Massive Appeal for JYJ song on SKKS OST (Yoochun Drama)

SungKyunKwan Scandal Soundtrack (OST) has sold over 100,000 copies based largely on the inclusion of music from JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu).  The song, Chajatta (Chajada) hasn’t received any official promotion in Korea because of the current conflict the members are having with their former Korean management company. 

Still, the song has generated a groundswell of support from fans.  So much support that the song was nominated for the top spot on the Oct 1st broadcast of ‘Music Bank’.

Music Bank is very well known in Korea.  Only the hottest music in the county along with the most exhausting promotion by the singer(s) seems to be able to make it as a nominee for the top spot.  Despite this, JYJ found themselves as candidates for that top spot.

Translated reports contain quotes from the trio (JYJ) who thanked their fans for the support:

“Despite the continuing difficult situations, we thank our fans for keep supporting and backing us up. Especially for today’s ‘Music Bank’ where we’re nominated as candidate for the 1st spot, this is the first accomplishment by JYJ that is achieved by extraordinary means. Now we gain more [confidence] about the result of the soon coming up new album. We will repay the love of fans by showing great appearances in the future.”

Fans report that it is rare for a soundtrack in Korea to sell over 100,000 copies.
