[Concert Report] The Smile Project brought Asian stars together including Bae Yong Joon and Kim Hyun Joong.

2010/12/15 Reporter An Min Jeong

On the 14th, about 45,000 people gathered at the Tokyo Dome for the charity event, “Smile Project.”. I truly and clearly experienced Yonsama’s power there.

The Smile Project brought 3 hours of continuous free appearances from Asian stars including those from Korea (Bae Yong Joon, Kim Hyun Joong and Hwan Hee), Japan (Gackt, Komuro Desuya, and Nakata Hidetosi), and Taiwan (Vaness Wu and Jeong Won Chang). This project brought a tremendous audience together for those 3 hours. The principle reason why this was possible was Yonsama Bae Yong Joon.

First, let me explain the details about planning the event. “Smile Project” was produced as one of DATV’s projects. DATV is a cable channel that specializes in Asian entertainment in Japan. The program conveys the message, “Help the Asian Children in need.” The event gives appearing stars the opportunity to donate their favorite items for auction; the profits for those items are mostly donated.

But, even though it is a special program, it’s not easy for the cable channel to bring foreign stars to one place at one time. Moreover, It’s impossible to explain the amount of influence that Yonsama has over the entertainment industry to bring these international top stars together (they came for free).

miss A’s Suzy is now in Japan for the filming of the new KBS2TV drama, ‘Dream High’.

On December 18th, JYP Entertainment told Money Today Star News, “Suzy left for Japan today to film for the drama. She will return after three nights and four days of filming.”

Due to her Japan trip, Suzy did not appear on this week’s episode of MBC’s ‘Show! Music Core’ with SHINee’s Minho, Onew, and T-ara’s Jiyeon.

[News] Retires as an actor? Bae Yong Joon is wandering

"There is a possibility that I might suddenly stop acting” Significant Statement.
Strong “Hallyu Star” Image. Getting harder to select the work.
Upset from the Discontinued Communication with Public. 
Worries about the Identity between Businessman (and Actor.)

#. Bae Yong Joon retires as an actor?

At the interview after the event, Bae Yong Joon made a statement indicating the retirement. He talked about “Family Photo Project” with his fans and he further said “ I might work for the next 10 or 20 years, but I might not. There is a possibility that I might suddenly stop acting. That’s why I’m preparing for it” He also said “I had issues and concerns. I wasn’t able to resolve them easily. My concern is about my present situation.” He opened his heart by saying that “I wandered for a while. I felt emptiness in that weak moment.”

It was enough to judge that his concerns were very serious even though he is at the top as a Hallyu Star. Last year’s interview, Bae Yong Joon stated, “I want to start farming in the countryside.” He deeply indulged in experiencing the Korean culture while he wrote “A Journey in Search of Korean’s Beauty” 

But when he was asked about that what kind of work he wants to do, he responded, “Anything is fine with me. Movie is okay and drama is okay too.” It is uncertain.

The charity event, “Smile Project” at Tokyo Dome in Japan. Meet Bae Yong Joon.
[Money Today Star News Tokyo (Japan) = Reporter Kim Hyun Rok] 

He just came down from the stage after he met over 30,000 fans at Tokyo Dome. Bae Yong Joon (38) was definitely “Yonsama” when he was smiling and waving with a composed demeanor from about 50m distance. But he is a totally different person when he falls into a chair after he changes from a suit to a cardigan. Was I the only one surprised when he asked us first, “Did you eat something?”, with his eyes wide open even though he was tired?

The interview started when we sat around the table in the waiting room. He gradually started looking like Bae Yong Joon from “Yonsama” when the interview went on. He passed off uncomfortable questions well, and went about sensitive issues appropriately. But he didn’t avoid the critical issues. The interview time took over 40 minutes until he stood up when someone from his agency kept bugging him that the staff of Tokyo Dome couldn’t go home because of us.

Kim Hyun Joong “Feels good when being referred to as Little Yonsama”

Singer cum actor Kim HyunJoong revealed that “I don’t feel upset when being called ‘Little Yon-sama’”

On 14-Dec, Kim HyunJoong was at Tokyo Dome for charity event ‘Message! To Asia’, and had a short interview time with reporter from Korea at a late hour after ending the event. Ambitions in the future as a Hallyu Star, desire to be both singer and actor, Kim HyunJoong said frankly on his thoughts about being called as ‘the 2nd Bae YongJoon’.

In regards to being labelled as ‘Post Yon-sama’ ‘The 2nd Bae YongJoon’, Kim HyunJoong said “I don’t feel upset when being called as that. I think that it is a compliment this way because ‘Yon-sama’ has an extreme influence on culture. I wish to become even just half as good as him. My weapon is to be able to act, dance and sing, so I think I will be something, be it ‘The 2nd Yon-sama’ or ‘The 1st Kim HyunJoong’.”

Still cuts previewing 2PM Taecyeon’s ‘acrobatic action scene’ have been revealed by the KBS 2TV’s “Dream High” team.
In the drama, Taecyeon plays the role of ‘Jin Guk,’ a prodigal talent that puts everything he has on the line to fulfill his passion for dancing. Despite being a rebellious teenager with a poor academic record, he manages to catch the eye of a director at Girin Arts High School, through which he cultivates his hidden talent and dreams of one day becoming a global superstar.
Producers revealed that Taecyeon will be showing off powerful action sequences for a scene where ‘Hye Mi’ (miss A’s Suzy) gets kidnapped by Taecyeon’s debt collectors.
Park Jin Young, the producer in charge of the drama’s dancing, singing, and music, further revealed, “Ok Taecyeon and Jang Wooyoung will be showing off amazing performances, the likes of which have never been seen before.”

[Summary of Article Trans] "Visiting Bae Yong Joon's House"

suehan: It's a long article, but there are things that we already know so I only translated what I thought is necessary. This is a re-post of an article in "Woman Sense" Magazine.

BYJ's house is going through a renovation and "Woman Sense" went to visit. There were about ten people working throughout the house. The house has a basement level and two floors above it, making it a three-story house.

As the reporter went inside, there was nothing but beams and a finished elevator. In the front yard, there was cement pouring all over to make the parking garage.

Yon-sama mail dated Dec. 15

First there was a video footage shot when BYJ visited Children’s Medical Center (Kanagawa Prefecture). Besides the scenes previously aired, there were some unreleased scenes. We saw several scenes in which he visited hospitalized children and their parents; one of them was of a baby who was born four months premature. Patting the baby gently, BYJ said to her mother, “This baby wanted to see her mother sooner….” I was really moved by this.

When asked about the premature babies, he said, “I was 4400 grams when I was born.” This caused the laughter from the audience. I guess BYJ family responded to the figure of 4400 and other fans responded to the large number. ( ̄▽ ̄)b
