Kim Jaejoong – “I’m worried that the atmosphere at the filming set of Boss is too good”, Why?Kim Jaejoong’s first domestic drama ‘Protect the Boss’ is a romantic comedy in which, the heroine, who was struggling with unemployment, after much vicissitudes, gets a job as a part-time secretary for the hero, a delinquent boss of a conglomerate.In this drama Kim Jaejoong plays Cha MuWon, the Prince of Financial World who has powerful capabilities. He is proficient in business and gentle but also cold and cool-headed. He may have his mysterious side but when he encounters his older cousin, he can also show his childishly innocent side.Regarding the fact that the character is slightly different with the image he has shown, in response to the question “Isn’t the character a little different from you?” he chuckled while saying, “Do you know me?” Thanks to his unique personality, this interview, or rather, this teatime, passed without knowing its boundaries. He explained his character, “I’m a little funny” “Cha MuWon is a character that even the person close to him can’t understand. He knows everything in this world and is very insightful. He’s also rich in knowledge.”Also “About the difference: First, I’m not a prince. I’m rather down-to-earth while he seems to be too refined. He has an extreme air of nobleness. I think he’s a little different with me in the way he conducts his business and also in his neat and efficient actions. It seems that I don’t have such an aristocratic side. However, we have the same appearance”.Regarding the tight filming schedule that he must live with for the next few months, he expressed a determined resolution, “I’m prepared for that and my stamina is still plentiful. Yoochun continuously tells me that I’m going to suffer, that I won’t be able to sleep”.Luckily, the atmosphere at the filming set is extremely good. Especially, Ji Sung, Park YoungKyu and others are very mindful of him. They treat each other meals and snacks. Also, recently Jaejoong came to play with Ji Sung and slept over his place. Main actress Choi KangHee also takes care of the youngest actor by sometimes sending message to ask after him.As for the congeniality of the filming set, Kim Jaejoong repeated many times, “It’s so good that I’m worried”. He disclosed, “This is my first time to appear in domestic drama but I can work with such awesome staffs and actors, what to do if I don’t have a chance like that in my next drama? If you start with good thing, how hard will it be in the future?”Then he added, “I think that I’m lucky. I was so lucky while filming Japanese drama too. Among the actors who work together, if the coordination or the membership is not good, the drama can’t come out well. But [in my case] it’s very good. We’re really like a family.”Ji Sung, who plays the playful and delinquent chaebol Cha JiHun, told Kim Jaejoong, “I’ll take all ‘wrecking’ parts, all the glory is yours.” But Kim Jaejoong expressed his thoughts, “Although my character is very cool, Cha JiHun is also attractive. Therefore I don’t have the confidence to appeal to Choi KangHee-sshi later”.Kim Jaejoong said, “I had no desire to be leading actor, it’s the same for now. I think that what is important is how well you can bring the character to life. I want to be acknowledged first as an actor who can bring the character to life with relish. I’m not ambitious to take charge of leading role.”Source: NewsenTranslation by: The_Little_Pear of JYJ3Shared by: JYJ3
Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong, How Did They Become So Friendly?“The first night, we slept together just in our underwear.”Actor Ji Sung revealed the long story of the first time he met with JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, and how he was able to get along very well with Jaejoong. On July 21st Ji Sung had an interview with Star News and said, “Before shooting of the drama, the actors and the crew went out together for a meal. It was then that I first met Jaejoong. We had a dinner and we also drank, which made us get sleepy so we ended up sleeping together in one room.”He continued, “In the room, there was only one lonely king sized bed. Either way it was the bed, so I wanted to sleep on it too. However, it was really hot so without any hesitation, both of us took off our clothes and slept in our underwear and through this we naturally become friendly and familiar to one another”, Ji Sung said laughing.[brief description of drama omitted]Ji Sung further stated, “As a singer Jaejoong has risen very high, but as an actor he is taking his first steps and is now playing the role of the younger child when we are on set. He is thoroughly analyzing his character, showing us a professional awareness and his feelings of responsibility. Jaejoong is very eager, not only me but he strives hard to accommodate with Park Yong Kyu, Cha Hwa Yun, and with all of the staff too. And he’s working through very seriously. If he is able to present his new acting at a even level, I think that would be good.”source: osen.co.krcredit: kecyabulnttrans+shared by: sharingyoochun.net

