20th October, 5.31pm, SGT
First of all, we would like to start this mail with an apology to the change in US stops and all prior travel arrangements made to former locations.
We decided to replace two stops on the original schedule as:
1. It is too punishing on the members physically and mentally to do the back to back gigs and specifically for the US leg, we are taking into consideration possible jet lag.
2. The change was made in lieu of tremendous feedback received from Japanese fans who have asked if we could put one stop in Hawaii for them since Japan was not included in this tour.
3. We wanted to make sure that all JYJ fans will be able to get a ticket to the showcases and hence we told promoters that we need a minimum of a 5000 pax venue for each stop. Due to constraints at the former locations, this can only be accomplished with the new tour stops added. (with the exception of NYC which needed to be locked in as press activities for the stop has been confirmed).
We apologize once again for the inconveniences caused and ask for your understanding. It is the best solution we can come up with to meet expectations on every level.
OFFICIAL TICKETING INFORMATION WILL BE RELEASED EARLY NEXT WEEK
SungKyunKwan Scandal ratings continue to receive boosts.
On the 20th, viewership rating agency AGB Nielsen Media Research reported the tally of 19th evening broadcast time drama where ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ recorded a rise on audience rating to 14.3% nationwide. Compared to the 15th episode that was aired on the 18th, this episode audience rating received a rise of 1.2 points, which is more than 1% rise. While to compare to the 14th episode, this would be a whooping 3.4 points rise from 10.9% rating.
The main reason of this continuing increase on ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ seems due to the first launch of Lee Seon Jun (Park Yoochun) and Yeon Hee (Park Min Young) love line that is likely to give an even more interesting development to the story.In the recent ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ broadcast, Lee Seon Jun who had been away from the Sunkyunkwan for a while would finally reunite with Yeon Hee. In a drowning accident where Yeon Hee was saved by Lee Seon Jun, he was finally found out that she was a woman. Due to that, Lee Seon Jun asked Yeon Hee to leave the Sungkyunkwan University.In addition, this recent broadcast also revealed the first Seon Jun and Yeon Hee locking lips scene that caught the attention of audiences. At the drama online board, a lot of different opinions “This means a triangle love line is formed.” “Yeon Hee and Seon Jun finally had a kiss.” were expressed.
Meanwhile, the concurrent timeline broadcast drama SBS ‘Giant’ recorded 28.5% and MBC ‘Queen of Reversal’ got 8.9%.
Singapore Cassiopeia forum clarifies issues regarding JYJ Showcase!
From Singapore Cassiopeia Forum:
We hope this post can put all rumours to a rest.
Like what we had said earlier, our main concern is our boys. We check, think before we act. We want the truth! Not rumours and lies!
We're glad that finally we had a clearer and full picture of what happened.Fyi,Tinsel PR is local publicist appointed by CJES. It's like an agent in between Quest and CJES for the showcase arrangements.
Below are the clarification for various rumours / enquiries which we received from Cassiopeia:
1. Cancellation of the VIP photoshoot with JYJ & Camera issues
-> We understand the fustration of the VIP as this was such a last minute notification by PR to Quest. Also, for the camera issue, some of us were already out at the airport / expo when we saw the post about NO photo & video taking during the showcase.
It is really upset that why Tinsel PR had eventually informed Quest at so last minute on the changes since they already knew same had happened at Bangkok. If they had informed earlier to Quest, trust there wouldn't be so much unhappiness and misunderstanding from Cassie.
2. Tickets sale / Free tickets
-> Its truth that local and international fans had told us that they thought Singapore showcase tickets were sold out! We're not sure who had started this rumour, or what had eventually happened. We really got a shocked and surprised to hear those. We know some fans eventually gave up or switched to buy other countries tickets instead.But, by the time we knew it, it was too late for us to inform them that the ticket were still available then.Of course, we know the fustration of the cassie who had bought the tickets earlier and saw free tickets being distributed at the airport. However, after much consideration, we do admit that a full hall looks nicer. At least to the boys and JYJ management. Believe all of us wouldn't want our boys to be upset.
3. Press Conference
-> Yes, Quest had informed media that no mentioning of the 5 boys issue during the interview. Since it was clearly mentioned to the media prior press conference, why did the reporter still ask? At the very last minute,the PR ended up changed to only allow 6 questions to be asked by the emcee on behalf of the reporters. We agreed with Quest that Tinsel PR should not interfere in the midst of the interview and cancelled the interview on Quest & CJES behalf. This had caused the media to be unhappy! This had directly offended the media!
4. Emcee interview during showcase
-> Believe some of you are aware that the scripts in showcase, concert, variety show, etc are all pre-script. No worry about the boys feeling. They're aware of it.
-> No worry girls~ Our boys had nice dinner! The cup noodles which some saw were for security guards. The packet food that some other saw were for the dancers. Our boys and their management had nice bento from Swiss Hotel. They were well fed. No worry~ ^^
6.Junsu throwing/breaking chair
-> NO SUCH THING had happened! None of the staff saw it. We are not sure where did the rumour started from. But, there's no such thing!
7. Playing cards & clubbing issue
-> Yes, the boys did play card. But is with the staffs and dancers at the backstage. NOT with any girl/fan at the club. NO SUCH THING had happened! If they had left the hotel on their own, Quest or their management will know as they're with them all the times!
The boys were feeling so tired! Do you all think they would choose to club than rest?
8. JYJ being unhappy about Singapore trip
-> The boys did not say anything about being unhappy during this Singapore trip. They thank Quest for organizing this show. They are happy to be here! But, it is true that they're really tired!
They wanted and need to have a good rest!
Our thinkings: Its really short notice for this showcase. Only 2 weeks for preparation. Even we ourselves were having big headaches and busy with various red ocean projects. Thinking back, Quest should be experiencing even bigger stress than us to arrange for such a big event. Not mentioning the last minute changes requested by the PR which had caused the cassie to be misunderstand and angry. As compared to the other stops, we do agreed that Singapore stop is more organized and more successful.
We're also happy and proud to hear from overseas cassie that they're amazed by Singapore cassie & showcase. To them, Singapore showcase was a great success.
Yes, that is what we hope to show to our boys, JYJ management and overseas cassie. Isn't it?
Whatever we do is for the boys. What had been done can't be undone. We hope the above cleared you all worries and enquiries. We hope all these can be put to a rest soon.Since its all cleared now,we hope the complaints about Quest to be stop as they're not the main responsible party. Trust Quest will continue to follow-up on all these unhappiness issues created by the PR with JYJ Management for us.If you all wanted to know more, or you all still have any more enquiries, feedback, feel free to tell us.
Please remember...Whatever we do is for our boys. We want our boys to be happy. To feel that Singapore cassie is well behaved and nice. Only in this way, they will be back to Singapore again.
Please help to let more singapore cassie know the truth and not believe in the rumours.
