JYJ singer brings voice to nature docSinger Kim Jae-joong of the boy group JYJ met with his fans Monday night - kind of. Fans could at least hear his voice, as Kim was narrating a nature documentary on MBC, “The Zoo Is Alive 2.”
In the show, Kim narrated stories of animals that are endangered and threatened with extinction.
“Kim received good reviews for trying the challenge of voice narration on the program,” said CJeS Entertainment, Kim’s agency, yesterday. “His sweet but trustworthy voice effectively delivered the show about baby tigers, gorillas and hippos, to teenagers, who are enjoying their summer vacations.”
The agency also said that many online fans showed much excitement over hearing their favorite singer’s voice in a documentary rather than a song. Reportedly, many fans are asking for Kim to do more programs like “Zoo,” saying the JYJ singer projected genuine feelings of love toward the animals.
Another member of JYJ, Junsu, also narrated the show, in an episode in March.
