I’m so close to the audience right now. I’m pretty sure everyone behind me can see my butt. If I can sing ‘Isn’t This Song Funny’ in front of you, I can do this, right? What’s your wish?” Even before Kim Junsu was done speaking, fans had their hands in the air and tried to grab Kim Junsu’s attention.

– A reporter’s ramblings
The highlight of Kim Junsu’s concert was probably ‘Isn’t This Song Funny’. Even fans said it was hard to put that song into their MP3 players. But this song was the one that shined in his concert. A powerful performance and the repeated lyrics of ‘Isn’t this song funny’ had everyone laughing as they really found the song quite funny after a while. How did Kim Junsu think of making a song like this? It’s something I could never dream of. ‘Isn’t This Song Funny’ seems to embody the genius (?) of Kim Junsu’s mind. It’s a song that was born to be performed at a concert. The song brought out all of Kim Junsu’s energy and if anyone ever wishes to let it all go, they should think about performing the song at a karaoke bar. But whatever comes next is completely up to you to deal with.
