As the venue was not a concert hall and had no seating facilities, the attendants had to stand during the two-hour show. C-Jes Entertainment, the band's agency, booked over 3,500 hotel rooms in Seoul, Incheon and Suwon, and arranged 250 buses to accommodate the Japanese fans. "[JYJ] organized the event to repay fans' love," Baek Chang-hoo, the agency's president, said. "We'll keep coming up with plans to create fond memories for fans."
