[NEWS] Kim Jaejoong Responds To Those Who Assume He Had It Easy In The Army
A day after being discharged from the army, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong greeted fans through V Live while on his way to a fan signing event.
During his quick broadcast, Kim Jaejoong mentioned how he’s getting used to speaking conversational Korean again after two years of using military speech. He then admitted to fans how awkward it feels to step back into the celebrity life and apply makeup again.
He started out by asking, “What do you call it again? Eyeliner? Putting on makeup again after two years feels so awkward. During my time in the army, I only applied camouflage cream, but here I am with makeup on again. I’m not used to it, so I was planning on only wearing BB cream for the event.”
The JYJ member also talked about his time in the army, stating, “Some people look at me and think I had an easy service, but I really did try my best. Because I enlisted a bit later than most people, I felt a huge responsibility to work even harder. I can proudly say I was the only Special Class Soldier from my unit.”
When talking about maintaining his looks, Kim Jaejoong said, “While everyone else was eating ramyeon, I didn’t. I lost 14 kilograms. Through a high-salt, low-protein diet, I lost body weight but maintained my face. I think I aged less during those two years. Currently, I weigh around 65 kilograms.”
Kim Jaejoong ended his V Live broadcast by telling his fans, “I’ll greet you again soon!”

[NEWS] JYJ’s Jaejoong denies he had it easy in the military
JYJ’s Jaejoong denied that he had it easy during his mandatory military service.
Jaejoong was officially discharged from his military duties on December 30, and he met fans through the V app the following day on the 31st on his way to his fan signing event. He expressed, “It’s awkward because I was in the military until recently.”
He added, “A lot of people ask me if I had it easy in the military after seeing how I look, but I really worked hard. Because I was older than most in there, I felt I had to do better, so I worked really hard. I was the only special grade fighter in my team. I can say that proudly.”
Are you glad to see Jaejoong back?

Jae is so humble. He’s the only special grade soldier in his team and he kept quiet about this achievement until he’s discharged. Never brag.
His appearance also deceiving. Looking at his beautiful face and fair skin, people wouldn’t think that he’s actually one of the best soldiers in the army.
He is such a sweetheart. That is the only word I can think of to use for him.
He really is, isn’t he?! I’m so euphoric & excited that he’s home & so full of love & adoration for him that I’m having trouble holding it in!!!
Calling all Jaejoong armies, let’s give more love and effort, let’s vote hard and promote so others will be inspired to vote also …
We have been so elated in his coming back to us and get drown to the photo and video being posted..my guilt @kris, taking a breather from voting..but seeing that it be would a great finish for Jae and us to have him win this Golden Disc Award..a great gift from us to have him win..let’s work hard..let’s vote…
Jaejoong Armies Fighting!
Team Jaejoong Fighting!
COMGRATULATIONSSS!!!!!! JJ….WELCOME BACK..YOU ARE BRILLIANT !!!!!
creo que asi se ve muy bien pues demasiado delgado noooooooooo, el maquillaje le sobra por que el no necesita ya que es hermoso por naturaleza y seria bueno que se conservara asi al NATURAL se ve muy varonil
No makeup need, the weight you put on suits you. Looking very sexy and mature. Can’t wait for new album, excited to see how you’ve matured as an artist. May 2017 bring you lots of joy.
We all know what a hard worker Jaejoong is & that he always wants to be the best he can be & do the best job he can. & in all the years I’ve been following him I’ve never once heard any claim that he’s used his celebrity status to get out of something or for an unfair advantage. People trying to claim he had it easy obviously don’t know him at all & therefore their opinions on this are invalid!
J, please don’t lose the muscle weight. Being healthy is more important than being skinny (firm and toned). Happy New Year!
What’s the most endearing about Jae is that he’s doing his best to excell in what he deems to do..that is the first thing that i admire about him..at the same time keepng himself grounded..this makes me more proud of him having that special rank..JJ is awesome in every sense ot the word..looking forward to hearing your amazing voice on your new album.
I feel like a very proud mom. I’ve been here in JYJ3 long enough that I’ve seen how some fans perceived Jae us unhealthy (see booze in him, smoking, partying), weakling, clumsy, too skinny and all that but BAM , he served as an active soldier and was classified as Special Class Warrior/Special Class Soldier, what a great achievement for a citizen and a military reservist. He could have made a drama with his knee injury/surgery, stay too skinny and get a pass for an easy task but he aimed to be THE BEST and if there’s a will, there’s a way. He bulked up to be physically fit as a combatant, studied hard to score 90 and above for oral and written exams, and gave us all those amazing songs/performances while serving in military band. But other than proud, I’m so THANKFUL TO GOD that he completed his MS safely, comeback in good health, free from scandal (I was afraid of a Rain or Seven like incidence), I think that’s the BEST part of it.
He said he lost weight in preparation for his concerts but he also said that he can easily put on back those lost weights if he wants to. Next to his music, I’m also looking forward for his next acting project, please let us see the soldier Jae on screen. 🙏🙏
I know what you mean kris,..being a proud mom, cheering him on, rooting for him and protecting him but he also gives out an aura of a sexy,seductive person..a playful friend, an angel calming your heart..aah, how can he have that kind of charm?..i may not know him long as you do but i immersed myself in Jae’s world..a lot of thanks to all of you here that you are a part of Jae’s world.
I see him as a healthy human being (smoking,partying and booze) the thing is he knows when to stop, pause and step forward in whatever he decided..in a way i guess he lives more in a real world than any of us thought…as we all know he is good in communication skills..him teasing us is a proof of that.
Haven’t we realize that he spoiled us and we spoiled him 🙂 ..a totally give and take relationship…considerate and thoughtful as he is doing military training and serving in military band so we can see him performed at the same time a special class soldier..wow, a lot of hard work…yes, thanks to God he’s back safely.
Way to go kris..i want to see the soldier Jae on screen …and please, please may i request that he do a photoshoot with a soldier concept 🙂
Thank you, Kris and Karenina Anna, for these words of praise for Jaejoong. I have to agree whole heartedly with ALL you said…particularly the proud mom part. I am certainly old enough to be his mom and a bit beyond. This young man is one of the most grounded celebrity people I have ever come in contact with. His family post are perhaps my favorite. Well, I did like Intermodulation too! LOL. I remember reading something Jaejoong said about himself…..when he sees a video of himself on stage…he doesn’t believe it is him, but perhaps someone else. I liked that. This tells me there is a separation between who he is as a person and who he is as a performer. Continue to make us proud of you, Jaejoong !
