JYJ’s Kim Junsu was chosen as the idol with the strongest ticket power for three years in a row.
The August 8 broadcast of OBS’ Unique Entertainment News lined up idols from no. 1 to 5 under the theme, ‘2012’s powerful musical idols’. The rank showed, in order, JYJ’s Kim Junsu for Elisabeth, Super Junior’s Sungmin for Jack the Ripper, B2ST’s Jang Hyun Seung for Mozart!, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun for Catch Me If You Can and 2AM’s Chang Min for La Cage Aux Folles as the idols that sold the most tickets for their musicals.
Kim Junsu, shining proud at no. 1, won two rookie awards with his musical debut in 2009. His debut piece Mozart! sold out the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, and his second piece Tears of Heaven also sold out 17 performances out of its total of 20.
For his third piece, Elisabeth, in which he acted as the otherworldly character Tod, all 32 of the performances were sold out just 10 minutes after their tickets were made available for sale. In the meantime, with every performance, he grew little by little as his own brand, recognized for his acting and explosive vocals.
He also won the Most Popular Star Award three years in a row at the 6th Musical Awards held in June.

Hmmm Sungmin was the one that dished Junsu on twitter right? I’m glad Junsu still on top then!!
Long long time ago, when Jun Su and the boys just left you-know-what, Jun Su wrote something regarding you-know-who (not the CEO) on twitter. It had nothing to do with Silly Sung Min, but he, Stupid Shin Dong and Bitchy Boa bashed him on twitter. Make me hate them three.
Yeah…and now I can’t watch them three without feeling hurt for Junsu…
yeeeyyyyyyy…great job xiah!!!…we already knew how tallented you are…so this isn’t something new…it’s just another prize which reward your hard work, determination, kindness and…again..your heavenly tallent!!!!…go go go jyj!!!
that’s our junsu..
so proud of him,,
but sometime, i wish he acts on drama like jaejoong and yoochun did… so i can see his acting,,
coz it’s hard for me who living outside korea to see junsu perfomance in musical,,
oh, for me, i kinda wish he focus on musical only for something outside music. performing musical and acting on drama is too different. i dont think he’s ready for dramas yet. hm..he did say when he’s ready and a good opportunity comes he will ^^ i hope he will choose well when the time comes ^^
ha..ha..Junsu is the lucky one, he has NOT YET SLAPPED by actresses or beaten up by co-players , Jaejoong and Yoochun both have been slapped VERY hard on faces ALMOST in every TV dramas 😀 throw into water, muddy area…..beaten up by co-players etc….
Scripts writers tear away halo of God of the East, wow…
Ahha! Never been slapped, but beaten up? Yes. He’d been kicked in the back in Mozart, sprawling on the floor. pretty hard too.
WELL *puffing out my chest, head held high* WELL, OF COURSE!

Managed to make Sylvester Levay:
– wrote a song for him (I vaguely remember Mr.Levay said that the song for Junsu, “I Think of You” took him 3mths to finish?)
– came to do a musical concert under his and Junsu’s name, and
– managed to make Mr.Levay delayed his flight to watch JS’s Elisabeth and said that JS’s performance was perfect and satisfying.
forever a proud fan
“B2ST’s Jang Hyun Seung for Mozart!”
Mozart! I missed it. Someone mixed the song “I am I am Music” by both Junsu and Hyun. Check it out:
Ummm…Nothing against Hyun, who has a pretty nice voice, but Junsu’s voice out-powers his very, very easily.
this man belongs on a stage, he was born for this !
i’m a proud jyj-citizen
Hope overseas event organizers aware of Junsu’s blessing, cheers!
More live performance for him pls.
junsuuuuuu !!!!!!! congratulations!! =D
A very deserving spot!
