[Vid+Trans] 120830 Xia Junsu Interview in Hong Kong

[Vid+Trans] 120830 Xia Junsu Interview in Hong Kong

Host: We’re glad to have JYJ’s Kim Junsu with us today. Annyonghaseyo.

Junsu: Annyonghaseyo. Da Jia Hao. (T/N: “Hi Everyone”, in Chinese)

Host: I know that this time is the first time you are here on your own for a concert. Do you feel nervous without your brothers with you?

Junsu: Compared to three people, it’s a bit lonely after all. But as it is already the last stop of the Asia tour, I am more adapted to it and more at ease with performing for everyone. To be able to spend enjoyable time with everyone, I am very excited and happy.

Host: I know that in this album, other than showing your toned body , you also dressed up as a girl. Jaejoong himself dressed up as a girl before, so between you two, who do you think is prettier?

Junsu: *laughs* To say who is prettier, this is a bit difficult. Even when looking at girls, they have different styles too. I think we brought out different styles with our own way. But if were to say prettiness, I will say it’s Jaejoong.

Host: JYJ members sometimes uploaded comical photos online. Who is the most playful among you three?

Junsu: Playful… I think all three of us are playful. From what I think, I think the two of them are more playful than me. Like… Jaejoong’s playfulness is more towards actions while Yoochun likes to talk funnily. When I’m with the two of them, I am very happy and became filled with happiness. My laughters became more. Furthermore when I’m with the members, I think my comical side becomes more obvious. Therefore whenever the three of us are together, the laughters never stop. Yup.

Commentary: In fact JYJ had their serious side too. Jaejoong wrote a song for Junsu which made Junsu very satisfied.

Junsu: First and foremost, the songs that I had received from members are not sang together but for my own. It really has a different feeling. Such a feeling… And also to able to digest the song that I received well, and to put it in my own album, I am really very happy. Jaejoong is also very happy that he wrote for me. As members know each other very well, thus he was able to write songs that is suitable for the other party. To receive such a good song, I am really thankful to Jaejoong.

Host: Your twin brother also wrote lyrics for you this time. Do you find it special?

Junsu: For ‘Tarantallegra’, it’s my first time composing and arranging. When I was writing the lyrics, as my brother who have wrote ‘Mission’ before, he has good touch towards dance numbers. Thus I asked him for his help to inject new ideas or try to write the lyrics. One day he asked me about the meaning of the word, ‘Tarantallegra’. It was the meaning of a curse to make people dance. He asked me how about using the word for the lyrics and I said that it’s good. Seeing my brother who worked so hard writing such a suitable lyrics among the new genres for me, I am also grateful towards my brother and will let him be in charge of it in future.

Commentary: Would Junsu like to venture into dramas like his two members?

Junsu: I think that I might meet everyone in a drama one day. As for when will that be, I am really not sure. I really don’t know regarding this. When I am filming drama, I will be well-prepared for it. If there is a suitable script, no matter when, everyone will have the chance to see me on TV.

Host: Is there anything you would like to say to Hongkong fans?

Junsu: Words to Hongkong fans…. They don’t mind that I’m not able to meet them frequently. As long as I’m here, they would welcome me warmly. The love that everyone gave me, I am very grateful too. Really thank you. Whenever it is, I love you all. ‘I love everyone’ (T/N: in Cantonese) ‘I love everyone’ (T/N: in Korean)

Host: Thank you Junsu for being here.

Junsu: Thank you. ‘Thank you’. (T/N: in Chinese)

120826 World-class vocalist, XIA Junsu’s recommended music

XIAworld

120826 World-class vocalist, XIA Junsu’s recommended music

Hello, Cyworld members!
I am XIA, greeting everyone through my official solo album and English single.
Nice to meet you.

1. This time, TARANTALLEGRA is a song that you personallly composed and I was very surprised at its fairly high quality. Since when have you started composing songs? – Gwon Gooyoung

Firstly, the musical aspect of this song is also important but because I pictured out the visual aspect first then composed it, I worked on both composition and filming for the music video at the same time. Besides, the music video was released 1 day before the song itself so I have to work harder on the visual aspect like choreography and fashion etc to make the song even better.

I think I started composing when I was 20. I learnt about the basics of composition and naturally strengthened my skills as what I felt and learnt by myself along the way. At the moment, I still want to learn more about this and also compose more songs.

