The director from previous concert member Kim Jaejoong will be in charge once in again in this concert production, and is expected to bring back the ‘Creative Challenge’ concept during their Bangkok concert to Taiwan.
‘Creative Challenge’ concept has successfully united all audiences in harmony in last Bangkok concert, while the charm of Kim Jaejoong as the group’s stage director for world tour concert in Asia continent also receive great favor from public.
JYJ said, “Since it’s been so long for us to meet our Asian fans, thus we try our best to prepare for this performance. After we wrap up the concert in Beijing, China on May 7th, we will get ready thoroughly for our U.S tour.”
