JYJ‘s agency has sent warning messages toward netizens who posted and spread false rumors about JYJ on the Internet.
On December 3, C-JeS Entertainment made a post on their official website with the title, “A Warning Regarding False Information Circulation and Defamation And Its Legal Consequences.”
The post read, “We strictly warn all netizens who have been posting false information and malicious posts about JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu),” and “If any of our C-JeS artists find damage in those malicious and defaming posts that contain false information, we will report them to the cyber police and take legal action.”
It continued, “We have already filed successful lawsuits against over 20 netizens this year alone, which caused them to meet legal consequences. For minors, parents were notified and they were required to sign memorandums.”
Finally, the post read, “We have recently sued many netizens once again for making slanderous posts on DC Inside, which hurt JYJ and the fans who love JYJ. If those kinds of posts continue to be made, we will report them to the cyber police and take legal action.”
Meanwhile, the long legal battle between JYJ and SM has recently been settled.
K Netizens’ reactions:
Article: JYJ’s agency reveals, “We charged over 20 netizens leaving hateful replies this year”

1. [+747, -79] Aside from whether or not you like them, criticism is always acceptable. What’s not acceptable = spreading false rumors and leaving hateful replies.
2. [+686, -96] The netizens that leave hateful replies are just losers in real life
3. [+653, -82] Restricting yourself from leaving hateful replies is always a start, but I think taking things to the next level like the court is also a step in the right direction
4. [+164, -5] Looks like those netizens will find themselves in the warm police station this winter thanks to their naughty fingers! So why do you have to go and write stuff like that… tsk tsk.. especially to people that don’t concern you.
5. [+164, -6] There are always those that claim they don’t care about JYJ but always come rushing in the first article that comes up ㅋㅋㅋ

You go cjes, gettem!!!!!!!!! Spreading false rumors about jyj is plain wrong!!!! Especially since they have not did anything to the person. Those people need to get a life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Woohoo! Good move CJes! 😀 and for that, i give you my chun’s dance moves in IMY! Hahaha
“4. [+164, -5] Looks like those netizens will find themselves in the warm police station this winter thanks to their naughty fingers! So why do you have to go and write stuff like that… tsk tsk.. especially to people that don’t concern you.”
YES CJES PROTECT OUR LOVE JYJ WE WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT JYJ AND THE ONLY WORDS I AM GOING TO BELIEVE IS THE WORDS THAT CAME FROM JYJ MOUTH ONLY SO HATERS GIVE IT A REST YOU WON’T TAKE OUR LOVE AWAY FROM JYJ BECAUSE OUR LOVE FOR THEM IS FOR ETERNITY JYJ I AM ALWAYS PROUD TO BE YOUR FAN I LOVE YOU AND WISH YOU HAPPINESS
What goes around comes around and when it backfires if it hurts double the impact from what the haters threw at their opponent well don’t look for mercy or pity because they knew the consequences were at a very high risk for a fowl play or a home run. Defamation of character is such a low way of letting others know of their jealousy and psycho minded frustration, I hope those idiots get it by now not to toy with others emotions, dignity and respect from which I see those haters didn’t have an inch of it.
i am glad to see that c-jes is taking action and being proactive on this.
Some people do not have to do even more
CJes just better than the agency i ever know, “you know ” lah 😉
protect JYJ, good good.. ^^
Who are these HATERS? I am totally shocked that there are even JYJ haters out there?! The world LOVES JYJ, how can there be haters? These 3 amazing human beings have brought so much joy and happiness into our lives that we are so grateful and thankful for their contributions. Haters?! Can’t even begin to comprehend who’s behind all these viciousness! JYJ, Fighting! And please, leave our beloved JYJ alone?!
This is good…go cjes! That will teach them not to mess with jyj and us jyj fans..hater!get a life
i always wonder why people could be such coward and only dare to bashed or hate others using media online, what gain they could get from that? Is hurting others make them happy? Is other pain make them smile? People seriously need to grow up and stop being coward.. Anyway im glad cjes takes this matters seriously.. Way to go cjes
Some people never learn..tsk..tsk, are they forget with Tablo case ?
Took CJES long enough. Those antis have been warned. If they keep up, it’s time to take actual legal actions against them or else they’d think they could just slander or spread vicious rumors about someone on the Internet and face no consequences. CJES is very keen on protecting JYJ’s images. I hope they can also do something to tame those overly delusional YJ shippers. If CJES doesn’t allow pictures Jaejoong took with his dermatologists to be posted online, those R-rated photoshoped pictures shippers made are definitely a serious case. Not to mention all the offensive things about Jae that they deliberately spread around. >__>
They should start suing sasaengs too.
Anyone knows what ‘comments’ that these netizens wrote bout our boys? I understand that for those who do know might not tell me the detail here on this site but maybe a little bit of info?
