110717 Zhuo Qi Bo’s Apology To Cassiopeia

To have caused so much inconvenience to all of you, I sincerely apologise! I’m sorry!

I would also like to apologise for my error in spelling for “Cassiopeia.”

Please do not blame any companies, because I represent myself, and it has nothing to do with them.

I chose the song, and it is currently being removed in large quantities. This may take some time, and it so happens that it is a weekend.

I believe that we will remove the song as quickly as possible, and with sincerity, returning to your idol the song that belongs to him.

I also hope that everyone can stop (pursuing) this matter.

Rest assured that the song will definitely be removed!

Please give me some time.

(T/N: In Chinese, Cassiopeia is“仙后” but apparently he made a mistake and called them “仙贝”(Senbei) instead. )

110717 Daily Post Of JYJ Tweets

How frustrated must they be right now.. :’( omg Junsu T___T
(Junsu, 1:15pm KST) We cross mountain after mountain.. but ahead looms another one

(Junsu, 1:23pm KST) Why are you all sorry.. we’re the ones who should be sorry

Poor bb must be having a hard time :( *hugs*
(Jaejoong, 11.42pm KST) “Wasurenaide” is neither my song nor anyone else’s song. Because it is the song that belongs to the 5 members of “Tohoshinki.” Therefore, I don’t want it to be sung, neither by one person nor by three people.

…and yet he still doesn’t forget to promote Jeju island T____T

It IS pretty :) I wanna go to Jeju now..
(Yu Shirota, 12.46am KST) @mjjeje nice pic! It’s pretty( ´∀`)
(Jaejoong, 12.53am KST) @U_and_YOU Yes! It’s really something isn’t it? (Laughs)
(Yu Shirota, 1.03am KST) @mjjeje Yes! It’s really something (Laughs)
(Yu Shirota, 1.08am KST) @mjjeje To compete with you. . .so beautiful( ´ ▽ ` )ノ http://yfrog.com/khjt2prj

What wise words this man says :)
(Jaejoong, 1:30am KST) I don’t believe that the 7 Natural Wonders of the World Declaration Committee chooses beautiful locations in the world as a means of publicity for the profit and losses of a specific nation. Finding beautiful things in the world is a “happiness” that everyone in the world shares. Wouldn’t the purpose of choosing these natural wonders be to preserve them for a long time?

(Jaejoong, 1:31am KST) But if there are complicated conditions existing beyond this significance, then the simpleness ..of everyone finding happiness will not be a smooth road.

110716 JYJ’s Appearance Is Suddenly Cancelled… Is It SM’s Doing Again?

Popular group JYJ received a notice today that their concert appearance has been cancelled without prior warning. The concert they were schedule to appear in is the ‘KBS Special Live Show Supporting Jeju’s 7 Wonders Nomination’ that is to be held on the 20th.

CEO Baek Chang Joo of C-JeS Entertainment stated, “We suddenly received the notice today(16th) and even I don’t know the reason behind the cancellation.” JYJ have been active as honorary ambassadors for Jeju’s 7 Wonders Nomination for the past month. They’ve been quite active, singing a logo song and recording videos, asking fans to vote for Jeju. This upcoming performance was meant to be another promotional activity for them as honorary ambassadors.

In a phone conversation with ‘OhmyNews’, one of JYJ’s public relations representatives stated, “We’ve already received the cue sheet for the performance and bought plane tickets as well,” and “We are taken aback by this cancellation as JYJ rescheduled other activities to make room for the performance, thinking of the event as a duty to their nation, regardless of the fact that the members are very busy right now because of activities such as the two members’ filming schedules for their dramas.” He continued to say, “We are frustrated because it feels like JYJ’s scarcity and their fandom’s powerful influence has been used and thrown aside.”

This representative continued to raise controversies over the issue by stating, “The manager who talked to KBS was told, ‘The event might become impossible if JYJ appear.’” JYJ have had restrictions placed on their activities in the entertainment industry since their legal dispute with their former entertainment agency began, unable to appear on variety shows of the three main broadcasting companies of Korea.

