JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong clarified the misunderstandings that surround his ideal woman.

Currently about to debut in the domestic drama industry with the SBS drama ‘Protect the Boss’, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong recently held interviews in Nonhyun-dong, Seoul.

In a broadcasted interview that was aired in February, Kim Jaejoong garnered much attention for his unusual ideal type as he said, “My ideal type is a woman who is like my housekeeper.” He continued to make the hearts of his female fans pound as he jokingly confessed, “If you’re somewhere out there, come to me quickly! I’m dying of loneliness.”

Some reporters found his idea of an ideal woman odd and to this, Kim Jaejoong said, “I think I expressed my thoughts wrong. I was talking about someone who isn’t lazy about housework, cleans well and makes great food.”

Kim Jaejoong also added, “Because I like to clean and cook, I want to be able to do these things with my girl.”

Because JYJ are celebrities, it can’t be helped that there are restrictions on their personal lives. Regarding the fact that he isn’t able to date someone in peace, he smiled and said, “Actually, there are a lot of moments in my life when I feel lonely. Will you introduce me to someone if you know any good women?”

Star Self-Photo: Park Yoochun

Park Yoochun hit a home run in his second challenge in acting as well and succeeded in advancing. It is that he is receiving praise in the recently-airing MBC Monday-Tuesday drama Miss Ripley in which he has again taken up the role of the lead, after he finished the initiation ceremony last year through Sungkyunkwan Scandal as a new actor. He has pulled off even the ardent inner-emotive acting which suffers after knowing the falsehoods of the woman he loves, Lee Dahae, and is receiving the evaluation that he has overstepped the limits of an actor whose origins is that of the singer. Park Yoochun who is stimulating the female heart as he plays Song Yoohyun who is the successor to a chaebol group and has innocence and a carefree attractiveness has revealed the set of the drama filming.

Hello. This is Park Yoochun. As for a while the JYJ World Tour and the filming for Miss Ripley coincided my body was a bit tired also. But as we get such good responses the fatigue just washes away. Even though it is acting that is still lacking you are lenient so I am thankful. In order to portray the sensitivity of Song Yoohyun who is doing his best in order to overcome his wounds, I have for a moment put away “Park Yoochun, the human being” and is only thinking of Miss Ripley as I live. Since I am very immersed in the character it is to the degree that I am worried about the process of coming back to regular life after he drama is over. As the drama is going to its end it is true that I am getting more and more busy. The filing set of our drama Miss Ripley which is run neatly even when everything is flying all over the place—I will show you.

Speech bubble: Will the director-nim also be satisfied with this degree of acting?

1. I am immersing myself in emotions. You know that I am very wrought with worries in the drama nowadays, right? If one were to come to know of the fact that the past of the woman that he loves were all lies, what kind of feelings would he have. This is me getting into the character. Do you not feel the anxiety/tension as if one has stepped onto the stage of “I am a Singer”?

2. I am monitoring the scene just filmed. Even though I have risen on countless stages as I did activities as a group, it is still a bit awkward to see myself acting. Ah, it is not good to have the eyes like that in that scene… Director-nim, let’s have one more take!

3. This is Choi Isub Director-nim who has momentarily stopped filming to give me acting instructions. Since this is a scene that requires expression of such deep feelings it is not easy for me to act. Oh I am sorry Director-nim T_T.

4. This is my having a fun date with Lee Dahae sunbae-nim. Ah, I wish that I could in reality meet with a girlfriend instead of dating in music videos and drams.

5. This is the script of Miss Ripley. You see the highlighter marks that are meticulously checked right? I am an actor Park Yoochun who looks and looks at the script over and over until it becomes ragged!

6. As I was waiting for my turn in filming in the waiting room I fell into a trance of playing by myself. This is what is called the “lazy man’s push-ups.” This is a method used when the body is tired but you feel that you should work out, sometimes.

7. A photo with Zhang Yong sunsaeng-nim who is appearing as my father in Ripley and the CEO of Mondo Group! He is a “big” sunbae nim who waits for me to do well even if I make NG’s.

8. “Oh, Awesome Man!” Do you not feel the wild appeal? This is the true nature of the “male” Park Yoochun. This was a difficult scene because a complicated emotion had to be present along with having to keep your muscles firm.

9. This is the open set that was held in Yongin. Thankfully, in order to see me, this many Japanese fans came. I am so thankful because they watched the filming with order.

10. Choi Wonsuk Director-nim of Team B is teaching me the line of movement. Outdoors filming on a hot summer day is so difficult. The woman behind me is my stylist, who is wiping off the sweat that pours without cease.

