SS301 talks about the past SS501’s other members sentimentally.

MBC FM4U [Park Kyung Lim’s 2PM Date] invited SS301 as guest for the broadcast on 26 February. On that day SS301 also talked about the other members from SS501 days, they said “[ETERNAL5] means the five person in SS is one (body), currently this is the best. People around us are very worried about the reunion of SS501, because everyone is working very hard on their solo activities, but we constantly heard about a reunion comeback, and also often heard about whether we want to reunite or not(?) these kind of questions.”

(I’m not sure if the chinese article is accurate cos it looks kinda weird to me…)

“Occasionally will meet up for a drink, and also talked a lot on thoughts of the future, will continue moving forward as SS501 again.” expressing that they are still missing SS501 days in their hearts.

Especially when asked about their thoughts on SS501 members Kim Hyun Joong and Park Jung Min, both of them also hold positive and firm attitude. “Jung Min said he has already memorised the choreography, Hyun Joong and his mum also will talk to us on the phone sometimes, it’s really wonderful and they cheered for us too, we will also definitely present the best side of us to everyone.”

SS301 will be holding their concert “U R MAN IS BACK” in Seoul on 19 and 20 March.

FM两个小时,歌曲,游戏,互动,整首唱了五首歌,有日文,有韩文,安可又加歌,SS501的胆小鬼,snow prince,dejavu,song for you,love like this的mix版,之前的五首里面有日文歌「星空」,没看够,我要去研究一下明天那场票还能买么[泪][泪][泪]今天满席[拜拜][拜拜][拜拜]

FM duration 2 hours, songs, games, interactions, full songs he sang 5 pieces, Jap songs, Kor songs, added songs during encore, medley of SS501’s Coward, Snow Prince, Deja Vu, Song For You, Love Like This. There’s ‘Hoshizora’ as one of the 5 full songs he sang. Full house today.


KJ talked a lot today, when he talked about a Jap word he learnt recently [kabe don] he said he didn’t do it before, then through the big screen he gave it a try, he said it looks like being drunk, then said he is not like that, Leader will be like that when he gets drunk, and even imitate Leader’s drinking speed, Kyu Jong said he can’t drink in the past, he was trained by Leader during their trainee days, now he likes to drink draft beer 500cc.


Kyu Jong said he slimmed down after entering army, Young Saeng also slimmed down. Said YS will send him his slimmed down pics and ask if it’s ok. Kyu Jong said Young Saeng’s figure is at his best now. Hmm Kyu Jong said this piece of convo must be kept secret (can’t let YS know. kkkkk)


Kyu Jong likes gyu don, he can say out which chain stores in Japan has what type of yummy gyu don. Sukiya’s is nice when you add curry, forgotten what he said about Yoshinoya and Matsuya, said he also ate gyu don yesterday.


Kyu Jong said he slept 4 hours every day in the past and it’s enough, but now even when he slept for 7 hours also felt it’s not enough, he will sleep whenever he got free time. He slept at 12mn last night and woke up at 9am this morning. Need to shave 3 times every day.


Kyu Jong said he is preparing for musical currently, and also learned piano very hard, said he doesn’t know how to play piano in the past. Last time in the group, it was Young Saeng who knew how to play piano. Now he is practising very hard, please look forward to it.


Kyu Jong said he will be releasing an album for the first time in Japan in July, will have more activities in Japan and asked fans to wait for him. During the last game time, the prize was a pair of flowery shoes, size of a baby’s feet. (Skipped some parts as FA is not clear)


Kyu Jong said his wish this year is to have a family trip, although it seem easy but he has never done it before because need to cater to everyone’s availability. When is his younger sister free? When is dad free? Hope they can make a trip this year, to Europe maybe~ few years back he mentioned he wants to go to outer space? Then when he talked about where he wished to go now, he said Okinawa. Because many friends and fans told him it’s a nice place, he hasn’t been there once.


Kyu Jong said Japanese is very difficult, he always forget when he woke up from his sleep. He said his brain is not good then sang a sentence of ‘Because I’m Stupid’. He only greeted in Japanese and started to converse in Korean throughout the FM.


During interaction time, there’s a segment where he will pick a number and have a direct conversation with fan, like making a phone call. He only greeted in Japanese and couldn’t carry on the convo further and he directly asked the fan if she knew Korean… The second fan that he picked was holding a card with Korean, he was so happy and said this one knew Korean, in the end she only know a little, end up they exchanged convo in short Jap and Kor words. Really funny.


