This is a post I found at Dongbanger.com. It’s not an official news but rather an opinion from the writer (who I think is a fan). I just want to share it because I find it to be a really good read.

Stand Up or Shut the #$!& Up: Criticism from SM Artists Toward Junsu?

Right now, reportedly other SM artists are taking the opportunity to criticize Junsu for tweeting about an unnamed “enemy”, and about this unnamed person (or persons) showing deference to someone he thought this person saw as an “enemy”.

Well other SM artists are taking to the internet and jumping into this dispute as if their opinion at this time is supposed to mean anything when they couldn’t or wouldn’t speak up as unfair treatment was being heaped onto Junsu, Yoochun and Jaejoong.

Super Junior’s Shingdong is claimed to have tweeted in response to Junsu’s post, accusing Junsu of not being “grateful” or showing “ingratitude”.  And apparently he’s not the only one to post vague things which can only relate to the current situation between JYJ and SM.  The names of BoA, Sim Jaewon (whoever that is *eye-rolling*)  and a vague post from Sungmin have also been floating around as well.

Jaewon is reported to have written “I can’t just hold back any longer.. Hey, little brother, that’s not right at all.. Who do you think you are pointing fingers at?  Don’t act like you’re so upset.  Who’s the real one that’s hurt in here…?  So ungrateful, how could you do this?””

Frankly, if “big brother” would have stood up to SM before now, then maybe “little brother” wouldn’t have to be the one with the balls to do it.  Oh snap! Yes I did go there because somebody has to say it.

This shouldn’t even be a problem JYJ should have to deal with.  So many other “hyungs” and “noonas” have been under SM’s bootheels years before now but couldn’t, didn’t, or never even thought of putting their livelihoods on the line. Only a handful of other artists before have sued SM; one of those people – who now reportedly has financial ties to SM – has expressed criticism for JYJ’s actions. Surprise, surprise…

Most of these people shouldn’t even open their damn mouths about whether Junsu is grateful or not because he started giving his life to that company when he was 12 (if I remember the bio correctly).  That’s half his life already. He’s been training longer and harder than most of the people who are acting a damn fool about his twitter post. So, while they can express their opinion, they have no real basis whatsoever to even question Junsu’s intentions.

At a certain point, the gratefulness… the indebtedness… is repaid in full.  The amount of time Junsu has given to SM, the amount of money that golden voice of his has generated for SM is repayment enough for any indebtedness he may have felt.

Because someone once gave you an opportunity, does that mean you should be “grateful” to them until you draw your last breath? Even if they control you (until you’re no longer useful to them), take most of your earnings, and bash you in public if you so much as question them?

Maybe someone should tell certain members of certain other groups that a person can be “grateful” without being a glorified slave.

… I’m sure there are people genuinely grateful to Kim Jong Il too…

Furthermore, I didn’t hear a damn positive word from these people on any other subject in relation to Junsu or JYJ since this whole controversy began.  They apparently never made posts congratulating Junsu or JYJ on their debut in America, or their sales, or the fact that they’ve ventured into twitter-land, or anything.  But when they want to criticize him, they run their happy asses to the web and act like they have something glorious to say now.  F_ck that.

If they supposedly were so close to Junsu waaay back in the day, then allow Junsu his breathing room in a situation like this until it is resolved.  Them commenting about him is NOT like us commenting about him.  They’re not some random dudes from off the street whose opinion has the same impact (or non-impact) as our opinions.  And they should take whatever blow-back they get as a result because they should have stayed out of it.

I’ve NEVER heard of Junsu posting anything even remotely derogatory or hateful about anyone else, in any other group, on any topic.

Junsu could be calling all of them cowards for talking about SM behind SM’s back and not having the courage to stand up to them; not that Junsu would ever do that. Or he could be accusing “them” of turning their backs on his friendship because he chose to fight when they didn’t, not that Junsu would ever do that either.

Junsu could have thrown your asses to the wind and spoke about some of the bad things he’s heard these people say when they were all going through tough times at SM.  But Junsu isn’t doing any of that.  He didn’t even name anybody in his tweets!  These people don’t even know for certain who Junsu is talking about!  I mean, seriously!

Talk about loyalty! Is there any loyalty to Junsu, Jaejoong and Yoochun?  JYJ probably treated some of these people like treasured “hyungs” and listened to their complaints about SM.

Friendship is like flowers and cotton-candy when everybody is the on the same level and hard decisions have not been made. But it’s times like this when you can see the full depth of a friendship.  You don’t have to root for JYJ, but don’t try to trip them up either.

