According to translated reports out of Taiwan, Jaejoong has been chosen by Taiwan Entertainment Magazine Pop as the most popular star from Korea. Jaejoong popular features were a hot topic months ago when a popular Taiwanese group mentioned his big eyes and small mouth as features they admired about him.
His popularity in other countries like Japan and China also contributes to his designation in this area. The fact that JYJ’s new album sold half a million copies in pre-orders alone has to have something to do with it as well.
From the report:
Jaejoong’s debut in Sunao-Nara, the Japanese drama, was highly anticipated. He gained much respect from his co-stars, the writer and the director of the project.
And there was another slap to SM that they better be careful how they treat the artists they are at odds with. Han Kyung — the Chinese member from Super Junior who has also sued for emancipation, uh, I mean, sued to get out from under SM’s tyrannical exclusivity contract — was voted as the most popular Chinese idol in Taiwan.
