Idol group JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) are beginning the year with a great start.

JYJ came out on top in the idol section of KBS’ ’2011 Icon of the Year’ Awards, chosen through votes by netizens, and were given their award and a small gift on the 5th.

JYJ, who were receiving an award as a group for the first time in a while, stated, “It feels like our fans have given us a big New Year’s present. We’re really happy to have received such a meaningful award as JYJ and this award is more precious than any other,” and “We’ll repay this gift with even greater music than before.”

Last year, JYJ held solo concerts in Spain and Germany and were successful in their individual activities in the drama and acting industries.

Kim Jaejoong was awarded the New Star Award at the SBS Drama Awards and held a solo fanmeet in China. Park Yoochun won the Best Newcomer Award at the MBC Drama Awards and Kim Junsu will be performing in the musical ‘Elisabeth’ from February.

The group will begin their overseas activities again in March. They will be the first Korean idol group to hold a solo concert in Chile and Peru on the 9th and 11th of March respectively.
