Thousands of excited fans stormed their way into Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul on Tuesday. The lucky fans, who were selected through random drawings, turned up for the crowning event of the group’s annual “Membership Week” to bid Park Yoo-chun a farewell for his enlistment Thursday. The event, which had been scheduled for two hours, went overtime by an extra two hours.
Sporting an “Inside Out” theme from the homonymous animated film, the event kicked off with the members singing the soundtrack of the film with modified lyrics. The members then walked up to the center of the stage and touched the magic balls made of “core memories” through which the group’s most memorable memories were screened on the supersized onstage screens. The memories, which reflected fans’ comments on the group’s Facebook page, included the times the versatile members won awards as well as when they topped local music charts. Park Yoo-chun burst into laughter when an old cringe-worthy ad was projected on the screen.
Along with special guest emcee Boom, the duo left fans in stitches while playing games including a hilarious “palm-pushing game” and “Pepero game,” where the two ate a stick cookie from opposing ends to make it as tiny as possible. As part of the penalty for the loser, the duo respectively tried playing a man who finally confesses his love, and a man who drops tears in the agony of parting. Park impressed fans as he shed tears in a split second.
Some of the fans were moved to tears when the two sang their hit tracks together.
Penzel Q Thank you
JS: Watching this CM again.. I can even imagine it.
MC: it became quite a topic (to talk about), but in actuality I believe, firstly you see the basis (of the CM) that this CM is like this. What did you think about it?
JS: but this CM. I hadn’t appeared in a television show even once, it was really after a long time I had showed my face in a television show
YC: with this CM that is.
JS: right, right, right.
MC: with this CM, after a long time..
JS: I showed it and..
YC: Penzel Q thank you!
JS: at that time, I was really, half asleep
MC: you were half asleep?
JS: I was half asleep and the script (of the CM), I hadn’t really seen it properly.
MC: hadn’t seen it and were half asleep.
JS: but then Jaejoong went in first to shoot (his part) and then (came) with many feelings of uneasiness and kept on saying that it was tough and that (YC: it was difficult) it was difficult to even say those lines form his mouth and then i showed him my script. He saw it and i said ‘for me, it’s this’. He said ‘work hard’ (Ganbatte). He said that for me, it was comparably better then.
MC: oh is that really so? What about Yoochun? Do you remember about this time’s shooting?
YC: I clearly, I clearly remember the time of this CM’s shooting. Jaejoong was the first to go shoot, next up was me and then Junsu was the last to shoot. In the middle of my shoot, the staff told me to pleaset ry once and say ‘penzel Q thank you.’ I said ahh no, can you give that to Junsu.
MC: it was like that?
JS: really? a lie. (T/N: ‘lie’ is used to show that you don’t believe what the other just said)
originally it was your line!?
YC: it wasn’t my line, it was Junsu’s line but it was that Yoochun try it once, if Yoochun’s is good we’ll use yours. they said it like that but I was ‘noo, (i don’t want to). I will entrust it to Junsu’
MC: Junsu’s (made us) a bit laugh but it was good right.
JS: i was really, in the start, it wasn’t with a energetic feel but it was like ‘penzel Q thank you’
MC: a bit refined. (in a) cool way.
YC: originally that is, originally what Junsu said was ‘penzel Q thank you’
JS: I did ‘penzel Q thank you,’ but the staff said ‘that’s wrong, it’s PENZEL Q THANK YOU!’ They kept on asking me to (do that). I worked hard and hard, it wouldn’t be laughable (otherwise). it wouldn’t be laughable if it wasn’t in a high tone feel (MC: high tone). So i just (went) and did it.
MC: everyone is asking you to do it. Just now you showed us a bit before, but once again with a higher tone feel
JS: really, in Korea, other than the fans (yoochun handing Junsu a tablet box), other than the fans, normal high school students, for example male high school students. If I meet such people, immediately after they see me they go ‘penzel Q thank you’
MC: it really became a topic (talked about) if with just that.
