As you know by now, Jaejoong played the role of a common street gangster with hidden skills and great instincts in the Korean drama called ‘Triangle’.

What’s so interesting about this role — and why I think Jaejoong was perfect for it — is that it fits so well into Jaejoong’s visual spectrum. 

I want to make it clear that the depth of Jaejoong’s talents is much, much more than his physical features.  He’s a singer, songwriter, actor and has extensive experience  in producing his own music and JYJ music, and has directed his own tours and music projects.  He is also invested in his own side businesses and is currently a working Art Director (a real title, not a vanity title) at MOLDIR.

For the longest time I have been impressed with the sheer visual range of Jaejoong.  He’s like a walking hologram: depending on the mood he wants to express at any given second, his facial features can change ever so slightly.  Thus, the entire aura he gives off to the viewer can change.

The Korean FTC has issued a sanction against JYJ’s former management agency for purposely disobeying a court order and blocking the group’s ability to promote their projects on tv and radio.

Fans around the world were suspicious about continued external interference from SM after JYJ won lawsuits against both SM and avex (Japan).   Now there is confirmation their suspicious were correct.

CJeS, the agency working with JYJ now, released a statement in response to this news.  CEO Baek Chang Joo called the investigation “transparent” and thanked the KFTC for trying to “eradicate unlawful actions in the industry”.

After winning both of their cases against SM Entertainment (Korea) and avex Entertainment (Japan) respectively,  JYJ will release a magazine in February celebrating their first 1000 days since they stood up for fairness and became JYJ.

JYJ has had a hard road to create, but they continue to stand up like men and unashamedly cut their own path despite not having the backing of a big, totalitarian entertainment agency.

Over the course of their fight, they have been blocked in their own country by the Korean entertainment mill from appearing on television to promote any of their projects.  Not too many Korean entertainers which are still part of that system have publicly shown support for JYJ either.

Recently, Yoochun has attended fan events much to the delight of Chinese fans.  On Sep 8 2012, for exmaple, Yoochun was in Shenzhen as part of that fanmeeting tour.  But these meetings represent a deeper level of importance for JYJ.

Ironically, JYJ’s popularity has increased exponentially in international (non Korean) markets because SM Entertainment (SME) has seemingly used its influence to keep the group from promoting their latest dramas, music, or ventures in South Korea or Japan.

9:00AM: AKP is reporting the following: Another meeting will take place “around Sept 13” between JYJ’s side and SM’s side. 

The arbitration meeting on Aug 10 was 1h30m long where both sides expressed their views.  JYJ’s lawyer reportedly told Star News that the difference in opinion between JYJ’s side and SM’s side is too large for them to come to a mutual agreement.

JYJ’s side wants to “settle all the accounts and issues in court”, while SM wants to ‘forget the past’.

JYJ’s attorney says the Court is the one pushing for a “voluntary agreement or mediation until a decision has been made”.
