It is sometimes cruel to be placed at crossroads and told to choose. For we will gain things but also lose things. It is not an easy task to state and differentiate between the pros and cons of choices because there is no standard to compare your choice with and because the tables may turn in an instant.

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, who recently stood at one of the most important crossroads in his life, didn’t say much at first and gave a relaxed smile for a while. He finally opened his mouth to speak when we asked him, ‘Are you content with your life right now?’. His answer was short and precise. “I’ve finally realized just how good it feels to be free.” But it took him over a year to find his balance once more; now, he remains unshaken even when his surroundings suddenly shift. It is because he has learned to accept reality and feel joy in the smallest things.

“I don’t feel uncomfortable talking about my past. That’s why I’m able to write ‘JYJ from 東方神起’ in my Twitter profile and it’s also why my phone’s start-up screen is a picture of TVXQ.”

Kim Jaejoong was confident about one thing, that “We will all be together one day.” Regarding the uncertain future, he believes that, “Time will heal all.” A year ago, he was so confused about his life that he had to take it one day at a time. He couldn’t make himself believe that he would be able to enjoy every day of his life or that he would be able to try anything he wanted to. He was able to feel a great sense of accomplishment from being the director of JYJ’s World Tour, which began in Thailand on the 2nd and 3rd of this month. He has now begun to dream a new dream.

“I want to try acting in a drama or a musical.” Kim Jaejoong’s new dream is to act and that is one thing that his fans are dying to hear news about. The project that C-JeS Entertainment has been preparing for a long time is Kim Jaejoong’s debut into the Korean drama industry. His name has been mentioned many times during the casting of dramas such as athena and hanbando.

“Our management company suggested several big projects to me. They would place the documents in front of me and say ‘Kim Jaejoong, we’ve prepared this just for you.’ Some were really good and some were too much for me to handle. My eagerness is growing as I approach my dream, step by step. I believe there will come a day when all the things I’ve been preparing will come to life.”

Kim jaejoong’s dream has already almost come true. He appeared in the drama sunao ni narenakute with Japanese actors such as Ueno Juri and Eita. The rest will come true once he debuts in a Korean drama.

“I was planning on appearing in a Korean drama pretty soon, but I felt like I needed more time. But I’m not going to rush into it. I’m waiting for the right time to make my entrance.”

He is trying to not rush into things these days. Though all the dramas that were suggested to him were large-scale productions, he just wants to act in a drama that fits him well, regardless of its scale. He knows so well that appearing in a large-scale drama or taking on an extravagant role isn’t what it takes to repay his fans for waiting so long without disappointing them. He believes that even if he receives a small role, he must become immersed in his character and give an amazing performance. He said, “I’m undecided because I’ve received so many offers.”

Exactly one week after the interview was held, Kim Jaejoong uploaded a photo onto his personal Twitter account. It was a picture of his fellow members Kim Junsu and Park Yoochun joking around and grabbing each other by the collar, as if they were fighting. He uploaded the photo with a couple of captions, “How happy I am!” and “They get along so well that it’s becoming a problem!” The words he had said during his interview popped into my head as I saw his tweets.

“I wonder if there was ever a time when I laughed as much and as comfortably as I do now. Everytime I see Junsu and Yoochun and think that it’s only the three of us, my heart jolts. I often feel happy that we are together and that we are making things happen with what we’ve got. I’m glad that fans are beginning to realize this though they were worried at first. Though we know what their worries are, I just want them to watch over us. We’ve held on so far. I always have and always will believe in the power of time."

The full version of JYJ’s Park Yoochun’s solo CF has been revealed. On 20 April, the Dongseo Foods website revealed the Ice Tea Tio TV CF and Online CF featuring Park Yoochun.

In this CF, Park Yoochun plays a popular trainee teacher at an all-girls’ high school. A student holding glasses of iced water bumps into Park Yoochun, and the water spills.

The student, who has a crush on him, presses the glasses filled with ice onto his chest, using her own unique way of expressing her feelings. The girl’s sudden action takes Park Yoochun by surprise and his helpless expression brings about bouts of laughter.
