Ahead of their Japanese fanmeeting concert coming June, it is known that Dong Bang Shin Ki Xiah JunSu, Micky YooChun and Hero JaeJoong will promote under the nickname of ‘J.Y.J’.

Previously an official announcement came that the group will discontinue their activities as Dong Bang Shin Ki after the 3 members’ discord with their agency SM Entertainment. And coming 5th June, the 3 members will hold a large scale fanmeeting concert in Tokyo Dome, and they will be holding the concert as ‘J.Y.J’ made up of the initials of each of the members.

A representative of the 3 members revealed on 19th May, “Ahead of their event, AVEX has decided to go with ‘J.Y.J’ for the logo for the concert. Even though they will promote as J.Y.J for the concert, it is not their confirmed group name. We will not know the group name until AVEX releases an official announcement.”

Meanwhile, there will be 4 fanmeeting concert performances for their upcoming event. For more information: here

Idol groups seem to be evolving every day. Some of them are honing their talents in the composition and lyrics fields. They are showing off their ‘musician’ sides by including their compositions in their albums.

The representative of these new composing idols is the group TVXQ. All the members of the group are capable of composing and writing lyrics.
They have released around 20 self-composed songs in Korea and Japan. It is said that they have around 100 unreleased songs that they composed and wrote lyrics for.

Xiah Junsu’s solo single , which is going to be released on the 26th, is also his own composition.

(omitted)

A celebrity representative stated, “The idol group members’ active participation when it comes to composing and writing lyrics is connected to their futures. Their actions can be interpreted as an acceptance of the fact that their group activities will not last forever and a fight for survival and self-sufficiency in the future.”

Styled with the “wet look” (laughs), producing a very sexy music video

Q: With the recording and promotions for your single [XIAH], your solo activities have officially started. How does this feel?

JS: I’m nervous as there are a lot of things that I am trying for the first time, but I’m also very happy. I believe that this opportunity will give me a chance to show everyone a side of me that I have never shown before.

Q: The title track for this single is “Intoxication”, which is quite a cool dance song.

JS: It was selected from a couple of songs that I wrote for my solo debut, and I produced it as well. I wanted to give it a more R&B feel.

Q: What was the process of the song-writing and production like?

JS: First, I looked at the rhythm of the song, which is the most important for a dance tune. The rhythm must be one that makes you feel like dancing, even before adding the rest of the instruments. Then, I used this feeling to produce the song. The melody of the chorus came into my mind first, and using that as a focal point, I created the rest of the song, singing and writing at the same time.

Q: The lyrics for the song are quite mature!

JS: Yes, because we wanted to express a mature feeling through the song so there was a lot of focus on the breathing. In the PV, we also went for a wet hair look, completing the cool sexy image we wanted to produce, please look forward to it.

Wanting to show everyone XIAH’s music

Q: “Kanashimi no Yukue” (End of Sorrow) is a totally different song, a ballad.

JS: The instrumentation of this song contains only the piano and strings, and has no other instruments or harmony. I wanted everyone to be touched by the meaning of the lyrics of the song.

Q: The song’s lyrics are about the feelings when leaving the one you love, is there a part of the song that you especially feel for?

JS: “Shiawase wa Owaru yori Kawaru houga Bokuni wa samishii.”(Trans: Happiness to me, compared to ending, change is even lonelier.) If the reason for breaking is due to circumstances, then in this situation, as long as there is still love then there will still be hope. But if it is a change of heart, then you can only accept this, and that is truly the end.

Q: This kind of song lyric should have a lot of meaning and feeling in it, it should be rather difficult to understand and express this?

JS: It’s difficult…but since I’ve always been doing this, I guess I’m used to it. (Laughs)

Q: This song gets stronger towards the end, and this leaves a deep impression on people.

JS: Even though it may not express the actual storyline in the lyrics, but the song needs to create this kind of atmosphere. Via the song, we want to people feel the content of the drama, so we added some changes.

Q: “Kimi Ga Ireba ~Beautiful Love~ is also a very different kind of Ballad.

JS: “Kanashimi no Yukue” is ultimately a sad ballad, while “Kimi ga Ireba ~Beautiful Love~ is more tumultuous, and is a ballad that ends hopefully, so it presents a different kind of emotion.

Q: Lastly, please talk about what else you plan to challenge in the future?

JS: There are many things, but firstly I wish to show people a performance that truly belongs to “XIAH.” I will also work harder on song writing, so please look forward to it.

Yunho starred in the television drama [No Limit~ Heading To The Ground], and took up the challenge of portraying the character of Bong Gun, who is passionate yet constantly gets into trouble.

“Bong Gun is someone who is very innocent. Even when he faces an obstacle, and it is very tough, he will work very hard to overcome the obstacle, and in the process of it, mature at the same time. This is quite similar to my own life experience and that was why I wanted to try out for this character. I also met up with numerous obstacles and challenges before my debut, but I always believed that I would make it on stage one day, and this belief is very similar to that of Bong Gun’s.”

Through this drama, I had a deeper understanding of the differences between being a singer and being an actor.

“A singer has to be able to let the audience experience a range of emotions with about three minutes of music. However, in a drama, we have to work closely together with the crew, and from the first to the sixteenth episode, be able to act out the character in such a convincing way that it will allows the audience to see him grow and mature. As this is my first television drama, feeling anxious is inevitable, but I am glad I was able to act out the character of Bong Gun, who matured as the drama progressed. I feel that I have grown myself. Even though the filming has ended, Bong Gun still lives in my heart.”

The character is a soccer player, and so, in order to play out the character well, Yunho would play the sport as often as he can when he has the time.

“I would play soccer with the crew during break or resting times, and would practice stopping the ball amongst other skills. I enjoyed myself a lot as I like soccer myself. Also, as most of the moves are pretty special, we often had to re-take a couple of times before we succeeded. It was really tough, and I hope everyone will pay more attention to those parts. Bong Gun has a soccer player whom he looks up to, and as for me, I like Argentina’s Messi and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo. Also, this year is the World Cup, and Asia is on a strong momentum; if Korea and Japan were to determine the victory, it would be great.”

Seeing a happy expression on his face as he talked about soccer really left a deep impression on us.
Furthermore, when asked if he will take on more challenging roles as an actor after this performance, he replied confidently, “I want to continue to act different roles like that of a villain; something that is not just limited to the image of “Uknow Yunho”. I hope for everyone to see me in different portrayals of different characters. My strength is that I would take up any challenge passionately, because I am a hardworking person. It doesn’t take talent alone to succeed. Michael Jackson was actually a very hardworking person too.” He also mentioned later that he really likes Michael Jackson.

Jaejoong came to cheer Junsu……

This Monday, XIAH junsu performed in MJ’s program, which was filmed in front of the live audience at NHK Hall.
It has been a long time since his last apprearance in Kouhaku.
He passionately sung his solo song with the dancers.
Thank you for all of you who came to support him at the hall.
For those who could not come, please look forward to the broadcast.

Oh, Jaejoong came to cheer on Junsu before the performance.
The two were having fun making believe that “The junior fellow Jaejoong is taking care of the senior Junsu”.
Jaejoong was playing the role of the assistant stylist, and he was dangling packing tape and vinyl tape from his waist. He was continuously playing around Junsu, handing him towels and drinks.


So, this is the photo after the performance.
