K-pop trio JYJ member Kim Junsu will get to promote his new album as planned, his agency said on Wednesday.

C-JeS Entertainment said through a press release that the artist will release his album “Incredible” on July 15 and that major entertainment firm Loen Entertainment, distributing the album, will also promote the new release as originally promised.

Back Chang-ju, CEO of C-JeS, was quoted as saying, “We have come to an amicable conclusion regarding Tuesday’s conflict between our agency and Loen… We have confirmed that they will pursue the distribution of Junsu’s second studio album and all scheduled marketing and promotional activities that had previously agreed to carry out. Also, fans will be able to watch Junsu’s showcase live on MelOn TV…”

Kim’s album was on the verge of facing difficulties promoting his album when on Tuesday, Loen, who had verbally agreed to handle the online and offline distribution of Junsu’s new album, suddenly notified C-JES that they decided not to promote and market the album.

Loen had also stated that Junsu’s showcase, which was scheduled to go live on MelOnTV, could instead go on live on LoenTV, which has must less exposure than MelOnTV because it is merely one of the YouTube channels officially owned by MelOn.

In response, Loen had said that they have not made any final decisions and the two parties have been discussing on the terms of promoting and marketing the album.

Meanwhile, Junsu will kick off his Asia tour “XIA 2ND ASIA TOUR CONCERT INCREDIBLE” in Seoul on August 3 and 4.
