— Opening ment “As you know him more, the warmer he becomes, Neighborhood Young Man, Kim Jaejoong.”
— Jaejoong said he’s curious about how everyone’s week is. He said he did an interview with VIBE and talked about lots of things. Jaejoong said to just search his name on the VIBE app to read the interview. He also said he did an interview with Weibo before coming to the studio. He is very thankful that he got to do many interviews because it means people are curious aboul him.
— The theme of the episode was “Something you can’t talk about”
First message said she fought with her boyfriend because she didn’t call him and wanted to say sorry. Jaejoong said that because there wasn’t a nickname, he hoped all the couple fighting because of phone call to reconcile.
— Next message said she is hired. She wanted to tell her mom but she didn’t pick up the phone. Jaejoong congratulated her and he was curious where she got hired. He said of course you want to tell your mom first to boast about it.
— Next message said when she was sick a friend bought her porridge but she was so sick and couldn’t say thank you, so she wanted to thank her. Jaejoong said of course we’re so thankful to the friends who care for us when we’re sick. He said it’s very touching. He hoped their friendship would last forever.
— Next message said she asked her manager “Why do you only give me jobse” Jaejoong told the listeners to help their co-warkers loo.
— Next message she said she usually sleeps on her way to work because it takes an hour and asked how Jaejoong’s is. He said he can’t sleep in the car and is jealous of her who can sleep on the way. Jaejoong said he sleeps really well in flight. He said he usually plays with his phone or reads news when he is in the car.
— Next message asked if Jaejoong has a new routine as he has been working in a big company for 2 months. He said he really likes Sunday and because he doesn’t go to school or work in an office, his Monday-blues isn’t so suffer. But because he meets us every Monday, he takes care of himself on Sunday. Jaejoong said he is thankful for that new routine.
First message said she has a different taste than her friend. She likes Hawaiian pizza with pineapple but her friends don’t, so she asked Jaejoong to eat it with her. He said he doesn’t really like it either. Jaejoong said it’s weird to eat cooked fruit, except for tomatoes. But he said he likes Thailand’s Mango Rice but still not sure with Hawaiian pizza, he will give it a try later.
— Next message asked what emoticon Jaejoong usually uses. He opened his own Kakaotalk and showed his own chat room with the emoticon. Jaejoong said it’s very cute, the dog moves. The name of the emoticon is “Mongja’s Life”. He said it seems the creator who has so many videos of Mongja made the emoticon to share with lots of people. Jaejoong said he uses Mongja a lot.
— Next message asked if Jaejoong has a musical he wants to watch. He said the most recent musical he watched was Lee Hongki’s and it was very fun. He was touched and teared up too.
— A comment said “Junsu’s musical”. Jaejoong said Xcalibur starts soon. In Ihe previous musical, Dracula, Jaejoong asked for a ticket from Junsu and he got one but he forgot that he should go to hospital on that day. He said he should watch Xcalibur. Jaejoong asked “Is it the 4th? 5th run? It’s a big project and there are many popular actors. So everyone, I hope you go watch it.”
— Next message asked how to record a vlog from Jaejoong. He said he hasn’t recorded a vlog lately, more like can’t. Jaejoong said he used a selfie stick and recorded himself. But then his staff did it for him, nowadays his manager doesn’t really record him. Sometimes, the manager recorded but didn’t send it to him. Jaejoong said he edits videos when he has free time at home, but there isn’t any video. He asked “Why didn’t he send it, is it because he keeps it for himself?”. There are many contents but his manager just keeps it for himself and didn’t send it, Jaejoong said he can’t understand. Jaejoong’s tips is just to record anything and edit it later. Because it’s a vlog, a video to share our daily life. In editing, put what you want to show and add captions.
— Next message asked Jaejoong to learn to play drums with her. He said he doesn’t like playing drums as a hobby. Jaejoong said when he was in the military he learnt to play percussion for a short while. It seems like a nice hobby to relieve stress but he learnt it as much, so he doesn’t like it. Jaejoong said the drum is nice because it can accompany many other instruments. But for now he won’t learn it. He told her to learn it and send the video later and maybe he will have interest in learning it too.
Jaejoong said “Everyone, do you like flowers? There isn’t anyone who doesn’t like flowers.” He said his favorite flower is rose. In his debut in HUG MV he held a bouquet of roses and it was popular back then. Since then, Jaejoong likes roses and fans give him lots of roses too. Roses can stay long even as dry flowers, he thinks it’s the advantages of roses. Jaejoong said he doesn’t go to the flower market, but he goes to florist often.
