Group JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) successfully completed its Asia Tour.
The “JYJ World Tour 2011” which began in April in Thailand and crossed onto Taiwan and landed in China showed off the unchanged abilities of JYJ to sing live to about ten thousand fans who packed the Saotuji Gymnasium of Beijing on the 7th and received their heated cheers.
This Asia Tour, which created a procession of sold-outs for all concerts and drew approximately 43,000 people in four stops, became a topic of conversation due to having Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins collaborate. Further, it showed a perfect stage of live performances comprised of the songs contained in JYJ’s World Wide album “The Beginning” and JYJ’s self-made songs.
If one were to find the meaning of the Asia Tour that has concluded with the Beijing concert, it is that JYJ has succeeded in catching two birds—JYJ has revealed that they are alive and well as Asia’s stars and simultaneously had Kim Jaejoong successfully debut as a concert director.
Ahead of the tour, Kim Jaejoong announced the directing concept of “Creative Challenge” and revealed his determination to make a stage of a high degree of completion based upon the experiences on concerts that he had gained as a singer.
He directed a stage over the past four concerts that communicated with the fans through an organized composition and through performance and styling that could show the color of the music unique to JYJ. Each country’s media also heavily featured JYJ’s popularity day after day.
JYJ, who has completed the Asia Tour successfully, revealed: “This World Tour was a new challenge of JYJ, and a stage on which expressed the stories we wanted to tell. After a long time we came to meet the fans of Asia through a regular concert and we are happy that we were able to show a varied range of music and we are thankful to the fans who sent us cheers that were unchanged in their passion.”
At the same time, JYJ will move to Los Angeles of the United States and begin preparing for the North America Tour. The North America Tour will start on the coming 20th in Vancouver, Canada and will be held in four cities– New Jersey on the 22nd, Los Angeles on the 27th, and San Jose on June 2nd.
