[NEWS] 110927 Junsu Speaks About Soccer and JYJ

Reporter Jung Ha-youn of MBC Sports recently secured an interview with one of the JYJ trio,Kim Junsu.

Junsu epitomizes the adage “All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy”, as he has managed to deliver excellent performances both on stage and on the soccer field. Junsu is a well known player for and director of celebrity soccer club F.C. Men, and has also earned MVP honors during their last tournament. At the same time, with the recent release of their first Korean album, In Heaven, promotions are at an all time high and it is no mean feat to balance the two. However, Junsu claims that, since he loves both aspects of his life, he is able to deliver that powerful performance in both fields. He also thanked his fans for their constant support and cheers.

Check out the complete conversation below.

Jung Ha-youn, Reporter: Let us now meet with F.C. Men’s director, Kim Junsu. Hello!

Kim Junsu: Hello!

Reporter: F.C. Men finished the first round of the tournament [Peace Star Cup 2011; the first round occurred in May – ed.] ranked #1. What are your outlooks for the second round?

Junsu: It’s difficult for us to project at the moment. We just plan to play as hard as we did last round.

Reporter: Last round, you scored a goal and earned MVP honors. What are your personal goals for the second round?

Junsu: I want to be able to play in all of our games. Last round, I was disappointed because I could only play in one game; this time, I hope our schedule works out so that I can play in all three matches. I’d be content with just that.

Reporter: Recently, you released a new album – JYJ’s In Heaven is garnering immense popularity right now. The songs are really great!

Junsu: Thank you.

Reporter: Isn’t it difficult for you physically to play soccer while also promoting your album?

Junsu: Of course, when the promotional activities start in earnest, it’ll be more difficult to play. But it’s something that I love, so I’m always trying to be able to do both.

Reporter: Many fans from both Korea and Japan have attended today’s game to root for you. A word for them?

Junsu: First of all, I feel somewhat bad for making my fans come all the way to a soccer field. But I’m grateful that they have come to root for me, and I’ll try my best to play hard and not get hurt. Thank you.

Reporter: Thoughts or resolutions going into the game?

Junsu: All of us playing today are entertainers… so I want us to play safe and play fair, and just have a great game.

Reporter: Hoping for a good match today.

Junsu: Sure. Thank you!

Reporter: That was Kim Junsu, director of FC Men.

[Trans] Music critic Noh Junyoung’s review on In Heaven

[Trans] Music critic Noh Junyoung’s review on In Heaven

In fact, the epithet ‘idol’ is a double-edged sword. To someone, it could be a real ‘idol’, but to someone, it could be a subject to prejudice. The idol fever that swept the whole world traces back to the 80s. On August 1st 1981, the pop music world changed as a lot of idols with fine appearances started to pour out when MTV, a station that airs music vidoes for 24 hours, was founded. Of course they each had star qualities and singing abilities, but it was true that somehow their appearance attraced more attention. This kind of prejudice is still valid. In many cases, for an idol, people expect a lower level of musical ability. However, as a lot of talented idols showed up, the twisted attitude is slowly disappearing, and ‘TVXQ’ is one of the artists who contributed largely to this situation. All of the members produced high quality, classy music. Eventually they gripped the whole Asian markets, and also guided the idol groups to the right path. In a bigger picture, they created a new methodology for singers to benchmark.

Their fans must have been more sorry for what had happened to them because of these reasons(he’s talking about the lawsuit). JYJ is still the most talented among idol groups in existence. This is becuase the collaboration of Jaejoong, Junsu, and Yoochun, who possesses singing, performance, and entertaining ablilities, is on the basis. They could target the worldwide market with their first album [The Beginning] because they were confident of their abilities. Isn’t it proved that their possiblities to comepete in the American market was confirmed, as the best hiphop producer Kanye West lent his voice without hesitation? There are three points to focus on [In Heaven], released in this kind of situation, when even spatial constraints are collapsing. Whether a Korean album-not an English one to target the worldwide market-can appeal as a hit keywod, if they can compete with only their music without enough appearance on TV, and if the music is good enough to cover three members’ singing ability. When you listen to all the songs of [In Heaven], you’ll get an answer of these three points easier than you thought.

