In a recent interview with Seoul NTN, JYJ’s Jaejoong showed off his friendship with SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong by discussing the possibility of a future album together.

Jaejoong was asked, “If you were to direct the concert of another artist, who would you choose?” Since he and Kim Hyun Joong are famous for being friends of the same age, the reporter suggested Kim Hyun Joong. Jaejoong replied, “That friend will probably try to do everything on his own. I’m not sure whether he’ll take up directing, but I think he will sooner or later.”

He continued, “I went out to drink with Kim Hyun Joong a few days ago and we talked about putting out an album together. We’ve actually been talking about that for some time now, which is why there were rumors of him joining our agency when he wasn’t under a label (laughter). I think it’d be fun working with him, though. Putting aside the profit aspect of it, I want to throw a concert with him for our fans. I can direct it.”

At the mention of the long list of his celebrity friends, he replied, “Korean celebrities do get in contact with Japanese celebrities, but it’s probably not a frequent occurrence. I, too, don’t have a lot, and it’s just that all my friends are famous people. My friends have a lot of interest in fashion, dance, and acting. People of the same profession have similar mindsets, so I naturally become friends with them.”

Young! From the start of Park Jung Min’s eyes expression, the youngster who turned matured returned with his unique sense of cheerfulness, although he cannot hide his innocence.

We can still find Park Jung Min’s bright smile in the studio despite his busy overseas schedule. Cheerful and charismatic young man, He looks like an eight colour sparrow (T/N: It means beautiful) from his fashionable appearance to all aspects, everyone said that they have been mesmerized by his colourful appearance.

Jung Min recently completed filming a mobile drama ‘Love Song in August’ in Japan. He started a conversation with Sakai Miki whom acted in ‘Love letter’ from the start of filming when they began to worry about the topic of kissing scene.

‘Kissing scene started in the first filming. I felt uneasy because I have to play a one-night stand role when I do not have much communicate with the actress yet. But, because the filming started off with a love scene, so all the unnatural feeling disappeared after that and it was much easier to perform.”

In the drama, Hallyu idol will also require to act. He admitted frankly “Although I felt that the personality of the Hallyu idol should fit (the drama), however because of the national (Korean culture) relationship, I would not do that. And while acting the overreach romantic behaviour, it was a little too awkward.”

“I originally had hand sweats, but after consuming some hyperhidrosis medicine, it (hands) wouldn’t be sticky on that day. And because of the sweats, I had to apologize to the actress every time when there is a scene of skin-to-skin contact, there were many embarrassing scene!”

This is the first time he challenge a drama, he expressed his uneasiness and excitement from the beginning till the end. Especially when there is a topic on acting, he will show up his sincerity look suddenly, it feels like he is the real genius actor.

“Genius actor? This is because of a long learning process. There were much confusion during (acting) lesson. One must adjust their emotion when they are acting. Genius cannot deal with these emotions properly. Previously when I was acting in a musical, I learned how to coordinate the importance of breathing with each other and also the way of concentrating in different venue. One must naturally expressed the acting skills when they are seizing one’s heart and mind. This is the biggest training in acting”

Park Jung Min did not show off his skills. Although he doesn’t need to act much of ‘from the heart’ scene, but he revealed his belief and uses “Only when you show off your sincerity (in acting), this can be called real acting” as his motto. This is when he was acting in Musical Grease, not because of he himself was being look upon highly by others, but it was due to the coordination of the entire work, and Park Jung Min earned a successful ending (from the musical).

“It has already started. But in my opinion, apart from the professional stage, singers require the skills of acting. Thus, I started just like that. Songs are like expressing the joys and sorrows in life, so as a singer, we have to put in feeling, and then we naturally need the skill of acting. The reason why I personally wrote the lyrics (for my songs) is because I hope to sing out my feelings.”

Park Jung Min’s childhood dream is to become an actor, he already understood the fact that he needs to unleash the need of acting skills on the stage when he became an idol, so from then onwards, he officially accept the challenge of acting and declared that he aspired to become an actor daringly. And now, he also reached his ultimate goal of wanting to become an actor.

“Other people wish to become like their role models as a target. I particularly do not have a special role model. I will bring my own self-esteem to attempt; I hope I can be the dream (role model) of anyone.” He boldly hints his owns determination.

During the honey-like time with him alone, and discussed in depth about his investment in acting and as a lyricist. The reason why he can become the attention of the Asia’s new generation leader is because he is improving and updating himself consistently.
