Xia “The Chilean fans are very passionate”!


The musician, who has already visited Chile with the group JYJ, will present his solo artist proposal next 10th of September in Caupolican Theatre. “Korean pop is a music very energetic and sensual”, said the singer to LaNacion.cl

Junsu Xia, one of the greatest exponents of K-pop, has already been in Chile together with the group JYJ, in March of 2012. That time, he could perceive the craziness this tendency provokes in the previously known as local “calcetineras” (bobbysoxers) who spend the night at the airport, hotel and finally in the venue where the Oriental group presented themselves.

The singer is coming back to Chile to present his proposal as solo artist the 10th of September in Caupolican Theatre. From Korea, he makes time in his tight agenda to talk to Nación.cl about his music and his relationship with his national fans.

- You have already visited Chile once. Could you listen to Chilean music?
Yes, I have visited Chile and the city was so beautiful. It was as if city and nature were just one. Everyone was very friendly and the atmosphere in the show was one of the best in my life. I’m very happy as we are going back. Regarding Chilean music, the truth is I haven’t had too much time to appreciate it. However, when I was in Chile, every time I was on a car, I listened to the radio. That music is still on my memory. It was very rhythmical and the melodies were good. In my next visit I will try to enjoy more Chilean culture.

- What do you think about Chilean fans and their interest in Korean culture?
I’m very thankful to Chilean fans. Even although Korea is far away from their country, Chilean fans are among the most passionate about listening to my music and thinking about me. That’s very shocking and I feel very thankful. Moreover, I have a sense of responsibility because they see Korea’s image through me so I want to do it the best possible way.

- What stage of the creative process are you in? New lyrics, music? Is there some new project?
First of all, I’d like to finish the World Tour successfully. As I like challenges and I want to try new things, I will try to take this to the research of new lyrics and music.


- Thanks to social networking, Korean culture is more popular nowadays. What do you think are the differences between K-pop and other genres around the world?
It’s difficult to define K-pop in one word. As K-pop has become global thanks to Youtube, now there are many idols. I think fans all over the world love the intense performance and the sensual content and with style. If K-pop means Korean pop and not what I have just described, Koreans are people who love music. I think that is true in South Korean culture, in which people love meeting around music and dance. That’s why we have great musicians. The genres are very diverse; there’s not only dance music, but also hip hop, rock, R&B and traditional Korean music. Each time there are more and more musicians who create their own lyrics. But if you ask me which one is the secret of K-pop, my answer is “passion”. It’s a type of music very energetic and sensual.

- Have you thought of releasing some song and video in Spanish?
I really would like to. In fact, I have had serious conversations with the staff member in charge of the albums in Latin America. I don’t know when, but it’s something I want to do in the future. If I do so, I will have to take some time because I need to know the language and the culture in order to understand the lyrics and to sing the songs as I did with Japanese and English.

- Is there something you would like to do in Chile which you did not do in your previous visit?
If I have the chance, I’d like to go to the beach and to eat seafood with my staff, who worked very hard in Chile. And despite I cannot drink, I’d like to visit some winery.

Junsu Xia in Caupolican Theatre
Date: 10th of September, 9 pm.

Tickets sold through the system Feriaticket with the following prices: General: $ 16.000 (in advance) / $ 20.000; cancha: $ 35.000 (in advance) / $ 40.000; VIP: $ 60.000 (in advance) / $ 65.000.

World-class vocalist, XIA Junsu’s recommended music!


Hello, Cyworld members!
I am XIA, greeting everyone through my official solo album and English single.
Nice to meet you.

1. This time, TARANTALLEGRA is a song that you personallly composed and I was very surprised at its fairly high quality. Since when have you started composing songs? – Gwon Gooyoung
Firstly, the musical aspect of this song is also important but because I pictured out the visual aspect first then composed it, I worked on both composition and filming for the music video at the same time. Besides, the music video was released 1 day before the song itself so I have to work harder on the visual aspect like choreography and fashion etc to make the song even better.

I think I started composing when I was 20. I learnt about the basics of composition and naturally strengthened my skills as what I felt and learnt by myself along the way. At the moment, I still want to learn more about this and also compose more songs.

2. I am curious whether you got the inspirations from which circumstance while composing. From natural scene? Your everyday life? Or, did they just suddenly come to you? -@shiningspot
Everything around me, also everything that happened to me is my inspiration.
If a melody or a beat pops up in my head, I will run to the composing room right away to compose and keep them there. The title song of my solo album was inspired a lot by the role ‘Death’ in musical Elisabeth in terms of its mystical and androgynous vibe.


