JYJ's Jaejoong Praises Psy and His Success

By Staff Writer | October 02, 2012 10:30 PM EDT


Yesterday, KpopStarz released an exclusive interview with JYJ's Jaejoong for placing #1 in our Best Artist for the First Half of 2012 poll. During our interview, we asked Korea's flower boy his opinion on certain issues such as Psy's success and the future of the Hallyu Wave.

Here's what Jaejoong had to say:

I think Psy is really wonderful. When I see his activity in the US, I really feel that he's so great and inspiring. I say this to myself. He is always honest when he speaks. He's never copied someone else's music. He doesn't believe in making music just for the sake of making music. I think it was music that was created from his own thoughts and style that made an explosion in the US. His popularity is not just limited in the US, but it's all over the world. I think his own style and personality appealed to people around the world. His sincere music really appealed to people.

Due to this one artist from Korea, people may have more of an opportunity to listen to other K-Pop music, which can strengthen other junior musicians. I think it will become a good opportunity for many other Korean artists.

According to Jaejoong, there seems to be a great and bright future ahead for the world of K-Pop and the Hallyu Wave! All thanks to Psy, a big gateway has opened for many Korean artists to take on new challenges and opportunities worldwide especially the US market.
