UPDATE! We have changed the hashtag for #JJandI
As we know Kim Jaejoong mini-album ”I” topped the chart from iTunes Rock Category in 9 Countries, including Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, etc. ”I” also topped/ranked high in other important charts such as: HANTEO, GAON, Japan Oricon, Taiwan Chart and Billboard World Album Chart. His mini-album sold 140K copies (only 140K were produced) and surprised everyone because it was sold in time record for a solo korean artist, in just 2 weeks. Currently Jaejoong’s MINE MV is topping the ranking chart in the Chinese Yinyuetai with more than 10 million hits.
He achieved this without any big promotion like appearing on music & variety shows in Korea. This is a statement of how popular Kim Jaejoong is, so we wanted to do something to mark this and show our support and love to our Jaejoong by taking a photo proof of you (fans) with the album and tweet it to Jaejoong with the hashtag on Valentine’s Day.
We also receive the news of his upcoming repackage album “Y” so it’s a great opportunity to show him love and support.
[PROJECT] “Happy Seniors” A Birthday Celebration for Kim Jaejoong
The boys of JYJ stand out not only for being excellent artists, but
also for their kind hearts and their active involvement in charity
work. In this, we wanted to follow their example. Some weeks ago we
received an invitation to participate in a wonderful project so that
we could celebrate Jaejoong’s birthday differently: with a group of
grandparents. The idea was to go to an elderly home, “Las Rosas”,
bring food and share an afternoon with them.
Around 4:30 pm, the grandparents were sitting in the dining room
waiting for what we would share with them. Beforehand, we ordered a
table with donations and had it decorated with images of Jaejoong,
green balloons, and put on some background music (the songs from
Jaejoong’s new album). Read More →

To: South Korean Press, Media, Journalists, etcetera,
We the JYJ International Fans Coalition (JYJIFC), seek your assistance in forwarding the requests of the JYJ global fandom to South Korean Broadcast Stations, e.g. SBS, KBS, MBC, Mnet, etc.
As representatives of the JYJ fandom:
A. We request the South Korean broadcast stations to respect the new FTC standards, in regards to singers’ freedom of choice in TV show appearances. The FTC standards ban South Korean Entertainment Companies from controlling K-pop singers, TV and radio appearances, on any music/entertainment program show. This means there should be no outside influence on broadcast stations anymore, in regards to JYJ’s appearance on any music or variety program.
B. We appeal to the Broadcast Stations sense of fairness and objectivity, to admit that JYJ has the equal right to appear on music shows, variety programs, and other entertainment programs, just like all other artists in the Korean entertainment industry. JYJ earns this right by virtue of their chart topping sales, millions of views on YouTube, a huge fandom at home and abroad who want to see them. And their numerous, significant contributions in promoting Korea, both at home and internationally. The members of JYJ have an ever growing fan base, which is at the present time, growing more and more frustrated and outraged at continuing to be denied the right to see and hear them on Korean airwaves.
C. We refer you to the Korean Communications Commission (KCC) Broadcasting Act Chapter 1 – Articles 3, 5, and 6. Of which, pertinent sections are provided thus with:
Article 3 (Protection of Rights and Interests of Viewers)
A broadcasting business operator shall make the viewers to be able to participate in decision-making with regard to planning, programming or producing broadcast programs, and shall make the results of broadcasts to comply with the viewers’ interests.
Article 5 (Public Responsibility of Broadcasting)
(2). A broadcast shall contribute to the unity of the people to a harmonious development of the State and a democratic formation of the public opinion, and shall not promote any discords among regions, generations, classes and sexes.
(3). A broadcast shall not injure other’s reputation or infringe on other’s rights.
Article 6 (Impartiality and Public Interest Nature of Broadcasting)
(3). A broadcast shall respect the ethical and emotional sentiments of the people, and contribute to the safeguard of the fundamental rights of the people and the advancement of international friendship.
(4). A broadcast shall protect, extend the people’s right to knowledge and freedom of expression.
(5). A broadcast shall strive to faithfully reflect the interests of the groups or classes that are relatively small in number or at a disadvantage in realization of the pursuit of their interests.
The JYJ international fandom makes the following demands to the South Korean Broadcast Stations:
We petition the broadcast stations in South Korea, to give the artists JYJ, individually, known as Kim Jaejoong, Park Yuchun, and Kim Junsu the following:
1. Their well-earned and deserved right to appear on TV, radio and all other applicable avenues, to perform and promote their music.
2. Equal opportunities to be included on music charts, as may be rightfully deserved, commensurate with sales and in nominations related to official music award ceremonies; as well as to receiving invitations to attend these ceremonies, as deserved.
We do not ask for special treatment for JYJ. We simply ask for what is fair, to allow them to compete fairly, in the entertainment marketplace.
We, the JYJ fandom, have watched with great concern and growing distress, the treatment JYJ has endured these last three and a half years. The South Korean broadcast stations excuse for excluding JYJ, was the ongoing legal dispute between JYJ and their former agency. Since, that dispute has been resolved and JYJ vindicated, there should no longer be a hindrance to JYJ receiving the same opportunities afforded to other South Korean Entertainers.
As a loyal fan base, like those of other Korean artists, we have the same desires to see and hear JYJ on the same programs the others appear on. We, JYJ fans in the diaspora, join with our fellow Korean fan family, in demanding an end to the blocking/blacklisting of Kim Jaejoong, Park Yuchun, and Kim Junsu.
We want the South Korean broadcast stations to understand, we are keeping our eyes and ears open. We are not going away. We seek justice and equity for JYJ.
Thank you in advance, for your heeding our request, in getting the message out. Please help publicize this request, in your articles/publications etc. Your anticipated assistance is greatly appreciated.
