JYJ’s rejection of radio show appearance creates controversy
JYJ’s rejection of appearance request on KBS Cool FM “Yoo Heeyeol’s Radio Paradise” sparks a public controversy.
Just last week, “Radio Paradise” held a TVXQ & JYJ special airing during the radio’s program “Midnight Restaurant.” Producer Yoon Sanghyun said, “These days some people talk about TVXQ building JYJ fans while the opposite party also claims that it’s JYJ who builds TVXQ fans, causing a strange atmosphere. Therefore, on today’s ‘Midnight Restaurant,’ let’s decorate the show by alternating the songs between the two teams TVXQ and JYJ.”
During the broadcast, Yoon Sanghyun revealed, “‘Radio Heaven’ has made phone calls with JYJ’s manager a few times to talk about broadcast instructions for regular appearance, yet in the end they couldn’t make it,” arousing the curiosity of JYJ’s fans.
Currently, JYJ faces a difficult situation where group activities broadcast are being hindered. JYJ faced another controversy when their scheduled reality show program that was about to air in cable channel QTV was put to a halt. Considering such a situation, JYJ’s representatives rejecting an appearance in a popular radio program has been drawing a lot of attention.
A JYJ representative explained to Newsen, “At this point, I really don’t understand why this appearance request story got distorted, but we would never avoid this appearance request intentionally. There are many reasons behind whether or not an artist is able to appear on a show. When an artist are unable to attend despite being requested, it’s just an usual situation.”
The representative continued, “JYJ is craving for broadcast appearances and highly desires for chances to have broadcast activities. However, this year the members have been committed in frequent activities, like Junsu with his musical activities schedule. Thus, it’s impossible for them to make the appearance.” He said, “There seems to be a misunderstanding in the communication process. If the program fits the group’s images and schedule, we will be willing to appear at anytime.”
