-JYJ’s heartfelt confession regarding the predicaments faced due to their previous management
-JYJ “What should we do?” .. in the midst of thinking of advancing into Japan next year.
-Junsu’s new year greeting: “I shall think of the year of the rabbit as my year.”
“Thinking that only good things will happen right? This kind of conclusion has not been reached. Because we are prepared and settled even in the worst situations, we don’t feel depressed daily due to the uncertain circumstances surrounding us.”
Before we knew it, 3 months has passed since JYJ came out from DBSK and formed their trio. And this is the statement that JaeJoong, YooChun and Junsu delivered.
Even while complications arise with their previous management and previous contract, JYJ released their latest album “The Beginning” and are looking forward to new stage activities. Early next month, they plan to release their “Music Essay”.
In a recent interview with Chosun.com, JYJ said, “A year and a half ago, we had this similar resolution. During our golden days as DBSK, we had the intention of creating this huge resolution. Because we had the readiness to be able to form the life of a singer, and appeared from such a position, all our activities now are precious and we are thankful for them.”
After H.O.T, DBSK ruled the world of singers and were the best male group; it is difficult to forget such a splendid past.
JYJ said, “We are forever DBSK. In the future too, as DBSK, we cannot disappoint our fans. We have no intention of losing reputation and value. Because of that, now, we are determined to treat JYJ’s every move with the greatest care and deliberation. Though becoming from 5 members to 3 members is seemingly a very big change, compared to us having transformed, we would like to hear stories of us moving forward from now on.”
Due to the lawsuit regarding their contract with SM Entertainment and “restrictions on appearing in Broadcasts” etc, the surrounding circumstances have made the 3 members’ individual movements messy.
However JYJ said, “Because we have to independently deliberate and come to a decision on everything, there will be moments when it gets difficult. Sometimes when the issues aren’t solved well, we ask ourselves, “why even for those parts where it can be easily settled , we have to do through it so difficultly”, and became depressed, but in the end, we met a good management and agency and enjoy working and the end result is also good.”
“What will you guys do?” “is 3 months long?” While JYJ was formed separately, there were many negative viewpoints surrounding them. However JYJ recently released a formal album, and while going back and forth between Asia and America, they completed their showcases with the least strain. While revealing that they are now in the process of discussing with the Japan management on their advancement into Japan, a commotion has started in the music industry.
Next year January, JYJ’s worldwide album will be formally released for sale in America. Their management said, “Over in Japan, the interest in JYJ is growing, and we see that there is a lot of anticipation. It is true that the discussion of holding activities in Japan is ongoing. Full fledged activities should begin sometime next year.”
JYJ said, “It has already been 7 years since we have been together. Now, just by looking at each other’s eyes, we can tell what the other person is feeling. We are also in full anticipation of what we will be able to present in future.”
JaeJoong said, “It would be great if we could carry out the activities as ourselves, while with all members being healthy and not falling sick, and always cherishing each other like that and being strong.”
Junsu said, “Till now, I have been working while we monitor each other and receive reliable strength. Even if we were to carry out our own individual projects once again, it would be great if we were to all try our best and achieve great success.”
YooChun said, “Since our debut, this is the first time I have gone on a holiday with the members after finishing a concert, it was really awesome. In the future if we could go for holidays often and also make room to meet with our families, it would be great.”
We were curious about how JYJ feels regarding SM Entertainment’s official announcement that the 2-membered unit of DBSK will be resuming their activities from the start of next year.
JYJ said, “It would be great if thinks work out well for them. Though we feel some regret that they will be appearing with the name DBSK, we do not believe that DBSK means 2 members. We hope that without losing the value of DBSK, they will present awesome and cool activities.”
“Giving New Year greetings.”
The three members of JYJ talked about their New Year wishes for themselves and presented their fans with New Year greetings.
Because on his profile, his birthday is written as 1/1/1987, Junsu is often mistaken as having been born in the year of the rabbit. However, his real birth date is 15/12/1986. Next year is the year of the rabbit, and his name keeps getting included as celebrities who are born in the year of the rabbit.
With regards to that, Junsu said, “Even though I am another year older, isn’t it good to eat more? (laughs) I shall think of next year, the year of the rabbit, as my year, and pray that I will achieve many good things. I hope to portray a good image of myself in the musical “Tears of Heaven” that I am acting in now.”
JaeJoong said, “I am in anticipation to hold activities more freely and vivaciously as JYJ. In the future too, I would like to show a more amazing image of myself through the world tour concert. I hope that the fans will be able to achieve all of their New Year wishes.”
YooChun said, “The Music Essay which will be released this round is a production which includes brand new stories about things which have happened to us and the relationships between the members, which are told through music. So I hope that the fans will show even more interest. I hope that you will receive a promising New Year.”
