Junsu fans were no doubt outraged when they discovered that Junsu never received an invite to attend the '25th Seoul Music Awards,' despite raking in nearly half of the votes under the ceremony's popularity category. 


Indignant fans attempted to seek an explanation for this faux pas from 'The Minjoo Party of Korea's assemblywoman Choi Min Hee, raising their suspicions and questions regarding how the 'Seoul Music Awards' is operated. Fans directly addressed Choi on her Twitter, seeing that she was the one who had proposed the 'JYJ Law.' 


Earlier, reps of 'Seoul Music Awards' had revealed that they would fully reflect the results of the subscription-based votes, which was conducted to determine Korea's most popular star of 2015. The results showed that Junsu was the most popular star this past year as he earned 46.7%, or nearly half, of the votes.


Though Junsu clearly placed first under the popularity category and reps from 'Seoul Music Awards' had stated that they would reflect the voting results, fans failed to hear or see any news of Junsu's invitation to the ceremony. 


When fans raised this issue to 'Seoul Music Awards,' all they got was a vague response that went, "We formed this lineup based on the main prize category. We are not planning to send an invite to those under the popularity award category."

When Choi Min Hee got in touch with the 'Seoul Music Awards' organization committee, they reportedly told her, "We sent notice to Junsu's agency that we cannot invite the nominee of the popularity award." 


Choi promised fans, "It's hard to wrap my head around this situation. If it turns out that there's unjustifiable cause, I will take care of it right away like I did with the 'JYJ Law.'" 


Media outlet Insight tried reaching the committee but to no avail. 


Junsu himself has spoken up about this controversy on his Instagram, writing, "I feel terrible. Though I'm alright, if I dare try to imagine how you all feel, I resent myself for not being able to answer to all your love and sincerity. My heart is tearing to pieces knowing my inability to do anything. I owe you once again. I'm sorry." 



마음이아픕니다. 전 아무래도 괜찮지만~여러분들의 마음을 감히 헤아려본다면..그 정성과 사랑에 보답하지 못하는 제가 너무 밉습니다.아무것도 못하는 무능력함에 가슴이 찢어집니다. 또 빚을집니다..미안합니다

    Theres so much anger and frustration that's just all wrapped up in my chest and no matter how positively I try to think about it I feel like my anger will explode... a lot of people are avoiding it but we know the real reason Junsu couldn't even go. Heck even my mom knows (and she's a big Junsu fan also although she's 45) It's because if he's successful and keeps coming out on TV then a certain someone will be put in a hard place when all of a sudden people want to follow Junsu's lead and FIGHT for their freedom and rights. Junsu's really brave but sometimes I wonder how he can handle all of this, he totally won fair and square because of all Cassies and this happens, but it's not like I expected the ent world to help him out so I don't know why I feel so wronged...I guess i should have seen it coming but still

    Is Junsu the "That Person" Hani was referring to at the beginning of the awards show?

    What can you expect From kbs and sma. For me sma are the worst on the awards result compared to the other awards


    Seoul music award = kbs = music bank = sm friends = their enemy is jyj and yg ;


    No words for jyj needed. Its kbs babeh.

    Look at how mubank always make physical as a reason to not given any yg artists award.recently psy not even got 1. Meanwhile baekhyun and suzy won it with DIGITAL alone. Even other groups like sistar girls day won easily on music bank.

    I don't have much hope for korean industry, I just hope that they can go on more japanese and chinese shows, junsu already appeared on japanese eating broadcast and yoochun also appeared on chinese popular show 'happy camp', What an irony, foreign countries actually appreciate and support ;jyj more than korea, look at those yoochun and jaejoong dramas keep being repeated in tv broadcasts in japan, and tons of magazine shoots. I think one of the biggest reasons jyj survived after 6 years without tv shows is because of internet, SM blocked them from korean tv, but there are still tons of resources and their music/drama/musical clips on internet for fans to appreciate or people to discover. I wish their company will give them their own variety show or youtube channel because we really miss their dorkiness ;

    I'm a JYJ only but I support SM bands, which are really good I think. ;

    Let's being honest, we had no chance to see our King on stage, if Broadcasting channel have to choose between SM idols and JYJ, no matter how popular they are, they'll choose SM idols. I don't care if SM is personnally responsible of this, I just want to be like all other fans and see my Kings on stage, doing promotion, receiving awards and slay everyone. It's my dream and if I have to wait, I will...
