‘Following the step of Micky Yoochun, this time is Youngwoong Jaejoong!”
Member of idol group JYJ, Youngwoong Jaejoong is noted as first priority choice of drama representative to debut in Korean drama thus drawn a lot of attention.
Youngwoong Jaejoong who’s recently been active as an idol is known to be the priority choice of a company representative of an upcoming Korean drama. Although there are number of other popular idols being under consideration, among them Youngwoong Jaejoong is called an ‘instant hit of catch’, a common phrase in the drama industry.
The drama company official, “Youngwoong Jaejoong starred in a Japanese drama ‘Sunao Ni Narenakute’ just before, and he became highly popular in Japan.” and “The drama public relation considers this popularity of Youngwoong Jaejoong really important as this upcoming Korean drama production is highly targeting Japanese market, thus he attracts their attention and becomes their first priority choice.”
Also, through his previous movie ‘Heaven’s Postman’ and Japanese drama debut ‘Sunao ni Narenakute’, unlike other idols turn actors who are facing controversy in their acting skills, Youngwoong Jaejoong showed a relatively stable performance in his first attempt and received warm reviews from local media, which becomes his big advantage too of getting the cast.
Yet when the representative of Youngwoong Jaejoong commented regarding this issue, “It’s true that there are a lot of offers to him to appear in drama. In fact, we have planned him to act in local TV. However, nothing yet to be confirmed, it’s still under discussion.”
If Youngwoong Jaejoong is actually cast in the drama, then he will be the second JYJ member to act in Korean drama after his fellow member Micky Yoochun who just debuted in KBS 2TV drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, the cast of Youngwoong Jaejoong in Korean drama will be a hot topic and attract a lot of anticipation.
