At least he didn’t commit a crime might be the only positive thought around singer-actor Kim Jaejoong and his thoroughly brain dead gaffe. Jaejoong posted on his SNS a message to his fans that he got coronavirus and was quarantining now, apologizing for living carelessly. He should apologize for for living brainlessly instead because a few hours later he confessed that it was all just an April Fool’s Day prank. I’m sorry, but in this highly serious and sensitive period where world safety and economies are being wrecked, joking about getting COVID-19 is inappropriate, not funny, and just seriously a WTF thing to do. Go quarantine yourself from SNS and reflect, Jaejoong, I expected better from you.
Japan and even some his diehard Japanese fans are uber pissed especially since this week a top veteran actor and comedian Shimura Ken died from COVID-19 a week after contracting it.
