Last weekend, Kim Jae Joong successfully carry out two solo concerts in Nanjing, which is also his first time holding consecutive concerts in China.
On December 7th, Nanjing fell to the haze which resulted in flights being cancelled and fans had to change to high speed rail or chartered transport, braving much difficulties, just to make sure they managed to get to the concert venue.
Facing a full crowd, Jae expressed with mixed feelings “I was worried many fans may not be able to make it due to the weather, but fortunately all came.”
Two consecutive days of concert with a total attendance of almost 10,000 people shows Kim Jae Joong’s box office appeal.
Since last year’s October, from fan-meetings to concerts, this is Kim Jae Joong’s 3rd time holding individual performances in Nanjing in roughly a year.
2013 is his 10th year since his debut and is undoubtedly enriching; from his first mini album, first full solo album, Asia tours and his first consecutive concerts in China.
After the press con and prior to the concert, Sina managed to meet up with Kim Jae Joong for the 3rd time in Nanjing in about a year and talked about his new songs and his concerts.

Sina: Please say hello to the netizens on Sina.
Jaejoong: Hi everyone, I am Jaejoong. It’s a pleasure to meet everyone.
Sina: When did you start preparing for this album? Since you released a mini album this January, we thought it might be a while until the next one.
Jaejoong: Yes, it has been ten months since the release of the mini album, and I get to greet everyone this time with a brand new album. During this window of time, I really thought a lot about the concept and the music genre I should greet everyone with this time. The amount of work and effort that was invested in these past ten months created a lot of excellent concepts and music, so I think this album turned out better than I had expected.
Sina: When we interviewed you for the mini album, you mentioned that you wanted to continue with the rock genre for your next album. Did you have a great time with your experimentation on different types of rock music?
Jaejoong: I feel that more types of rock music is included in this album than last time – songs that are more finely done, softer, with stronger tempo and harmonizations.
Note: Full Interview with SINA will be out tomorrow^^