2. I am curious whether you got the inspirations from which circumstance while composing. From natural scene? Your everyday life? Or, did they just suddenly come to you? -@shiningspot

Everything around me, also everything that happened to me is my inspiration.
If a melody or a beat pops up in my head, I will run to the composing room right away to compose and keep them there. The title song of my solo album was inspired a lot by the role ‘Death’ in musical Elisabeth in terms of its mystical and androgynous vibe.

3. When did you have the idea of adding the sound of gong instrument into the Oriental version of TARANTALLEGRA? Also, is the high-pitched part at the end your ad-lib? -@wnstn4803

It is because TARANTALLEGRA is a song where orchestra was grafted onto pop. Ever since its music was finished, I have thought that if I get to make a remix for my repackage album later on, I will make use of gong instrument in order to revive a Korean sense, and also an Oriental feeling for the song.

When I was young, I have learnt how to play Samul nori like Jang-gu, Buk and Gong. To be honest, because it is an English version, I planned to put aside the idea of adding the sound of traditional instruments but after recording the song, it came to my mind that they would match even better with an English song like this so I decided to add the sound of gong into the record. The reason why I add the ad-lib part at the end is because I want to put the fantasy and oriental sense of the song to the extreme. Imagining about that feeling in my mind, I naturally added in my ad-lib while singing.

(T/N: Samul nori is 4 traditional musical instruments of Korea, including Jang-gu, Buk, KKaeng-kwa-ri and Jing )

4. Is there any interesting episode when you recorded for this album? -@peach_xia

I already felt this when working on the worldwide album last time, I felt really carefree when recording. Because the composer respects the artist and respects his feelings 120%, I feel great when working. It is also the same at the recording time. This time when I was singing, I choked a little bit and started coughing, the composer Automatic told me that I could to have a rest until whenever I wanted and asked me to have a cup of warm tea then continue, etc he cared about me so much that I didn’t even know how to react. It was a nice time working with him.

5. Which music genre do you want to try in the future? To be honest, do you feel the most confident in any area? -@mim-ee

Honestly, rather than talking about which genre I want to try, everything is considered as challenge to me. I think that in music, the desire to always take on new challenge is very important. Rather than dividing the songs into different genre, I want to sing well every song. For the upcoming World tour, instead of a repackage album, I asked for English song and went to the US to work on my English single then released it. To me, processes like these are also considered as one kind of challenge.

6. If you get to have a duet, please tell us who are the BEST 3 female singers that you definitely want to work with and also why you choose them!

Honestly, I want to work with a lot of singers since there are a lot of excellent singers who can convey endless of  feelings through their voice. I just hope that in the duet song that we sing, our voice would go well with each other and create a crossover effect. Hmm…If I really have to choose then

3rd is Lyn-noona who owns such a beautiful voice.
Then, 2nd is Baek Jiyoung-sunbaenim. I like every OST song that sunbaenim has sung.
1st is Lee Sora-sunbaenim. I felt really honored that sunbaenim has said she wanted to have a duet with me in an article a while ago and I was very impressed when I saw sunbaenim on ‘I am a singer’.

7. Because you have changed your hair color so often when traveling around for your Asia tour, it has become a hot topic among the fans. Why did you change your hair color that often? Also, which hair color do you like the most? -@bbiyoxiah

Because this is my first solo tour so I have to be well prepared and every single city in the tour is equally important. For every concert, I want to see it as a new start and do my best so I changed my hair color. Plus, because of the different color image of each country, I chose my hair color as a part of fan service. As a result, I dyed my hair to yellow for Thailand, blue for Indonesia and Taiwan, red for Shanghai.

8. For the first time in history, all seats in the Sejong Center were sold out (until now, XIA Junsu is still the only one who can do that). Whenever you perform musical, the seats will be all sold out. I think you feel very different at the curatin call when looking at the full audience. I am curious of how you feel ^^! -@For_XIA

I feel thankful. It seems that I became an extreme perfectionist because of this. I have to do as best as I can on every stage. When performing, I couldn’t see the audience but at the curtain call when I saw the whole audience very clearly, I felt so happy and grateful that tears flowed from my eyes.

Big applause from the audiences who watched a performance where all actors and staff have put in their best, then they cried and laughed with us. That is something that makes me feel so happy and thankful that I cannot express in words. And that  naturally gives me motivation to do even better in the next performance.

9. Beside JYJ members, can you list some celebrities that you are close with? I am curious of XIA Junsu’s circle of friends!

I separate them into two big groups. Friends in the entertainment industry, gamers, the ones in my FC MEN team and the sunbaenims in musical industry.