“There are always those that claim they don’t care about JYJ but always come rushing in the first article that comes up ㅋㅋㅋ”
LOL .. a lot of people have far too much time on their hands … and they don’t even waste it on things they like .
and JYJ look great in that picture .
i have so much respect for CJES! it’s time that those boys are able to protect themselves in every aspect possible. they don’t need to put up with “fans” saying horrifying things about them.
CJES hopefully checks tumblr often. i don’t want to name names (*cough*livinglikeadreamyj *cough*) imo should be charged. she says terrible things every chance she can.
Agreed regarding tumblr! (Would you like a cough drop? LOL) I had to block her id on tumblr because I got tired of seeing her trolling the jaejoong tag.
She is the grossest thing imagineable and she has the nerve to claim that she cares about Jaejoong. No, she cares about her homosexual fantasies so she doesn’t have to wake up to a reality where her Yunho is busy with some woman in South Korea. She is so full of it but if you try telling her otherwise she’ll just claim that JYJ stans are haters who can’t bear that “oppa” is gay.
Now CJes and legal team , take action against those pornographic/defaming materials shown in public places and on the web against Jaejoong, those crazy YJ shippers should be taught some lessons!
Hmmm who knows, maybe they alreafy did… c-Jes said that they filed more than 20 lawsuits… I hope that was one of them
Super duper love and respect C-JeS!!! They really protect JYJ as part of their family. JYJ, the best decision you guys have done so far is to join this FAMILY! 😀
“They really protect JYJ as part of their family”
Maybe you’ll accuse me of picking bones here but that “family” comment is really bothersome. We might be so accustomed to the SME way of doing things that we project the same terminology onto CJeS, maybe JYJ do this too, who knows?
CJeS is protecting clients (whom they are close to by all means but are not “family”) from libel and slander by malicious netizens through legal action. Let us not start romanticizing everything CJeS does. This defamation harms both CJeS and JYJ in different ways. JYJ have to deal with both the emotional toll and a negative and false perception from the public that could seriously affect their activities and ability to sell while frankly, CJeS only has potential monetary loss. You might claim that CJeS could also suffer from public scrutiny but from what I have noticed, management companies weather scandals far easier than the artists. Even when things are proven to be false and the storm calms down the damage is already done.
Tablo is an excellent example. It took much time for him to recover emotionally and reconnect with his fans. That is the power of malicious netizens. Companies scrape by BECAUSE they are companies, we picture a phantasmagoria of faces and so it easy to just zero in on the face we DO know AKA the artist(s). Another example: SME is the biggest piece of shit but somehow the harshest insults and threats are saved for the idols under that company and not for Lee Soo Man or Kim Young Min.
Sorry I went on a tangent but I really dislike this terminology when we all know that 99.8% of S. Korean (heck! the world!)companies are nothing like families and it is naive to think CJeS is one as well.
I agree .. JYJ may see each other as family but C-JeS is a Business partner that benefits from JYJ .
What have those fans been saying? 😦
MUCH RESPECT FOR CJES!
THIS IS A BOLD MOVE!
This article proves that the battle behind the scenes is a firece one…. attacks against JYJ come from sooooo many varied angles and we need to be careful how quickly we pass judgement on CJES and JYJ themselves and their decisions.
As fans we never know what is truly happening behind the scenes. The little we know of JYJs suffering is just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS>>> “We have already filed successful lawsuits against over 20 netizens this year alone, which caused them to meet legal consequences. For minors, parents were notified and they were required to sign memorandums.”
Notice the operative word here is ALREADY and THIS YEAR ALONE. Contrary to what so many believe…CJES has been acting to protect JYJs interests with the weapons the can use legally. Just because they don’t announce their plans to the fandom, (and why should they) it does not mean they are not acting diligently behind the scenes. Yes, It’s been harsh for JYJ but just as harsh for CJES to do what they were hired to do. Yet for every 10 good outcomes CJES creates for JYJ the fandom finds and focuses on the one that came out wrong..
I’m glad CJES went public about this…
So maybe I’m in the minority here but THANK YOU CJES and LEGAL team for your loyalty and relentless support of JYJ for the last three years. I bow in deep gratitude… if fate had not brought you to their side would we still be able to say JYJ is alive and well and even prospering or would the name JYJ just faded away and just been a memory as SME had planned?
AGAIN Thank You. …
@ A Friend of JYJ
Excellent!!! If other companies are too careless or chicken shit to do something about these people then let CJeS/JYJ be the first ones to try. Yet again, JYJ are breaking barriers even if haters don’t wanna admit.
THIS!! What she said!
I hope those who harrassed JJ in Nanjing are included.
Well said, thank you!
