110414 JYJ Kim Jaejoong “I’ve Learnt About The Power of Time, As Well As to Relax”

Making a decision at a crossroad can sometimes be cruel. With results, come efforts as well. To choose between opposite sides is not easy at all, and because there is a difference in viewpoints adding onto the lack of a solid goal, happiness and sorrow often come together.

Standing at an important crossroad of his life, JYJ member Kim Jaejoong answered the question, “Are you satisfied with the situation now?” immediately with a relaxed smile. His answer was short and clear. “I understood how happy it is, to be so free.” Even so, it may still take around a year in order for him to find a balance. He experienced sudden changes to his surroundings, but he will no longer waver. This is because he realized it will be easier to accept reality, and he finds happiness in even the smallest things.

“I can talk about the past very calmly, and that is why I can put “JYJ from TVXQ” on my Twitter profile, and why I am still using a photograph of TVXQ as my mobile phone wallpaper.”

Jaejoong said, “One day, all of us will be together.” In the face of an uncertain future, he strongly believes that “Time will put everything in place.” About a year ago, he was always in a troubled state of mind, to an extent which he could not see a ‘tomorrow’ clearly. He then could never believe that one day he would be as happy as he is now, being able to challenge himself based on his wishes. He achieved a great deal of satisfaction from being the Concert Director of the World Tour Thailand stop on 2nd and 3rd of April. At the same time, he has other dreams.

I want to try acting in a television drama or a musical.” Another challenge that Kim Jaejoong has in his mind is acting. This is also what his fans are anticipating the most now. His management company, C-Jes, has also been planning his appearance in a domestic television drama for a long time. There are even almost-complete plans, such as *‘Goddess of War: Athena’ and ‘HanBanDo’.

“The company has mentioned quite a number of big-scale projects. They would say ‘Kim Jaejoong, this is what we have prepared for you’, and then they will place the documents (on the table). Sometimes, I would really like the projects, and sometimes, I think the projects would be too major for me to control. As I inch closer and closer to my dream, my desires are growing too. I believe that one day, the many things that I have prepared will finally take shape.”

Half of Kim Jaejoong’s dream is vaguely realized. He, together with Japanese actors like Ueno Juri and Eita, appeared in Japanese television drama, ‘Sunao ni Narenakute’. The other half of his dream is to appear in a domestic television drama.

“I hope to quickly appear in a domestic television drama, but it looks like this will require more time. However, I am not impatient. I am waiting for a suitable timing.”

He does not appear to be lacking in patience. The plans that were offered to him are also very major projects. Now, he hopes to encounter a project that suits him, regardless of whether the scale of the project is big or not. He knows well that in order not to disappoint fans, he must not appear in dramas with huge lineups or appear as a fairytale-like character. He believes, even if his role in the drama is small, it is important to be able to showcase mature acting skills. He did not lose his feelings of relaxation, saying “It is worrying, as there are just too many offers”.

Just a week after the interview, Kim Jaejoong revealed a photograph on twitter. In the photograph, his comrades Kim Junsu and Park Yuchun jokingly appeared to be fighting, as they held each other’s throats. Jaejoong also tweeted things like ‘So this is happiness!” and “There is a big problem, because their relationship is just too good!” Fans are also encouraging this 3 people who enjoy each other’s company in happiness. This made me recall what Jaejoong said at the end of the interview.

“I want to know if there are other times where I can be like what I am now, carrying a happy and worry-free heart, laughing this much. Everytime when I look towards Yuchun and Junsu, thinking ‘We only have ourselves’, there would be a pang of sadness in my heart. I am always thinking about how good it would be, to achieve things that we come up with ourselves. Some things, if they are there, they will always be there, if they are not there, there is no point forcing too. Fans who worried at the very beginning are all very understanding, and that is our fortune. Although I know what they are worried about, I hope they would just watch over us. Till now, we have been holding on. Even so, I believe in the power of time.”

*T/N: Jaejoong did not appear in Athena.
