Ladies, your dark angel has arrived. After much teasing, Jaejoong has released his first solo music video.
The track hit YouTube at midnight in South Korea and, thanks to its slick visuals and helpings of shirtlessness, the view count is rising rapidly.

Jaejoong, 26, put his all in to the clip, spending an exhausting 60 hours on set. But the final result is every bit worth the effort.
His spokesman says: “We’re confident that the music video [for ‘Mine’] will be one of the most sensational this year. The best team worked on this film with Kim Jaejoong…
“Despite sustaining injuries on set, [he] remained focused until the very end. The staff were so impressed with his work ethic.”
The single is taken from the the JYJ star’s debut solo album, and its heavy rock sound is a departure from his usual works.
Video director Lee Sang Kyu says of bringing the track to life: “While reading the lyrics for ‘Mine’ I felt the loneliness and anguish he felt as an artist wanting to [express himself]. I tried to carefully express those complicated feelings through a wide range of symbolic images.”
There are seven scenes in total in the video, all very different thanks to a clever use of props (live snakes, crows and owls!) and dramatic costumes.
Later this month, Jaejoong will hold a mini concert and fan meeting in Seoul.
