Note: Korea summer is from June to August.
The group is working for the songs to release the new album in 2 years after Jaejoong, Yuchun and Junsu have focused on individual activities since its album <In Heaven> in 2011.
The three achieved remarkable performance in their individual activities last year. Jaejoong Kim showed his presence by his drama <Dr. Jin>, film <Code Name : Jackal> and the 1st solo album < I >. Yuchun Park swept end-of-year drama awards with his drama <Rooftop Prince> and <I Miss You>. Junsu Kim also won the Best Actor for a Leading Role at 2012 Korean Musical Awards, and proved himself as No.1 ticket-selling actor with <Tears of Heaven> and <Elisabeth>.
This year seems to be the group’s activities by riding the momentum gained from the achievement that raised JYJ’s own brand equity.
Meanwhile, the members’ individual activities are in a row for a while. Jaejoong Kim is heading to his Asia Tour after the concert with fan-meeting event in KINTEX, Ilsan, on JAN 26 ~ JAN 27. Yuchun Park is on the moves for CF and fan-meeting after the drama <I Miss You>, and Junsu Kim is having break-time and working for the new songs at the moment.
[NEWS] JYJ Readies New Album and Aims for a Summer Release
JYJ is looking to make its return as a group this summer.
Since releasing their last album In Heaven together in 2011, the JYJ members have gone on to pursue their individual activities appearing in dramas, musicals, movies and releasing solo albums along the way.
After two years, the JYJ members have begun work on their new group album and are targeting a summer release.
For now, JYJ is keeping tight wraps over the upcoming album and concept, but many industry experts are saying that with the success of the members′ individual activities, JYJ′s brand value has risen considerably.
Production on the album is slowly picking up steam and with JYJ at the end of a long legal battle with SM Entertainment and Avex, many are wondering if 2013 will be the year JYJ will be able to spread its wings and make a full-fledged comeback.
