JYJ Kim Jaejoong is “Receiving guidance on acting from Ahn Naesang” With the Upcoming Drama
The JYJ World Tour which had a splendid run of 2 months was revealed. The “Live Information Connection – Entertainment Communication” that aired on KBS on the afternoon of the 28th visited the scene of the JYJ World Tour Concert in Gwangju that was held at 7pm of the 26th in Gwangju’s Yumju Comprehensive Gymnasium to relay the live recordings.
In the interview that was held before the performance of this day, Kim Jaejoong who will be debuting as an actor through the SBS drama Protect the Boss relayed that he is receiving guidance on acting.
Kim Jaejoong revealed his uncommon enthusiasm for acting, saying: “There are many around me who are giving me much help. I am receiving guidance on acting from Ahn Naesang sunbae-nim.” (T/N: Ahn Naesang is the veteran actor who played the role of Jung Yakyong, the historical scholar, in Sungkyunkwan Scandal.)
Upon being asked whether Park Yoochun gives advice on acting, Kim Jaejoong said: “Yoochun does not give me guidance but he only says that the process (of being in a drama for the first time) will be difficult.” At this, Park Yoochun let out a flat joke of: “Am I a world map (T/N: pronounced in Korean as “jido”) to be giving guidance (T/N: pronounced in Korean as “jido” also)” and received the glare (of disapproval at the flatness of the joke) from the other members.
At the same time, JYJ’s Park Yoochun is unfolding an enthusiastic acting through the MBC Monday-Tuesday drama Miss Ripley and Kim Jaejoong will step out as an actor for the first time by appearing in the SBS drama Protect the Boss. Kim Junsu plans to meet with the audience until the beginning of July with the encore performances of the musical Mozart! that will take place in Sungnam Art Center Opera House.

“… and Kim Jaejoong will step out as an actor for the first time by appearing in the SBS drama Protect the Boss…”
What was Heaven’s Postman and Sunare if it wasn’t him acting?!
Man, I hate shoddy reporting. Research, people!!!
I’m so proud of Jae for saying that. Not many people would admit to needing help. So funny how Jae has made friends with Chun’s SKKS castmates. I’m very much looking forward to what he’ll show us all ^^ AKTF, Jae~!
IKR? I can understand if they say debuting as an actor in a domestic drama. But nooo, they say debuting as an actor, thus negating SNN. Or sometimes, they say debuting as an actor domestically but they seem to forget HP.
Me too. Jae’s upcoming drama will be my third time following a drama(the others being Skk and Miss Ripley) week to week. I usually wait until they are all done, but can’t wait when it comes to our boys. Hope that Dramabeans will recap Protect the Boss.
This statement surprised me too. He’s not an amateur actor; he has acted before, not once but twice.
“What was Heaven’s Postman and Sunare if it wasn’t him acting?!”
I KNOW!! What’s the deal?? Didn’t he win an award of some kind in Japan for his performance in “Sunao ni Narenakute”?? Maybe as far as these reporters are concerned, if it doesn’t happen in SK, it doesn’t count. lol
Unfortunately, media is media all around the world. Accuracy is almost a thing of the past. It ain’t what it used to be.
“Accuracy is almost a thing of the past. It ain’t what it used to be.”
I guess… but what’s up with that?? So we’re all being subjected to 24-7 mass communications’ biased and trumped up “information” and news–I mean, who’s really calling the shots?? Who’s “making” the news??
Just tell me ANYONE, ANYONE but SME.
Ah, my friend, you are looking for honest journalism. That hasn’t been around for decades. Look at the state of media in the States. Ever since the elevation of tabloid journalism, MSM had taken a nosedive. So, I wouldn’t expect it to be any different anywhere else. How else to explain the rise of non-intelligent folks like Sister Sarah and her ilk.
The world is nothing like it was decaded ago. Honest journalism, especially investigative, would never have let a situation like that happening in So. Korea, go unchecked. Granted most aspects of Korean society are in the developmental stage after being ruled by a junta. But if a country wants to advance, it needs informed citizenry.
The superficial is easy to promote because it doesn’t require people to think. Stereotypes rule. So when people judge due to looks and they don’t delve any deeper, don’t expect more. That is the first rule, then you won’t be surprised. It’s the cynic in me.
