Popular K-pop group arrives in Lima at around 11 in the morning to present a unique concert this Sunday.
JYJ, The pop Korean trio consisting of Jaejong, Yoochun and Junsu, arrives today to Lima to offer a unique concert at our capital tomorrow, Sunday, March 11, at the Monumental Stadium.
Hundreds of Peruvian fans wait for Asia’s best-selling boy band at the Jorge Chávez International Airport, who will arrive at our capital around 11 in the morning.
The great success of JYJ has lead to the fact that in early January, Peruvian fans bought half of the tickets on sale for their concert in just 30 minutes, achieving a record sales that not even international stars like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus can achieve.
“JYJ and Sasaeng fans” has become a hot topic on several websites recently. JYJ are currently on tour in South America, during their press conference in Chile on the 8th of March they voiced out about the incident and gave a little explanation. As news keeps changing and more reports are made about these ‘sasaeng fans’, it seems it will be very hard to gain a full understanding of their feelings about this controversy.
However, their siblings who have been staying with them, stepped up and expressed how they feel regarding their sasaeng fans.
Jaejoong’s sister and Junsu’s twin brother’s tweets regarding this issue…
Jaejoong’s sister Minkyeong :
This is the reason why celebrities get depressed and commit suicide! This is the reason why they become bi-polar or get depressed! I am past my 30’s yet when I get a little mad my anger will just build up~ They’re sasaeng yet I think they rather are Grim Reapers or stalkers! When I heard Jaejoong’s mention on Kakao Talk I was really surprised and my heart skipped a beat.
Even though there are so many words and expressions, why is it that Jaejoong’s has become the most frightening and depressing one? Even three year olds are able to express themselves when they aren’t able to do what they wish to do. For the purpose of one’s self-fulfillment, they hurt others mentally (through the heart).
They’re still children who were already mentally exhausted even without them! [sasaeng]. Even though I am next to him [not in a literal sense] there is nothing I can say or do to help him. I hate this sad reality! The world’s most depressing message. thought. expression from Jaejoong.
However, there aren’t just sasaengs around Jaejoong. I recall something he once said before, ‘I’ll sing even if there is just one person who will listen to my music and protect me’
Thus he is very thankful and is able to continue to sing. Right now Jaejoong is singing for those fans and is doing so happily. He isn’t singing for sasaengs, correct? No matter how hard it is and how much it has hurt, for those fans whom have been supporting him with smiles, even today they should be able to support/protect him. Read More →
Major media outlets of Chile have just experienced the spread of K-pop.
Before the opening of JYJ‘s solo concert on March 9th, major daily newspapers like the ‘Las Ultimas Noticias‘ covered the boys preparing for the show from the minute they arrived at the international airport.
‘Las Ultimas Noticias’ is considered one of the most influential newspapers in Chile in terms of public recognition. Under the title “Crazy for Korean group JYJ,” the paper reported, “After 40 hours, JYJ, a group that has reached the top of the world, has finally landed in Chile. Despite their arrival being in the early morning, so many fans arrived that police had to come on to the scene for security measures.”
It has been decided for the DVD of drama which Ji Sung and JYJ’s Jaejoong star in, “Protect The Boss”, will be released for sale and rental.
★ Highly-anticipated milestone, Jaejoong’s first Korean drama!
Jaejoong, who has always been very popular as a K-pop artist, finally made his appearance in a Korean drama for the first time, following his appearances in the movie “Heaven’s Postman” and the Japanese TV drama “Sunao Ni Narenakute”. He effectively takes on the role of a cool male boss, who is good at what he does, and is highly trusted by the company!
★ A big break in Ji Sung’s acting, where he shows a different side of him!
Jisung, who starred in a series of hit dramas, including “Swallow The Sun” and “Royal Family”, plays the role of a willful, good-for-nothing son from a distinguished family, who fares poorly in his job. With his acting, Ji Sung brings to life the character of a good-for-nothing, a big break for him in Korea!!
★ Much interest in the cute competition between Jaejoong and Ji Sung!
