Jaejoong interview 130124

Kim Jaejoong revealed the reason why there’s no ‘Thanks to’ in his solo album.

We met with Kim Jaejoong, who recently released his solo album ‘I’, at a cafe in Gwanghwamun for an interview. There were many people who helped him in the process of becoming a rocker, and he must have many people who he’s thankful to since this is his first solo album, but he didn’t include them in his album.

His response was short and strong, “I’m going to do it when the next JYJ album is released.” He continued to add, “I should have written a ‘Thanks to’  since this is my first solo album. I have so many people I’m thankful to, but I worried that people’s feelings would get hurt if I accidentally left someone out. If this was a JYJ album, Kim Junsu or Park Yoochun would have mentioned them, even if I actually did forget someone..”

Regarding the members’ response to his solo album ‘I’, Kim Jaejoong said, “Junsu likes ‘Mine’ and Yoochun likes ‘One Kiss’.” He also dropped a bomb(!) when he said, “Yoochun recently went to China, and he said that when he heard ‘One Kiss’, he immediately thought, ‘I need a drink right now.’ It seems like he enjoys binge drinking.”

Kim Junsu and his fans’ donation work is just as amazing as him becoming the double award winner of the Golden Ticket Awards

Kim JunSu of JYJ has become a double award winner of the Eighth Golden Ticket Awards. Even though idol singers trying out musicals have become some sort of a trend, Junsu is unique in a sense that no one else has been as active and successful as him. An important fact here is that his receiving two awards is not a mere act of fan service to please his idol fandom.

What is interesting about the Golden Ticket Awards is that this award is to celebrate ticket power. It is an award that shows true worthiness of successful musicals in a sense that the awards are given to so-called money-generating musicals. It is interesting to see that Kim Junsu received two awards for the Male Musical Actor and the Concert Musician in very specialized awards as this one.

JYJ Kim JunSu’s worth that dominates the musical market is simply amazing

The Golden Ticket Awards is rather interesting because it celebrates the persons with the most ticket power on the stage. [Getting this award] is a great accomplishment because it chooses the persons that are truly vouched for and recognized by producers.

 Kim Junsu received the Popularity Award and the Best Male Lead award in 2012’s Korean Musical Awards.  He really is a musical star that possesses both popularity and capabilities. A fandom may be able to work hard so that a musical actor can receive the Popularity Award. However, the Best Male Lead Award cannot be influenced by fans in that fashion. Receiving the Best Male Lead Award means that the actor has truly exhibited excellent talent as a musical actor.

Interpark, a ticket selling and distribution company, recently announced winners for the Golden Ticket Awards after they processed relevant information such as the number of tickets sold, additional points based on ranking, and on-line polls. Kim JunSu took the first place in both Musical (Male Actor) and Concert.

Kim Junsu who played the lead role of Tod in Musical ‘Elisabeth’ showed strong ticket power through his solo concerts as well as ‘Xia Ballad & Musical Concert’ that was held for 3 days at the end of December. It is only natural that he took two awards in a sense that he boasted unmatched presence in terms of ticket power.

“Kim JunSu receiving Musical Award in the Golden Ticket Award after he received the Best Male Lead Award [in the Korean Musical Awards] is evidence that he is sincere about musicals as well as possesses high box-office values.”

“It’s surprising that an idol singer took the first place in Musical. Kim JunSu proved that he is much loved by audiences of all ages.”

It was natural that compliments poured in when he received an award for ticket power on top of the Best Male Lead award. There is a saying that goes “grasshoppers only last for a season” [T/N: popularity or something/something’s dominance in one area is fleeting]. There are people who only consider musicals a quick business to generate income. There are idol singers that plunge into musicals using their popularity.     

  xiah junsu

  The Idol singers’ advance into musicals seems to be a win-win business strategy between idols [and the musical industry]. Idols’ appearances in musicals have always been the target of criticisms because idols singers in musicals, rather than securing their place as sincere musical actors, were more about boosting ticket sales [using their popularity].

Unlike idols who considered musicals as dabbling into musicals and leaving their marks in the industry, Kim JunSu secured his place as a true star actor in the musical market. The fact that Kim JunSu proved his value as a true musical star, not just a mean to sell more tickets, confirms once again that he should not be called a mere idol singer. 

“I really received so much love this past year. I thank my fans that cheered for me every time I stood on the stage.”

“I hope the audience that was with me while I was on the stage felt happy and gained happy memories. I think the best way to repay their love for my performances and music is doing my best and performing well on the stage.” The Eighth Golden Ticket Awards double awards winner Kim JunSu did not forget to thank his fans who always supported him.

