2PM Ended The Japan Concert Tour On Last Friday

15 May


K-pop idols 2PM will wrap up their first concert tour in Japan on last friday, according to their agency JYP Entertainment.

“2PM will hold their final show at the Zepp Tokyo in Japan today,” a PR official from JYP told 10Asia over the phone on Friday.

The six-member boy band flew into Japan on May 4 and has visited several cities in the country including Sapporo on May 6, Fukuoka on May 8, Osaka on May 9 and Nagoya on May 10 for their tour titled “2PM 1st JAPAN TOUR 2011 ‘Take off.'”

“We were originally scheduled to hold five shows in the country but held an extra performance in Tokyo yesterday at the Makuhari Messe event hall since tickets for the show tonight became sold out,” the official explained.

During the tour, the group sang a slew of their hit songs such as “Don’t Stop Can’t Stop,” “Without U,” “Heartbeat” and promoted their upcoming Japanese debut single “Take Off” which is set to go on sale in the country on May 18.

Composed of members Nichkhun, Wooyoung, Junho, Chansung, Junsu and Taecyeon, 2PM has been one of the most popular boy bands in Korea since their debut in 2008, holding numerous hits under their belt including “10 out of 10,” “Again & Again,” “Only You” and “Without You.”

The boys branched out to the music market in Japan with the release of their DVD “Hottest ∼ 2PM 1st MUSIC VIDEO COLLECTION & The History ∼” in Japan last November followed by a large showcase event a month after in Tokyo’s Ryokoku Kokugikan which attracted over 25,000 local fans.

They also made an appearance on Japan’s Mezamashi TV in February, performed at the fashion show for Tokyo Girls Collection (TGC) in March and recently topped Japan’s USEN weekly music chart and lyrics search website uta-net.com’s with “Take Off.”

Big Bang Postpones Tokyo and Yokohama concert due to Aftershocks

20 Apr


With Big Bang’s Japanese promotions set to begin in early May, many fans have expressed their concerns over the group’s safety in Japan because major aftershocks have been disrupting all over the country lately. However, much to their relief, YG Entertainment has confirmed local media today that Big Bang’s Japanese promotions will be shortened to two weeks, as opposed to the original two month plan, and the Tokyo and Yokohama concerts will be postponed indefinitely.

“All Big Bang members really want to do the concerts in Japan as originally planned to show their support and love for everyone hurt by the recent disaster. But there still are major aftershocks happening in Japan, and many fans from other countries have voiced their concerns over Big Bang’s security. We thought it was a major concern too so we decided to postpone the Tokyo and Yokohama concerts, which haven’t sold any tickets yet,” an official from YGE told Star News Money Today.

However, the concerts in Osaka, Chiba, and Nagoya will be held as planned since all tickets have been sold out already and the members have visited the concert halls in each city twice to check out the security there, according to the official. This means Big Bang will hold a total of eight concerts over two weeks in Japan: Osaka from May 10th to 11th, Chiba from May 13th to 15th, and Nagoya from the 17th to 19th. Big Bang released their special edition album on Apr. 8th and will promote the album until May 1st in Korea. Their second full Japanese album will be released on May 11th.

DNBN’s Official Announcement Rebutting Rumors Regarding Dream Catcher Indonesia and Concert Cancellation

30 Mar

The below is the translation of the official announcement that DNBN made regarding the situation in Indonesia. JYJ3 echoes DNBN in expressing our sincere sadness at the pains that the Indonesian fans have suffered due to the actions of its concert promoter.

Rebuttal on the False Rumors and Arguments Regarding the Cancellation of JYJ’s Indonesia Concert

Hello. This is DNBN.

Rumors with low credibility regarding JYJ’s World Tour Indonesia Concert’s cancellation.

We have come to draft this rebuttal in order to give you credible information after confirming the truths and reliability of the (below) materials regarding the cancellation of the concert.

Yesterday C-JeS announced that JYJ’s concert in Indonesia was officially cancelled. Fans of Indonesia, we cannot imagine how distraught you are. We express our sincerest condolences.

