I attended JYJ Thanksgiving Live @ Tokyo Dome on both days. IMO, today, their live was full of lovely smiles, jokes, laughs. Personally, I think their performance today was so much stronger and better. Yesterday, I felt some void, loneliness and sadness. Today, I love every emotion they put in the concert. The crowd were also amazing. I dare say that they fully conquered the stage with their voice and their energy.
I would write more detail about it but I have a plane to catch tomorrow…in short, Junsu was perfect as always. He was so sexy and charismatic …finally LOL. Congratulation to Jun-chan XD! Fans kept screaming on every sexy post during Xiahtic and Intoxication performance. He sang both solo songs for BeeTV soundtrack beautifully. You’ve got charismatic XIAH Junsu during the performance and then you’ve got Jun-chan in ment part…he is just amazing.
Yoochun was a lot better than on Saturday. (I’m not sure whether it’s also because of my position in Dome on Saturday that make me hardly able to here his voice when he sang low note and most of Tokyo Lovelight.) On Sunday, I can hear his voice so much more clearly. I love his rap in Shelter. On Saturday, I still thought that this song live could not match the CD version but I changed my mind after Sunday live. Yoochun rapped aggressively and painfully while Jaejoong adlib was far more better than the CD one. I love the bridge part and when they sang high note together, it pierced and stuck in my heart.
And today, Jaejoong was also on high. He smiled, played with camera for several times sang lots of adlib. Maze was so much better than in the fancam, with all special effects. His voice is stronger than ever. He totally rocked the entire dome with this song. (Actually, with every songs LOL.)
Thanks for a japanese fan who sat next to me during the concert, I was able to understand some parts that Jaejoong said before he sang W. (She just summarized for me so it’s not really word-by-word.)
Jaejoong said that on the 1st day at Osaka, when he was crying, he saw lots of fans also cried with him. So he felt that it’s not good for all of them. Therefore, he tried so hard to smile, smile and smile, to make the audience enjoy their concert from there on.
However, at the end, after they sang W, three of them said thank you to all the fans again. Then, Jaejoong was the 1st one who walked out of the stage quickly. That’s when everyone felt something was not really…right. Yes, even though he showed us tons of smiles today, he couldn’t hold his true emotion anymore. There was a camera on the floor before they walked back to the backstage. His face was captured by that camera. He was running, trying to hide his tears with his hand…but…he was crying so damn hard. Everyone could see that he tried to keep his insecurity, overwhelming feeling, whatever he felt inside through the entire concert…and he just could not do that anymore. I think Junsu and Yoochun did also have teary eyes but it’s not that clear.
After attend this concert, I would like to say that, all of them are moving on. It might be hard for some fans to accept that there would not be 5 of them singing together, at least within 2-3 years. You might want to wait for their reunion. (Yes, I am waiting too.) However, the fact that they are moving on and trying so hard to continue their lives and persue their dreams is the reality that we have to face with right now. Their decisions might not be the same. They might be on the different path. We don’t know what happens behind the scene but I dare say that the pain of us cannot compare with the pain of them. I won’t blame anyone if they don’t want to support solo, duo, trio. Now, they have to be in the entertainment industry with their ability more than anything else. So, it’s time for you to decide whether you want to support them. That’s it.
P.S. Sorry for my poor English. It’s not my 1st language.
