The famous Hallyu singing group JYJ, which had been actively supporting Jeju’s New7Wonders of Nature campaign, was suddenly notified that their appearance on a televised KBS concert for Jeju’s New7Wonders of Nature bid was cancelled. This unexpected announcement by KBS outraged JYJ’s fans, sparking widespread condemnation and protests online.

Now, Jeju Special Self-Governing Province has offered up an apology.

“The provincial government is sorry about the cancellation of JYJ’s appearance in the KBS concert ‘Go, N7W! Here is Jeju’ at Seongsan Sunrise Peak on July 20,” it said in a statement on July 19, adding, “When we hold a big event in future, we will positively support JYJ’s appearance, an honorary ambassador which has been playing a major role in the [N7W] campaign.”

The statement indicated that the province had no hand in the KBS decision.

The government statement mentioned local appreciation for JYJ’s public relations contributions to Jeju Island, including singing the N7W campaign song at many domestic and international concert venues.
