Korean agencies to hold an emergency meeting on the 14th to discuss Japanese activities

Posted: 14/03/2011 in SHINee

Japan experienced a devastating  8.9-magnitude earthquake on March 11th, which consequently lead to a  halt in everyone’s promotional activities. It was recently revealed that  Korean entertainment agencies will be holding an emergency meeting with  their Japanese counterparts in order to discuss the future of their  scheduled activities.
Last weekend, Korean entertainment agencies spent the majority of  their time attempting to get in contact with their Japanese labels  through SNS in order to check on their wellbeing. However, business  discussions will resume on the 14th through that formal meeting.
A representative of SM Entertainment revealed, “We were more concerned with the health of our Japanese employees so we  did not discuss any business-related matters.  On the 14th, we will  begin meeting and discussing.” The representative went to explain that SNSD is currently scheduled to release ‘Mr. Taxi‘ in April, and SHINee’s Japanese debut was planned for May.

A representative of JYP Entertainment commented, “We  have a meeting scheduled for the morning of the 14th.  As the situation  is very severe, we will be making a careful decision.“  2PM recently returned to Korea after completing their round of promotions  and do not have future Japanese activities scheduled for the time  being.  Employees in JYP Japan also made their return to Korea after the  earthquake.
A representative of YG Entertainment stated, “We could not get in contact with our Japanese label last weekend so we will be discussing business-related matter on the 14th.”  2NE1 was reported to have returned to Korea on the 12th after going through the earthquake on the 11th.
A representative of Cube Entertainment revealed,  “Our  Tokyo label has resumed operation.  We will, however, be discussing the  matter further today and finalize a decision within the day.” B2ST is officially scheduled for their debut on the 16th.
Nega Network will also be holding an emergency meeting on the 14th to discuss the Brown Eyed Girls‘ schedule next week, as the girls are currently scheduled for press interviews and other activities.
