140415 “3Days” Park, Yoochun’s fans go to crazy lengths to show their love.
JYJ’s Park Yoochun, starring in the drama “Three Days,” has brought about a magnificent fandom for the ‘Tae man’ in China, once again realizing the scope of his popularity.
On April 15, C-JeS Entertainment said, “In China, Park Yoochun’s popularity is explosive. Putting together ‘Tae’ from his ‘Three Days’ character name Han Tae Kyung and the word ‘man,’ the term ‘Tae man’ was coined. On major Chinese portal site Baidu, the members in Park Yoochun’s fan community number 230,000.”
Such is the power of the lead actor in a series. With Park Yoochun’s popularity, fans in China gathered roughly 200 million won (approx.. $192,000) and bought a billboard by the front gate of a shopping center in Beijing. On the billboard that spans roughly 10,700 square feet, the fans wrote, “365 days, 8760 hours, 525600 minutes, 31536000 seconds. We want to see you every single day. We hope Yoochun’s new drama ‘Three Days’ becomes a huge hit, and we congratulate you in advance.”
Moreover, a Chinese “aunt fan” club for Park Yoochun even sent a coffee truck to the set of “Three Days” on a cold day, taking care of not only Park Yoochun, but all of the staff, as well.
The total view count for the drama has hit over 300 million between Youku and Tudou, and Park Yoochun’s old 2012 drama “Rooftop Prince” made it all the way back up to seventh place.

Another fandom rant
2008 was 6 years ago. People change. People get older, and while JYJ used to be the 3 of rising GODS of the east, I think this fandom often forgets that they are actually mortals, who age like everyone else.
You can’t expect them to look exactly like they did six years ago.
Which brings me to my main point. Saying that Jaejoong looks like an addict because he’s so thin is horrible imo.
Jaejoong’s NOT an ornament for your visual enjoyment, he’s a person just like you. I wish his fans didn’t have such a strong sense of entitlement over him, his image, over what they think is best for him.
What if he was satisfied with his own body? Constantly telling him he’s too thin, and that he needs to eat more is the same as constantly drawing attention to the size of a ‘fat’ person (that’s deemed rude and unacceptable in society btw). It could have by now given him body image issues.
I mean, he’s even tried gaining weight because his fans were skinny-shaming him.
UGH, this fandom sucks a lot sometimes. Some people find it real hard to gain weight, you know?
I used to suffer from anorexia and was sickly thin, so much thinner than Jaejoong now. I know what I’m talking about.
Stop comparing him to what he used to be. 2008 is long gone. So is the Mirotic era Jaejoong. But as an artist he’s still as talented, if not more than before. doesn’t that account for something?
also, jyj don’t have to be around each other 24/7 for them to be friends. i rarely see my best friends cause we all went to different countries for studies and now live in different countries. i know, different circumstances, but you catch my drift. that doesn’t mean the friendship isn’t there. i wish fans would stop cheapening their bond with their doubts just because jyj as individuals, have different aspirations and are all focusing on their solo careers nowadays.
this is my opinion. feel free to ignore or disagree.
Of course it’s marvelous! I found it very amazing! He’s the hyung I know about since I was little. It’s very amazing to meet him in real life. He just sits next to me and we do this together. I think it’s really amazing.