3. When did you have the idea of adding the sound of gong instrument into the Oriental version of TARANTALLEGRA? Also, is the high-pitched part at the end your ad-lib? -@wnstn4803
It is because TARANTALLEGRA is a song where orchestra was grafted onto pop. Ever since its music was finished, I have thought that if I get to make a remix for my repackage album later on, I will make use of gong instrument in order to revive a Korean sense, and also an Oriental feeling for the song.

When I was young, I have learnt how to play Samul nori like Jang-gu, Buk and Gong. To be honest, because it is an English version, I planned to put aside the idea of adding the sound of traditional instruments but after recording the song, it came to my mind that they would match even better with an English song like this so I decided to add the sound of gong into the record. The reason why I add the ad-lib part at the end is because I want to put the fantasy and oriental sense of the song to the extreme. Imagining about that feeling in my mind, I naturally added in my ad-lib while singing.

(T/N: Samul nori is 4 traditional musical instruments of Korea, including Jang-gu, Buk, KKaeng-kwa-ri and Jing )

4. Is there any interesting episode when you recorded for this album? -@peach_xia
I already felt this when working on the worldwide album last time, I felt really carefree when recording. Because the composer respects the artist and respects his feelings 120%, I feel great when working. It is also the same at the recording time. This time when I was singing, I choked a little bit and started coughing, the composer Automatic told me that I could to have a rest until whenever I wanted and asked me to have a cup of warm tea then continue, etc he cared about me so much that I didn’t even know how to react. It was a nice time working with him.


5. Which music genre do you want to try in the future? To be honest, do you feel the most confident in any area? -@mim-ee
Honestly, rather than talking about which genre I want to try, everything is considered as challenge to me. I think that in music, the desire to always take on new challenge is very important. Rather than dividing the songs into different genre, I want to sing well every song. For the upcoming World tour, instead of a repackage album, I asked for English song and went to the US to work on my English single then released it. To me, processes like these are also considered as one kind of challenge.

6. If you get to have a duet, please tell us who are the BEST 3 female singers that you definitely want to work with and also why you choose them!
Honestly, I want to work with a lot of singers since there are a lot of excellent singers who can convey endless of feelings through their voice. I just hope that in the duet song that we sing, our voice would go well with each other and create a crossover effect. Hmm…If I really have to choose then

3rd is Lyn-noona who owns such a beautiful voice.
Then, 2nd is Baek Jiyoung-sunbaenim. I like every OST song that sunbaenim has sung.
1st is Lee Sora-sunbaenim. I felt really honored that sunbaenim has said she wanted to have a duet with me in an article a while ago and I was very impressed when I saw sunbaenim on ‘I am a singer’.

7. Because you have changed your hair color so often when traveling around for your Asia tour, it has become a hot topic among the fans. Why did you change your hair color that often? Also, which hair color do you like the most? -@bbiyoxiah
Because this is my first solo tour so I have to be well prepared and every single city in the tour is equally important. For every concert, I want to see it as a new start and do my best so I changed my hair color. Plus, because of the different color image of each country, I chose my hair color as a part of fan service. As a result, I dyed my hair to yellow for Thailand, blue for Indonesia and Taiwan, red for Shanghai.


8. For the first time in history, all seats in the Sejong Center were sold out (until now, XIA Junsu is still the only one who can do that). Whenever you perform musical, the seats will be all sold out. I think you feel very different at the curatin call when looking at the full audience. I am curious of how you feel ^^! -@For_XIA
I feel thankful. It seems that I became an extreme perfectionist because of this. I have to do as best as I can on every stage. When performing, I couldn’t see the audience but at the curtain call when I saw the whole audience very clearly, I felt so happy and grateful that tears flowed from my eyes.

Big applause from the audiences who watched a performance where all actors and staff have put in their best, then they cried and laughed with us. That is something that makes me feel so happy and thankful that I cannot express in words. And that naturally gives me motivation to do even better in the next performance.

9. Beside JYJ members, can you list some celebrities that you are close with? I am curious of XIA Junsu’s circle of friends!
I separate them into two big groups. Friends in the entertainment industry, gamers, the ones in my FC MEN team and the sunbaenims in musical industry.

