In the past year 2010, who else could dominate the music scene like JYJ?
Their first album The Beginning had pre-sale up to 520,000, receiving lots of attention in Korea and abroad, such high achievements gave the collapsing domestic markets a strong boast. Including the Asia tours from the past few months, all of the tickets were sold out. Even though JYJ’s fans are less than number of original TVXQ fans, but original fans still consistently supported them when they started their activities, which is very significant to the group. Moreover, they also gained fame. Their new album successfully ranked 5th for Billboard best album of the year, they were also on the home page of the Billboard website, and JYJ with such impressive results when they didn’t do any TV promotions is very inspiring.
JYJ who have been through a lot during the year of 2010 have different thoughts than us, even though they kept most of their original fans creating huge achievements, but because they can’t participate in regular activities, how are they anticipating 2011?
“They actually have numerous activities, but because they can’t appear on TV or have major promotions caused a lot of big misunderstandings with the public. But we believe we are living our live to the fullest, we have our solo activities, and the 3 of us have still held SHOWCASE in Asia and America, but we do feel somewhat regretful for not being able to appear on TV.” When reporter asked them about getting such achievements but did not have corresponding news coverage, members answered truthfully: “Actually we were on Billboard home page, and were 5th for the best album in this year, also we received affirmation from American top producers, so regarding not receiving more coverage, as to our own achievements we have some regrets. Even though the year 2010 was like this but it still let everyone remember it as JYJ’s successful year. Yoochun acting in the drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal caused a lot of talks, Junsu with the musical “Tears of Heaven” has a lot of value, Jaejoong also working hard towards his personal preferences. “Hope 2011 all the dreams and wishes will come true, our goal is to promote successfully in America as JYJ, and starting in March will be the exciting conclusion to the worldwide tour, also hope to receive everyone’s love with our Music Essay to be released this month.”
Boy band TVXQ’s 5 members are walking separate paths, JYJ (Junsu, Yoochun, Jaejoong) took the lead returning to the music world, TVXQ’s Changmin and Yunho will comeback in the next few days. Even though there’s a lot of regret, but even if it’s 3 people group or 2 people group, they have the same heart. It is true for JYJ as well, even though they have legal conflicts with their previous management SM Entertainment, but we believe they have matured a lot through out these experiences. Fans have also split, they are more like two separate groups, but this is not a good thing. The strong presence of the 5 member TVXQ in the Asian Music world and markets could not be ignored, with careful analysis, these results are impossible to be achieved by anyone else. Therefore we can’t look at their situation with conflicting views, we need to start accepting them.
“We tried to contact them (Yunho and Changmin), but in general we couldn’t reach them, because everyone has their own reasons, we were together for more than just a year or two. We have no misunderstandings with the two of them, even though we are apart now but we still believe they can understand our hearts. ” “Regarding the TVXQ duo group comeback information, we have been interviewed about this many times. Even though we sincerely wish they will succeed and hope they perform even better, but we are very reluctant to let go of the name TVXQ, because we are TVXQ as well.” Junsu, Jaejoong, and Yoochun leaving their previous management SM Entertainment wasn’t an easy thing, “When we left SM we have already prepared mentally, that’s why we were able to tolerate until now. Even though it’s very tiring, but we are confident that there will be a satisfactory resolution, always look on the brighter side.”
