Interview with idol representatives of “composer-idols”… “the salary is a secret…shall we compose together?”
“My stylist dressed me younger-looking today. In case I looked older than these guys….”(Kim Jaejoong)
JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong (28) casually walked into the photo shoot complaining. Younger BEAST’s Yong Junhyung and Block B’s Zico smiled awkwardly saying, “We don’t have young looking face though…”
The image of the three of them standing together made them look like a team for sure.
“Since we have one vocal singer and two rappers, we can make a team. Jaejoong, Yong Junhyung, Jiho (Zico’s real name) initials together make JYJ. Hahaha.”
The similarity between them is the fact that they are “idol singers with composing abilities.” They don’t get their name placed in the album credits just by muttering the melody, but they are Korean music industry’s “copyright idols” who can easily compose-write-edit music for their own albums and even give songs to other artists.
