May Issue of GQ, translation of his Interview

Q:What are your plans of your activities for 2011?

A: I finished with “Athena” and now am working as part of the sub-unit which works in Taiwan, Super Junior-M. I am also planning to show a new side of me through the drama which is based on Japanese popular manga “Skip Beat” called “Extravagant Challenge”. I will be working with my member, Donghae and Taiwanese popular actress Chen Yi Han. Also, we are not sure of the date yet, but we are planning to visit our Korean fans through Super Junior’s new album in the 2nd half of the year. There are also other plans. I think this year is the busiest, and the most fruitful year yet.

Q:What is the difference of the life as Super Junior’s member and as an actor Choi Siwon?

A: Rather than trying to focus on one, I try to devote to both as actor Choi Siwon and Super Junior’s member Choi Siwon. But because I am trying to do both roles, members are more considerate when it comes to scheduling. Thanks to the members who respect the actor Choi Siwon, and for their great help, I am able to maintain my singing life and acting life balanced.

Q:Who is your favorite fashion designer? Even if it’s not a particular fashion designer, what kind of fashion do you like?

A:Rather than being fashion designer of a particular brand, I think it is more admirable and excellent, if they are able to reflect the country’s culture through their design. In that, I admire fashion designer Andre Kim. Maybe it’s because I had the opportunity to walk in his show three times, but his clothes seem to be perfect in any way on any stage. Also, I think his design is a good mixture of Korean and modern beauty, which, I think, is the cultural icon that represents Korea.

Q:There aren’t many opportunities to see your airport, press conference fashion, fashion that is natural. What is your style?

A: Rather than extravagant and unique designs, I prefer simple and basic colors. I like to give change among those simple and basic colors. Usually, I wear t-shirt and jeans, and buy the shirts that I like in different colors.

Q:Then, what do you think is the most important when it comes to styling?

A:Ever since I was young, I was told that to a man, a watch is very important. There is also a saying that the watch completes a man’s fashion. I like simple and basic clothes but prefer watches of different designs and styles.

Q:What is your favorite style of watches? Sporty? or classic? Bracelet like watches that seems like accessories or normal straps?

A:Rather than daring designs that are very “bling bling”, I prefer classy and leather straps, like the one that I wore for today’s photo shoot. But in the summer, I wear sporty ones to give an accent to the overall look of my clothes.

Q: Lastly, please say something to your fans.

A: Thank you for always loving me, and of course, Super Junior. Because of your love, Super Junior members and I are here, growing. Like now, let’s go through the hardships together, rejoice together when something good happens, and make a lot of good memories. Thank you.

Super Junior-M, "Perfection" repackaged album to go on sale simultaneously in Korea & Taiwan on 29th

Super Junior-M, who is active in China and Taiwan, has repackaged their album “Perfection”, and is expected to be on sale simultaneously in South Korea and Taiwan on the 29th (of April). 

In this time’s repackaged album, they have even included a popular Taiwanese folk song 《西风的话 (Whistle of Zephyr)》, and was rearranged by popular composer Kenzie to possess an acapella feel. The song is covered by Kyuhyun, Ryeowook and Zhou Mi, and at the same time the Korean version of the cover will also be specially included in the “Perfection” album that would be released in China and Taiwan. 

The DVD includes the behind-the-scenes footages of Super Junior-M’s album cover shooting and MV-filming location, and also the Korean and Chinese versions of the “Perfection” music video. These classics will no doubt be the perfect gift that is anticipated by the fans. 

The Korean version of “Perfection” and “Whistle of Zephyr” will first be released through the three major sites in China, Sina, Sougou, and NetEase Entertainment, and is currently being broadcasted continuously. After they were first made public on the 18th on the broadcasting stations and television programmes in Taiwan, it has once again attracted the attention of the Asian fans. 

In February, after Super Junior-M’s title song “Perfection” was released, it shot to the top of China’s most authoritative music chart “Music Billboard”, and on the album sales chart in Taiwan, they have also occupied the first position on (the charts of) Guangnan, CCR, and also the music broadcasting website HITFM, exhibiting unrivalled popularity. 