11. Sleeping for a bit while waiting for the filming. This is a photo that makes the professional spirit of Park Yoochun shine, who is sleeping with stomach down lest the hair that is already styled may get mussed.

12. A rod-shaped fan that is making the back of my head cool. The staff is really working hard.

13. This is the “Mickey Fan.” It has a Mickey Mouse logo and so we call it a “Mickey Fan.” You do know that when I am working as a group my name is “Micky Yoochun,” right? Haha!

It’s already been seven years since their debut. JYJ(Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu) and their fans both share warm hearts and a need to help others. Maybe it’s because they have spent much time together and overcome many obstacles to get to where they are now.

JYJ have been repaying their fans’ love by giving back to the global community, donating a portion of their income from every concert to an international non-governmental organization(NGO). Watching JYJ take an initiative to do good deeds is enough for their fans to make an example out of them. Fans have been participating in a variety of activities such as rice wreath donations, blood donor card donations and donation drives for people with heart disease.

When reporters began praising JYJ’s fans for their charity work, Kim Jaejoong said with a proud expression, “I’m really proud of them. I know that they’ve done so many more good deeds all over the world than those that are known. Watching our fans and their work makes us feel like we should take a more active initiative in doing good deeds. I’m delighted by our fans.”

JYJ were often seen shedding tears at their Asia showcase, world tour and fan meetings because of the unwavering love that they receive from their fans. And at the center of these stages of tears stood Kim Jaejoong.

In a broadcasted interview, the other members of JYJ stated, “Kim Jaejoong has a lot of tears. Once he starts, his tears just pour out of him endlessly. He sobs as if there are water taps in his eyes that have been turned on.”

To this, Kim Jaejoong said, “In the past, I cried often. There was a period of time when I cried a lot, but I’ve been crying less these days. I think my tear ducts have closed up,” and emphasized that he is no longer a man with many tears.

Kim Jaejoong has been chosen as the member who monitors the reactions of their fans the most. When asked why, his eyes sparkled as he said, “I’m really curious about what they talk about.”

“There are fans who have liked us since our debut but there are a lot of people who became our fans after we started singing as JYJ. From those in their 30s and 40s who became our fans through Yoochun’s ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ to those in their teens who like us regardless of the fact that there are so many idol groups out there, I’m amazed at how much our fandom has spread through the different age groups.”

“Some may believe that monitoring is a tedious chore because of my busy schedule but it really isn’t. I’m really curious about what our fans talk about and about what they’re thinking.”

“(Park) Yoochun’s acting habit is moving his eyebrows a lot.”

This is how JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, who is debuting as an actor through SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’, revealed the acting habits of Park Yoochun.

In an interview with Star News on the 12th, Kim Jaejoong said, “If there is a habit Yoochun has when he acts, it’s that his eyebrows raise when he acts out an emotional scene. He did it when he was acting in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ but you couldn’t see it that well because of his topknot.”

He laughed and added, “I monitored an emotional scene he acted out with Lee Da Hae in ‘Miss Ripley’, and I saw him raise his eyebrows at least ten times.“

As Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun are close enough to be considered brothers, Park Yoochun has been showing brotherly affection to Kim Jaejoong by giving him advice on acting as the latter prepares for his debut in the domestic drama industry.

To this, Kim Jaejoong explained, “Yoochun usually doesn’t explain the details in any matter but he gave me great advice on what he felt as he acted.”

Regarding Park Yoochun’s acting, he said, “I think Yoochun is in his prime these days in terms of his acting,” and “I think he feels at ease when he acts now. I feel envious because I wonder when I’ll ever be at ease as much as he is.“

Kim Jaejoong said that he met Park Yoochun, who was getting ready for ‘Miss Ripley’, at a hair salon on the day of his interview and said, “Yoochun wouldn’t let go of his script, even as he was getting his hair lathered in shampoo, and was memorizing his lines,” and “He said he had only slept an hour, and maybe that was why he had dark circles under his eyes that looked like they reached his lips.”

JYJ Kim Jaejoong is challenging himself as an actor through SBS’s Wed-Thus drama ‘Protect the Boss’. People are anticipating whether he can success as an actor, following JYJ’s other members, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu. Reporter Kook KyungWon (Twitter @k1isonecut) onecut@donga.com

Kim Jaejoong is a jack of all trades (?). There is nothing he can’t do. Aside from being singer, actor, not long ago, he also took care of directing JYJ’s World Tour in Asia and the ‘Gala show of Son YeonJae, the Rhythmic Gymnastics Fairy’. His desire: “I want to challenge myself in everything, except only gag.”

