JYJ Kim Jaejoong disclosed the reason he sang Cho Yong-pil’s song, which gathered attention.
On the last 19th, JYJ held a press conference for their ‘2014 JYJ Japan Dome Tour Ichigo Ichie’ in Tokyo Dome.
It was revealed that Kim Jaejoong would sing the Japanese version of Cho Yong-pil’s ‘Walking Along’ – Arukitai in his solo performance. Kim Jaejoong said, “Due to filming schedule, I went to Jeju island. At that time, by chance, I heard “Walking Along” in the car. I find it very nice. It’s also the first Korean song which topped the weekly chart in Japan.”
He disclosed, “Senior Cho Yong-pil only released the Japanese version, he didn’t do promotional activities. I thought that not many people could know the song. It’s such a shame to enjoy it alone. So I wanted to sing it.”
Kim Jaejoong added, “I asked senior Cho Yong-pil via phone call. He asked me how I would sing it. So I recorded a guide version and sent it to him. He said it was good and we decided to have a meal together. I want to sing it well in the concert and have a meal with him after coming back to Korea.”
