On the morning of the 19th, released pictures of Kim Jaejoong have become a hot topic in the online forums. In the middle of filming for the SBS TV Drama “Protect the Boss”, which will air on Augusy 3rd, Kim Jaejoong visited an amusement park.
T/N: The reporter of this article was not aware that the Chinese artist in question, Zhuo Qi Bo, might not actually be an official AVEX artist. Please take any mention of Qi Bo being part of the AVEX family lightly, as we do not know the full case so far.
Kim Jaejoong, a member of the group JYJ, is involved in the controversy of the year over an unauthorized remake of his self-composed song that has been made by a Chinese singer.
Zhuo Qi Bo (Ray Cho), a member of AVEX group China, relased two songs, one of which fans found the chorus to be strikingly similar to Kim Jaejoong’s composed song, TVXQ’s “Wasurenaide”. Fans complained that the remake was created by Zhuo Qui Bo without discussion or permission from Kim Jaejoong’s side, which prompted a quick apology and explanation from Qi Bo.
As the top singer in Republic of Korea, how is the feeling about debuting as a new actor? JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong will be acting as a chaebol successor in SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect The Boss’, challenging his first role in domestic drama. Topics such as comparison to Hyun Bin in SBS’s ‘Secret Garden’ starts the conversation.
Kim Jaejoong said, “It feels like the time when I was a newbie debuting, I think the the crucial part is to adapt to the environment. 10 years of activities and I feel as though I have reached andropause, it is both body and mentally exhausting. Although there are a lot of pressure and burden debuting as an actor, as compared to that, this development of anxiety… it feels good.” Kim Jaejoong’s straighforwardness and honesty were felt through the interview.
Why did you choose to debut as an actor through ‘Protect The Boss’?
After acting in Japanese drama ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’ last year, I have no hurry to plan about acting in domestic drama or movie, thus I thought and researched about it with due considerations. But the schedules and timing were not suitable thus good works were shelved. But after I received the script for ‘Protect The Boss’, I have strong feelings for it suddenly. The plot is very interesting and I feel that the role suits me.
