On October 19, prior to JYJ’s “Ichigo Ichie” Tokyo dome tour performance, the group held a press conference, where the members talked about their breaks prior to the tour, as well as how they would like their 30s and their futures to be.
Kim Junsu said, “During my break, I went to the U.S. and Thailand. It was a lot of fun and it was a chance for me to recharge a bit.” Kim Jaejoong said he worked out a bit. “I gained muscle and then lost muscle, and right now, I’ve lost some.” “I went grocery shopping with my mom, and then I just stayed home the whole time,” said Park Yoochun. “These days, going out feels like so much work, and staying at home is the most fun for me. I got to have a lot of family dinners and things that I didn’t really have time for back then.”
The group also looked forward into their 30s, and talked about what they would like their lives to look like when they get there.
“I’d just like to have a good appetite and be healthy. I’d like to be healthy and see my fellow members and our fans a lot,” said Park Yoochun.
Kim Jaejoong stated that he is a bit nervous about what will happen in his 30s. He continued, “As much as I’m able to laugh while looking back on my 20s, I’m curious what kind of unordinary things will happen in my 30s. I want to be healthy, too, and whatever happens, I just want to work it out.”
Kim Junsu agreed with his members, saying, “These really aren’t just empty words: I think health is the most important thing. I also don’t think doing successful promotions as a celebrity is the only way to be happy. Whether or not we continue as celebrities, I would like it if the three of us could get together and just talk over dinner or coffee whenever we want for the rest of our lives.”
JYJ is currently on their Japan dome tour “Ichigo Ichie.”
[NEWS] JYJ’s Kim Junsu Will Never Regret His Roller Coaster Life
JYJ shared thoughts on its roller coaster life.
JYJ launched the press conference prior to JYJ Japan Dome Tour Ichigo Ichie, which was held on November 19 in Tokyo Dome, and shared thoughts on life during 20’s.
Kim Junsu said, “It has been about 10 years since I debuted as TVXQ. Of course everyone goes through ups and downs but for the past ten years, we went through all sorts of emotions that people experience in their lifetime.”
Kim Junsu said, “I don’t know what will happen in the future but we experienced an extraordinary life in our 20’s, experiencing life that is both dazzling and tortuous.”
He added, “Even as we live our 50’s or 60’s, I will never be able to forget my current life in my 20’s. It was a time where I learned many things about life and it was 10 happy years that I will never regret.”
Meanwhile, this will be JYJ’s third dome concert, following Thanksgiving Live in Dome in 2010 and The Return of the JYJ last year.
It adds meaning since the group will begin official promotions in Japan after having gone through the period of not being able to promote freely in Japan.
Following the Tokyo Dome concert on November 18 and 19, which gathered 100,000 fans, JYJ will continue the dome tour in Osaka Dome on December 13 and 14 and Fukuoka Yahoo Dome on December 23 and 24. Through the tour titled ‘Ichigo Ichie,’ which means ‘a meeting that comes once in a lifetime,’ JYJ will be presenting upgraded performance and steady live stages.