I am close with Kikwang, Doojoon, Jisuk-sunbae, Hyunjoong and Sungkwang-hyung.
I often contact and hang out with some musical sunbaenims like Jo Seungwoo hyung, Seonah-noona, Park Gunhyung-sunbae, Joohyun-noona, Min Younggi-sunbaenim etc.

10. 10 years, 20 years later, what kind of artist will XIA Junsu become? Or, how do you want yourself to be in the future? Like, I think I will still continue to sing this kind of music, or It will be great if everyone always remembers me as such singer..However you want to be! -@XIA_nolene

I don’t think 10 years are too far away. In fact, I think of that as a near future. Of course, I will still take on some challenges 10 years later. Since I will never ever stop challenging myself. I hope I will become an artist in his late 30s that ages nicely. I absolutely don’t have the thought of still being a popular singer until then. Rather than that, it will be great if up to that moment, I am still not afraid of taking on challenges, still love music, still do my best on stage and also I hope to become a Kim Junsu who will get to know more about life and get wiser with age.

XIA Junsu’s recommended BGM

1. 5 songs that recently XIA Junsu has been listening to the most

1st: Gangnam style – Psy
I definitely listen to Psy hyung’s hit song very often recently.

2nd: Beautiful night – BEAST
BEAST dongsaengs’ song :-)

3rd: Cherry blossom ending – Busker Busker
A simple song

4th: Love is dripping – 10cm

5th: So sick – Neyo

Honestly speaking, I don’t listen to any specific song or singer. The songs I listen to are random so it seems like I don’t have such thought like I must definitely recommend the song of this singer. There are times that I listen to a lot of pop songs but when I worked on my song in USA, I also listened to a lot of hip-hop and R&B. To be honest, the song that I listen to the most is my own song. In order to monitor the songs in my released album, I listen to them a lot throughout 1-2 weeks.

2. The song that brings comfort to you when you feel tired and troubled in life or the song that has a deep meaning in your life

Why can’t you love me – Park Euntae (Musical Mozart)
Golden star – Shin Youngsook (Musical Mozart)

All these 2 songs are from the musical Mozart. They are the ones that gave me a lot of comfort.

3. If you have lover, the BEST 3 songs that you want to sing to her

1st: Lullaby – Junsu (XIA)
2nd: That man – Baek Jiyoung
3rd: I love you – Tim

If I have a lover, I will want to sing a lot of sweet songs for her. This song is not in Cyworld Music but I really like the song ‘I have never loved like this’ from the musical ‘Tears of heaven’.

4. Among the songs that you have sung so far, which are the BEST 5 songs that you cherish the most:

1st: Fallen leaves – JYJ
2nd: You are so beautiful – XIA
3rd: TARANTALLEGRA – XIA
4th: I dislike love – XIA
5th: Dew-laden tree – XIA

[Trans] 120826 XIA Junsu Cyworld Music Interview

World Vocalist Junsu(XIA)’s Recommended Music

1. Tarantallegra is a song you made yourself, and I was very surprised at the high quality. When did you start making songs?
First, the musical part was important too, but because the visual image was prior to the composing for this song, thoughts about the composition and the music video went on at the same time.
That’s the reason why the music video was released a day before the song. It is a song that stands out more with the visual images such as choreography and fashion than the song itself.
I think I started making songs when I was 20 years old. I learned the basic composing and improved by feeling and learning myself.
I still want to learn more and make many more songs.
 
