The Korean idol group JYJ has held their concert for the first time in 小巨蛋 Dome. The hard-core fans formed a “red ocean” by holding the red light sticks in their hands. Their appeal was extremely shocking—after the news of the Taiwan concert was relayed on April Fools’ Day, the tickets were on sale for only 15 days, but about 90% of them sold, and therefore the concert, which was formed of 19 songs, easily pulled in 20,000,000 Taiwan Dollars (approximately 700,000 USD). JYJ, following the culture of the place, said “hello” and asked the well-being of the fans by saying “your parents are all well, right?” in excellent Chinese and were enthusiastically received.
Jaejoong Directed the Stage
JYJ, after the lawsuit with the former agency SM Entertainment, has held the “JYJ World Tour Concert in 2011” and is touring. In the showcase that was held in Taiwan at the end of last year, JYJ had said that soon they would hold a performance in Taiwan. They kept this promise in 6 months and pulled out the acclamation of about 10,000 fans. Kim Jaejoong took charge of directing and decided on the theme of the concert to be “Creative Challenge,” and transported by air the lift stage and 7 LED’s (that were) almost 10,000,000 Taiwan Dollars (approximately 350,000 USD). Director Kim came early to Taiwan and participated in the production meeting of the concert in the rehearsal on the 19th, and instructed that the T-shaped stage be made bigger. By expanding the stage from a small T to a big T, Jaejoong displayed his sensitivity in showing to the fans more dance movements and heightening the interaction between JYJ and the fans.
