The JYJ Lovers in the Philippines held an event last Sunday, January 19, 2014 at the Drake Room of Discovery Suites in Ortigas to celebrate Kim Jaejoong’s 29th birthday. An announcement was made about a week and a half before the party and all the slots were immediately filled prompting us to request the venue to accommodate more guests.
On the day of the party, fans came early for registration. We were still setting up the venue with tarpaulin, posters, pictures, balloons, cake table, props, and prizes when attendees started arriving. Early birds were so eager to help us out. It was a fangirling, fandom bonding moment.
The program started with a prayer for Jaejoong’s good health and continued success. The afternoon was filled with fun and laughter as the attendees actively participated in the JAE-themed games prepared by the admins. The first game that took place was caled “JAEconda Match”. Chosen contestants were given the task to move the match box using eggplants tied to their waists by yarns. The first team that accomplished the task were declared winners. The next game was called “Pass the JAE Message” where participants were asked to pass the message from the lead by using gestures. The messages were actually number significant to Jaejoong – like his age and birthdate. The last game was called “Trip to J-Holic”, more like the usual Trip to Jerusalem game, with a twist. The participants were asked to dance and move like Jaejoong while his songs were playing, the admins moved the chairs around so that the contestants will also have the task of locating these seats. The winners were glad to have received lots of prizes. Raffle was conducted at intervals were prizes like TM Clear files, Jaejoong Poster, Chibi socks, JJ Tarpaulins and major prizes like MINE and WWW Albums were given away.
We had group photos taken to greet Kim Jaejoong. Snacks were provided while the song selection from the Kim Jaejoong Your, My & Mine 2013 Mini Concert & Fan Meeting DVD was being played on screen. After some refreshments, we had a greeting portion wherein each attendee introduced herself and narrated to us how they became a Jaejoong/JYJ fan. It was interesting and fun to listen especially how families and friends bonded simply because of JYJ fandom.
The dress code for the event was ‘Kim Jaejoong’ as requested by the celebrant himself for his concerts in Nagoya and Seoul. We’ve chosen 3 guests who dressed up for the occasion and the winner who happened to be the youngest attendee was voted as best in costume. She got a Nii shirt similar to what JJ has worn. So cute!
It was delightful afternoon and absolutely all about Jaejoong. Everyone took photos of the cake table and props. We sang the Happy Birthday song in Korean, blew the candles before cutting and sharing the photocake for dessert. Each one received a J Party cupcake that had a pull out charm and JJ quote. Souvenir key chains were also given away as well as hard copy of 3R photos of THE handsome and sexy Jaejoong.
We collected fan letters and fan gifts to be brought to Seoul by the admins of “JYJ Lovers in the Philippines” when they attend Jaejoong’s birthday concert on the 26th of January. We’re so grateful to everyone who joined this event.
Continue supporting Jaejoong/JYJ and JYJ Lovers in the Philippines. Fans make everything DAE-TO-THE-BAK!!!

WOW… Amazing fans …. I wish we have JJ celebration at Atlanta like this … 🙂
that was amazing !
one sad part of being at the other end of the country, I’m missing a lot of fun.
we’re separated by islands, seas, etc, lol! even you local dialect talking with sis @jyj1214 i can hardly understand and speak, are we in diversity? hahaha!!! 😀 JYJPH.ORG Admins & participants are DAEBAK!!! we need this sort of bonding, relating, scrolling up & down even here in JYJ3 and TL to keep Jae/JYJ love burning, lol! but when it comes to music lately, my ears long for Jae’s voice, he never misses my want for any genre now that he is singing everything to my delight^^!! 😀
Yes, our country is so small but because we’re separated by seas, it’s too hard to travel to Manila. Since we have a new airport, I have to travel one hour plus by car to the airport, one hour 25 min by plane to Mla, another hours spent for heavy traffic to arrive to my destination, not counting how much pesos spent and exhaustion just by travelling BUT IF Jaejoong or JYJ comes, I’ll surely be there, lol
And speaking of dialect, my daughter lowest grade is Filipino language, she can hardly speak our national language, she uses our local dialect or English so I encourage her to watch our teleserye but big no, she rather watch Kdrama 😉 .
Next time @ kris we’ll fly from Mindanao to Luzon 🙂
When JJ/JYJ comes, let’s fly to Manila 🙂 , hope they will come before enlistment.
Good job guys! Wow! Seriously!!!
Wow! Solid JYJ Philippines. I’m not there but I’m proud of you sisters. I hope I can join in next time. Thank you so much for doing this to our JYJ.
WOW awesome JYJ Philippines you girls are daebak & pretty~~ ^^
