From TVXQ to Rookie Actor Kim Jaejoong. “Acting is Difficult.”
Doctor (Kim Jaejoong) in Sunao Ni Narenakute of Japan’s Fuji TV. He is a salesman of a medical equipment company and he confesses his heart to Haru (Ueno Juri) with whom he fell in love at first sight. Doctor, who holds Haru in his arms to confess shyly “Joahe” (T/N: Korean for “I like you”) was enough to make the female heart tremble.
JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong who has already debuted in Japan as an actor is undergoing an initiation ceremony as an actor through a Korean drama. He is taking the role of Cha Muwon in the new SBS Wed-Thurs drama that will be aired in coming August, Protect the Boss. Cha Muwon is Ji Sung’s younger cousin.
I met Kim Jaejoong who is being reborn as an actor in the office of OhMyNews located in Seoul, Mapo Gu, Sangam Dong, on the afternoon of the 12th. Kim Jaejoong who was the youngest person on the shooting set was a fresh-faced newbie actor who seemed to have forgotten that it has been 8 years since his debut. I talked with him, who was saying that “It is my regular trade after all—singing is easier than acting.”
Q: You did appear in Heaven’s Postman in 2009 but it seems that after Sunao Ni Narenakute there were many fans who were awaiting “acting Kim Jaejoong.” Why was your debut in the domestic acting scene so late?
“I did try to challenge myself (at acting) a bit earlier. But because of activities as JYJ which was my center and due to circumstances around me, I was unfortunately not able to hasten the time. I came to come visit you (as an actor) only now. If I had done a drama in Korea immediately after Sunao Ni Narenakute I don’t think that the anxiety would have been to this degree. It’s been more than a year and the feelings with regards to acting and everything else feels too new. I am trembling as if I am beginning all over again.”
Q: Did you become close with the actors who will appear together with you in Protect the Boss?
“I am the youngest on the set. Also I am a rookie actor. All of them make me so comfortable. I do not look very fresh-faced on the outside (laughter. He is born in 1986 and is 26 this year) but I am very fresh-faced in spirit.” Read More →

Jaejoong Slept Alongside Ji Sung Wearing Only Underwear… Twice
Group JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong is in Ji Sung Illness (T/N: Korean term. In this context it means that Jaejoong is occupying himself with Ji Sung.)
Kim Jaejoong is appearing in a domestic drama for the first time through SBS TV’s Protect the Boss. After he tasted acting through the movie Heaven’s Postman, he caught its drift through Sunao Ni Narenakute of Japan’s Fuji TV.
Kim Jaejoong, who will play a second generation chaebol Cha Muwon, is cousins with Cha Jihun played by Ji Sung. They fight over the right of control over the management due to an incident from their parents’ generation, and come to stand in conflict. Jaejoong expresed his thanks: “I struggle with Ji Sung Hyung over power but in truth I became quite close with Hyung. Faced with the awkward atmosphere of (it being) my first drama, I was not able to easily approach (others) but Hyung was kind enough to himself approach me first.”
The impetus that made Jaejoong even closer with Ji sung was the MT that they went on with the cast and staff. Jaejoong confessed: “Before going into the filming in earnest, Ji Sung Hyung organized an MT so I came to go. In the beginning it was awkward because we met as a sunbae and hubae. But later we drank and I came to sleep in our underwears only with Hyung.”
Jaejoong chatted: “After that, Ji Sung contacted me to do script practice together and so I went to his house to play. That day too I came to sleep on Hyung’s bed in my underwear. In the MT, we slept, saying “who cares since we are both men?” As for the second time, he said: “We did it the first time so who cares about the second time?” It seems that as we went through a lot together, we came to be close friends fast.” Read More →
Kim Jaejoong “Heart Flutters at Acting Debut… Will Move Hearts and Give Laughter”
Kim Jaejoong, who as JYJ is receiving great love that transcends Asia to be from all over the world, is debuting as a rookie actor in the domestic scene. That is done through the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama Protect the Boss that is planned to first air on the 3rd of next month.
Kim Jaejoong stepped out onto acting through the movie Heaven’s Postman, a collaborative project between Korea and Japan of 2009. He appeared with Japan’s top stars Ueno Juri, Eita and such in Sunao Ni Narenakute which was aired in Japan’s Fuji TV to show off a stable acting and received praise.
Further, now Kim Jaejoong is engaging himself in earnest with domestic acting work through Protect the Boss. He has taken the role of Cha Muwon, the “Prince of the Financial World” who has powerful abilities, and plans to show the chic, cold man of the city.
“Until now, I examined carefully the suggestions of movies and dramas, giving them a lot of time. There were some works in which I could not appear because the scheduling or timing were not right. But Protect the Boss has a fun scenario and I thought that the role of Cha Muwon suited me well and so I came to decide on it.”
Protect the Boss, which has received Jaejoong’s choice, is an unprecedented, sweet and thrilling “Tame the Delinquent Chaebol Project” that will unfold as a rookie female secretary meets as her boss a delinquent 2nd generation chaebol. Sohn Junghyun PD of Lovers of Paris and Temptations from an Angel and the writer Kwon Kiyoung who wrote To Become Insane in Love have joined forces. Read More →
On July 12 at 2:00 p.m. JYJ’s Jae Joong caught Yoo Chun undressing in the picture and uploaded it on his twitter with a comment, “This is what we call a ‘stolen shot.’”
The picture is a little shaken, but the hairstyle and the smiley eyes exactly match Yoo Chun’s. Yoo Chun’s stunned look makes the fans laugh.
Netizens say: “Cute Yoo Chun.” “Is it taken when Yoo Chun was changing his pants?” “It seems like you guys, the members of JYJ, are getting along well.”
Meanwhile, Jae Joon is playing a prince in SBS’s series Protect The Boss which premieres on August 3.
JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong showed to the public their masculine appeal along with group member Kim Junsu.
On July 12th, around 2:10pm, Kim Jaejoong posted a picture of him and Junsu on his twitter profile with the comment, “This is our two shot.”
The Kim Junsu in this photo might have a stiff expression but his eyes blazed with an intense stare.
Next to him with his arm around Junsu is Kim Jaejoong wearing a thick necklace with a sleeveless shirt, making his hard muscles stand out.
