[NEWS] Sederhana ala Xiah Junsu

Sederhana ala Xiah Junsu

Senin, 18 Juni 2012 06:45 WIB | 3363 Views

Jakarta (ANTARA News) – Tak banyak hiasan maupun ornamen menghiasi panggung konser Xiah Junsu yang diselenggarakan di JITEC, Mangga Dua, Jakarta Barat, Sabtu pekan lalu.

Namun, penampilan Xiah Junsu mampu membius ribuan penonton yang memadati JITEC malam itu.

Dihiasi dengan kembang api dan tembakan laser berwarna hijau, penonton pun histeris manakala Junsu muncul dari tengah panggung sambil menyanyikan lagu Breath dari album terbarunya “Talantallegra”. Dengan lincah dia menari bersama beberapa penari latarnya.

Selesai lagu pertama, langsung disambung dengan No Gain, masih dari album yang sama. Kali ini Junsu hanya sedikit memberikan goyangan badan. Namun, goyangan Junsu ternyata berefek histeria lanjutan dari penonton.

“Apa kabar, saya Xiah, saya senang bertemu dengan kalian,” ucapnya selesai membawakan No Gain, tanpa penerjemah.

Sapaan bahasa Indonesia sontak membuat penonton makin histeris.

Junsu mengaku sangat terkesan dengan penggemarnya di Indonesia. Karena dia merasa tidak terlalu banyak tampil di acara atau program televisi, namun banyak orang yang yang mengenal dirinya.

“Banyak yang datang dukung saya, terima kasih,” sebutnya didampingi oleh penerjemah.

Penampilan dilanjutkan dengan lagu “Lullaby” dilanjut dengan Set Me Free.

Tidak hanya menampilkan lagu-lagu dari album barunya, Junsu juga memberikan dua video mengenai perjalanan konser Junsu.

Penonton pun dibuat terdiam ketika video mengalunkan lagu Too Love, soundtrack dari drama korea yang dibintangi oleh rekan satu grupnya Micky Yoochun, Sungkyuhan Scandal.

Dia juga menampilkan tiga lagu dari drama musikalnya, Elizabeth dan Mozart, yakni I Am, I Am Music, Why Me, dan Last Dance.

Junsu membuktikan janjinya, bahwa dia akan memberikan penampilan terbaik serta banyak berkomunikasi dengan penonton.

17 lagu yang dibawakannya semua dinyanyikan secara langsung tanpa lipsync. Bahkan lima lagu merupakan lagu ritme cepat dengan koreografi yang tak kalah sulit.

Pertunjukkan sudah hampir berakhir, tapi Junsu berjanji akan kembali lagi ke Indonesia.

Sontak penonton berteriak “JYJ, JYJ”, berharap Junsu akan membawa serta rekan-rekan satu grupnya, Hero Jaejoong dan Micky Yoochun.

Junsu pun melanjutkan penampilan dengan membawakan lagu yang membuatnya menangis kala mengadakan konser di Seoul, Korea Selatan yang berjudul I Hate Love.

Serentak penonton melakukan koor “Uljima, Uljima Oppa” yang berarti jangan menangis, kakak.

Junsu mampu membuktikan kemampuan vokal serta stamina yang dimilikinya. Tak jarang, penonton terkagum-kagum ketika dia mengeluarkan nada tinggi dengan kekuatan suara yang tak berubah meski sudah menari dan mengelilingi panggung.

Rela demi Junsu


Kemampuan vokal serta atraksi panggung ini lah yang menarik banyak penonton. Tak hanya dari jakarta, ada juga yang datang dari luar Pulau Jawa, bahkan luar negri.

Salah satunya Farah Arazi (23). Dia sengaja terbang dari Malaysia untuk melihat konser salah satu anggota boyband JYJ ini.

Farah yang berkuliah di India, terbang menuju Malaysia pada hari Jumat. Kemudian melanjutkan perjalanannya ke Jakarta pada Sabtu pagi.

“Saya baru sampai tadi pagi (Sabtu, 16/6) di Indonesia dan balik ke Malaysia besok pagi lanjut ke India sore harinya,”ujarnya usai menonton konser.

