[NEWS] 120820 JYJ’s Mario Kart Event Ended Successfully
JYJ’s Nintendo Korea Mario Kart Event was held at Yonsei University’s Centennial Memorial Concert Hall on Aug. 19.
As the campaign models of Nintendo 3DS’s Mario Kart 7, JYJ spent the time with participants in various programs such as racing, talkshow and quiz section.
In the first part of the event, 39 participants who had passed the preliminary rounds competed with each other. Each finalist then played the game with JYJ in the latter half of the event.
JYJ also selected a few participants and then split themselves into groups to play the balloon battle and the Mario Kart racing game. The winning team won JYJ autographed items.
When asked if the falling-off-the-chair scene in the advertisement was an act, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong said: “It was not an act and it was a real-life situation. I was rather hopeful that it would be used in the advertisement,” provoking the audience’s laughter.
During the quiz section, JYJ fans did not encounter any problems in answering questions about the seating arrangement of the JYJ members in the advertisement and the Mario Kart 7 game.
