JYJ's Junsu shares his deep desire to appear on tv broadcasts again & approach the public

JYJ, Junsu (XIA)

JYJ member/musical actor Junsu continued to discuss what being unable to appear on tv broadcasts means to him in his solo interview, in light of his upcoming return concert '2018 Way Back Xia Concert'. 



Next year will mark Junsu's 10th debut anniversary as a musical actor. He said, "It's true that my heart goes more toward my musical promotions nowadays. If I could release an album and have the chance to perform my new songs on a music program on tv, I would be able to put more heart into my promotions as a singer but I can't do that. I wasn't able to perform a song on tv broadcasts for the past 6 years. The only time I was able to was during an EBS program. I feel very apologetic toward my fans, as even when I release albums, I cannot appear on music shows or promote through various programs, and my only means of album promotions is a solo concert. So I try my best to incorporate different stages at my concerts. But at a certain point, you become tired and hit your limit. I had no idea I wouldn't be able to go on broadcasts for this long. We won a favorable ruling in court and there are no problems, so I can't understand why my broadcast promotions are not allowed. Some people ask me, 'Do you not like going on broadcasts?'. But not going on broadcasts, and being unable to go on them, are two different things. I can say this with certainty - I cannot go on broadcasts. And this reality is frustrating." 

The JYJ member then stressed his deep desire to return to tv broadcasts again, in order to approach the public. "When I release a new album or have a new musical, I want to go on a few broadcasts a year to simply promote my activities, like all of the other singers and actors. Nothing about me has changed. Which means that to the public, their image of me is stopped in time at my broadcast appearance from 6 years ago. I have no way of showing viewers my real self. And when a malicious news report goes around, I end up becoming a person who has changed for the worse, a bad person. I have no second chance... This makes me tired of life, and makes me sad. I just want to go on broadcasts to tell my personal story, and show the human Junsu. I want to do my best, for my fans."

It's so sad and messed up. I don't care how people feel about the TVXQ/JYJ situation, this is just plain wrong. SM uses their influence to make an example out of JYJ members. I feel like they do it to make a warning out to their artists: This is what happens when you cross us or don't leave on our terms. It's the same for Jessica, even though they try to say it was an amicable split, even she can't go on broadcasts for her music that she releases. It's absolutely messed up, but they do it to make certain that no one even puts one toe out of line. I sincerely feel for him, part of me wants him to keep his head up and keep going, but at the same time, I understand and empathize with him feeling like it's a losing battle. So unfair, I love many artists from SM but Sooman is ruthless man who will probably never see retribution for what he's done to artists who didn't leave on his terms.

Truthfully, at first i really feel sad, angry, disappointed, etc when the split happen. But after some times, listening to their reasoning, I can understand and accept their decision. They just make a decision for their own future just like any other human being in this world. I already found peace with the issue. Now I decide to just enjoy all tvxq/jyj member work.


It is really sad that this kind of thing happen until now. That feeling of frustration..all his fan can feel it too. If you ask my opinion, their split is not really a problem. No party/member should be blame for making their own life decision. The only problem is with their former company. The most wrong decision that sm made is when they use underhanded way to block them.

I can understand their frustration .They did nothing wrong... went thru the proper legal channel won and yet this is happening to them. it is like someone is so afraid to let them realized their full talent and potential. That someone will loose out more to them if it let them compete on equal ground. So the fact glaring at us ...these 3 boys from JYJ are just too talented and destined to be so popular and well known even with such oppression.There is so much jealousy and fear on them to succeed on equal ground.

It is not so simple as this explanation. Most companies pay the station to gain a place on TV broadcasts. So here politics is involved. There is pressure used by sm to stop them .It is about SM losing face to a bunch of youngsters dare enough to seek redress for injustice. Here again Money play is important.Simple equation. If JYJ is allowed.. SM will lose in term of its status and money .. And we are talking about big money ( as in the stock market )

JYJ is doing well without any promotion tbh they have a solid fan base, but only if they can appear on music show and variety shows JYJ would get to reach a new fan base it's a shame that SME is still denying they ain't blocking them while we all know they do have an influence on the tv stations decision.

Even though JYJ won the lawsuit years ago, it's so fucking funny that they still can't appear on Korean TV, because of 'their old agency influence'

Of COURSE we want Junsu to be able to promote on TV again!! This has been the most cruel, not to mention totally illegal ban orchestrated by SM we've ever heard of. I can't imagine how this has been allowed to continue this long. But it must end now, it must. Junsu is among the most gifted performers in SK and the people of SK deserve to see him.

Guys, I know this might sound insane, but imagine - just imagine - if instead of acting like a petty mf, agencies were to use their power for something useful??? Crazy, right?

it's a shame that SM cockblocked JYJ like this for so many years.

It's even more shameful that the tv-channels are so afraid of SM that they don't dare to invite JYJ on their shows.

Oh, you can turn that right around - I expect Changmin & Yunho's decision to STAY hurt the other 3 a lot.
One thing to note - DESPITE SM being dicks for years over this, Junsu RULES musical theatre in SK, Kim JaeJoong is a rock god and sells out concerts (with little promotion in SK remember), and Yoochun had a solid acting career before his scandal (which was partly a set-up - hmmmm). JJ also has a decent acting career. All 3 of the JYJ members have a strong career in Japan and are millionaires several times over. So SM failed completely to ruin them.

haha Yunho could have just acted as a true leader & left with his members as Shinhwa s Eric did! JYJ lawyers back then said that he was expecting five people but only 3 ended up showing! Who stabbed/hurt who here!! They were all supposed to leave but the two were fearful & rather to stay!!!

no.... even though I respect both side's decisions, JYJ hurt MORE from this. Thankfully, JJ is now the top earner in Japan, and Junsu sells out his musical every single time. Yoochun was having a fantastic acting career until the scandal.
