111004 Jaejoong Says, “If I Was Born In The Past, My Palate Would Make Me Jang-geum”

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong boasted about his ‘perfect palate’ and showed confidence in his cooking skills.

At the press conference of JYJ’s first Korean album ‘In heaven’, which was held at a cafe in Jung-dong, Seoul on the 30th, Kim Jaejoong revealed, “I have such a good palate that I would have been born as Jang-geum if I was born in the past.

Kim Jaejoong showcased stabilized acting skills as Cha Mu Won in the recently ended SBS drama ‘Protect the Boss’. He revealed that all the scenes in the drama that showed him cooking were real shots of him and not an extra. His fellow members explained that Kim Jaejoong has a superior talent for cooking.

Junsu said, “Of everything he can cook, I recommend Jaejoong hyung’s kimchi fried rice and japtang jjigae,” while Park Yoochun praised, “As we don’t live in a dorm together anymore, we don’t have many chances to eat Jaejoong hyung’s food full of his love and sincerity but he’s really good at it. Even when it looks like there’s nothing to cook with, he always makes tasty food.

Junsu added, “He can make food tasty, even without any artificial flavoring. I think even Jaejoong hyung takes pride in the fact that he doesn’t use any of that stuff.” At his members’ praise, Jaejoong joked and said, “My palate is really… If I was born in the past, I would have been born as Jang-geum.”

JYJ’s Park Yoochun praised the acting of his fellow member, Kim Jaejoong. Kim Jaejoong recently took on his first domestic drama with SBS’ ‘Protect the Boss’.

Meeting with reporters, Park Yoochun said, “I really enjoyed watching Kim Jaejoong act. Everyone, from my mother to my female cousins, were avid viewers of ‘Protect the Boss’,” and “I don’t know if I’m qualified enough to say whether he was good or bad, but honestly, I think he shone the most out of all the characters in the drama. I could see a kind of aura around him. It made me think, ‘So this is the power of Kim Jaejoong.’

As a senior actor, Park Yoochun said, “I think he molded into his character really well. He was quick to mesh his character and his own image together to fit his role. I feel envious and I was moved by him. If I ever get the opportunity later on, I want to try out a character like the one Jaejoong showed.”

He ended his praise by adding, “To tell the truth, everyone in the agency thinks he’s going to win the Best Newcomer Award and I want him to.

At his fellow member’s praise, Kim Jaejoong said, “I met a great character. It was a character that would have been a huge hit if I was a better actor,” and “It’s true that I was hesitant at first because I thought I’d be compared a lot to Yoochun as an actor.

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.”
