The season for year-end music awards is back. Not only will the 3 broadcasters KBS, MBC and SBS be holding their music festivals at the end of December, there are various other music awards and festivals that are being prepared for November.
The most serious problem regarding this year’s music award ceremonies is whether JYJ (Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong, Kim Junsu), the group formed by 3 previous members of TVXQ, will be able to perform. With their own interests at stake, ex-management company SM Entertainment had shown their disapproval over JYJ’s participation in the music awards and festivals.
In reality, if JYJ were to attend and won an award, SM Entertainment, with whom they are in a legal dispute, could refuse to participate in the event. From the organizers’ standpoint, the groups that have enjoyed huge popularity this year include f(x), TVXQ, Super Junior, as well as SNSD, who have just made their comeback. As such, they would have to bear the burden of possibly missing out on all these “big fish”.
As reported in this POST, a portion of JYJ’s donation of 600 million KRW (approximately 600,000 USD) have been used to construct a shelter for the victims. According to World Vision, the shelter provided by JYJ was recently erected in a temporary residential development in Japan’s Iwate Hyun which was one of the damaged area from the large earthquakes.
Love our boys more for their kind hearts <3

[TRANS] The taxi driver asked me “Why did the three leave?” so I explained the details and the current circumstances. He said “That’s so maddening… That must be why people want to root for them even more. They must be really good because even though they don’t appear on TV in Japan so many people from distant places came” Thank you Mr Driver… (T_T)
[TRANS] When I was eating at a ramen stand at the Ibaraki venue the guy at the yakisoba (Japanese stir-fried noodles) stand next door was working busily with a big smile saying “I’m so thankful to JYJ”! So glad ♥

EP1: The loveable personalities of the 3 of them
I didn’t write this for any special reason, and I know you probably have known this already, but I just want to show you a glimpse of the personalities of the 3 of them.
Because I had to be present at a shooting, I took a hurry flight on the 11th night to Seoul.
On the 12th,
At first, I intended to take a picture of the scene during the break of that shooting to introduce on my blog .
However, I didn’t have time since I had to catch the last flight back to Japan, the shooting had to be changed and done in hurry.
The episode of that time.
When I arrived, the first thing I saw was Jaejoong waving and greeting me. With a smile, Yoochun shook hands with me saying that we hadn’t met for a long time. Junsu, for some reason, stood still saying long time no see and I felt like he was a little bit stiff…
I told them the reason I came. Then I showed them the presents that I got them from Tokyo…
I: “This is a present from cameraman P-san… P-san chose it saying that you 3 would be interested in it.”
KBS recently announced that JYJ can’t appear on their Music Bank.
On the 18th, the program posted a note on their official homepage, “Entertainers, who is in litigation, can effect the result of the lawsuit if they appear on TV. We will watch the development of the events and then we will decide about their appearance.”
Since JYJ is currently in litigation, KBS will not allow JYJ to appear on their programs until the result come out.