 
2. I’m curious usually what are you inspired by when you compose. Scenery? Episodes from your real life? Or does it just comes to you?
Everything around me, and everything that happens is my inpiration.
When a melody or a beat comes to me, I tend to run to my studio immediately, make it, and save it.
I was inpired by the Death(Tod) from Elizabeth for the title song of my first album. The mysterious, epicene feeling.
3. When did you think of putting the sound of kkwaenggari in Tarantallegra? And are the high-notes at the last part an ad-lib?
(I thought of putting the sound of kkwanggari in) Because Tarantallegra is a pop song combined with an orchestra.
From the very start of making the song I thought of adding the Korean, Oriental feeling by making use of the kkwaenggari if I get to make an remix for a repackage album.
I learned samulnori(T/N: Korean traditional quartet) such as Janggu, drum, and kkwaenggari since I was young.
To be honest, becuase it was an English version I was going to give up putting in the kkwaenggari sounds, but as I was recording the song I got to think maybe it would go better with the English version. So I decided to record the kkwaenggari sounds.
The ad-lib at the last part is also an effect to maximize the dreamlike, Oriental feeling.
As I was singing while imagining those feelings the ad-lib came out naturally.
4. Was there an interesting episode during the recording?
I also felt it during the recording of the Worldwide album that it is very free.
Because the composer respects the artist and the feeling the artist has for 120%, recording is so pleasant.
This time I choked and coughed a bit when I was singing, and the composer ‘Automatic’ treated me so nicely by saying you can rest as much as you want or would you have a cup of warm tea and try again, that I didn’t know what to do.
It was pleasant to work with them.
5. Is there a genre of music you want to challenge in the future? Is there a genre you are most confident in?!
To tell the truth, it’s more like everything is a challenge than a particular genre.
I think the attitude of challenging always is most important for music. I want to do a good job in every songs than dividing genres.
Like the process of re-creating a song into an English version instead of a repackage for a world tour, and releasing a single recorded in the U.S. was another challenge for me.
6. Please tell us the Best 3 female singers you really want to do a duet with, and why!
To be honest there are very many, since there are so many singers that delivers a limitless feelings just with their voice.
I think just doing a duet with another singer may give a crossover-like feeling as our voices meet together.
Hmm..if I must choose
the 3rd is Lynn noona with a beautiful voice.
And the 2nd is Baek Jiyoung sunbae-nim.
I really like all OSTs sunbae-nim sang.
The 1st is Lee Sora sunbae-nim.
She said she would like to duet with me through an artical last time.
It is such an honor and I was very moved when she was on I am a Singer.
7. You changed your hair color very frequently during the worldtour which became an issue among the fans.
Why did you change your hair color so often? Which color did you like the best?
I changed the color often since it was my first solo tour so I was extremely determined, every concert in different cities were precious. And I had an attitude that I should do my best because every performance is a new start.
As a fan service I chose the color considering the image of each country.
So Thailand was yellow, Indonesia and Taiwan was blue, and Shanghai was red.
8. Including the first Sejong center sold-out in history (Xia Junsu is still the only one), every musical you do is sold-out.
I think it must feel extraordinary when looking at the full house during the curtain call. I’m curious how it feels^^!
I feel thankful of course. I think that’s why I become a perfectionist even more.
I think I should show my best on every stage.
I can’t see the audience when I’m acting, but when the performance is over and I look at the brightly lit up seats, I’m so happy and thankful that I feel like I’ll cry.
The warm applause from the audience who laughed and cried and joined us during the performance that all actors and staffs put their best effort into.
I feel unspeakably thankful and happy. It naturally becomes a motivation for the next performance.
9. Which stars would you say are the closest friends execpt for JYJ? I’m curious about Xia Junsu’s personal connections!
I can divide it generally into two.
Friends who are entertainers and gamers from the soccer team FC MEN, and musical sunbae-nims.
I’m close to Kikwang, Doojun, Jisuk sumbae, Hyunjung, Sungkwang hyung,
and I keep in touch with Jo Sengwoo hyung, Sunah noona, Park Gunhyung sunbae, Joohyun noona, Min Youngki sunbae from the musicals.
10. What artist do you think you’ll be after 10, 20 years?
Or the future self you want to be? For example, I think I would be doing this kind of music or I want to be remembered as this kind of a singer..
Anything!
10 years later doesn’t seem very far to me. I actually think it is a close future.
And of course I will be challenging something. Since I’m not going to stop chanllenging for my whole life.
I would like to be an artist in my late thirties, growing old nicely.
I not in the least wish to be a popular artist till then. Instead I want to be Kim Junsu, still not afraid of challenging, a person that loves music, someone who does his best on the stage, and a man who got to know more about life and is growing old nicely.
Xia Junsu’s Recommended BGM
1. Songs that Xia Junsu listens to the most these days (5 songs)
1st : Kangnam Style – Psy
These days of course I listen to Psy hyung’s song which is the trend
2nd : It’s a beautiful Night – Beast
Song of Beast dongsangduls. (T/N: younger brothers)
3rd : Cherry Blossoms Ending – Busker Busker
A light song
4th : Love Forms a Drop – 10cm
5th : So Sick – Ne-yo
To tell the truth I don’t think of singers or songs when I listen to music.
Since I listen to a lot of songs randomly, I don’t think there’s a ‘I recommend this song without question.’
Sometimes I listen to K-pop more and when I was recording in the U.S. I listened to Hiphop and R&B.
To be honest the song I listen to the most is my own song. After the release of the album, I listen to it from 1 to 2 weeks to monitor it.
2. Songs that gave comfort when you were going through the most difficult time of your life, or songs that are meaningful to you
Why don’t you love me – Park Euntae (Musical Mozart)
Gold Star – Shin Youghsuk (Musical Mozart)
These are both songs from Musical Mozart. I was comforted much by these two songs.
3. Best 3 songs you want to sing to your lover 
1st : Lullaby – Junsu(XIA)
2nd : That Man – Baek Jiyoung
3rd : I Love You – Tim
When I have a lover I want to sing a lot of sweet songs for her.
Cyworld music doesn’t have it but ‘I’ve never loved like this’ from Tears of Heaven is also good.
4. Best 5 songs you cherish the most among songs you participated in till now
1st : Fallen Leaves – JYJ
2nd : You are So Beautiful – XIA
3rd : Tarantallegra – XIA

