Lee Ji Soo from Goldsum Pictures, the production company of ‘Three Days’, stated, “The results from TSUTAYA’s polls are encouraging. ‘Three Days’ has already received love calls from overseas, asking to buy broadcasting rights. Park Yoochun and Park Ha Sun will help lead to the path towards created a new Korean genre.”

Kim Jaejoong changed outfits frequently, matching each outfit to a different atmosphere and touching his fans. The highlight of the concert was the singer’s rendition of ‘Just Another Girl’, which was followed by cheers from his fans to return to the stage for an encore.

After performing ‘MINE’, the title song of Kim Jaejoong’s mini album, Kim Jaejoong said, “Unfortunately, I have to say goodbye with the song ‘Paradise’.

The excitement for JYJ’s Kim Junsu (XIA)’s second album Asia tour is hotter than ever.

C-JeS Entertainment stated, “The response that Kim Junsu has received for his first Japanese solo tour is amazing.

They continued to add, “The fans who were coming to watch the Yokohama concerts began queuing extremely early because they heard that the MD goods had been sold out in Nagoya. This may be because only one MD good can be bought per person. Though all concerts of Kim Junsu’s Japanese tour were held on a weekday, Japanese fans packed Yokohama’s busy streets to show their support for Kim Junsu on his first solo tour.”

The Japanese fans themselves expressed their satisfaction with the concert. Keiko Yamada (36) of Osaka stated, “I was sad that we couldn’t see Kim Junsu in Japan the last time he held a tour. I’m so happy that he’s here this year. Kim Junsu’s music has a sincerity that touches the heart. It was such a moving experience that I could never properly express in words.” Aimee (24) of Saitama said, “Kim Junsu sang ‘Tsubomi’ and said he’d come all the way here to see us. I could feel just how much he cares for his fans. I hope he will be able to release a full-length album in Japan soon.”

A representative stated, “There were many middle and high school students who had come to buy MD goods. Though he has been inactive in Japan for the past 3~4 years, Kim Junsu has been able to attract new fans with his albums. The fandom continues to expand as the years go by.”
