SEOUL – The boy band JYJ has been accused of abusing their fans verbally and physically according to Korean culture media sites. The three members, Jaejoong, Yoochun and Joonsu were formally of the popular boy band TVXQ.
According to allkpop.com, "Dispatch released an article earlier today titled, “JYJ, Acquisition of Fan-Violence Audio Recordings… ‘Kim Jaejoong – Park Yoochun, Cussing and Hitting”, accounting the acts of violence and the cussing by the JYJ members against saseng fans (fans that go way beyond the norm, and invade the privacy of celebrities by stalking their every move).
Soompi.com also noted that "Sounds of Jaejoong hitting the fans, as well as the whimpering of the female fans were also recorded in the audio. Yoochun’s voice can also be heard saying profanities to the sasaeng fans, as well as Junsu’s voice of exasperation toward the fans."
The audio file is believed to have been made in 2009, around the time of TVXQ's demise.
Their debut Japanese EP The… reached No. 1 on the Japanese Oricon albums chart. The band's global debut album, The Beginning, was released in October 2010. JYJ's second studio album and first Korean full-length album In Heaven was released on September 28, 2011.
