Philippines withdraws hosting JYJ's Asian Games PR roadshow this November


JYJ is supposed to visit the Philippines, particularly the famous white beach, Boracay, for the promotional roadshow of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games on November 27-29th.

Unfortunately, Super Typhoon Haiyan (ST Yolanda in the Philippines) hit the Visayas region, where Boracay is, terribly last November 8. Thus, the Philippine Olympic Committee issued an statement saying, "Thank you for giving us the privilege to be the host for this year's Olympic Council of Asia's 32nd General Assembly along with the Asian Games Centennial Festival. Our painstaking and meticulous preparations were all set. However, this recent calamity has redirected our priorities... Because of this dreadful news, we would like to express our deepest regrets and apologies that we are hereby compelled to humbly withdraw from hosting this years General Assembly and Centennial Celebration."

Following the withdrawal, the OCA has decided to postpone the scheduled event. The President of OCA and Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC), His Excellency Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, stated his deepest condolences and relayed supporting the Philippines in its rebuilding efforts.

New dates for the event in PH will be announced as soon as the situation backs to normal. Meanwhile, JYJ is still scheduled to do their PR roadshow in Guangzhou, China on November 21st.