There’s a segment to see what is inside Kyu Jong’s bag. There’s a bottle of water or lotion, he said it’s a sample from among his granny’s skincare products. There’s a lot of sample packs at home. There’s also a bottle of spray (in his bag) from France but no fans knew French so no idea what brand is it, there’s also a pair of glasses, a mask, a shaver, a Jap language book. He learnt a few words and everyone laughed.


Later he gave the spray to a fan, he even sprayed for the last time before giving it away. Then asked the fan to spray at surrounding fans.


A segment like ‘Kyu Jong make your wish come true’, fans were to write on a wishing card before entering the hall and now Kyu Jong have to draw out the cards and make the fans’ wish come true. He picked 4 fans up on stage, namely taking photo, back hug etc and additional fan service is to do a heart with Kyu Jong. Fan used a finger and joined with Kyu Jong’s finger to look like a heart shape.


Kyu Jong said he learned drinking from Leader during their trainee days, so his drinking habits were similar to Leader’s, soju and sake. He even mimicked Leader —

Leader: Long time no see, come, bottoms up.

Then fill up the cup.

Leader: How’s things lately? Come, bottoms up.

Then fill up the cup again.

Leader: What have you been doing lately? Come, bottoms up again.

Kyu Jong said he drink draft beer nowadays, about 500cc will be enough.

《SOS Please Save Me》SS501 Kim Kyu Jong transforms into a warm uniform guy

Repost with full credits.

Cable TV KBSN brand new Wed/Thur drama 《SOS Please Save Me》’s production team revealed a set of on-site photos of Kim Kyu Jong. Kim Kyu Jong (SS501’s member) acted as Park Jung Joon, transformed into a warm high school student.

《SOS Please Save Me》received much attention because of it’s straightforward plot. The role that Kim Kyu Jong cast as held definite power as he is the senior of the high school, always finding trouble with Kim Ji Hoo (by An Yong Jun), yet his masculinity charmed many girls, contributed also by the tall height of 1.82m and striking school uniform. Although he was such a bully when ordering Kim Ji Hoo around, but when he is in front of the girl he likes Kim Da Young (by Noh Haeng Ha), he immediately transforms into a detailed guy,  exceptionally thoughtful and meticulous.

《SOS Please Save Me》 airs every Wed/Thur at 11pm.


Kyu Jong…the rope, our rope ^^

22 May

Woah! You saw it?!! Something that we’ve been long awaiting for since don’t know when!

Subconsciously, I’ve been holding my breath and started waiting ever since our boys went solo on June 2010. But when Jung Min went to Taiwan and Japan couple of weeks back and said the boys will be going to his place for dinner, I held my breath even tighter, clench my fingers even harder and hope for the gathering and that they’ll share some beautiful pics. Then~ Young Saeng also mentioned on his recording on Happy Together 3 (episode with Shinhwa) that he is meeting the members for dinner after the recording (but did not specifically mentioned if it’s all members).

Yesterday night, our 3 boys met up at Jung Min Mummy’s restaurant for dinner (supper maybe?) and finally shared their loving moments with us! I realised I heaved a sigh of relief upon seeing Kyu Jong’s tweets and pics. It’s really a nice feeling^^ Though we were all anticipating a gathering of all 5, but 3 is just as good. We can’t be so greedy all the time. Take it slowly~

When Kyu Jong tweeted yesterday, I guess most Triple S went ‘AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Kyu Jong ah!!!!!!’ deep in their heart or maybe even scream out loud looking at their phone or monitor screen. kekekekeke yea, i’m also one of the one who went screaming silently too! Kyu Jong ah, our sweet Kyu Jong. Look what you have done to us Triple S^^

Come, let’s take a look at what our 3 sweet boys tweeted last night!

(first pic shared by Kyu Jong)

대박!! 형준이가 정민이가게에서 우리에게 밥을 샀어요 !! 이…놀라운.. 얼마만의 형준이가 우리에게.. ㅠ ㅎㅎㅎㅎ 담에는 형들도 불러야지잉 쭈니짱 ㅎㅎ

And kindly translated by @xiaochu1004 on twitter:

[@2kjdream twt trans] Daebak!! HyungJun treated us at JungMin’s shop!! This is..surprising.. how long was it that HyungJun last treated us.. ㅠ heeheeheehee must call the hyungs out next time too ♥ Jjuni jjang heehee

Then! This cute boy shared the second pic. Tada~!

love ya !! 유후~사랑하는 울아이들~~♥

And again, kindly translated by Xiaochu:

[Trans] love ya!! Yoohoo~ my dearest boys~~♥

And when all Triple S are rejoicing over their dinner date, Jun tweeted another pic!

