[TRANS] 100419 Junsu At Junho’s Showcase (Fanaccount)


From a Japanese Blog






2010.04.19 Monday
Junho’s Showcase♪

Hello~
I went to Junho’s showcase~~~~~~~
I know everyone is anxious about our Junsu.
I will make a brief report, so all of you can replenish yourselves with the current Junsu…

Junho’s showcase was for full two hours.
The JCB Hall was full with purple lam penlights, up to the 3rd floor.
This time, there were no red penlights.
I think the program was similar to that of Beijing’s.

One hour passed before Junsu appeared on stage…
During the time, Junho performed his Chinese debut dance song, showcased the PV, and the preparation images before Junho’s debut was shown….
Junho was doing his best learning the Chinese pronunciation, dance, and vocalization.
There were family gathering images of dinner, karaoke, and drinking sessions, to support Junho during his preparation days~

At that image, Junsu was making advices as a senior.
After that, in Karaoke, their friend Yongpil joined them and boosted the mood.
Junsu, though sitting, sung the MIROTIC♪
Afterwards, during the drinking session with friends, Junsu’s English was introduced…
(few words omitted)

Junsu seemed as though he was drinking beer~ his face was a little bit red~ he seemed to be enjoying himself with his friends. Junsu in the image was very cute.
Even though it was just a video, my heart ached~~~

Junho went backstage to change his clothes, there were screen images, and then…

Junsu appeared on stage~~
The song was “Greatest Love of All” ♪
Junsu appeared from the center of the stage, wearing a black tight suit.

JUNSU~~~~TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
At “Mozart”, he had so much makeup, so it has been a long time since I was able to see his natural face…
I heard a rumor that he was going to a tanning salon, and his face was not so white~~~
He looked a little bit tired, and I heard that Junho had caught a cold, so maybe both the brothers had them..(a little bit worried)

But, his song was..
Maybe it was because he started to perform in musicals~~
I cannot put into correct words, but previously, Junsu started to sing songs in a thin voice, but this time, his voice was deep and heavy from the beginning!
I thought~ oh~ this should be a technique he achieved through the musicals…
Junsu always performs in a perfect style, but he always goes further and devotes himself more and more, as though there is no limitTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

His appearance from the center of the stage, holding a microphone, was true stateliness.
His expressions during both the quiet and the heartily parts were really matured…
As with the Mozart performance, when Junsu bend down and walked fast on stage to go to all sides,
I was full of tearsTTTTTTTT

Until now, though Junsu have performed on many stages, he sometimes seemed to be nervous and bashful when performing alone… but this time, he was in state.
The size of the hall was rather small and the distance between the audience and Junsu was very near, but Junsu himself was catching the eyes of the audience one by one during singing the song. I thought that I was able to see a true matured artist.
Junsu arranged the last part of the song long and stable, and it really got into my heart.
As always, Junsu’s vocal is lovely~ why should his song get so much into my heart..TTTTT

Junsu sang only one song, but there were the “Twins’ talk” for about 15 minutes♪

First of all, Junsu alone was exchanging simple greetings with the host.
“Today I came to support and cheer my brother Junho. I am more nervous than my brother…
My brother was performing better than I expected, I thought his doing his best is lovely.”

After thinking a little, Junsu answered to the question, “How did Junho change during his debut period?” as, “He changed in many ways.. and he is now very manly~ oh, of course he wasn’t a girl (lol). He seems to be flamboyant.. The charismatic image ? (Lol) that I aimed, he is far better than me. I thought this is a must-win game.”

Oh Junsu~~ your talks are always funny~~ the hall was full of laughter.
Then, it was time for Junsu to call his brother Junho, who was waiting at the wing. He said “How should I call him? Umm.. Juno~♪”

Junho was smiling as he appeared on stage, and the two embraced each other. Junsu was smiling a shy smile. Little Junsu completely fit into Junho (Lol) Junsu, who is slightly smaller than Junho, looked very cute, and my heart missed a beat again. (Junsu is not short, but Junho is the one who’s tall…)

Afterwards, the two sat together in the center of the stage, and the talk time together with the host and the interpreter started.

