YoungWoong Jaejoong's Twitter has been caught in a fake identity scandal.
When the continuance of TVXQ was questioned after YoungWoong Jaejoong, Xiah Junsu and Micky Yoochun, through the firm Sejong, released their official statement regarding the unlawful contract with SM, and SM released a rebuttal back, YoungWoong Jaejoong wrote on his Twitter page that afternoon stating that, "TVXQ will go on as it always has." But some TVXQ fans are stating that, "YoungWoong Jaejoong's Twitter does not belong to him but it belongs to a fan using a fake identity."
The fans who gave this statement said, "YoungWoong Jaejoong's Twitter is fake. The Korean fans already know this and see this as a problem. It is probably a hardcore fan who is using a fake identity." They also said, "It seems that the person wrote 'TVXQ will go on as it always has,' because they were worried about the continuance of the team."
Another fan added that, "YoungWoong Jaejoong must be going through so much emotional pain right now. How on earth would he be sitting in front of a computer typing this?" and agreed that a person must be using a fake identity. To register on Twitter, one only needs to give one's name and username. One's real name does not need to be used and there have been a lot of controversies about fake celebrity identities. Other fake identities were found to be impersonating Son Dambi and Huh Kyungyoung.
On a side note, TVXQ's fan club Cassiopeia has put forth a petition entitled 'Against TVXQ's disbandment' and till now (August 4th, morning) the petition has gotten over 19,600 signatures.

I... have no words.
YoungWoong Jaejoong's representative told Money Today Star News on the 4th that, "It was YoungWoong Jaejoong who wrote the post on Twitter," and "YoungWoong Jaejoong himself confirmed that he was the one who had written the post."
Through Twitter, YoungWoong Jaejoong posted something along the lines of, "Many fans are concerned that TVXQ is going through a rough patch," and "But TVXQ will go on as it always has. Please keep watching us. We love your support."
This is the first time Jaejoong has made a statement himself, without passing the message through his representatives. But there was a scandal that the person who wrote the message was not YoungWoong Jaejoong, but a hardcore fan impersonating him.
TVXQ's Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun, who filed for a suspension of their exclusive contract against agency SM Entertainment, released their official statement on the 3rd which stated that, "The members do not wish for TVXQ to disband."
