T/N: Interview Part 1&2 here
[Interview] Kim Jaejoong, “Introduced to a girl, but who is an idol group killer” (Interview③)
I was very surprised by Kim Jaejoong, he said so much honestly without second thought. The manager from C-Jes looked very nervous while watching Jaejoong talk. He didn’t know how to lie, nor does he sound too formal or distant. I think this Jaejoong is far more charming, and he even talked a lot about things that his fans wouldn’t know.
– Did you feel burdensome when filming with the famous sunbae Kim Eunsoo in MBC’s ‘Dr. Jin’?
Burdensome? Not at all. Dad is really nice to me, and watching his facial expression really makes me more immersed with the characters. There were also a lot of expressions and lines that were added on the spot. They were all products of watching dad’s expression. (T/N: Jaejoong refers to Kim Eunsoo as Dad.)
– Why was there so much saliva during your crying scene?
Haha, we also brought this up during yesterday’s staff dinner to celebrate the end of filming. To be honest, there was a lot of saliva, but a lot of sweat, tears, snot and saliva were all mixed together. Ha, there were many reasons, at the time I didn’t sleep for a few days nor did I eat well, the set was very hot. While I was watching dad, immersing myself with the scene, my emotions for dad exploded at that moment, and all that could flow out of my body was flowing out! Haha.”
– I heard you gave Kim Eunsoo whiskey?
Because he really loves alcohol. During our first filming, he said, “it would be great if I can have a glass of whiskey during such a hot day.” And I answered, “I will give you a bottle in the future,” so I prepared a bottle to gift him.
– Kim Eunsoo seems to like a lot of things?
Dad usually cannot hide his love for anything, he will voice his love whenever he feels it. Kim Eunsoo-sunbae originally had a 2G cell phone, and always said while sitting next to me, “my cell phone never has any signal and I can’t contact with you…sigh…”or “I heard someone was going to buy me a cellphone, but I have no idea when that will be happening…” He said these words to me about thrice each, so I immediately went and ordered a smart phone. Even though he never said this in front of me, but I heard that he was showing off his new phone, “So this is a smartphone~ It’s 4G too~” and goes on the internet. I knew he didn’t know how to download apps, so I downloaded them for him.
– You really like interacting with sunbaes?
Sunbaes said one thing before, “when actors first begin to act, they cannot be disliked by people who they act with.” I didn’t especially tried to fawn the sunbaes, but I thought it’s basic courtesy to be on the set first, not slacking off, and regardless of whether if I could act or not, I need to let everyone see that I am working hard and trying.
– Did Kim Eunsoo-sunbae criticize your acting?
He would never do that, he respects every actor and actress’s acting. If someone couldn’t act very well, he would think that it is due to the lack of experience and find ways to make that actor’s acting shine more. He would never say things like “you should act this way…”
– Everyone recommends you and Jin Yihan for the Best Couple Award?
It’s like this every time. Compared to female actresses, I always get paired up with male actors. Best Couple Awards? Of course I would receive it gratefully.
– People say you look like Robert Pattinson?
Oh, I heard about that before. Do we really look alike? He is a westerner and I am of eastern descent, I don’t think we could look really alike.
– When compared with Park Yoochun, who is better at acting?
Yoochun and I are very different. Yoochun is someone who has strength underneath his tender looks, so you can see his tenderness and firmness in his acting. If Yoochun play Kim Kyungtak and I attempt Lee Gak, it would be very unfitting. I think it’s great that the two of us with very different characteristics are in the same group.
– Is your look really handsome?
No, I think I look unique, if that.
– Then who is the most handsome?
Junsu has the best looks. In fact, we have a lot of individual fans in JYJ, and the characteristics of our fans are all very clear. Junsu and Yoochun’s charisma are very different from mine, and Junsu possesses everything I don’t.
– What is your charisma then?
I think there are two parts to it. If we go to another country, the international fans would generally recognize me first, perhaps because my looks are rather unique so they would fan me first. However, the fans that stay by my side in the end are generally not because of my looks but due to my personality that is exact opposite from my looks. My appearance may look like someone who lacks courtesy, but I really am a good young man.
– What is Kim Jaejoong’s belief?
It is very similar to that of Kyungtak’s. I will protect that things I want to protect with all I have. The tattoo on my left chest says Always Keep the Faith, meaning that I want to protect my beliefs. A person’s biggest fear is to lose what he already has. If I lost everything I own, I would still keep my faith. Because I was very fearful that I would lose everything, so I tattooed it on my body and every time I feel myself weakened I would gain strength by looking at it.
– Do you have dreams that you want to achieve?
