We are going to look into one of K-Pop’s most successful bands, JYJ member Kim Jaejoong after releasing his first solo album now.
Korean people are really lucky. Especially the Korean fans. Because they can reach both their favorite singer and actor at the same time. When the person they love is both a talented singer and an actor, things are easier for them then. Kim Jaejoong is also this type of an artist. Our 27-year-old talent who captured his fans’ hearts through the music group he is in, dramas, and his handsome face that is loved by local and overseas fans. Kim seems like he won’t disappoint his fans who cares so much about him and his new album.
Our star made his debut with TVXQ and now he continues his music life with JYJ. Now, it is time for his solo album. Our young talent’s first solo album “I” was released on February 17th. There are 5 amazing songs in this album. What Kim said about his album is, “I don’t think that I could compose good songs in the hard rock genre so I asked help from rocker Kim Bada. If we talk about the songs I composed, I added rock sounds using guitar and drums. I sometimes had hard times. I thought about the lyrics a lot. Writing the lyrics of “One Kiss” was especially hard. Kim Bada thought the lyrics should be simple and easy to understand but at the same time should give a splendid image. So it was really hard.” One Kiss was released on January 8th and topped the iTunes rock charts in various countries. Kim Jaejoong who achieves success in everything he does also caught success with his solo album. After selling 140,000 albums, his new repackaged album also sold out. Additionally, Kim Jaejoong also became the first male singer who topped China’s video sharing site Yinyuetai for 4 weeks in a row. Lets say “Maşaallah” to him to protect him from Nazar! (T/N: In Muslim countries there is a saying called “Maşaallah“, it basically means “May God protect you from evil, jealous eyes and natures that may access to you or affect you.” And that negative effect is called Nazar.)
A Successful Actor
In the drama called Protect the Boss, he played a role who is clever but proud, cool but thoughtful, and a really handsome man who falls in love with the main actress. He is gaining new fans with his performances in the dramas and movies. He acted in the movies like Heaven’s Postman and Jackal is Coming. He unfortunately fell from 5th floor while he was filming Jackal is Coming but luckily he recovered quickly. We watched him in Dr. Jin drama lately. These days there are no new drama or movie projects from him. Apparently, our star wants to focus more on his music career recently. Read More →
