Yoochun’s Chinese fansite, Micky Baidu Bar, held fan parties on June 2nd in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing,
and Guangzhou to celebrate Yoochun’s birthday
News of the arrival of South Korean boyband JYJ prompted hundreds of fans to camp out on the streets recently to get closer to the trio. But this wasn’t in Seoul or even Tokyo: it was in Lima.
Having taken Asia by storm over the past decade with bubblegum hooks and dance moves infused with military precision, South Korea’s K-pop phenomenon continues to defy language barriers and find fans around the world. As South Korea continues to export its culture, K-pop’s polished fusion of influences ranging from hip-hop to dubstep is winning a growing number of passionate followers in Latin America.
JYJ has held sellout concerts there and a Colombian TV station is airing a K-pop talent show. Latin American fans have posted hundreds of videos on YouTube showing flash mobs emulating K-pop dance moves and urging their favourite stars to visit the continent, despite many not having officially released songs outside Asia.

A series of pictures of some of the Time Slip Dr. Jin cast making the same pose is catching the attention of fans.
On June 20, MBC released a series of still cuts from its currently airing television drama Time Slip Dr. Jin.
The pictures showed the drama’s main actors in between scenes.
Though wearing different clothes, shooting different scenes and despite the pictures being taken at different times, Park Min Young, Kim Jae Joong, Song Seung Hun and Lee Bum Soo all made the same pose- the stereotypical ‘V’ peace sign made with one hand.
We reported earlier that JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun was in Bali for vacation, but it turns out he was also working during his birthday, shooting some gorgeous photos with fashion magazine Elle.
Following the success of SBS’ Rooftop Prince, Park Yoo Chun flew to Bali to celebrate his birthday, take a vacation and participate in a photo shoot.
In the photos, Park Yoo Chun exuded manly charisma while also promoting the beauty of Bali.
Some follow ups for the main lawsuit between JYJ and SM Entertainment
Just wanted to follow up and clarify some updates of the main lawsuits between Jaejoong/Yuchun/Junsu and SM Entertainment.
*Before you read, the basic information about the current cases will be helpful for you to understand.
There are 2 main lawsuit cases being processed in the court.
(1) The lawsuit to verify ‘invalidity’ of the exclusive contract (= Case No.1)
: This is the one that the three members filed against SM Entertainment in order to terminate the unfair contract and claim for damages.
The members’ lawyers expected that this main case would take a long time, so they filed ‘injunction to terminate the validity of the exclusive contract’ in 2009 in order to ensure the members’ free activities.
As you all know, the court decided in the members’ favour and ordered that 1) the validity of the exclusive contract between JYJ and SME would be temporarily terminated until the main lawsuit is concluded, 2) the three members are free to have entertainment activities, 3) SME cannot make any contracts related to entertainment activities on behalf of the three members without their consents and 4) SME cannot interfere any kinds of entertainment activities of the members during the lawsuit process.
- SME filed an objection against this orders, but it was rejected by the court.
- SME also filed another injunction to terminate the exclusive contract between JYJ and C-JeS Entertainment, but it was also rejected by the court as the court acknowledged that JYJ only made a contract to handle management business as an agency and never made ‘exclusive’ contract with C-JeS.
- The court also made ‘indirect order’ that SME cannot interfere JYJ’s activities, and would be pay 20,000,000 KRW as penalty when every time such behaviour is found.
(Well clearly SME does not seem to care this order, but also this is the reason that it never has blood on its direct hands. They do all kinds of dirty things unofficially, through other organisation such as KFPCAI.)
Anyway, the detailed injunctions and other orders were all decided in favour of JYJ and now the main lawsuit (case No. 1) is under process at the Seoul Central District Court as a civil case.
