110716 A Sudden Cancellation Of JYJ’s Performance Has Fans Fired Up, Leading To A KBS Boycott
JYJ’s fans have been expressing their rage over the cancellation of JYJ’s upcoming broadcasted performance.
On July 16th, JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment uploaded an official notice on their homepage that read, “JYJ were scheduled to appear in a TV special on the 20th as honorary ambassadors of Jeju’s 7 Wonders nomination, but received a notice today, stating that their appearance has been cancelled.”
They continued to say, “We have currently asked the organizer for the specific reason as to why JYJ’s appearance has been suddenly cancelled,” and “We will post another notice as soon as possible once we have confirmed the details behind the situation.”
JYJ were chosen as the honorary ambassadors for Jeju’s nomination as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and have been garnering great attention as they were expected to drastically increase the number of votes that Jeju receives in the poll by the Swiss foundation ‘New 7 Wonders’.
Netizens who heard the news left comments that demanded an answer from KBS that read, “JYJ are superstars who can move thousands of fans all over the world with one or two songs. Because of KBS’ thoughtless decision to notify JYJ of the cancellation mere days before the event, we demand that they tell us what division of their broadcasting company will compensate the losses in time and money that fans face as they either cancel plane tickets, resulting in a need to pay cancellation charges, or as they are already in Jeju“, and “JYJ are Korean singers. So what is the reason that they cannot appear on Korean channels? They are more talented than most groups and are the honorary ambassadors of Jeju. If KBS can’t give a proper reason as to why JYJ’s performance has been cancelled, then they must allow them to perform.“
Other netizens stated, “Wasn’t the point of getting Jeju chosen as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World to let the world know of Korea’s top-quality natural wonders, encouraging growth in the tourism industry in the process? What will they do now about the disappointment they have given to JYJ’s international fans?” and “Many of my JYJ fan friends who are international fans are showing their anger at Korea’s unbelievable system. They have already bought plane tickets and made reservations in hotels to see JYJ perform. What will you do now? Korea and Jeju Island’s image is only getting worse in the eyes of foreigners.”
