This is a letter from Yunho’s father containing his take on the dispute between JaeChunSu and SM Entertainment.

100426 Yu Kigoshi’s Blog Update

NOTES FROM THE STAFF TEAM:
T/N: Yu Kigoshi, born 1981. He is a writer in a publishing company, and also the author for the books “The Secrets of Tohoshinki Part 1” and “Part 2”. Some of our friends should remember that he collected encouraging comments to send to Yunho and Yunho’s father in Dec 2009 – Jan 2010.

T/N #2: Yunho’s father’s message was written before the news of the new unit was announced by avex. The blog entry was translated directly from Japanese, while Yunho’s father’s message was translated directly from Korean. We have made sure to keep the translation as accurate as possible to it’s original form.

T/N #3: Before reading, one request from the staff team, please. When we introduced Kigoshi-san’s activities of sending messages to Yunho and Yunho’s father in Jan, we were sad to see some negative comments and groundless bad mouthing in some of the English sites, criticizing Kigoshi-san’s activities, which were especially for Yunho and Yunho’s father. Kigoshi-san seems to have seen them, too. We sincerely hope that all of our friends hold respect to those who are using their precious time for us fans. Thank you very much.

A Message from the dearest, Yunho’s Father

To all the Tohoshinki fans,

There should be many that have shed their tears hearing the news of the “suspension of the activities”, and waiting with all their hearts of the comeback of Tohoshinki.

Yesterday (T/N: April 13), I have contacted Yunho’s father for a few times, and received his message.

There was a request from Yunho’s father to disclose his message in my blog in both Korean and Japanese.
The Korean message was written by Yunho’s father himself, and I have translated the message into Japanese.
*Since I am not a professional translator, I had my friend who is a professional translator confirm the contents.

=======================================================================

Yunho’s Father’s Message

Thank you Kigoshi Yu for your letter.

Although we were planning to meet when you came over to Korea, unfortunately I was unable to get time off from work, so we have put it off until next time.

When we were supposed to meet, you were going to tell me how the Japanese fans want TVXQ to continue. I, too, am praying that this problem will be resolved quickly, and that TVXQ can once again resume their activities not only in Korea, Japan, and Asia, but also worldwide.

However, it has come to my attention that there are many people who has the wrong idea about this matter; that’s why I am writing this letter with hopes of explaining it, even if just a bit.

Fans and many others are aware of the case with TVXQ. This is about the three members of TVXQ who are in a contract with SM Entertainment, and during the contract period, are embroiled in a legal dispute which has put the whole group (TVXQ) into jeopardy.

The members of TVXQ who are not involved in the dispute, Yunho and Changmin, are receiving most of the damage and they are hoping that this incident will be satisfactorily settled for TVXQ’s continuation. They wish that the members involved and SM Entertainment would be aware that they are leaders in the Hallyu wave, and would think of the love and support from their fans up to now, and return to how they were in the beginning so that they could come to an agreement and resolve this.

This situation can only be resolved by SM Entertainment and the three members who are involved in the legal dispute.

As Yunho, Changmin and their parents have already stated in the press release on 11th of November 2009, TVXQ has a contract with SM Entertainment, and because we believe that promises and trust are important, we are waiting, in order to protect TVXQ.

If everything gets settled and the three members do return, they have still endangered TVXQ as a group, and have prevented them from doing any activities in Korea for a year, and finally, they have had to stop activities in Japan as well. In doing so, they have inflicted much harm in the moral, financial, reputational, and psychological aspects. However, because the most important thing is to protect TVXQ, we are willing to forgive and understand them for their actions.

It seems like there are people who think that in order to keep TVXQ together, the other two members must leave SM Entertainment. However, there are no moral or legal rights that will prove this claim.

In human relationships, your faith and promises become a priority, and there are principles in commerce/deals. If both sides agree to something, and there are no big problems, it is socially and morally unacceptable for you to thoughtlessly break that promise for your own gain.

SM Entertainment has made TVXQ the most popular group in Korea from the very beginning, and over the past six years have enabled them to become top artists in Korea, Japan, and the whole of Asia. They have turned the five members from an unknown group to top artists.

