JYP Nation wants to wish you a Merry Christmas

Standard

Artists of the JYP Nation family got together for the first time at the JYP House in order to film the music video for their Christmas carol album, “This Christmas.”  Fans will be able to see different sides to their favorite JYP artists as they laugh and play amongst each other in celebration of the upcoming holiday. Shall we see for ourselves?

Wooyoung & Jo Kwon

“Filming began at 5 AM! Not only the staff, but the JYP Nation artists as well were tired. Wooyoung and Jo Kwon helped liven the atmosphere with their cute antics and quickly became the ‘happy virus’ of the set. They went around to all of the different recording sets in order to share their strength and lend support.”

Interview Filming

“A lot of reporters came to the scene, as it’s the first time ever that JYP artists came together. We were able to see the hot interest everyone had, as they continually asked for interviews whenever any of the members had a free moment.”

Junho & Sohee Omok

“Junho’s ‘omok’ game received a lot of attention from everyone on set. Many were bickering over who got to play first and concentrated hard on beating each other at the game. Sohee didn’t show interest at first but soon fell to its charms.”

Beastly Idol

“It seems like not everyone can become a beastly 2PM member. Nichkhun worked out throughout the set, doing sit ups with a chair or walking around and doing push ups wherever there was room. It was obvious that his body was made with pure effort! Nichkhun! That’s enough!”

Choreography Practice

“The biggest happening of the day was none other than Park Jin Young’s spontaneous dancing!! He immediately came up with a choreography for the carol song right on the spot and discussed it with the director before deciding to include it in the MV. The members enjoyed learning the fun new dance.”

A lot of people

“There were so many people for the JYP Nation team that some had to wait outside because the set was too small. Although it was buzzing with noise, the minute the director stated that he was beginning to film, the set immediately hushed into a lull.”

Looking at the recorded film

“The director, being a humorous young guy, made sure to pay attention to every little aspect of the members he were filming. He made sure to communicate clearly and discuss everything thoroughly in order to have a satisfactory scene for both himself and the members.”

Long-term group

“Members went through a photoshoot before the MV filming officially began. Groups were divided into interest topics, but the most interesting of all was the “JYP Long-term Trainee” team. They’re the living history of the JYP company!”

Maknae Group

“Following the “long-term” group was the “maknae” group. We always thought Sohee would forever remain the baby of the company, but seeing Suzy following her around while calling out ‘unni unni‘ made us all realize just how much the JYP family has grown. ^^”

Group Picture

“It took longer than we thought to gather everyone for a group picture. They were all having so much fun that they didn’t even listen to instructions from the director and busily chatted amongst themselves. JYP Nation, fighting!!”

Here are some polaroid pictures of the JYP artists as a gift!

I thank the sky for being able to sing a carol song and even shoot a music video with our JYP family like this. I hope that these opportunities come up more. Not only Korea, but out into the world.. I can anticipate that, right? ^^

JOO
Singing a carol song for the first time with our JYP family was such a fun experience. I’m so excited for our first concert to be held on Christmas Eve. Other families must feel this way too, right? JYP Nation fighting!!!

Park Jin Young
This day has finally come. The family album and concert I’ve always dreamed of. Out of my entire celebrity career, I think today is the happiest day. I’ll make a lot of music to make sure that my kids are always happy and smiling like today. Children, fighting!!!^^
