There had been an advance sale of ‘The Day,’ which only screens at Lotte Cinema theaters, on the website of Lotte Cinema on the 20th at 1pm. The advance sale was only for 8 screenings with JYJ’s stage greetings.
The website, however, crashed down as soon as the sale had begun and Lotte Cinema tweeted on twitter “Lotte cinema is under restoration of the site of Lotte Cinema because around 110,000 people accessed at the same time. We apologize for the inconvenience and we will try our best to restore the site.”
This documentary film includes JYJ’s daily life, dreams and other honest life stories. It was supposed to be aired on QTV, but it had been cancelled. Later, it was planned to be screened at CGV but CGV informed the cancellation. Finally, Lotte Cinema confirmed screening of the film. Continue reading
We want to see JYJ [2012.02.13 No.897]
[Culture] CGV abruptly canceled the screening of JYJ’s daily documentary <The Day> …
Still have to read SM’s countenance despite risk of legal dispute?
This time too, JYJ couldn’t come back. On 29 Jan, JYJ’s management company C-JeS Entertainment announced, “CGV has noticed the cancellation of the screening of JYJ’s daily documentary <The Day>.” It happened only 10 days after the contract between C-JeS and CJ has been sealed. C-JeS stated, “CGV suddenly notified us about the cancellation via phone call. Even though we have suggested them several times to modify the contract and said that we would agree to other conditions, we eventually received a cancellation notice.” C-JeS has filed a complaint to the FTC and the Anti-Corruption & Civil Rights Commission. What is the reason that made CGV of CJ terminate the contract despite risk of legal dispute?
‘External pressure’ toward a certain idol movie
CJ and CGV’s official answer is that “there was a problem in the contract process, which was belatedly found out. Both sides have tried to find an agreement but failed.” Kim Taehee-ssi of CGV’s PR team said, “Before deciding the screening, CGV hasn’t seen that documentary even once. CGV’s related team didn’t also properly follow the reporting procedures.” CG also informed C-Jes about the ‘problem of contract process’, such as, “exchange of emails relating to the screening between both sides without seeing the documentary, press release without prior confirmation about the final screening scale, contract sealing without going through internal reporting procedures,” etc. Nevertheless, C-JeS stated, “On 21 Jan, CGV backed out of the contract, saying that ‘the contract wasn’t delivered through the proper channel’. We already said that they could see the documentary at anytime and suggested to postpone the opening day so that they could have internal preview, but they kept insisting on the cancellation.” If what C-JeS said is true, we should focus more on ‘CGV’s internal problems’.

JYJ’s daily life documentary was supposed to be a Valentine’s Day commemoration for fans, but CGV theatres failed to fulfil the contract unilaterally, causing the screening of ‘The Day’ to be cancelled in February. We wanted to delay the screening time of the premiere or modify the contract’s content to make it more valid. In the end, we had to announce the cancellation of the screening.
Originally, the contents of the documentary was not made for theatre broadcast as we wanted it to be a service for local fans. Hence, we felt more regrettable about our choice to use theatres and our plans had fallen through. However, our determination to share the documentary with the fans and our hard work to accomplish our task has brought about an amicable discussion with Lotte Cinema. Soon, we decided the premiere date. Also, a special JYJ’s stage greeting is expected to be shown on the date of premiere and in theatres on weekends.
