JYJ “We will pray.” Consolation Words to Affected Japanese Fans
Group JYJ left words of consolation and encouragement to those Japanese fans who have been affected by the natural disaster.
On the afternoon of 14 March, they said on their homepage, “I don’t know from what should I start saying. We heard that many Japanese have been affected by the earthquake that was unforeseen. We felt hurt and am very sad.”
Adding on, “There are friends that we know from Japan and those fans who support us and love us are in Japan, we felt very upset. We will pray from where we are that the disaster will pass soon and those people in Japan will be safe and free from hurt. Please be strong, everyone!”
Through their management company, JYJ expressed, “For the sake of those who have been upset because of this unforeseen disaster, we have plans to participate actively. We are planning to make donations that can help in the restoration of Japan.”
T/N: Fans, please! It doesn’t matter who does the donation or which donation organization you donate to, just help Japan in whatever ways you can!

Here’s the video JYJ left for the Japanese fans along with the translations:
Hello. This is JYJ.
We are not sure how to begin.
Due to an unexpected disaster, many in Japan are deep in sorrow and fear, and we know that among them are our dear fans, and our hearts very much ache. We pray for those people who passed away due to the earthquake on Friday and for the safety of those who are still missing.
We were moved by Japan’s calm response in the face of the terror of the disaster. We believe that the current disaster is not only the sadness of Japan but of all humankind. If we all have hope and courage, we believe that the clouds will soon disappear and the sun will shine again.
On the day of the earthquake, being in Tokyo, we were extremely shocked. Therefore, we are worried about the safety of the missing Japanese people and the Korean-Japanese. We are checking the bulletins of the press and are keeping watch. Please take heart despite the hardship. We, JYJ, are with you. We want to add to your strength.
We hope to meet with the Japanese fans soon. We wish to meet you all. And, we love you.
