Fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar on Tuesday released editorial photos and interview snippets of singer-actor Jaejoong, ahead of its February issue.
The K-pop star, who is a member of idol group JYJ, exuded "mysterious sex appeal" and "provocative charisma" in the black-and-white photo shoot.
Jaejoong thanked his fans in the accompanying interview, saying, "Sometimes, I don't like myself, so I'm really touched by all the fans who embrace me unconditionally.
"When I receive all their love, there's an absolute trust there. I wouldn't want to sacrifice myself for anybody, but if I had to give up a part of myself, I would do it for my fans."
Harper's Bazaar responded positively to Jaejoong's friendly demeanor and down-to-earth personality on set.
The 28-year-old heartthrob is currently starring in the KBS drama "Spy" as a government agent-turned-North Korean analyst.
He is already garnering praise for his role as a "mommy's boy" in the suspense-filled series, which aired its first episode on Jan. 9. The drama airs every Friday at 9:30 p.m.
