[NEWS] 121205 ‘I Miss You’ Yeo Jin Goo “I Think Yoo Chun And I Look Alike”


Yeo Jin Goo confessed that he thinks Park Yoo Chun and he look alike.

In MBC “Feel Good Day” aired today, Yeo Jin Goo was asked about him looking like JYJ Park Yoo Chun, and he replied “I looked at pictures in articles and I think we do look alike a little bit.”

In the drama “I Miss you,” Yeo Jin Goo is playing the role of the 15-year-old Han Jung Woo, and Park Yoo Chun is playing the role for the current Han Jung Woo.

Yeo Jin Goo said, “Park Yoo Chun is pale and pretty so I was wondering if we would look like the same person in the drama but I think it’s more fitting than I thought so I’m glad.”

About what he’s been up to, he said, “I have to go to high school now so I think I need to be more focused now. After school, I have to go film for a photo shoot as well.”

[NEWS] 121203 JYJ Confirm New Album For Mid-2013 Release, Hope To Perform On TV Again


Now that the ugly JYJ / SM Entertainment legal battle has finally come to an end, the K-pop trio have officially confirmed plans to return with a new album next year. Member Junsu announced the good news during a press conference in Germany for his current Tarantallaga world tour, revealing that we’ll probably see the disc drop around the middle of 2013.

“It’s true that JYJ will release a new album next year,” he told reporters. “It will be sometime in the middle of the year. We’ll be promoting individually until the beginning of the year, but we think we can stand together as JYJ around the middle of the year.”

With SM Ent. now legally out of JYJ’s gelled hair, there’s a glimmer of hope that the talented trio will finally be able to perform on Korea’s broadcast programs again.

“If this result allows us to appear on broadcast again, then it should have happened 3 years ago when we first got into the lawsuit,” Junsu stated.

Junsu doesn’t sound wildly optimistic, does he? JYJ’s label, C-JeS Entertainment, haven’t been all sunshine and lollipops, either, stating last week that the drama between JYJ and SM,isn’t a legal issue, but a battle between David and Goliath.”

With Max and Yunho of TVXQ currently reigning supreme as the fiercest performers in pop music, it’s only fair that JYJ not only get the chance to give the duo a run for their money, but the opportunity to fairly promote their music just like any other K-pop star can. The fact that Junsu served up some of the most epic performances of 2012 with “Tarantallegra,” but was unable to bring them to the small screen, still stands as one of the biggest musical crimes of 2012. There’s only so many times you can watch grainy concert footage before craving the professional gloss of Music Bank or M! Countdown.

[NEWS] 121202 JYJ’s New Album To Be Released Next Year!


Junsu revealed JYJ‘s plans of releasing a new album.

On December 29, a day before his exclusive concert at the Turinenhalle in Oberhausen, Germany, Junsu held a press conference at a hotel. During the press conference, Junsu revealed that JYJ is aiming to release a new album next year.

Regarding the questions about JYJ’s plans of a new album, Junsu stated, “It’s certain that JYJ’s new album will be released next year. It will be around mid-year. We will keep to our own schedules for the first half of next year and appear as JYJ after mid-next year.”

Junsu, who performed in Germany once before his exclusive concert stated, “Last time I was on stage as a member of JYJ but this time I will be performing as a solo artist. This concert will be my last performance as a solo artist so I want to make sure I don’t have any regrets.”

[NEWS] JYJ’s Kim Junsu Says, “This Was A Battle Against SM, Not TVXQ”

JYJ’s Kim Junsu recently opened up about his group’s exclusive contract nullification lawsuit.

Kim Junsu met with reporters on the 29th at a hotel in Essen, Germany and when asked about the possibilities of TVXQ getting back together now that JYJ’s lawsuit with their former agency SM Entertainment has ended after three years and four months, he stated, “I lament the fact that I’m not able to introduce myself as a member of TVXQ.”  Though it wasn’t a direct answer, it seems as though even he sees the chances of TVXQ getting back together again to be low.

