JYJ explains rumors surrounding conflict with reporters in Taiwan

JYJ’s label, C-JeS Entertainment, has released a statement regarding the rumors surrounding their conflict with reporters in Taiwan.
On September 11th, rumors began to spread following JYJ’s press conference in Taiwan for their “Return of the King” concert tour.  During the conference, 50 members of the press walked out, in an apparent boycotting of JYJ.
The next day, September 12th, C-JeS responded to the rumors with the following statement: “There was a small conflict while asking the reporters to stop using flash from close distance; five or so reporters complained, but there was no physical contact or boycott.”

CJes also added that the conflict was resolved peacefully and JYJ held another photo session for reporters who came back from the “boycott,” ending the misunderstanding.
Conflicts happen and sometimes things do not end well, but it is a relief that both JYJ and the reporters came to terms.

The three of us are so precious to one another to the point that words like family, friends or brothers are not good enough.”

Kim Junsu shared, “I feel good every time I visit this city. I recently let go of ‘Dracula,’ which I spent the past 3-4 months doing and it was a project that allowed me to learn many things and was a meaningful time.”

[TRANS] JYJ Kim Jaejoong: The Supreme Court finalized monetary penalty ruling for the netizen who spread slanderous rumors on internet

by Ces
Note: This was a lawsuit filed by Jaejoong fans. "Jaejoong fans united efforts together, collecting the screencaptures and organizing them, and then sued the most vicious anti-fan WorldJaejoongZzang (credit: As can be read in the memoirs of a former Herose admin translated by @jaetaku)"
The monetary penalty ruling on the netizen who slandered the idol group JYJ's member Kim Jaejoong has been finalized.

The Supreme Court Department 1(Chief Justice Cho Huidae) announced today(9/11/2014) that it upheld the lower court's original decision of $1,500 fine for A(25 yrs old) who was charged for breaching the Internet Usage Promotion Law and the laws related to information protection(Slander) on August 20th. 

The court explained, "In order to legally punish someone for slander detailed evidences that show this person damaged a specific person's social worth or reputation must be presented. Even though one used value-neutral terms, if it damaged a specific person's social reputation in terms of generally accepted social norm, it is a slander."

The court ruled, "The defendant seriously damaged famous entertainer's reputation in regards to his private life. Therefore, the lower court's decision is valid."

A was indicted for posting malicious rumors about Kim Jaejoong and his family on internet message board from August to September of 2012.

The two previous court rulings indicated, "The defendant freely interpreted and further fabricated rumors going around the internet and seriously distorted the victim's private life causing significant damage to his social reputation. The defendant's crime is highly malicious." Since A is deeply regretting her crime, the court finalized the monetary penalty.

Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu Enjoy Popularity In Japan


The members of the leading k-pop trio JYJ worked hard during the last year to develop successful careers of their own. And that hard work helped them succeed independently and around the world. But the singers are especially popular in Japan, where their concert performances sell out and their music and dramas quickly climb to the top of the charts.

When the trio released "Just Us," in July 2014, it had been three years since they made an album together. That album now ranks #1 on Tower Records' music charts in Japan. The same album also reached the second place in the Japanese music chart Oricon.
When the album was released in Korea, it sold 17,000 copies in the first week.  But its success in Japan may be considered a more remarkable accomplishment since JYJ's record label, C-JeS, did not even promote the album there.

Ilgan Sports recently reported that JYJ's agency is inundated with calls about the band's current Asian tour, titled The Return of the Kings.
"We receive a lot of requests from the Japanese fans to perform in their cities and we will try to do our best to confirm these performances," a C-JeS representative recently told Soompi.
The Return of the Kings tour, which visits Thailand, China and Vietnam, runs through Sept. 27.
Each of the band's members has a devoted following.

This year Kim Jaejoong is especially popular in Japan impressed critics with his performance as Heo Young Dal, the foolish gambler turned confident gambling executive in "Triangle." Not only did 2,000 fans turn up for his recent Japanese fan meet to promote "Triangle," but his face also appears on a special commemorative stamp in Japan.

Park Yoochun added another top-notch performance to his acting resume this year when he played a special agent in the political action thriller "Three Days." When Park Yoochun traveled to Japan a few months ago to promote his previous drama "Missing You," 1,000 fans waited for him at the airport. That drama ranked No. 1 in the pre-order chart. His film "Sea Fog," will also be shown in Japan.

When Kim Junsu had solo concerts in Tokyo and Osaka, 63,000 fans attended. He started his solo career in 2010 by releasing the single "Xiah" in Japan. It reached the #2 spot on the Oricon singles chart. In 2013 he released the solo album "Incredible." Which also reached #1 in the Oricon charts. In the last two years Junsu appeared in the musicals "Elizabeth," "December" and "Dracula." Junsu is so popular in Japan that his Japanese fans travel to Korea to see his musicals.
