[TRANS] 111105 JYJ KIM JUNSU : “I’M SURPRISED AND THANKFUL THAT MANY FANS IN BERLIN KNOW US”



JYJ member Kim Junsu expressed his feelings about holding solo concerts in Europe.

On the afternoon of the 5th of November, a day before JYJ’s concert in Berlin, Germany, Kim Junsu spoke to YTN TV’s “Newswide” via a live telephone broadcast and said, “Because we’ve already performed once in Barcelona, the nervousness and excitement we felt then has carried through (to our Berlin concert).”

When asked if he “felt any hints of JYJ’s popularity in the country,” Kim Junsu replied, “Although I wasn’t able to go sightseeing a lot, I did manage to walk around a little. I was very surprised and thankful to see our posters up around the city and to have more people recognize me than I’d expected. This makes us want to work harder and present an even better side of ourselves to everyone.”

He also added, “The reaction we received in Spain was as passionate as the country itself. I believe it was more of ‘those fans drawing forth a greater strength from us than we thought we had ‘ than a product of us working really hard.“

JYJ, who completed their solo concert in Barcelona’s Palau Sant Jordi on the 29th of October, will be holding their next concert in Berlin’s Tempodrom on the 6th of November.

[NEWS] JYJ’S SPAIN PROMOTER CONFIRMS 3000 ATTENDED THE MEANINGFUL BARCELONA CONCERT


JYJ Concert in Spain. A Brave Beginning, More Important Than Its Scale

With the perspectives splitting, there is rising controversy about the Spain Concert from Group JYJ (Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu).

On the 29th of last month, group JYJ held JYJ Europe Tour Concert 2011 in Barcelona, Spain while 3000 fans gathered. They held the concert in Poble Espanyol of Barcelona, Spain, and this was the first for a Korean artist.

After the concert, a few are raising doubt as to the objective facts on the number of the members of the audience gathered on the scene, the number of fans of the area, and the publishing of the event by foreign press.

On this day, the concert was crowded from early on due to the fans who gathered—not merely Asian fans from Korea, China, Japan and such but also from all over Europe. There were even some fans of the region who showed enthusiasm enough to make them put up a tent to stay up overnight in foul weather in order to take a position that is close to the stage.

The most eye-catching thing about this concert was the fact that not merely fans of Asia but also a number of foreign fans from Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, and such filled the seats. They shouted the names of the members in precise Korean pronunciation and sang along to the songs.

According to Open Music Jordi, the promoter (of JYJ) in Spain, as the result of counting after the audience entered the venue, it has become confirmed that 3000 persons visited the venue as a member of the audience.

Poble Espanyol is a plaza-style venue and it was filled by the 3000 fans who entered it in order. When the concert began and JYJ appeared on the stage, the fans gathered in front of the stage and waved the red glowsticks.

Even after the concert was over, they shouted “I love you, JYJ” and were not able to leave the scene easily.

When compared to the world tours in other locations such as Korea, Japan, Thailand and such, the concert in Spain which was the first of the European Tour [destinations] of JYJ was relatively small in scale.

But JYJ showed a brave mindset of beginning again by holding a solo concert for the first time as Korean artists in Europe. Also, even though this was small scale, they relayed the appeal of K-pop to the fans of Europe and had a meaningful time of informing them of JYJ’s existence.

In the press conference held prior to the concert, JYJ revealed their heart: “We think it is only natural that the first concert is small in scale. We put meaning to the fact that we are doing a tour in Europe and we want to fulfill [milestones] one by one from small places, with the mindset of beginning again from the start line.” As they said, JYJ have made the first meaningful step towards expanding into Europe.

[TRANS] HIGH CUT MAGAZINE VOL. 64 – PARK YOOCHUN‏


 

By the time High Cut Vol. 64 is released, it should be about the time where Park Yoochun has concluded his Spain concert and probably on his way to Germany. The concert in Germany is on the 6th November at Berlin’s Tempodrom. A twenty minutes walk from this circus tent-alike grand arena would lead to you to Potsdamer Platz and after that you would see the historical Berlin Wall. This year marks the 50th anniversary commemoration of the erection of the Berlin Wall by East and West Germany. The Berlin Wall was built in 1961 and yet has fallen for 28 years. The separation of the five members of TVXQ into trio and duo has been two years. The mental barrier that was built in between them would probably needs time to ‘demolish’. Just like what Park Yoochun said in the end, “Time will resolved everything”.

 

 

“Feels that ‘there are a lot more yet to be done’.”

