110429 “Why Prevent Aid For Earthquake Victims?” Japanese Fans Raise Objections To Cancellation Of JYJ’s Japan Event

JYJ’s Charity Event for the Tohoku Earthquake was cancelled due to the big Japanese corporation AVEX, and the Japanese fans have stood up to raise their objections to this.

JYJ’s management company C-JeS had recently applied for an injunction to the Tokyo District courts claiming that “Avex is using inappropriate means to prevent the concert from happening.”

In relation to this, C-JeS, via their company homepage, left a message for the Japanese fans saying “For the sake of repaying everybody for their love, we planned a charity concert in hopes that we would recover from the Tohoku Earthquake as soon as possible. However, even though we pushed forward with the thoughts of wanting to do whatever we can, regardless of our intention, the cancellation of the concert, as well as other troubles occurred.  The tickets had already been sold, and to everybody who had been looking forward to the concert, we apologise for the inconvenience caused.”

Following that, they also said “When I thought about the Japanese fans who had been waiting for JYJ’s performance for a long time, I decided that we cannot showcase a slipshod performance. We considered cancelling the performance, but to keep the promise that we made to the fans who have been silently waiting and believing in JYJ, we decided that the performance will go on.”

The local Japanese fans have also voiced strong objections to this. On 19 April, the Japanese fans submitted their collective viewpoint to Avex, saying “In September of last year, Avex announced that JYJ’s activities would be suspected, robbing us JYJ fans of the opportunity to listen to them sing.” “During this period, the fans have been waiting for JYJ to resume activities in Japan, but so far, Avex has yet to give us a proper explanation for the suspension of their activities.”

Furthermore, the Japanese fans pointed out that despite Avex’s suspension of JYJ’s activities, they had continued to sell JYJ’s albums and DVDs, as well as other issues. Fans said, “As fans and consumers, we deserve an explanation for this contradicting situation. If the situation cannot be improved, please resolve the contract issues as soon as possible, and return JYJ to us!”

Finally, the Japanese fans said, “We hope that Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu can walk freely on this new musical path, and fans can freely enjoy their music.” “This petition has nothing to do with either C-JeS or the 3 members of JYJ, and it was not discussed with them beforehand, and is purely the opinion of the Japanese fans.”

A related personnel said, “This is different from the active methods of the Korean fans, who have put up numerous advertisements so far. Till now, the Japanese fans have always been very quiet. However, this incident is due to the fact that the Japanese fans are no longer able to tolerate Avex’s obstruction of JYJ’s activities in Japan.”

With regards to this incident, the Avex side announced on 28 April that “Our company had repeatedly raised strong objections to the C-JeS side, but they still decided to push forward with the ticket sales.” “As we hold the exclusive rights, it is only natural that we take proper action against such acts of (rights) infringement.”
