"""The hard work we put in to be the best in what we do have so far been rewarding. There are of course times where that is not the case. However with the strength from our love of music, the constant support of fans, family and friends, we are able to overcome any hardships. We believe that the hardships we experience help us to persevere and ultimately mold our characters to be more mature. As we mature as individuals, our music will also mature, and as our music matures, we hope that it can bring hope and strength to others.""
That is the philosophy of JYJ, comprised of three members from South Korea: Kim Jaejung, Park Yuchun and Kim Junsu. JYJ is releasing its new global debut album The Beginning on October 12. The title of the album is synonymous with their journey to date and marks a first for the group to release an English language album.
JYJ was originally from the boy band TVXQ, and Tohoshinki which was formed in 2003 in Korea. JYJ is arguably the biggest boy band Internationally, evidenced by the trio making it into the Guinness Book Records in 2008 and 2009 for having the World’s Largest Official Fan Club at over 800,000 members in Seoul alone and being The Most Photographed Celebrities in the World shot an estimated 500 million times in magazines, albums jackets, and commercials from the time of their debut in 2003 to May 19, 2009 with their former group.
JYJ has teamed up with A-list US producers Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins for The Beginning JYJ’s musical style consists of many genres such as pop, R&B and dance; they are also known for singing a cappella.
About working with such luminaries as West and Jerkins, JYJ says, “It was a great new experience that we are really privileged to have. We felt the pressure of working with such superstars initially, but our anxieties were allayed when Kanye/Rodney showed us great support. We were able to have a really good time working with them and exchanging ideas about music with one another.”
JYJ has just recently started writing songs in English, which is not their first language. According to Kim Jaejung, “There is pressure as we are not native English speakers, but we are not daunted by it. We hope our music can cut across the language barrier and still deliver our message.” Adds Park Yuchun, I think it is liberating to be able to express our music in English, if it is acceptable to our fans. I hope this will help bring our music to more people around the world and bring us closer to those who like our music.”
“Being able to perform in a more widely known language is really wonderful as we are now able to reach out and connect with more fans with my music,” says Kim Junsu. “There is also a deeper connection with existing English speaking fans that are familiar with our Korean and Japanese music.”
To those who have not yet heard JYJ? “Prepare to be surprised,” advises JYJ. “Just relax and leave any pre-conceived ideas about Korean artistes/Asian pop aside and listen to us with an open heart.”"
