On May 31, XIA (Junsu) held a livestream through Naver V App talking about his latest album “Xignature,” and its title song, “Rock Your World.”
During the show, he’s asked by one of the viewers if there are any juniors in the industry he’s fond of.
After contemplating, he replies, “Truthfully, there’s so many idols these days I don’t really know a lot of people personally. I might know their group’s name, but not individual names. If I had to choose, I would say the BEAST and INFINITE members. These days, it’s nice to see that idols really passionate about what they do, and how they can sing and dance really well. But of course, I’m closer to those I interact with and know personally. That’s why I am fond of BEAST and INFINITE.”
He also adds BTOB left a big impression on him as well, since they always greet him well. Junsu explains how he was especially touched how BTOB’s Yook Sungjae once was sleeping at the salon, but woke up to just to greet him. Because he knows what that lifestyle is like and how tired the younger idol must have been, Junsu feels that Yook Sungjae, and all the the BTOB members are really kind.
