In his recent interview for L’Officiel Hommes KR, Eita was asked if he has a favorite singer.
Answer: Jaejoong. We worked together in Sunao ni Narenakute. His actual voice is indisputably the best male voice I ever heard. I felt that he has a beautiful voice the first time I heard it.

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.”

Note: Lee Hwangwoo is the manager of the actresses Kim Ahjoong and Hong Sooah. He tweeted the following a few hours ago:
[TRANS] It seems that whether Kim Jaejoong-kun will appear in the SBS Mini Series The Last Secretary is the talk of the town… FYI, I met Jaejoong on my way out from doing some work in the production company of that drama about a week ago… I feel that likely he is examining the possibility positively… I think it will be fine if he performs as well as he did in Sunao ni Narenakute!!
It seems that the industry insiders give good marks to Jaejoong’s acting in Sunao ni Narenakute! ^__^
