Jaejoong to return to Japan activities one month after COVID-19 April Fools controversy


Jaejoong will be resuming activities roughly one month after his COVID-19 April Fools prank controversy.

According to a recent update on his official Japan homepage, he will be appearing on the May 3 episode of NHK BS's 'Tamaki Koji Show.' A video previewing the episode can be seen on NHK's homepage.

Prior to this, Jaejoong made headlines when pretending he had contracted COVID-19 on April 1 KST as apart of an April Fools Day prank. He released the effect of his error, and an hour later, apologized, revealing it was a prank done in order to make fans aware of the virus's urgency. According to previous reports, it was assumed that Jaejoong's Japan activities would be cancelled because of this.

What do you mean "to return"?

He decided not appear on one radio program and one tv program but after that all his appearances in April were broadcasted or rebroadcasted as planned.

And Korean tv-show Travel Buddies was broadcasted on TV as planned.

Tabloid reporters just like to invent something for their "controversy" articles.

Writer, please learn how to do some fact-checking before copying of by words from kmedia! JaeJoong was never cancelled! He decided on his own not to appear in 3 JP shows but he still appeared on Fuji TV on April 9 and his dramas are aired on JP channels & all these shows including NHK's Koji Tamaki were recorded since March! All the truth and details are already shared here https://allkpop.com/articl...