Currently, JYJ and their representatives are waiting for the reason why the group’s performance has been cancelled. On the 16th, C-JeS Entertainment posted an official notice on their homepage that said, “We ask for your understanding of our situation of having to notify the fans, who have been waiting for this performance, of the sudden cancellation, and we will post another notice as soon as possible once we have confirmed the details behind the situation.”

As Jeju press, such as ‘The Sound of Jeju’ and ‘Jeju Daily’, have already reported JYJ’s performance on the 20th, KBS’ move to prohibit JYJ’s appearance is expected to have a great impact in the industry.

CEO Baek Chang Joo stated, “We will post another official notice as soon as possible as there are fans who have already purchased plane tickets to Jeju, and please look out for further updates on the issue.”

Jeju Island’s Seven Natural Wonders of the World industry is an event sponsored by the ‘New 7 Wonders’ Foundation and has been controversial in terms of the foundation’s identity as well as the industry’s economic effect.

Voting for the Seven Natural Wonders of the World will end on November 1st.

110715 Park Yoochun’s Affection For Kim Jaejoong Has Him Making A ‘Fried Chicken Pledge’ To Choi Kang Hee

JYJ member Park Yoochun is garnering much attention for texting in to a radio station to support Kim Jaejoong.

Park Yoochun sent a text message to KBS radio Cool FM ‘Choi Kang Hee’s Raise the Volume’ on the 13th. Choi Kang Hee will be acting alongside Kim Jaejoong in the SBS TV drama ‘Protect the Boss’ from the 3rd of August.

Choi Kang Hee read the text, saying, “Mr. 6004! It says, ‘This is Yoochun. I’m enjoying your show. Hwaiting on your upcoming drama and please take good care of Jaejoong hyung,‘” and then commented, “Could this really be Yoochun? Oh, what do I do. His number is right in front of me too. Puahahaha.”

When the text was read out, Park Yoochun sent another one that read, “Thank you for reading my text. I’ll visit once with some fried chicken.” Netizens were split on whether or not it was really Park Yoochun who was texting in, but the opinion that, “Yoochunsa! It really is Park Yoochun,” backed itself up with the fact that the phone number’s last four digits 6004(YookChunSa) sound like Yoochun’s name. Park Yoochun’s Twitter username is 6002themicky, reading ‘Yoochunthemicky’.

To this, netizens said, “Even if it isn’t Park Yoochun, that person better visit Choi Kang Hee with fried chicken”, “This is kind of fun. It’s nice to see the two members’ close relationship”, “Choi Kang Hee is loving this~ Tell me what his number is!”, “It’s great to see him taking care of his hyung.”

110717 Zhuo Qi Bo’s Official Statement : Clarifications With Regards To The Song “Excess”

Good afternoon everyone, I am Zhuo Qi Bo. Please give me some time to clarify the whole matter.

The leaked pre-release of the song “Duo Yu (Excess)” had surfaced online, causing a great dissatisfaction among the TVXQ fans about the fact that this song is a remake of Korean singer as well as original composer of its lyrics and tune, Kim Jaejoong’s “Wasurenaide.” I would like to express my sincere apologies. I understand fully that this song carries a lot of stories and memories for all of you, and believe that I will join your big family bound together by friendship because I, like you, like Kim Jaejoong, his talents and voice. Kim Jaejoong is also the role model and idol that encourages me to work hard and improve myself. Therefore, we will handle all the problems related to “Excess” with diligence, and actively speak with and reach an agreement with Kim Jaejoong himself.

Cassies, please do not worry! Currently, the relevant song has been halted, and will not be released or performed before an agreement has been reached.

Also, we would like to clarify (the details for) “Excess”
Composer : Kim Jaejoong
Rearranged Lyrics : Zhuo Qi Bo / Wei Su
OT : Wasurenaide

This incident is not something that I predicted would happen, and did not consider the feelings of the TVXQ fans. Once again, I would like to say sorry!! I hope for your forgiveness!!!

