[OPINION] I’m gonna try to explain what happened with CJES

​There has been a lot of outrage directed at CJES in the past 24 hours, and it is stemming from an interview that Lee Bo Eun gave about Dorian Gray and ticket sales.

So let’s get some background information straight first. 

Dorian Gray is an all new original musical that debuted this year. When ticketing happened, CJES had done absolutely no marketing aside from announcing that Kim Junsu and Park Euntae were going to be the leads. There were no MVs like we had with Dracula, barely any news articles on crucial days etc. Nobody even knew about a press call for Dorian Gray until the day of the actual press call. Fans and the public alike had absolutely no idea what this musical will be like.

Also, the venue is Seongnam Arts Hall. It is so far from Seoul that fans have called it the ‘Republic of Seongnam’ because it’s that far. If you were coming from Hongdae, it’s a 1.5 hour transit one way.


The show only runs Monday to Saturdays so people would have to go that far out mostly on weekday evenings despite majority of people having work the next day. Not fun.

A lot of musicals also have discounts for certain days in order to attract audiences. I’ve seen up to 40% off, but Dorian Gray offered no such discount. Also, September/October is a slow season for musicals as schools are back in session and it’s not a festive period like Christmas.

Tickets were not cheap too, so people who bought them were buying it based on Junsu’s name alone as there was no other info about the musical out.

Despite all this, tickets still sold very well at initial ticketing and 60,000 tickets have been sold so far. When I went on the first day of Dorian Gray, it was a full house.

Back to Lee Bo Eun, who somehow sprung up from nowhere in August and debuted as a ‘marketing manager’ for CJES. Because of her name, she is widely thought to be a relative / sister of Monica Lee Jae Eun, also a marketing exec at CJES who is just absolutely fantabulous at her job.

Anyway, an interviewer asked her why is it that there are seemingly more and more empty seats at Dorian Gray on weekdays. If I were a PR manager for the musical and for Junsu himself, I would touch on the inconvenient location, emphasize that this is a new and original musical that doesn’t have an established reputation (ie: Elizabeth or Les Mis) BUT “despite all the obstacles, we’ve sold 60,000 tickets and the Dorian Gray has been getting rave reviews. Please give it a chance.”

It’s kinda like answering ‘what is your biggest weakness?’ at an interview. You acknowledge a weakness but turn it around and explain what your strength is and how it supersedes the weakness. You know, common sense.

But not to Lee Bo Eun. She said some things that basically undermined Junsu’s ticket power and threw him under the bus which is BS considering everything I mentioned above this paragraph. She didn’t consider how she failed to market the musical properly. She didn’t consider how time and location affected attendance. Instead, she basically ran her mouth like an ungrateful and dumb child baited into giving the media something to ridicule Junsu with when in comparison, Dorian Gray is quite successful given all the barriers it faced and the crappy job that CJES did with promoting it. 

CJES posted that long post on Facebook which was basically an argument for how Junsu’s ticket power is still strong, but now instead of saying that from a position of success and pride, like Lee Bo Eun should have during in that interview, it sounds like a ‘no but wait guys! I can explain!’ kind of plea. Now, there are articles about the post itself and those who find every opportunity to drag Junsu down (musical fans, SM fans) are rampant on the articles.
Here’s the worst thing, this is not the first time Lee Bo Eun messed up in the exact same manner. She undermined Junsu, Dorian Gray, and the ticket sales in an interview back in August as well! Fans asked for feedback as to why she said those things back then too, but Cjes was silent that time. They actually played victim instead, simply posting a comment on Instagram saying ‘Please don’t attack us, thank you’

How do you do this twice, within less than 3 months? To me, she sounds less like a marketing manager for Junsu and more like an anti. I don’t know how Lee Bo Eun became a manager for CJES when she is so mentally juvenile, professionally inexperienced, and completely shameless by refusing to learn from her past mess up. One thing is for sure though, CJES is an anchor that drags Junsu down, and Lee Bo Eun should never, ever talk about Junsu again.

