Jaejoong said that today’s guest is his friend a cool actor, Choi Jinhyuk
JJ: It’s a surprise that a big star like you appears on our Radio show
JH: There were articles about my appearance especially since we are close friends. There were a lot of people who didn’t believe (we are friends): “what a surprise”, “How can you be friends (same age)”, “It’s obvious that you (Jinhyuk) are older”
JJ: Why wouldn’t they believe it?
JH: Probably because of my voice, and my image due to the nature of the roles I play but also because you were originally an Idol and you look younger (than your age). So everyone thought I was definitely the hyung. When I said before I was friends with (same age) Song Joongki and Kim Jae joong everyone was so surprised and I remember feeling uncomfortable
JJ: It’s just that your physique is great and your voice is deep that’s why people may think you are older. But we are friends indeed, And since you are an actor you have a lot of experience and play a diversity of roles so you look more mature.
JJ: How do you feel with me being the DJ/host?
JH: It feels a little awkward since we spend most of the time at home confortably dressed, having a drink (soju). It’s definitely more confortable. But today, it’s the first time meeting at work, right?
JH: That’s why it felt a little awkward. I’m getting used to it slowly
JJ: Aren’t you totally confortable now?
JH: I’m totally confortable
JJ: You are a famous actor, but I have seen you being confortable a lot I feel awkward seeing you ou TV. I watched you in “My little duckling” on YouTube. It was really funny. You were more like what I know of you
JH: That’s right! I actually feel wronged, my image is of someone strict and cold but actually I have a childish and stupide side too. So I had a lot of thoughs when I was cast in the show to show my real personality or to keep my image as an actor
JJ: I’m glad you made that choice (to go with his real personality) more people need to know you. Actually these days people like to see actors’ real personality.
JJ: A lot are asking how we became close. We actually met right the day before military service. There was one person that both of us knew, and two of the people he knows, that are going to the military at the same day, are spending their last night (before enlistment) at different places. At this occasion, (he thought) let’s have everyone meet. However Jinhyuk came to where I was.
JH: Actually I’m a very shy person so I can’t go first (take initiative). I was personally a big fan of you and I’ve heard a lot of people saying you were manly and have a great personality so I was curious. And after having some alcohol I got a little bold, maybe if I didn’t drink it would’ve been hard for me to come since you were with close people, I thought may be interrupting. So using alcohol as an excuse I came to you and so we became friends.
JJ: When I was in training, the first letter I wrote wasn’t for a friend nor for family…
JH: That was really touching
JJ: I wrote a letter to Jinhyuk who was training in another center
JH: I still have it, remember I took a picture of it and send it to you. It’s so precious to me. Please don’t miss understand usbit’s not like we like each other but a friend and a colleague I was very thankful. Since I was late to go to the army it was hard and I felt lonely. And you wrote all of that (things he went through), things like: “Don’t hurt your feet during the march, use pads if it hurts…” I never received anything like that even from a female. It warmed my heart so I still remember it vividly.
JJ: I thought a same age friend enlisted the same day as me. Personally, I had a really hard time, so suddenly this thought crossed my mind: “How hard would it be for that friend too”, so I wrote you a letter. (I thought) “He must be feeling the same as me” especially since we were with friends who were 10 years younger than us..
JJ: (read a comment asking if he wrote him back) You didn’t write me back, right?
JH: I wrote you back indeed, but I didn’t know how to ask for the address
JJ: That’s right, usually the addresses of training centers, though they existe, usually aren’t revealed. There wes no where to find it no matter how hard you looked.
(Comment: write him back now)
JH: This is a talk we can have after about 3 bottles of suju. It’s embarrassing now
JJ: Now it’s embarrassing. So after that, we have been keeping our friendship like that for that long. Is that enough (for an answer)?
(Comment: What is your secret for getting closer to anyone)
JH: This is something I also want to know, since it’s hard for me I feel jealous (of you)
Jaejoong makes friends as they drink together and tells them “bottoms up!”
JJ: I don’t know if there is a secret. I just… For example, anyone usually wear a fake frame even once (he means people don’t always show their true personality especially professionally), so I work hard to take that (frame) off
JH: That’s why you fed me that much alcohol that’s why you keep saying one shot. You keep watching me until I drink.
JJ: I think the work of getting to know the other person is very important. It’s weird to call it a job, but I work hard getting closer to others as soon as possible.
(Comment: Please say compliments about each other)
JH: Personally.. (playing BGM) what is this, it’s suddenly so cringe. Jaejoong is very considerate. Why do I suddenly feel like crying. Anyway, Jaejoong is thoughtful towards others and I feel like it’s something I should learn, and like I said before I feel jealous of. The fact that you can get closer to others easily is something I can’t do so I feel awkward with people I don’t know well. So I feel jealous of you. Now say something (good about me)
JJ: What to say, You are a friend of too many good qualities… Jinhyuk from the outside has a great physique and is very handsome and cool and from the inside is more cool. He is the same from the outside and inside. He is soft and very human. He is very charming. In his case. The more you dig the more comes out, that’s a charm as well.
