The Reason Kim Junsu Came on the Stage with His Mother

The young son asked his mother with limpid eyes after singing with his mother.

“Mom, you sing so well. Why didn’t you become a singer?”

His mother smiled and answered to his unexpected question.

“I dreamed of being a singer once, but your grandfather was opposed to it so much…”

The boy promised to his mother who smiled, but slurred her words at the end. “Mom! I’ll be successful and achieve your dreams for you. I promise.” About 10 years since this promise, she received a phone call from her son at the end of the year.

“Mom, won’t you sing a song with me at my concert?” At first when she heard his son’s words over the phone, she thought he was joking. Her son continued to talk.

“Mom, do you remember? The promise I made you to sing with you on the stage when I become a successful singer. I will be really happy if you would be a guest for my concert.” Her son’s voice was a little bit shaky. But she shook her head at the unexpected suggestion.

“I know what you mean, but you know I can’t sing well as I once could. Don’t you know that better than I do? I’m thankful and happy just at the fact you remembered the promise you made such a long time ago that I’d forgotten about.” But her son was stubborn. She asked him over and over.

“Won’t I ruin your concert? It’s true that I dreamed of being a singer, but I’ve never been on stage before…”

“Don’t worry. You can do better than me. I want to make your dream come true.”

January 1st 12am, 2013.

K-pop star Kim Junsu(XIA)’s solo concert was at the peak at COEX Hall D, Samsung-dong, Seoul. 7000 fans filling in the venue with red lights made their wishes for the new year, wished luck and blessings.

Kim Junsu took a sip of water on the stage.

“I am about to achieve my dream right here today. It is both my dream since my childhood and hers too. My dream is finally coming true today. She probably will be shaking with anxiety behind the stage. Please give her a round of applause and loud cheers.”

The audience began to stir. Curiosity was aroused about who he is introducing. Everyone thought a surprise guest would appear on the stage like any other concerts. ‘Dream of Goose’ started to flow with the sound of the piano.

At that time an unfamiliar middle-aged woman entered the stage with a microphone. The woman standing in the spotlight was Kim Junsu’s mother Yoon Youngmi-ssi. It was a surprising guest, against everyone’s expectation. The mother and the son sang ‘Dream of Goose’ passionately while holding hands. The son beat time with his hands for his nervous mother.

When the song was over, Yoon-ssi shed tears and said, “I’m so thankful to my son who kept the promise he made when he was a child and made my dream true.” The son hugged her without saying anything. Then he escorted his mother backstage.

The son had treasured his ‘mother’s dream’ that she had to give up due to her family’s opposition in his heart. He wanted to give back her ‘lost dream’ as his concert.

So he chose ‘Dream of Goose’ to sing. To deliver a hopeful message to his fans that even a ragged, abandoned dream can cross the wall and soar high into the sky. That even the heavy world will never be able to tie you down. To imagine smiling together at the end of life.

It seemed that their heart touched the audience. One by one, the audience that has been watching the stage started to wipe their tears. All fans said “It was the most beautiful and touching stage in this concert,” and continued, “They embraced the venue warmly with that one song.”

Fans also said, “Their vocals weren’t just technically excellent. Their voices and emotions go so well together, so their chord and tone were in harmony.” More than anything, it was touching to hear a fan saying “Watching the performance, it made me think back what my parent’s wish is and what did I do to achieve it.”

Kim Junsu’s ‘Ballad&Musical Concert’ that was held from December 29th to 31th at COEX, Seoul had a story of the stages he had dreamt of in his childhood and meeting himself who achieved his dreams. However, to Kim Junsu, it was a meaningful concert because not only his dream was achieved, but he also kept the promise he made to his mother when he was a child and helped her mother’s dream to come true. As fans’ dreams were also painted over, they made the best harmony on earth.

Watching his mother’s dream come true while Junsu watched his mother keeping her own dreams in her heart and working hard only for her son’s success. Maybe this was Kim Junsu’s dream too. A beautiful fairy tale-like story of a successful son achieving his mother’s dream became a reality at the very first moment of the first day of 2013, on Kim Junsu’s stage.

Stardom Ent. Denies Block B′s Claims Regarding Its Contract

After it was reported that Block B filed for a cancellation of its contract with Stardom Entertainment, the agency has stepped forth to deny the claims made by the group and explain its circumstances.

According to the petition from Block B, Stardom Entertainment did not provide the balanced profit it promised to pay every month on the 25th for about a year from April 2011. It added that the group had never been paid for its OST and fanclub activities, and that the agency′s head had disappeared after receiving 70 million won from the members′ parents.

Stardom Entertainment issued an official press release on January 4, denying the accusations.About the failure to pay the group, it started, “They were paid in full,” then added, “The exclusive contract states that when profit should occur then it should be distributed every month on the 25th, but from the group′s debut on April 2011 to October of the same year, there was no profit, so we couldn′t make the payments.”It also added that with consent from the members′ parents on March 2012, they had changed the payment dates to once every three months, and that everyone had agreed to the change.

About the man who disappeared after receiving 70 million won, it said, “A man whom we had hired as a manager pretended to be the head of Stardom Entertainment, forged nameplates, swindled money from a few members and then went into hiding. We learned of this later on, but we had hesitated on taking legal measures in case it would bring harm to Block B.”

It added that the man had been sued by another victim and so was on the police′s wanted list, and that it hoped the man would be brought to justice soon.

The agency then added to the controversy, saying that Block B′s complaint was mostly centered on their not being able to appear on television and that there was a mastermind leading the members to go against their agency.

It stated that the problem with their televised appearances mostly occurred when the group was lying low after the Thailand flood controversy, and that the mastermind behind the case was driving a wedge between the group and its agency after cutting them off from each other using the financial issues.

It finished, “We promise to work hard to take care of the misunderstanding between us and Block B, and come to an agreeable conclusion.”
