In my hand is the cover of his CD
It looks like it has a lacy feel to it
Right, it looks very pretty
Also look at the picture he took this time, it’s different from the Junsu we know in the past
Did you know, this album’s sales is super good
In Korea, his entire sales volume already surpassed 120,000.
Also I hear it happened in a very short time period right?
Right! Also he was ranked 10th on Billboard’s worldwide rankings.
This time with the release of his album, also coming to Taiwan to hold a concert
To all JYJ fans, this is a very happy thing.
Also his concert tickets were sold out within short 30 minutes
3500 tickets all sold out
That’s right that’s right.
What makes everyone very surprised is also 80% of this album was composed by Kim Junsu himself.
Also, I remember last time Jaejoong also came to Taiwan. Right?
When Jaejoong came to Taiwan, a lot of fans asked him to sing

Also this time, we see… Do you know Junsu has a twin?
His twin brother, also helped him write lyrics for songs in this album
I think this is great, it is older brother writing songs for younger brother
Right, I always had a dream that I have a twin brother. Don’t you wish for that?
Twins not so much, but I always dreamed of having a younger brother. Because I have a younger sister and an older brother, so I want a younger brother. Because I can ask him to do anything for me. haha~
Isn’t your younger brother always by your side?
Right, but he feels like an assistant
[Summary of Conference + Fan Interviews]
JYJ’s Junsu came to Taiwan by himself to hold his solo concert, and he appeared with platinum silver hair for the conference. He even showed a bit of Chinese by saying “Hi everyone, I’m Xia Junsu.” Junsu who missed Taiwanese cuisines very much exclaimed “Great!” in Chinese when he tried steamed buns, pineapple cakes, bubble tea and fried chicken.
During the conference, Junsu and the host talked about his work a lot. Regarding his female image in the music video, Junsu even said that he thinks he looked fairly beautiful: “To be honest, when I first decided to dress up as a woman, I was very worried. I was considering whether if I should make myself look extremely feminine, but at the same time, I was concerned that it may bring some discomfort for the audience. So, in my opinion, the staff put in a lot of effort to make me look more feminine but not awkward, which made the process not feel terrible. In all honestly, it was much better than I thought.”
‘Perfect! Never seen such a singer!’
After successful ‘XIA 1st Asia Tour in Taiwan’ concert on June 23 at the Taiwan University Stadium, the local community has shown enthusiastic response to Kim Junsu(XIA).

His concert was a series of surprise and admiration. I’ve never seen such a concert. I’m very happy seeing such a star like Kim Junsu on the spot.”

Kim Junsu’s solo concert, Xia 1st Asia Tour in Taiwan, took place on June 23 at the Sports Center in National Taiwan University.
The fans filling up the venue cheered at Kim Junsu’s every move. They never stopped shouting out the names ‘Xia’, ‘Junsu’ and ‘oppa’, and a majority of the fans showed they could understand Korean by answering in Korean even before an interpreter could interpret Kim Junsu’s words.
The performance used stage and audio devices that were similar to those used in the Seoul concert, including the large LED screen, and the fans’ reactions also didn’t fall behind those of the fans in Korea.
Kim Junsu entertained his Taiwanese fans with his smooth vocals and explosive performances.
He sang all of his ballads, musical numbers and dance performances live, from his first performance Breath to the last,Fever. Fans swayed with the mood, and whenever he put on a ballad, they even showed tears at his touching vocals.

