They shine the brightest when standing on stage.
Completing the concerts in Thailand, Taiwan, China, Canada, America and others, JYJ came to Busan as their final stop of the World Tour, and they can be considered as artists who “are capable of mesmerizing a full crowd of fans”
The concert officially started at 8pm after it got delayed for an hour due to issues with the stage and other problems. Amidst a gorgeous laser show and fast-paced rhythmic beats, the screen showed images of the members, kicking off the concert and sending the crowds into a passionate frenzy.
The Sajik Indoors Gymnasium which was the location for this concert had long been covered in red. The audiences held their breath as they waited for the idols they love so much, and as if they had been under a spell, lost themselves to the brilliant performance and JYJ’s music. The stage had a large center with two circular extensions, a set-up that made full use of the Sajik Indoors Gymnasium.
In the audience, there were not only fans from Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan as well as other Asian countries, but fans that flew in from Europe and America as well. There were “couple” fans who came hand-in-hand, “mother” fans who brought their children, and a formidable presence from the “auntie” fan groups. There were also quite a number of male fans, which was something that differentiated them from other idol group performances.
The members of JYJ, who have successfully completed their world tour, looked more at ease now that the tour was over.However, they continued to show their unique abilities. They exhibited explosive power starting from the first song, and as a result, were covered in sweat. They dominated the stage as they were “sometimes soft and gentle, like a lover whispering in your ear, yet sometimes so intense that you felt like your heart was going to explode.”
It was a performance that blended charisma, sexiness, and perfect vocals as one. They also showed their adorable and talented sides, eliminating all anxiousness among the audience. The solo stages showed the member’s personal charm and power at a glance. They also occasionally pulled off some sexy moves to “train” the fans.
Just like this, the members of JYJ unselfishly displayed their own charms on stage. But for them to be able to showcase all of their talents and passion, then a 120 minute performance will be too short a time, and the Sajik Indoors Gymnasium would be too small a space.
It was a performance that was filled with so much action that it you could not even tear your eyes away for a second. The audiences seemed to understand each other perfectly, cheering for the members, clapping and dancing in perfect synchronization. Surrendering their bodies to the music of JYJ, and indulging in the fast-pace of the stage, everyone (the audience & JYJ) came together as one.
In the gymnasium, the project for “Fallen Leaves” turned the whole stadium yellow; the audience danced together, and did the wave during “Be My Girl,” bringing the concert to its peak. This could be considered as a most extravagant mass dance.
However the thing that left the deepest impression during this concert was how JYJ’s true feelings could be felt by everyone in the audience. To their fans, who stood together with them through their battles in this unfair world, who hurt, agonized, fought, cried and laughed alongside the members, JYJ put all of their thankful emotions into this concert.
When singing “Chajatta,” they shouted to the fans “Thank you, for coming to JYJ’s side,” saying “As long as you do not change, we too will not change.”
As the concert approached its end, Jaejoong asked the fans, “Does everyone hope that we will have more performances?” and promised the audience “In the future, we will bring better songs to everyone, and will treat this as a learning experience and a motivation to work harder. The next time, we will greet everyone with an even better performance.” Although we don’t know when this promise will be fulfilled, but the fans have already started waiting for this day to come.
