Kim Jaejoong who has a mysterious look unexpectedly revealed many honest stories. The official of C-JES Entertainment was nervous at Kim Jaejoong’s words but a Kim Jaejoong who didn’t try to dissemble nor tell predictable stories was definitely more attractive. Maybe there will be many things that the fans did not know.
- In MBC weekend drama ‘Dr.Jin’, you have worked with actor Kim Eungsoo, a big senior. Didn’t you feel burdened?
“Burdensome? Not at all. Father really made it easy for me to keep in tune with him. I got more empathy looking at father’s expressions. There were many ad-lib too. It wasn’t constrained but something came out naturally when I saw father’s expression and acting.”
- Much Saliva spattered in your crying scene.
“Haha. We have talked about it at the wrap-up party. Actually, a lot of saliva spattered. Saliva, sweat, tears and runny nose were mixed together. Ha~ There were multiple reasons. Firstly, that time, I have stayed up through many nights and couldn’t eat. Seeing father’s tears, my feelings burst out. So everything that could come out came out from my body. Haha”
- I heard that you have presented Kim Eungsoo a bottle of wine?
“He is really fond of liquor. He said that when we had the first filming. I remember that he said, ‘In this heat, a glass of whiskey will be good’. So I said, ‘I’ll surely buy you one later’”
- I think that Kim Eungsoo really likes you.
“Usually, he can’t hide his feeling. If he likes something, he’ll say it all. Senior Kim Eungsoo has originally used a 2G. But he kept bringing up this talk when I was near, ‘This cell phone doesn’t work. No one can contact me’. ‘Someone said that he would buy me one. When will he do it?’ he said it about 3 times. So I bought him a smart phone right after. He didn’t directly tell me about his feeling. ‘This is smart phone. They call it 4G’ he said. He rarely goes on Internet and doesn’t know how to use apps.”
- You’re usually good at taking care of the seniors?
“Jung Hyesun sunsaengnim (T/N: The Queen dowager in Dr.Jin) once told me, ‘When an actor starts an acting career, he shouldn’t do it while receiving hatred’. So since the beginning, instead of affectation, I think the most basic one, like coming soon and waiting, not being lazy, doing good at acting, working hard, is better.”
- Didn’t you receive acting advice from Kim Eungsoo?
“Absolutely not. He respects the co-actor’s acting. ‘If that person can’t act, can he have his acting career or style?’ he said. He won’t definitely say this or that as a senior”
- Many people recommended best couple award for you and Jin Yihan.
“I think I’m always like that. Instead of the actresses, I have some strange thing with the actors. Best couple award? I’ll be thankful if it’s given to me.”
- You look like Robert Pattinson.
“Ah, I have heard about that. ‘We look alike?’ I wanted to say. Since he’s westerner and I’m Asian, I’m not sure if we look alike.”
- In comparison with Park Yoochun, who is better at acting?
“Yoochun and I are very different. In Yoochun’s case, he has the strength inside the softness. It’s interesting to find the strength inside the softness in Yoochun’s acting. As for me, I think I have the softness inside the strength. If Yoochun had played Kim Kyungtak and I had played Lee Gak, it wouldn’t have matched. I think it’s good that the members of one group have different characteristics.”
- You look handsome.
“No, I’m not handsome. I look unique.”
- Who is handsome then?
“Junsu is the most handsome. To tell you the truth, in JYJ, there are fans of one member, the characteristics of fans are distinct. Junsu’s charm, Yoochun’s and mine are different like the difference between heaven and earth. Junsu has everything that I don’t have.”
- What is your charm?
“Uhm I can list 2 points. I know that I’m the first member who capture the attention of overseas fans when we go abroad. Since I have the most unique appearance, I think they will approach me first and quickly. After that, I think the fans who continue to stay by my side liked me first for my appearance, but they stay because of my personality that is opposed to my appearance. I have the appearance of a ‘badass’ but actually I’m a very decent young man.”
- The belief of Kim Jaejoong?
“It’s the same with Kim Kyungtak. I’ll definitely protect what I want to protect. I have a tattoo in my chest. It means to keep my belief. The scariest thing for people is losing things they have. With the meaning of definitely protecting something that I want to protect, even if I have lost it, because I don’t have confidence either, I got it carved on my body. When I become weak, I look at it and gain my strength again.”
- Is there anything that you want to achieve in particular?
“I don’t have anything yet. But there are many new things I want to try. Even if it’s stressful, I still like it. There is bliss after every challenge. If you achieve something so fast, it’s not interesting anymore.”
- If you have to choose between singing and acting?
“It’s hard to predict. However, as I get older, my throat ages too, the music flow that I can do, I’ll be unable to keep up with it with the same feeling. But in case of acting, you can do [better] when you’re in middle age. I can act when I get much older, and there will be still something new and challenging according to my age. Therefore, I think I’ll continue my acting career. I’ll continue to do music too, but I’m not sure how my music will be like or if I’ll continue to do music after 30 years.”
- Is there a director that you want to work with? Reason?
“Director Lee Jaehan of ‘A Moment to Remember’. I really enjoyed that movie of his. Because of it, I wrote a song. It’s the song called No Gain for Junsu. In the lyrics, there is this line, ‘I think the room in my heart is getting narrower’. I wrote it because of a line in the movie.”
- The plan for military service?
“I’ll go when I have to.”
- Other plans?
“Before the end of the year, I want to show to everyone my new work. Also, I want to date someone. If there is any nice girl, I want to go on a blind date too.”
- Have you ever gone to a blind date?
“Twice. But it didn’t lead to the dating. I went to a blind date but she turned out to be an idol-killer. She said that she has dated a member of a very famous idol group members and suggested a date later. That girl is really pretty, very nice. Her personality is also good. She has money too. But after hearing that story, I completely put an end to it. We didn’t date. For me, friendship goes first. There were close friends of mine dating her. They were all fooled by her.”
- Your ideal type?
“I don’t know. I think I need to meet more women. Because I don’t want just dating, I have to find a woman who can become my person, my lover. A person who only care about me like Younghui, but it will be good if it was a woman, not a friend. When I was young, I looked into appearance but not at the real appearance. Instead of appearance, the ‘manners’ are more important.”
