Amidst the controversy, C-JeS Entertainment explained that what happened wasn't a boycott. The conflict was merely resulted from miscommunication, and the organizers and press people managed to iron things out thereafter.

In a statement made to OSEN on September 12, C-JeS Entertainment explained that at the event the reporters were asked to minimize the flashing from their cameras. However, media people misunderstood what the hosts had said leaving them to complain about the notice. Rest assured, C-JeS Entertainment said no such boycott occurred because the issue was settled amicably between the organizers and the reporters. At the end of the day, JYJ completed the press conference successfully.

As to how JYJ handled the commotion, the agency representative said that the group continued smile and act accommodatingly during the 30-minute interview event though some reporters were buzzing with complaints in the middle of the event. To cooperate with the reporters, they even had another photo sessions with the reporters after they made their complaints known.

JYJ travelled to Taiwan just recently where they performed in front of 9,000 fans at the TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall for their "The Return of the King" Asian Tour. This is JYJ's first time in Taiwan in 3 years!

The boys will be heading to Shanghai, China for a show on September 20.
