I became a fan of Kim Jae Joong through his music. Back in 2009-2010, I’d listen to DBSK/TVXQ all the time. I loved all of their voices, but I was especially fond of Jaejoong’s voice & looks – yep, he was my bias ;D. I loved it when they sang a capella, and I loved how I could always hear their true voices rather than all that techno-y stuff they have out these days. I’d search on Youtube for anything I could find on him, watch every music video. I watched their “mini” band shows, concerts, variety clips, fun things with them together – Everything ♥. He stole my heart during those years and still holds a big piece of it ( now he needs to share with others lol). Jaejoong is probably the only actor/person I have ever seen who looks beautiful in every single picture♥. And he looks good in every hair color too ^_^
It just came out this year, but I think it has surpassed all of his previous works ;D. I loved his character Yeong Dal/Dong Cheol. I have to admit, I wasn’t all that fond of him during the first episodes because he didn’t have a vision besides that of living like trash. But as the drama goes on I gradually started seeing the “real” him and all his hurts and scars, and how he matures and grows and falls in love, and how he finds a goal to live for. That to me was a big part of what made this drama special for me. I loved the romance, and the bromance between him and his older brother ♥. It’s about 3 brothers who separated and then ended up meeting by fate after a long time. Each of them led very different lives. (I felt the most for KJJ’s character).
Protect the Boss (2011)
KJJ plays Cha Moo Won (the second lead). He is very competitive towards his cousin played by Ji Sung. This is the only drama where I have seen a male “cat-fight” – it was extremely hilarious ;). Besides the cute bromance between the 2 cousins, there comes our female lead whom both of these gorgeous men are after. I never shipped Jajoong with her though; she didn’t match him lol. I shipped him with our second female lead played by Wang Ji Hye. This drama is very entertaining and enjoyable to watch.
Time Slip Dr. Jin (2012)
KJJ stars as Kim Kyung Tak (again the second leading male). This is a medical and time travel drama, and I personally enjoyed it ;). Kim Jaejoong’s character was the illegitimate son of a concubine to a nobleman who desperately wanted to be loved by his father. It comes to a point in the drama when he has to choose which side to stand on: with his father who doesn’t love him, or with his friends who truly care about him. That alone was reason enough for me to watch this drama.
Sunao ni Narenakute (2010)
If I were the girl in this drama I would choose Kim Jae Joong’s character – he was SO adorable^^.
“This is a story about the blossoming friendship of five young people who were brought together by Twitter, and their journey to finding honesty with each other and with themselves.” – It pretty much sums it up. My favorite character was Park Seonsu played by Kim Jae Joong. He was the reason I watched this drama too (I couldn’t find it online so I bought it). Seonsu lives with his younger sister & has a crush on our lead female ;). It’s been awhile since I watched this drama but I was fangirling over Jaejoong the whole time^^ He is so innocent and cute in this show ♥♥
Postman to Heaven (2009)
I believe this was the first “real” movie/drama I watched Jaejoong in, and I loved it ;). Jaejoong plays a man who is outside his body working in order to stay alive. He meets Han Hyo Joo‘s character Ha Na and they work together for 14 days and in the process they fall in love ♥. There isn’t anything “exciting” about this show, it’s a melo, peaceful but amazing.
(When I watched it I thought it was a couple of episodes… I later bought the movie, but it felt like stuff I had seen when I watched it online was missing… So if you see the “longer” one – watch that one instead b/c it makes more sense lol.)
Kim Jae Joong plays an NIS genius analyst on North Korea Information, Things get complicated though, when his mother’s former co-worker from North Korea tries to get her to recruit her son into espionage activity O.O. She’ll do anything, even risk her life to protect her son from this person. I personally found this drama rather boring… hopefully he’ll come back with a better drama later.
His Mini dramas with his old band:
Dangerous Love (2006) – (my favorites were Xiah & Max on this one) Hero, a.k.a. Kim Jae Joong’s character, reads a fanfic about him and his bandmate U-know and becomes wary of his intentions towards him lol (this is my personal favorite out of dbsk’s mini dramas)
The Univited Guest – (2006) Mystery surrounds this one; the band’s music is deleted so they have to re-record everything. Before that someone has sent them threatening letters and destroyed some of their personal items – they have to solve the case. It was pretty funny 😉 (I watched all these a long time ago)
Unforgettable Love – (2006) – While U-Know happily goes on a date, Hero, Micky, Max and Xiah talk about their first loves, revealing mystery, humour, tears, and danger. (my second favorite?) Their stories were hilarious 😉
Vacation – (2006) The members are stressed out, so they take a break & go on a “vacation” – they each have their own adventure.
Codename: Jackal – (2012) A contract killer played by Song Ji Hyo is supposed to kill a popular singer played by Jaejoong, but fails to do so (honestly I only watched this for Jaejoong – I wouldn’t watch it again b/c to me it was quite stupid).
Dating On Earth – (2010) Jaejoong is a transfer student who lost his parents when he was young and was brought up in an orphanage. In the movie, Jaejoong falls for his class advisor, and that forms a love triangle with Yoochun – the class advisor’s husband. (I really liked this one).
My Favorite Songs of his/his band’s:
When he sings sends me to heaven ♥ He is extraordinarily talented ♥
He was a member of DBSK/TVXQ 5 or so years ago but they split. Jaejoong, Yoochun & Xiah formed a new band called JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) – Jaejoong has also done a few solo albums (I was sad when I heard their old band split but I’m at least glad they split the way they did as Jaejoong, Yoochun & Xiah (Junsu) were my favorites – I’m glad those 3 stayed together).
I’ll Protect You (Protect the Boss OST)
Even Though I Hate (Triangle OST)