I am close with Kikwang, Doojoon, Jisuk-sunbae, Hyunjoong and Sungkwang-hyung.
I often contact and hang out with some musical sunbaenims like Jo Seungwoo hyung, Seonah-noona, Park Gunhyung-sunbae, Joohyun-noona, Min Younggi-sunbaenim etc.

10. 10 years, 20 years later, what kind of artist will XIA Junsu become? Or, how do you want yourself to be in the future? Like, I think I will still continue to sing this kind of music, or It will be great if everyone always remembers me as such singer..However you want to be! -@XIA_nolene
I don’t think 10 years are too far away. In fact, I think of that as a near future. Of course, I will still take on some challenges 10 years later. Since I will never ever stop challenging myself. I hope I will become an artist in his late 30s that ages nicely. I absolutely don’t have the thought of still being a popular singer until then. Rather than that, it will be great if up to that moment, I am still not afraid of taking on challenges, still love music, still do my best on stage and also I hope to become a Kim Junsu who will get to know more about life and get wiser with age.


XIA Junsu’s recommended BGM

1. 5 songs that recently XIA Junsu has been listening to the most
1st: Gangnam style – Psy
I definitely listen to Psy hyung’s hit song very often recently.

2nd: Beautiful night – BEAST
BEAST dongsaengs’ song

3rd: Cherry blossom ending – Busker Busker
A simple song

4th: Love is dripping – 10cm

5th: So sick – Neyo

Honestly speaking, I don’t listen to any specific song or singer. The songs I listen to are random so it seems like I don’t have such thought like I must definitely recommend the song of this singer. There are times that I listen to a lot of pop songs but when I worked on my song in USA, I also listened to a lot of hip-hop and R&B. To be honest, the song that I listen to the most is my own song. In order to monitor the songs in my released album, I listen to them a lot throughout 1-2 weeks.

2. The song that brings comfort to you when you feel tired and troubled in life or the song that has a deep meaning in your life
Why can’t you love me – Park Euntae (Musical Mozart)
Golden star – Shin Youngsook (Musical Mozart)

All these 2 songs are from the musical Mozart. They are the ones that gave me a lot of comfort.

3. If you have lover, the BEST 3 songs that you want to sing to her
1st: Lullaby – Junsu (XIA)
2nd: That man – Baek Jiyoung
3rd: I love you – Tim

If I have a lover, I will want to sing a lot of sweet songs for her. This song is not in Cyworld Music but I really like the song ‘I have never loved like this’ from the musical ‘Tears of heaven’.

4. Among the songs that you have sung so far, which are the BEST 5 songs that you cherish the most:
1st: Fallen leaves – JYJ
2nd: You are so beautiful – XIA
3rd: TARANTALLEGRA – XIA
4th: I dislike love – XIA
5th: Dew-laden tree – XIA

[NEWS] XIA Tarantallegra MV (Dance Version) to be released on June 11th!


After the release of his first formal solo album, XIA Junsu, who is currently busy with his album activities, is going to release the MV (DANCE VERSION) of the title track—TARANTALLEGRA.

C-Jes, Kim Junsu’s management company, said that, “The dance version is to introduce more of the album to overseas fans amid the Asia tour. The MV released previously has created a whole new style through magical, fantastic visual effect and Junsu’s homme fatale charm, while the new MV is going to concentrate on Junsu’s dance. Junsu’s extraordinary dance performance will be seen in this new music video."

Working together with Jeri Slaughter, a famous US choreographer who used to work for Christina Aguilera’s, Junsu perfectly mastered the brand-new dance style and once again produced a high-level MV that is rare in South Korea.

The director of the mv said, “If the existing MV attracts people by showing Junsu’s homme fatale charm, the dance version mv will focus more on group dance, making it more attractive. The MV is not a continuation of the existing one but a whole new one."

Meanwhile, beginning with concerts in Seoul and Bangkok, album activities such as fansigns and other ways to communicate directly with fans are going on for Junsu to express gratitude to his fans. The dance version will be officially released via JYJ’s OFFICIAL YOUTUBE CHANNEL on JUNE 11TH.

[VIDEO] Junsu Interview: XIA 1st Asia Tour in Bangkok!


Watch Kim Junsu's interview below for his XIA 1st Asia Tour in Bangkok. The translation of the interview can be read under the video.




