110720 Park Yoochun Goes To Make Way For Kim Jaejoong! Why Are JYJ Focusing On The Domestic Drama Industry?
Kim Jaejoong is out to dominate the doemstic drama industry following Park Yoochun, who has already made his mark with KBS2′s ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’.
Kim Jaejoong will be playing the role of Cha Mu Won, the prince of the financial world, in SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’ in a love rectangle with Choi Kang Hee, Ji Sung and Wang Ji Hae.
As if performing a baton touch with his fellow member Park Yoochun, whose drama ‘Miss Ripley’ has just ended, Kim Jaejoong has stepped up to dominate the domestic drama industry with a new drama.
Park Yoochun and Kim Jaejoong are already extremely popular within Asia as singers. But we have not been able to see JYJ, a three member group consisting of the two aforementioned people and Kim Junsu, on domestic music programs since the group as formed. Because of this, Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun have been greeting their fans through dramas.
Considering the fact that many idol stars are juggling an acting career on top of their other activities, regardless of the fact that they are constantly followed by the ‘actor-turned-singer’ tag, the two JYJ members’ transformation into actors isn’t special at all.
However, one can easily see from their recent unilateral cancellation notification with regards to the KBS Jeju Nomination concert that they face many obstacles in their domestic activities. To combat this, the members are expanding their playing fields through dramas, not music programs, as Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu, not JYJ.
Thankfully, Park Yoochun has been recognized for his stable acting skills through ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and ‘Miss Ripley’. Many are curious to see if Kim Jaejoong, who is next up in line, will receive similar positive feedback.
A representative of Kim Jaejoong stated to enews on the 20th that, “Kim Jaejoong has been receiving continuous acting lessons since last year,” and “Though he isn’t taking any acting classes at this time as he is filming for his new drama, he reads over his script diligently and is giving his all for the drama.“