Dia sengaja datang ke Indonesia, karena konser Junsu di Indonesia tidak bentrok dengan jadwal ujiannya. Meski begitu, ayahanda Farah tidak mengetahui niatan anaknya ini.

“Kalau ayah saya sampai tahu, wahh.. Kalau ibu saya tidak masalah,” katanya sambil tersipu malu karena harus mengakui bahwa dia tidak meminta izin sang ayah terlebih dahulu.

Penampilan Junsu ini juga bukan kali pertamanya dia ikuti. Sebelumnya Farah pernah sengaja datang ke Korea Selatan untuk melihat musikal yang diperankan oleh Junsu, Elizabeth.

Tak jauh berbeda dengan Farah, Widi Febrianti yang tinggal di Palembang sengaja datang satu hari sebelumnya untuk menonton Junsu.

Persiapan untuk menonton pun terbilang cukup lengkap. Mulai dari bando dengan ornamen nama Junsu hingga baju dan lightstick.

“Tapi yang paling penting adalah persiapan teriakan,” sebutnya.

Tak hanya itu, untuk memudahkan akses ke tempat konser, Widi sengaja menyewa satu kamar untuk menginap dekat dengan tempat konser.

“Kalau dihitung-hitung sih banyak (uang) yang keluar, tapi kalau sudah demi mah susah,” akunya.

[News] 120616 ‘JYJ’ Junsu’s Concert, Simple yet Stunning

Jakarta – JYJ member Junsu held a successful concert in JITEC, Mangga Dua Square, Jakarta on Saturday (06/16/2012). He performed in Jakarta for the round schedule of ‘XIA The 1st Asia Tour Concert Tarantallegra’.

Scheduled to start the concert at 19.00 (West Indonesia Time), but until 20.00 Junsu had not yet appeared on the stage. Fans kept chanting the name “Kim Junsu” many times.

The long awaited artist finally showed up on stage at 20.40. Suddenly the stage was filled with fireworks and green laser highlights. Junsu was standing on stage with a dark blue suit and immediately sang the song ‘Breath’ following with ‘No Gain’.

Both songs were greeted by the hysterical shouts of the audiences. Especially in the second song when he was dancing with two female dancers in sexy outfits.

“Apa kabar? Saya Xia. Saya senang bertemu dengan kalian (T/N How are you? I’m Xia. I’m glad to meet you all),” said Junsu with fluent Indonesian without any cheating sheet. He also kept spreading warm smiles from the stage. “The next song will make you falling asleep,” he continued (in Korean) with the help of an interpreter. Then ‘Lullaby’ and ‘Intoxication’ were sung.

Junsu sang all his 17 tracks live throughout the concert. Although soaked in sweat due to the nonstop dancing, he still looked very excited.

‘Set Me Free’ became the next playlist. Laser and blue lights were shot everywhere. The audiences sang along too during the performance. After changing clothes into all-white suit, he then proceed to sing soundtrack drama ‘Scent of Woman’ ‘You are So Beautiful’. Again, the audiences couldn’t help but singing with him. It was such a festive!

The difference between Junsu’s concert and the other K-Pop concerts (held in Indonesia) was majority of the audiences were adults, not school teenagers. Understandably, as Junsu was first debuted in 2003 so that the fans were already more mature.

“Kalian senang nggak? Senang? Terimakasih! (T/N Are you guys happy? Happy? Thank you!)” Junsu said as he continued laughing. “Even though I sing here, I can not believe I am standing in Indonesia. I’m now very pleased to be able to come here for the first time,” he continued.

The audience screamed hysterically when Junsu said that he would grant three wishes. The interpreter then help (by interpreting audiences’ requests). The first request was Junsu had to do aegyo (T/N the angel pose). A moment later he was doing his cute angel pose then looked down embarrassed.

On the second demand, audiences began shouting uncontrollably. They screamed together “Open your clothes! Open your clothes!” Unfortunately the request was ignored by translator. Junsu ended up just shouting his trademark shout “Bambaya!”

Junsu looked so sweet. He could not stop smiling and laughing and enjoying each of his performances. Fans chanted in unison “Saranghae! Saranghae!” (‘I love you’ in Korean).

