Raising expectations for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, JYJ successfully completed a road show in Hanoi, Vietnam.
On October 24, C-JeS Entertainment stated, “JYJ participated in the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Road Show and Showcase events. The members sang the Games theme song, Only One.”
The PR Road Show and Showcase that introduces the 2014 Incheon Asian Games took place on October 23 at the Vietnam National Convention Center in Hanoi. As this was JYJ’s first visit to Hanoi, the media and 3,400 fans greeted the singers with much passion.
“Hanoi is in the bidding for the 2019 Asian Games. Hearing that JYJ will be appearing in the Road Show, they’ve been receiving a big response,” said the organizing committee for the Asian Games. “Using the theme song for the Asian Games, Vietnamese fans were a great help by promoting the song and event by performing flashmobs. Despite the fact that JYJ arrived at the airport at a late hour on October 23, hundreds of fans still greeted the group.”
Kim Young Soo, the chairman of the organizing committee said, “We’re hoping to attract 200,000 people during the game times in 2014. We’re receiving a lot of strength in all the promotions happening before JYJ’s Road show. With the catchphrase ‘Make Asia Dance,’ the theme song has been very popular with easy to sing lyrics. JYJ will also be helping out when they head to Guangzhou for another Road Show.”
During the press conference in Vietnam, JYJ stated, “We want help in supporting the harmony in Asia. The 2014 Incheon Asian Games will be the uniting factor that will overcome race, culture and language.”
Meanwhile, JYJ is currently gearing up for solo promotions. Kim Jae Joong will release his first official album on October 29 and begin his Asia tour. Park Yoo Chun will focus on his new movie, Sea Fog, while Kim Junsu will meet audience members through his upcoming December musical December: The Song that Never Ends.
