Group JYJ (Kim Jae Joong, Park Yoo Chun, Kim Jun Su) is very popular in Japan.
On November 21, JYJ’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, said that over 80,000 people came to see the JYJ World Tour, which was held in Japan on October 15.
The special edition of JYJ’s album, In Heaven, which will be released at the end of November, ranked first in album sales ranking with its pre-orders. DVDs of their concert, which was held last weekend in Jamsil, sold out as soon as it went on sale on Amazon Japan.
A spokesperson for Tower Records says, “JYJ’s albums and DVDs always draw explosive pre-orders. It’s more surprising because JYJ hasn’t been fully active in Japan for the last 2 years.”
Japanese fans also love JYJ members’ individual activities.
KBS’s series Sungkyunkwan Scandal, in which Park Yoo Chun appeared, ranked first in DVD rental rankings. MBC’s series Miss Ripley and Kim Jae Joong’s series SBS’s Protect the Boss are also drawing a lot of attention prior to its air.
JYJ’s overseas marketing official says, “Lots of Japanese people love JYJ. I think it’s because JYJ’s musical talent keeps growing and their individual activities express their unique abilities.”