‘Even Though You Already Know’ and ‘Turn Around and Around’ then sung. The red lightstick ocean began to sway once more.

‘The Last Dance’ from Junsu’s musical ‘Elizabeth’ was then performed with dazzling musical style. The dancers wore masks and black lace cloak. The background stage screen showed Big Ben in the midst of full moon.

This segment seemed to showcase Junsu as a successful musical actor. The next song he sung ‘I am, I am Music’ from the musical he also starred in ‘Tears of Heaven’. Junsu looked mesmerized into his performance.

‘Why Don’t You Love Me’ from musical ‘Mozart’ was next to take over the stage. The background screen which displayed a castle-like scene complete with all chandeliers added even more melancholy atmosphere. Not to mention Junsu’s vocal quality that definitely fits the song and arguably exceptional. It seemed like we actually watched the real musical. Good job, Junsu!

Intro of ‘Tarantallegra’ was heaving, continued with fireworks explosion and actual fire that burst from the side of the stage. Junsu spell was successful, the audience continued to shout fanchant. Tarantallegra!

Tired. Junsu who was all sweating then sit for a few minutes on the red sofa which suddenly appeared in front of the stage. He was just sitting motionless and not saying anything. The impatient audiences chanted his name over and over again “Kim Junsu! Kim Junsu!”.

Junsu stood right in front of the stage. Again, fireworks burst and lasers began to dance. ‘Fever’, ‘Too Love’, and ‘Mission’ were set as the next songs. The concert was almost over. However Junsu’s dance was even more energetic and vibrant.

Junsu changed his clothes about 6 times. At the final stage, he wore a sleveless shirt printed ‘XIA The 1st Asia Tour Concert Tarantallegra’ with gold pants and calf-length boots. He sat in a high stool and sang ‘I Don’t Like Love’ and ‘The Tree Covered The Dew’.

While he was singing, he took a plushie given by audiences in the front row. Confetti were scattered like snow. ‘Fallen Leaves’ performance was ended with a round applause from audiences and Junsu bowed to say goodbye. “Thank you!” he said then formed ‘love’ using both hands.

Nine years of existence in Korean music industry really makes Junsu could attest to his quality. Without any hydraulic stage or excessive special effects, Junsu’s performance was still incredibly stunning. Fans came out the concert venue with much satisfaction. See you again, Junsu!

Konser Junsu ‘JYJ’ Sederhana nan Memukau

Jakarta – Personel JYJ Junsu sukses menggelar konser di JITEC, Mangga Dua Square, Jakarta, Sabtu (16/6/2012). Ia tampil di Jakarta dalam gelaran ‘XIA The 1st Asia Tour Concert Tarantallegra’.

Konser dijanjikan dimulai pukul 19.00 WIB. Namun sampai pukul 20.00 WIB Junsu belum juga muncul di atas panggung. Fans pun terus meneriakkan nama “Kim Junsu” berkali-kali.

Yang ditunggu akhirnya muncul sekitar pukul 20.40 WIB. Panggung tetiba dipenuhi cahaya dari kembang api, ditambah laser hijau menyorot. Junsu pun berdiri di atas panggung dengan stelan biru tua dan langsung menyanyikan lagu ‘Breath’ disambung dengan ‘No Gain’.

Kedua lagu itu disambut teriakan histeris penonton. Apalagi di lagu kedua ia menari dengan dua penari perempuan berpakaian seksi.

“Apa kabar? Saya Xia. Saya senang bertemu dengan kalian,” ujar Junsu dengan bahasa Indonesia yang lancar tanpa kertas contekan. Ia juga terus menebar senyum ramah. “Lagu berikutnya akan bisa membuat kalian tertidur,” sambungnya dibantu penerjemah. ‘Lullaby’ dan ‘Intoxication’ pun dilantunkan.

Junsu menyanyi ketujuh belas lagunya secara live. Meski berkeringat karena tak juga berhenti menari, ia terlihat sangat bersemangat.

