[NEWS] JYJ Are Chosen To Be The Honorary Ambassadors Of The 2013 Incheon Asian Games “Unrivaled Popularity”


JYJ (Kim Junsu, Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong) have been chosen as the honorary ambassadors of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.

The Asian Games Committee stated on the 19th that, “We have chosen JYJ, who have an unrivaled popularity in Asia, as the honorary ambassadors of the Asian Games in order to increase awareness for the event and to spur our overseas promotion in the Asian region.”

JYJ have already proved their popularity overseas through their two-year long world tour that began in 2011, passed through 15 cities and met with 210,000 fans around the world. Their work as the goodwill ambassadors for UNAIDS in the Asia and Pacific region, as well as their work as the honorary ambassadors of the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit qualifies them for their next role as the honorary ambassadors of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.

Kim Young Soo, the president of the Asian Games Committee, happily stated, “We are expecting the games to begin and end in success as JYJ’s role will not only raise awareness of JYJ’s global popularity, but also of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games to the 4 billion people of the Asian population.”

An event will be held on the 20th to commemorate JYJ’s appointment and they will then begin activities to promote the games.