If he has free time, the first thing he wants to challenge is getting Chef Certification. “I think there is a (Dae) JangGeum inside of me. When I taste (a dish), its ingredients come on the tip of my tongue. What was used to make that dish. I’m also at marvelous level (of cooking). Because my mother has good cooking skills, I have grown up by eating delicious foods ever since I was little. Maybe that’s why I’ve come to be able to cook exactly the same dish after eating (that dish) just once. If I go out with Yoochun or Junsu, I’m the one who cook for all of us. Everybody says that it’s delicious. Recently I downloaded the recipe from Internet and made Pork and Pepper Spaghetti. It was the best.”

He said that, with his cooking skills, if he has a girlfriend in the future, he want to cook a delicious deonjang stew for her. “The food I can cook the best is all kinds of stew. If you can put all proper ingredients in the stew and cook it deliciously, it will turn out very good. I can’t wait for it (having a girlfriend and cooking for her). Haha”

*Who volunteer to taste his food? I'm sure there's a line of million girls ^_^*

To Kim Junsu, the musical “Mozart!” was an unforgettable performance he has had. During the earlier half of 2010, He still had no activities since he had left TVXQ. When he was offered to act in a musical, he had wanted to reject the role, as he was worried about being in the unfamiliar musical industry. He tried to put himself in Mozart’s shoes. Mozart went with his father’s wishes, and travelled from Salzburg to Vienna, just to write music for the archbishop. Even though he was a genius, and lived a luxurious life, but that made him fell into deep misery and unfortunate.

The scene where Mozart left Vienna, flipping the high castle walls in search of the “golden star”, he finally lived for himself, and not for his father. Kim Junsu was moved by the song “Why can’t you love me”, sung by Mozart.

Finally, Kim Junsu found himself familiar to the singing and acting techniques in a musical; he perfectly displayed Mozart’s character. He felt blessed, even though he was tired. The audience was also much affected as they watched his performance; when Kim Junsu played the contradicting character of music genius Mozart, the audience laughed together with the happy Mozart, and teared when Mozart cried. When the stage curtains fell each time, the audience would do a standing ovation. This year, during the curtain call in “Mozart!”, he was reminded of that unforgettable moment he had during last year’s performance. The popular idol star Xiah Junsu has successfully transformed into musical star Kim Junsu.

Currently, Kim Junsu, who has performed “Mozart!” twice, is ambitious. Also being a member of JYJ, he would like to try acting in dramas and movies. He would be performing in another musical, which would be different from “Mozart!” and “Tears of Heaven”, and hopes that he would still be able to keep up with his dance steps. He hopes to take a step at a time, in achieving his own goals.

Idol stars of the old and new generation are battling it out in the drama industry on Mondays and Tuesdays. Eric(32-Moon Jung Hyuk) and Park Yoochun(25) are grabbing the attention of their viewers by sharing similar attributes.

In KBS2′s ‘Spy Myeong Wol’ which began airing on the 11th, Shinhwa’s Eric showcased a variety of charms as Hallyu star Kang Woo to leave viewers with a strong first impression in his first drama since completing his mandatory military service. With the beautiful country of Singapore as his background, Eric used his experience of living in the USA to speak fluent English and even showcased his dancing skills by acting out a scene in which Kang Woo rehearses his choreography with his backdancers. In a shower scene, he attempted to capture the hearts of his female viewers by showing off his toned upper body.

JYJ’s Park Yoochun appears in MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’, which airs at the same time as Eric’s drama, and is utilizing the same strategies as Eric. Having grown up in the USA as a child, Park Yoochun showcased his fluent English-speaking skills by giving a speech in English during the drama. He even expressed his worries about Jang Miri through a shower scene.


The person who won the first round is Park Yoochun. ‘Miss Ripley’ was in the lead with nationwide viewer ratings of 14.2% (according to AGB Nielson Media Research) while ‘Spy Myeong Wol’ began with the lowest ratings of 9.6%. On the other hand, SBS’ ‘Warrior Baek Dong Su’ had ratings of 12.7%.

JYJ member Kim Jaejoong suddenly revealed his tough inverted triangle body built!

Kim Jaejoong uploaded a photo on Twitter, along with the tweet “A photo I thought a lot” on the 12th afternoon.