MC: … Now he’s ready to meet us. Are you guys ready to meet Kim Junsu? If you’re ready, please give him a big round of applause. Scream if you can. Let’s meet Kim Junsu!
MC: Please come up here on stage. We’ll let all the press have a minute to photograph him.

JS: Sawasdeekrub (T/N: Hello in Thai)

MC: Sawasdeekrub
JS: I’m Xia. *laugh*
MC: While we have a chance for a one-on-one with this guy, let’s do an interview. [To interpreter] First of all, please tell him that all of us is honored to be able to interview him.
JS: Today is the first time I get to perform a full concert [by myself] because I usually come here with my friends. This is my first solo concert, so I’d like all the fans to come and enjoy the concert with me.
MC: Everyone here is definitely going to the concert. Let’s talk about his solo album, XIA – Tarantallegra. Please talk a bit about the album and the style of the songs in this album.
JS: The concept for the songs in this album is very diverse, including the hairstyle and costumes as well. It will be completely different from the previous albums. The genres of the songs are new, too. There’s something extra put in toward the choreography.
MC: I’m told they’re very upbeat and sexy. Thai fans would be screaming at the top of their lungs.
JS: Umm, Yeah. *laugh* Thank you so much. I’m glad because, at first, I didn’t know how to express sexiness. When the album came out, fans understood what I was trying to convey. In the past, I would try to express sexiness using my body, but in this album, I would show what sexy means while remaining fully-clothed. The costume will not be revealing, but fans would still get the sense that I was being sexy.
MC: … exposing a bit of cleavage is sexy enough. *laugh*
JS: Thank you *laugh*
MC: I’m also told that this time you took on the role of producing the entire album while having your twin brother, Kim Junho, working along side. Member like Kim Jaejoong also helped out with the album as well. How did you feel about having a brother and a friend to work with?
JS: I like to thank my brothers. Although I was the producer, they helped me with composing the songs.. like ‘No Gain’. I felt very happy and grateful.
MC: What about the response from other JYJ members? How did they feel about you releasing a solo album?
JS: They’re busy filming dramas but while they’re making their ways to set, they would play and listen to my songs. They would tell me which part they like and which part they think should be fixed. It was something like that. I’m happy for all the compliment and suggestion given.
MC: What is the concept of this music video? I saw you with lots of different looks. What was your favorite look in the MV?
JS: The looks for this music video are a lot on the fantasy-side. There might be normal costumes and looks with musculinity in the past, but this time we’re adding a strong element into it. The clothes were completely from the old looks.
MC: Did you design all the costumes?
JS: The costumes were designed by my stylist. Before the designing began, we would sit down and talk about what kind of concept would suit this album.
MC: If you can choose one song from this album, which song would you pick to represent your feeling toward Thai fans? I’ll let you have a minute to think about it.
JS: The songs in this album came from a lot of genres. If I had to choose a song…. there’s one song in this album that could be used as a ‘Lulllaby’. I’d like all the fans to be able to listen to it. It could easily put them right to sleep. I want to sing for them and let them have a sweet dream.
MC:… Oh, so XIA would like to be motherly and sing a lullaby for all of us.
JS: Not as a mother. Think of it as a boyfriend who sings a lullaby for you.
MC: Adorable~! *laugh*
JS: If you look at the meaning of the song, it tells a story of a man who’s taking care of a woman. It gives a feeling of how he’s deeply in love with her and wants her to have a good dream.
MC: Wow, You’re such a romantic.
JS: A little bit. *laugh*
MC: Your big concert will be this evening. Can you tell us what’s special about your first solo concert?
JS: If you all come and see the concert, you’ll see what’s special about it. I will be much closer to the fans. Let’s meet at concert.
MC: So this evening will be a surprise! I’ve heard that you love being on twitter. If you could send a tweet for Thai fans right at this moment, what would it be?
JS: I want to take a photo of a coconut tree and tweet to let all the fans know that I’ve arrived in Thailand.
MC: A coconut tree to represent that you’ve come to Thailand?
JS: Yes. In Korea, if you want to see a coconut tree, you’ll have to go all the way to Jeju island. The thing that reminds me of Thailand is coconut tree.
MC: Ahh, so he wants to tweet that he’s arrived and let’s meet this evening. Any last word for Thai fans about the concert?
JS: I would like all the fans to come and see the concert. This is my first full concert. I want people to come and see the special things I’ve prepared for them. Thank you.
MC: Thank you, Junsu, for giving us an opportunity for this close-up interview.