“Ah, my friend, you are looking for honest journalism. That hasn’t been around for decades. Look at the state of media in the States. Ever since the elevation of tabloid journalism, MSM had taken a nosedive.”
The rise of tabloid journalism…. that phrase struck fear and loathing in my heart, my Wise VE Sister. (and remember, it’s “National Sisters Week!” Take a sister to lunch, not to task! lol
But honestly, all that you wrote above only strengthens my resolve to spirit away Jaejoong at my earliest convenience to a place far, far away where he is known only and always as ‘The Beautiful One.’
People who are looking down their noses at his pedigree don’t DESERVE HIM! Am I wrong?
No, my VE sister you are not wrong. Those who choose to belittle or denigrate him DO NOT deserve him. But, if you do spirit him away, that leaves JYJ with only 2/3 of the gorup left. What then? 🙂
“But, if you do spirit him away, that leaves JYJ with only 2/3 of the gorup left. What then?”
Um…. a brutal schedule of court-mandated visitation?
They always make it as if HP and SNN never happen ….. They really do have selective amnesia
Ahn Naesang – squeeeeee ~~~ I know he’s an *older* actor, but honestly, I found him quite HOT in SKKS.
Squuueeeeeees some more. Gawd, would I love to be in the same room with those two as they discussed nuances of acting…..keels-over/dies. x-x ♥
Must ‘Google Image’ him immediately so I know which one he is. I know which one I hope he is….
Wooo-hooo! He is! He Is! And I thought he was sexy too..
Please don’t keel over and die. We would like to keep you around for quite a while. LOL! 🙂
@ Lilibaiyu and @Buttetfliesarfree
What’s with Lilibaiyu? Does she usually die at the whiff of testesterone from JYJ and Associates?
Bafie, I suggest you keep your old bottle of SMElling salts as we value LIlibaiyu’s presence with us for some time still. 🙂 You need to let her have it when she sees Ahn Naesang in “Protect the Boss”. 🙂
Poor Lilibaiyu…you’re starting to get trolled on almost as much as Junsu! Aint friends wonderful!!! 😉
“What’s with Lilibaiyu? ”
Ah. It’s a question that gets asked so often, by so many, about so much. Let me ponder and expound.
Yes. Specifically with regard to the aforementioned Ahn Naesang, I may be considered, and modestly I say this, somewhat of an expert in various issues pertaining to the series SKKS, owning it as I do and having viewed it three times now. Not to beat around the bush, and sally_b backs me up on this (right, sally_b??) Ahn Naesang is one smokin’ hot commodity. Sure he’s older, so he has that slightly world-weary, I-was-handsome-once-but-life-has-marked-me persona that is just CATNIP to us geriatric shut-ins.
We likee. Do I need to say more? Oh, no I don’t think so and besides it’s time for my hot milk and night time meds.
“Poor Lilibaiyu…you’re starting to get trolled on almost as much as Junsu! ”
lol As I always say, “That Which Does Not trample us deeply into the slime and filth of unremittingly disgusting, never to be washed off repugnant crapola Makes Us Strong!”
Besides, I just got through replying to Mia2 in her post about how much people have apparently taken an actual dislike to Jaejoong and his undoubted charms for bizarre reasons known only to themselves, so I now automatically place myself into Jae’s Category: We who are Beautiful And Damned. There could be worse company to keep.
Hottie, she’s been practicing swooning. It’s the only form of execise she seems to be indulging in of late. I’m not sure, but I hear there are scores for each swoon. You know on a scale from 1-10. I’m sure once she has perfected all 10s, we’ll hear about it. Sssh, don’t let this get around to anyone else. This is just between you, me, and the lamp post. 😉
“Sure he’s older, so he has that slightly world-weary, I-was-handsome-once-but-life-has-marked-me persona that is just CATNIP to us geriatric shut-ins.”
“We who are Beautiful & Damned.”
ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!! Those are just the two sentences I could be bothered to type, but both these comments are killing me!!!! Lili, just in case @Hottie doesn’t bother to re-affirm this in your therapy sessions YOU ARE PRICELESS!!!!!!!
