Kim Jaejoong and sinawe’s Kim Bada. Although this is a unpredicted combination, it seems very natural and logical. Kim Jaejoong’s first solo mini album “I” is produced together by Kim Jaejoong, Kim Bada and The Koxx’s Shaun. This album is the result of Jaejoong merging everything he likes, skilled at, and fits with together. Singer who has debuted for 9 years, a member of JYJ, a relatively new actor – all these tags must make Jaejoong heart heavy. However, with the release of the first mini album, what Jaejoong thinks about this most is: because I like it, so I want to try; because I like it, so I want to show it for the fans. During the Round interview on January 21st, Kim Jaejoong opened up: “Because I’ve always liked rock music since I was little, so in spite of the burden, I chose to sing rock. I also did this for the fans who have always liked me, I want to fulfill what they want to see.”
Q1: So you chose rock as your genre for the first solo album?
I’ve always liked rock music since I was little, and I frequently sing it. During group activities, my solos during the concerts were all re-arranged versions of Korean rock music. The solo single released in Japan was also a rock song. Although there were a lot of chances for me to sing rock music, I didn’t imagine my solo album would be rock also, what’s more is my heart that decided to take the chance. I was very fortunate to have the help from sunbaes like Kim Bada so I could have the opportunity to complete a good album.
Q2: You seem a little concerned with making rock music?
Because I didn’t start off as a rock singer, so I felt burdensome towards stereotypes. However, I felt really great after knowing that everyone treated me with a very accepting heart. I wanted to make an album that after listening to my music, both rock lovers and the general public can say something like “oh, this is not bad”. And this kind of determination helped me a lot too.