Remember that saying, ‘its always darkest before dawn’. If that holds true, then JYJ must be getting ready for a massive victory because this current $hitstorm blew up out of nowhere, specifically when SM apparently decided to market “TVXQ” as a new 2 member group and alienate its humongous fanclub.

I don’t blame Cassiopeia for making certain painful decisions after being cornered and alienated by SM.  But again, all of that includes people actually involved in direct actions from SM.  However, to jump in the middle of this dispute, and even REMOTELY appear to be criticizing Junsu for trying to understand the actions of some unnamed person he thought he was on the same page with, is unacceptable.

All of this, ALL OF IT, is just further confirmation to me that these guys are destined to do the things that other people are too cowardly to do.  Whether or not you agree with their method of suing SM, if that was the only way to start this journey then so be it.  There has been a cascade of other information revealed about SM and it’s practices, but nobody wanted to say or do anything in this recent cycle of hopeful kids until Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun spoke up. As a result, people like Hangeng (who may have also been feeling enslaved) followed their path and opened up a place for himself as a result.

And I will NEVER look unfavorably on someone who has the balls to put their lives, livelihood and respect on the line to stand up for themselves.  If you can take the SM rule, then keep your head down and go about your business.  But I despise the actions of anyone who actively criticizes someone whose fight could end up making their own lives better as a result.

110107 JaeJoong was Overwhelmed with Emotions, Why?

“I am grateful even if the interest shown is small” It can be seen that they have been going through a hard time.

Junsu expresses his disappointment towards DBSK through Twitter.

JaeJoong from the 3 member group JYJ was choked with emotions for a moment.

This was during the 6th when they had dinner together with reporters at a hotel in Seoul. They went to all the tables and made their greetings. JaeJoong’s emotional reaction was during the final greeting.

On this day, JaeJoong, together with the other members, expressed their thanks to the reporters who had been supporting them in JYJ’s activites. He was unable to overcome his emotions during that moment. After expressing their thanks, he saw every single reporter out individually and JaeJoong repeatedly said, “Thank you.”

In July 2009, JaeJoong, Junsu and YooChun left SM Entertainment and carried out their own activities on their own.

After the legal battle, the remaining members of DBSK are now starting new activities.

Junsu said, “I will try my very best to make this year a better year compared to last year.”
YooChun too added, “I would like to thank those who have been showing us even the smallest amount of interest.”

JaeJoong said, “Thank you for always showing us interest even though we are lacking and so many of you came today, thank you.” while saying this, he became overwhelmed with emotion.

One representative explained the reason for JaeJoong’s uncontrollable emotions, saying, “It has been a long time since he has met so many reporters and because so many turned up, I think he was touched.”

The two members of DBSK who recently released an album and JYJ are clearly going on different paths. In the midst of this, interest is growing regarding the expressed thoughts of the members.

DBSK expressed their thanks to the head of SM Entertainment, Lee Soo Man, in the “Thanks To” section of their new album. With regards to this, Junsu tweeted, “I thought we had the same enemy. It seemed like it wasn’t the enemy for all of us. It seems like many things happened during the time when we weren’t together. Even though we are separated, it wasn’t supposed to be like this, hyung! Didn’t we have the same thought.” expressing his feelings of emotions.

Also interest is increasing regarding YooChun’s recently released lyrics to his self-composed song.

“It was an imprisonment which wasn’t meant to be an imprisonment for us. Extreme tears, loneliness, rage; all of these made us united as one. Even if anything were to happen, we said that we would not leave each other. I will turn my back first on you who have already changed.”

People are also under the impression that in the lyrics of the new song by DBSK seem to contain a hidden message directed at JYJ. “I will erase you from my heart completely and proceed on to a happy future. In the distant future, you will realize how genuine the love that you deserted was.” The lyrics contained such warnings and resolutions.

In any case, on this day, we could see how hard it has been for them. In the future, while supporting them in their activities, we are curious to see how this inherent discord will be resolved.

110108 JYJ’s SBS ‘Good Morning’ Show is Rescheduled, Yet Again

It seems JYJ fans have to wait a little longer to watch their idols on SBS ‘Good Morning’ show.

Yesterday on January 7th, the official twitter of SBS confirmed that the ‘Good Morning’ show broadcast that features JYJ appearance is rescheduled, yet again, to January 20th.

