Jaejoong expresses his feelings for Keita

What is Boys Pop Factory? It’s a yearly event that has some of the hottest male singers in J-Pop today and part of that was close friends Keita (w-inds.) and Jaejoong along with Yoochun (TVXQ). There were other artists but I’m only touching base with these three. As to why Ryo and Ryuichi of w-inds. wasn’t there, I do not know; but I’m sad and at the same time, w-inds. has become just Keita, so it’s not like they were really missing anyone.

Keita performed 4 songs, two of which were w-inds. songs, “Everyday” and “Kirei da“. The other two were performed with Sakazaki Kounosuke.

Jaejoong and Yoochun sang “Been so long” by m-flo, “Begin“, “Rainy Blue” and “COLORS~Melody and Harmony~” with Sakazaki Kounosuke.

When Jaejoong and Yoochun spoke of Keita during their MC. Stating, “I’m close friends with Keita!” and that they “…go karaoke together and sing 20 songs”, and noted that “…maybe that’s why Keita got sick…?!“.

Yoochun replied in a surpsing manner, “Keita doesn’t drink sake!?

Nope, he doesn’t.”  Then he continues listing stuff they did, “we went to Tokyo Tower together“.  Jaejoong describes,  “Keita’s a very unique friend; one of a kind in Japan“; supposedly Jaejoong was ‘laying his feelings down on the stage and looking very happy‘.

It was known earlier from Keita, that he is very close friends with Jaejoong. So close that even during rehearsal and in the dressing room, those two were two peas in a pod.

Now if only GD was back in Japan, I bet he’d be stuck on GD too. Oh well, one can only hope that if that does happen it’s Keita going to Korea and not GD back in Japan.

Check out Jae and Yoo at Boys Pop Factory night.

Although I’m not a fan of TVXQ, listening to these makes me want to listen to Lead‘s live all over again. Something about Jae’s voice or the way he sings, makes me want to poke my eyes out.

Jae and Yoo on m-flo


Members Jae Joong and Yoochun of DBSK will be on the rise as they get to participate in a tribute album to one of Japan’s top hip hop groups, m-flo. Jae and Yoo will also be performing at the “BOYS POP FACTORY ’09” at ZEPP TOKYO in Odaiba.

The album is set to release 9/16. m-flo has been going strong for 10 years and finally get their own tribute album!

Other artists include, BENI, misono, Aoyama Thelma, and Shimizu Shota. I expect this album to be a good one because they actually have a pretty good line-up. The Judy and Mary tribute album was good, so here’s hoping this one is too!