‘Set Me Free’ jadi playlist selanjutnya. Laser dan sinar biru menyorot ke sana-sini. Penonton pun turut bernyanyi. Setelah berganti baju menjadi stelan serba putih, ia kemudian menyanyikan lagu soundtrack drama ‘Scent of Woman’ ‘You are So Beautiful’. Penonton pun kembali bernyanyi bersama sambil. Meriah!

Yang berbeda dari konser Junsu dengan konser KPop lainnya adalah, penonton yang didominasi penonton yang lebih dewasa, bukan remaja sekolahan. Maklum, Junsu debut pertama kali pada tahun 2003 sehingga fansnya pun sudah lebih dewasa.

“Kalian senang nggak? Senang? Terimakasih!” ujar Junsu sambil terus tertawa. “Meski saya menyanyi di sini, saya tak percaya bisa berdiri di Indonesia. Saya sekarang sangat senang bisa pertama kali datang ke sini,” sambungnya.

Penonton langsung berteriak histeris ketika Junsu menyatakan akan mengabulkan tiga permintaan. Sang penerjemah kemudian membantu. Junsu harus melakukan aegyo. Sesaat ia bergaya imut kemudian langsung tertunduk malu.

Permintaan kedua penonton mulai tak terkendali. Mereka berteriak bersama “Buka baju! Buka baju!” Sayang permintaan itu tak diindahkan sang penerjemah. Junsu akhirnya hanya meneriakkan teriakkan khasnya “Bambaya!”

Junsu tampak sangat manis. Ia tak henti tersenyum dan tertawa-tawa menikmati penampilannya. Para fans pun kompak meneriakkan “Saranghae! Saranghae!” (Aku mencintaimu dalam bahasa Korea).

‘Even Though You Already Know’ dan ‘Turn Around and Around’ kemudian dinyanyikan. Lautan lightstick merah menyala kembali bergoyang.

‘The Last Dance’ dari musikal Junsu ‘Elizabeth’ kemudian ditampilkan. Tentu dengan gaya musikal yang memukau. Para penari mengenakan topeng dan jubah lace hitam. Layar di belakang panggung menampilkan Big Ben di tengah purnama.

Segmen ini rupanya menampilkan Junsu sebagai aktor musikal sukses. Berikutnya ia menyanyikan lagu ‘I am, I am Music’ dari musikal yang juga dibintanginya ‘Tears of Heaven’. Junsu terlihat sangat menghayati penampilannya.

‘Why Don’t You Love Me’ dari musikal ‘Mozart’ mengambil alih panggung. Layar belakang yang menampilkan gambar kastil lengkap dengan chandelier menambah sendu suasana. Belum lagi kualitas vokal Junsu yang memang cocok dan luar biasa. Serasa menonton musikal sebenarnya. Good job, Junsu!

Intro ‘Tarantallegra’ akhirnya mengalun disambut ledakan kembang api dan api sebenarnya yang menyembur dari sisi panggung. Mantra Junsu berhasil, penonton pun terus meneriakkan fanchant. Tarantallegra!

Lelah. Junsu yang berkeringat kemudian duduk beberapa menit di sofa merah yang tiba-tiba berada di depan panggung. Duduk saja tak bergerak atau mengucapkan apapun. Penonton tak sabar dan meneriakkan namanya berulang-ulang “Kim Junsu! Kim Junsu!”.

Junsu berdiri tepat di sisi depan panggung. Lagi-lagi kembang api menyembur dan laser kembali menari-nari. ‘Fever’, ‘Too Love’, dan ‘Mission’ jadi tembang selanjutnya. Konser hampir berakhir. Tarian Junsu justru semakin enerjik dan bersemangat.

Junsu berganti baju sekitar 6 kali. Terakhir ia mengenakan kaos bertuliskan ‘XIA The 1st Asia Tour Concert Tarantallegra’ dipadu celana emas dan sepatu bot sebetis. Ia duduk di kursi tinggi dan menyanyikan ‘I Don’t Like Love’ dan ‘The Tree Covered The Dew’.

Sambil menyanyi Junsu sempat mengambil boneka pemberian salah seorang penonton di baris terdepan. Confetti bertaburan seperti salju. ‘Fallen Leaves’ ditutup tepukan tangan penonton dan Junsu membungkuk mengucap selamat tinggal. “Thank you!” tutupnya kemudian membentuk love menggunakan kedua tangannya.

