KBS releases official statement regarding JYJ's broadcast appearances

KBS has released an official statement regarding their decision to bar�JYJ from appearing on their broadcasts. The statement was posted on KBS's online production crew message board as a response to the many requests asking for the reasons why JYJ was not allowed to make an appearance. KBS explained,

"JYJ's lawsuit has yet to come to an end and KBS is objectively observing this lawsuit... Speaking from a business perspective, however, allowing a celebrity who is in the midst of a legal dispute onto a broadcast can have a negative impact. Therefore, it is common to refrain their appearances while waiting for the results of their legal dispute. Though it appears that JYJ has submitted a request to nullify their exclusivity contract with their existing agency, they made their own judgment to temporarily participate in activities on a case-by-case basis. However, JYJ has signed with another agency and are currently continuing their album promotions under two contracts. Because of these issues, KBS has decided that currently, JYJ's broadcast appearances may bring about legal problems and is threat to the culture industry. Until JYJ comes to a settlement or agreement with their agency, we will refrain from their broadcasts as a whole. Casting and guest appearances will be made depending on the outcome."
The post has since been removed while JYJ's agency has countered with their own statement. Source: TV Daily via Nate
