Exclusive Interview: <Triangle> Kim Jaejoong, “If it can make the viewers smile, it’s okay to mess up my image”
Kim Jaejoong revealed his feeling about the airing of <Triangle> in an exclusive interview.
MBC’s new special project <Triangle> had its first airing on the 5th of May and has climbed to the top of the Mon-Tue drama viewer ratings.
In <Triangle>, Kim Jaejoong plays the middle brother, the infamous lower-class gangster in Gangwon-do, the rebel of the casino – Jang Dongchul (Huh Youngdal). From the first episode, he has captured the attention of the viewers with his strong presence.
Kim Jaejoong, whom we met at the filming set, revealed the reaction of people around him, “My friends watched the drama and kept sending me similar captures of messed-up Youngdal that they took from TV. The members of my family also changed their SNS profile photos [into Youngdal’s messed-up images]. I’m not sure what kind of scenes I will start in the future, but every time my messy image appears, they (friends and family) will act that way.”
He added, “If the viewers can enjoy the drama even just a little bit, if my messy image can make them laugh, I’m satisfied. You can expect more in future scenes.”
