JYJ Junsu Talks about the Unfairness of Music Charts
With his Korean solo album release date approaching fast, JYJ’s Junsu recently encroached upon the topic of the unfairness of music charts.
On May 12, Junsu wrote to his fans on his Twitter, “You can stop streaming, or whatever it’s called. I am satisfied with being able to make good music, and sing good songs. And I am satisfied to have fans like you who will listen to that music. Fairness has been something long gone for us anyway. Even still, I will not become weary.”
On May 11, Junsu released song “I Don’t Like Love” from his solo album “Xia Tarantallegra” as an O.S.T. for the drama “Rooftop Prince,” in which fellow member Yoochun is taking part. Although the song reached number one on various charts immediately after it’s release, at the moment, “I Don’t Like Love” is outside in the twenties on Mnet and MelOn, and within the top ten on Olleh Music.
As a result, fans have raised questions regarding the fairness of music charts.
In related news, Junsu will be holding his first solo concert on May 19 and 20 at the Seoul Jamsil Indoor Stadium.
