This will be the first of the "To You" series where a post will be dedicated to each of the members.

Kim Junsu a.k.a Xiah Junsu, fondly known as the "Dolphin" because of his high pitched voice and ability to mimick dolphin cries. I don't care if Yunho claims that it sounds nothing at all like a dolphin in the latest "O" DVD Talk. It sounds adorable to me and I just can't get enough of it. HAHA.
The first thing that attracted me to him was how he sings and dances. So full of emotion. His moves are often exaggerated (in a nice way, of course) in showing his passion for it and because of that, it looks extra awesome. There's nothing like emotion and passion to heighten and artist's performance. He's so talented and he knows how to flaunt it with a confidence and seriousness that shows his commitment in his work. He's often tagged the all rounder in the group because of his mastery in both singing and dancing.
Yet when not performing, he's so adorable and playful offstage that makes you love him even more. He does the silliest and funniest random things. He's just a natural comedian maybe because its all spontaneous. One of my favourites is the one where he hits his face with the necklace trying to imitate Usher. Here's the adorable clip:
Some say that he has a wonderful smile.
I would have to agree with that. His famous trademark laugh is so contagious. Its as if you let out all the air inside you. A big hearty laugh is what would best describe it. You would know its him immediately. I dont think I've ever heard anyone laugh like that. Plus he laughs easily at things. (Hmm..kinda like myself and some people I know..)
Perhaps its his good nature that makes him subject to bullying. Its purely my personal opinion though that I feel he's so often bullied by the other members. They give him weird nicknames and imitate his high voice just to name a few. Micky loves to request him to demonstrate stuff. And our dear Xiah always obliges but gets really embarassed after that and hides behind Micky (or any of the others). Aww..so cute.. Either that or he blushes a deep crimson as he did in this clip (Click Here). They make fun of him so much but he always just laughs it off good naturedly. What a good sport.
Xiah has gained a larger fan crowd with his new hair recently. More people notice him now. To me, it was definitely the charisma and personality which he oozes with in those numerous MVs I've watched that bought me over. Hence, blonde bangs, black locks, or brown spikes, he's stil the adorable yet charismatic Junsu to me. SARANGHAE YONGWONHI!
Maybe I should continue this gushing some other time. Don't wanna get carried away too much too soon.
p/s: Note to the other contributors. You can post your view of Xiah too. Just follow the title as in this post and add a (Part 2) to it.
