JYJ’s representative revealed his position on the cancellation of JYJ’s reality program.
In a phone interview with NewsEn, JYJ’s rep stated, “We received the notification of their refusal to air the program yesterday, and the reason is what the reason that everyone knows about. This has happened to us too many times and we do not blame QTV.”
Furthermore, the representative requested, “We really put a lot of effort into filming to show the members visiting Junsu’s musical and happily spending their days. We filmed for almost two months and we’re really disappointed, but I hope fans will understand the situation.”
He also stated, “The most important thing is showing fans, who’ve waited for the program, what we’ve filmed. Whether it be through on-line or another network, we are looking for ways to show fans what we have filmed.”
Meanwhile, JYJ’s agency CJES Entertainment posted in its official website on March 1st that “Real TV, which was intended to show JYJ’s real life to bridge the gap between JYJ and the fans had been canceled.”
CJES stated, “JYJ’s Real TV was scheduled to air in February, but today we got a notice from QTV that they cannot air it. We apologize to fans that were looking forward to JYJ’s Real TV after QTV distributed press release and PR materials.”
The program was planned to consist of a total of 8 episodes, and had gathered a lot of interest from fans because it was a reality program that was supposed to show the members’ every day lives by following them 24/7. The program was supposed to reveal the members’ houses, something that hasn’t been revealed before on television.
Fans, who have been waiting for the program, could not hide their disappointment at the cancellation notice. Fans have been criticizing QTV, stating things such as, “let us at least hear the reason behind this,” “how can you suddenly cancel after advertising the program,” “and I knew this would happen since the postponement.”

So at least, QTV was right when they said they didn't produce the show. I honestly think some of the fans have the right to be mad. If I had subscribed to QTV specifically because I was anticipating this broadcast, I would be mad too, lol. It doesn't mean we should start playing the blame game or anything, but just saying. ;) I'll be waiting for what C-Jes intends to do with the footage.
