Kim Jae Joong Pulls Off Hanbok At Any Age

Kim Jae Joong revealed some photos of himself wearing hanbok in a completely different setting.

He tweeted on May 21 a photo with the caption, ‘I wore hanbok this time, too.’


In the photo, Kim Jae Joong is shown as a little kindergarten student, blowing the candles on a two-story cake at a birthday party with his friends. The cute kid Jae Joong is wearing a red hanbok top with a gold crown, and has his mouth puckered to blow the candles.

The reason Kim Jae Joong touched on the subject of hanbok is because he has to wear hanbok for his upcoming MBC period piece Dr. Jin. Kim Jae Joong will be acting as the police bureau officer Kim Kyung Tak for Dr. Jin, which will air its first episode on June 6.

Netizens who saw the photo left comments such as, ‘He was born handsome. So cute’, ‘It seems like he would’ve been a mischievous boy’ and ‘I saw the preview for the drama and it looks great.’

***I wonder if JJ has special someone right now. Ohhh…….these selca photos……..he looks bored maybe without his other members. Poor Jaejoong…I know he can’t get some rest right now because of his hectic schedule. But he looks like he really lost some weight looking at his jaw line. I wish Jaejoong had more time to sleep. I command you to sleep Jaejoong! Don’t overwork yourself. But, he is still cute. I hope there will be a gif of this (9) pics. JJ’s voice is amazing like always. Just listening to him sing reminds me so much of the reason I like Jaejoong. Wahhhhh…………….dimsum…….yummy! So lucky those Taiwan fans who came to the fanmeeting... He looked a bit Japanese for me or is it just me? I heard 2,500 fans attended the fanmeet.

***Another addicting song from him aside from the one he sang in his last drama. Beautiful. Jaejoong’s voice is very soothing. Moreover when you hear him sing the song live (no lip-sync), the emotion is right there. I like the song. This song is so sad makes me CRY. Although I don’t understand it but I can feel it in his voice. His voice is really one of the best in Kpop industry. His beautiful voice captivates me. He’s a man of many talents.

(News) Content of JYJ JaeJoong's bag exposed, earning in 10 million in 2 hours!


Korean idol group JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong’s charm really has no end. His fan meeting held on the 23rd sold all 2600 tickets in seconds and earning him 10 million TWD (~$337,900 USD). The fans knew that he was only going to sing two songs during the fanmeeting, and that he will spend the rest of time interacting and playing with fans. All the fans were very responsive, screaming at his every smile.

A fan expressed that even though the price was a little high, she was certainly willing. When Jaejoong picked fans to go onstage and play games with him, the fans in the back were complaining mildly, saying that he only picked the fans who were closer to the front and paid for more expensive tickets.

When the host flipped through Jaejoong’s bag, he not only found fragrance, sunglasses, iPad, headphones etc, but also dietary supplements and medicine. Jaejoong said, “I usually bring more supplements with me, because I generally don’t have time to eat while filming, so it’s easier to eat the medicines.

He also said that he really loves the bubble tea in Taiwan, and always uses the straw to try to get to the bubbles. But he wasn’t sure whether he was doing it right or not, since he always only reach the tea. He also wished that he could eat Taiwanese cuisine that he never tried before, and hopefully things that are good for a man’s body.

***I have to agree! Jaejoong is amazing! The drama is great, especially with the song of Jaejoong. So proud of him. Aside from his good voice, his good looks & his large fanbase to support him...he also has good acting skills. He's perfect enough to get many female fans turned on with a single gaze. I hope I can see him doing some sword fighting later. He has worked so hard and improved so much. JJ as “Kim Kyung Tak” in the drama really impressed me! Like his portrayal of Kim Kyungtak. MBC is really well-known for historical dramas. :)]


JYJ’s Jaejoong praised for his acting in ‘Time Slip Dr. Jin’


As episodes one and two of MBC‘s ‘Time Slip Dr. Jin‘ hit airwaves on May 26th and 27th, JYJ‘s Jaejoong is receiving much praise for his acting in the new historical drama.

Jaejoong has taken the role of a high Joseon military official who was born from a noble family and a fateful rival to Dr. Jin Hyuk (Song Seung Hun).

