JYJ Kim Jae Joong is ‘Spider Tak’

With the blistering heat melting away everything in sight, JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong managed to find some shade to hide from the sun and decided to have a little fun with it.

On July 31, Kim Jae Joong tweeted, “Spider Tak.”

The picture attached showed Kim Jae Joong, dressed up in his character costume, crouching below a building with his arm sprawled like Spiderman’s signature move.


Kim Jae Joong is currently acting as Kim Kyung Tak in MBC’s Time Slip Dr. Jin.

While the picture was funny, a fan comment proved to be funnier, saying, “You’re not wearing tights, and therefore, this picture is invalid.”

class="blog_h2 entry-title"JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong beats the heat by performing hard


JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong, who appears on a TV series, recently talked about how he beats the heat.

On July 31, MBC’s weekend series Dr. Jin recorded a fighting scene in the 36 degree Celsius weather. Kim, who plays the role of an officer, had to wear a battle uniform made out of cotton, and had to shoot the scene for a long time.

A spokesperson for the series says, “Since Kim is an officer, he has to do rehearsals with the other action actors for about one or two hours so he can make the scene look real. It’s hard to stand still in this hot weather but he didn’t rest while he checked his movements and performed the scene perfectly.”

Kim’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, says, “He is fighting against the heat in a historical series uniform. He has an ice box, ice pack, big fan, and small portable electric fan, but they are not that helpful.”

As a result, staff members al have various ideas for beating the heat. They made a small tent to make shade and wore two layers of sleeveless shirts to absorb sweat fast and put a cool sheet on their skin to get rid of sweat and feel cool.

Kim says, “I sweat a lot even I just swing my sword a few times. But I think it helps me to portray the desperation in the battle scenes. Since I’m so into this series and shooting the battle scene so hard, I forgot about the hot weather.”

The series only has two episodes left, set for this weekend.

class="content-title" JYJ Kim Jaejoong on Set of “Dr. Jin” apple-snapple-YUM August 1, 2012


On July 28, JYJ member Kim Jaejoong posted a photo on his Twitter while on set of MBC‘s drama, “Dr. Jin.” He commented the photo saying, “Father Hansoo,” implying a word play for “hansoo,” which means “moves,” or “to be cut above.”

The meaning of the title is explained in this goofy photo. The photo shows Kim Jaejoong wielding a sword over his on-screen father, actor Kim Eung Soo, who retaliates by grabbing the sword with one hand. While Kim Eung Soo is holding the sword high above his head with one hand, Kim Jaejoong is charismatically gripping the sword on the other end. However, this seemingly serious photo is comical due to Kim Jaejoong’s surprised look and their poses.

Upon seeing this photo, netizens responded by saying, “The impression of wielding a sword,” “Father Hansoo has moves,” and “Both of them are very adorable.”

JaeJoong's receives more love than the drama main lead?


Once again, Kim Jaejoong is receiving tremendous love from the viewers for his drama couple.
In MBC’s weekend drama Dr Jin, Kim Jaejoong is paired up with an actor, instead of an actress. The drama shows the close friendship between Hong YoungHwi (Jin Yi Han) and Kim KyungTak (Kim Jaejoong).
In the 19th episode, Kim KyungTak was obliged to deceive his best friend, YoungHwi for the sake of his father, Kim ByungHee (Kim EungSoo). KyungTak found out from YoungHwi that his own father would benefit from Lee Ha Eung (Lee BumSoo)’s document. He went to look for it and was successful. However, the situation caused YoungHwi to become suspicious of KyungTak and he sensed that KyungTak was a double agent.
YoungHwi wanted KyungTak to say that he was not an agent, but KyungTak said while concealing his sadness, “Now, I realized the worlds that each of us want to protect are different.” However, YoungHwi wanted to believe that KyungTak till the end and he painfully said thank you to KyungTak when KyungTak said that it was a lie.
The viewers are more interested in KyungTak and YoungHwi than any other male-female couple. They are supporting KyungTak and YoungHwi’s friendship by saying that the “TakHwi couple” is like a compound. The netizens felt more affection towards the “TakHwi couple” than Jin Hyuk (Song Seung Hyun) and YoungRae (Park Min Young).
Actually, Kim Jaejoong’s couple pairing in Dr Jin is not the first time that a drama couple involving him became a sensation. In last year’s SBS drama Protect the Boss, he played the role of director, Cha Muwon who was interested in Choi Kanghee, but failed in gaining her love. However, he became a couple with Seo Nayoon (Wang JiHye) with the viewers’ enthusiastic support.
Cha Muwon and Seo Nayoon were named the “Namu couple”. Although they only became a couple in the latter half of the drama, they received more love than the Jisung-Choi Kanghee couple.
To this, a representative of the drama said, “The co-actors/actresses who were paired with Kim Jaejoong became increasingly popular as the drama progressed. I think it has to do with Kim Jaejoong’s charisma that attracts viewers. They like charismatic, three-dimensional characters more than characters that are simply good or evil.”

