The group JYJ (Jaejoong Kim, Yuchun Park and Junsu Kim) made a big wave in Japan.
JYJ had their solo concert ‘JYJ Unforgettable Live Concert in Japan 2011’ at Hitach Park in Ibaraki, Japan for 2 days from Oct 15 to Oct 16, with 80,000 fans gathered.
The concert was a great hit beyond the sponsoring body’s expectation as the crowd also filled the standing sections on the day of the events.
All seats of JYJ solo concert in Japan had been sold out and the website of ticket sales was down as soon as the sales started in Sep.
Hitach Park was completely packed from the early morning with tens of thousands of fans to see JYJ who had not had activities in Japan for a while since the earthquake in March. Even the trains heading to Hitach Park could not take any more passengers and had to just pass through some stations around the park without stopping because the trains were filled with JYJ’s fans. Also the traffic was paralyzed by the cars from all over Japan from the dawn.
“We were aware of the popularity [of JYJ] because all seats had been sold out,
but all staff was really surprised after over 10,000 of crowd also filled all standing sectors” said a concert staff.
JYJ showed their best performances with the songs from ‘In Heaven’, the latest Korean album, and ‘The beginning’, the World Wide album. Also the crowd got excited during the songs from the dramas that each member took part in both [TV] appearance and OST: ‘Found You’ from SKK Scandal, ‘I’ll protect you’ from Protect the Boss and ‘You are so beautiful’ from Scent of a Woman.
The fans gathered from Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka and all over Japan to see their stage in spite of the bad weather.
“We are really thrilled to meet Japanese fans at last. Actually many people worried when we decided to have concerts in the earthquake area, but we did not want to miss the chance to meet Japanese fans. We felt so much love from you and got more courage today”, commented JYJ right before the finale.
They continued with tears, “The situation is difficult to meet you through TV or concerts
[in Japan] but we will do our best, make our music hard and not give up. We always appreciate your everlasting love and will show more improved JYJ”.
The 40,000 of fans cheered JYJ by shouting out “It’s fine, JYJ!” with tears while the members were expressing their sincere thanks. JYJ sang ‘In Heaven’ passionately as the last song in return.
“[JYJ’s] Activities in Japan have been stopped by many obstacles, but we felt so much passion of the fans who love and support JYJ through this solo concert. We promise that we will have more concerts regularly in the future” said Chang Ju Baek, the CEO of C-JeS Entertainment that takes care of JYJ’s management.
Meanwhile, JYJ will continue their journey to Barcelona (Spain) and Berlin (Germany) for their solo concerts of world tour.
