Scandals of JYJ
Junsu and Hani EXID
Kim Junsu is a former member of one of the most famous K-Pop bands in the history, DBSK. After the scandal with the SM contract, he and two other members started the JYJ group with great success. This 29-year-old idol is one of the hottest presences in the K-Pop industry and of course, many fans gasp when they hear the date of his next appearance. Hani, a 24-year-old singer, member of a new group in the K-Pop industry, EXID, is known for her childish appearance, vampire lips and long, sexy legs. There have been several scandals in the past that involve the group Hani is a member of, namely EXID. Most of them are related to the explicit and sexual content of their music videos.
In South Korea, dating news, are not always considered as something good. Sasaeng fans (those who can go crazy because of their idols) will cast a shadow on their idols, trying to find the meanest comments about their idols’ partners and sometimes even go to extremes by making death threats. Also, the company where the idol has signed might also face a lot of problems. The stock market drops low, so it’s important not to mess around with dating news. K-Pop idols are humans too, so companies can only accept reality and support their idols.
Last year, Junsu invited Hani out and because she admired him for his career, she accepted the invite. Very quickly their mutual admiration turns into a relationship. They spent Christmas Eve together and the sparkle got even bigger.
On September 14th, EXID’s agency stated that it was true “Kim Junsu and Hani broke up.” They added that they could not confirm the reasons for the breakup. It seems that they naturally separated due to their very busy schedules. This is a typical response from the agency after breaking up. Most of the broken pairs are attributed to the busy schedule as a reason. Fans stated that the separation was months ago, but the truth was only known to Junsu and Hani.
JYJ’s Jaejoong criticized for making misogynistic statements
According to a fan who attended the singer’s concert on January 22nd, Jaejoong surprised fans when he said, “All of you who only ridicule may not have a boyfriend, right? At present, birth rates are low in our country. Pregnancy before marriage isn’t even a bad thing when this seems like there are a lot of good male fans here, so get their number and you know? And because this [venue] is close to the university, there are many [people] outside.”
The fan released her anger and disappointment on the Facebook page, ‘Misogyny in Korea’, and explained that she was very unhappy with Jaejoong’s offensive statement, calling her a birth-giving device. The fan also showed that the low birth rate in Korea is not just the women’s fault and that a one-night stand is clearly not the answer to this problem.
Netizens also joined in to criticize, commenting, “He’s crazy … I think I misread it,” “He must be careful with his words,” “Does he want his fans to have sex after concerts or something; if he doesn’t know how to say something he just shouldn’t say it,” “Does he think of it as a joke? He must have thought his fans were stupid.”

Yoochun is voicing his thoughts about the controversy
After a long silence, JYJ Yoochun finally opened his voice about the controversy involving him, a year later. Through the Instagram account of his fiance, the actor and singer expressed his feelings regarding the scandal surrounding him.
“I won’t say anything… I feel very guilty towards everyone. I want to apologize directly to everyone… but I can’t do it… I’m too embarrassed by it… I really apologize… I’m really sorry… even if you hurt yourself every day and cry… is this more painful than the wound I gave you?” wrote the former member of TVXQ.
Yoochun admitted that he was very angry with all the news that cornered him at the time. However, at that time he claimed he could do nothing. “I am very angry with all the news in the media. I recently met with the South Korean Church Assembly… I told him honestly, I want to get up again. I really hope that one day I can see you directly and talk about my feelings,” he continued.
In his statement, Yoochun also discussed the news of his marriage which was quite surprising to the public. “Regarding my marriage, I also apologize to everyone that I couldn’t say it directly. Even if I don’t apologize… it’s very difficult to tell everyone,” he explained. Yoochun asks everyone to respect this decision. In addition, he also asked everyone to always support him and his fiance, Hwang Ha-na.
“Every day I try my best… everyone also has to do more than that… I’m sorry and thank you. I really hope to meet you one day… Please always support me and Ha-na. Again, thank you,” he said.
Meanwhile, a year ago Yoochun was accused of sexually harassing several women in a nightclub. However, after several checks, Yoochun was found not guilty. Yoochun, who recently finished serving in the military service, had scheduled his wedding ceremony in August 2017.

I know that too, but I try my best,” Yoochun said.

Yoochun’s desire for a reunion turned out to receive slanted comments from many netizens. Not a few are upset and think Yoochun is looking for attention because he always talks about TVXQ. “Fans only asked about three people (JYJ), but why did he suddenly mention a reunion of five? After years he left Yunho and Max Changmin and now he uses their names to attract attention? I’m sick of him,” a netter said. “He and their trio and fans really want to return to their golden age because lately, their careers have not gone well,” another netter continued.
But there are also fans who want to see this reunion happen. “Wow, Yoochun wants a reunion of the five members!” said a netter. “I was very surprised because Yoochun mentioned Xiah Junsu’s name on another day and now calls JYJ and TVXQ at his concert.
