[TRANS] 100519 Idol Group’s Survival Skills Evolve “We Even Compose And Write Lyrics”


Idol groups seem to be evolving every day. Some of them are honing their talents in the composition and lyrics fields. They are showing off their ‘musician’ sides by including their compositions in their albums.

The representative of these new composing idols is the group TVXQ. All the members of the group are capable of composing and writing lyrics.
They have released around 20 self-composed songs in Korea and Japan. It is said that they have around 100 unreleased songs that they composed and wrote lyrics for.

Xiah Junsu’s solo single <Intoxication>, which is going to be released on the 26th, is also his own composition.

(omitted)

A celebrity representative stated, “The idol group members’ active participation when it comes to composing and writing lyrics is connected to their futures. Their actions can be interpreted as an acceptance of the fact that their group activities will not last forever and a fight for survival and self-sufficiency in the future.”

[TRANS] 100508 PATi PATi Magazine – Interviewer’s Blog + Intoxication Interview



XIAH Junsu
Junsu has kicked off his solo appearance activities! A shoot and interview different from before, catching people’s attention!

Interviewer’s Blog

We have interviewed “XIAH”, Junsu’s name as a soloist, who has started his individual activities. The outcome of his photos clearly highlights his manly charisma and sex appeal, bringing forth a style completely different from before. As an editor as well, for me, it can be categorized as a batch of mind-numbing photos!

His interview is also greatly focused on. I felt abnormally nervous interviewing Junsu for the first time… But, after knowing him, his usual healthy laugh came out.
I can sense that a great amount of what he said was directed towards his fans. Personally, Junsu’s masculine image must be acknowledged!

Although it wasn’t an interview for all 5 of them and it felt a little lonely, because it was a one-on-one, the interview could go more deeply.
As music critics would say, continuing on and persevering through with your music is a meaningful existence as an entertainer.
If Junsu’s sincere attitude about “I want to sing” carries through, this magazine will surely support him to the end!

————————————————————–

(Below is the real interview)

It is a different feeling from before (laugh)

—— How does it feel to be a solo artist, “XIAH Junsu”?
Both nervous and expectant (laughs). But all in all, I have to do my best! This type of feeling is the strongest. Also, releasing a new single and starting my favorite singing activities makes me the most happy.

—— Up until now, you’ve always had the gentle, yet cold and mysterious impression…
Mysterious?! What happened there? I’m a little embarrassed now (laughs).

—— A feeling of an extremely distant person (laugh). But this time, “Intoxication” is glamorous and sexy, and “Kanashimi No Yukue” is a silent sorrow, full of manliness. So is Junsu’s image suddenly changed again?
“Intoxication” was composed by myself. As a solo, I would rather lean towards singing styles I preferred before, like African-American R&B music. The lyrics were written under the influence of the world’s view, as suggested by the lyricist (embarrassed). It is a rather sexy route (laughs).

—— I am overawed by the adult atmosphere! Female fans must also be heavily enticed.
The feeling is different from the previous Junsu right? (laughs). The dancing is also very suited to the atmosphere of the song, so I hope everyone can quickly see it. When I dance, I already imagine myself performing it live onstage. Perhaps I’ve completed a dance with a lot of masculinity. Maybe this can be said as mysterious? (laughs). It is my proud creation! I’ve finished a great piece of work.

—— It’s been so long since we’ve seen you, and you have a lot of masculinity indeed. You’re qualities have changed right?
Really? I’ve always been like this…

—— No, just like this (laugh).
Are you joking? (laughs).

—— I’m kidding (laugh). You’ve changed to become a mature man! This feeling has been clearly expressed.
When you say it like that, I’m very happy. You mean I’ve grown a lot right?

—— What is the type of “masculinity” that you think about?
(Immediately answers) I think it should be “caring”. The biggest difference between males and females is males’ point of view on caring. If they can’t do it, then they are unworthy of being a man. Most people will probably think that masculinity equals power and strength, but I don’t believe so. A real man’s strength lies in his ability to be concerned over people.

—— It doesn’t matter whether it’s to either men or women right?
Yes. Regardless of gender, and if a man can do it to anyone, I think they are the best type of people.

—— Since when did you start thinking like this?
I’ve always believed this before, but I deeply experienced this 2-3 years ago. Seeing the people around me caring for others, I’ll always think “this is a real man!” I think the valiance the eyes see cannot be the standard for what real masculinity is. Compared to this, what’s most important is a heart of compassion. This is a huge factor that contributes to my becoming of an ideal man.

—— So this could be considered an internal strength?
Yes. Because you’re strong on the inside, you can care for others. If you can’t even take care of yourself, how could you have the strength to take care of others?

—— Exactly! So in order for you to preserve your force, how do you maintain your frame of mind?
Normally, when I’m sad or exhausted, I have to remain optimistic. If I’m happy, joyful things are multiplied 2 or 3 times. In contrast, I bury the negative feelings in my heart, not letting anyone feel it… Sometimes there will be incidents where I completely burst. “Wu-ahh~!”, that’s how I relieve the stress (laughs). However, on the outside it may look pretty simple, but it is actually difficult. I hope that I can handle it better in the future.

—— Speaking of sad things, the song “Kanashimi No Yukue” expressed deep helplessness. What were you thinking when singing this?
I was feeling the melody and lyrics, and used really honest feelings to sing this. I don’t chase after unreasonable power. For men, “power” is a very normal impression, doesn’t everyone think this? However, I feel that love is neither power nor weakness. This song contains a weak side, but also the frank side of men. Men like to act cool, but truthfully we are also have weak moments right?… I don’t usually show my weak side, but I can when I sing, which makes me more honest to myself.

—— Weakness?
Sometimes, there will be times when I do show my weak side. This is also a part of the “man” I want to be. Although power and weakness are totally opposite each other, in actuality, they are a part of each other.

—— Since you think this way, your shadow can be felt in this single.
Yes. That’s why “XIAH” was chosen as the name. It is my stage name, so I just made it to be the name of this single. Now that I’ve started my solo activities, I will express my feelings more openly to everyone in terms of music. I feel that’s the most important, so I won’t be able to lie about it.

—— Music makes you more straightforward right?
Yeah, you can say it’s the only thing that can (laughs).

—— After listening to XIAH Junsu’s music, I feel I am more close to you.
If the people that listen to my music and feel that, I will very happy. From now on, I will use XIAH Junsu to perform, to talk, to do things that I may not know now. But what I do know is that standing on the stage and singing, is the real me. If I can convey that feeling to everyone, I will be truly happy
