Yoochun’s Chinese fansite, Micky Baidu Bar, held fan parties on June 2nd in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing,
and Guangzhou to celebrate Yoochun’s birthday
News of the arrival of South Korean boyband JYJ prompted hundreds of fans to camp out on the streets recently to get closer to the trio. But this wasn’t in Seoul or even Tokyo: it was in Lima.
Having taken Asia by storm over the past decade with bubblegum hooks and dance moves infused with military precision, South Korea’s K-pop phenomenon continues to defy language barriers and find fans around the world. As South Korea continues to export its culture, K-pop’s polished fusion of influences ranging from hip-hop to dubstep is winning a growing number of passionate followers in Latin America.
JYJ has held sellout concerts there and a Colombian TV station is airing a K-pop talent show. Latin American fans have posted hundreds of videos on YouTube showing flash mobs emulating K-pop dance moves and urging their favourite stars to visit the continent, despite many not having officially released songs outside Asia.

A series of pictures of some of the Time Slip Dr. Jin cast making the same pose is catching the attention of fans.
On June 20, MBC released a series of still cuts from its currently airing television drama Time Slip Dr. Jin.
The pictures showed the drama’s main actors in between scenes.
Though wearing different clothes, shooting different scenes and despite the pictures being taken at different times, Park Min Young, Kim Jae Joong, Song Seung Hun and Lee Bum Soo all made the same pose- the stereotypical ‘V’ peace sign made with one hand.
We reported earlier that JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun was in Bali for vacation, but it turns out he was also working during his birthday, shooting some gorgeous photos with fashion magazine Elle.
Following the success of SBS’ Rooftop Prince, Park Yoo Chun flew to Bali to celebrate his birthday, take a vacation and participate in a photo shoot.
In the photos, Park Yoo Chun exuded manly charisma while also promoting the beauty of Bali.
