Everything JYJ do, ‘Big Hits’…Being on public TV is the only thing left for them
JYJ, who are banned from public TV, is showing a serious move.
The OST of ‘Scent of Woman’, which Junsu sang, swept the music charts as soon as it was released. Not only that, Junsu proved the ‘Junsu effect’ by pulling the ratings nearly 3% up. When you see the realtime ratings, you can see that the ratings were the highest when Kim Junsu appeared.
Kim Jaejoong is also showing formidable moves. In ‘Protect the Boss’, his first Korean drama, he is recieving favorable reviews even though his character is not described properly yet. ‘Protect the Boss’ is expected for more in the future, considering it is already recording high ratings with the viewers’ hot support after only two episodes. Especially, as it is known that Kim Jaejoong will be participating in the OST of ‘Protect the Boss’, another ‘allkill’ of music charts is predicted.
Park Yoochun, who played a soft chaebul ‘Song Yuhyun’ in ‘Miss Ripley’ which ended last 19th, shook women’s heart by appearing as a young trainee teacher in a beverage CF recently. As soon as the CF was aired with his refreshing smile and natural acting, it dominated portal sites.
The fans are in joy after the success of drama followed by the great success of OST, saying “Now we only have to be on public TV.” As the results of the drama and songs tell, people who work at broadcasting stations are the first ones to realize that the public still craves for JYJ.
To continue the momentum, JYJ is getting prepared for a photo exhibition and a new Korean album. Especially, the photo exhibition ‘Mine’, which starts on August 12th, is known that JYJ arranged it to communicate with fans, as it is hard for JYJ to interact with fans when they are banned from public TV.
They are also spurring the preparation for their new Korean album. A picture of Kim Junsu and Song Jihyo filming a music video was released, atrracting the netizens’ attention. Kim Jaejoong has also explained through interviews that they are doing their best at preparing the album. However, because Kim Jaejoong is playing in a drama, it is known that they are planning the schedules carefully. It is an issue if JYJ can show up on Music Bank when they release their new Korean album. Because last May, KBS announced officially that ‘when a new album is released, JYJ might be able to show up according to the PD’s judgement’, when there was a controversy over the list of banned singers.
JYJ, who are continuously achieving big success despite restrictions on public TV appearance. I am curious when they will be able to be free of irrational restrictions on public TV appearance.
