[NEWS] 121009 The National Para Games apologizes to JYJ’s Junsu and his fans

The National Para Games Group has posted an apology on their website to apologize to JYJ‘s Junsu and his fans.

On October 8th, Junsu was set to perform as the finale stage at the opening of the 32nd National Para Games – Gyeonggi Province.
However, many fans had problems with Junsu’s final stage, starting from the lighting of the stage up to the way his stage was filmed. To answer the fans rising anger, presumably, the chief officer of the National Para Games uploaded the following apology.

"I’m very sorry.

As the chief officer, I apologize to everyone for not handling the 32nd National Para Games’ opening ceremony on October 8th with ease, causing concerns in delay and order maintenance.

Also, I apologize to Kim Junsu (XIA) and all the fans that came from all over the world early in the morning.

I will reflect on this and make sure nothing like this ever happens again.

I will give you an explanation pertaining to JYJ’s Kim Junsu (XIA).
Unaffiliated with the radio broadcasting, from the beginning we chose Kim Junsu (XIA) as the artist that would decorate the ending (finale) stage because he is popular and famous, we directly recruited him from his label C-JES. His label C-JES made a difficult decision in letting him appear even though there was short notice before the event because the Para Games was a meaningful event.

During the recruitment process, we recruited JYJ’s Kim Junsu (XIA) from his label CJES through various steps in event planning. During the recruitment process, we confirmed his attendance by sending him information on the meaning and purpose of the Games, as well as the event schedule, and came to a mutual agreement. Also, we reached an adequate agreement about the opening program while we were discussing his recruitment. Two days before the concert, we received his performance music to heighten the quality of the performance. We set up the spotlight memory settings and VJ video separately, and took the lighting, sound, camera, and all other systems to the finale stage.

On introducing Kim Junsu (XIA), the label agreed two days prior to the event that following the live broadcast, Kim Junsu (XIA) would be introduced after the closing ment live radio broadcast, and Kim Chang Ryul would introduce him as the broadcast MC. Before Kim Junsu’s final stage, the contents were agreed with the label on the point of when he would appear on the stage.

On the promotional items, his recruitment was not confirmed until there was only a short period of time left before the event, so his name was not included in the original promotional material. However, later promotional material and cards were created with his inclusion. After the conclusion of the after-meal event, after the departure of the main guests, there were many empty seats remaining, causing a bit of chaos. I apologize for not thinking that such a situation could occur, and apologize for causing discomfort to the guests. I have warned the security team to sincerely apologize to the CEO. I believe that the camera cleaning scenes that some guests saw was because the KBS team moved their cameras after the main event (KBS only filmed the main event). The celebratory event was filmed by us, and I will tell you that we did not miss any footage up to the very end, including Kim Junsu (XIA).

However, I apologize again for not giving detailed information on the entire situation. You may corroborate this information with the C-JES label. I thank C-JES and Kim Junsu (XIA) for attending the Para Games with meaning and interest even with their busy schedules, and I am very sorry to have caused a disturbance to everyone who participated in the event."

However, the apology seemed to anger fans even more. Many fans wondered if the apology was really from the head officer, as it was uploaded onto a free board where anyone could write, and also could easily get lost. Some fans even pointed out that C-JES was not a label, but an agency, and demanded a more proper apology. Many international fans flocked to the website in support of Junsu as well.

  1. i think it's *possible* that C-JeS and Junsu agreed that Junsu's performance wouldn't be filmed for broadcast. BUT, i think the event coordinators and SBS (i thought it was?) should have handled the situation differently. the way it played out just drew too much attention to the fact that Junsu was totally being shafted.

    i don't know that i buy this apology as "official" because there isn't a real signature at the bottom of it. if you're going to publish a genuine and official apology, sign the official's name. 9_9

  2. Ok.. but didnt they announce this other guest to be the last performer before Junsu was introduced? That is what makes the whole situation awkward I guess..
    And personally I think it's quite rude for the KBS team to pack all their stuff when there's still another performer.. even though they didnt have to film it.. it makes people think that it's really over, so they left, which created chaos and a lot of empty seats when Junsu performed..

    Anyway, I dont know a lot about the whole situation, so the only thing I can say is, this was really badly organised..

  3. I, too, think that CJES and JS agreed beforehand that they were to perform at the end and that it would be after the live broadcast....of course this doesn't make it any more right, but I do believe fans need to calm down as well..they've already apologized publicly (which takes guts...who cares if it's signed or whatever?) and I don't see why fans would be more angry...I don't want other companies to see JS as "hard to work with" and lessen his chances to perform even more. This news has already gotten the attention that it deserves.

  4. Well I don't think is like that. The TV station filmed all the other groups. Announced ZEA as the last group and after they left is when the MC came and said that Junsu was the last one.
    Their apology is groundless. And how many time JYJ have to take all the apologies? They srew JYJ over and over agan and then they apologise and is all good? no is not.

    I think it didn't get half the attention it deserved. Did KBS apologised?
    Not yet.

  5. ^well that's the thing...the wrong ppl are apologizing...and SBS claims they taped JS, so they didn't leave (apparently)....but I definately think the only way they can prove that is if they air JS's performance.

    Sorry for my comment full of anger!
    but is so unfair!

  7. If it's true then both sides, even Junsu, handle pourly the situation.
    C-JeS should clarify the situation by now, more they should have done it from the first moment they confirmed Junsu's presence... so fans would stop blaming everyone and "kill" the guilty one.

    There's a good part that no one seemed to pay atention: Yes Junsu's part wasn't broadcast but Junsu WAS ON STAGE! The companies of the other artists didn't threat to pull out of their artists! Compare to July 2011 it is a little step forward.

  8. oh please for whoever that said Junsu/C-Jes know about it....just stop commenting about this matter coz u sound ????

  9. they'll do cruel things and then say 'sorry'???! are they kidding us?! so stupid!!!

  10. Without a official head or a signature how can we know it was a real letter? That way its were importance
