JYJ Kim Jaejoong’s popularity in Japan is still hot.

[Jaejoong IN ‘Protect the Boss’ Special Making DVD] was ranked third place in the Oricon weekly DVD chart during the week Nov 26-Dec 2. Together with AKB48 and KAT-TUN DVDs, Kim Jaejoong DVD are among the most popular.

Pre-orders for the DVD started last July and was immediately ranked no 1 in various online sites such as HMV Japan, Amazon, and Rakuten.

[Jaejoong IN ‘Protect the Boss’ Special Making DVD] has garnered attention even before it was put on sale because it includes behind the scenes shooting, script reading, press conference, and specially a video of Kim Jaejoong doing the narration from SBS drama’s “Protect The boss” which was aired last September 2011.

His management said, “It’s been 3 years since Kim Jaejoong’s last activity in Japan and the result is very surprising because the DVD is not a song or a concert but a making of his drama. Kim Jaejoong’s high popularity could be the contributing factor why Protect the Boss has been rebroadcast from several channels across Japan.”

Kim Jaejoong, whose song “I’ll Protect You” from the Protect the Boss OST, is still popular in domestic music charts like Hanteo even though it was released a year ago.

According to Movie Naver, these are the Top 5 Movie Recommendations by Kim Jaejoong:

1) Life Is Beautiful: 

Life Is Beautiful (Italian: La vita è bella) is a 1997 Italian tragicomedy drama film directed by and starring Roberto Benigni. Benigni plays Guido Orefice, a Jewish Italian book keeper, who must employ his fertile imagination to shield his son from the horrors of internment in a Nazi concentration camp. Part of the film came from Benigni’s own family history; before his birth Roberto’s father had survived three years of internment at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. The film was a critical and financial success, winning Benigni the Academy Award for Best Actor at the 71st Academy Awards as well as the Academy Award for Best Original Dramatic Score and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

2) Titanic

Titanic is a 1997 American epic romantic disaster film directed, written, co-produced, and co-edited by James Cameron. A fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage.

Cameron’s inspiration for the film was predicated on his fascination with shipwrecks; he wanted to convey the emotional message of the tragedy, and felt that a love story interspersed with the human loss would be essential to achieving this. Production on the film began in 1995, when Cameron shot footage of the actual Titanic wreck. The modern scenes were shot on board the Akademik Mstislav Keldysh, which Cameron had used as a base when filming the wreck. A reconstruction of the Titanic was built at Playas de Rosarito, Baja California, and scale models andcomputer-generated imagery were also used to recreate the sinking. The film was partially funded by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox, and, at the time, was the most expensive film ever made, with an estimated budget of $200 million.

Upon its release on December 19, 1997, the film achieved critical and commercial success. Nominated for fourteen Academy Awards, it won eleven, including the awards for Best Picture and Best Director, tying Ben Hur (1959) for most Oscars won by a single film. With an initial worldwide gross of over $1.84 billion, it was the first film to reach the billion-dollar mark. It remained the highest-grossing film of all time since 1998, until Cameron’s 2009 film Avatar surpassed its gross in 2010. A 3D version of the film, released on April 4, 2012 (often billed as Titanic 3D), to commemorate the centenary of the sinking of the ship, earned it an additional $343 million worldwide, which pushed Titanic’s worldwide total to $2.18 billion. It became the second film to gross more than $2 billion worldwide (the first being Avatar).  [More Info here]

 

3) The Pianist

The film was awarded the Palme d’Or at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival,[2] BAFTA Award for Best Film, BAFTA Award for Best Direction in 2003 and seven French Césars including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor for Brody. [More Info here]

 

4) Saving Private Ryan

Miller (played by Tom Hanks) and seven other soldiers (Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi, Adam Goldberg andJeremy Davies) as they search for a paratrooper, Private First Class James Francis Ryan (Matt Damon), who is the last-surviving brother of four servicemen.

Rodat conceived the film’s story in 1994 when he saw a monument dedicated to eight siblings killed in the American Civil War. Rodat imagined a similar sibling narrative set in World War II. The script was submitted to producer Mark Gordon, who handed it to Hanks. It was finally given to Spielberg, who decided to direct.

Park Yoochun’s dedication towards acting is impressive.

A representative expressed, “To match Park Yoochun’s role as a detective, his previous gentle image had to be discarded and to do that, the hairstyle was first changed. Compared to the feeling of a pretty boy, we attempted to show a strong image.”

He explained, “Even though there are stylish detectives, but adhering to the writer’s intentions, Han Jungwoo is a character that requires a beastly, masculine image. Instead of paying attention to the looks, compatible clothings and habits are required in order to suit into the acting.”

Especially due to Han Jungwoo’s chase for his first love for 14 years, there are many infectious emotional and crying scenes. The representative said, “For normal close-up, when the camera goes in really closely to capture the shoot, makeup touch ups would be needed. But for Park Yoochun, when he films crying scenes, for fear of breaking the emotions, he refuses touch ups. He pays no regard to how it is near barefaced, and immerses himself”.
