[NEWS] 111010 High demand for JYJ tickets in Berlin causes server to crash

JYJ is already making headlines for their success in Europe.

According to C-Jes, the trio’s upcoming concert in Barcelona, Spain sold out 80% of its tickets within three days — surprising the parties involved in the concert organization. In addition, for their Berlin concert, there was a case where the ticket site’s server crashed due to an overwhelming amount of people trying to purchase tickets at the same time.

A source involved stated, “This situation is even more surprising because this is just an individual concert rather than a concert held by a major entertainment company… We were once again able to experience firsthand the popularity of K-Pop in Europe, and the high level of anticipation for JYJ.”

JYJ stated, “This is our first Europe tour, so initially, there were a few points that we were a little afraid about. We thank you for your high level of interest and we will prepare a spectacular performance.” They continued, “Not too long ago, the Spanish ambassador for Korea thanked us for the concert in Spain and encouraged us; now we’re hearing that our ticket sales are going well too. We’re so excited for the concerts with our European fans.”

JYJ has also been invited to the Spain Manga Festival, which reportedly draws in 60,000 people each year.

The boys’ success has also been documented in Japan, where they’ll be holding concerts on October 15th and 16th. All 60,000 tickets for the events have been sold out.

Congratulations, JYJ!

[NEWS] 111009 JYJ’s “In Heaven” is still blocked from music programs

Fans had high hopes for “In Heaven“, but it seems the restrictions imposed on JYJ are still going strong, as the trio recently revealed that their album still can’t be performed on air (despite charting at the top for four weeks in a row now).

Representatives of JYJ revealed, “We have never received an offer to perform on music programs. Even if we bring the album with us to meet them, they never call back. The album is creating waves on the Hanteo chart right now but it’s not being reflected onto the music program charts, which we find difficult to understand.”

They continued, “Music programs weren’t able to give a logical and fair reason as to why they were rejecting JYJ, but it seems they just simply don’t care anymore and are acting like they don’t notice what’s going on.”

Despite the cold treatment, the boys are going strong, selling out their European tour and being invited to foreign festivals left and right.

[TRANS] 111004 JYJ Are Crazy About ‘This’ These Days

The individual activities of JYJ’s members get a ’10 out of 10′.

Kim Jaejoong debuted as an actor through SBS’ Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’ while Kim Junsu starred in two musicals and became a hot topic for his cameo appearance and his participation in the OST of the popular drama ‘Scent of a Woman’. Park Yoochun has made his mark as an actor through ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and ‘Miss Ripley’.

Kim Jaejoong said, “What’s best is, ‘Let’s be good at one thing’, but I was able to take a shot at acting because a great opportunity came up and I’m thankful to have received a positive response,” and “I’m thinking of taking on acting again if the opportunity arises."

Kim Junsu said, “Thanks to my participation in the OST of the drama, I was fortunately given a cameo appearance. Though I did think for a moment that I’d like to try acting as I watched the other two become actors, I saw them staying up all night for days on end to complete their filming, and that thought vanished.” He bragged and said that soccer suits him better. He said, “I played in fifteen soccer matches in a month,” and “I didn’t have any celebrity friends, but I became friends with Kim Hyun Joong and B2ST’s Lee Gi Kwang and Yoon Du Jun through soccer.”

Since finishing his drama, Park Yoochun has been hooked on fishing. He said, “I was in Busan for a month in August and I had fun swimming and fishing,” and “There’s nothing better to pass time than fishing.” Park Yoochun plans to continue his acting career. Offers for movie and drama appearance are currently flooding in and he plans to choose his next production and appear in front of his fans in the near future.
