01 The genuine good looking guy of ancient Korea is me!
The stills of JYJ’s Jaejoong who tried acting in a period drama for the first time has been revealed.
He excels at his first attempt at a period drama, where he played the role of a police officer, Kim KyungTak who is good at martial arts and has a strong desire for victory, but behind those personalities, he holds the pain that no one could understand.
From that layer, he was said to readily bare a passionate acting and the interest of fans from within Korea and internationally heightened. To make sure that he could grasp the way of talking and actions of ancient times, Jaejoong devoted a lot of time practicing enthusiastically, and of course, he had also worked hard learning how to ride a horse.
JYJ Kim Jaejoong’s popularity in Japan is still hot.

Pre-orders for the DVD started last July and was immediately ranked no 1 in various online sites such as HMV Japan, Amazon, and Rakuten.
[Jaejoong IN 'Protect the Boss' Special Making DVD] has garnered attention even before it was put on sale because it includes behind the scenes shooting, script reading, press conference, and specially a video of Kim Jaejoong doing the narration from SBS drama’s “Protect The boss” which was aired last September 2011.
His management said, “It’s been 3 years since Kim Jaejoong’s last activity in Japan and the result is very surprising because the DVD is not a song or a concert but a making of his drama. Kim Jaejoong’s high popularity could be the contributing factor why Protect the Boss has been rebroadcast from several channels across Japan.”
Kim Jaejoong, whose song “I’ll Protect You” from the Protect the Boss OST, is still popular in domestic music charts like Hanteo even though it was released a year ago.
