By Xiaolong:

K-pop is an extremely competitive genre, a small country with a population of merely 50 million people produces new artists literally almost every day. The industry is like a ruthless stepmother: once you make a serious mistake, it might cost you your career and more.  Career ups and downs are normal in an artist’s life but in K-pop, once you reached the lowest part, it is very difficult to climb up the mountain again. Ultimate K-pop Survival Guide will be a short series on artists who have managed to turn their failing career from point zero back again or who had gone through a lot of hardships and still managed to remain successful. Not only rookie artists but we, the audience, can also learn a lot from them.

Avoid them as if they were lepers

The first installment of the series is dedicated to perhaps the biggest survivors of the dark side of K-pop:JYJ. Everyone knows what they have been through, but it doesn’t hurt to summarize and focus on how they actually managed to cope with the situation.

For the uninitiated: once there had been an idol band we can possibly call one of the greatest successes of K-pop ever: Dong Bang Shin Ki, or by their English abbreviation, TVXQ. The five-member boyband, consisting of Jaejoong, Yunho, Yoochun, Junsu and Changmin, was among the first successful wave of K-pop to set foot in Japan, and with blood and tears, they worked their way up the ladder, from performing to a mere handful of fans to filling the 50,000 seat Tokyo Dome in rows. Their fandom, Cassiopeia, was certified by the Guinness Book of Records for being the largest official fan club in the world. They reached unimaginable heights in Asia, thus their break-up was probably one of the biggest shocking events ever to shake the world of K-pop. Not because boybands are supposed to last forever, but because they were at the height of their careers and were known to be close to each other. When the news broke out that Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu started a lawsuit against their agency S.M. Entertainment, to nullify their 13-year contract, at first everyone hoped there could be a settlement but in October 2009 the Seoul court ruled in favour of JYJ, and as a result, the Fair Trade Commission started advocating the use of ‘model contracts’ to prevent agencies from having artists sign excessive deals.

Though the social impact of their lawsuit was huge, industry players were forced to rethink the ways they were treating their artists, and JYJ emerged as a moral winner, the real hardships were to begin just then. S.M. Entertainment appealed against the court decision and a three year desperate battle took off. Not long after JYJ announced the establishment of their new band, their initial supporter in Japan, Avex, suddenly had a change of heart, claiming sole rights to manage the band in Japan, dismissing claims that JYJ’s new management company, C-JeS Entertainment, had any rights to organize events for the band on Japanese grounds. They too, ended up in a long lawsuit, during which JYJ was denied any kind of rights to perform in Japan. At the same time, all doors in Korea closed as well. The industry suddenly started treating the three young men as if they had leprosy. In silent agreement, major broadcasting stations denied them appearances as musicians. Some were claimingthat they did not wish to get entangled in court related issues.

“At the time, we had no one to speak for us, and we could do nothing but silently stand our ground” – Kim Jaejoong

C-JeS Entertainment thus had to build a different strategy to promote JYJ. With no possibilities to appear on televised music shows and variety programs, the usual promotion cycle was out of question. The possibility of failure also lingered in the air, with the artists preparing themselves for the worst: that they might not be able to stand on stage again.

The rules of survival for JYJ were as follows:

1. Keep silent. Despite the constant rumours, the extensive media coverage, part of the torn fandom accusing them of betrayal, former label mates openly criticising them for their decision, JYJ kept silent. As they expressed in their 1000 day anniversary magazine, they decided to work silently and not be shaken by accusations and rumours.

2. If you cannot enter through the door, climb through the window. As they were denied the chance to promote through television, JYJ had to look for other ways of reaching their audience. They started separate activities, Yoochun and Jaejoong became involved in television dramas and movies, gaining wide followings as actors. Junsu began to appear in musicals and in a mere three years’ time, he went from being looked at as a ‘box office bringing tool’ to a highly praised and critically acclaimed musical actor on his own right. When the nation’s main broadcasters were not willing to talk to them as musicians, ironically, they became the sweethearts of the government, appointed as goodwill ambassadors and promoters of national and international scale events like the 2014 Asian Games, and were among the few selected artists invited to perform at President Park Geun-hye’s inauguration. The latter marked their first televised performance in three years in their home country. When local record labels were unwilling to assist, they went to the US and started working with American producers, despite their lack of English skills.

