To regain vitality, the Let’s Take Heart, Japan! Take Heart, Irabai! Concert for Support of Revival was held on the 15th in the National Hitahi Seaside Park in Hitachinaka City was held. The three members of Korea’s popular male idol group JYJ performed in a large-scale stage and approximately 30,000 fans cheered.
On the massive stage set up in the large field of grass inside the park, the three wearing white outfits appeared and were enveloped in loud cheers. The fans who filled the venue held red fan lights or banners and sent their heated support.
The concert was hosted by an action committee that is made up of the businesses related to tourism inside the Hyun. JYJ and a dance team inside the Hyun will appear. It is two-days with the 16th also and it is planned to gather about 60,000 persons.
The venue sold the regional specialties of the Hyun and specialty booths for PR and such were set up and was bustling with many people.
