[Update] About page and editorial stance

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.

Sincerely,

Ceci, blog founder, editor and writer

Jimmie, writer and Korean translator

Reallaerreal, Vivien, and Starfield, writers

    • wow….THAT was hard…….

      sorry coz i actually don’t understand either….

      BUT the girl who lead the over one hundred cassies who signed the petition to FTC did make it to the news about how the petition did have effects on SM contracts, and that it’s a” victory of fandom”…so….. i don’t know……

  1. thank you so much Ceci, Reallaerreal, Jimmie, Vivien, Starfield, and Pamela. 🙂 🙂 It’s been so hard to find a quiet place for JYJ and fans alone 🙂 🙂 Thanks so much for this 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. I had the same idea. I wanted to create a place where there can be only JYJ fans (the new ones and the old ones), but my blog is in spanish because I’m from Latin America ^^.

    We have to be together for them… Let’s spread the love for JYJ! ^^
    Nice to meet you Cecy, and thanks for this blog 🙂

  3. I’m very touch… at last we have our own place where we can feel very comfortable with to communicate each other. TQ guys, JYJ hardcore fan here really appreciate it a lot…LOL. Sorry Ceci, i couldn’t be any help to you since i haven’t have any related skills so i’ll just be your loyal supporter here.

    * akaDong official statement never properly addressed, would you mind do that here?

  4. Congratulations and thank you for this space. I’ve been very impressed by the articles I’ve seen so far and plan to be a regular reader.

  5. thank u unnies for setting this blog~ fantastics writing ^^ i love u hwaiting to u guys hwaiting to JYJ hwaiting to us to be strong with them

  6. Intriguing thing you got going here. I love it when fandom really applies some intelligence – it makes things so much more interesting!

    Is it possible to submit an article? I’m an admin for another DBSK blog, but I don’t think it’s the proper venue for an op-ed piece.

  7. Ahhhh, it’s good to find a place like this. Thank you Ceci, Reallaerreal, Jimmie, Vivien, Starfield, and Pamela. Thank you Ceci for this site ♥

  8. This idea is so cool. I very much enjoy reading more critical comments on SYC – though sometimes I find they also attract other not-so-nice, rather emotional reactions. Nevertheless, I really think you have identified a ‘gap’ in this fandom’s literature that’s worthy of filling… and I think I’ve read some of the comments from the writers here (assuming you all use similar names on different blogs/twitter) who usually provide nice well-reasoned view points. So I’m looking forward to what you have to write and communicate to us!

  9. Thank you for setting up this blog. I’m a pure JYJ’s fan, finally I find a home for myself (so you can imagine how happy I am now). Once again, thanks Ceci and all writers for your hardwork. My love goes to those who love JYJ…^^

    p.s: As I’m a post SKK Scandal JYJ fan, I can’t call myself a cassie (as it is exclusive for DBSK 5 members fans), just hope that one day the thoughtful writers in this blog will come out with a more sexy name for JYJ’s fans. *Just my little wish*

  10. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Thank you Ceci, Reallaerreal, Jimmie, Vivien, Starfield, and Pamela.

  12. This blog, esp. the admins, has shattered my misconception of kpop fans. I feel so much at ease when I know JYJ has your support behind them! Many, many thanks…
