[Musical Elisabeth's Lead Kim Junsu]

To compare me, who has only participated in three works, with the best senior…

Due to the pressure received for being an idol and overcame it in debut work, ‘Mozart’.

If were to reborn, I would not be an artiste.

During the later half of 2009, musical ‘Mozart’ production team’s EMK musical company had the last contractual discussion with TVXQ member Xiah Junsu. Xiah Junsu was the best as an idol singer but the experience for musical was naught. The performance fee that the company proposed was different from the request by Xiah Junsu’s representative. The 3000 seatings in Sejong Cultural Centre for the performance was considered to be a large hall. “The 3rd floor won’t be filled up anyway,” this was what the production company thought. The situation ended with Xiah Junsu’s representative’s , “Our Junsu can do it.”

“Our Junsu” made it. At the opening of ‘Mozart’ on January 2010, the crowd filled up the three floors of Sejong Cultural Centre. There were hundreds of Japanese middle-aged ladies who held the air ticket in one hand and the other hand holding onto to a binoculars, flying across the sea to see him. Xiah Junsu gained the title of ‘Running Guarantee’ (Performance fee received based on the tickets’s sales) with 30 million won fee. Last year, the online ticketing system crashed for his second work, ‘Tears of Heaven’ and the tickets were sold out within 5 minutes.

“Our Junsu” Xiah Junsu (Kim Junsu) will be the male lead Tod for ‘Elisabeth’ that is opening next February 9th. When we met on the 27th in a cafe at Seoul’s Jeong-dong, Jong-gu, his seemingly thin frame made others curious about the charm that made his noona fans lost their mind over this 25 year-old young adult. He reached 8 minutes later of scheduled time and lowered his head, saying ‘sorry’. His sincerity about punctuality during the practice sessions was complimented by many.

- Your ticket selling power was compared with ‘Musical Sage’ Cho Seung Woo. How do you feel about it?

“It’s really crazy. Please don’t do this. Isn’t Seung Woo hyung the best in musical industry? Although I am thankful, it’s best not to compare with me who is only just about to start my 3rd musical work. If the comparison was made after I acted in more than ten musicals, probably I wouldn’t be wanting to hide away (like now).”

- When you debuted in musical, nobody expected Xiah Junsu to be such successful. Personally, what is the reason behind your success?

“When I received the musical proposal, I did not sleep well for a week. Because this is my first step after independency (from the previous company SM Entertainment), thus I was very troubled. I did heard of discrimination against idols in musical industry too. However, other than me myself, nobody can protect me. Moreover there’s no existence of protective barrier at all. I am very clear about it.”

- The part where you worked hard due to your status as an idol?

“Being an idol is a double-sided blade. Although you are able to easily attained the lead and received the limelight but there’s the enormous hinder. Due to the performance in musical and overcame the obstacle and learnt about life. ‘In this world, having a dream will need to accept the woes as well’, whenever I am listening to the songs in Mozart, I would cry a lot inside me. As an artiste and to face the public judgement, the pressure is huge, and he (musical/Mozart) speak it out for me.”

- Other than the songs in musical, there were a lot of elements added in, which is your favourite?

“When I first stood on the musical stage, I crazily felt that it’s embarrassing. After I have done it, the joy that it brought me was totally different from a concert. In the two hours on stage, I am not idol Xiah Junsu but as someone else. I like this point a lot.”

In July 2009, after the successful injunction filed by him and two other TVXQ members towards SM Entertainment due to unfair contract length and income etc, they emerged as JYJ. However after that, as singers, JYJ are unable to appear on national broadcasting companies. In the one hour, he has been friendly answering everything, however he paused for a while towards such an inquiry.

“One can’t live (in the past). Have to keep holding on and rough it out. I had the thinking that I have to work even harder. To be able to do what we want, I think this is the happiest to us (JYJ).”

- Many teens dreamt to be the next Xiah Junsu?

“I would not be an artiste in my next life. (He repeated this thrice) Of course as of now, I have no regrets in my life. It is very happy to receive love and concern. But after I passed the audition when I was 15, I have never been in my relaxed mode the minute I went out the door. I have never been to Lotte World either. Sometimes I do felt that I’ve wasted it. It is very tough to be receiving provoking comments from others too. However I have to admit that it’s normal to have losses in life and to understand the surroundings and into thankfulness.”

