-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.