A year ago when the US tour ended, there was such a thought. During the concerts in US, Park Yoochun substantially understood the importance of the stage and the necessity of songs. A year after the US concerts in 2010, JYJ held their Europe tour.

He said, “It is our first time in Europe for concerts and although we are not confident of it, it is not due to the audience. It is as though we have once again realized the importance of the stage.” In this one year, he made people felt that he has become stronger and more humble.

Prior to the meeting with Yoochun, he gave me an impression as such: adorable appearance, somewhat sensitive, the prince who lives by eating salad. But it was the complete opposite.

He was not picky at all. He ate snacks like tteokbokki (stir fried rice cake) and fried items, happily. A rather easy-going guy.

There was no display of “I am a Top Star” attitude, but the gentleman who would carefully take care of the staffs.

Even Park Yoochun’s muscles has its uniqueness and cannot be found in other artistes. The tough muscles trained through exercise (not in common indoor gym, but through the enjoyment of outdoor sports), though they are not left-right balanced and perfectly sculptured, it diffuses the natural vitality and healthy allure.

The minute he revealed his shoulders, the female staffs could not take their eyes away from such level of enticing built.

Compared to his days as an idol, he is now more in his relaxed state and slight increase of that maturity. We hope to portray such a man, Park Yoochun, in the photo shoot.

Since we talked about the yacht during the photo shoot (heard that you recently bought a yacht!!!), let’s talk about it.

As we have done filming on a yacht many times in overseas, thus I had the intention to buy a yacht and my dream came true. After JYJ’s Europe tour ended, I would like to go on a yachting trip to the southern part.

Wow, how does it feels like to be a yacht owner?

Hmm, at first it feels good that ‘it’s interesting to be on a yacht.’ Now, it feels that even if nothing was done (on the yacht), it’s good enough to be out in the sea and feel the comfortable relaxation.

We heard that you spent the two months after filming “Miss Ripley”, fishing in Busan. From a ‘naturalist’ Park Yoochun and back to Seoul, isn’t it regrettable?

Seoul’s air is really terrible. The weather in sea will be delayed by two months as compared to land’s weather, ain’t it. The wind and water temperature will be warm in December. It is still warm right now in daytime, thus it is great. Ah…. I’m missing it!

 

Let’s slowly get into the topic of actor Park Yoochun. Observing the works that you have done recently, the love relation scenes with the actresses seems to be especially savoring.

The actresses that I collaborated with were experienced actresses. During such scenes, seniors would advised me and it helped me a lot. During many intimate scenes, as it was done in overnight filming, I thought, “Since it has to be done, then do it well!”

In order to portray such realistic feelings, it definitely has to be related with your real-life love experiences right?

Ay, I don’t have such love experience as in “Miss Ripley”, there was no situation where I was being lied by a woman. However when portraying as Song Yuhyun, he has many traits that I envied. After I broke up with my ex-girlfriend of 4 years, I did not have that kind of experience again whereby I poured my heart out for someone and only had her in my eyes. Due to my in-depth feelings involvement during acting, I developed the desire to quickly find such a woman who I would give my all to.

The ‘ex-girlfriend’ you mentioned is not Seolinja right? (The snowgirl that Park Yoochun revealed in Twitter.)

Puahaha! I really didn’t know she is such famous. On the night of KBS Drama Award where I received the newcomer award, I went to a resort, built a snowman and then posted the photo. But because she became so famous, it saddened me and we broke up after that.

Comparing “Miss Ripley” and your debut work “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, there must be some regrettable areas.

I felt regrettable with regards to acting. The more one acts, the more one felt the flaws but there was no way to stop it. That was regrettable. The mind was thinking, “This line has to be portray as such” and had already practiced the grasp of the emotions, but it still cannot be easily presented during the actual performance. No matter what, acting has to be naturally displayed and it is very difficult. Acting, that is.

About your next project, is there any plans for it?

I read a lot of works and some of the scripts have the 1st two episodes completed. I would like to read more, up to the third and/or fourth episode thus I’m still anticipating. To me, I would like to try my hands on movie too but it’s still unclear now. In the past, I thought of portraying a psychological-challenged killer, but not the kind mafia character who lived in a mafia gang. It’s the kind of character with a reversal role. I think that it is a need to expand my acting genre from a refined gentleman character.

Your younger brother Park Yoohwan has debuted as an actor too, what was your advice to him?

