Kim Jaejoong has dubbed himself a jungle man.
During a recent interview in Apgujeong, Kim Jaejoong said, “I really want to appear in variety shows. PDs and screenwriters from broadcasting companies keep telling us that they want to have us on their shows. If one person takes charge and opens up the gates, wouldn’t we be able to appear on broadcasted variety shows?”
Park Yoochun had once garnered much attention for saying that he hoped to appear on SBS’ ‘Laws of the Jungle’. Kim Jaejoong also added, “I really want to appear in ‘Laws of the Jungle’ too.”
Kim Jaejoong said, “Jung Seok Won went to film for ‘Laws of the Jungle’. He told me about it two weeks before he left, and I said, ‘I really want to appear in Laws of the Jungle too…’ He must have passed the message along.”
Though Kim Jaejoong has the appearance of someone who’s only known the high life, he laughed and said, “I’m a complete jungle man. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t mind sleeping in cold places.” He added, “When we weren’t well off, there were cockroaches in our house and mice used to run over our bodies as we slept. That place was basically a jungle, so I think I’d be fine.”
Having made a transformation into a rocker, Kim Jaejoong showed his satisfaction as he said, “When I first chose rock as my preferred genre and set out to make an album, I didn’t think I’d be working with such great seniors who directed me and wrote songs for me. I received such great help and I was able to learn so much about the genre I have always liked.”
Though every song in Kim Jaejoong’s first solo mini album qualifies in the rock genre, each has its own infusion of Kim Jaejoong’s trendy style. From songs such as ‘One Kiss’ and ‘Mine’ that have an intense sound and charming vocals to melodious tracks that showcase his vocal talent, Kim Jaejoong’s album is receiving positive reviews.
Meanwhile, JYJ recently ended their lawsuit with SM Entertainment that had been going on for three years and four months. They also won their lawsuit against the Japanese agency AVEX, which has opened up their opportunities to pursue activities in Japan. Naturally, many are interested to see if JYJ will be able to appear on TV.

How skilled is ‘Game Mania’ Kim Jaejoong at games?
JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong held a press conference for his first solo album on the 22nd at the Mango Six in Apgujeong and said, “I really like playing games.”
He gave an abashed smile as he realized that the reporters had seen him lost in his smart phone games right up till the beginning of the interview.
Kim Jaejoong stated that the game he enjoyed these days was the smart phone game ‘All Together Now, Cha Cha Cha’ and his score is a whopping 670,000, proving his talents as a gamer.
He showed his affection for games as he said, “I’ve always liked playing games. In the basement of our office building, we have a Playstation and other gaming devices installed and I go there often to play.”
Kim Jaejoong also confessed, “These days, I think about dating someone. I write songs when I’m on a break, but I find it difficult because I don’t have many experiences with the pains of love,” and “I feel like I’ll write songs better if I like someone, care for them, fall for them, and then suffer the pains of our love ending.”
The legal battle between JYJ and SM Entertainment has finally come to an end!
After what seems like forever, the two sides are reported to have come to a mutual agreement on the 28th.
It is said that SM Entertainment and JYJ have both withdrawn all lawsuits against one another, and have agreed to not interfere with any of each other’s activities.
The long drawn out fight was started back in July 31st, 2009 when the initial lawsuit was filed against SM Entertainment by the three members of JYJ, who were part of TVXQ, requesting for the cancellation of their contracts. Since then, the two sides failed to reach an agreement every time and was due back in court again later this year.
It seems the legal battle is now over, and both sides, especially JYJ, can work towards moving forward free of the legal issues that had been holding them back.
C-JeS is set to debut a new girl group. As of now, the name is not yet revealed, but they are said to be the female version of JYJ.