Sembilan tahun eksis di dunia musik Korea benar-benar membuat Junsu bisa membuktikan kualitasnya. Tanpa panggung hidrolik atau efek spesial berlebihan, penampilan Junsu tetap luar biasa memukau. Fans pun keluar dengan puas. See you again, Junsu!

A fan, whom I met at Seoul Jamsil Indoor Stadium on May 20th when a popular group JYJ’s member Kim Junsu held his first solo concert, expressed her concern that “the reality of a competent artist with many talents being boycotted by broadcasting companies is sorrowful. I do not know until when they have to be chained to unfair restrictions and pressures.”

A middle aged female fan who lives in Yangchun-gu, Seoul asked back “is it logical that there is no television stage, which a leader of Hallyu(Korean wave) star can stand on after releasing the solo album?” and she hoped “not only Kim Junsu but JYJ members can share musical communion with the public on television as soon as possible.”

Fans’ resentments toward music programs, which shut their doors to the appearance of JYJ, is getting higher again. This became stronger after Kim Junsu’s concert.

Fans are expressing their sadness that they “cannot see JYJ on music programs although they are one of best singers regarding their abilities and presence in Korea” and opposed to this situation by saying “this (banning JYJ) is a great loss in Korean music industry” on various internet communities.

Kim Junsu honestly confessed the reality and his worry during the press conference for the release of his album: “making the album under the assumption that I cannot be on television was one of the greatest worries (I had). This is an obvious situation which made me enervated.”

Most officials/staffs of entertainment industry have the same view that JYJ being banned on music program, which already became long-term, is abnormal and deformed.

The fact that their music cannot be aired on television, despite the fact that three members have already won various suits including the exclusive contract suspension injunction against ex-company SM Entertainment and the fact that the court has guaranteed their freedom for entertainment activities including appearing on television, proves there is a group of unfair and unjust authority in the broadcasting industry.

Thus we can point out that they (JYJ) became victims of the fight for hegemony which derived from the composition of authority in entertainment industry and broadcast industry.

However, we have to cognize the fact that the channels where their music can be shared have increased and their effects surpassed the effects by media while JYJ has been completely isolated and restricted from the broadcasting industry.

Fans, who love JYJ, have increased all over the world and became more intimate. Members imprinted their presences to the public through various areas including music, drama, musical and etc. and have armed more firmly.

In reality, the music video ‘Tarantallegra,’ the title song of Kim Junsu’s solo album attracted viewers around the world as soon as it has been released and passed 3million views. Also, his album sold more than 100 thousand copies beating Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber in ITunes, Rakuten, Amazone Japan, and etc in Japan. This result is more valuable as he has achieved it without any activity in Japan recently.

Prohibition on JYJ appearing on television is no longer appropriate or persuasive. It is embarrassing because ‘neglecting’ JYJ continuously caused the exposure of unfair/narrow-minded relationship between Korean popular music industry and the broadcast industry to the global music market.

It is compromising that backwardness of Korean pop music industry has been exposed to Hallyu (Korean wave) fans. In one word, it (JYJ being boycotted) is a waste/loss for national power of Hallyu.

Maybe fans’ complaints and appeals toward broadcasting companies, which have high barriers and restrictions against JYJ, might be portrayed undersized. It might seem reckless and portrayed as throwing an egg against the rock. [TN: It is a Korean proverb/idiom which means ‘beating one’s head against a wall’]

However, the broadcasting companies, which truckled to the large authority of entertainment industry, should remember: there are many methods to break the rock/wall, and that disgusting ‘stain,’ even if it is hard to break a wall with eggs, will remain in the memory of the history forever.

and some news about Xia’s new solo album

[Argument] ‘Immortal Song,’ which lowered the entry barriers for public TV, should apply the same rules to JYJ too.

‘Super Star K-3’’s ‘mega singer group,’ Ulala Session, who set a milestone of three consecutive super saves and won the competition, chose KBS2’s ‘Immortal Song, singing the legend’ (Immortal Song) as their first appearance in public TV.