My thoughts mirror yours and I’m so glad CJES went public with their actions. Why not put a little fear into those thinking they will post something in the future. This will hopefully make those that want to defame JYJ pause and think hard on their words and actions in public forums.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” 😉
Could have sworn I hit ‘reply’. This was in response to @A Friend of JYJ
Because of JYJ, not only have contractual terms improved for future kpop idols, now netizens and “fans” will be wary before they decide to launch any hate campaign against other artists in future. If there is any moment in kpop history that has looked better, it is now. Kudos to CJES who have fought alongside JYJ throughout this period.
About time! Go, CJes!
whenever read malicious posts about JYJ, eg extremely porn suggested,
and blur misleading comment about them, i feel so disappointed & helpless.
Now this action is just SO NICE.
Now I hope that CJES can shift focus a bit and start dealing with all the crazy saesangs!!
Next, sasaengs should be arrested and sued too.
Bravo to CJes! Work well done and please continue your good work.
Yeahh! Love C-jes for protecting their artists! Bravo! Well done! ^^
so happy with this post. im really liking cjes, jyj couldnt have been in much better hands. cjes is so overprotective of our boys, hehe.
Thank You CjeS!!! It’s good to know that good results are taking place on behalf of JYJ. Keep it up!!!
Always trusted and know that CJES will do their best to protect JYJ boys like a papa to their sons. God Bless CJES and JYJ boys!
finally, good work C-jes could have been 3 years ago, but late better than never.
DELETED BY ADMIN
Why is that considered a stupid move? I’m glad that CJeS is taking action against those people who think they can defame and bash anybody by hiding behind what they think is ‘anonymity’ on social media. These people may not be aware that they need to be responsible and accountable for their actions online, and yes, what they post can be easily tracked.
I am a regular Twitter user and I get pretty irked by morons who spread malicious lies, call our JYJ guys by all sorts of unkind names and retweet nude photoshopped pictures of them. I have considered screen-capping some of these tweets and sending them over to CJeS.
Since this announcement was made, the antis have disappeared or became more civil. OUr JYJ guys are also humans – they deserved to be treated with dignity just like you and me. Why should they tolerate nonsense just because they are celebrities?
I completely, 101% agree with you. i read an article before about how artists were treated from another asian country where they considered them as ‘public properties.’ the article discussed about the extent of defamation or insult an artist must take or must they actually react to such. also, how much meddling or prying must they be able take from fans who wanted to know everything there is about their idols; every little detail, all that’s private. i made a reaction to that article and wrote the same thing i am now to this…our precious JYJ, though we met and get to know them because they chose to become performers are just like us…human beings. we pay for their every performances, appearances, and patronize every products that bear their names but doesn’t mean that they’re included in the package; that we make them do what we want, and make them listen to whatever we want to say and expect them to just sit, listen, watch, smile, and waive their hands. aaah seriously. what CJES did was commendable, though others don’t feel the same way. every action has its consequence and little does these people know that striking at JYJ and its gazillion fans could prove that their own idols are not positive influence for them…with this they better think of just joining the JYJ fandom to really experience what a love, respect, and frienship for an idol can actually mean and do to a humble fan like you and me.
What are 20 netizens going to do? Are you really asking that?
They spread lies about JYJ. Not opinions like, “I don’t like JYJ” or “I don’t care for their singing.”
No, they spread manipulated pictures, false “classified” information, hack into their online accounts, post private information like their passport numbers, they harass JYJ on the internet (twitter, facebook) and go to any internet cafe they can to post hateful comments attacking JYJ’s personal character in order to mislead people who don’t know about JYJ.
Opinions are one thing, libel and slander is another. You can’t make stuff up about people and post it on the internet and pretend you were just “expressing” an opinion.
Don’t get it twisted asshat and don’t act like these kinds of Netizens are innocent people. If you don’t care about the harm these people cause then why don’t you let me have a picture of you and your mom. I’ll post made up information about you both next to your pictures. See if you find it harmless then.
OPINIONS ARE NOT THE SAME AS LIBEL/SLANDER/DEFAMATION. GET IT THROUGH YOUR TINY, PUS-INFESTED BRAIN.
it took one netizen to make Tablo’s life difficult by just questioning his academic background and insisting that he lied about it .
up to a Hundred thousand netizens where demanding ” the Truth from Tablo” because of that and even when he gave them the evidenced that provided he wasn’t Lying there are still over 30,000 netizens still asking for the truth .
so yeah .. what’s a group of internet people going to do ..right ?
