After the successful run of his The Rebirth of J concert tour and TV series Manhole, South Korean boyband JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong was set on to another journey with his fans through a series of fanmeetings across Asia.
While Hong Kong, Taipei, and Bangkok were usual stops in previous concerts and fanmeetings, Manila was (finally!) included in this tour. Here are 5 reasons why you should not miss Kim Jaejoong’s fanmeeting in Manila, Philippines:
1. It’s a first!
Remember that Ramodo CF from 2006 shot in Makati City and SM Mall of Asia? Yes, that’s the first time Kim Jaejoong has been in the Philippines with Kim Junsu, Park Yoochun, Shim Changmin, and Jung Yunho. Since then, fans have been wishing for Manila to be one of the stops in one of their concerts and fanmeetings and that was more than a decade since!
And because of that, the fanmeeting happening on November 30, 2017 at Smart Araneta Coliseum will be Jaejoong’s first activity in the Philippines. First impression lasts and Jaejoong sincerely hopes to create a special memory with his fans as a singer, actor, and as a man so let’s make this fanmeeting as memorable and wonderful as possible!
2. English as the primary language
Have you had enough of don’t-know-what-he-is-talking-about, laugh-when-everyone-laughs, and all these language barriers during events? Worry no more! English is considered as an official language in the Philippines.
It’s only in Manila where the translator and host will be speaking in English among all the fanmeeting stops. By attending the fanmeeting here, you will likely meet English-speaking friends, too! How cool is that?
3. Overwhelming venue size and fan projects and giveaways
Jaejoong’s fanmeeting in Manila will be held at “The Big Dome”, which has a seating capacity of 16,500! According to the seat plan released earlier, the set-up for #JaejoongInManila can accommodate 7,179 people!
For reference, Kyunghee University Grand Peace Palace in Seoul has 4,500 seats, National Taiwan University Stadium in Taipei has 4,200 seats, KITEC Star Hall in Hong Kong has 3,600 seats, Thunder Dome in Bangkok has 5,000 seats, and Musashino Forest Sport Plaza in Tokyo has 6,000 seats.
Aside from that, there are several fansites who prepared fan projects and giveaways to make this fanmeeting extra special. Cassiopeia Philippines, Cassiopeia Mindanao, Cassiopeia Cebu, Kim Jaejoong Philippines, and of course All About Cassiopeia, to name a few!
4. Interaction with Jaejoong
COME ON, IT’S KIM JAEJOONG IN FLESH! Some of us may have seen him a couple of times but there are those of us who waited since time in memorial to see Jaejoong alive and kicking.
If you have tuned in to updates from the Seoul and Taipei legs, you would have an idea how awesome this fanmeeting tour has been and would have been. The fanmeeting would have segments such as ‘Truth or Dare’, ‘Knowing Jaejoong’, and ‘Follow the Dance Moves’. Your fangirl hearts will truly swoon once we hear him sing classics like “Forgotten Season”, see him dance old but gold songs like “Rising Sun” and “The Way U Are”.
You may also get the chance to have your poster handsigned by Jaejoong!
5. Because it’s KIM. JAE. JOONG!
