JYJ gave us a big surprise when they announced they would attend the Salon del Manga in Barcelona to give a press conference and a preview of the concert with two songs.
In the press conference, there was a time to make questions. First of all, when they reached the room, they introduced themselves and gave a short introduction.
Junsu: “Hi, nice to meet you. This is the first time I come to Spain in concert, I thank the spanish journalists who know that tonight we have the concert, I hope everything goes well and we will work hard. “

You know that after this press conference, we will sing two songs, it will be a short concert, but we like alot the relationship with our fans that attend this event is very important to us. “
Yoochun: “Many thanks for coming. I didn’t knew Korean manga had so much fame in Spain, I have seen many Korean manga posters that I missed a lot. I am delighted to attend this event, thank you very much. “

And with Kayne West it opened the doors of American market (they are on the payroll of Warner) with their ‘hit’ ‘Ayyy girl’ (the video is pure manga style). JYJ began the European Tour of their latest album ‘In Heaven’ (released in late September and already was out of print several times) with a concert at the Poble Espanyol of Barcelona, but in the morning at the “Salon del Manga” they offered a preview of some of their songs.
