-The official statement from CJES regarding Incheon Asian Games-
The 2014 Incheon Asian Games committee said “we appointed JYJ as the honorary ambassador, whose popularity is well recognized all around the Asia, to encourage the rest of the asia to know more about the 2014 Incheon Asian Games and to boost the promotional campaigns.”
When the C-jes Entertainment was discussing the roles of JYJ as the honorary ambassador, the officially formed service contract was accomplished with the campaign marketing agency from the 2014 Incheon Asian Games committee. The contract includes the following statements; “anything promotional campaigns related to the 2014 Incheon Asian Games should be agreed upon with JYJ in advance.” And “2014 Incheon Asian Games is obligated to consider JYJ as their top priority when casting other K-POP stars or singers for the opening and closing ceremony and any other conferences held by oversea media. Also, the 2014 Incheon Asian Games committee and its chairman along with the person who was in charge of the promotional campaign PROMISED JYJ THE STAGES FOR BOTH OPENING AND CLOSING CEREMONIES.
Followed up campaigns such as recording the title song of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, Only One, and making the music video with no charge; JYJ has been nothing but loyal to the 2014 Incheon Asian Games. Moreover, JYJ participated the showcase held in Hanoi, Vientnam and Guangzhou, China last October and November. The showcase in November where all the persons concerned for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games was supposed to gather was cancelled due to the natural disaster in Philippines.
A month ago, C-jes Entertainment notified the 2014 Incheon Asian Games committee that JYJ will join the Incheon Main Stadium opening event and the press conferences for both opening and closing ceremonies where the stage director would be there as well. However, no further information regarding every events could be received from the committee and the press conference happened today was one result from such matter. On the most recent call with the committee, they said that there is nothing confirmed for the stage schedule yet. However today the committee distributed to the press that they have “Stars Casted for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies” and did not mention JYJ, the official honorary ambassador. The committee also said that the appearance of JYJ is confirmed, but they are NOT discussing when the stage of JYJ will be made but WHETHER THEY WILL ALLOW JYJ’S STAGE TO GO ON.
The 2014 Incheon Asian Games committee PROMISED the opening and closing ceremonies. They even suggested collaborating a stage with PSY for the closing ceremony and JYJ told the commiittee that they would be honored to be on the same stage.
The 2014 Incheon Asian Games should keep the promise with JYJ. We believe that the 2014 Incheon Asian Games committee is organized to fulfill the public interest, which is based upon the loyalty and trust. For more than a year, the committee has made over four billion Asians believe that JYJ is the face of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, yet they did not bother to mention the name JYJ at the press conference. This goes against common sense. The stage with such a great singer who is loved the nation-wide.
If the committee tries to blame the person who was in charge of casting the honorary ambassador in the future or to make an excuse saying that JYJ was supposed to perform on the opening and closing event, not the main ceremony would be very disgraceful of the committee. It does not need lots of reasons to see how ridiculous it is that JYJ, who has been working really hard for the campaign and even recorded the theme song, was only going to perform on the even before the big main ceremony.
As you already know, JYJ was unfairly informed that they were no longer needed for the event for the Je-Ju New 7 Wonders of Nature’s honorary ambassodor in 2011. (It was unfair because JYJ was given such information just one day before the event and obviously they have reserved their flights and was even given a cue sheet.)
We remember the day we had a first meeting with the committee last May. We emphasized that JYJ has gone through enough painful obstruction and that it fears them it might happen again. We told them JYJ would not even consider starting something unless it is fully agreed upon and everything is obligated since the pain will be unbearable, not only for the members of JYJ but all the fans around the world who love them. The committee said that it is beyond deplorable that such obstruction is and has been occurring to JYJ. They were also very confident that they will not let such problem occur to JYJ.
We hope this breach of contract is not made by another preposterous and unfair threat and sincerely ask for everyone’s attention and support for JYJ.

