JYJ has been appointed as the ambassadors for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.
The Asian Games committee announced, “In order to spread awareness of the Asian Games, especially overseas, we chose JYJ to be the ambassadors for the 2014 Asian Games because of their massive popularity all over the world.”
From 2011 to 2012, JYJ visited a total of 15 cities all around the world during their world tour and met with countless fans, proving their worldwide fame. JYJ has experience with being the ambassadors for several organizations such as UNAIDS and the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit.
Last June, JYJ held a fan expo, which attracted over 7,000 Japanese fans. This set a record for the most foreigners to enter Korea for a one-day event.
Kim Young Soo of the Asian Games Committee commented, “With JYJ as the ambassadors of the 2014 Asian Games, we hope that the Asian Games will successfully be known to the 4 billion Asians in the world.”
JYJ will attend the ambassador appointment ceremony on February 20.
