JYP Entertainment’s “solution” to Wonder Girls fans’ concerns isn’t well thought-out

Filed under: music — extrakorea @ 3:11 am

In an attempt to address the brouhaha surrounding the departure of Sun-mi from the Wonder Girls, JYP Entertainment has come up with this strategy:

In an effort to accommodate the needs of the fans, JYP Entertainment has decided to set up a storage room in order to better the communication between the fans and our company.

[ snip ]

Since we have now created an official storage room, we ask for the fans to please leave their written questions on the designated wall by the company building. Every 24 hours, we will take pictures of the wall and take the questions down into the storage room.

So if somebody want to ask a question, they have to physically trek all the way to the JYP Entertainment building, walk up to the designated Wall of Woe, and tape a letter onto it. What’s wrong with answering e-mail? Or setting up a special web-site, like an official Internet forum with designated moderators, or something like that?

What’s worse is the fact that they’re encouraging people to write on paper. Have they already forgotten that seven Korean pop artists (including the Wonder Girls themselves) have recently received letters written in blood? (See here, here, and here.) Clearly, somebody at JYP Entertainment hasn’t thought this through carefully.
