JYJ‘s Kim Junsu (XIA) put on a superb performance in front of 5,000 fans this past week.
The singer who wrapped up successful shows in New York and Los Angeles continued his World Tour by performing at the Blackberry Auditorium in Mexico on September 6th (KST).
The fans there enthusiastically responded to his visit by perfectly singing along to his songs “TARANTALLEGRA“, “UNCOMMITTED“, “I Don’t Like Love“, “Set Me Free“, and more.
3,500 fans flocked to this performance in Mexico, and the local media outlets as well as the cultural center were shocked to see that the show had completely sold out.
Producer Alex of Mexico Media TV ‘Azteca’ remarked, “Kim Junsu (XIA) is a total performer. His independent solo album was amazing, and we feel his performance today was also remarkable. We would like to continue to share news regarding Junsu (XIA) with the Mexican fans in the future.”
And after observing Junsu’s show, Seo Nam Kyo of the Korean Culture Institue in Mexico remarked, “There are about 50,000 Hallyu fans in Mexico, and I knew that K-Pop was popular amongst the young people, however, I truly felt it after seeing this performance today. It was a performance where I was able to realize why Junsu was indeed so popular, and I hope that starting with this concert, more and more Mexicans will be able to get to know Korea.”
As soon as his performance in Mexico came to an end, Junsu got on a plane the next day to perform at Espacio Victory in São Paulo, Brazil. At the performance where 1,300 fans were present, Junsu made the crowd go wild when he stated in Portugese, ‘Obrigado (thank you)‘, and ‘EU AMO VOCÊS (I love you)‘.”
“Coming to South America to perform an independent concert was a huge challenge on my part, and I was concerned about a few different things because I could not utilize the greatest equipment, but those concerns vanished once I arrived,” Junsu said. “There were so many fans who loved my songs, and I earned new energy. I would like to take responsibility to successfully wrap up the rest of my World Tour.”
