The JYJ Lovers in the Philippines held an event last Sunday, January 19, 2014 at the Drake Room of Discovery Suites in Ortigas to celebrate Kim Jaejoong’s 29th birthday. An announcement was made about a week and a half before the party and all the slots were immediately filled prompting us to request the venue to accommodate more guests.
On the day of the party, fans came early for registration. We were still setting up the venue with tarpaulin, posters, pictures, balloons, cake table, props, and prizes when attendees started arriving. Early birds were so eager to help us out. It was a fangirling, fandom bonding moment.
The program started with a prayer for Jaejoong’s good health and continued success. The afternoon was filled with fun and laughter as the attendees actively participated in the JAE-themed games prepared by the admins. The first game that took place was caled “JAEconda Match”. Chosen contestants were given the task to move the match box using eggplants tied to their waists by yarns. The first team that accomplished the task were declared winners. The next game was called “Pass the JAE Message” where participants were asked to pass the message from the lead by using gestures. The messages were actually number significant to Jaejoong – like his age and birthdate. The last game was called “Trip to J-Holic”, more like the usual Trip to Jerusalem game, with a twist. The participants were asked to dance and move like Jaejoong while his songs were playing, the admins moved the chairs around so that the contestants will also have the task of locating these seats. The winners were glad to have received lots of prizes. Raffle was conducted at intervals were prizes like TM Clear files, Jaejoong Poster, Chibi socks, JJ Tarpaulins and major prizes like MINE and WWW Albums were given away.
We had group photos taken to greet Kim Jaejoong. Snacks were provided while the song selection from the Kim Jaejoong Your, My & Mine 2013 Mini Concert & Fan Meeting DVD was being played on screen. After some refreshments, we had a greeting portion wherein each attendee introduced herself and narrated to us how they became a Jaejoong/JYJ fan. It was interesting and fun to listen especially how families and friends bonded simply because of JYJ fandom.
The dress code for the event was ‘Kim Jaejoong’ as requested by the celebrant himself for his concerts in Nagoya and Seoul. We’ve chosen 3 guests who dressed up for the occasion and the winner who happened to be the youngest attendee was voted as best in costume. She got a Nii shirt similar to what JJ has worn. So cute!
It was delightful afternoon and absolutely all about Jaejoong. Everyone took photos of the cake table and props. We sang the Happy Birthday song in Korean, blew the candles before cutting and sharing the photocake for dessert. Each one received a J Party cupcake that had a pull out charm and JJ quote. Souvenir key chains were also given away as well as hard copy of 3R photos of THE handsome and sexy Jaejoong.
We collected fan letters and fan gifts to be brought to Seoul by the admins of “JYJ Lovers in the Philippines” when they attend Jaejoong’s birthday concert on the 26th of January. We’re so grateful to everyone who joined this event.
Continue supporting Jaejoong/JYJ and JYJ Lovers in the Philippines. Fans make everything DAE-TO-THE-BAK!!!

Last December 12, 2013, we implemented Phases 3 and 4 of our Charity Relief Project. Phase 3 was implemented via cash donation given to World Vision Philippines. We donated Ten Thousand Philippine Pesos for the Earthquake victims and another Ten Thousand Philippine Pesos for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda.
World Vision Philippines aims to gather resources to assist 1.2 million people (240,000 families) with food, non-food items, hygiene kits, emergency shelter, and protection, especially for children and women. We hope that our donation will help out this organization in carrying out its relief operations.
Phase 4 was implemented via cash donation in the amount of Twenty Thousand Pesos to Good Neighbors Philippines, which is a branch of Good Neighbors International in Korea, the organization being supported by our beloved JYJ via their Nii endorsement. We were warmly welcomed by its Country Director, Mr. Ann, Hung Goo.
Good Neighbors Philippines is focused on the rehabilitation of the cities affected by the Typhoon Yolanda. They launched the “Scool-based Child Friendly Space” Project to bring both the teachers and students back to the learning mode. The Project aims to give priority to children’s well-being and the fulfilment of their rights even in disasters, that is, the rights to education and protection. In consultation with the Department of Education-Eastern Samar Division Office, two schools were identified as beneficiaries of the project. Guiuan Central Elementary School (GCES) and Sulangan Central Elementary School (SCES) will receive school tents, teacher’s tables and chairs, arm chairs, movable white board, and school supplies between December 2013 and January 2014. The number of target beneficiaries is 2000 primary school students.
As of December 12, eighteen school tents for Guiuan Central Elementary School and twelve for Sulangan Central Elementary School have been installed. Additional 20 school tents will be provided in January 2014.
The project also includes the construction of six classrooms, inter-agency psychosocial activities, 100-day feeding program, and WASH promotion—all to be implemented in January 2014
Both organizations have expressed their deep gratitude to JYJ and JYJ Family.
Because of the overwhelming support we have received from our JYJ Family, we are happy to announce that we will have another implementation Phase. Phase 5 will cater to the displaced families from Leyte who were transported to Manila. Currently there are 52 families and 70 children at Jose Fabella Medical Center.
We shall keep you posted as we conclude our Charity Relief Project.
Once again, we express our gratitude and love to all of you. All these won’t be possible without our loving JYJ Family.
