JYJ: Hello, we are JYJ.
JJ: Yeah, our Yuchun is enormously active nowadays. He is riding high.
JJ: The name~ the title is~
JaeSu: Rooftop Prince
JJ: What is the secret? The reason why every drama you do has high popularity
YC: What? Probably…uh… I think this is because of fans’ loves. (TN: direct, word-by-word translation will be “I think this is because you are looking at me beautifully.”)
JS: I really think. You are Lee Gak, the role there
(RTP). Really Lee Gak-ssi’s (TN: ‘-ssi’ is honorific. It means Mister. So it can be also translated as Mister Lee Gak)
YC: What is Lee Gak-ssi? Lee Gak-ssi? (What is Mister Lee Gak? Mister Lee Gak?)
JS: You drink something even in those important scenes. Sucking
JS: I think you look really handsome.
YC: (Drinking) something sweet
JS: Yes. (You are) always (drinking) something sweet praiseworthy.
YC: Did you even watch it?
JS: Ah. Of course,
YC: Until which episode did you watch?
JS: Honestly, now Chapter 6. (TN: Junsu said ‘Yuk Hwa’)
YC: Chapter 6? Episode 6 (TN: Yuchun said ‘Yuk Hwa?’ ‘Yuk Hoe’)
JJ: You did not say Episode 6 but said Chapter 6
JS: Episode 6. (TN: ‘Hwa’ and ‘Hoe’ both can mean episode. ‘Hwa’ is usually used for episodes & chapters of drama, novel, and etc. while ‘Hoe’ is usually used for episodes of drama/films, or innings for sports)
JJ: Is it Aesop’s Fables?
JS: I watched until episode 6, but I will watch until the end. Yes.
JJ: Of course.
JS: It is indisputable that it is the most popular thing nowadays.
JJ: Oh~ yes. Everyone talks about this.
JS: People around me also only talk about Rooftop Prince.
JS: I became a fifth wheel nowadays.
JJ: You must be really following according to the title. Because it is Rooftop, the popularity is increasing and Crown Prince is continuously loved.
JS: Wouldn’t be better to change the title to The Crown Prince on Sky’ later?
JJ: If the title was ‘Basement King Beggar,’ the popularity would have decreased and
YC: Basement, basement king beggar
JJ: If it was basement,
JS: Basement Prince
JJ: it might have been screwed up.
JS: *laugh* Basement Prince
JJ: And, Junsu will finish the musical soon
YC: And also
JS: By the time the video clip gets released, I might have already finished it.
JJ: And solo album
JS: Yes. I finished preparing the solo album and I am practicing right now.
JJ: Ah~ I think he/it is really amazing.
YC: We heard Junsu’s songs.
JJ: I heard it.
YC: As expected
JJ: He is genius. To be honest, this cannot be possible.
YC: Junsu… I really for sure think Junsu’s voice is a gift by the heaven/sky.
JJ: His parents are the heaven/sky.
YC: Oh. Yes.
JJ: I also gave a song.
YC: I heard it.
JS: That is right.
JJ: I think my song is the worst.
JS: Personally, I love Jaejoong-hyung’s song a lot.
YC: How many songs are included?
JS: 12 tracks
YC: You can just say songs.
JJ: 12 tracks
YC: Do you have to say tracks?
JS: 12 tracks~
JJ: Track~ Oh~ Yeah~
YC: 12 track~
YC: What is the number of Jaejoong-hyung’s song?
JS: Number 4
YC: It is not yet (decided)… number 4?
JJ: Why the 4 of death? (TN: In Korean, 4 (sa) sounds like one of words which means ‘death (sa).’ It has different pronunciation from another word meaning ‘death (jeukum), which is also name of JS’s role in ‘Elisabeth’)
JJ: Why the 4 of death?
YC: the 4 of death
JS: I didn’t mean that. It was originally third one but intro was added.
YC: Number 4 is better than number 3 for the flow.
JS: Yes. I chose looking at the flow of whole album and the songs.
YC: Did you write ‘Thanks To’?
JS: There is no ‘Thanks To’ this time.
YC: There is another one that we have to celebrate. Jaejoong-hyung’s drama and
JS: and movie
YuSu: at the same time~
JJ: Aigoo. I am going to die.
YC: You will have a thorny path/ hard time.
JS: Just doing drama is enormous.
YC: and hard.
JS: but also film. Are you well prepared?
JJ: No. Well. While choosing the piece, I had rather long resting period, but after much twists and turns, I decided to go for them with the energy I reserve while I was resting, although I know it will be hard to do both at once.
YC: The filming (drama)…today…will be the day after tomorrow. I know your first filming day will be May 2nd…Wow… You will really..
JS: I am curious about one thing. It is a historical drama
YC: die/suffer enormously. Really.
JS: It is a historical drama
YC: You might get osteoporosis.
JS: Haha. How will be your hair style?
JJ: I will have topknot for the hair.
YC: What about moustache?
JJ: I will not put them on.
YC: The moustache until here
JJ: I will not stick them on.
JS: I think it (moustache) will suit you well… are you a slave?
JS: Are you a farmhand?
JJ: I am going to a singer in the film.
JJ: I will show my natural parts and also when I was a trainee 8 or 9 years ago in the past in the film. So, there will be little bit tacky/countrified Hip Hop style too.
JS: Oh~ What is the genre exactly? Of the film? Is it action?
YC: Please explain
JJ: It is a romantic comedy but with many actions.
JS: I will look forward to it.