Also, this incident is not related to Tian Yu Media, Avex Music (Avex China), or SM Entertainment, and it’s not as everyone said, which is that Avex sold Jaejoong’s composition.

I hope for your understanding, and do not erroneously blame unrelated companies. If there is anything, you can blame me, because I chose to sing this song, so I should step out and shoulder all the blame.

We will guarantee the rights of the composer, and protect the copyrights!

I am very sorry for creating trouble and dissatisfaction among everyone! I did not put enough thought into my actions! I’m sorry!

Thank you! I hope that everyone will give me a chance! Please do not pursue this matter any further!

(T/N :  This update is in relation to the fact that Zhuo Qi Bo’s new song “Excess” is actually a remake of Jaejoong’s Wasurenaide. It was leaked onto the internet earlier and caught the attention of the fans – and eventually led to this statement.)

C-JeS’s official announcement regarding Jeju (Full Trans, C-JeS will take legal action)

Hello

This is C-JeS Entertainment.

We are announcing our stance on KBS’s one-sided cancellation notification of JYJ’s appearance in KBS Jeju N7W Special Promotional Program.

Mid-April, through a phone call with the Jeju provincial government, we received their wish to appoint JYJ as an honorary ambassador to promoting Jeju’s selection in New 7 Wonders. The date in which we officially received the roles of an honorary ambassador and their reason for selecting JYJ through e-mail was April 26th.

However, it is customary for honorary ambassadors to begin their promotional activities after being appointed through an appointment ceremony and official press statements are released. Because the time in which we received the offer was during JYJ’s World Tour, we first politely declined their initial offer because we would be unable to hold an appointment ceremony.

However, the local government of Jeju-do stated that they were preparing a special broadcast program in July and that because they are preparing an appointment ceremony to be held then, they proposed that JYJ begin their promotional activities [before the ceremony] since they urgently needed publicity. JYJ, as Korea’s artist, accepted the position of honorary ambassador with responsibility in letting the world know of the domestic brand and Jeju’s 7 Wonders.

On May 4th, the Jeju local government notified the appointment of new honorary ambassadors through the press and [JYJ] officially began their promotional activities. JYJ, who was at the time holding their world tour, promoted Jeju Island and actively cooperated by filming videos encouraging on-line and phone voting as honorary ambassadors. Furthermore, last May, Jeju local government sent us a thank you mail stating that Jeju N7W were being publicized nationwide thanks to JYJ. In addition, the special broadcast program was decided to be held on July 20th, and JYJ was supposed to perform two songs and be officially appointed as honorary ambassadors.

However, on July 16th, 4 days before the concert, we received sudden one-sided notification that our appearance on television has been canceled.  The reason was, “if JYJ appears, the program itself may not air,” a final notification without specific explanation. Today, although KBS claimed to have apologized to JYJ, we have only received one-sided cancellation and never an apology with official explanation.

We believe the broadcasting networks have the right to decide on the people that appear for the sake of their program. However, as this program was a special program wishing for Jeju’s appointment as the New 7 Wonders, and since JYJ has been selected as the official honorary ambassadors and have been holding promotional activities for three months, we insist on an official position from Jeju government and KBS regarding this one-sided cancellation notice.

Furthermore, C-JeS Entertainment will report the organizer, who has one-sidedly (without previous consultation with the artist) sent us a cancellation notice 4 days before the performance to the Fair Trade Commission, and will take legal action against this incident where the party promised JYJ a special broadcast program on their appointment ceremony, but deceived the artist by one-sidedly cancelling their appointment ceremony after using them for promotional activities.

Finally, JYJ’s current lawsuit is a civil suit regarding unfair contract with their previous management company, and is in reality, a weak artist’s fight against the unjust nature of exclusive contract, and thus is not a lawsuit which causes social problems or has moral issues. Furthermore, the courts have already decided that while this lawsuit is undergoing, JYJ has the right to resume their activities as free artists.

Most importantly, we apologize to JYJ fans who have received great shock through this unacceptable situation, andregardless of this situation, JYJ will continue to support promoting Jeju’s N7W as Korean citizens.

Thank You.
