Actor Ji Sung (34) and JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong (25) will be greeting their Japanese fans with “Protect the Boss.”
Starring both men, the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “Protect the Boss” will be aired in Japan mid next month. Japan’s KNTV and DATV will be first airing the 18 episode drama on 10 November and 12 November respectively, once a week. KNTV’s broadcast will be kicking off on Tuesday at 10pm (T/N: I believe they mean Thursday since 10 November is a Thursday), and DATV on Saturday at 11pm. Both broadcasts are during prime timeslots.
This success is credited to Jisung and Kim Jaejoong’s hallyu popularity. Ji Sung had gained the love of the Japanese fans after his performance in SBS’s “All In” and cemented his position with “New Heart.” Kim Jaejoong, with his previous singing activities in Japan, naturally enjoys an explosive popularity. In 2009, his collaboration with Han Hyo Joo in “Postman to Heaven” was his first foray into acting for the Japanese fans.
Ji Sung’s side said “Recently when (he) participated in the Busan International Film Festival, many foreign fans were gathered, and we could once again feel his popularity as a hallyu star. Together with the participation of Kim Jaejoong, we anticipate a great popularity (for the drama) in Japan.”
