JYJ‘s solo concert at Ibaraki Hitachi Park confirmed their fame in Japan, as they managed to garner more than 80,000 fans over two days!
Concert tickets for ‘JYJ UNFORGETTABLE LIVE CONCERT IN JAPAN 2011‘ sold out as soon as the tickets were available for the general public, and the server crashed due to the influx of visitors. Every seat for the solo concert was sold out, and even standing room at the venue was practically brimming over with excited fans.
On October 3rd, thousands of fans flocked to the park to see JYJ perform. It’s being reported that all parts of the country had been hit with heavy traffic, due to the amount of fans driving to the concert. An associate of the concert commented, “We were already surprised because the tickets have been sold out before, but the associates were surprised again by JYJ’s fame once again when the standing sections (which could hold a capacity of thousands) were full as well.”
JYJ had put on a spectacular show, performing songs from their first Korean album, ‘In Heaven‘, as well other hit songs from their worldwide album, ‘The Beginning‘.
They also had the crowd going wild when they performed OST songs from dramas that JYJ were affiliated with, such as “I Found You” from ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal‘, “Protect You” from ‘Protect the Boss‘, and “You Are So Beautiful” from ‘Scent of a Woman‘.
One 40-year-old fan commented, “I really like JYJ. I’m a housewife so on the day of the ticket site opening, I waited in front of the computer from morning to night waiting for the site to reboot and applied for the lottery to sit towards the front. Luckily, I was given a good seat. The JYJ members are good-looking and they have a great harmony. They are also funny, which makes them even more popular.”
Another fan, aged 45, admitted, “My daughter and wife love JYJ so inevitably, I ended up liking their music as well. The whole family left the house at 3:00 AM to watch their concert, but we couldn’t get to the front of the standing section. I’m so excited, regardless, because I got to see JYJ’s performance.”
