KBS often does an Arabic interview with popular Kpop groups in order to help the Arabs show their love and support for their favorite band. Arab JYJ fans have been requesting JYJ members in an Arabic interview since 2010. Last May (2011), KBS Arabic section finally announced a JYJ Arabic interview. BUT KBS clarrified that it won’t happen until JYJ are back from their world tour (based on the leader’s request JJ), meanwhile Arabs can prepare their audio files (messages), gifts and anything they want to send before the interview. The news brought tears in our eyes from the happiness. We couldnt believe that our dream is being fulfilled.
Arab fans prepared many projects like videos and magazines, bought gifts and some fans had already SENT their gifts. One day, KBS wrote on its wall asking JYJ Arab Fans to STOP sending gifts. I was surprised since JYJ were on their LAST concert in the world tour and that they will be back soon so WHY STOP sending gifts?? Anyway, we followed their request and just focused on projects. JYJ finished their world tour and returned back to Korea. ALL Arabs now were waiting for the DATE of the interview to be officially released.
In the beginning of June 2011, KBS released a statement DELAYING the interview for an undefined date. I don’t know how to explain this, but imagine how hard Arabs worked for 2 months and all of a sudden news like this are published. I can never explain the sorrow that struck our hearts at the time. Many Arabs wrote to KBS and asked why? (Although many of us had already guessed, SM) KBS replied via phone “SM has nothing to do with it, KBS Arabic is seperate from the rest of the channel” thats what a fan told us when she called KBS.
Your happiness and laughter brings smiles to our faces.
Always stay like this, our JYJ ^____^
