Recently, a festival poster was released online, attracting attention with the announcement that Park Yoochun will decorate the finale stage on May 18th.

However, Park Yoochun was indicted on charges of using Philopon in 2019 and was sentenced to 10 months in prison with a 2-year probation period. He also faced criticism for allegations of substantial tax evasion and has been scarcely seen on Korean broadcasts.

Local media outlets inquired with the Immigration Services Agency of Japan regarding whether Park Yoochun’s entry into Japan and broadcasting activities are allowed under the “Immigration Control Law”. This law prohibits the entry of foreigners with a history of drug crimes into Japan.

The Immigration Services Agency of Japan responded, “The law generally applies to foreigners, but there is a provision that allows entry for specific foreigners.

Park Yoochun visited Japan last February to hold a fan meeting and dinner show.

Upon hearing this news, some media outlets and netizens expressed reactions such as “Why allow a controversial figure to stand on stage?“, “Can coming to Japan to make money be recognized as a special case?“, “I don’t want to see a criminal at the festival“…
