[Tokyo Dome Concert Review] JYJ’s strength that pierced 24,552 hours

[Tokyo Dome Concert Review] JYJ’s strength that pierced 24,552 hours

APR 05, 2013


[Billboard Korea Tokyo = Eun Ju Kim] ‘ずっと 一緒に’ (Be together for long)

50,000 white banners were fluttering between red lights. The welcome messages to greet JYJ who came back to Tokyo Dome in three years fluttered like blooming cherry blossoms around the centre of Japan. When the number 24552 appeared on the screen, JYJ came out.

JYJ stood at Tokyo Dome -the stage of dream – again. It’s the group’s 4th year and 24,552 hours past since they left the same stage. It was caused by the long aftermath of the legal disputes. JYJ made a contract with AVEX in FEB 2010 while it was having a lawsuit with SM Entertainment, the former management, but also faced another lawsuit after the both parties had conflicts in the range of the group’s activities. The seemed-to-be-endless lawsuits lasted 3 years. The group finally won the lawsuit to clarify invalidity of exclusive contact and demand compensation for damage against AVEX. About 7.8 billion won was also ruled as the compensation.

Tokyo Dome, JYJ’s comeback stage, is a special place for the group. The venue is only available for top artists in Japan and the three hit the stage as the first Korean singer at the Tokyo Dome when they were TVXQ. June 2010, they burst into tears at the same place as JYJ. As soon as the group finished the lawsuit against AVEX, JYJ chose Tokyo Dome for its comeback. The dome that is big enough to have 50,000 people was rented for 3 days in a row. It was not even weekend schedules. The decision based on confidence from stable popularity was bold as the presents for fans who were waiting for the group. JYJ became the 15 times more popular group compared to their first live tour in Japan ‘Heart, Mind and Soul’ in MAY 2006 which drew 15,000 audience in 7 cities.


The president (Mr. Okamoto) of Kyodo Yokohama, Japanese production company of Tokyo Dome Concert this time, said that “Drawing 150,000 people at once tells us that JYJ’s power hasn’t changed. The scale of the concert can be compared to Michael Jackson and JYJ’s group dance became more brilliant”.

Mr. Miura of Dentsu Music Entertainment also analyzed the secret of JYJ’s Tokyo Dome sold out as ‘Artist Power’. “Making all seats sold out right after the sales begun just proves the unimaginably great power. I think JYJ has something that draws peoples’ hearts”, he added.

JYJ also proved it on the stage too. The title of the album in 2011 ‘In Heaven’, ‘Boy’s Letter’ written for fans and ‘Rainy Blue’ from the past Japanese song when they did as TVXQ too all delivered fantastic harmony with the group’s 10th year since debut.

The long 3-years gab could not catch up with JYJ. A long wait made the group mature, blocking in Japan opened the new bridge to Asia, Europe and others. As if an eagle earns his wings, JYJ drew 210,000 people in 15 cities including Europe, South and North America with JYJ World Tour in 2011-2012. The three members became the first Korean male singer who had solo concert in Spain, Germany, Chile and Peru.


As an individual, the time made all three members ensure personal improvement. Junsu Kim released his first solo album ‘Tarantallegra’ in MAY last year and successfully finished world tour in 6 Asian countries and 5 North/south America as the first solo male singer in each country. Jaejoong Kim also sold 140,000 copies(management’s count) of his first mini album and released re-package album ‘Y’ too. Yuchun Park was outstanding in Drama field. With KBS ‘SKK Scandal’ as a first step, MBC ‘Miss Ripley(2011), SBS ‘Rooftop Prince(2012) and MBC ‘I Miss You(2013) all made a good success.

Ms. Eriko who we met at the dome told us that “JYJ understand the meaning of Japanese language really well and sings right with sympathy. It’s completely different to other ordinary K-POP singers who just memorises and sing the lyrics[without true understanding]. Above all, they sing really well and I like the talent that the three members have”.

