In spite of the dangers of getting facial scars during filming, idol star and representative “flower boy,” JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong did all of his action scenes with determination.
In MBC’s weekend drama “Dr. Jin,” Kim Jaejoong has been challenging himself by taking part as Joseon’s Palace Investigator Kim Gyung Tak. As Kim Gyung Tak, Kim Jaejoong has been putting his all into this drama.
JYJ’s management, C-JeS Entertainment stated on June 20, “Kim Jaejoong wasted no time; as soon as he received the script he registered himself in action school and practiced very hard in horse back riding. As for sword fighting, instead of just swinging his sword around, he also took the time to study and understand the movements.”
Even after filming scenes, Kim Jaejoong did not let go of the sword. Since Kim Gyung Tak is an outstanding swordsman in the drama, Kim Jaejoong did not want to make it awkward for his character.
As a result of his dedication, his injuries are worrisome. C-JeS Entertainment stated, “Because he is using the sword so much in the drama, he cuts himself many times while he is filming. Evne though it happens, he is not afraid of getting hurt. He did not even want to use a stuntman for his first scene of shooting.”
A staff member of the drama praised Kim Jaejoong stating,” Whenever he can do it, Kim JaeJjong would like to do it for himself instead of using a stuntman.”
Be sure to catch Kim Jaejoong’s character Kim Gyung Tak in action on MBC, Saturday & Sunday @ 21:50 KST!
