I hate hearing stuff like this.
Junsu recently did a performance for National Para Game in Goyang, which is a sports event for the Handicapped. The even was handled by SBS and broadcast live, all except Junsu’s performance that is. The following is a fan’s thoughts about the matter and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of 24-7KPOP. The comment is as follows:
Basically, Junsu had his first official gig as a solo artiste at the 32nd Sports Day for the Handicapped today. They printed his name 시아준수 on the tickets and promoted that he would be performing there.
SBS was covering all the performances and right before ZE:A came on, they introduced the group as the last act and when they were done, they took down all the cameras and packed them away.
After that, Kim Chang Ryeol, one of the MCs for the night, came back on and introduced Junsu as the actual last act of the night. By then, the cameras had already stopped rolling and SBS was done airing the event.
Junsu apparently came on stage with a big smile and said he was so grateful to have been invited to such a wonderful event. He said it was his first official gig as a solo artiste and he was so hapoy to be there. He performed with a big smile on his face and was very energetic.
Fans said that most of the fans there were sobbing because they thought it totally unfair that Junsu had basically been used to bring more people to the event, and then denied the airtime he deserves.
My heart aches for him. It really does. JYJ are human beings too. They have emotions, they hurt, they cry. SBS, KBS, MBC… stop. Haven’t you done enough damage to their poor, wounded souls? And our hearts too? We’re not indestructible.
Junsu’s tweets following the event:
(11:44pm KST) Though my performance wasn’t broadcasted today.. it was such a happy and above all, meaningful time for me as I was able to spend it with all of you.. Remember only those feelings of joy, and have a safe trip home^^ I love you http://pic.twitter.com/VlCNHo4h
(12:22am KST) Since when did I start harboring this desperation that I feel whenever I want to meet you all.. Whether I’m broadcasted on TV or not isn’t what’s important.. To all those who were with me today, I love you~♥ http://pic.twitter.com/Uo0kgd3m

It always saddens me to hear how an event has deliberately or unintentionally messed up a singer’s performance. I truly hope things like this will not happen again because every artist deserves a chance to shine in front of their fans. For those who did not get to see Junsu’s performance, check the video below and let us know what you think about the matter.
