Cable channel QTV has canceled the broadcasting of JYJ’s upcoming daily reality show for reasons that are yet unknown.
On March 1st, C-JES Entertainment posted a notice on their official homepage, which stated, “This is a notice regarding the cancellation of QTV’s broadcasting. We would like to inform fans that JYJ’s reality show detailing their daily lives has been canceled.”
“JYJ’s Real 24” was originally scheduled for broadcast in the beginning of February, but it met with various delays.CJES Entertainment eventually received notice that QTV would not be able to broadcast the show; further inquiries on how such a decision came about have been left unanswered.
C-JES continued, “We would like to apologize to the fans who anticipated the show with all of the reports and promotions that QTV put out. QTV will be giving C-JES the footage, and we will be working our hardest to make sure that the show airs as soon as possible.”
EDIT: QTV'S STATEMENT ON THE MATTER
Meanwhile, a representative of QTV clarified, “JYJ’s reality show was canceled because schedules did not fit. For a while, we’ve been trying to balance publication rights as well as timing, but we’ve had to rearrange the lineup for a program being produced for April/May.”
They continued, “We never even planned a broadcast date for the program. We were merely trying to buy publication rights for their program to broadcast, it was not a program we produced.”
Regarding netizens speculating external pressure to cancel the show, QTV responded, “That was already ruled in the court, we have absolutely nothing to do with such rumors.”

Bullshit, but whatever. QTV shouldn't have promised a tv show(or promoted it so openly) if they weren't going to go through with it. Anyway, JYJ/C-Jes should just open their own Youtube channel ala Epik High/Map the Soul or even 2NE1TV and release weekly mini episodes or something. It'd be the best way to still let the fans see the content for free like they would've been able to with the broadcast :\
