Jaejoong won the "Planning Award / MUSIC PROJECTS OF THE YEAR" Award for the 61st Japan Record Awards with his album "Love Covers". This award is presented to “works” (including music videos) that were produced with original planning intentions, and produced results that contributed greatly to popular music. The ceremony will be broadcast live on December 30 at 5:30 JST.
Jaejoong will also appear for the second time on FNS Music Festival on December 4 at 18:30 JST. Last year he performed a Christmas medley with his good friend singer/actor Yu Shirota and a solo performance covering Forget me Not under the category medley of Ozaki Yutaka's hit songs. His performance was a hot topic and got a lot of attention from non-fans and fans from Ozaki Yutaka praising his vocals.
