[TRANS] 110713 JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, “I’m Actually A Pretty Lonely Guy, Introduce Me To Someone”

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?”

[News] 110714 A Series of Self-Photos and Captions By Yoochun Himself

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!

[TRANS] 110713 JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong Says, “I’m Really Proud Of Our Fans Who Take The Initiative To Do Good Deeds”

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.”

[TRANS] 110713 Kim Jaejoong, “Actor Park Yoochun’s Acting Habit Is?”

“(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.”

[NEWS] Kim Jaejoong: “If I have a girlfriend, I’ll cook a delicious deonjang stew (bean-paste stew) for her”

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)

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 ^_^*

[TRANS] 110712 Flipping Over Castle Walls In Search of Golden Star Xiahzart

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.
