It has been reported that JYJ’s Junsu ended up shedding a few tears during his first music show appearance on Korean television in six years.
On April 13, Junsu took part in the recording for EBS’ music program “Space Sympathy.” During his final encore stage with the song “Uphill” (by Jung In and Yoon Jong Shin) filming was briefly paused because the singer was unable to hold back his tears. His fans, who looked on from the audience, also burst into tears upon seeing Junsu cry. After collecting himself, the singer carried on with the last song and successfully wrapped up the recording.
Before starting the last song, Junsu expressed, “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.”
After staying quiet for a moment, Junsu 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.”
Following the filming, the JYJ member left a message to fans on his personal Twitter account: “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.”
EBS’ “Space Sympathy” featuring Junsu is scheduled to air on April 30 at 12:10 a.m. (KST).
