JYJ‘s Junsu is gearing up for his Japan solo tour concert, with his agency giving everyone a first look at the concert poster. There is definitely a lot of greenery in this new and interesting poster.

JYJ’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, has been busy preparing for the “2014 XIA The Best Ballad Spring Tour Concert in Japan” set to be held in May in Tokyo and Osaka. As part of their preparations, the agency has finally revealed the poster for the much anticipated tour.

The poster in question shows Junsu in a simple clean white t-shirt, wearing a green wreath and surrounded by a large flowery branch. The imagery is quite befitting of a spring tour.

C-JeS Entertainment has told the press that “We have seen a tremendous response from local fans for this musical and ballad concert, a first in Japan. This poster, released prior to the opening of ticket sales, shows a pure, childlike and mysterious side to Junsu. The poster has also been received extremely positively.”

Crayon Pop’s “Uh-ee” Ruled Unfit for Broadcast Due to Japanese Lyrics



Girl group Crayon Pop’s new song “Uh-ee” was ruled unfit for broadcast by KBS. This was due to the song’s use of “bbikka bbunjjuk,” which is the Japanese style expression for the Korean equivalent of “bbunjjuk bbunjjuk,” meaning ‘shiny.’ In the reviews done by MBC and SBS, however, these lyrics did not pose any problem.

Crayon Pop’s agency Chrome Entertainment said that they’ve changed the lyrics to “bbunjjuk bbunjjuk” and requested another review of the song by KBS.

“Uh-ee” is Crayon Pop’s first single since their song “Bbabbabba” last June, and is a light-hearted song that features a trot-inspired melody and comical dance.

[netizens comments]

Article: [Exclusive] Crayon Pop reps, "We have edited 'pika bbunjjuk -> bbunjjuk bbunjjuk' for reevaluation by KBS"

KBS deemed a part of the lyrics in 'Uh-ee' unfit for broadcast for using the Japanese expression 'pika bunjjuk'.. bbunjjuk just means sparkly.

1. [+932, -42] So I guess if Pokemon was broadcast on KBS, Pikachu's name would have to be changed to Bbunjjukchu

2. [+630, -52] Why is English okay but not Japanese?

3. [+490, -52] Departing from the fact that it's Crayon Pop, this just seems wrong...

4. [+447, -53] This is why KBS is stupid...

5. [+77, -8] Pika bbunjjuk? How's that any different from us using words like bling bling

6. [+72, -7] I don't get why bling bling's allowed but not pika bbunjjuk

7. [+58, -6] Might as well ban English at this rate

8. [+49, -2] Chu Sarang shouldn't be on TV according to KBS's logic since half of her speech is Japanese
