JYJ member Kim Jaejoong showed his close friendship with Kim Hyunjoong.
In a recent interview with Seoul News NTN. Kim Jaejoong talks about interesting episodes between himself and Kim Hyunjoong, who are both same-age friends in the entertainment circle.
On this day, when Kim Jaejoong was talking about being a director for concerts, he was asked, “What if you were to be the director for another artist’s concert?” Jaejoong thought about this question for a while, then asked the reporter, “How about Kim Hyunjoong?” Kim Jaejoong said, “He will probably do it himself, although I’m not sure if he will do a concert or not, but it’s possible that he might do it.”
“A few days ago, while drinking with Kim Hyunjoong, we talked about when we could possibly record an album together, and actually this has been a topic that we had discussed much earlier before. Then, Kim Hyunjoong had not signed a contract with a new agency yet so there was a rumour that he would join our company, but somehow, we talked about it again (Laughs)”
Kim Jaejoong also said “Working with Kim Hyunjoong should be very interesting, and it would be nice to hold a concert together, not for profit but just for the fans. If I were to direct that, there should be no problems.”
Aside from Kim Hyunjoong, Kim Jaejoong and soccer player Jung Tae-Se, actors Song Joong Ki, Im Ju Hwan, Park Ji Bin, as well as Japan’s Ayumi Hamasaki, Yamashita Tomohisa and Shirota Yu were photographed together, earning him the nickname “Entertainment Network King” with “Crazy (amount of) contacts”
When talking about this, Kim Jaejoong waved his hands and said “I’m really not a network king”
“Korean artists and Japanese artists do make contact with each other, but it doesn’t happen often. I too don’t have a lot of friends, but it so happens that my friends are very famous. My friends are mostly interested in fashion, dance and acting, and we have common interests and points of views so we naturally became friends.”
Also, Kim Jaejoong will be making his debut as an actor, playing the role of the “Prince of the Financial World” Cha Mu Won “Protect the Boss,” which airs on 3 August.
