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.”
