With regards to the yesterday’s withdrawal of the provisional injunction, it was withdrawn due to the following case.

Currently, Avex is asserting that JYJ’s exclusive management contract termination is not valid, and used unfair influences to conduct obstructive measures against the charity event in question.

We have decided to take action against this, and from now on, will assert the legitimacy of our company in the courts of law.

About The Lawsuit Filed Against Avex Management

With regards to our company and our company’s artist JYJ’s activities, we would like to report that we filed a lawsuit against Avex Management for an injunction against the obstruction of our company’s management activities.

Our company had been planning to hold the JYJ Tohoku earthquake charity event which is scheduled for 7 June, and although we had gotten consent from the planned venue Saitama Super Arena (SSA) and sold tickets, it became a situation where the SSA homepage put up a notice stating that “it was decided that it would not be appropriate to approve the use of our venue.” The change in venue brought about inconvenience and confusion to everyone who had purchased the tickets, and we apologise for the worry caused.

This situation was a result of a message from Avex to the SSA side, with the key point being that “Without Avex as a proxy, JYJ cannot hold activities as artists in Japan,” so “we request that the use of venue for JYJ’s artists’ activities be denied,” and this was how things started.

However, our company and Avex’s exclusive contract for JYJ had been terminated on 22 February of this year, due to the non-fulfilment of obligations, and with this termination, Avex had lost their exclusive rights over the management of JYJ in Japan. Accordingly, Avex’s reason given to SSA for the request to not approve the use of their location was actually an untruth.

Our company had been in preliminary discussions with Avex, with the consideration of the fans and artists’ wellbeing as our top priority, and were in discussions with Avex with the aim of resolution. However, Avex had unilaterally announced the suspension of JYJ’s activities in Japan, and Avex had not fulfilled any of its promised management duties in Japan as per the contract for over half a year, so we were forced to terminate the contract with Avex due to breach of contract.

Despite this, Avex insists that the termination of the current contract is invalid, and for this charity event and personally, without taking any form of legal action, used their influential power as a big corporation and told untruths to the venue side from the background, utilizing unfair influences to obstruct this charity event.

In light of the abovementioned actions from Avex, our company had requested for a proper verdict from courts, and although we had been forced to seek a preliminary injunction against Avex from the Tokyo District Courts a few days ago, given the current circumstances of the charity event being just around the corner, it was decided that we would not continue with the lawsuit against Avex, as stated in the topic (of this press release).

In the future, we will be asserting our company’s legitimacy in the courts of law, but for this charity event, and with the fans’ and artists’ wellbeing being our priority, we will continue to do our best. We thank everyone for their understanding.

It has been found that JYJ(Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun) have withdrawn their provisional injunctions against TVXQ’s Japanese agency Avex for obstructions against JYJ’s concert, at the Tokyo local district courts.

On the 2nd, Avex revealed on its official website that, ‘On May 27th, C-JeS Entertainment(JYJ’s management agency) withdrew their provisional injunctions without waiting for the verdict of the Courts.’

Regarding the action, Avex stated that they were ‘were confident that this case would be dismissed’ and that, ‘Zak Corp. and C-JeS had considered that it would have been difficult for their two claims to stand, and had decided to abandon this application for provision injunction.’

Even before the withdrawal of the provisional injunctions, Avex took a strong stance on the issue as they stated, ‘The charity event for the victims of the earthquake was planned without the permission of Avex, who have the sole rights to the management of JYJ’s Japanese activities,’ and ‘We have done nothing but react accordingly and rightfully to this violation.”

C-JeS, along with Zak Corporation, had filed two provisional injunctions against Avex on the cancellation of JYJ’s charity event, stating that, ‘The actions of Avex and their obstructions against JYJ’s concert were unlawful.’

Prain, the PR agency of JYJ, stated, “The litigations were taken up against Avex to protest the violent obstructions by Avex against JYJ’s Japanese concert,” and “But JYJ are now able to perform on the 7th, bringing us to the conclusion that there is no need to carry through with the injunctions, which lead to its withdrawal.”

T/N: These are Junho’s last tweets before he deleted his account today. As you can see from the mentions he has given to some of Junsu’s fans who criticized him, the hateful tweets he received from those against him (and for some, his decision to work with Avex) had a great impact on him, leading to the deletion of his Twitter account.]

(Junho) @joni588 I just want to say one thing to you. Though I am grateful that you love and worry about my little brother, I do not believe that I think and worry about my little brother any less than you do. I, too, always pray that things will turn out well and my heart aches so much when a problem arises. I just want you to know that my decision (to work with Avex) was not one that I made thinking only of my own success.

