Please European JYJ fans~ Promote! Promote! Promote!
The American tours were very poorly promoted – virtually no visibility. Even the commercials for the tour – I only saw it twice and that was late at night, on an Asian channel, the very day before the concert. And did you know? One of the arenas had a contest for JYJ tix but no fans knew about it??? What kind of promotion is this?!
Fans, not just in Europe, let’s get together and promote on the internet. Spread it on your FB and twitters.
Lets get a sold out show for JYJ~
yeah, good idea. I am posting this on my facebook and telling my friends to post this as well. ^^
I wanna go!! Lucky spanish fans T__T
You know pay it forward? This could be “PASS THE INFORMATION FORWARD!”
European fans—-please REPRESENT!
I hear that many of you are waiting for the German concert even though its a smaller venue (which means that your chances for a closer-view ticket will be less compared to the much larger Spanish one, peeps!) Don’t know about you but if I’m going to spend money to see JYJ live after being a fan forever, then if it is at all affordable I want to get the best, most up-close seating possible, darn it!
Also remember that 30 Korean media will be attending EXCLUSIVELY at this Spanish concert to cover it and also media from Taiwan, China, Japan and Francce. Considering that JYJ has NO music promotion opportunities in Korea and Japan at all for the year and a half, this is a golden promotion/publicity opportunity that simply cannot be overlooked. The fact that International media will also be covering it is a tremendous bonus since it lends true legitimacy to JYJ’s global branding.
However, think of how poorly it will reflect on JYJ’s reputation if the Spanish venue is not filled and even worse yet, how it may make the boys feel after they finally agree to hold an European concert.
European fans—-Please show your love at BOTH concerts. Fighting!
Actually smaller venue also means that the “further” from the venue is to closer than if in a bigger venue 😉 But that’s not the point: for many countries going to Berlin is much more convenient and also cheaper than going to Spain.
You can’t quite expect people to choose right away a less convenient solution without trying a more convenient first.
I know that what you say makes perfect sense, we all hope that in the end both concerts will be sold out. But at the same time there’s also money and time constraints that need to be taken into account, and trying to make people feel guilty won’t change anything to their money and time constraints. What we need is more promotion, not making people feel guilty about things they may not be able to change.
Please stop this. You make it sound like Spain is on the other side of the road but it’s not… It’s like saying “mom, I’m going over to my penpal in Vietnam, I’ll be back for dinner, bye”. It’s not working that way. Don’t brick me but I think the boys made a mistake here, they should have the smaller venue in Spain and the bigger one in Berlin because it’s in the center of Europe and easier to travel to. Please don’t make people feel guilty.
To both @vik720 and @European fans of JYJ (@JYJinEurope)
I think you misunderstood my meanings and intents, Perhaps I also failed to make myself clearer and if that is so, my sincere apologies for the poor choice of words. Let me clarify (which I didn’t because I feared it was going to be TL:DR as shown below):—-
it is certainly NOT to “guilt” people into going to the Spain venue OVER the German venue. Of course its logical for fans to choose the venue of greater convenience (expense, distance, lodgings etc). Believe me, I’ve been “there” in many a similar situations at various concerts in the past, both large & small venues, either a 15min bus-ride away vs 10hr plane trip w hotel lodgings.
HOWEVER, what I am trying to point out are some things (other than common basic factors of economics/time/distance etc) that maybe not everyone had considered which could also affect your ultimate concert experience. Depending on what is your criteria for such.
For instance, if all things being relatively equal here—-the size of the venue and the # of fans attending certainly will impact the type of tickets you may possibly end up with. Its simple math. And if that is a top priority for you personally (as it is for me) to secure the best/most close-up seating, your chances of achieving that will certainly be better (since there’d be less competition) at a larger venue that FOR WHATEVER REASON(s), has been rumored to be markedly less popular with potential ticket-buyers. As I don’t know the details other than that many E-fans are waiting for the smaller venue (which in THIS case, happened to be Germany), I never speculated on the reasons, esp since the most obvious would be those of convenience, expedience and cost. And yes, I do realize that “sometimes smaller venue also means that the “further” from the venue is to closer than if in a bigger venue” and when that happens, its certainly a nice treat which I appreciate.
BTW, I don’t know how the location of Germany or Spain ever became an issue w me because I’m sure I did not make any mention of either. Whichever “side” of Europe they are located, they are both cosmopolitan, strategically located with excellent infrastructure networks that communicate throughout the continent. No matter which, its natural you will find one or the other more convenient/expedient etc and that is the one you gravitate to. Certainly money & time constraints always matter. So no, I DON’T expect people to ignore those factors when making their choice of venues.
