Boy group JYJ is holding charity event for the victims of Japan.

On 5th April, a media from Japan reported, “At the time when Tohoku/Kanto had a huge earthquake disaster, JYJ, who felt sad about the damage and we donated 600 million won to World Vision which is an international relief organisation, is planning to organise a charity event to help victims of the earthquake.

Through their Japanese website, JYJ revealed the purpose of the event, “We wish to send courage to victims who suffered the calamity even though it isn’t much.”

For the sake of helping those victims, JYJ will be donating part of the appearance fees and profits from the ‘Charity Event to Support Victims of Tohoku/Kanto Great Earthquake Disaster’ event which will be held on the 7th June at Japan Saitama Super Arena .

Restrictions on JYJ’s Activities, Is that Really Poison?

Photobucket

The Bangkok, Thailand Concert that kicked off JYJ’s World Tour proceeded in enthusiasm that was much more heated than was expected. Around 22,000 fans visited the concert that was held over two days. One could not see the end of the footsteps of the Thailand’s citizens who wanted to see JYJ’s performances—from the Prime Minister of Thailand to Thailand’s celebrities and entertainers. It was almost enough to make one become confused as to whether this was actually JYJ, a group that has restrictions on their activities as artists.

JYJ is going through a dispute with its former agency SM Entertainment after having split off from TVXQ. It is true that due to this it has become difficult to find their stages in Korea. Each TV station’s music programs are mired in complicated understandings and relationships so that they are unable to easily put JYJ on stage. Currently, JYJ fans are seeing their members not on the stage but through dramas and musicals.

Particularly, because JYJ is restricted on its TV appearances, there is a limit to building awareness of their activities. Kim Junsu spoke his mind on the disappointment on that point before the concert in Thailand: “Even though the album itself is not even released officially in the United States, it became #5 in Billboard’s Album of the Year. Also, artists like Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins participated in the album but people who are not fans are unaware. We have pride in our album’s quality and its good songs but I feel regret that we are not able to show that in Korea.”

That is not all. JYJ’s reality program, which was planned to air on the cable channel QTV, repeatedly delayed itself and in the end the program itself became cancelled without a satisfactory explanation. Furthermore, the fans on their own opened an Internet Radio Station and pointed out the direction for the new fandom culture, but absurdly the entire staff announced its closing in four days to everyone’s shock. Indeed, JYJ is having one bad thing happen after another.

But Kim Junsu did not leave this out: “We think that this is a mountain to be climbed. I think we’ve all become more solid.”

In truth, JYJ, when they were TVXQ, was a group that gloried in (having) the highest level of popularity in Asia. They received the highest level of treatment and each TV station competed to cast them and JYJ performed their activities with the best staff. However, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu must have realized the value of everything that they had basked in the moment that they became JYJ from TVXQ.

For them who cannot sing on TV, the concert stage is the only place on which they can let fans hear their songs. This made the members again appreciate the value of the stage, something that they probably felt only during their debut years. This made JYJ train themselves so that they can sing perfect songs on a live stage that comes only once.

Furthermore, as much as their time of exposure by the media is small, JYJ came to bring themselves with care to each and every interview with the media. It was impossible for the members to not be concerned with how they would appear, not merely to JYJ fans but also to the former fans who have turned away and to those people who do not know JYJ. One affiliate, recalling an interview that JYJ had with a media entity, said: “I’ve never seen the members tremble like that.”

The fans, watching the hardship that JYJ endures in their activities, strengthened in their ability to unite and cohere. The disposition of the fans to themselves protect JYJ has deepened.

The JYJ Internet Radio Station, which had many troubles, was also an attempt in which the fans gathered by themselves to relieve the restrictions of the media activities by creating a JYJ-exclusive media. Furthermore, the reason for its closing is not, as some have relayed, that the administrator had suffered from threats from JYJ fans and so decided to close—this is false.

JYJ fans had wished that the Internet Radio station would aim for equity and fairness as do the regular media. However, contrary to the original goals, the staff used the copyrighted materials without permission, provided incorrect information about JYJ, made appear a female politician who had nothing to do with JYJ, and engaged in other problematic acts. At this, the JYJ fans worried that JYJ would be used politically and that the broadcast would become prejudiced, and in the end the staff announced its closing. The Internet Radio can be understood as an incident in which from its opening to its closing the fans’ voluntary will and self-purifying abilities were applied.

