JYJ‘s concert in Tokyo Dome receives appreciations.
The head of the largest concert production agency in Japan which is Kyodo Yokohama, revealed his thoughts on the trio’s recent show in Tokyo Dome. He said, “The dances are even more splendid and impressive than the moves of the King of Pop.”
The president also stated, “We were able to see why JYJ is JYJ. It′s the concert everyone has been waiting for. You can compare it to a concert by Michael Jackson, and the dances are even more splendid and impressive” revealing his amazement about the concert. He then added, “Since [JYJ] won its lawsuit [against Avex], they′re drawing more expectations toward their future promotions in Japan. I′m also looking forward to what kind of concert it will put on for its fans.”
Also, a representative from their label, C-JeS Entertainment, revealed, “All 150,000 seats for the three days of JYJ′s Tokyo Dome concert were sold out. Over 300,000 people had to compete for tickets. Though the group hadn′t been able to promote at all in Japan for three years since Avex cancelled its contract with the group in 2010, the members sharpened their skills not only as singers but also as actors during that time. They even succeeded in gaining a solid fanbase, successfully touring through Europe and South America as the first Korean singers to do so.”
It was said that posters of Yoochun‘s “Rooftop Prince” and Jaejoong‘s “Dr. Jin” and “The Jackal is Coming” were seen in places near the concert venue, this just proves that JYJ’s popularity remained during their hiatus.
With this, a representative from Japan’s largest advertiser explained, “That all three of JYJ′s concerts sold out despite the fact that they′re taking place on weekdays proves that the group harnesses great power as an artist. JYJ is attractive as a musician group, but it also appeals to the heart.”
The trio’s Tokyo Dome concert started last April 2nd and will end on April 4th. It was also reported that the performances on the last day will be aired live in 113 theaters across Japan.
