Era of JYJ

Are we in the era of JYJ?

JYJ members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu are each excelling in films, dramas, and in musicals, drawing the attention of the fans and the industry giants alike.

First is the member Kim Jaejoong who has made his big screen debut with the movie ‘Jackal Is Coming’. He has demonstrated in television dramas that he is a more than capable actor and he’s ready to expand his potential into films. Kim Jaejoong plays an A-list star in the movie and he hasn’t shied away from making himself look ridiculous to make the character come alive. He’s been praised by the industry insiders for his passion and hard work.

Even though ‘Jackal Is Coming’ is Kim Jaejoong’s first film, he has shown acting abilities much beyond his experience and he portrays his character in the a perfect way, which is sure to hit a chord with the moviegoers. Kim Jaejoong has taken his first step in the film industry with the movie ‘Jackal Is Coming’ and many are curious as to how and if he will make a comeback with another hit at the box office.

At similar timing member Park Yoochun has started appearing on the MBC drama ‘I Miss You’, taking over the character Han Jung Woo from child actor Yeo Jin Goo. Park Yoochun will be playing the main character that lives his live in regret and sorrow for not being able to protect his first love. It’s expected that the actor will make many female fans cry from their hearts with his amazing acting.

Park Yoochun is an actor who gets praised a lot for his ability to express his emotions very delicately through his acting. His acting truly stood out in the drama ‘Rooftop Prince’ and his excellent acting skill is unquestioned. The viewers’ anticipation is high on how Park Yoochun will portray the deeply hurt Han Jung Woo, whose childhood experience still haunts him as an adult.

Lastly is the member Kim Junsu who’s won the ‘Best Male Actor’ award at the ’18th Korea Musical Daesangs’. Kim Junsu starred on several musicals including ‘Mozart’ and ‘Elizabeth’ and he’s an highly regarded actor in the musical industry.

He’s finally enjoying the fruits of his hard work over the last three years as a musical performer and the fans are waiting in anticipation for his next musical.

It wouldn’t be so farfetched to say that it is an era of JYJ at the moment and 2012 has especially been special for members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu. The fans are eagerly awaiting to see what JYJ has in store for them in 2013.

Jaejoong Talks About Love Scandals and Dating Publicly

Title: Kim Jaejoong, “Scandal with actress is wishful thinking… but dating publicly?”

Kim Jaejoong who is a member of JYJ and has made his onscreen debut in a full fledged commercial movie said he gained valuable colleagues in senior actors Oh Dal-Su and Han Sang-Jin through the movie ‘Code Name: Jackal’.

Kim Jaejoong said “The two senior actors encouraged me, saying ‘Jaejoong-ah, continue to do movies” and “Though there aren’t scenes where we appeared together, we talked about many things during filming.”

Previously in the TV series ‘Dr. Jin’ Kim Jaejoong who forged a friendship with Song Seung-Heon said “Though we were nervous and busy concentrating [on the drama] since it was both of our first times acting in a historical drama, we became closer while filming together and we contact each other even now.”

Through a succession of pieces, Kim Jaejoong who palled up with actors said “Now I want to get close to an actress” and got a whimsical concern. “I don’t know what piece I’m going to choose but now I want to get close to an actress. I become friends with actors all the time. Others have love scandals through filming movies or TV series, but why am I not having one?”

To a question about his ideal type, Kim Jaejoong answered “I had a definite ideal type in the past. However, now the standard is getting blurred. But it doesn’t mean I like anyone… Strangely, it is unclear to me.”

Kim Jaejoong also talked about dating publicly. “I can date publicly after I date someone for a long time. Of course, I have had secret relationships and I have talked about such stories in broadcasts. But I think I can contemplate making my relationship public when I have dated someone for at least a year.”

Kim Jaejoong: My waist is actually 27.5 inches but I can inflate it to 35 inches

It wasn’t JYJ Kim Jaejoong or the top star Choi Hyun. There was only the actor Kim Jaejoong who is bright-eyed with expectations of soon having the public release of ‘Code Name: Jackal’ (Director: Bae Hyeong-Jun) the first movie he is starring in.

