[NEWS] 111104 A chicken gets lovestruck by JYJ’s Jaejoong

We know there’s a ton of JYJ fans out there, but this particular individual takes the cake for being one of the cutest we’ve seen in a while.

An series of photos have gone viral in Korea after they were uploaded onto a community forum under the title, “Part-time Chicken Shop worker is a JYJ fan“.

A part-time worker from a chicken shop is seen wearing their mascot costume in front of a cosmetics store, where a set of life-size JYJ cutouts were positioned for promotion. The chicken worker looks a little depressed, even in a state of static nostalgia — it’s almost as if they were longing to see someone.

The netizen who created the post explained, “I was looking outside the window and saw a random part time worker wearing a chicken costume. There were cut-outs of JYJ’s Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu outside of the cosmetic store. The chicken worker took a long look at Jaejoong’s picture in particular. The chicken had a leaflet in [his or her] left hand and caressed Jaejoong’s cut out. I was taking pictures right beside [him or her], but they didn’t even notice.”

Anyone feeling sorry for the chicken?

[NEWS] 111104 JYJ targeting Europe – Why it's praiseworthy?

“We’re hungry to show you what a real World Tour is!”

Group JYJ is the first singer of Republic of Korea who succeeded a solo concert in Spain. On the 29th Oct (local time) JYJ had a brilliant concert at Poble Espanyol, Barcelona, in front of 3000 people which didn’t include only Spanish fans but also other European fans from France, Netherlands, Switzerland, etc.

This concert was indeed a challenge. Although among domestic netizens, there were different opinions regarding the number of audience, the meaning and value of JYJ’s challenge are not going to fade. It was hard to find a reputable promoter for a concert of Korean artist. This is reality. For this concert, JYJ’s agency C-Jes Entertainment has directly worked on it from A to Z and has had to overcome several obstacles.

Europe is like a wasteland. For a Korean artist to hold a solo concert in Spain, it was full of burdens and problems that general public couldn’t imagine of. Moreover, it wasn’t a concert planned with participation of various artists from a large company but a fruit achieved by just one team. Therefore, the challenge is praiseworthy enough itself and we can’t help praising its meaning.

If we must compare numerically, the number of attendees was of course humble. They are JYJ who could mobilize tens of thousands of audience if the concert was held in Korea or Japan. Just look at the concert in Japan which was held before European tour, they sang in front of 40,000 spectators per day, so 80,000 in total. But in the strange land of Spain, they stood in front of thousands of spectators. Even so, JYJ has brought off a more elated stage than ever. The press that has directly attended the concert and the officials agreed that “Although they have stood in front of tens of thousands of fans just a few days ago… they really tried their best, without low-spiritedness or fear.”

The more praiseworthy thing is their ultimate goal to break through into Europe.

Representative of C-Jes Entertainment, Mr. Baek Changjoo had a meet up with Osen in Spain. He described JYJ’s ultimate goal to become World Star, “Our final goal is to achieve a real world tour. Even in Europe, large companies have brought large-scale concerts to Paris (France), London (UK), etc. But JYJ is facing a new challenge by starting a solo concert in Spain and Germany, countries where the embers of K-pop were just about to fire. Our dream is to eventually hold a real meaningful world tour encompassing all Asia, America and Europe. Through this European tour, we want to verify our potential and to make this an opportunity to introduce K-pop more to Europeans. I think a real world tour is clearly possible if we can make it in South America too after this.”

He also added with firm determination, “If a foreign artist can mobilize 10,000 spectators for a solo concert, it could be called great success. We aim to hold a world tour including Europe once a year, every time we release an album and to do a showcase in Europe in the future.”
