More Info on Jaejoong's Solo Album



JYJ’s Jae Joong will release the first solo material on January 17

JYJ’s Jae Joong has recently decided when to release his first solo material and is currently preparing for a concert.

On December 26, C-Jes Entertainment reported, “Jae Joong will release his first solo EP on January 17.”

The EP will mostly contain rock numbers and songs written by Jae Joong.

Jae Joong is also preparing a special concert in celebration of the release of the EP and his birthday. He will hold concerts on January 26 and 27 under the title of Your, My and Mine.

The agency reported, “The concert will be held on a large scale. The whole concert will be divided into three parts. It’s a distinctive type of concert that combines a concert and a fan meeting. The audience can see Jae Joong’s live performances for the tracks from the first EP. It will be the first time for Jae Joong to talk about his previous projects and life after the fan meetings in four Asian countries in November.”

The concerts will be held on January 26 and 27 at the Ilsan Kintex.

Art of Parties' Kim Bada writes Jaejoong a song



Kim Bada, the main vocal of Rock band ‘Art of Parties’, gave his song to another singer for the first time.

It’s Kim Jaejoong, the member of JYJ, who will make his debut next January as a solo singer, He told about it..

“I think he asked me a song for his change. Actually, I didn´t know who Kim Jaejoong is.
But I gave my song because he wanted”.

And he emphasized,

“He is the first singer who ask me a song. I give my song to everyone if he or she wants”.

Kim YoonBum, drummer of ‘Arts of Parties’ told about… “He was never expressed about it, but he likes the collaboration”.
Kim Bada gave two songs to Kim Jaejoong. He told with anticipation…

“He asked me just one but he wanted one more song after recording. I think you can meet ‘New’ Kim Jaejoong who is musically more mature”.

He praised the tense of Jaejoong’s digesting rock music…

“He was exceptional..
I was half a doubt about him because I didn’t know about him.
He was much better than expected after we recorded the 1st song.
He has the attribute to become a rocker.
After recording of 1st song, I gave him a hard-rock song, a little bit stronger than 1st one…
but he didn’t reject it. He also digested it well as the compositional intention”

And he added..

“Rock Band ‘Pia’ also joined in one or two songs as the accompanist. He really make his effort for his 1st solo album”.

There will be various rock songs in his 1st solo album. C-JES Entertainment also told…

“It’ll be different from JYJ’s music. You can feel another attraction of Kim Jaejoong”.

**For reference, Kim Bada is the main vocalist of ‘Sinawe’ and ‘Art of Parties’
Pia is very famous rock band in Korea. Actually they became famous because Seo Taiji scouted them to his own label.
Now they belong to another label, not Seo Taiji’s.

The article from dkpopnews isn't the smoothest English so apologies if it's confusing! Does anyone here listen to that band they mentioned, Pia? Are they good? Kim Sung Gyu from Infinite mentioned them too when he was talking about bands he likes.

I'm not a fan of rock songs in general. I hope I'll like his album.
itskimbitches 26th-Dec-2012 04:47 am (UTC)
his basic ass needs to reinvent itself.
suhbangshinki 26th-Dec-2012 04:56 am (UTC)

I can't wait ASDFGHJKL; and I hope that he goes on a World Tour and comes to the UK (preferably Scotland xD)
soft_daisy 26th-Dec-2012 05:48 am (UTC)
Looking forward to it. I'm not sure if I like rock songs all that much, but it'll be nice to hear him sing powerful songs again ^^

OP can type 피아 on youtube search box for Pia's music. I have to say Jejung is working with the right people for this rock EP, I'm impressed.

purekpopology 26th-Dec-2012 07:13 am (UTC)
Thanks for the Korean! After listening to some Pia on youtube I'm veeeeery interested to know what the songs they played for Jaejoong sound like. I have a feeling everything about this album is going to be fresh and amazing.
chloe1910 26th-Dec-2012 06:55 am (UTC)
Concerts!! Good fro Jaejoong and korean fans! So envious though.
liaison_alley 26th-Dec-2012 07:40 am (UTC)
CJES just posted the first teaser. A couple clips of him recording. Don't know if anyone will make a post for it.
In any case, I am so excite!!!

hai_no_souretsu 26th-Dec-2012 07:54 am (UTC)
I'm excited for his album, but also I desperately want to show middle finger to whoever in CJeS is responsible for concert planning. How international fans could book plane tickets and get korean visa in such little amount of time?

I hope that JYJ vs. Avex trial would end in January, and Jaejoong would have concert in Japan next year. If that - I'd be going for sure.
soft_daisy 26th-Dec-2012 08:05 am (UTC)
yep, it's difficult, but for japanese fans, it's probably a little easier. for other international fans, we can't even get tickets because we don't have a korean social security number and they don't have other ways for non-japanese international fans to purchase the tickets.

i'm sure they will find a way to hold a concert in japan though, so i hope you get to see jaejoong soon even if you have to miss the upcoming concert
hai_no_souretsu 26th-Dec-2012 08:41 am (UTC)
For Japanese fans it'll be much simpler of course, like it was with drama fanmeetings, and also JYJ have a japanese fc with paid membership, so maybe there would be some kind of ticket lottery as Avex usually do with Tohoshinki's concerts. But I live in Europe and even if I'd managed to get concert ticket through acquitances in Korea or through japanese fc membership, there're New Year Holidays in my country up to Jan.9th. It's impossible to get Korean visa in such little amount of time. (((

I hope so too, though it could be hard - I'm already planning trip to Japan to Tohoshinki's Dome Tour and if they'll release japanese album this year, then I'll go there again for next tour also. And if Jaejoong's gonna have concert in Japan too... I don't think I could afford 3 trips there in a year.

My ultimate bias making my favorite genre of music. So happy right now. :)

I love rock. I love Jaejoong. I can't wait!
seung_is_my_ho 26th-Dec-2012 11:59 pm (UTC)
Art of Parties and Pia collab with Jae?? I really really hope this works, because it sounds epic. ^^
