”(~) Someday in June, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong (formerly DBSK) stopped off at my fortune-telling shop ‘Yakata’ while taking for a walk in China Town. I analyzed the lines of his palm and predicted his life expectancy. He has artless and amiable personality in spite of being a star. He’s honest and rather pure, so everything was done in a cozy atmosphere. Although he’s talented in singing, dancing, acting and etc., the reason he has been continuously loved is his personality. (~) “
+ Let’s look back on her fortunetelling that even startled Jaejoong, then:
- He’s healthy but the problem is that he likes smoking
– Alcohol is okay
– Jaejoong has good sense and talents
– Jaejoong is the type of a person whose emotions and feelings are easily shown on the face. He wants to hide it but others still can sense, which is also the reason he’s so much loved because it’s very cute of him.
– Jaejoong will get married at the age of 30. (But he said he won’t :P)
Thai newspaper “Kim Jaejoong and his solo mission, embarking on a tour around Asia”
[SUMMARIZE by @Lookkaew_SK]
The newspaper basically printed his previous interview that we’ve read before, but I love the conclusion on the last paragraph in that article. It wrote:
“How famous was he 10 years ago, Kim Jaejoong remains just as popular 10 years later. Despite all the changes that have occurred, in terms of members; music style and images, fans who are loyal to Kim Jaejoong still give him a warm support as always.”
Where to start? Kkk Always my question when I want to write a fan-account. I guess after I attended Jaejoong’s solo concert in Seoul I knew I wanted to see one more of his solo concerts. But all dates that got released were so short-notice that it was really hard (read: impossible) for me to attend any of them. ;;
So then one night the JYJ Tokyo Dome concerts got announced! OMFG I wanted to go so badly, you don’t even know. But the news was released one month before the concerts so it was also too short notice for me… ;; ;; ;; ;; ;; Though soon after I started hearing rumours about a Jaejoong solo concert in Japan, aka: my dream, I’ve always wanted to attend a concert in Japan. Judging from Japanese concert DVDs, the fans look so respectful, they’re always so quiet when the singer sings, so you’re really able to listen to the artist.
So soon after the Yokohama dates got announced. It was, again, really short notice.. But I really /really/ wanted to go. Three days…Jaejoong…grand…finale…concert… I had to attend these concerts. It wasn’t easy but I was able to work everything out and get leave at work. But then the second problem were tickets, knowing that Jaejoong is immensely popular in Japan, trying to get tickets for this concert was going to be hell. Luckily my dear Japanese friend managed to get me tickets for all three days ;; ;; ;; ;; ;;!!
So after my friend managed to get me the concert tickets, I booked plane-&-hotel-tickets. This all happened so fast the countdown to leave for Japan was really short, only about 10 days? #excited kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. Since this was going to be my first trip to Japan I was rather nervous. Will I be able to find my way in Japan? How will I get from Narita-airport to Yokohama? Will the people be able to speak English? Eeehhh So many questions.. But luckily, everything turned out just fine ^__^/
JYJ3’s Note: “Asahi Shinbun” is one of the largest Japanese daily newspaper, with 7.64 million copies issued per day (via @miar815)
It was an unusual sight in a way. Kim Jejung, a member of Korean trio artist, JYJ, had his solo live concert last June 26 at Yokohama Arena, Kanagawa Prefecture. Fans’ screams even had tearful tinge in it, and there were some fans who couldn’t stop crying. This scene looked similar to when JYJ held a concert at Tokyo Dome this April after three years. When Jejung, Kim Junsu and Park Yoochun appeared on stage, fans’ shouts of delight had a tearful tone, and some fans kept crying while holding towels.
These three [JYJ] have hardly been able to do any entertainment activities in Japan these past four years. They brought a case against their former management company in Korea as they were unsatisfied with the content of their contract with the company. In 2009, when they were at the peak of their popularity as members of “Tohoshinki”, Avex also ceased management of their activities in Japan and made a statement announcing a halt of activity of the three. Since then, their entertainment activities decreased sharply in both countries [Korea and Japan].
Yet their fans went out of their way to watch their live concerts in Europe, America and Asia where holding their activities was possible, and fans kept looking out for their videos and information on the web. This spring, after the expiration of the contract between the three and Avex, they held their concert at Tokyo Dome which drew as many as 150,000 people in total during three days of concert.
This time, 45,000 people flooded to the solo concert [of Jejung] for three days.
A popularity phenomenon that had an explosive increase due to a sense of starvation is called hunger marketing. JYJ’s popularity at present is being boosted by a sense of fans’ starvation.