The first thing we must focus on is that the members participated in every song in the album, taking a step forward to an musician. The single fact that they directly participated in the album and showed their leadership is a part that should be highly appreciated. It is a nice evidence that they are making an effort to be accepted as artists. In addition, since the members demonstrated their sense of trend that they felt during the tour, it is needless to comment on their possibilities. ‘Get Out’, produced by Jaejoong and Yoochun, is a trendy pop dance song. The lively composition and the texture of the sound makes the members’ charm stand out even more, and furthermore, as shocking shouting vocals were added, it became a nice song with a strong feeling. You can feel JYJ’s Asian sensitivity in ‘In Heaven’, ‘Fallen Leaves’, and ‘Boy’s Letter’. Especially the appeal in the climax of ‘In Heaven’, the nostalgic sensitivity of ‘Fallen Leaves’, and the unusual composition of ‘Boy’s Letter’ are outstanding. Because these songs have both the nostalgia for the past and the goal of present, you can meet the longing feeling and the delight at the same time.

Different from the former songs, ‘Mission’ and ‘I.D.S’ shows future-oriented aspects. ‘Mission’ with the powerful beat, and ‘I.D.S’ with the auto-tune technique, both has the trendy American sounds. Especially the addictive sound of ‘I.D.S’ is very high-leveled, and in my opinion it would recieve favorable responses even if it is released in the American market. ‘You’re’ and ‘Pierrot’ are pop dance songs with medium tempo, better if you watch the performance. Especially, ‘Pierrot’ refreshes the listeners’ logic by the ironic composition with pretty shocking lyrics, craving for freedom, and a bright melody. ‘Nine’ is a retro-stlye song, also a song that you must listen to. It is hard to define clearly, but ‘Nine’ kind of shows the old sound from the Britpop scene, and is a well made song that can gain sympathy from a whole generation. If [The Beginning] showed a beat centered sound with the American trend at the basis, [In Heaven] has a character capable of gripping domestic and Asian sentiment, emphasizing melodies. Their goal changed as they went through an ablum, but the quality is still high. The innate talent and musical instruments they have is unchanged, even though their target has changed.

I want to say JYJ’s new album is a ‘raw’ thing. The most honest stories and the most honest sounds of the members are realized in the album. In addition, their own songs, composed with understanding of various genres, are quite good in quality. Even though there are points lacking slightly in the overall composition of the album, I feel no need to mention it, since it is not about the quality of the music. Their musical ability is already beyond the highest level. The musical possibility that these men, JYJ who macthes with the term artist rather than idol, can show has just started.

JYJ Creates a Storm of Popularity for Digital Music Without Broadcast. “Recognition as Singer-Songwriter”

Group JYJ’s first Korean language album In Heaven is receiving a heated response despite the lack of any particular broadcast related to music.

As soon as all of the songs of In Heaven were released on the midnight of the 15th, all of them ranked highly on the charts.

An affiliate of the JYJ’s record relayed his thoughts: “We are surprised at the tremendous response as compared to only having concentrated on performing and not doing any broadcast activities including appearing on music programs. It seems that the public has been awaiting for JYJ to release a domestic album to this degree.”

The biggest particularity of this album by JYJ is that it is made up of the self-created songs by the members. The affiliate revealed: “Through this album JYJ tried to prove their abilities as singer-songwriters and also their niche unique to them through the harmony that blends the attractive vocals of the three members.”

JYJ explained their current album: “We feel that it would be good for you to think of it as an “autumn love song”, JYJ version. Our work centered around the songs that had poetic melodies and lyrics that stood out.”

They added: “We wanted to gift a good memory for the many of you who are always by our side waiting for our music.” JYJ is expressing a special affection for the fans through Boy’s Letter and You’re.

On the other hand, the music video for In Heaven with Kim Junsu and actress Song Jihyo was released along with the release of the digital music. This music video which is filled with the ardent acting by Kim Junsu and Song Jihyo and beautiful scenes plans to showcase in the future the “full video” which is a 10-minute version.
