JYJ3’s Note: This is “One Kiss” (Sample), Buy the full song here
In music I find there to be a large difference between someone that just has vocal ability and someone that has soul. In searching through the music of popular stars’ for good music which contains soul, I came across a song from a JYJ member’s latest album. When I listened to it, I felt too impressed and frankly, the song shocked me. It was reminiscent of one of those electrifying, classic Gun’s and Roses songs and even I, a 36 year old man, felt fascinated by the progression and evolution of the mood of the song and for 2 hours I listened to it, never getting tired. You could hear the soul of the singer in every breath he took and I was listening I thought, this kind of vocal power… is it what you would call… unstoppable?
I could do nothing but praise it and wish that [the singer] will never lose the color and soul in his voice… good job Kim Jaejoong.

Extract of Kim Bada’s Interview for SOL Republic
Q: We heard that you wrote a song for JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong. What kind of song is it?
- Since we are producing Jaejoong’s first solo album, we wanted to change his concept a bit. Jaejoong has already lived as a singer for a long time, so he has a lot of ambition in terms of music. Jaejoong and I were already friends over music, and he asked me for a song, then of course I wrote him one. After that, we kept in contact and I ended up writing another song for him. What I didn’t expect was that I was able to write music happily for Jaejoong and at the same time create the kind of music style that I’ve always wanted. I really liked the work that I was doing so I wrote the music very diligently. The work was musically satisfying and I felt satisfied, and thus the production was very meaningful to me. I was also very glad to see that Jaejoong, who debuted as an idol, holds so much passion for music. And through this collaboration with Jaejoong, I have became more enthusiastic and gained more creativity. So I’ve very thankful to Jaejoong as an individual.
During the press conference on the 10th, when asked what he wants to do aside from football in South Korea, new Suwon Bluewings striker Jong TaeSe (29) has answered he wanted to watch Hallyu Star Kim Jaejoong’s performance.
