Kim Junsu’s Profile
Kim Junsu also known by his stage name Xia was born December 15, 1986 in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, but his registered birth date is January 1, 1987. His mother was a former Miss Korea contestant. He also has an older fraternal twin brother named Kim Junho, who is also a singer active mainly in Japan and China where he is more known by his stage names JUNO and ZUNO. In elementary school, he was a member of a dance group called SRD, which stood for song, rap and dance with his childhood friend Eunhyuk of Super Junior. Junsu was signed by South Korean talent agency SM Entertainment after his performance in their 6th Annual Starlight Casting System. He joined SM Entertainment at the age of eleven and his first contract began February 12, 2000.
Junsu was the first member to join TVXQ and officially debuted with the group on December 26, 2003. He chose “Xiah” to be his stage name, saying that the name was short for “Asia” (taking out the “a” in “Asia”). “Xiah” would be an indication of his desire to become not only a star in Korea, but also be recognized all throughout Asia. Throughout his career as TVXQ’s member, Kim had written and composed several songs that have appeared on the group’s Korean and Japanese releases.
In 2010 the three-member group JYJ (stands for Jaejoong Yoochun Yunsu) was created following an announcement made by Avex Trax, the trio’s Japanese label at that time. After Avex revealed that TVXQ would go on an indefinite hiatus, it was decided that Kim would make his solo singing debut in Japan. Since then, his career continues to skyrocket. He also has branched out to acting in musicals. Right now he works under the talent agency C-JeS Entertainment.
