JYJ documentary cancelled ahead of opening


A documentary about boy band JYJ will no longer open in theaters on Feb. 9 as planned. The group’s agency CJeS Entertainment announced on Jan. 30 that “The Day” will no longer be shown at theaters due to a breach of contract by CGV theaters.

The agency said that it is currently in the process of directing a civil complaint to the Fair Trade Commission and the Grievance Committee against the movie theater company in order to fight for its rights. Meanwhile a spokesperson from CGV has said that the cancellation of the documentary was due to an error in the contractual process. “We made the choice not to go ahead with showing the movie due to the gravity of the problem encountered during the working process,” said a representative from CGV.

The documentary was slated to be shown on the cable channel QTV last year but was also cancelled days before it was scheduled to go out.
