Group JYJ has achieved quite a feat, with a nomination for first place on one of three main broadcast station music programs, despite having no promotions on television.
On the August 10 broadcast of SBS’ “Inkigayo,” JYJ battled it out against groups SISTAR and Block B for number one on this week’s show.
JYJ made a comeback as a whole group for the first time in three years, with their second full-length album titled “Just Us,” on July 29. The group is proving their unchanging popularity—even after the long resting period—as shown by the nomination for first place in just 10 days following the release of the new album, even with no broadcast activities in particular.
“Just Us” recorded 120,000 copies in pre-order sales numbers, and set an all-kill on music charts immediately upon its release as well. The album also took the number two spot on Oricon’s weekly ranking chart in Japan, even as a Korean album.
Meanwhile, JYJ began their 2014 Asia Tour “The Return of the King” on August 9.

JYJ, a leading K-pop group that recently returned to the stage after three years, was hit hard by a ban on its title track “Back Seat.”
Public broadcaster KBS banned “Back Seat” from airing due to what it claimed to be inappropriate lyrics, prompting JYJ’s management agency, C-Jes Entertainment, to consider requesting a review in deliberation.
“We passed deliberation for MBC and SBS. But we are contemplating on whether or not to request for a review of deliberation (with KBS),” the management agency said.
According to KBS K-pop deliberation results, “Back Seat” from JYJ’s second EP was banned due to sensational lyrics. Moreover, the broadcaster claims that the line “put you on my back seat” alludes to sexual activity.
An official from C-Jes Entertainment said that the agency is discussing changing the lyrics and submitting for review. But if the story of the song goes the other way, JYJ will go with the original song, he said.

KBS has banned JYJ, Wonder Girls Ye Eun and 4Minute Hyuna’s new songs for broadcast.
According to the result of KBS’s deliberation on popular music, JYJ’s Back Seat, Ye Eun’s Bond and Hyuna’s Blacklist and French Kiss have been disqualified for broadcast.
Back Seat has been banned as its lyrics ‘put you on back seat’ reminds one of sexual intercourse while Hyuna’s Blacklist and Ye Eun′s Bond have been disqualified since the lyrics include profanity.
C-JeS Entertainment, JYJ’s agency, is currently discussing whether or not it will change the lyrics. The agency rep said, “We’re discussing the issue on the lyrics but nothing has been decided yet. We will try to go in the direction to keep the original feel and direction of the song.”
JYJ’s Back Seat has already been qualified for broadcast on MBC and SBS.

JYJ Kim Junsu explained the reason why ‘BACK SEAT’ was chosen as the title song.
At 2014 JYJ Membership Week Fanmeeting and 2nd Album Showcase that was held on August 3rd at COEX D Hall in Seoul, Junsu explained about their title song ‘BACK SEAT’, “The genre of this song is urban R&B. The song is a little unfamiliar, not only to us, but our fans might’ve been surprised as well.”
“Because of JYJ, we wanted to take up the challenge,” he added.
“We’ll be turning 30 next year. Rather than idols nowadays, we wanted to convey the feel of a more mature man. We thought ‘BACK SEAT’ was the song that could naturally show a man’s sexiness,” Junsu said, explaining the reason why ‘BACK SEAT’ was selected as the title song.
Sexy lyrics and dreamlike mood are the main points of ‘BACK SEAT’. The soft whispering maximized the strength of JYJ vocals. The song was released on July 29th.