— Jaejoong said he hasn’t been to his flower arranging class for a while. He doesn’t think of anything else but how to make the flowers pretty when he does it. And it can be given to others or brought home. It’s really healing. Jaejoong said they have prepared some flowers and would see how it turns out later. He said we shouldn’t think too much about arranging flowers because we can be stressed. He said the scissors are the usual scissors so he wasn’t sure if it would cut nicely or not. Jaejoong said to cut the stem sideways so it can absorb the water well.
— Jaejoong said the purple flowers can be found near Han river and mountains, but we shouldn’t pick them because it’s against the law. Jaejoong said he wanted to just do it half heartedly but he became passionate. He said we can pick out the leaves around the flowers.
— Jaejoong wanted to put the only yellow rose right in the middle. He said he doesn’t talk when he is focused and fans know about it.
— And Jaejoong was done with the flowers. He said it looked okay to be put inside a hotel. He put the flower vase beside ASTRO friends.
— Jaejoong would read the messages about the listeners’ healing items. First message said she has a mirror ball. He said he has it too. His house has amazing lights. Jaejoong showed a video of his living room with colorful lighting. He said it’s pretty and has a moon too. Jaejoong said sorry because it isn’t sold on Naver, he has searched there but can’t find it. He bought it on Amazon. Jaejoong said to just search with “Galaxy” or “Light”. He said to buy the “Made in America” or “Made in USA” one because it lasts long. None of his has broken yet. Jaejoong said he has the one with the falling snow effect and outer space. He said it came fast, only a week from America to Korea.
— A comment said 70.000 won is expensive. Jaejoong said “If you think it will make your home pretty for a whole year, it isn’t expensive”. He tried to compare it with the studio lighting and asked the staff how much it cost. The lighting cost W1.5 million. Jaejoong said it’s a good deal and compared it again to food. He said he definitely recommends it.
— Jaejoong was reading the next message but he noticed the mirror ball on the table. He turned it on and said it’s broken because it’s cheap. The price is only W9.000. He compared it with the W70.000 again saving the cheap one looks like tov. He said he detinitely recommends it.
— Next message asked for a hiking track with a nice view. Jaejoong said if it’s in Seoul, it’s Namsan Tower. There is one near Gwanghwamun with a nice night view too, along Han river, in the Jamsil area with Lotte Tower view.
— A comment mentioned a place. Jaejoong said he went there twice and told to not wear shorts there because of the mosquitoes. Another comment said Namsan tower is now called Seoul tower.
— Jaejoong said if we go to Han River and Jamsil we can see Junsu’s house. It’s high. He sald you can’t open the window if you live there. Jaejoong said we can even open the window of the tall Hoeundae LCT in Busan. That’s the Lotte Tower disadvantage. Then he said Signiel is great, many of Korea’s great people live there. Jaejoong said not to be jealous because you need to ride 3 elevators to reach home, it’s very tiring. He said it will take very long for the delivery to reach home. If you order noodles it will be all soggy. He said it has benefits and disadvantages.
— A comment said to just order room service. Jaejoong said room service tastes different from the food in the neighborhood’s restaurant. He said that Junsu went to Han River and eat instant noodle.
— A message said she likes to go to her neighborhood cafe and today she got cheesecake from the owner. Jaejoong said after he exercises, goes to a convenience store, and drinks a protein shake, it tastes so good. He said there are people who really like to drink energy drinks.
— Jaejoong said there is celebrity-sandwich on SBS that has lots of jam in it. He said he always wanted to eat it whenever he went there before. The Inkigayo sandwich was his favorite.
— Next message said she likes to drive her friends home. Jaejoong said it’s amazing. She asked what Jaejoong’s blood type is. He said he believes that blood type is related to someone’s personality. Jaejoong said his blood type is O. He said when he went to Peru, most Peru’s citizens are all O. The staff didn’t believe him so he told them to search for it. Jaejoong said he didn’t believe it at first either. He read the fact that originally Peru’s citizens are all O, but there are people from other countries too so it isn’t all O anymore. Jaejoong said it’s so nice if he goes to Peru because the personality will match the locals. There isn’t any reason to fight between the Os. Jaejoong said he usually had troubles when traveling overseas but none when he was in Peru.
