[TRANS] 2010’S MOST CREATIVE PERFORMING ARTIST, KIM JUNSU


Kim Junsu, Singer and Musical Actor

The first surprise was during the first performance of the musical “Mozart!” in January. When the selling started, the sold-out tickets for the performances showed the ticketing power of “Xiah Junsu.” That was the first shocking event. The second surprise was the recognition based on his abilities that Kim Junsu got from people who were initially prejudiced against idols advancing into musicals.

Though it was “celebrity idol” Xiah Junsu who showed powerful ticketing power, it was the “rising musical star” Kim Junsu who melted the hearts of the audience. He received recognition from the 4th Musical Awards, as well as the Newcomer’s Award and Popularity Award in the 16th Korean Musical Daesang.

A four-day “Kim Junsu Musical Concert – Levay With Friends” concert was held by the proposal of composer Sylvester Levay. Though Kim Junsu has appeared on concert stages numerous times as a singer, performing onstage for the first time as a musical actor is a very new and exciting experience for him as a musical gives him more opportunities to be exposed to more diverse genres of music.

Despite being involved in all the controversy surrounding TVXQ in 2010, Kim Junsu still has a lot of things to be thankful for and happy about. After experiencing the satisfaction of performing onstage in a musical, there is a high possibility of him returning as musical actor “Kim Junsu” in the future.

[Trans] 100903 Musical Composer Lee Gihieh Defends Kim Junsu In Tweet



I feel as though there are a lot of musical fans who are disappointed by the …
I can understand why they feel that way, but as someone who didn’t know a single TVXQ song before and had tears streaming down my face during his Mozart performance, I support him.
I was really moved by his sincerity and charisma.

Replies to tweets sent by others

Setting aside Kim Junsu’s talent, maybe it’s because they put his name on the title of the concert like it’s his solo concert even though he’s not the only one participating?

“That… is EMK’s marketing strategies… I’m just saying that I support Kim Junsu.. hehe”

I think the biggest reason why musical fans are disappointed is because of EMK’s marketing. hehe”

“Yes, that’s why I can understand why they feel that way. Honestly, wouldn’t I even feel a little annoyed? ^^ But I still like Kim Junsu. hehehe”

I can’t understand why they’re so sensitive about it.. They make it sound like the other musical actors are going to be pushed to the back. I feel as though people wouldn’t be saying such things if Junsu wasn’t playing the lead role;;;

“I probably won’t be going… but I still like Junsu and I want to support him. hehe And no matter how much money you give to musical actors, they wouldn’t participate if they didn’t want to. It’s not like anyone is forcing them to perform. I think if people are fans of musicals, then they should respect an actor’s decision…”

Thank you T_T Who’s disappointed in the concert~ Watch him perform and then try complaining… huh??

“Ah ^^; You must be a fan of Kim Junsu. There are a lot of top musical actors who praise Junsu… After watching Mozart, I started searching for TVXQ songs hehe I didn’t know much about them before because I don’t watch that much TV. I think that he’s someone who is very talented at delivering emotions in his songs!

The first performance of the ‘Kim Junsu Musical Concert -Levay With Friends’ was completely sold out in 20 minutes and once again showed off the ticket of power of Kim Junsu (Xiah Junsu).

According to EMK Musical, “When the tickets were released on reservation site Interpark at 9pm on the 1st, all the floor seats were sold out in 90 seconds and then all the rest of the seats were sold out in 20 minutes.” It was said later that the large influx of fans also caused the server to crash, which caused great confusion.

This concert, which began when Mozart!’s composer Sylvester Levay gave Kim Junsu a love call, is said to be a high quality performance with the composer himself participating actively by conducting the orchestra and playing the piano.

EMK Musical said, “As there aren’t many opportunities to hold a musical concert at the Sports Stadium, the biggest concert arena in Korea, we will create a performance that will appeal to the masses and introduce those who are unfamiliar with musicals to the genre.”

Many have their attention focused on Kim Junsu, who has been praised for his possibilities as a musical actor, and he will be joined by top musical actors such as Shin Young Suk, Bae Hae Sun, Park Eun Tae and Jung Seon Ah.

[NEWS] Netizens Select the Idols Who Best Resemble Comic Book Characters


A website recently asked its visitors to name the idols whom they
believed look most like they had just walked out of a comic. The
results, while very varied and surprising, were definitely quite
interesting!
In 10th place was FT Island’s Lee Hongki. Maybe it was his long golden locks of hair and pretty-boy looks that did the trick?

Right before Lee Hongki came 2PM’s Ok Taecyeon. The beastly idol is
known not only for his masculine appearance but his OkCat drawings as
well, which have been able to make many a fan laugh in amusement.