this statement breaks me all over again.. how much more to JYJ.. >.<
my tears won’t stop falling T_T
If I’m this upset, I can’t imagine how Jae, Chun, Junsu feel right now
Hhh…. my heart ache…. T.T
This breaks my heart. Hopefully justice will be served. It is common in any sport events the main theme song performs in either opening or closing ceremony. My dear JYJ. Fighting!!
once i read about Exo, i just knew it something bad will happen. our boys have suffered enough. not this time, please. they made them as ambassadors, yet they didn’t mention or invited them for opening and closing ceremony. that is so ridiculous!!!!
God. Are the korean media in general really blinded from this? again, just like each times, i cant believe the public allows such unfairness to happen. this sort of things are really one of the reason why i dont like watching k-dramas/k-pop anymore. why are they doing this!
too bad too sad, hard to believe at first this kind of thing keeps happening to our JYJ and in this country again and again 😦
JYJ fighting !!
I and a few fans had posted comments on IAG Facebook. Hope all fans can go and challenge IAG on twitter, Facebook and other social media? Also, CJES should file a claim against IAG if thy breach their agreement for damage
This is the Incheon Games Facebook Page link for anyone who wants to leave a comment or strong thought…you know let them know this is way uncool!! https://www.facebook.com/IncheonAG2014.en/timeline
It’s BS that they would use JYJ to gain public attention worldwide and then keep them from performing when they already have a contract saying JYJ will and can perform. They know the publicity the games have been receiving until now would be all thanks to JYJ. If JYJ was not part of the games and someone else was the publicity must likely would not have gained so much attention from so many worldwide instead of just in Asia. I haven’t even heard of Incheon games until I heard JYJ were the ambassadors for it! I know a lot of fans and myself am outraged by the unfairness and lies JYJ keeps facing and getting from so called professionals. They want JYJ’s popularity and fame but are to chickened to face SM as well. Such BS! When will South Korea gain a f’ing backbone against SM? really!?! If SM pulls their talents from events with JYJ then let them! It’s not like JYJ would lose interms of ratings and views or sales! JYJ and their fans have proved how successful they are without the ability to promote publicly on tv and they will continue to be successful. They are the KING! I hope the committee realizes they are wrong for treating JYJ this way and will keep their word. Come on! Keep your words and don’t be hypocrits!!
My heart is breaking for them. This is so unfair!
Why?why? TT.TT I very disappointed read this news. OMG i can’t believe it……
its really unfair to our JYJ and their fans. if the incident (in 2011 “jeju”) happen again it will be really really pain to jyj’s fans all around the world. please make some justice to our boys……
well at lest they dragged the Asian Games committee ( and Je-Ju New7Wonders) ass in the media .
now I bet all the little fans of SM are trying to flood the comments with ” JYJ aren’t popular as my idols ” like they did in the Je-Ju incident …because an official organization pulling this crap on a national event to someone they officially announced as ambassador for that even instead of your idols is totally nothing important .
and theses AGC A-holes…why not ask the people you’re putting on stage instead of JYJ to be the ambassadors for this from the beginning since you seem to think they’re more relevant than JYJ ? …or do they not have time for you except when they’re going to be in the main event ?
and how can those acts shame themselves for going onstage knowing what is happening with their own companies? what glory is there in standing in the spot someone else was promised? what happened to integrity and decency?
I’m sorry, are we talking reality here? (sarcasm maxed).
There seems to be no shame in SK’s music industry or the sports industry either…. This is not the way to win support for your endeavor if you cheat people when they are trying to help you. This is the WRONG kind of publicity for your event Mr. Committee of IAG.
If I had the money I would visit South Korea just to tell all these people off IN PERSON. Would make my day. Course if I had lots of money I’d buy JYJ a TV station so they could tell everyone FU! kk, enough blowing off steam…..
again???why…oh please why???!!!!
DAMN YOU IAG!!!!! I ask for this stupid committees to burn in HELL!!!! How dare you cheat and hurt our JAECHUNSU?????!!!!! Using them for one year plus to do promotions…and now ignoring them? You will never get away! Justice will prevail in GOD’s way! JYJ FIGHTING!!!!
This is so unfair. 😦
Should we start a tweeting campaign…
“Fair games need fair treatment of JYJ.
We int’l fans request JYJ fairly on the main stage of the ceremonies on TV.”
To https://twitter.com/incheonAG2014 and
I am not surprised anymore that stuff like this happens to JYJ. However, it is and will always be a bunch of BS!!!!!!!! Even though I still feel angry and sad for them each time. I think about all the success and accomplishments JYJ have still had despite all of this unjust BS!!!!!! And I thank GOD that they have that. I do hope this is worked out and JYJ do not have to deal with this BS in the end!!!!!!
Won’t the AG comittee get embarrased if they can’t keep their agreement? This AG is international scale sports event. Maybe we should protest in their social media
“”We hope this breach of a contract is not made by another preposterous and unfair threat and sincerely ask for everyone’s attention and support for JYJ.””
so what is your next step cjes? don’t stop there. sue aig commettee for the breach of contract agreement. let the whole world knows about their dirty tricks!!
actually with this statement is enough, people will know the real matters. JYJ is never in the wrong while the other party is an unprofessional liar. what are JYJ gonna do next? i hope JYJ not affraid! but i also hope JYJ consider what their priority is. there are still so much more activities for JYJ, solos or groups. seriously, IAG is screwing themselves, why even bother with them anymore.
done unfollowing all their twitter and FB accounts, but i do still tweeting to their account just to annoy them! LOL
cjes legal should file a claim against IAG for breach of contract. IAG should not get away withn o consequence.
So unfair! What can we do?
I already started with this hastag #AIGisunfairtoJYJ
LETS START TWEETING XD
Isn’t it #IAGisunfairtoJYJ ?
I’m sure Cjes and JYJ has really think this trhough to make sure things like this didn’t happened before they agree to be the ambassador. IAG are trash, I swear.
this is high treason! nothing less..
This is awefull!! Our boys work so hard, clean their agenda, do their best and what do they get? Being scolded out of an event which used to stand up over their names! It’s unfair, should be illegal, they have a contract!
Breaks my heart to think how disapointed they are. I know what you mean when you think about the hashtags and petition, this feeling of impotence is the worst!
Wish I could be closer, and take care of them! Since I’m not, I’ll do my best to support them. Hope they are fine!
I too feel sad about this, I got on twitter and facebook, but either the news hasn’t hit or something, no one seems to be reacting the way we should as fans. Sadly, I think we should have expected it the moment all those other artists got involved, especially anyone affiliated with SM, they seem to be a catalyst for the mistreatment of JYJ. My question is, how could the Incheon Asian Games Committee allow this to happen knowing that it had happened before with the Jeju Incident.
I get discouraged thinking about these organizations, and how much JYJ still has to face. What kind of government is South Korea? Isn’t it enough already that JYJ hasn’t been on television for years, they have to try to take away such a thing. After they’ve used them on promotion because as someone said before, the only reason I learned about these games was because of JYJ. They’d have passed me by without another thought. I wish this would change soon, and I hope the Incheon Asian Games Committee gets what is coming to them. Those @#$%!!
Go JYJ, I guess we should concentrate on making their new Album and their Concert a resounding success, enough to trample those people the Committee is choosing instead of our JYJ.
lets have faith in c-jes to handle this positively and swiftly. they have JYJ’s back and they will do whatever they can to stand up for them. just what will it take for SM to eat some of its own s***! and humble pie? do they own the president too? where is the end of their wicked reign?
isn’t this the director for the musical december? i didn’t expect him to betray Junsu/JYJ 😦
wow…I’m so mad rn…why can’t all these people involved (sm, sk media haters, IAG and anti fan of JYJ) be put in a big boat and sink instead of those innocent students!!!
I knew it the moment I heard EXO was going to be there.
I’m beyond pissed.
why they are always experiencing biased from other people..when they are only doing their job and they are very dedicated to their field..i hope and pray that this will end by giving them the right and justice will prevail
The pain is indeed unbearable.
I’m not surprised, I’m hurt but not surprised.
No matter how many times this happens I still feel sad and angry. It just never ends. Thankfully there are a lot of people who support JYJ and their struggle. They need to be heard.
I hope they decide not attend, just to be treated like that
Okay this still early in the morning plus I’m just start my fasting but can’t help to said bad word Shittt and fuck you SM. Gosh why should our boys face this kind of thing again. Pleassssss do some thing CJes,,, me and sure all fans in world will help no matter what we always stand for our boys.
I hope CJES will take legal action against this so call government organization and get JYJ the justice that they need.
Let us pray hard and work hard for the boys. Let us all pray good things to come to JYJ despite this fiasco. This will come to pass and more great things will come to them. I believe that!!
I can’t help but feel flabbergasted at how unprofessional and unfair IAG is being towards JYJ. Considering that JYJ sang the theme song, performed in the road shows, and are the ambassadors, isn’t it obvious and fair that they should be able to perform in the opening and closing ceremonies?
Putting all my biased fangirl comments aside, I can’t help but feel embarrassed for IAG because they promised JYJ stages for the opening and closing ceremonies, and then, they just simply go back on their words.(?) Really, that’s just childish and insensitive, considering that CJES only wanted the best for the boys since they’ve already been through enough cockblockery…
hey, everyone! i would like to invite everyone to do something simple for JYJ. i would like to invite everyone to do a prayer circle for our boys. everyday, at 8PM for the next 40 days, let us give at least 5 minutes of our time to pray good things for JYJ. please refrain from praying bad things to other people as we don’t want bad karma going back to our boys or to us. just pray good, positive things towards JYJ, like for this issue to be resolved or much better things to come their way. this might be superstitious but i don’t think it would hurt anyone if we pray for them. let us all send a big wave of positive and loving vibes to JYJ!
I like your idea 🙂 I will pray for them in any event. I just can’t believe this is happening again!
thanks! 🙂 i did this before on some guidance i was asking. prayed constantly and seriously for 40 days and after that the answer came in an unexpected way. i just thought, if there were many of us praying for them, something good will eventually come of this. hope you do it to. i just started today. 🙂
so unfair it’s painfull
I wonder WHY JYJ CAN NOT BE RESPECTED
I feel sad,very sad.Hope JYJ can be treated in fair
I think what will really work is that we spread the words of such injustice and unfairness that is happening to JYJ in Korea (like JeJu and IAG incidents). We need to make this known everywhere and let other country knows that this is how Korean government treats its artist just because they are afraid of a company. If we can make this big, then maybe some changes might be in order as more and more people realized this injustice to our JYJ.
now it really sucks!!! strongly hope this matter won’t just be disappeared, isn’t it enough is enough??? given the earlier discussion about JYJ circumstances with the committee, I’m totally shocked it’s still happened…sorry but it’s unbearable cheat
post your link here for a petition and I will support JYJ no matter what!
#AIGisunfairtoJYJ Feel disappointing towards the organization !!! How dare u treat JYJ like this?! ==
I am appalled and incredibly dissapointed by the committee, for bending to the whim of SM entertainment. You see folks, this is what happens when greed is the driving force.. Absolutely disgusting.
