[News] 140126 Yoochun holds a New Year’s fanmeeting with 1000 Japanese fans


JYJ‘s Yoochun held a special new year’s fanmeeting for his Japanese fans!

His label said, “Yoochun had his ‘PARK YOOCHUN 2014 HAPPY NEW YEAR FANMEETING IN SEOUL‘ today afternoon at Gangnam’s The-K Seoul hotel. 1,000 Japanese fans came to Korea for a special New Year’s fanmeeting with Yoochun, and he gave them an unforgettable 200 minutes.

Yoochun started the fanmeeting with Kim Dong Ryul‘s “Aged Song“. He had a cake cutting ceremony to celebrate 10 years since debut as well as his first fanmeeting of 2014. When his fans told him, “We always waited for you“, he answered, “I miss you, too“.

During the talk time, he said, “As I met you, I think I became optimistic and confident.” Since it was the year of the horse, he even gave a fan a picture of a horse he drew himself. He also introduced his Japanese fans to Korean traditional games, and also sang his self-composed song “Walking Spring With Her“.

The fanmeeting representative said, “The fans’ response to Yoochun’s New Year fanmeeting was amazing. It’s also unheard of that 1,000 people came to Korea just for a one-day event. After ‘Rooftop Prince‘ was aired in Japan, he couldn’t go to Japan because of his movie and drama, and that’s why he prepared this fanmeeting. That’s why the response was even hotter.

Yoochun said, “It was a fun fanmeeting because I haven’t had one in a while. I got energy by meeting my fans. I want to perform in Japan this year with JYJ.

[TRANS] 131103 Kim Jaejoong’s Concert, “There Is No Right Answer To The Dress Code Of Innocence And Impurity”


On the 3rd of November, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong held a press conference at a conference room in COEX to commemorate the release of his first full-length album ‘WWW: Who, When Why’ and the end of the Seoul leg of his Asia tour.

Starting off in Seoul on the 2nd of 3rd of November, Kim Jaejoong is set to perform in Yokohama, Japan on the 15th and 16th, in Taiwan on the 23rd and in Nanjing, China on the 7th of December. The Seoul concerts attracted 14,000 fans across two days and were sold out in just 15 minutes. The concert features tracks from his ‘WWW’ album, as well as other songs that Kim Jaejoong likes singing, such as ‘Glamorous Sky’ and ‘Ultra Soul’. Kim Jaejoong will also be singing ‘Makeup’ in Korean, which he himself translated from Japanese.

Kim Jaejoong looked calm yet excited, having already performed the night before at the same venue. The singer said, “This is my first full-length solo album, so everything feels new and I feel great about it. This album has a very strong rock influence infused throughout the whole album. But it’s not just about rock; I’ve incorporated other genres such as pop, punk and hard rock with melodies that are easy to follow to bring more variety to the album.”

Regarding his first concert, Kim Jaejoong said, “I worked really hard for this concert. It’s great that I’ll be able to make it an exciting concert with a live band. I saw the audience bobbing their heads to the beat and jumping along to the music. I was joined by Moon Myung Jin and Kim Beom Soo yesterday. Today, I’ll be joined by Lee Sang Gon and Gummy. It was great to see the audience cheering loudly for the guest singers as well. I believe that the guest singers have helped take my concert up another notch.”


Here is a Q&A session we had with Kim Jaejoong.

-The name of your first full-length album is ‘WWW’.
“Naming the album was a decision I made with our album management team. We talked about creating a story that connects all the tracks from the first one to the last one. In this process, someone came up with the theme of ‘love’, something that anyone can easily experience and understand, and that’s when we thought of ‘Who, When, Why’. In love, you need a person to give your love to, a place to meet that person, and a reason why you loved that person. I believe these three things are important when it comes to love. I’ve incorporated these three things into all thirteen tracks. There are some songs that beat around the bush, and some that are more direct in addressing these three components.”

-The response you’ve received for ‘WWW’ from all around the world has been mostly positive.
“I was so surprised to see such love from countries that I’d never heard about before. I think it’s probably because rock is a genre that anyone can enjoy, no matter where they’re from. I think some people gave my album a listen, even if they didn’t know who I am, because of this.”

-Love is the main emotion of your music in this album.
“Isn’t love one of the emotions that are most often expressed in music?”

-Are there any differences in the concert you held yesterday and the one you’re holding today?
“In terms of stage management, nothing has changed. I guess the only differences are the guest singers who are coming today? But since this is my last performance in Seoul, I won’t hold back and keep going without worrying about my throat or body. I’ll make it a passionate performance.”

-Your dress code of innocence and impurity is quite unique.
“To be honest, there’s no right answer to the dress code of innocence and impurity. Each person’s beliefs and mindset will make their interpretations different. Even if you come dressed in your regular attire, it might look different to others based on their point of view. There’s a moment in the concert where I step back and take a look at the audience’s attire and makeup. It’s not something I do just for my own sake; it’s a time for the audience to take a good look at each other. I think I’ll probably set a dress code for all the upcoming concerts as well.”

-Did anything happen while you were preparing for your concert?
“I used to hold two or three rehearsals every day in the past, but I couldn’t do more than two a day this time around. I tried to hold back because I didn’t want to hurt myself or damage my vocal chords during rehearsals.”

-It’s been 10 years since you made your debut.
“I’m in my tenth year (of becoming a singer) and our 10th anniversary is coming up. I’ve taken on a lot of challenges during these ten years, and I tried so hard to finish everything I started. But all of a sudden, I’ve begun to feel like ‘returning’. There’s something I want to accomplish that I can only do by going back to how I felt during that whole process. I want to go back to the starting line again. I’ve got a new goal.”