3. No regrets, no complaints. In their 1000 day anniversary magazine, the band members expressed that despite all the hardships they did not regret their decision, not once.  Having faith in your decisions is important for obtaining and maintaining the strength necessary to survive. They have also never complained of unfair treatment or the lack of opportunities because of the silent ban in Korea and Japan. They just did what they had to do: work hard and smile. I believe that having a positive attitude and being able to smile at their fans was an important factor in their success. Instead of giving in to striking waves of depression and self-pity, they rose above hard times by sticking together and supporting each other.

4. Don’t lose your trust. When unfortunate events happen, one can easily feel they are no longer able to trust other people. JYJ, too, had gone through this period. When Baek Chang-ju offered his help in 2009, they did not trust him, it took them months to open up and accept his helping hand. C-JeS Entertainment was established exclusively to steer JYJ’s boat through troubled waters and it went from a one person venture to a serious agency that employs over 40 people with sales amounting to 33 billion won (roughly 30 million USD) in only two years’ time.

JYJ’s legal fights have just recently ended, but their battle is far from being over yet. Broadcasting stations are still treading carefully. Despite all the unfortunate events that had befallen them (appearances denied, concerts cancelled last minute, accusations, rumors, some of their own fans turning their backs on the band), JYJ never once gave up.

Their album, In Heaven, sold over 350,000 copies, Junsu’s Tarantallegra was one of the most successful solo albums of 2012 despite lacking in promotion, both JYJ’s and Junsu’s solo world tours were completely sold out. Their Tokyo Dome comeback concert in April this year had attracted 210,000 people altogether.

Besides part of the Cassiopeia fandom still supporting them as much as they support the duo TVXQ, JYJ gained a firm and enthusiastic new fan base as well, through their group and individual activities. Jaejoong’s limited edition mini album became  a huge success, Yoochun is virtually the most successful idol actor on the market and Junsu cemented his name as one of the best singers ever born in Korea. They are wealthier than most artists under their former agency, including their former band members Yunho and Changmin.

Were they lucky? I would not think so. Many of us would have given up such a grueling and frankly, seemingly hopeless battle against giant obstacles. What we can learn from JYJ is that you need to keep your faith, grind your teeth, work hard and believe in your own abilities. Only then will you be able to turn all unfortunate events into glistening success.

Kim Jaejoong’s group, JYJ, recently won their long lawsuit with Japanese agency AVEX.

In a recent interview held at a coffee shop in Gwanghwamun, Kim Jaejoong opened up about plans after winning the case against AVEX.

Kim Jaejoong answered, “First of all, I hope to quickly go to Japan and meet everyone with a concert.” He continued, “after that, if I can get a distribution channel and gain freedom, I want to formally release a Japanese album in Japan. If I’m free like the result of the lawsuit says, I should be able to go on broadcasts as well. It would be nice if this happens,” revealing his anticipation for activities in Japan.

At the question of whether Kim Jaejoong forgot his Japanese due to the halt on his Japanese activities, Jaejoong replied with a smile, “Everyone doesn’t know this but I’m using Japanese a lot.” When asked about the other members’ Japanese skills, Kim Jaejoong cutely said, “Aside from Junsu, everyone’s doing okay. Junsu’s Japanese has dropped to the level of a 2 and a half year old’s” and “it’s because he doesn’t use it, really!”

Kim Jaejoong released his first solo album ‘I’ on the 17th and will hold two concerts titled ‘Your, My and Mine’ on the 26th and 27th at Kintex.

(Seoul Union News) On the 18th, Seoul District Court sentenced an order to AVEX, management agent of Korea’s popular group JYJ in Japan, to prohibit the agent’s right to monopolize the management of JYJ in Japan.  AVEX was also ordered to pay 660 million yen (7.36 million USD) as reparation to JYJ’s Korean management company, C-JeS.

In addition, AVEX must pay 1 million yen (11,000 USD) as damages to the representative of C-JeS for defamation charges.

C-JeS side commented, “Japan Court’s acknowledgement of the interference of AVEX in JYJ’s activities in Japan and ruled to prohibit such actions made us very happy. With this ruling, JYJ hopes to resume their activities in Japan as soon as possible.”

