JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong to hold an independent fan meeting in Turkey
JYJ member Kim Jaejoong (26) will be holding an independent fan meeting in Turkey on February 5th (local time).
On February 3rd, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism revealed that Jaejoong would be holding his fan meeting at Ankara University in Turkey.
This fan meet will be a good way to help spread Hallyu awareness and enhance cultural exchanges between the two countries. Tickets for the fan meeting were sold as a first come, first served basis and tickets for all 600 seats sold out on the Korean Embassy in Ankara website within half an hour.
“We could see the effect of Hallyu in Turkey, as more than 2,000 people applied to attend the fan meeting within a few hours,” the Embassy said. “We received incessant phone calls from people who did not get selected.”
Leading Turkish newspaper Milliyet also reported about the fan meeting on February 1st, and introduced not only Jaejoong but JYJ as a whole in much detail.
A Korean drama aired in Turkey for the very first time in 2005, and there has been significant interest in K-pop and Korean culture ever since.
Turkey also is home to a fan club entitled ‘Korea Fans’, which currently has over 40,000 active members.
Any of our Turkish readers going to be at the fan meet? Let us know below!
