Another band–or singer–I didn’t really know much about before headed into Kcon. I’d breezed past a few of his songs and had affectionately dubbed him “the rocker kid”. Which pretty much sums him up–a nice looking young man who isn’t so much kpop by the way that CNblue isn’t that Kpop. He plays the guitar while belting out a lightly harder sound.

My group was lucky enough to be all win tickets to be in the audience at the signing, so we were able to get some photos of him, and listen to him awkwardly chat with the host of the event.joonjungyoung kcon
We learned that he has a tattoo on his arm that is from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, although he assured us “I’m not gay.” As I like the idea of that tattoo as well, and had once considered it for my own skin before thankfully realizing I’m not the tattoo type, I completely understand his choice.

We did not stick around to see the signing or the high touch–as why stand around wasting time being jealous of others? We had things to do!

Back to the concert. I really liked the sound of his music, and we learned he is a Michael Jackson fan, as he decided to end his set with a rendition of Black and White, complete with MJ-esque dance moves, and a duet with Rap Monster from BTS, resplendent in an all white suit (which went with JJY’s all black ensemble.)

I will be pretty excited to see just what this guy comes out with during his career, you know since he is just starting.

Another winner from one of those music shows, which has pulled out the likes of Akdong Musicians, LeeHi, and Roy Kim, I’m sure he’s headed for big things (and not just the Khottie list…)JUNG JOON YOUNG KCON IMG_0536

Here is are some of the songs from his set–if you watch anything, watch that cover–it is a hoot!
