JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong(25) went hiking for his first domestic drama.
He traveled to nearby suburbs for a two-day-long bonding trip with the cast of SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’.
Kim Jaejoong said, “The first time that I arrived on location, it felt so awkward that I couldn’t approach my fellow cast members,” and “At that time, Ji Sung brightened up the atmosphere. Ji Sung hyung is someone who believes that actors have to be close to work well together, so he planned a bonding trip for all of us.”
He also added, “Five of us(Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee, Wang Ji Hae, Lee Hui Won) went hiking together and shared lots of stories,” and “After we were done with our hiking expedition, I sang for a talent contest we had, and I was so embarrassed.” He continued to reminisce as he laughed and said, “It might be okay for other people to mess up their singing to make it funny or interesting, but I felt like I couldn’t mess up, so I remember doing my best as I sang.”
But he said that he had it better than others. “Wang Ji Hae had to show off her singing skills twice because she sang during the bonding trip and then she had to sing in front of her acting seniors.”
Kim Jaejoong says he is slowly getting used to filming for his drama and said, “I feel relaxed around everyone now,” and “Nowadays, I sometimes exchange texts or phone calls with Choi Kang Hee noona.”
He thanked Ji Sung as he added, “Ji Sung hyun calls me over to rehearse together when we don’t have any filming to do,” and “He’s been giving me a lot of help on my acting.”
Kim Jaejoong will be playing Cha Mu Won, the ‘prince of the financial world’. Though he is cousins with Cha Ji Hun(Ji Sung), he is in an antagonistic relationship with his cousin because of the feud between their parents over running the family business. The drama will begin airing on the 3rd of August.