HOWEVER—(let me reiterate & elaborate the points I was trying to make)—- IF IT IS AFFORDABLE, IF ALL THINGS BEING RELATIVELY EQUAL AND IF YOUR DECISION COMES DOWN TO SIMPLE PREFERENCE RATHER THAN NEED—-I sincerely hope you don’t all decide on smaller venue B and TOTALLY discount or write off larger venue A completely YET. Success of securing advantageous ticketing is simply much easier to predict when you apply the basic law of supply and demand by comparing fan demand versus venue capacity. For me personally, great seating is PARAMOUNT to my own concert experiences and is key to how much I will enjoy/remember them. Bottom line: it depends on what YOUR concert priority or requirement is. I’m speaking from my own perspective of something that not everyone may care about because it may not impact their experiences but it just might for others like me. This latter group is who I’m addressing. So if you are able to secure your desired tickets at your venue of choosing, congratulations. However if there is a possibility of OTHERWISE happening (eg the rumor of more fans competing for fewer seats at a smaller venue), I’m hoping THOSE E-fans please don’t close off their minds about the other venue as an viable alternate option to increase their chance of success.
I mentioned the other news of media promotions since NOT everyone knew about them (at least quite a few folks in my TL didn’t when we chatted yesterday). So I wanted to emphasize its possible ramifications. In case you feel I’m trying to indiscriminately “guilt” all E-fans to attend the Spanish concert over the German concert for that mercenary reason (which is ludicrous since one attends a concert for the artists/music, not the news crews covering it) —let me once again reiterate with the preface of IF IT IS AFFORDABLE (within your budgeting), ALL THINGS BEING RELATIVELY EQUAL AND YOUR DECISION (choice of venue) COMES DOWN TO SIMPLE PREFERENCE RATHER THAN NEED——the media attendance is a factor that fans there should take note of since their presence could be both an important statement and an opportunity. Perhaps I’m also feeling a tad overly sensitive since for some US venues (eg NJ), some anti-fans used the unfilled seating as arguments against JYJ’s marketability. It further frustrated me when certain fans begged for US concerts with pleas of “‘please just come, I’ll fly to wherever the concert is” but when the venues were disclosed, THOSE very same fans admitted (some on my FB) that they simply decided not to go (NOT d/t impt things they can’t control that would be perfectly understandable, i.e. time/$$/difficult traveling distance/job constraints etc) but because they felt upset that the venues weren’t within their county or state. Guess I should’ve made it clearer that my comments about taking JYJ’s feelings/reputation into consideration are actually meant for those particular kind of fans.
The last thing I want is for other fans to feel pressured to attend where they don’t want to. Real story: My BFF (another JYJ fan) invited her 2 twin foster daughters to attend the JYJ concert in SJ for their sweet 16th birthday since we were going too. Unbeknown to us, 1 of them is a HM stan and the other had decided to “quit” DBSK altogether after the lawsuit. The 1st child went but bitched about everything including the front-center row 9 seats & flight experience thru out the concert. The 2nd child bailed @ the very last minute & was a no-show at the airport. We ended up giving her premium concert ticket away to a fan outside the theater who was unable to afford any ticket but came anyway hoping for a glimpse of JYJ arriving. SHE was an absolute delight and had the time of her life, thank god. Poor kid was overcome when they celebrated YC (her bias)’s birthday on stage with the cake and MM ears. Anyway, my friend and I learned a valuable lesson from this: Unwilling fan presence can be much much worse than having few fan presence. Needless to say, neither of us will ever dare to invite, let alone “guilt” anyone unwilling into attending a concert again.
As far as the wisdom of concert venue choices by JYJ in Europe—I will gladly defer that to you both since you’d be much more knowledgeable than I. But as I said, I hope European fans show them much love at BOTH venues (whichever one they finally go to) . You guys have waited even longer than American fans so its truly been a long time coming; I hope it is a memorable one for you all.
My apologies for the boring long read.
(Think I’ll stick to posting vids instead of comments since I’m such a fail at it. *Sigh*)
please anyone can help me. i don’t know why i can’t open the link. i can’t download it. i need to get that information since i’ll travel to barcelona for the concert alone.Tq
When you click on the link, it sends you on a Megaupload page.
To download the file you have to wait for 45 seconds (you can see the countdown on the right). When the countdown finish you can see a “Download Standard” button. Click on that and save the file on your computer.
I hope this can help you (my English isn’t too good)

Congrats to the European fans, the concert after 5 days.
