The reason JYJ, the group who was shaken due to the split, ‘won the lawsuit’ and start afresh, silenced the leaders of the entertainment world.
Korean’s famous group, ‘JYJ’ held a 3-day concert in Tokyo Dome from April 2ND. The tickets went sold out on the same day and mobilized a sum of 150,000 people. If the fans who went to live-viewing are added, a total of 210,000 fans enjoyed the concert.
JYJ has once again proven their huge popularity in Japan, but, it is also widely known that they have been deprived from Japan’s center stage after getting entangled in contract dispute for 3 years. This event (Tokyo Dome) in particular was as symbolic as, quoted by Nikkan Sports, the achievements of a soccer tournament.
‘In 2012, a soccer match that has their main star, JYJ’s member Junsu’ was held in Kokuritsukyougijou Stadium. The opposing team was a team comprised of the artist from Kishimoto Entertainment. Apart from that, various Hallyu stars was planned to gather for the match, thus on that day, more than 50,000 people congested the area to gather as audience. However, nearing the date of the event, one after another Hallyu star cancelled on the event. Furthermore, despite of this big incident, the one who made an article of it was Nikkan Sports. And it was only a tiny and insignificant article of the event. The whole (of the article) was about AVEX, who do not recognize JYJ’s Japan activities and had applied for “appeal”’ (Reporter of a sports paper)
To start from the beginning, AVEX debuted Tohoshinki in Japan amidst the height of Hallyu Wave. The trouble came from the injustice of contract with their Korean management company, SM Entertainment. The result was, three out of the five of them, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu withdrawn from the original group and formed JYJ. With a Korean based entertainment company, ‘C-JeS Entertainment’, they started with their own activities, but , due to the law dispute with SM who do not recognize their independence, ever since then, JYJ’s activities has been restricted in various form.
‘Naturally, it affects their Japanese activities as well. The one who is responsible for Tohoshinki’s activities in Japan, AVEX, at one time acknowledge that the group had split, and made a new exclusive contract with JYJ and the new management company. However, after SM filed a claim, suspicions arises about C-JeS representative’s close acquaintance together with his anti-socialness, (JYJ’s) activities in Japan was unsurprisingly suspended.’ (Reporter of a sports paper)
With this, the power of a management company for JYJ in Japan become afloat, thus a lot of companies are showing interest in getting the rights to manage them.
For example, in 2011, JYJ had boldly said ‘to donate JPY 100M to the area struck by The Great Tohoku Earthquake’ and held a concert in Ryougoku Kokugikan Arena, but, there’s even this rumor by the one who sponsored the concert, ‘Zak Corporation.’
‘Apart from only donating a small amount of money, the concert had the incidence of a loss of JPY 300 M and the company suffered a deteriorating finance that, by the following year, they filed for Civil Rehabilitation Law. However, on the other hand, before the bankruptcy, Zak’s President M had a joint venture business and purchase new shares for an investment firm and he settled to be an operating officer of the firm. It’s no surprise if we say that the bankruptcy was just a camouflage.’
In addition, there’s even the dispute over the concert’s live video footage. There’s also another story in which it is reported that Japan’s production company ‘kela project’ was resorting and preparing to sue C-JeS President Baek for violation of copyright.
Jaejoong is actually afraid of naked photos.
