Regarding the cancellation of JYJ’s appearance in the ‘Jeju 7 Natural Wonders of the World Nomination KBS Special’, KBS Jeju have revealed their official stance.
A representative of KBS Jeju who is in charge of the special program stated in a phone conversation with MyDaily on the 17th, “Girls’ Generation and f(x) were pushing for an appearance on the program but were unable to due to their schedules. But in the process of preparing for the program, they stated last-minute that they were able to perform,” and “It is the cultural duty of our broadcasting company to introduce many stars to our viewers. We took into consideration what would be most effective for the program as a whole.” This was the explanation that KBS Jeju gave to explain that Girls’ Generation and f(x)’s appearances were what cancelled JYJ’s appearance.
He continued to emphasize that KBS Jeju sent JYJ an official apology, stating, “We have already expressed our sincere apologies to JYJ.”
In a phone conversation with a representative of the Jeju Island’s local government, which is a co-sponsor of the KBS event, stated, “We don’t know anything about the issue. What power or right do we have to ask celebrities to perform in the show? This is something that KBS Jeju did.”
This representative also said, “The local government of Jeju Island has been receiving a flood of complaints on its official homepage because of this happening, but this isn’t something we did,” and expressed that they were being accused of a false charge. There have been many worries that this controversy will negatively affect the number of votes Jeju Island receives for the 7 Natural Wonders of the World poll.
