C-JeS Entertainment said, “Kim Junsu successfully completed his ‘2016 XIA 5th ASIA TOUR CONCERT in KOBE’ concerts held at World Memorial Hall A in Kobe, Japan from June 30 to July 2. Kim Junsu captivated an audience of 20,000 by presenting a splendid stage and the best-ever fanservice and dyeing Kobe with cheers for 3 days”.
Turning loose for his Kobe concert’ with ‘F.L.P’ –a song included in regular 3rd album– and ‘Break My Heart’ –a song included in regular 4th album–, Kim Junsu heralded his performance together with fans from the opening, saying, “Although I got to do performances in Kobe after 7 years, it is the first time as solo. I’ve missed you,” and, “I would like for a lot of shouts to help everyone’s shouts immensely. I wanted to meet you with a special performance in Kobe,” and evoked great shouts.
Kim Junsu showed exciting dance songs –like ‘XITIZEN’, ‘ROCK THE WORLD’, ‘INCREDIBLE’–, took command of the atmosphere of the concert venue on stages full of energies; and presented fans with moving emotions on stages that shows off his patented sentimental voice –like ‘Don’t Leave Me’, ‘As Usual’, and ‘..IS YOU’–.
Continuing on even in his Kobe performances, ‘Genie Time’ had repeated its evolution once again. Kim Junsu had transformed into a doctor; when he put on a robe, wore a stethoscope around his neck, and threw out a magic incantation to forget pain. He had also gotten the audience’s explosive responses when he showed ‘SWEET MELODY’ and ‘FUN Drive’ –songs included in his regular 4th album that were not incorporated in his concert setlist– live for the first time onstage.
As he completed the concert, Kim Junsu deeply moved his fans, saying, “I realized once more today that I never could have stood on this stage without everyone. Honestly, although I secretly worried about how I can show you properly since the tour schedule this time is tight, I am happy it feels like I am returning to expend all of the energy onstage and to receive more than that from everybody,” and, “I think I won’t forget the memory of being in Kobe forever”.
Meanwhile, after successfully completing Kobe concerts, Kim Junsu will continue his Asia Tour in Yokohama Arena on July 5 and 6; as well as, July 8 and 9.