JS: But after shooting it and seeing the video, the big people of the company, everyone stood up and applauded. (they said) it was amazing.
MC: it makes everyone wanting to get a headache and buy the medicine. we want (him) to do it … Junsu could you do a bit (for us)?
MC: then please.
YC: cool okay? cool.
MC: 3, 2, 1, action
JS: Penzel Q thank you.
MC: it’s wrong, dissatisfaction.
JS: Penzel Q thank.. yaa, now it has ended already, the contract has ended.
MC: though the contract has ended, with trouble we came till here, if we don’t see it, we won’t be able to leave(/go back).
JS: everyone then please do ‘thank you’ together with me
MC: ‘thank you’ together right.
JS: Penzel Q thank you.
JS: thank you very much
YC: thank you very much.
アンコールでユスがBe my girlをアレンジして歌ってくれたんだけど、ジェジュンのパートは二人は歌わずジェジュンの声をそのまま流しててホロッとした(꒦ິ⌑꒦ີ) #JYJMembership2015
During encore Yoosu arranged and sang “Be my Girl” but, for Jaejoong’s part, without the two singing, they flowed Jaejoong voice as it is, i was touched (to the point of tears) (꒦ິ⌑꒦ີ)
今日罰ゲームでユチョンがインクレ踊ってくれたんだけど、日本FMの時よりスキルアップしてて凄くいい動きだった♡← 会場を煽ったりもして盛り上がる様子を眺めてウケてるジュンス♡wこれも絶対DVDに収めてください(灬´ิω´ิ灬) #JYJMembership2015
In today’s batsu-game (T/N game played in which loser is given a punishment) Yoochun danced to incredible but, it was skill uped as compared to during Japan FM, it was a really great dancing ♡← stirring up the hall (/audience), gazing at the state of excitement and enjoying Junsu ♡w (T/N ‘w’ stands for laugh) this as well, really want it included in the DVD, please(灬´ิω´ิ灬)
During game corner when they did jenga showdown, in order to win, Yoochun removed from places that would leave places that are difficult to remove for the next opponent, clever, intelligent war. Junsu forgetting about the match, going ahead successively daring (to choose) dangerous places as a self challenge. Their individual characteristics was coming out and it was interesting 😂
Pedometer game, the running for 90 seconds, taking rounds around the stage, jumping, the two had it tough with panting but their hair with a good feeling was rough and disordered that it was cute and infatuating (T/N moe(ru) in japanese) (灬´ิω´ิ灬). Especially Junsu’s messed up back hair was too cute O-<-<
Talk developed from JYJ have lots of skinship. According to Yoochun, right now is Jaejoong but in the past Junsu did more skinship. Especially, like touched members bottom frequently w. One day in the elevator (Junsu) about to touch Yoochun but Yoochun avoided it, “you’ve started to hate me now TT?” (Junsu) said w
Today’s Yoochun was mischievous more than usual with the weird faces and the pranks, it may be because he didn’t want to make the last with a lonely atmosphere~ i believe it is so like Yoochun^^ fans in high spirits with the game and hyped up, fun fanmeeting, it was good with a bright farewell (*^^*)
Just days before military service begins, JYJ’s Yoochun teared up at JYJ Membership Week
With military service looming around the corner (Aug. 27), JYJ’s Yoochun joined Junsu at the JYJ Membership Week on Aug. 25. With Jaejoong currently serving in the military, the two boys laughed and opened up with fans.
The highlight of the day was when the fans sang “Boy’s Letter” for Yoochun. This was the moment he lost it, and teared up.
“I say this all the time but it’s overwhelming to be the receiver of so much love,” Yoochun told fans.
He said that the song will live on in his memory and that he’d be back soon.
At the event, Junsu and Yoochun also read out a handwritten letter from Jaejoong who was conscripted last March. In the letter, Jaejoong said that he thought of his fans every day, and also addressed his “two favourite people” – Yoochun and Junsu, of course. To his bandmates, Jaejoong kept it simple. “Let’s continue to be happy.”
Check out the fan cam from the event:
