JYJ to Perform at the Presidential Inauguration

Alongside Psy, JYJ will be performing at the 18th Presidential Inauguration on February 25.

According to the 18th Presidential Inauguration Preparation Committee on February 15, artists will perform songs that represent each decade since 1950s to present.

The 1950-1960s and 1970-1980s will be represented by a talented group of musical actors as well as Jang Yoon Jung and Sonya. A special flashmob is scheduled to take place.


JYJ will be taking over for the 1990s to 2000s, singing Seo Taiji and Kid’s classic, I Know as well as a remix of representative songs of the 90s and Oh Pilseung Korea.

Lastly, Psy will decorate the finale with his own songs, such as Champion and Gangnam Style.

On being given the opportunity for JYJ to perform, a C-Jes Entertainment staff member stated, “We’re very grateful to be able to participate in a national ceremony as artists, representing a decade. We promise to prepare thoroughly and provide a good performance.”

There is a high chance they will appear on all three major broadcasting companies for the first time since 2010.

The ceremony will begin at 9:20 AM (KST) on February 25.

Watch them hit a commercial break or try to edit out some, if not all their performance later. I have no expectations besides the usual. I just know I'm going to rip the fuck out the performance audio.

IKR? The lights will mysteriously go out the moment JYJ takes the stage. What a coincidence!

I won't celebrate until I actually see their non-boycotted performance on these stations.

i hope they like this president.

but i think they won't get cutoff. at least not all of their performances. it seems like they'll be singing more than one song.

It'll be interesting to see if they actually get broadcasted. Either way Junsu better get to show off some great vocals.

Hoping for the best but would not be surprised at all if they get cut or at least their performance shortened. I'm also laughing at how, basically, that would mean cutting out the 1990s to 2000s.

And that JYJ are all 'We don't always appear on broadcast but, when we do, it's at a freaking presidential inauguration'.

Hell yes! I am so nervous for this performance because i actually think they are NOT going to be cut off. I don't think any of the broadcast companies are going to risk having bad press involving the president in articles the day after the show.
They already won all their lawsuits so if they do get in TV in the 3 big broadcast channels this time, well i could be the end of the ban.

Ok i sound like i'm drunk on all the chocolate i ate yesterday XD I know we have been disappointed but i'm optimistic this time.

I cry.

I don't know what else to say really.

I just love them so much.

ia with OP, i don't have high hope.

Who needs music shows when your country's president wants you to perform????

This along with Yoochun going on a Chinese variety, LET THIS YEAR BE THEIR COMEBACK TO BROADCAST ACTIVITIES ;~;

omg, yes, this please ;____;
benihime99 16th-Feb-2013 08:39 am (UTC)
PSY is singing as well, maybe he'll protect them with his awesomeness^^ (that's our only hope lbr)

But it seems Presidents love them so maybe there's a chance...

At this point, I just don't want them to get replaced, tbh. They might not get broadcasted, but performing in a presidential inauguration is a huge opportunity, I would imagine.

No wonder Yoochun needs a private jet. He'll be going Korea-China-Korea in a span of three days.

I was all YAY until I saw the OP's note. Now I'm sad. T_T
prettyminstrel 16th-Feb-2013 04:44 pm (UTC)
so excited for it when i saw this earlier but then again :/
soft_daisy 20th-Feb-2013 03:59 am (UTC)
don't want to keep my hopes up in case I get disappointed like the last million times, but this could potentially get them off the ban
