Last year, during their interview, group “JYJ’s” members Junsu and Yuchun called Jaejoong as a “hyung with lots of talent.” They also guaranteed that because he has so much talent, starting next year, his true worth will be revealed one by one. Their predictions have hit the mark. Although Kim Jaejoong started his solo activities the latest amongst his members, his activities are most diverse. After acting as the overall director for “JYJ’s” World Tour Concert, he also directed “gymnastics fairy” Son Yeonjae’s “gymnastics gala show.” While he is at it, he plans to show off his talent as an “actor” this August. Kim Jaejoong will knock [the doors] of household theaters as “Cha Muhyun,” the son of a leading domestic company group in SBS’s Wed-Thurs drama “Protect the Boss” set to air on August 3rd. [“Cha Muhyun”] is a flawless man with good looks, wealth, and personality.
“Although he is called a ‘cold city man,’ he’s not always cold and cool-headed. He has a rivalry with older cousin Jihyun (Jisung) during work, but is a naive man who shows a cutely strange side when he’s with him. He’s cold only in his exterior and his actually a person with a warm heart when you get to know him.”
The love triangle surrounding the female lead Chae Kanghee’s character Eunsul is also something to see.
“Because it hasn’t been long since we started shooting, the character Cha Muhyun isn’t quite clear yet. Inside me, its unfocused and messy. I had many conversations with the director and writer. I think they looked for Cha Muhyun inside me through not only acting-related topics but also through ordinary conversations. Starting from episode 3~4, you should be able to catch a glance of real Kim Jaejoong inside Cha Muhyun.”
This isn’t [Jaejoong’s] first time acting. In 2009, He took his first step in acting through the movie “Postman to Heaven” and worked with Japanese stars in Japan’s FujiTV drama “Because I Can’t be Truthful” in 2010. However, he emphasized that his real start as an actor is through “Protect the Boss.”
“Although ‘Postman to Heaven’ is my debut piece, I wasn’t prepared as an actor. I started shooting just after memorizing my lines, without any preparation… so I didn’t have the proper courtesy for acting. I’m satisfied with “Because I Can’t be Truthful” because I filmed it with sufficient preparation. However, there is a slight dissatisfaction because the ratings weren’t as great as I had hoped. ‘Protect the Boss’ is a piece that I’m starting after a course of preparation so there’s great attachment to it, and the thought of presenting in front of domestic fans makes my hear flutter.”
I’ve dismissed the thought of doing too well. I’m satisfied if I’m not awkward and can just harmonize with the other seniors starring in the drama. Jaejoong’s acting teacher Ahn Naesang told him, “you shouldn’t act like you’re acting. Don’t act like you’re acting.” Although the meaning behind the advice is vague right now, Jaejoong plans to keep thinking about it as he acts. Right now, his head is full of acting.
“The members and I watched the first episode of Yuchun’s ‘Miss Ripley’ together. But I’m never going to do that. There’s still great tension when I’m showing [my acting] to the members. I’m just going to watch it alone in hiding. Haha.”
For Kim Jaejoong, who has said that it took him so long to pick which music style he liked, the question about what kind of actor he wants to become is still difficult.
“This is just the beginning. Right now, because it’s the start to a new challenge, I want to take it on gradually and learn.”
