JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong recently met over 600 fans in Turkey through his fan meeting.

Kim’s fan meeting was held on February 5 at Ankara University in Turkey. Over 600 tickets for the fan meeting sold out in only 30 minutes after they started being on sale.

The Korean Cultural Center in Turkey said, “We invited JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong, who has the most fans in Turkey as a Korean singer, to hold his fan meeting so that we can promote cultural exchange between Korea and Turkey and spread Hallyu.”

Even though the weather was cold, many fans came to the fan meeting. They brought red balloons and sang JYJ’s songs along together.

When Kim appeared, he made the fans cheered in unison by saying hello in Turkish.

The fan meeting helped Kim to communicate with his fans. The fans played a video, which they made for Kim and they also held a surprise birthday party for him with a cake.

Over 600 Turkish fans sang the birthday song in Korean to celebrate Kim’s birthday. Kim sang the song “I’ll Protect You,” which was played in the series Protect the Boss.

Kim says, “I visited Turkey for the first time in my life. Thank you so much for welcoming me and I feel very comfortable here. I will do my best to promote Korean cultures as a cultural mission. I want to come back here again with our group members to hold a concert.”

Kim’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, says, “There are lots of JYJ’s fans in all over the world not just in Korea and Asia. We heard that there are many Turkish people who love Kim and that turned out to be true through the fan meeting.

Kim will attend a meeting, which will be held at Ankara University on February 6, with President Lee Myung Bak and the youth. Then he will attend a state dinner at the Presidential Palace of Turkey.

  1. It was more that 600,i was there :D

    • Sorry,i mean more than 600,as article says :)

    • I envied you. I wish i was there. Hope not only Jae but also Junsu and Yoochun will come to SG this year. Miss them.

  2. First time I saw an article in Korea that kept referring to him by his last name. Usually he is called Jaejoong. Here they keep calling him Kim. Because he went representing Korea they are showing respect?

  3. “Kim will attend a meeting, which will be held at Ankara University on February 6, with President Lee Myung Bak and the youth. Then he will attend a state dinner at the Presidential Palace of Turkey”

    I hope someone can enlighten me what does “state dinner” mean. Thanks.

    • The dinner is given by the president of the republic and his wife for Korean president and his wife. Jaejoong will also accompany him. (source: nate & Cankaya Presidental Palace’s website).

      • ok, thanks for ur explanation. That’s very great ^^

  4. as I know SS501’s the most famous group in turkey :D not JYJ or Homin. I was there too, I was really happy because he came here, but I was dissappointed a bit because he stayed only 50 minutes in the fan meeting but we are told that it was 2 hours. Anyway he is not my bias and I understood he will never be :D but he is more handsome in person

    • sorry to comment but when I read that more than 2000people called to attend the fanmeeting and a lot of Jaejoong fans couldn’t make it but someone like you who isn’t even his fan attended it just bcs he’s a kpop idol, I’m a bit pissed off. Also correct me if I got the wrong info but I heard that the meeting was free so you don’t really have the right to complain abt it and anyways it’s not like it’s Jaejoong’s fault more like the staff organizing the event. Glad he won’t be your bias, I guess he deserves better fans who love him not just bcs he’s famous and more handsome in person! sorry if I sound rude but your post clearly lacked tact!

      • you are free to say whatever you want, no need to sorry, I’m fan of JYJ so I felt I need to attempt to support, and don’t worry 2000 people’s bias is not only him, there were junsu’s and yoochun’s fans like me and I didn’t say I don’t love him, just he is not my bias. maybe I am not a good fan. beeing a good fan is that maligning someone because she/he said something not good to your bias? , though I do not know who is your bias

  5. Blessings Jaejoong.

    What a wonderful opportunity to make a statement and represent Korea to another culture. One of the most remarkable things about yourself, Junsu, Yoochun, Changmin, and Yunho has been your appeal to the masses all over the world. This means great responsibility on your part and ours to steer each other in the right direction. Lots of Love, Momma Cha

    • *thumbs up*

    • well said dear …. god bless ya and our boys 2
      JJ we can’t be more proud of u dear … U R DE BEST <3 <3 <3

  6. Totally agree with Momma Chan. GO JYJ/TVXQ!
