161023 CrossGene.Asia Newsletter / Update #11

Cross GeneNewsletter

On behalf of CrossGene.Asia, we would like to express our profound gratitude to those who made Shin’s birthday special [Summer: Nothing less for a perfect human being.]

As you can see below, your letters sent through @perfectgene have been safely delivered! We are honestly amazed by the efforts you CandYs have put in!  You can check Shin’s tweets in their Korean and Japanese accounts and see the letters tied with a yellow bow just in front of him!

Given what CandYs can do, other fansites have expressed plans for the other members’ birthdays next year!

For Casper:

For Takuya:

For Yongseok:

There is also one for Lee Seyoung [X: The whereabouts of the said tweet is still unknown, please bear with us. | Purple: I’m on it, Sir. | Zen: Atta, Major Purple.] Yep, found!

We are still waiting for Minnie fansites to release birthday plans for him but we still have night months to prepare for that.

More exciting news for you thirsty ladies. Cross Gene has performed in Busan One Asia Festival. They had a small, private concert for their fans and you can see some media coverage here:

Please don’t forget to leave comments in these articles because it can also help boost their popularity. Once Korean media become aware that there are fans out there clamoring for more Cross Gene news, they are going to start paying more attention. #DoitforCrossGene

Also, fansites have started uploading Cross Gene goodies in Twitter and their official websites [X: Some of Takuya’s are here.] so you can expect more updates in CGfA as well.

We are also pretty sure that you didn’t miss their official Twitter updates for BOF!

For those who are clamoring to get a chance to meet our boys and have them in one small bus, then you just need to #DoitforCrossGene .

Takuya is doing well in Japan it seems and the people in Black Butler Noah’s Arc seem to dote on him. Look at these updates!

Our dear Seyoungie slayed our hearts once again with this cuuuuute photo of him for Daum Cafe update!

[SEYOUNG] 161017 Official Twitter Update

If you haven’t been slayed enough by Yongseokkie holding a melon and an eggplant, don’t worry, he’s got it covered for you.

We started the updates with Shin and we’re going to end it with Shin! Here are some snaps of him reading scripts with Jun Ji Hyun, Lee Min Ho and the rest of the cast of Legend of the Blue Seas. 

He also has another shot / Twitter update this time with Yongseok who is obviously happy for their leader.

and Takuya, despite his busy schedule, managed to squeeze in a little birthday greeting for Shin on his egg. [Zen: Why does that sound a little…| Purple: X language. |Summer: Am I reading what I am reading? | Chibi: Let’s talk, eXie.]

Thank you once again for celebrating #PerfectShinDay with us! Tune in for more updates!

We have a lot of updates for everyone today. First question though, what’s with Cross Gene and food? ^_^ All we know is, our favorite boys are indeed listening to us and reading our sweet letters. Those who have been so worried about their health and whether they eat enough or get enough rest, ought to be so satisfied after seeing numerous updates from our boys!

KING of INSTAGRAM, Casper, has the most number of updates this week. It seems that he is quite serious in keeping the title and he’s taking good care of himself as well. Look at that much food he eats ^_^ and how often he goes out with his friends.

Yongseok as it turns out is going to have another musical soon! It is amazing when the boys get recognized for what they do best.

We know that many of you are excited and willing to share Sangmin’s photos in Instagram. However, he has kept it private for a good reason. Please respect his privacy by not sharing his photos ^_^ but you can definitely request him to approve your follow request in Instagram.  Isn’t that more satisfying?

Welcome back to another round of CrossGene.Asia Updates!

Can someone ban Cross Gene BED HAIRSTYLES? CandYs in the Twitter TLINE have been raving about Shin and Takuya’s bed hairs… and it doesn’t stop there! Our Leader also sports VEGETA-Hairstyle! [X: He’s screaming O.T.A.K.U. | Zen: I don’t mind | Summer: HE’S PERFECT] Cross Gene members are known to have epic hairstyles. Do you guys remember Sangmin’s PWM hair? or Casper’s blonde one in GAME promotions? Of course brown-haired Seyoung always slays and Yongseok’s red hair still makes us swoon. But Bed Hair is different. [CandY: TT^TT]


Have you seen Sangmin’s adorable videos? One of them is right here:

SANGMIN’s Minmin Summer Holiday Video: Let’s Make Shaved Ice!

Isn’t he totally adorable?! [Zen: Who’s X are you now again? | X: Sangmin’s…I mean Takuya.] That is not all. He has been slaying us with his photos this week! Care to guess whose hand that is? Many from the TLINE think it’s Seyoungie. ^_^


Ticket sales for his birthday celebration on September 3rd have already started so get yours N.O.W.

