JYJ’s Kim Junsu Says, “This Was A Battle Against SM, Not TVXQ”

JYJ’s Kim Junsu recently opened up about his group’s exclusive contract nullification lawsuit. Kim Junsu met with reporters on the 29th at a hotel in Essen, Germany and when asked about the possibilities of TVXQ getting back together now that JYJ’s lawsuit with their former agency SM Entertainment has ended after three years and four months, he stated, “I lament the fact that I’m not able to introduce myself as a member of TVXQ.”



Though it wasn’t a direct answer, it seems as though even he sees the chances of TVXQ getting back together again to be low. Kim Junsu stated, “I, too, find this situation to be unfortunate because I entered the entertainment industry and started out as a singer through TVXQ,” and “Though the situation is unfortunate and regrettable, the title of ‘TVXQ’ will always remain in my heart and I believe that other people, and not only myself, will remember and never forget the five years that I performed as a member of TVXQ.”

He continued to add, “Nothing will ever be as memorable and fill me with joy than if I could stand on stage again as ‘TVXQ’ one day.”
Kim Junsu didn’t hide his affection for TVXQ as he said, “We were fighting a battle against our company (SM Entertainment) and their unlawful practices; it wasn’t that we wanted to throw away our title of ‘TVXQ’ or leave ‘TVXQ’.”

He feels the same way about the name that introduced him to the world, ‘Xiah’. Kim Junsu stated, “When I perform in musicals, I use my real name of Kim Junsu. Regardless of what name I use, I give people my all to repay them for remembering me and coming to see me. But I started out as ‘Xiah’ and I would like to keep performing under that name as a singer.” Though Kim Junsu made his debut and became famous as TVXQ’s Xiah Junsu, he has no longer been able to use that stage name since beginning his lawsuit against SM Entertainment.

When he released his first solo album in May, he released it under the name ‘XIA’, which was his name ‘XIAH’ from his TVXQ days without an ‘H’.

junsu ):

while this doesn't really...change anything, it does reinforce the point that this battle was always JYJ vs SM, not JYJ vs Yunho & Changmin.

OP maybe you can add this? http://www.allkpop.com/2012/11/jyjs-junsu-talks-about-the-end-of-their-legal-battle-with-sm-entertainment

I was just making a post about this but even if the content is different since the context is the same I don't know if it'll be approved.

Anyways, this is depressing.

I was waiting for a statement like this to come from JYJ after SM said that they didn't want to be a part of DBSK anymore so there was no point to drag it on longer.

NGL, I felt like SM saying that was the one last "fuck you" to JYJ because in the end, even if the lawsuit was against SM, regardless, JYJ are no longer members of DBSK :( They're simply JYJ and now it's final.
earthequality 30th-Nov-2012 01:37 am (UTC)
I think SM tried to be the "better person" by saying that when I just felt it made the whole issue petty because if it was that simple, it would have been done ages ago.

Then submit some other news~ We're always open to accept posts, people just aren't submitting any other news.

Now that this is over with, I still hope they'll be able to eventually greet each other as TVXQ and JYJ on one stage.

Junsu <333

Sigh... Some form of closure is finally here! So strange that it's finally happening.

Hopefully everyone finally moves on. Support whoever you want to support, whether it's 5, 3, or 2, and wish everyone else the best.

from what i've heard, they were originally meant to leave sm together but homin changed their minds for whatever reason.
i think perhaps they were trying to follow in shinhwa's footsteps in the sense of leaving the company but still sticking together

I totally dig the hair. Werkin' it.

Looking absolutely flawless in that picture.

Nothing will ever be as memorable and fill me with joy than if I could stand on stage again as ‘TVXQ’ one day.

“I don’t know if it will be possible for us to appear on variety shows through this result. We always dream about it, but I want to ask all you reporters, do you think we can?“

I love that he threw that question back to the reporters. Good move Junsu.

But seriously, the drama surrounding this is getting annoying. Can't this fandom just lighten up, stop fighting and just enjoy the bloody music already.

If the cockblocking would just stop, everyone else would move on with their lives. It is that simple. Wish the best to both parties minus SM. Yeah, I don't like the management...

Always love it when Junsu openly speaks his mind on the serious issues--so earnest and... considerate. He seems especially warm-hearted when talking about the darkest stuff.

I welcome the barrage of JYJ-related posts.

To the folks who are complaining about it and don't care about TVXQ/JYJ... calm your tits. This will pass. These guys are the ones who cut a path and set the standard for all your oppars and unnirs. Seriously, they sacrificed a lot to try improving the industry for the next generations and are finally beginning to see it pay off. It's a big deal, whether you care about them directly or not.

Skip the posts if you're that bothered.
Let us enjoy this bittersweet celebration of their success.
