Utilizing the big screen project < Code Name : Jackal >,  JYJ member Kim Jaejoong has successfully advanced into the film industry. < Code Name : Jackal> has been released  since November 15 and despite facing many stiff competition, it’s box office is still hot. Jaejoong’s portrayal of flower boy superstar Choi Hyun received great recognition and love from the moviegoers.

In the film, Kim Jaejoong had perfectly taken on the role of a narcissistic and handsome superstar. Compared to his previous roles, Kim Jaejoong is more at ease shaping/crafting the character Choi Hyun, thus adding liveliness throughout the movie. Additionally, in the film he discarded his “glorious” image, revealing his talent and potential as an actor.

As a newbie in film and television, he has already tried out various genres such as youthful romantic drama, historical drama, comedy film etc., and is continuously exploring his own performance style. Originally an idol singer, Kim Jaejoong’s handsome appearance as well as his undeniable potential as an actor has the audiences greatly anticipating his future projects.

< Code Name : jackal > tells the story of Bong Min Jeong (played by Song JiHyo), a killer whose code name is “Jackal” and the hilarity that ensues after she kidnaps superstar Choi Hyun.

There are many passionate stars but passionate stars that also have courage are rare. In fact, they are limited by the image they have built. In that sense, the move/decision made by singer-actor Kim Jaejoong is very noteworthy.

◇ Kim Jaejoong’s screen debut, <Code Name : jackal>.

“I was amazed by the fact that my acting was shown on the big screen. I felt burdensome and also had mixed feelings. Everybody all worried about my public image but I didn’t worry at all. Instead, I really looked forward to showing people a side of me that they have never seen before.”

According to actress Song Jihyo, there were many ad-libs in the filming process.

“It’s not that ad-libs happened because I wanted them to. Since the director didn’t make the ‘cut’ sign, I was just acting naturally. (Laugh) Unlocking the phone with my chin, telling Jackal  ‘How much I was looking for you’, etc. are my ideas. Rather than the challenge of comedy  acting, the fact that I was tied throughout the movie was actually harder for me. There were also some embarrassing scenes, like the scene in the bathroom. Haha. It was very embarrassing.”

Instead of singer or actor Kim Jaejoong, I want to see entertainer Kim Jaejoong more. Kim Jaejoong actually likes variety shows a lot. He also expressed his frustration toward the broadcasting restriction, “I have confidence that I could do very well [on variety shows but I can’t appear].”

◇ Kim Jaejoong’s love and separation, “the sorrow of parting lasts long”

“The problem of stalker, sponsor, etc. is not the story of some certain individuals. It’s one of the the most irritating problems that occur in entertainment industry. Since I work in entertainment industry, I can empathize. The arduous time before becoming a star, the fear of losing popularity, etc.”

Choi Hyun is a romantic star who writes songs for the girl he loves. But on the other hand, he can betray her for his success. Did Kim Jaejoong have such experiences?

“Rather than betrayal, I have broken up with my girlfriend because I reserved time for my dream more than for her. I first met her when I was in 6th year of elementary school. She is my first love and we dated for 4 years and 8 months. I think I have never written a song for a woman but there are songs containing my feelings after parting. Almost all the songs I made are sad songs. For me, the sorrow of parting lasts long. At times like that, many songs come out.”

◇ Kim Jaejoong’s 10th debut anniversary

Next year is already Kim Jaejoong’s 10th debut anniversary. Together with JYJ’s members, he is walking steadily on his path. He smiled and shared his thoughts about turning 30, “I think I’ll still be the same. Maybe there will be something new when I turn 34. I can’t wait till that time.”

“When I go to the places that I visited during in my debut days or when I listen to the music of those days, I’ll think of the past. [In the past] I got a lot of love and also experienced many ups and downs. However, the conclusion is that, I am really happy now. I’m making music and I have new motivation to continue acting. Above all, I’m glad that I didn’t grow a lot older compared to 10 years ago. Haha.”

Although Kim Jaejoong is known as the networker in entertainment world, he’s actually “not the type that likes to meet people.” He feels insecure when he goes to places that have a lot of people. At my surprised expression, he said that it was ‘a symptom that every celebrity has’. Then I asked about the hobby of Kim Jaejoong, of normal life’s Kim Jaejoong, not singer or actor Kim Jaejoong.

