In 2011, most of the world’s news spread quickly across the globe thorough various Social Networking Sites.
Those who could not find an outlet to voice their opinions also utilized SNS to express their thoughts and at times, changed the world. These same social networking sites became a gateway of communication between JYJ and their fans.
The three JYJ members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu were once members of the greatest idol group, TVXQ under SM Entertainment but publicly revealed their unfair contracts and became independent.
The three members were once part of the wildly popular group, but suddenly became distant from their fans once creating JYJ. There really was no way for them to properly communicate with their fans.
They desperately needed to build a bridge in order to be able to reach their fans, and SNS became the obvious answer. After leaving TVXQ in July of 2009, JYJ publicly released two albums but it was not easy for the public to have access to their music or their performances.
Due to reasons unknown, the boys are unable to publicly perform on television programs or cable channels. Despite this, the boys sold over 320,000 copies of their two albums released in 2010 and 2011, proving that their fame knows no bounds and fans still highly support their career.
Pictures, which compare male idol stars’ appearances, were recently released and drew a lot of attention.
On January 3, an online community posted pictures with the caption, “Average appearance of male idol stars.” Each of the thirteen pictures represents each boy group’s appearance. A person, who uploaded the pictures, compounded the members’ faces of each group.
Pictures of Big Bang, 2PM, and FT Island look like the members of each group: Seungri, Jang Woo Young, and Lee Hong Ki.
People responded: “JYJ looks so handsome.” “This is why they are idol stars. The average appearances look handsome as well.” “The person who compounded thirteen members of Super Junior must have worked hard.”
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 →
