Fans go wild for JYJ.
The k-pop band wowed fans with songs from their new album “Just Us” at a showcase in Seoul. More than 6,000 people gathered for the performance, which was just as exciting for the band.
SOUNDBITE: Park Yu-Chun, JYJ, saying (Korean): “I was excited and thrilled as three of us haven’t worked together in a long time. The feelings are still ongoing. I’m happy to do the concerts together. And I think it is very meaningful that we released the new album as JYJ in a long time.”
The members of JYJ originally belonged to boy band TVXQ before the group split citing unfair working conditions. The three members reformed under the new name of JYJ in 2010 [with a new management team]. The guys will kick off their tour of Asia in Seoul on August 9, followed by concerts in Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, and Taiwan.
