Who is entitled to use the name ‘TVXQ’?

* This post will help you to understand the current use of the name TVXQ by the two members & SM(& maybe HoTels too), and general change of Korean Fandom toward them.

JYJ have legal right to use the name of TVXQ as well as the other two. They just DO NOT use it, and it doesn’t mean they cannot. Why do you think they did not decide to use TVXQ, a highly noted name which could have helped in their new steps? Let’s find out what JYJ think about this.

<Interviews of JYJ regarding two members’ using the name TVXQ>

[E-Daily] Title: “We wish a good luck for the TVXQ duo”

Q.Were you not sad when you heard the news about the comeback [TVXQ ACT II]?

A) Actually we considered whether we would use the name TVXQ or JYJ. We thought of using TVXQ, but we also thought that it would not be courteous to the other two members as well as our fans. We thought TVXQ would only be completed when all five members are together. Now that TVXQ is coming back as a duo, the possibility of TVXQ with all five members is gone. I feel a little bit sad about that. (Junsu)

Q. The other two members of TVXQ at SM are starting their promotion from January. 
What do you feel about this?

A) We wish them good luck. It is good news that they start their activities and we would like to support [them.] But honestly, it’s sad that they decided to use the name TVXQ. We don’t want to draw lines like that they are TVXQ and we are JYJ because we’re also TVXQ before JYJ. We think the name ‘TVXQ’ would only be meaningful when all the five members are together. We were thought hard about our new name, and finally made the decision to use JYJ which just stands for the three’s own names rather than TVXQ because of this reason. So we have mixed and sad emotions.


JYJ could raise an objection against the two and SM using the name of TVXQ without any of their consent at any time.  But they just did not do so, as a sign of respect for the decisions made by the members of TVXQ.

Fans had thought the same. It was every fan’s absolute belief that TVXQ would be meaningful only when the five members are together. If the two members sincerely had wanted to carry on ‘TVXQ’s legitimacy’ as they insisted, they should have at least asked for some kind of understanding, or taken thoughtful steps in order NOT to hurt the other members as well as fans who stood firm in their belief. 

It’s nothing to do with whether JYJ would use TVXQ in the future or not.
This post was written to help international fans to understand how fans in Korea
(including fans who supported OT5) started to be disappointed with TVXQ Act 2.  

Even though the two and SM had no legal rights to use the name, they released ‘5th Album of TVXQ.’ Surely, these are not the only mistakes Yunho, Changmin, and SM have made. Yunho and Changmin, especially, have no one else to blame but themselves for the current, not-so-friendly popular sentiments in the TVXQ fandom regarding TVXQ Act II, as they have returned loyal fans’ unrelenting support with lack of courtesy, inconsideration, and disrespect.

    Did someone post it on allkpop and send it to JYJ and let them know about this?

    OMG thank you for this. I would try to tell some fans this but they would just brush it off.

    I feel total the same way.

    this is brilliant.

    its so true! if you said this to homin fans theyd just get angry and say they deserve it more D: but if homin really wanted to so to say “keep TVXQ safe” they would have realized that its not just a name its the people in it…if they really cared about tvxq, they would be together with JYJ fighting for themselves together, not fighting for an empty name (now) and pretending theyre tvxq….

    (rant lol) but im just so….mad at them D:
    this is brilliant anyways 🙂

    JYJ made it pretty clear they wanted to be considered ex-members in their USA promotions.
    They named themselves JYJ since the beginning, not JYJ from TVXQ, not JYJ from DBSK , not JYJ from Tohoshinki.
    They have said countless times they are more happy than ever, more happy than when they were in TVXQ, more free.
    The point never was who has the right to TVXQ,DBSK, Tohoshinki name, that’s only a name.
    The point was who wanted to keep preserving the TVXQ,DBSK, Tohoshinki ESSENCE and IDENTITY, keep being faithful to their korean and asian roots, to the music, dancing and overall style that made the group UNIQUE.
    That’s exactly what Yunho and Changmin are trying to do and doing it right.
    They are still the handsome KOREAN guys that make music with an ASIAN taste.

    How easy is to forget that JYJ did all that they could to distance themselves from TVXQ image, the music style, the SMP dance, even the korean language.
    They went and tried to conquer America and now you want to make us forget that?
    Forget how easy was for them to forget Korea and Japan then, I don’t remember them or their fans begging for korean shows when they were gloating about Kanye and Timbaland.

    You want them to claim a name that they didn’t seem to miss that much before.
    Why?
    I think I know why.
    I know why because I saw this coming a mile away.

    You want them to reclaim the name because they FAILED.

    They failed in their crazy dreams of conquering America.

    Now they have lost a lot. They have lost Korea, Japan and are in the process to lose another asian countries
    And this is not happening because Yunho and Changmin are using a fucking name or singing an old song.
    This is happening because JYJ did a lot of things wrong after doing just one thing right, and that was to sue.
    Yunho and Changmin are showing they don’t need them anymore and certainly don’t need the JCS bless to success.
    That’s a pill hard to swallow but the truth nevertheless.
    JCS choose to leave.
    Good riddance.

    Your words are illogical in every part, because you missed the point in the first place.
    The point certainly IS who has the right to TVXQ, regardless of possibilities whether JYJ would ever use TVXQ or not.
    The point is that TVXQ cannot be used by ANYONE unless all FIVE members agree, and the certain side is absolutely violating this at the moment, while the other side is keeping the truth legally and respectfully.

    You said it is just a name. Then can you explain why the two are so desperately obsessed with ‘only a name’?

    Is this your (or their) way of ‘preserving the TVXQ ESSENCE and IDENTITY’?

    In Korea, the prestige of TVXQ was gone a long time ago, because the two made TVXQ a lip-sync-dance group, even more harshly criticized than any third-rate-singers in Korea and became an object of ridicule in general public.
    Now they are far beyond of hope to regain previous reputation, even JYJ’s bless for their success cannot help anymore.

    It was too big burden on the two to carry the reputation of TVXQ, because of their lack of ability which shows no development. The identity and legitimacy of TVXQ died on the moment of their comeback as the two.

    Do you think they are doing it right?
    I seriously advise you to accept the reality for your better life, that it was Yunho and Changmin who diminished TVXQ’s identity.
    And Plz tell your two members that if they want to ‘keep preserving the TVXQ ESSENCE and IDENTITY’ as you say, try not to damage the TVXQ people once highly admired in the past.

    Finally let me kindly remind of you again, the two lost their faith in Koran fandom, now the only fans they have are the royal fans called ‘HoTels’ who cannot even filled seats for a small joint-performance in a theme park.

    look, i’m a JYJ fan, but i don’t hate Homin.
    i ‘m not liking/agreeing with a lot of JYJ’s decisions either, and when Homin said that they’re protecting TVXQ’s name, i believe many of us know that they are sincere.
    your comment tho, it is so one-sided, biased, and some parts of it are plain ridiculous. i’m pretty sure no rational Homin fan would agree with you :/