While they were involved in the lawsuit with former Korean management agent SM Entertainment, JYJ signed a management contract with AVEX via C-JeS in Feb 2010. However, when AVEX disagrees with C-JeS on the scope of JYJ’s activities, AVEX began to claim that the representative of C-JeS is linked with doubtful groups (mafia, gangsters) and one-sidedly terminated all JYJ’s activities in Japan in Sept 2010.

C-JeS requested for terminating the exclusive contract with AVEX but, AVEX insisted its right to the exclusivity of managing JYJ in Japan and rejected this request.

Idol group JYJ have prevailed over the lawsuit on the exclusivity contract filed against Avex Japan.

According to Tokyo District Court, Avex should suspend the act of claiming exclusive management of JYJ in Japan. The court ordered Avex to pay reparations amounting to 660 Million JPY to C-Jes, JYJ’s management agency.

This ruling meant a lot for JYJ. When JYJ separated from TVXQ, they had to accept constraints on their activities due to various lawsuits. Last November 2009, JYJ received an injunction for the suspension of their exclusive contract with SM. They signed an agreement in February 2010 with Avex amidst false rumors like the C-Jes CEO being involved in organized crime group.

Due to the litigation, they turned to dramas and musicals. The fact that they can’t work in Japan was a major blow, despite having a considerable fanbase.

In fact, it is not unreasonable to say that TVXQ is used as the starting point of Hallyu wave in Japan. Currently, idol groups Kara, snsd, beast and 2PM are gaining popularity in Japan, but they pale in comparison with TVXQ’s popularity in the past in terms of depth and width of the fanbase.

With the court ruling, JYJ is expected to lead the recent Hallyu wave which has recently stagnated.

According to local sources, the Hallyu wave was reduced compared to before. The Dokdo dispute has contributed significantly to the decline of hallyu.

Resumption of JYJ’s activities in Japan is being viewed positively since they can target both music and drama markets. JYJ member Park Yuchun has solidified his position as an actor in his recent dramas.

Park Yuchun has increasingly gaining popularity for starring in several dramas such as Rooftop Prince, Miss Ripley, and I Miss You. His first drama, Sungkyungkwan Scandal, was successful in Japan. This will help in the resumption of their activities in Japan.

In prevailing over their lawsuits, fans are hopeful that it is the start of JYJ’s full-fledged activities. It is noteworthy that their comeback could be a game-changer and can lead to structural changes in the future of the hallyu wave in Japan.

JYJ Wins the Case: Regaining Freedom from Avex and Sm’s Vicious Connection

SM and Avex all efforts to paralyze JYJ have ended in vain. The textbook example of vicious entertainment firms’ tyranny, SM and Avex must not continue their predatory behavior according to the judgment.

 

 

SM and Avex have been behaved as a powerhouse based on their capital power, which was clearly exposed during the lawsuit with JYJ. Like gangsters, they have controlled the mess media, enfettered their entertainers, and, if those entertainers don’t act as they demand, try to sink those entertainers deeply down. All these are now known to most. Their malicious and mean behaviors frankly speak volumes about greedy large entertainment firms.

 JYJ Thwarts Mean Attacks from SM and Avex

Pointing out SM’s problems and getting out from it, JYJ have been in hard times. It was out of great courage to point out the long-term contraction, so-called Slavery Contraction. This historic action by top group TVXQ served as an opportunity for the Korean entertainment industry to correct its absurd and irrationality. In this sense, JYJ deserves praises.

 Against SM who made a contract that gave thoroughly disproportionately high advantages to the firm, JYJ has challenged to lead the contract into more rational way for more than 3 years. And JYJ has been driven into a situation in which the group was unable to appear on TV. They were not only putting restrictions on TV activities but also criticizing and maliciously disturbing JYJ. Their behaviors were dirty and shocking.

If it had been not for JYJ and its fans’ power, it would have been rarely possible to gain winning from the large firms like SM. Myriads of fans have been firmly supporting JYJ and JYJ, gaining courage from fans’ support, has astoundingly paved its own way without bending its knee.