Also, TVXQ members are all bound to a contract, and Yunho and Changmin do not think that there are enough problems with SM Entertainment to breach their contract, and leave the company.

If there are parts that need adjustments, they could have talked it over to improve it, but they didn’t take into account of the other two members, and filed a lawsuit which has threatened TVXQ’s very existence.

If the three who instigated this legal dispute reflect on their actions and return to their original place, everything will be resolved.

However, the three went on with it, and no matter how you look it at, there is no just cause in asking the other two to leave as well.

I’m aware that I’m repeating myself, but Yunho, Changmin, and their parents only want the continuation of Dong Bang Shin Ki (Tohoshinki).

I hope that the three members and SM Entertainment, who are involved in this legal dispute, will quickly resolve this problem so that TVXQ can resume their activities now, for the long run, like how the two members, their families, and all their fans wish for.

=======================================================================

Ever since the problem of Tohoshinki occurred, my way of thinking is the same as that of Yunho’s father.

The problem raised should be solved by the ones who have caused them.

The outsiders should just pray for the settlement, and wait quietly.

I have written in this blog a few months ago, but the conflict of the fans may hurt the members. The fans should do what they can, that is, to wait quietly for their comeback.

After reading this message, please close your eyes and think once again.

What we fans wish are, not conflict, but settlement.

Honestly, I was utterly disappointed to what Yunho’s father wrote. I know he has the right to say what he feels about this whole issue but I hope he thought more about what he’s saying before asking Yu Kigoshi to post it on his blog for all the fans to read.

He already said it himself that the statements released back in November 2009 are really from them (although wasn’t it mentioned before that Yunho and Changmin’s letters weren’t written by them?) and this is what hurts me the most. In that statement, he said a lot of hurtful things to JaeJoong, Yoochun, Junsu and their parents as if they are the worst people in the world for letting this happen. As a lawyer himself, I didn’t expect Yunho’s father to release such statements to the public regarding this matter. I THOUGHT HE KNEW BETTER than to do this and eventually complicate things.

I know it can’t be helped that he’ll be involved in this because his son is directly affected with everything that’s going on but I don’t think he needs to put the blame on the three members for everything. Why can’t he just silently provide support to Yunho and pray for the best just like what JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu’s parents are doing? Why does he need to say bad things about the three members (especially in the statement released last November) and obviously put the blame on them for starting all of this. If he truly loves DBSK and the members, is it right to do something like this which will only damage the relationship of the members? Is this his proper way of wanting DBSK to continue?

I am not defending JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu but I really think that what Mr. Jung said was out of line and is only based on his point of view and his son. Some people may see the three members’ decision of filing a lawsuit against SM as something wrong because they brought the group into this kind of situation and I understand that this is probably why Mr. Jung is a bit angry with the three. But has anyone considered looking at it in JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu’s perspective? Did Mr. Jung realize that although Yunho and him are satisfied with SM’s treatment, the three members might not be feeling the same way? That they feel abused? I hope he thought of that before stating things about how “wrong” the three members’ decision is.

His message is so long and I’d like to comment on most of the parts but I can’t remember all of them so I decided to quote him before I write my comment.

If everything gets settled and the three members do return, they have still endangered TVXQ as a group, and have prevented them from doing any activities in Korea for a year, and finally, they have had to stop activities in Japan as well. In doing so, they have inflicted much harm in the moral, financial, reputational, and psychological aspects. However, because the most important thing is to protect TVXQ, we are willing to forgive and understand them for their actions.

There is no denying that the three members’ decision of filing a lawsuit has “endangered” the existence of DBSK and it was the reason why all their group activities were suspended. Certainly, they have inflicted “harm” to Yunho and Changmin in a lot of aspect but I hope Mr. Jung also knows that it wasn’t only his son and Changmin that was “harmed” in this situation. I hope he also knows that after this is over, it is not only JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu who should be forgiven because of everything. I hope he realizes that the three members also deserve an apology from him and everyone who has treated them as if they’ve committed a mortal sin for asking SM Entertainment the proper treatment they deserve.

