JYJ Fans place a protest AD in the newspaper, satirizing interferences in JYJ’s activities on TV
(Seoul=Yonhap News) Report by Goeun YUN
Fans of JYJ (Jaejoong/Yuchun/Junsu) from TVXQ placed a full-page advertisement in free newspaper [Metro], titled ‘Who wants to sing on TV? You?’. It satirizes the reality that JYJ has been excluded from broadcast media including music/entertainment programs. The publication of the advertisement was mainly led by DNBN(TVXQ’s fan-site) and it is in the form of advertisement for a hypothetical book named ‘101 Ways to Drive JYJ Out of Media’.
Staff from DNBN commented that “JYJ has been excluded from almost every entertainment program on broadcast media. As fans supporting JYJ, we’ll keep informing the public about current unfair situation and calling for remedy.”
JYJ is currently in the dispute with SM Entertainment, former management company, over their exclusive contract. Because of this, they have not been able to appear on TV except on news programs and dramas produced by subcontracting. Broadcasting companies say “We regulate appearances of artists who have controversial issues.”
“We are planning to print more advertisements (more than twice) regarding the protest and criticism for the reality that JYJ is hindered in their free activities. We raised 20,000,000 KRW of funds to do this during two-weeks period in March.” said DNBN.
