Actor Kim Jae Joong recently showed off close friendship with actor Jin Yi Han.
On July 5, Kim attended a press conference for MBC’s weekend series Dr. Jin in Gyeonggi-do and said, “I knew Jin before we started shooting the series together.”
Kim and Jin play the roles of lifelong friends Kim Kyung Tak and Hong Young Hui in the series. But Jin died after raising a riot and Kim made the audience feel sorry by being tormented with a guilty conscience and feeling troubled about Jin’s death.
Kim said, “We are also very close in real life. Even though he is 8 years older than me, he makes me feel comfortable. We keep in touch and have become close friends.”
The series is a fantasy medical drama about a modern day Korean surgeon, who goes back in time to the Joseon Dynasty and works there as a doctor and creates various episodes. It airs every Saturday and Sunday at 9:55 p.m. on MBC.
[An excerpt from the article that says Jaejoong made people laugh.. XD ]
Kim Jaejoong has been filming pleasantly building relationships with co-actors. As a notable example, it’s Jin Yihan (as Hong YoungHwi) who plays KyungTak’s dearest friend in Dr. Jin. Kim Jaejoong said “I was originally acquainted with him, but we became closer and attached because of filming the scenes where we appear together. He is 8 years older than me, but he treats me freely(=comfortably, easily) like a friend(=like the same age), and we often contact each other.”
To the impish question “Who do you like more between Ji Seong and Yi Han?”, Kim Jaejoong answered “Well.. I like both of them..” and also made people laugh saying “It’s a tricky situation. Next question please?”