I hesitated a lot while preparing for this album, but I think it’s great that I decided to release it because I can hold concerts and meet with fans like this. I leave with so many great memories. I’ll definitely come back to Taiwan as a member of JYJ or as Xia.”
During his concert’s trademark ‘Genie time’, in which Kim Junsu answers three requests from his fans, he had to wink, act cute with a ‘Bbuing bbuing’ and put on an expression dubbed ‘Angel Xia’ by his fans. The ‘Bbuing bbuing’ request especially showed how popular the Korean wave was in the country.
Before he put on the ‘Angel Xia’ expression, Kim Junsu made his audience laugh by asking the men to “close your eyes.”
Singer Kim Junsu‘s news of a successful concert was relayed by his agency CJeS Entertainment on the 24th.
According to CJeS Entertainment the latest concert was held at the gymnasium in National Taiwan University and 3600 concertgoers cheered for Kim Junsu.
CJeS announced, “The fans cheered for him for all 90 minutes of the concert. During the concert the fans continuously shouted ‘XIA, Junsu, and oppa’ and they didn’t stop cheering for him. Some of the fans didn’t even need translation as they replied to what Kim Junsu was saying before the translator had the chance to translate.”
Continuing, “Kim Junsu sang ballad songs, the songs from his musical, and dance songs all 100% live. During his ballad song performance there were fans who shed tears moved by the performance.”
Kim Junsu stated at the concert, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Taiwan, I thank you for giving me so much love. I was very nervous preparing my latest album, but now that I’m able to meet you the fans and also hold a concert like this, I think I made the right decision. I go back having made lots of good memories. As JYJ or as XIA, I will definitely come back to Taiwan again.”
A concert crew stated, “When he was finished singing the last song we couldn’t hear what were said over the two-way radio because the fans cheered so loudly for an encore song. The last song he performed ‘A Tree Covered In Dew’ was sang in chorus with the Taiwanese fans and it was incredible how the fans knew the lyrics and the pronunciation perfectly.”
Kim Junsu is currently on an Asian Tour after having released his solo album recently. He drew 26,000 concertgoers so far in countries include Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, and Taiwan. The 5th country on the tour list is China and he’ll be holding a concert in Shanghai on July 7th.

Kim Jun-su, known best as a member of the boy band JYJ, kicked off his Asia solo tour on Sunday in Bangkok. More than 1,000 fans gathered to greet him at the airport.
Ahead of his show, which took place at the Royal Paragon Hall, the Hallyu singer met with more than 100 journalists to talk about his show and tour.
“I’m thrilled to kick off my tour of Asia in Thailand. I want tonight’s show to set a precedent for other great shows to come,” the entertainer said.
He also said that as a solo artist he will try new things and break away from the cookie-cutter mold of K-pop to find his own identity.
“It’s a bit progressive and shocking,” Kim said of his title track “Tarantallegra.”
With his new direction, Kim said he hoped to become a trend setter rather than a mere follower in the K-pop industry.
When journalists asked which song he most looked forward to singing at his 4,000-seat sell-out show, he replied, “Lullaby.”
JYJ member Kim Junsu, who is currently promoting as a solo artist, has successfully held the first concert of his Asia Tour in Thailand.
Kim Junsu had some 4,000 fans in heated excitement holding ‘XIA First Asia Tour in Bangkok’ on May 27th at 6pm (Thailand time) at the Bangkok Royal Paragon. The fans were especially excited to see Kim Junsu perform his solo debut title song ‘Tarantallegra’ which has garnered much attention after the music video was revealed through YouTube.
Kim Junsu also prepared a talk segment for his Thai fans and said some words in Thai, such as “It’s good to see you again” and “I love you. Kiss.”
Kim Junsu boasted dynamic performances with perfectly powerful choreography during ‘Breathe’ and ‘Fever’. Kim Junsu also showed off his smooth voice performing ‘You Are So Beautiful’ and ‘I Don’t Like Love’. Wrapping up the concert, Kim Junsu shed tears as he sang ‘Fallen Leaves’ for the encore and shared, “I am lucky to start the Asia Tour with such an overwhelming feeling. I truly thank the fans who fill the concert and root for me.
Kim Junsu’s management company CJeS Entertainment relayed, “The 60 days of Asia Tour has started and the first performance has been successful. In releasing the album, there was not any broadcast, or huge PR but the fact that there is such explosive reaction speaks for the power of artist Kim Junsu’s competency and truth in doing his best in every moment.”
Kim Junsu’s first solo album Asia Tour will continue on June 16th in Jakarta, Indonesia.
