Among many words that can describe Kim Jaejoong, there is “Networking Master”. His friendship network transcends national boundaries. Especially Japan, the country that he calls “my 2nd hometown”, is the place where Kim Jaejoong has gained many special connections.
He shares a warm friendship with many Japanese celebrities like Yamashita Tomohisa, Koike Teppei, Shirota Yuu, etc. Jaejoong introduced his friends, “Japanese entertainers are not showy just because they’re stars. Many of them are simple and honest.”
Especially, in case of Yamashita Tomohisa, they understand each other and their personalities also have many points in common. That’s why they’re exceptionally close. When Jaejoong went to Japan for a short vacation in April, they met and had a good time together riding the helicopter and playing at the amusement park.
Kim Jaejoong who is famous for his love for others also meets various classes of people in Japan. On all such occasions, he always say, “There are many things to learn from anybody. Especially when I go abroad, I think that the world is so wide indeed and realize that many people in many areas are working hard to make a living.”
Kim Jaejoong has many interests in fashion business. He even attempts to meet people working in that field. In addition, he often takes a walk around Harajuku Street with his friends when it’s less crowded and visits the restaurants. Every time he comes to Japan, these things bring him little moments of happiness. Among places that Jaejoong frequents, he especially loves the Meguro-gawa (River) flowing along the center of Naka-Meguro Station and Odaiba.
“It’s the places covered with my precious memories. When I go there, I feel like my soul is soothed. If I come to Japan, I go to those places sometimes.”
