It has been found that the TVXQ trio (consisting of Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun) already knew beforehand of Avex’s decision to halt JYJ’s activities in Japan.

Through JYJ’s homepage, Avex announced that “Avex will be stopping JYJ’s Japanese activities for the time being.”

Regarding this, JYJ’s spokesperson Prain stated that, “We were already aware of JYJ’s Japanese agency Avex’s decision.”

Following this, they added that, “We are currently discussing the finer details,” and “We will be releasing an official statement tomorrow morning.”


Prain also stated, “This will have no effect on the trio’s new album that will be released mid-October.”

The Korean company currently responsible for managing JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN's activities in Japan is C-jeS CO.LTD. It was reported that the legal representative of this company has been taking advantage of his father's previous status as a gang leader to threaten and coerce the artists under its label. He has already been has been found guilty of, and sentenced to prison on charges of coercion. With regards to the allegations mentioned above, Avex has conducted thorough investigation, and whilst there is no legitimate evidence to prove for certain that the said legal representative has links with the mafia, reports on threats and coercion were found to be true.

At the same time, there is a possibility that JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN's contract with Avex may be voided as a result of developments in their Korean exclusive contract lawsuit.

Avex holds heavy regard for both the legal and ethical implications of its management guidelines, thus until a clear resolution has been found, we will discontinue our management of the trio's activities.

To fans who have continued to support JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHN, we would like to express our apologies for the concern and apprehension this news must have brought you, but we hope that you will understand the decisions we have made.

There will be no changes in our plans for scheduled releases and ongoing activities. Similarly, no changes will be made to the contract we have negotiated with SM Entertainment for Tohoshinki's activities as a 5 member unit. Avex will continue to work towards the comeback of Tohoshinki, just as we have done in the past.

Avex announced on 16 September that Tohoshinki members Jejung, Yuchun and Junsu’s Japanese activities with be suspended until further notice.

Avex expressed that the management company the trio’s management company and legal representative in Korea, C.JeS, has been found guilty of, and sentenced to prison on charges of coercion. As the trio’s lawsuit in Korea with regards to the exclusive contract is still pending, the chances that the exclusive contract is invalid has increased.

Avex stated that until these issues are resolved, they have decided not to continue with the management of the artists’ activities in Japan. The trio, for the time being, have decided to halt all activities.

T/N: We are currently trying to verify this piece of news with our Korean translator.

I have a good friend who used to be a Cassiopeia. She was one for a good three years until she gave up on our boys and moved on to another group~ (aish~~ back when she was a Cassie, I wasn't one~~ I only came to 'meet' TVXQ in 07~)

One day, when I went to her house, I was shocked by the sight before me as I stepped in. On her desk was a glass board completely filled with pictures of our boys… there were at least 30 of them. I asked 'I thought you didn't like them anymore, why do you still have photos of them?'

My friend replied 'They're my mom's. my mom is kind of obsessed.'

I thought she was joking, so I didn't think much of it ~

Then my friend brought me to her parent's bedroom, and wow, it really was something else. The wall was covered with TVXQ posters and there were photo frames on her vanity as well as her bedside tables. Everything ini there was TVXQ, and that wasn't even the end of it. Her mom's favourite member is Jaejoong and so there was a photo of my friend's parents and Jaejoong. At first I thought they'd met him and taken a photo with him, but then I found out that she'd actually photoshopped the picture. I was completely in awe, that's some amazing skill right there!!!!

After that we went to look at the CD racks. I took a look and noticed that 80% of it was TVXQ CDs, there were even DVDs of the banjun theatres. I asked where she'd got them and my friend said that her mom had made them herself. (Isn't that just amazing, 45 year olds should not be able to do that)
Her mom had more DVDs/VCDs/CDs than I did.

