After that, Kim Junsu and Kim Jaejoong’s sad renditions of the song left many fans in tears. Park Yoochun’s performance was completed within the fans’ cries. Lastly, Kim Junsu’s monologue re-stabilised the atmosphere but as the song ends, the fans were moved to tears once again.
During ‘Found You (Chajatta)’, Park Yoochun shouted, “Found everybody!” and appeared, making every fans laughed. JYJ and fans singing together of “Saranghae” displayed the interactive stage shared between singers and fans. Park Yoochun dedicated the final part of the lyrics to all the fans with “Thank you all for standing by JYJ”.
The concert also revealed JYJ’s self compositions, ‘Boy’s Letter’ blended the three splendid voices; During ‘You’re’, JYJ went running around the stage, interacting with fans though eyes; Kim Jaejoong collaboration with Park Yoochun for ‘Get Out’ is a strong tempo dance song, although it was not being revealed till now, fans were able to sing along, pushing greater heights to the live atmosphere.
Towards the end of the concert, JYJ said, “This world tour allowed us to see with our own eyes that there were many fans who came and this made us felt blessed. Thanks a lot to Korean fans who have always loved us. Last week at the Japan concert, we thanked the Japanese fans who waited over 1 year for us but Korean fans waited us for 2 years. Everyone right here are not audiences but our family. We will continue to create JYJ or individual activities in order to meet with everyone and will work hard in growing to be a more mature JYJ.”
JYJ’s new song ‘In Heaven’ was Busan concert’s farewell song and the central stage gradually became a round-shaped with the 3 members deeply looking at each other, drenched in perspirations, delivering the last song with their best effort.
