JYJ Jaejoong’s Movie “The Jackal Is Coming” Is Based Off His Own Life?

JYJ‘s Kim Jaejoong recently attended the movie premiere of “The Jackal is Coming“, which is a story about a legendary killer named Bong Min Jung (played by Song Ji Ho) who kidnaps celebrity Choi Hyun (played by Kim Jaejoong himself) and the comical events that happen to them. 

This was a special moment for JYJ’s Jaejoong who was anticipating his debut on the big screen. Interestingly enough, Jaejoong played a character that was closely based on his own life: a “flower boy” celebrity named Choi Hyun who encounters a Sasaeng fan (a rather extreme fan who pushes boundaries to get close to the stars they adore). 

In fact, his character Choi Hyun faces life-threatening situations with Sasaeng fans, as well as an invasion of privacy- even in the very place he lies his head to go to sleep. 

When asked if Jaejoong himself could related to Choi Hyun’s situation, he responded with, “There are fans who are extreme as that. I am sure that every celebrity has encountered Sasaeng fans just as we did.” He offered no elaboration, seeing as how they were many sensitive Sasaeng fan issues that came to light in the public this past year.
