JYJ Jaejoong’s Self Composed Song Nine, Signifies The 9 Years With TVXQ


After JYJ’s Jaejoong revealed the meaning behind his self composed song ‘nine’, it became a topic of discussion.

On last Nov. 27th and 28th, the two days concert were finally over. During the concerts the members first performed their self-composed songs such as ‘nine’ and ‘Fallen Leaves’. The self-composed songs caught many fans’ attention.

Jaejoong answered some of the fans’ questions about his self-composed song through twitter. Jaejoong confirmed, “The songs composed by the members in this concert were all completely composed, arranged and had their lyrics written by the members.” Thus starting the discussion about their self-composed songs. The hottest discussion was about Jaejoong’s self-composed song ‘nine’. A line in ‘nine’ lyrics, “Even though it’s hard to start over, but with everyone creating memories, I can’t hide it anymore”. Everyone became even more curious about the song when listening to its sad lyrics. To everyone that is curious about the lyrics of ‘nine’, Hero Jaejoong explained it this way: “From the day Yoochun had joined us, it has been 9 years”.

Jaejoong spent a lot of time writing the lyrics to ‘nine’. “The reason why it took so long for me to write the lyrics for ‘nine’ was because.. I was wondering if it would be better to use poetic expression… or other ways of expressions… And because this song would be presented to you for the first time at the concert, I wanted to express a feeling of ‘talking directly in front of your eyes’ thus it turned out like this.” He also said, “I used the basic chords that I learned when Yoochun first began teaching me how to play the piano, and I created the melody so that it would remind people of music from 10 years ago.. Yoochun who didn’t even know about it, said ‘Hyung.. Why does it have a kind of old feeling to it? Haha..’ ” revealing the little story behind the making of ‘nine’.

Fans had avid responses such as “It’s already been 9 years since they have been together” “So it actually signifies the 5 members of TVXQ” “Just listening to it makes my heart ache”. Other than ‘nine’, Jaejoong also talked about other songs such as ‘Pierrot’ and ’My Scenario’.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Producers of KBS 2TV’s music program, “Music Bank“, have revealed that they will be taking the show overseas by next year in order to allow foreign fans a chance to see their favorite artists up close.

Kim Jin Hong CP of the KBS variety team revealed on December 3rd:

“‘Music Bank’ is currently broadcast live in 54 different nations and manages to gather over 3 billion viewers. Starting next year, we will be personally visiting Japan, China, Taiwan, and others in order to record the show there.

A lot of foreigners come to watch ‘Music Bank’ in order to watch their favorite Hallyu stars. There were instances of a Chinese professor bringing her family over in order to wait for the program, and 15 teens from Germany all coming to visit. It’s amazing that they know the songs of SNSD despite the group having yet to debut in China or Germany.

Thousands of fans gather to watch Korean artists perform at the ‘Korea China Song Festival‘. Various Chinese broadcast companies try to earn the rights to broadcast the festival, demonstrating the popularity of Korean music in China.

Group NRG, who appeared in the festival nearly 10 years ago, has managed to maintain their fame in China, while another Korean female artist recently revealed her appearance fees in China to be in the thousands. ‘Music Bank’ especially has a promotional effect on the Hallyu culture.

The strongest content Korea has right now is Hallyu, and at the center of it is Korean pop. ‘Music Bank’ will be heading overseas in order to support Hallyu stars with their overseas expansion and to maximize our cultural exports.”

Member Hyoyeon was chosen as the best cleaner out of the group, earning the compliments of her fellow members for not only cleaning, but doing the dishes as well.

On the contrary, Jessica was chosen as the member that didn’t clean at all, making her the dirty girl of sorts. Befitting of her ‘ice princess’ nickname, Jessica didn’t even bat an eyelash once chosen, and calmly stated, “I’m not the type to clean,” causing the studio to burst out in laughter over her honest statement.
