On July 12, C-jes Entertainment, Jae Joong’s agency, released some composite pictures with Jae Joong superimposed on them. These are currently attracting a lot of attention on several online community sites.
In the episode of Doctor Jin that aired on July 8, Hong Young Rae (played by Park Min Young), a girl Kim Kyung Tak (played by Jae Joong) loves, recalls her memories about Yoo Mina in 2012 and shows there is possibility that Hong came to the Joseon period from the future like Jin Hyuk (played by Song Seung Hun).
In addition, it’s revealed that gisaeng Chun Hong (played by Lee So Yeon) is a woman that Jin Hyuk once met at his hospital in 2012 in the scene of her falling off a cliff, running away from the gisaeng room.
Except for Lee Ha Eung (played by Lee Bum Soo), the only character who actually existed in history, Kim Kyung Tak is the only person who didn’t come from the future.
Viewers superimposed Kim Kyung Tak’s pictures on to some scenes of SBS TV’s drama series Protect the Boss, in which Jae Joong previously appeared, in order to make him look like a time traveler. The pictures of Jae Joong as Kim Kyung Tak seem humorous as they are next to pictures of him in modern times.
On July 10, Jae Joong increased viewers’ curiosity about the next episodes of Doctor Jin by tweeting a picture of himself with a bruise. He commented, “I think the episodes of 15th and 16th are interesting.”