In human relationships, your faith and promises become a priority, and there are principles in commerce/deals. If both sides agree to something, and there are no big problems, it is socially and morally unacceptable for you to thoughtlessly break that promise for your own gain.

Yes, faith and trust is important in relationships as well as honoring an agreement that you’ve had with another person. It is true that the three members have agreed with the contract and signed it but the thing is, THERE IS A BIG PROBLEM that is why they had to ask for the contract to be broken. Even the Korean court has ruled it in favor of JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu which only means that there is DEFINITELY something wrong with the contract. If it was proven legally that the contract is unfair, then I don’t see why breaking it is socially and morally unacceptable. Besides, is it wrong for the three members to wish to gain something that they DESERVED to get even from the start? I guess not.

SM Entertainment has made TVXQ the most popular group in Korea from the very beginning, and over the past six years have enabled them to become top artists in Korea, Japan, and the whole of Asia. They have turned the five members from an unknown group to top artists.

Again, I won’t deny the fact that SM played an important role in bringing DBSK together and making them who they are today. Proper promotions and the members’ talents is what made them the biggest star in Asia today. But is gratitude enough to continue accepting an unfair treatment? Again, the answer is no. I’m sure all the members are grateful to SM for making them big stars today but that is not enough reason to let themselves endure something that is obviously unfair and something that they do not deserve. The reason why a lot of people are continuously being abused is because they always think that it is ok to endure a bad treatment just because they are in debt with the person who abuses them. It’s ok to be grateful to the people who helped you become who you are but it is wrong to let yourself be treated unjustly and be tied to them just because of that gratitude.

Also, TVXQ members are all bound to a contract, and Yunho and Changmin do not think that there are enough problems with SM Entertainment to breach their contract, and leave the company.

See, that’s the thing. Yunho and Changmin do not think that there is something wrong with the contract but JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu does. I think it would be unfair to let them continue accepting something that they felt is abusive just because the other two members think otherwise. Yes, they are a group but they are individuals with their own minds. Maybe Yunho and Changmin are strong enough to endure everything and are contented with the treatment they get but they shouldn’t expect JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu to feel the same. Whether or not the people around them think the three members are treated unfairly and are abused, as long as they themselves felt that way, then there is no reason for them not to fight for what they think they deserve.

If there are parts that need adjustments, they could have talked it over to improve it, but they didn’t take into account of the other two members, and filed a lawsuit which has threatened TVXQ’s very existence.

They did try talking with SM for months but it was useless. SM just won’t listen. That is why the only option left for them to do to make SM listen to them is through a lawsuit. I do not believe that the three members didn’t take into account the other two members’ opinions before they filed a lawsuit. Didn’t they say they talked about this as a group before they filed a lawsuit? They even had a good relationship even after the filing of the lawsuit because I believe they did understand each others’ decision to stay or go. Things only began to become complicated between the members when those statements from the two members and their parents were released back in November.

If the three who instigated this legal dispute reflect on their actions and return to their original place, everything will be resolved.

I’m sorry to say Mr. Jung, but that’s not as easy as you think. As a fan, I don’t want the three members to just “return to their original place”. I love DBSK as a group but I love the members more and I care for their welfare the most. If that “original place” is with an unfair treatment from SM, then I wouldn’t want them to be back. I want them to be in a “better place” and I’m willing to endure seeing them apart for now if it would mean that they’ll have a better future ahead of them once this is over.

However, the three went on with it, and no matter how you look it at, there is no just cause in asking the other two to leave as well.

I am sure that the three members aren’t forcing the two to join them. In fact, they respected their decision and went with the lawsuit without them. I believe the three members respect Yunho and Changmin’s decision to stay as much as the two respect JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu’s decision to file this lawsuit.

I’m aware that I’m repeating myself, but Yunho, Changmin, and their parents only want the continuation of Dong Bang Shin Ki (Tohoshinki).

