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.

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.

[News] Tarantallegra concert, quality performance on a simple stage

Tarantallegra concert, quality performance on a simple stage

South Korean singer Xia Junsu from music trio JYJ puts on a show during one of his performances for his first Asia tour, Tarantallegra, at Jitec Mangga Dua on Saturday night. (JP/Irawaty Wardany)

Irawaty Wardany, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Entertainment | Sun, 06/17/2012 3:57 PM

The stage for South Korean singer Xia Junsu at JITEC Mangga Dua on Saturday night was far from grand, but that did not stop the fans from being amazed by his live performance.

After more than a one-and-a-half hour delay, the concert finally started at 8:40 p.m. with Xia appearing in a blue outfit, the same color as his hair, which he said was own special preparation after learning that Indonesia was an archipelagic country.

He started the concert with ‘Breath’, one of the songs from his first solo album, Tarantallegra, launched in May, and followed up with ‘No Gain’.

Indonesian fans screamed their lungs out during the concert, waving red light sticks that swayed back and forth with the music.

Xia, who previously promised to try to communicate in Indonesian, fulfilled his intent when he introduced himself saying “Apa Kabar? Saya Xia. Saya senang bertemu kalian” (how are you? I am Xia. I’m pleased to meet you all).

He continued the concert with ballad songs ‘Lullaby’ and ‘Intoxication’ until the 17th song ‘Fallen leaves’.

In the middle of his performance, Xia also showed his quality as a musical performer by singing three of songs from his musical performances ‘The last dance’ from Elizabeth; ‘Why don’t you love me’ from Mozart and ‘I am, I am music’ also from Mozart musical, complete with a theatrical act.

“The concert was amazing, even though I was a bit upset with the delay. Junsu had showed us that he really is a quality singer,” audience member Hany Zakiyah told The Jakarta Post.

She said the performance was worth the Rp 1 million (US$106) she spent to buy the festival ticket.

Xia, a member of trio JYJ, along with Park Yoochun and Kim Jaejoong, had hoped to hold a concert in Jakarta last year but the plans were cancelled due to unclear reasons.

“Xia’s concert is a cure for my disappointment over JYJ’s concert cancellation last year,” Hany said.

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

Music video

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.
