The JYJ Files is an opinion and editorial blog about the JYJ fandom. We, the bloggers, are fans seeking a corner of the internet to share our views about anything related to JYJ: our thoughts on JYJ’s music and their fans, as well as our take on past and current issues regarding JYJ.
I started this blog because I felt that amidst all the news sites serving the TVXQ and JYJ fandom, there existed a void for a site that provides and catalyzes discourse about the meaty matters within fandom. While there are personal opinion blogs devoted to the JYJ fandom, most of them are informal, updated irregularly, and reflect only one person’s viewpoint. As the adage goes, “two heads are better than one” and I thought to myself: why not have a whole team of thoughtful writers with different frames of references come together in one blog? I suckered invited the writers listed below to join me in this haphazard plan and they graciously accepted my invitation, having no idea exactly what they were in for. Thus, The JYJ Files was created.
In addition to writing op-eds, we will write some factual pieces when the need arises. Most of these articles will revolve around our best attempts at clearing misinformation floating around in fandom. It is hard to have all the facts but we will do our best to research thoroughly in order to elucidate new fans that are curious about the past issues surrounding JYJ. Furthermore, these articles will strive to dig deeper into rumors and hearsay so that fans are better equipped to weed out the fiction from facts. Our objective is to provide our readers with the truth to the best of our abilities but sometimes what we write cannot be guaranteed as 100% truth because that is heavily dependent on our sources. We will seek to use the most trustworthy sources but on occasion, even the most trustworthy ones could turn out to be quite the opposite. As such, please read with an open and critical mind and don’t be afraid to speak up. This is, after all, a place created to encourage the exchange of ideas.
Thank you for visiting our blog. We’re still in our infancy and learning as we go along so please excuse our flaws. We hope our posts will generate more dialogue, friendship, and understanding among fans of Junsu, Yoochun and Jaejoong.
