[JP Trial Translation] Avex and C-JeS court records
「March 13, 2012
This petition is for JYJ to do activities freely in Japan.
We are fans of JYJ, a male vocal group from Korea.
In Sept 2009, Avex management, the defendant in this case, declared the unilateral hiatus of JYJ in Japan, taking away from us the opportunity to hear their music.
1 1/2 years has passed since this sudden hiatus, despite the fervent hopes of JYJ and us fans to resume their activities freely in Japan, that day has not yet come.
Not only that, the actions of Avex have deeply hurt the hearts of the artists and the fans repeatedly.
In order to protest against such tactics of Avex, we made a signature petition which aim to let JYJ have activities freely in Japan. As a result, 19,813 signatures were collected as shown in the attachment.
We support the activities of the C-JeS company.
We humbly submit this petition to the court.
This signature campaign was initiated by us. We ask for your support. 」
The following are the most recent documents prepared by both parties.
1) The singing part in Rooftop Prince: “It’s very difficult to sing the part ‘tied tightly with a rope’”. A recorded version instead of live singing was used in ‘Miss Ripley’ so this is the first time that I have to sing while filming for a TV drama. I have to sing like Lee Gak but I have the habit of humming unconsciously. Therefore, in order not to sing like a singer, I have put much thought into it. Very interesting.” [T/N: Click here for the singing part ]
2) “The overwhelming sadness made me stay focused instead.”
Park Yoochun experienced the sadness of losing his father before the official release of Roof Top Prince. Since Rooftop Prince is a romantic comedy, people were concerned about whether he has overcome his feelings.

JYJ‘s Kim Jaejoong gave fans a sneak peek into his extremely busy life.
On June 6th, Jaejoong shared the photos above via his Twitter page and wrote, “Someone is putting makeup on me, even while I sleep,” along with “Tan everywhere except my legs.”
In the first photo, an exhausted Jaejoong is fast asleep, however, he cannot rest completely comfortably as his make up artist is busy putting make up on his face in preparation for his next scene for filming. In the second photo, there’s no rest for Jaejoong as he is busy rehearsing his lines while en route to the next filming location.
