As part of JYJ’s promotional activities as 2014 Incheon Asian Games Ambassadors, they will be attending road shows in Singapore, Vietnam and Guangzhou.
(T/N: I merely translated what the article says. However, according to announcement by CJES, JYJ will not attend the road show in Singapore. Please refer to the first bullet point at the bottom, it says JYJ will greet with a “conference video interview”. The rest of the bullet points indicated “참석 = attend”. Don’t want to give false hopes to fans in Singapore so please take note of this clarification. Thanks).
