“Greetings. We are JYJ. We don’t know how should we begin. The unexpected disaster has tormented many in Japan with terror and sadness, knowing that among the victimized there are also our important fans, our hearts ache even more. We pray for those who had lost their lives on the past Friday, and also for the safety of those who are still missing. Even though the damage was terrifying, seeing the calm responses (of the Japanese people), e were very moved. This disaster is not only the sadness of Japan, but the sadness of the entire mankind. We believe that if everyone holds on to hope and courage, shortly the clouds will disappear, and the sun will shine through again. On the day of the earthquke, (I was) in Tokyo and was really shocked. Therefore, including the Koreans who reside in Japan, we worry for the safety of all Japanese people, and keep on watching (guarding) as we continue to check for the latest news. Although (the situation) is very tough, everyone, please stay strong. We JYJ are with you all. We want to lend you power. We wish we can meet the Japanese fans in the near future. We want to meet everyone. And we love you”.
