Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all been having a great summer so far.

Unfortunately, the summer is nearing its end and after much thought and consideration, I’ve decided to bring somewhat significant changes to withJYJ.

I never meant “withJYJ” to be a permanent site. I knew starting this fall, there would be a major change in my life and I would become extremely busy. I therefore started the blog earlier this year largely to promote JYJ’s upcoming world tour. I wanted to help foreign fans receive news about JYJ and encourage more to attend their concert to experience for themselves how talented and special Jaejoong, Yuchun, and Junsu are.

The World Tour has now officially ended and a decision had to be made. For a while I considered closing down the site completely, but I felt that would be inconsiderate for those that showed so much support in what I was doing… However, I also knew that it would be impractical to assume that I would be able to keep running the blog at the current pace.

After much deliberation, I’ve decided to keep the blog runnning with some important changes.

Starting today, the blog will transform into my “personal” blog. This doesn’t mean “withJYJ” will become a site for my personal random rambles. The blog will remain dedicated to JYJ and I will only upload JYJ-related posts (including translations). However, I will be a bit more “selective” in what I choose to upload. Because of the time constraints I will soon be facing, I will no longer feel obligated to upload ever single news/photo taken. In short, I will only upload news/pictures/videos/etc. that make me so excited that I have to “run with it” and express my love for JYJ. ^^; Furthermore, because withJYJ will become a “personal” blog, I will be a bit more “free” in what I choose to say. You can assume that my “filter” has become a bit less selective and I will be less restricted in expressing my personal opinions. Finally, because of such changes, certain posts will be marked “DO NOT RE-UP/MOVE THIS POST.” You will be free to share the link of such posts, but please refrain from re-uploading the post on other sites, such as other wordpress blogs.

I felt the changes I listed above were necessary to keep the blog running. What will remain unchanged, however, is my love and support for JYJ. :)

Because after all, “in the end, it’s JYJ!!”

그래, 결국은 JYJ!!!!!!!!

JYJ’s member and actor Park Yuchun (25) stated he “does not put too much weight” on the frequent cancellation of [his appearances] on entertainment programs.

Park Yuchun participated in the new MBC Mon-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley’s” press conference held on the morning of the 17th at Seoul JangChoong-dong Banyan Tree hotel.

“Miss Ripley” is about a woman, sick of her life at the bottom [of society], that lies to grab an opportunity and the completely new life and destruction that begins as a result.

In the drama, Park Yuchun plays Song Yoohyun (Yutaka), who dreams of success through his own values, and passionately acts out the heir of the resort who feels true love towards Jang Miri (Lee Dahae), a character that approaches [him] for her own success.

Park Yuchun, who is trying his second challenge as an actor through “Miss Ripley” after his success in his first drama “SKK Scandal,” probably has twice the pressure and twice the determination. For that reason, he must make his bid in terms of acting and promoting. However, unlike other stars, Park Yuchun cannot use entertainment programs on national broadcasting networks as a promotional medium.

Yuchun’s appearance on entertainment program was non-existent as [a member of] JYJ and even as “Miss Ripley’s” lead actor. It was partially because of a busy filming schedule, but it’s true that some have viewed it to be because Yuchun is “JYJ” that he can’t appear on such programs. (more…)

After the Court’s ruling partially in favor of the Jaejoong, Yuchun and Junsu’s application of provisional injunction, Avex, JYJ’s management company in Japan, demanded that the three members accept conditions that were unilaterally favorable to Avex during the discussion about a new contract. The three members, now free from SM’s influence, refused this offer. In response to this rupture of negotiations between the two parties, Avex announced ‘suspension’ of existing contract with Jaejoong, Yuchun, and Junsu in September 2010.

The below statement is the official statement from the three members, Jaejoong, Yuchun, and Junsu after Avex’s announcement of suspension of the contract. From this statement, it is revealed that Jaejong, Yuchun, and Junsu carried out schedules set by Avex, such as Thanksgiving Live in Dome, A-nation, “素直になれなくて”(Sunaoninarenakute, Jaejoong), single album ‘XIAH’ (Junsu), “Beautiful Love” (Yuchun), and many others in order to fulfill the contract and keep the promise with the fans without a complaint.

