JYJ’s Jaejoong and Song Ji Hyo cast for comedy film, ‘Jackal is Coming’
JYJ‘s Jaejoong and Song Ji Hyo have been cast as the lead characters for the upcoming film, ‘Jackal is Coming‘!
On April 20th, C-JeS Entertainment confirmed that the two completed their first script reading on the 18th and are preparing to begin filming for the movie.
Having already had his acting talents recognized through his drama, ‘Protect the Boss‘, Jaejoong will be expanding his acting career this year by taking on both ‘Jackal is Coming’ and his MBC drama, ‘Time Slip Doctor Jin‘.
A representative of C-JeS Entertainment expressed, “Upon reading the scenario for ‘Jackal is Coming’, Jaejoong himself showed an interest in trying a comical character. As it is a comedy film, he said that he wanted to portray his character as humorously as possible.”
They continued, “Song Ji Hyo also has strong affections for the film. Since it will mark her first big screen comeback in a while, she’s expecting to have a lot of fun on the set.”
‘Jackal is Coming’ is about a clumsy killer (played by Song Ji Hyo) who kidnaps a popular singer and tries to murder him in various ways while keeping back the police.

I think this film’s going to be a good one. JaeJooong taking on a comical character of a popular singer is like watching the natural JaeJoong that we know. He doesn’t have to exert too much effort in trying to ‘internalize’ his character because we all know that JaeJoong himself is such a funny and adorable one. Can’t wait to watch it!
