JYJ’s Kim Junsu (XIA) will appear on public broadcasting in Australia.
On September 21st, CJES Entertainment stated, “When Kim Junsu visits Australia, he will appear on public network SBS’s program ‘PopAsia’. Kim Junsu will perform his first public broadcast stage during the program’s ‘Kim Junsu special’, which can be viewed by all of Australia. Additionally, Kim Junsu recording for the show will be broadcasted live via SBS Radio, which will be a huge present for fans who cannot attend the performance.”
Australia’s SBS (Special Broadcasting Network) is a government-funded, nation-wide network that is viewed by 8,000,000 Australians per week, which is approximately 40% of the total Australian population. ‘PopAsia’ is Australia’s first program focused on Asian pop music and receives high viewership ratings, gaining attention from the public.
An Australian broadcasting representative said, “The response from the interview with JYJ was extremely hot. We have received non-stop questions about Kim Junsu’s appearance through SNS and telephone, and we feel Kim Junsu’s popularity in Australia.”
After releasing his second album in July, Kim Junsu has showed his perfect live performances in Bangkok, Shanghai, Seol and Busan, receiving favorable responses for his high-level performances. Kim Junsu will continue his Japan tour after appearing on the Australian broadcast and completing his concert in Australia on September 28th.
After Uncommitted , Incredible is your second hit project with Xia Junsu and CJES? How do you feel about it?
We’re so happy that we have another successful song with Junsu. We’re looking forward to working with JYJ next.
Unlike Uncommitted your second song Incredible gives a very hippy feeling. It’s totally different from your first collaboration. Why did you wanted to go so different this time?
Incredible was written specifically for Junsu soon after C-JeS let us know that he wanted to record Uncommitted. My writing partner, Ebony Rae Cunningham and I decided to write a song that would be a good platform for Junsu’s dance skills. The word “incredible” set the tone for the feeling and vibe that we wanted to give him.
Whose idea was Incredible? How did such great song came into your mind?
One day, I was having a conversation with Jim Vellutato, Vice President of Sony/ATV about placing songs on artists. He said, “You have to come up with ‘Something Incredible’ and I said, “Something Incredible would be a great title.” So Ebony and I wrote a song with the title “Something Incredible.” It was later changed to just Incredible. So, the idea came from the VP of Sony. How cool is that?!

Let’s have fun, build friendships, share news, and be happy in JYJ ^__^
