[VIDEO+ TRAD] ENTREVISTA EXCLUSIVA DE KIM JAEJOONG PARA SINA

 

 

Algunos Q&A (traducido por RainbowKJJ)

SINA: Qué pensaba para el nuevo concepto del álbum? La elección del cabello rubio en la imagen teaser da una sensación de ángel.

JAE: Aporté muchas ideas para este concepto del álbum. Como la escena con la botella de la inyección, el color del pelo, tatuajes, etc. Quiero mostrar más libremente lados de mí que no he hecho antes.

SINA: Basado en el exclusivo estilo de rock de Kim Jaejoong, ¿qué canción le  recomendarías? ¿Cuál es tu canción favorita de las 13 canciones?

JAE: Me gustan todas las 13 canciones. Pero, como estoy escuchando a ellos, creo que todas las canciones son de diferentes géneros de rock. Por lo tanto, categorías en diferentes estilos basados ​​en mi propia preferencia. Para mí, sigue siendo las 4 canciones que están compuestas y escritas por mí mismo. «Butterfly» también es mi canción favorita. El siguiente es «Paradise».

SINA: «Just Another Girl» el MV tiene una sensación espeluznante. La sangre… escalofriante sonrisa… ¿Qué es lo que intenta expresar en el MV?

JAE: Este MV es diferente del anterior mini álbum  MV «Mine». La sensación es más fuerte.  La fuerte sensación pura del corazón, al igual que el amor. El tipo de ansiedad que sientes cuando estás enamorado de una persona. O la clase de corazón roto cuando rompieron. Perdiendo el control, gritar cuando se sienten realmente molestos y dolor. Todos ellos se habían expresado en el MV.

[VIDEO+ TRANS] Sina Ent Interview with Jaejoong

 

Some Q&A (Translated by RainbowKJJ)

SINA: Did u plan for the new album concept? The choice of blonde hair in the teaser image gives an angel feel.

JAE: I contributed lots of ideas for this albun concept. Like the scene with the injection bottle, the hair color, tattoos, etc. I want to show freely more sides of myself which I haven’t done so earlier.

SINA: Based on the unique Kim Jaejoong rock style, which song will you recommend? Which is your favourite song out of the 13 songs?

JAE: I like all 13 songs. But, as I’m listening to them, I feel that all songs are of different rock genres. So, (I) categories them under different styles based on my own preference. For myself, it is still the 4 songs that are composed and written by myself.《Butterfly》is also my favourite song. Next is《Paradise》

SINA: 《Just Another Girl》MV has a creepy feel. The blood…creepy smile… What is the MV trying to express?

JAE: This MV is different from previous mini album “Mine” MV. The feel is stronger. The pure strong feel of the heart, just like love. The kind of anxiety feel when you’re in love with a person. Or the kind of heart break when they broke off. Losing control, crying out loud when they really feel upset and pain. All these had been expressed in the MV

[NEWS] JYJ·Sol Gyeong Gu·Lee Jung Jae, ★All together… for C-JeS Workshop

The post-event account of JYJ member Kim Jun Su(27) on his agency C-JeS Entertainment’s workshop created buzz as he reveals the delightful conversation of those involved.

A C-JeS rep said in a phone call with <Sports Seoul> on the 29th, “because actor Choi Min Shik and singer Gummy joined recently, that has laid an occasion for everyone to get together for a meal. The weather is also nice now that it is autumn, let’s go see autumn leaves and off we went on an outing to Yang Pyeong villa.”

According to the rep, C-JeS Entertainment artists and staff left on the 28th for Yang Pyeong, Gyeonggi-do for the workshop. CEO Baek Chang Ju set the place. Choi Min Shik, Gummy, as well as Kim Jae Joong, Kim Jun Su, Kang Hye Jung, Sol Gyeong Gu etc. got together to enjoy a barbeque party. Except for Park Yoo Chun and Song Ji Hyo who were absent due to their schedule, everyone else spent the time together.

