It’s already been seven years since their debut. JYJ(Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) and their fans both share warm hearts and a need to help others. Maybe it’s because they have spent much time together and overcome many obstacles to get to where they are now.
JYJ have been repaying their fans’ love by giving back to the global community, donating a portion of their income from every concert to an international non-governmental organization(NGO). Watching JYJ take an initiative to do good deeds is enough for their fans to make an example out of them. Fans have been participating in a variety of activities such as rice wreath donations, blood donor card donations and donation drives for people with heart disease.
When reporters began praising JYJ’s fans for their charity work, Kim Jaejoong said with a proud expression, “I’m really proud of them. I know that they’ve done so many more good deeds all over the world than those that are known. Watching our fans and their work makes us feel like we should take a more active initiative in doing good deeds. I’m delighted by our fans.”
JYJ were often seen shedding tears at their Asia showcase, world tour and fan meetings because of the unwavering love that they receive from their fans. And at the center of these stages of tears stood Kim Jaejoong.
In a broadcasted interview, the other members of JYJ stated, “Kim Jaejoong has a lot of tears. Once he starts, his tears just pour out of him endlessly. He sobs as if there are water taps in his eyes that have been turned on.”
To this, Kim Jaejoong said, “In the past, I cried often. There was a period of time when I cried a lot, but I’ve been crying less these days. I think my tear ducts have closed up,” and emphasized that he is no longer a man with many tears.
Kim Jaejoong has been chosen as the member who monitors the reactions of their fans the most. When asked why, his eyes sparkled as he said, “I’m really curious about what they talk about.”
“There are fans who have liked us since our debut but there are a lot of people who became our fans after we started singing as JYJ. From those in their 30s and 40s who became our fans through Yoochun’s ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ to those in their teens who like us regardless of the fact that there are so many idol groups out there, I’m amazed at how much our fandom has spread through the different age groups.”
“Some may believe that monitoring is a tedious chore because of my busy schedule but it really isn’t. I’m really curious about what our fans talk about and about what they’re thinking.”