Actually, it has been more difficult to meet my brother than the members. (laughs) From my view, the aspect where I highly rated my brother is his total self-management. Managing from his own skincare, exercise, nutrition etc, he does not need anyone else to remind him especially and he did everything well. This gave my mum and me a big shock.
The things that he would definitely not do usually, he did it all and very well after he started working.
I’m irritated by this! Because I wasn’t even like this.

Could it be that after he observed his brother and thought that, “I shouldn’t be like this”?

Puahaha! This is 100% possible! Compared to me, Yoohwan faced a lot of difficulties as he was younger, thus he was pretty psychologically traumatized. After his debut, he met a lot of people and unknowingly became brighter.
In the past, we would not go for a drink, but recently Yoohwan would initiate to call me and asked, “Hyung, shall we go for a drink?” This really puts me in a good mood.
I have told him that after he finished the filming of SBS “Thousand Day’s Promises”, we would go out to play, and this is a promise I have to keep.

Unknowingly you have debuted for 7 years, what is the biggest achievement you had gained?

Hm……. If I were to say it truthfully, though I was not able to describe it perfectly, it would be that there are more laughters in the house now. (My mother) need not have to worry about living expenses and was able to buy what she wants and do what she wants. This is more than enough.
This is not just the fulfillment of responsibility but the ability to support family, friends, surrounding people and to move forward to a better direction in the future.

This question needs to be asked with reservations, you debuted with five members… is there a possibility to resolve this contradiction for each other in the future?

This is unlike a fight in school due to disagreement where the misunderstanding can be easily resolved after that. There are more than the current one or two matters to consider. To do such for the sake of our matters, would it be 100% resolved? There are too many things to consider and many things that needs to be done. This is not the time where someone with a bigger courage stepping out will be able to settle this matter. I think that other than time, there might be no other way to resolve it. I have always been thinking like that too. I did imagined about contacting each other, going out and drink a cup of soju as per before. No matter what the outcome is, probably it would only be resolved as time goes by. As I set my thinking like this, my uneasiness reduced.

1. Park Yoochun who is standing in front of the camera, with his tough shoulder outline and muscles, emitting his male beauty.

 

2. Inspecting the images with his penetrating expressions, Park Yoochun sincerely checked on the results.

 

3. Park Yoochun exchanged suggestions with the staffs while filming and worked hard to present an even better photoshoot effect. Even upon facing awkward requests, he did not forget to smile and made the filming location’s atmosphere rather comfortable and enjoyable.

[NEWS] 111102 “IT WAS BECAUSE OF JYJ’S VIGOROUS DANCE MOVES… WE’RE SORRY”, ORGANIZER APOLOGIZED


‘JYJ European Tour in Barcelona’, even the professional photography team became puzzled by [JYJ’s] energetic moves. ”We’re sorry. There is no photo.”

On the 29th (local time), after the ‘JYJ European Tour in Barcelona’ has ended, the organizer unusually apologized to the reporters because there were very few photos of all the members Kim Junsu, Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun. Except for the two photos of them singing a ballad, there was actually no photo of them dancing.

The organizer said, “The dance moves of the members were more intense than ever. We have tried hard but we couldn’t get a single shot. Even the professional photography team that has accompanied them in the North American Tour was abashed.”

What was so different this time that they couldn’t capture photos of the members? The members have expressed determined willingness to hold this concert. Since it was decided that it would be a relatively small concert (3,000 people), they said, as if it was a habit, “We’re going to get back to the basics.” Just like those words, on the stage, they didn’t think about their own, and just jumped and danced.

“It’s true that the stage is small, but it has a different meaning. In Korea or in Japan, we have also started from small things and with that basis, the love of our fans has grown. I think the first concert in Europe is also a good beginning. Rather than a bombastic concert in Europe, we want to set foot on a small stage first, with a heart that wants to start again from the beginning.” Those are Kim Jaejoong’s words.

The stage that we saw with our own eyes was far from glamorous. Protruding or pumping stage, even LED screen couldn’t be expected. Fireworks on stage has also disappeared. Sometimes,the effect of CO2 sprang, but that was all. Only the light that was shining on the old castle from afar added as flavor.

But it was not unsuccessful. Fans that joined them there also differed from any other shows. With the shout of 100 warriors, they provided support to JYJ’s new start. JYJ really had such a vibrant concert that the professional photography team couldn’t properly capture with their camera. A French student who watched the show that day said, “I think this is the first time I see the members try so hard to sing and dance like that. Regardless of stage scale, fans were greatly impressed.”
