Music critic for the August V-chart of China YinYueTai: BaoBao （爆爆）, the Executive Chief Editor of the South Korea Division of Cool Music (Cool轻音乐), a famous Chinese magazine for K-pop & J-pop
Today, Kim Junsu has the first-class background, the first-class talent, the first-class diligence and the first-class popularity, so it is almost as sure as nails that his new single—Uncommitted—will top the August V-chart. What’s more commendable than his incredible talent is that he never forgets who he is despite all the fame and success he has gained. Unquestionably he is now in a position where he can make his fans go crazy for him by only doing some sexy duckbutt-shaking or high notes. But he doesn’t want to stay where he is. He wants to be a real singer, a singer who wants to make everyone fall for his singing and dancing in spite of the lack of fair promotion on TV.
A globally best team was put together for Uncommitted. This R&B pop song, written and composed by Bruce Automatic Vanderveer, takes Junsu away from the K-pop world and into the western music world. Although one cannot connect Junsu in reality with the playboy described in the MV, Junsu’s acting as a good man with a playboy history is convincing since he has proven himself that he can successfully express temptation, Yuppie and darkness through his eyes. In this MV directed by Marc Klasfeld, a famous MV director for super stars, Junsu is telling you a love story through his eyes in every scene. With “Angel Xiah” (a characteristic gesture of Junsu, with both hands under his chin, a slight tilt of his head and the tadpole-like smiling eyes) in our memories, Junsu has grown up to be a brave and reliable man. Uncommitted? No. Junsu has been fulfilling the commitments he’s made to himself and his fans, as always; and he has been surprising us, as always.
