JYJ in Europe. A news that delighted the European fans when they knew that their stars have scheduled two dates in Europe to meet them. Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu set fire to the stage at Poble Espanyol in Barcelona on October 29th, 2011 and 8 days later, November 6th, in Berlin. Soompi France went to Barcelona to attend the concert of the three gods of the East. More than 3,000 people from all over Europe came to cheer on the three singers.
French, Spanish, Italian, German, English… All nationalities were present in front of Poble Espanyol. Many Spanish people were surprised to see the long queue that began to form in October 28th (or even before for the more adventurous fans). The fans explained with their heart that they were there for one thing, for one group, and for an event they had waited for so long : JYJ. The fans and enthusiasts counted hours before finding themselves faced with the three singers. Sleeping [at the venue] or waiting all day didn’t bother them – far from it. Some answered “I’m desperate to be as close to the stage as possible and see them in the flesh.”
It is emotionally hard for foreign fans as they can only see these stars on the internet from their computer since they are at the other end of the world. When they materialized in front of the fans, it was a surreal experience.

JYJ in Berlin – Unreleased Interview.
On the afternoon of the 4th, two days before JYJ’s concert in Berlin, I had an interview with them. Although unable to be used on the broadcast, there were a few good words and so I record them here instead.
It is the final world tour of this year. What aspects will you appeal?
Junsu: The current tour is not new, it is the extension of the worldwide album. There is nothing particularly changed on this tour. Instead, we were able to stand [on the stage] with the European dancers. He is a famous entertainer in Spain (Rafa Méndez). He is someone who can do acrobatic acts in dancing with the passion that befits Europe. He molded such dances into the concert. If there are points that are different then those are it.
To be contrasted with collaborative concerts from other agencies, this is the first solo concert in Europe. You said that the difference was that there could be a narrative—what does that mean?
Junsu: A concert planned by an agency is one in which many artists come out and sing their representative songs and then finish. But JYJ can show a variety with talk and conversation. From there, it is different. There is a story that dance songs and ballad songs give. But when singers merely sing their own songs and then get out, then when transitioning from dance to ballad it can be unnatural. It is different in that regard. Looking at it from another angle, it is not to post the title of the agency but rather a concert that puts the team’s name on the stake in the foreign land of Europe. In just looking at the fact that we made the first stride in Spain and Germany which were untraveled (by Korean artists), it is meaningful. Read More →

Dispatch is well-known to be the leading tabloid/gossip publication in Korea.
On November 3rd, Dispatch published an article with the headline of “Did 3000 Come? JYJ, the Truth Behind the Controversy of Having Manipulated the [Facts About] the Spain Concert.” (Found here) The article asserted that the figure of 3000 was false.
Responding to this, on November 3rd, Lee Jaeun (@beyondmonica) who is the publicist to JYJ tweeted the following:
[TRANS] Was totally nervous for the 13 hours of flight to the degree that I developed my trapezius muscles. When I landed I received the text messages from many. Yes, I feel that I made the right decision. Indeed, best response to an action with malicious intent is to “not respond” at all. Now meeting is over. Let’s unpack. It is now Berlin. ^^”
[TRANS] @fan As for the rumors [about JYJ], the managers [care enough to the degree that they] go to the police station once a week and it is also something that we find to be the most pressing. But as the the article, over 30 strong media outlets prove [our facts] and there is not even 1% of lies on our side and so there is no need to respond.
This is the statement made by JYJ’s publicist herself on this particular article. (1) In other words, JYJ’s publicist herself informed the fans that the article is a rumor and that its writer does not deserve the satisfaction of receiving our attention. Read More →

JYJinSpain is the union of the main JYJ/TVXQ fansites in Spain: Yongwonhi;Sub – SPFTVXQ – JYJ Spain & JaeChunSu Spain to organize the fanprojects for the JYJ concert in Barcelona.
We wanted to make this concert memorable for our boys, so we decided to prepare some presents for them. For three weeks we received donations (mostly from Spanish fans) but we counted with the collaboration of great fans from some countries of Latin America, Italy, Germany, Qatar and even from DBSKnights and Park Yoochun Community as well.
Fanaccount 1: “These 3 men are made to perform and be on stage, believe me recordings and fancams don’t do them justice”
I flew from the UK to Berlin, after a short stop by Amsterdam to change plane (I couldn’t find a direct flight D:), and arrived there around 11AM on Saturday.
I didn’t really know how to go from the airport to my hotel as I figured I would just have to ask the airport staff for directions, which I did. They weren’t really nice but it was still okay, I managed to get the information I needed and bought the bus/train (S-bahn) ticket. I took the bus without any trouble but once I got to the S-bahn station, things started to get a bit more complicated. According to the people from the airport I had to take the S42 which was supposed to take me straight to the hotel. But they forgot to mention the fact that when it reaches some stations, the S42 sometimes becomes S41, and so that I had to get off the S42 (which would then become the S41 and go all the way back to where the S42 started, which means in the opposite direction from where I had to go) and wait for an other S42, get in, and keep going till I reach my stop. I don’t know if you get what I’m trying to explain, but if not don’t worry, let’s just say it was very confusing and illogical for me since it was my first time in Berlin and I had no idea how the public transports worked there and since I don’t speak german it was even more difficulty to understand. I asked several people for directions, including a bunch of bulky policemen who looked kind of intimidating, but I was surprised when I realized that none of them could really speak english. I don’t really know why but I was always under the impression that almost all germans could speak english more or less fluently, but except for the airport staff (and yet, some of them couldn’t speak that well either), all the german people I talked to sucked at english. Anyways, after randomly getting in and off of the (wrong) train several times, I finally got to my hotel and went to the reception to check in. There, surprise surprise, I met two other french girls and since I had the feeling that they were JYJ fans I innocently asked them what they were doing in Berlin. Turned out I was right, they were here for the concert too. We talked a little bit while waiting for our keys and exchanged phone numbers to meet up the next morning, before going to our respective rooms.
A bit later I got a text from the french girls telling me to meet them the next day at 6AM so that we could go to the Tempodrom together in order to get our tickets. We already had online tickets but we needed our real tickets as well as our seat number and had to start to queue early since the first ones to get there would have the best seats (a few people even spent the night at the Tempodrom to be sure to be first). Unfortunately, the next morning I had some problem with my phone alarm (I don’t know if it didn’t ring or if I just didn’t hear it) and woke up around 8AM instead. I was in a panic and quickly texted the other girls to apologize and to explain the situation. They were already in the queue at the Tempodrom and told me it was fine and that I should just join them once I’m ready. They gave me directions to the Tempodrom and I hurried up there without getting lost or making mistakes this time (taking the S-bahn is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it).