I cannot fathom, as to what JYJ must be feeling right now after all of the obstructions, and when it seems like they are at the finishing line, SM comes out of nowhere and cock blocks them.. This is outrageous.
let’s give IAG the lowest rating! Go to their facebook pages & review and give them 1 star only so world can see how angry we are because JYJ are treated badly. here’s IAG FB page: https://www.facebook.com/IncheonAG2014.en?sk=reviews
Honorary ambassadors dropped after corporate donation
The honorary ambassadors of the Games, Korean group JYJ, were suddenly dropped from the opening and closing ceremony’s set-list after a suspicious donation to the IAGOC from JYJ’s previous management company, SM Entertainment. This comes after JYJ performed extensive promotional activities for the Games, such as travelling to Guangzhou, China and Hanoi, Vietnam to put on promotional showcases, singing the Games official theme song, as well as being the face of games since February 2013. Despite the IAGOC year-long promise that JYJ would be final performance during the opening and closing ceremonies, JYJ were unilaterally dropped from the opening and closing ceremonies on July 1, 2014 through the organization’s press releases. Instead, SM Entertainment group, EXO, will perform on stage during opening and closing ceremonies. The despicable actions of the IAGOC have drawn worldwide criticism from spectators to journalists, tarnishing the reputation of the Games.
this is soooooo unfair.. what more does our boys have to go through this BS???? is there anything that we can do? i already ‘visit’ IAG fb and twitter.. now I’m just praying that JYJ keep on going strong and show SM that whatever they do JYJ will never stop..
YEAH For JYJ3…I WILL PRAY FOR THEM TOO>
THIS IS SO UNFAIR….I will support JYJ3….
To JYJ3 Be strong Forever…WERE HERE FOREVER!
I’m going to say this EVERYWHERE I post online. Yes, a petition will give people something to do. A #hashtag will get the word out. Since money seems to be at the heart of this scenario, and yes I’m going to use CAPS!….Here is what I propose.
LET EVERY PERSON IN THE JYJ FANDOM…SOUTH KOREA, JAPAN, CHINA, AND EVERYWHERE INTERNATIONALLY MAKE JYJ’S UPCOMING ALBUM THE BIGGEST SELLING ALBUM IN THE HISTORY OF SOUTH KOREA! AS THE SAYING GOES…MONEY TALKS AND BS WALKS!
Let’s let them know, two can play this game. Let’s give Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu the kind of RESPECT they deserve. Let the fans of the JYJ Family MAKE THE MIRACLE! There is no other bitch-slap in the world (excuse my language) that will have more meaning than to show how this fandom supports the members of JYJ. That we will not take this lying down ANYMORE! The time to stop moaning and groaning is over. A call to action in the only way that really matters, putting JYJ at the top of the album charts and keeping them there for as long as possible. Let this fandom show the resolve that we respect, support, love, JYJ, and we admire their courage in the face of adversity. If others in the entertainment/sports industry don’t have the balls to stand up for what is right, so be it. But the fans of JYJ will always let them know, WE HAVE THEIR BACKS! Those who will do them harm have to come through us to get to them!
well said sista!
This totally sucks that they are doing this to JYJ, I am venting my disappointment wherever I see the IAG (twitter, facebook, etc).
Anyone want to email the IAG too, I want to flood their inbox with my disappointment: firstname.lastname@example.org
To the organizing committee,
I am quite sadden with the turn of event you have taken with your ambassador for the 2014 Incheon games. Your decision has proven to us international audience your poor management. Even more so that you are not honorable to your words and decision at the beginning stages of promoting the games. You choose JYJ and they agreed to help you promote the games, now you disregard their importance and all they have done for you. Clearly, you are showing the international audience how unreliable your promises are. I doubted your intentions at the beginning because I feared you would only be reenacting the Jeju incident all over again, that you would hurt JYJ and their fans. Still, I gave you the benefit of the doubt and hoped that you would be different, people of higher integrity and decency. I looked forward to the games and followed JYJ as they promoted it. Today, you have proved that I did not doubt wrongly. You are no different to those of the Jeju incident, you have no integrity and morals and worse of all you are not honorable to your words. I am truly disappointed in you. Words cannot explain the frustration and contempt I have for the you for doing this to JYJ and their fans.
It’s really unfair
use JYJ as an ambassador then dump them?
what kind of people who can do that?
