After the “TVXQ crisis” that has been causing a disruption similar to a nuclear blast in the Korean music industry for the past two years occurred, a book that looks into the foundations of this case has finally been written. This book, published by EnterPost and entitled Prosper JYJ (author Kim BumTae) is now for sale.
This book looks into the ‘faceless’ singers JYJ who ‘cannot perform on music shows even if their sales are number 1’ and makes sure that the issues facing them are squarely raised.

This book includes information from various media blogs, such as EnterPost’s popular 3 month long series “JYJ walking back to the tent”. Read More →
