FAN ACCOUNT 3:
When it was announced that JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong would have a November 3 fan meeting, I took it as a sign that I should finally attend and support him. It’s a long weekend for us Filipinos so the timing was perfect.
There were three of us who took the PAL flight to Jakarta on All Saints’ Day. We were very excited, even prepared fan gifts representing our country, the Philippines.
We safely arrived in Jakarta around midnight. Took airport shuttle to Aston Marina that became our temporary crib.
On the day of the fan meet, we took a cab going to MEIS (the venue). At the lobby, there were booths for fan gifts, tickets and another for official merchandise. RockJJ and Maze (dedicated fan groups) provided fans with banners, glow sticks and wristbands for free. There were also vendors outside selling unofficial JYJ items.
We forgot to eat lunch due to excitement. So while we had time to hang out, I had a burger and soda. But I can’t even taste anything anymore due to overwhelming emotion that I’ll finally see Jaejoong in person. I took a dose of Biogesic just in case. Hehe.
Once we were inside, we were ushered to our seats. And the moment Jaejoong appeared on stage, he took our breath away. He may look sick but his radiance remained unrivaled. He’s the definition of a shining star. Read More →

Q : How do you feel when you came to Indonesia for the first time ?
Kim Jaejoong : A member of JYJ some time ago had a concert and meeting, I heard that Indonesia was very good so i also wanted to came here. Jakarta is a great city. The atmosphere really similar with Seoul so i felt familiar.
This is my first time for visit Indonesia, but thank you for accepting me very well. Although yesterday many of fans who came to greet me in Airport but because of a security reason, i can’t greet them (the fans). I want to gift a happy time at a fanmeeting !.
Q : What exactly are you doing in Hongkong last week ? we heard about the making of the MV, is that true ?
Kim Jaejoong : Yes, it became my junior first debut who really talented, Baek Seung Hun. In the title song “Until the Sun Rises” i wrote the lyrics and starred the music video in Hongkong. In order to Seung hun to achieve his dream, i wanted to help him as much as i can.
It wasn’t a beautiful woman nor the most cheerful and supportive fans of JYJ Jaejoong that took his heart away during his first fanmeeting last weekend (3/11) in Jakarta, Indonesia. So who really stole his heart away?
With the rare close encounter opportunity as a surprise, thousands of fans were even more excited and overwhelmed, racking their brains on what to say or do in front of the ‘Ice Prince’. In their attempt to attract attention, fans were whispering in his ears and sneaky hands were sighted during the photo-taking session though instructions were clearly; no touching. Sadly none of it worked as the ‘Ice Prince’ gave equal attention to every fan in the very brief moment they each had.
However, one fan succeeded not only in attracting his attention, but making him cross the boundaries of no physical contact by just simply being herself. The two adorable children were sitting quietly next to his seat while waiting for his arrival, a stark difference to the many fans clamoring over the man. Read More →
FAN ACCOUNT 1:
Note: I wrote the account already immediately after the FM but needed to change it because at this point I knew.. that the stories of what happened, tweet translation of what he has said, and all the important gist of the FM has been made available.. So I’d take this chance to make this entry a FanDiary than a FanAccount.. Finally, I gave up the grammar check LOLL it’ll take me forever..
