111006 Choi Kang Hee Says, “Ji Sung Is A Perfect Guy, Kim Jaejoong Is A Charming Guy”

Choi Kang Hee received the full attention and love of two great guys in ‘Protect the Boss’. What are the charms of Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong according to Choi Kang Hee?

Choi Kang Hee, who said that she had met Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong two days ago, stated, “Ji Sung was still Cha Ji Hun. But Jaejoong had transformed into the great Kim Jaejoong of JYJ,” and laughed as she said, “Choi Kang Hee had a drink with Cha Ji Hun and Kim Jaejoong.”


She did not hold back her praise for Kim Jaejoong. Describing his facial features, Choi Kang Hee said, “I don’t think Kim Jaejoong’s human. Have you ever seen another kid with eyes as big as his?” and “He’s so unrealistically good-looking so I found myself staring at him a lot. He’s like a figurine.

She also stated, “Jaejoong has a lot of aegyo (cute charm) and is a really innocent and pure friend,” and “Jaejoong is like a person who has never known evil. I don’t think he purposely avoided evil, I think he was just never damaged by it. He’s pure and acts cute a lot.

“A couple of days ago, I fell over while we were out for a drink and I ended up with a scrape on my hand. Ji Sung sent me a caring text message that read, ‘How’s your hand?’ while Jaejoong sent me one that said, ‘Noona, your hand is, like, bleeding’ (laughter). The actors in the team of ‘Protect the Boss’ were extremely close to each other. Sometimes when I act, I feel as though I’m working up against a wall but in this drama, I think the four characters really understood each other really well.”

111006 Choi Kang Hee Praises Kim Jaejoong’s Acting, “He’s Naturally Gifted At Understanding Emotions”

Actress Choi Kang Hee (34) highly praised Kim Jaejoong(25)’s acting.

In an interview with TV Report on the 5th, Choi Kang Hee said, “Isn’t he such a great actor?” as soon as a question about Kim Jaejoong was posed to her.

The actress took on the role of No Eun Seol in the recently ended SBS TV drama ‘Protect the Boss’ and worked alongside Ji Sung as Cha Ji Hun and Kim Jaejoong as Cha Mu Won.

Kim Jaejoong, for whom ‘Protect the Boss’ was his first domestic drama, was praised by many for his stable acting during the entire drama. Even Choi Kang Hee, his acting senior, didn’t hold back on her praise for him.

Choi Kang Hee said, “Jaejoong’s personality is so different from Cha Mu Won’s in real life that it made me think that he would have been more comfortable playing Cha Ji Hun,” and “When I first received the script, I thought that Cha Mu Won was the hardest role to take on. But when I heard that a rookie would be playing the part, I found myself thinking of the immense amount of pressure that was placed on Jaejoong’s shoulders. It’s a role that even I would worry a lot about. But he just took off running from the start. He was really good, even when he had just received his script that day, and I was surprised.

She also reminisced and added, “Even after we had a run-through, people were really worried out of their concern for him. But I had a good feeling about him. So after the run-through, I walked up to the director and told him, ‘I think if you just leave him be, he’ll be great’,” and “I thought it would do him more harm than good if Jaejoong was told how to talk and walk as Cha Mu Won, so we just let him be and he did really well. I think he’s naturally gifted at understanding emotions.

Emphasizing that, “I’ve never once felt worried about Jaejoong,” Choi Kang Hee smiled as she sad, “Jaejoong didn’t get tense on location and he seemed at ease with himself. Ji Sung and I have been acting for a long time, so we automatically know what kind of acting works for dramas. Although Jaejoong was a rookie, he would unexpectedly crank out such great scenes and I found that so amazing. So our female editors all fell for Jaejoong.
