Congratulations on reaching 3 million views on Youtube, Junsu!!
Junsu’s first solo album Xia Tarantallegra claimed the 9th spot on Oricon’s weekly album chart upon its release on May 20. His smooth start didn’t go unnoticed since his album climbed the chart so quickly within its first day of release.
His twin brother, Junho, isn’t far behind. His single “Everything” which was released on May 16, reached the 10th place on Oricon’s weekly singles Chart.
With the recent success of K-pop in Japan, seeing Korean singers/groups securing spots in the top 10 on Japan’s Oricon chart isn’t rare. However, seeing twin brothers ranking high on Oricon’s weekly chart is rare enough to draw much attention.

Fan base’s alliance project in Indonesia
1. Fan base provide a free banner for the audience of Junsu’s concert with long: 30cm and wide: 10 cm. On the banner:
Front side: “1st Xia Tarantallegra Concert Let’s Dance”
Back side: “Y 사랑해 ~ 우리 김준수 Y ”
2. We decide to give purple/ pink color light stick that will be lit on several songs of Junsu’s song list. But still in dissussion, because it cost 2.500usd for 5000 light stick.
3. For Charity, collecting rice before until the concert finish. That will be donated to an orphanage, etc.. We will provide the list of orphanage and so Junsu will choose the place. For fans that want to participate but cannot donate directly because could not come to the concerts so fans can send money to the fan base and fan base will help to buy rice. For convenience and tidiness, we suggest to donate with at least 3kg package rice. It’s around Rp 35.000/5usd
4. Because there’s festival class in Junsu’s upcoming concert in here, fans must be lining up from early morning to get the best place. And they probably wouldn’t want to leave their line just to eat or drink. Because of that we are worried if something happened to those fans, like fainting, fall sick,etc. So we thought of preparing a place for free drink and snack,etc
Alliance Fan base until now
@ JYJIndonesia, @ Cassiopeia_INA
Feel free to support and join us.
If this doesn’t matter, please help us to keep promote the project and donation. For all fan base which take part of this project alliance (in form of material and promotion), their names will be put in our project banner such as: hand banner, standing banner, big banner for signing, and sticker on rice donation).

JYJ’s Junsu releases solo album: Showing tight abs
(Tarantallegra lyrics in Chinese on screen)
Revealing one little red bean (T/N: cute way to say nipples) and tight abs, Junsu goes all the way out for his solo album. On the day before yesterday (16th), he announced the release of his first ever solo album.
Junsu: 80% of the songs in this album are composed by myself so this album shows completely what I want and what I think. Read More →
According to Japanese iTunes on Friday, the album entitled “Xia Tarantallegra” overtook Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga to take the coveted spot on the iTunes Album Chart.
The singer is hugely popular in Japan, and fans there put their names down on a waiting list to purchase the album even before its official release date.
The album also became the most ordered in May on Tower Records’ and Amazon Japan’s Web sites.
“As the singer has been active in Japan until recently, his popularity is just surging,” said a representative from Kim’s agency, CJeS Entertainment.
In Korea too, the album has topped various charts and is being heralded as a well-made album by critics, who praise its new and original sound that is not characteristic of K-pop.
At a press conference last week, Kim said the theme of his album is “androgynous wizard.” He has taken to cross-dressing to promote it.
JYJ member Kim Junsu gave 8,000 of his fans a night to remember at his first solo concert.
Kim Junsu held his exclusive concert, Xia 1st Asia Tour in Seoul, from May 19-20 in Seoul. 8,000 fans not only from Korea, but also from Japan, China, Malaysia, Canada, Chile and France crowded the venue to witness Kim Junsu’s solo debut.
A rep from Kim Junsu’s agency C-JeS Entertainment told enews on May 20, “The concert sold out all of its tickets as soon as they were opened for sale last month, and fans from all over the world came in to celebrate Xia’s (Kim Junsu) first solo concert. There were so many fans who passed out in the middle, we plan to prepare more ambulances for today’s performance. It was such a splendid concert that fans couldn’t seem to pull themselves away from the venue after the exciting two hours had gone by.”
Kim Junsu told a perfect 90 minute long story with 17 performances, which included 11 songs from his first studio album and a few musical numbers. Jeri Slaughter, the man best known for being Christina Aguilera’s choreographer, held auditions in America for Kim Junsu’s concert and managed to put together the best dance team.
He perfected the performances of the concert’s main attractions, including those for Tarantallegra, No Gain and Breath.
