Things could be about to get real awkward for JYJ and TVXQ. The former bandmates are set to come face to face for the first time since their 2009 split.
JYJ’s Jae Joong, Yoochun and Junsu will walk the same carpet as their former TVXQ bandmates Yunho and Max Changmin at the premier for upcoming feature film Big Match on November 24.
The JYJ boys will attend the film premier alongside actor Lee Jung Jae from their agency CJeS Entertainment, while the TVXQ duo will represent SM Entertainment alongside BoA who also stars in the film.
The tension in the air will no doubt be palpable as it will be the first full rendezvous of the once TVXQ-united boy band idols since the JYJ boys filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and went their own way in 2009.

“It had been a choice for each of our [respective] lives,” Yoochun has said of the split, which reportedly saw the two camps fall out. “I have no inclination to hate now. I truly hope they all are happy.”
No doubt all eyes will be on the five former bandmates as they walk the Big Match carpet next week.
