[K-Pop Battle] JYJ’s Kim Junsu vs. B2ST’s Jang Hyun Seung
Kim Junsu and Jang Hyun Seung may seem like a random match at first glance for this week’s K-Pop Battle, but the JYJ member and B2ST member are actually one in the same.
We’re referring to their having played the same lead role in musical Mozart!, of course!
Despite his idol star background, Kim Junsu has quickly become a bonafide musical star, while Jang Hyun Seung splashed onto the musical scene this summer, making his debut as the famed composer.
Mozart! was the debut musical for both Kim Junsu and Jang Hyun Seung, but which boy band member makes the better Mozart? Vote in this week’s K-Pop Battle to decide!
Kim Junsu is a jack of all trades, if we’ve ever seen one. From traveling the world for his solo promotions to, most recently, popping up in Fiestar’s music video, it seems like Kim Junsu is everywhere these days.
At this point in Kim Junsu’s career, finding him at the top of the music charts is a given, but when it comes to the hierarchy of idols in the musical world, Kim Junsu is also at the top.
And you can’t beat someone who has claim to the title of ‘Most Powerful Idol in Musicals’—for the third year running.
See why Kim Junsu is such a big deal in the clip below.
Jang Hyun Seung
B2ST’s Jang Hyun Seung made his musical debut in July as the genius composer Mozart, but even before he took to the stage, there was much talk about him, becoming the second Kim Junsu in the musical world.
Jang Hyun Seung even said himself that he was feeling a bit burdened by the big shoes he had to fill.
The B2ST vocalist has certainly proved he’s cut out for the competition through the group’s numerous hit songs and as one-half of the issue-making unit duo Trouble Maker. And with the support of his B2UTYs, Jang Hyun Seung was able to dominate the stage all summer long.
But what would it sound like if the two were to take the stage together?
Check out the mash up of Kim Junsu’s and Jang Hyun Seung’s vocals put together by a YouTube user to find out!
But remember, only one musical star will come out on top, so cast your vote now in the K-Pop section!
