[NEWS + SPOILER] 120716 ‘Dr. Jin’ Kim Jaejoong broke the prejudice about idols – Mournful acting got praised
‘Dr. Jin’ Kim Jaejoong’s mournful acting is getting much praises.
It was suffering times for Kim Kyungtak (Kim Jaejoong). In other words, it was an episode for Kim Kyungtak’s character to shine.
In the drama, Kim Kyungtak followed his father’s orders and shot at Lee Haeung. However, Lee Haeung survived and Kim Kyungtak was caught by Shim Jupal. Even being tortured, he didn’t open his mouth. Instead, he told Hong Younghui, who came to persuade him to be on Heungsun Gun’s side, “Did Heungsun Gun promise you that he wouldn’t abandon you? If you’re afraid of being abandoned, you shouldn’t have let others use you. We’re in same situation, only the sides are different. You didn’t really realize that? All I have done is for the Minister’s sake. You don’t have to tell me anymore.”
To Hong Youngrae whom he sincerely loved but who betrayed him, Kim Kyungtak also had a sharp tongue. Kim Kyungtak said, “Even if I get released, I don’t have any place to comeback to. Go back! I’m willingly on Mr. Minister’s side.”
Kim Kyungtak could finally escape. He had nowhere to go except the house he has lived when he was little. In this place, Kim Byunghee has taken the little Kyungtak by the hand and asked him, “Do you want to go with me?” He thought of the bygones but all is in vain. Placing a knife against his own neck, Kim Kyungtak was ready to commit suicide.
However, Kim Kyungtak was alive under Hong Youngrae’s persuasion. Hong Youngrae said, “I can tell you 10 reasons, 100 reasons that you must live but will it reach your heart if I say it? You will eventually have to find them yourself. However if you can’t find them, then to find the meaning of your life is also a reason not to die.”
Kim Byunghee once again thought of using Kim Kyungtak. Kim Byunghee asked Kim Kyungtak who cried out “Please kill me!”, “Do you want to die by my hand?” In heart-rending expression, Kim Kyungtak exposed his loyalty again, “I deserve to die.” To this, Kim Byunghee said, “There are many things to do from now on. Don’t repeat this mistake again. Call me ‘father’. Your father will accept you again.”
Kim Kyungtak wept aloud and blurted out ‘father’, the word that he wasn’t allowed to call even once since his mother’s funeral. He burst out into a flood of tears, without knowing that he would be used again.
This person called Kim Kyungtak has suffered a horrible tragedy in just one episode of ‘Dr.Jin’. He lost everything, got locked and got beaten. Nevertheless, he kept the loyalty for his father. In the end of the episode, when his father forgave him, he finally shed all the tragic tears that he stored throughout the episode.
JYJ Kim Jaejoong who plays this Kim Kyungtak has surprisingly made the ‘idol’ tag fade away and adapted himself to the drama. It is true that, in the meantime, Kim Jaejoong wasn’t properly evaluated because of the preconception about ‘idol-turn-actors’. However, he has improved from day to day and perfectly controlled the Kim Kyungtak character. With this, Kim Jaejoong is fully showing his presence in the drama and tightening his position as an actor.
After the broadcast, the viewers have left excited reaction about Kim Jaejoong’s acting, such as, “Today Kim Jaejoong’s acting is the best!” “His acting made me get goose bumps.” “Kim Kyungtak character is completely attractive.” “Kim Jaejoong’s emotional acting is masterpiece!” “I didn’t know that Kim Jaejoong’s acting was this good.”
