A fan, whom I met at Seoul Jamsil Indoor Stadium on May 20th when a popular group JYJ’s member Kim Junsu held his first solo concert, expressed her concern that “the reality of a competent artist with many talents being boycotted by broadcasting companies is sorrowful. I do not know until when they have to be chained to unfair restrictions and pressures.”

A middle aged female fan who lives in Yangchun-gu, Seoul asked back “is it logical that there is no television stage, which a leader of Hallyu(Korean wave) star can stand on after releasing the solo album?” and she hoped “not only Kim Junsu but JYJ members can share musical communion with the public on television as soon as possible.”

Fans’ resentments toward music programs, which shut their doors to the appearance of JYJ, is getting higher again. This became stronger after Kim Junsu’s concert.

Fans are expressing their sadness that they “cannot see JYJ on music programs although they are one of best singers regarding their abilities and presence in Korea” and opposed to this situation by saying “this (banning JYJ) is a great loss in Korean music industry” on various internet communities.

Kim Junsu honestly confessed the reality and his worry during the press conference for the release of his album: “making the album under the assumption that I cannot be on television was one of the greatest worries (I had). This is an obvious situation which made me enervated.”

Most officials/staffs of entertainment industry have the same view that JYJ being banned on music program, which already became long-term, is abnormal and deformed.

The fact that their music cannot be aired on television, despite the fact that three members have already won various suits including the exclusive contract suspension injunction against ex-company SM Entertainment and the fact that the court has guaranteed their freedom for entertainment activities including appearing on television, proves there is a group of unfair and unjust authority in the broadcasting industry.

Thus we can point out that they (JYJ) became victims of the fight for hegemony which derived from the composition of authority in entertainment industry and broadcast industry.

However, we have to cognize the fact that the channels where their music can be shared have increased and their effects surpassed the effects by media while JYJ has been completely isolated and restricted from the broadcasting industry.

Fans, who love JYJ, have increased all over the world and became more intimate. Members imprinted their presences to the public through various areas including music, drama, musical and etc. and have armed more firmly.

In reality, the music video ‘Tarantallegra,’ the title song of Kim Junsu’s solo album attracted viewers around the world as soon as it has been released and passed 3million views. Also, his album sold more than 100 thousand copies beating Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber in ITunes, Rakuten, Amazone Japan, and etc in Japan. This result is more valuable as he has achieved it without any activity in Japan recently.

Prohibition on JYJ appearing on television is no longer appropriate or persuasive. It is embarrassing because ‘neglecting’ JYJ continuously caused the exposure of unfair/narrow-minded relationship between Korean popular music industry and the broadcast industry to the global music market.

It is compromising that backwardness of Korean pop music industry has been exposed to Hallyu (Korean wave) fans. In one word, it (JYJ being boycotted) is a waste/loss for national power of Hallyu.

Maybe fans’ complaints and appeals toward broadcasting companies, which have high barriers and restrictions against JYJ, might be portrayed undersized. It might seem reckless and portrayed as throwing an egg against the rock. [TN: It is a Korean proverb/idiom which means ‘beating one’s head against a wall’]

However, the broadcasting companies, which truckled to the large authority of entertainment industry, should remember: there are many methods to break the rock/wall, and that disgusting ‘stain,’ even if it is hard to break a wall with eggs, will remain in the memory of the history forever.

and some news about Xia’s new solo album

[Argument] ‘Immortal Song,’ which lowered the entry barriers for public TV, should apply the same rules to JYJ too.

‘Super Star K-3’’s ‘mega singer group,’ Ulala Session, who set a milestone of three consecutive super saves and won the competition, chose KBS2’s ‘Immortal Song, singing the legend’ (Immortal Song) as their first appearance in public TV.

Ulala Session finished filming on April 30th for the episode Park Jinyoung of ‘Immortal Song’ and their stage will be aired on 19th. They changed Park Jiyoon’s ‘coming-of-age ceremony’ to their own colors and will contend for victory with Alli who has already won her second win on the episode on May 12th.

Casting singers with high competences…’Immortal Song’ lowered the entry barrier for public TV.

People, who have watched Ulala Session’s stages through ‘Super Star K-3,’ would have imagined seeing their stages on the public TV at least once. The reason why fans had conversation that that Ulala Session should make appearance in ‘I am a Singer’ once was because of the ‘perfection’ they show on the stages. However, ‘Immortal Song’ intelligently decided the appearance of Ulala Session.