With regards to new work ‘Elisabeth’, “Working with (Ryu) Jung Han hyung who also acted as Tod, (Song) Chang ui and Kim Sun Young noona and Ock Joo Hyun noona who acted as Elisabeth, is the biggest subject (to learn).” “Recently I am only listening to music from musicals. I would like to try choosing works for small-scaled musicals.”

(T/N: only JYJ’s part from the article was translated)

The boy group that released their worldwide album ‘The Beginning’ in 2010 has announced plans to release their second worldwide album this summer.
JYJ officials stated, “During the second half of this year, there are plans to have a worldwide tour and to release the second album before this. Similar to the year before, the members will advancer their album work in America. Furthermore, JYJ has successfully completed their tour in North America, so rather than it being like they are trying to enter a new market (America), it is more of a continuation of their previous activities.

America’s famous artist Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins collaborate with JYJ’s first album, and attracted enough attention to be introduced as hot topic on America’s billboard charts. In regards to this, JYJ’s second album will also be produced in America, and there is also a high chance of more collaborations with other American artists. “However as of now, who will be collaborating and how has not been decided”, officials added.

The screening of JYJ’s (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) documentary has suddenly been cancelled.
The documentary that was filmed at QTV was not aired on broadcast, and so JYJ’s management, CJES, announced that a documentary titled “A Day” would be screened on February 9th.

JYJ had begun holding meetings to discuss details with CGV since December 15th, and their second meeting was on January 16th where they discussed further details. On the 19th, contract details were examined and on the 20th the contract was received. But it was after this day that CGV gave a sudden notice of cancellation by telephone.

JYJ management stated, “At that time, CGV said that the final authorization for the contract had not been given so they needed to initialize that. But on the 25th we received a notice that the contract had been cancelled.”


CGV management stated in this notice, “To the new managers, in regards to the process of briefing that we have conducted for the screening of “The Day”, internal reports and further progress have not been appropriately conducted according to the rules. Internally, to focus on the innovation of “The Day”, it has not been done well according to specific processes, and therefore due to strict regulations we have fallen into this kind of a difficult situation.

JYJ’s management stated, “The business people that own the channel and are abusing their position, CJES will be taking action against CGV for this sudden one sided breaking of a contract through the Fair Trade Commision by filing a complaint to the committee of grievances and complaints.” They added, “For this situation that CGV has created that we don’t understand, we demand for a viable answer.”

(my tweet) [INFO] Today Jan 27 is the 3rd (last) day for Tohoshinki "LIVE TOUR 2012~TONE~" Nagoya (NIPPONGAISHI), starting 18:30JST.

(cr:Kakiyan37, band member, keyboard) Nagoya, the 3rd day! I definetely think I've got fatter, I'll do my best again today!

(cr:soratomax) ball point pen, sold out.

(cr:ayunoya) At the Tohoshinki Gaishi yesterday, the husband of a middle-aged woman was first standing, without holding anything. But when I realized around "BREAK OUT!", he was livened up swinging the stick light, and afterwards, was always swinging the stick light with a smile on his face. The two charmed him in the twinkling of an eye! I saw with my own eyes the moment when he became a fan of Tohoshinki. (Jan 26)

(cr:Sonny_PRIMETIME) Yesterday, RYO-kun of the original TOHO dancers came to cheer us. Again received power from our precious friend http://instagr.am/p/lDctY/

(r:emu331) TONE Nagoya, final day→Yunho was taking a walk around the stage, saying that Changmin's MC is so long!

(cr:jjsakihan) Yunho said "macchi bou (T/N: matchstick, the joke that SMAP taught them)" during singing the song STLヽ(;▽;)ノ

(cr:emu331) a granny in her 70s came out on the wheelchair. It was her dream to see the 2 perform, she came from Osaka with an attendant. She seemed so impressed, she said that her dream had come true(ToT) She even said to me "Please take care going home!" I'm happy! She said she was a fan of Yunho♡

(cr:emu331) The audience was saying its set phrase "Eeee~!!" when Changmin started to introduce the next song. Then Changmin said "This is the truth!!" Again today, the CHOEGANG Changmin in Nagoya!

