The day has finally come. JYJ’s member Junsu appeared on the first music show ever after six years since the members of JYJ left SM Entertainment and got banned from every national broadcast.
This is really historic day for all members of JYJ and those who still support OT5. On April 13th Junsu took part in recording for EBS‘ music program “Space Sympathy”. During his final encore stage with the song “Uphill”, originally sung by Jung In and Yoon Jongshin, the singer couldn’t help but feel emotional and cry, resulting the short break from the filming.
Not only that, but his fans also, who waited so long to see him again on the stage on national television, burst into tears seeing him cry. After a while, he managed to put himself together and finish the recording.
Just before he sung his last song he stated following;“As a singer, it was honestly hard not being able to appear on broadcast for six years. It was a challenge and also took a lot of courage on my part as well as our agency’s part to release an official album in the midst of it all. It’s because of all the fans who stuck it out that I was able to release an album and perform and get to this place today.”
Then he stood quietly for a moment and continued; “It was really quite difficult. I think this moment today will become a time that I won’t be able to forget. I will sing this song thinking of the road that all of you walked with me, one step at a time, overcoming so many changes and finally standing on this stage.”
Junsu expressed his gratitude to his fans with a heartwarming message on his twitter account saying; “To the fans who laughed and cried with me on this day for the music show recording after six years..and to all the fans who weren’t able to come but waited for this news..I sincerely thank you for walking together, one step at a time, until today. Although it wasn’t an easy uphill road, it was possible because of one another. I love you.”
This is so sad, a singer who was forbidden to appear on music shows, nobody can even understand how he felt all these years, but at the end the justice prevailed. Times change and so should kpop and the companies that are in charge of everything!