If they really wish for DBSK to continue then I hope they learn to understand the situation of the three members, too. They and their parents didn’t say anything bad about Yunho and Changmin or their parents even after the statements  were released last November, which obviously contained hurtful words for the three members and their parents, so I hope Yunho and Changmin’s parents will do the same. There is no need to play the blame game here. I’m sure no one wanted all of this to happen. Respect and understanding is what I wish to see in this situation.

I hope that the three members and SM Entertainment, who are involved in this legal dispute, will quickly resolve this problem so that TVXQ can resume their activities now, for the long run, like how the two members, their families, and all their fans wish for.

That’s what all of us are wishing for.

I’d just like to say that I am not angry with Mr. Jung because of his statement. I’m disappointed, yes, but I’m not angry with him because just like you and I, he is entitled to his own opinion. I just hope that he’ll be more sensitive in releasing such statements because it can directly affect and complicate things. I’m not saying that JaeChunSu and their parents are saints either. I think everyone has had a hand in making this situation complicated. Like what I said, I just want respect and understanding from both sides until this is over. It is painful for fans like me to hear their own parents saying hurtful things against the members. I believe nobody wanted things to be like this. Nobody wanted DBSK to come to this point. Each and every one of them just wanted to stand by what they think is right and it is inevitable that some unpleasant things will happen along the way. But what’s done is done and I guess the most important thing now is for them to be open minded and remember that everybody is a victim. I think above all this chaos, the six years that they’ve spent together and their love for each other is what is MOST important.

I hope fans won’t take these words by Mr. Jung as Yunho’s own opinions. These are purely his father’s words and not his. I’m still waiting for the members’ statements and like what I have said before, it is their words which I’ll ultimately believe in. These are only opinions by the people around them who doesn’t know everything that they’re going through. Even if they are their parents, I believe that there is still a lot of things they do not know about the members’ relationship and feelings. Only the five members knows what is the truth and it’s only their words I will believe.

Always keep the faith!

    i with you cla, a hundred percent. reading this makes me frowned and somehow want to shed a tear, more than before. with all my respect to mr. Jung, i just want him to know that ALL of them and all of us are suffering. even IF it is the three’s mistake, what they’ve been going thru is enough to make them punished and no one needs to add the pain by blaming them.. IF they really are greedy, they would have filed the lawsuit years ago without enduring their exhausting and sickening work..
    i believe that yunho is in a very difficult situation, should he stand for his father or his brother. T,T

  2. jen says:

    I totally agree with u.I don’t like how aggressively he is blaming the three for ruining everything. Come on, they are 25 years old. They know what they’re doing. They have rights to do what they want. Respect and understand their decision…… Jaejoong, Yu Chun , Junsu …. I will always by your side n wish u all the best.

  3. trulyasian says:

    Long…

    I agree with what you said. I am happy JaeChunSu are out. Problem is that the members who have come out of DBSK are the most popular, though almost all of them are equally popular, 60% is greater than 40%..

    I just hope Yunho and Changmin wont fade away like old SM stars do.

  4. reallaerreal says:

    you just take all the word out of my mind.

    I don’t understand why he blamed JSY everytime. I, myself, repect those boys decision. TVXQ is not more important than their personal feeling and happiness anymore. I just hope they could live good lives and enjoy their career.

    I still doubt whether this letter and those messages a couple months ago in Ku’s Blog are real. However, sometimes silent speaks louder than words.

    I’m going to take a step back and not read this. it only hurts more. I’ll brave it some other day.
    I wish they’d realize how hard we’re all (the fans) taking this, too. I know the people involved are taking it hard, but it’s no paradise for fans either.
    It’s confusing enough to have to divide myself to two sides, stick by jaejoong, junsu and yoochun’s fight and at the same time sticking by yunho and changmin. but when one side starts villifying the other… ugh.
    sometimes I wish this lawsuit haven’t even started, but I can’t ignore the group’s exhaustion. sometimes I wish homin just joined, but they’ve made their decision and we have to respect that. I wish with all my heart that SM would just change the contracts, or have had a decent contract to start with, but it isn’t happening.