The tweet said, “SBS ‘Good Morning’ featuring JYJ broadcast schedule has been adjusted to January 20th. We deeply apologize for this sudden notice. The PD-nim said that the perfect highly potential broadcast day for the 80 minutes show would be on January 20th as he explained at his bulletin post.”

Furthermore, ‘Good Morning’ PD Jo Dong Suk wrote an official reschedule notice at the show’s bulletin post. The PD explained that while the production team had been organizing the order of broadcast schedule, suddenly on January 7th at 15:00 entered the news about The parliamentary confirmation hearing of the nominees for chairman of the Board of Audit and Inspection that would take place on the 19th. Therefore considering that the breaking news is rather more important to be broadcast earlier, JYJ broadcast that lasts for 80 minutes has to be delayed to a more stable broadcast day, and the perfect day that could be settled was the January 20th.

I received an email from Steph, one of the frequent readers of this blog. She asked me to post this info on getting JYJ to come to Australia for their world tour 2011. An entertainment company named Epik Entrtainment is keen in getting JYJ to come to Australia but of course, like any other company, they would like to see an estimate of how many people wants JYJ to come to Australia and watch their concert. So what are you Australian Cassies waiting for? You guys are one step closer to seeing JYJ perform live! Don’t let this chance pass and show Epik Entertainment how much you want to see JYJ in Australia! :)

Below is the email Steph sent to me:

Hello everyone again!!!

This is exciting news — the boys (JYJ of TVXQ/DBSK) are starting a world tour from next March *adjklasj;eihe!!* and there is an entertainment company
(Epik Entertainment) this time which is very serious about getting them to Australia!!!

Just think, if there is a BIG RESPONSE TO THIS, then there is a GREAT POSSIBILITY that OTHER KOREAN ARTISTS such as Super Junior, BoA, SHINee, SNSD, f(x), Jay Park, 2PM, 2AM, Wonder Girls, MissA, Big Bang, 2NE1, KARA, SS501, Beast, 4minute, MBLAQ might ADD AUSTRALIA TO THEIR TOUR list as well!! :D Now I know you want this…

LET’S GET INVOLVED AND GET JYJ HERE!! :D

Now I know you might be thinking..yes, I do love (insert above band’s name) but I’m not so interested in going to a JYJ concert, so if I ‘like’ this page below..it’s not a good representation of how many people want JYJ to come here..

If this is your view..listen peoples::

A facebook page is only an indication of a very small pool of people who want JYJ to come here – if it was guaranteed that they would be coming, there is no doubt that they would fill a stadium (a few times over most likely – they have proven themselves as the most successful group Asia-wide!). In New York – they sold 3000 seats but 7000 people turned up outside the stadium on the day!!! ONCE AGAIN, I’ll reinforce that if we can just get them to come here…it gives A LOT of hope for other artists!! SO LET’S DO THIS!!

Now “what can we do to bring JYJ here?” you may ask. Well it is very simple! A two step process actually!

– step 1: click on the following link:http://www.facebook.com/jyjaustralia
– step 2: click the ‘like’ button on that page

And that’s it! As simple as that! We need at least 10,000 likes to get them to Australia so tell all your friends!

Promote on your facebook, twitter, blogs, at your school, workplace, wherever! Because we need as many possible attendees as we can get!

Lets bring JYJ to Australia because WE EXIST! HWAITING!!

Always Keep The Faith!!!

110105 Jeon In Hwa States, “I’m YoungWoong Jaejoong’s Ideal Woman? That Kid Has Good Taste”


Actress Jeon In Hwa revealed her daughter’s jealousy over JYJ’s YoungWoong Jaejoong.

On KBS 2TV’s ‘Kim Seung Woo’s On A Roll (승승장구)’, Jeon In Hwa stated that that she became the receiver of her daughter’s jealousy after YoungWoong Jaejoong revealed that his ideal woman was the actress.

Jeon In Hwa explained that, “One day, my daughter came up to me and said ‘Mom, you’re so lucky’ with an expression of dissatisfaction.” It had been that her young daughter was overcome with jealousy because YoungWoong Jaejoong confessed that Jeon In Hwa was his ideal woman.

Jeon In Hwa, who didn’t know who YoungWoong Jaejoong was at the time, aroused laughter from the guests when she added that, “My daughter showed me a picture of him and my first thought was that he’s such a handsome boy. My daughter kept muttering and saying things like ‘YoungWoong Jaejoong’s eyesight must be bad’ but he made the right choice. The kid has good taste.”

On the other hand, Jeon In Hwa chose Hyun Bin as her ideal man and revealed that she would like to work with him if she was given the chance.
