Actor Jang Geun Suk has revealed that the recent press conference has been delayed due to logistics, not because of the anti-hally movement.
A representative from Jang Geun Suk’s management, Tree-J Entertainment, told OSEN, “The Sumitomo Mitsui Card press conference has been postponed in order to make solid preparations.” And further stated, “This delay is not the result of the anit-hally movement.”
The official continued, “Jang Geun Suk has experienced similar changes in the past where scheduled events become delayed or even cancelled. This really isn’t a big deal.”
The reporters have jumped to conclusions thinking that the cancellation of the press conference on August 22 was due to the anti-hallyu movement because of the coincidence.
President Lee Myung Bak’s recent visit to Dokdo has strained the relationship between Korea and Japan. Even Hallyu stars like Bae Young Jun and Girls Generation aren’t being treated favorably from the Japanese media and it’s making Korean entertainment industry insiders nervous.