Just as my friend and I were talking, her mom came home~~
As soon as she realized we were talking about TVXQ, she said 'Why aren't you watching their banjun dramas?? They're really really good, especially 'Dangerous Love'. It's Yunjae, oh my lovely boys!'
And then she went to cook…

She went into the kitchen and put on an apron before coming back out with a watermelon and sitting down to watch the banjun dramas with us. She didn't even realize she was supposed to be cooking dinner. As she was eating, she talked me through the upcoming telephone booth Yunjae scene. And as if that wasn't enough, she was so excited she had to put down her slice of watermelon and slam her hand against the wall to act out the scene for me~~ (I couldn't hold back my laughter anymore. I'd actually watched 'Dangerous Love' before and I knew the plot already, but because she seemed to fired up, I just lied and said I hadn't seen it. In the end, I was watching my friend's mom more than I was looking at the tv. She really was addicted… we're both TVXQ druggies~~)

As I left my friend's house, I asked her 'Doesn't your dad get jealous?' and she said 'He's gotten used to it. My mom is so obsessed with them she doesn't care about me anymore. She's always like 'oh my Jaejoong, oh my Yunho, oh my Junsu, oh my Changmin, oh my Yoochun…' (At this point I was completely speechless)

The mom mentioned in this is 45 years old ^^

After watching Junsu's 3Hree Voices dvd, an Australian fan decided to tour the places Junsu visited when he was in Sydney. She included the name of the shops and roughly where they are located just in case if any of the DBSK fans plan to visit Sydney and want to go to places Junsu went to.

Read more about it!:

Hey guys~ so, after watching Junsu’s 3hree voices part in which he went on a vacation to Sydney, my friend Aveline and I decided to go on what we call ‘Junsu Tour’ ourselves. Yes, that is how much we adore him. Besides, since I will be leaving Sydney soon might as well go to places and eat things I have never eaten before in Sydney. Junsu in his vacation to Sydney actually ate at places I’ve never gone to before.

Of course we didn’t go to all the places he went to, some we just walked past, some we just can’t be bothered to go.

Firstly I met up with Evi at Chatime Railway Square branch and we actually walked from there to The Rocks area. It wasn't that short of a distance but we enjoyed the walk anyway since the weather was actually very nice today and we get to have a long catch up chat during.

So for this Junsu Tour pictures which I'm uploading here on this blog, I’m just gonna try and follow the chronological order of Junsu’s actual 3hree voices trip like in the DVD.

In the DVD, Junsu went to a place that sells deep fried mars bar wrapped in coconut batter.

That place is actually located in Bondi beach and the shop is called Bondi Surf Seafood and its fried mars bar has actually always been a famous sweet dessert and everyones' favorite.

Below is Junsu enjoying his fried mars bar which he claimed to be tasty!

and this is the close up of the fried mars bar which he had,

Actually after living for more than 7 years (almost 8 now) in Sydney, as a Sydney-sider I have never once had this famous fried mars bar myself! How shameful. So this time I took the chance to actually give it a try. I mean come on, even Junsu (who came all the way from S. Korea) had tried it but I as a local Sydney-sider have not? So I decided to buy one and shared it with Evi.

Actually it didn't look as aesthetically pleasing as the one Junsu had on the screencap but believe me it was the same thing! Just that Junsu had better lighting lol but yes, this is the famous Bondi's fried mars bar everyone! and yes it definitely tasted as yummy as how Junsu claimed it to be. "Sinful" though, as how Evi described it.

Junsu then checked out a 'Ripcurl' store since he needed some beach-y attire to go play in the water.

OT: OMG those two super lucky Aussies seemed to be COMPLETELY clueless of who just walked past them! IT'S XIAH JUNSU! Star of Asia!

This store is actually just a block away from the Bondi Surf Seafood shop where he had his fried mars bar!

Ok la so since we were already in Bondi we might as well go check out the store and absorb in some Junsu essence that's left in the store (mwahahahah it sounded like something that creepy obsessed fangirls would do lol).

