JYJ Kim Jae Joong′s The Jackal is Coming has been satisfying Japanese audiences across the country.
According to the Japanese movie information site Pia on May 7, The Jackal is Coming ranked no. 2 in a poll for audience satisfaction that took place from May 3-4.
The no. 1 spot went to Emma Stone′s Gangster Squad.
Opinions included, “Jae Joong′s acting was great, and the twist at the end was interesting. The change in story was good,” “It felt like I was seeing Jae Joong in his everyday life” and “Jae Joong′s comical acting as well as his serious side mixed together in a satisfying mix.”
The Jackal is Coming previously was also introduced as a movie recommended to those trying to get over the ‘May Virus’.
JYJ3’s Note: People with ‘May Virus’ are those who don′t want to go to work after Golden Week (a week of holidays lasting from late April to early May).
Translator’s Note: I translated the parts related to Jaejoong only.
JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong first starring movie ‘Code Name: Jackal’ (Distributor: clockworks/shougeto) has been released nationwide last May 3 and has attracted hot attention from the public.
The movie Code Name: Jackal’s thrilling and unpredictable storyline begins with legendary killer (Song Jihyo) kidnapping top star Choi Hyun (Jejung) then continues with a variety of suspense and comedy.
This is the official interview of actress Song Jihyo.
JYJ Kim Jae Joong and Song Ji Hyo′s The Jackal is Coming has been selling out in theaters across Japan.
On May 3, The Jackal is Coming premiered in Japan under the title Code Name: Jackal. On its first day the movie managed to sell out in theaters not only in Roppongi at Tokyo′s center, but also across the country.
Its success was fairly predictable as the 20,000 tickets made available in pre-sales in February were sold out as soon as they were made available, and the behind-the-scenes DVD topped the Oricon chart as soon as it was released.
On May 5 a Japanese media outlet said about the movie in an article titled ′Movies That Will Blow Away Your May Virus′, “This is a movie we recommend to those who have the ′May virus′; in other words, those who don′t want to go to work after Golden Week (a week of holidays lasting from late April to early May).”
Another outlet gave a new name to Kim Jae Joong′s economic value, calling it ′Jae Joong-nomics′.
The Jackal is Coming is about what happens after the legendary killer Bong Min Jung (Song Ji Hyo) kidnaps the country′s biggest top star Choi Hyun (Kim Jae Joong).
