Wheesung and Moon Myung Jin Cancel U.S. Concert Due to Last Minute Visa Problems
Wheesung and Moon Myung Jin found out they won′t be able to perform in their U.S. tour at the last minute.
They thus had to cancel their concerts just two days before they were to start.
The two singers originally planned to leave Korea for the U.S. on the morning of July 10, but weren′t able to when they found out their visas hadn′t been issued.
YMC Entertainment put up a notice this day, saying, "The staff and singers planned to leave for New Jersey today, but couldn′t due to problems with their visas."
It continued, "We emphasized ever since we signed the contract that we need a specific performer′s visa. We waited until today, but we never got it. We launched a strong complaint against the production company. Singers cannot perform without a performer′s visa in other countries, and it is illegal to hold a concert without one. We are very sad to make this announcement, but we have no other choice."
"We′re sorry to the many fans who′ve waited for the concert. We hope you understand, however, that we made this decision because we can′t hold illegal concerts. We′re looking at different options but we don′t think we′ll be able to follow the original schedule due to time and place constraints."
The statement then told fans to cancel any airline tickets they purchased for the concert. It also added it will continue to talk with the production company about compensation.
The concerts were originally to be held in New Jersey, Chicago and L.A. from July 12-19.