Errr…ummm…having trolled on Lili, would it now be hypocritical of me to mention that I too “swoon” over Jaejoong, & that there is a bona fide rating system for those swoons??? 😀
PS: On the media comments, I hear Britain’s Fleet Street was once THE by-word for quality, ethical news with integrity – in the dim, dark mists of the far past. Now of course, it instantly mean tabloids, lies, scandal’s, even phone-tapping celebrities to get the inside goss…How the mighty have fallen.
“Hottie, she’s been practicing swooning. It’s the only form of execise she seems to be indulging in of late.”
lol How DARE you share my private hell with others! BAFfie! How could you! I thought when you gifted me with an officially licensed JYJ lightstick we were BFFs till the end!
Well, guess what, the lamppost has been spilling its guts and since you asked, although you didn’t, my Swooning Technology is off the charts. I’m being looked at by NASA and “One Life To Live” even as we speak as second or third billing for lucrative speaking engagements. You’ll be sorry. When I do my very own fluff piece featuring the same old 2 month old recycled info about the 2011 JYJ tour, YOU won’t be invited to the after-party!
I hate to break it to you Lili, but Mommy-hen was lovely enough to gift Sammie & me a JYJ lightstick too! I proudly wave mine in the dark while watching the fancams 😀
PS: thanks for the advanced warning that anything between Mommy-hen, me & the lamp post might be spilled elsewhere! Your brave sacrifice is appreciated!!! LOL!!!! I’m REALLY loving trolling on you…hahahahahaha
Dear VE Sister,
We are BFF till the end. Only BFF can tell you the truth! Others will lie to you to curry favor (geez, that sounds like a lead in to a recipe), to get on your good side. But they are not really looking out for your best interests. People who tell you only what you want to hear, don’t care for you. It’s those who are strong enough to weather the storm with you, who have your interests at heart. I would never steer you wrong. Hehe.
Oh, by the way, you do know One Life to Live is biting the dust along with All My Children? I stopped watching American soaps AGES ago, but they will no longer be around. But you keep on perfecting those swoons. If we’re truly lucky, swooning will be added into the Summer Olympics! 😉
“People who tell you only what you want to hear, don’t care for you. It’s those who are strong enough to weather the storm with you, who have your interests at heart.”
Damn. Now I’m depressed. I just did a mental inventory and realized that I have NO ONE in my life who “only tells me what I want to hear.” WTH!? Shouldn’t I at least have ONE?? Man, that would be great. No Bad News or unpleasant remarks about my waistline. Yep. I want one! I wonder where people like that hang out?
“Oh, by the way, you do know One Life to Live is biting the dust along with All My Children? I stopped watching American soaps AGES ago, but they will no longer be around. But you keep on perfecting those swoons.”
Perfect, schmerfect. Swooning is a God given, in born talent I have, kind of like Junsu’s vibrato. It can’t be taught either. You’ve either got it or you don’t. Now as to those mercifully ending U.S. soaps, honestly if my arm was in a trap in front of a tv showing AMC I’d attempt to chew through it to get away. Virtually all American tv except for the History channel stuff, David Letterman and some series’ on HBO (recently “Game Of Thrones” captivated me) I would not watch on a bet.
I watch K-dramas, J-dramas and Korean, Japanese and Chinese films. My favorites tend to be the Korean historical dramas. I used to also watch Chinese historical dramas like “Young Warriors Of The Yang Clan” but not so much now. Overwhelmingly, it’s Korean stuff though.
Oh VE sister, I too love the historicals. My all time favorites – Emperor Wang Ghun, The Legend, and Dae Jo Young, and SKKS. There are others but these top the list. I truly miss my Saturday cheesy Chinese kung fu movies. Those things are a hoot! Jammies still on, easting a bowl of cereal. Saturdays ain’t what they used to be. 🙂
As to finding someone who will tell you ‘what you want to hear’, how about Hollywood and Vine? Or anywhere on Sunset Strip? You’ve been hanging out in the ‘burbs too much. You’re missing all kinds of opportunities. 🙂
With regards to Fleet Street or any other haven for so-called MSM, trying to ‘keep up with the Jonses’ so to speak, has cost just about all the major ex-first class news outlets their self respect. It’s too bad they are not all required to compete for Pulitzer Prizes. Maybe then we might see a return to honest news reporting.
