While some fans were happy and surprised to see Changmin liking the post, some fans of JYJ showed a rather sharp reaction to it. This is because it may cause rumors of a reunion of the five members.
Other than that, a few JYJ fans pointed out that Max Changmin previously said that Kim Junsu is not a respectful human being after he labeled Lee Soo Man and the company staff as "enemies."
As negative reactions continued, TVXQ Changmin abruptly canceled the like on the Instagram post. The netizen who made the post also confirmed that the male idol did remove his like.
Meanwhile, TVXQ debuted as a five-member group in December 2003, however, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu parted ways with the band in July 2009 after battling with SM Entertainment in terms of their exclusive contracts.
After leaving TVXQ, the three idols formed the new band JYJ but Yoochun left the group and the industry in 2019 after reports stated that he had tested positive for drugs.