Unfortunately, right now, false rumors that blame a particular member for the cancellation is spreading in the international fandom. Because this rumor is being spread unilaterally by one side, we want to provide the other side so that you have more complete information.

This writing is not to argue that the cancellation is the fault of one side or to criticize the other.

Only, we wish that through this writing there will be no one who will believe that the rumors that are currently spreading are the truths.

—————————————————–

Dream Catcher Indonesia (hereafter DCI) is the “official promoter” of JYJ Concert in Indonesia. DCI has never successfully hosted an event (previously it had worked with CN Blue and FT Island but ended up cancelling). The owner of DCI is a person named A.W. Ardiati. In press releases and other materials, it is shown that a person named Tita Ardiati is DCI’s President (see http://bit.ly/ici7xq). Tita Ardiati is also an administrator of the Indonesian TVXQ (not JYJ—they are “OT5”, i.e., supports only TVXQ5) Fanclub “Cassination.” In Indonesia, an “official fan club” is typically chosen to facilitate ticket sales. Unsurprisingly, Cassination was selected as the “official fan club.” However, DCI has long shown signs of instability—for instance, its CEO resigned last Friday.

Many of DCI’s actions regarding the concert preparation cannot be excused.

(1) DCI FAILED TO ADEQUATELY PRMOTE JYJ IN INDONESIA.

(a) It did absolutely zero promotion via TV or billboards, which are the traditional methods of promotion for concerts in Indonesia in which a substantial portion of the population does not have access to the internet.

(b) Even print promotions through the newspapers and magazines were extremely sparse (Short informational feature in the magazine IndoWorld and newspaper Pandeira were largely the entirety of this).

(c) In fact, even as late as March 22nd, DCI admits on its Twitter that it has not started its promotional activities. (See http://wp.me/p1gQsC-2ly)

(2) DCI HAS LIED MULTIPLE TIMES TO MULTIPLE PARTIES ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS IN ITS HANDLING OF THE CONCERT.

(a) THE CONCERT TICKETS.

– DCI sold the concert tickets in three different ways up to the day before the cancellation without having first obtained the consent and authorization from C-JeS. (See http://wp.me/p1gQsC-2kq)

– DCI has misrepresented to the press and the public about the tickets selling out when they have not, multiple times, causing serious confusion to and hindering fans and potential buyers. In fact, there was much anxiety in the Indonesian fandom about just how well the tickets were selling because there was no accurate information.

(b) THE CAUSE OF THE CONCERT’S CANCELLATION

a. JAEJOONG: TITA ARDIATI, THE PRESIDENT OF DCI AND THE ADMIN OF CASSINATION, AND MANY OF HER CLOSE ASSOCIATES PUBLICLY SLANDERED JYJ MEMBER JAEJOONG WITH FALSE ALLEGATIONS. (For some examples out of many, see Tita Ardiati’s twitter at http://wp.me/p1gQsC-2ly)

– Any allegations that Jaejoong personally has anything to do with Indonesia’s cancellation are obvious lies. In fact, Jaejoong has never even set foot in Indonesia.

– The nature of the allegations was extremely defamatory towards Jaejoong and calculated to inflame the public opinion of Indonesian fans against Jaejoong.

– Nonetheless, because these false allegations were made by such powerful figures in the Indonesian JYJ fandom, they are spreading like wildfire and are seriously hurting Jaejoong’s reputation in Indonesia and causing much anguish to his fans.

b. PRESS RELEASE: DCI AND ITS PRESIDENT TITA ARDIATI RELEASED AN OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE THAT STATED THAT THE CONCERT WAS CANCELLED BECAUSE C-JES MADE ADDITIONAL HIGH-COST REQUESTS (see Press Release at http://www.dreamcatcher-indo.biz).

– Tita Ardiati and her associates lost all credibility when they slandered and spread harmful rumors that hurt Jaejoong, who has nothing to do with the cancellation. All of their statements, therefore, warrant close scrutiny and suspicion as to their truth.

