JYJ’s Kim Junsu landed in Taiwan as a solo singer and delivered a magical 100-minute-long performance for the 3,600 fans there.
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.
The singer tried to talk to his fans in Chinese, but the fans nevertheless answered him in Korean.
Kim Junsu said, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in Taiwan, and I want to thank you for showing me such love. 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.”
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.”

On June 22nd, JYJ‘s Junsu arrived at Taiwan for his next stop in his solo Asia tour promotion.
Opening up with a press conference at the Grand Formosa Hotel, Junsu was interviewed by major media outlets along with a number of surprise events planned by his event sponsors. Before the start of the interviews, they had prepared a special table of traditional Taiwanese food for Junsu to taste and try such as apple pies, pineapple pies, various fried foods, and bubble tea. Junsu didn’t spare his praise, commenting that they were delicious.
When the host mentioned that Junsu must feel lonely visiting the country alone, the host and his interpreter amused the crowd by offering to act as fellow members Jaejoong and Yoochun.
Junsu expressed, “It’s been a year since I last visited Taiwan for JYJ’s concert last year so it feels very new to me. Thank you for welcoming me so warmly. I promise you a great concert.”
