“The real couple of Protect the Boss is Ji Sung and Jaejoong”
“We’ve spent the night together”.
This is a “Protect the Boss” couple (who was recently broadcasted on SBS” that many fans are fond of.
The main couples of the drama are the “boss-secretary” couple, called Bobi couple, and the couple of Seo Na Yoon and Cha Moo Won, called Namu couple. But in addition to these two couples, the “ChaCha” duo (Cha Ji Heon and Cha Moo Won) is very popular among fans. Furthermore, many fans created after this the “ChaCha game”, which consists in reenacting the scene in which Ji Heon, who is mysophobic, touched Moo Won’s cheek when they were taking care of each others after drinking too much.
Actually, the atmosphere before the drama starts was a serious one. However, Ji Sung revealed that Jaejoong and him have slept in the same bed together, wearing only underwears the night following the drama presentation by the production team.
He explained : “After having drunk a few beers with the staff members, they advised us to go to sleep. But when we entered the room, there was only a two-people bed. Eventhough the A/C was on it was pretty hot. When I woke up the next morning, we weren’t wearing anything excepted our underwears. It was really embarassing”. In a recent interview, Jaejoong said to the reporters: “Thanks to Ji Sung, I could improve myself. If you watch the drama, you’ll see that I get better at each scene. I couldn’t have done it without Ji Sung. Despite him working already very hard on his character, he kept taking care of me. I think that’s why my acting got better”.
Ji Sung and Jaejoong became good friends during the drama and kept in touch once the filming was over. According to the information, they meet regularly. All this shows that the real couple of Protect the Boss is Ji Sung and Jaejoong.
“Disagreements? We don’t have any!”
“We never get angry”.
All the filming was done in a good mood. Even though the viewer ratings were of 20%, the people on the set would have given it a 40% rate. Their reason: the Protect the Boss team was often reunited to eat.
First, Ji Sung had bought food for about one hundred people to celebrate the drama’s first rank in the viewerships ranking. Ji Sung then said “I’ve always wanted to eat with the staff but it wasn’t easy beacause everybody was very busy. I’m really happy to celebrate this first rank and to eat with you all!”.
Then Jaejoong asked for Samgyetang delivery (chicken soup with ginseng) for about one hundred people in order to celebrate the Malbok (a korean tradition which consists in having a picnic during the hottest days of the year).
The writter of Protect the Boss, Kwon Gi Young, also offered a meal to the whole staff as a thank you. As for the production team, they organized a party during the Malbok to celebrate for the first rank in the viewership ranking.
A lot of fans also supported the actors and the staff. They’ve sent a lot of gifts not only from Korea but from other countries. Kim Jaejoong’s fan even delivered a meal for the whole staff. Also Choi Gang Hee’s fans went on the set with food for everybody. They hence could enjoy some time with the actress.
Protect the Boss also received support from a lot of celebrities. The actor Jang Geun Suk made a surpise-visit to his friend Ji Sung to encourage him and took the opportunity to offer chicken to everybody. Ji Sung thanked him and posted a picture of themselves on his Me2Day. JYJ members – Jaejoong’s group – Junsu and Yoochun also came to encourage their friend and treated the staff members to a meal. These ones then posted on their twitter account “Yoochun and Junsu came on Protect the Boss filming set to encourage Jaejoong! They treated us to a delicious meal!”.
