The group is working for the songs to release the new album in 2 years after Jaejoong, Yuchun and Junsu have focused on individual activities since its album <In Heaven> in 2011.

The three achieved remarkable performance in their individual activities last year. Jaejoong Kim showed his presence by his drama <Dr. Jin>, film <Code Name : Jackal> and the 1st solo album < I >. Yuchun Park swept end-of-year drama awards with his drama <Rooftop Prince> and <I Miss You>. Junsu Kim also won the Best Actor for a Leading Role at 2012 Korean Musical Awards, and proved himself as No.1 ticket-selling actor with <Tears of Heaven> and <Elisabeth>.

This year seems to be the group’s activities by riding the momentum gained from the achievement that raised JYJ’s own brand equity.

Meanwhile, the members’ individual activities are in a row for a while. Jaejoong Kim is heading to his Asia Tour after the concert with fan-meeting event in KINTEX, Ilsan, on JAN 26 ~ JAN 27. Yuchun Park is on the moves for CF and fan-meeting after the drama <I Miss You>, and Junsu Kim is having break-time and working for the new songs at the moment.

[NEWS] JYJ Wins AVEX Lawsuit – 7.8 Billion KRW to be paid as compensation

JYJ Wins AVEX Lawsuit – 7.8 Billion KRW to be paid as compensation

JAN 18, 2013

The group JYJ has finally won the lawsuit against AVEX, Japanese Agency, after long period of legal dispute.

“Tokyo District Court ordered AVEX not to insist on JYJ’s exclusive management right and pay 6.6 billion Yen (approx. 7.8 billion Won) to C-JeS Entertainment as compensation for damages”, said C-JeS Entertainment on JAN 18.

Tokyo District Court also ruled that “It is recognized that AVEX damaged reputation of the CEO of C-JeS Entertainment [Mr. Baek] and pay him approximately 1 million Yen (1.1 million Won)”.

JYJ made exclusive contract with AVEX in FEB 2010 through C-JeS Entertainment as an acting-agency after they had approval from the Korean court regarding the injunction to terminate validity of exclusive contact against SM Entertainment in Korea. However, when they had disagreement in opinions about the range of JYJ’s activities, AVEX unilaterally suspended JYJ’s activities in Japan insisting “the CEO of C-JeS is related to a gang of racketeers” in SEP the same year.

C-JeS sent notification for cancellation of the exclusive contracts to AVEX in order to continue JYJ’s activities in Japan. But AVEX has been interfering JYJ’s activities such as concerts, insisting that it had exclusive right for JYJ’s activities in Japan. C-JeS filed the lawsuits to forbid AVEX from interfering its business and claim compensation for damages.

“We are really pleased that Japanese court acknowledged AVEX’s interference in JYJ’s activities in Japan and ruled against them. We expect that JYJ would be able to resume its activities in Japan with the ruling”, commented a staff at C-JeS. He/she also emphasized the fact the court also ordered compensation for damage regarding its CEO’s damaged reputation, saying “It’s a shameless act to interfere the artists’ independent activities by malicious propaganda”.

JYJ also finished the legal dispute with SM Entertainment in NOV 2012, and as well as with AVEX this time which made them finish lawsuits regarding these issues.

With this ruling in Japan, it is expected that JYJ might resume its activities in Japan where the group has high popularity.

[Review] Proves why his tickets are always sold out: Junsu Kim burst out his singing ability at Ballad & Musical Concert

[Review] Older or little brother who’s great at singing and acting – Proves why his tickets are always sold out : Junsu Kim burst out his singing ability at Ballad & Musical Concert

JAN 02, 2013

http://media.daum.net/culture/art/newsview?newsid=20130102031504041

The expression ‘Sold Out in a couple of minutes’ is just meaningless when you talk about this singer. About 20,000 tickets had been ready, but more than 200,000 fans wanted to get the tickets. 21,000 tickets of ‘XIA Ballad & Musical Concert with Orchestra’, held by the 27-year-old star Junsu Kim (XIA Junsu), were all sold out right after the sales begun on the Interpark Website at 20:00 on Nov 04, leaving a record of 200,000 marks of simultaneous log-ins at the same time.

After his debut on the musical <Mozart!> which made 45,000 seats sold out at Grand Theatre of Sejong Centre for Performing Arts, many idol singers stepped into musical industry, but no one has ever been able to shake the industry like him so far. The concert on DEC 31 showed why Junsu Kim is not just an ordinary idol, but the superstar.

The venue was Hall D at COEX, Gangnam in Seoul which holds about 7,000 seats (per a day). The concert continued for about 3 hours, started at 22:00 on DEC 31 and finished around 01:00 on JAN 01. There were various Korean dialects, Chinese and Japanese at every part of COEX building before 3~4 hours of the concert and mid-aged women with a suitcase were every corridor of COEX too.

The performance started with ‘I am, I am Music’ and ‘I want to get out of my fate’ from the musical <Mozart!>. He continued with ‘The Last Dance’ from <Elisabeth> which made him the winner of the Best Actor for a Leading Role at 18th Korean Musical Awards, and also sang ‘This Is The Moment’ from <Jekyll and Hyde> saying it is one of the musical he would like to do some time. The emotion and appealing expression based on outstanding natural singing ability were enough to prove that his success in musical (that singing becomes acting itself) was not a just luck.

His manner of controlling the atmosphere was also outstanding by playing on the audience with a lot of requests from them. “I became 27 years old, and it makes me feel like I became grandfather as an idol singer!”, he joked, but also made the venue almost collapsed by cheers of the audience when he said that “I would burn myself no matter how hard the dance may be, if I could be able to be on TV”, after the stage of ‘Tarantallegra’. On that day, for his fans, before the superstar, he was the role model who was standing firm against hardship and external pressure, older brother[‘OPPA’ in Korean] who they must support for his victory and little brother who they should take care of.

The special guest of the concert was his mother. He invited his mother to the stage saying “Today is the day that my dream comes true”. Before he debuted as a singer, he had promised his mother whose dream was becoming a vocalist to make her dream come true when he became a singer. His mother shed tears of gratitude after singing together with her son.

Meanwhile, his next musical is still remaining uncertain. While this year’s almost every big musical is longing to be chosen by him, it was rumored that he would perform for <Elisabeth> again in July, however, his management C-JeS Entertainment announced that his comeback to musical was not decided because the time of JYJ’s group activity is up in the air at the moment.
