JYJ‘s Jaejoong revealed that ‘Code Name Jackal‘ co-star Song Ji Hyo‘s clumsiness almost cost him his potential future marriage.
During the press conference held on the 16th, Jaejoong and Song Ji Hyo picked the word ‘sword’ as a keyword for the movie. Song Ji Hyo confessed, “I’m originally clumsy, so I was spinning the sword and dropped it on Jaejoong. My character is a killer, but she’s a clumsy and awkward character. I’m clumsy in real life, too. I always wrap things up in a mess and try to just go around it.”
Jaejoong explained, “There’s a scene where Song Ji Hyo was playing around with the sword, but her hand slips and she drops the sword and it lodges right in between my legs. If there was an NG, I might not have been able to get married. To be honest, I was scared when Song Ji Hyo was playing with the sword, but since she practiced so much it was okay.“
JYJ‘s Jaejoong made a shocking confession about his love life.
On October 16th, Jaejoong attended a press conference for his movie ‘Code Name Jackal‘. In the movie, Jaejoong plays top star Choi Hyun that is incredibly popular with his beautiful looks and nice manners. However, behind the scenes, he enjoys annoying his manager, ignores his fans, and has no morals. He is kidnapped by Song Ji Hyo‘s character Bong Min Jung, a famous killer, and is faced with incredible danger.
After a question was asked what he would if he were Song Ji Hyo’s character, Jaejoong confessed, “If I became a killer that kidnaps people, there are a lot of people who I would want to kidnap. I like a lot of people, so there are a lot of people I want to kidnap. If there’s a woman I like and she keeps pushing back marriage or doesn’t want to date me, I think I would want to kidnap her. I want to date her by kidnapping her.”
JYJ group member Kim Jaejoong’s frienship with Psy caught the attention of the public.
