Group JYJ used relay tweets to promote world AIDS day.
As United Nations “UNAIDS” goodwill ambassadors, the JYJ members spread publicity for world AIDS day through their twitter.
Kim Jaejoong tweeted “Do you guys know we are UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassadors? Junsu, what special day is December 1st?” to which Kim Junsu responded “Don’t forget December 1st is World AIDS day”. Park Yoochun finished the relay of tweets by promoting the UNAIDS twitter and website. The members tweeted in english, attracting the attention of International fans.
The relay promotion of JYJ caused a hot reaction on twitter. Each of the members have more than 500,000 twitter followers from across the world who sent messages for world AIDS day in many languages.
In addition, there was a massive increase in traffic to the United Nations AIDS website immediately following the tweets—once again proving the global popularity of JYJ.
JYJ have said “We act as ambassadors to the United Nations on the topics of HIV and AIDS information, and most of our promotions are in order to get rid of the prejudices concerning AIDS so that people can receive better treatment. More focus on worldwide AIDS awareness is necessary.
The United Nations AIDS in Asia and the Pacific Office Manager Beth Magne stated “After JYJ were appointed UNAIDS goodwill ambassadors, there has been great progress made in promotions and they have been a huge help with the Twitter campaign, ‘Love Always’, whose followers have increased 3 fold, with over 40,000 fans across the world, because of JYJ.”
She further said “We were also a little startled at the tremendous reactions shown to AIDS, which is a topic that is normally difficult to talk about. We saw heavy traffic on Social Networking Sites where people were discussing this topic and for that we have to say thank you to JYJ”
On the other hand, JYJ have recently participated in an end of the year pictorial who’s proceeds go to under-privileged and low income children. They have also taken part in an African child sponsorship project through the Share Happiness foundation.

This shows JYJ’s power, they are indeed amazing…That’s why Korean Entertainment Industry should open their eyes to let these amazing boys perform coz they’re already BLIND enough to not let them perform till now…
JEJU promotional board muz be crying now… let me console them by saying… TOOOOOO BAD!!!!!!!!!! *bleh 😛
haha! chunnie definitely helped junsu to type those tweets! XDDD Junsu couldn’t have made up the entire sentence with his “OMG SUN!” XDDDD YEAY JYJ!
like always we used said that was JYJ power n charm ^^
I’m glad they are involved in this kind of things. They do have a lot of fans and unlike people like us, they can make a difference, at least amongst their fans. I really like that they are this kind of people and have this kind of mindset – makes me admire them even more 🙂 JYJ fighting!
Agreed, think we all love this side of them. Imagine if they are that breed of self-centered celebrities who only care about having a good time with their new found freedom n wealth..eww..
About the new ‘end of the year pictorial’, I wonder if that’s what they were doing in Hawaii? I love it that instead of their images being sold as a product to line the pockets of SoME fat cats, they are now using their own images to help the needy.
Thats the power and JYJ effect!!
But why do I feel that they are not the one who tweeted?.. Im not used to it..hehe.. *weird*
But their english is good and cute!! ^^♥
BOOYAH! JYJ Power!

Bravo, JYJ. Thank you for taking on hard causes; causes that the entire world are struggling to find solutions to. In a global world, where physical and virtual borders are becoming thinner, and where people are living more and more as global citizens, you are teaching your country that if they want to export their culture to the world, and if they want to be accepted on the global playground, they have to learn to play nice and respectfully with others; they have to understand the struggles that the world are facing in fighting for human rights, access to resources, education, eradicating poverty, racism, sexism….they also have to understand that in their thirst to spread the Hallyu Wave, their dirty clothes can’t be washed in private anymore, invariably the stains will be seen by others. And why so? Because people from other parts of the world are vocal about things they don’t feel they are right.
like always u are always daebaksama ^^
