[Full Text] National Para Games Organizers Issues Apology  Over JYJ’s Kim Junsu Apparent Shunning

The translated statement in full can be read below:

We deeply apologize.

We were unable to oversee the smooth progression of the opening ceremony of the 32nd National Para Games on October 8, which caused a lot of concern over time and maintenance and for this, as organizers of the event, we would like to say we are truly sorry.

Also, in addition to Kim Junsu (Xia), we would like to apologize once more for the fans from all over who came even from the morning for this event.

We will ensure that such an incident never occurs again.

The following is a response we would like to give to JYJ Kim Junsu (Xia).

Regardless of any relations with radio or public broadcasting, we had long deliberated on the final ending (finale) artist who showed both popularity and fame which was why we directly contacted C-Jes to request for Kim Junsu, after deciding on Kim Junsu, and C-Jes Entertainment also made a difficult decision but agreed to send Kim Junsu for the meaningful event for the disabled.

During the recruiting process we were also planning with other agencies and companies, in addition to JYJ’s Kim Junsu and C-Jes, for this event and came to settle on a full schedule for the opening ceremony after discussions with all parties.

Additionally, after fully concluding recruiting negotiations, we received the performance MRs two days before the event and to ensure a high quality performance, we carefully planned the lighting memory setting, VJ video separately and oversaw all the lighting, audio, camera and all the system for the finale stage.

As for Kim Junsu being introduced after the ending of the broadcast, we discussed this and both sides came to an agreement that following the radio broadcast’s recording and after the closing words, Kim Junsu would be introduced by Kim Chang Ryul and we proceeded as such after reaching an agreement with [C-Jes] on how and when Kim Junsu would emerge.

As for the marketing material, [Kim Junsu] agreed to perform just a few days before the day of the event which was why he was absent from the initial printing and why we later rushed to print out additional marketing material and plank cards with him included in it.

And regarding the guests leaving after the event’s conclusion and the order becoming disorderly, we were unable to think to that extent and we apologize for those that came first.

We have issued an apology to the CEO of the security guard agency.

And on the cameras packing up, which a few of the event’s guests saw, the supervising broadcast station, KBS, left after the official end of the event (KBS only records the official events).

The congratulatory events are all fully recorded by us and so we would like to ensure everyone that, in addition to Kim Junsu, not a scene from the event has been lost until its very end.

However, we would like to apologize once more for not having given a detailed explanation to everyone and you may confirm all of this with C-Jes.

We would like to thank Kim Junsu, who came on behalf and for the interest of the disabled, and C-Jes Entertainment and we, as the ultimate organizers responsible for the event, would like to apologize to everyone for giving any discomfort.

From, Gyeonggi-do National Para Games Support Team.”
