  1. Dear Mr. Jo Hyun Jae,

    Greetings from Baku, Azerbaijan.

    I’m mailing to you from Baku. I never heard about you before. Just recently, 2 months ago, I saw the advertisement for “49 Days” drama. I watched all parts so quickly and advised all my friends [to watch it too]. I have friends from different nations of the world.

    I’m studying the Korean language, and watching Korean dramas.
    We can see that in the world many fallen in love and egoistic people. When they find a beautiful person or things, people want to get it. But through your role in the drama can understand other motivation.

    Thank you so much for your sincere heart.

    Big thanks to your parents, that they take care of you so good.

    I wish you true happiness, good luck.

    May true love of God guide you every time and every where.

    • Hi, Feruza Mursalova! Welcome to my JHJ blog.

      First of all, I have to make something clear, this blog does not belong to JHJ. I am just a JHJ fan who blogs about him. But, still, thank you for posting a message for JHJ.

      I suggest that you also follow JHJ’s official FB page for other updates. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/officialjhj

  2. Dear Mr.

    Thank you so much for your quick reply.
    And thank you that you made this fan blogs.



    • You are welcome!

      I am just a JHJ fan who believes in his remarkable talent and appreciates his many wonderful personal qualities.

      I created this blog to share with other people my admiration for the awesome man and talented actor Jo Hyun Jae, so I hope you will have a good time reading the articles about JHJ in my blog.

  3. Just checked this out from among your blogs. I’m happy that I happen to read this and was able to know more about JHJ. Thanks.
    It’s so nice to know your blog. You are indeed a great fan. I hope JHJ would acknowledge your being an avid fan & the hard work you’ve been exerted to your blogs for eveyone’s reading pleasures. You are most appreciated.
    Just a thought, because he is the youngest of the other 2 sisters, that maybe the reason why he looks so sweet & nice. Love him in love letter, the way he said “I love you” to his mother there, it sounded very sweet.

    • Hi, Bernadette! Thank you for your kind words. Just knowing that I make other JHJ fans happy with this blog is acknowledgement enough for me. No need for JHJ to acknowledge me. Most probably he doesn’t even know I exist. But I am fine with that.

  4. Hi, do you know where I could watch some of Jo Hyun Jae’s earliest dramas like Sunshine of love or First love? I searched them everywhere and I can’t find them 😦
    Also, what does it say when you try to register to Jo Hyun Jae’s personal website? I complete all field and then there is a box in Korean showing up, with characters that of course I cannot read. do you have any idea what does it say? Did you manage to log in on his website?

    • Marilynn, on the right side of the box for “userID,” there is a gray box with Korean characters in it. You have to click that box after typing in your User ID. The Korean characters mean you have to confirm if the ID you typed in is still available. Do the same thing for the box for “Nickname.”

      Then fill in all the other boxes, then click submit. Everything should be ok.

      Yes, I am registered to JHJ’s website.

      Re: JHJ’s early dramas
      “First Love”, only eps 1-6 are Eng-subbed. You can watch at this link: http://www.veoh.com/find/?query=jo+hyun+jae&mode=video&lang=ALL&offset=40

      “Sunshine of Love” used to be available on veoh, but I cannot find it now.

  5. My kissable Johyunjae, my beautiful man , you are the only someone that I love in this world . Your crazy: Ghazal(Tala) from Iran

  6. He is very kind hearted person..I hope he can find the right woman for him..but wait is he married?

  7. Hi, my friend, dear prissymom Jhj , Thank you sincerely for this good news . I’m so glad to hear that JHJ is not yet married , because my heart wants that……………. your sincerely : Ghazal(Tala) Maboodi or (Ahoo Ahooi) from Iran

  8. Hello dear, I cant believe he has his personal fb account. Is that real? Keep posting. I just want to appreaciate you for what you do 🙂

    • Yes, it is true, JHJ has a personal FB. But, I should warn you not to expect too much from it because he hardly posts on that. I don’t want you to feel disappointed.

      Thank you for the appreciation. 🙂

      • Aw thanks, it’s just so unusual for a celebrity to have his personal account public but I’ll take note of that. Have a great day! 🙂

  9. Hi Prissymom,im an avid fan of jhj from canada.hope u can post where to watch young storm with eng sub.thank you!

    • Hi, January! Sorry, I don’t know where to watch YS with English subs. I don’t even know where to watch the whole drama even without subs. 😦

    • There are 2 ways you can use to join instagram

      1. by using your smartphone – this is the easiest way. from your smartphone you can download the instagram app. once you have downloaded the app, it will be easy to sign up to instagram. if you don’t have a smartphone, you can use someone else’s smartphone to sign up, then later you can access your instagram account from your personal computer (PC)

      2. register using your PC. you need to download a software to your PC, this software is available online for free. just type “register to instagram through PC” and you will be given several options on how to do this. just follow the instructions that will be given to you online.

  10. I visit this blog before but this is the first time that i read the news about his family. So sad that his father was gone.What is agent orange? I wonder if he resembles his mother and sisters. I saw on instagram that he has a niece. Its heartwarming to see that he adores her. 🙂 Anyway I like him since I saw his drama only you with han chae young.

  11. I admire this guy since 2005. I hope he return very soon and hope he would choose a project that would draw new fans. He needs to work with Song Hye Kyo or Ha Ji Won or Jo Jin Moo…but whatever he chooses next…it doesn’t matter, for sure he’s gonna do his best. It’s been a year since Yong Pal so he should come back now.
