Although their size decreased, domestic and abroad fans’ interests have grown more.
The ‘fan exposition’ that makes headlines every year as a ‘large, great service’ for fans of group JYJ, will be held without fail this year again. JYJ is unfolding ‘2015 JYJ Membership Week’ at Seoul Art Musem in Buam-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul from August 17 to August 30. Members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yuchun, Kim Junsu are revealing various images of them under the title ‘Time…will have to keep going on’ in their fan exposition this time designed as a photo exhibition.
JYJ has been conducting the ‘Membership Week’ that gathers the diversified activities of group JYJ annually since 2012. It is viewed for free by fans and well-received as a space to interact with the group members.
Most of all, they have heightened the level of closeness by arranging a space where their fans can experience and participate in trying on their fashion and props, like their stage costumes and etc.; or make stickers.
Just this year, there was the situation where Kim Jaejoong enlisted in March 31, and Park Yuchun also has his enlistment ahead on August 27; their group size decreased somewhat. In turn, their fans might have disappeared from the space where they can personally experience and enjoy. But JYJ is expected to present a satisfactory attraction for fans, since they dramatically increased the hosting period to 2 weeks and ceased doing 3∼4 days. Anticipations are raising up over them sufficiently capturing fans’ attention; by displaying a lot of photos of the members and etc.
At JYJ’s ‘Membership Week’, JYJ has prospered with success with more than 4000 overseas fans from Japan visiting every year. They are recognized as an example of new fanservice. It looks like there will be a lot of oversea fans visiting even this year. Like year after year for JYJ, Park Yuchun and Kim Junsu will meet fans through a fanmeeting and sit down individually at Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul on August 25. In particular Park Yuchun will say his last thoughts before enlisting. Kim Jaejoong has planned to appease fans’ regrets by surprisingly releasing a letter and video that he had written before he enlisted, and more.
