By now, most people know that Jaejoong loves to cook and probably would have been a chef or owned his own restaurant if he weren’t a singer.
During his 3 hour Shanghai fan meeting event on March 17, 5,000 lucky fans got to not only hear him sing by watch him cook a quick dish.
510,000 fans from all over the world participated in the LINE chat with Jaejoong on March 11 (KST). LINE is a Naver app (for Smartphones, PC and Mac) which lets people communicate with each other.
There were 50,000 comments in real time and 20,000 applicants to be chosen to meet Jaejoong in real life. Fans from 32 countries participated in the event.
500,000 fans participated in the event of drawing a picture with the characteristics of their specific countries onto Jaejoong’s photo.
Using LINE is a way for the artists to get directly to the fans via a familiar platform.
Jaejoong will be on the first online global fan meeting through LINE, according to new reports from Naver.com
The event is scheduled for March 11 2013 between 8PM and 9PM Korean Standard Time. South Korea is about 15 hours ahead of us. To convert that, it’ll be about 6AM EST when the event starts (Daylight savings “Spring forward” time will have started in the US by then).
The live chat will give participants a chance to win an autographed CD and a LINE doll.
You’ll need to download Line and add JYJ onto your official LINE account.