  6. joons says:

    i agree with you.. this is disappointing and unnecessary. i understand that he’s speaking this way because it’s his son that he’s talking about and that he’s just worried for his son’s future. but i think he should know that the boys have been together day in and day out for the past 6+ years and know each other better than any of us could imagine. i’m pretty sure that they know what each of them were feeling and thinking when they came to this decision and ALL 5 were affected – but i’m sure they were probably expecting this. they knew it would get this bad and they decided as a group. he says that it’s wrong of the 3 members to “ask the other 2 to leave SM,” but from what it sounds like he’s doing the same thing by telling them to come back and stick to the original contract.

    i wish he had put more thought into this statement because it just reflects badly on him. and it’s also kinda discouraging. as a fan, we’ve all come to accept what’s going on and to wait for them and to support their decisions cause we just want the best for them. and then for him, as a parent of one the members – someone so close to the affected members, to come out and go against everything that we’ve come to peace with… just doesn’t make sense. it makes it sound like he doesn’t talk to his own son or doesn’t know that this won’t help the situation at all….

    all i’m waiting for is the end. cause i know when this is all over, whatever the outcome, both sides – all 5 of them – will have learned so much from this experience even though it probably wasn’t one of the happiest times in their lives. they will have grown so much as a person, as an artist, and as a person in this industry. hopefully they can be the ones that can give advice and prevent more instances like this in the future.

    Hope Mr. Jung reads what have you said.

  8. Miriam says:

    I agree with you about this matter. yunho’s father shouldn’t have posted this message which can cause more harm than good. Saying these stuff will cause fans to take sides and also can damage the relationship between the members. If yunho has decided not to speak of this matter then i don’t think yunho’s father should either. the contents of his message mostly revolves around defending himself and also homin. this makes it look like it has nothing to do with them and that the other 3 members are causing trouble. there are parts which he said were true about sm entertainment bringing them up to this point where they are so famous but it is also due to their hardwork and determination that they are the top now. if he says that this lawsuit thing is causing homin to suffer then what about jaechunsu? their career is also on the line now due to this lawsuit. there are many evidence that sm entertainment has abused tvxq but he is still taking their side. yunho may be just enduring what sm has been doing to them but jaechunsu took up the courage to gain their rights. there is nothing wrong in that. if sm is not in the wrong, there is no need for them to hide anything or to create a problem between the members causing their relationship to worsen. anyhow, even if tvxq breaks up i’m very sure all cassieopeias will support each member and one day they will return as one :)

    Always keep the faith <3

    *sigh*

    I’ve been keeping my own opinions to myself since I don’t wanna stir any problems. But I simply agree with you…

    “Silence is gold” is not coming out of no where…

    My wish is merely simple…I want some ppl keep quiet and certain ppl not posting up unnecessary post. As much as they want to help clearing the situations, in the end, they just make it more complicated… *sigh*

    Hope members and cassies wont waver after reading this articles…

    AKTF

  10. Serena says:

    I totally agree with you. I think that Mr. Jung is only looking at this lawsuit in the perspective of SM and not JaeSuChun.
    If they quietly go back to SM the past 9 months would have been a complete waste of time. And to me, it almost feels like he is bashing JaeSuChun for going out against SM when he says that they are willing too forgive them if they come back, as if they did something wrong. If 3 out of the 5 members do not think that the contract is fair, then they’re is obviously something wrong with it.
    Thats just my opinion. I really hope that they settle this soon.

  11. need_chocolate says:

    *sigh*

    I agree with every single word that you wrote…I understand Yunho’s father because he’s Yunho’s father, it’s totally natural to defend him, but I wonder what kind of statemet would he make if Yunho was one of those tree.