(cr:emu331) CM "Shiratori-san is beautiful, but she isn't my type xD" YH "She isn't my type, too"

(cr:emu331) Yunho was embarrassed by a voice from the audience "Cuuuute~♡"

(cr:emu331) Yunho was standing too nearby, Changmin really seem to dislike it, and said "Please stop". Are you serious, Changmin?ヽ(^。^)丿 I think you are delighted!

(cr:emu331) The formation and video differs from that of Yokohama! Karaoke together with everyone (^з^)-☆

(cr:emu331) Yunho said "Bigeast and Cassiopeia are friends"

(cr:emu331) during the latter MC part, Changmin said "We want to be Tohoshinki, worthy of the name!"

(cr:ematw1) YH→We are really happy that the Japanese Bigeast and the Korean Cassiopeia are getting along well, and supporting us together! That is the reason we can do our best!! Thank you!

(cr:ematw1) Today, SAM-san came. He was almost always standing during the live, laughing at Yunho & Changmin's MC, and talking notes. SAM hyung! Please take care of Tohoshinki in the future, too(☆^∀^)ъ

(cr:ematw1) When Changmin was introducing the new song to be released in March, his talk was too long, and Yunho was walking round and round the sub stage (*≧∀≦*)

(cr:ematw1) Today, Yunho didn't say anything about his physical condition! Great (^0^)/

(cr:ematw1) At the very first part of Summer Dream, Yunho talked too much, so his talk and the song overlapped! Yunho seemed "OH!", he was really cute xD

(cr:ematw1) CM → When he was on the center lift and high up in the air, Changmin didn't move at all, standing by the iron railing.. Yunho was smiling at everyone. Changmin, do you have fear of heights? xD

(cr:95tomo) Changmin's talk was so long, Yunho was making a gesture with his hands like "shorten the time!" But Changmin wasn't looking at Yunho at all, and continued the talking. The fans were laughing aloud, looking at Yunho (*≧з≦)

(cr:simvanilla) Once there was a time that Yunho had difficulty in singing, and Changmin glanced at Yunho for a moment. Afterwards, Yunho still had the expression that he had the difficulty, then, Changmin was singing with all his might. (For that song, it was the best performance of the 3 days in Nagoya.) Changmin should have thought that he had to help his hyung.

[PIC] (cr:makimarix) https://twitter.com/...3278337/photo/1 The silver tape with Yunho & Changmin's words.

(cr:hyaaaaaz) during an important part in a ballad song, Yunho's voice did not come out. (i don't know if it was because of Yunho's condition, or, we had trouble breathing). I cannot forget Changmin's glance that he sent to his hyung. After that song, the whole audience was cheering "YUNHOOOO!". Everyone was worrying, but we all felt kind hearted.

(cr:50FOB) Nagoya Gaishi 3 days in a row finished!! We did it!! It was the best!! Yesterday, RYO-san of the original Toho dancers came to see us!! Tohoshinki fans are dera (T/N: very much, Nagoya dialect) passionate! Thanks for the 3 days!! http://twitpic.com/8ca7h0

(cr:Achi_wilder) The surging waves, Nagoya 3 days!! I gave out my power the best that I could!! I really think that the power we receive from the audience is great!! It is wonderful that we can get impressed right on the stage.

(cr:mashamaro69) Today's Changmin's vocal was really truly wonderful. It was powerful, and also extending... But I know he will continue to make efforts.. he will never be satisfied. I am proud of such a wonderful man, Changmin

(cr:may0702) Since it was Nagoya, they said "We enjoyed the evening dera (T/N: very much)!" And the two bowed more than 90 degrees, the deepest bow. The last was Yunho's "See you~~♪". I will be looking forward to the two's activities, Tohoshinki. It tells all that there was a long queue for the registration for Bigeast after the performance.

(cr:hiroyunhoho) Yunho didn't say anything about his cold today, but he couldn't sing a phrase during BTT, he coughed after he took the microphone away from himself. At that moment, Changmin glanced at Yunho with great speed. We can see that when Yunho is not in good condition, Changmin takes care of Yunho, and Yunho takes care of Changmin when Changmin's condition is not complete.

(cr:tcramoko) When Yunho walks rapidly ahead the passageway, Changmin quietly follows him with a smile on his face. When it is Changmin's turn to go ahead, he sometimes turns around and checks Yunho, and Yunho gently goes after Changmin. Their balance is miraculous (  ̄▽ ̄)♥

(cr:sam0113, choreographer SAM) Yunho's dance is AWESOME.
