Because Hong Seok Chun was at Jaejoong’s concert in Hong Kong, some of the HK press have speculated that he is in a secret romantic relationship with Jaejoong. Instead of focusing on the success of Jaejoong’s concert, the media are writing sensationalizing slander against Hong Seok Chun and Jaejoong, damaging Jaejoong’s reputation overseas in the process. (JYJ3 will NOT be linking those articles, neither the originals nor the translated versions)
The reporters are using some extreme YunJae shippers as their sources/informants, taking leaked information–like this incidence to be true. The actions of these shippers led the news media to continue speculating on Jaejoong’s sexuality, taking the information even further to draw their own conclusions regarding Jaejoong and Hong Seok Chun’s friendship and including Yunho as an ex-lover.
Hong Seok Chun has already faced many difficult situations in his career for years after he openly admitted his sexual orientation to the public. This situation has escalated to the point that is beyond the boundaries of fandom. The actions of fans are affecting the personal lives and careers of real people. We should respect Jaejoong’s friend enough to not burden him with the consequences of fans’ actions.
We want to stress this is a serious situation, not a joke that can be brushed off. As an international entertainer, this issue could have professional consequences for Jaejoong’s work in the future. Finally, we offer this opinion we endorse from Hellothrice:
[NOTE: Please be aware I’m referring to extreme shippers in this post]
I don’t think some “Yunjae shippers” even realize how serious this matter is now. I see so many laughing about it, messaging Jaejoong and Tony (Hong Suk Chun) on Twitter. This isn’t a joke anymore. This is the careers of not one, not two, but 3 different individuals (Jaejoong, Tony, Yunho).
After Jaejoong’s event in Hong Kong, people had been talking about this on Weibo since the moment some extreme Yunjae fans began trying to manipulate others into believing Tony supports “Yunjae.” They continued to spread it and they threatened (still are threatening) to take it to the media as proof that “Yunjae is real.” But, it hasn’t gone as expected. In their attempts to tip media, a gossip site twisted the entire situation into their own version of absurdity and now it has spread Internationally.
Out of this complete act of immaturity and stupidity, now Jaejoong, Tony, and Yunho have had their names attached to this gay rumor. They are all Korean men. I wonder if people even know how long and difficult Tony’s own personal journey has been. Like many other real and sane people in the fandom, I am highly worried.
I only hope and pray now that the Yunjae exhibition being planned for Nanjing is stopped. Its not funny anymore, and the careers of the celebrities are being put at risk. If the media picks up on that, it will bring more stress and unnecessary attention.
In the future, I hope more people begin respecting the rules placed by C-JeS as well. I know some hate them, but instead of violating them and sneaking in items, you should focus on actually supporting the person/people in front of you for their own talents, and not your selfish desire to promote your own “belief.”
And for the record, I don’t care if the artist I support is gay. I support them for their talent regardless of their sexual orientation. I only wish others would learn to do the same and respect their personal and private lives. You are a fan, remember that. You are nothing more than just a fan.
