[NEWS] JYJ’s Junsu: “The Only Person Who Will Break PSY’s Record Is PSY Himself”

[NEWS] JYJ’s Junsu: “The Only Person Who Will Break PSY’s Record Is PSY Himself”

On November 29 at a hotel in Germany, JYJ’s Junsu made statements concerning singer PSY. He said, “Achieving Billboard Top 10 is hard even for American singers, so for PSY to reach top two with a song sang in Korean was an amazing accomplishment. Realistically, I think it would be hard for other Korean singers to break his record, except maybe PSY himself. Perhaps, and hopefully, we could be the one to break the record.”

Junsu continued, “Music is not like soccer where you can keep a clear score. When I say my goal is to succeed in music, what I mean is to improve people’s view on KPop music.”

He also shared the story of how he first saw “Gangnam Style” MV. He said, “When I was in U.S. to shoot “Uncommitted” MV, an American actor for this MV showed me “Gangnam Style” MV on his cellphone.”

Junsu has been a member of DBSK, and then JYJ, and became a top star in Korea. As a member of JYJ, his popularity has spread to Japan, and the rest of the world including in North and South America.

In May 2012, Junsu has released a solo album “Xia” and has performed in Asia, North and South America, and Europe. He will be completing his world tour on December 30 in Oberhausen in Germany.

Fans of TVXQ Claim Pearl Red Shouldn’t Be Used on Psy Items

Fans of TVXQ Claim Pearl Red Shouldn’t Be Used on Psy Items

 A heated controversy over the color to use on Psy items is going on.

On October 20, a posting titled “We should ask fans of Psy for a public apology“ was put up on a community website and is causing a sensation.

This is because K-pop fans use a color in order to represent their idol stars. According to K-pop lovers, each K-pop act has its own color, distinguished from others.

The post writes: “The color of the light stick for Psy―pearl red―has been in use for TVXQ. We have been using the color for 9 years now. Don’t try to take away our colors.”

With this, fans of TVXQ are requesting that pearl color items for Psy should be banned from using and selling and fans of Psy should make an immediate, public apology.

Meanwhile, netizens are showing conflicting opinions about the color controversy.

O.K. I know that it has been months, so Momma Cha finally succumbed to seriously looking into this Gangnam Style Phenomena, especially since it is raising world awareness of Korean and Asian entertainment styles. Obviously it is taking America (and other places) by storm.
Therefore, I am featuring an exclusive Gangnam Style post. BTW. You will not find me dancing Gangnam style, but for those who dig this–Hang On, Pardner!!!
