A concert band member commented about his ticket power, “There’s no question about his unmatched ticket power. He filled arenas in Japan right after his hiatus. I was aware of his popularity, but I felt his powerful influence first hand after I saw the countless fans fill the huge venues in and out of Korea”.
Band member commented about Jaejoong’s Everyday Personality: “He is a huge star but is such a down to earth type of person. He is so friendly and cares for everyone who works with him. He makes eye contact with each member of the band on stage as he sings. I was so amazed by this”.
Band member commented about Jaejoong’s Singing and performance: “I’ve worked with a lot of various artists, but Kim Jaejoong is the first artist I’ve seen who can both sing well and perform well at the same time. I realized, that he tries so hard to make this perfection possible as I toured with him this time. He sang all songs live, never lowering the key. He practiced over and over during rehearsals to sing the songs in the original key. I was truly impressed. He filled the huge stage by himself. Singing 20 or so songs, all in high key, for 2-3 days straight every time without any issues, was simply awesome”.
Band member who worked most closely with Jaejoong commented about his relationship with fans: “In addition, I also realized how much effort Kim Jaejoong puts into his concerts beside the music, when we saw him learning jokes and popular gags in local dialects in order to better communicate with fans in the middle of his performances. He is flawless in leading the whole concert alone, he is a thoroughly prepared singer inside and out. He treats his fans with sincerity and identifies with them. He is not just a celebrity but also someone who seem to have created a bond with his fans through various musical instruments”.
Kim Jaejoong is expected to continue to be loved owing to his endless efforts for aiming for a perfect performance, to his friendly personality, his care for his fans and building a bond with them.
Kim Jaejoong will continue his performances starting with Hong Kong concert at Asia World Expo on March 11th and following Thailand, Macau and Taiwan respectively.
I was able to stand before you again on December 30, 2016
We met again like this
I ran for more than 10 years without any rest
My time embodied both the ecstatic laughter and bitter loneliness
You are the one who held my hands and lifted me up when I wanted to fold
So I didn’t fear the separation.
I pushed myself harder and faster to create more memories
“How can I spend more time with you?”
That was the only thought I had in my mind before enlistment.
“What if you stop thinking about me?”
Those small thoughts made me restless and anxious
Looking back, I guess you were stronger than me at that time.
Will I be able to feel them again?
I missed you so much
Nothing else in the world can replace that feeling
I savored our memories as I counted the days
And we met again like this
My time (in Army) was more precious
Because I had the place to comeback and clear reason to return
Thank you for waiting
