always keep the faith (shikonira) wrote in omonatheydidnt,
always keep the faith

JYJ tells it like it is, haters keep hatin'.

When you need us, we’re family, but when we need you, we’re strangers.”

JYJ’s latest album,”Their Rooms, Our Story,” was finally released today, and as many predicted, lyrics from a particular song has been causing some buzz in the media due to its negative portrayal of SM Entertainment.

Titled ‘Untitled Song Part 1,’ the song was self-written and composed by member Yoochun. According to Korean media outlet, Kuki News, the lyrics state:

After finally being met with jackpot success overseas and finding out that we had created unimaginable results, I headed to the company on the day of our pay with light steps. But on the statement of accounts that I received that day, the results were a minus. I thought maybe I read wrong and checked again, but everything was written as an expense. Damn, all that money was written off as expense. Exactly what kind of expense was it that all that money disappeared? I still can’t forget the higher representative’s words that told me that it would be difficult if I left the company. What the seniors said were right: Would you want to keep the ones that still willingly want to make money for you?

It continues, “This is never our efforts as a product. The day I die as a human being. It’s an effort made because I don’t want to be left with regrets.

The album is currently ranking in on the ‘Top 5′ of weekly best seller charts.

Junsu's Story

Hi, friends,
Will you listen to our story?

We were children with many dreams.
We loved songs so much,
Sang from heart,
Wanted to meet many friends.

Through the days of sweaty practice and white nights in the recording studios,
We had families who suffered together and numerous friends.

Finally, we could see the fruits of our efforts of blood and sweat
With our own eyes and hands.

Worrying our behavior would hurt the family’s heart,
We carefully behaved and followed family’s words unconditionally.

Family always told us.
Don’t look at the world outside and block your ears from the sound heard.
Everything is estrangement, everything is a lie.

And then one day,
So many facts were exposed.
We, still children with grown body, were so confused with the facts,
And could not control ourselves.

In no time we became adults.
We looked at the world even when asked not to look at,
We listened even when asked not to hear.
We grew to the age that can tell what was the lie and what was the truth.

The family we have known till then
Was not the family as we had thought.
Our hearts were bruised and minds got sick.
Could not believe anyone
and changed to a situation that we never imagined.

We gradually realized,
Looking at ourselves who were changing and losing dreams

This is not where we should be.
There should be wider and brighter world.
If there is not, we will make it with our songs.

Out of the fence of the so called the family “who is not the family”
We decided to make a new nest.
A nest that can heal our hurt soul and dream.

We are now making our nest.
Our friends became family
And have numerous new family.

Despite the interruption of people who used to be family,
With the help of new family
We can sing again.

The first day we came to sing again
Tears did not stop.

We wanted to sing again and make songs.
Now we can meet family only on stages,(note: not on tv)
But we are doing real love as our heart leads.

Now we know.
Only those who love people and trust people
Can dream a dream and have hope.

My family is filled with love and trust,
And our story will continue.

Will you listen to our stories forever?

For you......

Now is New York.
Tomorrow is the first performance in New York, no, in USA.
Meeting with American fans..
My heart is trembling.
Cannot fall into sleep from expectation.

Even though we did nothing wrong,
Even though we have nothing that we cannot do,

There was a chance that we could not meet fans in US. (note: referring to the visa issue)
But at that moment, I was so proud of our hyung, the president.

No matter who make us had,
We will show our real self
To you who always stay with us.

We will continue singing
For you........

Song Without a Name, Part 1, Yoochun's Story

Have I ever told you this.

After a probation period of a few months in 2003, we, the team members, finished our first task with ease
In 2004, we were the employee of the month, with countless top results, but we couldn't feel content with just that
We were unable to contain ourselves and we started wanting more.

2005, we embarked into the overseas market, we thought everything would go smoothly like it had in Korea.
On our first attempt, we had the worst results possible and that was when my confidence started to drop.

A language we couldn't even speak
Every day we'd be at our lodgings or the office
An imprisonment that they claimed wasn't an imprisonment, saying it was for our own good

An excessive amount of solitude, tears and rage
These were what made us one
Saying that we couldn't part ways no matter what happened
Saying that we should always be together
Saying that we should resemble each other's good points
We said these things in our hearts and kept running

One day, we finally reached that top position we had so earnestly wanted
We each took our phones and contacted our families and friends.