Junho and Junsu looked at each other, and Junsu said
“We are twins~~ maybe you cannot believe us, but we are biovular twins!”

To the question from the host to Junsu, “What kind of brother was Junho to you?”,
Junsu answered, “My brother was like an elder brother from our chilidhood days, he was always considerate, always kind to me, and we were able to get well together. He is really my elder brother, I tend to forget that he is my twin brother, I am so thankful.”

There, Junho asked “Do you love me?” (Lol)
Junsu “Yes, I love you (Lol)”
Junho “Arigato Gojaimasu” (T/N: thank you. The true word is “Arigato Gozaimasu”.)
Junsu “I am so thankful!” (Lol)

Junsu, the word “considerate” came out so smoothly… oh, his Japanese is OK~

From Junho, “My brother is really like a younger brother.. Though we are in the same position, twins, he always called me the elder brother. He should have had complicated feelings since we are twins.. I thank him for always respecting me as an elder brother. As a singer, he is a great senior, and thanks to him, I am able to stand on today’s stage.”
Junho said all this in Korean. Afterwards, he requested to Junsu “Please translate (T/N: to Japanese)”, but Junsu seemed to be embarrassed, so at the last, the interpreter translated his words.

Junsu “Give it your all!” (Lol)
Junho “Arigato Gojaimasu”

The host requested that the brothers disclose an episode especially here, and Junsu said,
“We got up to mischief.. too far…a lady…a friend (a girl), we picked on her, and we made her burst into tears….
Oh, it was back in our childhood days~ we liked her, so we picked on her a little~”

Host “That girl is so lucky, to have been made into tears by you two~ (Lol).” Junsu burst into laughing.
“So, you are now an adult, so you won’t make ladies cry like that?” (Oh~ thank you host for asking the question.)
Junsu “No, no, I won’t do that kind of things~ (smiling bashfully)~ I will …really.. love her.”

The audience was full of kya~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Host “Which is stronger? When you have a fight, which side wins…..?”
Junsu “Maybe you won’t believe us, but we have never quarreled~”
Junho “Yes, its true” (T/N: in Japanese)
Junsu “We always worked together.. for instance, we beat a junior high school student when we were in elementary school by fighting together~ (Lol)”

(The two are really loving brothers.)

There was a message and advice from Junsu to Junho.
Junsu “When you stand on stage, I want you to think that you are the best in the world….the audience will know.. it is really important as an artist, I think.”

(applause from the audience~~)

Host “Send a yell to your brother.”
Junsu “I think that… you will do your best as you have done until this date~
Really… umm (asking the interpreter for the Japanese word, lol) Oh, genuine. He is a genuine person~
Really…I don’t have anything to say about this point…I believe in him.
He is truly doing his best… (smiling bashfully)”

(Junho was laughing out loud).

In the very last, we were able to hear Junsu’s messages to the fans.

It has been really quite a while since I met face to face with all of you….
Soon….the time that we can meet will…
I think that there will be many chances….everyone….please, a little bit….
Wait for us.
Thank you very much.

(bow)

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Can we meet again? Junsu, will the chances that we can meet increase in the future?

Junsu was so considerate, he did not forget to say “Today is Junho’s showcase. Please enjoy yourselves to the last minute.”

Junsu….
Your haircut was the MIRO style, and the length was more uneven (Lol) His eyebrows are slightly thin…
He had a little suntan. It may be that he was with his brother.. he was smiling bashfully, his ukyankyang hasn’t canged~
He wasn’t nervous, he seemed relaxed, good for you, Junsu!

If I had a younger brother like Junsu… adorable and cute.
Junho seemed more relaxed after Junsu appeared onstage, though bashful, looking at each other, or looking away, so natural..

Junho…
Resemblances Junsu~~ the lines of his jaws~~
Sometimes his expressions and gestures are the very same (licking his lips many times, lol),
Junho seemed to be the very Junsu, my heart was beating..
Watching Junho, I was wistful again…

Junho! He was doing his best for his singing and dancing. I hear that his dream is to become an actor, so please show your face often by this debut. And, in the future, please become a lovely artist. If it is Junsu’s wish, I really want the wish to be achieved!

