“Two tried to stay while three tried to leave. I hope all of us are happy right now…”

This is what Park Yoochun had to say about JYJ’s split from TVXQ, a group that recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, five years ago.

In an interview with edaily StarIn ahead of the release of ‘Sea Fog’, Park Yoochun was asked to rate his activities since the dissolution of TVXQ, to which he replied, “I was happy.” He continued to add, “But as time went on, I began to think, ‘What was it all for?’ It was probably a choice we all made for ourselves as individuals. Even the ill feelings I once had towards them are gone now. I truly hope that all of us are happy right now.”

Park Yoochun said, “I’m really excited to see the drama ‘Night Watchmen’, which Yunho appears in.” ‘Night Watchmen’ is MBC’s current Monday-Tuesday drama that began airing after the end of ‘Triangle’, which JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong appeared in.

Park Yoochun reminisced about his old colleagues as he said, “I hope it all works out for all five of us,” and “If we’re able to get together and have a glass of soju together one day, even that alone would be great, don’t you think?”

TVXQ made their debut in 2004 with ‘HUG’ and released a stream of hits such as ‘O-Jung.Ban.Hap’ and ‘MIROTIC’, becoming the most popular Korean idol group ever. Since splitting into a two-membered TVXQ and three-membered JYJ due to problems with their contract, they have been expanding their activities to the drama, movie and musical industries, showcasing their prevailing popularity and influence.

Park Yoochun recently made a comeback as both a singer and actor. JYJ released their second full-length album on the 29th of August and held their Seoul concert on the 9th. His first movie ‘Sea Fog’ was released on the 13th.

‘Sea Fog’ is based on a play that follows six sailors as their boat is flooded by a group of stowaways. In the movie, Park Yoochun plays Dong Shik, the youngest crew member who falls in love with Hong Mae (Han Yaeri), who becomes a stowaway to find her lost brother.

JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) have proven their everlasting popularity by topping the album sales charts for two consecutive weeks.

According to Hanteo Charts, JYJ’s second full-length album ‘JUST US’ has sold a total of 28,840 copies from the 4th till the 10th of August, making it the most-sold album of the week.

After being released offline on the 29th, the album sold 32,788 copies in its first week and topped the charts, making this its second consecutive week in the top position.

The group also proved their popularity overseas when their album ranked second place on the Oricon weekly charts and 4th on Billboard’s world album charts. These achievements have been highlighted by the industry because they were achieved by an album with Korean lyrics rather than an album tailored to these overseas markets.

This is JYJ’s first album in three years since their release of ‘In Heaven’ in 2011. Their title track ‘Back Seat’ is an urban R&B track with emotional lyrics and a mystical atmosphere. It topped the music charts as soon as it was released online.

Meanwhile, the second week of August (4th~10th of August) reflected the recent trend of male idol domination. Block B’s ‘Her’ sold 14,838 copies and came in at second place. B1A4’s ‘Solo Day’ came in at third with 6,768 copies sold, and Infinite’s ‘Back’ came in at fourth place with 2,114 copies sold.

Not even a cool summer breeze could dampen the heated energy shooting out of JYJ. The air buzzed hotter than a tropical rainforest with screaming fans and JYJ’s powerful energy filling the outdoor stadium. A passionate performance and explosive screams let the world know that the ‘Kings’ had returned.

JYJ held the Seoul leg of their 2014 Asia Tour ‘THE RETURN OF THE KING’ at the Jamshil Stadium on the 9th. The venue was filled to the brim from early on in the day with 30,000 fans who had gathered to see JYJ. Holding red lightsticks in their hands, their shouts were more passionate and energetic than ever as they awaited the return of JYJ as a complete group.

Opening the night with a captivating video, JYJ greeted their fans by saying, “This is something we’ve felt since we started rehearsing yesterday, but this is great
weather
to have an outdoor concert. I’m reminded of that cold day many years ago; it was so cold that we couldn’t even hold our microphones properly. We’re happy that the weather is so nice today.”

JYJ recently opened up about their lack of broadcasted appearances.

JYJ’s ‘2014 JYJ Asia Tour THE RETURN OF THE KING’ concert was held at 8pm on the 9th at Seoul’s Jamshil Stadium. Standing on stage at the Jamshil Stadium for the first time in three years since November of 2011, JYJ filled their setlist with a variety of songs, including solo performances and ‘BACK SEAT’, the title song of their most recent album ‘JUST US’.

Ahead of their last song, the members opened up about making their first comeback in three years, as well as their affection for their fans. Kim Jaejoong said, “This is the first time in a while that we’ve made a comeback with a full-length album, and we looked so young and lively in the teaser that I thought, ‘We look like rookies, don’t we?’ It was so refreshing for us, but we’ve been banned from performing our song on TV.” Park Yoochun jokingly added, “I think it’s because Junsu looks too sexy when he dances.”

Kim Junsu said, “Our song has been banned, but even if it hadn’t been, we still wouldn’t have been able to make a broadcasted appearance. But it’s okay. It’s nothing special. Although we can only see you in situations like this, let’s think of it in a positive light.” JYJ’s latest title track ‘BACK SEAT’ was banned by KBS for being too suggestive.

Meanwhile, JYJ successfully held the Seoul leg of their 2014 Asia tour ‘THE RETURN OF THE KING’ at the Jamshil Stadium on the 9th. They plan to visit eight cities to hold further performances for their tour.
