The song that made me love Junsu was Beautiful Thing. If you haven’t heard this song, you seriously need to. It is one of the best vocal performances with one of the best pieces of music I’ve ever heard him sing.
His tone, quality, pitch, everything was beautiful. And yes, he does sound like that live. I’ve also seen the live performance.
A snippet of Beautiful Thing was played as background music in Yoochun’s storyline in the mini-drama they did called ‘Vacation’. I was watching and suddenly this incredibly beautiful song came on in the background. My eyes widened and I was thinking ‘Wha?! Is that Junsu?! What’s the name of this song!”
Listen to it now:
I literally knew nothing about it and so I googled something like ‘song in background of tvxq Vacation’. And one link led to another, which led to another. And finally I had the name of that song Junsu sings in the background of Yoochun’s part of Vacation.
Finally I was able to hear the entire song. Its one of those songs you hear for the first time and for like 3 days you can’t stop singing it in your head. It’s beautiful.
Suddenly Junsu had appeared before me. Haha! Just kidding. I don’t mean literally, but figuratively. I hadn’t really noticed just how talented he really is.
Until Dec 2008, I had no idea Junsu could even play the piano! I’m serious. I am! Beautiful Thing made me love this guy’s voice. When you hear him sing on the radio you immediately know it’s him. His voice is as distinctive as his personality.