120826 Kim Junsu “I won’t stop taking on challenge under the name of XIA”

credit : XIAworld 

“World star Kim Junsu (XIA) has arrived.”

Yesterday, at 4pm local time, as soon as Kim Junsu (XIA) entered Hong Kong Renaissance Conference room, over 150 news reporters and photographers that were wating for him stood up all at once and pointed their flashing cameras toward the entrance.

In a press conference with participation of 50-60 major mass media outlets in Hongkong like Myungbo newspaper, Eastern Daily and TVB, the reporters asked the singer about the release of his latest English single album and his feelings when coming to Hong Kong for the finale of his Asia Tour.

Kim Junsu said “When I first started my solo activities, I hesitated due to many restrictions but while releasing the album and starting my tour, I gained back a lot of confidence along the way and I am happy to hold my Asia tour’s finale in Hong Kong. I am excited at the thought of watching the beautiful night view of Hong Kong. As soon as I came here, I feel that this is a friendlly city and so many fans have also come here for me so I want to thank everyone for that.”

Kim Junsu also talked about the reason of releasing his English single “Before starting the World tour, I want to give all of my fans around the world a gift so I came to the US and worked together with a great composer Automatic for the song ‘UNCOMMITTED’.”

Then, “I chose to sing in English because it is the language that all fans around the world can understand the most and I also think that when I sing this R&B urban-pop song originally in English, the feelings will be able to revive much better so I gave it a try.” He also added “I want to continuously and wholeheartedly take on challenge as an artist under the name XIA.”

During the conference, reporters listened carefully to what Kim Junsu said and when he expressed his good impression for Hong Kong, the conference room was filled with laughter and harmonious atmosphere.

Besides, the media reporters in Hong Kong are also good at Korean language. According to C-JeS Entertainment, “When Hong Kong reporters handed in their business card, they all greated us in Korean. During the phototime of Kim Junsu, they also called him in Korean ‘Here. Please look here’. Because the media heard that the degree of perfection of Kim Junsu’s Asia tour is high, they also put more interests in the concert.”

Kim Junsu made his resolution “I will give my best at my Asia tour’s finale and present everyone with an excellent performance.” Kim Junsu’s ‘XIA 1st Asia tour in Hong Kong’ concert will be held at Hong Kong Convention center at 9pm KST on August 26.

JYJ’s Jun Su recently said he won’t stop challenging as XIA.”

 

On August 26, C-Jes Entertainment, Jun Su’s agency, reported that Jun Su said, “I hesitated to release a solo album at first because of many bad conditions, but I gained confidence while I was on a world tour after releasing a solo album,” in a press interview, which was held at the Renaissance Conference Room in Hong Kong on August 25 at 4:00 p.m. (local time).

Regarding his new single recorded in English, Jun Su said, “Before going on a world tour, I wanted to give a special gift to my fans all around the world, so I made “Uncommitted” with the famous American composer Automatic. Because English is a global language, I chose to sing the song in English, but this R&B urban pop song sounds better in English.”

Jun Su also said, “I won’t stop challenging as XIA.”

Regarding his visit to Hong Kong, Jun Su said, “I was excited to see the beautiful night view of Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a very friendly city, and I thank you so much for coming to see me. I’m so happy to hold the last concert of my Asian tour in Hong Kong.”

Around 50 to 60 media sources in Hong Kong, such major newspapers and TV stations as Myung Bo Newspaper, Dong Bang Daily News Paper, and TVB, attended the press interview. The reporters listened to every word of Jun Su carefully. When Jun Su expressed his affection for Hong Kong, the interview room was filled with laughs.