“I like yakju (T/N: literally “medicinal alcohol”). My fans usually give my all kinds of liquor in the world as gifts, such as whiskey, cognac, sake, etc. Yesterday I wanted to stay home to write a song. I don’t know if it was because the weather was so nice or because I was stressed that I couldn’t write anything. So I had one shot of cognac and 2 shots of whiskey and then quickly fall asleep. I’m living my life with such fun. Haha. Also, I was a gaming nerd last year but I have given it up this year. Instead, I enjoy hiking and bike-riding along Han river.”

Song Jihyo explained, “I think Jaejoong will have to answer many difficult questions concerning sasaeng fans, sponsor, etc. in interviews as he plays Choi Hyun, a Hallyu star, and as relevant scenes also appear in the movie. He won’t absolutely show it but I think behind those not-easy-to-deal-with interviews, his feelings get hurt. He’s delicate like that.

Since he had to filmed <Dr. Jin> at the same time, it happened often that he only got to sleep 30 minutes a day. Despite that, he has never show sign of tiredness at the filming location. Even if he was half asleep and half awake with dark circles under his eyes, once the camera was on, he would do his job properly. I felt very badly seeing him fall asleep on the bed at the set during a short break.”

She added, “Actually, when people are tired or sick, they are bound to act selfish. I felt thankful yet sorry that he wasn’t like that.”

*Appearance complex: Jaejoong is not happy with his looks because people only look at his appearance and think that he has no talent.

It’s necessary now to add one more title to ‘Hallyu idol star’ – ‘movie actor’.  JYJ Kim Jaejoong is full-fledgedly targeting domestic big screens.

After [Almost] 10 years since debut, people only recall his ‘flower boy’ image. The audience of the movie might be a little surprised to see his ‘spoilt’ image.

I met Kim Jaejoong in a cafeteria in Jongno-gu, Seoul. He said ‘Hello’ first to me, which impressed me. Unlike his cold looking appearance, he has the delicate charm of a native Korean youth of 26 years.

“Many people said that they didn’t expect that ‘spoilt’ image of mine. It was great that I was able to express various emotions in dramas. I was also glad that I got to work with Song Jihyo who is in the same company with me. I wanted to take opportunity as a rookie movie actor.” 

Throughout the interview, he emphasized that he “doesn’t want to become an actor in one stroke.” He is satisfied to learn even from just one drama/movie. Kim Jaejoong who initially didn’t dream of becoming an actor confessed that he wanted to break free from the preconception of the public.

“At the beginning, I had the opportunity to try acting by chance, which somehow made me feel sorry towards my colleagues. I didn’t want to read the script in front of the members who were preparing to become actors. But now, I think that acting is interesting. I had serious appearance complex when I was younger. I wanted to break the ‘wall’ inside of me through the variety of acting.”

“After debut, even if I was just standing still, a lot of people asked me if I was angry. I also heard many people say ‘I don’t like him. He doesn’t give me a good impression’. However if we go abroad, other members envy me the most. Maybe because I look unique, many overseas fans like me more. (Laugh) But I told my members that I envied them more. ‘You guys have a lot of fans and not much anti-fans in the country where we are born.’ I told them. Because of that appearance complex, the desire to use acting to get rid of that shell that I have made myself grew bigger. It’s not the matter of time. I don’t have confidence to do well right away either. I want to do it step by step, little by little.”

I can feel the sincerity in his words. He will celebrate his 10th debut anniversary next year but he said that he needs to constantly control his mind in order to break the preconception and misconception surrounding him.

He first realized his interest toward acting when he has filming <Dr. Jin>. Filming drama and movie at the same time, he was exhausted both physically and mentally. “Filming movie and drama, one is contemporary, other is historical but I didn’t feel scared.” So I mischievously asked him if he had ‘star disease’ and entered his van right after hearing the ‘cut’ sign. “For me, the filming set was a haven of peace. I preferred the bed at the set than my van. They had made the set like a real motel. When I was sleeping there, I could feel that the staffs were walking very careful so that they wouldn’t wake me. (Laugh) We’re close and comfortable with each other like a family.”

