C-JeS Ent. clears misunderstandings between Lee Seungchul fans and Junsu fans regarding Im In Love remake

C-JeS Ent. clears misunderstandings between Lee Seungchul fans and Junsu fans regarding Im In Love remake

C-JeS Ent. clears misunderstandings between Lee Seungchul fans and Junsu fans regarding “I’m In Love” remake

Fans of Lee Seungchul and Junsu from JYJ have been arguing over Lee Seungchul’s remake of Junsu’s song, “I’m In Love”, and thus on the 18th of June, C-JeS Entertainment announced their side of the story to clear up any misunderstandings.

Junsu’s song “I’m In Love” in his 2nd solo album was remade by Lee Seungchul for the OST of the SBS drama, “You’re All Surrounded”. On the 29th of May, this permitted remake was featured on the drama for the first time and released as a single on the 5th of June, however there had been no mention of how it was actually a remake of Junsu’s original song, “I’m In Love”. Thus, Junsu’s fans started questioning why Junsu had not been properly credited for the song, which then soon turned in to a heated argument on whether or not it was intentionally not credited.

Upon hearing about the clash of both artists’ fans, Lee Seungchul uploaded a message for his fans on his official fan cafe, in which he wrote:

"I’m sure you are all very exhausted due to the issue with Junsu’s fans about the remake. It has always been a conventional practice to not include the original artist’s name on a remake song. There’s no respect for an artist at the age of 50 who has been in the industry for 30 years."

Furthermore, Lee Seungchul also mentioned this issue on a radio program, in which Junsu’s fans were very unhappy with Lee Seungchul’s attitude on approaching the issue. Thus, Lee Seungchul further tweeted “To those who are angered by what I said with a smile. Who are you actually agitated for? It’s like you’re trying to stop me and Junsu from ever meeting again.”

C-JeS Entertainment announced on the 18th of June that they had not made any objections to Lee Seungchul’s remake of the song, and Junsu had found it an honor for Lee Seungchul to be remaking his song.

Furthermore, on a notice by the OST production company, Lee Seungchul’s remake of “I’m In Love” was listed as a “New Song”, however upon seeing this notice, C-JeS Entertainment requested the company to change the song information so that it included the correct information.

C-JeS Entertainment also explained that the misleading information on the OST production company’s site triggered such responses from Junsu’s fans, and all they wanted was that Junsu had received the proper credits for his song.

They also explained that both Junsu and Lee Seungchul would have no need to be directly involved in this, and that it was not a planned response as a form of noise marketing.

Finally, they hoped that this misunderstanding had been cleared and that both artists’ fans stopped quarreling.