In the photo taken during drama filming, Kim Jaejoong took off his shirt and displayed his broad shoulders and slim waist, presenting the perfect inverted triangle body built. Due to exercise resulting in not much body fats, the smooth and flat muscles gained attention.
(T/N: Article error. I’m pretty sure it’s taken during The Beginning photoshoot and not drama filming. Secretaries will faint.)
Fans who have seen that photo responded one after another with “When uploading such photos, do not worry or hesitate”, “As expected, it did not disappoint everyone’s anticipation”,”Now you are really a man” etc.

At the same time, Kim Jaejoong will be appearing in SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’ that is broadcasting on the 3rd of August, as prince in financial world ‘Cha Mu Won’, displaying his comedic acting skills.

Song Ji Hyo (real name Chun Sung Im), who has gained popularity through SBS’ ‘Running Man’ as ‘Blank Ji Hyo’, has transferred to JYJ’s agency.

A person close to Song Ji Hyo stated, “Ji Hyo signed a contract with C-JeS Entertainment, JYJ’s agency, that began on July 1st,” and “Details of the down payment or the income division of the contract are unknown.”

Though the act of celebrities changing agencies is a frequent occurrence, Song Ji Hyo’s transfer is garnering great interest because she is the first actress C-JeS Entertainment, whose leading stars are the three former members of TVXQ, has signed a contract with. C-JeS have been working with only Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun till now. (T/N: This is false, Park Yoohwan began working with C-JeS before Song Ji Hyo signed her contract).

Though the three members have not yet ended their legal dispute with their former agency SM Entertainment, it has been found that they have been bringing in yearly sales of 20 billion Won.

A representative of Song Ji Hyo stated, “Ji Hyo, who is in the second prime of her career because of her appearance in variety shows, is currently choosing the production that will be her comeback in the domestic movie industry,” and “She has decided not to appear in the melodramatic movie ‘Never Ending Story’ with Eom Tae Woong.”

Then he added, “Junsu is not a picky person. It seems that he can show a very wide variety of music genres.”

He also said, “I have talked with Junsu (about it before), we think that to appear and sing on ‘I am a Singer’ is a great honor and it has a lot of meaning. The songs ranking doesn’t matter. It’s like an honor to appear (on the program), even for only one week.”

Meanwhile, Kim Jaejoong will play Cha Muwon on SBS TV’s drama ‘Protect the Boss’ which will start airing from the 3th next month, co-starring Jisung, Choi KangHee and Wang JiHye.

Doctor (Kim Jaejoong) in Sunao Ni Narenakute of Japan’s Fuji TV. He is a salesman of a medical equipment company and he confesses his heart to Haru (Ueno Juri) with whom he fell in love at first sight. Doctor, who holds Haru in his arms to confess shyly “Joahe” (T/N: Korean for “I like you”) was enough to make the female heart tremble.

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong who has already debuted in Japan as an actor is undergoing an initiation ceremony as an actor through a Korean drama. He is taking the role of Cha Muwon in the new SBS Wed-Thurs drama that will be aired in coming August, Protect the Boss. Cha Muwon is Ji Sung’s younger cousin.

I met Kim Jaejoong who is being reborn as an actor in the office of OhMyNews located in Seoul, Mapo Gu, Sangam Dong, on the afternoon of the 12th. Kim Jaejoong who was the youngest person on the shooting set was a fresh-faced newbie actor who seemed to have forgotten that it has been 8 years since his debut. I talked with him, who was saying that “It is my regular trade after all—singing is easier than acting.”

Q: You did appear in Heaven’s Postman in 2009 but it seems that after Sunao Ni Narenakute there were many fans who were awaiting “acting Kim Jaejoong.” Why was your debut in the domestic acting scene so late?

“I did try to challenge myself (at acting) a bit earlier. But because of activities as JYJ which was my center and due to circumstances around me, I was unfortunately not able to hasten the time. I came to come visit you (as an actor) only now. If I had done a drama in Korea immediately after Sunao Ni Narenakute I don’t think that the anxiety would have been to this degree. It’s been more than a year and the feelings with regards to acting and everything else feels too new. I am trembling as if I am beginning all over again.”

Q: Did you become close with the actors who will appear together with you in Protect the Boss?

“I am the youngest on the set. Also I am a rookie actor. All of them make me so comfortable. I do not look very fresh-faced on the outside (laughter. He is born in 1986 and is 26 this year) but I am very fresh-faced in spirit.”

Q: Before the first filming, did you watch a lot of dramas and movies?

