It’s a new record for me to write about any of the JYJ boys twice in a week, and I might’ve written about them three times this week had their new track “Back Seat” dropped but alas that’s not coming until July 29th. It’s promotional time for the trio as they dive back into music and I couldn’t be happier when Jaejoong got a head start last week by releasing a track for the Triangle OST. I always think a singer-actor ought to contribute a track to a drama OST that he or she is acting in, it’s just a nice synergy and for the drama fans adds more depth to the story to hear the actual singing voice accompany scenes from the drama. For example when Lee Seung Gi was in The King 2 Hearts he didn’t sing for the drama but afterwards he covered K. Will‘s track “Love is Crying” and holy bejebus was it a million times more poignant because it was like his character was singing. That’s why I’m over the moon that Jaejoong is singing for Triangle, and not just a forgettable track but actually delivering a song that I love absolutely love. It’s a rock ballad called “Coincidence” and it suits his character and narrative in the drama. On top of that he also dropped a solo pictorial for Star 1 magazine that did weird things to my ovaries when I saw the pictures. It’s incredibly sexy without Jaejoong’s usual overwhelmingly pretty features distracting from his manly aura. I’m so happy his last drama before enlisting ended up being Triangle because a great and memorable performance from him trumps the drama actually being a good watch. Check out the Star 1 pictures and have a listen to Jaejoong’s crooning about love and dreams.
