Japanese Fans are Angry at Avex’s “Killing JYJ”

1 Apr

Because Avex, the former agency, is thoroughly blocking JYJ (the 3-member unit resulting from the splitting of TVXQ consisting of Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu), it is incurring the anger of Japanese fans.

JYJ was enthusiastically giving their strength towards the restoration of Japan from the earthquakes, for instance putting forth the donation of 600 million KRW for the restoration of the northeastern region of Japan from the large earthquakes and also relaying the earthquake crisis of Japan in the World Tour due to start on April 2nd. There was also word that they will hold a charity concert in Yokohama Arena in June and would donate a portion of the performance fees and proceeds to the affected areas.

However, the news that Avex requested the Sports Newspaper (see http://wp.me/p1gQsC-2aY) and (other) influential newspapers that it wishes them to refrain from publicizing the news of JYJ’s concert and thus blocked them was reported in the daily newspaper Cyzo (see http://wp.me/p1gQsC-2gD) on the 24th.

According to the reporting, the Daily Sports Online which had posted this news deleted the news a few hous later, and it became so that in other newspaper agencies too, one could not find his news. That the news of a concert by JYJ, a group that receives tremendous support of fans, was not posted in any place whatsoever, makes it hard to erase the feelings that there were some backhanded dealings.

According to a records affiliate, Avex is restraining JYJ in order to promote/push the 2-person TVXQ which had its comeback. Avex believes that if JYJ, which has Jaejoong — the member who had the highest level of popularity in Japan – was to actively participate in Japan, it would interfere with (the 2-person) TVXQ that had its comeback, and therefore aims to thoroughly block JYJ’s activities, it is said.

On Avex’s actions that interfered with JYJ’s activities, there is the uproar of the “JYJ Excluded from Records Charts” which Oricon confessed. (see http://wp.me/p1gQsC-1Gw) On the 7th, Oricon put up an announcement which said that it will “exclude the JYJ DVD and albums which were released on March 2nd.” As for the reason, it is because (JYJ) received a command from Avex, the rightsholder to the records, to cease all activities.

That (Avex) would release and sell new albums but will eliminate (all) promotions and rankings (charts) is without mistake an act of complete disregard for JYJ. However, there is high possibility that because Avex which boasts #1 power in Japanese music industry had requested, Oricon complied.

At the (current) “Kill JYJ” by Avex which comes at the heel of the Oricon incident, the Japanese have become extremely angry. They exploded in their complaints as follows:

“I don’t understand the reason to stop them from not just anything but this concert which (JYJ wishes to do in order) to help Japan. Is it more important for Avex to “Save/Put Life into 2-person TVXQ” than to restore Japan?”

“I don’t know whether this article is to be believed. But it is true that because there was the recent Oricon incident and such, there is suspicion. Without mistake, #1 in Oricon was as good as made.”

“(JYJ) even made a donation, but to have Avex think only in terms of money, Avex is too much.”

“As a Japanese (like Avex), I am ashamed.”

At the same time, JYJ’s agency denied the article saying that the June 7th Yokohama Concert was not in the schedule. Nonetheless, the anger of the fans hinges on more than the truth and the falsity (of this particular mater). They are expressing their disappointment, saying: “It cannot be helped but be suspected, as there was the Oricon incident also,” and “Already there is nothing but bad images for Avex. Avex’s power is all a glory of the past.”

JYJ thanks iLoveJYJ fans for their support

9 Mar

As we have previously reported, despite the resolution of the court cases between SM entertainment and JYJ, JYJ has still had difficulties appearing on public television. To show support for the group, fans have set up a website, IloveJYJ.com, to broadcast JYJ’s music and videos. The website was originally set to launch on March 3rd, but due to an overwhelming response that led to their servers overloading, the launch was pushed back to March 4th.

Prior to the websites launch, a JYJ representative revealed that the group was aware of their fans’ efforts and were very grateful. The representative stated, “We fully notice that fans made their own capital investments (to build the station). In fact, JYJ members are also aware of this matter, they’re really grateful for the love of all fans.” He then continued, “However if we recognize this internet broadcasting station dedicated to JYJ, ‘iloveJYJ’ as an official station, it will lose its genuineness. We want to preserve this fansite as a website that is created by fans due to their pure love.”

All throughout the world, fans have been showing their support for JYJ. We previously reported that fans in Venezuela bought a newspaper ad to support the JYJ members on their music essay, “Their Rooms.” American fans also placed a full page ad in Korea Daily. In addition, fans in Asia have been purchasing ads on buses and subways to support JYJ, with the most recent being the “Kim Jaejoong, Park Yuchun, Kim Junsu—Ride the Express Train to Public TV ” campaign held by Korean JYJ fans. Other slogans used in past campaigns have included “Courage, Dream, Fighting,” and “JYJ, We Support Your Youth.“

What do you think of the recent activities of JYJ’s fans? Are you amazed and proud of their efforts and support for JYJ?