Kim Jun Su seems satisfied with the workshop on his twitter “C-JeS workshop just ended. Choi Min Shik sunbae-nim and Sol Gyeong Gu sunbae-nim, Lee Jung Jae sunbae-nim, Park Song Woong sunbae-nim, Kang Hye Jung noona and of course Jae Joong hyung and even Gummy noona who is new. Sol Gyeong Gu sunbae-nim said, ‘this C-JeS is a gathering place for pained souls.’ At those words that we are all in one pain, we laughed loudly and nodded in agreement. It was suggested that let’s change to be Recuperation Entertainment from today onward.” making fans laugh with his post-event account.

The agency rep elaborates on the enjoyable atmosphere “Eating from the same pot (being in the same agency) gave setting for really having a meal together. After a long day together, walking around at night, eating grilled meat, and playing the scissors-paper-stone game, they had a harmonious time with each other.”

JYJ, Sol Gyeong Gu, Choi Min Shik, Lee Jung Jae, Park Sung Woong, Kang Hye Jung, Song Ji Hyo, Park Yoo Hwan, Gummy, Jin Hyuk etc. are all part of C-JeS.

[ALBUM REVIEW] KpopStarz: Kim Jaejoong Is Back With “WWW”, An Emotionally Complex Album Reflecting His Musical Evolution

JYJ’S KIM JAEJOONG MAKES A TRIUMPHANT RETURN WITH “WWW”, AN ALBUM WHICH COULD REDEFINE K-POP.

 photo IE001637046_PHT.jpg

Kim Jaejoong is sexier and edgier than ever with “WWW”.

In many ways, WWW plays like a post break-up album. There is a sense of raw energy that is generally relegated to artists whom have undergone messy public split ups. In such cases, those who were once avid fans, either turn away from the performer or become more fervent in their support. The emotional angst contained within Kim Jaejoong’s solo release WWW is not only a testimony to his growth as an artist, but also reflects the aftermath of the transition from TVXQ front man to JYJ.

Prior to 2013, Kim Jaejoong was known as a pop artist who appeared to be in the midst of a musical identity crisis. While fellow JYJ member Junsu continued to embrace pop, hip-hop, and electronic music, Jaejoong exuded less confidence within the genres. As an artist who was no longer contained within a very formulaic system, Kim Jaejoong could either reinvent himself or flounder. In January 2013, Jaejoong firmly established that he would be making a strong return to music, however, it would be as a K-Rock performer. The release of “Mine” marked the return of the artist’s confidence and served as a catalyst for his artistic brilliance.

With the release of the 13 song album WWW, Jaejoong provides both audiences and the industry with a full album which could serve to revolutionize Korean pop music. K-Rock as a genre remains on the fringes of the Korean music market, with pop music dominating the charts. Outliers such as CNBlue, FTIsland, and Busker Busker maintain the ability to stay within popular culture, but often see more popularity amongst Japanese audiences. WWW could help to change that trend.

One of the standout gems within the album is the song “Paradise”, in which Jaejoong vocally endears himself to audiences with tender and sensual refrains. “Modem Beat” is a rowdy, rock anthem which serves in stark contrast to “Paradise,” but which establishes the instrumentals present throughout most of the album. “Shiny Day” which features Noel’s Lee Sang Gon plays like an original soundtrack song, so much so that the song would be perfect as the next music video release.

“Don’t Walk Away” which features rap vocals by BEAST’s Junhyung has classical instrumentals and an very upbeat tempo. In contrast, the guitar riffs and transitions on “Butterfly” help to solidify Jaejoong’s leap to rock star status. The same can also be said for “Just Another Girl” and “Light”, which are both incredibly engaging songs, in terms of the background instrumentals and Jaejoong’s vocals.

In addition to being a vocalist, Jaejoong is a composer and lyricist, which is strongly represented on WWW. Tracks like “Rottten Love” clearly reflect Jaejoong’s influence. Overall, WWW is worth both listening to and purchasing. The album reflects the culmination of Jaejoong’s struggle over the years to find himself in the world of K-Pop. After his journey, it is obvious that he is most comfortable not necessarily in the realm of strict K-Pop, but one that incorporates heavy rock influences and could become a genre onto itself.