@Mmm3009 Lol..are you one of the 20 freakin useless and brainless netizens? Thats y u r afraid and askin this stupid question? Lmao xD
i don’t think there is a need to talk to her like that. if she doesn’t understand you should clarify and explain instead of hurt her feelings. not everyone grasps if this is a move that could hurt JYJ’s image or protect JYJ, there are people who look at an angle and forget to look at the other angle, there is nothing wrong to remind them of the real deal here.
some fans at this site are just plain aggressive, though i am no better LOL
She isn’t clueless. Seems she also doesn’t respect CJeS since she called them a joke and 2nd if you have to explain why people who harass others need to face legal action well then wow! Either she has no brains or she is willfully ignorant.
If u think what i said is aggressive,think twice. Oh ok,does that commentor even think twice before she/he comment here? How could she said like that? Stupid move? I’M SO SORRY but that was freakin RUDE. What a nice way to deliberate C-JES action..thats what makes me mad,but hey..did i said anythin bad? Lol..u want me to explain? Here’s explanation. We are damn tired of all those haters or the ridiculous excessive whateva shippers done to our precious boys. It was horrible enough to witnessed all the shitty things they do in real and the cyber world itself for these 3years..and the MOST embarassing thing recently for me was Jae’s fm at China…with those FREAKIN huge ‘banner’,OMG..they didn’t have the rights to do that at all!! How i wish C-JES can take action for those so-called ‘fans’ too..
So my point here is,what C-JES done is CLEVER,beyond that!! Now if they think they can easily bashing JYJ,spread false info,rumours coz itscyber world and nobody can see them,THEY ARE WRONG. But hey,if they still wanna be one of the 20 idiots,go ahead and have a taste of REALITY. Theres a price to pay for any crime u do. S.I.M.P.L.E xD
listen, the POLICE , are arresting those netzens , go complain to the law if you have a case. police wouldn’t arrest them if they were not breaking the law.
if there was no serious case, the police wouldn’t arrest them ,now would they.
>>”What are 20 netzians going to do?”
Well let’s see? Have you ever heard of TABLO? It’s called DIGITAL INQUISITION.
It’s a CLASSIC CASE when it comes to demonstrating and understanding the power of the written word combined with the reach of the internet.
20 netzians?? The TABLO case started with the comments of one person!
The Stalking of Korean Hip Hop Superstar Daniel Lee
READ THIS AND BECOME INFORMED http://www.wired.com/underwire/2012/04/ff_koreanrapper/
The campaign against him LEE took off on May 11, 2010, when someone formed an online forum titled TaJinYo, an abbreviation in Korean for the phrase “Tell the truth, Tablo.”
>>>The leader of the forum identified himself as Whatbecomes, indicated that he lived in the US, and explained that he was contacting news organizations in Korea and the States to inform them that Lee was a liar. Chief among the accusations was that Lee had fabricated his Stanford credentials. Diploma falsification had been a sensitive topic in Korea for some time.
>>>After entertainment gossip sites wrote about the anti-Lee site, TaJinYo’s membership swelled to more than 100,000. Not content to wait for more allegations to emerge, many forum members launched their own investigations into Lee’s past. Soon, in a birtherlike onslaught, Stanford professors and administrators were flooded with emails from people questioning Lee’s educational background. Thomas Black, the Stanford registrar, received 133 emails on the subject. Everybody wanted to know one thing: Was Lee telling the truth?
>>>Forum members seemed to relish the digital inquisition. “We call this game ,” wrote one heckler, who referred to himself as a Tablo Online player, as if it were a casual pastime to be enjoyed during work breaks. Whatbecomes expertly fanned the flames, threatening to reveal dark secrets about Lee and promising to unveil them slowly for maximum dramatic effect. It was, he said, “more fun that way.
CLICK THE LINK ABOVE AND READ THE WHOLE STORY
One crazy man with a personal vendetta was able to rally 100,000 people against one man. Even after the allegations were proven to be false… the “netzians” refused to believe the truth and continued to this day to spread the lie.
And you ask what 20 netzians can do? … Well imagine 20 “Whatbecomes” the leader who started the campaign against Daniel Lee aligned against JYJ in a similar manner…Now I ask you..do you still think CJES is “incredibly stupid”?
Do u think she/he can understand it @A Friend Of JYJ ? LOL xD ooops,i can’t say more my fellow JYJers,or else someone will say my comment is aggressive. Lmao xD
yes its agressive, look how you and the other replied to me, all i said is not everyone is on the same brain wave hence why you explain, you can win peoples support if you don’t go all anti towards anti.
its usesless, jyj3 has allots of hostile JYJ fans, i see All 5 DBSK are more tolerant than you. at least if you clarify and then she insists you can’t say you didn’t try, but who tries to gain support for JYJ through explanation, its just easier to put down people to make them react with more rejection than winning them over. HOSTILE much : )
yesss.gogogo.together letz be the army for our kings JYJ ❤
“We have recently sued many netizens once again for making slanderous posts on DC Inside, which hurt JYJ and the fans who love JYJ. ” HAHAHAHA again proud to be a fan..
