After the first JYJ Concert in Seoul organized by Maps International (27 and 28 of November) I would like to express my gratitude to the fans who came to watch the show despite the cold weather.
In this concert the 3 members of JYJ wanted to release new songs because this was their first show, greeting Korean fans into the most beautiful concert hall using the installation on the roof prepared to withstand rainy weather or wind as a brilliant stage production with excellent sound system, we hoped you fans would make unforgettable memories.
However, by completely unexpected temperatures on the morning of the 27th with snow and freezing weather, snow piled on the side of the membrane and melt off the roof and caused unforeseen circumstances. This changes in the weather caused an emergency meeting to find anyone who could fix this disaster, and because of safety considerations we arrived to the conclusion that the first gig should be canceled. JYJ didn’t want to disappoint Korean and overseas fans who wanted to see their first concert in Korea, and even if they couldn’t offer you a lot of what was promised, it was determined to dismantle the roof membrane over five days so the show could be held.
Windy days then made delays in the process of dismantling of the roof, set seating, rehearsal schedules, etc. It all was delayed more than expected turning into the situation of late entry to the show and the starting time also delayed.
We wanted to create lasting memories for the fans who could join JYJ concert, but since the state of road surfaces was slippery it was judged to be dangerous, so the organizers of the event felt sorry to see there was no point to show the secondary stage.
So around 10 pm the show had to finish because of the rules of the stadium, we also apologize for even finishing the inevitable encore performances.
But to not disappoint the fans who came from afar, the organizers were ready to do our best performances rather than held a cancellation, so please feel free to send questions and quarries to understand a little bit more and be able to do a fantastic concert next time. Promising to meet the expectations of the fans, I would like to offer apologies once again.
We are grateful to the fans who weren’t stopped to come and watch the show even under the unexpected cold weather. Once again thank you fans, let’s continue cheering for JYJ. Thank you.
