“Park Yoochun Getting Married? I’ll Be The First To Break The News” (Part 1)
“Taking on historical drama without any experience? I think I will 100% be scolded. To be real actor Kim Jaejoong, rather than the safer way, I think it’s alright to challenge a new route.”
I recently met up with JYJ member Kim Jaejoong who is maturing as an actor, at a cafe in Cheongdam-dong on the 6th. Acting in MBC’s ‘Dr Jin’ as flowery military official Kim Kyung Tak, he was, to my surprise, earnestly accepting the criticism towards his acting in the beginning of the drama. He is also clear that he had to present a better self in the future.
“I didn’t meant to receive any recognition through this drama. An actor with no experience challenging in historical drama is indeed a very difficult thing. Though I was not able to perform perfectly for everyone but right now I am able to present, not JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, but another side of mine. I am satisfied with this.”
JYJ members have proved their ability in singing, acting and variety skills and during ‘Dr Jin’ production press conference, Kim Jaejoong said that, “In JYJ, the one who is the worst actor is me.”
Asking him again to grade his acting, Jaejoong said, “Grading should not be done by me. How can I grade my own acting? (laughs)” He said, “Yoochun’s gentle charismatic acting is a different feel from the acting I presented. Everyone has his own merits.”, avoiding the comparison question with Yoochun.