Kim Jaejoong who diligently acts as Hallyu star Choi Hyun in ‘Code Name: Jackal’ ruined himself literally. Kim Jaejoong here is completely different from the nice man in his previous pieces ‘Protect The Boss’ and ‘Dr. Jin’. While trying to survive, he looks pitiful, behaves in a servile and unmanly manner, though with a handsome face.

His efforts remain evident and untouched in the movie. It doesn’t need point by point explanations how he endeavored for his big-screen debut.

“It was a fresh shock. Because I saw my face in the big screen. Just as seeing myself in the television for the first time was amazing, movie was also the same. ‘Ah, it feels like this.’”

The top star Choi Hyun being kidnapped by the Killer Bong Min-Jung in a motel room is in danger of being murdered. To survive, Choi Hyun claims he is ‘fake Choi Hyun’ and ruins himself as best he can.

Kim Jaejoong who is a Hallyu star in real life and is a member of JYJ neatly managed to act being ruined. It might seem everyone would have dissuaded him or there would have been great pressure but he said with the firm attitude of an actor “I wanted to ruin myself more.”

“Of course my fans know a lot about me, but the public may know my image only as ‘Enigmatic YeongWoongJaejoong’. ‘That dude’s concept is enigmatic.’ I wanted to change this part. I wanted to show that Kim Jaejoong has other images.”

Kim Jaejoong had to shoot the film mostly being tied up with a rope. The locations were various; chair, bed, and etc. The fact that he couldn’t move plus the pressure of his first big-screen debut, gave him a hard time. Because he had to act using only facial expressions.

“It was tough. Because the location didn’t change, I didn’t move. Usually during travel time, actors have a rest, but I couldn’t do so because I didn’t have such time. Especially because I was tied up, I felt stifled that I couldn’t move. Eating meals, going to toilet, and sleeping while being tied up. I wanted to get out of it. Haha.”

As it is a comedy movie, Kim Jaejoong couldn’t help laughing throughout filming and confessed “I made too many NGs”.

“While pretending to be the fake Choi Hyun and singing a song, I put my real-self down. I abandoned everything. ‘Yes, I am now filming Jackal Is Coming’. The director told me ‘Do everything with every voice you can produce. I went out of my mind. Actually, there weren’t much details in the script. The scenes where I just tried received OK sign.”

Here, Kim Jaejoong’s having a trivial self-praise time aroused astonishment.

“The scene where Bong Min-Jung compares between the picture of Choi Hyun’s abs and the actuality was also the same [as the scenes where I just tried and received OK sign]. Protruding my tummy is my special ability. My waist is actually 27.5 inches but I can inflate it to 35 inches.”

In the movie, Choi Hyun is terribly stalked by a Saseng fan. The scene feels like the real Kim Jaejoong is being stalked by the Saseng fan. I wondered whether this scene was created for Kim Jaejoong or it was originally in the synopsis.

“It was originally in the synopsis when I first received it. Even though it is a very hilarious scene, people around me could not laugh because it seems related to me. I hope everyone can just enjoy and laugh at the scene.”

Kim Jaejoong attracted the attention of the public through a kiss scene with the 19 year older senior actor Kim Sung Ryung. He made a quip at the press conference “Though my spirit/energy was sucked, I learned a lot.” Also, Kim Jaejoong had a kiss scene with actor Kim JeeWon in a music video. What is his impression of having a series of kiss scenes that others can’t even have once a year?

“Such abundant kiss scenes. I did it by each age group. Kim JeeWon in 20s, Song JiHyo in 30s, and Kim Sung Ryung is 40s. I got a stroke of luck. Haha. Everyone envied me.”

Kim Jaejoong who is mesmerized by the charm of movies called himself ‘a lucky person’. I suggested a self-promotion for ‘Code Name: Jackal’ to Kim Jaejoong who says that he wants to decide on the next piece and show a new look to fans as soon as possible.

“May you enjoy it with a light heart. There are excellent actors in the movie. And everyone filmed it all of one mind. If you can find even a little piece of fun, you succeeded. Please try to find it. If you can’t, please watch it one more time. Till you can find it, keep trying~”

+ an excerpt from this article: Focus

Regarding the OSTs in the movie, it is a chance to meet Kim Jaejoong as a singer-songwriter. He composed and wrote lyrics to two songs, including the song Bong Min-Jung sings when she discloses that she is a fan of Choi Hyun. Moreover, he sang and wrote the lyrics to the ending song.

