Text Version :

Good afternoon. This is the last day of my ascetic practice. Only week, but it may have changed my viewpoint a bit for the rest of my life.

I got a call from Mr. Chiba, CSO. We talked about Twitter and how we can best use it. I’ve decided to read, but not reply to, expressions of opinion and criticisms. When I receive helpful opinions from our customers and fans I will forward them to the right people in our company. They will address issues and respond if needed. We believe we should use Twitter effectively and in a friendly way.

Many customers have very strong feelings about Tohoshinki and other artists. I’m not always the best person to answer them. Twitter isn’t always the best place for addressing concerns or making statements – some contracts have very strict non-disclosure language.

For example, there may have not been enough explanation about JJY, but as a listed company we can freely release only limited information. We abstained from making contentious comments, even though there were some differences of opinion between the other party and ourselves.

As CEO of avex I was blamed by the fans. It made me consider my responsibilities and I honestly felt that sometimes they were too much. That pressure caused some emotional Tweeting. But I do want the fans to be able to vent by telling me their anxious feelings or complaints.

I’ll continue listen to all opinions and complaints, but I may use the blocking function for people who apparently attack me personally.

I want this Twitter account to be fun and use it to receive valuable opinions from all of you. Thank you very much for your understanding.

TVXQ’s members, Micky YooCheon, Xiah Junsu, Hero JaeJoong signed a contract with CJes Entertainment and thereby forming JYJ. On the 12th, they mark the start of their first World Tour Showcase at GoRyo University. After the end of the showcase, on the 13th, masatomatsuura posted a tweet at his twitter page saying “I opened my heart and spoke to them but I was betrayed like nothing happened. It’s important to have trust. Especially when you’re in such an industry, trust is a must. I had wished that I can speak of the matters someday.” Adding on he tweeted “Losing is winning. Even it is so now, someday things will change. The strength that allows me to endure such humiliation is perseverance and training. Someday, I will tell these stuck-ups off. Because I will not lose in the end. I’m just talking to myself.” And he added, “If there’s no pain, it’s not interesting.”

For JYJ fans who have seen those messages, they replied harsh messages like “I start to hate Japan.”, “JYJ is so pitiful”, “Bad guy” [this word is not very pleasant in Korean.] But masatomatsuura replied saying “You’ll get your retribution.” “Please be careful of what you say.” With that, a fight of resentment has started.

AVEX has expressed on the 16th sept that because of the law issues that CJes is involved in and the on-going contract issues with SME, AVEX has used these reasons to express that they will stop JYJ’s activities in Japan. With that JYJ expressed on 17th Sep that “we have no intentions to stop our activities in Japan and we had abided with all our contract terms faithfully. But from a few months back onwards, AVEX has started to stress that the contract terms were unreasonable and one-sidedly decided to stop the contract and even issued released news saying that we will be stopping our activities.”

Yesterday, I was asked by a Toho fan who’s a Vietnamese highschool student for an autograph. As always, I’m suprised and deeply impressed by Toho’s amazing popularity.

Read from bottom to top

masatomatsuura Without limiting certain companies, to try and sign contracts, there are companies that will say completely different things. To the end, that is the common opinion. RT @a_milky: @masatomatsuura You already knew the actual condition of C-jes, so why did you still sign on JYJ?><

masatomatsuura There are a lot of things I want to say. However, I will stop now. Although I’m sorry that among the Tohoshinki fans, there are people who feel displeased (t/n: precise meaning of the word is discomfort) with me, but can’t you please unfollow me? But of course, this is the individual’s freedom.

masatomatsuura From now on, for me, even if there’s anything, I will definitely not speak ill about them.

masatomatsuura Everyone, anyone, you’ve had the experience where you date someone and they turned out to be the worst, right? At that time, when you find out, if you said that it is wrong to swiftly change courses, then in the inevitable future, it might become something worse. However, making the decision is difficult. For this matter, I’m just talking about a general opinion and has nothing to do with Tohoshinki.

masatomatsuura The termination of the trio’s contracts does no good for the profit of sales and is a big blow to avex. However, as a socially responsible company listed on the stock exchange, this was the only choice we could make.