Junsu! I’m waiting for you~~ I believe that the day we can meet many times are close at hand…..

[TRANS] 100419 Junsu In Magazine Harper’s BAZAAR


Junsu-san☆Additional Info

2010-04-18 (Sun) 07:49

Since I posted an article concerning Junsu-san of Tohoshinki,
there were many access and comments from the fans.
I cannot reply to each of them, so I want to express my gratitude here.
Everyone, thank you very much for your kind comments.

In exchange, I have heard the backstage stories of the photo session from the person in charge, who was the actual reporter that day.

Junsu-san appeared that date in simple style; jeans, T shirt, and jacket.
He seems to be a very courteous person.
When he was asked about the type of girl he prefers, he answered,
“For an example, when a girl drops something and picks it up, she takes care not to show her front, or, when she hands something to another person, she also gives out her other hand. I like girls with those thoughtfulness.”

What was his drink during the photo session? It was water.
The photographer was Miyuki Matsuda (she was the wife of the late actor Yusaku Matsuda, and the mother of the actor brothers Ryuhei & Shota Matsuda.)
The went along smoothly with each other.
The photo session was full of excitement.

After the photo session, the staffs were given out the album. (T/N: she does not state the name of the album)
There was a handwritten “Thank you” message in Japanese, and there was his signature, too.
Wonderful.
I am going to hear his vocals, too.

Junsu-san is supported by all the passionate fans’ feelings.
For me, the interest for him has increased deeply.

Be Fabulous!

[TRANS] 100419 Junsu’s First Words After Hiatus – “We’ll Meet Again”


On the 18th, Tohoshinki’s Junsu (23) appeared as a guest at his twin brother Zuno’s showcase live at the Tokyo JCB Hall. In his first public stage since the NHK Kouhaku Uta Gassen at the end of last year, he sent a message to the fans, “The time has come for us to meet soon, so please wait a little longer.” As the suspension of their activities was announced on the 3rd, this is the first time information about their activities was mentioned by any of the members.

On the 14th, Junsu formed a new unit with Jejung and Yoochun. In June, they will hold Lives at Kyocera Dome, Osaka, and at the Tokyo Dome.

His brother Zuno have begun activities as a singer in China and more recently in Japan. In a press conference that he attended alone before his concert, Zuno cheered his brother on, “I’m not worried. I want to give him my support and I think he will be successful.”

Junsu also gave his brother advise, “When you’re standing on the stage, think of yourself as the best. That’s important for an artist.”

[TRANS] 100418 Disbandment Rumours Unclear: TVXQ’s Path Has Been Tough


Since the 2004 official debut of TVXQ, through seven years of hard work, they finally stand at the peak of Asian music. But just right when they have countless fans’ support, rumours arise of disbandment and contract problems. Today Haibao Net will bring everyone and look back at TVXQ’s growth from their debut. No matter if TVXQ disbands or stays together, Cassiopeia who has believed faithfully in them would not let them go.

Three members of TVXQ, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu have sued SME near the end of 2009 for a suspension of their exclusive contract, leading to a pause in TVXQ’s activities in Korea. Months later, on the 3rd of April, a message on their Japanese homepage wrote “from today onwards, Tohoshinki will be on hiatus”.

This piece of information basically reports TVXQ’s disbandment, and this is something that neither Korean or other fans want to see, but the three and SME have something in between them that can’t be ignored, and with SME holding the rights for the band name, for ‘TVXQ’ to restart could practically be zero.

After that notice, everyone was alert on what the five would do. On the 14th of April, Avex announced that TVXQ’s three members, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu made a new contract with them, and would form a new unit to begin activities in Japan. Jaejoong has also participated in the 2010 Spring drama “Sunao ni Narenakute”, acting along with Eita and Ueno Juri.