(Junho) @zinnie06 You say that I faulted fans.. Where in my tweets did you get that impression? To you, I am a person who always causes harm to my little brother. I apologize for being such a person.

(Junho) I’m thinking of deleting my Twitter account because I think I’ll feel better if I don’t tweet in Korean anymore. Will me stopping my tweets like this make those who spoke ill of me become genial? If I just give up everything, would that make things run smoothly for them(JYJ)? I don’t know either. This situation wears me out as I can’t tell you everything about what’s going on..

(Junho) I’m so sorry to the people who have shown me their support till now. From now on, I’ll work hard and not let my mind wander to other things. I think I gained a lot of strength from your support when I tweeted while I was traveling overseas. I would like to thank you all once more. Thank you all, and I love you. Take care of your health.

(Junho) I’m not deleting this account because I’m scared of those tweets or because I’m avoiding them. I started this account knowing that things like this would definitely happen because I work in this particular industry. Because I read each and every mention that I receive and because I keep reading such tweets, I keep thinking about them and I find myself unable to concentrate, so I laid down this decision in order to completely immerse myself in my work.

(Junho) I am still such a small presence in this life. I’ll be on the same level as others only if I work harder than them as I started my career much later. From now on, I’m going to do nothing but focus on my work. I’m always short on time anyway. I will keep the hearts of those who have supported me till now in my heart and focus on my work completely without thinking of anything else. I will keep working and working hard.

(Junho) Last of all, I would like to apologize once more to the fans of Junsu who have had a hard time because of my decision. I believe that you will protect my little brother till the end. Take care of your health and be happy.

Regarding the JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN Event Application For Provisional Injunction

As stated in our press release on 28 April, in relation to the Tohoku Earthquake Charity Event by our company’s artists JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN, the organisers Zak Corporation (Zak Corp.) and JJY’s Korean management company C-JeS (C-JeS) had filed for 2 charges of provisional disposition against our company for unfair correspondence, at the Tokyo local district courts.

・ Heisei 23rd Year, No. 1115 Application for provisional injunction against obstruction of business operations (Civil Matters, 9th Dept)
Claimant (Complainant) = Zak Corp.
・ Heisei 23rd Year, No. 22020 Application for Provisional Disposition Order (Civil Matters, 46th Dept)
Claimant (Complainant) = Zak Corp. & C-JeS (Joint Claim by both companies)

With regards to the 2 counts of provisional injunction, our company had asserted its legitimacy on the issue, and we were confident that this case would be dismissed. However on 27 May, Zak Corp. and C-JeS had, without waiting for the final decision, withdrawn both claims.

Zak Corp. and C-JeS had considered that it would have been difficult for their two claims to stand, and had decided to abandon this application for provision injunction. With such facts, we can simply conclude that legally, our claims are valid.

The above is what we would like to report.

With a stream of resignations from lead roles and a failure to secure an airing schedule, the maritime drama ‘Poseidon’ has finally decided to stop production altogether.

‘Poseidon’ was a drama that portrayed the lives of the maritime police’s special forces team and became a hot topic for being Eric’s first drama since his return to the industry. It boasted a star-studded cast that included Kim Kang Woo, Kim Ok Bin, U-Know Yunho(TVXQ) and Jeon Hae Bin.

But disaster struck when the YeonPyungdo shelling incident and bad weather caused ‘Poseidon’ to halt filming for the drama in December. A further setback occurred when SBS decided not to air the drama in May and also when other broadcasting companies turned down the drama from their airing schedules.

With the filming schedule being delayed and the production company failing to secure an airing schedule, actors such as Kim Kang Woo and Kim Ok Bin resigned from their roles, and they were recently joined by the leading man, Eric, as he has decided to appear in KBS 2TV’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Spy MyeongWol’.

In a phone conversation with NoCut News on the 1st, Eric’s entertainment agency stated, “We have come to an agreement with the production company to withdraw Eric from his role in ‘Poseidon’. Since filming 20% of the first episode in December, we have been waiting for filming to resume, but as the situation became uncertain, we have decided to withdraw Eric from the production. We then decided to have him appear in the drama ‘Spy MyeongWol’.

A representative of H20, the production company of ‘Poseidon’, tersely replied, “Production has been suspended completely,” and hastily hung up.

The production company promised to resume filming in May at the latest with new cast members, but with Eric’s decision to resign from his leading role, the drama has come to an early end.