[INTERVIEW] Daum Music: Kim Jaejoong’s WWW (Who, When, Why)

Q: Heard that the title of the album, ‘Who When Why’ is your idea. What does that mean? 
A: ‘Who, when and why’ are three words that always appear when love begins and ends. Among the 13 songs in this album, I’ve participated in the lyrics writing of 10 songs, expressing my beliefs in love. This is an album with love as the common theme and I want to use different types of music and voice to express what I think of love.

Q: After listening to the album, I found that there is not only rock, but pop punk, ballads, a variety of music genres. Let’s introduce the album. 
A: This album is mainly of rock music, including soft rock, hard rock, pop punk, ballads, music of different styles. It has rock songs with fast and strong tempo, rock songs which are more tailored to the general public’s taste, Brit-rock with slow tempo, and also songs towards the end of pop punk, folk and ballads. I’ve worked hard to present 13 songs which are all different and use different voice to sing each song. People would wonder if the songs are indeed sung by Kim Jae Joong after hearing them.

Q: The title song, ‘Just Another Girl’, is a song with fast tempo but the lyrics imply that the song is about a bad guy. You have personally written the lyrics so what do you mean by that? 
A: Yes, the lyrics of the title song, ‘Just Another Girl’, is written by me. It’s the last warning given to the woman who abandons and leaves me. It is about a man who believes the relationship between him and a woman is true love, yet is considered as easy love for the woman. The song describes a wounded man trying to step out of the pain for himself. He says to the woman who has had a change of heart, ‘You’re just another girl’, to express his anger towards her.

 photo IE001637046_PHT.jpg

Q: The photos for your album cover are really special. Your personal ideas are reflected through the photos so what do you want to express through the photos? 
A: Directly speaking, I want to break down ‘prejudice’, to escape from others’ prejudice on me and from the image I have had. I want to take challenge on new things, in other words, take risks. Being a person, he or she will have his or hers image. What I want to express is the feeling of freedom by getting rid of the stereotypical image of myself in others’ eyes. That’s why I have done everything I wanted to try. (For the photo shoots), I’ve drawn tattoo on my body, injected clocks into the intravenous drip, and presented images such as using a baseball bat to break all those biased views on me. As a whole, the expressions and the actions look natural and I’m very satisfied with these photos.

Q: Tell us some anecdotes of what happened during the photo shoot for this album. 
A: The last page of the album photos is a picture of my striking the wall with a baseball bat. I struck the wall with all my strength without knowing that the wall was so hard. Thus, my hands hurt but I felt happy and free of worries. The staff later told me because I was hitting the wall so hard, even those who just watched me felt their stress being released.

Q: I know you’re going to start your Asia Concert Tour on 2nd, 3rd of November. What kind of stage performances can we see in this Asia Tour? 
A: It’s a secret! The entire concert will consist of all my songs. There will be interactions and everyone’s stress will be released. It will be a concert filled with passion.

Q: Have you prepared anything special for the concerts? 
A: The things that I have prepared for my concerts are…practice and physical strength! I feel excited and nervous to meet you with a new album. Besides excitement, practice is the way to help smooth away my anxiety. I’d not forget to practice even having busy schedules. Physical strength as well! This time, I’d start from Seoul, to Japan and other Asian countries so having enough stamina is the most fundamental thing! I’d see you at the concerts in my best form!

Q: You’d be busier when you start your Asia Concert Tour. Is there anything you should never forget? 
A: When we tour around Asian countries, I’d need to learn their local languages! I’d like to learn more than simple greetings but sometimes, it’s not that easy. I feel really grateful and amazed when I see fans singing in Korean with me. I’d work hard on learning your languages to meet you there!

Q: Say something to the fans of Daum Music. 
A: Everyone, please turn up the volume when you listen to my songs. Relax and listen to the songs following the rhythm! It’s quite nice to turn up the volume and listen to very loud music in your bedroom.

Q: Lastly, please tell us what you want to express through this album?
A: If you ask me recently what I cherish the most, I am confident to say what I cherish the most is my album. I’m very satisfied with this album. As I have imagined, it has shattered the stereotypical images of how people have perceived me. [WWW] for me is an album full of happiness, courage and it has somewhat brought me consolation. I hope it’s an album that fills your heart for all of you.
