DOTS90-Senator Kim Jae Yoon condemns KBS, calls for clarification + apology

On July 21st, the controversy surrounding KBS’s cancellation of JYJ’s broadcast appearance was addressed by Senator Kim Jae Yoon from the Jeju Island parliament, and an apology from KBS was demanded.

Senator Kim Jae Yoon stated, “JYJ were scheduled to appear on a special broadcast on the 20th, yet was suddenly cancelled 4 days before the event, causing Hallyu fans to voice their statements and bringing such international embarrassment.”

He continued, “The media has raised speculation of external pressures. The situation became more controversial as groups from JYJ’s former entertainment company, whom JYJ are on trial with, replaced JYJ.”

Furthermore, he stated, “KBS formally announced that the reason is because of popularity [ie. SNSD and f(x) are more popular than JYJ] but they deserve criticism for not having ‘clear criteria’ for their broadcasts and going against the promise they made to citizens.”

Senator Kim ended with, “KBS must apologize to citizens, domestic fans and international fans for forsaking their promise and causing international embarrassment. Now reveal and clearly explain the reason for cancelling JYJ.”
