South Korean group JYJ member Kim Junsu released his solo album ‘Tarantallegra’ last month and yesterday on Dragon Boat Festival, he held his concert ‘XIA 1st Asian Tour In Taiwan’ for the first time at National Taipei University’s gymnasium. Fans sent him rice dumplings as a (dragon boat festival’s) tradition for him to replenish his energy. Kim Junsu did not let his fans down either. He whined to the fans and acted cutely, making his fans screaming non stop!
Kim Junsu appeared on stage with a blue suit singing his own composition ‘Breath’, and then greeted his fans, “How’s everyone? I am XIA. It’s been so long. I missed you all.” He then followed by Jaejoong’s ballad composition ‘No Gain’ and danced closely with the female dancers. During the performance of ‘Lullaby’, the female dancer were lying on his lap and then the two had a rousing dance. During the dance number ‘Tarantallegra’, he descended slowly from a 3m high stage.
Kim Junsu changed a total of 6 outfits, together with 8 dancers, singing a total of 17 songs for 2 hours. 11 new songs from his new album were sung. Upon singing ‘I Hate Love’, he said,” I spent a lot of effort finishing this song. I hope everyone will like it.” Additionally he sang ‘Scent of a Woman’ OST ‘You Are So Beautiful’, ‘Last Dance’ from musical ‘Elisabeth’ etc and concluded the concert with ‘Fallen Leaves’. After he finished his encore with ‘Mission’, ‘Dew Tree’ and ‘Fallen Leaves’, he teared up and thanked Taiwanese fans’ passionate support.
Kim Junsu also fulfilled the three wishes fans have prepared, including transforming into a kitty-like cuteness, and angel pose. Before Kim Junsu did all these actions, he would shyly giggled and slowly retreat backwards while fans were screaming ‘So cute!’ at him. His ex-Miss Korea mother and father were seated in the audience, enjoying his concert.
Last year, he came with his group and had a concert at Taipei Dome. This time he came alone and yet his popularity remains. Even though there were an extra of 200 tickets sold, the 3800 tickets were sold out completely, a total of 10.64 million TWD. In his Asia tour, the ticket price of Taiwan’s stop was the nearest to Korea’s and the production fee was a high 4.5 million TWD. The day before after his press conference, Kim Junsu went nearby his hotel and bought a bag to treat himself and he left Taiwan today. In view of Dragon Boat Festival, his fans also sent him 100 sets of fan support goods which includes longevity buns, perfume sachets, rice dumplings and fruits etc.
