As the damaged of the massive earthquake in Japan is spreading, Hallyu stars Japanese schedules are being cancelled or postponed as well.
Kim Hyun-joong was to attend a promotion event in Tokyo nhk Hall on the 13th but it got cancelled and he never left. Ryu Soo-young had a fan meeting in Osaka Nikko Hotel but that was postponed. Singer and actor Kim Jeong-hoon also had a fan meeting on the same day in Saitama Super Arena but cancelled and returned to Korea on the 13th. He had been preparing since the 8th.
Future events in Japan are also uncertain. Jang Geun-suk was looking forward to his singing debut stage with 20 thousand or so fans on the 27th in Tokyo but even that is not certain. His management says, "The Japanese also are not sure of what will happen so we are going to wait a couple of days".
Kara is planned to appear in the "Universal Dream Live 2011" in Osaka Universal Studio on Asahi TV "Music Station" on the 13th but is waiting for their Japanese management to call.
It also looks like those singers that were to debut in Japan might not go according to plan.
Female group 2NE1 was supposed to debut through Asahi TV "Music Station" and start overall local activities starting at the end o March, but was postponed due to the great earthquake and isn't sure of what will happen now. Their management YG Entertainment said, "We might have to postpone the entire plan".
Even male group Beast is supposed to be revolving on their promotion activities but is stepping back to see the situation. MBLAQ who planned a long term stay in Japan for their Japanese debut in April say, "The Japanese entertainment can't confirm anything and so can't we".
The Hallyu stars who have cancelled or postponed their activities altogether say, "It is a definite thing we cancel our events". Kim Jeong-hoon's management says, "This was his first event after being discharged from the army but as the damages from the tragedy spreads it was a definite decision to cancel it".
