  1. i wonder if people would know JC better as a former member of NSYNC? haha.

    also, i just found out that jaejoong of dong bang shin ki / tohoshinki is a domestic Korean adoptee! which is rather intriguing…

  2. haha yes Juli, I know that as well, but I chose to affiliate him with a “project” that I’m selfishly more interested in…

  3. Thanks – I stumbled across this and will be helpful with my workshop for teens who were adopted/in the foster care system!
