JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) have made the claim that the cosmetic company enterprise they pursued made up only a fraction of their problems with their former agency.
In their recently released interview magazine ‘The JYJ’, JYJ talked of all the things they have kept locked in their hearts for the past 1000 days.
Kim Jaejoong explained the situation at the time by stating, “It’s true that we decided to pursue the (cosmetic company) enterprise. We discussed this with our company, but they forbade us to, saying ‘Legal issues will come up,’ and ‘It will restrict your CF opportunities.’ It felt like they were treating us like children. Nevertheless, we told them we wouldn’t do it.”
The members claimed that the difference in opinion regarding the cosmetic company was the beginning of their dispute, but the crux of the matter was elsewhere.
Kim Junsu said, “Even we could figure out how much we should be earning by the number of CFs we shot and the sales count of our albums. But our income didn’t change that much compared to what it had been before.” They also talked about the issues surrounding the length of their contracts. Kim Jaejoong said, “If we were to fulfill all 13 years of our contract, even excluding the years we would spend completing our military service duties, we’d be over 35 years old. We were physically and mentally drained during our activities, so much that our wish was to sleep at least two hours every day. They say that in order to gain something, you have to lose something else. But what choice can you make when you can do nothing but lose everything?”
Park Yoochun revealed the reason why they decided to part with their former agency as he added, “We told the company of what we’d like to see changed in their system, but in reality, nothing much changed. We believed that we couldn’t be with them any longer, even if it meant that we couldn’t be active as singers anymore.”
Meanwhile, the first edition of ‘The JYJ’, which was released simultaneously in Korea and Japan, contains records of the past 1000 days since JYJ’s debut. It also contains chronological records of the worldwide album, word tours, individual activities, musicals and dramas that JYJ have participated in since their debut.
