[TRANS] 120224 JYJ’s Daily-Life Documentary “The Day” Attracts Crowd Of Over 4,000 People To Its Premiere… “Satisfies All Five Senses”

Group JYJ’s (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) daily-life documentary film “The Day”, with its content that satisfies all five senses, together with stage greetings (by the members), attracted crowds and caused the cinemas to be extremely packed during its first day of screening.

On 23 February, “The Day” began showing on 19 of Lotte Cinema’s big-screens, attracting more than 4,000 viewers. “The Day” is a documentary film originally filmed by JYJ for TV broadcasting purposes. It was a collaboration done last year with cable TV channel QTV. However, the broadcast of the completed documentary ended up being cancelled by QTV, and will now finally be screened at Lotte Cinemas. The content this time was produced with the main intent of fanservice, and it has been edited into a 90 minute movie version.

The stage greetings on this day were done at Lotte Cinema at the Hongik University Entrance. From the carpark, to the entrance of the building, to the streets nearby, all these areas were packed with crowds of both local and international fans. In order to manage the entrance and prevent chaotic situations, the entrance of the building had a sign which said “Entry Only Allowed For Ticket-Holders”.

Aside from the locations originally planned for stage greetings this time, the members also made surprise appearances, driving the fans wild. During the stage greetings, the members not only did the basic self-introductions as well as an introduction of the movie. They also gave detailed updates about their lives recently, and answered the fans’ questions during a Q&A session, satisfying the requests of the audience. The fans’ response during the Q&A session of the stage greeting was like that of a fanmeeting.

In particular, aside from the originally notified locations, the members also did surprise stage greetings at the Hongik University Entrance and Shin Rim cinemas. Seeing the members suddenly appear at the end of the movie, fans felt very lucky, and saw it as their “fortune”. Related personnel expressed, “As the fans were very happy with the surprise events prepared, the members were also very happy.”

On that day, Jaejoong posted a question to the audience, “(Although) it is a film from a year ago, it still seems very new to us now. How does everyone know JYJ to be like?”, and interacted with the audience. Meanwhile, Junsu sang a short verse from his musical, while Yoochun caused much laughter when he began to briefly act out an interesting scene from the drama “Rooftop Prince”, which he is currently filming for.

 The movie showcases the daily lives of the members up-close, as well as their dreams, friends and families. It also shows places and situations behind-the-scenes, which fans are not able to come into contact with easily. The thing that made the documentary interesting, and more than just a movie that simply recorded this and that, was the members’ commentary.

Rather than merely having video images, the appearance of the members as they gave their commentary can be seen in a little screen on the video, giving rise to a whole new film. Thus, even fans who have the ordinary DVDs can also see new things.

“The Day” does not show special sides of JYJ. Rather, it showcases the ordinary sides of the members in their daily lives, such as holding birthday parties, returning to their homes to spend festivals with their families, playing ping pong with friends, and other small things such as going to restaurants which they like. However, playing with friends like this, going for barbecues and spending festivals with family are all considered “a special day” for the members. Although others can do all this normally, but it makes the audience feel sorry for the members who only now, are able to happily spend time and communicate with the people around them.

In the movie, various corners of the members’ homes were revealed, as well as the foods they liked, stories about their parents as well as their thoughts about each other, etc. For examples, there were stories about how Kim Junsu was a Janggu (“Long Drum”) whiz as a child, about how Jaejoong had three birthday parties when he was born, as well as the story of Yoochun, who unlike his brother who is more careful, doesn’t bother with his appearance as well as other stories, and there were interesting episodes hidden throughout the movie.

In an interesting interlude, in the movie there were a lot of scenes where the members were eating various special foods, and watching the members eat all kinds of delicacies made our mouths water. But the members who were watching the video and giving the commentary said that the food wasn’t that good, shattering the concept of the food being delicious.

A woman in her 30s who just finished watching the movie today said, “Although I’m a fan, I can still understand more of a hidden side to the members through this movie, so I like it a lot. The conversational banter among the three members who were commenting, was really interesting and made me laugh out loud. Also, there were some moments where I couldn’t help but feel pained when looking at them. Watching the record of a year in the members’ lives, it was a satisfying 90 minutes for our eyes and ears.”

[TRANS] 120220 JYJ Movie, Surpasses “Crime” To Rank 1st In Presales…Seats In 19 Cinemas Sold Out, “Expected To Blow Up A Storm”

Group JYJ’s daily-life documentary “The Day” is will be hitting the theatres.

According to statistics from the Film Council’s real-time cinema ticket sales figures on the afternoon of 20 February, JYJ’s “The Day” took 1st place with a whopping 42.8%, while “Nameless Gangster (The War Against Crime)” ranked 2nd with 11.5% of the total sales. (JYJ) took 1st place with a large margin of almost 4 times.

Furthermore, once the ticket sales opened, more than 110,000 users logged into the site at the same time, causing the server to crash. JYJ’s management company C-Jes Entertainment expressed, “Seats for “The Day” in all 19 Lotte cinemas have been sold out.”

Representatives of Lotte Cinema commented, “At 1pm, when the reservations for tickets of shows during which JYJ would make appearances were put on sale, 110,000 users were on the site at the same time, causing the server to crash temporarily. And the sales for all 19 cinemas which opened at 4pm also sold out within an hour. In particular, (tickets for) the Busan cinema sold out in a record time of 5 minutes.”

“The Avenuel shop near Lotte Hotel was crowded since morning with Japanese tourists who were there to purchase tickets. Usually, even contents related to singers also only sell about 30%, and the fact that (“The Day”) was able to receive an explosive reaction of selling out so quickly left even the management surprised. They are true Hallyu stars.”

JYJ’s representatives expressed, “As it was produced with the intention of fanservice, we have yet to decide how long it will be running in cinemas. However, as we have been receiving many calls from the fans who have not been able to purchase tickets, we, together with Lotte Cinema, are currently considering increasing the number of screenings.”

“‘The Day’ is a 90 minute production made with the intention of fanservice, for the fans for Valentine’s Day. It records the daily lives of the 3 members of JYJ, as well as their dreams, friendship, happiness and true stories.”