That day had finally arrived.
From then on, everything started to go so well.

Records selling hundreds of thousands, winning every award out there and harvesting the fruits of our labor.
It felt like even when we cried, those tears dropped softly

The reason we were happier than any joy or sorrow
We, who never gave up and ran till the end
The reason we were stronger than anything else, was because we were one

You have already changed. (I can't stay in that spot forever)
I'll be the first to turn my back on you. (I can't be shedding tears forever)
I'll call out your name, though you keep going so far away (Fly me high into that sky)

We had been running for quite some time.
When we were surrounded by an unexpected, big wall
And the thought, 'Has it always been this dark' stayed in my head for a long time.

Once, this happened.
With the ever growing business expenses, and the increasing debts
The situation became something I could no longer handle on my own

Our CEO had once said these words to us
Tell me whenever you need something. Because we will always be family to each other.

Tell me whenever you need something.
Remembering those words, I took the courage to call him and ask him a favor.

Though I had this strange feeling inside of me, he was the only person I could rely on back then.
Because we were a family who would stay together forever.

Though I built up the courage to ask him a favor, all I received was a cold refusal.
His words made me so mad, but I contained myself and asked him once more to help me out.

He hung up on me.

I couldn't stop the tears streaming down my face.
I couldn't think straight because he wasn't the family I had always believed he was till then.

When he needed us, we were family to him. When we needed him, we were strangers.

More amazing things happened as more time passed.
Hearing that we had finally struck gold overseas and brought in results so unimaginably astronomical,
I walked into the office with a spring in my step to receive my pay.

Our team members were looking at each other with excited gazes.
We complimented each other on how hard we had worked.

But the statement of accounts we received said we were at a deficit
I thought I had seen the figures wrong so I checked again
Everything was listed under expenses
Damn it, how could all that money have gone towards paying expenses.
What kind of expenses were there to make that much money vanish?

I couldn't believe my eyes so I asked them to show me the detailed statement of accounts that I had never seen before.
They told me they would show it to me, but I ended up never seeing those few sheets of paper as all I did was work.

The amount of questions I had grew the more time passed.
The headaches grew the more our team members got together and thought about it.

If I was to say just one last thing
Are the things we do for the company
Really and truly things that are for the company?

Sure, let's say they were. We, the kind souls, will let that one slide.
We will forget it, for the company, and for us, who have been together for so many years.
But that isn't right, those aren't things you should be saying to us.

Were you seriously planning on disappointing us till the very end?
When you called, all you did was talk about our team members behind each other's back, it was so hard to trust you.

This is exactly like what our seniors said. Did you want to keep the ones who'd still willingly make money for you?
A senior told me that the family the company always talked about, would make it hard for us to survive if we left the company
Those words refuse to leave my mind

Though I have so much more to say,
I can't because I feel so frustrated at the thought that someone will torment us more when this song is released.

Anyway, though life is hard, we are working hard and doing well.
We are trying to really smile though we continue to be tormented by someone.

This effort of ours is not the effort of a mere product.
It is the effort that is driven by the thought
That we want to die with no regrets when we leave this earth.

-Commentary by Yoochun-

Yes, in the end, it's JYJ.

Yesterday and tomorrow, though I've thought about it all day long
I can truly feel the difference between then and now at 25, my age

I will now put this pen down.
But my heart it at ease right now.

Because I am able to feel the love of our fans......
I'm thinking of sharing the load I have kept in my heart all this time.
Though nothing is ever easy, my heart is at ease.
I'm happy because we have our fans for our family,
I'm always thinking of you all......
I love you.

So could you believe in us till the end.
Could you tell us that you love us.
We'll work hard till forever, so could you stay by our side.

Because we still have you
And you still have us

I promise, that I'll show you everything eventually.
Yes, we are JYJ.

"You have raised the palace walls and firmly closed the door
They say that love is not imprisonment
Love is letting go to fly freely
But I don't even expect that much
For we, who you made, are not even worth half of half of half of that.
We are nothing but eternal frogs living in a well."
(Excerpt from the musical 'Mozart!')

Though I still have so much to say
I will end it here.