“The song Jihyo hums was originally urbane, but I completely changed it as the director ordered me to make it have the ‘90s feeling’. I compose songs in my spare time. Though it is a matter of time, I’m planning my solo album. I record songs in a recording studio in between times so that I can bring it [solo album] out any time. Come to think of it, I really lived life to the fullest in 2012. But what if the end of the world does come? (laugh)”

The Best Friends of JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun

Even though he may be surrounded by beautiful ladies in every project he takes on, there are some people that JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun rather be around and they are his man friends – the biffles, the homies, and the bros.After meeting so many people in the celebrity world, we wonder which lucky stars are called the Huckleberry Finn, Ron Weasely, Dr. Watson, and Hobbes in Park Yoo Chun’s life.

Park Sung Kwang

If you don’t know who he is, Park Sung Kwang is a comedian that appears on KBS’ Gag Concert, currently in a skit called ‘Brave People,’ where he blurts out dangerous truths that could potentially get him in trouble.Most people didn’t believe it when the comedian first said he was actually close friends with Park Yoo Chun, so to prove himself, he uploaded pictures with Park Yoo Chun.

And to further provide evidence that they were indeed good friends, during an award show, Park Sung Kwang, in character of his comedy sketch, blurted out that Park Yoo Chun sleeps in the nude.

When Park Yoo Chun went on to win an award that night, he replied to his friend’s announcement, retorting that he at least wears underwear when he sleeps.

Ryu Dam

Another unlikely pair, but comedian Ryu Dam turned out to be another one of Park Yoo Chun’s confidantes.

The two first met on KBS’ Sungkyunkwan Scandal, but even after the drama closed its curtains, the two kept in touch.

When Ryu Dam called Park Yoo Chun on a show to prove their friendship, Park Yoo Chun was overflowing with aegyo.

When Ryu Dam asked what kind of person he is to Park Yoo Chun, he replied, “An older brother more than a celebrity.”

And thank you Ryu Dam for allowing us to hear Park Yoo Chun’s adorable, non–broadcast voice.

Lee Tae Sung

Although they were ready to kill each other in SBS’ Rooftop Prince, off-camera, Park Yoo Chun and Lee Tae Sung were actually very good friends.The two proved their friendship by posting up pictures when they grabbed a couple of drinks, and even gave each other their autographs.

Their friendship especially shined when Park Yoo Chun’s father passed away and Lee Tae Sung sent some words of encouragement and support.

And only really close friends can take advantage of each other when one is sleeping

Yoo Ah In

Like Lee Tae Sung, Yoo Ah In and Park Yoo Chun’s characters didn’t have the best relationship when they filmed KBS Sungkyunkwan Scandaltogether, but their friendship was alive and kicking even after the drama’s conclusion.While they kept most things secret, the two actors treated fans with a touch of bromance here there, bickering and teasing each other on Twitter with lame jokes and insults.
When Yoo Ah In didn’t pick up his phone, Park Yoo Chun scolded him, saying, “Do you carry your phone as an accessory? I tried to call before going to the US, but it was turned off.”

Likewise, Yoo Ah In kept in touch with Park Yoo Chun despite their busy schedules in and out of the country.

Although Park Yoo Chun has since then closed down his Twitter account, we hope that the two are still staying close, leaving their phones on and sending each other cute messages.

JYJ – Kim Jae Joong, Kim Junsu

It’s a given that these three are close friends – so blatantly obvious that we probably shouldn’t even have to write about them, but we just couldn’t leave Kim Jae Joong or Kim Junsu out of this article.After going through training together, making their debut together, struggling through incident after incident together, Kim Jae Joong, Kim Junsu, and Park Yoo Chun have stuck by each other like glue through all the good and bad that came in their lives.

There are no real words to perfectly describe the strong relationship that they have with each other, except that these three men are an inseparable trio that we sincerely hope will stay friends even after they grow old and grey.

Jaejoong and Hyun Joong’s Friendship


During the stage greeting when Jaejoong said hello, someone with a very loud voice shouted “Kim Jaejoong handsome!” from somewhere. I looked around to see who he was, it was Kim HyunJoong. And then Jaejoong with a very happy face said “Do I know you?” and Hyung Joong said “Yes! It’s me!”.
