On April 13th, Kim Junsu won the Best Korean Male Artist Award at China’s largest music video website Yin Yue Tai’s award ceremony, the V-Charts Awards, with his English single ‘Uncommitted’.
Kim Junsu’s award is receiving attention for being voted by fans all around the world. He was not selected by a board of judges, but rather through the online V-chart results for the year of 2012 and an additional round of voting. He was awarded first place with the most number of points.
Kim Junsu’s first English single, ‘Uncommitted’, is a sweet and mellow R&B song composed by Sony Music composer, Bruce Automatic, who has worked with the likes of The Wanted and Leona Lewis. With this song, he received a huge response from China to South America and Europe.
CJES Entertainment stated, “As this award ceremony is decided by aggregated chart results, there is even more meaning to this award. Kim Junsu is very happy and thankful that he won first place with a song that was revealed through only a music video and some performances. He plans to express his gratitude through a video.”
Additionally, a music representative said, “After JYJ’s recent ‘The Return of the JYJ’ concerts in Tokyo Dome, ‘Uncommitted’ placed #1 on Amazon’s K-Pop chart and is showing its immense popularity. Kim Junsu showed his musical capabilities to fans worldwide with his 13-city world tour last year, receiving a hot response even in Europe and South America.”
