The First Airing of Protect the Boss, the Debut Drama of JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong. Passes the Test on Acting, “Favorably Received”

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong turned into a chaebol male, Cha Muwon.

On the first episode of the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama Protect the Boss that aired on the 3rd of Auguest, the cousin and rival of Cha Jihun – Cha Muwon – revealed himself.

Cha Muwon was portrayed as someone with more abilities than Cha Jihun who has fear of being around people. Even from the first appearance, he finished up the presentation instead of Cha Jihun who lost his words in the middle of the speech. Unlike Cha Jihun who is all over the place, he has the power of persuasion and makes others feel trust towards him, a character with abilities.

Cha Muwon also acted as Noh Eunsul’s protector. In the interview to select the secretary to Cha Jihun, he picked Noh Eunsul who made memorable remarks. When Noh Eunseul asked him “why did you pick me,” Cha Muwon answered: “Your boss, Cha Jihun, is not someone who is easy for a normal person to handle.”

To his own secretary, he poured out and revealed his heart and gathered anticipation for the future proceeding of the storyline: “As much as she is desperate, her loyalty will be greater towards me who picked her than towards Cha Jihun. Also, isn’t she cute?”

Kim Jaejoong pulled off the role of the calm, collected, sharp and witty persona of Cha Muwon without a problem. In pronunciation and vocalization also, areas which are typically pointed to as problem areas of actors who are originally idols, he received the evaluation that comparatively he was fine.

The viewers responded after the airing on the related online boards: “The acting of Kim Jaejoong was more natural than I anticipated.” “I worried when I heard that he is the counterpart to Ji Sung but he melded in without any ill feelings (on the part of the viewer).” “I shall look forward to Kim Jaejoong’s acting even more in the future.”

On the other hand, Hero Jaejoong has already done his initiation ceremony as an actor in Japan, through the 2010 Fuji TV Drama Sunao ni Narenakute.

110804 First Park Yoochun, Now Kim Jaejoong, “JYJ Specializes In Acting As Managing Directors?”

(T/N: To explain the roles that Song Yoo Hyun and Cha Mu Won play in their dramas, there isn’t really an english equivalent but assuming “Chairman” = the guy who runs the entire company, they are probably the “Managing Directors” , ranked below the Chairman but above the Department Heads)

Are JYJ all acting as chaebol managing directors?

In the first episode of SBS’s “Protect the Boss” aired on 3 August, Kim Jaejoong plays the role of Managing Director, and achieved success in term of national drama ratings.

In “Protect the Boss,” Kim Jaejoong plays the role of DN Group’s 2nd Division Planning Department Head cum Managing Director. His character Cha Mu Won is engaged in a rivalry with Cha Ji Hun, his cousin and eldest son of DN Group’s Chairman.

Cha Mu Won manages all the operations in the company in place of the troublemaker Cha Ji Hun, is both capable and handsome, the always gentlemanly “Prince of the Financial World.”

In 2007, Kim Jaejoong participated in the movie “Postman to Heaven” with Han Hyo Joo, and following his role in the Japanese Fuji TV drama “Sunao Ni Narenakute” last year, this is his first time acting in a Korean drama.

Kim Jaejoong, who is starring in his debut domestic drama, collaborated perfectly with Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee and other actors, receiving positive comments from the netizens such as “excellent acting with his eyes” and “Just like a real 2nd generation chaebol.”

Before Kim Jaejoong, in the recently aired MBC drama “Miss Ripley,”Park Yoochun played the role of famous resorts group Mondo Group’s heir and Managing Director Song Yoo Hyun.

JYJ members are continually taking on the role of Managing Directors, earning comments from the netizens such as “They are professional “Managing Director” actors” and “Kim Junsu should play the role of Managing Director once” and other comments.
