110721 [Radio21 Part 2] Lee Jae Eun States, “We’re Preparing An Album And Tour For The Second Half Of 2011′

Following Reporter Kim, Department Head Lee Jae Eun of Prain, the company in charge of JYJ’s PR, showed her frustration as she said, “The part that we find hardest to accept is the broadcasted program’s original intent.”

“When JYJ received the offer to appear on the program, we stated to KBS Jeju, ‘If there is a possibility that our artistes aren’t properly protected against external pressure, we will not make the decision to have JYJ appear in the program,’ and we were given the reply, ‘That will never happen. This program is a special program that is designed to promote Jeju and how could there be any issues when JYJ are the island’s honorary ambassadors?’ But four days before the performance, when we had already received the cue sheet, KBS Jeju gave JYJ a unilateral notification of cancellation.”

Department Head Lee stated that this issue has already been reported to the Fair Trade Commission and that they’ve already received an official document stating that the report has been accepted. Lee stated, “The investigator who has been assigned to the issue has stated that there is enough evidence for the case,” and emphasized, “The problem is that this isn’t the first time something like this has happened; the problem keeps recurring over and over again. The Courts have already laid down the verdict that JYJ’s former agency must pay a compensation fee if it unlawfully obstructs JYJ’s activities, but these strange events keep occurring.”

Lee said, “C-JeS Entertainment has sued and filed a lawsuit whenever any unlawful event occurred, no matter how big or small it was,” and “They will all become pieces of evidence that we will use in the lawsuit against JYJ’s former agency.” She stated, “We have done all we can on this issue and we will do our best to get the verdict out for the main lawsuit as soon as possible,” but drew the line as she said, “We are not raising an issue against JYJ’s position as honorary ambassadors or Jeju Island itself.”

JYJ are currently preparing for an album release and tour for the second half of this year. Lee stated, “Because they’re so globally recognized, they’re a large-scale group and we’re looking at the second half of the year as a whole,” and “It hasn’t been long since their first world tour so we were thinking of taking a breather, but because love calls are flooding in from Korea, Asia, Europe and the Americas, we’ve decided to go right into preparations for their next tour.” They are also preparing for JYJ’s second worldwide album.

When asked of the current emotional state of the JYJ’s members, she stated, “They are more dignified and brave than anyone else. They’re doing well down the road that they’ve set their sights for.” She also added, “But they are extremely worried for their fans, who have to endure such unjust acts for the mere reason that they are fans. They are trying to act more dignified about everything for the sake of their fans.”

“The feelings that the three members of JYJ have for their fans are special. And the pride they feel for their fans is immense. Seeing them say ‘Our fans’ in every statement they make shows us that they’ve become stronger after surviving difficult adversities. We would like to sincerely thank the fans who love JYJ’s music and the three people’s dreams and we hope that the fans don’t feel too disappointed and hurt by the current issue.”

Last of all, Lee stated, “We have received support from fans as well as the public in general, including the citizens of Jeju Island through this issue,” and “We are thankful in a way as this issue became an opportunity for us to show the world that JYJ are fighting an unlawful contract.” She ended with, “Since this event is unrelated to promoting Jeju, JYJ will continue to do their best to promote the beauty of Jeju and the superiority of Korea.”
