Jaejoong said, "Being forgotten when I enlisted was my biggest worry, and that's why I wanted to continue to keep working. Military service is a duty. However, the fear of being absent and a period of resting wasn't something I could control." He also joked, "Before I entered the military, many people told me I only looked good because of my hair. Please don't mistake it, I look okay even with short hair."
He concluded the interview by promoting his upcoming drama 'Manhole', saying, "It feels surreal that it's been 14 years already since I debuted. There are times when my memories from ten years ago are hazy, so every moment right now still feels new and interesting. 'Manhole' is something you can enjoy while laughing - the drama is a young and refreshing drama so please stay tuned."