(Please let us know if you have a problem to see the below image.)

In the world of Japanese show business, it is rare to see an entertainer change the management company because of the negative influence it has on the celebrities’ reputation. Avex took advantage of this rather peculiar cultural custom to bind the members to Avex by ‘suspending’ rather than ‘canceling’ the existing contract. This blocks JYJ from signing a new contract with a different management company, and in result, practically suspends members’ activities in Japan completely.

Even after the announcement of suspension of activities, Avex has not only been working thoroughly to weaken the three members’ position in Japan by controlling the media to shape public opinion, but also have been reaping profits from the loyal fan base by steadily releasing products using three members creative works. Recent examples of Avex’s such endeavors include the exclusion of DVD sales from the Oricon Chart and its interference in the charity concert event in Japan.

This new, and rather eccentric strategy of excluding the sale of an official DVD that contain the three members’ activities from 2010 from the Oricon charts that Avex has adopted catches two birds with one stone. Not only does the announcement released by Oricon Chart damage the three members’ public reputation by creating an atmosphere that the three members are having time for self-reflection after having done something wrong, but it also creates profit, as the loyal Japanese fan base could never turn their eyes away from a new product because the fans need to ‘show’ others that the three members’ popularity is still going strong in Japan. In addition, since there will be no official record of the DVD sales volume, Avex is the only source of such information, and for that reason, it is unclear if the members will ever get their rightful share of the earnings from the DVD release.

Also, as seen from the controversy regarding the charity concert event in Saitama, we could see that Avex constantly is on the lookout for any sign of public sentiment favorable to JYJ building up in Japan. By creating bad press, Avex continues to damage the three members’ reputation, while the representatives of the company are feeding the Japanese fans the false hope of seeing the five members together as Tohoshinki in Japan via unofficial and meaningless tweets on Twitter. (*Author’s Note: I say false hope because judging from Avex’s actions in dealing with the three members’ situation, it seems clear that Avex does not have any intention of resuming business with JYJ. Avex would have used all its resources to prevent any damages to JYJ’s reputation if there was any possibility of JYJ singing under Avex’s label again. Anyone with right sense in his/her mind surely would have realized this, since that was not the first time these two individuals have babbled gibberish, or simply put, bull****, about the members to make up lame excuses for their own company and play victim.) Moreover, Avex Group Holdings Inc. is also under suspicion of directly interfering with the event itself by influencing enterprises related to carrying out this event.

What is most frustrating is that the suspension of activities by Avex, the cause of all these unfair treatments that JYJ suffers from, does not even have reasonable grounds. The reasons for Avex’s suspension of Jaejoong, Yuchun, and Junsu cannot be justified:

1) Personal history of C-JeS’s CEO is irrelevant to the terms of contract between Avex and the three members.

2) Even if that was a problem due to its business ethics policies, there are evidences which shows that Avex already had known about the CEO’s background before the three started their activities as an unit under Avex. Thus, the contract should have been canceled, not suspended as the cause for the breach of contract falls on Avex, not JYJ. 

3) The three members faithfully carried out all that was required of them on the contract. (There’s  no breach of contract on JYJ’s part)

Moreover, Avex’s insistence that the contract between Avex and the five members under SM Entertainment is still valid but the contract is suspended only for the three members due to the recent developments from the lawsuit is out of reason.

Considering that the two parties were discussing cancellation of contract, unilaterally announcing a suspension of the existing contract rather than canceling it can only be interpreted as a strategic maneuver on Avex’s part to block the three members from moving on to a rival management companies in Japan, as Avex is fully aware of the three members’ potential for success in the Japanese market. This clearly is Avex’s abuse and exploitation of the three members that is no different from what SM has been doing in Korea: treating the three members merely as a commodity and taking all the measures necessary to block the three members from moving forward when the members refuse to be taken advantage of.

Avex and SM, the two big powers in the entertainment industry in Japan and Korea, continue to hinder JYJ from resuming their entertainment activities in an attempt to monopolize the market. This attempt at exclusion of JYJ from the entertainment industry once and for all not only affects JYJ. It could also be expanded to pose a dangerous threat to fundamental rights of all Korean artists and entertainers and the preservation of quality of Korean popular culture overall, and must be put to an end.
