Jaejoong got adopted when he was only 3 years old. He did not know that he had different biological parents. Jaejoong's real mother was interviewed by a magazine and explained that she had no other choice. 

"My husband lost all his money to a fraud. We split up in 1989. I used to serve at a restaurant from 10 AM to 11 PM. I couldn't take care of Jaejoong. There weren't extended daycares or kindergarten back in the days. And I had to feed him leftovers from the restaurant. Things were not good. An acquaintance of mine suggested that I give him up for adoption. She had an older brother who had eight daughters and thought that family would take great care of Jaejoong as the youngest so", explained Jaejoong's biological mother.

By the year 2004, Jaejoong debuted with TVXQ and his biological mother knew where to locate him, so she tried to reach out. That was when Jaejoong learned about his family history. Jaejoong enlisted in the army to serve his military duty in the year 2005, but he had to fix his family register. Jaejoong belonged in his foster parents and also to his biological parents.

The biological mother of Jaejoong had to file a case in the court just to verify that she is Jaejoong's biological mother. And Jaejoong's foster parents responded to verify that they have been in custody for most of Jaejoong's life. The nature of the case was not hostile but it stirred up a lot of rumors about Jaejoong's different families. Jaejoong spoke up about the issue.

Jaejoong said, "I wish to continue living as Kim Jaejoong, as I have always had. I also want my biological and adoptive families to continue understanding and loving each other."

How would you feel if you found out that you are adopted? Some may feel depressed and angry with biological parents. But there are other people who would be so understanding and will try communicating with their families.

Maybe you are unhappy about being adopted but think about the valid reasons why the biological parent needed to do this. Try to open up with your friends and loved ones. This can release your thoughts and negative feelings.

Life is wonderful, you just need to forgive. This is not easy but time can heal all wounds. Do not stay angry with your family and talk to them when you are ready.