JH: You are surprisingly very talkative
JJ: He is also a good son. I think of myself as a good son towards my parents but I noticed he is one as well. And he is professional, he takes good care of himself before getting in a new project: diet, less alcohol, training..
JH: The comments are saying: “are you two in a blind date” also someone in the comments also said I look drunk, I didn’t have any alcohol! I feel proud and very happy to be here with my friend so it shows up!
JJ: It’s so fun today. All what we said today will be found in the Internet here and there so we became prisoners of the compliments we’ve just said
JH: I should be careful of what I say. I’m suddenly getting scared
(comment: Enjoyed your historical drama. The story of going back in time was very fun (means Dr. Jin). If you go back in time where would you go and what life would you have?)
JJ: You appeared briefly in that drama, right?
JH: I was fooled by the staff. They said: “You only need to work hard for 3 days, we will film quickly” but I ended up filming for 8 days. It was very fun. That drama did well. As for me I don’t want to go back in time. Never thought of it
JJ: Me too I want to stay in the present. I’m enjoying my life right now. I of course have good and hard times from the past, and even if I may feel like going back to fix those hard times I don’t want to do it. It’s because I survived and fixed well those hardships that I am here today. I don’t want to redo it.
JJ: Everyone is agreeing in the comments
JH: (comment) Jaejoong should now live happily
JJ: I’m happy
JH: He is happy! I’m keeping an eye on him
JJ: Thank you
The next messaged was read by Jinhyuk, it is asked about what fill up their fridge? Jaejoong said ice cream has too much calories.
Jaejoong said when he went to Jinhyuk’s house he opened his fridge and it was full of side-dish from his mom.
Jaejoong said his fridge is filled with lots of drinks Like water, soju, makgeoli
Jaejoong said Jinhyuk likes singing and remembers Jinhyuk singing at home. Jinhyuk said let’s not talk about it here because he was kinda drunk
Jaejoong said they have karaoke machine there. And will listen to a song as they prepare for the karaoke. Jaejoong introduced the song, as a song from Jinhyuk’s drama, Rugal
Jinhyuk said he can sing before. But he didn’t expect them to prepare the karaoke machine. Jaejoong asked Jinhyuk what song he wants to sing. Jinhyuk said it’s better to choose a popular song, Emergency Room.
Jaejoong said that people must not expect that Jinhyuk can sing. Jaejoong asked if Jinhyuk has a plan to appear on King of Masked Singer. Jinhyuk said he was, before the military enlistment, he missed the timing. Jaejoong said they went to karaoke before.
(comment: If you look at your friends there are those who you think of when sad and lonely and those who you think of when happy! When do you think of each other?)
JH: For me all of these times. I’ve come to you and talked when I was in a really hard time last winter. Even if we share hard times, we also enjoy spending time together. We really have a lot of fun, more than you can imagine.
(comment complaining about here male friend who likes drama a lot and she ends up forcing herself to watch it! How to do with a friend with different preference)
JJ: Do you watch drama?
JH: I watch only my drama. Thought I don’t watch drama but I end up watching popular ones to know how they did become famous
JJ: I don’t watch it too.
JH: Oh one hour has already passed? It’s very embarrassing because I’ve hardly appeared in a radio show. But as I’m with Jaejoong I felt that I was talking with him at home. It was a lot of fun.
JJ: Me too. I’m so happy to be with you here.
JJ: Being so different between friends is quite hard. But I think it’s harder for male and female to be friends
JH: I think it’s a little hard
JJ: I do have few female friends myself, but my surroundings don’t understand it well. “How can the two of you be friends?”. But it’s possible, we have no feelings (towards each other). But we can meet and have a cup of tea
JH: I can’t understand that. I don’t have such experience
JJ: People have different personalities. I think it’s fate to find a precious friend so try to match your personalities, it maybe good to keep that fate.
(comment: How do you restrict yourse from eating when hungry(during a diet))
JH: I watch mokbang
JJ: Wouldn’t that make you more hungry?
JH: When I hear ASMR I feel sleepy. You must watch it while lying in bed
JJ: I can’t resist (hunger), so I work out a lot or fill my stomach with sweet potato.
JH: Oatmeal is pretty good as well.
Today’s night story: “I thought about who is the most precious person to me in this world. Of course, excluding my precious mother and father, my only friend from elementary school, my first boyfriend who thought me what desperate love was, my one friend from college who diligently listens to my worries these days… Coming to my mind in such order, did I have that many precious people?
I thought: “I’m a happy person”. But suddenly I was curious, when wondering about precious people, “to how many people would I come in mind?”. Can I too be someone’s precious person? Even if not completely precious, just to cared about, at least I want to be a good person”
JJ: About today’s story, to think who are one’s precious people. I think everyone in the world think about that. But to actually put them in order seems impossible, she said she felt happy knowing she had many precious people, that’s right, if you think closely, and realise “Ah! I have many precious people” a time will come when you will be like: “Ah! I lived a good life”. Everyone, before going to bed, think about who are your precious people
Jaejoong listens to ‘Restless’ by BIBI every night to fall asleep these days, he realized there can be such thing as lovely restlessness, which made his heart flutter
Jaejoong said he will be alone tomorrow and he asked listeners to send lots of message
