“We love you, don’t go!”
The 4,000 fans filling the concert venue shouted, “We love you, don’t go!” in Korean as they expressed their regret of having to let JYJ’s Junsu, who had just wowed them with a perfect 120 minute performance, go. On the 28th at 7:30pm, Junsu held the second concert of his Asia Tour at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China. With the title ‘XIA 2ND ASIA TOUR CONCERT INCREDIBLE IN Shanghai’, the concert was the second leg of his Asia tour following Bangkok, Thailand on the 20th.
Opening the concert with the intense dance track ‘TARANTALLEGRA’, Junsu’s perfect performance and live singing skills had his Chinese fans captivated from the very start. He had his fans screaming when he took on the persona of a man in love as he sang ‘I’m Confessing Right Now’ and ‘Chocolate Girl’.
When Junsu performed ballads and OSTs, his Chinese fans waved their red fanlights from side to side to make a red sea of waves, and when he finished off with ’11 o’clock’, they shouted, “We love you, don’t go!” When Junsu began the performance for his title song ‘Incredible’, everyone got up and started chanting his name. When he began dancing a part of the choreography that the fans could follow along to, all 4,000 put their hands in the air and danced along. During his encore performance of ‘Fever’, Junsu still looked extremely energetic as he captivated his fans with a passionate performance.
To his fans who had cheered the singer on for two non-stop hours, Junsu said, “Thank you so much for staying with me from beginning to end with such passion.” He also stated, “I would like to send my deepest condolences to the victims and families of those affected by the flooding in the Southern region. I pray that there are no more casualties.” His deep consideration was met by louder applause and cheer from his fans.
After the concert, a fan (Jinjing, 24, Female)told eNEWS through C-JeS Entertainment, “It was a riveting performance from beginning to end. I was able to focus on each stage more because of the concert’s storytelling aspect,” and “I loved seeing Junsu singing all songs, whether it was a love song or a sad song, with all the emotions he could pour into them. I couldn’t stop cheering for him.” The agency stated that many other fans also expressed their happiness and content.
Meanwhile, Junsu will be making the third stop of his Asia tour in Seoul on the 3rd and 4th of August.
