It’s been 10 years since singers Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu made their debut in the K-pop world.
The artists, who currently make up the idol group JYJ, showed K-pop fans that they’ve only gotten better and stronger as they performed for a total of 11,000 fans at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai over the weekend, according to the Korean news outlet Osen Entertainment.
As the group made their return to Shanghai in four years, the trio has vowed to work harder in releasing material as a group and solo entertainers.

HONG KONG — South Korea has selected “Sea Fog” (aka ‘Haemoo’) as its contender for the foreign-language Academy Awards race.
The film, directed by Shim Sung-bo, is a largely sea-borne tale of human desperation both on the part of economic refugees and the fishermen turned human smugglers who transport them across unsafe waters.
The selection is made by a specially convened committee organized by the Korean Film Council (KOFIC).
Production was by Lewis Kim with leading director Bong Joon-ho (“Snowpiercer”) as executive producer. International sales are by Finecut.
South Korea has had a huge impact on film-making in Asia in the past two decades, but no Korean film has ever been selected as an Oscar nominee.
Q: You were in Shanghai in 2010 and you returned only 4 years after. What are your feelings?
JS: I am looking forward to our communication with fans.
JJ: (After a long wait) Ah, yes! There is no need for interpretation for Korean reporters! (Normally during overseas concerts, the Korean artists will first say something and then the interpreter will relevantly interpret what was said.)
Q: What are your thoughts in standing on the stage of the opening ceremony of the Incheon Asian Games?
JJ: Firstly, it has been a really long time since the 3 of us last appeared on national broadcasting. During President Park Geun-hye’s inauguration we appeared for like, 2 seconds? (laughs)
YC: I wasn’t thinking about appearing on national broadcasting but as a performance. After coming down from the stage, the staffs all welled up in tears.
JJ: “You appeared a lot! You guys appeared a lot on TV!” (laughs) [T/N: JJ was repeating what staffs said to them]
YC: After the broadcast, we received congratulatory messages from our friends/acquaintances.
Q: Despite being the ambassadors of the Incheon Asian Games, there was a reversal with regards to your appearance in the opening ceremony and you have seemed to have been through a lot.