Not right now, but there are a lot I want to challenge. I really enjoy situation under pressure and love when challenging new things. It would be boring if I can get what I want easily every time.
– Which one is more important? Singing or acting?
This is a difficult question. But as I grow older, my voice will also age, and by that point I don’t think I could keep following the popular music trend. But in terms of acting, when I become middle-aged, there are middle-aged roles that I can play, so I want to keep acting. I wouldn’t know what my music will become in 30 years, but I will probably still be singing then.
– Are there any directors you would like to work with?
I really liked Lee Jaehan diector’s “A Moment to Remember”. And I wrote Junsu’s ‘No Gain’ after watching the movie. There was a line “The room in my heart is getting smaller and smaller”, it was written while watching the movie.
– Plans for military enlistment?
I will go when I should go.
– Any other plans?
I want to take on another drama before the end of this year. I also want to be in a relationship, if anyone wants to introduce girls to me, I want to try too.
– Have you been introduced to girls?
There were twice, but I didn’t end up starting relationship with them. Later on, I knew that one of the girls that I met was an idol group killer who dated a lot of boys in famous idol groups. She was very pretty, had a great personality and was also very rich, but after hearing about her relationships with the opposite gender I didn’t contact her again. Friendship is very important to me. She also dated some of my close friends.
– What is your ideal type?
I don’t really know, I probably will know after meeting more girls. Because I don’t want to just date or have a relationship, but I want to find someone who belongs to me, someone whom could become my woman. However, I don’t want a girl like Youngrae, but rather someone like Younghwi who only cares about me. If Younghwi isn’t just a friend but a woman it would be great. When I was younger I put a lot of focus on girls’ appearance, but looks are really not that important. The person inside is what counts.

wow didnt expect him to say junnie is the most handsome 🙂
wow, he said Junsu is the best looking, awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
all 3 of you are extremely handsome even though Junsu is my bias
I’m actually agree with Jae. All JYJ have straight forward personalities, but Junchan has the ability to show us the most genuine sincere feelings amongst all three, whether in his singing, his dancing, or in his football activities. This might be just my opinion, since everyone has the right to think.,,hehehe.. But when it comes to actual natural handsome in terms of visual, if one have to choose between the three, my choice goes to Yoochun.
jaejoong’s right, even i thought junsu had the best look amongst them. i always imagine fanfics of him more than the other two. everyone in my family prefers junsu best
“The manager from C-Jes looked very nervous” hahahaha this totally happened in his tvxq days too. They all looked so worried when JJ was talking.
I love how sincere he is ❤
LOL….yes I remembered that too…
There was one episode where his manager came up from behind to warm him….I think it was this show where they sat inside a van or something….. 🙂
kkk I watched it!!!…. and from what I saw in that video… when they played with the barbies…… I think I know what kind of girl Jae wanted… But… is it still the same or has changed now? hehe
You mean “Rock of School”…that was hilarious, I laughed so much ^^
Yup, that was the first video I watched where I realised Jae was actually talkative and not cold.
The manager pops out around 6:45. But should watch the entire hilarious video to know how much Jae was spilling out of his mouth XD
Kim Jaejoong is Great Man!!! Really touching when I read the “girls part”. He really really really need to meet the right women to him.. Jaejoong is so mature and great rite now…
sorry , err…who’s that idol killer girl ?
No wonder Jae’s mgr so nervous 😀
JJ YOUR MOUTH SPEAKS YOUR MIND SO STRAIGHT, OMG:P
Agree… Wonder how the two peoples Jae mentioned here felt, I mean Mr. Kim Eunsoo and the idol killer girl….
It seems like Mr. Kim Eunsoo was almost pleading Jae to bought him a new smartphone…. muahahaha……
The idol killer girl was sure have lost a great opportunity back then…
I hope Mr. Kim Eunsoo humorously takes Jae’s words.
In Asia, this is a “culture”. Next month 30/9 is Mid-autumn Festival ( Moon cake festival),
peak peak peak PEAK season to show how sincere you are to ” others” 😛
(Besides Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving , guess 80% of the biz was created between Aug to Sept this year 🙂 )
For the killer girl, perhaps she doesn’t mind being commented. Down to earth ladies will not bump into male idol groups like that.
( just a pure individual opinion, not offending to others)
I was more wondering about this friend introducing him to an idol killer…
ha…ha…look for proper/ professional match maker is better.
hmmm perhaps, but this could probably spread to the public… hmmm I would do it definitely secretly with the help of a friend who has similar or the same values as I have 😉
Hahaha…even jj dislike youngrae’s character.