‘Joseon Dynasty’s Miss Ripley’, a historical drama parody of MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’, is garnering much interest from netizens.

Recently, a video was posted on an online community’s thread with the title ‘Joseon Dynasty’s Miss Ripley’. The video is composed of various scenes of Lee Da Hae in the KBS fusion historical drama ‘Chuno’ and Park Yoochun in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’.

It begins with Lee Da Hae confessing her identity to Park Yoochun as she says, “My name is actually ‘that girl’.”

Following this, the video portrays Park Yoochun and Lee Da Hae falling in love as it makes it seem as though the two are sharing a passionate embrace. It also shows Park Yoochun moving the sleeve of Lee Da Hae’s clothes and revealing the mark of a slave under her shoulder.

This is similar to ‘Miss Ripley’ as Lee Da Hae hides her identity and forges her diplomas, while ‘that girl’ lives as Kim Hae Won in Chuno.

Park Yoochun’s roles in both dramas are also similar as both love the female lead who is harboring a secret. These similarities were used to create such a video.

Netizens who watched the video left comments such as, “This was made so well that I got goosebumps”, “It’s so good that I want to show it to the staff of ‘Miss Ripley’”, “A truly talented individual!” and “It actually looks like the two filmed a historical drama together.”

‘Is that Park Yoochun or Song Yoo Hyun?’

The first episode of MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Miss Ripley’, Park Yoochun’s second drama as an actor, aired on the 30th.

At the airport, Song Yoo Hyun spots a small child nagging her mother to carry her. He picks the girl up as he steps in to help out. While carrying the girl to her destination with her in his arms, Song Yoo Hyun strikes up a conversation with her and smiles warmly at her, showing the ‘DdalBaBo’ side of himself. (T/N: As stated in previous articles, ‘DdalBaBo’ = 딸만 바라보다, a parent who sees only his daughter)

Park Yoochun is also known for his unforgettable fashion sense which as bestowed upon him nicknames such as ‘The King of Airport Fashion’. Song Yoo Hyun is seen wearing a hooded t-shirt, leather jacket and a backpack, and many viewers were seen commenting on the similarity between Song Yoo Hyun’s airport fashion and that of Park Yoochun.

He also succeeded in pulling at the heartstrings of female fans with his broad shoulders and innocent smile.

When the episode finished airing, netizens said, “Who’s Park Yoochun and who’s Song Yoo Hyun”, “The character fits Park Yoochun 100%” and “It’s fun to find such hidden charms in the drama.”

Park Yoochun fell head over heels for Lee Da Hae the moment he saw her.

In MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Miss Ripley’, which aired its first episode on May 30th, Song Yoo Hyun(Yutaka/Park Yoochun) and Jang Miri(Lee Dae Hae)’s fateful first encounter takes place.

Lee Da Hae plays the role of Jang Miri, who falls into a fatal pit of despair with one lie. In the first episode, Jang Miri is shown to have been adopted to Japan after being deserted by her parents when she was young, only to escape back to Korea after working at a bar.

Park Yoochun plays the role of Song Yoo Hyun(Yutaka), the son of a famous Japanese resort empire’s CEO. In the first episode, he is seen living in a Gosiwon (T/N: area where many law students flock to study) environment, stating that he wants to have the complete Korean experience, despite the fact that he is a son of a conglomerate’s CEO.

The duo’s fateful encounter occurs when Song Yoo Hyun bumps into Jang Miri as he is leaving his room during a phone conversation with his mother Lee Hwa(Choi Myong Gil). Song Yoo Hyun falls in love with Jang Miri, whose cap falls off to expose her long and wavy hair.

Later on, Song Yoo Hyun sees Jang Miri at a supermarket and feels his heart beating faster, but is unable to approach her and strike up a conversation as she has yet to open her heart up to him.

In particular he gathered attention in the broadcast of the 31st by giving a speech in fluent English for the inauguration ceremony of the director of the headquarters.

Park Yoochun recently showed off his fluency in English through MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley‘.

In the episode that was aired on May 31st, the singer-turned-actor intrigued viewers by speaking English in a scene.

He was able to smoothly deliver the rather difficult and long lines in English, speaking about his group’s vision.

Yoochun had lived in the U.S. when he was younger, and is therefore proficient in English. He is also fairly fluent in Japanese, from his days of carrying out promotions in Japan.

Meanwhile, ‘Miss Ripley’ capped off a good opening week, registering a rating of 14.3% for episode 2, an increase of 1.1 percentage points from it’s debut episode.
