Regarding the restriction placed on JYJ from appearing on KBS 2TV’s ‘Music Bank’, KBS released an official statement on the 19th that read, “When JYJ release a new album, they will be able to appear on Music Bank.” They also said, “The decision to allow JYJ to appear on the show will be made solely by the staff of ‘Music Bank’.”
The KBS publicity team stated that JYJ have not been appearing on ‘Music Bank’ “Because they haven’t released any new songs recently.”
According to the KBS publicity team, the staff can only request the appearance of singers when they release a new song, excluding drama O.S.T.s, but since JYJ have not released a new album since mid-February, they have been unable to appear on ‘Music Bank’.
The team continued to explain that the ‘cut off’ date was set in mid-February for JYJ’s appearances in variety programs such as ‘Music Bank’ as JYJ were locked in a legal dispute with SM Entertainment till this date.
On the 17th of February, the Courts rejected both SM’s formal objection to the partial acceptance of JYJ’s exclusive contract suspension injunction, as well as their own exclusive contract suspension injunction against the contract signed between C-JeS Entertainment and JYJ. The KBS publicity team stated that KBS had done what is usually done and refrained from allowing JYJ to appear on variety programs before this date as these televised appearances may have had an impact on the outcome of the Courts’ verdict.
It was also stated that the ‘Variety Program Sector’s Stance On The Restriction On JYJ’s Appearances In ‘Music Bank’, which was posted in the Viewers’ Thread on the 17th, was deleted on the 18th as, “There was a business error.”
The KBS publicity team stated, “The post in question was a response the variety program sector wrote last February to a question submitted to the Viewers’ Thread but due to a business error (by the Viewers’ Thread staff), the statement was posted much later than it was intended to be, which is why it has been deleted.”
