[ANNOUNCEMENT] With Junsu Turned into XIAH Press

Featured

Hello readers:)

I’m well aware of the inactiveness of With Junsu currently.
However, while talking with other Xiahpwas, we came to a conclusion that an international Junsu fansite is necessary, so I suggested renewing With Junsu instead of making a whole new site.
With help of other Xiahpwas, a new homepage has been created.
For readers’ convenience, informations are organized in categories. There is a forum too, where members who joined with us can freely talk and spazz!
http://www.xiahpress.com

See you over there from now on! Thank you for readers who stayed with us on With Junsu

Notice: Re-open of With Junsu

Featured

Dear Fans of JYJ and Junsu

Hello. With Junsu is re-opening. I previously closed the blog about 2 months ago, due to my studies. Originally, I was planning to leave With Junsu to others until I finish my school years and come back. However, because I abruptly became busy, I forgot about it and had no choice but to close the blog entirely. As I thought it over, I decided even though I would not be able to run the blog full time, I still wanted to have a place where fans can come and go, share Junsu and discuss freely. Therefore, I decided to open With Junsu once again.

With Junsu is a rather casual blog. Pictures, videos and fan accounts-not necessarily new ones-will be uploaded, not only informations. The main purpose of the site is to make a place where anyone can join and enjoy. If you have affection for JYJ and Junsu, you will certainly be welcomed.

With Junsu will be connected to @_WithJunsu on Twitter. Every information posted on this blog will be on @_WithJunsu as well.

Thank you to my friends who agreed to help me running With Junsu again. We will endeavor to make a enjoyable place.

Monica

[Trans] Interview of Sylvester Levay with NewsWave in Korea

Interview of Sylvester Levay with NewsWave in Korea

** Mr. Levay is a original composer of <Mozart!> and <Elizabeth>

This is a forth visit to korea for Mr. Levay, and there’s a special bond with him and this country. Kim Junsu is one of those specials, who played the lead on works of Levay in a row. He took a title role in <Mozart!>, and currently casts as ‘Tod’ in <Elizabeth>.

Mr. Levay raved about the performance of this rising star. “Junsu is at one with the character on the stage.” Then, he talked about their first meeting with a bright face.

“I met Junsu in the opening of <Mozart!> for the first time. He was so friendly and such a sweetheart as now. Thankfully, Junsu told me that he was fascinated by my music. Since that day, we’ve got to be friends. I’ve watched the process of his growth as an actor for the last 2 years. Junsu isn’t overawed by a character to be but is assimilated so naturally, and I respect that tremendously. Especially in the case of <Mozart!>, there are many similarities between the protagonist and Junsu himself. This point had a strong influence on his heartful performance, I guess.”

For Mr. Levay, ‘Tod’ is a special character. The allegory of Tod as god of death has its long own history. This deep-rooted traditional character was adapted for <Elizabeth>, and lend a fantastic atmosphere to the play.

Mr. Levay responded to a question about the performance of Junsu as ‘Tod’.

“As you know, ‘Tod’ is utterly different from ‘Mozart’. And I was very impressed with his acting to go into this new character when I saw him in rehearsals. Actually, I changed my departure schedule for watching his first performance. We are like family now and our real families, too.”

And Junsu told that he was a big fan of Mr. Levay, and chose this play unhesitatingly because of the brilliant music.

[Review] Musical “Elisabeth”

(omit)

For Kim Junsu, who is at his peak of his musical career, his husky voice and over-pronunciation which still clearly delivered the messages in his lines, were unfamiliar to the audiences but very much close to who he was: Der Tod. Kim’s relaxed voice and his evenly flowing breathing sound melted into Tod’s song, a particularly slow one among all 44 tracks. It embraced a strange atmosphere with Kim’s voice. Just like Kim promised that he will play an “active” version of Tod, every bit of his movement had a strong, yet soft, tension. His vocal technique of using his chest and head back and forth breathed life into the relationship between Tod and Elisabeth, who endlessly longed for the death of freedom.

[Trans] Writers’ Thanks in the K Star Magazine (March 2012)

– Jang, Kyungjin(interviewer) :

When I’d have a plan to interview with Xiah-Junsu, I couldn’t expect this kind of recognition that far. But he surpassed all my expectation. Junsu was a very nice and genuine person. His eyes were shining brightly, and his unique laughter really sounded like “u-kyang-kyang,” the onomatopoeia which his fans used for imitating that voice.

Most of all, I was very much impressed with his positive view of life. (So I want to give him a new nickname, “apostle Positive Kim”.) By his favor, I reminded many precious memories and feelings which had laid aside in my mind because of a busy life.

Junsu, I’ll remember you, and the feathers that you scattered for the stage against all odds ^.^

– Choi, Jieun(interviewer) :

The interview with Xiah-Junsu was so delightful. He was serious for his music and musical play, of course. But on the topics like dance, soccer, car and JYJ members, he chattered with the mirth.

Lastly I asked him which team would be a winner of Euro 2012. At that time, he was in a fitting room to change his clothes because of a tight schedule. Suddenly he opened a curtain half, and grappled for a while. Then he replied to a question with some significant in his face. “Umm…… Spain!” After that, he smiled again like a boy who came up with a solution to the very troubling problem.

Junsu is a refreshingly candid and breezy, and I find very appealing on his own personality.
