สัมภาษณ์โคตรยาวของจุน ใครจะแปลมั้ยเนี่ย ฮิยะๆๆ
[Trans] 100606 Nikkei Entertainment July Issue JunSus Part
-Even so, I, will still sing.-
As a THSK member, he has already spent five and a half years developing in Japan. JunSu, a member of the five-men group, began his solo activities using his full name on the 26th of May. This is an interview which will let you see his determination.
Vocal talents, ability to dance, good looks, these are some of the essential elements a South Korean boy band must possess, and to date, [these boy bands] have thrown the world into a unprecedented state of chaos. Without a doubt, JunSu is one of those causing this state of chaos.
Having a quality that no one else is able to imitate, he is thus able to gather the attention of the audience and put up performances that have been affirmed by thousands of people. The voice, which is a singers life-line, is an unsurpassed talent which he possesses.
Having gone through a difficult period when his voice was changing, the voice that emerged thereafter, if we were to describe it, it would be a hoarse yet high tone. Fully displaying the limits of a natural voice, it has performed numerous beautiful melodies thus far. Within the list of songs the group has sung, the thrilling treble parts has been covered by this person many times.
This May, this person who possess such a voice, XIAH junsu, will be releasing a new solo work. His thoughts regarding the groups future direction and his own cannot be fully comprehended through these songs alone. Let us try to step in and see what all it is about.
Men, while they cannot not appear strong, there are also times when they want to show the fragile side of themselves. This is exactly how I want to present myself, so I tried two songs which has completely different styles.
The first track is the self-composed <<Intoxication>>. There is an underlying meaning of indulgence and yearning in this track, and its a sexy R&B style track which sings about the basic instinct that cannot be suppressed. As this is a dance track, there is this cold suppression of the melody, and from within it highlights the hidden strength of a man.
The staff said, this is a track that has the same intense feeling as the previous work <<Xiahtic>>. Even so, I still wanted to try to change the entire atmosphere. After having decided on my solo activities, I wanted to present a more truthful side of myself. I want to present myself that can dance and sing live at the same time. In this track, I have placed in more emphasis on the R&B style, which is a style I personally like a lot. Most of the lyrics are English (it takes up about 80% of the entire song), and this is so that the overall effect of Western-style music is not undermined. This song required a lot of different means to keep the balance.
The second and third tracks (normal edition) is a collection of the traditional ballads. Both are focused towards the theme song of BeeTVs television drama for mobile phones. One of the tracks is performed for the romance story in which fellow member YuChun is acting in. The other song << Kanashimi No Yukue>> is the theme song. The theme, which was somewhat deep and profound, was very quite interesting. I asked myself this time, what is the significance behind the expression of this song.
Even though this song is not self-composed, I chose it from amongst 20-30 other compositions. As to why it was chosen, one of the main reason was, it is quite a simple reason to me, throughout the entire song, from the start to the end, it is not purely about plain repetition of the melody and harmony, and it is not just about a single voice singing. To be able to put in ones real feelings into the song, this was the part that suited me most. The lyrics are also very moving. In the later part of the song, where this is the line Compared to the conclusion of happiness, changes have made me feel lonelier, it touched me deeply.
- Even if I am unhappy, I will suppress it-
As a singer, I like this type of songs a lot.
To be able to express the song more vividly, I would think that the total absence of a single piano or guitar would be even better. That was the effect I was listening out for this time. Therefore, I chose this song. Even though it is sad, it also merged in the sorrowful emotions that have been suppressed.
In his life as an artiste, the words strength and sorrow has memories attached to it. Especially now when he possesses the voice that everyone wants to hear, the issue of the long period when his voice underwent changes is also very well-known among fans. It is not enough to use the term distressed to describe it, and as JunSu would say, That was a total despair.
From the age of 15, it continued all the way throughout his second year in high school to the third. Even though the doctor said that the duration for the voice change has ended, there was still no improvement, and the hope of being able to sing seemed far away. Just trying to reach the higher pitches would make him exhausted and unable to produce any sound. While he had the desire to sing happily, gradually, however, he was unable to project any voice out. The doctor said, You probably cannot sing anymore, stop singing, and upon listening to such words, he would cry every night.
The trend of debuting at 17 years old is still ongoing in South Korea. The younger generation has always been made fun of numerous times while at work.
I totally do not touch cigarettes or alcohol, and people usually ask, Is it because you have a low tolerance of alcohol? I would be quite sad to hear this and think, so this is what you think of me, and there are times when I did not even want to explain myself. There were also people who said, Can you sing with such a voice? However, after they heard me sing, they would be very surprised and say, You can actually sing.
Generally, it is heard that most successful artistes would have had, at some time, gone through a period with memories of humiliation.
This will then become a source of motivation for them.
As for JunSu, he probably had such thinking, but after asking him, he said, I dont think I have had such hateful experiences. Because I have confidence in my singing. Immediately, he revealed a dashing smile. To this person, confidence has already gotten victory over any hate and hurt, and that is probably why he is easier to understand.
After chatting so much, he was asked about his recording session at a radio programme and it was really bad (laughs).
However, his desire to stand on stage and sing became more intense.
During that period, he received a lot of letters from fans saying, I like your voice, and this has given him more confidence.
He commented, See, its not that bad.
During the period of the voice change, perhaps his efforts to force out sounds were not good for his throat.
This was also probably why, my voice became, how do you say this, a bit weird, but it also made me unique. As I kept thinking like that, my voice gradually stabilized, and to me, it was nothing short of a miracle.
Regarding singing, two years before, he was invited to a programme.
And that was in the year 2008, and that was his first time performing on Kōhaku Uta Gassen.
