JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun: Always keep the faith
JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun had tattooed the same phrase on the same part of their bodies – their chest – with the phrase “Always keep faith” to symbolize their persistence on keeping their beliefs. Kim Jaejoong had revealed the meaning behind the tattoo in his interview with the TV channel of the fashion magazine ELLE, stating, “I realized that there are many inconveniences after getting my tattoos. However, even though there are inconveniences during acting, I don’t regret getting them. They are signs of my existence – to commemorate things that I don’t want to forget, things that consoled me, people/things that I want to thank. I can’t see the tattoos on my back but they remind me to remember what’s important, reflect on what is needed and thank those that need to be thanked.”
