Over 7,000 Japanese fans will come to Korea to see JYJ. This is the largest number of foreigners entering Korea for a single concert.
JYJ’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, says, “Over 7,000 Japanese fans will attend the ’2012 JYJ Membership Week,’ which will be held on June 28 for four days at SETEC. We planned to hold the event for JYJ Membership members to meet JYJ.”
The members can experience JYJ’s various charms through a 3-D media facade, trick art, and huge pavilions at the first Korean fan fair.
At the fan meeting, which will be held on June 30 and July 1, JYJ will talk together with their fans.
Around 25,000 people, including 15,000 Korean members and 7,024 Japanese members will come to the fair. They will take 116 airplanes from 14 airports in Japan to come to Korea. They have booked over 1,000 hotel rooms in Seoul, Incheon, and Suwon.
A spokesperson for the agency says, “Over 15,000 Japanese fans applied for the fan meeting but 7,024 people were selected randomly. There has never been an event for Hallyu star which drew as many Japanese fans as this. Thanks to JYJ, the event has set a historical record in tourism.”
Baek Chang Joo, the president of the agency, says, “This event will make Korean fans happy because the group has been performing abroad. Since we are going to bear the entire expense, the event received an explosive response. We are ready to give JYJ and their fans several special days together.”
JYJ recently shot a video and pictures for the event.
The group says, “We are excited to meet our fans and thank them for supporting us. We really enjoyed shooting and we hope that our fans can feel this happiness together.”