“I have watched many movies recently. I saw Dung Fly, Suspicious Customers, My Lover Who Seems a Gang. I like sci-fi movies also and I find fun movies that deal with stories that may happen in real life. It seems that they were really people living in that situation so I felt that they were amazing.”

Q: I heard that you got acting instructions from the actor Ahn Naesang. Did he give you much advice?

“I came to know him through the Director-nim (Sohn Junghyun PD of Protect the Boss) and received acting instructions about 3 times. He said that “even though lines are spoken through memorization, acting must be done as if real life” but that is quite difficult.”

“I wish that instead of being satisfied I will keep being anxious. I like the tension.”



Q: Which is eaiser, acting or singing?

(Laughter) “Of course it is singing. Singing is my regular trade. Acting is much more difficult.”

Q: Is the method of production of Japanese dramas very different from that of Korean dramas?

“The systems of production are slightly different. I have only had one filming with Protect the Boss and so I am not sure yet. I am filming a drama in Korea for the first time after all. Would it also not vary even more according to the styles of the PD?”

Q: Park Yoochun, a member, is also appearing in the MBC Monday-Tuesday drama Miss Ripley. As a sunbae in acting, what kind of advice did he give?”

“He said that ‘you are going to suffer from now on.’” (laughter) He said that once filming begins I will be tired for a while. As this is really the beginning now, I need to maintain my health very well.”

Q: In the drama, the title of Cha Muwon is “Director of the Headquarters.” Miss Ripley’s Park Yoochun’s title is also the Director of the Headquarters. How is Cha Muwon of Protect the Boss different from Song Yoohyun of Miss Ripley?

“Before we compare the characters, the genres of the two dramas are different. Yoochun’s drama is a serious, traditional piece. We are a romantic comedy. Since the atmosphere of the dramas are so different I hope that the viewers will not regard the two characters to be the same just because the titles of the Director of the Headquarters are the same.”

Q: Then what are the points of similarity with Cha Muwon, the Prince of the Financial World, and Kim Jaejoong, the human being?

“I think the variety in personality is probably similar. Even though I say that, I am not saying that I have multiple personality disorder. (laughter) My actions and my expressions are all different according to whether I am with the members, when I am with the fans, and when I am in front of those that I’ve never seen before. I think the definiteness of the change is perhaps the common trait
(of Cha Muwon and Kim Jaejoong).”

Q: The title of the drama is Protect the Boss. What is the thing that you wish to protect for sure in your life?

“Ah. There are so many. With what shall I begin. First, the relationship with the members, I want to protect as long as I live. I also want to protect the fans. Also I wish that the projects at which I must challenge myself and the hope that stem from in between them will not disappear. I wish that instead of being satisfied, I will keep being anxious. I like the tension. I felt this while I was acting as the executive director of the Asian Regions of the JYJ World Wide Concert and (the rhythmic gymnast) Sohn Yeonjae’s gala show. It is easier in a variety of ways to just appear in works instead of creating them myself, but I want to keep challenging myself without end.”

Broadcast is the means by which entertainers can appeal their existence the most.




Q: The topics that come in conflict continually not merely in dramas but also in life is “love and success.” To Mr. Jaejoong, which comes first?

“Love and success… would they not be proportioned according to age? One could say that “you have succeeded” but in truth there is no end to success. There is no such thing as satisfaction. I do not even hope for the peak. At the very least, before I marry I want to do as many things as I possibly can.”

Q: Weren’t you someone who was on the side of wanting to marry early?

“Even this year I am thinking that I want to marry early. Because my parents are of age, I feel that to marry early is to refrain from being undutiful/thankless. However my sisters say that “your life is important.” Well, does marriage happen merely because you wish it.”

Q: Do you have any plans to sing for yourself the OST?

“As of now I do not know. I think they are in the process but the song does not seem to have been produced. It should be a problem to decide after the song is produced.”



Q: At the time of the first airing of Miss Ripley there was a lot of talk with regards to appearing in variety programs. If opportunity allows, do you have plans to appear on variety programs as promotions for Protect the Boss?

“Our intentions do not come first. (At the reporter who asked “did you not show us a variety of activities despite the limits on TV appearances) Broadcast is the means by which entertainers can appeal their existence the most. But we are fighting having discarded the most important weapon.”

Kim Jaejoong who is taking the first steps from TVXQ to JYJ and again as a “rookie actor.” When I asked him if he has desires/hopes of the “Best New Actor Award,” he answered: “Geez, I don’t even think about it.” Continuing, he renewed his determination: “Since I have begun, I will do my best.”

I become curious as to his future path, as much as (I learned of) his powerful aspirations.
