JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong Visits Fan In Coma At Hospital And Offers To Cover Medical Fees


It has recently been revealed that JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong helped out a fan and her family in need.

On April 5, Thailand’s Daily News reported that the singer visited Rapiphorn Nasaarn, a fan from Thailand who was visiting Korea, at Yonsei University’s Severance Hospital and comforted her father.

The fan is said to have been visiting Korea when she suddenly suffered from cardiac arrest at a club in Hongdae on March 24. Though her heart stopped while she was being moved to the hospital, doctors managed to keep her alive through CPR. However, she is currently in a coma.

She is said to have been a fan of Kim Jaejoong since he was a member of TVXQ, and even attended his concert in Bangkok, Thailand in March. C-JeS Entertainment explained, “Kim Jaejoong returned to Korea on April 2 after the end of his Asia tour. He was notified of the fan’s current condition, and visited her on April 3. Hearing that the family was struggling to pay her medical fees, Kim Jaejoong donated 20 million won (approximately $17,700) to the family.”

His agency also added, “Kim Jaejoong notified us that he had made the donation to help pay for her medical fees, but did not specify an exact amount. He said he had given a small donation, and we later learned that it was 20 million won.”

We hope that Rapiphorn Nasaarn makes a full recovery.

Heechul talks about his royalty income for composing Orange Caramel’s ‘Shanghai Romance’

JTBC‘s ‘Ssul Jeon‘ discussed songwriters on November 7, which naturally brought up Heechul’s very own debut composition for Orange Caramel.

Heo Ji Woong said, “I really like Orange Caramel.  I heard that Heechul composed a song for Orange Caramel,” referring to the song “Shanghai Romance.”

Heechul revealed, “I’m close with the chief of Orange Caramel’s agency.  While we were drinking together, he made an offer.  I have a knack for this, as well.

He continued, “The royalties were quite good.  While in the army and when the song was doing well, I would receive over 3 million won (~ $2,800 USD) a month.

After reciting the lyrics of the song, Kim Gu Ra suggested they were immature: “You should have written something with depth–what is this?  You sure a kid just learning to write for the first time didn’t write this?

Heechul said, “In the second verse, I wrote parts like that.  After the chief read ‘I can only meet you if I rode a plane there, but as I have no money, I can neither go nor see you,’ he said, ‘It’s a different way of thinking.  I can sympathize,’ so I received the okay.

However, Heo Ji Woong said in surprise, “That’s worth 3 million won (~ $2,800 USD) in a month?

Heechul replied, “This is worth 30 billion won (~ $28 million USD).  This is not a joke–after writing this song, I got a few offers, but I couldn’t do them out of public interest,” making everyone laugh.
