JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong received high praises for his first sageuk (historical drama) acting for MBC’s Dr. Jin.
With episodes one and two of Dr. Jin aired on May 26 and 27, Kim Jae Joong attempted to transform into the character of Kim Kyung Tak, using the sageuk dialect and low tone of voice.
Also, Kim Jae Joong received praises for his diverse expressions showing the strictness of a high officer, the affection towards his loved one, and the pain of being born out of wedlock.
But as it was his first sageuk acting, Kim Jae Joong had awkward moments spread throughout the two episodes, making viewers feel unfortunate towards the actor.
Not appearing in the original Japanese production, the role of ‘flower soldier’ Kim Kyung Tak has been receiving a lot of attention from viewers. After the episodes were aired, ‘Dr. Jin,’ ‘Kim Jae Joong,’ and ‘Kim Young Tak’ were ranked high on various portal sites, receiving comments such as “Eye candy of Joseon times” and “He did great for his first sageuk.”
In addition, a Twitter trend of #JJinDrJin was placed first in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, confirming Kim Jae Joong′s popularity as a hallyu star.
Meanwhile, Living Like a Dream sung by Kim Jae Joong for the soundtrack of Dr. Jin has also been receiving popularity. The song placed high on various music sites.

[NEWS] 120528 ‘Time Slip Dr.Jin’ Kim Jaejoong, First Time Acting For Historical Drama? “Acting Beyond Expectations”
JYJ’s singer and actor Kim Jaejoong took his first step in historical drama through MBC’s new drama ‘Time Slip Dr.Jin.’
In episodes 1 and 2 of ‘Time Slip Dr.Jin’ that were aired on May 26 and27, Kim Jaejoong played the role of Kim Kyung Tak that has clear beliefs and convictions, with a deep-toned voice. He showed both the strict side of a police officer and the soft and warm side toward his fiancée, gaining much compliments for his diverse acting.
Though his acting was far superior compared to what people expected from him, viewers of the drama said that they still saw a bit of fear of being in a historical drama for the first time.
The OST of ‘Time Slip Dr.Jin’ that Kim Jaejoong sang, ‘Living Like a Dream,’ is also becoming an issue. Last week, as soon as the song was released, it made to the top of music charts.
He did very well considering this is his first time acting in seaguk drama. I like his character..totally different from PTB and PH.Commanding office with strong voice and fierce face. But that totally changed when he saw the love of his life. Love the smile on this face ..the face expression changed dramatically fro fierce to soft and loving...Another shock and sad face when his evil dad shot and killed the horse.
|That fierce looking face...|
|The sweetest smile ever...|
|The shocking face when his dad killed the horse|
|The shock and disbelief expression. How could his dad killed that horse..|
Now it is 3.33 am Malaysian time. While writing this ..the OST for Dr Jin accompany me. Can't have enough listening to this song. Jaejoong voice so soothing full of emotion. Almost can feel his pain of loosing his love in front of his eyes.
