Biography

South Korea (2010 – present)

JYJ (previously known as JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN) is a trio, formed by former members of the South Korean boyband 동방신기 / 東方神起 (TVXQ) : Jaejoong (영웅재중/김재중), Yoochun (믹키유천), and Junsu (시아준수).

The three members of TVXQ filed a lawsuit in mid-2009 against their South Korean record label, SM Entertainment, arguing that the 13-year length and structure of their exclusive contracts as well as the terms of profit distribution were unilaterally disadvantageous towards the artists and should be invalidated. The Seoul Central District Court in October, 2009 ruled in their favor on this matter.

Following the hiatus of TVXQ, the three member group was announced under the name of ‘JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN’ in April 2010 by Rhythm Zone. The trio kicked off their activities with a Japan Tour ‘THANKSGIVING LIVE IN DOME’ in May and June and appearances at the annual A-nation lives in Japan during the summer. The trio also released a personal travel documentary of all three members titled ‘3HREE VOICES’ and a mini- album, ‘The…’.

In September 2010, Avex Entertainment announced the suspension all of JYJ’s Japanese activities. Avex claims this stems from issues the label had with the president of the group’s Korean management, C-JeS Entertainment.[4] JYJ stated it was a conflict over new terms demanded by Avex in contract renegotiation.

The group released their English-language global debut album, The Beginning, under the name ‘JYJ’ in October 2010. A worldwide album showcase tour was announced, touring Southeast Asia cities as well as the United States. A 2-day special concert ‘JYJ Worldwide Concert in Seoul’ was held at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium from November 27-28 after the World Showcase.
