U.S. visa application is denied, yet the concert showcases progress normally despite difficult challenges, JYJ chose to keep his promise to share a stage with the fans .
On the past 12th in the morning, group JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) got their US performing Visa (P1) denied, hence the normal progress of their showcase wasn’t able to continue. Regarding this matter, many entertainment industry officials threw concern gaze as it would be a burden for the group to step in United States known as world’s largest music market without performing visa.
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…)
Well its come to this
After sadly cancelling their Hawaii tour due to issues with Yoochun’s visa it seems disaster has struck JYJ in the worst way possible as their entire US tour has been cancelled for the NYC, LA, and Las Vegas shows.
Despite many foreign artists having easy access getting visas to perform in America something went wrong with all of the member’s visas and because of that officials have prohibited the boys from performing and gaining from profit.
The guys are clearly devestaed and have been in NYC for a few days, and it was revealed that tickets to the concert are now free (although you can’t buy any) YES that’s right FREE
See JYJ pushed the boundaries in appreciation of their fans and have decided to pay everything themselves (just think how much their losing) in order to not disappoint their fans.
For now you can go to this website and sign up for new info about the free tickets BUT if you bought your tickets already you will get a special VIP line to the venue (get to go in first) AND you will get your money back
Fans…have been shocked/angry NOT because the concert has been cancelled but because of the reason
Some have been speculating SME in one way or another had something to do with this but others are simply saying that because JYJ was being managed by Cjes Management a company that is currently in a lawsuit that’s why their visas got denied.
In either case its really sad to see a group like JYJ who in January were TVXQ have fallen this hard in their careers because of “issues” though fans and NON fans are admiring the group for their selfless dedication to not disappoint their fans.
Yesterday Hawaii fans were disappointed to learn that JYJ would be cancelling their tour stop their because of “production issues”
Their publicist stated
Dear Cherished Cassies,
We regret to inform you that the Hawaii show has been cancelled due to production issues. We are very sorry to our Hawaii fans and are very discouraged, but are trying to stay strong. Our production friends in Hawaii did the best they can to put on the show and did not want to disappoint the fans.
For those of you that have already purchased tickets for the Hawaii shows, you can contact Ticketmaster directly for a full refund at ticketmaster.com.
Amidst all this, we are happy to say that Entitled Entertainment – the management team handling the NY, LA, LV shows – are certain to put on an amazing experience for the JYJ fans.
Thanks for being the best fans in the world and keeping the faith alive.
This “issue” turned out to be Yoochun’s fault because of visa issues and the fact he had been dealing with fatigue since the start of the World Tour.
Coincidentally though only a few days ago the boys had decided to sing at a much smaller venue with their excuse being they wanted to be “closer” to the fans…..
When JYJ’s Jaejoong bent down wearing a see through shirt at a recent fan meeting he revealed his latest tattoo which has sparked the interest of many fans for its content.
See the thing is even though when Yoochun got his tattoo with the names of only Jaejoong and Xiah fans had thought he was excluding his other TVXQ band mates Yunho and Changmin which later turned out to be false.
But in Jaejoong’s case unless he’s got a magic trick under his sleeves its pretty obvious he decided NOT to include Yunho and Changmin leaving only his current group mates Yoochun and Junsu to be included in his tattoo.
Its pretty strange they would decide to do this but JYJ has made changes to their US Tour stops dropping some cities and replacing others
Changes on JYJ’s official site reveal that the Seattle tour stop has been replaced with Las Vegas as well as San Francisco being dropped for Hawaii.
The group’s publicist, Melissa Lam released the following key points as to why this was decided
1. It is too punishing on the members physically and mentally to do the back to back gigs and specifically for the US leg, we are taking into consideration possible jet lag.
2. The change was made in lieu of tremendous feedback received from Japanese fans who have asked if we could put one stop in Hawaii for them since Japan was not included in this tour.
3. We wanted to make sure that all JYJ fans will be able to get a ticket to the showcases and hence we told promoters that we need a minimum of a 5000 pax venue for each stop. Due to constraints at the former locations, this can only be accomplished with the new tour stops added. (with the exception of NYC which needed to be locked in as press activities for the stop has been confirmed).
On October 8th, it was announced that the JYJ album release date would be postponed.
Originally scheduled for October 12th, the release date has been pushed back to sometime between October 14th to 19th, with the exact date to be announced on October 11th. The explanation for the delay has been stated as “circumstances faced by the entertainment agency”.
Despite the delay, the production company has made a statement that all pre-order payments must still be received by October 11th. Any nonpayment by that date will result in the cancellation of the order. (more…)
TVXQ fans! Lesley, JYJ’s US publicist, has sent out a call to all of us, in every country! In the United States, the media tends to only invite guests who have already “made it” in the US. What they don’t know is just HOW popular Jaejoong, Junsu, and Yoochun are both here and worldwide! If TVXQ fans could write beautiful letters and post them in the mail to show with our hearts how much they love them and want them to succeed in the USA, then I think the American media would be moved (and intrigued!).
Find out how after cut (more…)
The trio of JYJ, Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu, created a 6.8 billion Won ($6 million USD) record in one day, demonstrating their immense popularity.
The group’s debut album, “The Beginning”, which will be released on the 12th, is aimed towards a global advancement. The record was made due to the album pre-order numbers and tickets for the showcase at Korea University Hwajung Gymnasium.
