JYJ, “Still no casting offers from TV programs… We believe in KBS’s fairness”
Even without appearance on TV programs, group JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) swept all online charts, which proves their popularity. Therefore, fans are focusing on whether they can appear on music programs.
According to Olleh Music on the 16th, [In Heaven], JYJ’s first Korean album consisting of songs revealed during their world tour, won Social Charts for 2 weeks by taking #1, #2 and #3 with its main songs.
But unlike other artists who released new song at the same time, JYJ didn’t appear on any music program, which makes this achievement even more meaningful.
Also, the album will be officially released on the 27th, yet its preorder sales reached 300,000 and it’s temporarily out of stock at all online purchasing sites. The orders are pouring in so much from Japan, China and all over Asia that the supply and demand is put on emergency alert. However, JYJ is still in the situation where they can’t be seen on any music program.
C-Jes Entertainment that is in charge of JYJ’s management said, “There is no casting offers from TV programs. But as the album hasn’t been officially out yet, we’re keeping an eye out for the situation.”
They also added. “In May, as KBS pointed out JYJ’s legal conflict with former company as the reason of the restriction of their appearance on music program, our side officially stated that JYJ’s entertainment activities were already ensured twice by the Court. KBS accepted it and said that when official album came out, TV appearance wouldn’t be problem. We have faith in the fairness of broadcast station and want to appear for the sake of many fans that have been waiting for JYJ’s album.”
But in term of JYJ’s music activities, it’s not that only broadcasts are in focus. JYJ’s music marketing official said. “JYJ’s activities in the latter half of year concentrate essentially on successfully finish their concerts in Europe as first Korean artists to perform in Spain, Germany, etc., as well as large-scale concert in Japan. Aside from TV broadcasts, we’re preparing for various ways to meet the public.”
JYJ’s title track ‘Get out’ has already reached the public through LG Electronics’ advertising and they are planning to open a video community as official channel to communicate with global fans. Also, they are preparing a charity project for underprivileged and neglected people that they had chance to meet as Goodwill Ambassador in 2011.