Kim Jaejoong – We’re
— Jaejoong said everyone asked to play this song in the Music Bar comer, It’s We’re. He said he thought of so many people when he wrote it. Jaejoong said most of us have listened to it but it was played for the first time on Neighborhood Young Man.
I live my lite diligenty
— The message sald she kept pushing away to call her mom. Jajoong told her to just call her mom. He relates that people use being busy as an excuse and only call their moms when they need something. Jaejoong said he contacts his parents ofen. They were watching the show too. His mom can spend 5 minutes talking about where she went and what she did. She explained it in a long way. Then she would give it to his father. And his father said the same thing but with different feelings. They always put the phone on a loud speaker and told Jaejoong the same things. At the end of the call his father always say «Son, what does father always say? Your health is your asset, you don’t need anything else. You should sleep and eat well.» Then his father would give the phone to his mom. And she would ask “Have you eaten?” He said let’s have a l0 mins long phone call with our parents. Jaejoong sometimes purposely didn’t pick up phone calls from his mom because he needs to work too and hope they understand. Jaejoong gave the message sender chicken as a gift for sending a good story.
— Next message sender has a similar name to Jaejoong’s sister. He said his sister gave birth to twin babies that day, they’re very pretty. Jaejoong asked himself how many niblings he has. He said he has so many niblings, it isn’t possible to remember all their names with just one try. Jaejoong said “How many niblings do I have? Is it now 13 in total? Wait, 1st noona has 2 children, 2nd noona also has 2 children. 3rd noona also has 2 children… and 4th noona has no children yet, 5th noona has 2 children, 6th noona has 2 children. Eoh, most of them have 2 children, 7th noona has 1 child, 8th noona has 3 children.” He said his 4th sister is watching this. Jaejoong counted and said “It’s all 14 already! Crazy~ I have so many niblings! Honestly, remembering my noonas and niblings names sharpens my memory.”
— Jaejoong said that his oldest sister and him are 20 years apart. His oldest nephew, his 2nd sister’s son is not even 4/5 years younger than him. Jaejoong said they grew up together. But the nephew won’t accept if he was given pocket money less than W10.000. Jaejoong said their age isn’t much different and he also works in a big company. Jaejoong said he even signed the money. He said some kids even don’t want other than W50.000. Jaejoong said he remembered when his maternal-grandfather was still alive and gave him W1.000, it felt so big. Jaejoong said he still keeps money in a coin bank. He congratulated his sister again.
— Jaejoong almost go to the next message without reading it because the name is similar to his sister. The message said she is too picky for a blanket. Jaejoong suggested her to look for it online.
— Next message said she wanted to throw away her accessories, earrings but she ended up only throwing away 2 because she thought that most of them had memories. Jaejoong told her to try putting each earring on and see if it’s still in fashion. He said some earrings only cost W500. A comment said there isn’t earring that cost W500. Jaejoong didn’t believe it and said it’s sold along the street. A staff told him the cheapest is around W3.000. Jaejoong said it’s so expensive. He told the message sender to just make her own earrings and buy the material on Naver Shopping. He said to make it with beads.
— Next message said she tried to make bingsu and her kitchen was a mess. She thought it’s best to just buy it. Jaejoong told her to just make it herself. He said we can buy the ice shaved machine on Naver Shopping. Jaejoong said if we make it ourself, we can put everything we like. He said even the ingredients are sold. Jaejoong said if we make bingsu instead of buying it, the money can be used to buy lots of earrings. He said bingsu is now around W13.000 – W15.000, she can got 5 pair of earrings with the money.
— Next message said his sister will get married next year and she wanted him to sing at her wedding. So he asked Jaejoong to recommend a song. He said NOEL – Proposal, Jung Jaewook – Farewell. Jaejoong spotted a caterpillar and stopped talking. He is so excited that it’s alive and moving. Jaejoong gave it flowers.
He recommended Jung Jaewook – farewell and Kim Jongkook – One Man. Jaejoong said “You must be nervous for your noona’s wedding. Ah! Or how about our, JYJ – Found You? It will be very nice too~” He also recommended rock songs and said he has hard rock songs too. Jaejoong mentioned G.O.D – To My Mother and it’ll make people there cry.
