Whether it was movies or dramas, all of the JYJ members kept busy this year with various solo projects, but Kim Junsu chose to stick to music in 2012, and if the headlines are any indication, it’s a good thing he did.
From selling out concert tickets to crashing servers, Kim Junsu lived up to fans’ high expectations.
His solo album Xia – Tarantallegra became the best-selling album in Gaon Chart’s history. But the singer was full steam ahead, as he released another single album Uncommitted in August.
It′s clear Kim Junsu put a spell on his fans with ‘Tarantallegra’, since his success in 2012 was by all means, magical.
[parts unrelated to Junsu omitted]
Kim Junsu (Xia) won Best Dance Performance (Solo) on 2012 Remarkable Awards – German Korean Entertainment Awards with Tarantallegra. Remarkable Awards was started in 2012. The nominees were selected by a jury based on the results of the German Asian Music Charts and the winners were picked through online voting by German K-pop fans.
The nominees for Best Dance Performance (Solo) on this year’s Remarkable Awards include: BoA – Only One, Jay Park – I Love You, J.Y. Park – You are the One, and Se7en – When You Can’t Sing. Watch the video below (Junsu’s category starts on 5:45).
The returning XIA with a unique differentiation through “Tarantallegra” released its making before the ballad concert. It is a new dramatized version of the visual of Tarantallegra which has been completed grotesquely and dreamy along with authentic ballad style “Knowing”.
Endowed with a unisex and oriental sense, XIA’s transcendent ability is well expressed. Even though this music video is based on the background music of “Even Though I Already Know”, another story of Tarantallegra is described. The unchallenged ‘masculine XIA’ and another soft self ‘feminine XIA’ appear. The combination of these two XIAs represents their strong will of having overcome their internal fight. Beyond the invisible limit of fear, it can be interpreted as a message showing the existence of the transcendent power. Let’s jump into the charming magic of XIA.
The year of 2012 means a lot for JYJ′s Kim Junsu. It was a year in which his feats as a member of his group and as a solo singer both prospered.
This year he released his first solo album, successfully led a world tour with his name on it and as a musical actor, won the Best Actor Award.
While his fellow JYJ members Park Yoo Chun and Kim Jae Joong took on acting, Kim Junsu led a successful career as a singer despite his inability to appear on TV to perform.
5 Million Viewers for Tarantallegra.

XIA 1ST ASIA TOUR CONCERT ‘TARANTALLEGRA’ DVD TEASER
Hello, Cyworld members!
I am XIA, greeting everyone through my official solo album and English single.
Nice to meet you.
1. This time, TARANTALLEGRA is a song that you personallly composed and I was very surprised at its fairly high quality. Since when have you started composing songs? – Gwon Gooyoung
Firstly, the musical aspect of this song is also important but because I pictured out the visual aspect first then composed it, I worked on both composition and filming for the music video at the same time. Besides, the music video was released 1 day before the song itself so I have to work harder on the visual aspect like choreography and fashion etc to make the song even better.
I think I started composing when I was 20. I learnt about the basics of composition and naturally strengthened my skills as what I felt and learnt by myself along the way. At the moment, I still want to learn more about this and also compose more songs.
