Although Avex has held on to a contract with TVXQ and JYJ for around 4-5 years now it seems that’s all about to change cause as they say “out with the old in the with new”
With JYJ’s contract officially over with avex the company has their eyes on Japan’s 2nd most popular K-pop male group, Big Bang
See although BIG BANG is currently part of Universal Music Japan (where rival groups from SME like SNSD are) rumors have it the group is planning to join avex and replace JYJ.
Avex already has a contract with 2NE1 so it wouldn’t come as a surprise if this were to occur in order to keep the YG “family” united.
In either case if this does occur it sadly seems the TVXQ/JYJ Dynasty will officially end as Japan makes way for BIG BANG Era.
THOUGH NOTE: people aren’t just gonna forget about TVXQ overnight, Big Bang has been in Japan for over a year and the group has yet to crack at no.1 single or album, and it took TVXQ 5 years to achieve a no.1 with their last album and it took them 3 years to get a no.1 song SO ITS NOT THAT EASY (more…)
Big Bang has recently received tons of invitations of Japanese programs, including an offer to perform at a large award ceremony, but they rejected all of them and why you may ask??? Why do to work on their upcoming K-pop album!
YG revealed We’re very thankful for the interest in Big Bang from the Japanese music industry. However, because of a stubborn problem, they will not be able to accept any invitations.
Its been a while but Big Bang is back to promoting LG only this time there doing it with the help of the smurfs!
Its unclear just why the surfs were picked to particpate with the group but something tells me it has to do with their upcoming movie.