Aside from that, Super Junior-M’s “Perfection” has also occupied the first spot on the album sales chart B2S Top20 of Thailand’s biggest music chain store BS2, receiving fervent love from the Thai fans. 

In addition, they have also won the Most Popular Group award on the “Global Chinese Golden Chart” award ceremony which was held in Taipei on the 9th (of April), once again confirming their red-hot popularity throughout Asia. Super Junior-M plans to hold a diverse range of activities throughout Asia, inclusive of China.

SM, to hold joint concert in September at Japan's Tokyo Dome with a scale of 100,000 audiences

SM Entertainment will be holding the “SMTown Live” concert at Tokyo Dome on the coming 3-4th of September. 

The concert, which was initially scheduled for 9-10th of April but was postponed due to the earthquake in Japan, will be held for two days in September, and about 100,000 audiences are expected (to watch the concert). 

SM Entertainment predicted that “In addition to the ‘SMTOWN LIVE in TOKYO’ which was held for two days on the 25th and 26th of January at the Yoyogi National Stadium, Tokyo, Japan, which had 24000 audiences in attendance, and exceeded 40000 ticket purchasers, seems that the reaction towards this time’s performance in Tokyo Dome will be even more fervent (than before).” 

On the other hand, the joint concert “SMTown Live” between the artists under SM Entertainment has had successful performances in Seoul, Tokyo, LA and other places, and will also be having a performance on the coming 10th of June in Paris, France, showing off SM’s global brand power.

South Korea's K-pop craze lures fans and makes profits, SuJu mentioned on BBC News

Super Junior, who with 13 members are one of the world's biggest boy bands, are household names across Asia

Korean wave
Bands such as Kara and Super Junior have become household names in much of Asia. They belong to a new hip generation of South Korean artists that has launched the musical genre K-pop.
Coupled with the success of Korean TV shows and films, they are part of a wider cultural movement here that has become known as Korean wave.
The number of people who visited South Korea specifically to attend events such as album launches, concerts and awards ceremonies doubled to 34,000 in 2010. 

Two cents' worth
Mr Youn says K-pop has proved such a hit in Asia because it offers something different, but is still familiar enough for audiences to relate to.
And the fact that K-pop's unique style is attracting foreign fans is something that benefits both the people who visit South Korea and the bands whose music they like. 
In fact, according to music industry veteran Bernie Cho, K-pop stars do much better financially when they sell their music abroad, rather than just at home. His company, DFSB Kollective, markets and distributes a range of Korean music.
"If you bought a single on iTunes in the US, you're paying around $1," he says.
"In Korea, the price was originally 50 cents, it dropped to 12 cents, then it dropped to six cents. And the artists are getting 35% of that - they're making two cents a download."
According to Mr Cho, many of K-pop's top acts are selling 100,000 or 150,000 albums straight after release. It is an impressive number in any major market.
"Music is so heavily discounted in Korea that a lot of them are looking to go overseas, or are relying on their popularity to boost their income in other ways, like acting or advertising," he says.
That diversity of roles is helping to spread their appeal to other countries, as well as to other areas of the South Korean economy. Many tourists who come for the music also buy the clothes and cosmetic brands promoted by Korean stars.
According to South Korea's Trade and Investment Agency, income from cultural exports like pop music and TV shows has been rising by about 10% a year. In 2008, it was worth almost $2bn.

Super Junior to Debut in Japan?

Popular group Super Junior will show off their first Japanese album. It is analyzed as a strategic move to expand to the Japanese market. Many Korean idol groups challenged the Japaneses market. But Super Junior has never officially expanded to the Japanese market. 

The management company SM Entertaiment stated on April 26, "the group will be releasing their first Japanese single "Beauty(Bonamana). Starting next month, the song will be shown on major Japanese TV channels as the commercial song for Japanese convenience store company Circle K Sunkus." "Beauty" is already a hit song in Korea as well as the countries all over Asia.

Super Junior has contracted with Avex at the end of last month and has thought about advancing into the Japan market. Even though they did not officially debut, they held 3 concerts at Yokohama arena, Japan in February. A SM rep stated, "even thought they will be releasing a single in Japanese, they will not be doing any promotion activity in the country. Their official debut will occur at a later time."
