Kim Jae Joong confirms he is preserving frozen sperm for the possibility of having children in the future.
Male singer and actor Kim Jae Joong has confirmed that he is preserving his sperm for the possibility of having children in the future. Speaking on the Channel A TV program “Grooming Academy”, Kim Jae Joong revealed that he truly wants to date and be in a relationship, but due to his shy nature, he hasn’t been able to “confess” to anyone. The singer also disclosed that he has eight older sisters who are all unmarried. He himself froze his sperm three years ago to protect his genes and create favorable conditions for having children in the future. However, he also noted that the best storage time for frozen sperm is only three to five years, and after that time, the quality of the sperm will decline.
Jae Joong explained the reason for not dating and being in a relationship: “The most basic problem is that I don’t have enough time. Don’t even talk about dating, I can’t even meet friends. I’m only in Korea for seven months a year, and the rest of the time is spent abroad.”
On the program, the MC asked him about his ideal type of woman to marry. The singer said, like most people, he would “feel attracted” to a girl who has many things in common with him, making him feel close instead of hesitant. He also revealed that his favorite type of girlfriend is actress Han Go Eun.
Kim Jae Joong was born in 1986 in a poor family in Korea. During difficult times, he sold gum at subway stations, delivered newspapers, and even sold his blood to make ends meet. His biological mother let him be adopted by a family with eight daughters.
In 2004, Jae Joong debuted as a member of the group DBSK. After DBSK temporarily disbanded in 2010, Jae Joong, Jun Su, and Yoo Chun formed a new group called JYJ. He then pursued solo activities and expanded into the business and fashion fields. He is one of the most versatile idol artists with a handsome appearance, sweet voice, and good songwriting skills. In 2018, Allkpop revealed that Kim Jae Joong has a fortune of over $100 million, making him one of the wealthiest people in the Korean showbiz industry.
