The currently airing youth melodrama starring Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye was hit with production challenges when it registered single-digit ratings. It was further set back with Park’s accident in mid-July, delaying shoots and prompting the airing of special re-cut episode in place of the scheduled eighth.

“Heartstrings” production company JS Pictures has earlier denied changing the director. PD Pyo meanwhile is quoted to have stated that he may return to filming on the set, even if he is not yet sure when it will be.

KBS cancels JYJ’s broadcast appearance for ‘N7W’ event

Back in May, JYJ became honorary ambassadors for Jeju Island as part of the ‘New Seven Wonders‘ initiative. KBS was to air a TV special on it to help promote Jeju Island for candidacy, however, the trio recently received a notice of cancellation regarding their appearance on the show.

On July 16th, JYJ’s management agency, C-JeS Entertainment, posted on their homepage, “Although JYJ was looking forward to the special ‘N7W‘ broadcast on the 20th as Jeju Island’s ambassadors, we received a cancellation notice today… We hope that the fans be patient with us and understand this sudden cancellation; after we discover why they were pulled, we will quickly post another bulletin.”

A JYJ official also stated, “With the broadcast only four days away, we suddenly received a notice of cancellation. We already got the plane tickets and even received a cue sheet. Additionally, two of the members are currently filming a drama and had already made arrangements to open up their schedule for this show. When the members heard the news, they couldn’t hide their upset feelings.”

The same official later added, “Furthermore, fans enthusiastically participated in voting for Jeju Island because of JYJ’s planned appearance. International fans also showed their dedication by participating, and in fact, there are fans coming in from Japan to see JYJ perform on the 20th. Their [KBS's] sudden notification – without any reason – makes the situation unfortunate and disappointing… This program is not like any regular entertainment show either. We prepared this with our desire to share how great the nation is; however, because they gave us a unilateral notice without any particular reason, we are slowly losing our strength because we feel so apologetic to our fans.”

The current situation seems quite ironic, as JYJ were chosen to be ambassadors under the assumption that the trio would bring in more international votes for Jeju Island. There were even videos featuring JYJ to further promote the event.

News Updated:

Earlier today, JYJ received a notice of cancellation regarding their appearance on a KBS special covering the ‘New Seven Wonders’, for which they were appointed honorary ambassadors for back in May.Just four days away from the broadcast and with tickets for the event already bought, C-JeS Entertainment expressed their confusion and disappointment with the sudden cancellation notice through a post on their official homepage.

Recent developments have hinted at the possibility of backdoor pressure being the root cause, as a representative of JYJ’s public relations company revealed, “Our manager spoke with KBS officials and they had told him, ‘If we allow JYJ to appear on this program, the entire event will simply become impossible to hold.’”

Because of their lawsuit against SM Entertainment, JYJ has been facing difficulty appearing on MBC, SBS,and KBS for some time now. A similar case arose with Yoochun’s ‘Miss Ripley‘ coverage earlier this year, so the possibility of backdoor pressure isn't too much of an exaggeration.

Currently, a request for a reasonable explanation has been lodged to the event hosts and a response is being awaited. Stay tuned for more updates.
