Male group JYJ (as pictured) are set to finally release a Korean album domestically.
Although the recording format and the release timings have not been fixed, JYJ stated that they would release their album within the year “No matter what”.
With only Korean songs, this marks JYJ’s second album release, following last October’s “The Beginning”. In an interview with Sports Donga, JYJ member Kim Jaejoong said “Though I don’t know the exact [release] time, it will be soon” and “this album is being prepared in Korean as a repayment to our Korean fans”.
In particular, it will be interesting to see how this new album will affect JYJ’s domestic broadcast activities. The three members have previously appeared on TV, on KBS2, in order to sing their song “Found You” from the drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”. Amidst controversy, KBS also released a statement saying that “Once JYJ have an official album release, they may appear on shows such a Music Bank”. Cjes Entertainment stated that “this time we will be able to see them if there is no external pressure”.
Meanwhile, the cancellation of JYJ’s appearance in KBS1′s “Wishing for the 7 World Wonders Jeju Special Broadcast” four days before the event has caused a lawsuit against KBS Jeju to be filed to the Fair Trade Commission.
