It’s my first time posting and commenting on the music video of Junsu’s title song ‘TARANTALLEGRA’  from his recently released solo album “XIA’. I had the chance to watch this video only a few days ago after my internet connection was fixed (it was down for more than 2 weeks).

Just some comments on Junsu’s title song and music video:

TARANTALLEGRA is quite a catchy song that reminds me of Junsu’s songs Xiahtic and Intoxication. It’s evident that, like what he mentioned during his press conference, this is his style of music. I listened to it a couple of times and I must admit that the chorus really sticks to my mind for a while after listening to it, but I think I still like Xiahtic better. I’m not saying that TARANTALLEGRA is a bad song – I actually love the chorus – but I guess I still need to listen to it a couple of more times before I completely get used to it.

For the music video, all I can say is that it’s epic. And I mean it in both ways – good and bad. It’s epic in a good way because the effects were good and the editing is waaaaayyyy better than their Ayyy Girl music video. It actually looks like an MV that SME or other big companies would produce. In short, it’s at par with the quality of MVs that big companies make for their artist, which usually requires a lot of money to produce.

It’s also epic in a good way because of the dance parts, especially the dance intro. The choreography is superb – it is both fierce and sexy. Jeri Slaughter is really a great choreographer and I’m happy that our boys are working with him. We can clearly see in the MV how great of a dancer Junsu is. I’ve always been a fan of Junsu’s dancing. He’s been my favorite dancer in DBSK ever since I started to be their fan. There’s something about Junsu’s dancing that is so attractive, charming and amazing. I would love to see him dance this live. :)

As for the MV being epic in a bad way, well this is only my own opinion, but I really did not like some of Junsu’s styling in the MV. His shots with platinum blonde hair were ok but the ones where he has bangs and that one shot where he looked like a girl are quite awkward. Don’t get me wrong here. I love Junsu and I think he looked pretty on that one shot where he looked like a girl, but I’m not particularly thrilled to see him looking like a girl. I have a hard time seeing/imagining him look like a girl because I’ve always seen him as a handsome or sexy or cute guy. I can’t exactly explain why I don’t like it. I just don’t. It’s awkward.

Overall, the song is ok and the MV is good. This kind of music may not be the style of music I love to listen to but I think it’s a pretty good song and I might like it more once I get used to it. For the MV,  I love watching the dance parts but I’d probably skip the parts where I don’t like Junsu’s styling. :)

JYJ’s Jaejoong praised for his acting in ‘Time Slip Dr. Jin’

As episodes one and two of MBC‘s ‘Time Slip Dr. Jin‘ hit airwaves on May 26th and 27th, JYJ‘s Jaejoong is receiving much praise for his acting in the new historical drama.

Jaejoong has taken the role of a high Joseon military official who was born from a noble family and a fateful rival to Dr. Jin Hyuk (Song Seung Hun).

Although there were a few awkward moments as this is his first attempt at a historical drama, Jaejoong successfully portrayed his character Kim Kyung Tak. His transformation to a strict military official in the Joseon dynasty and his sageuk dialect has surely captivated the audience.

Jaejoong has also been receiving countless praises as he had perfectly expressed the pain of being born out of wedlock but showed his friendly, softer side towards his loved one.

In celebration of Jaejoong’s first historical drama, fans from Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong have put up a Twitter trend with the hashtag #JJinDrjin after the broadcast of episodes one and two. The hashtag reached the #1 spot for trending, proving that he’s one of the leading Hallyu stars of Asia.

Meanwhile, Jaejoong released “Living Like a Dream“, the soundtrack for the new drama, and has been receiving a lot of interest on music and portal sites.

120528 ‘Dr. Jin’ Kim Jaejoong, Warm Visual and Affectionate Acting Perfection

In the MBC weekend drama first aired on the 26th, ‘Dr. Jin’, Kim Jaejoong’s period drama transformation won enthusiastic responses from the viewers.

In ‘Dr. Jin’, Kim Jaejoong plays the role of Kim Kyung Tak, who possesses firm beliefs and strong mindset, using his charismatic period accent. Just like how the director praised on the press conference, Kim Jaejoong showed multiple aspect of Kim Kyung Tak’s character well in episode 1 and 2, such as the strictness of a cold officer and the warmheartedness of a fiancee. He used his eyes filled with rich emotions and expressed the complicated thoughts of Kim Kyung Tak, which really completed the drama.

From Jaejoong’s command of “who are you” towards Jin Hyuk in episode one, to the tension between the two during the beheading scene in episode two, he perfectly digested the old Korean enunciation and accent, and successfully showcased his period drama acting abilities. Furthermore, the pain of a unrecognized son and the gentleness of a loving fiancee captivated the hearts of countless female audience.

After the airing, the enthusiasm towards Jaejoong’s period drama transformation and his new charismatic character was vivid in comments of the broadcast company’s site and various forums. Both “Kim Jaejoong” and “Kim Kyung Tak” were at the top of the searches at all the main search engines. Viewers commented, “Where can I find an affectionate man like Kim Kyung Tak?”, “Men who are very hardworking are very handsome!”, “I really felt the pain of an unrecognized son, who couldn’t even call ‘father’”.

The popularity overseas is already beyond anything normal. After the airing of the first two episodes, the twitter trend list of areas including Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong all topped with #JJinDrjin, which proves that there were many fans who watched the drama steaming.

Furthermore, Kim Jaejoong’s participation in ‘Dr. Jin”s OST, “Living Like a Dream”, also created a huge discussion. As soon as the song was revealed last week, it was first place at Daum Music, Cy World, and after the airing of the episodes it became top search phrases at search engines such as melon, bugs, and ollehmusic.

When Junsu sang the encore song “Fallen Leaves”, he was moved to tears, and said, “I am happy to be able to begin the Asia Tour this way. To everyone who has given me your support you, I thank you from my heart.”

On 28 May, Junsu’s management agency said, “The first concert, which parks the start of the 60-day Asia Tour, ended successfully.

KBS2TV’s “The Equator Man” and MBC’s “The King2Hearts” as well as SBS’s “Rooftop Prince” started their broadcast on 21 May, and ended on 24 May.

The ratings war for these dramas were intense. Initially, it was “The King2Hearts”. This drama started off with a viewership of 16.2%, with “Rooftop Prince” at 9.8% and “The Equator Man” at 7.7% ratings.

However, after just 2 weeks, the ratings gap between the 3 stations’ dramas became a lot closer, and the battle intensified. On 5 April, the 6th episode of “Rooftop Prince” hit ratings of 12.5%, overtaking “The King2Hearts” which recorded 12.1% to take the top position. But due to the goverment elections, both “Rooftop Prince” and “The King2Hearts” delayed their broadcast, and with only “The Equator Man” airing, it recorded ratings of 14.3% and caught up with the others.

“The Equator Man” managed to maintain its top position, aside for the day after the elections (12 April) when it was beaten by “Rooftop Prince”, till the last episode, but “Rooftop Prince” managed a dramatic comeback and took over the no. 1 spot for this final episode.
