His agency shared the first teaser picture for his comeback album "BORN GENE," which was announced to be a mix of Rock and Ballads. He appears with a colorful casual look in a cool pose, which made fans expect an unusual concept from him.

*** Jaejoong’s latest work feels more joyful especially the opening track “Nobody Like You”. This track is so delightful. Born Gene is a rare species: both playful yet great. Whether because he’s been absent from the studio for so long or simply because Jaejoong’s grown more self-assured as an artist, Born Gene feels like an incredibly rare offering in the

 

world of K-pop.   :rubchin:

*** Jae Joong spoke about vomiting on the street by himself with a lot of people around while he was featured in webtoon illustrator GIAN84's YouTube video. It was their first time meeting each other, and they had some soju together. GIAN84 said to Kim Jae Joong, "I heard that you drink really well. Is that true? How many bottles of soju can you drink then?" Kim Jae Joong answered, "Yes, that's right. I mean, I just love drinking so much. Recently, I went to a Korean barbecue place. I had some soju and samgyeopsal (grilled pork belly) there. I go and drink at a Korean barbecue place by myself a lot." Then, GIAN84 asked if his liver was okay; Kim Jae Joong's answer was, "I get a check-up every year and doctors told me that my liver's very healthy. Once, I went to one of those small tented restaurants on wheels in Gangnam-gu, and downed a soju bottle. And do you know what happened? I suddenly had cramps in my stomach. I quickly stood up and ran outside. As soon as I was out, I threw up. I threw up on the street. and there were so many people there. I felt really embarrassed. I wanted to hide somewhere so badly."   :piggie:

*** Although JJ canceled his concert in Japan he showed good manners towards fans until the end. Some fans still visited the site where the concert was scheduled to take place, Kim Jae-joong showed sincerity by greeting them on stage. He bowed his head 90 degrees, “A horrific accident happened in Korea and it’s heartbreaking. The announcement of the concert’s postponement was delayed due to a lot of thought and consultation with the staff until the end. I kept thinking carefully because I knew that I was the only Korean artist who was scheduled to perform abroad. I’m sorry I couldn’t keep my promise with you.”    :ohboy2:

*** Kim Jae Joong  revealed recently when he appeared on a Japanese program that he spent a lot of money to build a mansion for his beloved family. He surprised the panelists by revealing that he gifted his parents a house worth a huge amount of about 6 billion won. He said that his dream was to buy a house for his parents, who struggled to raise eight daughters and one son. The house is a country house with one basement floor and three floors above ground, and it looks luxurious from the outside. The interior also has a floor height of 7m, a massage machine, a dining table worth 40 million won, and a sofa, adding to the comfort. In addition, there is even an elevator installed inside the house for his parents. There is even a hot sauna where they can relax. I'm sure his parents will be proud of him. He's

 

such a good son.   :popcornjackson:

*** JJ has spoken up about having been previously charged additional tax TODAY, March 9. His agency C-JeS Entertainment released an official statement expressing his stance regarding the fact that he was fined 100 million won (approximately $75,600) after a tax investigation by the National Tax Service in 2020.  :Ohboy3:

 

 

Read the full statement below:

During the tax investigation in 2020, some of the revenue generated from [the artist’s] activities in Japan was omitted, resulting in additional taxes, and he has paid 100 million won in additional taxes.

 

At that time, he reported tax on sales and paid it dutifully, but there was a time difference in the settlement process while traveling back and forth between Korea and Japan. Some of the amount that he reported as necessary expenses was judged to be unrelated to the business, so after confirming that additional tax had occurred, he paid it immediately.

 

This was only due to the difference in interpretation of tax law which distinguishes business expenditures from private expenditures, and there was no intention [of tax evasion] whatsoever.

Kim Jae Joong Explains Payment of 100 Million Won in Additional Taxes: “Not Intentional, Due to Omission of Revenue from Activities in Japan”

JYJ member Kim Jae Joong explained why he had to pay a large amount of additional fine in an irregular tax investigation.

Regarding the report that Kim Jae Joong was fined hundreds of millions of won in a tax investigation, his agency C-JeS Entertainment stated on March 9th, “Additional taxes were incurred during the 2020 tax investigation due to the omission of some revenue from Kim Jae Joong’s Japanese activities, and he has already paid 100 million won in additional taxes.”

 

The agency explained, “Kim Jae Joong reported and paid taxes based on the sales at that time, but there was a timing difference in the settlement process between activities in Korea and Japan, and some of the declared expenses were judged to be unrelated to the business. After confirming the facts, he immediately paid the additional taxes.”

 

They emphasized, “This was only due to differences in tax interpretation between business and personal expenses, and it was not intentional.”

Earlier on the same day, the New Daily reported that Kim Jae Joong had been subjected to an irregular tax investigation and fined a large amount of taxes by the Seoul Regional Tax Office in 2020. In the meantime, most of the planned tax audits conducted by the National Tax Service are cases of tax evasion by exploiting cost handling, and Kim Jae Joong’s tax evasion was raised among them.

Kim Jae Joong Reveals His Home and Everyday Life for the First Time on TV

 

2023031601001266200147481.jpg

 

The 55th episode of Channel A’s Men’s Life These Days – Groom Class featured a glimpse into the house and daily life of Kim Jae Joong.

 

He said, “I’ve never had a camera that observes what I’m doing, and it’s also my first time showing my house.” Han Go Eun then wittily chimed in, “Isn’t that because you haven’t been seeing anybody?”

 

However, the singer replied, “I am seeing somebody,” and when Jang Young Ran asked if he meant his fans, he answered with a laugh, “How did you know that?” bringing laughter to the set.

 

He further mentioned, “Based on the information from the Japanese CDTV, I was ranked as the number one South Korean celebrity who is most desirable for marriage. However, I found out that two members of BTS were ranked lower than me and immediately realized that there must be some mistake with the chart.”

 

Regarding the fancy design of his house, Kim Jae Joong explained that he intentionally designed it to not look like a typical house because he was worried that he wouldn’t want to go outside if it was too cozy. He also mentioned his refrigerator, which is usually full of food, saying, “I know it could be a problem when it comes to marriage, but I have eight sisters. I get kimchi from my mom and my sisters’ mothers-in-laws.”

 

In the episode, viewers got a glimpse of the celebrity eating his own homemade kimchi soup and showing off his flower arrangement skills. Soon after, he went to a traditional market for grocery shopping and drank brewed rice wine at a must-eat store inside the market. Afterwards, he took the leftovers and returned to his house.
