Domestic fans of idol band DAY6, also known as My Days, have banded together from various communities to launch a fandom boycott against JYP Entertainment, for the "Continued absence of communication with DAY6's fandom".
As a consequence of the boycott, Korean My Days have banned any domestic fans' purchase and viewing of DAY6's first ever reality show, 'DAYOFF in Jeju' which recently premiered via 'V Live+'.
Shortly after launching the boycott, #DAY6_Reality_boycott began trending on Twitter in Korea, as My Days continued to spread the word.
In a fandom statement directed toward JYP Entertainment's 'Studio J', DAY6 fans wrote, "After DAY6's debut, DAY6's label JYP Entertainment and head office 'Studio J' has fostered fans' discontentments with constant absence of any communication with fans, as well as with poor management of its artist. On this day, we cannot sit idly by as the label continues to mock fans and mistreat its artists, including with the launch of DAY6's first ever reality through a small-traffic, paid platform with absolutely no prior advertisement or teasers, and so we state as follows."
In summary, My Days' requests toward JYP Entertainment and Studio J through this boycott are:
1. Poor management of artists and schedules including too many solo concerts without rest, failure to notify fans of schedules, lack of music show promotions, album promotions, and events.
2. Lack of professional procedure and severe insults toward fans during fan sign events, including staff members' laughter and mockery after reading fan letters or overhearing conversations with artists; excessive security searches, especially in chest areas; poor management of lines which may result in dangers or injuries.
3. Zero feedback on any fan requests, despite fans' constant demands for change, improvements, etc.
Finally, the statement reads, "Until we receive official feedback, we will continue to boycott DAYOFF in Jeju' via 'V Live+'." What do you think of the ongoing boycott?
