Junsu’s interview from Asiana Airlines journal

This fall, there’s a korean musician who tours around the world with his music and dance: XIAH JUNSU, once a member of TVXQ and now Kim Junsu, a member of JYJ and a musical actor. With rewriting K-pop history, he is keeping his fresh and bold steps by releasing his first solo album under the name of ‘XIA.’ His step is so brave as if he tries to reach the apex of K-pop power in his every concert on the worldwide tour. He participated in the minutest part of the recording process of the latest album, showing his firm determination as an artist. Where does this young man, who his shaping his own future, get his confidence from? We tried to answer this question through an e-mail interview as the singer was about to wrap up his successful New York and LA concerts.
 
 
 
Q. What is the overall keyword of the latest album <TARANTALLEGRA>?
A. There are largely two words: XIA and Unequalled. In light of putting all music that I want to do and I can do, ‘XIA’ is the word expressing everything I’ve been showing to the people. There are a variety of genre like pop, dance, ballad, R&B, hiphop, and electronics. In light of no TV promotion, I thought I had to make top-notch music and focused on ‘Unequalled’ music which leads the unequalled trend.
 
 
Q. You once said the title song TARANTALLEGRA is not a song to listen but a song to watch.
A. Yes. The latest music is inspired from the musical ELIZABETH in which I was participating. With acting the mysterious and charismatic DEATH who stands between a god and a man, I made this dream-like pop song. The title means a spell to make people dance. I tried to make a dramatic and extraordinary music video and put effort in details including fashion and choreography. This song can be completed with visual factors.
 
 
Q. You becomes the first Korean soloist singer to have concerts in Mexico, Brazil, and Chile. What makes this worldwide tour begin?
A. During JYJ’s worldwide tour I came to know there are many fans in North&South America and Europe and was motivated to work harder. I earn passion and energy from overseas fans’ response. After releasing the solo album and doing the Asia tour, I’ve earned more confidence. And, the main reason is ‘not to be complacent and hesitate but to move forward to a bigger goal.’
 
 
 
Q. (invisible)
A. (invisible) Musical teaches me a joy to interprete the established one into my own and to cooperate with other performers and staff to complete it. And I realize another potential I never knew, and it inspires me not only as a musical actor Kim Junsu but also as a singer XIA.
 
 
 
Q. After nine years from your debut, you can be more active in working and you seem to have a sense of accomplishment.
A. There’s happiness beyond a sense of accomplishment. Currently I’m not following the road that someone shows me, but coming up with ideas by myself and doing what I want. It’s so hard but rewarding. It heightens a sense of satisfaction as a singer. Compared with the past, I think I got maturer and knowledge of the world, and gradually grew into a man.
 
 
 
Q. You went to the other side of the world with K-pop. Our expectations are high for your future.
A. I’m grateful for big love and I have to try harder and think more. Like the latest solo album or worldwide tour, I will try new musical and continue my challenge in music. JYJ’s long-time-prepared 2nd worldwide album will be proceeded next year.

Kim Junsu Tops the August V-chart of China YinYueTai & a Music Critic Gives His Comments

Music critic for the August V-chart of China YinYueTai: BaoBao (爆爆), the Executive Chief Editor of the South Korea Division of Cool Music (Cool轻音乐), a famous Chinese magazine for K-pop & J-pop

Today, Kim Junsu has the first-class background, the first-class talent, the first-class diligence and the first-class popularity, so it is almost as sure as nails that his new single—Uncommitted—will top the August V-chart. What’s more commendable than his incredible talent is that he never forgets who he is despite all the fame and success he has gained. Unquestionably he is now in a position where he can make his fans go crazy for him by only doing some sexy duckbutt-shaking or high notes. But he doesn’t want to stay where he is. He wants to be a real singer, a singer who wants to make everyone fall for his singing and dancing in spite of the lack of fair promotion on TV.