You can check out these other video links for Sangmin Goodies [X: Thanks, Purple Tanya for the links!]


We would like to remind everyone that the deadline for your letters for our dear Organic Gene is on September 1st. [X: If not, dear Rabia-chan? | Rabia : You’ll know what stress means.]

That is not all that you have to look forward to on September 1st! Remember that our fierce oppa, Casper, has promised something special on that day too! So keep on the look out for that surprise!

Casper also has stolen a number of fans’ hearts this week! Have you seen his Instagram update? You better not miss it! Here it is!

Not only that. He is also rubbing elbows with great people in the industry. Isn’t he charming?

Takuya on the otherhand is still quite busy with his activities including OGN! Please continue supporting our Gorgeous Gene!

He is also in YOUPAPER Magazine Volume 81 following our Leader Shin! ^_^

Meanwhile, a number of SeSeok fans are waiting for updates from their favorite boys. We know, mina-san, we know. We miss them too. But let’ s cheer up with the thought that they are resting well and preparing for their next comeback this year. *_*

and by the way, have an elephant from Seyoungie ^_^

We would like to thank everyone who have participated in sending our dear leader love in his FM YOKOHAMA blog. We are looking forward to your participation again, in the next ChuusDAY.  For more fan activities, we would like to make a happy announcement that our affiliation, XGENE Nation has released the translated BURN UP Interview! Bless the team. However, one note you all have to remember: Xgene Nation does not allow retranslation of their work. However, they encourage everyone to use their ChuusDAY translations.  Kindly contact them for more queries. You can find the interview here:

For the new Cross Gene stans, welcome! We all know that you have your biases, we have ours too! But you have to bear in mind that discrimination against any member of Cross Gene is a violation of what they actually want us to do [X: Watch ZEDD ^_^| Zen: Music is Life] Every member loves his team member, and loves CROSS GENE so saying you only love Shin or Takuya means you don’t love them at all. [Zen: Those are the biggest fans of Cross Gene you know.| X: Including Casper, Seyoung, Yongseok, and Sangmin.]

While waiting for Cross Gene, better watch this:

Here’s another round of CrossGene.Asia’s Newsletter/Update.

Just when we thought that Cross Gene was having a vacation before their next comeback latter part this year, they proved us wrong–yet again.

The much awaited announcement for Sangmin’s birthday celebration has been announced! Finally! Bet many Sangmin fans are on the edge of their seats waiting for more details about it.

and here’s a translation from XGENE Nation:

You can also check other details regarding Sangmin’s Min Min Summer Vacation here:

Please be reminded that our dear Master Gene is still waiting for your lovely letters. Kindly contact her through @rabbit_1903 in Twitter.

Shin is featured in Happy Marriage! Yes, you read it right. And it seems that his acting career is on a roll. He is also going to act side by side Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun in the new drama The Legend of the Blue Sea. Find out more about Shin’s new drama here:

Also, he has thanked CandYs for the lovely support and messages in his FM Yokohama blog! Well done CandYs! We do hope for your consistent performance because we don’t need any other reason to love Shin, do we? ^-^


Casper announced in his official Instagram account that they are preparing something special for Sept 1st! That is something to look forward to aside from the beginning of classes! 😂

If you haven’t seen Yongseok’s update with his nephew on his shoulders, then you have missed how adorable he looked.

You can also find Seokkie lurking in Lee Jae Hun’s Instagram:


Takuya is adorable as always in this OGN video:

You hardly need to be reminded that he is gorgeous, don’t you? It’s all what they say, but let’s go beyond that and dig deeper because the Takuya we know here in Cross Gene Asia is the member who constant promotes his group whichever program he gets to attend. So when you say, you love Takuya, love Cross Gene too.

We don’t have news about Seyoung-shi, but we are quite sure that CandYs won’t mind looking at his videos in Youtube, Daum and Official JP site.

We know that most of us are already excited for their Korean comeback but we can do loads of things while waiting for them.

  • First, be involved in promoting Cross Gene’s Ying Yang in your local radio stations. The more of you tweeting the stations the better!
  • Second, you can still watch their music videos and help increase view count! Wouldn’t that be better than just saying ‘Stan Cross Gene’?
  • Third, ask more CandYs to join us! You can go to and check out our active members who will do anything for CG.
  • Fourth, communicate with your local Fanbase and ask them what plans hey have in promoting Cross Gene and HELP.
  • Fifth, register in their official sites, including DAUM!

Stay vigilant everyone.
