Excerpt from JYJ's interview in Marie Claire KR Aug 2014 issue (2)
1. Q. Anyhow, that is a long time. There are many names to friendships. What kind of friends are you to each other?
Yuchun "There is no right word that could describe us. Before, it was just a friend and a family. There were few words that came to my mind, but now, the meaning of those words just seems pointless. There is just no need for it."
Junsu "We depend on each other more and grow closer together when we are going through hard times, rather than being together only in good times."
2. Yuchun "I don't know what happiness is, but I really want three of us to keep doing well. It would be great if became more successful and made a lot of money, but I think about how strong our relationship would be if three of us could just have a smile on our faces simply by seeing each other's faces. Of course, JYJ activities are very important and I would like to keep doing it. But I hope we do it because we think alike, because we are so happy when we are together, and because we think it would be great to do something like this when we listen to a song on radio. Things we could do because it makes each other happy. We don't know what great things we would be or what lies ahead in our future. Even if we don't get the leading roles when we are forty years-old, and we could only afford to do 10 shows when we did 30 shows in the past, I would be happy if we were happy just for the sake of doing it. It would be great if we were successful, but that's not what is important."
3. Yuchun "People tell me to widen the social circle a little since the types of people I meet are limited. But it doesn't matter how many people I meet. I have these two [Jaejoong and Junsu] as my security. Jaejoong hyung and Junsu. These two will always be there for me, and that's enough. What would I be afraid of or worried about when I have assets like these two?”
Junsu "It's hard enough to make just one [friend like this]" (laughs)
Jaejoong "It's like a security deposit." (laughs)
