– What do you think when starting your World Tour right after concluding the Asia tour?
I have been in a lot of Asia Tours but it was the very first Asia Tour of my own. I started off with many worries and concerns but when performing in Hong Kong, I thought back at the first time when I gathered my courage. Because there are no broadcast activities whatsoever, releasing not a single but a full album is a big burden and releasing a full album for my concert also gave me pressure.
In the middle of many worries, I gathered my courage, released my album and I have received much more love than I thought. Rather than saying I got the fruits of my labor from the concert, it has become a chance for me to see a gleam of hope and picture out my future. The year 2012 feels like a dream and it is such a significant year in my entire life. Starting off my World tour in New York, I will do my best and be responsible as a representative of Korea and Asia who gets to hold concert in the US and even in South America.
At the 2012 Seoul Drama Awards, a dashing Yoochun won the “Outstanding Hallyu Drama Male Actor” award for his work in Rooftop Prince. The 26 year old singer/songwriter/actor dedicated the award to his late father who passed away in March 2012.
Junsu made the list of ‘must see’ concerts this week on NorthJersey.com. Columnist Kendra Recht posts about Junsu’s upcoming concert, among a few chosen others, and mentions the fact that Junsu writes and produces his own music. Check it out:
Junsu confidently introduced himself to America at a press conference in the heart of Times Square on Aug 29.
Junsu is kicking off the Western leg of his solo tour with a performance on August 30 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan.
Unlike a few other artists which have tried to jump from Asia to America, Junsu plans to be his own person instead of an Asian copy of an American artist.
Both Yoochun and his costar, Han JiMin (lastname,firstname) both won actor and actress popularity awards for the 2012 Seoul Drama Awards. Rooftop Prince is one of the most popular and well reviewed dramas this year and showcased Yoochun’s acting and comedic side perfectly.
Junsu finished the Asian leg of his “XIA 1st Asia Tour” on Aug 26 with officials from Hong Kong’s Ministry of Culture present.
The officials who were at the concert along with 3500 lucky fans reportedly praised the honey voiced singer for his talent and professionalism.
