SS501 has opportunities for activities but not at Golden Melody Awards

Korean drama ‘Boys Over Flowers’ is currently being broadcasted on GTV, and after the announcement that main leads, Lee MinHo and Goo HyeSun will be coming to Taiwan for promotional activities on 3-June, Kim HyunJoong who acts as Yoon JiHoo in the drama will also visit Taiwan with his group, SS501 on 26-June for 4 days, and will hold a fan meeting at Taiwan International Convention Centre on 28-June at 7pm.

SS501 has gathered attention as they sang for F4 Yoon JiHoo’s theme song ‘Because I am Stupid’, and there has been rumors that SS501 will also perform in the Golden Melody Awards held on 27-June. However, the joint organizer AzioTV says that they did not send the invitation, and indicates that they knew that SS501 would be here for an activity, and so would not consider them since they are not here especially for the awards show.

Kim HyunJoong getting all the popularity through ‘Boys Over Flowers’ will lead SS501 to do a series of promotional activities in Asia. Their handshake session held in Tokyo on 17-May gathered 7,000 fans and they will also head over to Hong Kong for a fan meeting on 1-July. Organised by Brokers Brothers Herald, the highest priced ticket for the Taiwan fan meeting is NTD 3,800. This fan meeting is also the critical consideration that SS501 couldn’t attend the Golden Melody Awards. AzioTV frankly revealed that overseas guests for Golden Melody Awards had always had their other activities after the awards ceremony and that their other activities cannot be involved with monetary terms. This terms and conditions cannot be changed and they had not made any request for invitation through Warner music.
