A number of leading K-pop artists have announced they will be performing at the 2014 Asian Games, to be held in Incheon in September this year. So far, big-name artists such as BIGBANG, JYJ, PSY and EXO have been confirmed.
The event will mark the first time that JYJ has appeared on the same bill as an SM Entertainment-represented artist (in this case EXO) since the three members of the group split from TVXQ in 2009. A lengthy legal case ensued, with both parties wrangling over contractual terms. During this time, JYJ has avoided appearing at events where SM artists were not performing, and vice versa.
JYJ has been involved in Asian Games promotions since early last year, and the group is set to perform the official theme song, “Only One,” at the competition’s Opening Ceremony.
The Asian Games begin on September 19 and will conclude on October 4.
