Description

[Anchor Lead]A number of artists that were scheduled to appear at a concert sponsored by the city of Uijeongbu cancelled because of protests from some liberal groups and online communities. The concert was meant to celebrate the centennial of the establishment of the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division, and the city government has warned it may take legal action against the civic groups that opposed the show. [Pkg]This concert was held last Saturday to mark the centennial of the establishment of the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division. Singer Insooni stepped up to the stage but soon came back down after issuing an apology.[Soundbite] Insooni(Singer) : "There were some incidents outside, so I don't think I can sing today."Other singers who were slated to perform failed to show up and the concert was eventually cancelled altogether. As the anniversary celebration overlapped with the mourning period for two school girls who were killed by an American tank in 2002, the internet was flooded with calls for the concert's cancellation, protest letters and even threats. The city of Uijeongbu said the cancellation was caused by the threats and interference by progressive civic groups such as the Korean Federation of Trade Unions and some media. However, the civic groups which have been opposing the concert claim that they did not pressure the singers to cancel their appearances. They are also opposing the Uijeongbu government's plan to build a Korea-U.S. friendship tower on the land returned by the U.S. military.[Soundbite] Song Jeong-hyeon(Uijeongbu Civic Group) : "When it's evident that the city finances would deteriorate drastically, why should the city spend money to build a Korea-U.S. friendship tower?"The Uijeongbu municipal government is looking into taking legal action against the civic groups and seeking damage compensation for ruining the anniversary concert.
