2014. I was on Yeongdong-daero [street] in front of KEPCO amid a crowd of more than 40,000 people gathering for <Gangnam K-POP Festival with JYJ> that adorned Gangnam Fashion Festival’s finale. It was a great concert where a lot of residents with their families, foreign tourists and fanclub members mingled together, and were able to enjoy the quintessence of Republic of Korea’s K-POP. It had been even an unusual sight created, where thousands of Hallyu fans were on the sidewalks in front of KEPCO for 2 days and waiting for the concert to take place; to watch JYJ’s solo concert today. A lot of oveseas Hallyu fans had arrived to watch Hallyu star JYJ, including Chinese yorkers who searched for them[JYJ] in Gangnam for the long weekend of the China’s National Day. Singers JYJ had volunteered for the arts without an appearance fee for today’s concert and with the concert, donated to the Gangnam Welfare Foundation in the total full amount of the proceeds from the sales of their concert souvenirs and other items; and before the concert, they had helped deliver 6,500kg(14,000,000 won) of rice for the underprivileged in Gangnam-gu.
