The official Twitter account of Incheon Development and Tourism Committee tweeted the decision by saying, "Our city has discussed with the related agency about JYJ's appearance on the event. Unfortunately JYJ couldn't join this time due to conflict of interest between entertainment management companies. We plan to have JYJ included in the future events hosted by the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Organizing Committee and its overseas promotions."
The announcement has been made by Song Young Gil, the mayor of the city of Incheon. He had tweeted before, "I also want JYJ to perform, but I heard from the Development and Tourism Committee that the lineup is decided by MBC, who are the producers. I will check with the Development and Tourism Committee and the Asian Games Organizing Committee's reports."
