[TRANS] Park Yuchun-kun. As we let him stand in front of the camera, he looks pretty. Whoever son he is must feel glad/proud/lucky.
[T/N: ‘-kun’ is used when calling young boys or unmarried young men. I think the PD(?) refers to both of his parents, not only his mother ^^]

In the interview with Nocut News, Kim Jaejoong revealed, “In the early phase of the scenario, I was just being me. Of course it was not the case in the later part of the story but I think everybody would be like that if they were kidnapped.“
“In the movie, there is a scene where I told Bong Minjung ‘It was so hard for me in the past. I don’t want to live that life again. I am doing just fine now.’ It’s not a scene with extreme emotion and I didn’t have to cry but I found myself shedding tears. That cut was used in the movie but it actually wasn’t in the original script. There were many before-debut stories that I couldn’t tell. Maybe my tears fell because of those thoughts.“
Last time at the showcase, director Bae Hyungjoon has praised the ‘messy’ image of Kim Jaejoong. About this, Kim Jaejoong humbly said, “I think he feels relieved seeing me let go of all restrictions without hesitation. And it seems that he liked the ad-libs [that I made]. Maybe he praised me because I has quickly adapted.“
I asked if his fans were shocked by his ‘messy’ image and received a surprising answer. He said, “I think my fans like it very much as they can see various images of mine. Actually, I also thought that they would love it when I was filming.”
Kim Jaejoong is expanding his territory as an actor. He said, “Acting is a new domain. The more I do it, the more I find it refreshing and attractive. It gives motivation to keep going in the future.”
But it doesn’t mean that Kim Jaejoong would neglect activities as a singer. He promised, “All the members are busy with individual activities. Therefore, we are preparing in advance for new album in spare time. I’ll continue music activities as JYJ and as individual.”
Like he said, JYJ members have many individual activities now. Drama <I miss you> of Park Yoochun is on air. Kim Junsu continues his musical activities. Like this, it cannot avoid the situation that they have to compete with each other. Even though, the presence of the members is still his great source of strength.
Kim Jaejoong expressed his honest feeling, “The members have activities in the same fields and our activities overlap. That’s why we might feel self-conscious or uncomfortable. We are trying our best not to overlap each other.”
“When the members have activity (album, drama), I give a lot of support and promote it a lot. But they don’t do the same to me. Recently When I was having a meal together with Junsu and my company’s staffs told him ’Shouldn’t you evidently help to promote [Jaejoong]?’ The support of the members is really my great source of strength.“
[Only Jaejoong-related parts are translated]
Song Jihyo proudly talked about their teamwork, “I’m the type that usually takes long time to get to know my co-actor/actress. And because of my expectation [about the co-actor/actress], I always regret later. But this time, because I don’t need time to be acquainted with him, we helped each other by talking about the movie and had fun filming.”
She also said, “At that time, Jaejoong was having hard time because he was filming drama too. Even though, he has never complained about it even once. I thought that he fit the character well when I read the scenario. I believed that he could do well.”
Song Jihyo added, “He’s a delightful and simple person. He also has a lot of talents. Jaejoong absorbed the atmosphere like he absorbed the space itself, as if he had been there for long time. It would be tough if he didn’t have natural talent.”
Hallyu star JYJ Kim Jaejoong. Kim Jaejoong in real life is more vivacious than I expected. At the photo shooting set for the interview, he kept talking with the PR staffs and the agency officials. There is only one topic. He want to promote even just a little more his debut movie <Code name: Jackal>, and to have more chance, even just a little more, to express himself in front of his fans.
Kim Jaejoong plays an arrogant Hallyu star in <Code name: Jackal>. He nags at his manager, ignores his fans. It’s a thoughtless bastard character.
“Because I have appeared in traditional dramas, I really wanted to do something different. I wanted to show a more relaxed and free image. Actually, since <Code name: Jackal> has many comical scenes, many things were exaggerated. However, in such process, my honest image can be seen. I want to show everyone that Kim Jaejoong also has this aspect; that Kim Jaejoong can also act like that.”
<Code name: Jackal> is Kim Jaejoong’s debut movie. Although it was burdensome, he could comfortably approach [the movie] because its genre is comedy. “I still don’t have enough experience to take the lead role.” Kim Jaejoong humbly said.
“In case of drama, the episodes are airing while the drama is shooting, so we can know the reaction from time to time. But movies are not like that. We had the press premiere and I was really nervous. It was like I was waiting for my score after completing all my homework. Would you believe me if I say that I was so horrified that I got goosebumps?”
“Now that I think about it, there are some scenes where I should have overacted more. At the filming set I thought that it was OK but after watching the movie, I think differently. Rather than one flow, it should have had some up-and-down emotions. It’s regrettable.”
Park Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye called out each other’s names.
On episode 6 of MBC Wed/Thu drama ‘I Miss You’ which aired on November 22nd, Han Jung Woo (played by Park Yoochun) went to Lee Soo Yeon and asked her to say his name.
Han Jung Woo went to see Lee Soo Yeon without a notice and he blocked Lee Soo Yeon’s car as she was returning home. Lee Soo Yeon was startled, got out of her car and stared at Han Jung Woo. Han Jung Woo said to Lee Soo Yeon, “Say my name just once, Lee Soo Yeon.”
Lee Soo Yeon was taken aback by the request and called him, “Detective Han” and Han Jung Woo responded, “You’re not, right? I know. I know but you seem like the person I’m looking for. I seem like I’m crazy, right? That’s why I’m not going to any more. Just today. I’m going to look (for her) just today then I’m going to end it. It’s really over. So please just do me a favor and send me away. My name is Han Jung Woo.”
At Han Jung Woo’s request, Lee Soo Yeon called him “Han Jung Woo” as if she felt nothing. Han Jung Woo turned around and asked over and over “Just once… Just once,.” Then Lee Soo Yeon called him, “Jung Woo yah. Han Jung Woo”, the way that she used to in their youth. Han Jung Woo turned around and said, “Soo Yeon ah” and the viewers wondered whether they will finally really recognize each other and accept each other for who they really are.