Interview with JYJ’s Jaejoong in Khan NewsKhan News recently held an interview with Kim Jaejoong. The interview discussed the premise behind “Protect the Boss,” as well as the preparations and anxiety that Jaejoong had to face for the drama. The translated article from Khan News can be found below:Because he had been spending his entire day filming for his drama “Protect the Boss,” he did not even have time to eat at all. However, he also said that he did not have much of an appetite anyway. Although Jaejoong has maintained his image of being a singer, this will be his first time acting in a drama. Because of this, he is actually very nervous.August 3rd will mark the debut of Jaejoong as a 2nd generation businessman, Cha Muwon, in the drama “Protect the Boss”. Although Jaejoong has acted in the telecinema “Heaven’s Postman” and in the Japanese drama, “Sunao Ni Narenakute,” since this will be his first Korean drama, this can still be seen as his first time acting in a drama.Jaejoong stated, “During the JYJ World Tour, I was reading the script for this drama and I thought it was hilarious. The writers have taken a normally serious business setting and turned it into something very fun. I also like the fact that each character seems to have their own role that breathes life into the drama.”“Protect the Boss” is a romantic comedy that centers around the protagonist, Eunsul, played by actress Choi Kanghee, who is a freeloader that begins to work in the business industry with hilarity ensuing. Jaejoong’s role of Cha Muwon is a bit foolish but is also a “chadonam” (cold and chic city guy). This character is someone who may have the same qualities as Joowon from “Secret Garden” and Dok Gojin from “The Greatest Love”. For this reason, Jaejoong purposely did not watch those two dramas. Instead of watching those dramas, Jaejoong ended up watching the movie “Mutt Boy” many times. After watching veteran actors like Kim Gabsoo, who is currently acting in the sitcom “All My Love,” Jaejoong thought that would also want to try roles similar to what he saw in the movie.Although Yoochun is a fellow member of Jaejoong in JYJ, he is still a sunbae in terms of dramas as he has acted in both “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and “Miss Ripley”. Jaejoong said, “I get lots of questions about whether I will be able to do better than Yoochun. This is, of course, a lot of pressure for me, but Yoochun is my sunbae. When Yoochun was filming for dramas, he had to deal with a ‘death schedule’. Because of this, Yoochun told me, ‘Hyung, it’s your turn to die’.”Kim Jaejoong has also shown his abilities in being a director. In the recent JYJ World Tour Concert 2011 and Son Yeonjae’s (the female gymnast) rhythm gymnastics show, Jaejoong showed his abilities in directing to everyone. Because he was also a singer who would be performing on the stage that he was directing for, he was able to think of many ideas for the performance.Although there have been many opportunities for Jaejoong to show off his abilities in many different areas, he still feels sad. This sadness is also felt by his other JYJ members. This is because they are not able to promote their songs freely as other singers do.Jaejoong stated, “Although we have lots of issues with our activities as a singer, we have tried to accept and deal with these problems. Luckily, we have been trying other fields, like acting and musicals, and we are able to learn a lot from these experiences. I believe that it is very fun to find where my talents lie as I go through life. Even if it’s a small thing, if I am able to find the joy in it, I can make other people watching happy as well.”source: Khancredit: koreaboo

‘Protect the Boss’ cast members’ comments about Jaejoong
Ji SungI’ve been involved in media and have seen a lot but, my relationship with Kim Jaejoong is one formed after sleeping together in underwear right after our first meeting. That was probably planned by the staff to get us closer together, everyone was talking and drinking together until the male staff and the actresses wanted to sleep so we split into pairs for each room slept two. When we opened the door and went into the room we found only one king size bed so we were both troubled. We both said, “Let’s just sleep” and laid down next to each other on the bed after turning on the air conditioning, but it was still too hot. While we were sleeping, both of us started taking our clothes off, and because we were drunk we were comfortable. Once we woke up though, I remember we both smiled at each other embarrassed but after that I became a closer friend to Kim Jaejoong. Because of that we can carry on filming very comfortably. Also, even though Kim Jaejoong who is in the present doing great activities as a member of JYJ, when he’s at the location of the filming he shows us his determination and as a newcomer he’s lovable. So all of us, the seniors, the teachers think its wonderful that he’s a part of our team, a little brother who deserves respect, our junior, who gives our team energy.
Choi KangheeYoungwoong Jaejoong, in the drama is Cha Muwon. From my standing he is like the long-legged man who I depend on (T/N: reference to the anime ‘My Daddy Long Legs’). To me, Cha Muwon who I call “Mununimu” (T/N: not sure of spelling) is on the same rank as “Hununimu” (God)…Wang JihyeAfter being involved in a love relationship with Jihun in the past, she’s in a relationship where she enjoys the rebellious passion with Muwon.

Kim Jaejoong, “Targeting New Actor Award? I Have No Desire.”
JYJ’s member and actor Kim Jaejoong expressed his zero desire for the new actor award.Kim Jaejoong revealed his thoughts on debuting in domestic drama at the production press conference held on the 27th afternoon at Seoul’s SBS Mu Dong building for SBS new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect The Boss’ (Script by Kwon Ki Young and directed by Son Jung Hyun).Although he had acting experiences through last year’s Japan Fuji TV’s ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’ and acted with Han Hyo Joo in the movie ‘Heaven’s Postman’, but it is his first act in domestic drama and thus had the extraordinary sentiment.Kim Jaejoong expressed, “It seems that I am starting to have the desire to achieve the new actor award but since this is my first challenge, isn’t it bad to have the thought of getting the award?”, “I have never gotten any other award in school other than the perfect attendance award.”He continued humbly, “I am working at this as a total new acting experience and therefore I am learning a lot from the senior actors such as Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee, Wang Ji Hye etc.”He talked about the difference between acting in Japan and domestically, “Acting in Japan was not done with my native language and on the contrary, my burden was lessened.

To this, he said, “Have to practice on not sleeping due to the overnight filming. After the conclusion of this work, I plan to go on a holiday with the members.”Kim Jaejoong is acting as the composed Cha Mu Won who is the 3rd generation of the conglomerate and his character surrounds the power struggle and involvement with Ji Sung’s Cha Ji Hyun, who is related as first cousin.He relayed his thoughts, saying, “When I first joined in, I envied the free-spirited and a bit nonsensical character of Cha Ji Hyun.” He continued, “I am still unable to adapt and have to act according to the director’s expressions. The other actors are doing very well and it seems that if I am able to work hard, it will be fine.”‘Protect The Boss’ which involves Ji Sung, Kim Jaejoong, Choi Kang Hee, Wang Ji Hye etc, will be taking over the broadcast timeslot of SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘City Hunter’, premiering on the 3rd of August.source: ntn.seoulcredit: jaetimetrans by: rachui@sharingyoochun
