JYJ (formerly known as JAEJOONG/YUCHUN/JUNSU in Japan) is a three-member pop group, formed by three members of the South Korean boyband TVXQ: Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu. Their group name is taken from the first letters of each members’ names.
Their debut Japanese language EP The… reached No. 1 on the Japanese Oricon albums chart. The band’s English language global debut album, The Beginning, was released in October 2010. JYJ’s second studio album and first Korean language Album In Heaven was released on September 28, 2011.
 2009: Lawsuit with SM Entertainment
In mid-2009, the three members who were to become JYJ filed a lawsuit against their South Korean record label, SM Entertainment, arguing that the 13-year length and structure of their exclusive contracts as well as the terms of profit distribution were unilaterally disadvantageous towards the artists and should be invalidated. The Seoul Central District Court in October 2009 ruled in favor of JYJ affirming their right to independently engage in entertainment activities and granted JYJ’s injunction suspending the JYJ-SM contract; its ruling emphatically pointed out it was a “subjugating contract” with terms that are grossly incompatible with Korean labor and contract law. The three members of JYJ continued their activities in Japan for over half a year after the filing of the injunction until their Japanese agency, Avex, announced a group hiatus in early 2010.
 2010: Debut as JYJ – Japan Tour and The Beginning
The three-member group was announced in April 2010 by Rhythm Zone, a sub-label of Avex. The group performed two rounds of lives: their four-day Thanksgiving Live in Dome at Osaka Dome and Tokyo Dome concerts in June, and performances at the nation wide A-Nation tour throughout August. The group’s debut release, the extended play The…, was released in September 2010, and debuted at number one on Oricon albums charts. The DVD for their Thanksgiving Live in Dome concert sold 116,000 copies and their album The… sold 140,000 albums in the first week after being released, with both debuting at No. 1 on the Oricon DVD and album charts in the same week.
In September 2010, Avex Entertainment announced the suspension all of JYJ’s Japanese activities. Avex claims this stems from issues the label had with the president of the group’s Korean management, C-JeS Entertainment. JYJ stated it was a conflict over new terms demanded by Avex in contract renegotiation.
The group released their English-language global debut album under Warner Music Asia, The Beginning, on October 12, with the Kanye West produced single “Ayyy Girl” as the lead track. JYJ promoted the new album via a worldwide showcase tour throughout October and November with dates in South Korea, Southeast Asia and the United States. Two weeks before the release of the album, 500,000 copies of the regular edition had been pre-ordered and pre-sales for the 99,999-copies of the special edition of The Beginning reached numbers of 400,000 requests.
In spite of a JYJ ban in the Entertainment Departments of Korea’s three main terrestrial broadcasters, JYJ had their first public broadcast performance in South Korea on December 31, 2010 at the 2010 KBS Drama Awards. They sung 찾았다 “Found You” – a ballad track from the drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal which starred Yoochun.
 2011: Worldwide Tour and In Heaven
JYJ released their extended play, Their Rooms, Our Story on January 25, 2011 in the format of a “music essay.” Despite the majority of sales being counted in the books rather than CD category, it sold well enough to chart on Hanteo.
In the spring of 2011, JYJ launched their first Worldwide Tour as a group with concerts held in Thailand, Taiwan, China, Canada, and the United States. In addition, JYJ held 2 rounds of a special charity concert in the middle of the Tour in Toyko to benefit those affected by the Tōhoku Earthquake. They also held two special encore concert performances in South Korea: one in Busan and the other in Gwangju.
In September, JYJ released their second group album and first Korean language album entitled In Heaven. There were over 300, 000 pre-orders on the first day alone of advance sales. The album sold 165,000 copies within 3 days of being released and surpassed 350,000 sales in October.
JYJ held their “Unforgettable Live Concert in Japan” on October 15 and October 16 with over 84,000 in attendance. They were praised for the choice to hold these concerts in Ibaraki Prefecture, a region hard hit economically by the Tohoku Earthquake of 2011. JYJ also extended their World Tour by adding a European leg in October and November with dates in Barcelona, Spain and Berlin, Germany.

 Philanthropy and public service work
 Public campaigns
In August, 2011 JYJ were appointed Goodwill Ambassadors for the United Nations agency UNAIDS. JYJ and UNAIDS launched a social media awareness campaign to combat HIV/AIDS discrimination via Twitter using the hashtag #LoveAlways.
In November and December of 2011, JYJ spearheaded their “Mango Tree Project” working with World Vision and ELLE Korea to gift “mango trees of hope to children” in South Sudan.   JYJ with labelmates Park Yoohwan and Song Jihyo recorded Korean, Japanese, and English videos discussing the project to raise awareness and to encourage donations with the goal of planting 20,000 mango trees ahead of Christmas in South Sudan. The mango trees symbolize hope and provide food and a sheltered meeting spot which can serve as classrooms for children.
 Charitable work
JYJ commemorated their inaugural group tour, The Beginning Showcase World Tour 2010, by donating the profits from the Seoul showcase to World Vision International. The proceeds were taken from the opening two performances at the 11,000 seat Hwaseong Tiger Dome at Korea University which sold out in 15 minutes.
Immediately after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, JYJ also donated ₩600,000,000 to World Vision Japan fulfilling the organization’s entire fundraising goal. JYJ articulated that they wanted to give support and encouragement to Japan in return for all the love and support their Japanese fans have given them over the years; they expressed their hope that their act of giving would encourage others to do so as well. JYJ’s Junsu was also present in Tokyo filming for JYJ’s 3three Voices Season II during the earthquake. In addition, JYJ held 2 rounds of charity concerts in Toyko on June 7, 2011 to benefit those affected by the Tōhoku Earthquake.
After the 2011 Thailand floods, JYJ donated ₩200,000,000 in November 2011 to World Vision, matching and doubling the organization’s fundraising goal for flood relief in Thailand, for the purpose of dispensing emergency food aid, water treatment, mosquito nets and other daily necessities.  Similar to their response to the Tōhoku Earthquake, JYJ sent videos and messages of support to their Thai fans as well.
 Public service
JYJ has been active as honorary ambassadors of various government-run projects as the ‘faces of Korea.’ Along with Kim Yu-na, Park Ji Sung, Park Tae-Hwan, and Edward Kwon, JYJ was appointed to promote the 2010 G-20 Seoul Summit within South Korea. JYJ was appointed as Goodwill Ambassadors for World OKTA (World Overseas Korean Trader’s Association) with President Lee Myung Bak present at the ceremony. They were also appointed as Honorary Ambassadors for Jeju Island’s campaign to be designated one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.
JYJ is also the face of the “2011 Protecting Personal Identity Information Campaign” launched by Korea Communication Commission and the Korea Internet & Security Agency which was aggressively promoted on print, radio, television, and cinema ads.
JYJ are also outreach ambassadors for the Korean Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology in their efforts at improving online youth culture and “creating schools without violence and [purposeful/bullying] exclusion.”
JYJ performed at the first annual Asian Dream Cup organized by Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung‘s JS Foundation using their widespread popularity in Asia to help publicize the event. The proceeds of the charity match were donated to help sport development and support youth players in Vietnam as the JS foundation is seeking to expand its youth football development program and support cultural exchanges for football players around Asia. As a part of this event, JYJ also participated in the one day soccer clinic with young Vietnamese athletes and 15 other star Korean and Japanese footballers. JYJ’s Kim Junsu, a soccer enthusiast and captain of the South Korean entertainers soccer club “FC Men”, played in the match as well.
