On 9 March, radio PD Yun Sung Hyun, has created a special broadcast to play both TVXQ and JYJ songs on his own radio program ‘Radio Heaven’. He also mentioned that here have been many talks going on around with fans of TVXQ and JYJ. Thus, he decided to do a special radio broadcast for both groups.
Yun PD has approached JYJ’s manager in hope to invite JYJ to the show but has been rejected reason being, they are unsure if JYJ has the rights to appear in radio broadcasts just yet so they were unable to attend.
At this, JYJ affiliates said in a conversation with Newsen: “We are not sure just exactly at what point I time and with what individuals the talk about getting JYJ on the show were exchanged, but JYJ would not have on purpose avoided appearing on the show. There are many factors that determine whether an entertainer appears on a show or not, but just as other entertainers also have situations in which they are invited to appear but are unable to, it was likely a routine matter.
He also said: “JYJ is thirsty to appear on broadcast and if they have a good opportunity they want to appear on air whenever (they are asked to). However, they have a lot of foreign activities and there are other things like Junsu’s schedule being very packed due to the musical, and that is one possibility as to why they could not have appeared. It seems like there was a misunderstanding in the communications. If the program’s character and the schedule matches, we are ready (in the alternative, we desire to) to appear on such a program at any time that they ask.
T/N by JYJ3: As for Yun PD’s comment, please consider JYJ has the full rights to appear in any program as they wish, as confirmed repeatedly by the courts. It seems that Yun PD’s comments were at best a product of misunderstanding. Yun PD’s broadcast also made it clear that the PD knew very little about the current JYJ-SM crisis.
T/N1: I think JYJ is being careful in wich program they’ll appear, we don’t want another SISA’s case, where the interview was manipulated to make them look bad.
T/N (JYJ3): The above translator is likely accurate in her caution– JYJ, if guilty of anything at all (and that is disputed), is guilty of being careful and attempting to match their existing schedules with invitations. What a sin.
