The Friendship of Hero Jaejoong and Nexen Oh Jaeyoung
It was the Nexen-LG game in Jamshil on the 1st. On the broadcast screen is Hero Jaejoong. It turns out that he has come to see Nexen’s Oh Jaeyoung pitch. The story is like this: During his elementary school days, Oh Jaeyoung changed schools from one in Seoul to Joongdong Elementary School in Gongju, Choongchungnamdos (T/N: Gongju, Choongchungnamdo is Jaejoong’s hometown).
Those who have switched schools know—just how awkward it is at first. The very first friend Oh Jaeyoung made was Kim Jaejoong. This friend comes to be called Hero Jaejoong in the future. However their friendship was not able to last for long. Oh Jaeyoung again had changed schools to one in Seoul.
Like that, their communication had ended, but in 2004 when 10 or so years had passed, the two reunited– because Oh Jaeyoung gallantly took the “Rookie of the Year” award in 2004, and Kim Jaejoong began his activities as TVXQ. It’s that the communications were able to resume again as both received the attention (from the world) as the new stars of Sports and Entertainment.
Oh Jaeyoung laughs, saying: “If I want to catch up to Jaejoong, I have long ways to go.” Who cares if that is so (or not)—because there is no friend better than a childhood friend. Oh yes, the Joongdong Elementary School which brought them together is also the alma mater of Park Chanho (T/N: a well-known Korean baseball player).

Even as a child, Jaejoong has always been so friendly.
I can imagine cutie Jae being all sweet and adorable…. 🙂
So, making-friends-everywhere-he-goes is our Jaejoongie habit since he was a kid~ ♥
what’s with with jaejoong? even his childhood friends are famous LOL >.<
I remember when JJ was asked about how he became friends with Kim Hyunjoong he said it was because Hyunjoong looked lonely. JJ apparently had a way of becoming friends with people who look lonely ever since he was a kid.
He is so kind <333
Keep that positive attitude Joongie!
That’s the good sides of JJ….He always remembered & kind too…
Jaejoong has a beautiful and caring heart!
I also feel really bad for those people who hang out by themselves and try to become friends with them. Those people in the end always hold a thankful heart.
I was also once a shy loner. I had no friends at school for a whole semester TT____TT but then a nice girl became my friend and I will always be thankful to her.
Jaejoong so sweet since he was a kid ❤
I wish I was his classmate *-* *dreaming*
even though i’m not meet w/ him yet but really i can see the warmness aura from his surrounding coz Jae has something that can make everyone who has connection or relationship w/ him feel a warm and comfortable, his heart really beautifull
Lovely friendship, cute and very warm hearted story. Jaejoong is a very nice friend and a wonderful human being.
