Korean Wave Stars JYJ and Han Hyejin to Participate in “Asian Dream Cup”
The Charity Foundation established by the Manchester United FC Soccer Player Park Jisung, JS Foundation, revealed that on the coming June 15 in the 1st Asian Dream Cup, JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) will participate as the artists who perform in the half time’s celebratory concert and the actress Han Hyejin will participate as the “festival lady.”
JYJ, which is navigating Asia and North America with its “JYJ World Tour 2011,” is famous as artists whose usual love for soccer is uncommon, to the degree that the member Kim Junsu is captain of FC MEN.
JYJ will not merely perform in the congratulatory concert during the half time but will also participate in the “Vietnam Male Youth Soccer Clinic” and will heighten the meaning of the participation in the Asian Dream Cup.
Also, Han Hyejin who visited the drama scene in a long while by appearing in the KBS 2TV drama “Thorn Tree” was selected as the “festival lady” of the Asian Dream Cup thanks to the popularity of the MBC drama “Jumong” which has led the Korean Wave fever in Vietnam. Han Hyejin will attend major events of the Asian Dream Cup and will act as the “face” of the Asian Dream Cup.
On the other hand, Asian Dream Cup, which already has finalized the participation of abroad-oriented stars such as Patrice Evra, Lee Youngpyo, Jung Joguk, Lee Chungyoung, and Jung Daesae, is also smoothly casting players of China and Japan and so soon plans to announce the additional entries.
Asian Dream Cup, which will be an extensive soccer festival that rounds up not merely Korea and Vietnam but the whole of Asia, will be held on June 15 in Vietnam’s Thong Nhat Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City.
