[NEWS] 120217 JYJ’s Kim Junsu, Why Did He Loose 6kgs When he was Already Thin?


JYJ member Kim Junsu recently went on an extreme diet which caused him to loose 6kgs and amaze everyone around him with his changed appearance.

JYJ’s official agency, C-JeS Entertainment, met with reporters and stated “As of late, Kim Junsu has lost 6kgs. His change after loosing the weight is so great that his face looks quite different and even those around him can barely recognize him”

In fact, after loosing the 6kgs, Kim Junsu’s agility has increased and his features such as his chin and jawline have become more prominent, giving him the look of a totally different person. It is a great change from the cute image that Kim Junsu was known for before.

Even though a person such as him did not have any weight to loose, Kim Junsu decided to go on a chicken breast diet because of his starring role in the musical ‘Elisabeth’. In the musical, his character often wears revealing sheer clothes, so he chose to loose weight and sculpt his body in order to show his fans a more handsome side of Kim Junsu.

[TRANS] 120210 After ‘Mozart!’ and ‘Tears of Heaven’, appearance in ‘Elisabeth’

JYJ’s Kim Junsu may not be unfamiliar to you, but he has a new title – musical actor Kim Junsu. It has been 2 years since his debut in ‘Mozart!’. When news of his debut in ‘Mozart’ broke, we thought that he was just venturing into another field, but he went on to act in ‘Tears of Heaven’ and ‘Elisabeth’ and became one of the leading respectable musical actors with star quality. Days before the premiere of ‘Elisabeth’, we met up with a passionate Kim Junsu.


To Kim Junsu, his debut in the musical “Mozart!” was a risky challenge. While experiencing strife with his management company in 2009, he chose the musical ‘Mozart!’ as his first step after eight months of vacuum. He had never been interested in musicals. “In the end, the first musical I saw was the musical that I would act in,”he laughs. But, he emphasized: “If I were to count my biggest challenge in life, it would be acting in musicals.”  Continue reading

‘Some of men’s restroom doorplates were changed due to lack of women’s restrooms’

Kim Junsu, who gathers female fans like clouds for each musical performance, even changed restrooms of the theater.

As the ladies rooms of the Theater Bluesquare in Seoul reached the staturation point by female audience
during the intermission of the Musical ‘Elisabeth’, in which Kim Junsu acts as ‘Tod’, on last 15th, the Theater opened men’s restrooms on the first basement level (the first floor of the auditorium) to women. The resident manager of the theatre asked the male audience, who got restrained from entring the restroom, to “understand the situation as Kim Junsu appears in today’s performance.”

Although the Theater, which opened in last Novemeber, had realized there is a large number of female audience during domestic musical performences and increased capaity of women’s restrooms, it was not enough for Kim Junsu’s performance. The capacity of women’s restrooms of this theater has the highest standard in Korea with the rate of 25.9 seats per 1 female toilet while Charlotte Theater in Jamsil, Seoul has the rate of 33.5 seats per 1 female toilet.

This ‘plight’ had occurred because all the tickets of Kim Junsu’s performances were sold out and most of them were females. Interpark, the site for purchasing tickets, stated that the rate of female purchasers of Kim Junsu’s ‘Elisabeth’ shows has exceeded little over 99%, and it is unapralleled in history of musical in larger theater in Korea even if female purchaser would take males to the performance.
