The production team said to Kim Jun-su, “The first stage you were on after six years was EBS Space”. In this regard, Kim Jun-su shared, “EBS Space wasn’t actually a program that idol singers go on so there were no limitations”.

He added, “The producer and the writer of the broadcast said it doesn’t matter. I was really thankful. They called me first”.

Recalling the past, Kim Jun-su said, “If I had a soccer tournament with the celebrities’ soccer club, Entertainment Weekly would come to shoot us and they would interview the actors or the idols”, adding “They interviewed me as well, but I know that I can’t be on TV so I tell them that but they said it’s okay. So I did the interview, but it was not on the TV. It got cut out”.

He continued, “Singing on stage was much more limited. My fans wouldn’t know about this but I even had some shootings that never got aired.”

“I thought about giving up then, but since that stage, I thought I should keep trying although I don’t know how long I can manage”, he confessed. Expressing his gratitude to EBS Space, Kim Jun-su said, “It was a music stage after six years. I felt so thankful”.

Meanwhile, Kim Jun-su made his debut as a member of TVXQ, a boy group under SM Entertainment, in 2004. He later left SM with Kim Jae-joong and Park Yoo-chung then re-debuted as JYJ. After leaving SM, JYJ members suffered a hard time due to restrictions on their TV appearances.