— Next message asked how Jaejoong started making songs. He said it was autodidact and he doesn’t recommend it. Better to go to an academy and learn from a teacher, then do it by yourself. Jaejoong said each program is different, some programs are hard even if you’re very good in English, there are some parts that can’t be understood. He said it’s the fastest way to learn it from a teacher and nowadays there are tutorials on Youtube too. Jaejoong said composing isn’t about technique but about passion. There are many composers who can’t play instruments too or someone who doesn’t learn about music. He believes if she has the passion, she can make good songs.
— Jaejoong picked up the flower where the caterpillar was and said it’s actually where Junsu’s house is in Lotte Tower. He said it was already 8:13 pm. It’s time for the Neighborhood Young Man to go home. Jaejoong gave everyone whose messages were read each a macaron. He said it’s expensive, it’s worth one pair of earrings. He said sorry for not giving a good gift. Jaejoong gave the one who talked about earrings a set of tteokbokki.
— Jaejoong said Neighborhood Young Man should really go home. He said we’ll meet again next week. Jaejoong said “Next week, will I be alone or will I wear the sleeveless tee I promised before? The weather is slowly getting colder. And will I be with someone? We don’t know what will happen, Neighborhood Young Man doesn’t always greet you all with the same pattern. Then see you next week on Monday.»
He said he did an interview with weibo prior to today’s Neighborhood Youth sched.
He mentioned his interview with VIBE magazine and said to please read it.

Comment: I sleep so well in the car these days.
JJ: i can’t sleep in cars, but i do sleep well in airplanes..

Flower arrangement section
JJ said his favorite flowers are roses. Cause when he debuted he was holding a boquet of roses in HUG MV. Also fans give him a lot of roses too.
Jaejoong: “The flower I like? Rose. In my debut in a song titled HUG, in the MV I held a bouquet of roses. That scene was popular back then. Since then, I like rose. So fans give me lots of roses like this as gifts.”
JJ said that for today’s flower arrangement he’ll be using a small vase so that it’ll not be too big. Also when u cut the stems, cut them diagonally so they absorb water well.
And if the flowers have a lot of leaves, lessen them a little. Also white flowers go well together with purple and yellow ones.
Comment: I can’t go out as frequently so for healing i play music with a mood ball.
JJ: i also have one in my house. I recently posted one in my sns. Let me show you.
Comment: Where can we buy these lights?
JJ: Actually they’re not sold on Naver. I bought it in Amazon. There’s actually a few koreans who use Amazon, but if you search for Galaxy Lights on amazon it will appear.
JJ introduced a ball light you can buy via Naver Shopping. It’s worth about 80k₩ the size fits your palms so it’s not that big.
Comment: What hobbies do you do besides carpentry and flower arrangements?? I like looking at the night sky while listening to music.
JJ: the view at namsan tower is nice at night. There’s this famous place near Gwanghwamun with a beautiful night view of the sky, it’s a short drive away. There’s also a lot of places where you can see the night view around Han River.
JJ mentioned that if you’re in SBS you must have heard about inkigayo sandwiches that celebrities often eat.
Comment: I was soo busy that i missed my mother’s call. When i called her back i got reprimanded and she said i only call her when i have something i need. I’m working hard these days becasue i want to rake good care of my mother.
JJ: doesn’t everyone relate with the letter sender? We can always have excuses that we’re busy. But we’re really not all the time. I think i call my parents often. When I call my mom, we always talk for a long time.
She talks about what’s going on in her neighborhood, we only talk about that for a long time, And when we’re done talking, my mom will give the phone to my dad. And my dad will tell me about how our body is precious and we should take care of it.
Jaejoong has a 10-minute time limit for phone calls with his parents.
His mom talks a lot.. his dad repeats her words. *It’s on speakerphone every time, but they both say the same things.
If he feels like it’ll be a long call, he doesn’t answer because he has to work too.
JJ: our letter sender has the same name as my sister. Our youngest sister who gave birth to teins today congratulations. Having twins are so great right? I now have too many nieces and nephews. Just memorizing their names will keep my mind sharp.
My 4th sister is watching us right now. One of older sister’s kid is close to my age and is also working for a big company.
My nieces doesn’t accept 50k₩ as an allowance cause you can’t buy much with that amount. It costs a lot, but just having a child nowadays is already a blessing.

Comment: I would like to learn how to compose music, but I’m worried how to do it properly. How did the boss started?
