My heart dropped for a second while reading that title with TVXQ and JYJ together T^T ..... I bet most new kpopers don't even know who Jaejoong is! T^T

I wish there will be a moment when they all reunite but at the same time, I think of all the separations that happened in idol groups, TVXQ and JYJ's rift is personal.

I don't think that could happen... :( but I don't think all the members have grudges. Like the images of Jaejoong talking to Yunho during military service and this video

More recently, of him talking about their debut (with fond memories).


I'm probably just being delusional, but it was a long time ago

Date of releases for both of them are different. TVXQ is March 2018 and Jaejoong is Oct 2018. Based on the data above if it is for the month of October awards....So Jaejoong's single sold 100,000+ within 1 month .While TVXQ took 7 months to reach 100,000 copies sold.

Jaejoong's is single, TVXQ's is DVD. Other K-pop groups, even the popular ones barely sell over 30K.

I don't think you are accurate. It is quite common for DVD to hit 100,000 copies in a shorter period for popular Japan music for solo and group

I said "K-Pop" groups. There is only 13 DVDs that were sold over 100K in Japan, by a K-Pop group. 8 of them belong to TVXQ, 1 to JYJ, 2 to SNSD and 2 to KARA

JaeJoong is killing it despite the 8 long years of ban from the dirty sm & avex! Yet he's giving a hard time to his competitors and slaying hard on his own with his own efforts & sacrifices!! Can't be more PROUD o this man!! He deserves the whole World!! He sold more than 100K in less than 4 days not even a month!!

Are the other two from JYJ not as popular as Jaejoong? I know his a visual god but that's the #1 thing I know about him.

Xia Junsu RULES Korean musical theater - he's loved. Gets best vocalist awards a lot. Not as big in Japan, tho. Yoochun's an excellent actor and did quite a few successful KDramas. JYJ of course had to do most of their promotions and concerts in Japan (cause, SM) but JJ seems the one most loved in Japan out of the 3.