Ulala Session finished filming on April 30th for the episode Park Jinyoung of ‘Immortal Song’ and their stage will be aired on 19th. They changed Park Jiyoon’s ‘coming-of-age ceremony’ to their own colors and will contend for victory with Alli who has already won her second win on the episode on May 12th.

Casting singers with high competences…’Immortal Song’ lowered the entry barrier for public TV.

People, who have watched Ulala Session’s stages through ‘Super Star K-3,’ would have imagined seeing their stages on the public TV at least once. The reason why fans had conversation that that Ulala Session should make appearance in ‘I am a Singer’ once was because of the ‘perfection’ they show on the stages. However, ‘Immortal Song’ intelligently decided the appearance of Ulala Session.

In reality, seeing singers from cable TV on public TV was difficult until Huh Gak was on ‘Immortal Song’ as a regular. Although most of music programs confessed “Anyone can make an appearance if they are talented,” this phrase could be interpreted differently according to the interest of the broadcasting company or the production crews.

‘Immortal Song,’ however, guaranteed appearance of various singers unlike other music programs of public TV channels. During the process, it produced treasure like Alli. There were many singers like G.O and Kang Minkyung who were rediscovered. The door for participation was opened to Huh Gak and Ulala Session as an extension.

The appearance of Ulala Session is also shocking because solo vocalists sang on the stages (of ‘Immortal Song’) until now. Their appearance was accomplished although there can be problem with equity as they, who show harmonies and performance together, might get higher points than a soloist.

Anyways, the expectation for Ulala Session’s first appearance in the public TV is getting higher as they confessed they gave their all for the preparation of the stage. On the other hand, there is another group, which comes to my mind and hopes to see them making their first appearance on public TV through the music program ‘Immortal Song.’ That is JYJ.

“Competence and ability to get attention?” There is no reason why JYJ cannot make appearance”

The Kim Choong CP of ‘Immortal Song’ stated related to the appearance of Ulala Session “Ulala Session is a competent group and ‘Immortal Song’ needed a person who can garner attentions.”

This means competence and ability to get attention are the basic qualifications. Although these are not all the necessary qualifications to make an appearance, if we only look at competence and ability to grab attention, JYJ is actually the ‘tailored singers’ that ‘Immortal Song’ really needs or must cast.

As you know well, JYJ Kim Junsu’s vocal and performance abilities are beyond doubts as he was certified by musical industry. Kim Junsu, who was active in musicals as he was banned from making appearance on TV, is a ‘multiplayer’ singer who can sing ballad with his plaintive tone and perform splendid performance with dance. Kim Junsu with Kim Jaejoong and Park Yuchun proved several times during their concerts that JYJ’s stages lived up to the expectations and were excellent.

What about the ability to garner attention? Will there be any better topic if they, who are banned to make appearance just because they are in ligation with their ex-agency, made appearance on public TV? If they, who are also really popular internationally that they could even hold World Tour concert, make appearance in ‘Immortal Song,’ ‘Immortal Song’ will have a great number of international fans in an instance. When we are looking at the competence and ability to garner the attention, there is no reason why JYJ cannot make appearance.

Of course, it is still unknown if we can see JYJ through television. However, because it is ‘Immortal Song,’ we can try and we can also hope. As they have lowered entry barriers and opened doors to unknown singers or singers from cable TV, who had difficulties appearing on public TV, there will be no trouble if they apply the same ‘rules’ to JYJ. This is a part that must be reviewed for the justice for the opportunity.

If that would be difficult, what about casting him as musical actor Kim Junsu like the musical actor Lim Taekyung, who had made an appearance, instead of JYJ Kim Junsu? His stage changing constantly without being constrained in genres might be the best fit for ‘Immortal Song.’

Just the thought of having the competition between Huh Gak and Kim Junsu or the competition between Ulala Session and JYJ makes me excited already.

Group JYJ member Kim Junsu’s song ‘I dislike love’ from his solo album is getting an explosive response.

‘I dislike love,’ which attracted the attention of the public through member Park Yuchun’s SBS drama ‘Rooftop Prince’ (Script by Lee Heemyung, Directed by Shin Yoonsub), was released on various sites on 11th. The delicate piano theme and the riff with bass clarinet increase plaintiveness to the melody of Jun Haesung.