오공일 합체직전의 모습. 커밍쑨~! 각오하여라~! 크로쓰~!!

Again, kindly translated by Xiaochu:

[@HyungJun87 twt trans] Image of 501 just before reunite. Coming soon~! Prepare for it~! Cross~!!

There! Jun’s word of ‘coming soon’ is so full of promises that really swept our feet of the ground yah?! Really a very ‘adventurous’ night for Triple S with them bombarding us with their tweets and pics! How does that feel seeing a 301 reunion? kekekekekeke I hope your heart can take it, and I jussssst managed to pull through, else you won’t be seeing this post now. LOL~ ok lame.

Hmmm just when I was about to hit the sack, then Jung Min tweeted! A more endearing pic I thought~ since we’ve always love the Tom and Jerry pair, I particularly like this pic because Baby’s head was resting on Mal’s shoulder and Kyu’s hands on Baby’s shoulders (oh I can grin until my face split into two!)

사진 늦었네~~!!탱탱한87젊은이들과 모여서~^^옹기종기!! 완전 늙은 꼬부랑이 86늙은이들은 담기회에 샴페인 쏘는거 확답 후 만나주는 걸로!!ㅋㅋ 준아~담엔 약속한 생일 주 쏴~~♥이러다 니 생일되겠다~~!

Last but not least, kindly translated by Xiaochu this morning:

[Revised @JungMin0403 twt trans, thanks to @HappyBoys_SS501] Photo is late~^^ Gathered with the taut and young 87ers~^^ huddling (together)!! Totally old and bent back with age 86ers, will meet with you next time when you give a definite answer to treat us champagne!! Keke Jun-ah~ You should treat us my birthday drink you promised next time. I’m afraid it may happen on your birthday~~!

Happy is an understatement, after all their tweets and pics. And I’m happy at the thought that another meet up will fall in place on Baby’s birthday! Excited much, I hope we get to see the 86ers and 87ers together, soon….

At the back of our head, we all knew there’s problems among them, that’s why we always don’t get to see all 5 together. Hyun Joong mentioned it before (sorry, i can’t recall if it’s in an interview or during his BD showcase), it’s true that he is contacting some members and not contacting others. I guess many Triple S were quite heart-broken hearing what he said. It’s a sad truth. But we hope and we know things can be sorted out, because they promised they will not disband, they will come back as five members on stage again. This we know and we believe strongly. That’s why we still call ourselves Triple S and waiting till now.

All this while, we see that Kyu Jong, being the center of the group, as always, he is the one pulling the members together, strongly. At times, I feel sad because it seem a heavy burden to shoulder, being the rope to keep the other boys in place. But I think this is picking up and improving, seeing now that Leader and Jun are playing soccer together, needless to say the awkward HyunSaeng couple are getting along fine and then our Tom and Jerry couple too.

Kyu Jong, though in the army and does not have as much free time since he is based in Jeonju, but despite being far away (at least about 3 hours of train ride from Seoul?) from the other 4 boys, he holds them together, a very strong rope that is tied around each boy and pulling them closer and closer and together. Kyu Jong ah, it has been hard on you, please stay strong no matter how! While we don’t know when will their reunion on stage be, I hope for more moments of them offstage. Going out for meals, playing games together. Just continue to stay true to their promises and I’ll be happy to wait on.

For the Best SS501, I just want to be your Triple S, only.

PS. To add, translators don’t work 24/7. Xiaochu is based in GMT+8 (Singapore time), if you’re on a different time zone, I think it is only polite to wait and not tweeting her to ask for trans in the middle of the night. If you are on same time zone, then you should be ashamed of yourself, cause you should know the day and the night. Bluntly, translators need to eat, sleep, shit, work and have their own time with their family and friends. They are not on standby 24/7, just because they can translate doesn’t mean they SHOULD translate too. Don’t take it for granted.

PPS. If you can’t wait, Google is everyone’s best friend. If you find the translations not up to par, well please, go learn the language yourself then.