– The press release is misleading and false in other ways. For instance, it states that DCI “worked hard to fulfill all that is needed for this concert” when, by their own admission, there were seriously inadequate promotions and many lies to the press and the fans about ticket sales.

– The press release is also contrary to the announcement made by C-JeS which said that DCI’s repeated failure to abide by contract terms and its inability to smoothly carry out the concert are what led to the cancellation.

(3) DCI’S DESIGNATED OFFICIAL FANCLUB CASSINATION WAS AN INAPPRORPIATE CHOICE FOR A JYJ-CONCERT. IT IS “OT5,” I.E., SUPPORTS ONLY TVXQ5, AND HAS SOLICITED FOR AND PLANNED FOR “YUNJAE” EVENTS FOR THE JYJ CONCERT.

(a) Through their Tweeter and Forum, Cassination has repeatedly and explicitly condoned and encouraged fans to do activities that are disrespectful to a JYJ Concert, such as shouting names of people who are not part of JYJ. In fact, there is evidence that Cassination was making a Yunjae Banner to bring to the JYJ Concert and had plans to stage a high-profile Yunjae event. (See http://i56.tinypic.com/2h51x8y.png)

(b) This shows a serious disregard for the respect owed to Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu as people and artists.

——————————————————-

We believe that C-JeS gravely erred in not monitoring Indonesia closely earlier. It is our sincerest hope that C-JeS will pull its weight on organizing these tours which are momentous occasions for fans. Nonetheless, the above events cannot be excused. Again, we express our sorrow at the events that took place in Indonesia—we believe that DCI wronged not just JYJ but also their fans in Indonesia.

Once again, we wish to express how saddened we are for fans who endured great suffering due to DCI’s above actions.

Thank you.

C-JeS Cancel Indonesia Concert due to Problems with Promoter–- Promoter Fails to Answer Calls & Inactivates Cell Phone

29 Mar

Jakarta – JYJ’s decision to cancel their concert in Indonesia seemed to be resolute. This cancellation was because JYJ’s management disappointed with the promoter. So, rather than ruined their artist’s image, management choose to cancel the concert.

From the letter that was written by JYJ’s management, C-Jes Entertainment in c-jes.com, Monday (28/3/2011), they admitted that they had problem with the promoter, Dreamcatcher Indonesia. Promoter was said couldn’t fulfill their requests.

Actually, they had give warnings to the promoter in regard to the contract before. But still, there was no agreement to be attained between them. Finally, management choose to step back for their artist’s virtue and benefit.

The promoter who would carry out the concert in Sentul International Convention Center, Bogor at 2011, 9th April had yet to give another confirmation. And the matter concerning the ticket refunding had been not settled yet.

Below is the complete letter that had been written by C-Jes Entertainment:

Dear Fans who have been waiting for Worldwide Tour – Indonesia,

This is the official announcement of Worldwide Tour – Indonesia’s cancellation.

Last Saturday, 26th March, we informed Indonesian promoter about the cancellation officially.
We warned Indonesian promoter several times about their non-fulfillment of the contract.
However, they kept breaching the articles in contract so that JYJ has no choice but cancellation because we cannot find any smooth progress for the concert preparation.

We tried our best not to cancel the show for many fans waited for JYJ but there are too many factors which could possibly make JYJ’s impression bad.

JYJ feel so sorry that they cannot meet Indonesian fans this time.

We do know that there are rumors about Singapore concert.

We are on process of changing promoter there and negotiation in Singapore at the moment.

Please be patient for our official announcement for Singapore concert.

Indonesia is the only place that has been cancelled so far, and we will let you know about changing or adding places to go for.

Thank you for your understanding

Detikhot had tried to connect with Public Relation Dreamcather Indonesia, Triana for this confirmation, but there was no answer. Triana then inactivated her cell phone after detikhot gave electronic messages.

All JYJ fans who asked Dreamcatcher Indonesia by twitter had not been answered too.
