[Trans] 110729 KBS, The Reason For JYJ’s Performance Cancellation Is?
KBS has given its explanations against criticisms about the sudden cancellation of group JYJ’s participation in the Jeju 7 Wonders performance.
On 28 July, KBS responded to the request for an explanation for the sudden cancellation of JYJ’s participation in KBS 1TV’s “Challenge the New 7 Wonders Of The Natural World, This is Jeju.” JYJ was “supposed to participate in the KBS Jeju-produced special broadcast “Challenge the New 7 Wonders Of The Natural World, This is Jeju,” but this was cancelled by the production team.” and “the reason for this was that SNSD and f(x) whom we had initially planned to invite, replied on 15 July informing us about their availability to perform,” they explained.
“Because Jeju is an island, there is high demand for pop culture icons, but compared to Seoul and other cities, there is less availability. When we were contacted about the possibility of SNSD and f(x) performing, the production team decided that it would be a good chance to showcase such big stars on the program.” Also, “Currently, SNSD and f(x) are developing in Europe, so it was decided that they would be more effective in letting the World know about Jeju, which is currently challenging for a spot in the “New 7 Wonders of the Natural World.” and “On 16 July, around 9am, we contacted the JYJ management representative over the telephone and expressed our sincere apologies,” they announced.
The production team said, “The production PD has full authority over the negotiations and decides on the appearance list, and for the sake of a well-rounded program, we decided on the more effective artist. Things are changing even as the program is underway, and this could happen even if it’s just 5 minutes before the live broadcast.” they insisted.
After seeing this, fans said, “This is a reason that lacks logic, and will only fuel criticism” “It was already in the preparation stage of the event, and this not just about JYJ, whose performance was suddenly cancelled, but an act to cheat all artists.” “If anything, these vindications are just killing the JYJ fans once more” and other comments, demanding for a public apology from KBS.
On 20 July, JYJ were scheduled to perform as the appointed ambassadors, and sing 2 songs. However, KBS removed JYJ, and artists from SM Entertainment, the management company that JYJ were involved in a exclusive contract dispute with, SNSD and f(x) performed.