A globally best team was put together for Uncommitted. This R&B pop song, written and composed by Bruce Automatic Vanderveer, takes Junsu away from the K-pop world and into the western music world. Although one cannot connect Junsu in reality with the playboy described in the MV, Junsu’s acting as a good man with a playboy history is convincing since he has proven himself that he can successfully express temptation, Yuppie and darkness through his eyes. In this MV directed by Marc Klasfeld, a famous MV director for super stars, Junsu is telling you a love story through his eyes in every scene. With “Angel Xiah” (a characteristic gesture of Junsu, with both hands under his chin, a slight tilt of his head and the tadpole-like smiling eyes) in our memories, Junsu has grown up to be a brave and reliable man. Uncommitted? No. Junsu has been fulfilling the commitments he’s made to himself and his fans, as always; and he has been surprising us, as always.

Notes:
Only the Junsu-related is translated.

[NEWS] Media and fans unanimously saying “XIA HOLIC!” … Taiwan’s response to Kim Junsu’s solo concert

From all news from taiwan concert,

this is the only news I love ^^

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Media and fans unanimously saying “XIA HOLIC!” … Taiwan’s response to Kim Junsu’s solo concert

Media and fans unanimously saying “XIA HOLIC!”

-Highly praising, saying, “Songs of Treasure Island” … Taiwan’s response to Kim Junsu’s solo concert
‘Perfect! Never seen such a singer!’


After successful ‘XIA 1st Asia Tour in Taiwan’ concert on June 23 at the Taiwan University Stadium, the local community has shown enthusiastic response to Kim Junsu(XIA).


Taiwanese major media including the Liberty Times, the China Times, the Apple Daily,  and the Associated Times put significance on news of Kim Junsu’s concert. The Taiwanese media said in chorus, “A splendid and gorgeous man Kim Junsu has captivated Taiwanese fans on the day of Dano.”


The local media summed up his concert with emotional words – ‘conduct with a wand,’ ‘songs of treasure island.’ In particular, they introduced in details his profile such as his age, body size, and awards career and statistics concerned to the current concert, raising the pubic’s interest.



Journalist watching his concert on the spot also unanimously praised his concert.


Editor Yo Peryung of Hanryugam said, “I was able to confirm again that he is a talented singer by witnessing him do live performances, without any error, which is equalled with what I saw from his music video.” And he added, “Beautiful voice and perfect harmony between songs and performances. His concert was a series of surprise and admiration. I’ve never seen such a concert. I’m very happy seeing such a star like Kim Junsu on the spot.”


Reporter Ri Lyupyung of the same journal said, “Kim Junsu’s voice has a wide range of emotion. Only with his voice, music can be completed.” And he added, “Today’s concert was same. His deep and broad spectrum of emotion was conveyed to the audience and they received and absorbed his emotion.”


Journalist Gang MUnsun from the Taiwan Gakchun said, “Kim Junsu’s merit is his astonishingly explosive ability of seizing the stage.” He acknowledge Kim Junsu’s capability, with saying, “Yesterday he was a mild and pure boy at the press conference but today he gave greatly different impression with very powerful performances. It is rare to see such a singer who have mixed image – both pure and powerful.”


Another reporter from other media complimented, by saying, “It is hard for me to understand how sexiness and charisma can coexist in a man. During the concert I was fully fascinated by him. I was greatly inspired by him controlling the stage from the beggining to the end and throwing himself completely without overlooking trivial things.”



Fans were showing the same response. Wang Yujung said, “His great merit is that he always shows perfect performances regardless of genre, from dance music to ballad song and to musical number. And he really has a wide spectrum of charm.”


Hanna from Taichung said, “As time goes by, he gets much stronger, and shows anew aspect that we’ve never seen. He has attraction that we cannot escape from. He has a remarkably surprising ability from singing and performance to writing lyrics and composing.”


Huh Yunjung was close to tears, mentioning the video showed during the concert, “I was deeply touched by him constantly trying and preparing for the best performances even at the time we cannot see him. I made up my mind to put full effort in everything I do as he does.”


Meantime, Kim Junsu is on his Asia tour after releasing his first solo album, and now mobilized as many as 26000 audience in four countries.