Jaejoong, who plays the role of a competent cool-guy, and Ji Sung, who plays the role of a good-for-nothing son of a wealthy family, create much laughter when they act out comical and cute scenes where they physically fight over, the female protagonist, a newbie secretary. A romance-comedy that is both romantic and hilarious unfolds in the office and in the secretary’s office!!
★ First time in history! Simultaneously broadcast by two broadcasters in Japan!
A highest viewing rate of 20.5% was recorded in Korea! (The drama) became a topic of discussion when the broadcast was extended at the last-minute with 2 episodes added, and it was quickly decided for it to be broadcast in Japan! It became an exception, when DATV and KNTV both began broadcasting it simultaneously in November 2011!!
★ Luxury benefits included in each DVD-BOX!
Each DVD-BOX is bundled with a luxurious photobook and postcard set with Jaejoong and Ji Sung as the focus! In addition, in DVD-BOX II includes a special disc with NG clips will feature the honest sides of the cast, as well as other (related) programmes that were broadcast in Korea!!

The Korean K-Pop group “JYJ,” held a press conference yesterday where they spoke about their flight delay in route to our country and also about their love from their fans.

JYJ recently said that they were surprised by South American affection.
On March 8, JYJ held a press conference for their ‘JYJ South America Tour 2012′ and said, “We arrived at the Airport early this morning, and there were lots of fans there to welcome us. We were surprised at the many female fans who kissed us on the cheeks.”
South American fans welcomed JYJ with traditional South American greetings. The group members were surprised by the cultural differences but they soon smiled and appreciated the fans’ support.
The members were also surprised at the fact that there were many male fans in South America.
JYJ says, “We think that many fans love and support us for our powerful performances and talented vocal skills. Even though we are in South America for the first time, we knew about the country through social networks. South American fans also send lots of packages to our agency. They don’t know much Korean but they wrote short messages in Korean and it made those fans memorable. We will do our best to make the concert perfect for their support.”
JYJ will hold their exclusive concert on March 9 at Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile, and on March 11 at Explanada Sur del Estadio Monumental in Lima, Peru.
It is uncommon that Santiago receives new artists from East Asia and this is a special treat for many young pop lovers.
The boys were scheduled to arrive yesterday in Santiago and hundreds of fans gathered to await for their arrival. Unfortunately, JYJ’s flight was delayed and they won’t make it to Chile until later today.
The band’s global debut album, The Beginning, was released in October 2010. JYJ’s second studio album and first Korean full-length album In Heaven was released on September 28, 2011.
In August 2011, JYJ were appointed Goodwill Ambassadors for the United Nations agency UNAIDS. JYJ and UNAIDS launched a social media awareness campaign to combat HIV/AIDS discrimination via Twitter using the hashtag #LoveAlways.
In November and December 2011, JYJ launched their Mango Tree Project working with World Vision and ELLE Korea to plant “mango trees of hope” to children in South Sudan. JYJ, with fellow artists Park Yoohwan and Song Jihyo, have recorded videos in Korean, Japanese, and English discussing the project to raise awareness and encourage donations, with the goal of planting 20,000 mango trees ahead of Christmas in South Sudan. The mango trees symbolized hope, as well as providing food and a sheltered meeting spot which could serve as a classroom for children.
Note: Koalasplayground.com is a popular drama blog, and its very positive post on Yoochun and “Rooftop Prince” warranted a highlight no matter the lateness.
Ahhhhh, Rooftop Prince, you are so diabolical! How can you release this fantastical and tempting long trailer and then tell me I have to wait 10! more days to sample your delicious goodness? The cast held a press conference yesterday where the main leads showed up looking dashing and fashionable, with the ladies continuing the now extended trend of going for shorter than short hems. At least Jung Yumi is wearing shorts under her dress, whew. I love everyone’s outfits (especially preppy rocker Yoochun and playful and chic Han Ji Min), trendy and fresh but still all very pretty to look at. But I can’t get over how amazing the preview looked, with the sageuk scenes intense and moody, while the modern scenes were so funny I bust a gut and spent a better part of the morning chuckling randomly.
