[TRANS] 100426 Yu Kigoshi’s Blog Update
A Message from Yunho’s Father
NOTES FROM THE STAFF TEAM:
T/N: Yu Kigoshi, born 1981. He is a writer in a publishing company, and also the author for the books “The Secrets of Tohoshinki Part 1” and “Part 2”. Some of our friends should remember that he collected encouraging comments to send to Yunho and Yunho’s father in Dec 2009 – Jan 2010.
T/N #2: Yunho’s father’s message was written before the news of the new unit was announced by avex. The blog entry was translated directly from Japanese, while Yunho's father's message was translated directly from Korean. We have made sure to keep the translation as accurate as possible to it's original form.
T/N #3: Before reading, one request from the staff team, please. When we introduced Kigoshi-san’s activities of sending messages to Yunho and Yunho’s father in Jan, we were sad to see some negative comments and groundless bad mouthing in some of the English sites, criticizing Kigoshi-san’s activities, which were especially for Yunho and Yunho’s father. Kigoshi-san seems to have seen them, too. We sincerely hope that all of our friends hold respect to those who are using their precious time for us fans. Thank you very much.
Yunho's Father's Message
Thank you Kigoshi Yu for your letter.
Although we were planning to meet when you came over to Korea, unfortunately I was unable to get time off from work, so we have put it off until next time.
When we were supposed to meet, you were going to tell me how the Japanese fans want TVXQ to continue. I, too, am praying that this problem will be resolved quickly, and that TVXQ can once again resume their activities not only in Korea, Japan, and Asia, but also worldwide.
However, it has come to my attention that there are many people who has the wrong idea about this matter; that’s why I am writing this letter with hopes of explaining it, even if just a bit.
Fans and many others are aware of the case with TVXQ. This is about the three members of TVXQ who are in a contract with SM Entertainment, and during the contract period, are embroiled in a legal dispute which has put the whole group (TVXQ) into jeopardy.
The members of TVXQ who are not involved in the dispute, Yunho and Changmin, are receiving most of the damage and they are hoping that this incident will be satisfactorily settled for TVXQ’s continuation. They wish that the members involved and SM Entertainment would be aware that they are leaders in the Hallyu wave, and would think of the love and support from their fans up to now, and return to how they were in the beginning so that they could come to an agreement and resolve this.
This situation can only be resolved by SM Entertainment and the three members who are involved in the legal dispute.
As Yunho, Changmin and their parents have already stated in the press release on 11th of November 2009, TVXQ has a contract with SM Entertainment, and because we believe that promises and trust are important, we are waiting, in order to protect TVXQ.
If everything gets settled and the three members do return, they have still endangered TVXQ as a group, and have prevented them from doing any activities in Korea for a year, and finally, they have had to stop activities in Japan as well. In doing so, they have inflicted much harm in the moral, financial, reputational, and psychological aspects. However, because the most important thing is to protect TVXQ, we are willing to forgive and understand them for their actions.
It seems like there are people who think that in order to keep TVXQ together, the other two members must leave SM Entertainment. However, there are no moral or legal rights that will prove this claim.
In human relationships, your faith and promises become a priority, and there are principles in commerce/deals. If both sides agree to something, and there are no big problems, it is socially and morally unacceptable for you to thoughtlessly break that promise for your own gain.
SM Entertainment has made TVXQ the most popular group in Korea from the very beginning, and over the past six years have enabled them to become top artists in Korea, Japan, and the whole of Asia. They have turned the five members from an unknown group to top artists.
Also, TVXQ members are all bound to a contract, and Yunho and Changmin do not think that there are enough problems with SM Entertainment to breach their contract, and leave the company.
If there are parts that need adjustments, they could have talked it over to improve it, but they didn't
