110405 JYJ’s Jaejoong invited to visit the King of Thailand

On March 23rd, JYJ’Jaejoong visited the Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok, where he prayed for the good health of Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King of Thailand.

The visit was made by chance, as Jaejoong had noticed a yellow bracelet that his fans were wearing during his stay in Thailand. It was only then that he learned that the king was lying in a sickbed, and that the yellow bracelets symbolized national unity, and more recently, the recovery of the king’s health.

After learning of his visit, reporters was asked Jaejoong for further details after JYJ’s concert on April 3rd. Jaejoong explained, “I wanted to repay the love our fans had given us by paying our respects to someone they love and respect as well. Although I wasn’t able to meet him in person, I hope that he recovers his health as soon as possible.”

His thoughtful action has been spotlighted in Thailand, and the star is being praised for acting as a cultural envoy, and not just a visiting singer.

According to a Thai tourism representative, Jaejoong’s visit is being regarded as that of a ’state guest’. Even if one wishes to visit the king, permission must first be granted from the royal family; Jaejoong was cordially welcomed.

Accepting the invitation, Jaejoong found that he lacked a proper suit since he was in Thailand for a concert. After learning of his predicament, the royal family went as far as to clear out one floor of an entire shopping mall so that he could shop in peace. On April 2nd, the royal family personally attended JYJ’s concert and expressed their gratitude for his visit.

Cautiously, Jaejoong stated, “I did what I had to do.”

110404 JYJ’s Jaejoong makes his directing debut during Thailand’s “JYJ World Tour Concert”

On April 2nd and 3rd, JYJ’s Jaejoong made his debut as a director through the trio’s “JYJ World Tour Concert” in Bangkok, Thailand.

Not only did he direct the stage, but the sound and lighting systems as well. He even went as far as to head off to Thailand two weeks before the conert was to take place in order to immerse himself into theenvironment and finalize preparations.

Fellow member Junsu commented, “We began calling him ‘Director Kim.’ That’s how big his role was in the concert.”

In a separate interview with Sports Chosun, Jaejoong was asked to explain his thoughts on finally making his debut as a director. He replied, “I learned a lot through this experience. Based on the size alone, I’m not sure if it’s bigger than the concerts we held as rookies, but I did rehearse a lot.”

When asked how he became a director, “I’ve always had a lot of interest in directing. A lot of different directors have worked for our concerts, but there weren’t a lot that truly knew the feelings of a singer. It was my dream to create a concert that took both the singer and the director’s perspective into one.”

Jaejoong was also asked to name an important aspect of the concert, “Over 80% of the concert was prepared directly by the members themselves. We truly tried hard to create a concert that showed who we were through our world tour. It will definitely be a stage where the concentration is put on the songs.”

To conclude, Jaejoong revealed his feelings on the past eight months, “It was very difficult. If before, all we did was put up a spoon on top of an already set up dinner table, we had to create that dinner table this time.  But I think that even if it gets more difficult from here on out, I won’t mind at all.”

110404 JYJ kicks off their “JYJ World Tour Concert” in Thailand

JYJ standing before their 22,000 audience at their two-day concert in Thailand.

On April 2nd and 3rd, JYJ finally kicked off their world tour in Bangkok, Thailand at the Impact Arena. The “JYJ World Tour Concert“ managed to bring in 22,000 fans, proving the group’s worth as Hallyu stars.

As it is JYJ’s first solo concert away from SM Entertainment and their brand as ‘TVXQ‘, industry representatives from both Korea and overseas kept close tabs on the event.

The members never forgot to thank their fans throughout their concert for not forgetting them, and for taking time out of their lives to attend their concert.  Through an impressive laser show, the trio emerged on the stage with “Empty“, and went on to perform “IDS“, “Nine“, and “Pierrot.”

The Thailand fans were also the first to be able to hear the debut live performance of “Untitled Song Part 1“, a track from their latest best seller, “JYJ Music Essay“.

The members also revealed four tracks that they had written and composed, which included “Get Out“, “In Heaven“, “Boy’s Letter“, and “You Are“.

1. Boy’s Letter – lyrics by Jaejoong

2. You Are – lyrics by Junsu

3. Get Out – lyrics by Jaejoong & Yuchun; composition by Jaejoong

4. In Heaven – lyrics & composition by Jaejoong

Yoochun stated, “I feel proud that we’ve collected enough songs to hold a concert.  As it is a world tour, we wanted to leave a stronger impression than that of our showcase last fall. As much as we are satisfied with the concert, it was also a time for us to turn back and reflect on what we lacked.”

Junsu added, “I’m thankful towards Jaejoong hyung for directing it.  Even though we didn’t have much time to prepare, he really did his best and never once have I ever felt so comfortable at a concert.”

Their world tour will go on to Taiwan on the 23rd and Beijing on May 7th; it’ll then migrate to four cities in North America , and end in Korea on June 11th and 12th.
