Singer and actor Kim Jaejoong was met with an explosive response from Hong Kong press before his concert.
Kim Jaejoong flew to the Hong Kong International Airport on the 23rd for ‘Your, My and Mine in Hong Kong’, the Hong Kong leg of his Asia tour.
The singer changed plans and took a different exit to secure the safety of his fans who were at the airport, but the new exit was soon flooded by fans and reporters, showing just how popular Kim Jaejoong is in Hong Kong. What was most astounding was the competition amongst 30 different media reporters to catch Kim Jaejoong on camera.
Kim Jaejoong was featured on the first page of Oriental Daily News, a major Hong Kong newspaper, on the 24th with an article on his arrival in Hong Kong. The famous portal site Sina recorded footage at the airport to show the extent of the singer’s popularity. During this video, Sina stated, “There were so many people at the airport that it was difficult to obtain this footage.”
A press conference was held before the concert at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong and around 30 different media companies were in attendance, including Apple daily, Headline daily and TVB8. The reporters expressed their high anticipation for Kim Jaejoong’s concert and responded positively to his witty replies.
Kim Jaejoong stated, “This is my first solo concert in Hong Kong. This is something I’ve personally been waiting for, for a long time. I’ve become energized by all the people who have come to support me since my arrival. I’d like to create some great memories to share with everyone who comes to the concert.”
Meanwhile, Kim Jaejoong successfully completed his concert at 7pm on the 24th at the HKCEC, and will continue his Asia tour in Nanjing, China and Taiwan on the 6th and 13th of April respectively.