The close friendship also gave strength to endure obstructs. “When we look back on the past 1,000 days, there were tough time but we were happy. There also were unexpected difficulties but we were able to learn more and grow up. We’ll keep running as much as the fans like the way we try hard.” Yuchun also added that “Our goal is to have activities together for a long time rather than making money and popularity. I want to sing when I’m old”. Jaejoong said to the fans before ‘Fallen Leaves’ that “It was so hard to come to Tokyo Dome and I believe there’ll be good days from now. We’ll do our best with your faith supporting us in a far distance”.

The last day of JYJ’s Tokyo Dome concert with 26 songs was also able at cinemas in Japan too. 300,000 people applied for 150,000 tickets so special place was made for the fans who couldn’t come to. 113 screens at cinemas in Japan including Toho cinema and Warner Cinema provided the concerts too. 60,000 tickets were sold out and 10,000 more tickets were added.

[Tokyo Dome Concert Review] About Starting Again that Bewitched 150,000 Audience

[Tokyo Dome Concert Review]
About Starting Again that Bewitched 150,000 Audience

APR 05, 2013


The venue with 50,000 seats was a full house. Some seats did not seem to be proper seats, but all of them were occupied without an exception. The red ocean beautifully flew at the last day of ‘The Return of the JYJ (Jaejoong Kim, Yuchun Park and Junsu Kim)’, that the group’s Tokyo Dome Concert in 3 years.

It is now a familiar factor in Korea that Japanese artists also feel honoured to have a concert at Tokyo Dome. And the Korean artist who has not been able to have any activities on any media such as TV, radio and newspaper made 150,000 seats for 3 days sold out despite the fact that the group had 3-year gap.

As JYJ always shows off its unshakable live with outstanding performance, the all three members just exploded their charms as a group and grabbed the audience’s attention with strong opening, ‘Ayyy Girl’ and ‘Be The One’ from the first World-Wild album.

Yuchun Park explained his feelings at the press conference before the concert, “I remember that we cried a lot with the staff here after the Tokyo Dome Concert three years ago(2009). I did not expect that it’d take this long to be here again. We are so happy to come back to Tokyo Dome again”.

The each different attraction even more shined at individual stages. Junsu Kim showed ‘Breath’, ‘Lullaby’ from his solo album ‘Tarantallegra’ with intensity and softness. While he was singing Ayaka’s ‘みんな空の下’ with the lyrics “I’m not afraid of anything cause I crossed many hurdles over and over again. You’re not alone”, the dome went solemn for a while and some fans wiped their tears.

Yuchun Park sang ‘Friend’ of Anzenchitai, ‘Old Song’ of Dong-Ryul Kim and his new own song that he revealed for the first time at this Tokyo Dome concert. The new song is a brit-pop genre with fresh feelings of Spring and his unique detailed emotion. It could be one of the signature song of Spring.

Jaejoong heated the stage with ‘Mine’ from his fierce solo album ‘Y(& I)’ early this year. JYJ also put ‘In Heaven’ on the stage as a start (of group stage) after 5 songs of Jaejoong and Junsu, 4 songs of Yuchun, ‘Boy’s Letter(the song written for fans)’, ‘You’re’ and ‘Found You’ with car parade.

JYJ also touched the fans’ emotion with perfect harmony of ‘Rainy Blue’, the song they sang in the past stage of JYJ in Japan.

Before the finale, Jaejoong left his message saying “We are standing here in 4 years. It was chaotic time and everyday was so hard for us. I believe it is your faith in us which made us meet here again. This song is about our hearts that we want to deliver”. – ‘Fallen Leaves’ followed after his message.

The colour of fans’ lights changed when ‘Fallen Leaves’ which Junsu Kim wrote about JYJ’s new start begun. It was a touching moment of falling leaves after glamorous flowers with JYJ emotional vocals harmonized. The lights looked like flying cherry blossom fetal, and JYJ came to the stage again for fans’ demands for encore. With ‘Be My Girl’ and ‘Empty’, JYJ successfully finished its long-and-short journey for three days.

“I went to Korea two times to see JYJ, but it is entirely different feeling to see JYJ in Japan again. It’s not just about going to concert. I really thank for JYJ who didn’t give up and I’m also proud of ourselves that we’ve waiting so far. There is no artist and fan who share each other’s emotion like us. Really want to say huge thanks to JYJ”, said Ms. Aya among the audience.

