Choi Kanghee Says: Ji Sung Would Make a Good Husband… Jaejoong’s (Acting and Star Quality) Is Inborn
“I think Ji Sung would make a good husband. I think Jaejoong became a star because he has the innate something in side of him.”
Choi Kanghee, who has successfully finished the SBS drama Protect the Boss last month, sent a round of applause to the actors with whom she collaborated.
Choi Kanghee said in an interview with Yonhap News recently about Ji Sung, who is her age and whom she collaborated with as her character’s lover: “I heard that his IQ is 147—and (fitting of that description) he seems extremely smart.”
She relayed: “I was able to collaborate very well with Ji Sung. He came having analyzed the ad libs beforehand and so he would be hilarious out of nowhere while acting—and those things also melted into the drama.” Continuing, she added: “Ji Sung has both a side that is mature and one that is like a kid. He is considerate and so I think he will make a good husband.”
On Kim Jaejoong, who is a rookie at acting and is of JYJ, she exclaimed in awe: “He is a rookie at acting, but he has this “something” that is innate in him. He has this “something” that is instinctive. He was not a star for no reason.”
Continuing, she added: “Jaejoong is extremely, extremely kindhearted. I was happy in acting with him.” Read More →

The below is the excerpt related to Jaejoong in an extended interview with the scriptwriter and the director of Protect the Boss.
<Protect the Boss> Interview with Scriptwriter Kwon Kiyoung and Director Sohn Junghyun
Question: As for someone like Kim Jaejoong, he does not have too much experience in acting. And Cha Muwon is a unique character—he seems like the typical perfect successor to a chaebol estate but he is, in a sneaky way, slack and has a funny side. So it does not seem that it would have been easy for an actor to grasp the tone of the character. How did you direct with regards to the acting?
SBS‘s ’Protect the Boss‘ seemed to come out of nowhere with its strong popularity, and many viewers who had no expectations were ultimately surprised by its quality content. But what made this drama stand out from the rest?
‘Protect The Boss’ was a feel-good drama that didn’t have any negative elements of an affair or a broken family; it also lacked a character that you loved to hate. The way that the characters caused problems in the story were endearing in their own way, and when the characters plotted against each other, the situation turned out pretty comical in the end.

Protect the Boss Wipes Out Prejudice. Ji Sung – Kim Jaejoong… Indeed Queen of Romantic Comedy Choi Kanghee
Kim Jaejoong Passes the Test in Acting
Kim Jaejoong’s challenge onto the domestic drama scene received received responses more positive than expected. This is because Kim Jaejoong had already become recognized to a degree as for his potential to improve in his acting by having appeared in the Japanese drama Sunao ni Narenakute. This prediction was spot on to a degree. The prejudice against idol acting did not grab Kim Jaejoong’s ankles (and sink him). On the contrary, Cha Muwon of Protect the Boss was expressed through Kim Jaejoong to be a clean, uncontrived character.
Director Lee Sangbaek of A-Story, the production company of Protect the Boss, explained about Kim Jaejoong: “He has the looks that can capture women, and he has a high name-recognition value in Asia. But even before (considering) those factors, we looked at Kim Jaejoong’s Japanese drama and evaluated his acting. He analyzed that he without fail would have potential, and so we cast him.”

In the end, the lead of Protect the Boss was Kim Jaejoong?!
“Muwon! There is no exit from you.” Seo Nayun (Wang Jihye) uttered those words to Cha Muwon (Kim Jaejoong) who had made a meal for her. What does she mean? When Cha Muwon gazed at her with a question, she says again. “I only keep falling in, deeper and deeper.” These are words normally uttered by a woman to a man, but this drama has a woman say them to a man and so gives an inverted fun. But even so, there does not seem to have been an end to the attractiveness of Cha Muwon, from the beginning to end of watching this drama.
First, Cha Muwon is a man near perfection in the drama. He is a next-generation corporate man who is hot in DN Group. As is described in the final episode, he climbed up to become the executive director thanks to the hyper-sonic speed of his promotions. When compared to Cha Jihun (Ji Sung) who is still the director of headquarters, this signifies that his ability to run the corporation has become recognized. Read More →