Kim Jaejoong introduced < Code Name : jackal> as a movie that “the more you watch, the more you find it attractive”. As it’s his big screen debut, there is still something lacking but he never regrets it. Unlike the singer that can taste the failure often because it’s a profession where it is easy to hit the limit, the actor can find him/herself the chance to learn and grow in every movie/drama. That fact is quite attractive. Kim Jaejoong has quickly realized that charm of acting.

“Aside from music, acting helps me to refreshingly develop myself. It’s a tonic, a stimulant. If people do only one thing over and over again, they might fall into idleness and become haughty. I like the feeling of receiving reprimands and compliments when I do something new. The more I do it (acting), the more I have ambition and motivation to do it more. I hope for support from everyone.”

is the debut movie of JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong (26) but the box office result is not really good. He still has a long way to go. The movie was released on big screen on the 15th and cumulative audience number is 180.000. However, he is not disappointed and brightly smiles.

It’s sad but it’s OK. You can’t expect too much at your first attempt. Even great actors can fail. I’m still thankful that I could get a foothold in film industry. Thanks to this movie, I have motivation to keep going with other movies.

Toward his ‘messy’ image in < Code Name : Jackal>, Kim jaejoong doesn’t feel  burdened or worried. As many people like the ‘decorated’ image of mine, I did worry that it might hurt their feelings. However, there are also people who like that [messy] image. That’s why I could feel relieved. It’s just that, the tension and the pressure were still there because I’m the main lead. I didn’t think about the box office while filming. Instead, I was worried about how singer-turn-actor Kim Jaejoong can harmonize naturally with other actors/actresses. I also wanted to show that I was taking on a new challenge, just like when i did < Protect The Boss> and < Dr. Jin>.

I asked him if he has thought about the reason why JYJ is so famous. He said, You know that we don’t have freedom [to do what we want to do]. We’re trying hard to do what we can within this unfair fence. I think, seeing such unfortunate situation, many more people are willing to help us. There should have had many ways for us to communicate with our fans but we’re limited. However [thanks to that] we got the concentration because we don’t have any place other than the concert venue. That’s why other people might think that we’re very famous.” (Laugh)

After breaking out of DBSK, their fight with SM Entertainment is still ongoing. Their appearance is blocked on both terrestrial and cable TV. Kim Jaejoong expressed, I feel like we’re riding a wave of twists and turns.” In the middle of an immense popularity, they had experienced the bottom and then stood up again. “I think those experiences are fruitful. I’m looking forward to the future of 10 years later.”

Aside from music activities, JYJ’s members are expanding into the acting field. Although Kim Jaejoong has set foot in the film industry, it’s regrettable that his popularity is not like other members’. Does he envy his members? And what advice do the members give to each other?

I don’t envy my members. I’m the type that is severe with myself. If you look at the bigger picture, this process is very helpful to me. Also, we respect and admire each other. So, we don’t give each other advice. We believe in our own abilities. I know that we’re not the type of person that can live comfortably without ambition. ‘Only if I have motivation, I can surely make it!’ I’m trying harder with that thought. (Laugh)

One more year slips by and he will welcome his 10th debut anniversary. Kim Jaejoong said, 10 years ago, I have thought about 10 years later. Now that 10 years passed by, I think I’m on the path that I want to go.” He burst out laughing by saying jokingly, “I’m glad that, luckily, compared to 10 years ago, Junsu, Yoochun and I haven’t become old men.

Don’t be sad jae-ah, the most important is not about the numbers of the audience but the most important are those people  feel happy and satisfied after watch your movie or not. There are many reason for people to go watch a movie in theater. Perhaps it’s for hang out with their friends, for a date, or for spare their time after working all day or for cheer theirself after have a very bad day so if those people who watch your movie feel more refresh and can’t stop to talking about your movie then it’s already enough.

