He has become a full-fledged actor now. Kim Jaejoong, 26, was satisfied with the new acting experiences that he has gained in MBC’s weekend drama, Dr Jin.
He started acting in the movie, Heaven’s Postman in 2009 and he went on to star in the drama, Protect the Boss in 2011. After winning the newcomer award for his role in Protect the Boss, he challenged a historical drama this time round. The drama could be a rash challenge for him, but he recognized the possibility of acting in it.
He said: “As it’s a historical drama, I started with a blank slate. Initially, I was confused about the things I had to learn and express. I asked the acting instructor for advice, but I thought that it would become the instructor’s acting and not mine. So, I changed my mind. I decided to not follow the instructor’s guidance and express the character (Kim KyungTak) by myself. I thought I will be able to express the character if I leave everything behind.”
Kim Jaejoong faced yet another challenge in the historical drama because of his husky voice. It was not easy to grasp the vocalization and tone, but he overcame it by listening to a sunbae’s advice – using the eyes to act to make up for what he lacked.
As the maknae in the filming set, he was the mood maker. However, the other person who took a step in creating moods was Kim Eungsoo.

Lee So Yeon has been attracted to the charms of her Dr Jin’s co-star singer-actor Kim Jaejoong.
In a recent OSEN interview, she was asked about her impression of Kim Jaejoong. She said: “There were also many fans who came to the set, so I felt his immense popularity. After working together with him, I came to know why he receives so much love.”
She said: “When I stood at the side to observe his acting, the look of his eyes was very good. It was strong and yet melancholic. It made me feel very sorry for his character.” She regarded the look of his eyes as his most attractive asset.
She also said: “In Dr Jin, Kim KyungTak was a very pitiful character and the look of Kim Jaejoong’s eyes were very pitiful when he was acting. Every time I meet Kim Jaejoong, I would tell him that KyungTakie seemed like the most pitiful character.”

Having just one more episode to go to complete its 22 episodes, Dr. Jin (written by Han Ji Hoon, Jun Hyun Jin, directed by Han Hee, Oh Hyung Jong) revealed some photos of its last shooting on August 10. The weather was hot and the schedule was tight, but actors kept bright faces in front of the cameras.
The atmosphere on the setting was warm and happy. Actors and production crew have been through a lot together as they shoot 22 episodes, and they encouraged and played jokes with one another. Until the very last shooting, all actors were so into their characters that staff was astonished at their passion.
Actor Song Seung Hun says, “Because it was my first time to be in a Korean historical drama, I was burdened at first. But as it turns out, I became so fond of historical series thanks to Dr. Jin. Things were hard at times but my colleague actors have been a big support.”
Dr. Jin is keeping viewers curious about whether the genius surgeon of the 21 century, Jin Hyuk, would be able to go back to his time. The last episode will be on August 11 at 9:50 p.m.
T/N: Read more Jaejoong’s effect here
JYJ‘s Jaejoong has been receiving attention because the bracelet he was seen wearing has been sold out.
On August 8th, Jaejoong attended the VIP screening of ‘R2B: Return to Base’ and on this day he made a casual outfit consisting of a white v neck, sunglasses, and jeans seem stellar. He also wore bracelets on both wrists and the red bracelet he was seen wearing on his left wrist became a hot seller and sold out on a Japanese online shopping mall.
Jaejoong’s popularity was thus proven again by showing that just sporting a simple bracelet can lead to massive sales that will lead to the item becoming sold out. This has now been dubbed as the ‘Kim Jaejoong Effect’.
Netizens commented on this saying, “The Kim Jaejoong effect is daebak, the bracelet’s already sold out,” “The Kim Jaejoong effect is the best!,” “The Kim Jaejoong effect! The man that can make items sell out at the speed of light,” and “Kim Jaejoong is amazing too, but the fans that go out and look for this bracelet are even more amazing.”
