JYJ, neither fear nor worries to become 30s
Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu of K-pop group JYJ said that they were not afraid to turn 30 at a press conference last Friday, opening up on their feelings about getting older.
“Now I am at the end of my 20s and I started to feel exhausted when I dance hard. Nevertheless, age is just a number,” Jaejoong said.
“It has been more than 10 years since we started working together and I have started to feel grateful to my friends and the people around me. I wish I could get along with them for the rest of my life. I am now old and mature enough to realize how blessed I am to perform in front of my fans,” Yoochun said.
“I am not worried nor nervous. Rather, I long to become 30 soon. Becoming 30 brings masculinity to my mind. Many experiences will make me a real man,” Junsu said.
“It is nice to become 30. I don’t know what kind of music am I going to do yet, but I think that makes me look forward to my 30s. As long as fans want me, I will do my best,” he added.
After 10 years of sharing struggles and joy, the trio showed great affection toward each other like brothers.
“We do not even have to talk to know each other’s feelings. We don’t fight and understand each other’s behaviors,” the group said.
After a concert in Hong Kong, JYJ will continue their Asia tour in eight cities including Shanghai in China.

JYJ said “We were planning to release the second regular album earlier as possible but due to various reasons it was delayed. Meanwhile we’ve been doing individual works and increased capabilities s as artists. We don’t feel like it’s been a long time that we’ve become release this album.”
Although it has been three years that JYJ visited fans in Asia countries, they are still enjoying great popularities among Asian countries. This album has topped the I-Tunes chart of 7 countries, including Indonesia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and more and also it ranked the second of Japanese Oricon Weekly chart even without an official release of the album. JYJ explained why they can keep popularities in abroad.

Add to this, JYJ stated “When we departed from Korea for the concert in Hong Kong, We have seen so many people at the airport. Our fans are not used to come to the airport and it was feel good. Whenever we go abroad, we‘re very much welcomed from many fans and that makes us think that we should do our best. “
JYJ had held a concert at Seoul Jamshil Main Stadium in three years to meet 30 thousand fans on the 9th.
JYJ shared their impressions for the concert, “It was feel good to have a concert at Jamshil Main Stadium for a long time. It’s been a while to release the album and we’re all excited to have a concert in Korea. We felt like we’re at home.”
