Playing the most unfortunate of three brothers, new stills from JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong for his upcoming MBC drama, Triangle, have been revealed.
The photos were released on April 14 showing the bad-boy side of Kim Jae Joong as he hops on a motorcycle with a full leather outfit. He will be playing Heo Young Dal, who loses his real name Jang Dong Chul after unfortunately splitting with his two other brothers and hitting rock bottom.
“As it’s a character he’s never done before, he came very prepared. He had to ride a motorcycle on the first shoot and he came as Young Dal, who is unafraid of anything,” said production company, Taewon Entertainment. “His transformation that couldn’t be seen through any performance or video was just like his nickname, shocking.”
Kim Jae Joong will be working alongside Lee Bum Soo and ZE:A’s Im Si Wan, who will be playing his character’s brothers.
The drama is scheduled to begin on May 5.
