Junsu of JYJ has spoken out about the remarks he received from announcer Park Sang Do during a promotional event that took place on April 23.
Posting on his personal Twitter, the singer said, “I’m not sure who the MC was… But I think, at least, you should have some manners. Putting side age, it was very rude to myself and the fans…”
In another tweet, he continued, “Everyone, I know something hurtful happened but let’s get over it~ More than anything, I had an opportunity to perform on a stage like that for the first time in a really long time. Also in my hometown, which made me very happy and proud. It was scheduled so suddenly but thank you so much for coming out, even if it was short! Good night everyone.”
On April 23, Junsu made an appearance at the opening ceremony of the Goyang International Flower Expo as the City of Goyang’s honorary ambassador. At the event, he congratulated the start of the event, saying, “I’ve grown up in the city of Goyang. I’m happy that I’ve been invited to such a meaningful event. My dad encouraged me to be here as well.”
At the ceremony, he performed “Loving You Keeps Me Alive” from his musical, “Dracula.”
The problem arose when the opening ceremony’s MC Park Sang Do from SBS made questionable remarks regarding the star.
“If you want to hear Junsu sing, you have to be good. If you are not good enough, I’ll send him away,” he said to the fans who have shown up to the event.
Kim Junsu’s tweet today about the host of “Goyang Flower Festival” was posted by Kim Junsu to make a statement about the host’s repeated incomprehensible remarks about his fans who have been waiting for Kim Junsu.
However, SNS is a personal space, so we kindly ask you to avoid heating up an unintended debate about the contents of this tweet.
In addition, Kim Junsu has not received any payments regarding his activities as honorary ambassador to this day, and today’s event also was a meaningful participation on Kim Junsu’s part to officially promote Ilsan Flower Festival.
Thus, we would like to ask you to refrain from hasty speculations or over-interpretations of today’s tweet.
However, anchor Park Sang-Do’s statements as a host of an official event clearly was problematic. We believe that there needs to be an apology regarding this matter.
# Hallyu star XIA Junsu will be attending the Flower Expo opening ceremony and his fans’ reactions are explosive ^^