Beside through this movie, you already show to them your other side of your acting. Box Office or not it’s really doesn’t matter  because it’s already great when you can manage yourself to acting in two different place,played as two different characters and can sink to each character in a short time also in the hot weather too. You are only got 30 minutes for sleep each day for 2- 3 month, it’s already unbelievable.

You guys already show it to many people that as long as you keep believe with yourself, keep looking to the future and not dwells on the glory of the past, never gave up, keep sharing the love and what you have to other people who need it, appreciate everything that God gave to you then everything gonna be possible. You guys already inspired many people for never gave up to reach their dreams. Another more important things is your famous is not because a dirty way like your previous company usually done but your famous because a good way such your hard work, talents, a grateful feeling to God also love that you share with other people. 

Beside like i said before in my previous post, those banning and unfair treatments also can be categorized as a blessing that disguise as a trouble. God is the only one who can made a perfect plan without any mistaken inside it so those matter also a plan from God to see how the boys gonna react and do. are they gonna gave up or they are gonna tried to stand up even though they knew that it’s gonna be really hard and long way to against their previous company ?. Even though their previous company tried to cover up every dirty work that they have done but God can’t be deceived because God know everything that happen before,during and after that time. It’s only matter of time for everything to be end. I believe if till now those company still tried to manipulate everything to stopping the boys and still doesn’t care about the consequence of their action then let God who handle everything.


 

In the interview with Nocut News, Kim Jaejoong revealed, In the early phase of the scenario, I was just being me. Of course it was not the case in the later part of the story but I think everybody would be like that if they were kidnapped.

In the movie, there is a scene where I told Bong Minjung ‘It was so hard for me in the past. I don’t want to live that life again. I am doing just fine now.’ It’s not a scene with extreme emotion and I didn’t have to cry but I found myself shedding tears. That cut was used in the movie but it actually wasn’t in the original script. There were many before-debut stories that I couldn’t tell. Maybe my tears fell because of those thoughts.

Last time at the showcase, director Bae Hyungjoon has praised the ‘messy’ image of Kim Jaejoong. About this, Kim Jaejoong humbly said, I think he feels relieved seeing me let go of all restrictions without hesitation.  And it seems that he liked the ad-libs [that I made]. Maybe he praised me because I has quickly adapted.

I asked if his fans were shocked by his ‘messy’ image and received a surprising answer. He said, I think my fans like it very much as they can see various images of mine. Actually, I also thought that they would love it when I was filming.

Kim Jaejoong is expanding his territory as an actor. He said, Acting is a new domain. The more I do it, the more I find it refreshing and attractive. It gives motivation to keep going in the future.

But it doesn’t mean that Kim Jaejoong would neglect activities as a singer. He promised, All the members are busy with individual activities. Therefore, we are preparing in advance for new album in spare time. I’ll continue music activities as JYJ and as individual.

Like he said, JYJ members have many individual activities now. Drama < I Miss You > of Park Yoochun is on air. Kim Junsu continues his musical activities. Like this, it cannot avoid the situation that they have to compete with each other. Even though, the presence of the members is still his great source of strength.

Kim Jaejoong expressed his honest feeling, The members have activities in the same fields and our activities overlap. That’s why we might feel self-conscious or uncomfortable. We are trying our best not to overlap each other.

When the members have activity (album, drama), I give a lot of support and promote it a lot. But they don’t do the same to me. Recently When I was having a meal together with Junsu and my company’s staffs told him ’Shouldn’t you evidently help to promote [Jaejoong]?’ The support of the members is really my great source of strength.

[Only Jaejoong-related parts are translated]

Song Jihyo proudly talked about their teamwork, “I’m the type that usually takes long time to get to know my co-actor/actress. And because of my expectation [about the co-actor/actress], I always regret later. But this time, because I don’t need time to be acquainted with him, we helped each other by talking about the movie and had fun filming.

She also said, “At that time, Jaejoong was having hard time because he was filming drama too. Even though, he has never complained about it even once. I thought that he fit the character well when I read the scenario. I believed that he could do well.

Song Jihyo added, “He’s a delightful and simple person. He also has a lot of talents. Jaejoong absorbed the atmosphere like he absorbed the space itself, as if he had been there for long time. It would be tough if he didn’t have natural talent.