On August 2, Jae Joong uploaded some pictures on his Twitter account with the comment, “I couldn’t sleep for two days. I wasn’t acting at that time.” In the first picture, Jae Joong is dozing off on the set. It seems like he fell asleep in his costume while he was waiting for the next scene to be shot. In the second picture, it seems like he’s unable to keep his balance as he has fallen in to a deep sleep. People responded: “I feel so bad to hear that he couldn’t sleep for two days.” “It looks like he fell asleep without even realizing it.” “Cheer up!” Jae Joong is currently playing the role of Kyung Tak in MBC TV’s drama series Doctor Jin.

JYJ’s Jae Joong recently attracted a lot of attention from viewers by showing off his perfect abs.

In the episode of MBC TV’s drama series Doctor Jin that aired on August 5 at 9:30 p.m., Kyung Tak gets hurt while he was trying to protect Byung Hee (played by Kim Eung Soo).

His best friend Young Hwi takes him to Jin Hyuk (played by Song Seung Hun), but Kyung Tak says, “I don’t want to receive treatment from you even if I have to die. I don’t want to make my life depend on you.”

However, Kyung Tak decides to get treatment when Young Rae (played by Park Min Young), a woman he loves, appears and says, “I cannot cure the wound in your heart, but I want to cure the would on your body. That’s the only way I can apologize to you.”

Kyung Tak eventually decides to get treatment from Young Rae but says, “I don’t want to be under anaesthesia. I don’t want to be unconscious in front of you.” When Kyung Tak shows his wounded part, he shows his perfect abs, attracting many viewers’ attention.

In the preview of the last episode of the series, Kyung Tak tries to save Young Rae, who is in danger in the battlefield.

A staff at the filming set stated, "It was a very important scene for Kim Kyung Tak, so Kim Jaejoong stayed focused and gave his best while filming. Even after filming was over, he was so emotionally stirred that he could not stop crying. I was even worried that he was going to pass out."

Kim Jaejoong stated, "It was really said. Even after the scene was over, tears did not stop coming out so I realized that I was really deeply into the character of Kim Kyung Tak. The actors and staff members are trying their best so please keep watching until the end."

Jaejoong wore fake abs for the scene in Dr. Jin. No wonder the abs look so unnatural. Glad filming is over so he could move onto other projects!

  • Secret to JYJ unity? “We talk a lot, both good and bad things.”

  • “A while back I was having a hard time so I wanted to hear the members’ voices, but YC & JS didn’t pick up my calls. I got to talk to JS but YC didn’t even reply to the text I sent him.

What I have now will disappear anytime, but always have to keep the faith till the end.” Apart from the chest, at the back he also has member’s English names.

  • “Instead of eating rice, I just take food supplements when I’m busy. I’d rather sleep than eat. When the brain is tired and can’t memorize my lines, I take omega-3 (laughs)”

Reporter’s Comments:

  • Seems like JJ went to the interviews dressed casually. He went wearing simple clothes and said to reporters while smiling “It’s hot”.
  • KJJ walked in the room and introduced himself and said he was glad to meet all of us.
  • His skin is exceptionally smooth.
  • Kim Jaejoong may have started as a singer but throughout the interview, I could feel how passionate he is towards acting.
  • Unlike other idols, Kim Jaejoong’s answers during the interview are sincere and well-thought.
  • Despite his hectic schedule, he is always the first one to arrived on set.
  • JYJ members have been active in acting, musicals, concerts but the public can not see the talented singers that they are.
  • JYJ members always said in interviews that they want to go on stage. I hope they can do that soon
  • Kim Jaejoong has received a lot of love from actors/staff for both Protect the Boss and Dr Jin.

  • He is the youngest among the actors and is considered the mood maker of the group.
  • I was impressed at how passionate Kim Jaejoong is towards acting.
  • I had prejudice towards JYJ songs by thinking it will sound the same as the rest of idols. Then I saw their con. My view changed.
  • I was able to witness their amazing singing and dancing performances. They can create their own songs and they balanced each other out.
  • I was disappointed that not a lot of people was able to see what I witnessed.
  • Jaejoong showed up in the interview with no trace of tiredness.
  • Kim Jaejoong carves his own path as an actor. What’s most important to him is to become a better actor rather than getting lead roles.
  • We are looking forward to seeing Kim Jaejoong’s growth in the future.

class="entry-title"JYJ’s Jaejoong discusses his relationship with his juniors


JYJ‘s Jaejoong held an interview after the last shooting of his drama ‘Time Slip Dr. Jin‘ and discussed his relationship with his juniors.

The interviewer asked Jaejoong, “It has been a while since you have been on a music program. How do you feel when you see other singers on music programs?

After a momentary pause Jaejoong gave a short reply, “So, they are on TV?” The interviewer then asked, “Have you ever felt that you want to appear on music programs again?