[TRANS] 150516 Junsu’s beautiful words towards fans


My fans started saying this one day. “Junsu used to be on the aloof side towards fans and distanced himself to some extent, but it seems like he’s trying to communicate more by sharing more things, and is kindly interacting with fans up close” so my fans say they are thankful to me. I thought hard about this. I was and am still thankful for my fans, I definitely didn’t know how to treat people because I was young, and I was also afraid of fans before… Sasaengs would secretly take pictures of me and track my location. I had no freedom, so I was thankful for my fans but also scared of them. But you know, what I want to say is… that gratitude shouldn’t be felt by you guys to me but me to you all. Fans and I both knowing the limits and protecting that.. this trusting relationship.. I’m not just saying this, it feels like you’re my colleagues and family. I have changed without me knowing. I thought it was amazing so I thought about it carefully, and the answer is that it’s not that I have changed but everyone has changed me~ So you all have nothing to be thankful about to me. Instead, I should be saying ‘thank you’… this may seem like rambling but I really wanted to say all this.

Hearing the word ‘fans’ used to startle me but now, I see the mature actions and intentions of you all. Stemming from trust, I want to share more and walk more with you as colleagues or family… and make it feel like we are friends.. Thank you for changing a person like me.


Jeju Island was fun~

[TRANS] 150407 Nagoya Concert Day 1: Junsu’s ments


Everyone, have you missed me? I wanted to meet you all in Nagoya. Starting with Osaka, Seoul, Shonghai…Ah, Shanghai? haha, Thailand, Tokyo, Fukuoka and today, Nagoya! I’m finally in Nagoya. It’s the last stop in my tour.

It’s the day before the last today, because tomorrow is the last day. It feels like the last day to me though. I will work hard as I feel that way! Ah, it’s my first time in Gashi Hall? It’s been a while? Ah, I was sitting in the dressing room, and I remembered having fun with my members. haha

I’ll sing a new song from my new album now. Ah but, it’s kind of weird to say a ‘new’ song from my ‘new’ album right? haha. Please listen, X Song. (he’s poking fun at his Japanese skills ^^)

I want to master Japanese, but it’s quite tough. I will work hard until the day I come close to mastering it ~audience claps~

Truthfully, I’m not ‘hot’ recently, because I’m lonely… You might not know, but I’m already 30 years oldㅠㅠ I want to become ‘hot’ but you always say I can’t. Aren’t you guys being too much? Telling me to get married at 77… Telling me to live life alone while you all have boyfriends.. or husbands.. You all have lovers right? ==! You have them!!!!!! Since you’re all here… I’ll put that energy into my concert today. Ah, but it’s something I always say but, for real, I… my real side!! I’m ready to show you all my real side in full. I’ll resist today though, because there are middle and high schoolers here.. But I’m a healthy 30 year old man.. Recently, my third… ah what should I call it; shall I call it the 3rd? My 3rd growth phase has arrived. My dreams are often… and often when I’m lying on my bed after concerts too… well, it’s good to experience many things as an artist right? I’m sorry hahaha. Well until the day we can talk about deeper things together… Let’s do that together. The day all my fans become adults will come right? For sure…? There are middle and high schoolers right now but…. if you all become adults, I’ll show you some glamorous performances and outfits.

Seems like there are a lot of men today? Ah.. I could see you since a while back! Are you married? …… He said he’s married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How did you first come to my concert? With you mom? sister? Ah, someone recommended to you? Ah, it’s exactly the middle of my concert right now. How is it? Is it alright? Haha thank you.

(To a fan who he recognized) Ah, Nagoya!! You came again? You went to Fukuoka too? You came to all my concerts? Ah… is that your mom next to you? But seriously, there are a lot of men in the audience today. Why is that…

(Introducing Genie Time) Recently, this part that makes me more nervous than my performances and singing… I’ll do everything as usual today too!

(Genie Time Wish #1) It’s my favorite song from the first musical I did… Will I be able to sing it well…haha. It’s a song from the musical Mozart. ~I Am, I Am Music~

(Genie Time Wish #2) Wah, it’s a song from a long time ago. Ah… this song.. Ah. You’re my melody? Ah it’s in Japanese. ~audience laughs~ What can I say.. it’s from 7 years ago…. ~You’re My Melody~

(Genie Time Wish #3) Ah. This is from a long time ago. You’ll forgive me if I can’t sing it well right? Stolen my soul~ haha. Is this really a song I sang before? haha. ~Tonight~

Ah, everyone, the segment is like this haha. Ah… it’s… kind of… it’s a segment where I don’t know what comes out. Okay, last one! What should I do? In Japanese? Hm? Ah what Japanese song would be nice? Ah… yeah my face is very red right now, right?

