Youngwoong Jaejoong “There was a time when I had no money so I had to sell gum”

Even though right now, they are Asia’s greatest stars, DBSK has had some tear jerking times.

On <Happy Together Season3>, which aired on the 9th, DBSK’s Youngwoong Jaejoong revealed that during his trainee days, he had no money so he worked as an extra and then sold gum, which caused a lot of people to be shocked.

At the time, Jaejoong left his hometown (충남 공주 (Choongnam Gongju) with only had the dream to become a singer. He came up to Seoul and didn’t even have 15만원 (150 dollars) which caused him to be kicked out of the study room.

So he desperately got a job as as one out of the 100,000 extras in the movie <태극기 휘날리며 (Taegukki)>. For that he got paid 8만 원 (80 dollars) and with that he bought gum and chocolate and sold them at food places. But all he got was disregard and suspicions.

Jaejoong, who was at his wits end, visited a super market and the market lady, who heard his unfortunate situation gave him the money he needed to solve his boarding problem.

Jaejoong said with a heavy heart “If that person didn’t help me out at that time, I wouldn’t be here right now.”.