-What do you mean by that?
“I guess you could call it going back to how I felt when I first began. I’ve fallen into the dilemma of ‘What should I do from now on,’ and ‘What else do I have left to develop,’ now that ten years have passed. I need something to stimulate me. I feel most concerned when I can’t feel any growing pains. I want to feel the need to continue to grow and fulfill the anticipation of others.”

-What was your proudest moment in the last ten years?
“Right now? When I released my first full-length solo album. A lot of people expressed their concern and support for me. I was conflicted on whether I should release a rock album. But I’m glad to see that so many people have responded positively to it. Even people who aren’t my fans are giving my music a listen. I’m really proud of that.”

[TRANS] 131007 Kim Junsu Lands In Gimpo Airport On The 7th, Not Even A Typhoon Could Stop His Love For Musicals


Kim Junsu, who had been staying in Japan, has made a surprise return trip to Korea.

Kim Junsu left for Tokyo on the 3rd for the Japanese leg of his ‘XIA 2nd Asia Tour Concert’ tour. He plans to stay in Japan for two weeks and meet with a total of 60,000 fans in Nagoya and Yokohama.

However, Kim Junsu made a surprise appearance at Gimpo Airport at 11a.m. this morning, a day before his first concert.

Kim Junsu’s surprise return got him back to Korea for the ’19th Korean Musical Awards’, that was held tonight at 5:20p.m. at Kyung Hee University’s Hall of Peace. Having received the Best Musical Actor Award last year for his role in ‘Elisabeth’, Kim Junsu was scheduled to appear on stage with Ok Joo Hyun to announce this year’s winner.

Kim Junsu’s schedule today was a miraculous occurrence. With news that a typhoon would pass through the Korean peninsula today, Kim Junsu was unable to sleep for several nights at the thought that he would not be able to land in Korea. Luckily, the typhoon rerouted to China, but the news was soon followed by the announcement that another typhoon would be replacing it.

When it was told that the second typhoon would affect Japan on the 8th, the starting day of Kim Junsu’s Japanese tour, a representative of the concert stated, “There’s a high possibility that the plane won’t be able to depart, so please don’t go to the awards ceremony.” As his Japanese concerts are a promise to his fans, Kim Junsu could not brush off the request of his Japanese staff.

After mulling over his possibilities, Kim Junsu decided to fly back to Korea. Kim Junsu’s love for musicals, that not even a typhoon could stop, eventually overcame his Japanese staff’s requests.

Meanwhile, Kim Junsu headed straight for a hair salon in Gangnam as soon as he landed in Gimpo Airport to prepare for the awards ceremony.

[TRANS] 130812 JYJ’s Kim Junsu Says At His Busan Concert, “Singing Would Be Meaningless If There Were No Fans”


JYJ’s Kim Junsu has completed the fourth leg of his Asia tour in success.


A representative of C-JeS Entertainment stated, “Since releasing his second album on the 15th of July, Kim Junsu has successfully toured four cities in a month. Starting in Bangkok, Thailand and moving on to Shanghai, China, and Seoul and Busan in Korea, Kim Junsu has been praised for his ever-evolving stages. Not only did he pull off a perfect performance, but his idea of granting three wishes every concert has been met with an explosive response as a great idea for fan service. The first act of Kim Junsu’s second solo album tour has come to an end.”


This latest tour was named ‘XIA 2nd ASIA TOUR in BUSAN’. The day’s performance was composed of a setlist containing songs from his first and second album, as well as his OST songs. Kim Junsu performed heart-wrenching ballads such as ‘Sorry’, ‘Don’t Go’, and ‘Love is like a Snowflake’, as well as explosive and energetic songs such as ‘Turn it up’, ‘Incredible’ and ‘Fantasy’ with Jeri Slaughter’s dance crew to create the perfect concert.

With Kim Junsu’s concert being held in the city of passion, the response he received was out of this world. Even before the concert had begun, fans began chanting Kim Junsu’s songs together and during the concert, they responded to Kim Junsu’s each and every move. When Kim Junsu sang ‘I’m Confessing Right Now, OK?’, fans held placards that said ‘Junsu, Thank You’ and when he sang ‘Sorry’ for his encore, they all switched to blue fanlights to create a sea of blue. In response, Kim Junsu bowed before the song and said, “Thank you for the blue ocean.”

During ‘Genie Time’, when Kim Junsu granted his fans’ wishes, he sang ‘Golden Star’ from the musical ‘Mozart!’, as well as first part of ‘Cherry Blossom Ending’. The most special wish an encore of ‘Incredible’. The fan had fallen in love with the upbeat rhythm and powerful choreography that had everyone in the venue getting up to dance, and Kim Junsu got back on stage after the concert was over to perform the song a second time.

Jeri Slaughter made a surprise appearance on stage and said, “This is the first time I’ve stepped on stage since Janet Jackson’s concert four years ago. I did my best because I was so impressed by Junsu’s care and attention for his fans. The fans’ reaction and response was amazing. It was an incredible moment! Kim Junsu’s music is a never-ending story. His passion will never die.”

Kim Junsu expressed his gratitude and said, “I believe that releasing albums and holding concerts is a way to repay you all for the love you have given me. Though I became a singer because I love to sing, singing would be meaningless if there were no fans. As long as there are fans out there who want to listen to my music, I will always be here to sing for you.”

Meanwhile, Kim Junsu will now be returning to the stage as a musical actor for the musical ‘Elisabeth’. He plans to kick off the second part of his tour in Sydney, Australia on the 28th of September.
