‘JYJ’s photos and messages to be collected in a USB and launched into space… The launch is scheduled for the 18th in Houston’
Group JYJ’s Turkish fans are planning to launch photos of Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu into space.
As part of a photography project funded by a local bank, JYJ’s Turkish fans will be sending photos of JYJ and messages from fans to the three singers into space on the 18th of March. JYJ’s Turkish fans recently uploaded a video on Youtube of the project and their space travel certificate.
Regarding the project, the Turkish fans stated to eNEWS that, “The rocket with the capsule will be launched on the 18th of March. Though there hasn’t been much information revealed on the internet, a Turkish bank is funding the project.”
Regarding the project in question, the local bank confirmed to eNEWS that the message will be launched into space on the 18th of March, but also revealed that the USB and CD with the photos and messages will be attached to a specially created balloon, and not a rocket. The bank is planning to film a video of the messages being scattered through space after the balloon is launched.
Though a balloon is not the equivalent of a rocket, it is enough to express the meaningful notion of sending the fans’ wishes and dreams for JYJ through images and photos into space.
A representative of Turkey’s Korean culture centre stated in a phone conversation with eNEWS that, “We’ve confirmed the details in question. It is true that JYJ’s Turkish fans submitted their application for the event and have been chosen to send messages and photos of JYJ into space.”
The representative stated, “JYJ are the Korean singers with the most fans in Turkey. JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong was once invited to a dinner at the presidential palace in Turkey and this greatly aided the cultural exchange between the two countries.”
In 2010, Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul was given a star as a gift from his international fans, while Jang Woo Hyuk, a former member of H.O.T, and Jang Nara were given parts of the moon. However, this will be the first time that fans send photos of and messages for their favorite stars into space.
