“Even if there is only trust, I am still happy”
On the 18th this month, KBS released an official statement through the KBS Online Office’s message board regarding JYJ being unable to appear on broadcast programmes.
KBS Entertainment Bureau expressed their own stand on the issue, “The continuous problem of JYJ being unable to appear on broadcasts, as well as the legal issues, shows the definite risk of adversely affecting the development and order of the cultural industry. This is the reason why they are unable to have any broadcast appearances before the legal dispute between JYJ and their entertainment company comes to an end via compromise or through a final judgement. We will decide on future appearances based on the verdict of the lawsuit.”
On the 19th, JYJ member Kim Junsu posted words of gratitude to fans on his personal Twitter in relation to this event. He said, “When I woke up this morning, I saw this kind and that kind of news appear…! We just have to work even harder ^^ You know this right!? Do not be sad..”
Afterwards he continued to thank, “There will be a day where we will be understood and trusted ^^ Until that moment comes, if we do not give up on each other, even if we only have that (trust) we will be happy~ I am always thankful to all of you!”
At the same time, fans replied with words like “We are happy just being able to listen to you sing”, “Because of your positive thinking, fans are gaining strength too” among others.
On another note, JYJ plans to hold their North American Tour consecutively in 4 cities, starting on the 20th in Vancouver, Canada, following with New Jersey on the 22nd, Los Angeles on the 27th, and San Jose on 2nd June.