From 1999 till 2003, they together had prepared for five years for the debut of TVXQ. In 2004, TVXQ’s single “Hug” acted as their official debut, and within a short span of time, they used their unique charms and SME’s huge backup to make TVXQ into Asia’s top idol boyband. TVXQ was brought up by SME who had also produced popular groups like H.O.T and S.E.S, and using that knowledge, they trained up a top boyband, and took up the praise of “perfect idols”.

In 2005, TVXQ debuted in Japan with the single “Stay With Me Tonight”, and till now they have released a total of 30 singles and 4 albums. Under present market conditions, up till the end of March, TVXQ’s gross total of record sales surpasses 5,130,000. At the same time these figures made are the best for a foreign artist in Japan.

[TRANS] 041110 Junho’s Interview in Hanryu Pia (Junsu Cut)


*only Junsu parts are posted here.

Q: You’re the sort of person who gets excited to full-throttle when people praise you.

Z:I’m blood type B (laugh). My brother is also B and he’s a typical B (laugh). When we were kids, we went to Lotte World, and one of the staff announced < Anyone wearing red clothes, please come up on the stage!> JunSoo and I were wearing pink clothes, but JunSoo immediately went up onto the stage…I thought < My clothes are not red…> so that I didn’t go up…that sort of differences you can see (in B type behaviour there).

Q: So what has JunSoo, such a strong B type man, advised his brother to do?

Z: When I have an filmed interview, I get nervous so I sometimes speak too fast or say things which don’t make sense.  <In that situation, do some deep breathing and speak clearly.> He also told me how to look after my throat the day before my recording. Before I did my first show, I was really nervous because I was going to sing in front of 30,000 people. I didn’t know what to do in my first rehearsal, and I felt upset and even thought about going home. So I phoned my brother, and he said some really nice things, “You must think you are the best. While you’re singing, don’t think about how to sing better, just think about how happy you are that such a lot of people have come to see you. That will make you perform much better than you expected. ”

In fact, I repeated his words like a “spell” and the tension went. Say my usual level is 100. In rehearsal I could only perform at about 20, but in the actual performance I could do more than 100. JunSoo was so proud of me, and said “You are great!” (laugh).

I really appreciated that and said “Thanks a lot. I’m so grateful for all your help”. I’d been joking with him that I wouldn’t need his advice, but on stage I actually had to take action, I realised how he is very important to me (laugh). I might be a bad person, don’t you think?…because I rely on him only when I need him.

Q: According to ZUNO’s manager, on the day they were shoting the PV, JunSoo arrived around dawn with fried-chicken for him and for all his staff.

Z: On that day JunSoo was performing his musical so I didn’t tell him about the date of the PV shoot. But when we were speaking to each other (on the phone), I joked “you won’t even come and cheer your brother up when he’s shooting”. He replied “I’m sorry 형(my brother), but it’s quite a long way from here….”, but in the end he came to see me. I knew he must’ve been exhausted, so I really appreciate his visit.

Q: Even though they are twins and have grown up in the same environment, their personalities are very individual.

Z: My brother is more manly, not chatty and he looks after things in a nice way in the background. I express affection straight. JunSoo is decisive, but I worry about this and that. When I worry about things, JunSoo makes a decision like “why don’t we do this!”.

In our childhood we were very similar, I think, but only just recently I’ve started to understand the differences between us. Since we were kids our body shape has always been different, so I sometimes felt frustrated when I was told “You’ve been eating your brother’s (food)” (laugh). I think twins like us are very unique (having such differences). When we see our relatives, they see grown-up JunSoo, and then say “you’ve caught up with your brother!”, but then look at me “(we thought) impossible…”.

Q: Since they were kids, they’ve always enjoyed being together, and ZUNO is looking forward to travelling in Japan with his brother, just the two of them.

Z: We were always happy playing together, so we never went to visit our friends, they visited us instead… like… “Hey, Twins! Play with us!”. I’ve never had a fight with JunSoo, only hitting each other for a joke (laugh). I’ve been to Japan twice when my brother started working there. I just watched my brother’s concerts and didn’t do much sight-seeing. But I know that Japanese people are kind and the cities are clean, and also I know that people queue up in front of restaurants serving the best food…(laugh). I love Sushi very much!!, and meat. I love anything with meat (laugh)