Although there were a few awkward moments as this is his first attempt at a historical drama, Jaejoong successfully portrayed his character Kim Kyung Tak. His transformation to a strict military official in the Joseon dynasty and his sageuk dialect has surely captivated the audience.

Jaejoong has also been receiving countless praises as he had perfectly expressed the pain of being born out of wedlock but showed his friendly, softer side towards his loved one.

In celebration of Jaejoong’s first historical drama, fans from Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong have put up a Twitter trend with the hashtag #JJinDrjin after the broadcast of episodes one and two. The hashtag reached the #1 spot for trending, proving that he’s one of the leading Hallyu stars of Asia.

Meanwhile, Jaejoong released “Living Like a Dream“, the soundtrack for the new drama, and has been receiving a lot of interest on music and portal sites.

*** I suppose it's inevitable that they compare them since they piloted on the same day. It’s hard to tell yet which one in the long run

will have more viewers since these 2-dramas just started airing. A “Gentleman’s Dignity”, is very funny, it got me hooked in the first

episode while “Dr. Jin” didn't have the same effect on me since it’s a different genre. But, I like both dramas since SSH/JJ & JDG are in it.



Ratings for “A Gentleman’s Dignity” and “Dr. Jin” Result in a Tie

jes1107 May 29, 2012


Ratings of two dramas that newly started airing this weekend, SBS “A Gentleman’s Dignity” and MBC “Dr. Jin,” are very close.

According to some source, rating of “A Gentleman’s Dignity” was 12.8% while that of “Dr. Jin” was 11.8% for each drama’s second episodes broadcasted on May 27. Those ratings were lower than those of first episodes. This may be contributable to KBS 2TV’s “Gag Concert” with a rating of 19.9% jumped into that rivalry as it’s aired in the similar timeframe on Sunday.

What’s interesting is the gap in two drama’s ratings. The first episode of “A Gentleman’s Dignity” had 14.1% and that of “Dr. Jin” had 12.2%. And the second episodes’ ratings show that the gap has been reduced in one day. It’s hard to determine the winner and loser at this point.

“A Gentleman’s Dignity” and “Dr. Jin” both have popular actors and actresses appearing in them, and they started broadcasting on the same day at the same time. This led to the rivalry. Their stories are also very different since “A Gentleman’s Dignity” (Jang Dong Gun, Kim Ha Neul, Kim Soo Ro, Kim Min Jong, and Lee Jong Hyuk) is a romantic comedy while “Dr. Jin” (Lee Beom Soo, Song Seung Hun, Park Min Young, Kim Jae Joong) is a time-traveling fantasy.

As of now, “A Gentleman’s Dignity” is leading, but the gap of two ratings is small. Also, there’s always a possibility of audience’s switching after watching reruns.

Which drama do you like better?

"Dr. JIN" Song Seung-heon and Kim Jae-joong, who is the most pitiful?


Song Seung-heon, Park Min-yeong and Kim Jae-joong foresaw an unfortunate three-way romance.

In the episode of the MBC drama "Dr. JIN" aired on the 27th this weekend, Kim Kyeong-tak (Kim Jae-joong) became miserable the more Jin Hyeok (Song Seung-heon) and Hong Yeong-rae (Park Min-yeong) got close.

Hong Yeong-rae started feeling interested in Jin Hyeok who not only saved her , Hong Yeong-hwi's life but had mysterious medical skills. Moreover, his pitiful situation moved her more and made her care about him.

Jin Hyeok was also pulled towards Hong Yeong-rae who looked like his modern day fiancé Yoo Mina (Park Min-yeong). He repeated what Yoo Mina had said before, about there being 'another self in the parallel universe' and weakened for Yeong-rae.

However, Kim Kyeong-tak became more and more miserable the closer they got. He was in love with Kim Byeong-hee (Kim Eung-soo) despite the fact that he was being used.

He knew very well but that this was not the right path and that his father's love for him wasn't right. This emptiness was filled by Yeong-rae's warmth and he felt a connection with her but she was sharing her feelings with someone else.

Moreover, best friend and brother of Yeong-rae, Hong Yeong-hwi was fighting with the Kim's as the leader of a group of thieves.

Hong Yeong-rae and Jin Hyeok were hard to come true since he had traveled through time and Kim Kyeong-tak was fighting to not become alone.
