[Video] JYJ′s Turkish Fans to Launch Pictures of JYJ Into Space
JYJ′s fans in Turkey will be sending JYJ to outer space.
As part of a large-scale photo exhibition project supported by a local bank, the fans will send up pictures and messages related to JYJ. They have released a YouTube video on the project, containing photos of a space travel certificate and information on the launch.
The materials will leave Earth on March 18.
Local fans told enews, "The rocket containing the capsule will take off on March 18. There isn′t much about the project online, but a Turkish bank will be supporting the project."
Enews has received confirmation from the bank hosting the event that it is true the materials will be launched into outer space, but they will not be attached to a rocket; they will be attached to a special balloon in USBs and CDs. It plans to film how the materials spread out after the balloon exits the atmosphere, then send back the videos showing the spectacle.
A rep from the Korea Culture Service in Turkey also told enews, "We′ve received information on the event. Fans of JYJ in the country entered an event, and will be sending their messages with photos of JYJ into space."
The rep added, "JYJ is the Korean group that has the biggest fan base in Turkey. Member Kim Jae Joong once was invited to a banquet by the President, and this contributed greatly to the spread and exchange of Korean culture in the country."
This is the first time fans will be sending materials related to a Korean singer into outer space.
JYJ is currently preparing for its upcoming Tokyo Dome concert.