Performing excellently in dramas and musicals, JYJ has enlarged its potential not through domestic but through overseas tour. JYJ’s hardship paradoxically served as a chance to pioneer a new market. JYJ’s struggle eventually made SM succumb. The mighty firm has even acted as if it was above the law. Mobilizing interest groups in favor of the firms, pressing the broadcast companies, and exausting every means to drive out JYJ, the mean firms came to be not able to stand any longer.

JYJ even gave up profits from its activities in Japan and continued the lawsuit, and the lawsuit has ended in totally favor of JYJ. Until the very last moment, the firm showed their greed for money, raising criticism from the public. JYJ utterly gained victory through consent by giving up money with ridicule on the firm who can’t give up its greed for enormous profits from Japan.

SM’s Japanese partner, Avex has no difference from SM. JYJ found it hard to appear on TV or perform a concert due to pressure from the two powerhouses in Korea and Japan but now its victory in Japan’s court will lift restrictions.

 “We received a short news of winning the case at 2 PM from our Japanese attorney. We’re waiting for more details about the judgment.”

After prolonged litigation, the result was JYJ’s victory in Japan. It’s surprising that the group won the case in foreign country since it was really difficult even in its own country. For Japanese part, it’s more worthy because its court ruled that the foreigners, JYJ, were treated unfairly.

On January 19 the Tokyo District Court ordered Avex not to claim the exclusive management right for JYJ in Japan. In addition, the court ruled that Avex should pay reparations of 660 million yen(7.8 billion won) to Cjes Entertainment and 1 million yen(11 million won) to chief of Cjes.

 

 As we can learn from the reparations worth a whopping 7.8 billion won, Avex in connection with SM has went all lengths to kill JYJ but ending up in a shameful situation. The naked truth of evil deeds by the entertainment firm with considerable influence in Japan was revealed in the court.

 “There were 4 cases in process between Avex and Cjes Entertainment over Avex’ artists Junsu/Jejung/Yuchun(JYJ). Today, on January 18 in 2013, the Tokyo District Court ruled on the 4 cases. Avex is protesting against the ruling and appealing against it. “

Avex made decision to immediately appeal against the Japanese court’s ruling. Furthermore, Avex still insists that members of JYJ belong to it. Once evilly trampling on JYJ in order to disturb JYJ’s activity, Avex, now stuck in the mire, is shamefully insisting that JYJ belongs to it.

In Korea, SM has maliciously prolonged the lawsuit in order to avoid paying settlement money and Avex is showing the same dirty step. Avex must pay reparations worth 7.8 billion won. So, not to pay the reparations, Avex is highly likely to prolong the lawsuit as SM did.

JYJ is now set free both in Korea and Japan. There’s no reason to endure tyranny of large entertainment firms. True, there remain possibilities that invisible hands will exert their influence to oppress the group. Yet, JYJ is now legally free and has more various ways to reach their fans.

JYJ has met its fans in a variety of ways such as solo albums, and, now is time to begin its activities in the name of JYJ for numerous fans waiting for JYJ in Korea and Japan. In the age of oppression JYJ risked everything to correct absurd practices and finally won – this is very meaningful since JYJ’s victory will prevent further same errors in the future. Gaining the triumph from difficult fight, now it’s time for JYJ to be rejoicing.

Group JYJ have now seemed to have concluded the long litigation against Japanese agency, Avex. The agency has also revealed their intentions of filing to appeal.

SM-JYJ, 3 Years of Contract Disputes, Dramatic Conclusion

Group JYJ have now seemed to have concluded the long litigation against Japanese agency, Avex. The agency has also revealed their intentions of filing to appeal.

Today C-JeS Entertainment stated JYJ won the lawsuit against former Japanese agency, Avex, as the court ruled against the agency to no longer interfere in the group’s activities in Japan along with orders to pay about 660 million Yen.

The court acknowledged of the fact that Avex has defamed C-JeS Entertainment CEO and ordered to pay a million Yen.

JYJ after the injunction against SM Entertainment in mid-2009 and signed an exclusive contract with Avex through C-JeS Entertainment. However in February of 2010 the two parties broke into conflict regarding the range of activities.

C-JeS explained, “In September, 2010 Avex announced to suspend all of JYJ’s Japanese activities and making false accusations that C-JeS president is associated with gangs.”

