Anonymous sent: why did jaejoong leave cojjee??
As far as I know, nobody is sure! I assume it may have had to do with the fact that his other investor is buying the salon that shares the building and he bought Jaejoong out of his shares in order to have full control of the business? Or Jaejoong could have left simply because he wanted to establish a new cafe brand on his own.
Your guess is as good as mine!

Anonymous sent: Who were the most popular member in TVXQ pre-split and what about now?
Pre-split during their peak (2009), according to their official fan cafe numbers [daum/naver]:
There have also been several other sizable fancafes crop up over the years (not to mention the thousands of unaccounted fans who aren’t official members of any fancafe). So take the order above with a grain of salt.
Ordering them by popularity post-split is even harder to fully back up due to an increasing number of international fans. Their rankings are also dependent on the region you take into account (i.e. Jaejoong would rank first in Japan while Junsu would do the same in Korea, and Yoochun is generally the most popular in South American countries). But overall, I’d still say their popularity ranking is the about the same as it was pre-split.
Anonymous sent: Which members do/used to smoke? When did they quit (and why if you know). This blog is amazing btw.
Thank you!! ^^
Currently, the only members who smoke are Jaejoong, Yunho, and Yoochun. Changmin did briefly in 2010 before quitting and Junsu has never.
Yoochun has quit about three times that I know of—once predebut at SME’s request, again a few years into debut, and again a few years after that.
Yunho has smoked off and on since before he debuted, so he’s quit a bunch of times. I don’t know that he’s as addicted to it as Yoochun seems to be, and he seems to be more of a stress-smoker since most of the times he’s started has been around the beginning of Korean promotions.
Jaejoong, to my knowledge, has never quit and is more of a recreational smoker.
Changmin quit towards the middle/end of 2010, most likely out of concern for his health (whereas Yunho and Yoochun we likely because of their voices/physical condition).
Anonymous sent: In the song 'Just the Two of Us ft Tohoshinki' Yoochun sang the english part right? Could you temme who sang the japanese part(similar as yoochuns) Was it changmin?
I’ve been listening to this part a dozen times and I’m not entirely sure, honestly. The first stanza and parts of the second sound like Changmin but most people hear Junsu.
Anonymous sent: Which members are right/left handed?
Jaejoong and Changmin are right-handed. Yunho, Yoochun, and Junsu were born left-handed but are now ambidextrous.

Anonymous sent: Hi hi. Is it true that Junsu wrote "White Lies" for his deceased girlfriend? /watch?v=PGcZ4Q6t2fI I got surprised after reading the comments, I've never heard anything like it before.
Nope, those comments saying that Junsu “lost” his girlfriend refer to their breakup. The song was written for his ex-girlfriend that he mentioned in Come On Over. The two separated because of Junsu’s popularity and packed schedule. The song’s lyrics express his regret he has for not being able to make time for her in his situation.
Anonymous sent: Not long ago Changmin was playing E-Guitar on stage. I've only seen pictures, though, and I can't remember the event. What song was it and are there fancams?
Should be his solo stage at the Nissan stop of their TIME Tour, Rock With You?

If this is a question, then we have no way of knowing if they do or not.
If this is something you’re telling us, then that is a rumor that has never been confirmed.
Anonymous sent: Two questions! Firstly, are there any eng subs for "Fly with the Gold". I have been looking and probably there isn't but it wouldn't hurt to ask. Secondly, do you know any place i could watch TVXQ's Running Man appearances with eng subs?
[Fly With The Gold]. The link provides the movie download with English soft subs and a tutorial to use them.
For streaming Running Man: [Ep. 27] [Ep. 115]

Anonymous sent: is it true that Junsu wants to marry a foreign girl? didn't he say when he was in france he saw little blonde girls calling "papa" and that that made him dream of interracial marriage? what do you think about that? could it work for him?
Junsu said that he’s open to the idea of interracial marriage during MTV K’s JYJ Secret Show interview. This is a very subjective opinion, but I agree with fc-men’s answer to the same question [here].
Junsu enjoys learning about other cultures and has also openly acknowledged people to be attractive regardless of ethnicity (or any other biased criteria, for that matter). But at the same time, I can’t see him marrying someone of non-Korean descent. The hindering obstacle I see is a clash of traditional values. Living together in a married setting comes with a whole new set of sacrifices than being friends with someone with culturally different ideals and ethics than you. Junsu has an immense sense of respect for traditional Korean values when it comes to family. And it might be very difficult for someone like him to make the required cultural sacrifices in an interracial marriage and remain content with his life.
