Kim Jaejoong Talks About Friendship - Excerpts from JYJ Magazine Volume 2

Source: Jaetaku Tumblr

About Jaejoong’s Friends.

Jaejoong has a wider circle of acquaintances than Yuchun and Junsu. Nowadays, he often meets Jang Geun-seok. His house where he recently moved in is only 2 minutes away from Jang Geun-seok’s, so they meet almost every day. Jaejoong said “In some ways, he is incompatible with me though, this comes as his charm to me, so we mix very well.” Birds of feather flock together? There must be something why these two Hallyu stars get along well with each other.

Jaejoong said “Geun-seok is straightforward, too. He does not talk around. He’s frank. At first it was hard [to be friends with him], but now he’s a congenial friend of mine. We both like chattering and meeting casually at home. On Parents’ Day I sent sets of *Goolbi (Yellow Dried Corvina) to Yuchun, Junsu, and Geun-seok’s parents, and then Geun-seok came to my house with the Goolbi he grilled and we had a drink. Actually we both had a drink yesterday, too. We drained 18 bottles just for beer. Nowadays I don’t often see HyungJoong but, he is a friend of mine that I don’t feel sorry even if I meet him only once a year. Because we are a pair of congenial souls.”

* As customary, Goolbi considered as valuable food that Koreans send to special ones on special days.

About manners in friendship, Jaejoong said “Manners must be preserved [even between friends]. Recently I renounced my friendship with 3 fellows. Unfortunately, they crossed the line - the do’s and don’ts in friendship." and “For instance, when there’s an age gap between someone and me, even if I talk informally with him, it means the distance between our hearts is shortened, not that he doesn’t need to observe his manners that should still be preserved between us. I can’t be a friend with that kind of person who ignores the line."

Definition of Friend

People say ‘friend’ is what one soul dwells in two bodies, that you know and understand each other even though you don’t express your feelings. I think this is what friends are. I hope I could be a friend who gives this kind of feeling to somebody.

A Lot of Lotte by Esther Noloc

The smart people from Lotte
posted these photos of him
they know we miss him
and tried to please us, Zikzin.

He looks very handsome there
look at the first with his hair up
and the bag, where will you go?
we want to be your travel partner, though.

And the second with that tongue
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh
Our boy looks so hot
He took a photo of us.

In the third
with the green umbrella
he was singing a capella
One of his beautiful songs.

What was he thinking in the fourth?
How to please his eels more?
Ah, this is a difficult task
Come on tell me how do that? kkk

In the fifth he was trying to explain
how to be a good cowboy
and with the face of a good boy
melted us, we have no choice.

In the two photos with the gray suit
he had in both a killer look
but we are not afraid of you
it's only a pose, you look cute.

In the photo where you're sitting
we like how you wear those jeans
and the two hair colors combine
and the white jacket, you look divine.

In the last two photos of you
we liked that look too
in the first with a shining smile
the second with a finger on the mouth
saying, please calm down
and we calm down in a blink
for you came back to the eels.