Oh yes, Sally, I find him HOT too…lol
you are not alone!!!!! even in SKKS i found him a hottie lol Even the beard cant hide his appeal. So I google him and BAM! I was right he’s a hottie (Im good at this hehehe) and I like him a lot. He’s a good actor ^^
LOL at Chunnie’s ‘flat’ joke, & the other members glaring at him!!!
You have the talent and the skills, so, ¡GO FOR IT, BABE!
I’m glad many other people really like our boys… ( ｡◠‿◠｡)
Hope Jae’s drama will also be a huge success!!
Agree with you dear….Hope he’ll get the newcomer award next year for this drama
Humble Jae made an appearance again 🙂 fighting, Jae! Wish u all the best for the drama, I’ll definitely watch it.
On a side note:Shtoopid news writer! Do your research well, mister/missy.
I hate it when korean news put aside Jaejoong’s achievement as an actor. Give him credit please. He even began as an actor earlier than any DBSK members, and did pretty well on it.
Aaand, this has been bugging me for a while, why is it korean news reported more of his look, social circle, polls, etc rather than his talent and capabilities? So unfair..
That has always pissed me off too. I don’t understand these people’s dismissal of Jae. They never give him his own credit on anything. “He is a social butterfly. He looks so pretty/handsome” OK, I suppose that is flattering but he is an artist, why don’t they mention anything else? Every once in awhile I’ll hear some review on his singing but that mostly tends to be in Japan and not in Korea.
During the DBSK5 days I’d read non-stop praise on Yunho’s “manly” looks and dancing, Junsu’s singing (justified), Yoochun’s composing/deep voice but….rarely anything about Changmin or Jae. Changmin then got handsome and apparently people are overwhelmed/awed by his height which sounds insanely stupid but that is what some Changmin fans have told me. More credibility would be given if they mentioned his impressive vocal range but maybe they feel that it is a given. Anyways, news about Jae feel (to me) kind of two-faced.
Question: I have been told many times that Jae was highly unpopular in the beginning and that because of this LSM was going to take Jae out of DBSK but fans (or more realistically; their cash) made him change his mind. I definitely know of some uncomfortable moments like that dumb fan that cried because Jae signed her poster and she didn’t like him. What exactly happened? Anyone know?
I was told by my Korean Tour guides, men or women in Korea, they like JUNSU & YOOCHUN more than JJ…Didn’t know why ? Like this lady guide, she said that they find JJ too “flowery” looking…& maybe too of his background..In korea, The orphans that lived in Orphange are just like “2nd” grade people because of roots problem too…Their Society, actually a bit hyprocrates, if I would say…If you are from a rich families backgrounds, no matter, how they do wrong there will never be any bad comments…
That this Male Korean guide, he told mom that he lived in Orphanage from 7 years till he finished his stuidies…His parents left him because they divorced & remarried again…He said he wants to migrate to Australia, he ever worked in Sydney & Melbourne, he liked it there because of Enviroment & society…He doesn’t need to go for Military because he has”no roots”..If someone, has lived in the Orphanage more than 7 years, they don’t have to go to Military…That’s the Laws
Laws…He is being treated like a 2nd grade people in Korea…That’s how it is in Korea….So Sad …I didn’t say it applies to all but this kind of treatment still exists in Korea…Actually I just found out too, The koreans has to work very hard in ordtheir jobs safe
Sorry, In order to keep their jobs safe because life is quite hard in Korea too…Not as good as it looks actually…If you don’t do the jobs being given to you, then tons of people are waiting for the jobs…That’s why, they are so many “hyprocrates’ people fighiting for their jobs…
I was told by my Korean Tour guides, men or women in Korea, they like JUNSU & YOOCHUN more than JJ…Didn’t know why ? Like this lady guide, she said that they find JJ too “flowery” looking…”
Ridiculous. I mean really. The whole thing. All the prejudices. UNHEARD OF here in the U.S.
Well, this is where we international fans will swoop down and grab Jaejoong and spirit him away to the International Stage! We live in the 21st Century! We want him. WE want to make a superstar of him.
Jaejoong–pack your bags.
and maybe thats why JJ loves Japan so much. he’s being looked up there…
“That has always pissed me off too. I don’t understand these people’s dismissal of Jae. They never give him his own credit on anything. “He is a social butterfly. He looks so pretty/handsome” ”
Well. I could write PAGES on your post, needless to say. Jae is intimidating, the way he looks, to many, apparently.