Some criticized that it was unfair for people who did musicals their whole lives. Their logic is that it does not make sense that all kinds of awards, almost impossible to receive even after doing musicals the whole life, were given to Kim JunSu who debuted only a couple of years ago.

If [an actor] has no talent and skills and still receives an award, he deserves criticism. The fact that these awards that even musical actors with long careers cannot receive were awarded to Kim JunSu means that he has that much of talent and he does his best.

 What is even more interesting and meaningful than Kim JunSu receiving awards is this “donation culture”. His fans are also part of it. By donating all the gifts that poured in from all over the world for his solo concerts and musicals, he showed his quality as a star that act together with his fans.

Rice wreaths that his fans sent Kim JunSu were sent to the underprivileged such as children who cannot afford to bring lunch to school. 2,000 briquettes that 20 families can use for one month were sent to underprivileged senior citizens who live by themselves that use briquettes but cannot afford to buy them. 6,000 egg wreaths were donated to food banks nationwide to relieve malnutrition problems among the underprivileged such as children who live by themselves without parents and senior citizens who live by themselves.

It is a beautiful thing that a star and fans come together to share what they have with their neighbors in need of help. Kim JunSu who was recognized as a talented musical actor. Kim JunSu who proved his top worth through awards that celebrate ticket power. Kim JunSu is a true star with both talent and skills.

And his fans that makes their star even more special by actively participating in charity work makes everyone around them happy. Kim JunSu and his fans’ charity work feels even more amazing than Kim JunSu becoming a double award winner. And maybe it is because Kim JunSu and his fans seem to have beautiful souls that help the less fortunate neighbors around them.

Although its legal proceedings with SM Entertainment have come to a conclusion, JYJ is still unable to appear on TV as singers.

As such, JYJ member Kim Jae Joong recently came to voice his sorrow at being unable to perform on TV.

In a recent interview with enews, Kim Jae Joong said, “It′s not just our problem, but we′re really sorry.”

Kim Jae Joong, Park Yoo Chun and Kim Junsu, who were members of TVXQ (DBSK) at the time, demanded their contract with SM Entertainment be cancelled, filing a lawsuit against the agency in 2009. Their opinion was that their 13-year contract with SM was too long, and that the division of profits were set at the agency′s advantage.

As the court acknowledged that it “approves individual promotions,” the members have continued to promote through dramas, albums and concert tours inside and outside Korea. The group, however, hasn′t been able to appear on music or variety shows. The three main channels defended their avoidance of the group with the assertion that its appearance could have an affect on the court decisions.

The long battle came to an end in December with an agreement between SM and JYJ, but the main channels are still treading carefully around the issue of the group′s televised appearances.

Kim Jae Joong said about the lack of televised promotions, “People around me tell me ′you′re doing great even without television′ or ask ′aren′t you doing okay without it?′ but that′s how it looks when you see things from JYJ′s point of view. Celebrities need to approach their fans through the media, but for us, it′s the fans who have been seeking us and our music.”

He added, “Elementary school students these days don′t know us. Though they do know us, they know us as actors, so that′s saddening. We′ve spent almost four years this way, and we want to repay our fans who have been coming in to visit us.”

In the meantime, Kim Jae Joong released his first solo mini album Mine on January 17. The title song has been received as a revival of traditional rock.

[NEWS] Kim Jae-Joong, “It’s sad that we cannot appear on programs… It’s not just a problem of ours”

Kim Jae-Joong talked of hardships of restricted broadcast activities.

Kim Jae-Joong, who released first solo album ‘Mine’ recently, had an interview at Seoul Sang-Am Stanford Hotel on January 22 and revealed his thought toward appearing on broadcast programs. He has been not able to appear on music and entertainment program even though the dispute between JYJ and SM Entertainment finished. He is appearing on drama because of acting activities, but he has not been able to appear on music and entertainment program for 4 years.

Kim Jae-Joong said, “It’s sad. It’s not just a problem of ours. Some say ‘Why do you have to appear on other broadcast programs while you are acting in dramas and movies’. But we have fans love us and our music. We entertainers need service of showing them what they want.

We had 4 years of restriction, but now we want to repay our fans. I think we need to give bigger service through broadcast or concert. Also, there are elementary student and middle school student fans. I think people around them may not know us. It’s sad.”

Meanwhile, Kim Jae-Joong released first solo album ‘Mine’ on January 17, and is going to hold a concert ‘You’re, My and Mine’ at Ilsan Kintex on January 26 and 27 to meet fans.
