T/N: “El Comercio” is the most important newspaper in Peru.
JYJ, a young popular K-pop band, sold out half of their concert tickets in just half hour.
Probably, when reading the title of this article, you’re unaware of these two things: who is JYJ and what is this genre called K-pop that they are representing. They’re not heard on local radios or seen on networks like MTV and they don’t have albums for sale in Peru. [Despite all this] Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu, three South Koreans with almost unpronounceable names just set a record in our country. In just 30 minutes, thousands of fans purchased half the tickets to their show that will be held at the esplanade in Monumental Stadium on March 11th. Read More →

K-Pop is truly spreading across the globe! In addition to BEAST‘s 21-city tour, JYJ recently confirmed that they would be holding concerts in South America - more specifically, Chile and Peru.
This is quite a milestone for not only K-Pop and its fans, but also for the countries that are being visited by the Korean wave. Local media outlets in Chile and Peru have picked upon the news and have been reporting it as top entertainment news since the concerts’ confirmations.
Chilean TV channel “La Tacera” among others introduced the concert by running headlines like “The first Korean artists to hold concerts in South America.” They also included short introductions of JYJ, explaining that they had worked with Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins to develop their global careers.
Hello, this is C-JeS Entertainment.
We are announcing the confirmation of JYJ’s South America Tour in March, 2012.
The concerts will be held on:
March 9th Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile
March 11th Explanada Sur del Estadio Monumental (Explanada Sur inside Estadio Monumemntal) in Lima, Peru.
JYJ shared about their love for their South American fans, “These are countries that are really far away with over 30 hours of flight time. After we worked with Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins and released the English album in 2010, fans in North America and South America increased rapidly. So even though we are far away, we always felt close to them.”
JYJ also talked about their determination, “Many South American fans came to our performances in North American cities we visited for our showcase of the World Wide Album in 2010, cities like LA and San Francisco we visited for World Wide Tour in 2011 and recent European Tour. South American fans have hoped for us to come visit them in South America for a long time. We are happy that we can keep the promise with our fans and will prepare for the perfect performance that will be suitable for Latin America’s passion.”
We’ve posted an article confirming JYJ’s South American tour cities and dates. Allkpop published another article that has quotes that were not in our article so it’s worth a read.
JYJ has announced that they’ll soon be performing in South America!
On January 4th, C-Jes Entertainment revealed, “JYJ’s South American tour has been confirmed. JYJ’s solo concert will be held on March 9th in Chile followed by March 11th in Peru.”
The March 9th concert will be held in Santiago, Chile at the Teatro Caupolican, while the March 11th show will be held in Lima, Peru at the Explanada Sur del Estadio Monumental.
The South American promotion agency for JYJ remarked, “The popularity of JYJ in South America is in a different class altogether from the craze for K-Pop. Their popularity exceeds that of domestic artists as well as American pop artists, and they have the passionate support of teens as well as those in their 20′s.”
The JYJ members stated, “The countries are very far with flight times over 30 hours. After releasing an English album in 2010 with Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins, the amount of fans in the Americas have grown rapidly. Thus, although the [countries] are so far away, they have always felt familiar [to us].” Read More →
