Junsu of JYJ has spoken out about the remarks he received from announcer Park Sang Do during a promotional event that took place on April 23.
Posting on his personal Twitter, the singer said, “I’m not sure who the MC was… But I think, at least, you should have some manners. Putting side age, it was very rude to myself and the fans…”
In another tweet, he continued, “Everyone, I know something hurtful happened but let’s get over it~ More than anything, I had an opportunity to perform on a stage like that for the first time in a really long time. Also in my hometown, which made me very happy and proud. It was scheduled so suddenly but thank you so much for coming out, even if it was short! Good night everyone.”
On April 23, Junsu made an appearance at the opening ceremony of the Goyang International Flower Expo as the City of Goyang’s honorary ambassador. At the event, he congratulated the start of the event, saying, “I’ve grown up in the city of Goyang. I’m happy that I’ve been invited to such a meaningful event. My dad encouraged me to be here as well.”
At the ceremony, he performed “Loving You Keeps Me Alive” from his musical, “Dracula.”
The problem arose when the opening ceremony’s MC Park Sang Do from SBS made questionable remarks regarding the star.
“If you want to hear Junsu sing, you have to be good. If you are not good enough, I’ll send him away,” he said to the fans who have shown up to the event.
After Junsu finished his song and left the stage, the announcer commented, “Should we call him back again? If you can’t come back and sing more, at least say goodbye.” Confirming that Junsu has left the venue, he continued, “He really left? But we have more time? Even though three members of parliament waited, not even doing their speeches? The hallyu wave sure is scary.”
He was also reported to have said, “If the budget increases next year, maybe he will sing three songs.”
Announcer Park Sang Do, who belongs to SBS, debuted in 1993 with the broadcast channel. He is currently a host on SBS’ morning talk show “Morning Wide.”
