The concert has been officially cancelled, as announced by C-JeS on April 1st. Here’s the announcement:
처음 월드 투어 콘서트 공지에서 선정 된 인도네시아, 싱가폴 공연이 취소 됨에 따라
현지에 계신 많은 팬들이 실망 하신 부분에 대해서는 매우 죄송스럽게 생각하며,
차후에 좋은 모습으로 찾아 뵐 수 있도록 노력 하겠습니다.
Vague translation: The appearance in Indonesia and Singapore, firstly announced in the notice as part of the world tour, has been cancelled. We’re sorry to disappoint the fans and hope to meet you all with a better outlook in future.
Just yesterday C-JeS Entertainment dropped news that Indonesia JYJ Concert will be cancelled, and following which Faith & D Entertainment announced on their Facebook page that the Singapore JYJ Concert will also be cancelled. Tons of fans have since poured out their sadness on the relevant pages online. The following are official statements from both companies:
Hello, this is C-JeS Entertainment.
JYJ’s World Tour Indonesia Concert has been canceled.
On the 26th, C-Jes Entertainment formally informed the Indonesia promoter our decision to cancel. We have continuously warned the Indonesian promoter of their continued failure to abide by the contract, and because the promoter failed to correct themselves even after [the warning], we have unfortunately decided to cancel since they would be unable to hold the concert smoothly.
We tried our best to not cancel because of the numerous fans waiting in the area, but after considering the dangerous possibility of there being damage to JYJ’s image, we have regrettably made our final decision to cancel.
Furthermore, in regards to the Singapore concert, because we are in the process of changing the original promoter and consulting with the people in the area, please wait for the final confirmation from C-JeS Entertainment.
The only country canceled in JYJ’s World Tour is Indonesia, and we will give further notice about changes and additions to areas holding the World Tour.

Dear Fans and Media
This is an official announcement to inform everyone that we have just been notified by CJes Entertainment, the artiste agency of JYJ that they have decided to cancel JYJ World Tour Concert in Singapore which is scheduled on 23 April 2011 at Singapore Indoor Stadium.
It is with utmost regret that we have to accept this cancellation notice from the artiste agency at this point in time. We have submitted the final plans for stage, seating and ticketing for the agency’s approval so as to proceed with the official announcement on ticket sale. These plans are in accordance with the regulations required by the authorities in Singapore and the budget allocated for the concert. It is most unfortunate that the plans are not approved by CJes and their decision is to cancel the concert. We respect the agency’s decision and, with great regret, we are unable to change their mind but to accept this unforeseen circumstance that is beyond our control.
We understand the disappointment as well as the inconvenience caused due to the cancellation and we sincerely apologize – especially to the fans of JYJ.
Faith & D Entertainment
However, as one can tell from C-JeS Entertainment’s statement, it only mentioned the Singapore concert to change hands, and not cancellation. Does that mean the concert plans will go on at a later date?
There were some speculations made by fans that the current local company “released too much information”, however it is plain for all to see that the staff has been trying their best to work with fans and make things work out. It does not seem that the original company has a good reputation either from previous fanmeetings held in other countries, so we hope the next local organiser who would finally hold the actual JYJ Concert will do their best and make it happen.
