JYJ states exclusion from Oricon charts are “injust”

23 Mar

In response towards fans’ complaints about JYJ’s album being excluded from the Oricon charts, the members of JYJ stated that “it is injustice” through a representative.

On March 9th, a representative of JYJ told Star News, “although Avex is preventing JYJ from activities in Japan, the company is selling their albums to gain a profit, we feel that this is ridiculous.”

He added, “when we see Japanese fans, just as their Korean fans, waiting for JYJ and being disappointed over and over again, we feel very regretful.” They continued on to say, “[Avex has] never discussed with us in regards to JYJ’s album releases, and we hope that this issue can be corrected as soon as possible.”

Recently, the Oricon charts, a very prestigious music sales ranking chart in Japan, announced that JYJ’s “Memories in 2010” DVD and “Thanksgiving Live in Dome Live CD” album will be exempt from the chart rankings.

According to Oricon, the decision was made because Avex, as the owner of these two products, already terminated their contract with the artist.

Oricon explained that because JYJ’s Japanese activities were stopped, Avex decided that these products cannot be advertised or promoted.

Avex previously announced their contract termination with JYJ, which caused Youngwoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu to stop all activities in Japan. They released a statement saying, “when the three members of Dong Bang Shin Ki began their disputes with SM Entertainment, it means that our contract with JYJ also became invalid. Because of this reason, we immediately stopped the activities of these three members in Japan.”

What do you think of this entire situation?
