Q: Fans have been waiting for your solo album for 9 years. Please say something for the fans who have waited.
A: It’s been 9 years since my debut, for us everything has changed a lot more than we expected, and it obviously took a lot more time than I intended. It’s obvious, but to be honest I also..It will be sad when I talk about this issue but I’m fine with it now, so are the other members. Everything was beautiful before but honestly, even though we have appeared on TV and I used to want to appear on variety shows a bit but recently I don’t want to go to TV shows anymore. Frankly, it is really…with that much…But as I have said before… not doing something and not being able to do it is completely different in my mind so honestly, I was really worried when releasing the solo album that I’ve been expecting and waiting for too. At first, when the director proposed the idea, I rejected his proposal. I didn’t want to release my solo album like this…I want to show better things but waiting again seems so long, also meeting the public through musicals like this obviously has its limits too. Acting in drama is clearly risky. Well even though it’s not that risky and I could do it, but I am not satisfied with myself. Since, later if there is a good opportunity, I will be able to act in a drama but when comparing it with an album, of course I want to choose an album. When putting them on scales and looking back at myself, I am a bit…The siuation right now is difficult…Working as a singer feels so hard so I have even thought of acting, even though I thought like that but to be honest, I like singing. I really like singing. If musical was only about acting, I would have avoided it too but because I was able to sing, I really like it. That’s why I started (being in musical). Anyway, even though it was late…But when thinking about releasing the album this time, if I did release it years ago, I would obviously not be able to write the music that I want to write like I do right now, it would have been a solo album made by someone else for me. It would not be the music that I want to show, that I want to communicate with my fans, so because a solo album is important like that, it’s better to release it now. Also, because of the album this time, I was pessimistic about releasing an album in such situations but because everyone of you has been supporting me for 9 years long…that really gave me strength to release it. So honestly, the album is able to be released thanks to every single one of you. That’s all I want to say. Thank you.

It’s been 3 days since XIA concert in Bangkok and my memory is starting to get vague but the emotions still linger. If you have a chance to watch Junsu live, don’t hesitate at all because he is too awesome for words. After going back to my country, I have watched some fancams from the Bangkok concert, hoping they could revive the awesome moments for me but they are not helping at all. Fancams really don’t give Junsu’s voice any justice whatsoever, they now all sound so flat to my ears. I wish I were rich enough to tour all over Asia with him T___T
My flight landed at 11.45am Sunday 27/05, in Bangkok and after going around the airport hopelessly to look for one of my friends, I took a metered taxi heading straight away to Siam Paragon where the concert is going to be held. By the time I got there, there were already hundreds of fans crowded in front of the entrance waiting to exchange the tickets and buy official goods. At the information desk in front of the entrance, JYJBox staffs were selling their fangoods and they were showing the video of Junsu greeting Thai fans there as well. While wandering around, I met Lyn from Indonesia, May from Malaysia and Goy from Thailand. (Really nice to meet you girls ~ You guys are all so nice to me!!!) Lyn told me that we could get the tickets at 3pm and the goods would start being sold at 3.30pm so I’d better go to my hostel, check-in then come back but I was so excited that I didn’t want to leave at all so after picking up my picnicxiah goods, a friend and I looked around the lobby then suddenly at 2.20pm, everyone started rushing and Lyn texted me that we could already exchange the tickets.
