The untold stories about Kim Jaejoong’s Fanmeeting in Vietnam

Posted: 20 Nov 2012 07:55 AM PST


Vietnamese reporters didn't agree… Jaejoong is still young

At the press conference which took place at Nikko hotel before the Fanmeeting, there's quite an interesting Q-A session between Jaejoong and Vietnamese reporters. There was one particular question which was: "When will you get married?". After listing so many reasons why he has yet married (the fact is that he had that intention when he was young but not now), Jaejoong said to reporters he thought he was still young, "just 27 years old", therefore the fact that he's still single isn't weird, right? At that moment, almost all reporters reponded at the same time "No", which made Jaejoong nearly lay down the table due to embarrassment.

Having dinner at the Vietnamese restaurant without being recognized

The only one time Jaejoong was recognized when eating out

After having arrived in Vietnam on 9th October, this Hallyu star relaxed at the hotel and… adventurously went to hotel's restaurant to have dinner at night. It was quite strange that at that night, although many Vietnamese fans and international fans have checked in this 5 star hotel and continuously took the corner, they and even Vietnamese paparazzi couldn't identify when Jaejoong had dinner at this hotel's restaurant – a public place. That was also one of the two times that Jaejoong was eating out because he mostly ate in his room and called 'PHỞ' and Japanese sushi twice a day. Phở which is serviced at this hotel reached the prize of 250.000 VNĐ with a super big bowl. Maybe that was the reason why Jaejoong said his face seemed to swell up when eating "PHỞ" in Vietnam.

There's a "fake Jaejoong" following Jaejoong

In his days in Vietnam, in order to avoiding fans and Vietnamese paparazzi from stalking, Korean staffs arranged a "fake Jaejoong" following Jaejoong to distract attention. Clearly in the night of 9th –10th November, when Jaejoong's car went into SECC (district 7) for rehearsal, "fake Jaejoong' appeared first, wearing an green hooded overcoat, immediately fans paid their attention to him and consecutively scream Jaejoong. But after that, a real Jaejoong in a black coat came out and went inside quickly, not many fans and reporters can react in time in this surprising situation, so there's very little article had close-up pictures of Jaejoong in that night.

Disabled fans


Since Vietnamese fans have waited for a long time for Jaejoong's visit to Vietnam, almost nobody missed chances to buy tickets of his fanmeeting on 10th November. There were quite a lot of special fans appearing in the fanmeeting, such as a disabled-handed girl (who was very lucky to go onstage and was fed by Jaejoong ), a little girl followed by her dad so that it was easier for her to be taken care of, another disabled girl who came with mom and sister (then her mother went outside and waited until the end of the fanmeeting), a pregnant woman or even a whole family who were all Jaejoong's fans. International fans followed Jaejoong from place to place, and so did in Vietnam, there were many fans from Korea, Japan, Thailand, Australia… attending SECC.

Comments from the two "most close" to Jaejoong

MC Manh Tung (right) and Jaejoong

Noone else other than MC Manh Tung and Mrs. Nguyen Ngoc Tram Oanh–the deputy head of department of Korean Studies of Social Sciences and Humanities University – the translator for Jaejoong on 10th November. MC Manh Tung shared with us: "I was lucky to have interaction with Jaejoong from the rehearsal and had a great impression on him. Before Jaejoong stepped onto the rehearsal stage, the scene I shook hands with Jaejoong was included in the script but the Korean company wanted to skip it. However, surprisingly, when Jaejoong went on stage, he approached each one of us, bowed and shook hands with everyboby on stage. Jaejoong was not feeling well at that time but he still sang two songs live during reheasal".

 Mrs. Tram Oanh and Jaejoong


Mrs. Tram Oanh told us: "I have translated for many Korean artists before like Kim Ha Neul, Song Seun Hung, Vietnam-Korea Film Festival… but translating for a famous idol like Jaejoong is the first time.My impression of him is the same as what you saw on stage: he's polite, cute and really really loves his fans. According to the Korean crew and my own feelings, in Vietnam, Jaejoong was quite happy and seemed to have the best mood compared to in other countries so he made me happy, too".

Movie “Code Name: Jackal” of Kim Jaejoong – 3 viewpoints

Posted: 20 Nov 2012 07:30 AM PST



The movie of Kim Jaejoong, by Kim Jaejoong and for Kim Jaejoong
Firstly, it's a must-watch if you're Kim Jaejoong's fan. During 1 hour 40 minutes of running time, you can watch the scenes of Kim Jaejoong that you almost never get to watch. Thanks to the fact that he appears in the movie as a Hallyu star, ever since the beginning of the movie, his songs are repeated over and over. Singing, dancing, acting cute, crying, getting angry, you can enjoy all these scenes of Kim Jaejoong. And the scene where he bared the upper body will make many fans' hearts tremble.

Catch the reversal code
Actor Oh Dalsu explained the view point of the movie as "the movie which brings a great pleasure of reversal." Although the whole story means for the reversal, the audience might feel that it's a little bit weak. Above all, the biggest reversal (?) should be Kim Jaejoong and Kim Sungryung's kiss scene. Kim Jaejoong revealed, "Because sunbae-nim made it comfortable for me, we were able to well finish the scene without tension."

The showcase of various styles of characters
Oh Dalsu, Kim Sungryung, Han Sangjin, etc. the appearance of these famous supporting actors added more fun to the movie. In addition, many other characters will give you big laugh, such as the stalker who stubbornly follows Choi Hyun, the policewoman who provides the clue to resolve the problem, the inflexible manager of Paradise Hotel, etc. However, the appearance of too many characters might become a disadvantage.
