Xiah Junsu is the first ever idol to prepare a musical concert with his own name headlining it.

Perhaps such is the reason why he’s working harder than ever preparing for his four day musical, set to begin on October 7th. Junsu will be working alongside musical stars such as Seo Bumseok, Min Young Ki, Shin Young Sook, and others.

Already having received the rookie award for “Mozart!” at the Musical Awards, Junsu became widely known for his strong concentration skills and the amount of effort he puts into his rehearsals.

In a recent meeting at his rehearsal hall, Junsu met with reporters and honestly confessed his thoughts regarding his first ever self named concert.

Thank you for your interest. The pressure of being alone is bigger than ever, being the first concert under my name. This performance was only possible with the support of the director and producers. We’ve aready been rehearsing together for three months now so the level of synchronization with the other actors is as great as ever. We’re all working hard and I believe that we’ll be able to show everyone a great concert.”

The concert seats a 10,000 member audience and began production last May.
I released a single in Japan in May and this will be the first time I’m performing one of the songs in Korea. The song holds a message of my feelings for my fans.” Junsu’s “Intoxication” is considered one of the highlights of his musical, being the first ever performance in Korea.

Co-producer Yoo Heesung revealed, “‘Mozart!’ was sold out in February and was successfully completed. Junsu’s concert will be like a galla in style where the actors will be able to connect with the audience more as opposed to singing a few songs and going off stage. Levay also fell in love with Kim Junsu’s performance after watching him and has expressed that he would love to produce songs together. He also said that he will be writing a song specifically for Kim Junsu.

Sylvester Levay is a world famous composer, also having worked on “Mozart!” alongside playwright Michael Kunze.

One member of the musical revealed, “Kim Junsu never misses a day of rehearsal. None of us anticipated too much since he is a famous idol star but he has exceeded all of our expectations. He works very hard.

With so much effort being put into his musical, what meaning does it hold to him? Junsu replied, “A musical is a medium that gives me bravery and strength. It’s not just a stage that allows me to sing and act. It’s not something that I can just lightly accomplish, but rather something that I want to consistently work on into my future.

The interview concluded with a question on TVXQ and whether he kept in contact with the members. Junsu simply replied, “Each individual member is working hard on his activities. Just watching each other work feels like support in itself.

In KBS 2TV's drama "SungKyunKwan and Scandal" starring Micky Yoochun has its filming schedules set. The director of the drama expressed: "From October, even though Micky Yoochun will have begun his Asia Tour, he will return to Korea to film scenes on days where he doesn't have a concert."

The producers say: "Filming 'SungKyunKwan and Scandal' had been agreed upon to begin in September, and even though there are slight changes in the schedules, filming cannot be totally avoided in October.

Micky Yoochun, along with YoungWoong Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu, under the name of "JYJ", will begin their Asia Tour mid-October. They will begin their tour in Thailand's Bangkok on the 15th of October, then to Hong Kong, Taiwan and other locations.

He also stated that: "At the current rate of filming, while Micky Yoochun participates in his Tour, broadcast of the drama will not be affected."

This is Raemong Raein's Lee Hyun Wook.

The articles that used to say that SungKyunKwan Scandal had turtle-like ratings are now saying things like "SungKyunKwan Scandal, reaches highest ratings to date of 10.2%' and 'SungKyunKwan Scandal hits double digit ratings... Will the drama cause an uprising?'

I was very happy as I searched through the articles when I woke up. And with it, I remembered saying in my last post that double digit ratings were our goal and that I would write once more when we reached that goal. So I have returned, with the somewhat fearful memories of the last verification issue.

Now, I feel as though you all are very close to me. Because I now feel we are all part of the SungKyunKwan Scandal family haha.

I feel as though I should set a new goal for ourselves. I'm thinking of cautiously setting a goal of ratings in the 20s.

So shall I cautiously say something about what will happen next in the story?

In episodes 11 and 12, Seon Joon and Yoon Hee go to an island~~~ But Seon Joon gets a little sick~~~~ Such scenes will be shown to you all next week.

We have been filming nonstop for the past 100 or so days since the first time we began filming in May 27th, 2010. During the hot summer, we thought about how hot and tiring it was. But we have spent so much time with SungKyunKwan Scandal that now we worry about the cold. All this time spent on a project is making the staff and actors weary and tired too.

I believe this is when they need your love more than ever before.

The double digit ratings gave us all a new strength.

We've been getting contacts from broadcasting and newspaper companies. It seems as though the interest in our drama has risen. We've finally gotten some popularity haha.

We will work hard to make the remaining ten episodes better to create a higher quality drama.

I hope you will support us till the end.

JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) who just released OST recording song for KBS Drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ entitled ‘Chajada’, blew hot issue as the song notched top candidate spot on the 1st October broadcast of KBS 2TV ‘Music Bank’.

For a drama OST to climb up top candidate spot in music program is already a very unusual one, especially when this song is not even promoted due to the current situation surrounding JYJ, therefore this can be said as an extraordinary accomplishment.

In regard to support Micky Yoochun’s formal acting debut, Xiah Junsu and Youngwoong Jaejoong participated in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ OST which was shortly after its release on September 16th, continues occupying offline music charts and has been sold over 110,000 copies. The jackpot of this album just continues marching forward.

JYJ shared their impression, “Despite the continuing difficult situations, we thank our fans for keep supporting and backing us up. Especially for today’s ‘Music Bank’ where we’re nominated as candidate for the 1st spot, this is the first accomplishment by JYJ that is achieved by extraordinary means. Now we gain more confident about the result of the soon coming up new album. We will repay the love of fans by showing great appearances in the future.”

Meanwhile, on the coming October 12th, JYJ new album ‘The Beginning’ in collaboration with America’s top pop producer Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins is going to release and will start the full-scale activities.
