink water which had red beans boiled in it, you will lose more weight than from drinking normal water.

Edit: This one article is exaggerating, there is another one here that talks about the same thing, he says was eating too, but barely. he was eating only rice and drinking water.

►►Taegoon & DBSK’s Jaejoong has a quite odd relationship

For one thing, they meet each other in Jaejoong’s car 😛

Especially in a time like this [referring to the dispute btwn SM and DBSK], Taegoon can’t help but to check up on TVXQ’s Hero Jaejoong.

We see each other often. But I don’t know much (about things like the lawsuit). I didn’t want to pry when my friend was having such a hard time. I just eat with him, have tea and things like that.

Taegoon has revealed that even though he has risen to stardom, because Hero Jaejoong is such a superstar, they practically have to prepare a 007 mission every time they meet.

We usually meet in Jaejoong’s car. We drink coffee together after parking in the waterfront of the Han River. Uh, when I put it like that, it somehow sounds a little odd. (laughs)

Translation: happy.colour @
Credits: { One World. One Red Ocean. One TVXQ! }

sounds like a rather intimate relationship to me XD