Super Junior’s Cho Kyuhyun came in eighth place. I don’t know about
comic books, but I’m sure Kyuhyun would be more than happy to have a
video game character made from his looks!

Kim Hyungjoon of SS501 and Minho of SHINee were right ahead of Kyuhyun,
as they were given the titles for seventh and sixth place respectively.

Choi Siwon of Super Junior came in fifth place. The idol is known for
his ‘Shibrows,’ which often seem to have a personality of their own.

In fourth place was Big Bang’s GDragon, who is known for his sense of
style and outrageous hairdos. Although some might call his various
hairstyles examples of hairdon’ts, it looks like his unique sense of
fashion gave him quite a boost in this survey!

Kim Hyunjoong of SS501 received third place in this survey. Between
him and Lee Hongki, it looks like Asia really has a thing for Korean
pretty boys!

Continuing on with the pretty boy trend, Super Junior’s Kim Heechul
received second place. His eccentric personality and large, expressive
eyes were probably a few deciding factors which allowed him to receive
so many votes.

And for first place…can you guess who made it? It’s none other than TVXQ’s Kim Junsu!

Were these results accurate enough for you?

[TRANS] 100329 Kim Junho Debut Showcase In Beijing, Brother Junsu Came To Cheer Him On, Mentioned Recent Activities After Contract Dispute


Korean star Kim Junho had his debut showcase in Beijing on the 28th, starting off his Asian Tour. After half a year, he returns in front of his fans. Not only does Kim Junho complete his metamorphosis from a Prince of Love Songs to a Sexy Dancer, he also shows off the essential abdominal muscles Korean stars must have.

His twin brother, TVXQ’s member Kim Junsu, made a special appearance to cheer Junho on as well as to sing. Junsu also accepted a Sohu Entertainment exclusive interview, facing the media for the first time and mentioning recent activities after the “TVXQ Contract Dispute Issue.”

Kim Junho wants to work with S.H.E, joking how he’s more handsome than his brother

In contrast to other Korean stars developing in China, Kim Junho chose to directly debut in China using his stage name ZUNO, releasing the single . Was the reason why the Chinese entertainment company chose to sign Kim Junho due to the immense popularity of twin brother Kim Junsu? In response, the company’s manager denied the claim, stating humorously that “I fell in love with him, he’s handsome and sunny, and also very kind.” So who does Kim Junho think is more handsome, himself or his brother? He answered laughingly, “Of course in the eyes of the media, Junsu is more handsome. If in private, I think I’m a little bit more handsome than Junsu.”

Kim Junho revealed that the reason why he chose to debut in China was partly due to his brother, Kim Junsu’s, influence, and also because of the fact that debuting in China had very good developing opportunities. In terms of his level in Chinese, Kim Junho humbly expressed that “right now, lengthy sentences are still difficult. When recording Chinese songs, the hardest part is the pronunciation and tone. I’m still working hard in learning Chinese.”

Then amongst the Chinese singers, who does he want to work with the most? Kim Junho disclosed that he greatly admires Jay Chou, Alexander Wang, and Michael Wong. For the ladies, he really likes S.H.E.

Kim Junho dances and shows off his abs at fan meeting, making the fans his girlfriends

To start off the fan meeting, a video clip was shown of Kim Junho revealing half a year’s worth of hard work on his rock-hard muscles, causing fans to scream non-stop. Not only did Kim Junho receive results from half a year of effective fitness, he also changed his gentlemanly image, dancing sensually with a female dancer, causing several media reporters to applaud Korean singers as being “able to dance and sing”. According to staff members, Kim Junho usually rehearses until late at night, preparing the best that he can for his first fan meeting.

Kim Junho says that in the half year that he was in Korea, he really missed the Chinese fans, so he sang for them the ballad . When being asked if he had a girlfriend, he kept everyone in suspense by saying that he already had one, causing fans to sigh in despair. But later on, he added “it’s you”, touching fans deeply.

Kim Junsu sings English song displaying his natural gift, fans hold up “I Believe” signs

Last year July, Kim Junsu was one of the three members of TVXQ involved in the contract dispute. Having been inactive in China, his appearance caused a huge commotion among the fans. He sang Whitney Houston’s live on stage, and to show their greatest support for their idol until the end, the fans held up signs saying “I Believe” in Korean.

Kim Junsu not only drew in a huge number of fans to the event, he also attracted Chinese Idol Group HIT5 to the scene to observe and learn. They expressed that they were also Junsu’s fans. The scene of them watching their idol while signing autographs for their own fans made them seem very approachable and welcoming.