LSM wanted to fire him?? What a laugh. Jae is the franchise. Look at him now. Because everyone else is.
As to the SK media bias against him, I see it too and it makes me just as incensed. Maybe eventually they’ll catch on.
Maybe the 500,000 followers on Twitter will do it. Who knows? The media in general is very SURFACE, happy talk-y, 30 second sound-bites. That’s true in many places. Have you noticed how many different articles and newscasts are using the identical copy in much of the reports on JYJ? That’s lazy journalism, but as BAFfie says, it seems to be the norm these days.
But still, I have to say I’m not the least bit worried about Jaejong’s future. He is a Golden Man, he will always have people who will want to watch what he will do next.
@Della Tanri, Really? They dislike him because he only finished high school?…..That is so idiotic. “Flowery”…..I know that there are women who are a million times less attractive than him on his most I-drank-like-crazy-with-Yoochun-while-dancing-all-night-while-I-happened-to-be-sick-day but that is no reason to dismiss his TALENTS. These people can argue on his looks all they want but his work ethic? His singing, composing, his contributions? Why is that ignored?
Men are stupid in general about this, particularly western men who think he is too pretty and they fear getting caught checking him out. (I HAVE seen this) I’m upset because aren’t men the ones who suffer the most in this particluar case? Women can be fans in any group (SNSD has many male and female fans) but male groups? 5% of the fanbase are male, tops, for male groups. You’d think they would give support to a fellow brother instead of some others I’ll refrain from naming that are far less talented but are apparently better because they are “manly.” Makes me wanna smack an anti-fan…..
@lilibaiyu, It is laughable but apparently true. Maybe that is why Jae fans are so protective. I find it really shitty because they use his unique character and looks to try and prove that that is all he is/a pretty airhead when it so painfully not true. I hate it when they totally ignore/downplay Jae’s talents. I don’t understand fans that claim that this is why they get tired of being a Jae fan, I never get tired of being his fan, why would I? He is a great person and it is those idiots’ loss if they can’t see beyond his face.
I agree with all of your comments. It really irritates me the way, Jae is mentioned in SK media, he’s either represented as a beautiful face, OR as the man with a thousand famous friends. This is soo ridiculous THE MAN IS TALENTED. Hello, the number of songs he has composed, written and arranged for DBSK AND JYJ, directing the world tour in Asia and North America, the rhythmic gymnastics event, his acting in Heaven’s Postman, and Sunao Ni Narenakute. Yes he is a social butterfly but that is what makes him so lovable to people. Dont get me wrong I love Junsu and Yoochun as well but some times its because incredibly irritating the way people de-value Jaejoong’s hardwork,skill and musical ability. HUfff sometimes I just wanna take out my engraved Jaejoong Frying Pan and smack the neitzans!!!!!
Dude I agree with EVERYTHING you have said! It just isn’t fair that Jaejoong is judged cause of his looks I mean seriously it pisses me off. He has so many talents and is gifted in each and every one of them, and lets not even talk about his work ethic which is just amazing. I think people forget that YES good looking people CAN be smart and excel in other things that don’t require looks. This is I think the main reason why we Jae Fans are so protective over him, *sigh* I have to say I am super happy that he is recognized and loved so much by international fans ^_^ at least we know how to treasure him.
” It is laughable but apparently true. Maybe that is why Jae fans are so protective. I find it really shitty because they use his unique character and looks to try and prove that that is all he is/a pretty airhead when it so painfully not true. ”
Oh, I am with you 1000%. It is a profoundly ignorant assumption because it flies in the face of everything one can readily come to know about this man by merely looking into his life and work a bit.
Mia2: ” I hate it when they totally ignore/downplay Jae’s talents. I don’t understand fans that claim that this is why they get tired of being a Jae fan, I never get tired of being his fan, why would I? He is a great person and it is those idiots’ loss if they can’t see beyond his face.”
Exactly. It is their loss. Really, truly I have a hard time understanding these people. But what I know is this: Jaejoong is a deep soul. His beauty shines from the very deepest part of him right on out to his beautiful face. WE need to cherish him and make sure that he gets the message that His People get him, understand who he is and wish him to continue with his creative pursuits. I think that as long as he knows this, he will push on, doing what he was meant to do. An old friend of mine who has seen his pictures has remarked to me that she felt that he was way too beautiful to be given a chance in this world, that in fact he was a captive of this terrible beauty. I disagree. Because he has all of us. And we are vocal and we are not going anywhere.
