The ranking where there was public confidence voted by many experts
XIA Junsu held a music roundtable at ‘Hyundai Card Music Library’ in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul at 2 PM on October 15 and said, “Kim Kang-woo and Fujii Mina will come out in the music video for my title track ‘Just Yesterday'”.
XIA Junsu said, “This is the first time that I am doing a lyrical ballad, as the title for my solo. That much, it is an unusual challenge for me to an extent. I had decided on it because I had the thought ‘this is a song where you can feel the taste of autumn’”.
Continuing, he added, “I had picked this song as the title because it has quite a different ambience from the songs I have sung. It may seem to be filled with sadness and perplexity but if you look closely at the lyrics, it feels like a hopeful love letter. It’s the kind of thing that will captivate your heart”.
Actors Kim Kang-woo and Fujii Mina make their appearances in ‘Just Yesterday”s music video; and played their parts earnestly.
About this, XIA Junsu disclosed with a broad smile, “I had wanted Kim Kang-woo hyung-nim to certainly make an appearance and asked for his favor. I am thankful that he gave me his support and readily agreed to do it”. And, “Also, I was touched by Fujii Mina-ssi and her role; she is a person who was a main character in the music video for the song called ‘Dōshite Kimi o Suki ni Natte Shimattandarō?(どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう？/ Why Did I End Up Falling in Love With You)’ that was released when I was active in Japan. I think a great music video was born thanks to the two’s avid performances”.
