Korean boy band JYJ makes history in Chile. As Korean pop music crosses the Pacific, JYJ becomes the first K-Pop group to perform in the South American country. More than 5,000 Chileans flocked to Santiago to see the trio - singing and dancing along to their hits. The young singers have just two studio albums, but already have a loyal and growing fan base in Asia and beyond. The group's pop sound with elements of dance and R&B kept the audience on their feet throughout the show. JYJ will continue their tour in Peru. Alicia Powell, Reuters.