“Dude I agree with EVERYTHING you have said! It just isn’t fair that Jaejoong is judged cause of his looks I mean seriously it pisses me off. He has so many talents and is gifted in each and every one of them, and lets not even talk about his work ethic which is just amazing. ”
I completely agree with everything you wrote. It’s a well-known type of prejudice. And it’s wrong.
“I agree with all of your comments. It really irritates me the way, Jae is mentioned in SK media, he’s either represented as a beautiful face, OR as the man with a thousand famous friends. This is soo ridiculous THE MAN IS TALENTED. ”
His amazing talent certainly didn’t escape my notice. The first time I heard him sing. I said, “OMG, he’s the new Smoky Robinson!” I was really impressed. I found his obviously stage-managed pretty looks uncomfortable at first (and Thank you, SM, for dressing this poor kid up like a pricey piece of meat when you owned him. I only hope TO GOD that you weren’t farming him out to your cronies for a night they’d never forget. You BASTARDS.)
Aside from his vocal gifts, I always admired his songwriting chops and actually, his acting in those early TVXQ DVDs. But really, it was only when he left SM and we started seeing the Jaejoong unadorned by the “SM Flower Boy Drag” that I finally got to see who he really was, in terms of his appearance. And of course it was very very different. But LONG before that, I saw amazing talent and irrepressible personality, wit and humor. This man is SMART. And sexy as hell, at all times, 24-7. So, World-At-Large: what more do you need?
the more reason why I love it when Japanese media make a coverage on him. I found Korea media stupid (erm…most of the time they were) when it comes to Jaejoong.
nah….girls its okay. We JJ fans just need to give him truckloads of love to compensate the prejudice he’s facing. He had a very powerful fanbase outside SKorea and I believe he realize it. We need to make this ignorance people believe this fact as well. They should know people around the world no matter what the person background is if that person is beautiful inside and out, everyone in the world will love and protect him/her.
the prejudice against orphanage make me go WTF for a while. The children didnt ask to be born as an orphan or end up being abandoned. No child in the world ask for that, its not their fault! Orphanage need to be protected and love not being discriminated upon. Okay what happen in SoKorea there about the prejudice against orphanage is MAJOR SCREW UP. that’s just fucked up.
“Okay what happen in SoKorea there about the prejudice against orphanage is MAJOR SCREW UP. that’s just fucked up.”
You got that right. It’s a provincial, “last century” kind of attitude, back when people didn’t know much about much.
That it’s still any sort of a factor in ANYTHING today is just bizarre and wrong-headed.
You know… I just hate the idea that Jaejoong even has to know about stuff like this. It’s ugly and wrong. He’s worked so hard for so long to please all of these people he doesn’t even know. Why does this kind of destructive prejudice have to worm its way into his consciousness?
i cant imagine what’s the orphanages been experiencing and feeling. They need to deal with emotional adaptation of not having a family and they have to deal with the fucked up society and culture. that’s so wrong. I though SK suppose to be “civilized”, I guess everything have its flaws
I know a lot of people/cultures have that same idea – that somehow it’s the childs fault, their shame or disgrace that they don’t have parents. Like all prejudices, it’s extremely insular, ignorant & frankly downright ridiculous. Who you are is defined by what YOU do, not by who your parents are/were or what they did/didn’t do. I hate to think this has affected Jaejoong, but tbh, I’ve often wondered if the various factors surrounding his adoption & also the way he was treated at sm, are the causes of his almost desperate hunger to be loved & popular. Apparently Telisha reads JYJ3. I really hope she has let Jaejoong know just how much we ifans love & adore him, & how cherished he really is here.
When I first became aware of the stigma of being an orphan or illegitimate in SK, I was also WTF. Circumstance of birth does not determine one’s character. If that was the case, then a WHOLE LOT of folks who come from homes with mothers/fathers, who are Supreme A**h***s, should never leave the house! Your character is derived from the values you are taught and exposed to. So what is the excuse of those from two parent homes, who are jerks by nature.
I have a few family members who are adopted and I don’t even think of them that way. They are simply family, half the time I even forget they are adopted. Looking down on people is a surefire sign of inferiority complex in my book. If you have to look down on others to feel good about yourself, THAT SPEAKS VOLUMES!