Especially lyrics like ‘like my tangled hair, my heart is also getting out of shape,’ ‘I don’t know why I loved so much and having hard time in pain for this love and you, lady,’ ‘The only love that I want to have and the love I want to abandon,’ ‘I don’t remember my smile, lips, two eyes, expression whenever I saw you,’ and etc mix well with Kim Junsu’s sweet voice and hieghtened impression.

Netizens, who listened to the song, reacted “Kim Junsu’s voice in ‘I dislike love’ is really sad,’ ‘listening to Kim Junsu’s ‘I dislike love’ in the night time increases sensibility,’ ‘I am sentimentaized over Kim Junsu’s ‘I dislike love,’ ‘Kim Junsu’s ‘I dislike love’ is really mournful,’ and etc.

Meanwhile, Kim Junsu’s album ‘Xia Tarantallegra’ proved its superiority as the server of the site during the pre-order went down and etc. Kim Junsu will hold ‘JYJ Junsu the first Asia Tour in Seoul’ and meet fans at Seoul Jamsil Indoor Stadium on coming 19th and 20th.

Male Anchor: Group JYJ’s member Kim Junsu released his first solo album named ‘Xia.’

Female Anchor: He revealed his strong ambitions to set a new trend different from monotonous idol music

Junsu: Thank you.

Junsu: I began with the thought to differentiate from music that is being popular right now. Like the definition (of Tarantallegra), the meaning of let us enjoy music together while you listen to these is also implied. Because almost 80% of the album is composed of songs composed by me, I think this is the album which portrays Xia’s color the best.

Q. How do you feel about releasing the first full-length album?

JS: To begin with, I, Xia, released the first full-length solo album with the title ‘Xia’ after 8 years of debut. Because of this and the album contains only my voice, I personally worried a lot and expected a lot at the same time for this album. As this album is composed of very nice songs, I think I could also develop through this album.

Q. Why did you release solo album instead of that of ‘JYJ’?

JS: It is not that JYJ was not involved in it. It is because members are doing solo activities right now. The company and we adjusted the periods for solo activities and group activities. As two members are doing dramas, to be honest, I was originally thinking about doing drama. After discussions, members are really great in dramas. Of course, I am doing musicals but public activities were almost nonexistent for me. I continuously longed for those activities and as the company and I thought about this, we began with the thinking ‘Let’s do what I am best at, what I feel the most confident and do best.’ For me that was releasing album and holding concerts as a singer. I prepared the album knowing I cannot be on television. To be honest, it is true that I hesitated a lot about the activity with album until now, apart from JYJ’s album. However, internet has developed a lot nowadays and our company has system for international activities, I thought I can have my own fruitful solo album activity using those sources and gained energy/confidence and prepared the album.

Male group JYJ’s Kim Junsu honestly confessed that the reason why the tile of his solo album is ‘XIA’ is because that is his name.

Kim Junsu attended the press conference for his first album ‘Xia-Tarantallegra’ at Lotte Hotel, Seoul on 16th.

Kim Junsu confided “The name ‘Xia(h) is the name mad by Jaejoong-hyung and I. Although Jaejoong-hyung and Yuchun didn’t like old names that much, I liked it. Although I am Junsu for JYJ, ‘Xia’ fits the best for my identity when I released the solo album. I think everything is implied in this one word.”

Kim Junsu added “I also use my real name when I work for musical. This is not because I was hiding ‘Xia’ on purpose, but it is noncommittal to use Xia, which is not real name, for musicals. Members also used their real names for dramas because using alias would be awkward. We have never tried to ostracize those names.”

Kim Junsu also said “Whether I use Xia(h) or Junsu, there are diverse international fans. They call me in various names including Xia(h) Junsu, Kim Junsu, Junsu, Xia(h) and etc. I thought it was natural to release as Xia because I am Xia.”

Kim Junsu caught reporters’ eyes by saying “I have never changed my autograph since my debut. I still use Xia(h). I have never been concerned about using ‘Xia(h)’ that even the question ‘Why did you come back with name ‘Xia’ feels strange/unfamiliar.”

