JYJ members Kim Jun-su and Kim Jae-joong will sing together for the first time in a while.
Palm Tree Island announced on Mar 30th that Kim Jun-su will participate in the theme song of the Japanese NTV Wednesday drama “You wicked woman, who said I wasn’t cool while working? (literal translation) scheduled to air in April?“
The Japanese drama is scheduled to premiere on April 13th. It is a work that tells the story of a positive and bright new employee and the mysterious senior struggling to get ahead.
Previously, this drama has received keen attention as it is a remake for a manga by Fukami Jun 30 years ago. The main character will be played by Mio Imada. In addition, with the appearance of well-known Japanese actors such as Noriko Eguchi, Nobuyuki Suzuki, Fumiya Takahashi, and Osamu Mukai, this drama is considered to be the most anticipated work in Japan in the second quarter of 2022.
The theme song “6th Magnitude Star,” (literal translation) sung by Kim Jun-su and Kim Jae-joong together, is said to be a ballad song featuring their luxury voices and harmony, pointing to the darkest star visible to the naked eye. It is expected to be a warm comforting song that conveys a message of support for hard-working people. Following the news of the duet with Kim Jae-joong, Kim Jun-su is also releasing a new song in Japan for the first time in a while, and many local fans are cheering for him.
Kim Jun-su said, “It’s been a really long time since I released a new song in Japan. Not just that, it’s also the theme of a popular drama. I am very excited, and most of all, I’m happy to sing with Jae-joong for the first time in a while,” he said.
“I remember having a lot of fun working with him as a duo, so I hope many people will happily listen to it. I think the song that I participated in this time is a really good song, please listen to it and give it much love. Thank you very much.”
Kim Jun-su and Kim Jae-joong debuted as TVXQ in 2003. After leaving their agency SM Entertainment in 2009, they moved to C-JES Entertainment and worked with Park Yoo-chun as members of the group JYJ. Currently, they are focusing on their personal activities such as solo singers and actors.
Kim Jun-su and Kim Jae-joong, who have gathered to sing an OST for the first time in a long while, appeared on the Japanese music program Premium Music 2022, which aired at 7 p.m. on the same day, and set up a stage together. This was also the first reveal of the new soundtrack. Expectations are already high for the two, who are scheduled to meet again for the first time in a long time before the official release of the song and show off their teamwork.
Kim Jun-su will meet fans through the musical “Death Note” to be held at the Chungmu Art Center Grand Theater from April 1.