But something tells me Jaejoong received enough love from his family to last a life time. I have no doubts he’s self assured to the point that he knows who he is. When you have a backbone that allows you to make informed, intelligent decisions about your own life…you have received the kind of home training that’s made a man out of you. I don’t worry about that aspect of his life.
“When I first became aware of the stigma of being an orphan or illegitimate in SK, I was also WTF. Circumstance of birth does not determine one’s character.

Your character is derived from the values you are taught and exposed to. So what is the excuse of those from two parent homes, who are jerks by nature.”
A 2 parent family? Adolph Hitler comes readily to mind. Especially, he had a mother who absolutely doted on him and thought he hung the moon and stars.
But as to Jaejoong’s character, I read recently that he actually left home at 18 for Seoul to pursue his dreams of becoming a singer. I just love that. He struggled and did various jobs but darned if the boy’s dreams didn’t come true in a big big way! He was brave and determined and he believed in himself. Sounds like his adoptive mom did a pretty amazing job of raising him to me.
Sorry to butt in, but I have actually only ever heard/read that he left for Seoul at 15 instead of 18.
Yes he left home at 15 and trained for three years.
” I have actually only ever heard/read that he left for Seoul at 15 instead of 18.”
Wow, really? OK I stand corrected then. And I like THAT even more about him! 🙂 This was one plucky kid!
15! Imagine that. And I stand by my original statement about his adoptive mom. How incredibly proud she must be of him now. As we all are.
I love Ahn Naesang in SKK! esp. what he did for Yoon Hee…shoot all the actors there I had to look up their past works. I love that show. He is in good hands.
And Chunnie with that whack joke ha ha ha! His joke chunflopped!
debut means first time right? jaejoong have been acting as supporting actor in sunao ni..and receive the award to..it’s not debuting I think,it maybe better saying he return to act after a long rest..
“At this, Park Yoochun let out a flat joke of: “Am I a world map (T/N: pronounced in Korean as “jido”) to be giving guidance (T/N: pronounced in Korean as “jido” also)” and received the glare (of disapproval at the flatness of the joke) from the other members.”
I can picture both of them glaring at Yoochun..hahaha cute*cute*
“I definitely know of some uncomfortable moments like that dumb fan that cried because Jae signed her poster and she didn’t like him. What exactly happened? Anyone know?”
I think I can answer that question, though that event really pissed me off me ends.
I heard, what happened was, SM, with the purpose of finding out the popularity of the 5 members, organised an event where all 5 sat at a table each waiting for the fans to queue up and get their autographs.
At that time, Jae and CM were the least popular among the members. As expected, all the other 3 members’ lines were long and the other 2 practically had only a few fans.
So, the staff there actually pushed a few fans to Jae and CM’s lanes.
Then there was this stupid bitch, whom I shall not say is which member’s fan, was pushed to Jae’s line.
He very kindly took and signed for her.
She, became upset that Jae was the one who signed instead of her favorite and kicked up a fuss!
She cried in front of Jae and said she don’t want his signature!!
In the end, her favorite member signed again to appeased her.
Some Jae fans who were there, cried when they saw the commotions.
The thing is, Jae fans said because there was a limit to the fans who could get the signings of the members and most Jae fans were queuing at the back that’s why they couldn’t show their support.
I heard after the whole event, CM cried and Jae even comforted him. The rest of the members were equally upset.
SM is ruthless!! I will never forget the ill-treatments they placed on Jae! ಠ_ಠ
this story still makes me cry ;~~~;
i feel like hugging Jaejae right now
What a disgusting thing to do. If I ever have the fortune of meeting that fat pig I’ll deck him right in the face!
So that’s the infamous event…I have always wondered about that..that no fan queuing for him saying they didn’t like him ‘cos he’s too pretty. Later, Jae said he would work harder to please fans…

However their fellow country men also like it if JJ will be able to bring lots of money for them.. Whatever JJ touches turns to gold… This male guide said , they like money too much…. Hehehe….
Ah my darling sweet Della_Tanri, that’s what hypocrites do…they show their true selves when money is involved. That’s how we tell the phonies from the real people. 🙂
Yep !!! Money is their main thing…