Meet HIM Again….

7 Mar

Time flies real fast, without realising it, we have parted with Kyu for 228 days already. It seem just yesterday when we see him entering army.

The only explanation I can think of that we don’t feel that he is away from us is that we have him in our hearts, he is always there in our hearts so time and distance does not make any difference. Agree? Like a Chinese saying “小别胜新婚” or in English “absence makes the heart grow fonder”. This is how I am trying to think so that I won’t feel something amiss so badly. kekekeke

And today! Is the 228th day of Kyu in army and we are 501 days away from Kyu’s army release! YES! Just another 501 days and we will see a brand new suave and manly Kyu Jong!! So excited!!!!

Kyu Jong wants us to meet him again when he’s out from army! hehehehee. We definitely will welcome you back with open arms and buckets of tears too! Hahahaa

Meanwhile, please do take good care of yourself! We want to see a healthy and bright Kyu Jong everyday!!

Till then, we are Triple S!

2013 starts with these~

12 Jan

Just the beginning of the year and I’ve spent $300+ buying these :p

Jung Min’s Romeo single album, Kyu Jong’s Hestory calendar, Hyun Joong’s Japanese albums, calendars and diary.

I think this is the first time I bought so many things at one go. Gonna eat instant noodles for lunch n dinner till my next paycheck comes in. Hahahaha. But it’s ok, with all these things by my side, 2013 is gonna be a good one (hopefully)! :D

우리의 행운의 별, 규종이^^

4 Dec

규종이!!!! 저 남자 멋지지 않니?!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 진짜 많이 보고싶어 ㅠㅠ

Ain’t he looking awesome as he delivers a talk to the high school students on military administration? Really miss die me! >.<


This pic was shared on the Haeri High School’s official website on 27 November 2012. (Haeri High School)

And on the 30th November, this boy attended HaHa and Byul’s wedding too. Sweet boy^^ Since there’s no news pics of him, I shall just skip posting of fans’ pics of him heading for the wedding dinner~

And and yesterday, 3rd December, he attended another wedding too! G.Gorilla and Kim Joo Il’s wedding! (sorry but i duno who are them >.<) No pics but was on the news^^ Check it out! News

I duno why but I kept having this thought that our Kyu Jong is a lucky star, that’s why he received many wedding invitations. Hehehehehe

Hello! X 501

21 Nov

캬ㅑㅑㅑㅑㅑㅑㅑ!! This boy!!!! Sweet right?!! But he should write more often? Really miss die us!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Yesterday while online chatting with J언니, she wrote “Kyu wrote a letter” and i replied “B2M tweeted? I haven’t checked tweets today” and it kinda stopped there. We carried on talking about other things. Then about a couple more minutes later, i asked “how u know?” and she replied that her friend told her. Shortly after, she replied “B2M tweeted” and so I went to check my timeline and saw B2M’s tweet, so I translated and shared at @501wangja^^

So, quickly I opened Kyu Jong’s homepage and tried to log in. *slap self* i forgotten my password orz

I quickly checked out my records to find the password, and managed to log in to ThanKYU’s members page to see Kyu Jong’s letter. Again, orz can he write nicer next time huh? So difficult to read!!!!

I told J언니 that I only managed to make out a few lines of what he wrote, that’s it. Gave up…… but I know, or should I say we know someone will definitely do the translation without fail. You know right?! Kekeke yup yup it’s her >>>>> Xiaochu!! Despite busy at work, she still squeezed out time to read up the letter and post her translation HERE. 고마워 추! 

Kyu Jong is always so sweet n caring in his letters. Always thinking about people around him, and us – his Pretties^^ He is really one thoughtful guy and I do hope that in future he will find someone that really deserve him. I’m sure many Triple S (maybe not the newer or younger fans) will agree with me that we are all more than happy and actually very eager to hear that our boys have girlfriends or found their love, at least the group of Triple S friends that I knew all do hope and really hope that our boys get attached soon. Heheheehe. If one day there’s news that any of our boys finally is in a relationship, my group of Triple S friends will be clapping happily for them! Haha! Ok, i digress again… shucks, why do i always digress from my topic? >.<

Recently heard about something very nice that took place and it’s really sweet and nice to hear, and I have to thank my friend who is willing to share with me. I wish this kind of good thing will happen to me at least once during my span as a fan…. *prays hard* 규종아, 2014 기다릴께!!!