With only 99 999 copies of the special luxury edition, a total of 400 000 orders were received, so under such an intense purchasing circumstance, everything has already been completely sold out. (more…)
This is really only for the asian fans but its still nice to look over it if your curious over how the USA tour will go!!
A press announcement will go out this week on confirmed venues in HK and the US plus full ticketing details on agents and where to buy tickets. We would like to apologise for the lack of ticketing information thus far. This is because our promoters have been caught off-guard by the passion of Cassiopeias and BigEasts and are now scrambling to find larger venues to accommodate the fan-base.
They will abide by JYJ’s guidelines to keep prices realistic for all fans. We ask fans to be patient for the next 2-3 days. Thank you
Below is the latest updated FAQ for your information. (more…)
Seems like everyone is JYJ crazy!
It seems that 99,999 copies of their exclusive Luxury Edition of The Beginning was not enough for the fans that left many in the dust.
JYJ’s company Warner Music Korea, spokesperson Wang stated, “We have received over 300,000 pre-sales orders from suppliers worldwide and are currently trying to allocate the 99,999 CDs in stock to first orders received. The overwhelming response to the CD is a very encouraging start for JYJ and we hope that this album release will also be met with equal enthusiasm.”
It was also revealed that their Seoul concert sold out in 15 minutes with employees saying “Fans inquiries were overcrowded before the tickets were available, and as soon as tickets were available, there was an unprecedented struggle for tickets.”
In the meantime the boys have opened another site for the Seoul Concert www.jyj3.com which includes a teaser of the tour
Check it out after the cut (more…)
Woah this is too amazing to believe (and is probably a rumor)
According to Synnara Records naver site, JYJ are going on the David Letterman Show!!!
Here’s the translation
“More exclusive than the fact that Kanye West and Dark Child are featured in JYJ’s album~ They (JYJ) will be going on the David Letterman show and sing a song at the ending. It will be the first time for a Korean to go on the show. (at this rate, it doesn’t seem impossible anymore that JYJ have a good chance of succeeding on the billboard charts.)
This is epic!! Shoot if ONLY they were to appear on Saturday Night Live too cause from what i’ve seen anyone who sings that show becomes the newest music sensation afterwards! (more…)
Micky Yoochun’s KBS 2TV drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ has finished its shooting schedule coordination.

JYJ wil be releasing their first worldwide album ‘The Beginning’ on October 12th. As members of TVXQ, it is predicted that Micky Yoochun, Youngwoong Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu’s new album will be a big hit on the market.
TVXQ’s previous album ‘Mirotic’, released in 2008 sold a record-breaking 500,000 copies, yet it is likely that that this record will be broken with the release of the trio’s new album. (more…)
Even though the US has for the most part been blessed enough to get some Asian artists to visit, for the most part when it involves its usually always a NO GO with things like SME Tour and other such K-pop events, like say JYJ’s so called World Tour where the group will be doing concerts in both Asia & North America
But of course Europeans are none too happy with being ignored BUT fans have now started a project called “Let’s put Europe on the map!” where they sent out various e-mails and the fan coordinator of JYJ’s tour (Monica) responded to their emails. She stated that they would like to see how many European fans actually exist and how many are willing to travel through Europe to attend a possible concert. (more…)
Hmmm this is interesting but isn’t the name JYJ still owned by Avex?
Apparently after revealing a few months back they would be working with Kanye West to release an album the group’s album will be called THE BEGINNING and get this its gonna be their first English album!!! (more…)
Even though its been nearly a month since JYJ has left avex it seems that avex has had no problem whatsoever cashing in on whatever they can from what’s left from the group, and one specific thing being their 2011 calanders which has caused fans to call foul in their actions. (more…)
There has been great concern in Korea after news went out that Dong Bang Shin Ki trio Micky YooChun, Hero JaeJoong and Xiah JunSu had left their Japanese agency. (more…)
Even though EJUNG, YUCHUN, JUNSU have decided to split from Avex, it has been revealed that both Yunho & Changmin will NOT be leaving Avex as well!
Things have now turned ugly for both JYJ and avex as now JYJ’s lawyer is throwing some nasty accusations at avex while avex’s CEO is none too happy with it
In an interview on the 17th, the trio’s legal spokesman and lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk revealed that, “Avex requested changes in the contract that the members found difficult to agree to in clauses regarding topics such as income distribution. (more…)
Say it ain’t so but according to new reports AVEX the no.1 J-pop money maker and shelter home for JYJ has turned out the be main culprit towards the group’s halted activities SUPPOSEDLY because they TOO were starting to get greedy!!! (more…)
The Thoughts of Lyricist for “Itsudatte Kimi ni”
Up to that time, I only watched Tohohoshinki’s performance on TV. Of course I was aware of their popularity and wanted to work with them, but working with them is something unbelievable even to imagine. Since “Itsudatte Kimi ni” is the opening song for the live and it contains deep meaning, I thought that the first word of this song should share the same feelings with their fans. Although it is a love song that tells a story between two people, the song also sends an important message to drive away the worries of their fans who were upsetting due to the various rumors and reports. (more…)
The first live DVD of Tohoshinki’s members JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN “THANKSGIVING LIVE IN DOME” (rhymthzone, released on 9/8) sold a total of 119,000 copies in the first week, snatching the top spot of Oricon DVD Weekly Chart. (more…)