It looks like they already restock some stuffs since Junsu came to Sydney in January where it was summer. Now that it is winter all the stuffs they are selling seem to already change. Was actually trying to find the ripcurl sleeveless shirt that Junsu got from the store and his grey-ish short but couldn't find them. So they have probably changed the items in the store.

Then the next scene in 3hree voices was when Junsu had his lunch at 'The Australian Hotel'. We then decided to visit this place and have something for lunch in here as well.

The Australian Hotel is located at The Rocks, not so far away from the hotel where Junsu was staying when he came to Sydney. In fact, it was only one or a couple of blocks away from the hotel. To be honest, if it wasn't for Junsu lunching at this place I wouldn't have the thought of ever lunching there! Anywho, it turned out to actually be a pretty good place to eat.

Cute Junsu trying to read the menu in English. I love how he pronounce Pepper Kangaroo Pizza kekeke! Totally adorable!

This is actually what he ended up trying!

At first we were going to try the same thing, but we remembered how Junsu didn't quite like the food. Not wanting to risk wasting food away we decided to try the Chicken Pizza...

There were two chicken pizzas in the menu, one being the Tandoori Chicken and the other one was Honey Mustard Chicken Pizza. Forgetting that the pizza that Junsu had was white-ish looking and not red/orange-y we ordered the Tandoori Chicken instead of the Honey Mustard one which I think what Junsu ordered last time.

Since we ordered the small size we decided to also order some garlic bread with it.

Despite how we ordered the 'wrong food', a different chicken pizza to what Junsu had, the one we ordered actually tasted VERY nice as well! In fact, a couple of passerby commented on how nice it looked and one of them even stopped by and asked what we were having! It was actually surprisingly nice. I honestly didn't expect it to be so it was good!

After lunch we decided to walk off the calorie by walking around Circular Quay and The Rocks area (it was afterall where Junsu spent most of his time in Sydney anyway).

Just a block away from The Australian Hotel, the place where we were lunching at, is Sydney's Shangri-La hotel where Junsu stayed at. Ahh.. memories of waiting for him outside of this hotel still quite fresh in my mind :) (WE FREAKING MISS YOU JUNSU! >_<)

I suppose this is what it looks like from the suite inside the hotel. Goodness... it must cost a lot just to stay one night in that room (with a freaking shiny black grand piano in it and a view of the opera house!).

Actually Junsu's part in the DVD ends here, however in the DVD Digest it was shown that Junsu actually went to eat Kangaroo steak and was resting at one of the cafes near the opera house. So since we were gonna catch a bus back to Central station where Evi parked her car, might as well take a detour since the weather was really nice today anyway.

This is the scene when Junsu was enjoying his kangaroo steak.

We couldn't be 100% sure whether we actually visited the right place because they never show us the name of the place in the scene. However Evi felt that she recognized the background and decided to check it out.

We arrived at this fancy restaurant still in The Rocks/Circular Quay area called 'Waterfront' and it actually looked strikingly similar to the background of the restaurant Junsu went to. However strangely when we checked out the lunch menu it didn't have that so called kangaroo steak. We couldn't be 100% sure about this place but I'm actually quite convinced that it was the place.

Last but not least...

Remember this very cute scene from the DVD Digest where our Junchan was resting?

At first I wasn't quite sure where the place was since there are a lot of cafes along the circular quay area however after a closer look, I finally was able to identify exactly where it is (as there was the name of the cafe shown)

It's the Portobello Caffe located just right next to Oyster Bar!

The view was very nice there plus the wind really sets your mood at peace. No wonder Junsu fell asleep like that. Oh and probably he had been very tired too since he probably didn't get much rest due to filming.

Anywho, with this last picture I conclude our Junsu Tour!

Overall, it has been quite a fun experience since Junsu actually went to places I never been to before. Aside of reminiscing the time when Junsu was in Sydney I actually get to experienced a couple of new things: 1. the awesome tandoori chicken pizza and 2. fried mars bar!

So yay! I hope Junsu also had fun while staying in Sydney and would want to come back here again sometime in the future ^^