Kim Junsu stated, “I, too, find this situation to be unfortunate because I entered the entertainment industry and started out as a singer through TVXQ,” and “Though the situation is unfortunate and regrettable, the title of ‘TVXQ’ will always remain in my heart and I believe that other people, and not only myself, will remember and never forget the five years that I performed as a member of TVXQ.”

He continued to add, “Nothing will ever be as memorable and fill me with joy than if I could stand on stage again as ‘TVXQ’ one day.”

Kim Junsu didn’t hide his affection for TVXQ as he said, “We were fighting a battle against our company (SM Entertainment) and their unlawful practices; it wasn’t that we wanted to throw away our title of ‘TVXQ’ or leave ‘TVXQ’.

He feels the same way about the name that introduced him to the world, ‘Xiah’. Kim Junsu stated, “When I perform in musicals, I use my real name of Kim Junsu. Regardless of what name I use, I give people my all to repay them for remembering me and coming to see me. But I started out as ‘Xiah’ and I would like to keep performing under that name as a singer.”

Though Kim Junsu made his debut and became famous as TVXQ’s Xiah Junsu, he has no longer been able to use that stage name since beginning his lawsuit against SM Entertainment.

When he released his first solo album in May, he released it under the name ‘XIA’, which was his name ‘XIAH’ from his TVXQ days without an ‘H’.

[NEWS] 121129 Dispute That Shocked K-Pop Is Over


One of K-Pop’s highest profile and longest running management disputes has finally come to an end.

JYJ, a boy band that was formed in January 2010 after three members of TVXQ, better known as Dong Bang Shin Ki, broke away, and their former management agency, SM Entertainment, accepted an injunction on Wednesday by the Seoul Central District Court dropping all legal filings between the two sides.

In July 2009, Kim Jae-joong, Kim Jun-su, and Park Yu-chun of 5-member TVXQ filed a suit against the agency, arguing that their 13-year contract with SM was too long given the relatively short career of an entertainer. They also claimed that income was tilted too favorably toward management.

In October that year, the court ruled in favor of the three singers and nullified the contract. In response, SM filed a suit in April 2010 objecting to the ruling and demanding compensation. The three singers filed a counter suit and also demanded compensation. All claims will now be dropped.

The dispute shocked K-Pop fans at home and abroad unused to the less glamorous side of K-Pop and sparked media coverage of the grittier aspects of the business, including so-called “slave contracts,” harsh schedules and unscrupulous managers who cheat on trainees.

Neither JYJ or SM Entertainment could be immediately reached for comment. Paek Chang-ju, the chief executive officer of JYJ’s current management company, C-Jes Entertainment, said in a press release yesterday that the dispute “offered a decisive moment to improve unfair practices that have existed in the entertainment industry.”


The government and entertainment industry groups have acknowledged that there’s work to be done to reform unfair practices.

In May, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said it would tidy up some of the messiness in the industry and filter out unqualified managers with criminal records. Last month, the Fair Trade Commission set up guidelines of fair trade for management, trainees and production companies.

It remains to be seen how much those legally non-binding guidelines will help fix the problems.

[NEWS] 121129 SM-JYJ, 3 Years Of Contract Disputes, Dramatic Conclusion


The 3 years of contract dispute between SM Entertainment and JYJ, consisting of three former members of TVXQ, has finally come to a close.

Yesterday, SM stated through a press release, “JYJ has no intention to come back and join TVXQ and SM felt that there was no further reason to manage the three members. Therefore, they have decided to end the trial and to not interfere with one another after the trial is over.”

They continued, “They did not want to give off any further unnecessary damage or issues to the current TVXQ group and decided to end the trial.”

The three members applied for provisional disposition against SM in 2009 and were allowed to hold individual activities while the trial was being held. The three members then created the group, JYJ.
