Okamoto, The president of the well-known Japanese concert agency Kyodo Yokohama, recently praised JYJ (Kim Jae Joong, Park Yoo Chun, and Kim Jun Su), saying, “They are comparable to Michael Jackson.” Okamoto, who is planning JYJ’s Japan Tokyo Dome show, went on to say, “I have been in charge of world-famous artists’ shows, and I was amazed at how well-disciplined JYJ’s dancing is. It compares well to that of Michael Jackson, who is the most famous artist I have ever worked with.”
JYJ plan to hold three concerts, titled 2013 JYJ Concert in Tokyo Dome – The Return of The JYJ, from last April 2 to April 4. The group gave a concert in the Tokyo Dome in June 2010, which is three years ago.
JYJ had to stop their activities for a while because of a contract problem with the large Japanese entertainment company Avex, but expectations for their return to performing are great, with all 150,000 seats for the three days of the upcoming concert sold out and advance requests for tickets were more than twice that.
“I think JYJ are incredible artists. They have shown us that Japanese fans are really looking forward to this concert. However, Japan has its rules and we want to adhere to them while at the same time keeping up the good work with JYJ. who prevailed in the trial,” said Okamoto, showing high expectations for the concert. He also said, “I expect JYJ to do a good job with their messages, songs, and performances for the fans, not only in Japan but also in the whole world.”
The JYJ concert will be broadcast live in 113 theaters nationwide in Japan. This will include Japan’s largest movie theaters, THOHO Cinema and Warner Mycal Cinema, on the last day of the show, April 4.