It is hard to guarantee when people will be able to see JYJ freely on Korean stages. However, what is clear is that because JYJ is going on live stages frequently due to their difficulties in domestic activities, they are in fact transforming into a more capable group. The fans also are uniting more.

In the Concert in Thailand, JYJ showed off their first live of the ‘Nameless Song part 1’ which expresses their current situation, and the audience applauded when it was over. It was an applause of encouragement that supported JYJ’s path.

The below is a translation of the blog entry posted by the 3hree Voices staff. It is currently deleted.

Actually, at first there was a plan to do a concert in Tokyo Dome in May. They were under the impression (T/N: literally, “believing”) that they could sing in Tokyo. JYJ is aiming for the future. To that future, let’s take the fans, and let’s appear in front of the fans after having heightened our levels from where we are today, let’s show (the fans) that we are sweating for that end… To JYJ who was working for that, suddenly the news of the cessation of the Tokyo concert reached them. Tokyo Dome had gone into smoke because of the pressures of A. Co. This happened in the middle of filming vigorously for a DVD by JYJ  (T/N: the title of the DVD has been omitted to protect the blog writer.) To them, how big of a shock it had been….

As you know, JYJ’s Japanese management company A. Co. announced last September that they are unilaterally putting a halt to JYJ’s Japanese activities. This, wasn’t this supposed to mean that they were going to leave alone JYJ’s management—that is, that JYJ should go off and do their own thing by themselves?

While that was happening, JYJ rose up when the tremendous earthquakes struck Japan. I was moved by their sincerity. We received a great courage and love. I wrote about this in my blog, too.

They are young, yet they made a large donation of 600 million KRW. In truth, though, that is not all. I was contacted by someone who is extremely close to JYJ—he asked me to look into how one could donate and where, because JYJ wanted to give as individuals. I pointed them to the website of Japan Red Cross. I heard that JYJ gave a large amount to (the Red Cross) as well. I can feel their heart for Japan. This incident is true—I was involved in it.

Is it now impossible for JYJ to sing in Japan in the future?

Is “singing” really that difficult of a thing to do?

They are not even canaries who have forgotten how to sing—they are canaries who are forbidden to sing… how tragic is this.

While this (was going on), a government agency suggested to JYJ an idea of a relief concert.

You have no idea how happy JYJ and C-JeS was (at that news).

We can now sing in front of Japan’s fans! But, JYJ presented (to the government agency) a condition—they wanted to donate all proceeds minus expenses.

Their heart was that they wanted to help in Japan’s revival through their singing.

That is the concert in Yokohama Arena on June 7th—the one that was announced in Daily News and others. But, as you all know, to that too, interferences by A. Co. comes in. Not only was the article taken down, the people from Yokohama Arena also gave up, that they won’t do it.

To stop this relief concert—this also means that one cannot send contributions to the damaged areas. Who has the right to interfere with a concert of good-will? This means that a large amount of contributions is to disappear. This means that the reconstruction of the damaged areas is delayed.

And, Saitama Super Arena makes a decision. That they won’t bend to A. Co.’s pressures—they told them in straightforward words. They have stepped up not merely for JYJ but for the restoration of the damaged areas.

We absolutely need to make this relief concert successful.

If it cannot be allowed that JYJ sing here, it might be that they can never sing in Japan again. Their activities put to a halt when the contract is not terminated… that is, it is a plan that (A. Co.) will not leave JYJ to sing in Japan.

Will it be okay to let alone this tyranny?

I will absolutely not let them interfere. This time, the fans need to stand up.

I wrote that—JYJ, they will without a doubt come for us, even if they have to swim across the ocean. I wrote—let’s absolutely trust them.

For them, this is not a simple matter. A tremendous invisible wall is blocking them. JYJ is trying their hardest to climb over that wall, in any way they can.

One day, the day will come when anyone can freely listen to them sing live. This is the first step for that day to come.

(T/N: Please note  not to mention the name of the DVD or who company A is. We do not want to get the blog writer into any possible trouble.  -inhye87-)
