From 2003 – 2009, Yoochun sang in South Korean boy band TVXQ, known as Dong Bang Shin Ki (DBSK) in South Korea and Tohoshinki in Japan. In July 2009, Yoochun and two of his bandmates, Jaejoong and Junsu, filed a lawsuit against their South Korean label, SM Entertainment. Through their lawyers, the members stated that the 13-year contract was excessively long, schedules were held out without the confirmation or permission of the members, contract terms have been extended and changed without their knowledge or consent and that the group’s earnings were not fairly distributed to the members. After Tohoshinki’s Japanese label announced a group hiatus in early 2010, they formed a new three member group initially known as JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN in Japan. Currently, the main lawsuit concerning the three members’ contract with SM Entertainment is still ongoing.



In September 2010, JYJ released extended play The…, which debuted at number one on Japan’s Oricon album charts. However, Avex had announced the suspension of all the group’s activities in Japan, the same month that year.

JYJ proceeded to release The Beginning, a global album which was sung in English. JYJ promoted the new album via a worldwide showcase tour throughout October and November with dates in South Korea, Southeast Asia and the United States.
In January 25, 2011, JYJ released Korean extended play Their Rooms “Our Story”.” JYJ’s second group album and first full length Korean-language album In Heavenwas released September 28, 2011.

Starting from April, Yoochun toured Asia and North America for JYJ’s first Worldwide Tour. The tour is then extended to Europe and South America, adding another four stops in Spain, Germany, Chile and Peru.

Beside as a singer, Yoochun is also active as an actor since 2010.
