110425 JYJ Taiwan Concert Successfully Ends – Getting Ready for USA
JYJ continued their successful Asia tour of the “JYJ World Tour Concert in 2011” at the Taipei Arena on the 23rd.
The arena was filled with over 10,000 fans and they sang along to the new songs that JYJ had prepared for the concert – showing their passion for their idols.
Having JYJ self-composed songs as the main attraction, they sang “Empty”, “Be my girl”, “Be the one.” They also sang songs from their music essay “Their Rooms” – “Mission”, “Fallen Leaves” and “I.D.S.” New songs that were especially prepared for the world concert, such as “In Heaven” and “get out” were sung. In total, the concert track list contained about 20 songs.
The stage and all the special effects were once again directed and arranged by Kim Jaejoong, which meant that the cross-styled stage used in Thailand was also in the Taiwan concert. This allowed more interaction with the fans and Jaejoong added subtitles for Taiwanese fans to overcome the language barrier. Fans shouted, “JYJ A New Beginning!” during their encore of “In Heaven” to show their gratitude for the 120 minutes of wonderful entertainment.
Taiwanese media gave copious amount of coverage on JYJ’s concert in Taiwan. They heavily focused on Jaejoong’s role in stage direction and was intrigued by Jaejoong’s idea of a “creative challenge.” In response to this, famous Taiwanese star, Kris Shen, tweeted his views of JYJ’s concert after their performance and claimed that they were his idols.
After finishing the Taiwan stop of their tour, JYJ states, “It was the happiest two hours that we’ve spent with our dearly missed Taiwanese fans. We were touched that they were able to sing along with our new songs. We felt that we were able to reach a new level of completion through this concert. We’re happy and hope that everyone will look forward to our future performances.”
JYJ left Taiwan on the afternoon of the 24th – with hundreds of fans waiting for them in departure hall of the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.
JYJ will start the North American leg of their world tour with Vancouver as their stop on May 20th, New Jersey on 22nd, LA on 27th and ending at San Jose on June 3rd.