Meanwhile, Kim Junsu released his first solo album on 15th, and he will hold full-length concert at Jamsil Indoor Stadium on 19th and 20th.

Junsu’s comment for fans waiting for his solo album for the past 9 years

Q: comment for fans who have been waited for his solo album for the past 9 years



It has been release in 9 years…well, it was somewhat belated than I expected..there were many changes to us so that it took more time for me to release the album than I anticipated. Yet..well, it may be sad for me to tell..but now I’m okay and, actually not only I but also members kept finding ways for TV appearance but now, frankly speaking, if it is possible for me to appeare on TV, I don’t hope to appear in the latest TV programs – though the entertainment program may be ok. To tell the truth, as I told you previously, there is a broad gap between ‘I can appear on TV but I’m reluctant’ and ‘I’m unable to appear,’ especially in terms of psychology.

I also anticipated to release the solo album but had many concerns and worries. At first, the chief of the agency(c-jes) gave me suggestion but I rejected because I didn’t want to make my solo album in that way. (translator: that way means no TV appearance, no promotion by mass media) Yet, too many times passed in order to take good time to show better one. Well, the musical has some limitations in communicating with more people. Acting in dramas clearly has some risks – if not, I had some hesitations. Of course, if there is a chance for me to act in drama I might do, but, if comparing it with a music album, it is a matter of fact for me to choose an album. And, when I looked at myself weighing between the two things…I was somewhat sad because the current situation in which I have many difficulties in activities as a singer made me think about acting. Frankly, I like singing. I like singing..if the musical didn’t had singing part but only acting, I would have reluctance to appear in the musical. But there are songs so that I started participating…


Well, it may be late, but now I think if I had released my solo album before, I could not have written and put the songs I hoped to sing. In the end, such an album was what the other made, not the album I hope to make and the music I want to sing for fans. So..I came to think it’s better to release my solo album now. 



And…there are many….frankly, in making the latest album the situation was too pessimistic for me..but, because there have been fans constantly supporting me for 9 years – this is the only one that encouraged me. So, I want to tell you that I was able to release this album because of you. Thank you.

[AUDIO/TRANS] 120602 The last question at Synnara Fansign for XIA “Tarantallegra”

Listen to the audio HERE

Q: Fans have been waiting for your solo album for 9 years. Please say something for the fans who have waited.

A: It’s been 9 years since my debut, for us everything has changed a lot more than we expected, and it obviously took a lot more time than I intended. It’s obvious, but to be honest I also..It will be sad when I talk about this issue but I’m fine with it now, so are the other members. Everything was beautiful before but honestly, even though we have appeared on TV and I used to want to appear on variety shows a bit but recently I don’t want to go to TV shows anymore. Frankly, it is really…with that much…But as I have said before… not doing something and not being able to do it is completely different in my mind so honestly, I was really worried when releasing the solo album that I’ve been expecting and waiting for too. At first, when the director proposed the idea, I have rejected his proposal. I didn’t want to release my solo album like this…I want to show better things but waiting again seems so long, also meeting the public through musicals like this obviously has its limits too. Acting in drama is clearly risky. Well even though it’s not that risky and I could so it but I am not satisfied with myself. Since later if there is a good opportunity, I will be able to act in a drama but when comparing it with an album, of course I want to choose an album. When putting them on scales and looking back at myself, I am a bit…The siuation right now is difficult…Working as a singer feels so hard so I have even thought of acting, even though I thought like that but to be honest, I like singing. I really like singing. If musical was only about acting, I would have avoided it too but because I was able to sing, I really like it. That’s why I started (being in musical). Anyway, even though it was late…But when thinking about releasing the album this time, if I did release it years ago, I would obviously not be able to write the music that I want to write like I do right now, it would have been a solo album made by someone else for me. It would not be the music that I want to show, that I want to communicate with my fans so because a solo album is important like that, it’s better to release it now. Also, because of the album this time, I was pessimistic about releasing an album in such situations but because everyone of you has been supporting me for 9 years long…that really gave me strength to release it. So honestly, the album is able to be released thanks to every single one of you. That’s all I want to say. Thank you.