YoungHwi is better then YoungRae!
Of course you shouldn’t find a girl that don’t see you Jae.
i’m ready oppa, if u want married now! i’m so ready oppa :DDDDDDDDDDDDD
“Junsu possesses everything I don’t.” no, jar, at least not everything. you both have great singing voices ❤ different, but great.
wow..love this interview. JJ is candid here and reveals much. Really hopes that he finds a woman soon, and gets all the happiness that he deserves. Good luck Jae!
It’s joyous to read every of his interviews. So mature and endearing ^^
I wonder who is the girl he is talking about..
For what he says and based on dramas I’ve watched sounds like a spoiled and vain chaebol heir daughter hahaha
Great interview Jaejae. Well done. ^^
His interviews make me love him even more. He is so honest, so frank.
but Jae, did you just diss a Chaebol’s daughter in public
Reblogged this on luminarytriad.
well well well, who knew that jaejoong himself also disliked Young Rae, welcome to the club 😉
lol, the nervousness of his own mangager is relly funny, scared that he would spill too much, but that’s what we like about him, his frankness and honesty
i really liked the comment he made about his fans, because it’s indeed his personality that will keep you hooked as a longterm fan
AND, probably just like everybody, who is that women you dated, i’m really curious (not in a possesive way off course, but in a corcerning curious way )
hahaha!! i think the manager would have a heart attack had he named names…. 🙂 🙂 my jeongie, is so honest! 🙂
I am surprised that Jaejoong is looking for a girl. I say this because there are tons of female singers in the Korean music industry as well as many Korean actresses. Many of them are pretty, really gorgeous. We hear about actors dating women in the entertainment industry here in America daily. I’m sure he meets Korean female entertainers all the time, so I am curious about this. Do they frown on idols dating publicly in Korea?
I’ve heard once that it is not a commen thing in Korea to just go and ask for a date, one kind of have to be brought together by a common friend, I think that why he is saying to be introduced to a girl… but of course I can be wrong ^^ (those folks from eatyourkimchi explained so ^^)
Really a great interview! JJ, we are all looking for that “prefect” someone. My mom always says, that you should look for someone who is goal oriented and is growing vs. being stagnant.
He’s just adorable smart and warm .
I hope you will sing until you are at 80 years old, there will be songs suitable for your voice. Staying together untill then, love you JYJ
Jaejoong can juz grab or snatch someone’s heart with his honest words… JJ’s woman will be the happiest happiest woman in the universe.
All members of JYJ are sincere and honesty, but if I have to choose I would say junsu. Anyways, all 3 of them always say things from the bottom of their heart even though they shouldn’t revealed too much, but they do it not because of anything but because they want to and they want all their audience to know that this is who they really are, and not faking it or forcing. The 3 of them are handsome, gorgeous, pretty, beautiful, and unique in their own way. The 3 of them deserve to find someone that love them for they are, comfort them, show support, bring joy, love, happiness, be accountable, understand them, be by their side, and just be there would give them the strength to move and go forward. I hope, wish, and pray that when they find someone, that person would do all they can to stick with them to the end no matter what, even if there are problems popping up, a lot of paparazi going on, cruel things happening all again, no matter what the causes whoever ends with them would stick with them to end no matter what. The things that the public does to these 3 and to others idols, I hope, wish, and pray that one of these days it would decrease and become less so that they all can go out free, no more fear, no more suffocating, no more stalking, no more of everything to the extreme so that they can be less fear, less suffocating, less stalking, less of everything.^^
Wholeheartedly agreed ^^
Jaejoong, please read Rudyard Kipling’s “IF”. 🙂
I know I’m not JJ, so I hope it’s still ok to answer… this is so beautiful. Sounds like the description of Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun ^^ Thank you for introducing me/us to this poem ^^
You’re welcome. I’ve posted the poem in its entirety a couple of times before. Don’t want to do overkill here. 🙂
Yes, to me, this poem fits what Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu are experiencing in their lives right now. Almost like a manifesto if you will. This poem is a classic. As old as it is, it’s almost as if it has been waiting around for the guys to get to this stage in their lives. I’m glad you like it. 🙂
Hmmm I’ve never seen it… see, no overkill here ^^ (btw, I’m also open for book recommendations, ehem ^^)
I have to admit that I thought that it’s kind of the description of the perfect human being or as we all should be… that would be so great, the perfect world…(which will never happen, I know ^_~… I’m a dreamer, an idealist but also a realist… *drifting away* keke)
What an interview!Very good questions and excellent answers by Jaejoong who is so sincere.If I’m 30 years younger,I would’ve fly to whereever Jaejoong is to meet him and date him.Reading this interview warms up my heart.Just like Jaejoong said that JYJ are 3 different boys who complete each other while together and shine while doing individule activities.Talking about best looking,to me is jaejoong,no doubt.Junsu has the best butt and body line.
