[TRANS] 150827 [JYJ Facebook] Yoochun’s Farewell Message

Hello. It’s Yoochun.

By the time this post goes up, I’ll probably be at the army training camp already, right? Um.. Do you mind if I drop the honorific tone? [T/N: He starts to use the ‘informal’ tone, which is commonly used amongst friends] Since we’ve known each other for so long~^^

Um. Before entering the training camp, I hadn’t put that much thought into the fact that I was going to the army. It only started to hit me when I was doing photoshoots and interviews, when I started to think ‘Oh, I’m going to the army, I’m not going to be working for a while… I’ve never taken a break from work for this long…’ For a while, I knew that I would have to fulfil my enlistment duties around this time. Though that time has come, I don’t think it’s really sunken in yet. I’ve decided not to have any regrets before I go. I heard that many fans wanted to ask me what I regret the most before I enlist, but I think it will be better for me to focus on the things I’m grateful for, rather than the things I regret because you can never go back in time to fix those regrets. I’m lucky to have gotten so much love, and to have been happy with the work I do. I’m so thankful ^^

I wanted you to know that although I’m not great at expressing myself and I’m a man of few words, my heart’s always understood and felt everything (between us). Thank you so much.

Now, I’m going to answer some of your questions. I’ve chosen a few from the questions you’ve sent me. What if I hadn’t been a celebrity? I think I would have become a lyricist, or maybe a writer…? Hm.. I think so, yes. A lot of you asked me what kind of food I’ll miss when I’m in the training camp, and Jaejoong told me that whatever you eat while you’re there will taste delicious. I don’t think I’ll miss a certain dish or anything while I’m there.. Regarding the question about what production I want to work on when I get back from the military, hm.. I had a drink with (Seol) Kyung Gu recently, and I told him that I really want to film a movie with him when I get back. I really want to work with him because he’s an actor I have so much to learn from, and he’s always been so warm and kind to me. The person I’ll miss most will always be my father. I’ve never stopped missing him because the older I get and the more responsibilities I have, the more I want to meet with him and ask him questions, but he’s not here. The assignment I leave for my fans while I’m gone is health and happiness! I want to learn Chinese and I want to read a lot of books.

Now, I think I’ve answered enough questions, right..? Our Jaejoong… he said he wanted to apply for leave and see my face for the last time before I go, but we ended up just talking on the phone. I want to tell him how proud I am of him, and Junsu, my member and friend who I really like, I know you’ll feel lonely by yourself but be strong and keep going.

Our fans, thank you so much and with your support, I’ll return safely. It was great seeing you yesterday, the day before my enlistment, as I was filled with both a sense of calmness and anticipation. It’s nice because I’ll be able to meet new people and experience new things. Although we won’t be able to see each other for a bit, no, a while, I hope we’re able to enjoy this time apart and meet again just a little more mature. Goodbye~~~~~~~~~!!!! ^^

Max Changmin’s ‘Apology’ is a PB R&B track that draws on the pain of a break-up, and was a collaboration between The Underdogs and Deez.

Yoo Young Jin’s ‘You’re Mine (Top of the World)’ is a song about TVXQ and their fans supporting and caring for each other, Jamie Jones’s ‘Everyday It Rains’ is a sophisticated mid-tempo R&B track, while ‘Vertigo’ is about a man falling for a femme fatale.

Other tracks include ‘Smile’, which is supposed to be a proposal to a man’s girlfriend and a promise to make them smile everyday, ‘Dominus’, a sophisticated R&B track that captivates with its intense melody, and ‘Lucky Star’, a mid-tempo song that tells someone that a person will become their star to light the way.

The music videos for U-Know Yunho’s ‘Champagne’ and Max Changmin’s ‘Rise as One’ will be released on the SMTOWN YouTube channel and TVXQ’s official homepage in the afternoon.
