“Like a friend, more than a real friend, Neighborhood Young Man, Kim Jaejoong.”
Jaejoong said he is fixing his daily routines and tried to eat his meals properly He said he gained 2kg
The first message said she just watched On The Road, Jaejoong said he hasn’t watch the final version yet.
Jaejoong watched “On the Road” when it was ~80% edited, but he hasn’t watched the 100% edited version yet, so he’s really curious too. He already knows the content, but he’s very curious about the music editing. He’ll watch it last after us and tell us his thoughts again then
Next message asked about Jaejoong’s japchae recipe. He said use sugar. Then told us to search for recipes on Youtube and Naver
Today’s question is “What do you want to do before today ends?»
Jaejoong said he used to drink alcohol before going to sleep but he has changed, he exercised before going to sleep nowadays~
Jaejoong said he kinda felt shy to be with today’s guests.
Guests: ASTRO MJ, Moonbin, Rocky
MJ introduced himself first and he showed a bottle of water from his “room”. Moonbin wanted to be called Bin without his surname. Jaejoong said he’s also the same. Jaejoong told them to call him «Joong hyung».
MB: I like it if people call me ‘Bin’ or ‘Binnie’
JJ: Me too! Then I will call you ‘Binnie’ for today’s show
MB: Great! W-What should I call you then?
JJ: Call me ‘Joong’! Joongie hyung!
They will call Rocky as “Hyuk” for today.
Jaejoong said they’re the first guests
Jaejoong said that instead of being just close sunbaes and hoobaes, he’d like it better if they can be close hyung and dongsaengs.
At the start of the radio show earlier, as the Astro members were introduced, Jaejoong spoke shortly about how Astro and he (and JYJ members) shared the same salon. He said they didn’t really have the opportunity to interact much back then.
As he was at the salon earlier, he asked (probably the staff members at Rue 710) if it’s been 4 years since Astro debut’d. The members then told Jaejoong that it has been 5 years already since they debut’d.
Moonbin said ASTRO has been active for 6 years. Jaejoong was surprised.
Jaejoong and Moonbin talked about their meeting 15 years ago. Moonbin said he was in 2nd grade of elementary.
Jaejoong said it’s fortunate that ASTRO debuted few years ago because new groups nowadays can’t meet their fans because of the situation
MJ liked art so he originally wanted to be an architect but in elementary/middle school he saw TVXQ’s performance video and wanted to be an idol bc he wanted to experience the cheering/clapping of fans when he goes up on stage on a lift and at the end
Moonbin: he’s the main vocal of our team
Jaejoong: how is an architect good at singing too?!?!? isn’t that unfair?!?!
Rocky said he doesn’t show when he’s scared/surprised so he’s very nervous right now (bc he’s a TVXQ fan) but it doesn’t show. He said it’s hard to look into Joong hyung’s eyes lol
Bin says Jaejoong is a really big senior for them because he’a perfect in performing, vocals and visuals
A message said she felt very fluterred knowing the kid from TVXQ MV is meeting Jaejoong. She asked if Jaejoong and Moonbin know what they share exactly the same. They both know they share the exact same birthday and the same Chinese zodiac, tiger
They showed the picture of Jaejoong and Moonbin together. Jaejoong said Moonbin was in TVXQ’s MV and also with them during Starking as little TVXQ. Jaejoong said little TVXQ was a big issue among fans too

Jaejoong asked if they live all together. They said yes.
J: When you’re in group… I’m not sure if you do this… after showering, with just underpants, you all lay on one bed and talk
B: Of course
J: So you still doing it. It’s nice. If I can go back, I want to live together as long as possible, then live alone. Because to think of it, you’ll live alone longer
R: It’s lonely
J: Right. It’s nice to make lots of memories while leaving together
J: Ah… it reminds me a lot of the past~
Jaejoong: I’m sure about this, when we were active together… I’m really sure about our teamwork. On or off stage, teamwork is very important. Our own greed was big, but it’s good. As example in our own room we learn languages, practice singing. Even inside car, we memorized lyric so we won’t make mistake. There wasn’t something like prompter before. Because we sang in Chinese and Japanese too, of course. So that we won’t forget. Next time, if there’s time, I wish to talk more with you all~