Jaejoong answered, “I want to appear on music programs.” He continued, “When I talk to my juniors, it feels like JYJ have become [strangers]. I feel like we have become rare seniors to our juniors. The juniors look at us in wonder when we run into them, since it’s hard to see us on TV. Our juniors told us that when a new song or album by JYJ comes out, they seek it out on purpose and download it to listen to us.

It has also been revealed that even though he cannot stand on stage, he has been enjoying listening to and seeing the performances of his juniors. Jaejoong shared, “My manager likes SISTAR, so I listen to a lot of their songs. I listen to what my manager listens to, and I like their songs. SISTAR sings well. For male singers, I like B2ST‘s new song. I saw their ‘Inkigayo‘ performance too.

Jaejoong has not put off composing as he’s been composing songs while filming his drama. When asked about what kinds of inspiration he received while playing Kim Kyung Tak in ‘Time Slip Dr. Jin’, he replied, “They were harsh songs, so I deleted all of them because they were sad. The songs created were all too sad.

He brought good news by revealing JYJ is currently preparing for their new album saying, “We are preparing for a new album that will be released in the first half of next year.”

class="entry-title"Jaejoong discusses JYJ’s teamwork


After the last shooting for MBC‘s ’Time Slip Dr.Jin‘, JYJ‘s Jaejoong held an interview at a cafe in Gangnam where the veteran idol shared his two-cents on the recent controversies regarding teamwork within idol groups. He commented, “Honestly there aren’t any idol groups that do not have problems.

Jaejoong added, “Idol groups are not family either. Plus when there are many members, there are bound to be members who are closer and connect better with each other than others. Having problems within a team is inevitable.

He also revealed how JYJ sustains such a strong bond with one another. He stated, “We definitely talk about the good things, but we also talk about the bad things,” and added, “Eric hyung recently posted a picture of Shinhwa on Kakaotalk, and when I commented, ‘It’s good to see you guys together, it’s really cool,’ he answered, ‘We are pretending like we are close.’ I think the reason he can say something like that so freely is because they are really close. Our members are kind of like that too.”

The idol star expressed his affection towards his members, adding, “When all three of us are together, it feels complete. I’m full of confidence (when I’m with them). It’s better together than alone, so when I’m going to try harder than I did when I was alone.

JYJ's Jaejoong shares his thoughts on potentially winning a newcomer award for "Dr. Jin"


Although JYJ’s Jaejoong has already been a singer in the entertainment industry for nine years, he is still relatively new to the world of acting. In fact, his most recent drama, “Dr. Jin,” is only his second drama project and first historical drama. However, despite having not had much experience with acting, Jaejoong still impressed viewers with his outstanding portrayal of his complex character in “Dr. Jin.”

As a result, because of his impressive acting, Jaejoong has become a favorite in winning the newcomer award at the MBC drama awards ceremony later this year. When asked to share his thoughts on possibly winning the award, he said, “Well, if I win the award, I will feel really honored, but if I don’t win the award, I will still continue to work hard at acting. But I still want to receive the award if possible because an actor only has one shot at winning a newcomer award in his entire career.”

Jaejoong was also asked what he would do if he wins the award, to which he answered, “If I win, I will donate money to help renovate the subway stations near my fans’ homes! Actually, I’m just joking. But seriously, if I receive the award, I will stand up on stage, raise my hands, do the victory sign, and shout ‘Thank you!’”

With viewers already recognizing his acting skills in “Dr. Jin,” Jaejoong may have a good chance of receiving the newcomer award, and if he does, fans may look forward to a cute victory pose from the oustanding singer and actor.

[iNTERVIEW] Kim Jae Joong Says Young Hwi is More Like His Ideal Type

Kim Jae Joong dished on his ideal type, and it’s not Young Rae of Dr. Jin.

The singer-turned-actor, who finished filming for the MBC drama Dr. Jin and is enjoying his time off, recently met with enews and said, “I want to date someone. I don’t want to just date, I want to date someone that can be mine, my girl.”

In Dr. Jin, Kim Jae Joong has been making his viewers fall in love with him as a man who loves only one woman, namely, Young Rae (Park Min Young).

His role is also close friends with Young Rae’s big brother, Young Hwi (Jin Yi Han), but some viewers, to everyone’s amusement, have actually been saying that he goes well with Young Hwi more than Young Rae.

Kim Jae Joong knew of the reactions, and said, “I always have weird chemistry. I go better with actors than actresses….”

When asked about his real ideal type, he became serious and emphasized, “I don’t like Young Rae. I want someone who has eyes for me. Someone who thinks only of me like Young Hwi…. If he was a woman, not a same-sex friend, I mean. I used to care a lot for looks when I was little, but I don’t think looks are that important. What’s inside is more important.”

The final episode of Dr. Jin, which will show the last of Kim Jae Joong’s character Kim Kyung Tak, will air on August 11.

Kim Jae Joong in the meantime plans to meet with officials in L.A. with his fellow JYJ members, and spend his vacation there.