    “If the three who instigated this legal dispute reflect on their actions and return to their original place, everything will be resolved “….
    …..he’s wrong, that’s not possible. it has been 9-10 months since lawsuit, it’s already done, JaeSuChun know it’s impossilbe, if they wanted to go back, they would do that on the 12th November 2009 (I think it was 12th)…..

    it crystal clear that he puts blame on the trio, but it’s his own opinion…I wonder did he have chance to talk to other parents. How come that Junsu father didn’t say anything, or JaeJoong’s (step dad), or Yoochun’s mum. They are keeping silent, and I think that’s the smartest thing that parents should do…..I believe Mr. Jung is good person but, this was unnecessary from him

  12. Yane says:

    totally agree with you …

    i can understand JaeChunSu and i’m proud of them for defend their rights ^^ and about HoMin .. i think i can understand their situation too … i just hope that someday they all can reunite again

    but … no mater what … i will support the 5 members of TVXQ. always .

  13. nokaejoong says:

    My feelings are just like you. The first time I saw this statement, I was disappointed and thought of Yunho. I can’t think of how this statement from his father will protect him. Mr.Jung’s words have conflicts in themselves. He said the most important thing is to protect TVXQ ,but when I conclude all what he said, I don’t think he has any will or intension to do so.

    He sure has the right to speak up for HIMSELF and his son. But it will be better if he considerates enough before he speaks.

    “If everything gets settled and the three members do return, they have still endangered TVXQ as a group”

    I couldn’t believe these words are from the best leadershi’s father, really. But I don’t want to say more for the sake of his nice & optimistic son.

  14. Anonymous says:

    I totally agree with your comments too. I wish Yunho’s father can stay silent as other members’ parents unless his statement can help instead of worsen the situation.

  15. Lydia says:

    I’m with you, a hundred percent. I also agree that people around them have no right to say anything, because only the members who know what happened. I also disapointed with what Mr. Jung said. JaeChunSu’s parents never say bad thing about Yunho and Changmin, so why he did this? What is the necessary, Mr? I don’t get it. I never hate or blame Mr. Jung for his statements because he is Yunho’s dad, but I really realy disapointed. I believe other’s parents have their own opinion about this situation, but they keep silent, so why didn’t you do the same? Please.. -_-; In my opinion, Mr. Jung only think about his son only. I don’t see that he care enough about TVXQ. And WOW, he even spoke on behalf of Changmin and his family. *sigh* I will stop here because I love and respect his son.

    I also understand why JaeChunSu take this path. Well, if they think that they can’t tolerate the contract anymore, why can’t they fight for it? It’s their life anyway. So they have the right to do what they want to do with it. I don’t see the necessary to consider other’s feeling about this. Because the most important is their own feeling. And totally agree that even I love DBSK as a group but I love the members more and I care for their welfare the most. And I never want them to come back to SM. Enough with that unreasonable contract.

    And for Yunho and Changmin. They have their own opinion. They have their own decision. So I understand them too. No need to put the blame to anyone. We fans should do is always keep the faith.

  16. nan says:

    Parents should never get involved in their children affairs because they will always be biased. Besides their children know the situation better than they do themselves. I too am a little disappointed in this letter. I was already disappointed the first time when he released the first letter in support of SM with Changmin’s father.

    I think it’s letters like these that will cause fans to think differently of Yunho. So instead of getting involved in the process he should stay silent about it like the parents of the three. He is entitled to his opinion but the case itself is already complicated any more information or opinion might as well prolong the whole process allowing for more damage to be done to both sides. If this drags out words that won’t normally be said will be said and people will get hurt. These misunderstandings if any need to be cleared up. This letter just confuses me more.

    I feel as if I should only focus on the positive news that are coming about about all 5 of the boys who are doing their individual activities. I’m glad that as a group they work hard and as individuals they still work hard. Greed? It’s something everyone of us has. Someone asked me what I would do in this situation and I can say that I can see it from both sides. But when pressured things turn out differently from what you imagine your “choice” will be.

    The whole point of me rambling is, thank you for an insight on your opinion Mr. Jung. I appreciate it. In response to your letter my opinion is that you really aren’t helping your son. The fans I feel are already divided. We do not need to push the gaps any further. I still have hopes of seeing them as 5 again so I’d rather no one say anything that might spark misunderstanding and just focus on the fact that all of them are currently working hard and persevering through these hard times. Pressure, I can already feel it suffocating people.

