Following BEAST, CN Blue has been reported to be caught up in Japan due to their entrance being denied for visa problems, delaying their upcoming press conference.
CN Blue was originally supposed to enter Japan through the Haneda Airport on August 31 but was denied for the same reason BEAST was denied earlier this month. The group has an official press conference for their major debut on September 1 as well as music video filmings.
“We’re working as quickly as we can with our Japanese agency at the moment. We’ll be doing our best to make sure that there isn’t any conflicts with their Japanese schedule. They’ll be returning to Korea to fix their visa problems and head back to Japan again. We have prepared all of the necessary papers as requested by their Japanese agency, but the standards seem to have gotten a lot stricter. The airport thought that the press conference and music video filming were intended to make a profit and named that as a problem.” officials of their agency, FNC Music, said.
Visitors for tourism purposes are allowed to stay for 90 days without a visa, but for performing artists and other visitors that will be making profit, a different type of visa is required entirely. BEAST has experience for being rejected at the gate and having to return to Korea immediately for the same reason.