Then C-JeS Entertainment in response notified Avex to terminate the exclusive contract so that the group may continue activities in Japan. However Avex has been preventing the group from hold concerts and events, claiming exclusive management rights in Japan. As a result C-Jes filed the lawsuit back in 2011.

C-JeS stated, “We are pleased about the decision in Japan to acknowledge about the interferences of Avex against JYJ’s activities in Japan.”

C-JeS expects JYJ to resume activities in Japan based on the ruling.

The group JYJ finally wins the lawsuit against its Japanese agency, AVEX.

On January 18, Tokyo District Court in Japan orders AVEX, Japan’s biggest management company, to stop engage in acts such as claiming exclusive management rights to JYJ in Japan. The court also ordered AVEX to pay approximately 660 million JPY (approximately 7.8 billion KRW) as compensations for damages to C-JeS, JYJ’s agency.

Tokyo District Court acknowledged the fact that AVEX made announcements that defamed the chair of C-JeS, and consequently ordered AVEX to also pay approximately 1 million JPY (approximately 1.1 million KRW) for compensations for damages to C-JeS’s CEO.

After the injunction against SM Entertainment to terminate the effects of exclusive contract, JYJ signed an exclusive contract with AVEX through its agency, C-JeS, in February, 2010. When the two parties came into conflict regarding the range of activities, AVEX suspended JYJ’s activities in Japan arbitrarily through a unilateral notification in September 2010, making false claims about the chair of C-JeS’s connections to gangs.

In response, C-JeS notified AVEX on the termination of the exclusive contract with AVEX to continue [JYJ’s] activities in Japan, but AVEX have been interfering with JYJ’s activities such as concerts, claiming exclusive management rights to JYJ in Japan. Consequently, C-JeS filed request for prohibition of interference and claims for damages and received the judgments as described above on 18th.

C-JeS commented, “We are very pleased that Japanese judiciary have acknowledged and prohibited the interferences of AVEX against JYJ’s activities in Japan.” Also, C-JeS expects to resume JYJ’s activities in Japan based on this ruling.

JYJ have completed all legal lawsuits and have been set free with this ruling, following the settlement of the 3 years and 4 months-long exclusive contract dispute with the former agency, SM Entertainment, in November, 2012.

[NEWS] JYJ Wins AVEX Lawsuit – 7.8 Billion KRW to be paid as compensation

The group JYJ has finally won the lawsuit against AVEX, Japanese Agency, after long period of legal dispute.

“Tokyo District Court ordered AVEX not to insist on JYJ’s exclusive management right and pay 6.6 billion Yen (approx. 7.8 billion Won) to C-JeS Entertainment as compensation for damages”, said C-JeS Entertainment on JAN 18.

Tokyo District Court also ruled that “It is recognized that AVEX damaged reputation of the CEO of C-JeS Entertainment [Mr. Baek] and pay him approximately 1 million Yen (1.1 million Won)”.

JYJ made exclusive contract with AVEX in FEB 2010 through C-JeS Entertainment as an acting-agency after they had approval from the Korean court regarding the injunction to terminate validity of exclusive contact against SM Entertainment in Korea. However, when they had disagreement in opinions about the range of JYJ’s activities, AVEX unilaterally suspended JYJ’s activities in Japan insisting “the CEO of C-JeS is related to a gang of racketeers” in SEP the same year.

C-JeS sent notification for cancellation of the exclusive contracts to AVEX in order to continue JYJ’s activities in Japan. But AVEX has been interfering JYJ’s activities such as concerts, insisting that it had exclusive right for JYJ’s activities in Japan. C-JeS filed the lawsuits to forbid AVEX from interfering its business and claim compensation for damages.

“We are really pleased that Japanese court acknowledged AVEX’s interference in JYJ’s activities in Japan and ruled against them. We expect that JYJ would be able to resume its activities in Japan with the ruling”, commented a staff at C-JeS. He/she also emphasized the fact the court also ordered compensation for damage regarding its CEO’s damaged reputation, saying “It’s a shameless act to interfere the artists’ independent activities by malicious propaganda”.

JYJ also finished the legal dispute with SM Entertainment in NOV 2012, and as well as with AVEX this time which made them finish lawsuits regarding these issues.