  17. nan says:

    Do this writer seem to be taking advantage of the situation and the DBSK name to make money for his book?

  18. maya says:

    my friend has a friend who lives in Korea and that particular friend knows Junsu’s parents well.so the friend asked his parents why HoMin didn’t join the lawsuit and Junsu’s parents said that in the first place, all five have decided to file the lawsuit together, but when the time came, HoMin didn’t. The three tried to discuss with HoMin but they refused to talk.so the three had to carry on with the lawsuit without the two.
    something like that.
    i’m not sure if it’s true, but that’s what i heard.
    the thing is, (if what my friend said is true) even if they really pulled out at the last minute and even refused to discuss with JaeChunSu, i don’t think it’s a wise idea for Mr Jung to come out with this statement.it surprises me that Mr jung does, indeed, sound brutally biased because it’s pretty obvious that he’s blaming the trio for what has happened.like you said, this can make some fans start taking sides and blame the side which they are not in favor with.
    if this continues to happen,i’m afraid a lot of things will get out of hands.
    i’m not hundred percent blaming him, though, because i bet he’s just too worried about Yunho, but if only he thought about it thoroughly before releasing this kind of statement, it would do all parties a bit of good.
    What i’m afraid of is that this kind of statement could earn Changmin and HoMin as the duo more antis,after what Mr Max Matsuura has said about him refusing the handshake, about HoMin not wanting to co-operate and all.
    and you’re right.on top of everything, i really do care about the boys’ well-being and their bond.no, i only care about their happiness right now.i don’t mind if they won’t come out with a new album anymore or get disbanded or whatever.i just hope they’ll stay as five, as brothers, and be happy with what they’re doing.i want to see them have fun being around each other anymore.even after 9 months, i still can’t imagine them living without each other.i don’t want to think how bad they feel when they cannot talk to one another.

    @maya: agreed

    When did he refuse to shake Max Matsuura’s hand? Just wondering since this is the first time that I’ve hear about it.

    I also heard from somewhere about the pulling out at the last moment thing, someone said it had to do with drama filming that the two were currently under or something like that. But I had thought that one of them was finished.

    it’s a pretty big issue because Changmin was directly mentioned and some fans started to call him bad names and all.But i think they don’t really make a big deal out of this, though.

    i agree with you cla..
    Mr. Jung has no right to blame our precious three boys.
    i believe that JaeChunSu have never mean to hurt their brothers. Also Changmin and Yunho.
    It’s really sad to see that Yunho’s father, the one who should be thinking the other members as kid too, has an opinion like that.

    “I am sure that the three members aren’t forcing the two to join them. In fact, they respected their decision and went with the lawsuit without them. I believe the three members respect Yunho and Changmin’s decision to stay as much as the two respect JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu’s decision to file this lawsuit.”

    i believe, those five respect each other and they wont force their brothers to do something that their brothers don’t like..

    i will always wait for the end of this problem and wishing them all the best..

    Keep fighting!!!

    Mr.Jung doesn’t have the right to put any blame on the JYJ ,He is the father ,but he doesn’t know how hard the boys working on those years ,and they’ve got nothing ….How can a father can live with the eyes keeping close like that ,and let the people like SME always get what they want ….

    I’m too disappointed to hear this coming from Yunho’s father.

    The entire time I was reading his letter I had to pause and think for a moment: “Wait, is he blaming JaeChunSu?” I just couldn’t comprehend that, but I understand where he’s coming from. I also wondered why JaeChunSu signed a contract, in the first place, if they did not agree with it. But I’m sure they have their reasons and I trust their decisions for what they think is best, so I’ll leave it alone and hope for the best. If only Yunho’s dad thought the same way… ;>_>

    I like what you wrote btw. Thank you for sharing this with me and everyone else.

    He’s just defending his son. I’m sure HoMin have gone through so much emotional suffering than any of us because of this lawsuit so stop bitching because you’re butthurt Yunho’s father is telling his side truthfully and it happens to not be what you want to hear. *sigh* Fans are just to blinded by the idea that their favorite idols can do no wrong…
