After a hiatus, Man Candy Mondays is back. Let the thirst/spazzing commence.
Kim Jaejoong (aka Jaejoong, aka Hero Jaejoong, aka Jejung) is a South Korean singer, songwriter, model, actor and director. He is best known for being a member of K-Pop group JYJ and for being a former member of TVXQ. He’s also a solo artist, as if anyone doubted his pop idol credentials beforehand.
Jaejoong started his life as a bit of a self-starter and his dabbling into nearly every field accessible to a pop star seems to indicate that that quality has served him well in life. Upon arriving in Seoul as a teen, he took on various odd jobs to help make ends meet. He was also tone-deaf and he took to practicing by himself to get better, a skill which would pay off in spades when he would join K-Pop wrecking ball crew TVXQ and then JYJ.
Aside from being talented enough to go from “kid that couldn’t hold a note” to one of the most famous K-Pop singers of his time who also branched out (successfully!) into acting, composing and stage direction, Jaejoong also has the good fortune of being handsome in that “distinct” variety that is usually saved for high fashion. His eyes are striking, severe and set a little wide. Add in all the talent and man candy almost doesn’t do him justice. Almost.
Jaejoong is so handsome that when he gazes at the sky, the clouds weep tears of joy.
Jaejoong’s wide variety of talents are the basis for the Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Man in the World.
