JYJ fought a long legal battle with SM for three years and four months. The fact that they are ‘Kpop stars’ and ‘former members of TVXQ’ were enough to push them into the spotlight.

Photos from Park Yoochun’s photoshoot in Bali have been released recently.
JYJ's Park Yoochun, who took on the role of the crown prince, Lee Gak, in the SBS drama “Rooftop Prince”, carried out a photoshoot for the July issue of fashion magazine, “ELLE”.
Park Yoochun crossed-over to acting through the KBS2TV drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, and gradually built up his career as an actor with MBC’s “Miss Ripley”, and “Rooftop Prince”.
In response to the question, “Do you feel pressurised when acting?”, Park Yoochun expressed, “I took on the production this time with an open mind, and I was actually able to enjoy acting instead. It seems that I can achieve better results this way.”
Also, when asked, “What is the album you listen to the most recently?”, Park Yoochun showed his affection (for Junsu) when he replied, “I often listen to Junsu’s solo album. As a member, I am proud of him.”
With regard to the JYJ members’ individual activities, Park Yoochun said, “Junsu has been doing outstandingly as he showed off the image of a true artist through the musical and his solo album.” He also sent his support to Kim Jaejoong, who is attempting a style of acting different from his previous works.
Park Yoochun’s photoshoot was held on the day of his birthday, 4 June. After he was heard saying, “Since our debut, I have not spent my birthday in Korea before,” Elle prepared a simple BBQ party. The image of him enjoying his birthday party is casual and easy-going.

JYJ member Junsu, known as XIA while promoting solo music, has set a new record on the Goan chart for selling the most records out of any solo artist.
Recently, XIA's first solo album "TARANTALLEGRA" sold over 120,000 units. This was enough to beat all other solo artist albums in terms of units sold.
XIA has also proven his popularity outside of Korea. The album topped various charts in Japan upon its release, including Japan's iTunes, Tower Records Japan's chart, Japan's Rakuten and Amazon Japan. In addition, the title track's music video ranked first on the Chinese website Yin Yue Tai for the month of May.
"We know that China people have difficulty accessing Youtube and Twitter, and that any album that rises on their music video site reflects the public interest and standards of China. There is a great significance attached to XIA's accomplishment, especially considering the fact that 'TARANTALLEGRA' ranked above the music videos of Super Junior and Taetiseo, who both have had broadcast performances and promotions," a representative for C-JeS Entertainment stated.