(Genie Time Wish #4) Please dance~ Songs I don’t know could come out though. Is that okay? (to the staffs) Are you ready? ~random play dance~

I really see a lot of men in the audience today. (male fan screams JUNSU!!!) Ah, are we doing this already? I’ll hear the men first. Everyone! Do this! In unison! alright? Women, you can’t yell JUNSU (pretending to be male) alright? Okay. Men, go!

Ah should I do people in their 10s too? 20 year olds can’t participate, only up to 19 year olds. Let’s do newborns to 19 year olds.

Then, shall we do 20s, 30s, 40s too? Why? Okay, let’s do 20s, 30s and 40s, go! Ah, most of you are in this category haha. Lastly, let’s do 50s and 60s. Age is age but strength is still strength. Do as much as you can, okay? haha You can yell quietly as well, just do as much as you can. Alright, go! Ah, don’t go (slowly) Juuuunsuuuuu, say it quickly, Junsu!!

Ah, I really like Nagoya, because there’s hitsumabushi in Nagoya.. haha. Though I just got to Nagoya yesterday, I’ll definitely go eat it!!!! Is there anyone who hasn’t ever had hitsumabushi before? Oh? You haven’t had it? Why…? Isn’t it delicious? Ah.. you had monja? Why? That’s Tokyo’s… Are you from Tokyo? Ah, no wonder. But a Korean here (referring to himself) has even had hitsumabushi… If you come to Nagoya, you must have hitsumabushi. I came to Nagoya for hitsumabushi… Ah, but you all can have hitsumabushi in Tokyo too. Everyone here can eat hitsumabushi at any time.. I envy you haha.

I’ll be performing as L in the musical Death Note starting in June. Another video must’ve been revealed today right? haha. (fans say ‘give us your towel’) Ah, you want my towel? But my sweat is all over it… I do want to give it to you but if I throw it, it could become dangerous for you all..

This is something I’ve talked a lot about recently. Doing 3 day 2 night concert sometime… 2 nights with everyone! haha. Ah concert tour? This probably won’t work as a tour..? It’s a bit hard to do as a tour… Washing up? Ah, then I’l build a huge bath house…? What will you all wear to bathe? (audience shouting ideas) bikini? towel? Ah.. but if you bathe with just a towel it’s kind of… ;; Okay, I’ll really move on to the next song now haha (audience goes EHHH??) ah, you are all so good at acting. Seriously, your acting is amazing.

[OTHER TWITTER] Mama Kim and ASX share cute stories of Junsu

2015-04-05-20-32-31 2015-04-05-20-32-46


Junsu reserved a restaurant as it’s our wedding anniversary today and we were so touched while having the meal. But when it came time to pay, Junsu had no intention of taking care of the bill! I said “Hey~ son~ since you invited mom and dad out for a meal, you should pay right?” to which his lips curled up and (with a bright expression), he laughed, “Mom~ I didn’t bring my wallet” This guy… such a cutie pie~ㅋ


We thought of the story from Mama Kim’s birthday last year, so we are releasing this special behind-the-scenes episode~ Omonim, do you remember this? ^.^ @zunoxiahmom


2015-04-05-20-33-03Yes! It’s fresh in my memory~ It’s an episode that I’ll never forget^^ I’m so thankful for Junsu’s funny intention that day that I still haven’t been able to spend that money..ㅋ

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.33.53 PM

This might be sudden.. but I’m getting married. Fans wanted me to get married at 77 but I can’t keep that promise, I’m sorry. I also have a dream of becoming the head of a household during my lifetime, you’ll understand me right? Please congratulate me^^

April. The first package of its kind is coming to Toscana. We’ve prepared rooms on the moon, and even planted palm trees. Reserve now! l

Can I see rabbits too? I’ll reserve if I can see rabbits~

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.24.37 PM

We’ve asked the rabbits and they said yes. You can reserve 🙂


Okay~ I’ll prepare some carrots. I’ll reserve then ^^ Please give me a room with a view of Korea’s front

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.25.13 PMAh! If there’s a room where Bora Bora is visible, please give me that oneㅜ

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.27.50 PM

We are always prepared. We plan on constructing Bora Bora on the moon. It might be hard to see, so we enlarged it 🙂


Amazing… Where is the water from?