The other fan Ms. Eriko also said that “We’ve been waiting for JYJ so long really desperately. This is the day we were dreaming. I couldn’t stop crying when I heard the news of this concert. Today is the day that everyone was missing and dreaming, so I won’t cry. I’ll remember every single moment with JYJ tonight”.

JYJ’s Tokyo Dome concert was a ‘healing stage’ to soothe the hearts of the fans’ who waited for JYJ, who spent a time like a long dark tunnel more than anyone. If a selection of songs to communicate with audience and live performance that grabs the audience are more basic conditions than lighting and stage direction, JYJ sang its hope for ‘starting again’ with the stage that was faithful to the basics.

[Tokyo Dome Concert Review] JYJ, SPRING, Walk Again

[Review] JYJ, SPRING, Walk Again

APR 05, 2013


[Tokyo=E Daily Star/ Woo Young Jo]

‘When even a gentle breeze holds its breath for us / Love flows more between-hand we are holding / You came to me like a dream in the Spring and cast a spell on my lonely heart…’

These are parts of the lyrics of JYJ Yuchun’s new own song. He revealed the song for the first time at Tokyo Dome stage where he came back in about 3 years as a present for the fans waiting for JYJ. It expresses JYJ’s feeling as it is.


JYJ held its concert ‘The Return of the JYJ’ at Tokyo Dome in Japan for 3 days in a row from Apr 2 to Apr 4. The group’s popularity has not been changed. The 150,000 seats were all sold out right after the sales begun.


The concert on Apr 4, 50,000 audience started counting 5 to 1. On the count of 5, Tokyo Dome was filled with roar. But the dome went silent with the subtitled video – “When we were at Tokyo Dome in June 2010 as JYJ for the first time, we were happy. But we never knew that it would take this long for us to meet you here again. Since the day we left Tokyo Dome, the dark time with no end started. After 24,552 hours past, and now we bring JYJ here”

Fans in silence all rose up from the seats together with roars that could break the ceiling of the dome because it is an enormous venue, JYJ looked tiny on the stage unless you were in the front row.

JYJ opened the concert with strong intro, ‘Mission’ and heated the venue with ‘Ayyy Girl’ and ‘Be The One’ in a row. The hands of the large clock behind the stage were being put backward. It took 3 years to get back to Tokyo Dome after they formed JYJ. The clock looked like image of the group’s will to rewind lost 3 years.

JYJ wasn’t able to sing its songs of the past TVXQ(5 members). The members overcame difficult time with their own albums by making new songs and stages. With the effort, they showed everything with 26 sings. JYJ said that “We hope our true feelings could be delivered just as it is”, and those desire all reached fans.


JYJ, stood again in front of 50,000 audience, became more mature. The group is now having 10th year as a singer but all members were passionate with the best of a brand-new group. They gave comfort to fans with explosive singing and emotion and fans were glad with every movement and smiles from JYJ. When they sang ‘Found You’, JYJ’s one of the hit songs and Soundtrack of SKK Scandal, everyone sang together the lyrics “I love you” in Korean.

‘Would you stay with me if I spared my words that I love you / or would you stay with me if I said I love you once more’ (the lyrics of Yuchun’s new song) – April, with the season of Cherry Blossoms, JYJ has its Spring too in 3 years.

The group was not able to have proper activities for 3 years in Korea and Japan after dispute with its former management SM Entertainment[Translators note: 2009] and AVEX’s unilateral cancellation of the contract in 2010. About 1,000 days after, JYJ finished the lawsuit with SM Entertainment in November last year and also won the lawsuit against AVEX on Jan 18.


JYJ’s Tokyo Dome concert last over 3 hours. Many fans did not leave after the encore ‘Be My Girl’ and ‘Empty’. JYJ left with the message with “There will never be neither ‘Goodbye’ nor ‘Fareware’”. Some fans moved to tears by those words.

At the press conference before the concert on this day, JYJ calmly said that “It doesn’t mean that there is no barrier after legal dispute ended. We can guess it(invisible disturbance) could be worse. We won’t hurry”.

With the new Spring, they want to walk slow. The weather on the first and second day of JYJ’s concert was stormy.  On the last day, blue sky cleared up and sunlight flooded.
