With the return of ‘Death’ by JYJ’s Kim Junsu, the award-winning musical Elisabeth completely sold out on tickets.
Ticketing for the musical took place on July 3, and all 20,000 seats were sold in five minutes, according to C-Jes Entertainment. With the large rush of people, the servers for the ticketing site also froze for some time.
In 2012, Kim Junsu played the role of ‘Death’ (Todd) and received the best actor award at the 18th Korean Musical Awards.
Elisabeth will begin on July 26 at the Seoul Arts Center.
Meanwhile, Kim Junsu is also preparing the release of his second solo album.
The best vocal XIA Junsu has returned to our side with a second album spanning many genres.
The biggest feature of his second album is his attempt at a variety of genres. Featuring composer Jeon Haesung who participated in XIA’s first album, Rain and MBLAQ’s producer C-Luv aka Taewan, Chairman (Seo Hyunil) who participated in the producing of dramas ‘That Winter The Wind Blows’ and ‘Gu Family Book’, and Kim Park Sa (Kim Daehyun) who has participated in albums of Brown Eyed Girls and Lyn have come together to unleash a new style that begins with a dance ballad and grows to include Neo-Soul and Solo Jam.
In his second album, XIA Junsu’s displays his colorful voice. With only his natural voice and an acoustic rhythm, ’11AM’ is traditional ballad that is both majestic and dramatic. Matching the season, XIA’s album includes a medium tempo dance song, as well as an impressive mix of R&B and hip hop. With his first attempt at Neo-Soul as an artist, XIA Junsu’s vocals blooms like a flower and gives listeners a strong feel as well as a sense of happiness.
The most eye-catching is the title song titled ‘INCREDIBLE’. The song was composed by Sony Music’s Automatic, who worked with XIA Junsu in his news-making American single last year. The song is a powerful, summer song about a woman’s beauty that meets XIA Junsu’s expressive lyrics, expressing a fervent energy.

Junsu Kim, one of the most talented vocalists among idol singers, established his ability again with the first one-take live video in the country.
The special clip of the pre-released acoustic song ’11:00 A.M’ which will be included in his second full-track album was produced by LOEN TV. Usually singers record vocal in the studio and shoot video separately for making a music video, his special clip was made as live-on-the-spot way.
He brought maximum emotion by singing the song live in full, rather than cutting the parts off which is a normal way of recording a song to make best outcome.
He put a special microphone under his clothes and in-ear earphone in his left ear. But he sang without any instrumental accompaniment until the middle of the song. Only a piano was accompanied middle after in his earphone.
A staff of the video explained that his work was similar to the way of making film ‘Les Miserable’ which recorded all songs live in the field in order to maximize the actors’ emotion.
The video was taken at the seaside of Daebu Island, Ansan, Gyeonggido. The staff started setting equipment at 06:00 AM and filming at 07:00 AM. Junsu Kim sang the song in full 3 times only, and all shooting finished in one hour.
“We took the video as one-take live to express the song’s lonely emotion and vocal. It’ll deliver fantastic feeling with his sweet-sorrow voice, the sound of birds and wind which we took in the field too”.
