On March 15, Kim Jaejoong made an appearance on The Life Of Men These Days — Husband Class (translated titled for Men’s Life These Days – Groom’s Class). In the episode, the second-generation idol revealed a day in his life.

During the episode, Kim Jaejoong revealed the reason why he rarely appeared on television shows in Korea. According to the idol, he had been busy promoting in Japan, where he is also a star.

I’ve been promoting overseas. My promotions in Japan, in particular, were lengthy, and so I basically lived there.

In this episode, Kim Jaejoong revealed that in 2022 he was voted by Japanese fans as the K-Pop star they most wanted to marry. The idol revealed he himself was surprised by the poll citing the international stars that accompanied him on the list.

I thought it (the poll) didn’t make sense because underneath me were two BTS members.

Later in the episode, Kim Jaejoong revealed he thought his greatest fault was his boring lifestyle, to which Lee Seung Chul replied, “You have to hurry up and find a girlfriend.” Kim Jaejoong then surprised the other guests when he replied he was indeed dating before revealing who his “partner” was.

I am currently dating… I’m in a relationship with my fans.

Lee Seung Chulwho is one of Korea’s most legendary vocalists and one of the older active celebrities, apologized for Kim Jaejoong’s teasing, stating that celebrities from their time were taught to respond to the question this way.

It’s because he’s a person from my time. During our time, we were taught (to answer) this way.
