JYJ Is Not Welcomed Back To JapanPosted: March 9, 2011
But JYJ‘s wallets are gladly welcomed!
JYJ‘s Japanese fans were left puzzled to discover that despite their DVD DVD Memories in 2010‘ and their album ‘Thanksgiving Live in Dome Live CD‘, being sold in Japan, neither one appeared on the Japanese Oricon charts.
Last year JYJ was best of friends with their label avex entertainment, but despite a no.1 hit album, the relationship quickly turned sour, and JYJ were forced to leave avex.
One year later and things have only worsened for both parties, as Oricon revealed that as long as avex holds the name JYJ in Japan they can pretty much do whatever they want.
And by that we mean profiting from every penny the album and dvd sold, that JYJ won’t be seeing anytime soon, all while banning them from every setting foot on stage.
JYJ is of course not happy as the group’s representative stated “It’s ridiculous for Avex to block JYJ from promoting in Japan, and yet still claim rights over the sales and profits of JYJ’s albums.”
The group already settled their problems in Korea, but it looks like there far from done.
What do you think of ORICON’s decision?