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.29.01 PM

This is actually a trade secret. Jeju Island has an abundance of water since old times and especially, Toscana has a large pool!!!

You guys are second to none.. My last question is, the moon is very far so how did you send water all the way there?

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.29.48 PM

We might be being presumptuous but we understand that you went yourself!


ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I will become a butterfly and fly over. Thank you for answering my questions so earnestly. I will have to give you a bonus!

Thanks Wonsik-ah. I’m going to reserve a Toscana package and go to the moon for my wedding so get me a ticket to space~~ Ah if I meet the rabbits I’ll need some carrots so prepare that for me too.

But they said you can go in 40 years, so I reserved itㅎㅎㅎㅎ

Heol. You want me to go when I’m 70? No way! I’m going immediately! 

You’re going to do your concert first, right?

Ah! Yes! Hyung…ㅜ

There’s soul in our flows (= referring to their rap having soul)
Farm fields? ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ the thing we said back then
Sleep well, my yeonghon, my soul, my tamashi (yeonghon = Korean, tamashi = Japanese for soul)

(T/N: The farm story is from a 2010? interview where Junsu said that after the split, they had to seriously consider the possibility that they would never be able to sing ever again. Junsu said they thought about going to the countryside and farming.

This rap-off looks spontaneous and fun on the surface, but under the goofiness, Junsu and Jaejoong also covered deeply rooted issues that really are not justified. What’s so bad about putting Junsu on stage? Why can’t Junsu go on a radio show hosted by the very artist who featured in his comeback album’s title song? Why did these talented artists feel so much despair that they contemplated moving away and farming, just because they dared to fight for their rights and freedom? I’m sure the two of them started this rap-off with a playful mindset, but some more topics came out naturally and Junsu’s rap became more and more serious. I decided to write this more detailed translation/explanation because I saw some comments that painted their rap battle as thoughtless, dorky rambling so I hope this post can give everyone some more information on the rap’s meaning and significance)

Fans: Yes!

Junsu: (chuckles) Well this was 답정너
(T/N: Dabjeongneo – popular, trendy phrase that’s short for 답은 정해져 있고 넌 대답만 하면 돼. It means ‘The answer is already set. You just have to say it’)

Fans laugh at the reality that Junsu knows this phrase

Junsu: For X Song today, I’ve changed my outfit.

Fans cheer

Junsu: (chuckles) You all… What I’m guessing is probably right. Usually the audience’s cheering is louder when I face the front instead of the back, but it’s the opposite when I perform X Song.

Junsu: When I sing… mm… Men and women are the same.

Junsu: I’m sorry.

Fans asking Junsu to throw the towel he just used

Junsu: Ah you want this?

Fans: Yes!

Junsu: Um, you’re all misunderstanding something… you must be thinking that my sweat is very clean or something… but it’s the same (as yours).

Junsu: Actually you know, in the past, regarding the feeling of wanting someone’s towel, I wondered how to understand it. I’m very thankful that you like me so much that you want something like this, but I wondered would I be able to want it too if I liked someone. When Beyonce had a concert in Korea, she wiped her sweat and gave the towel to the front section. I wanted it too at that point! So I thought “Ah, is this how it feels?” Is that right?

Fans: YES!

Junsu: I’m no Beyonce but thank you very much. I thought “Ah so this must be the feeling”. I was also… She just wiped her sweat but it felt like it was Holy Water (chuckles) Anyway, I am giving you my thanks indirectly like this.

Tukutz: My wish?

Tablo: Yes. You had your hand up for a long time.

Tukutz: Yes yes.

Tablo: You were like “me me me!” What did you want to wish for?
