JYJ's Junsu has responded to the ongoing controversy after selling his property, the Toscana Hotel on Jeju Island.

On February 7, Junsu wrote on Instagram, "I'm leaving the entertainment world for a year and 9 months, so I thought I'd just close my eyes and ignore it," referring to his upcoming military enlistment. He continued, "However, I think it's now gone from defamation of character to character assassination. I have never profited from injustice or committed immoral conduct. Reports are making it seem as if I'm a person who took advantage to profit and left or took money from the public, but that's not true. The truth is different. I even took money out of my own real estate and accounts to pay my employees." 

He concluded, "The reason I chose to sell is because professional businessmen advised me that it was better for the hotel and the employees' future."

Though C-JeS Entertainment didn't comment previously, the agency has now come out to say, "He's very apologetic to cause fans to worry just before his enlistment because of these negative reports. However, we think it's best to correct the reports that are wrong... Once again, we want to apologize to the people who trust and love Junsu. He promises to dutifully finish his military enlistment and return."

In a statement, the agency acknowledged the Toscana Hotel was having trouble with its budget. Because of Junsu's affection for the business, he decided it was best to leave matters to a more experienced third party, especially with his enlistment coming up. C-JeS also denied that Junsu made his money and ran as he's still supporting the management and plans to continue his involvement with the hotel. In conclusion, the label asserted there was never any delay in employee payment.

Someone is trying very hard to run JYJ members reputation, it started with Yoochun and now Junsu, i m really afraid for Jejoong, both JYJ and their agency should come up with a new strategy to fight this war with SM, yes SM. Jaejoong Oppa stay strong and be careful, as for Yoochun who is by the way proved to be a great actor i hope he can make a great comeback with a new great drama and new movies, stay strong Oppa and dont let what happened make you lose faith in yourself, best of luck to all JYJ members and hopefully 2017 with be a great year for Jaejoong

Keep acting like a victim loser

dhila269 atravista Thursday, February 16, 2017

LOL u r the loser one here hahahaha!

The fact that his staff were regularly paid late is a big problem and he needs to realize that

missdi Funky_Angel Wednesday, February 8, 2017

there is no such thing - when the management had no money for salary, Junsu paid the staff out of his pocket so there was no delay for the employees! the other article was false - kmedia at its best twisting facts :(

jeanny88 missdi Friday, February 10, 2017

why management had no money for salary, does it means hotel occupancy rate so low - does it means not enough guess such a luxurious hotel like Toscana hotel? i hear he wants to build another luxurious hotel with 200 room so they said selling shares is the best way to get the funds for new hotel.

missdi jeanny88 Friday, February 10, 2017

off season there aren't many people (some hotels close for months) and it doesn't help the hotel is in an area that's not yet developed, hense the plans to expand (a fully operational restaurant, a bigger spa, indoor swimming pools, kids playgrounds will help tremendously). To do that you need money that can come form selling shares or Junsu's other activities. But Junsu just entered the military... i know as much as you...probably they have some plans for after he returns since he still has shares...

jeanny88 missdi Sunday, February 12, 2017

yeah you and me aware why he sold his share before its too late- it good to minimise his lost or may be to gain a profit - both of his way too skimming

missdi Wednesday, February 8, 2017

once again one has to fight to reveal the truth and clear his name after Kmedia false reporting... this media and the so called hotel worker should be sewed for slander and defamation of character! and aren't the haters fast to jump on this article?!?

atravista missdi Friday, February 10, 2017

haha your oppa is trash

missdi atravista Friday, February 10, 2017

no, you are

Business is hard to do anyway whether you are a celebrity or not. It is just sad that people who worked for him are now throwing him under the bus so to speak . They loved the fact that they were working for a celebrity or his family but when hard times hit they will not stand by them . Sad . It is the manager's job to make sure all is well , if the manager does not tell the owner what the issues are then , how the hell can he fix them. My family owned a laundry business  and it is hard to own a business no matter who you are . Yet again my family was directly  there each day  so nothing could go wrong. However i would say Junsu was not there everyday for obvious reasons . So i say people just want to screw him over now and take advantage of this unfortunate situation.  , which is sad . I hope he can enlist peacefully and comes back safe so we can all enjoy JYJ again in a few years . Take care Junsu , people took advantage of you being really nice and a idol. Not many owners would take their own personal money and pay employees. They pay through business account . So kudos for Junsu for ,making things right again. Sad his employees loved  working for an idol but took advantage of screwing him over in the media . sad !

jeanny88 Tuesday, February 7, 2017

I feel sorry to Junsu - he has been put his time, money, pride, to build Toscana hotel. and turn out hotel business is not as a simple as we though. I support his action by selling the hotel in the right time - profit or not it does not a main issue - he is an honest and  hard work person - its all caunt . May be hotel business was not your good choice but experience is always a big value.- KEEP IN FAITH AND PLEASE GO ENLISHED PIECEFULLY AND COME BACK SAFETY..

Family business don't usually turn out very well. Watch Hotel Hell with Gordon Ramsay, Most of the hotels in that show are run by a family and they do so horribly until Gordon tries to whip them into shape.

tomtomexo hydethislove Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Gordon Ramsey does hotel criticisms?! Wow I never knew that until now lol. I'm late

hydethislove tomtomexo Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Lol he does more then that xD You should watch it, it's intense some of the situations he gets in with the owners and workers of the hotels/Inns

tomtomexo hydethislove Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Now that's a show I will watch! Thanks!

hydethislove tomtomexo Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Do it, I love it. You just ask yourself, how can people be like this?!?!

LordLiar18 Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Tbh, i don't think he lied to his employees about the company's situation as he seems to be the hardworking and serious type. Plus he doesn't seem to be part of the management team... But when there's money and business involved, it's always complicated to judge...
