On November 8, Lotte Entertainment reported that film Jackal is Coming has been sold to Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei before its release in Korea.

The Japanese distribution company of the film says, “Jae Joong is one of the most popular Korean singers in Japan. We’re expecting that the film will become a box office hit because he’s a good actor and he appears as a top celebrity in the film.”

Japan distributor who participated in the pre-sale has said, “Kim Jaejoong is the most popular in Japan among Korean artists and has appeared in many productions in both countries. Due to his good acting and the fact that this is his first movie, major box office hit is expected throughout Japan.”
Jackal is coming is a suspense-comedy about a woman killer (Song JiHyo) who kidnaps top Hallyu star (Kim Jaejoong).The domestic release is on the 15th.
Despite his doctor’s advice not to travel, JYJ Jaejoong showed his persistency to continue his journey to Jakarta, Indonesia, for his first ever fanmeet in the country on 3 November 2012. However, due to his well-being getting worse, press conference was held without his appearance and the fanmeet where interactions and songs should be sung, was also not done.
Monica Ohm from SH Entertainment explained his situation that “his health condition was not good. The doctor in the hospital had adviced him to rest. But he persisted to come to Indonesia to continue with his fanmeet because he wanted to meet all his fans who had waited for him for a long time.”
