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.
Its not too much to say that the group that Kim Jae Joong belongs to – JYJ, can sing, do variety and act.
In < Dr Jin >’s press conference, Kim Jae Joong said modestly that “In JYJ, I consider my acting skills to be the worst.” When the reporter asked him to give his own acting a score, he replied ” The score is not given by me, I couldn’t give myself a score. *smiles* The gentle sentimental Yoo Chun and the emotions that I convey are very different and can’t be compared. “
Those who are feel that he only drew upon his super idol star popularity to become an actor, is actually kind of prejudiced. More so as he comes from an idol background, Jae Joong is actually under more pressure to bear harsher scrutiny on his acting and face more challenges. That day, Kim Jae Joong expressed hopes for himself to become a better actor, to be able to grow from various challenges to become an actor who can connect well with audiences.
“It doesn’t help me to only do the things I am good at doing. I hope I can do a better job at acting similar roles, and even if I get hated by the audience I hope to try new roles.”
Jae Joong does not wish to only act characters close to his own personality nor depend on his idol popularity for his projects, even though he will not face derision for such choices. As for his following projects, Jae Joong displayed a fierce determination, he said ” Even though I would like to try romantic comedies again, I would very much like to challenge horror genre with psycho-like roles. “
I am very surprised that Jaejoong was nominated for Male Excellence Award in Korea Drama Awards 2012. Why I am surprised is because of the great actors that were nominated together with Jaejoong.
The nominees are as followings;
Kwak Do-Won of ‘Phantom’
The first fan support of Kim Jae Joong Taiwan Fan Support (Facebook) Page will begin. In order to promote ‘Dr. Jin’, which will be aired starting 3rd October, GTV, Kim JaeJoong Taiwan Fan Support Page will begin a bus campaign that lasts for a month. Three buses (route 299, 232, Blue 7) with huge Dr. Jin Ad will run along the streets in Taipei. We hope that through this campaign, Taiwanese people will get to know Kim Jae Joong (who acted as Kim Kyung Tak) more.