In reality, seeing singers from cable TV on public TV was difficult until Huh Gak was on ‘Immortal Song’ as a regular. Although most of music programs confessed “Anyone can make an appearance if they are talented,” this phrase could be interpreted differently according to the interest of the broadcasting company or the production crews.

‘Immortal Song,’ however, guaranteed appearance of various singers unlike other music programs of public TV channels. During the process, it produced treasure like Alli. There were many singers like G.O and Kang Minkyung who were rediscovered. The door for participation was opened to Huh Gak and Ulala Session as an extension.

The appearance of Ulala Session is also shocking because solo vocalists sang on the stages (of ‘Immortal Song’) until now. Their appearance was accomplished although there can be problem with equity as they, who show harmonies and performance together, might get higher points than a soloist.

Anyways, the expectation for Ulala Session’s first appearance in the public TV is getting higher as they confessed they gave their all for the preparation of the stage. On the other hand, there is another group, which comes to my mind and hopes to see them making their first appearance on public TV through the music program ‘Immortal Song.’ That is JYJ.

“Competence and ability to get attention?” There is no reason why JYJ cannot make appearance”

The Kim Choong CP of ‘Immortal Song’ stated related to the appearance of Ulala Session “Ulala Session is a competent group and ‘Immortal Song’ needed a person who can garner attentions.”

This means competence and ability to get attention are the basic qualifications. Although these are not all the necessary qualifications to make an appearance, if we only look at competence and ability to grab attention, JYJ is actually the ‘tailored singers’ that ‘Immortal Song’ really needs or must cast.

As you know well, JYJ Kim Junsu’s vocal and performance abilities are beyond doubts as he was certified by musical industry. Kim Junsu, who was active in musicals as he was banned from making appearance on TV, is a ‘multiplayer’ singer who can sing ballad with his plaintive tone and perform splendid performance with dance. Kim Junsu with Kim Jaejoong and Park Yuchun proved several times during their concerts that JYJ’s stages lived up to the expectations and were excellent.

What about the ability to garner attention? Will there be any better topic if they, who are banned to make appearance just because they are in ligation with their ex-agency, made appearance on public TV? If they, who are also really popular internationally that they could even hold World Tour concert, make appearance in ‘Immortal Song,’ ‘Immortal Song’ will have a great number of international fans in an instance. When we are looking at the competence and ability to garner the attention, there is no reason why JYJ cannot make appearance.

Of course, it is still unknown if we can see JYJ through television. However, because it is ‘Immortal Song,’ we can try and we can also hope. As they have lowered entry barriers and opened doors to unknown singers or singers from cable TV, who had difficulties appearing on public TV, there will be no trouble if they apply the same ‘rules’ to JYJ. This is a part that must be reviewed for the justice for the opportunity.

If that would be difficult, what about casting him as musical actor Kim Junsu like the musical actor Lim Taekyung, who had made an appearance, instead of JYJ Kim Junsu? His stage changing constantly without being constrained in genres might be the best fit for ‘Immortal Song.’

Just the thought of having the competition between Huh Gak and Kim Junsu or the competition between Ulala Session and JYJ makes me excited already.

Group JYJ member Kim Junsu’s song ‘I dislike love’ from his solo album is getting an explosive response.

‘I dislike love,’ which attracted the attention of the public through member Park Yuchun’s SBS drama ‘Rooftop Prince’ (Script by Lee Heemyung, Directed by Shin Yoonsub), was released on various sites on 11th. The delicate piano theme and the riff with bass clarinet increase plaintiveness to the melody of Jun Haesung.

Especially lyrics like ‘like my tangled hair, my heart is also getting out of shape,’ ‘I don’t know why I loved so much and having hard time in pain for this love and you, lady,’ ‘The only love that I want to have and the love I want to abandon,’ ‘I don’t remember my smile, lips, two eyes, expression whenever I saw you,’ and etc mix well with Kim Junsu’s sweet voice and hieghtened impression.

Netizens, who listened to the song, reacted “Kim Junsu’s voice in ‘I dislike love’ is really sad,’ ‘listening to Kim Junsu’s ‘I dislike love’ in the night time increases sensibility,’ ‘I am sentimentaized over Kim Junsu’s ‘I dislike love,’ ‘Kim Junsu’s ‘I dislike love’ is really mournful,’ and etc.

Meanwhile, Kim Junsu’s album ‘Xia Tarantallegra’ proved its superiority as the server of the site during the pre-order went down and etc. Kim Junsu will hold ‘JYJ Junsu the first Asia Tour in Seoul’ and meet fans at Seoul Jamsil Indoor Stadium on coming 19th and 20th.
