Jaejoong will be resuming activities roughly one month after his COVID-19 April Fools prank controversy.


According to a recent update on his official Japan homepage, he will be appearing on the May 3 episode of NHK BS’s ‘Tamaki Koji Show‘. A video previewing the episode can be seen on NHK’s homepage.

Prior to this, Jaejoong made headlines when pretending he had contracted COVID-19 on April 1 KST as apart of an April Fools Day prank. He released the effect of his error, and an hour later, apologized, revealing it was a prank done in order to make fans aware of the virus’s urgency. According to previous reports, it was assumed that Jaejoong’s Japan activities would be cancelled because of this.
