JYJ, these cheerful young men in the middle of controversy.
“What’s your job?”
(The text was mostly about JUNSU’s soccer passion and on-line game skill)
After JAEJUNG and YUCHUN exchanged some jokes on JUNSU, a question of ‘XIAH-mori’ (playing teasing JUNSU) was asked.
JUNSU smiled and said, ” I enjoy it. I feel quite calm.”
JAEJUNG explained, ” JUNSU’s such a good-hearted man. Either YUCHUN or I may turn sulky or get upset if we got ‘mori’, but JUNSU just takes it with generosity.”

Showing creativity over the fence…
Extraordinary attachment on this album

Now, our creativity is put into from the very beginning of the underdrawing.
That’s why we feel extraordinary attachment on this self-produced album.” (JUNSU)

JYJ, “A code-like album with inside story of last two years”
JUNSU said, ” It means a lot to have a concert of our own name. We’d like to show high quality performance. I wondered if it could be possible when we started the tour in North America. However, now we are about to go Spain and Germany.”
When he was asked about the world tour he encouraged himself saying, ” We don’t want to settle for the present. Instead, we’d like to search for the breakthrough in ourselves.
We want different stimulus. We try to think positively though we feel some burden.

JYJ, having concerts of their own in Europe.
“Hope for another miracle is on the way”

JYJ, “Want to perform on TV. Please…give us support.”
JUNSU = We want to perform as singers in Korea also. It’s so sad that we cannot have chances to perform in Korea though we’re Korean. It was important to get No.1 on the chart (with newly released song) and take the No.1 prize (at the end of the year) before. Now it’s not. I don’t want to talk over that kind of things. We just want to share the stages fairly and perform on them. No opportunities at all. This situation is stifling. We will stand more tightly for each other and try to achieve the changes. We will make moves.

JYJ, How to communicate with fans with no appearance on TV music shows.
“We surely felt after the individual activities of each member. We kind of recognize our old fans and there were definitely new group of fans. It looks like a variety of fans are joining. They didn’t know we’re singers at first and then began to pay attention to our music. ” (JUNSU)

JYJ, ” ‘In Heaven’, the album with the memory and the inside story of last two years.”
“It feels so good. There was no promotion and the songs were already sung at the concerts. But people are buying the CDs. We do appreciate and feel great on their interest and idea to cherish our music. (laughs)

JYJ, ” We’re not escaping from TVXQ’s shadow.”
The highly reputed musical artist, KIM JUNSU played a cameo on ‘Scent of a woman’. SBS weekend drama.
” The exaggerated expression is need on the musical stage since there’s no concept of close-up. However, TV drama is a totally different thing. I found it’s not a field to rush for the challenge after I stayed up all night for shooting, anyway. (laughs).” (JUNSU)

Draw from the very bottom…Feel reassured thanks to the loyal fans
” I also liked musicals, but in fact, I want to keep on performing actively as a singer in Korea. I feel sad because I don’t have enough stages for singing in my own country. I don’t know since when, but TV music shows are like overseas programs to me. (laughs).” (JUNSU)

JYJ, “Evolved into producers, misfortune turned to advantage.”
-Do you feel at ease now? Is it possible to appear on TV with this album?
“We felt down with very little trouble before. Now vice-versa.
‘Releasing the album safely? Just awesome!’, ‘Our songs are on the chart? Just great!’ Frankly speaking, being on air is another story. From some moment, the music shows such as <Music Bank> are like overseas TV shows to us. Kind of feeling to download the overseas programs. ” (JUNSU)

JYJ, “We’re like aliens.”
“No one was sure if we could be on air while performing at the closing ceremony of IAAF World Championships in Daegu. Finally our performance was on TV across the country and everybody around us shed tears of joy. Ha ha~ and you cannot be an honorary ambassador only because you want to be. There have been lots of requests, and we will accept them with no condition for public benefit. We will also actively participate in donation or support for social organizations.” (KIM JUNSU)

JYJ, “We’re crazy about ‘this’ these days.”
” I accidently had a chance to play a cameo, joining the drama OST. I gave a thought for acting while I was watching these two members. However the thought just disappeared after seeing their sleepless shooting for days.” JUNSU said with laughs.
He boasted that soccer’s his thing. He said, ” I had 15 games in one month.” and added ” I had no celebrity friends before but now I became friends with KIM HYUNJOONG , LEE GIKWANG and YOON DUJUN of B2ST.”

JYJ,”Challenge for Singer-songwriter? We are and will be idols”

JYJ,” Standing alone? We are still ‘TVXQ’.”
“It was the first concert of our own in North America. We got confidence watching excited and happy people though we were so tensed. For the people in Europe, we’d like to be accepted with JYJ’s own music colors, not to adjust ourselves for them. I think this concert will be the first step. ” (JUNSU)

JYJ, “Love, friendship, longing and passion, we put them all into ‘In Heaven’.”
JYJ picked ‘Mission’ and ‘Fallen leaves’ that JUNSU made as the most memorable songs for example. JYJ said, ” JUNSU’s ‘Mission’ is the most performable song. We wanted to put that kind of song for the album. ‘Fallen leaves’ is the song that JUNSU made the melody first and then completed the lyrics at 2 or 3 am in Taiwan. The song expresses what we want to tell from the bottom of our hearts. ” with some emotional resonance.
JUNSU, the writer of ‘Fallen leaves’ mentioned, ” It’s a sad but simple-hearted song. I wanted it to be organized with some steps of bursting feelings. That’s why I set chorus three times. I wanted my members to sing the phrase, ‘Da-shi Shi-jak (meaning start over)’ that I heartily wished to deliver to the people among the lyrics.
That’s why I made that part repeated three times on purpose.”

JAEJUNG, YUCHUN, JUNSU ” Perform as JYJ in TVXQ”
KIM JUNSU said, ” I feel like the term, ‘idol’ has been used for dishonorable meaning only in Korea. ” and hoped, ” It’s changing with competent idols’ appearance these days. We’d like to show the diversity of our music rather than escaping from our idol identity.”
KIM JUNSU spoke clearly, ” I wish we could smile and think of these as just precious memories some day. We will keep on trying to grow more.”
