Previously from Kpop Planet’s Interview “Ask Your Idol” Link, Kim Jaejoong said:
Q 5 (Ann, United Kingdom) : If you were given a chance to collaborate with international artists, who would it be and why?
Jaejoong: Wow, I would love to collaborate with L’Arc-en-Ciel and Maximilian Hecker!
JYJ3’s Note: Seems like Kim Jaejoong and Maximilian Hecker met each other in Seoul while Maximilian traveled to S.Korea in March 2014 for his two concerts in Gwangju and Daegu
Actually we know for sure Maximilian Hecker wanted to meet Jaejoong after he knew about Jaejoong’s interview thanks to a fan who send him this Link, Maximilian said to us, he wanted to exchange ideas with Kim Jaejoong^^

Wow!! I am always amazed at JJ’s networking. As usual, I quickly looked up for MH (sorry I didn’t know him before) and now are still playing his melancholic dreamy songs. I think I know why JJ wanted to collab with him 🙂
I’m proud of you JJ first as a very good listener and a friend who knows nothing about boundary :P. Secondly, I’m proud of you as a multitalented star who always know what he wants and works hard for it!. Hopefully your dreams to collab and be on the same stage with Hyde (L’Arc en ciel) and MH will come true!
Does anyone know when Jaejoong’s second (or third) solo album will be released? Ah…please do not forget about his album ,,,,,we are waiting patiently!
It’ll be nice if they can collaborate. Jaejoong’s music has matured over the years. Can’t wait untif he’s discharged. Miss him and his singing voice so bad.
I think Maximilian would be extremely lucky to get to collaborate with Jaejoong. 🙂
that was in march of 2014 maybe they DID collaborate for his new album 🙂
OMG when the military service will end ..But imagine if the two already collabrated in JJ next album :D!!!!
That’s amazing, the fact that Maximilian Hecker wanted to meet Jaejoong was an honor. He is an established artist, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximilian_Hecker) 13 albums (2001-2015) 8 of which are studio albums, 12 singles, Jan 2010, established his own record label Blue Soldier Records, August 2012, German publishing house Schwarzkopf & Schwarzkopf published Hecker’s debut as a writer.
Wow, he must be one of JJ’s inspiration. Listening to some of his songs, I can imagine how awesome it will be a hybrid of KJJ/MH musical artistry. They have some common denominator of their works.
Their eye expressions are so similar, deep look with beautiful eyes.
I guess I’m the only one then not liking his work…. ok, I’ve only listened to SEOUL, actually not even the whole thing, cz it was aweful for me… taste differs ^^
he is not my musical type either.
Now I’m confused, is Seoul a song? I thought it’s just a collection of clips on his trip to Seoul thus at 3:00 there’s that Jaejoong’s text.
I even heard some Korean songs in it.