YC: We, JYJ, will have many individual activities. You will have many chances to see us as individuals too. Also, we are planning to see you with JYJ album. Please give lots of love.
JJ: One more thing. About our JYJ fan exposition.
YuSu: Oh~ Right! Right.
JJ: We are,personally, also expecting a lot.
JS: Jaejoong-hyung is preparing for the surprise visit.
YC: That’s right. Correct. Although he will be really busy,
YC: It will be when he will be really busy
JS: How can he not go once when fans are coming…
JJ: To be honest, am I the only one going? Are you guys not going?
JS: Jaejoong-hyung said he will be the only one going.
YC: You told us not to come.
JJ: When did I say that? Me and everyone should go together.
YC: Okay. If Jaejoong-hyung comes, we’ll go too.
YC: We will go, promise.
JS: Something we are certain is that Jaejoong-hyung will go there for sure.
JJ: Please come and visit because it will be an event with many interesting stories, looks, objects, memories. Please come. We will work harder. Please cheer for us. Until now,
JYJ: We were JYJ. Thank you.

[Description for each song in Junsu’s solo album – Tarantallegra] Full
An intro that lets the spell ‘Tarantallegra’ start.
02. Tarantallegra (Feat.Flowsik Of Aziatix)
The title track of Xia 1st album ‘Tarantallegra’, which is a magic spell that makes people dance, is a sensational dance track. While it is composed and arranged by Xiah himself, his brother JUNO was the one who wrote its lyrics. With the harmony of a strong beat and stringed instruments, it conveys the mystical power of magic and casts a dreamy magic spell just like its title. While Aziatix’s Flowsik is featured in the rap part, the choreography team of Jeri Slaughter and his co-workers, who have worked with Christina Aguilera before, will add the splendor to its performance. Now, let’s listen then fell into Xiah’s magical spell !
03. Set Me Free (Feat Bizzy)
The genre of ‘Set Me Free’ is Hands Up, an electro genre which is popular in Europe. Xia and Fraktal composed and wrote its lyrics together. With a high-tempo of Bpm 135, it is distinguished with an intoxicated repeated rhythm that will make the audience breathe along. The trance style of the synthesizer and the intense riff of rock guitar are mixed together into a club-beat. Plus, the chorus and main vocal will produce a dramatic voice-drama and add more briliance to the refrain.
04. No Gain
This is a gift track from JYJ’s member Kim Jaejoong in order to support Xia’s solo album. With a sweet melody flavored with a dance beat that create a R&B dance track, the song compliments more Xia’s singing ability. It is a polished song that expresses the loneliness after separation. Particularly, Kim Jaejoong participated directly in vocal directing and the chorus to show a close friendship.
05. I hate love
Kim Junsu worked with the composer Jeon Haesung for the first time in a standard slow song which shows his own capability and proves once again that he is the national best vocalist. With a dim piano theme over a bass clarinet riff, an addictive melody and touching lyrics combined together in an impressive ethnic ballad. Just like that, a musical masterpiece was created.
06.Around and around
With a combination of an oriental arranging style and electric musical instruments to create an established oriental feeling, this song takes a great part in contributing to the diversity of this album and shows another different musical sense of Xiah. Xiah’s husky yet mystical voice, a spendid string effect and beautiful lyrics about love are combined together and bring a beautiful impression to the listeners.
This track is the Korean version of ‘Intoxication’ which was at 2nd place on the Oricon chart on the first day being released in Japan. As a R&B song that acccentuates a sexy feeling, with a guitar rendition of guitarist Hong Junho in this Korean version, the song was reborn with a more fantastic feeling and excellent sound.
08. Breath (Feat.Double K)
Do you still remember JYJ’s strong dance song ‘Mission’? Let’s listen to Xiah’s ‘Breath’ which was created in the same strong theme. Xiah has composed this song as ‘Mission 2’ with string instruments and strong beat. Also, the talent Double K was featured in its rap part and added up a more manly effect to the song.
09. Although I know
As a collaboration between composer Kim Sejin and PJ, ‘Although I know’ has a sentimental vibe with beautiful piano melody and Xiah’s sad yet appealing voice mixed together. The song expresses the earnest feeling of a man who already knew about the separation but still appealed to reverse the decision.
10. Lullaby (Feat. Gecko of Dynamic Duo)
‘Lullaby’ is a soulful R&B song. Xiah composed it by himself and worked together with Fraktal to produce and create its lyrics. While the sweet and appealing vocal of Xiah on a groovy hip-hop downtempo beat is impressive, a vintage string-session and warm electric piano sound will make the listeners feel just like Xiah is singing a lullaby for them. Moreover, the famous hip-hop group Dynamic Duo’s Gecko will appear to feature in the rap part at the bridge of the song and double the dramatic sensiment of the song to a new level.
Having a electronic sound that was created by using repeatedly Synth bass and Portamento, ‘Fever’ was born in order to balance his passion for music and his powerful vocal. Particularly, while the repeated melody in the chorus is enough to stimulate the listener’s ears, his performance for this song on stage is also highly anticipated.
12.A dew-laden tree
This is a ballad song with a touch of pop. This song has a lyrical melody and sentimental lyrics that can express the full cability of the vocalist. Especially, its lyrics, which was written by Xiah, have some quotes from the lyrics of a song that was released when he was active in Japan ‘Because tomorrow will come’. The song uses a metaphor to capture his love toward the fans as the dew signifies the loved person and the tree represents the one who purely protects the dew.
