[NEWS] 121117 JYJ Receives Commendation Award From The Ministry Of Knowledge And Economy At ‘KBEE 2012′ In Osaka, Japan


JYJ has received the Commendation of the Minister award at the opening ceremony of ’KBEE 2012 (Korea Brand & Entertainment Expo)‘ held in Japan.

The boys of JYJ were previously appointed as ambassadors for ‘KBEE 2012‘.

The opening of the expo was held at the INTEX International Exhibition Center in Osaka, Japan, on November 15th, and many representatives from government facilities such as the Ministry of Knowledge and Economy, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and other officials were in attendance along with JYJ.

JYJ received this prestigious honor because they had been judged as the top Hallyu stars that are active and have the most influence in all branches of culture. One major contributing factor accounted for was that their 15-city world tour brought in more than 210,000 fans. They also helped draw in many Japanese fans to visit Korea through their various activities.

At the event, JYJ commented, “We were happy because it seemed like many fans loved our music and Korea through our concerts and fan meetings. It means a lot for us to receive this award, and we will be even better with improved activities.”
