JYJ‘s Jaejoong, who is slated to return soon with the film ‘Code Name Jackal‘, had a photo shoot on location in India for Elle‘s 20th anniversary issue, where he also sat down with the magazine and took some time to truthfully talk about himself.
For this photoshoot, the singer protrayed a traveler by posing at an Indian resort with India’s dramatic heritage as his background.
In northern India, the road to Alwar located near Rajasthan was more difficult than they had anticipated. They shouldn’t have believed so easily when they heard that it would only take 4 and a half hours from Delhi Airport.
For the people who measure time by the ticks of a clock, it wasn’t easy joining people in a city who followed the spirit of time. All too often, they complained, “Are we out here filming The Laws of the Jungle“.
For seven hours, the enormous dust cloud followed the van as if it were a genie from a magical lamp. Amongst all the dust, dawn was peeking, and out of the van window they could see the people of Ajabgarh going about their daily lives like a mirage in a desert.
Someone commented in awe, “I feel like Indiana Jones. It’s as if we are journeying through the past.”
But the villa favored by the king hundreds of years ago became nothing more than a dry village for the poor. The lake barely survived the monsoon, becoming a puddle of sticky acorn jello (t/n: Korean traditional food), but they were relieved to find the people’s hearts were still full of moisture.
“Wow, this is a tremendous country.” Jaejoong’s reflection of happiness and sadness aroused inspiration as the elegant resort opened up without a single notice. Within the sound of the faint sadness, their minds became clear.
Jaejoong, as a member of JYJ, gives more attention to the diversity of development rather than just concentrating on one field. However, he has never endured the experience of seeing various challenges and images all at once before.
