Jaejoong shows appreciation thru a 'proof shot'

Posted: 20 Jul 2014 03:00 AM PDT



JYJ's Jaejoong showed how he appreciates the support and love that he is getting from his local and international fans for his great portrayal in 'Triangle.'

The photo above is intended to show as a proof that he received the cake that his Arabs supporters sent to him. On the photo, his happiness is shown in his eyes.   

'Triangle' is top-billed by Lee Bum Soo, JYJ's Kim Jaejoong, and ZE:A's Im Siwan. Its story revolves on the three brothers played by Lee Bum Soo as the eldest named Jang Dong-soo, Jaejoong as Jang Dong-chul is the middle brother, and the youngest is Siwan's character named as Jang Dong-woo. The three were unfortunately separated when they were young after their parents were killed in an accident. After twenty years, they meet again without knowing their connection with each other.

Jang Dong-soo (Lee Bum-soo) became a detective just like his father, and is searching for his two younger siblings. Jang Dong-chul (Kim Jaejoong) became a leader of a gang and uses Heo Young-dal as his other name. Jang Dong-woo (Im Siwan) has no memory of his biological family, but was adopted by a wealthy chaebol family, so he uses the name Yoon Yang-ha.

'Triangle' airs on MBC every Monday and Tuesday at 22:00 KST.
