CD&DL: Xiah Junsu solo promotion is now begun, so, can you please tell us your feelings?
JS: A bit nervous, tension/stress, happy. My feelings are kinda complex/complicated/mixed.
CD&DL: You feel stress also?
JS: Yes. I’m thinking “am I able to present a perfect stage to the others?”
CD&DL: Then, what is your solo theme/title?
JS: Although my single theme/title is XIAH, and also my nick name at South Korea. Either as artist or music, it is based on my own willing to name it as XIAH. If talking about the theme, I think it is because of this. (His own wish)
CD&DL: In XIAH, we can feel “Junsu” character in there. Compared to the other side, this is very high quality.
JS: Ah, what is that means?
CD&DL: (laugh) I just think that was a great song.
JS: Ah… So lucky, if the CD is distribute/sell, will you listen/buy it?
CD&DL: I will (laugh), and I will promote it to others…
JS: you must do it…
CD& DL: I will (laugh). Intoxication was made by your own; therefore what is the image/figure of this song?
JS: Basically, I’m thinking of “singing… while performing dance…” and… produced. The localization is R& The B dance music, simultaneously, sees in them obtains balanced.
CD&DL: Your focused music is R&B?
JS: Yes. Likes the black being spiritual music, R&B, although up until now, I’ve sing a lot of J-POP, and intense dance music. But for my single, I wanted to try/do R&B music, because I want to do the best for my solo, so I think this is the best music.
CD&DL: Actually, what do you feel during recording?
JS: Feels different. While in combination of sound recording, have thought to be balanced, otherwise, sings lives oneself before the partial song atmosphere, or is to repeat the voice of the members. While solo, need to reflect the self dynamic sentiment/feeling, this is important. Though, both aspects are difficult, music is difficult.
CD&DL: Mixed lyrics, that is English and Japanese also makes people impressed. What is the meaning/significance?
JS: Puts in English lyrics in the whole, enables it to have the Western music flavor, and singing in English is also a private singing.
CD&DL: Is there also based on your own idea?
JS: Of course, and also helped by many people, it is a smooth production. And I feel so happy because I’ve learned so many things.
CD&DL: Intoxication contains “中毒 (poisoning)” & “专心(wholly-absorbed)” meanings, do you have this kind of feelings too?
JS: Although it is not “poisoning” (laugh), recently I’m addicted to composed song. I also receives company’s staff request.
CD&DL: Is it sounds like: “Help me compose/make a song”?
JS: Some are like this, certainly I feel so satisfied and very happy.
CD&DL: Do you use piano to compose song?
JS: Yes, but because dance music needs the rhythms, so I use MAC to make it. By using that kind of equipments, in 5 minutes, I could finish/complete the song.
CD&DL: Ah, meaning?
JS: To know “Today, no matter how I try, it won’t work at all.” this kind of feeling. But, while working on it, it is about 12 hours to complete it, thinking of wanted to sleep, and also my waist is began hurts, hips are sore.
CD&DL: And, when you realize, it’s already morning?
JS: Yes (laugh), the time blinked passed, I thought that one hour is only a minute. When I look at the mirror, my eyes are pan-red (laugh), and I also forgot to eat.
CD&DL: This is poisoning…
JS: Yes (laugh), feels poisoned…
CD&DL: “Drunk” is also one of the themes, Junsu, do you drink?
JS: I can’t drink, also I do not drink. I think liquor does not tastily good to body. Whether staff or band member, many people suffer at the second day.
CD&DL: Hangover… (Suffer of drunken pain)
JS: I thought that “It was suffering, why do they want to drink?” (Smiles). However, likes the atmosphere. Though I didn’t drink, but because of that atmosphere I also will be drunk. The eyes of drunken people is changes gradually small, I will also turn such.
CD&DL: (laugh) in this CD, “Kanashimi no Yukue” is also included, this is also a very good song. Junsu’s voice is very suitable for this song.
JS: Thank you. The dance music has the dance music strong point; the lyric (feeling/emotion) song has the lyric (feeling/emotion) song strong point. They are different, dance music can’t neglect the rhythm, and lyrics (feeling/emotion) song must put in the sentiment. While in R& B, it owns these two aspects. Therefore I like R&B.
CD&DL: “Kanashimi no Yukue” has highlighted a man weakness, is there any part that you really like?
JS: There is… “For me, happiness changing is lonelier than happiness coming to an end”
CD&DL: Is it because you have the same feeling bout it?
JS: Yes, I have this kind of feeling. This is only my own thought, its depend to the listener of this song, I wish to grasp the meaning, it also have several method/way. While “the end”, the reasons are too many. For example some side has died perhaps has gone to the distant place. There no solution for this problem, right?
JS: But, when it is about heart/feeling changing is different. In this situation, there is no choice to admit, because there is indeed of feeling lonely, in that case, “the end” can’t be say as a good decision.
CD&DL: Ermm… It is very deep…
JS: Yes, the meaning of this song was so deep…
CD&DL: The intense convey emotions’ part is also smart.
JS: Honestly, I sing the song very diligently, I mentioned about this is not for artificial; I only want to sing it with my full heart. For example, the sound trembling, it possibly has the strange part in the musical aspect, but for me, the trembling voice can or cannot convey the emotions.
CD&DL: Compare to the other, for you emotion of the song is your priority right?
JS: Yes, would like to make song by using orchestral music also possible. Only used the piano and the modern musical instrument, but can’t be added to the rhythm.
CD&DL: Is it your music was reflects of yourself, just like your single?
JS: If I was happy, I can express all my thought and my happiness. This was a great pleasure, and also wanted to thanks the staffs.
CD&DL: You are so modest. (smiles)
JS: No, this is the truth. Because I’m so happy… Very happy. As XIAH Junsu, I really want to express musicality.
CD&DL: The uncle jokes sealed?
JS: No… If I can talk about it I will talk… (smiles) But, at this time, “really want to perform on the stage” feeling. I didn’t stand/perform on the stage recently, hope to see everyone soon.
CD&DL: Looking forward too. What is your future plan?
JS: Like I said before, whether I am solo or as a group, I only want to sing. Really want to let everybody think “he love to sing deeply”. I want to become such singer.
