JYJ’s Jaejoong shared his thoughts on conflicts within idol groups in a recent interview with Star Today.
“Honestly speaking, I don’t think there are any idol groups who don’t experience conflicts. After all, the members are not family, and there will be members who are closer or get along better. In our case, we’re the type to talk about things openly.”
Sharing feelings and thoughts candidly, as opposed to keeping things bottled up, is the secret to good teamwork. Jaejoong then brought up the example of group Shinhwa, whose members have stuck by one another for the past 14 years.
“Not too long ago, Eric hyung uploaded a photo of the whole team, and I replied, ‘The hyungs look great. Shinhwa’s awesome’, after which he replied, ‘We’re just pretending to be close’. I think being able to say that so spontaneously, that’s amazing in itself.”
