Soon after he finished his first drama as the male lead, in media interviews, Kim Jaejoong expressed his affection toward ‘Triangle’. He also added a ‘cute’ sorrow because while busy focusing on revenge, he couldn’t fully cover the melo with Baek Jinhee.
“I have a bittersweet feeling when the drama ended. Actually the bitterness is bigger. I wanted to show more of the brotherhood and the love with Oh Junghee, but as the drama has only 26 episodes, it can’t handle many stories. What a shame. If it had 50 episodes, I think it could convey more.”
“I tried a lot so that Jinhee and I could look like real lovers. In order to get along well, we always keep in touch. Jinhee has appeared on many dramas; she’s good at acting and has deep thoughts about acting. I worried a lot about how we two should act to look like real lovers but we couldn’t show much in the drama. What a shame. It would be nice if we had one more kiss scene… (Laughs) Actually the only one kiss scene in the drama was filmed in the morning of the broadcasting day. Since we didn’t have time, we couldn’t put much effort into it. I wish it could come out more beautifully and ardently. Too bad.”
In this drama, Kim Jaejoong got a lot of attention for his deeper and richer emotions in acting.
“As this is my first drama as the male lead, I wasn’t familiar with the fact that a lot of emotional expressions have to be shown. In fact, Youngdal’s filming part was big. It might have been tough physically and mentally but it wasn’t, as I thought I wanted to experience more in acting. The viewers commented that my acting was good but it’s not easy for me to evaluate my own work. However, I had a sense of responsibility and tried my best. My biggest aim was to enjoy the filming with co-actors and staff. I think the responsibility of the male lead is to create a pleasant atmosphere in the filming set.”
In the filming set, the existence of Kim Jaejoong was like vitamin. The shooting conditions were hard but he created a friendly atmosphere for his co-actors and staff. Thanks to that, they were able to continue filming in the situation that NG happened frequently because of lack of practice time due to last-minute scripts. Kim Jaejoong’s sociability did a great job. Read More →