So he wants someone who will care only for him? While nice, that is not very limiting. If this site had a way to count a show of hands, I would guess that quite a few ladies would be willing to care for him alone.

You are as always the best and the most considerate of all JJ. I always love and admire his not so subtle ways to promote JYJ, YC, & JS separately. Jaejoong, please know that you have millions of fans who would love to continue to hear your voice for the longest time, please don’t give up on singing because of the blacklisting. We will always love and respect your choices, but please sing & act for us forever. I really wish he considers releasing a solo album or single everyonce in a while….Take of your health have more rest.
I love his straightforward honest interview…
Totally understandable that he would prefer someone like Younghwi ^^ (#random, one of my best friends is born the exact same date as Jin Yihan)
Anyway, I wish him to find this one girl, his ‘soulmate’, this year ^_~
I first saw JJ in Postman to Heaven and thought he was a very handsome guy and good actor. I love how honest JJ is in this article-I think it shows JJ’s depth and sincere personality (which always shines through in interviews I’ve watched online-with English subtitles!) JYJ boys are such great supporters of each other-this is just one more reason to support them always! I watched Postman to Heaven first (JJ) then Rooftop Prince (YC) then found out they were two of a music group with one more member (KJ-I could listen to Junsu’s voice all day =) and was introduced to their music. I hope to support these three for a very long time in the same positive way they support each other.
What is your charisma then?
I think Jaejoong’s character, not only his personality enhances most his physical attributes thus making him the most good looking man (inside and out) for the eyes of his fans. I’ve seen a lot of handsome and gorgeous men in my lifetime, and yes they’re just good looking on my eyes but for Jae I can see and feel it. He’s not perfect and that’s what I admire him most because he’s not trying to be one, he shows us what he really is, he has vices, weaknesses and flaws and that’s make him a perfect human being. A human being is always imperfect.
@kris Oh, but of course! We love that he isn’t it perfect but we strives to present us his best form. What’s the point about being perfect anyway? There is nothing to strive for when reach our limits. ^///^ Oh Jaejoong, how you make a world go round *si~ghs*….
*that he strives to be perfect. Sorry for the typo -///-… At times like these I wish there was an edit button before hitting send D:!
I saw a video not too long ago where the JYJ members were asked what kind of girls they like. Jaejoong said he wanted someone like his housekeeper. Junsu and Chunnie looked at him with surprise and laughed. I don’t know if Jaejoong was joking or not, but he seemed serious when he said it. I hope he was joking.
Was it the video where they answered fans questions from post-it’s? Because he corrected himself immediately, he said it the wrong way ^^ I guess he meant a woman who loves being at home other then one who likes to party and going out all night, but again, I may be wrong.
In this interview Junsu also said, that he would pay attention to the body since the face can be fixed (plastic surgery) kekeke that was so funny, the whole interview was actually ^^
I want to smack him (gently of course) every time he says that he isn’t handsome. Who is he kidding? Jaejoong is the most gorgeous Asian man I’ve seen. He captured my eyes first several years ago, I still find him most attractive now. I think Yoochun is handsome and suave, and Junsu is cute yet charismatic. Each of them has their own appealing traits. Jaejoong is right about his fans though, we love him not merely because of his appearance. He’s matured a lot. It shows on how he perceives life now. He can be very honest and straightforward, but I’m sure he knows what or what not to say.
Reblogged this on dreamalexia.
I really like the part when he talked about composing “No gain” and how the film “A moment to remember” inspired him to write: “The room in my heart is getting smaller and smaller”. I´ve always thought there must be somethig deep behind the lyrics of this song. (of course I think, it was not only the movie, which inspired him but it was also his own experience, something very painful). He´s got a talent to put the pain in words. Sometimes I wish he would be unfamous boy with ordinary life. He´d have better chance to find his fated love. Fame can destroy relationship very quickly. I hope, somewhere in this universe, there is a woman so strong that she can be by his side. Eotoke? Uri Jae ayaya hwaiting 😀
hahaha ~ i bet this is funny…too honest…hope u will find someone that can be ur only woman…hehehe xD
This interview is an honest word from someone who is free from pressure also Jaejoong is an genius idol
poor girl, she shouldn’t date anyone else before jaejoong, she missed the best one xD
thx for translation!
I love his honesty I wonder how much they cut… This is why we love him, you can feel from his words his respect and love for others.
