Other than the main couples ‘BoBi Couple’ and ‘NaMu Couple’, the ‘Cha Cha Couple’ were a hot topic amongst fans. The ‘Cha Cha Couple’ refers to Cha Ji Hun (Ji Sung) and Cha Mu Won (Kim Jaejoong), who competed against each other to become the successor of DN Group and also to win the heart of a woman.
The two cousins would fight and bicker like children most of the time but would also take care of each other.
In real life, Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong became great friends through the drama and have continued their friendship even though the drama is over. During the press conference of ‘Protect the Boss’, Ji Sung became a hot topic for stating, “On the first day that I met Kim Jaejoong, we ended up sleeping in the same room in only our underwear. We didn’t feel uncomfortable about it but when we woke up the next day and weren’t under the influence of alcohol anymore, it got a little awkward. But through that, we became much closer and we’re at ease when we film together.”
In a recent meeting with reporters, Kim Jaejoong showed his gratitude as he said, “I was able to do better because of Ji Sung. People who have seen the drama will have seen Kim Jaejoong get better every episode. I don’t think this would have been possible if Ji Sung wasn’t there. He must have been so busy studying his own character but he would take the time to take care of me and help me run my lines. I learned a lot every episode, we were at ease around each other and I’m sure it showed on TV.”
According to a representative, the two have kept in touch since the end of the drama and have met up to spend time with each other.
The entire staff and cast of ‘Protect the Boss’, not only Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong, were infamous for being close.Though they were probably worn out from filming non stop, there was no trouble on location and it was later said that filming was completed in high spirits. Kim Jaejoong also revealed, “Our lights director has gone to work on KBS’ Poseidon’. He said he’d kill me if I didn’t show up to the after party of the drama so I’m planning on visiting on location of the drama.”
